The Very First Lighter Phone SB6309

Although I fully admit to chuckling quite a bit after first seeing this cellphone with a built-in cigarette lighter, I can see some practicality with it. After all, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard of my smoking friends losing their lighter. I’ve been asked numerous times if I happen to have a lighter on me, despite that they’re fully aware I don’t smoke. Having a lighter built into your cellphone would come in incredibly handy. After all, your phone is almost always somewhere within reach.....

Free Username & Passwords for Paid Sites

Free Username & Passwords for Paid Sites

Ever been into a situation where you click on a link and it asks you to enter a username and password to read the stuff? Lets say you are trying to watch movies online, you searched for sites and found out a link where you can watch movies online. You clicked on the link and it takes you to the site but asks you to login or register to watch the content. What do you do? If you are desperate enough, you might register to that site. Let me save you from that situation.


BugMeNot.com, a site where people/you can share your usernames and passwords to any sites that require you to register. whether its nytimes.com, youtube.com or infonmedia.com. All you need to do is visit www.bugmenot.com and enter the site that you need login information for. BugMeNot will give you the username and password for that site. Note it down. Go back to the site you were originally trying to access and proceed to login with the username and password you noted in the previous step.

The site also provides disposable email addresses. That means, if you don't want to give your personal email address at places like public listings etc., you can visit email.bugmenot.com and get an email address that you use. I like the idea of sharing username and passwords. If you know or use any username and passwords for sites like movie torrents or music torrents, you can share it @ BugMeNot.

Website Security Check

Posted by Wonderful-Tricks



Check Out If Your Blog is being Hacked and Exploited

Unmask Parasites is one web based security script that can scan a website for hidden content that might be an indicator that the website was hacked or manipulated by someone else.

It works without registration. All the user needs to do is to enter a url in the search form and let the script do the rest. The script will display a ranking like “This page seems to be clean” listing all the external references - scripts and links - that it founds on that page.

Webmasters can follow those references and let the script analyze them as well or perform additional tests on the website. The two additional tests are the following:


* Finding infected web pages using Google. This is done by using the site parameter in combination with popular spam keywords.
* Display Google’s Safe Browsing rating for the website.

These tests can aid the webmaster in spotting hidden malicious links in a timely manner. It is possible to bookmark the test page and open it again which will initiate a new scan of the website.

Check your Blog loading speed with WebWait


Webwait.com is a web based tool which helps you benchmark your website and your web connection.
Webwait works by placing your site inside an IFrame embedded on the Webwait website.
Webwait claims that the web timing is accurate because it pulls down the entire website into your browser, so it takes into account Ajax/Javascript processing and image loading which other tools may ignore.


Webwait.com helps you measure the speed of your websites. Webwait calculates precisely how long the website takes to load and render in your client browser, including any images, stylesheets, and Javascript, with your internet connection.

Webwait respects your cookies and authentication, so you can test websites with login information also. To test secure sites that require login, visit that site first and log in. This will set up your authentication cookies. Then you’ll be able to open it up in Webwait with your login credentials.

You can even use the Webwait to access servers running on your machine or behind the firewall in the your LAN.

With Webwait, the website timing is dependent on your own internet setup and local setup. You can have your friends test your website from other parts of the world using their computer and internet connection and compare.

When testing your website, close all other programs including instant messengers, and just run only one browser window used for the testing. Also make sure that there are no major operating system delays, such as hard drive swapping, which would affect the browser’s performance.

Rename Several Files at Once

Posted by Wonderful-Tricks

Rename Several Files at Once


If you want to give new names to a group of files that share a common theme — such as a collection of digital photos taken during a vacation — you can save yourself time and finger cramps by renaming them all at once (known as a “batch rename”). Follow these steps:

Note:
A batch rename can be done in only one folder at a time. Also, be careful not to accidentally rename any critical system files. Doing so could cause Windows to malfunction.


1. Select the files you want to rename using one of the following methods:

• Simultaneously press the Ctrl key and the A key to select all of the files in a folder.

• Click the first item in a list, and then hold down the Shift key and click the last item in the list. This causes the first and last items and any between them to be highlighted.

• Hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard while clicking each individual item you want to select.

