Customize minimum password length.

This could be useful if security is an issue in your computer. We can force Windows to reject passwords that do not meet a minimum password length. To set this up follow this steps :

  1. Click Start > Run > type ‘ regedit ‘ to open your Registry Editor.
  2. Find this key from right pane:



  1. If the ‘ Network ‘ sub-key does not already exist then create it (right click on ‘ Policies ‘ choose New and then Key, named it Network.
  2. Create a new binary value named 'MinPwdLen', and set the data to the minimum number of characters required for a password to be accepted.

This does not apply to existing passwords, only new or changed. Don’t forget to backup your registry before make some changes.

Googling ebook.

This tip for education only not for something bad like piracy, I got this tip from a friend and I’m going to share with you too. Prepare your hardisk for some ebook. If you like the ebook then buy it blogger, don’t be a criminal.

Prepare your Google search engine.

Put this string in search box:

‘ -inurl:htm -inurl:html intitle:"index of" +("/ebooks"|"/book") +(chm|pdf|zip) ‘

Hit search button.

The -inurl htm and -inul html is attempting to get rid of regular webpages and show just index pages. Looking for index of in the title is doing the same. Using the pipe ( | ) tells google to look for something OR something else. Here we are telling Google to look for book or ebook directories... and we have listed several common ebook formats (zip, pdf, chf).
