How To Find A Song When You Can't Remember Band Or Song Name

Click here to access the Google Advanced Groups Search form.
Enter the word "music" and up to 9 words from your song in lower case in the "with all of the words" field.
Select "100 messages" for number of results to display.
Methods to search online. Read here.

Tunatic is a freeware which can tag the song you love but don't know what it is!!
When you click Tunatic's ‘search’ button, Tunatic transmits the song's features to the Tunatic server. The server searches its database and returns the matching song.
Tunatic is the very first song search engine based on sound for your computer.

To run Tunatic, you need:

* A PC running Windows 2000, XP or better
or A macintosh running Mac OS X v10.2 or better
* Internet access
* A microphone plugged to your computer. Alternatively, you can plug your sound source directly to your computer.
# You canplug your sound source (e.g. radio) directly to your computer, through an inexpensive audio cable. Tunatic will work even better, since there will be no quality loss in the signal.
# Tunatic can be used to identify songs played by your computer (from, say, an Internet radio) -- without any microphone. * On the Macintosh, this can be achieved using software such as SoundFlower or Jack OS X. Both of them are free!
* Most PC sound cards allow you to select "What You Hear" (also named "Stereo Mix" or "Mixed Output") as input. To get there, right-click Tunatic's window, select "preferences", then click the "Configure..." button.
* If your hardware allows it, plug your sound output to your sound input. It's ugly, but it works!

Internet Speed Test

Of so many Internet Speed Test sites we have tried, none are more consistent than which determine your true bandwidth on any connection, such as Broadband, Cable, Satellite and DSL Modems. To give you the most accurate results, their internet speed test was based on a research paper by Liang Cheng2 and Ivan Marsic from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey. The paper explains in detail how to accurately measure Digital Subscriber Line Networks and is used by our speed test.

However, there are times when an internet speed test site gives an unrealistic reading. You can gauge it with the actual feel in your internet browsing. Reconfirm with your Internet Provider speed test site or one near your area.For McAfee Speedometer click here! For Streamyx click here. Common sense always prevail and it is found more often than not the comparison always indicate the lower readings are more realistic.

Bandwidth conversion calculator |

Network cards in your computer transmit data at either 10Mbps, 100Mbps or 1000Mbps. This data travels through an Ethernet cable and is received by whatever device it's connected to: another computer, a cable or DSL modem, a router, or whatever. In a nutshell, it's the maximum speed of your LAN (Local Area Network). Keep in mind, that this is NOT the speed of your Internet connection or your WAN (Wide Area Network).

In telecommunications, data transfer is usually measured in bits per second. On Ethernet local area networks, data transfer can be as fast as 10 megabits per second. In computers, data transfer is often measured in bytes per second. For example, when a "1 Mbps" connection is advertised, it usually means that the maximum achievable download bandwidth is 1 megabit/s (million bits per second), which is actually 0.125 MB/s (megabyte per second) or 125KB/s/(kilobyte per second).

The data transfer rate is commonly used to measure how fast data is transferred from one location to another. Data transfer rates are typically measured in bits per second (bps) as opposed to bytes per second, which can be understandably confusing. Connect Rate is measured in Kb/s (or Kbs same thing, the s just mean per second), Mb/s, Gb/s etc etc, which is short for Kilobits, Megabits and Gigabits per second etc etc, key thing being connect rate is measured in bits per second. And Connect rate is the rate that you are physically connected to something at. b (little b or lower case) for bit, and big or upper case B for byte, remember that. Now there are 8 bits in 1 byte. (for e.g. 1000 kilobits is 125 kilobytes) So with a connect rate of 1000Kbps your MAX transfer rate is 1000/8 = 125KB/s as expressed in your torrent software. Read More on "What is Data transfer rate?"

Due to lots of variables over a long distance (weather, humidity, line quality, temperature, static, interference, line noise etc[More notoriously the capacity of the Internet Provider is oversubscribed]), the rate your are connected can be less than subscribed rate that you could be connected to at the time of reconnecting.

Gmail & Images

Gmail is not displaying images.

