A random tip

How to avoid slowing your computers performance:
Getting rid of programs you don’t use and deleting unnecessary files from your hard drive can go a long way to speed up your computer. Even if you have 200gb free space aswell, getting rid of clutter can significantly increase the speed of your computer!

[Hotkeys v2] A few hotkeys that will boost your productivity!! [windows]

Here is an updated list of useful hotkeys that I use nearly every day!:

Win + E brings up ‘computer’ window

Win + X brings up windows mobility centre (screen brightness/volume)
Windows button + r = brings up the 'run' window
Alt+F4 = Close a window, or an application, brings up the shutdown screen if on desktop.(good for when your at work!)
Alt + Tab = Cycle through open applications. (also good for quickly hiding tabs)
Windows button + m = Minimize all apps. VERY useful for instantly getting to your desktop! Note another hotkey: Windows button + w is just like Windows button + m but if you press it again your windows will come up again
Windows button + f = Find files/programs on your computer.
When you are in your browser you can use CTRL+F and then type something to find that specific word on that page.
You can also hold Ctrl and scroll up/down to zoom in/out while you are in your browser.
And last but not least we have the most common shortcut that everyone should know how to use:
Copy the file/text CTRL + C
Paste the file/text CTRL + V
Cut the file/text (deletes after copying) CTRL + X
Undo last action CTRL + Z
Reverse last Undo action if possible CTRL + Y

Here are some more useful shortcuts for people using  Windows 7:
Win+Space: All windows become transparent so you can see through to the desktop.
Win+Up arrow: Maximize the active window.
Drag window left/right: Dock the window to fill half of the screen.
Shake window back/forth: Minimize everything but the current window. (usefull!)

Awesome USB gadgets! [USB rc Tank]

There is nothing more fun then barraging your co-workers with tiny foam missiles with a rc tank that can shoot up to 15 feet!

This little beast can be controlled via a USB remote control that you can control from included pc software. This software will allow you to steer the tank and raise or lower its missile pod.

The best thing is that no one will ever know it is you! As you will not be holding a remote! But unfortunately there is no on-board camera so you will have to be able to see your tank to be able to control it properly.

Though Id share this with you as it is totally awesome, but alas I dont know where I can buy one! Ill try using the google machine.

[Tutorial] Anti-viruses and keeping your computer secure

Keeping your computer secure from hackers, adware and viruses is not very hard, all you need is some common sense and some know-how. Here and the next few following posts I will teach you a few simple steps you can take to help prevent your computer from being infected or hacked.

anti-virus scanners

1. One of the best free antivirus scanners that I have come across is easily Malwarebytes anti-malware from -> If you have not got this on your computer I recommend heading over to their website and download it right now! The only downside to this program is that it has no run-time scanning (this is the free version), it has to be manually updated and set to start scanning.

2. Another great free antivirus is avast. It is a good all-round anti-virus with runtime scanning (scans files as you use them) it also automatically updates and has a gaming mode so it does not start scanning your computer/downloading updates while you have this option ticked.

MalwareBytes+Avast+Windows firewall is a great combination for all of your antivirus needs.

One more Extremely useful tip is that if you ever download a suspicious file eg: 'CSS HACK 2.4' you can use an online scanner such as -> to upload your file to a server that will then scan that file with many different antiviruses to see if it is infected or not. You will then be given the result.

[Tutorial] How to secure your Wi-Fi network.

In this day and age WiFi is getting used more and more. Its easy to setup, cheap and easy to add extend upon.

But alas with using wifi there also comes some risk. As you are sending your information through the air (unlike a physical cable) it can be intercepted or unintended users could access your network.

Here are a few simple steps that will throw off your next door neighbours kid with his skid hacking tools and make your wifi network secure.


WEP stands for Wireless encryption protocol Wep is practically useless, It can be cracked within a matter of seconds using automated tools that can be downloaded from the internet. Hence why you should use WPA. WPA is more secure and takes more skill to crack.

Mac address filtering

If your router has this option, USE IT.
To find your MAC (or physical address) in the CMD command prompt type 'ipconfig /all'
Copy the physical address and paste that into your 'Allow from only selected MAC' MAC address list. This will make your router only accept traffic from the specified MAC addresses.

