I personally adore Diablo I and Diablo II. Since first version of this game is already fifteen years old (published in 1996) it requires special steps to play it on Windows 7. The most popular solution is to use IPXWrapper. However, in my case it required some additional works.
The Synchronize directories tool in Total Commander is magnificent and I’m using it very often for all my backup-like and sync-like works. The only thing, that I was missing is an ability to ignore hidden system files or files stored in
.git folders, i.e. hidden version control files. So, I wrote to Total Commander’s author and received immediate response, that this is possible.
Even prettiest wallpapers looks pretty ugly when stretched by Android to fit different device screen size. Either used algorithm is poor or I have too high expectations, but most of my Windows wallpapers look like a real crap, when copied to Android and used there as that system wallpaper. Some idea is to prepare own set of wallpapers, especially fit to your device screen size. For this purpose it is good to know, how to calculate it.
Well.. at least on my QNAP TS-210 it is in:
You can validate this by executing:
Which should show version PHP installed on your QNAP box.
…are possible! All you need to do is to use
mklink /d "D:\Photos" "\\SERVER\Photos\Family\Dad"
After installing Service Pack 1 over your Windows 7 (or some other update “around”) you may find, that some of your folders has now a strange name. This happen mostly in non-English versions of Windows 7.
To fix this problem, turn displaying of hidden files on, locate
desktop.ini file, edit it and remove
LocalizedResourceName key from it or delete entire
desktop.ini file at all.
Here is just a bunch of Yii forum topics, that talks various approaches to make Yii application serve Rapidshare-like routes, i.e. URLs without action (with just the controller) or without both controller and action:
That’s just a memo for me and a start point for future reading, nothing else.
It is a simple example how to call AJAX request right as page loads, not requiring user to do any action. This examples correctly handles both expected result and AJAX error and puts it into selected element.
Yii is automatically publishing core scripts (i.e. jQuery and some others) with each generated page. You may include following piece of code in your application configuration to disable this behavior:
Refer to Yii API manual,
CClientScript::scriptMap section, for more details.
If you want to display HTTP 403 error (instead of files list) for folder, where there is no
index.php file, then in
.htaccess file you must add following line:
This works for current folder and all subfolder (unless
.htaccess file if any of these subfolders will “locally” change this setting).
If found an interesting tip on how to get listing of your folder as text, that you can copy to any document or email, without need to manually write all folder and file names. It requires console window and… Word.
If you don’t know, what WolframAlpha is then consider a Star Trek computer answering your even wildest mathematical and statistical questions. Want to know the population of Far East countries in mid-fifties of XX century? Or statistically how many cities were involved in biggest earthquakes in history?
This and many other questions may be easily solved with WolframAlpha. If you’re still not convinced, then why don’t you take a look at live demo of WA for iPad. Let it convince you!
To manually start MySQL server one should call from the console:
cd d:\Internet\XAMPP Lite\mysql\bin
mysql.exe –user=me –password=thepass123 –database=test
This is just a memo-reminder for me, as this is an obvious knowledge to most of you.
The magic word is
Create a new folder in any folder you like (make it root folder on your first drive or deeply hidden secret dir) and use exactly above string as folder’s name. Folder’s icon will change to confirm that you’ve succeeded.
Double clicking this folder — instead of showing contents of empty directory — will give you an access to a really impressive list of shortcuts to most powerful and hidden features of Windows 7.
Happy hacking, folks!

When installing Windows XP Professional on FujitsuSiemens AmiloPro V2060 laptop in most cases it will turn out, that the hard disk is not found.

A lot of people uses the same notebook to access Internet from many places or networks. For example from home and office. If all these networks are using DHCP-assigned IP addresses and network parameters or if you’re using different medium (i.e. One at home, wireless at work) then there is no problem. However, if both networks uses static parameters over the same medium, then the only option you’re left is manually changing network parameters, as Windows does not allow you to create more than one connection for single hardware (network medium). Hopefully, you can easy your life with a set of simple batch scripts.
WordPress by definition performs automatic saves of each post being currently edited and also, for each post update, it creates a revision. This enlarges database and sometimes can make life a little bit harder, because both WordPress and browser can get a little bit wako on any of these mechanisms. So, here is a quick way of disabling these features.
This post is based on Revision Management in Wrodpress Codex. Refer to it for details.
To redirect user to another page directly in browser (without using server-side and HTTP error codes) one just have to add this to
<head> section of HTML document:
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="x; url=http://.../strona.html"/>
This is just to remind me, what to use in this case. Nothing more.