Each is an alternative solution on its own.

1) Clicked the "Display images" link at the top of the email?

2) In IE:
Go to Internet Options
Go to Security
Click on the Internet icon
Click on the Custom level button
Scroll down and near the bottom, look for "Display Mixed Content"
Change it to Enable
Display video and animation on a webpage that does not use external media player - Enable
Next click on "ok" then followed by "Apply" to be done.

3) Right before you open an e-mail which contains pictures, you'll probably get a pop-up message asking if you wish to see only content which is secure - you should answer 'No,' and then you will be able to see the pictures OK.

4) In Gmail click on "Settings" (top right of the page), then "General," then scroll down to "Browser connection." The options there are "Always use https" and "Don't always use https." Choose "Don't always use https", save setting, logout or close browser and log back in with only http in the address bar, and images will display.

OR setting to always use https & maually change the URL to
Gmail default browser settings need to be https.
To disable or re-enable this feature in Gmail:

1.Sign in to Gmail.
2.Click Settings at the top of any Gmail page.
3.Set 'Browser Connection' to 'Always use https.'
4.Click Save Changes.
5.Manually change the URL to to start accessing Gmail via http.

Please note that selecting 'Always use https' will prevent you from accessing Gmail via HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol). If you trust the security of your network, you can turn this feature off at any time.

4) Go into Settings Tab within Gmail, under Labs, and ENABLE the Picassa web email option. Don't forget to go to the bottom and SAVE CHANGES or it won't work. Gmail will then reload and you should be able to see images in messages again.

5) Gmail view: standard -click basic HTML at the very bottom of the page

6) This problem can be fixed by configuring your firewall option. You will once more get to see the images
in the mail.

7) Try viewing them when Firefox is run in safe-mode... if it works then the problem is one of your installed extensions...or a setting within..
This is only for Firefox safe-mode...Don't check off any of it's safe-mode boxes...

8) Norton may be the cause of the blocking of pictures. Do you use the Norton toolbar?... if so, then you might want to uninstall that bar...or disable it to see what happens.

Make your own passport photos

A passport picture is just a small picture. at the size of 4.5cmX3.5cm (5cmX5cm American, 5cmX7cm Canadian and there may be other sizes for different countries.

Pictures taking required by Passport Office

* Two identical photos.
* Photos must be taken within last month.
* The photo must be taken against a light background (either white, off white, cream or light grey so that your features are distinguishable and contrast against the background).
* Clear and of good quality.
* Printed on low gloss, plain white photo-quality paper with no watermarks, embossing or printing on the back. Using professional or high-res inkjet printer
* Free from copyright (school photos are not acceptable)
* Unmounted 45mm high x 35mm wide. (do not trim bigger photos to meet this condition)
* Full face (without sunglasses and normally without a hat unless the applicant wears a head covering due to their religious beliefs or their ethnic background, which is acceptable)

Taking the photo:
Take a white sheet and used grips to tightly fasten it to a background. The grips pulled the sheet to create an even surface perfect for passport photos to be taken against. Placed a chair around a foot (30cm) in front of the background, this way a shadow from the subject wasn't cast in the picture. If you're using flash, having them this close to the background will also stop the picture from being underexposed or dark. If you are using flash remember to watch-out for red eye and reflections as these are not allowed to be on a passport photograph.

The picture is to be framed through the viewfinder so you will have a tight crop of the head and shoulders and take several images so you will have a variety to choose from. They are to be taken at full resolution, although as the image size is only going to be small you can use a lower setting of around 640x480 pixels.

Editing the Photograph:

Once you decided on the chosen image you place it into Photoshop to edit the size to meet the requirements of the Identity and Passport Service. This process is not manipulating the photograph, You don't alter the light or any of the facial features just the size of the image.


The 640x480 dimensions are not quite the same proportions as the necessary for example 35x50mm Malaysia passport size, so when you reduce the image it won't be the exact size necessary. There's a useful trick that allows you to reduce the picture at the same time as making a crop.

