Frequent quick copy or Move



To copy quick to a certain location without jumping to copy and paste I usually get files in certain location, and most of the time want to move/copy them into same destination location A quick way to do that, is creating shortcut to that destination folder inside the source folder. Then when I want to copy/move a file, I just drag that file from the source folder (with CTRL to force copy, with Shift to force move) into the shortcut And it will be moved/copied as I intended to :-) Read more >>>

Craigslist notification on your WinPhone 7



After I changed my phone from Android to Windows 7 (From Samsung Epic 4G to HTC Arrive) early March, I had several challanges.
One of them was to find the alternative application for CragisNotifica that works for Windows Phone 7.
IT took me a while after trying several ones and bought others, the alternative is here .... Read more >>>

Google Calendar in Windows 7 Gadgets

Finally, got the Windows 7 gadget that reads my Google calendar. whoo, that was tough

Sounds very easy to find one, but since Windows Gadget service has been shutdown and only few gadgets are online within Microsoft website, I needed to search for a while.
Find the app within the Auther site, or here in Lib - ANmars Recommended Apps (ARA)

Finally found it, thanks to Eelke Spaak

My own HTTP server on Win7 ... finally

After few days of trying and failing, I managed tonight to have access to my own server, it is actually a folder on my own laptop that I can access using an IP address+Port.

It was indeed one of my oldest dreams, to get my own server, I don't have one yet, but I know how to do one, I was lost among the IPs, ISPs, DNSs, and stuff like that until made it.

The trick was that my ISP was blocking the port 80, so I have to add another port to my Firewall, then add a port forward in my router firewall (Since I am behind a router) to have access to it.

Check my free subdomain linked to my ip here ANmar.Hopto.org Read more >>>

DX-Ball game

I had this game since 2001, one of my clients in File1 gave it to me, He said that you will love it, at that time I was kind of away from games and consider them a waste of time (I still feel that sometimes) however I became easily addicted to it, not only me, other friends and customers were easily addicted to it.


It needs no setup at all, just unzip and play
Download it from here

Installing Windows Home Server

It was kind of slow, but it did installed on my P4 computer.

It has only 504MB of RAM, and installed and running kind of smooth.

I was also successful in sharing hard drives/Printers along with adding new hard drives to the server.

However, I wanted to do the Remote Sharing, but it is not working, I might need to replace the router to do that, let me see.

    Installing XP on VISTA-Only Computers

    I am now taking the challenge to install XP on computers already with VISTA.
    This is really a challenge since you need to disable the SATA setting in the BIOS, and the name of the setting is not the same in every PC.
    Sometimes they call it Enable SATA compatible.
    Also you will need to get the drivers ready for all devices, and after that, you will have to try more than one for every device since the first time is always wrong.
    You may need to look for the device drivers for another machines that are compatible with your device, something like searching HP laptop drivers for the modem that your DELL is using.

    Sometimes also the drivers for VISTA can run in XP (If you did not use the exe file and install the driver from the Control Panel instead
