Turn Your Old Computer Into A Brand New Hookah


Got an old computer which you just don't wanna use? Well, it would be best if you threw it away or maybe earn half a dollar by selling it as scrap...OR how about i give you an even better idea? How about turning your old computer into a brand new Hookah?  With a little bit of effort you can turn that old gadget into some peculiar-looking smoking paraphernalia like this....

Turn your old PC into a brand new Hookah!
Now really interested in having one yourself? Well it is very easy and won't cost you anything. Just follow the 7 steps below and enjoy. (To view each step in detail, click on the image) 
 Hours of work to reclaim

Here's the first reclaimed material for the project...My grandfather gave us some acrylic 30+ years ago (not an exaggeration) from the steel mill he use to work at.  Researching similar topics online seemed like no one had hope, claiming it'll crack when I try to work with it, I'll never get the paper off, etc... It did take HOURS of scrubbing, the best thing I found …
 CD drive bowl slider
The bowl piece in which the tobacco is smoked, is mounted in/on top of a gutted cd rom drive...This drive in particular is from 1998, and was pulled out as a spare long ago from another computer that came and went, I'm assuming due to something mechanical broken, the cd drive never stays closed...So I thought it would be a good fit for this project, when the computer
 A new paintjob
The old case was a pretty busted black, and just wasn't going to fit with it's new hip purpose.  I chose colors that would really bounce, with some inspiration coming from the Caterpillar of Alice in Wonderland.
 More cosmetics
With the new acrylic sides and flashy paint job, I went on a whim decision and thought I would try my hand at engraving acrylic for the first time.  Most people seem to use their rotary tool, but I just so happen to have a pencil engraver at my disposal from my dad.  Honestly I think it was much easier to use than my Dremel would have been, the Dremel seems to have a "…

I had planned to use some bubble stones in the resevoir of the hookah for a nice bubble effect.  I used a standard air pump from an old aquarium setup and tapped into the AC outlet inside of the power supply while I was painting it.  The same method is used in the computer aquarium that was entered in to the Dead Computer Contest here, this was my plan all along but he…
 The reservoir
I made an acrylic box, also with 30+ year old acrylic but of 3/4".  The box is 5.75" tall, 6" deep, and a little over 12" long, the size fills up most of the remaining space inside the case.  The reservoir was glued together using JB Weld acrylic glue, and clamped together overnight.  The lid is a separate piece of acrylic that sits on top.  I drilled a hole in each co…
 Finale!
It took a solid three days for me to complete this project.  Everyone is really wowed when I show them, but in all honesty, nothing was incredibly difficult.   The project as a whole is something you kind of have to calculate on the go.  Looking on the finished project now there is more I'd like to add and change as with any good project, but the YaHookah has been a co…

Every Computer Needs Anti Virus Software

There are a few things in life that everyone simply needs. I’l be the first to agree that we use the word “need” far too often when really we are probably wanting something rather than truly needing it. I believe strongly that everyone needs clean water, adequate food, proper medical care and a safe place to live and sleep. I will not say, however, that everyone in the world needs to drive an expensive sports car or go on vacation four times a year. As an internet design specialist, I must say that everyone who owns a computer must have anti virus software.

There is no question about it: anti virus software is a must for an internet using computer in the world. Why? Simply put, because far too many people have taken pleasure in or made a job out of messing up the security of the internet. Far too many people think that placing a virus over the internet that will effectively destroy many computers and programs is a comical thing. And this is why anti virus software is a must for all computer owners.

Anti virus software exists to combat the evil people who are at work to bring a nasty virus to your computer. A virus can come through a variety of ways and many that are seemingly innocent and unsuspecting. So anti virus software must work very hard to bring the level of protection that is necessary to personal and public computers of all kinds.

If you are unsure about where or how to get the right anti virus software for you, then talk with a friend who knows about computers or visit a store that specializes in computers and internet security. Talk through your options and do a little research to see exactly what you’re getting for any kind of anti virus software. Make sure you choose anti virus software that will be effective in destroying the things you need destroyed.

You will never be fully safe to browse the internet or to use a computer until it is protected by strong anti virus software. So take some time, use some money and get your computer protected by good anti virus software. You will not see any effects of the software on your computer. Keep in mind that this is exactly the point: your anti virus software will keep you from having any problems or disfunctions with your computer and you’ll be able to get back to work or to play hassle free on the computer.

