Keyboard Shortcuts Keys

What is a Keyboard Shortcut?

In computing, a keyboard shortcut is a set of one or more keys that invoke a command in software or an operating system.

They are typically an alternate means for invoking commands that would otherwise be accessible only through a menu, a mouse, or an aspect of the user interface. These shortcuts can expedite common operations by reducing input sequences to a few keystrokes.

These shortcuts can provide an easier and quicker method of using computer programs. These commands are commonly accessed by using the [Alt] key (on PC computers), [command key] (on Apple computers), [Ctrl], and [Shift] in conjunction with a single letter.

These shortcuts are for the following programs and applications.

  • Word
  • Windows
  • Internet Explorer
  • File Explorer
  • Windows System Commands
  • Firefox
  • Excel
  • Mac
  • Finder
  • Chrome

Updates – Site, Sound, Shikaka

Shikaka by TheNeknowWow man, it has been ages since I contributed in any way towards my blog. I suppose it cannot be called a blog as a blog gets updated. This, I’m afraid, has not been the case with my little home on the web.

I’ve updated the back end of WordPress to the latest version and while I was at it, I realized that the theme I was using would have looked good back in my younger days or, worse yet, the days of Geocities. In light of that, an update and change was needed. I scratched deep & hard, not to mention thought about it for quite some time(about 3 minutes) and decided on dropping all fancy crap and instead go with a smooth, responsive and open look.

I might, at some point, decide to add more images and perhaps a real logo but until that day decides to roll in, this will be the future. If I’m really honest with myself I can admit that the old logo looked horrible. I’m not even sure if you can call it a “logo” by today’s standards. Heh, what a flop.

Work has been insanely busy lately. But busy in the best sense of the word: Toys. I’ve been getting new toys every week and have been worse than a kid at Xmas. I have been actively involved in the Raspberry Pi scene and with that came some really interesting projects.

But, more of that in a while.

Join the Battle for Net Neutrality

Save The Net

Sept. 10th is the Internet Slowdown

Cable companies want to slow down (and break!) your favorite sites, for profit. To fight back, let’s cover the web with symbolic “loading” icons, to remind everyone what an Internet without net neutrality would look like, and drive record numbers of emails and calls to lawmakers.
Are you in?

battle3

If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do?

Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.

Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?

On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.

If you’ve got a website, blog or tumblr, get the code to join the #InternetSlowdown here: https://battleforthenet.com/sept10th

Everyone else, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help spread the word about the slowdown:http://tumblr.fightforthefuture.org/post/96020972118/be-a-part-of-the-great-internet-slowdown

No more connections can be made to this remote computer at this time

Here’s a little trick I learned a couple of years ago that managed to pop up again today.

The problem with Microsoft Windows XP/Vista/7 is that you have a limit on how many concurrent connections can be made to the device. Windows XP usually has 10 and Vista/7 has 15.

If you have a small network and happen to have more devices connecting to it, you’ll have to install an operating system that supports more concurrent connections. You could go the *nix route or install one of the server flavours of Microsoft Windows

Or, you can do this:

  1. Click START
  2. Click RUN
  3. Type in: regedit
  4. Click on OK/RUN
  5. Locate and then click to select the following Registry Subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters
  6. In the Edit Menu, click NEW and click DWORD. (If exists, skip to step 8 )
  7. Type MaxMpxCT and press ENTER
  8. Right-Click MaxMpxCt and click Modify
  9. In the Value data box, choose DECIMAL ***
  10. Click OK and close the Registry
*** Note: You can set the number of concurrent SMB commands to a value that is between 10 and 255. The default value is 10 on MS Windows XP
Hope this helps >;]
