My friend wanted access to a computer at college because he was working on his college project where they had to create a cloud farm using OpenStack.
He wanted to work from home (that is one of the perk if you are a software person). The computer was behind the college NAT. So, doing something like this would need the SysAdmin and presumably a convoluted process.
I found this nice remote forwarding [...]

I had been looking for a WordPress WXR (WordPress eXtended RSS) export file splitter as some hosts has limits over the upload file size limit and at times, I don’t get root access to edit the PHP.ini to lift the limits.
Windows has a neat little tool that helps people split WXR export files. http://www.rangerpretzel.com/content/view/20/1/
Sadly, at the time of this writing, none seems to be available [...]

I’m open sourcing my txtweb app @pushmail – An app that’ll send push email notifications via SMS.
What is @pushmail
It is an SMS app on the txtweb.com platform with which users can get instant email notifications via SMS. If they choose to, they can read full emails and reply to them. The user just has to setup a simple email forwarder. http://suhastech.com/mail

txtGPS is a GPS navigation system that works on SMS. So, you can use it without a Data plan i.e the internet. Might get you out of a tight spot (or you are just are just as cheap as me ).
As you all know, GPS is free and Data plan is not. This app basically gets the GPS coordinates and sends a text message to txtweb.com’s number to fetch the navigation directions.
As of now, it perfectly [...]

I bought a Kinect recently (got it shipped from the US) to find out that, it needed an AC adapter for my Original Xbox 360. The original one costs $49 but the problem is, we don’t get it here in India .
Well, I could make my own in under Rs. 20 (50 cents). All you need is:
Soldering Iron, soldering flux and the lead wire
Hot glue gun
Shielded USB Cable (I got mine from a mobile transfer cable)

We read about DDR2, DDR3 RAMs and such, given in every computer/laptop configuration. But have we ever bothered to find out what it actually means?
Many people brag about having 8 – 16 GB RAMs but in fact very few people know what exactly it does. We generally seem to think that higher the RAM, greater the speed. Actually, with emerging new technologies, that’s not necessarily the case. *

You just might the kind of person who gets a lot of emails and you found out that using mobile Internet each and every time you want to check your mail, isn’t quite helping your mobile bills either. But now, you have no need to worry, as you’ll soon find out how to get them via SMS. You just have to follow some few easy steps and you’re good to go.
This would be impossible without [...]

I had this problem
When I press the power button the first time, it does POST but does not detect my IDE hard drive. Then, it does not boot saying “no boot device” blah blah
After this, when I press reset (or quickly press the power button, twice), it detects my hard drive. So, my computer boots up my hard drive (Windows XP or whatever).
So, technically, the hard drive boots with a soft [...]

My mum wanted a portable speaker for her iPod (She’s obsessed with this article about headphones being bad for her ears). I had almost ordered the xMini speakers when I remembered I already had a portable speaker from my Sony Ericsson W810i.
It didn’t have a stereo (3.5 mm) port, just the Sony Ericsson connector. If you follow my blog, you’ll know that I’m the cheapest ass in town . I soldered [...]
