Administrative Tools, Event Viewer, Windows Logs, Application. Scroll down
the Application Events looking for Wininit in the Source Column. You can also
use Find in the right column to help locate each Wininit entry. Open Wininit
and there it is. Here is one of my Wininit logs:

Merge MP3

Download the latest release here. Simply unzip MergeMP3.exe from inside the ZIP file, place it into any directory and execute it.

It is often necessary to merge multiple sound files into one recording. This need may arise for various reasons: merge ripped CD tracks into one, combine multiple chapters of an audiobook, etc. There are many great programs to achieve this, but very few of them are actually free. I've discovered that while all of these programs perform the task well, they also contain lots of other features, making them too complicated for the tasks. This is why when I needed the plain vanilla merging utility, I could not find one that was free - and decided to write one myself. The added benefit of writing one myself, of course, is that it has exactly the features I need - and none that I don't. When it was done - I decided to give it away for free - to alleviate some of the pains I had.

Below are some screenshots of the program. Click on each image for a large picture.

[Back to Top]

Program Features
The features of the program are not numerous - but everything you need is here:

  • Merge as many files as you like - no limitations by size, length, or number.
  • Sort files to be merged by filename (with or without directory), date/time or size.
  • Optionally write ID3v1 and ID3v2 tags into the merged MP3 file.
  • Optionally write VBR frame into the merged file - useful when merging files with different bitrates.
  • View detailed information about MP3 files to be merged, including MPEG header information and ID3v1 and ID3v2 information.
  • Choose to use ID3 tag from any of the files to be merged to write into the target file.
  • Display an image embedded into the MP3 files.
  • Play MP3 files from the list to be merged.
  • No complicated installation - simply unzip the program and run from any directory.
  • Very intuitive interface.
  • Very fast merge speed.
  • It's absolutely FREE!

Microsoft Outlook: How do I receive a return receipt?

When sending an e-mail, you can request a return receipt. This is a message that will let you know that your e-mail was delivered. You can either set this option on individual e-mail messages, or as a global option to apply to all e-mail sent.

To set this option for an individual e-mail, inside your mail window choose View, Options.

You have two different options. If you check the Request a delivery receipt for this message box, you will receive a confirmation when the e-mail is successfully delivered. If you check the Request a read receipt for this message box, you will receive a confirmation when the e-mail is opened by the user. (This second option will only work for Byu-Idaho addresses or for other e-mail services that support this feature). When finished, click Close.

To set this option globally, click on Tools, Options and then on the Preferences tab and the E-mail Options button. Now click the Tracking Options button. You should see the screen below. You have the same two options here. Set them to your preference and click OK.

Free VPN

Have you ever wanted to get a VPN but all sites ask you to pay for it. Well you’re in the right place, you have found a free one on my site. This VPN can be used to bypass any restriction by any ISP such as site blocking, voip blocking, firewalls… or simple you can use it to stay anonymous on internet in facebook, myspace, messenger or any other site or software that uses internet. Here are the VPN details:

VPN Free Account
Host Server or IP Address :
User Name : anonymous
Password : anonymous

  • This VPN gives you a valid IP from server instead of your real IP.
  • 128bit Strong Encryption prevents even your ISP from spying on you!
  • A VPN connection also helps prevent data theft (such as passwords or credit card numbers) when you’re connecting from wireless or remote locations.
  • VOIP (Betamax, Skype, etc) - This VPN works with VOIP carriers worldwide. The VPN for VoIP service will allow you to place VOIP calls even if they are being blocked by your ISP or other entity. VPN encryption disguises the fact that you are placing a VOIP call and only a connection to our server will show up in ISP logs with no mention of any VOIP port.
  • Secures you when using unsecured internet locations such as hotels, airports, internet cafes, cruise ships, university computers, etc. VPN encryption guards all your data from the time it leaves your computer until it reaches our server.
  • Packet Sniffing - VPN’s proprietary software installed on this server protects your privacy even in the event someone tried to use packet sniffing to monitor your internet activities.
  • Post on bulletin boards without displaying your real IP address.
  • You can access the system from any number of computers simultaneously! This means you can use the service while traveling, at work, at school, or away from home.
  • Multi Protocol Services - You can make PPTP, L2TP IPsec connections.
  • Choice of Servers in : USA ( California ) + UK + Germany will be given here soon.

