How to increase the number of downloads in Firefox

2007-09-25 02:31 PM Savvy? -

Any standard web browser supports only 2 downloads at one time per one server. Firefox also does the same. As a result, you will not be able to download more than 2 files at once in Firefox’s download manager.

A minor tweak to Firefox’s configuration allows you to configure this number as per your requirement.

Type “about:config” (with out quotes) in Firefox’s address bar.

Firefox will display a big list of configurable values in a grid. In the Filter box of this grid, type network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server.

By default this will have a value of “2″. Change this number to your custom number as shown below.

Copy files faster than ever in your PC (Windows Only)

2007-09-19 01:45 PM Savvy? -

Everyone must have gone through atleast once through this pain. "Copying large volumes of files". Nothing can test our patience than doing this tedious task and waiting for long hours and late nights to do backups. The default copy program in windows is bit slower because of the buffer usage algorithm doesn’t care about the volume of the files or the size. It just copies the files in a single thread and pre-defined buffer for any scenario.

TeraCopy is a nifty small copy handler for Windows XP/Vista, which does a smart job of making the copy jobs much more faster and reliable.

A Free copy for Home users can be downloaded from HERE

Lets look at the cool features at a glance…

  • It uses dynamically adjusted buffers to reduce seek times in file copy operations. It also does asynchronous copy between two different hard disks to make it more faster.
  • Pause and Resume file copy process anytime
  • Does not terminate the whole copy job for any error in reading files
  • Tracks the failed copy transactions
  • Completely integrates with Windows Shell and replaces the original boring copy dialog.

Sounds cool huh ?  :-)

Play Safe with any EULA

2007-09-01 09:02 AM Savvy? -

EULA is probably the most commonly used piece of software products in this world. It is also the least visited, read, or used part of any software release. If this sounds like greek to you, you better know few things about EULA.

Any legal software in this world will bound to a legal software license agreement called EULA. This is nothing but End User License Agreement. This agreement is shown typically at the time of installation or first use of the software in web or desktop systems. Once the end user agrees to EULA of any software, it is assumed that he/she is well aware of the software’s behavior or side effects. So it is very important for us to read and understand the so-called EULAs. Since EULAs are made off with legal terminology, nobody really cares to read at all.

But now you can analyze any EULA quickly with EULAlyzer which will make sure there are no hidden agreements for malwares or other weird access agreements to your system.


Download EULAlyzer from Download.com

EULAlyzer comes with the following features…

  • Discover potentially hidden behavior about the software you’re going to install
  • Pick up on things you missed when reading license agreements
  • Keep a saved database of the license agreements you view
  • Instant results - super-fast analysis in just a second

Shameless Skype Software Horror (SSSH….)

2007-08-21 08:40 AM Savvy? -

16th August : Skype is down…and everyone are panic. The world of communication is not fallen or AT & T, Virgin did not lost their satellites..but skype has got crashed data servers and the world is panic.

16th August : As a usual routine, the major OS vendor, Microsoft has issued critical security patches to their operating systems Windows XP and Windows Vista worldwide. These patches are available as part of Windows Update (which can be configured not to download updates automatically by any user) worldwide. The criticality of these patches also demands a safe restart of the operating system to make sure it is secured from any malicious attacks. Every machine in this world which has been updated using windows update was restarted….

What happend to skype?

Now the funniest thing that could ever happened to a software which was made with no idea of disaster scenarios comes in to picture. The massive restart of windows machines all over the world has apparently brought down skype servers and caused a big disaster. To my understanding , Skype does closes the connections and commits the calls in shutdown process. Massive start of windows machines (skype is not sure how many ….), it has got massive log-in  requests which are enough to give their servers a sleeping pill.

Who is the culprit ?

My vote goes to Skype. Hats-off to their product engineering which has never taken such a scenario of disaster. I am wondering what the hell their testing team doing with load testing? Do they test skype servers with a 500 simultaneous login transactions? How could anyone blame someone with so much of irresponsibility at their own house? This is funnier than fun.

Windows update restarted many machines and all the other IM networks survived including AIM, MSN, Yahoo and Google and why not skype? Does skype is going to disable the auto sign-in feature in future? :-) are the questions now…

IT3 ?? How is it new?

2007-07-21 06:06 AM vbsowmya - sowmyawrites .... » TechExperiences

                   I was just randomly surfing a list of publications on IIIT’s site here.  Here, I found a report titled - “A simple approach to build transliteration editors for Indian languages” by Prahallad et.al., published in

Journal of Zhejiang University Science,

in october 2005.  I was just flipping through the pages, when I noticed something, which surprisingly, I never heard before.  Now… opening the drama: :)

Till now, whatever transliteration schems I knew were somethings like - RTS, ITrans etc and the Inscript keyboard layout. But, there actually is something called IT3 transliteration scheme, developed by our own IISc, Bangalore and CMU(Carnegie Mellon University) together.  Let me put here a brief few line excerpt from it :

“There are many transliteration schemes such as ITRANS to key-in the Indian language scripts. The focus of these schemes was mainly to represent the Indian language scripts and paid less attention on the importance of user-readability aspect. IT3 is a transliteration scheme developed by IISc, Bangalore, India and Carnegie Mellon University with the primary focus on user readability of the transliteration scheme (gajapatiraju et.al. 2005)”

The authors claim:

1. It is case-insensitive

2. This scheme is phonetic in nature, the characters correspond to the actual sound that is being spoken. Thus a single transliteration scheme can be used for all Indian languages as  they share same sounds.

3. Each character should not be more than 3 letter length

4. Minimal use of punctuation marks in typing a character.

- What is still un-understandable to me is, the well-known Rice Transliteration Scheme satisfies most of the needs and features mentioned above. The mappings provided in the paper also were similar. So, where is the need for IT3? Why was there no mention of Inscript, which was there since long? Why was Rice Transliteration Scheme not mentioned at all? Does it mean they were not aware of RTS? But RTS is around since, perhaps early 90s! Why was there only a passing mention of ITrans when even it was in existance since pretty long time…?  Everything appears a doubt to me now!

The thing is - Such tools should have come by 2005 as far as I can guess. Why? online version of Padma must have been there in 2005! (Correct me if I am wrong). So, what is the need to devise a new IT3 scheme is my question. And … another doubt is: What happened to it after that?  Whatever it was, I was kind of amused seeing this paper now, when there are so many online transliterators for Indian languages, some of which I listed here some time back. Anyways, thinking of it in another way - there were people in Universities, working on this, then.

The paper which made me write this post can be accessed here. If you are patient enough, read through :)

పని జరగలేదు శ్రీధర గారు. నా కంప్యూటర్ లొ చాలా అక్కరేని ఫైళ్ళు ఉన్నాయి వాటిని తొలగించడం అవడం లేదు. మీరు చెప్పిన మృదులాయంత్రం కుడా ప్రయత్నించాను దానితో పని జరగలేదు. ముఖ్యంగా ఆఫైళ్ళ C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings లో ఉన్నాయి.

శ్రీధర్ గారు! వీడియోలు వున్న బ్లాగు చూశాను. కాని డైయల్ అప్ కనెక్షన్ వున్న మాలాంటి వారి పరిస్థితి ఏంటి? సులువుగా తెలుసుకోలేమా! వీడియో కి చాలా సమయం పడుతుంది. లేకపోతే ఒక్కోసారి హేంగ్ అయిపోతుంది. దీని గురించి పరిష్కారం ఆలోచించండి.

shutting down the system in that manner will corrupt the system and it may not boot up the next time. Better way is to open the task manager and kill off the processes in that. That way the damage will be localized.