In Photoshop when you select the Crop tool it gives you the option of specifying a fixed crop size to a necessary resolution. See the bar above. We've keyed in a 3.5cm width,5.0cm height and 300dpi resolution. Now when you make a crop it will save the crop to the size keyed in the figures, doing the whole job in one go.
Now we need to place two copies of the photo on a canvas ready to print. With the cropped picture still on view select All (Ctrl+A) and copy (Ctrl+C). Now select new (Ctrl+N).Your program will show a box that has the sizes of your picture already set. Make sure the background colour is light blue (Malaysia) and select Background Colour from the contents options (canvas colour). Change the dimensions to just over 2x the indicated height and width (8cm x 10cm will be fine) and click okay. Now click (Ctrl+V) to paste the picture you've just copied onto the newly opened light blue canvas.

Alternate Background color change:
With the picture open in the editing program make a selection of the colored background. Use either the lasso selection tool, the magic wand or a similar, to draw around the hair and then use the +/- selection keys to make the selection accurate around the hairline. Feather the selection using a pixel value of around 30. This will be enough for our 640x480 resolution and ensures that the changes you make to the background don't make the photo look like a bad cut out..
Now we will change the background to make it to the color of choice. Select layer, set desired foreground color and press Option/Alt+Delete. To apply background color press Command/Ctrl+Delete. Also, you can use paint bucket tool. See Also Here

Use the Move tool to drag the picture into the top left corner. Then paste the second picture into place (Ctrl+V) and again move this so that it aligns up to the first pic leaving a small gap between the two that will be used to cut the pictures when printed.

As we're going the traditional passport booth route we've printed four on a sheet. Aligning the bottom two below the first two. The other two can be sent off to Nan and boyfriend for purse/wallet fodder! When you have everything aligned use the Crop tool to trim off any unwanted surround, again leaving a slight white border around the set of four photos for trimming purposes when printed.

Next we are ready to print. Hopefully you will have a program that allows you to set up the printing specs. The passport leaflet indicates that a resolution of 1440dpi is necessary. Most modern printers output at this resolution. So choose the 'best' print setting. Also use high quality paper. We've gone for the 4x6in 180gsm Inkjet paper. If there's an option centre the image and select 4x6 from the list of paper sizes. Do not select 'scale to fit media' because this will enlarge the photos making them too big. VIA

How do I change the background color of a passport picture in photoshop cs4.?
The easiest way to do this would be to trace around the face using either the pen tool or the polygonal lasso tool (using a 1px feathering on the polygonal lasso usually works well with 150dpi effects, 2-3px feathering on 300dpi). Once you've done this, hit control+J to copy your selection onto a new layer precisely above the original layer. This way, you can play with the color replacement of the original layer without compromising the face itself.

As far as changing the color, the 'replace color' function is the easiest route - You'll find it under Image > adjustments > replace color. Then just click on the background color with your eyedropper, adjust the fuzziness slider until only the background is selected, and change the color using the palette on the toolbar. You may have already tried this and gotten the blue 'bleed' you were describing - but if you have the face copied to a top layer as described above, you won't get that bleeding issue.

Clean Bootable CD-Rom (for BIOS upgrade)

How to create a bootable CD-Rom to update/flash their BIOS, on a system that has no floppy disk drive?
This Clean Bootable CD-Rom can be used for flashing your BIOS or other programs that need to be run from a "clean-booted" Dos operating system.

The steps to create are:

1. Download Clean Boot CD package v2.0 (596KB) and unpack it into any directory you like.

2. Add your own files, needed to upgrade your BIOS, to the cds\clean\bootdisk\ folder. You have about 2.5MB available space on the bootimage (the CD uses 2.88MB floppy emulation). Do not add your files to cds\clean\files\ folder!
Optionally you can edit the file cds\clean\bootdisk\autorun.bat and append a line to automatically run your flash program.