If you dont know how to setup a VPN connection here is how you can do it:

Windows Vista cannot obtain an IP address from certain routers or from certain non-Microsoft DHCP servers FIX

Reference >>
This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
322756 ( ) How to back up and restore the registry in Windows
To resolve this issue, disable the DHCP BROADCAST flag in Windows Vista. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start
    Collapse this imageExpand this image
    Start button
    , type regedit in the Start Search box, and then click regedit in the Programs list.

    Collapse this imageExpand this image

Remove Saved Passwords In Windows XP

Windows XP gives you the ability to store user names and passwords on your local computer so you do not have to enter in your credentials each time you access different sites or resources. Of course this provides some simplicity for users that have to remember more than one user name and password. However, in terms of security, any one who sits down at your computer while you are logged on can then access sites and resources using your cached credentials.

You can view and remove the stored credentials on your computer using the following steps:

1. Click Start and select Run.
2. Type in rundll32.exe keymgr.dll, KRShowKeyMgr and Click OK.
3. The Stored User Names and Passwords dialog box will appear.
4. You can remove an entry by selecting it from the list and clicking the Remove button.
5. Click Close..

How to Install Google Analytics on Blogger

How to Install Google Analytics on Blogger
Posted: Thursday, January 29th, 2009 | Author: Davidd Cowgill

Google Analytics Blogger LogoWouldn’t it be nice to know how many people actually visited your blog each day? How about knowing which of your posts are the most popular? Well surprisingly Blogger doesn’t currently offer any native blog analytics but fortunately there is Google Analytics — available for free.

Google Analytics is a great tool that will show you all sorts of useful information about how people found your blog, keywords they searched on to find you, where they came from and even how long they stayed. You’ll learn more about where your visitors come from and how they interact with your blog. This is a must tool if you are trying to build a profitable blog otherwise you are flying blind!

This article will show you how to add Google Analytics to your Blogger blog. It’s a fairly simple process and doesn’t require any technical skill at all.
Step #1 - Setup a Google Analytics Account

Go to Google Analytics and sign in using your Blogger login. If your account doesn’t work for some reason, you can create a new one instead. Once you login you’ll see a screen that looks like this:

Google Analytics Blogger Sign Up Step 1

Click on the “Sign Up >>” button and proceed to the next step which will ask you for your general information. Website URL, Account Name, Country, and Time Zone. The screen will look like this:

Google Analytics Blogger Step 2

If you noticed, I just put my Blogger url (without the http://) and called it “David’s Account” because this is your top-level container for 1 or 100 different websites so it’s a good idea to name it something more general. The next step will ask you for your contact information which includes your first name, last name, phone number, and country. Easy so far right? :-)

Google Analytics Blogger Step 3

Your last step in signing up will ask you to accept the user agreement terms and conditions which you should read (just kidding…who actually ever reads these entire legal terms anyhow?).

Google Analytics Blogger Step 4

Now this next screen is very important. This is the code you will need to copy and paste into your blogger template. Go ahead and click into the box and it will automatically highlight the entire block of code for you. Now you need to copy that code and paste it into notepad or into a MS Word document. Save it as you’ll need to use it later.

Google Analytics Blogger Step 5

After you click on the “continue >>” button you will be taken to your brand new Google Analytics dashboard! You will see your blogger blog listed but with no analytical data….yet.

Google Analytics Blogger Dashboard

Ok, now you are done with setting up your Google Analytics account. The next step is placing the tracking code into your Blogger template so it can report back to Google Analytics and provide you with some cool data points.
Step #2 - Adding GA Tracking Code to Your Blogger Template

This is not a very difficult step even if you are afraid to touch your template code. Login to your Blogger account and then click on the “Layout” => “Edit HTML” tabs. This will bring you to the template code. Before you make any changes, I advice you to back up your template just in case there are any problems. After you’ve done so, continue reading.

Now in the edit template html code window, scroll all the way to the bottom of your template code and look for the tag. There should only be one of these closing tags in your template. If you can’t find it then your template wasn’t properly created and you should add one right above the tag.The tag should always be your last line of code in your template. It signifies the end of your template.

