How To Get A FREE iPod!

How To Get A FREE iPod!
http://linuxbroadcast.blogspot.com/

First Off - Need To Know Facts
First off, I have to say that NO! This is not a scam of any type. The company offering this deal (Gratis Internet) is registered with the BBB (Better Business Bureau) and has been for quite some time. Gratis is also affiliated with big-name companies such as AOL, General Motors, Ebay, Columbia House, and many others. These companies would never affiate them selves with a fraudulent web site/company. Aside from all this, there is proof that this works. Many people have received their ipods already and many more will. I wrote this document to help spread the word to you and ofcouse to help my self get an iPod.



How it works..
The way FreeiPods work is actually very simple. You sign up at their site, then you get others to signup and complete a offer (usually free). An offer can be anything from buying something on a web site to signing up for a free trial for a ISP. When this happens FreeiPods makes money from the offer you sign up from (even if you didn't spend a dime). With this money they make, they are able to offer FREE iPods, Simple huh?

To get a free ipod, you must sign up at their site, then complete 1 (One) offer. After that, you have to get 5 (Five) people do the same thing, and since it usually doesn't cost anything to complete an offer, a friend should be more then willing to help you out. After you have completed 1 (One) offer and gotten 5 (Five) people to signup and complete a offer, you will be sent the ipod of you choice.



The steps to follow..

Step #1 (Signup)
The first step is to go to the web site and signup. You will be asked witch ipod you would like and for an e-mail address and to create a password on the first screen. Then you will be asked for your shipping info so they know where to send the ipod. The address to go to to signup is: How To Get A FREE iPod!

CODE
http://www.freeiPods.com/default.aspx?referer=7498598



Step #2 (Referrals)
The second step is a little more tricky. This is the part where you have to get people to signup for ipods using you referral link. There are many ways to do this, ask some friends to do it, send out e-mails, post on forums, get on some conga lines, write a how-to like i did, I'm sure you will think of away to do it.


Step #3 (Offers)
An offer is when you signup for one of freeipod's affiliates, there are quite a few to choose from. This part is what stops most people from completing their freeipod offer. The reason being is that it sounds to good to be true, for example, you can signup for a completely free trial of AOL and get an ipod in return.. At first i didn't think this was legit, but after talking to a few people who have done it and had proof that it actually worked for them, i decided to give it a try and it worked.
I used the AOL offer, you actually don't need a credit card (however i did use one). If you signup and hit cancel when it asks for your credit card info, it should still work and give you credit, many people i know have tried this and it has worked. If you DO you a credit card, all you have to do is call AOL and cancel the trial after your offer has been approved by freeipods. This usually takes a day or so.


Step #4 (Wait)
Wait for freeipods to e-mail you, they will give you instructions on what to do from there.. It will just have you follow a link and then fill out your shipping info and then it will ship.

How To Add A URL Address Bar To The Taskbar

How To Add A URL Address Bar To The Taskbar
http://linuxbroadcast.blogspot.com/

You can add an Internet URL address bar to your Windows XP taskbar. Doing so will let you type in URLs and launch Web pages without first launching a browser. It will also let you launch some native Windows XP applications in much the same way as you would via the Run menu (so you could type in calc to launch the calculator or mspaint to launch Microsoft Paint. Here's how you add the address bar:


1. Right-click on the taskbar, select Toolbars, and then click Address.

2. The word Address will appear on your taskbar.

3. Double click it to access it.

4. If that doesn't work, your taskbar is locked. You can unlock it by right-clicking on the taskbar again and uncheck Lock the Taskbar.

NOTE: You may also need to grab the vertical dotted lines beside the word Address and drag it to the left to make the Address window appear.

How To Overburn A CD With Nero?

How To Overburn A CD With Nero?
http://linuxbroadcast.blogspot.com/

Start Nero
From the action-bar select File and select Preferences.
In the Preferences window, select Expert Features(1) and check the Enable overburn disc-at-once(2).

Choose a Maximum CD Length(3) and click OK(4) (*82:59:59 is the maximum value I suggest, but as you can see from the screen capture above I have set mine significantly higher. The reason is because I frequently use 99min 850 MB CD media).

For a more accurate test you can use a nero tool called nero speed test to see how much a specific CD is capable of being overburned . get it here


From the action-bar select File and select Write CD.

A window will appear when you have exceeded expected length, click OK to start the overburn copy.

Remember to set disk to burn Disc at Once, you cannot overburn in Track at Once Mode.

How do I Test My Virus Scan Installation? (Eicar)


Description

After installing VirusScan, you may logically wonder, how do I know if it's working? The answer is a test virus. The EICAR Standard AntiVirus Test File is a combined effort by anti-virus vendors throughout the world to implement one standard by which customers can verify their anti-virus installations.

Solution

To test your installation, copy the following line into its own file, then save the file with the name EICAR.COM. More detailed instructions are found below.

X5O!P%@AP[4\PZX54(P^)7CC)7}$EICAR-STANDARD-ANTIVIRUS-TEST-FILE!$H+H*

The file size will be 68 or 70 bytes.

If VirusScan is running and configured correctly, when you try to save the file, VirusScan will detect the virus. If VirusScan is not running, start it and scan the directory that contains EICAR.COM. When your software scans this file, it will report finding the EICAR test file.

Note that this file is NOT A VIRUS. Delete the file when you have finished testing your installation to avoid alarming unsuspecting
users.