2. Right-click the file you want to go first in the newly renamed series.

3. Select Rename.

4. Type a name for the first file in the series, and then press the Enter key.

5. All of your selected files are given this new name, followed by a number that distinguishes them from one another. For example, if you renamed the first file LoneRanger, then the rest of the files would be named LoneRanger 1, LoneRanger 2, LoneRanger 3, and so on.

6. If you are unhappy with the new names, you can restore the original ones by simultaneously pressing the Ctrl and Z keys on your keyboard. Each time you use this keyboard shortcut, only one file reverts to its original name. That means you must use this shortcut numerous times to restore all of the names.

Organize Your Bookmarks

Posted by Wonderful-Tricks

Organize Your Bookmarks


If you use the Internet on a regular basis, you probably have accumulated a
large collection of miscellaneous bookmarks. To avoid the hassle of scouring
your entire collection to find one specific bookmark — which could make finding a needle in a haystack seem easy — you can separate and organize them with a few simple techniques:

1. Double-click the My Computer icon on your desktop.

2. A window opens. Double-click the icon for your C: drive


3. Double-click the Documents and Settings folder.

4. Double-click the folder containing the name of your Windows account. For example, if your account is named Bob, then double-click the Bob folder.

6. Some bookmarks have long names that are difficult to read. To give a
bookmark a shorter name, right-click it, select Rename, and then type a new name.

7. To make it easier to find a particular bookmark while surfing the Internet, you can organize your bookmarks into separate folders with easily identifiable names as follows:
a. Click the File drop-down menu located in the upper-left corner
of the Favorites folder.
b. Select New.
c. Select Folder.
d. A New Folder appears. Type a name for it that indicates what kind of bookmarks it will contain. For example, you could call the folder Shopping and use it to store all of the bookmarks to your favorite Internet stores.
e. Repeat this process until you have created enough unique folders to store your different types of bookmarks.
f. If you change your mind and want to give a folder a different name, right-click it, select Rename, and then type a new name.

8. Now you can begin to move your bookmarks into the folders you created:
a. To move a single bookmark, click it, and then drag-and-drop it onto a folder.
b. To move several bookmarks at once, hold down the Ctrl key while clicking the names of each bookmark. Once all relevant bookmarks are highlighted, drag-and-drop them onto a folder.

Hide the List of Recent Documents

Posted by Wonderful-Tricks

Hide the List of Recent Documents


Each time you open a document or file, Windows creates a shortcut to it that is placed in a list called Recent Documents. The purpose of this list is to give you a simple way to access your recently viewed documents without having to waste time searching for them.

To enhance your privacy and security, you can hide the Recent Documents list.


Follow these steps:
1. Click the Start button in the lower-left corner of Windows.

2. Click the Control Panel. (If you don’t see this option, your Start menu is in classic mode. In that case, click Settings, and then select the Control Panel.)

Avoid Certain Passwords

Posted by Wonderful-Tricks

Avoid Certain Passwords


Because many people have a difficult time remembering their passwords, they often use names or words that are near and dear to them — like a pet’s name.

Although such passwords are easy to remember, they also are easy for a criminal to crack. Never use passwords containing the following:

• Nicknames for you or your family members

• A pet’s name


• Your mother’s maiden name

• The street number or street name of your current or former residences

• Your relatives’ names

• Sequential numbers (like 1234 or 6789)

• Common words (like the word password or the)

• Words directly related to your occupation (for example, if you are a doctor, don’t use doctor)

Create Strong Passwords

Posted by Wonderful-Tricks

Create Strong Passwords


To keep Internet intruders from breaking into your computer, you must create strong passwords that are nearly impossible to crack.

Here are some guidelines:
• If you have a simple one-word password like computer, a high-tech thief could crack it in mere minutes.

• If you make the password more robust by adding numbers — like computer33 — it might take the thief an extra 10 minutes to crack it.


• If your password is even more complex — like comPut3r55@$ — the thief would have to work around the clock for days on end before he could come close to cracking it.

• Your password should have a minimum of six digits, with at least three of the following: lowercase letters, uppercase letters, numbers, and special characters.