Disable the broadcast of SSID

SSID is the name of your network (SSID stands for standards for service set identifier), Select the option so your SSID is not broadcast or visible, People will need to type in the name of your network to join it. So if your next-door neighbour is searching for a open network they wont be able to find it and they will need the exact name to be able to join!

If you have any questions, feel free to ask and I shall get back to you ASAP

Get a VPS Completely Free!

Hello there, this is BloggerRage. I welcome you to my guide describing
the method to get a free VPS. Here is some basic information about the VPS.
Disk Space : 15GB
Data Transfer limit : 5GB
Processor : 2.2Ghz
Internet Speed : 100MBPS
Lifetime of VPS : 5 Days from registration. Hey com’n it’s free!
Please note
This VPS will not run in any domain that means you can’t run any site from this VPS. BUT, you can run
any bot, software that needs running for long time and any other of your 'special' needs!
everything you want but can’t do with your slow speed.
What you can do with this VPS:
Do heavy data transfer. I want to share one of my usages; I got a job one day to transfer a site to one
host to another host. It was a movie site that has a Database of 150MB; my download speed is 15kbps
so how can I download it to my pc then upload to the another web host? I just turn my VPS up,
download the database in 5 seconds, and upload in 2 seconds. Job done
You just need to follow two steps that’s all!
I have run a test

Step One: Starting The VPS

1. Visit this site:
2. You will see a button named “Free trial” on the top right corner
to chose, USA or UK. You have to choose one of them. Click on the desired server location.
3. You will now see a “Registration Form”. You have to fill it up.
your email and mobile phone number has to be correct.
4. After you click “Register”, they will send the password via email and SMS. Check both of them and
figure out the password. The first part of the password will be sent to email and the second part of the
password will be sent to your mobile phone.
5. Now go to the site again, chose your server location and click login.
6. Once you’re logged in with your email and password you are ready to setup your VPS.
7. You will see a box on the right hand side of the control panel n
like this:
Now c
8. You will see a server created on the left side of the control panel. Now, get its “VNC IP” and “VNC
9. Google the word “TightVNC”, download
10. Setup the software and run it. Give your server IP and it will ask for the password. Copy-Paste
password and bam! You’re on your VPS

of the page. You will see two options
Important: You can give fake name, but
e named “Create Server”. Make a server
click “Create”. Bam! Your VPS is running.
d VPS.

Step Two: Installing Operating System

11. After you login with TightVNC, a window will pop up. You will see “Windows Server 2008
installation” in it. Click “Install now”
12. Enter this serial number on the next page:
13. On the next page, you will be asked to select your windows’ edition. Select the “Data Center”
edition. Click next.
14. Agree with the agreements and click next.
15. Your OS is installing now, wait until it’s finished and restarted. Normally it takes 10-15 mins. You can
close TightVNC, watch some porn’s and login again. Remember your VPS will always running if you don’t
shut down it from Elastichost’s Control Panel.
16. After the installation is finished, you will be asked to create an Administrator account. Create it with
a good password. Must be 8 characters long, with uppercase letters and numbers.
Your VPS is created and running. Now you can run any software/bot.
1. If you want to visit websites, download anything, you should download Firefox even though there is
Internet explorer already. IE will give warnings each time you visit a site. It’s so annoying, believe me.
2. You might download TeamViwer and install, if you are having slow speed on tightVNC.

A Guide to Proxies

Here are some tips on using proxies. I will be updating this to re-word it and make it better.

Simply send an Email to the following Email address to receive a list of proxies daily.

If your school/workplace blocks proxies/hosting sites, there is usually at least one or two that have made it past the filter in those e-mailing lists. (from my experience at a very strict college.)

Another method of gaining access to blocked websites at your work/school is to download Firefox Portable from  you will also, obviously, need a USB.

And then getting some proxies from at home or a computer that does not have filtered internet and copy a few to a text file and save it somewhere you can find later on your USB

 then add them to Firefox portable via Tools>Options>Advanced>network>(connection)Setting>Manual proxy configuration. Then pasting that information into the HTTP proxy text box.
NOTE: when you copied the proxies from they should look like this notice the :80?  This is the port number that needs to be entered next to the IP of the proxy in the text box.

Websites such as runescape,tublr,forums (or anything for that matter) banned your proxies? Give this site a visit "" , they update their list with new proxies constantly!