Accessory Computer

A home away from home is a great thing, so why not have an office away from the office too?The spare room or a quiet corner can be a perfect place for productivity. To outfit your workspace, you might need to invest in some new hardware like a second computer, a bigger monitor or a high-quality printer. Once you’ve got your home computer set-up, you’ll need to connect it to the Internet or network it to other computers and peripherals in the house. With a good grasp of the facts and a firm idea of your work habits, you’ll be ready to make sensible choices for your home-made office.

• The Computer. Not everyone needs the same level of performance in a home office computer. You might use your computer primarily for word processing and email which requires little processing power. On the other hand, you may want more power to run database analysis, large spreadsheets or graphics applications. The type of work you do and your work load will determine whether you need a computer with a lot of brawn or just a little.

• Processor. A computer’s processor or central processing Unit (CPU) is the engine that powers the device. The speed of the processor is called the clock speed which measures how fast the processor can carry out instructions. Speed is measured in MegaHertz (MHz) and is one measure of a computer’s power. A typical home office Windows PC should have at minimum a 500 MHz processor. A power user would probably prefer 800 MHz or higher. If you know your computing needs are modest, and you want to save some money, an older machine with a slower processor is worth considering. When looking at an Apple Macintosh, keep in mind that you can’t simply compare processor speeds with Windows machines, as the two types of computers have different system designs. Macs generally have lower processor speeds in MHz but don’t let that fool you. Newer Macs like the iMac can definitely keep pace with PCs.

• Random Access Memory (RAM). When the computer is turned on, RAM is used to hold the operating system, applications and data that you’re currently running. Information in RAM is rapidly available to the processor. When RAM fills up, the computer slows down because it now has to retrieve information from the slower hard drive. Imagine documents on your desk in front of you, readily at hand when you need them. But when your desktop is full, you have to file and retrieve documents elsewhere, which takes more time. The amount of RAM you need is influenced by the type of applications you use. Graphics programs like Adobe PhotoShop or Illustrator use a fair bit of memory. Word processing and spreadsheet programs use somewhat less memory. Users who like to multi-task and prefer having multiple applications running simultaneously will definitely want plenty of memory. More memory gives you a larger “workspace” and makes your computer perform faster with fewer glitches. A typical user needs at least 64 MB of RAM with 128 MB becoming the norm. In virtually all computers, you can expand the memory as you need more.

• Hard Drive. This is the computer’s filing cabinet where all your applications and data are permanently stored. Most users can fit many years of productivity into a 6 to 10 GB hard drive. If you need to store a lot of information like several years of business records or image catalogues, then you may want a more spacious hard drive. Luckily, a bigger hard drive won’t cost you that much extra. Alternately, you could invest in a removable storage drive.

• Expansion. It never hurts to get a system with room to grow, especially if you foresee your home office needs evolving. Find out how many RAM slots a system has and what the maximum amount of RAM is. Adding expansion cards to your system for 3D graphics or ethernet will increase the functionality of your computer. Look for a system with two or three free expansion slots and room for additional disk drives.

Computer Slow Down !!– Registry Cleaning

Microsoft Windows based computer will gradually slow down from time to time. The biggest issues are caused by registry growing. Registry growth is unavoidable because of:

1. Uninstalled programs don’t clean up the registry.
2. Too many information stored in the registry instead of database.
3. Temporary information not cleans up.
4. Too many programs installed.

Window Registry was first introduced in Windows 95, it was design to replace the old .ini file, which allows not just 2 levels of grouping in settings, but unlimited levels of tree settings! Microsoft likes complexity, they think of simplicity as outdated technology, which still widely use in other operating system, like UNIX and Linux.

Because of the Advance technology, windows’ user has to upgrade their computer to process the registry information! And this is bad news for me, because I am just like others, cannot afford to upgrade the
computer every single year! The cheapest way is to do regular maintenance on registry.

Until .NET platform become popular (3/5 years down the road), we still need to rely on this bad design architecture, and we have learn how to live with it – Use some registry cleaning tools.

I remember my first registry cleaner was from Norton utility. That was the old days where Norton utility was the only few proper tuning tools for windows! Nowadays we have over hundreds types of registry cleaning tools; some are pure registry cleaner, some are subset of a larger toolset.

