Check spellings on Internet Explorer - ieSpell 2.5.1 (build 106)

IE Spell

IESpell is a free Internet Explorer browser extension that spell-checks text-input boxes on a Web page. It should come in particularly handy for users who do a lot of Web-based text entry (Web mail, forums, blogs, diaries).

Even if your Web application already includes spell-checking functionality, this utility is faster than a server-side solution. Plus, you get to store and use your personal word list across all your applications instead of having to maintain separate ones on each application. Version 2.5.1 build 106 may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.

You can access ieSpell from Internet Explorer in 3 ways;

1) using the 'Tools' menu,

2) using the toolbar button, or

3) using the context (aka right-click) menu.

NOTE: If you are using MSN/AOL or other IE based browsers, only option 3 is available to you.

You may need to restart Internet Explorer for the changes to take effect.

Surf the net on laptop with mobile phone as modem

Surf the internet on you computer with mobile phone as the modem

Ever wanted to surf the net but didn't have a modem on your computer? You don't realy need a modem to be able to surf the net,you can simply use your cell phone as a modem.  


This short tutorial will teach how to set your phone as a modem connected to your computer/laptop.

1. You need a cell phone. It has to have GPRS and it must be modem enabled.

2.You need a means of connection from your cell phone to your computer or laptop (inferred,bluetooth or usb cable)

3.You need a dialup connection

4.You need to know and change your proxy settings

Step 1: Take your gprs enabled cell phone and connect it to your computer or laptop using either buletooth,infered or a usb cable.

Step 2: Create a dial up connection.Go into your control panel,then into internet options.Then go to connections and add. Create a dial up connection and when it asks for a phone number type in *99#

Step 3: On your new dialup connection add the same proxy address you have on your gprs in your cell phone.

Step 4: Now on your cpanel there should be something called modem options (If your 's doesn't have you'll have to search your computer for an option that allows you to change the acess point name or also known as the APN) here you must change the APN to whatever your APN is on yor gprs in your phone.

Step 5: Go to start menu and connect,then connect to your dial up (make sure your cell phone is connected to your computer or laptop)

Step 6: Start your browser (internet exploxer,opera etc) and start surfing the net.

Note that every cell phone has it's own speed for example 3g phones can reach up to speed's of 48 kb/s.

Problems faced:
1. First problem is that in order to run, most phones need the drivers installed. Now either bluetooth, infared or cable modems will be installed from the disc you get when u buy one. Now on the disk it should have the drivers on there, if not you will need to find another internet connection and download them.

2. Next, you CANNOT use Firefox, Bit torrent apps, IM apps, Opera, or any web based programs besides IE if you are connecting through a Proxy address. Also another downside of a proxy is your computer wont store the cookies from the phone so logging into sites may be difficult. Now in order to get around this block and use web based applications u will need to dowload a program called "Your Freedom" (Just google it as I cant remember site ATM) then enter in YF your proxy settings and it will work, and then add the proxy setting of localhost:8080 for HTTP and localhost:1080 for Socks 5. This will let you use opera and Firefox.

Ok and now I will give you some tips on how to make most of your phone as a modem.

1. Use Firefox with the FasterFox extension set up on the max and your browsing speed will be much better. An alternative is to use Opera

2. Use a download manager to speed up your downloads by 4 times and some times up to 8 times (say your av. DL speed was 1.0 Kb/s it will increase it to 4.0 Kb/s becuase it will download te file in 4 different places at once.) I reccomend using Get Right.

3. Get premium version of Your Freedom as it will get rid of 2 hour time limit and max of 10 connections. And you cant get a crack for it or anything as it uses the info from the account you set up on their site.

Firefox Bookmarks management

Bookmarks management in Firefox 3 onwards 
How to copy Bookmarks in Firefox 3 onwards

bookmarks.html stores bookmarks in Firefox 2 and below and in other Mozilla browsers. Starting in Firefox 3, places.sqlite is used instead of bookmarks.html for storing bookmarks.

The bookmarks.html is a file in the profile folder. Mozilla applications store a user's personal information in a unique profile. The first time you start any Mozilla application, it will automatically create a default profile; additional profiles can be created using the Profile Manager. The settings which form a profile are stored in files within a special folder on your computer — this is the profile folder. The installation directory also includes a "profile" folder but this folder contains program defaults, not your user profile data.

Operating system: Windows NT (NT4.x/2000/XP/Vista/7)
Profile folder location(s):  "%APPDATA%\Mozilla\"


Way to find the application data folder (profile folder):

Press [Windows Key]+ Run
→ Type in %APPDATA%
→ click OK

Editing bookmarks.html

Although the Bookmarks Manager is the primary interface for managing bookmarks, bookmarks.html can be edited directly. The file uses a simple HTML structure that includes definition lists, anchors, and headers. A typical bookmarks.html bookmark contains the URL, name, and other meta data:

ADD_DATE="1079992089" LAST_VISIT="1132078168" LAST_CHARSET=
"ISO-8859-1" ID="rdf:#$kLc2Z">Cascading Style Sheets, level
2 revision 1

The application should be closed before changes are made, else the changes will be overwritten.

Moving bookmarks.html

This file can be moved to a different profile without any extra effort.

Personal Unblocking Code (PUC / PUK)

A PIN Unlock Code (PUC) or PIN Unlock Key (PUK) is used in GSM mobile phones and some smartcards to unblock a blocked card.

Most mobile telephones offer the feature of personal identification number (PIN) protection. After switching on the phone, if the PIN security function is active, the user is requested to enter a 4-8 digit PIN enabling the phone's non-emergency calling functions.

If the wrong PIN is typed in more than 3 times, either the SIM card, the device or both become locked. They can be reverted to their original unlocked state by entering a PUC (PUK), provided by the service operator through verification.

If the wrong PUC (PUK) is entered 10 times in a row, the device will become permanently blocked and unrecoverable, requiring a new SIM card. Cellular phone users are therefore advised by most providers to keep their PUC (PUK) written down in a safe place separate from the device.

The PUC (PUK) is a SIM-specific code assigned by the service provider. It is near-impossible to guess and enter it; thus, if you do not know your PUC (PUK) and are prompted for it, you should get it from your service provider.

Please note (for Indian customers): You may directly contact the service provider and get the PUK number. For this you just need to have the mobile number.
