New Facebook’s Graph Search

As we all know facebook has introduced new Facebook’s Graph Search few months ago, its certainly going to give you some new user experience. Everybody have their own view regarding FB Graph Search. If you’ve gotten a peek at Facebook’s Graph Search but don’t like the way it looks, you can get rid of it using a really simple trick. Here’s what you need to do.

This won’t stop other people from finding you via Graph Search, but if you just don’t like that bar at the top of your screen—or you think the old search was more useful—it’s easy to get rid of. Graph Search is only available in English in the US right now, so changing your language settings can bring back the old search behavior. To do this, just:

  1. Head to your Facebook Account Settings and scroll down to Language.
  2. Click the Edit button and change your language to something like English (UK) or English (Pirate).
  3. Click Save Changes.

When you’re done, you should find that the old search has returned.

Note: This tweak won’t last forever, of course. Eventually, everyone will switch over to Graph Search and you won’t have any say in the matter, but at least this can help you hold out until that happens..

Why can’t we create a folder named CON in Windows???

Nobody can create a FOLDER anywhere on the computer which can be named as “CON”.
This is something pretty cool…and unbelievable… At Microsoft the whole Team, including Bill Gates, couldn’t answer why this happened at first!

TRY IT NOW !!
In MS-DOS, several special “device files” were available to aid in performing certain tasks, such as clearing the screen or deleting extraneous output from a program. In order to maintain backwards-compatibility, all versions of Windows up to and including Windows 7 will refuse to allow you to create a file with these “reserved” device file names. The following file names are reserved:

CON
CON, incidentally, was a device file used to capture whatever was printed onscreen.

let me tell you a small secret you can’t even create a folder named PRN, AUX, NUL and many others like..

PRN
AUX
NUL
COM1
COM2
COM3
COM4
COM5
COM6
COM7
COM8
COM9
LPT1
LPT2
LPT3
LPT4
LPT5
LPT6
LPT7
LPT8
LPT9

If you try creating a folder with any of these names, the name automatically changes back to the default “New Folder”. And this is what has caused the confusion. Instead of automatically renaming the folder, had an explanatory warning message popped up.

You can actually create a folder named CON !!
There is actually a way to create a folder named CON, or any other name from the above list of reserved keywords. This can be done through command prompt. But it is advisable not to do so, as it might result in your system becoming unstable.

Download Videos from Facebook without any Software!!

Ever charmed by a video that your friend shared, wish we could save it in our computer as we watch in the Facebook site itself. One can download or save any video from Facebook without any software or browser plugin (we will shortly feature about that as well). Everything you do in web is cached that means the Facebook video you watch is saved in cache folder on your computer.

Here we are going thru some simple steps to save videos embedded in Facebook. Whatever browser you use, first you need to watch the full length video (which is equivalent of saving the video on your computer’s temporary folder called cache) then move forward.

For Internet explorer Browser:

1.Did you finished watching the full video? good. Go to the Tools > Internet Options > Settings > View Files (this process works on all version of Windows XP, Vista & 7)

2. You will get a large size file with long name and unknown type there which we assume to be a video file.

3. Just copy and paste that file at desktop.

4. Since this video file is in flv format, you need to rename it with flv extension (longnameofthevideo.flv)

5. Yes, you are done. But remember to show hidden files and folders from the Folder Option menus, also enable show extensions if you have doubts on locating exact file. Maybe you will need a codec (FLV) if you don’t have previously installed, get it as a complete package from K-lite.

For Firefox Browser:

Assumed that you watched the video, now explore the path to your System drive.

D:(or C:)> Documents and Settings> ADMIN (your Admin login)> Local Settings >Application Data> Mozilla> Firefox > Profiles (one by one) for Win XP

OR

C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles for Vista & Win 7

OR

C:\Documents and Settings\Name\Local Settings\Application Data

Find and play video after discovering it.

We know it is a bit tedious job, but there is safety of not using any 3rd party tools or software while downloading video files. This approach applies to any videos of YouTube as well (but you need to go into the right folder)
