Tasuta Arvutimaailma tellimus 50 kiiremale

Postitus kõigile eestlastele, kes mu blogist on aegade jooksul huvitunud!

Tasuta Arvutimaailma tellimus 50 kiiremale

Arvutimaailm on Eesti vanim tehnoloogiaajakiri, mis ilmub 1993. aastast. Tänapäeval on Arvutimaailma eesmärk lisaks uute tehnoloogiate tutvustamisele ka Eesti IT-äri laiem kajastamine.

Viimase Emori uuringu andmeil on Arvutimaailmal 27 000 lugejat, valdavalt vanuses 15–39 aastat. Samuti näitab statistika, et ajakirjal on 6000 naislugejat. Enam kui pooled lugejatest tituleerib uuring “valgekraedeks”, ⅔ on püsilugejad. Arvutimaailm on tellitud umbes tuhandesse ettevõttesse. Geograafiliselt jaotub lugejaskond üle Eesti suhteliselt ühtlaselt, jäädes keskmisest madalamaks Virumaal ning olles pisut üle keskmise Tartus ja Lõuna-Eestis (jutt ajakirja enda keskmisest).

Möödunud aasta jooksul on Arvutimaailm käsitlenud muu hulgas järgmisi teemasid: “Kas eelistada kodumaist või brändiarvutit?”, “Turvalisuse inimelement”, “MarkIT tungib Euroopasse”, “Omamise vaev või rendiõnn?”, “Veebiteenused reeglite ikkes”, “Mõra digiallkirjas”, “Julge visioon viis Osta.ee kasumisse”, “Vabavara ei anna säästu kergelt”. Lisaks kõvaketaste, pihuarvutite, skannerite, printerite, LCD-ekraanide, GPS-ide valmisveebide ja palju muu võrdlustestid või uute toodete üksiktestid. Sõna on saanud suur osa Eesti IT-äri ja -elu võtmeisikuid.

Arvutimaailma toimetuse blogi asub aadressil: http://arvutimaailm.blogspot.com/

50 kiiremat veebipäeviku pidajat, kes kordavad seda postitust täies mahus enda blogis (pealkiri + Arvutimaailma tutvustus + kampaania kirjeldus), saavad Arvutimaailma tellimuse pooleks aastaks tasuta.

Selleks tuleb saata aadressile am@am.ee:
1. oma postituse link;
2. ees- ja perekonnanimi;
3. täpne tellimisaadress;
4. kontakttelefon.
Ühtlasi nõustud tasuta poolaastatellimusele kandideerides sellega, et Arvutimaailm saadab hiljem e-kirjaga teate, kas jõudsid 50 kiirema hulka, ning poole aasta pärast meeldetuletuse, et soovi korral tellimust pikendada.

Introduction 8800gts review finder

Introduction 8800gts review finder

It is an odd situation indeed when technology is entirely obsolesced within eight months of release, but it is a pattern that NVIDIA are clearly promoting. The release of the 7800 GTX in June of 2005 was really quite a groundbreaking leap in performance. By March of this year however, a marginally faster 7900 GT could be had for just nearly half the price that the 7800 GTX originally released for. Arguably not a simple refresh product, the 7900 GTX brought even greater levels of performance to the high end segment, only to be overshadowed by the 7950 GX2 three months later (as far as single cards go).

Fixing The Firefox Memory Leak

in case you didn’t know Firefox has a small memory leakage problems that can cause your pc to freeze up. basically what happens is when you minimize Firefox it stops consuming memory, however when you maximize it again the memory usage will increase, sometimes even doubling. fortunately, there is a small fix that you can implement.
heres what you do:

1. Open Firefox and go to the Address Bar. Type in about:config and then press Enter.
2. Right Click in the page and select New -> Boolean.
3. In the box that pops up enter config.trim_on_minimize. Press Enter.
4. Now select True and then press Enter.
5. Restart Firefox.
tada, Firefox will stop eating your memory.

How to improove Windows XP performance

First, what is the kernel? Well kernel is a piece of code that is considered the "heart" of the operating systems. It's responsible for managing system resources and the basic communication between hardware and software. It translates any functions between the applications and the CPU, main memory and other devices.

Accessing the kernel from the hard disk is usually the default on any operating system. You can set it to automatically load in the system's RAM at the boot and get better performances.