• The easiest way to create a strong password is to develop a pass-phrase, which is a sentence you can easily remember. Use the first letter of each word in the pass-phrase to create a password. For example, the pass-phrase “Honk if you like computer geeks” becomes the password hiylcg. To make it even stronger, use a combination of upper and lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters that look like actual letters. For example, hiylcg can be changed into h1yLc&.

• For even stronger protection, change your passwords every six months.

Use a Firewall

Posted by Wonderful-Tricks

Use a Firewall


To protect your computer from Internet intruders, it is crucial to use a firewall. Available in hardware and software versions, a firewall acts like a cloaking device to hide your computer from the watchful eyes of online criminals. A firewall also can filter the data that enters your computer, control Internet cookies, and warn you when sinister spyware programs try to transmit data about you over the Web. There are numerous, respected brands of hardware and software firewalls to choose from, each of which will probably suit your needs.

Note
For enhanced protection, use a hardware firewall in combination with a software firewall. If you have two or more computers networked together, using dual firewalls should stop one of the computers from spreading a worm across the network and infecting the other computers. Even if you only have one computer, using both types of firewalls together doesn’t harm anything and gives you increased protection and control of the type of information your computer broadcasts over the Web.


Hardware Firewalls
These are available as stand-alone devices that sit between your computer and the Internet, and they come as a built-in feature of most routers (which are devices used to network computers together to share files and an Internet connection).

Even if you have only one computer in your home or office, a router is a good, inexpensive investment, because you never know when you may purchase an additional computer and want to set up a network. Here are some popular brands of routers (in no particular order):
• Linksys BEFSR41 or BEFSX41
• NetGear RP614
• D-Link DI-604

Software Firewalls
In addition to offering many of the same features as a hardware firewall, a software firewall can alert you when a digital threat like spyware tries to connect to the Internet and transmit your data to online marketers. Also, most software firewalls let you choose which programs can or cannot access the Web. Many reputable software manufacturers have software firewalls available.

Free Firewalls
The following firewall packages are available for free:
• Windows Firewall: A reliable, free firewall known as Windows Firewall is included with Windows XP Service Pack 2. If your computer does not have any other software firewall installed, then Windows Firewall automatically and silently runs in the background to protect you. Although the Windows Firewall will sufficiently protect you from inbound threats that attempt to penetrate your computer, it will not alert you about any outbound threats that try to use your Internet connection. For that reason, it is not recommended.

• ZoneAlarm Free Version: This is one of the best software firewalls — and it won’t cost you a cent. Not only does it protect against inbound and outbound threats, but it also gives you total command over the programs that are allowed to access the Internet. To download it, visit http://www.zonelabs.com or search for it at http://www.download.com

Delete Index Files

Delete Index Files


Even if you cover your Internet tracks by deleting tracking cookies, some information related to them can be left behind in special indexes that have the file extension .dat. To scrub these index files clean, do the following:

1. Delete all of the cookies on your computer

2. Shut down your computer and restart it. After doing so, immediately press the F8 key on your keyboard several times until the Windows Advanced Options Menu screen appears.

If you see the Welcome Screen, click the icon for the account labeled Administrator or an account that has administrative privileges, and then enter your password (if you have one).

6. A command prompt appears. Type CD\ and then press the Enter key.

7. Type del index.dat/s and then press the Enter key.

8. Windows will delete all of your .dat files, which could take a minute or two.

Delete Tracking Cookies

Posted by Wonderful-Tricks

Delete Tracking Cookies


To protect your privacy, you should delete the tracking cookies lurking on your computer. Because it can be difficult to identify which cookies are tracking and which are trustworthy, the easiest thing to do is simply to wipe the plate clean by erasing all of your cookies at once. Follow these steps:

1. Open Internet Explorer.

2. Click the Tools drop-down menu.

3. Select Internet Options.


4. A window opens. Under the General tab, look for Temporary Internet Files. Underneath this, click the Delete Cookies button.

5. A message pops up and asks, “Delete all cookies in the Temporary Internet Files folder?”

6. Click the OK button.

7. If other users have a Windows account on your computer, have each of them log on to their account and repeat these steps.

