Last year I wrote a detailed guide for creating a quick ad-hoc wireless connection between two computers in Windows Vista. The problem is that not everybody has wireless card installed in their computers. So this guide will focus on creating a Local Area Network(LAN) connection between two computers in both Windows Vista and XP.
First go and buy the straight patch Ethernet LAN cable(make sure that ‘patch’ or ‘crossover’ is written on the cord) and connect them to both computers.
In Windows XP: Go to Network Connections Control Panel, right-click Local Area Network connection and select Properties. Now select Internet Protocol(TCP/IP) and click Properties.
In Windows Vista: Go to Network and Sharing Center, select Manage Network Connections, right-click Local Area Network connection and select Properties. Now select Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4) and click Properties.Read More

The first thing you are going to wonder is why I wrote Maverick in the title? Some are going to laugh and some are going to take it seriously. I regularly check what my readers are searching for before coming to my blog. And surprisingly “How to use IP to find where you live” was one of the question many people were looking an answer for.
I wondered who will type such a question in Google? Even the dumbest person in the World knows where he is living. Then something else stuck my mind, suppose you get kidnapped or get lost somewhere in a crazy way(don’t know which one), you will surely want to know where the heck are you? So maybe someone typed this question because he could be in this exact situation.
But to know he needs a computer and a internet connection, maybe he searched using his Kidnapper’s laptop (Yeah I am thinking crazy at the moment).Read More
Beam-It-Up-Scotty.com is a site that allows users to send media content to your cell phone(or your friend’s cell phone) from your computer. In three easy steps you can download your favorite media content to your mobile phone or send files to your friend’s mobile phone. First you upload the file, then you compress it. Lastly you enter the cell phone information and then you are done. Most modern cell phones that support the 3gp format and the mp3 playback are also supported. You can compress the file after it has been uploaded to the system, which comes useful. A compressed file reduces downloading time and transfer costs.Read More
The best way to start your computer faster and improve the overall system performance is to reduce the number of programs that load when Windows start. Reducing the number of startup programs can help you in loading the Windows faster, saving RAM, and faster loading performance. Many people will be familiar with the way that requires installing and running Windows Defender, going to Tools > Software Explorer and from category selecting Startup Programs. This method works for many people but is not very effective.Read More
Are you tired of your computer that loads your Windows slowly? You can increase the performance slightly by disabling the visual effects, this process does not require any software to be installed. But there is one thing that you should remember, Disabling the Visual Effects in Windows XP and Vista will make your Windows look more like Windows 2000. You can always add new theme to add new looks later, so this is not a big problem. I remember disabling Visual Effects when I was using Windows Vista on my crappy Asus laptop which had only 512MB ram. Anyway this is how you do it.Read More
