Sorry for incovenience regarding Lord Of Net updates. Last few days I'm concentrating more on C++ Lessons on my other website, but this will last just a few more days. Apparently that site got great response, and I'm currently in process of optimizing it. Please have little patience.. in the mean time read on some of this stuff peopel acctually said in court. It's hillarious! Hehe

Just to inform you that I've started another website with intention to learn people programming with visual studio using c++ language. It is a project which will enable total newbies to learn something, and feel mighty... now even you can impress girls by saying: "Hey, I know programming!". Check the site, and I'm eager to hear your comments! C++ Maniac.

However I won't stop publishing articles here, this webpage is gonna get more and more stuf in recent few days. You'll see.


One Speaker reproducing Surround Sound

Hey this could bring me joy in my future office cubicle with no space to put anything. Found this companys website where they announced they made sourround system based on only one speaker. Human brain decodes from where the sound is comming from, but this smart processor apparently manages to fool our brain (hey why insulting our intelligence!?), but positive is that it also saves your room space :) Read more about it on their website - Niro.

Scientists made some pretty disturbing claims opposing science we are used to: New studies in quantum physics propose a theory of acctual hyperspace, and what is more ineresting, US military has begun to cast its eyes over the hyperdrive concept. Space propulsion researcher at the US Department of Energy's Sandia National Laboratories has said he would be interested in putting the idea to the test. Energy needed to produce magnetic field arround the spaceship, and to push it to hyperspace is huge, however apparently US scientists managed to produce device capable of doing it, which in theory gives them neccessary technology to start testing!

More Ways To Speed Up Windows XP

6 comments

After 10 Simple Ways To Speed Up Windows XP & 10 Intermediate Ways To Speed Up Windows here's a (final?) release that will help you bring efficiency of your Windows operated PC to the max! This is focused on changes that any user can replicate and that won't damage your system.

Speed Up Boot Times I


This tweak works by creating a batch file to clear the temp and history folders everytime you shutdown so that your PC doesn't waste time checking these folders the next time it boots. It's quite simple to implement:

1. Open Notepad and create a new file with the following entries:

RD /S /q "C:\Documents and Settings\"UserName without quotes"\Local Settings\History"
RD /S /q "C:\Documents and Settings\Default User\Local Settings\History"
RD /S /q "D:\Temp\" <--"Deletes temp folder, type in the location of your temp folder"

2. Save the new as anything you like but it has to be a '.bat' file e.g. fastboot.bat or deltemp.bat

3. Click 'Start' then 'Run'

4. Type in 'gpedit.msc' and hit 'ok'

5. Click on 'Computer Configuration' then 'Windows Settings'

6. Double-click on 'Scripts' and then on 'Shutdown'

7. Click 'Add' and find the batch file that you created and then press 'Ok'

Speed Up Boot Times II

When your PC starts it usually looks for any bootable media in any floppy or cd-rom drives you have installed before it gets around to loading the Operating System from the HDD. This can waste valuable time. To fix this we need to make some changes to the Bios.

1. To enter the bios you usually press 'F2' or 'delete' when your PC starts

2. Navigate to the 'Boot' menu

3. Select 'Boot Sequence'

4. Then either move your Hard drive to the top position or set it as the 'First Device'

5. Press the 'Escape' key to leave the bios. Don't forget to save your settings before exiting

Note: Once this change has been made, you won't be able to boot from a floppy disc or a CD-rom. If for some strange reason you need to do this in the future, just go back into your bios, repeat the steps above and put your floppy or CD-rom back as the 'First Device'

Speed Up Boot Times III

When your computer boots up it usually has to check with the network to see what IP addresses are free and then it grabs one of these. By configuring a manually assigned IP address your boot time will improve. To do this do the following:

1. Click on 'Start' and then ''Connect To/Show All Connections'

2. Right-click your network adapter card and click 'Properties'.

3. On the 'General' tab, select 'TCP/IP' in the list of services and click 'Properties'

4.I n the TCP/IP properties, click 'Use the following address' and enter an IP address for your PC. If you are using a router this is usually 192.168.0.xx or 192.168.1.xx. If you are not sure what address you could check with your ISP or go to 'Start/run' and type 'cmd' and then 'ipconfig/all'. This will show your current IP settings which you will need to copy.

