How to get rid from too many advertise on website

Too many ad annoying you on any site? mostly websites are having ad banners which make you stuck in the web traffic.. specially when you connect your system with mobile and surfing the net.. ads take lots of time to load.. pop up blocker is the one way to block pop up window advertise but when you get advertises on the pages you have to do little work..

I personally don't like videos streaming automatically with page load.. which take huge amount of time.. to avoid such situation after few R & D on google.. I found few ways.

  1. First of all install Mozilla firefox.. (Firefox is well known for addon support.) 
  1. Install Adblock Plus ( which stops ad displaying from google, adhitz, chitika and many more providers)
  1. Install Flashblock add on (which doesn't allow flash to be loaded automatically)
  1. Install TubeStop add on (Restrict videos to auto stream with page load)
Now surf the websites which has lots of advertises on the page.. say way2sms, various blog sites. and check.. you won't find any ad display around.

Alternatively if you want to hide all the images or flash from all tabs.. you can do with image flash blocker...

Mostly for those who likes to download from the net, finds issue that many embarrassing photos or videos  pop up in front and sometimes it's hard to open such site in a social environment..
This is also helpful when you are running with limited bandwidth internet connection or low speed internet connection..
Hope this is useful..

    Google's Self-Driving Car

    Google had announced in October, 2010 that it’s been building robotic cars that have been driving themselves around California.. — down curvy Lombard Street in San Francisco, across the Golden Gate Bridge, along the Pacific Coast Highway, around Lake Tahoe and from Google’s Mountain View headquarters to Santa Monica (a 350-mile trip).

    With Google Software Engineer Sebastian Thrun as the driving force behind the effort to develop autonomous cars, commuters can look forward to this science fiction dream soon becoming a reality. Thrun is working with a team of engineers who gained successful results in the Pentagon’s DARPA Challenges, a competition which sought to “leverage American ingenuity to accelerate the development of autonomous vehicle technologies that can be applied to military requirements,”


     "Our automated cars use video cameras, radar sensors and a laser range finder to “see” other traffic, as well as detailed maps (which we collect using manually driven vehicles) to navigate the road ahead. This is all made possible by Google’s data centers, which can process the enormous amounts of information gathered by our cars when mapping their terrain."

    "Our automated cars, manned by trained operators, just drove from our Mountain View campus to our Santa Monica office and on to Hollywood Boulevard. They’ve driven down Lombard Street, crossed the Golden Gate bridge, navigated the Pacific Coast Highway, and even made it all the way around Lake Tahoe."

    Google hasn’t really shown us much of what these cars are capable of on the road. Now, courtesy of Danny Sullivan at SearchEngineLand, we can see the system flexing its muscles, from both outside and inside a demo car. 

    Here are few videos on youtube related to Google self-driving car.

    Is your computer Male or Female ???

    Hi Friends. Well if you are wondering if there is any catch to the above line. I must say not. Basically every computer is given a gender along with other specifications. The inbuilt voice in the computer determines the gender of your computer.It is basically attributed with Microsoft Windows and I am not sure if you can find it out on other OS. So if you want to know what gender your computer is then here is a code for you...

    •   Open Notepad.
    •   Type or copy-paste: CreateObject("SAPI.SpVoice").Speak"I am Computer"
    •   Save as saycomputer.vbs
    •   Run the file.
    Guess what...???!!
    If you hear a male voice, you have a boy;
    If you hear a female voice, you have a girl


    it's really funny and new stuff.. 

    now apart from fun let's see Technical Reason behind it..

    it just use windows default speech to text converter voice. it's not about male or female..;-)
    you can get settings from
    Control Panel -> Speech
    see the following image..

    now one more interesting stuff..


    strMessage =Inputbox("Enter your message","Input Required")
    CreateObject("SAPI.SpVoice").Speak strMessage


    Save file as mycustommessage.vbs
    Double click it to run.
    when you run.. it ask for the input.. and will play according to input text of that message box.. 
    it's just VB-Script fun.. 
    Enjoy.. :-)

    pfSense 2.0-RC1 Now Available!

    Chris Buechler has announced the availability of the first release candidate for pfSense 2.0, a FreeBSD-based operating system for firewalls:

    For those who don't know about pfsense.. Some description for you..

    pfSense is a firewall/router distribution based on a fork of the m0n0wall (m0n0wall is an embedded firewall distribution of FreeBSD) project.

    pfSense includes most all the features in expensive commercial firewalls, and more in many cases.  All of these things are possible in the web interface, without touching anything at the command line.

    The official Announcement is :

    Years and many thousands of hours in the making, pfSense 2.0 Release Candidate 1 is now available! Most of the mirrors are synced up and have it available now, with the remaining couple syncing within the next few hours.

    This is considered a stable release suitable for production use, as we’ve already widely deployed it over the past several months in beta and upgraded numerous systems to RC1 over the weekend. This is the preferred version for new installations at this point.
    For existing 1.2.x users, upgrading will be a smooth process for most if not all scenarios. Some portions of the configuration are considerably different now than in 1.2.x releases, and we suspect there may be some configuration upgrade problems remaining, though we aren’t aware of any specific issues at this time and have tested a wide variety of configurations. If you encounter any upgrade issues, please post to the 2.0 board on the forum with information.
    Please report any problems, questions or comments to the 2.0 board on the forum.

    Here is the Download Link..