I prefer to use more professional registry cleaner, larger toolset doesn’t provides a very effective cleaning. The ideally best registry cleaning tool must be able to identified unwanted registry entry, safely remove identified items and able to optimize and compress the registry to its’ minimum!

If your personal computer is slowing down, first thing you should do is to uninstall all unused, unnecessary and unwanted software from your operating system, try to keep your window software as less as possible (Not to say you can’t have more), and focus on the tools that you really need.

Secondly, you should use one or few proper registry cleaning tools to tidy up the registry, eliminates all unused settings, information in the window registry, but remember to backup the registry first! Most registry cleaning tool will provides backup function for restore, if the cleaning “too much” and cause unstable behavior to the software or window operating system.

Never, ever use a registry cleaner without backup function! (Unless you want to backup manually every time before cleaning)

After cleaning up the window registry, you should restore 30% or more of your computer performance. If you still feel that the system is slow, you might be infected by virus or spyware, scan your computer with Anti Virus and Anti Spyware Software.

If you want to regain more speed, better startup and shutdown, free up your memory and unleash the power of your window, you should visit my web site for more information and tools on how to speed up your slow computer.

Hard Disk Failure


hard-disk-head-crash,

Dear SmartHide Community,
I would like to apologize for everything that happened and for every problems you’ve had during last 48 hours. We have faced a very big problem that we could not predict – a Hard Disk Drive on our main server had crashed. This server serves as a webserver for our Websites, Databases, Forum, as well as for authorization purposes.

We had iWeb Datacenter technicians provide us with the new HDD and yesterday we finally got it up and running. As it was a new setup – we had to restore all the backups for Webserver, E-mail accounts, DNS settings, MYSQL databases of everything, etc, etc. It took a bunch of time as well.
At the moment we are waiting for our DNS settings to propagate all over the world so all our webresources could be accessible around the Globe.

At this time our technicians solved most of the technical problems and those of you who still have authorization or Login problems with SmartHide software – please create a ticket or email me directly to danny (at) smarthide.com with your SmartHide Login. I will make sure your issue is resolved.
I would like to ask for appology from each and everyone of you for this downtime. As one of our clients mentioned  – “things happen”. It will be a good lesson for us in order to prevent any possible incidents in the future.

Thank you all for understanding and patience and thank you for staying with us!

How do I determine if I have a 32 or 64 bit operating system?


It’s good to know what kind of operating system (OS) you have on your computer, that way you’ll be able to download the appropriate kinds of drivers and programs that work best with your configuration. So, how about a tip within a tip for this one? Not only are you going to find out which type of operating system you currently have, but I’ll even show you a quick way to get there!
For Windows XP users – Hold the Windows Key, and then press the Pause Key, which is located two keys to the right of the Print Screen key. As if by some form of electronic magic, the system properties window springs to life! I know, I went a little loopy right there, but I just discovered this trick myself, so I’m giddy! This window shows all of the basic info about your computer like how much RAM you have and what-not, but it also can tell you what OS you’re running. If it doesn’t specifically say Windows XP x64 Edition, then you’re running a 32 bit operating system.

image

For Windows Vista users
– Same drill here: press and hold the Windows Key and then hit the Pause Key. Up comes the system properties window and you’ll notice a specific field that says “System Type”, which has your OS type listed after it. Vista will actually tell you 32 bit or 64 bit.

And there you have it!

Restore Quick Launch in Windows 7


One thing I noticed that was missing from Windows 7 was the Quick Launch bar; that little area on the task bar where you could store shortcuts for easy access. Well, today we’re going to learn how to get it back. It’s real easy, too!
Right-Click your task bar and select Toolbars>New toolbar… Copy and paste this text into the box next to “Folder:” at the bottom.

%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

Now press the “Select Folder” button.


image

After that, the area next to your clock should look a little like this.


image

It says “Quick Launch”, but it sure doesn’t look like what we’re used to, does it? To fix it, Right-click it and remove the check mark next to “Lock the taskbar”. Now Right-click the Quick Launch again and remove the checks next to “Show Text” and “Show Title”. Now all you have to do is drag that dotted line out a bit to expose the icons and Right-click one more time to put a check back next to “Lock the Taskbar”. You’re all set!


image

To remove the Quick Launch you just created, Right-click on your Taskbar and under Toolbars, uncheck Quick Launch. It’s that easy!
