Dear Readers,

I am sure things are going great in life, and I also thank for the regular feedback of everyone, which keeps me motivated.
At my end too, life is going great, lots of action is done from my end in these 4 years, but now it is the recruiters who need to act! Lets hope for the best, fingers crossed!

Today, I was actually looking for a way through which I could create a spreadsheet from the emails received, and post the data from spreadsheet to facebook automatically, without uploading the spreadsheet.
The first part is easy as a webmaster, however still researching on how to post updates from spreadsheet to facebook!

This lead to an interesting search result, which is an application which looks like spreadsheet, but it is a functional version of one’s facebook and twitter accounts! The idea behind this application was that people who have long working hours, due to which the social life (which is now mostly on social networks) is dead, can be sociable while in office, irrespective of the facebook being blocked or not.

I like the idea, for the fact that you can enjoy your social life, although with that we need to keep our responsibilities and priorities in mind. And when we are in office, work must be the first priority. So, here is the link of the website, from which you can get that application!

Hardly Work

I hope, the post brings happiness on the faces of many. And you can let me know the same by commenting / giving your feedback in any manner!

Wishing a happy social life,
Amar Jain.

Hello Friends,

Warm welcome again after a long time.

Today’s post may be interesting for all those who listen / see their favorite song or video on websites, and wish that they could keep it in their PCs forever. So that it could be seen anytime without an internet connection!
So friends, say good bye to old downloading fashion and just copy and paste!

There is something called “Cache” or “Internet Temporary Files”, which stores the data of the websites which we visit.

For example if you visit youtube.com to see your favorite video, our computer stores some of the information about this site in the “cache” or “Internet Temporary Files” folder. As the name suggests, once you clean it or once you close your browser, all your stored data of this folder is deleted.

We often hear the term “Cookies”, which is stored in our cache folder by some websites.

Now when you listen any audio or see any video, most of the websites store a file of that audio or video in your browser’s cache. So basically what we are going to do is that we are going to copy that file from our browser’s cache.

For example the sites like
Esnips,
Youtube,
Smashits,
Music India Online,

stores the data in the cache folder.

Before I go on telling the main method, let me make it clear that most of the times this method works perfectly fine but sometimes it is possible that this method doesn’t work. Please also note, that I am not promoting any illegal use of this trick, this is for educational purposes only. And should not be used for illegal activities.
And if you use it for illegal activity, then I shall not be held lible for that.

Now lets get started:

1. Open your favorite site like esnips or youtube etc.
2. Search for your desired video or audio song.
3. Play your video or song completely.
4. Till then, if you use Internet Explorer, then go to:

Tools>Internet Options.

On the general tab, click on delete files… or delete history… button.
Note that the name of exact option depends on your version of the browser.

For the same cleaning, you can use a most popular utility known as “C Cleaner” or “Crap Cleaner”, which can be found
Here

Your temporary internet files folder should be cleaned before your file gets stop playing.

5. Make sure your internet temporary files folder is clean, you have not closed your browser, and your file is completely stopped playing.

Even when your file completely gets stopped playing, wait for 2 3 seconds to get it completely finished loading.

6. And as a final step, go to:

Tools>Internet Options>Temporary files and History Settings, and click on View Internet Temporary Files Folder.

Now look for the file which has some audio or video extention. Like .mp3, .wma, .flv etc.

If you have cleaned your folder just before your file stopped playing, then you will find your file with the extention at the end.

For example, Esnips.com stores the audio files as “file88.mp3”, and it stores video files as “video[1].flv” etc.

Whereas youtube stores as “Video?”.

Smashits stores as “ppl…. .mp3”.

Music India Online stores with the extention “.wma” and “.mp3”.

Once you have reached to your file, simply copy and paste it into desired location.

That’s all, you can enjoy your favorite stuff at anytime!

*Important Points:

1. If you are unable to locate your file, then you can also use the search function of windows.
2. This trick does not work on raga.com, dishant.com etc. As they store all files in real media or “.rm” format, which does not use the cache folder to store data. For that, you may use downloaders untill I get some trick for that.

3. If you are not able to go in tools>Internet Options or you are not able to do a right click on the same window, then open another window of the same browser and follow the options as described above. Do not close the main window where the file is getting played.