3. When you're done customizing, run "build-clean.cmd" to build your ISO image and burn it to your CD writer. VIA

Nintendo DS Game & eMULATOR

The Nintendo DS (ニンテンドーDS?, sometimes abbreviated to DS or NDS) is a handheld game console developed and manufactured by Nintendo. It was released in 2004 in Canada, the United States, and Japan. The console features a clamshell design, similar to the Game Boy Advance SP, with two LCD screens inside—with the bottom one being a touchscreen. The Nintendo DS also features a built-in microphone and supports wireless IEEE 802.11 (Wi-Fi) standards,[5] allowing players to interact with each other within short range (10–30 m, depending on conditions) or online with the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service, which launched later in the console's lifespan. The Nintendo DS is the first Nintendo console to be released in North America before Japan. Source

List of Nintendo DS games

Nintendo DS eMULATOR
DS emulator is a program you run on your computer that allows you to run other programs meant for a different computer, video game console or another operating system. There are free emulators for MS-DOS, SNES, N64, SEGA Genesis old Apple II, Commodore C64, and Timex ZX81s, and even for many more game devices such as Atari and Sony game consoles.

An emulator, in the most general sense, duplicates (provides an emulation of) the functions of one system with a different system, so that the second system appears to behave like the first system. Unlike a simulation, it does not attempt to precisely model the state of the device being emulated; it only attempts to reproduce its behavior.

A common form of emulation is that of a software emulator, a piece of computer software that allows certain computer programs to run on a platform (computer architecture and/or operating system) other than the one for which they were originally written. It does this by "emulating", or reproducing, the behavior of one type of computer on another by accepting the same data, executing the same programs, and achieving the same results. A popular use of emulators is to run software and games, often referred to as ROMs. Source

New emulator development found for the NDS, called IDeaS which is the symbolic of Ideas and DS and the second best (after DeSmuME) emu progressing so far.

PeerBlock the IP Blocker

PeerBlock is a type of program known as an "IP Blocker" (Wikipedia article). IP addresses (Wikipedia article) are used to identify a computer whenever it connects to the internet.

PeerBlock lets you control who your computer "talks to" on the Internet. By selecting appropriate lists of "known bad" computers, you can block communication with advertising or spyware oriented servers, computers monitoring your p2p activities, computers which have been "hacked", even entire countries! They can't get in to your computer, and your computer won't try to send them anything either.

And best of all, it's free!

Whenever you are downloading be sure to have some protection like "PeerBlock" PeerBlock is a new version (aka a "fork") of the popular Peer Guardian 2 software. It blocks "known bad" computers from accessing yours, for example governments, corporate entities, and those flagged for anti-p2p activities. Peer Block maintains the functionality of the original Peer Guardian 2 program, but includes fixes for various issues that remain unaddressed in the latest (~2 year old) version of PG2.

Issue One(Resolved): Unable to connect to streamyx connection
Thank to Craven Lim for latest firmware version AzTech_WL950RT4_1.1.5.5 (Feb.2010) received. Download here. Download here Mirror
Upgraded firmware, and reconfigured WL950RT4.
The WL950RT4 new version changes the WL950RT4 IP address from to 10.0.0.x, andt detects an IP conflicts with the Riger.

Thank Craven Lim for directing to reset security key under wireless/security tab. May have to repeat until Configuration Homepage does portray Security key. Note: 128 Bits WEP key type is ASCII with 13 characters in alphabet & numbers.

New wireless router and a PC-less Skype conference phone from Aztech

Aztech's new wireless router targets bandwidth-hungry file sharers and application users. Based on the 802.11n standard, the WL950RT4 boasts five-times the wireless data rates and coverage compared of previous Wireless N models. Source.


User Reviews:

User interface/friendliness
In general, the Aztech's router UI is not cluttered, clean and fast loading. Good n enjoyable when doing configuring.

Here are some screenshots

The aztech router comes with option/function which are advanced despite detailed explanation in the manual.
This may pose problems to new users, such options can be ignored though, because the Setup Wizard will do~! :)

WIFI function
The aztech has in its firmware, the function of AP, bridge and repeating/WDS.
This is a definitely worth buy since you probably wont get it in other N routers!

Users of other DDNS server will be disappointed. Because options available are only DynDNS and 3322[??]

Port forwarding
It may look normal, however an issue has arise as would be mentioned in the Misc/Rant section.
