This post is a quick one and will not be so long. Since this morning, Skype has been running really really slow and on top on that, it is consuming 300+ K of RAM memory together with a HUUGGE amount of CPU !! Searching around the web got me some solutions that I hesitated to try until I finally settled for that that worked. Did you experience same and want to trouble shoot? It’s after the break;
Have you ever thought of the possibility accessing your files from anywhere without having to fear about losing your thumbdrive or any other removable data? Most of you already know about it (the possibility); but do not know how to achieve that, while others do not do it in the right way. Well, some upload it to a file sharing site and note down the link and so, when they need the file, they download it and use it. Others save it as a draft email as an attachment and again download it when they need it. Ya ! I agree, these can be done, but it is not the right way, file sharing sites have filesize, speed and download limits while mail attachments have filesize limits (~25MB/file). There exist on the Web, a service that enables you to have a ‘virtual folder’, where you can keep files and access them from everywhere, even from a smartphone. Here’s a guide about how to use these services.
Ever thought of hiding files? Everybody did ! But everybody has his/her own way of hiding stuffs including computer files. Some use hidden folders (and forget the location of the folders sometimes 😛 ), some lock the up on online storage sites or others simply burn the files on a disk or copy the files on a removable drive and hide them physically in some drawer or safe. But there exist a James Bond technique for those geeky users on the Web; that’s of hiding the files in images. This post is a quick guide about how to do it.

In fact, it was not the first time I heard about it, I once read about the possibility of logging in to Skype with Windows Live credentials; so, I gave it a try and it worked. How much it worked? Pros and Cons? That’s what’s this post is all about..