This trick looks bit difficult to be followed, but trust me, once you get use to of it, then it will become a handy trick!

Please leave your questions/feedback in comments section.

Enjoy!

Hello Friends,

Hope you all are rocking!

Friends, internet has got huge information which is stored on many websites.
So in such a situation, how one can keep his eye on all websites? To simplify, how one can check updates to his or her favorite website?
Though there are various options to keep updated yourself like RSS, email notifications etc. But still some websites neither offers RSS, and nor does it offer email subscription.
If you feel yourself to be stucked in the same situation, then here are your solutions!

There are various services and extensions which can do this website monitoring job for you. But it is my bad habbit that I don’t like to install anything for any work if it can be done in other ways.
So, I am going to name few services which can be used.

Change Detection.
is one of those services, which sends you an email whenever there is any change on your favorite website.
It checks for your favorite pages usually twice in a day.
Just enter page address, email address, and that’s all.

The another great service which I found is called:
Follow That Page,
which does the same job what change detection does, but it checks 100 pages per day. This is still in testing stage.
If you want more information about both services, I recommend to see “FAQ” of both services.
So, what are you waiting for?
Choose the right service for you and forget about getting updates for your favorite website manually!

Please visit:

Changedetection.com
and
Follow That Page.com

Stay tuned for more cool tips!

Regards,

Amar Jain.

Friends,

Many of us hate the free hosting services since they add their website’s name after our domain. But now, here is a free and best solution for this problem!

Register yourself with http://www.co.cc, and get a new domain.

Now, your website’s name will be “your domain.co.cc”.

When registered your domain, use URL Hiding /Path Forwarding settings to enter the address of your original site or blog. Submit title, address, keywords, discription and choose URL hiding from combo box and save. Wait for 48 hours maximum. Till then, we will get a free email for our domain!

Sign up with google apps by going to
http://www.google.com/a/cpanel/domain

Verify your domain by choosing CNAME method, and click on activate link found below the heading of services/email. Wait for an hour or so for google to activate your service.

For example, you can open my blog by visiting:

http://www.amarjain.co.cc/

And, you can drop me an email@:

amarjain@amarjain.co.cc

Enjoy! Will write after coming back to Mumbai. Till then, take care.

Friends,

First of all let me thank all for their great feedback and suggestions for my blog.

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you want to insert the signs like “Copyright” etc, but either the application does not allow you to do so, or you have to do some graphical work for this? If you think ‘yes’, then this post is worth reading for you!
Today I will tell you some key combinations which will allow you to insert these signs very quickly.

Before inserting these symbols, let us first understand for what purpose we use which sign. If you are authorize to use these symbols, then only use otherwise you may be infringing international as well as your country’s laws!

 

©: What is Covered by Copyright?
As with all fields of intellectual property copyright is concerned with
protecting the work of the human intellect. The domain of copyright is the
protection of literary and artistic works. These include writings, music, and works
of the fine arts, such as paintings and sculptures, and technology-based works
such as computer programs and electronic databases.
Note that copyright protects works, that is the expression of thoughts, and not
ideas.

 

So, if you are sure that you can use this symbol, and have decided to insert this symbol, then:

1. Make sure that num lock is on.
2. Press and hold alt key.
3. Now press 0 1 6 9 and release the alt key. And there you go!
Please note, that we are using num pad’s keys!

 

™: “A trademark is a sign that individualizes the goods of a given enterprise
and distinguishes them from the goods of its competitors”

 

Now let us insert ™:

1. Make sure num lock is on.
2. Press and hold alt key.
3. Now press 0 1 5 3 and release alt key. Bingo!

Again note, we are using num pad’s keys.

 

Finally, let us insert registered symbol:

1. Make sure num lock is on.
2. Press and hold alt key.
3. Now press 0 1 7 4 and release alt key. Take a deep breath, and have a look!

Don’t forget, we are using num pad!

 

These key combinations can really save our precious time and several mouse clicks! If so, then please drop your feedback with your useful suggestions in comments section.

I will post less, but will post selected things.

Take care and stay tuned.

Regards,

Amar Jain.
