Just bcos the plan they offer is unlimited, they think that they can block access to torrent sites which might limit our usage. Ifthey thought that they would be able to do that then they are so wrong….there are many ways to bypass that like using Proxy sites, proxy addresses, VPNNetworks but i will share with you one way which is the easiest and which helped me.

Ever had to wait for a download to finish in utorrent and did not know what to do to while away the time ?? How about playing a game of Tetris?

Its a very easy trick : Launch uTorrent and click on the Help menu, then click on the About uTorrent option

This will bring up the about box, press the “T” key to launch a round of Tetris.

The game will get started right away, you can use the left and right arrow keys to move, the up arrow will rotate the shape and the down arrow will increase the descending speed of the current shape.

Clearing up Space in Windows

February 13, 2012 5 comments

Disclaimer: I’m in no way responsible for what you do to your system, this is ONLY for advanced users who know a little about windows and computers and can reinstall/repair a windows installation if necessary. This has worked for me wonderfully and hopefully will for you to!

 NOTE: When I tell you, it’s safe to delete the folder, it means the contents of the folder, DO NOT GO ABOUT DELETING ENTIRE FOLDERS

It all began one day when I was helping a client optimize his system(Yes,….one of the things I do….) and I noticed that his C: Drive was nearly full. The size of the C Drive was 40 GB and nearly 1.3 remained. My client was “Technologically Challenged” (:)), so I doubt that he might have done some installation which might have eaten so much of his space. So I helped him recover space using the methods I document below so that they are useful to you too.

I analyzed the Client machine using a tool called “windirstat”. It showed me a graphical Structure of the files which were very large in size. I am showing you the list of files/folders which occupied a large space on that PC or contained unwanted files and whether you should attempt to remove them or not and if possible why.

A ‘No to all’ button in Windows

It all began the day when i was trying to copy a very huge folder with over 1000’s of files and trying to copy it into an already existing folder with a different structure or so i thought. It all began nice and easy but then it hit a reef. It encountered a folder with the same name, containing files with same name but the contents of those files were entirely different and showed me a dialog asking me whether i want to overwrite the files or let it be. It provided me with the options of ‘Yes’, ‘Yes to All’, ‘No’ or ‘Cancel’