The eicar test virus is available for download from the following website:
http://www.eicar.org/download/eicar.com

Creating Eicar.com

1. Click on Start.
2. Select Run.
3. In the Open box type: notepad
4. Maximize the window.
5. Highlight the following on the following line of text:
X5O!P%@AP[4\PZX54(P^)7CC)7}$EICAR-STANDARD-ANTIVIRUS-TEST-FILE!$H+H*
6. Right click on the highlighted text and choose 'copy'.
7. Switch back to Notepad.
8. Right click anywhere inside of Notepad and select 'paste'.
9. Click the File menu and select 'save as'.
10. Change the 'Save as Type' to 'all files'.
11. Name the file eicar.com.

How To Have Notepad In "Right Click" "Send To"


Many apply a registry tweak to have notepad as an option for unknown file types. We frequently see such files which are actually just text, but named with some odd file-extension. And then, some suspicious files which we want to make sure what the contents are. Well, in such cases where the registry tweak is applied, the downside happens to be that even some known files get associated with notepad - but no, all we want is to be able to open a file with notepad - the association part in such cases is unwanted interference. Also, notepad becomes a permanent fixture on the right-click menu - which is again an annoyance.

So what we do, is to have notepad as an option in the Send-To options, of the right-click menu in explorer. It fulfills the purpose to perfection (at least, in my case). Here's what we do:

1. right-click desktop, choose "New >> Shortcut" |Click Here|
2. Type the location of the item - "notepad" - (that's all, no need to give path)
3. Next >> type name for shortcut - "Edit with Notepad"
4. Click finish
5. Now right-click this shortcut on the desktop, and choose properties.
6. Confirm that the "target" and "start in" fields are using variables - "%windir%\system32\notepad.exe" - (absolute paths will be problematic if you use this .LNK on machines other than your own)
7. Now, browse to "%UserProfile%\SendTo" in explorer (which means "C:\Documents and Settings\User_Name\SendTo\" folder)
8. And copy the "Edit with Notepad.lnk" file which you already created, to that folder.
9. So now, you can right-click on ANY file-type, and be offered an option to open with notepad, from the SendTo sub-menu.

So now, you just right-click on an .nfo or .eml or .diz file (which are associated with other programs, and are sometimes just plain-text files), and choose "Send To >> Edit with Notepad" and it will open in notepad!
No more botheration of applying registry tweaks for something as simple as this.

How To Maximize Dial-up Modem Settings

How To Maximize Dial-up Modem Settings
http://linuxbroadcast.blogspot.com/

Did you know that by changing a few settings you can make your dial-up modem run better? That's right—you might have a fast modem and a good connection, but you're not getting the best performance. With a few adjustments, you can get faster connection speeds.

NOTE: Since every PC configuration is different, these adjustments might not work for everyone.

With Windows 95, 98 & ME you'll need to open your Control Panel ( Start / Control Panel ). Click "System" then choose "Device Manager". Open up "Ports", highlight your modem port (should be COM2), and choose "Properties" near the bottom. When you click "Port Settings", you will see the modem speed listed under "Bits per second".

With Win XP , just hold down the Alt key and double-click "My Computer" to bring up System Properties. Click the "Hardware" tab, then choose the "Device Manager" button. Scroll down to "Modems" and click the little (—) to show your modem, then double click it.

Selecting the "Modem" tab will allow you to adjust the port speed.


Usually, the Maximum Port Speed is on the highest setting (115,000 bps), but sometimes you will find it on a slower default of 9600 bps. If you have a 56k modem, you can crank it up to the maximum setting without any trouble (in most cases). If you live in a cave and have a 28k modem, then the fastest you can do is 57,600 bps.

Win 9x users should also adjust the "Flow Control" near the bottom. The default for this is usually Xon/Xoff which is the software control—change this to "Hardware" if you want to get the most from your modem. Next, click the "Advanced" button to adjust the Receiver Buffer to its highest setting (all the way to the right). If you run into any problems, just turn this one back to the 2/3 setting.

To check/adjust the Receive-Transmit buffers in XP, click the "Advanced" tab of your modem properties then choose the "Advanced Port Settings" button. Make sure that both are set to their highest settings.

There are many more tweaks that can be done in the registry, but the potential for disaster is too high for the average user. Some folks install dial-up accelerators, which basically tweak these registry settings for you and perform other routines to optimize performance.

Just by changing these few settings, though, you should see better performance.

Alarm Clock Menu

Go to MissedCall Empty the list Press the -> key for a second or two The option Menu size turns up Choose 'yes' and go from there.

An alarm clock turned up too but it never rang. I think this was because there is no clock in the phone.

Free phone calls using the GA628

This trick has only been reported working on PREPAID GSM CARDS and in some countries and with some sw versions.
The prepaid GSM SIM CARD is a kind of "SIM card" which only has a sertant amount of credit on it (like a normal phonebox telecard)... if it can be traced? - we don't know...

Well..here's the trick you dial the no. normally and press YES. While "connecting" is shown on the screen, the following procedure should be carried out: Press CLR then 0 then # and then NO (twice) so as to switch OFF the phone. You can then still speak on the phone while it is switched off but the SIM card does not record your calls which will lead to FREE phone calls in some countries.. we hope!!

Another variant of the code

Make a Call, while the phone says Connecting type 083# (the position 83 must be empty! ), when phone says Pos Emtpy, press the NO key and turn off the phone.

If you can make the call with the phone turned off you will face a problem when you need to hang up the phone...the only way for you to do that is remove the battery...???

I have a Motorola V220 and want to have my own ringtones without down load from internet and PAID angry2.gif . After searching all night for "how to" ...this is what I got - after testing with my mobile...and it works very well. I want to share with you ...

A - Tools

6. Click "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)", then click next.
7. On the next window, only choose "Include this location in the search", then click "Browse"
8. In the "Browse for folder" window, click on the folder you unzip "p2k_driver", then click "OK", then "Next"
9. Windows will search for the driver in that folder, and it is there ....BUT.....

10. A window pops up:

"The software you are installing for this hardware:
