Imagine this, next morning at around 10:00AM you press the on button only to be greeted with clicking from your hard drive. Your heart stops for a second from this shock, but you calm yourself because nothing blatently has gone wrong. Yet. Then you get a BSOD (Assuming this computer has Windows). What would you do, would you just shrug and breath a sigh of relief that you backed up your information? Me, if it literally was next morning, I would be suicidal.
I ran out of space once again on my computer. I am a photographer and I take tons of photo every day. On a average I fill up a full 4GB memory card each day with photos. So over the past few years, I has accumulated photos to fill five hard disks and yet I am always short of space. Every year I take some time out and sit down and delete a lot of old photos of mine, otherwise the data simply become unmanageable.
While doing this yearly chore, I noticed that I had many similar looking…

For a while now I've been looking for a place to download a lot of font files in a single download. I was asking around, but I was still stuck in the middle of the ocean in a tiny little lifeboat. Chris sent me to keep searching and come back with what I've found.
I finally got an answer thanks to the help at Lockergnome.net. It took a little while for them to reply to me, but…
This nifty piece of software is a file compression software for Snow Leopard. But it's not any ordinary file compression, it uses Snow Leopards new HFS-compression technology that Snow Leopard has built in. Squeeze is a background file compressor, in which you set the folders you want compressed in system preferences and it will automatically go ahead with the compressing. And Snow Leopard will read the files normally just with the difference of the file size being smaller.…
I know we have all been there, you have a folder full of files and you need to add something after the name of each of them. This is a task that most people choose to do the hard way, by renaming each file individually. However if you want a program to rename all of the files for you, then you might have invested in some software that can do that kind of stuff. What I bet you didn't know though, is that you can do this for free on any installation of OS X. The application you will be using is… Continue

How many different media players would you say you have? 1 or 2? More?
I've lost count. There used to be the old classic windows media player of yore. It worked. It was fine. Then Microsoft started updating it. The screams of anguish could not be heard, due to an unsupported codec. Written complaints came in, but the addresses were in so many different formats that the postal service didn't know how to deal with them. A commitee was set up to try and sort out the problem but all the… Continue
Quite simply, it looks as though USB is coming to an end, at least for commercial and higher security purposes, not only because of the virus and other risks but because of the threat to security that USB devices pose whenever they are plugged in. For instance, a passer-by could simply walk into a commercial business or even a school, insert a USB removable device and transfer possibly thousands of critical documents and files and leave within a few minutes.
If you are familiar with Windows you know that you can show hidden files by changing the folder options to show them. However in OS X you have to run a terminal command. There is a way that you can leverage the wonderful power of Automator to make this an easier operation. Watch the video below to see how. Also if you have any other questions leave them in the comments section or in the contact me page. Enjoy!

If you are familiar with Quick Time player then you should know that it doesn't really support very many video formats. Basically all that it covers out of the box is .mp4 .mov, and all the similar formats. If you are a person that tends to download and produce a lot of video then there is one tool that you absolutely should have. It is Perian Downloadable Here and it is the "Swiss Army Knife for Quick Time". Below is a video that is going to show you how to… Continue
Here is how it went. I wanted to install a kind of theme file to windows that was not a .theme file. It said I needed to do a patching thing so I followed the directions, went into the windows folders and did things that I needed to do with the files and added other stuff. I was told to restart my computer and when I did, I was told it could not find the files and the screen was black. I panicked and tried safe startup modes that did nothing. Then, I had an idea. I grabbed my ubuntu disk and… Continue

If you have a Mac then you probably know that there is not a version of Windows Media Player out there for it. Sure you can go and download the older ones and that may get the job done, but they don't… Continue
Okay, so I've been downloading some files recently, and I've been slack lately on scanning them before I open them, and I opened one file that have a Trojan on it. I've ran SuperAntiSpyware a lot, and it's gotten most of it, but the Trojan has infected a System 32 file on Windows Vista (home premium)
I have ran Avast! like crazy, and it has found nothing. In fact it thinks that SuperAntiSpyware is a virus and it wants me to delete it. I don't know if the Trojan also got to… Continue
Well about every once or twice a month when i bootup Vista or Windows 7, my folders and files on my desktop go missing, and the mouse changes to the one found on Windows XP. I reboot (sometimes holding down the power button) and everything comes back. Can someone explane whats happning or how i can fix it? Its (i'm assuming) becoming more frequent.
Hey guys, I just bought a new HP desktop PC and am currently using an HP laptop PC. I know how easy it is to copy my files from this computer to the new one, however, is there a way to copy all of the PROGRAMS, not files, to the new one while still having them on the old laptop? I really don't want to have to go back to all of the websites and pull out all of the installation CDs again while still having to reconfigure all of the settings back to the way I like it for the programs. By the way,… Continue
unlimited disk space
whatever the hell you want to put on it
downside is you only get access to a ftp account were you can upload the files. (and just ask if you need some mysql added)
Why am I doing this? Well I really don't know why, I guess just for the hell of it.
just add a comment below if you are interested.
Oh, and i'm also offering to host domains.
