Want some specific pages from google books? sneak in…

May be you want some of the pages from a preview from Google Books. Yup, you have come to the right place. There are so many posts in the internet about how to download books from Google books. But they all are about downloading the whole book. But what if you need some of the pages for your tomorrow’s exam? Then there is no solution. Since I have faced the same problem, I have come up with a solution. The process is a little bit tricky though. But rather than downloading the whole book with tedious techniques, I think it is worth a try.

Prerequisites:

You would need Firefox & an add-on Image Download II. Sorry for not discussing Chrome, But when you understand the process, you can apply this for your favorite browser too.

The cheating:

Step 1: Go to the preview of the book. Go through 3 pages at a time. Wait until the pages load. Why? Will answer it later on.

Step 2: If you have installed the add-on there is a button of the add-on somewhere in your address bar. Hit it & save in a directory in your hard disk drive you want to save. Give the images a unique & sequential number. So that you can easily recognize them.

Step 3: Repeat the steps for the pages you need.

Finally as now you have the pages, you can read them from there. You can also make a pdf from them if you want to print or easy handling. User Foxit Phantom or chose any of these online tools.

Answer to the question: Google Books render only 3 pages at a time. So you have to do this for every 3 pages.

How to format a write-protected/raw format flash drive

flash driveRecently many people are having problems with their flash drives while they are becoming write-protected & the file format raw. May be the problem is due to a virus. But the problem is a severe one. Few days ago flash drives had some tiny button for write-protection & withdraw them. But now-a-days they don’t have one. So it’s a very big problem if it doesn’t have such button. Some manufacturers like Transcend or Apacer provide their own tool to format such flash drives. But user of flash drives from other manufacturers face serious problem in formatting such flash drives. Recently got a flash drive from a friend that got write-protected & was in raw format. Manufacturer of the flash drive was Wintec Filemate. Seems I have searched the whole internet & could not find a cure. I mailed them & they replied me to ship the flash drive back to them so that they can replace the drive. How funny! I can buy a whole new flash drive with the expense of shipping that flash drive. That’s my story & thanks for reading it. Enough of the shits. Let’s talk business.

How to format:

Generally when manufacturers develop any tool, they ensure that the hardware the tool would be working on is their product. Found a online recovery tool from Transcend that doesn’t do that. As it is online, it still doesn’t. Don’t know it will work for indefinite time or not. You can download the tool from this link. Extract it & format your pendrive. Even it has option for recovery of data. the tool worked well for me. Let me know if it worked for you.

All hail altruism.

Using MySQL with SQL Developer

MySQL can be used by SQL Developer provided by Oracle. It is free & can be downloaded from- http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/database/sql_developer/index.html. There is no any default driver for MySQL in Oracle. For this you have to download JDBC connector for MySQL. Download it from- http://www.mysql.com/products/connector/j/

Extract the file & place into a directory you wish.

Now start SQL Developer and click on the Tools>Preferences. It is like the image given below-

Click on the Add Entry button, navigate to the directory of the downloaded connector JAR file & select it.

Select MySQL from the database options & choose the database you want to work with. AND it is done!

 

But remember, if your user in the MySQL have no password or null, it will not be accepted in SQL developer. Give some damn password & it will work fine.

Solution to Yahoo! mail reactivation problem

I think a lot of guys had problem while reactivating yahoo! mail account while logging in after a long time. When you give your email address & password and hit sign in, the webpage redirects itself to something like https://mc1610.mail.yahoo.com/reactivate?farm= . After some time the page simply times out. After googling endless times I could not find out any solution. After trying some alternatives, I have come out with a solution. Wanna hear it? It’s very simple. Just remove the s from the last of https:// & hit enter. Bazinga! You’ve done it!

Note: The s stands for a secure connection. As it needs money to give this service, i’m willing to think yahoo! doesn’t want to spend money for securing the free services. That’s why a child investment of themselves alibaba is now willing to buy them.

Solving Typing Master Satellite unhandled error problem.

kboost error

While trying to run satellite at windows 7, sometimes an error shows telling “Program quits, Unhandled Error occurred Access violation at address 0045596B in module ‘KBOOST.EXE. Read of address 00000004”. I was trying to get a solution of the problem from typing master forum, but as far I’ve seen they are not giving any solution for this. So far I’ve seen most of the people using Typing master 7, are using cracked version like me. So they haven’t any way to ask for solution to Typing master. I’ve found a solution of the problem. Just follow the easy steps written below & get rid of the problem.

Step 1:
Go to C:/ (or the drive you have installed windows 7) > Program files (In 64bit version, it may be “Program files (x86)”) > Typing master. Then find the file named “KBoost.exe”. It is the exe file of the satellite. Right click on the file & find compatibility tab. This would look like this:
compatibility

Step 2:
Click on the checkbox “Run this program in compatibility mode for:” & set windows XP (Service Pack 3). Then click on the checkbox “Run this program as an administrator”. Click Apply & then OK. And we are done.
Again try to launch satellite & I think this time it will launch with no error. 🙂