Control Cookies

Posted by Wonderful-Tricks

Control Cookies


Computer cookies are small text files that store information about the websites you have visited and the things you did on those sites. Cookies come in two flavors:

trustworthy — which assist and support your Internet usage
and tracking — which are used by Internet marketers to show you customized advertisements.

To control the cookies that are placed on your computer, do the following:


1. Open Internet Explorer.

2. Click the Tools drop-down menu.

3. Select Internet Options.

4. A window opens. Click the Privacy tab.

5. Click the Advanced button.

6. Put a checkmark in the Override Automatic Cookie Handling box.

7. Under the First-party Cookies heading, click the Block button.

8. Put a checkmark in the Always Allow Session Cookies box. This allows websites to place a cookie on your computer that expires the moment you exit the site (which means the cookie cannot be used to track you).

9. Under the Third-party Cookies heading, click the Block button

10. Click the OK button.

11. Now you should be back at the Privacy screen. Click the Sites button.

12. A window opens. In the Address of Web Site box, type the address of trustworthy websites that need cookies to function properly (Web e-mail services such as Hotmail, financial institutions such as your bank or credit-card company, e-merchants such as Amazon.com and eBay, and so on), and then click the Allow button.

13. Type the address of any websites you do not want to receive cookies from (online advertisers like doubleclick.net, gambling sites, and so on), and then click the Block button.

14. If you change your mind about a website and want to remove it from this list, simply highlight its name, click the Remove button, and then click OK.

15. When you are finished adding or removing websites to the list, click the OK button.

Beware of Phishing Scams

Posted by Wonderful-Tricks

Beware of Phishing Scams


Phishing (pronounced “fishing”) is a scam that tricks people into revealing their private, personal information (like credit-card numbers and passwords).
Originally, phishing was an e-mail scam in which criminals sent a fake “urgent” message that appeared to be from a respected company or financial institution.

The message asked its recipients to verify or update their account information by clicking a link in the e-mail and visiting a special website. When the victims followed the instructions, the information they entered on the fake website was captured by the criminals and used to commit identity theft. In recent years, this crime has produced several sinister spin-offs. Now, phishing is used more as a term to refer to data-mining scams in general.


Here are some tips to avoid phishing:

• Don’t respond to e-mail asking for private information: Instead, be proactive and call the bank or company and ask them whether they are trying to get in touch with you. Most financial institutions have toll-free phone numbers you can call (usually the numbers are listed on the back of your credit cards).

• Don’t click on links in strange or unexpected e-mail: This is
especially true of those that appear to be from financial institutions.

• Read your e-mail offline (disconnected from the Internet): This will prevent hostile code from being downloaded to your computer if you accidentally click a phishing link in an e-mail. For dial-up users, this is easy: simply log-off your Internet service. For users of always-on, high-speed cable/DSL connections, you will need to turn on the “lock” feature of your software firewall to halt all inbound and outbound Internet activity.

• Don’t click links inside Instant Messages: This is true regardless of whether or not the link was sent to you from someone on your “buddy” list of contacts.

• Never send your personal or financial information in an e-mail or instant message: Like credit-card numbers, social-security numbers, bank-account numbers, passwords, user names, and so on. A normal e-mail or instant message does not have encryption protection, which means it could be intercepted by a criminal who could use your private information to commit identity theft. If you need to give important information to someone, call him or her on the telephone — but only use a landline, because cell-phone calls can also be intercepted.

• Beware of telephone phishing: Do not respond to voicemails from companies asking you to call a special phone number to clear up information about your account. This could be phone phishing. Instead, call their central phone number and find out whether or not they really need to speak with you. Also, be suspicious of companies who call you out of the blue and ask you to verify information like your account number, password, PIN number, mother’s maiden name, social-security number, age, home address, and so on. Don’t tell them anything. Instead, hang up and call their central phone number.