Ok, now go back to the code you saved before in a Word Doc from Google Analytics. You are going to copy it and paste it right above the tag as illustrated in the image below. The yellow highlighted code is the new GA code I just pasted into my template.

blogger google analytics code 2

Save your template and you shouldn’t get any error messages. If you do, it’s most likely not related to this GA code and something else with your template itself. Assuming you’ve been successful with your save, you are all done embedding the GA code in your template!
Step #3 - Confirm Google Analytics is Tracking

Go back into your Google Analytics account and look at your dashboard. Most likely you will see a little yellow exclamation mark under the “status” column that looks like this: google analytics tracking not installed. This means everything isn’t working properly yet which is fine because we are about to tell GA we just added the code. From your dashboard, click on the “edit” link which is located to the far right.

Google Analytics Blogger Dashboard Edit

After you click on that link, you’ll see another screen like below. It will say “Tracking Not Installed” followed by a link “Check Status”. You’ll want to go ahead and click on that link which will tell GA to visit your site and look for the new code you just pasted in your template.

Google Analytics Blogger Dashboard Check Code

Assuming you pasted the code in there as instructed above, GA will find the new code and begin tracking everything on your blog. If you are still having problems, it’s most likely something to do with GA and you should read their help guide to troubleshoot your problem.

Google Analytics Blogger Dashboard Success

The message seen here, “Waiting for Data” means you have correctly setup GA and data is being gathered! Click on the top left Google Analytics logo and it will take you back to your dashboard. From there click on the “View report” link and that’s where all your very important Blogger visitor data will start appearing!

Google Analytics Blogger Dashboard Results

Now it usually takes an hour or so before you will see any data (maybe longer if you don’t get much traffic to your blog) so please be patient. Trust me, you’ll be logging in at least once a day just to see how much traffic your blog is getting. It’s very addicting and powerful information to learn from. You’ll be surprised which posts are your most popular and what countries people are coming from to read your blog.

Google Analytics is very powerful and we have just learned how to install it into your Blogger template. We haven’t even scratched the surface on the features and reporting it can do. For most Bloggers, this will be enough. Data will be collected and you will just review it. Others with more in-depth goals (like selling products or services, creating a sales funnel, etc) will want to spend more time learning GA. Hope you enjoyed the tutorial and don’t blame me for your new found addiction!

This howto is a practical guide without any warranty - it doesn't cover the theoretical backgrounds. There are many ways to set up such a system - this is the way I chose.

1 Preliminary Note

A running (and properly configured) Postfix server is required for this setup.

2 Needed Package

yum -y install altermime

3 Configuration

3.1 Altermime

First we create a system-account for altermime.

useradd -r -c "Postfix Filters" -d /var/spool/filter filter
mkdir /var/spool/filter
chown filter:filter /var/spool/filter
chmod 750 /var/spool/filter

Next we create a script that'll execute altermime.

vi /etc/postfix/disclaimer

It should look like this:


# Localize these.

####### Changed From Original Script #######
####### Changed From Original Script END #######

# Exit codes from

# Clean up when done or when aborting.
trap "rm -f in.$$" 0 1 2 3 15

# Start processing.
cd $INSPECT_DIR || { echo $INSPECT_DIR does not exist; exit

cat >in.$$ || { echo Cannot save mail to file; exit $EX_TEMPFAIL; }

####### Changed From Original Script #######
# obtain From address
from_address=`grep -m 1 "From:" in.$$ | cut -d "<" -f 2 | cut -d ">" -f 1`

if [ `grep -wi ^${from_address}$ ${DISCLAIMER_ADDRESSES}` ]; then
/usr/bin/altermime --input=in.$$ \
--disclaimer=/etc/postfix/disclaimer.txt \
--disclaimer-html=/etc/postfix/disclaimer.txt \
--xheader="X-Copyrighted-Material: Please visit" || \
{ echo Message content rejected; exit $EX_UNAVAILABLE; }
####### Changed From Original Script END #######

$SENDMAIL "$@" exit $?

Afterwards change the group and the rights in order that altermime is allowed to execute the script.
