Try downloading octy's GPSopt application. It's available free of charge at Google Market.
It resolves the slow signal acquisition of the Samsung's GT-i5801 (perhaps on other phones as well). I use it together with GPSstatus (also available at Google Market) and no longer have GPS signal issues.
If the Show Desktop icon is deleted from Quick Launch, the procedure below will recreate the file.
Open Notepad and enter the following text:
[Shell] Command=2 IconFile=explorer.exe,3 [Taskbar] Command=ToggleDesktop
Save the new file as Show Desktop.scf (note the SCF extension) then drag and drop the icon on the Quick Launch bar or whatever location you want the shortcut to appear.
A new type of rootkit has recently been seen. While most modern rootkits use the MBR and unused sectors of a harddrive, this one also misuses NTFS metadata to inject malicious code into a running OS.
By default, Thunderbird shows the namespaces of IMAP folders as a seperate folder containing the subfolders belonging to that namespace. An example of this is when you use Google Mail and have IMAP access configured.
An add-on exists for Thunderbird which gets rid of the namespace folder and sorts all subfolders in the root tree:
This is particularly useful for Google Mail where the sent mail, trash and other system folders are stored in a namespace called [GMail]. This way, these folders are stored directly in the root of the tree rather than in a subfolder named after the namespace.
In case of an infection with phony anti-spyware software (such as Anti Spyware 2009), where the EXE file association has been corrupted, use these Registry fixes to reset them to default behaviour.
Found this tool on some obscure site (don't even know where anymore). It's the most easy-to-use patcher to remove the TCP/IP simultaneous connections limit in Windows XP.
I've uploaded it on my site because I can't find the download link anymore*.
* If anyone has a problem with me mirroring it here, contact me through regular channels.
For a daily automated reboot, create a cmd-script with this content.
@echo off shutdown -r -t 5 -f -c "daily reboot"
Add it as a task in task scheduler, set to daily, weekly, or whatever you want.
A good explanation about setting up SPF-records for domains can be found here:
To have scripted automated backup of PostgreSQL databases on a linux platform, you can create a script like so:
#!/bin/bash PGPASSWORD="your-password" /usr/bin/pg_dump -U user database > sql-file.sql
Replace user and your-password with your username and password; replace database with the database you want to backup. The output of the dump goes to stdout and can be piped to a plain text file or compressed to something else.
A plugin for Thunderbird exists for easy import and export of mails in all sorts of formats. It is available for all platforms and can be downloaded here:
One of the features is the ability to import entire folders and subfolders containing mails in .eml format.
There will be some maintenance going on today and tomorrow, each time at night. During that time, our website might not be accessible.
It is possible to have multiple iPhoto libraries, and not just one. To create a new library, hold down the Option (⌥) key while starting iPhoto. This will prompt you to create a new library or open an existing one.
Alternatively, you can also use iPhoto Buddy, which allows you to easily select libraries from a nice GUI.