5. Enter the correct details for 'Subnet mask', 'Default gateway' and 'DNS Server'. Again if you are not sure what figures to enter use 'ipconfig/all' as in stage 4.

Free Up Memory

I found this useful app via FixMyXP. ClearMem Is an Excellent Tool for speeding up your XP Computer (especially if your system has been on for awhile and you have a lot of applications open). What it does, is it Forces pages out of physical memory and reduces the size of running processes if working sets to a minimum. When you run this tool, the system pauses because of excessive high-priority activity associated with trimming the working sets. To run this tool, your paging file must be at least as large as physical memory. To Check your Paging File:

1. Go to your control panel, then click on 'System', then go to the 'Advanced' Tab, and Under 'Performance' click 'Settings' then the 'Advanced' Tab

2. On the Bottom you should see 'Virtual Memory' and a value. This is the value that must be at least as large as how much memory is in your system.

3. If the Virtual Memory Value is smaller than your system memory, click Change and change the Min Virtual Memory to a number that is greater than your total system memory, then click 'Set' and Reboot.

4. Once you have rebooted install ClearMem

Ensure XP Is Using DMA Mode

XP enables DMA for Hard-Drives and CD-Roms by default on most ATA or ATAPI (IDE) devices. However, sometimes computers switch to PIO mode which is slower for data transfer - a typical reason is because of a virus. To ensure that your machine is using DMA:

1. Open 'Device Manager'

2. Double-click 'IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers'

3. Right-click 'Primary Channel' and select 'Properties' and then 'Advanced Settings'

4. In the 'Current Transfer Mode' drop-down box, select 'DMA if Available' if the current setting is 'PIO Only'

Add Correct Network Card Settings

Some machines suffer from jerky graphics or high CPU usage even when a machine is idle. A possible solution for this, which, can also can help network performance is to:

1. RightClick 'My Computer'

2. Select 'Manage'

3. Click on 'Device Manager'

4. DoubleClick your network adaptor under 'Network Adapters'

5. In the new window, select the 'Advanced' tab

6. Select 'Connection Type' and select the correct type for your card and then Reboot

Remove Annoying Delete Confirmation Messages

Although not strictly a performance tweak I love this fix as it makes my machine 'feel' faster. I hate the annoying 'are you sure?' messages that XP displays, especially if I have to use a laptop touchpad to close them. To remove these messages:

1. Right-click on the 'Recycle Bin' on the desktop and then click 'Properties'

2. Clear the 'Display Delete Confirmation Dialog' check box and click 'Ok'

If you do accidently delete a file don't worry as all is not lost. Just go to your Recycle Bin and 'Restore' the file.

Disable Prefetch on Low Memory Systems

Prefetch is designed to speed up program launching by preloading programs into memory - not a good idea is memory is in short supply, as it can make programs hang. To disable prefetch:

1. Click 'Start' then 'Run'

2. Type in 'Regedit' then click 'Ok'

3. Navigate to 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchParameters\'

4. Right-click on "EnablePrefetcher" and set the value to '0'

5. Reboot.

I hope you find these changes useful. If you have any tips you want to share, or if you have any questions about the tips listed here then please leave a comment below.

Think this will blow you away... real SF happening in your lifetime. Make way for the ultimate high-rise project: the space elevator. Long viewed as science fiction "imagineering", researchers are gathering momentum in their pursuit to propel this uplifting concept into actuality. Apparently all the needed technology is almostcomplete. The elevator would be a smooth 62,000-mile (100,000-kilometer) ride up a long cable. Payloads can shimmy up the Earth-to-space cable, experiencing no large launch forces, slowly climbing from one atmosphere to a vacuum. Theese two companyes have already annunced its built and the clock started ticking. Visit their webpages here and here! But before you do I reccomand reading wikipedia for Space Elevator.





How big Internet really Is... ?

Am pretty shure no one except Google knows that, but if you start from The First Internet Webpage and if you manage to browse all of it's domains in a single second (predicting no new domains born in this particular second), you may get some astonishing results (beware the study is made in 2000). By now you have certanly reached The Last Webpage and could be wise for you to download Internet data before you can safely shut it down! Here... now you have all the knowoledge for yourself, muhuhahaha!!