First open the Regedit tool (Start Menu - Run - regedit.exe). By using the icons in the left panel, navigate to HKEY LOCAL MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management (by clicking the + sign near each and expanding it).
In the right panel you can see the values assigned. Double click the DisablePagingExecutive to edit that field and change it to 1. Be sure to make the change in decimal.

This will make all drivers and kernel to run from system's memory.

You can also edit LargeSystemCache value and change it to 1 in decimal. This will improve kernel access time.

Then you can edit IOPageLockLimit field. Change it according to these rules:

- 4000 if you have 128 RAM or less
- 10000 if you have 256 RAM installed
- 40000 for more

This will change the number of bytes for input-output operations and will increase system performance.

2) Boot

To improve boot times edit the following value:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\SessionManager\MemoryManagement\PrefetchParamete rs with Regedit like in 1).

Change this value from 3 to 5 in decimal. This will improove boot time with 5 to 20 seconds depending on your system's speed.

3) Shutdown

There are some tweaks that help your computer to shutdown faster.

a) automatically end any task running (Caution: this will disable any confirmations like "Do you want to save document X before closing?")

Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop using Regedit and edit the AutoEndTask key. Set it to 1 in decimal.

cool.gif make the open applications close faster at shutdown

Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop and set the WaitToKillAppTimeout and HungAppTimeout keys to 1000. Make these two changes in the HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop too.

c) make any service close faster

Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Contro l and set the WaiToKillServiceTimeout to 1000.

Unlock SkyBox

To people from Europe
http://rapidshare.com/files/29635238/ulsb.rar

Here i got some tricks to unlock the sky box, u can also watch free sky boxoffice movies on Your tv with that.

Guide For Getting Free Stuff

Ok, if you are like me you have heard so much about the FreeIpods and FreeFlatScreens websites on different forums, blogs, IM's, etc, you are about to puke. So am I. But yet the draw of getting an Ipod for doing basically nothing is pretty strong. I dismissed all the "stories" of people getting their ipods as the marketing machine at work. However, when Kevin Rose published that not only did he receive his, but a few of his friends did as well, I figured I might take a chance and give it a go. Today I received proof that it does indeed work. Yep, I got my iPod.

Whats in it for them?
Step 1. Collect Names.
Step 2. Send those names items worth $200 or more
Step 3. ?????
Step 4. Profit

Before I signed up, I wanted to get to the bottom of the ?????. I didn't want any sweaty, filth pushing webmonkeys to have all my info, so I did my research. Gratis Internet, the parent company of the FreeIpods, FreeFlatscreens, etc. sites, recently did an interview with Wired Magazine.In this article Gratis states that they are acting as Head Hunters for companies (more on that later) and are paid between $50-$90 per referral. Although this seems like a lot of money, this is nothing compared to what these companies spend for print advertising which does not guarentee ANY customers. So now we know what ?????? equals. ??????=$50-$90 for Gratis per guranteed customer (referral sites).

How Does it Work?You sign-up on one (or more) of the following websites:

http://www.FreeDesktopPC.com/?r=13082204 This site gives away free flat screen monitors and TVs. At the time of this writing the following flat screens were available: Sony 19" LCD, Samsung 15" SyncMaster 510MP LCD TV, Samsung SyncMaster 710N LCD Monitor, Sony 27" FD Trinitron WEGA TV, or a 24" Toshiba TV/VCR/DVD combo

Easy way for XP users to resize pictures

If you have Windows XP its very easy... all you need to do is follow the instructions below. This is the quickest and easiest way I have seen to resize as there is no need to open a photo editing software. Micro$oft has a special XP addon for resizing pictures... download and install it from here:

Download size: 520 kb and is freeware http://download.microsoft.com/download/whistler/Install/2/WXP/EN-US/ImageResizerPowertoySetup.exe

Using the resizer
1. Find the picture on your hard drive you want to resize.
2. Right click the picture and chose "Resize Pictures" from the context menu
3. A small size selection window will appear - select the size you want or click "Advanced" and then "Custom" for specific sizes like 400 x 300
4. Click OK

You'll find that the a new smaller picture has been created in the same place as the original. Its that simple

Increase Hard disk`s speed

StarterGroup: MemberPosts: 95Joined: 1-January 07From: {FiJi IsLaNdS}Member No.: 94,801
INCREASE HARDDISK SPEEDTo speed up your hard disk speed we need to configure a special buffer in the computer's memory in order to enable it to better deal with interrupts made from the disk. This tip is only recommended if you have 256MB RAM or higher.Follow these steps:

Run SYSEDIT.EXE from the Run command.
Expand the system.ini file window.
Scroll down almost to the end of the file till you find a line called [386enh].
Press Enter to make one blank line, and in that line type
Irq14=4096
Note: This line IS CASE SENSITIVE!!!
Click on the File menu, then choose Save.
Close SYSEDIT and reboot your computer.

