Globelines' Globe Broadband and Torrent Settings

Image
I posted my experience about Globe (Innove) Broadband yesterday and I know some people are also experiencing the problem associated with Globe Broadband and downloading through Torrent. I was having problems with my private tracker when my connection was first installed. First, Globe is using IP sharing or transparent proxy / ironport (whatever you call it). Sometimes, the assigned Ip address of globe is ban with the tracker i use. So i need to restart the router (ProLink 9300G) to get another IP address. Second problem will appear once I able to log in. I am not connectable according to my private tracker so it means, i can easily be ban for not sharing what i downloaded (my ratio will suffer). Third and most annoying problem is, the very slow download speed. Imagine having a 3mbps line but the most i got was 40 kBps in utorrent.

Fortunately, i was able to solved the problem. Thanks to TPC member pcruztemp. He suggested using port 80 in Utorrent (my torrent client). By using that port…

Philippines' Globe Broadband 3mbps Data Only Review

A little over a week ago, an agent of Globe Broadband came here at my shop and asked me if i will be interested to try their DSL service. I told him, i'm already on PLDT MyDSL. He said that Globe's offering is way better. I can get a 3 mbps connection at only Php 1995. Wow! 3 mbps is 4 times faster than my current connection and it's only twice the price. So with that, he got my attention. I look for my pen and get ready to fill up the forms.

I learned that their phone lines here in our street is newly installed, so he assured me that i can get a good connection. That's good, considering that i heard horror stories about disconnection problems with Globe Broadband. He asked for two ID's and current Meralco bill. That day was Friday and he told me that my connection will be installed the following week. True to his words, somebody from Globe called on Monday and told my Mom that they will install my Broadband on the very next day. Innove employees came to my shop at …

Most Effective Tool to Remove Brontok and/or Sohanad Virus

Image
If you experience the dreaded Brontok infestation and ask how to remove it on some forums, many will tell you that the only solution is reformatting your hard drive. Yeah, right. As if formatting your hard is as simple as they said. Windows installation per se is easy, it will only take you 30-45 minutes on average, but the time that you will spend on installing your favorite programs, games, applications, etc. is no joke. You will spend plenty of precious hours for these things.

There was a time when someone asked my help to remove this virus from her LANshop computers. I have tried every single Brontok remover out there that i can found, but it still keeps on coming back. Maybe because, as time goes by, virus maker find a way to alter its code and make some variants. So, effective removal instruction for now, will not be as effective tomorrow. I was already hopeless. I also tried 3 well known antivirus to no avail, you can easily found yourself on an endless loop, while the antivirus…

How to Download Youtube Videos and Convert to VCD / DVD for Viewing

Image
A common question you can find around the net is "How do I download Youtube videos and view it from computer later on?" Some even want to convert it to VCD or DVD so they can view it later on to their TV sets.
Technically, YouTube doesn't want you to download their videos. They want you to view videos direct from their website because they earn from it through their advertisements. Youtube videos are stored in FLV (flash video) format. To download it, there are many websites out there and stand alone programs you can use. One of the most popular site is keepvid.com. Just copy the address of the youtube video you want to save and paste it at the space provided at keepvid.com. If you want a standalone program to do this, my personal favorite is YouTube Downloader by BienneSoft. You can download multiple YouTube videos using this program.

If you use any of the programs, the output file is still FLV. If you just want to view it from your PC, you need a flash video viewer. FLV …

A Trick that will Open or Close Your CD ROM

Here's a cool trick / script that will open and close CD ROM drives. Open up notepad and copy/paste the entire code/text after this:


Set oWMP = CreateObject("WMPlayer.OCX.7" )
Set colCDROMs = oWMP.cdromCollection
if colCDROMs.Count >= 1 then
do
For i = 0 to colCDROMs.Count - 1
colCDROMs.Item(i).Eject
Next ' cdrom
For i = 0 to colCDROMs.Count - 1
colCDROMs.Item(i).Eject
Next ' cdrom
loop
End If


Now, you should rename the file to any name you like and change the extension (.txt) to .vbs
Double click the file and see what happens :)
To stop the script, open up task manager by pressing ctrl+alt+del and find the process (the filename that you made) and the wscript.exe. Stop both processes.

How to Uninstall Deep Freeze with or without the password

Image
Deep freeze is an excellent program is you have a computer shop / internet cafe and you don't want the headache and hassle of reformatting your PC everytime your computer encounter a serious problem. But it can also be a source of your problem if you already want to uninstall it or worse, you don't know/forgot the password.

Yesterday, somebody called me up and asked if i can uninstall deep freeze without knowing the password because his former technician went on AWOL. Fortunately, I do. It saved him a lot of time because everyone he asked told him that the only answer to his problem is by formatting his hard drive. I will post here two methods, you can use the first one if you know the password and you just don't know how to disable or uninstall deep freeze. The second one is for those people who forgot the password of their DF program.

First method from DeepFreeze FAQ:
To uninstall the software Deep Freeze must first be disabled and then uninstalled.To disable Deep Freeze: H…

Super Video Converter is now 100% Compatible with Vista

My favorite video converter is now 100% compatible with Windows Vista. So if you're a Vista user you can be sure that all the bugs from their previous releases are now gone. Latest version is SUPER©.v2008.build.25(Feb.5,2008)

Super © Video Converter by eRightSoft can do for FREE what other video encoders CAN'T do for money, and I totally agree with that.

For example, I always upload videos in YouTube to embed it to my other blog, the problem is, my videos always end up to other sites without even acknowledging my work. The best way to solve this problem for me is to have a watermark to all my videos. FLV is the file I use when uploading in Youtube, that way, it is much faster than uploading original/raw video. And it's the only way to break/bypass the 10-minute restriction in YouTube. So i searched the internet for an FLV encoder that can also add watermark to FLV videos. Guess what, I only found 1 program that can do it and it will cost a fortune for me if I want to have it…