Prevent Spyware Infections

Posted by Wonderful-Tricks

Prevent Spyware Infections


Spyware is a general term describing sinister programs that sneak into your computer by tricking you into installing them or by hiding in other programs you install. The dangers of spyware are that it can do the following:

• Install a “keystroke logging” program that allows a criminal to see everything you type on your keyboard (including passwords and credit-card numbers)

• Hijack your Internet browser and change its default homepage and/or search engine; track your Internet-surfing habits

• Send your private information to hackers who can use it to commit identity theft, or to online marketers who will send you customized pop-up advertisements


How Does Spyware Infect a Computer?
There are numerous ways that spyware can sneak into your computer, including the following:

• Internet advertisements: When you click on a malicious pop-up ad, spyware can be downloaded to your computer.

• File-sharing software: It hides inside programs used for illegally sharing MP3 music files or pirated movies.When you install the software, the spyware is installed at the same time.

Recover from E-Mail Corruption

Recover from E-Mail Corruption

If Outlook Express alerts you that an error has occurred in directdb.dll or
msoe.dll, then most likely some or all of your e-mail folders are corrupt.

Often this type of corruption is so severe that it prevents Outlook Express from opening. To salvage your e-mail and restore Outlook Express, try the following:

1. Click the Start button in the lower-left corner of Windows.

2. Click Run.

3. A window opens. Type C:\Documents and Settings\Your Account Name\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities


Note
You must replace the words Your Account Name with the name of your Windows XP account. For example, if your account is named Bob, then you should type C:\Documents and Settings\Bob\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities.

Also, if your computer does not have Windows XP installed on the C: drive, then you must insert the appropriate drive letter followed by a colon.

4. Click the OK button or press the Enter key.

5. A window opens. Inside, double-click the folder with the strange, long name that looks something like this: {DA1BA02A-D3AE-4E46-A32C-EF70486F8D28}.

6. Double-click the Microsoft folder.

7. Double-click the Outlook Express folder. Inside are all of the special dbx files that store your e-mail. Click the Edit drop-down menu located at the top of this folder.

8. Click Select All. This highlights all of the dbx files.

9. Again, click the Edit drop-down menu.

10. Click Cut.

11. Go to a folder like My Documents, and then create a new folder.
a. Click the File drop-down menu.
b. Select New.
c. Click Folder.
d. A new folder appears. Rename it something like Outlook Express DBX Files.
e. Double-click the new folder to open it.
f. Inside the folder, right-click the empty space and select Paste.
All of your dbx files are transferred from their old location to this new one.

12. Try to open Outlook Express. If you are successful, then click the File drop-down menu.

13. Select Import.

14. Click Messages.

15. The Outlook Express Import window opens. Scroll down and click Microsoft Outlook Express 6.

16. Click the Next button.

17. A new window opens. Toward the bottom of it, click the Import Mail
from an OE6 Store Directory button.

18. Click the OK button.

19. Click the Browse button, and then locate the folder where you just placed your dbx files.

20. Click the OK button, and then click the Next button.

21. In the next window, choose whether to import all e-mail folders or just certain ones. Then, click the Next button.

22. Your messages are imported into Outlook Express. When the process
is complete, click the Finish button.

23. If this process doesn’t work — or if some of your e-mail is missing —
then you will need to use a special tool named DBXtract to remove each of your e-mail messages from the dbx files. Connect to the Internet and visit http://www.oehelp.com/DBXtract to download the program. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Prevent E-Mail Corruption

If you send and receive large quantities of e-mail on a regular basis, there are several guidelines you should follow to keep Outlook Express 6 running smoothly and to protect your e-mail folders from becoming corrupt (which could prevent you from accessing them):

• Do not store all of your e-mail in your Inbox. Instead, create new folders, and then move your messages into them.
1. Open Outlook Express.

2. Right-click the Inbox folder.

3. Select New Folder.


4. A window opens. In the empty box, type a name for your new folder.

5. Click the OK button.Your new folder is created as a subfolder below your Inbox.

6. Return to your Inbox, and then drag e-mail messages from it and drop them into your new folder.

• Keep each e-mail folder small. If a folder is stuffed with too many messages, it could become corrupt.

• Do not allow your Sent folder to grow too large. Make a habit of emptying its contents every few weeks.

• Compact your folders at least once a month.

• Install Service Pack 2 for Windows XP, which will improve the way Outlook Express manages and maintains your e-mail.

• Back up your e-mail on a regular basis — particularly if you rely on it for your job.
