Cleverly Repair Large Corrupted Files with BitTorrent Client Checksum Hash Scans

I admit, I have a very fast broadband connection at home. My link speed is more than 6 Mbps. You’d think I can’t complain. But there are some files that seem to download for an eternity. Take, for instance, the Windows Vista Beta. On my connection, that 4 GB bloatware *.ISO mammoth took about two hours to download. Even, when I used DownThemAll!, it took about an hour and a half!

Disable Feature Cripplers Like WinLock by Changing Windows Registry Policies

When I was a high school senior. I was in charge of the network and the technology lab. Part of my job included maintaining and fixing the computers.

Preserve Table Width Dimensions in MySpace

I have this MySpace pet peeve. I hate it when people post comments with pictures that throw my profile page out of whack. Don’t get me wrong, I like to see that my friends are “showin me love.” 🙂 But, they should do it in the confines of my profile. Don’t post huge pictures that go off the screen! I mean not everybody has a 20 inch widescreen monitor!

Of course, I don’t want to delete comments from these “perpetrators” but I do want to resize these pictures and flash programs. Its a pity that MySpace does not offer an edit function for comments left on pages.

So, I devised a little CSS code that will automatically resize everything larger than 250 pixels on the fly. Look at this before and after.
