Catch Someone Accessing Your Facebook Account

No comments
While I was in Singapore, I noticed lot of people from there are hooked with Facebook more than in my country. Of-course this is not surprising considering their awareness level on technology. They can access social networks almost everywhere but come to think of it such convenience has its disadvantages. If your always online, you won't even notice if someone else is accessing your account. It also a venue for hackers to access your account just like that. To help you detect if any other person is secretly logging into your Facebook Account, use the built-in Account Security of Facebook. How? enable the alerts from Account -> Account Settings -> Account Security



Depending on your available contact info, Facebook can alert you via email or by SMS. Also from the same page, you will be able to see the most recent activity of your account. Info such as When it was accessed? device type? and location of the user are available.

Automatically Download Email Attachments From Your Mailbox

At my day job, we have an email address that receives pre-formatted messages from our clients. We process all attachments from each email everyday. We do this manually by opening each one of them which takes time and requires a dedicated manpower. That was before until we found out about Email Attachment Downloader, a free utility that offers automated downloading of attachments from multiple email services including Gmail, Yahoo Mail, AOL, Hotmail, and others that supports POP/IMAP protocols. You can setup a various filters to specify what you want to download. For example, you can set it to download attachments by extensions. It also supports scheduling so it can sit on your system tray and run itself either daily, hourly or a custom time you specify.

Store Website Link Where You Can Access Anytime On Any Device With Kippt

No comments
Before when I stumbled upon an interesting website which I want to save for later reading, I send it to my email. Whenever I want to access the link again, all I need is to open my mailbox. One thing that makes this approach ugly is it clutters my mailbox and I end up deleting them to make my mailbox organize. Fortunately there is an easier way to store links for later use and it is called Kippt, a website tool that was created to share links between devices and friends. You can quickly access Kippt practically on any internet-enabled device such as PC, iPhone, iPod, iPad, Android and etc.

How To Set An Android Device To Use A Static IP In WIFI Connection

No comments
Here is a followup post on my newly acquired Android device. At the office, I tried to connect it to our WIFI connection. It got connected with no problem but when I started browsing, the page won't appear. Immediately I already know the problem, I have to set the browse to use a proxy server. Unfortunately for me, Android browser does not have such settings (at least for Android 1.6). So after searching for answer, I found an alternative one. Instead of using a DHCP dynamic IP, I have to use a Static IP that is outside the firewall so the browse won't need a proxy to be able to browse. Here is the demonstration video.

Virtual PC 2007 Issue On Windows 7 64-Bit: Can Not Boot From CD Drive

No comments
This morning, two of my officemates were having a problem installing Windows XP on a Virtual PC image. The host operating system is Windows 7 and the version of Virtual PC is 2007. The CD installer was already inserted and can be detected by the Virtual PC but when started to boot on DOS/BIOS, it cannot automatically run the Windows XP installer. The solution? - run Virtual PC in Administrator mode. Virtual PC 2007 needs to be run as Administrator to be able to access DVDs which not the case with CD drives because you can still access CDs on CD drives even your not running as administrator mode (I haven't tested this claim since I have no CD drive available).

Also take note that once your running as Administrator, before running the Virtual Image, go to Settings once and save it . I don't know the logic on this but I had to do it to make the DVD bootable.
