I remember I wrote an article in this blog on the same topic. I tried to illustrate the importance of Search Engine Optimization ( SEO ). The knowledge and information is spreading through Internet several times quicker than any other mean. And people are getting more and more dependent on information search using Internet. Internet is infact making a bridge between the information seeker and publishers. This is why it is equally important to know how to reach the information seeker as well as to know how to get desired information. If any one wants to draw more and more attention to his/her site he/she should provide the relevant information with adequacy and also make a proper plan to reach the right people. Therefore, I believe that the most important thing for a successful website is to be rich in terms of content or information. It really doesn’t matter that much if your site is on top of the search result, unless there are plenty of things which will attract people to get back to your site at a later time. The more the contents (the more the keywords) the more it is likely to be searched and viewed by the people. So I will conclude here saying that increase the amount with diversified information, the search engines are waiting to link those to the people.
There are a few things that can be done in times of grave emergencies. Your mobile phone can actually be a life saver or an emergency tool for survival. Check out the things that you can do with it:
The Emergency Number worldwide for Mobile is 112. If you find yourself out of the coverage area of your mobile; network and there is an emergency, dial 112 and the mobile will search any existing network to establish the emergency number for you, and interestingly this number 112 can be dialed even if the keypad is locked. Try it out.
Have you locked your keys in the car?
Does your car have remote keyless entry? This may come in handy someday. Good reason to own a cell phone: If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call someone at home on their mobile phone from your cell phone.
Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the person at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone on their end. Your car will unlock. Saves someone from having to drive your keys to you. Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away, and if you can reach someone who has the other “remote” for your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk).
Editor’s Note: It works fine! We tried it out and it unlocked our car over a mobile phone!”
Hidden Battery Power (May not be applicable for new model handsets)
Imagine your mobile battery is very low. To activate, press the keys *3370# Your mobile will restart with this reserve and the instrument will show a 50% increase in battery. This reserve will get charged when you charge your mobile next time.
How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?
To check your Mobile phone’s serial number, key in the following digits on your phone: *#06#
A 15 digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe. When your phone get stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your handset so even if the thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally useless. You probably won’t get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can’t use/sell it either. If everybody does this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones.
I encountered a very tricky problem with hidden files and the option in the “Folder Option” menu in Windows. A virus spreaded from and external pen drive and ultimately slowed down the windows so much and at a certain point the windows wasn’t even starting and eventually I had to reinstall the Windows. But the problem wasn’t over even after reinstalling the windows. Another symptom was that when I double clicked on any of the Drives a new window opened everytime, and later on double clicking was’t working at all. I had to navigate through the browser. Later I had to follow a set of instruction to get rid of this problem:
PART: A (Removing the Virus/worm/trojan)Â
1. Install AVG antivirus solution and update it.
2. IÂ had NC (Norton commander)a very old dos based explorer, . I opened NC from the command prompt, and through it I could browse through my drives and could see what damages the virus did. There was a file named u.batÂ and also autorun.ini in all my drives. I deleted those. Then I made sure that the file named amvo.exe (C:\windows\system32\amvo.exe) was deleted (stop it from the taskbar if it is running in the process tree). Then I deleted almost all the files in the “system volume information” folder (restore point files). Remember, I used NC to do the above jobs as the files I mentioned above were in hidden format and wasn’t visible through normal explorer. But through NC you can browse and delete these.
The above method worked in my case, but cannot be guaranteed in all the cases.
PART: B (Fixing “Show Hidden Files & Folder” problem)
Go to the following registry key: (go to Start >> Run >> type “regedit” and then press “ok”)
DELETE the value CheckedValue in the right window. (Its type should be REG_SZ and data should be 2.)
Now create a new DWORD value called CheckedValue (same as above, except that the type is REG_DWORD). Modify the value data to 1 (0x00000001).
This should let you change the “Show Hidden Files and Folders” option now.
Be safe, be careful, use protections, ensure prevention and avoid cure hassles. 😉 😉
