If you’re itching to download a torrent at school or work, where you are not authorized to install any software, you can use this web-based java bit torrent client. This is so cool if you just want to download only one torrent at a time. All you need is Java Virtual Machine.
Here is the snapshot of Bitlet download in progress.
Quote from torrentfreak : It’s not a replacement for the regular BitTorrent client, but it sure is a great addition.

I’ve found the program called “Speedbit Video Accelator“. It supports the following video networks:
How it’s works?
With SpeedBit Video Accelerator installed, your browser’s connection to specific streaming video server is being rerouted through the Video Accelerator Daemon. Unlike the normal browser connection, the Daemon uses a unique patent pending technology, that substitutes the single connection with a sophisticated multi-connection algorithm. The end result is an (up to) 5 times faster connection, which handles the cache buffering (the “preloading” of the movie) much more efficiently.
BtN’s Tips : Even though they don’t disclose their technology, I’ve observed that this program makes several connection to the video that you’re playing. For my case, without this program, I can see only three connections to dailymotion, but after using this program, it makes 8 connections. By this way, it accelerates the video. So, if your connection is dialup, using this program won’t make any difference.
If you have Microsoft Zune player and ever wanted to play your purchased music on any other players, here is the solution.
FairUse4WM – a WM/DRM removal program

… a new tool for uncovering the individual keys from Microsoft’s DRM blackbox components (“IBX”), up to version 11.0.6000.6324. Lacking the source code to the extant programs
….This version should be capable of interfacing with both Windows Vista and Zune software versions.
Have fun and Enjoy your music!
Newer isn’t always better. If you prefer some functions of your old version software and found that official web sites only had the latest version of the software up for download, don’t sigh yet.
There is OldVersion.com and OldApps.com for you. Both these sites have a huge collection of previous releases of most famous applications.
Warnings: If you use older versions, you may expose yourself to security risks that’ve already been fixed in newer versions.
After you have upgraded to Outlook 2007 from the earlier outlook versions, you will get suprise to see that all categories from contacts, have been converted to color categories globally.
So you will see in calendar, tasks, and you’ve been so annoyed that, you want to reset to default color categories? You can’t find any options in Outlook 2007 to reset to default categories. If you delete one by one, it could take a long long time.
So, the easiest way is :
Start menu–>> RUN—>> and enter “c:\program files\microsoft office\office12\outlook.exe” /cleancategories”
Enjoy your journey with new stylish Outlook 2007!

I just found out this very cool firefox plugin, that I can’t surf without it anymore. After using that adblockplus plugin, your Yahoo mail will look like Yahoo mail plus, without annoying graphical ads anymore. Your favourite blog will be really ads-free.
The hot debates are “Is this ethical?”, “Are we killing the goose?”, blah, blah, blah
But the answer is that actually, Adblock Plus gives the user control. If you want to view google ads, don’t filter them.
If you got annoy with chitika ads on my blog, just install that plugin and boom, you can browse Bridge to Nova for ads-free. Trust me, I don’t mind. Why?
Guess what, if you got really annonyed by ads on the internet and you love to use this software, maybe you aren’t the guy ads company are targeting. It is as simple as that.

4. Each key listed under Uninstall in the left pane of Registry Editor represents a program that is displayed in the Currently installed programs list of the Add or Remove Programs tool. To determine which program that each key represents, click the key, and then view the following values in the details pane on the right:
DisplayName: The value data for the DisplayName key is the name that is listed in Add or Remove Programs.
UninstallString: The value data for the UninstallString key is the program that is used to uninstall the program.
5. After you identify the registry key that represents the program that you removed but which is still displayed in the Currently installed programs list of Add or Remove Programs, right-click the key in the left pane of the Registry Editor window, and then click Delete.
Click Yes in response to the “Are you sure you want to delete this key and all of its subkeys?” message.
6. On the File menu, click Exit to quit Registry Editor.
7. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Add or Remove Programs.
In the Currently installed programs list, verify that the program whose registry key you deleted is no longer listed.
There you go, don’t forget to backup registry first, if you’re afraid of touching it.