Done. Speed improvement will be noticed after the computer reboots.Update: The most speed improvement is visible with IDE drives, however there are reports that this tweak also does good for SCSI disks. In any case, it won't harm your system, so why not try it yourself and let me know what you find.

How to mass rename files

When one downloads an album from a torrents or web site, they usually get songs that look something like this:01_this_song_rocks-example_artist.mp3I assume they rename it in this format to make it a little less search-able by anti-piracy groups.If you want your song to look like this:01 This Song Rocks - Example Artist.mp3 This program (freeware, made by Denis Kozlov) is a great mass renamer which allows you to add "rules" which removes, replaces, makes uppercase, etc. all the files in a folder you choose and then rename them.

1. Add a new rule. 2. Set the rule to Replace. 3. In the Find: field, type in _ 4.In the Replace: field, you should obviously type a space. 5. Click Add Rule. The results will appear on the right side of the bottom right box. 6. If you like the results, click Rename in the upper right corner or the window.

* The "-" symbol should have spacing before and after to show a change in description (Ex. from Title of Song-Author to Title of Song - Author).

1. Add a new rule.2. Set the rule to Replace.3. Inf the Find: field, type in -4. In the Replace: field, type in a - but with a space before and after.5. Click Add Rule. The results will appear on the right side of the bottom right box.6. If you like the results, click Rename in the upper right corner or the window.

* If all song titles and authors are in lowercase, you can make all the first letters of the words uppercase with the Case rule.

1. Add a new rule.2. Set the rule to Case. (I recommend setting the capitolization Capitolize Every Word. Is set by default I believe.)

*Tip*If you really want to get in-depth on what words capitolize you can add fragments: Depending on what you enter in the fragment box, the program will capitolize every word except for the ones you typed into the fragment field. This is helpful for preventing words like "the", "is", "and" etc. from becoming uppercase.

4. If you added fragments, check the Force Case for fragments checkbox.5. Click Add Rule. The results will appear on the right side of the bottom right box.6. If you like the results, click Rename in the upper right corner or the window.

Take a screenshot using Windows Media Player

Whenever you wanna take a screenshot of a good movie or whatever you press "the print screen" button and all you see is a black screen.well, not anymore.All you have to do is open you Windows Media Player (All Versions)click on the right mouse button and goto Tools > Options... > In the tabs goto Performance and down there you'll see "Video acceleration" move the button from full to NONEPress Apply and you'r done!

Finding Phone Videos with Google

You can use the following Google searches to find 3GP files for viewing on some cell phones:

CODE
-inurl:htm -inurl:html -inurl:asp intitle:"index of” 3gp

CODE
filetype:3gp inurl:3gp

CODE
filetype:3gp inurl:3gp yourkeyword
(On my phone I can view WMV, though I didn’t find any good site with small, downloadable and fun videos. Replacing “3gp” with “wmv” above technically works, but most of the videos you’ll find are too large for cell phones.)

find out a person's IP by using MSN messenger

connect to them (file share, send, etc...) then run command (XP) or cmd (2000 and under)type in netstattheir IP is the one listed that isn't yours.

How to download from video sites like youtube easier

http://dlthis.com/ use this link

Some common questions about the Video Grabber:
Q: Why do I get a 403 error and/or a blank page saying "You are not authorized to view this page" when I download some videos from FlickPeek or Peekvid?
A: This is because DailyMotion (where the videos are actually hosted) has taken the videos off of their servers. You need to inform PeekVid or FlickPeek so that they can upload a newer version and update their links.
Q: My favourite site [insertsitehere].com isn't supported. What can I do?
A: You can send the URL of the site and if you want, a specific example link from the site to porkchop009[at]gmail.com.
Q: What do I do with the FLV files after I've downloaded them?
A: You can either view them using a FLV player such as "FLV Player" or "VLC Player", or you can convert the files to another format using "SUPER".
Q: You liar! You said that [sitename] was supported, but I tried a link from [sitename] and it didn't work. What's the deal?
A: Certain sites will change the way they operate, especially if they're a newer site. Just send the link in question to porkchop009[at]gmail.com and I'll try to deal with it.
