Unplug Add - on

eeding a quick and easy way to download videos in Firefox?  Now you can with the Unplug extension.
Post Installation
Once you have installed the extension and restarted Firefox, you will see this message window regarding the Toolbar Button. Nothing to worry about though…
Options for Unplug
A good place to start with Unplug is with a quick look at the options. In the General Options tab, you can choose how to access Unplug (i.e. the Tools Menu), whether to submit statistical information on websites downloaded from (this is deselected by default to respect your privacy), and see the location of the Rules File.
The Downloader tab lets you choose between “Automatic”, “Save As”, and “ Open Over Current Window” for download style. It also lists supported downloading extensions that Unplug works with, so if one of these is a favorite of yours then that is even sweeter!
In the Advanced tab, you can choose to show results that do not work correctly if you are looking for a complete listing each time you download a video.
Unplug in Action
Once you have Unplug set up to suit your needs, then it is time to have fun downloading. For our example we chose a fan-made Green Lantern movie trailer at YouTube and have set up the Toolbar Button. To download a video, select from one of the following three actions:
  • Click on the Toolbar Button
  • Go to the Tools Menu and select “Unplug”
  • Right click inside the main browser window and select “Unplug”
You will see the following window once Unplug opens. Notice that there are different levels of video quality listed to choose from (terrific!). To start downloading, simply use the drop down menu and select “Save as”.
Once you have clicked on “Save as”, select your download location and rename the file if you so desire. The video shown above had the following “less than desirable” name, so renaming is a good idea.
If you find yourself downloading videos often, then Unplug can certainly provide an easy access way to do so. Before you know it, that “little green fish” will be your best friend!
Download the Unplug extension (version 2.022)

Google Books Download Now Very Easily

Google Books is a really cool service from Google that has hundreds of thousands of books, magazines and newspapers scanned into digital format. You can access many of the books from free and others you can view portions of.
Unfortunately, there is currently no way to download a copyrighted book from Google Books, you have to view it online. The other annoying thing is that you can’t even print all the pages in the book! You have to go page by page and print them out.

That’s all a pain in the butt. A better way would be to simple download the entire thing from Google and read it on your own in PDF format. Luckily, someone else has thought of this and wrote an application for it.
Google Book Downloader is a free small utility that allows you to save a book as a PDF from Google Books to your local computer.
Here’s how you use the program to get books onto your computer:
Step 1: Go ahead and start up the application and paste in the book code for the book you want to download. This is simply the ID number that you see in the URL when viewing that book:
download google books[5]
Step 2: Once you type in the code, press the Check button and the existence of the book will be verified and all pages will be retrieved.
Step 3: Then press Download entire book and all pages will be downloaded. Note that this can take a bit of time.
google books downloader
Overall, the program works very well and allows you to download the available pages for a copyright book. Note that it will not download the entire book, just the pages that are previewable. Enjoy!

Microsoft's New Morro Download

Microsoft has released its own Antivitus product called as Morro and they call is Microsoft Security Essentials and I decided to give it a try. So the first step I did was to Uninstall the antivirus I have already and reboot my computer. In case you plan to use it, make sure after downloading it, this is firsts tep you follow too.

What is Microsoft Security Essentials ?
  • Its basically an Antivirus Program which protects you against viruses and spyware, including Trojans, worms and other malicious software.
  • It promises of no costs or annoying subscriptions to keep track of.
  • Promised to be Light weight and lot of silence as most of things will be handled by it in background and will not prompt you unless reuired ( We will check this more closely ).
The First look :
Installation was simple and so is the interface. There is not much of options to configured actually. The default settings are more then enough unless you would really get into and find out what more is available.
The first thing it will do is update with latest Anitvirus and spyware definition files.

Morro update definitions of antivirus
Looking at the Settings :
One thing you should realize is that Morro is just an Anti virus and not a whole suite which can configure firewall and Internet securities and other things.  It can provide you
  • Real time protection, scan archive files, create system restore point
  • You can exclude programs and files that can be skipped to be tested by the antivirus.
  • Choose default actions when a virus or spayware is detected.

Morro Settings
My Thoughts :
Morro is pretty light database. Not heavy on system and worth using it. I am pretty sure its scanning capabilities are good but in case I do find something odd, I will let you know.
Like I said its not a complete security pack. Security meaning not only Antivirus but also Internet Security, Filewall security etc. Nod 32 Antivirus had been playing both the roles perfectly.
My Next Move :
  • Running Morro and ESET NOD32 Security Program together to find how it works together.
  • Do some more virus detection test, Manav will be helping me in this.
  • There are couple of more ideas to test this out.
I will let you know more on this.
Morro has a limit of downloads which will be soon exhausted. So if you are seeing this post now just download it now.

How to Measure Bandwith Usage???

It doesn’t matter if you are looking to find out about how much bandwidth you are using to determine if your ISP is charging you fairly, if your net connection is a bottleneck or simply because you are like me and love statistics.
Well we can use this simple bandwidth monitoring tool called Networx. If you are paying for your internet per KB or MB than you can use this application to measure bandwidth usage and shut down your network when you reach a certain level.
So in addition to all the pretty graphs and charts we also get better control over our connection. You can use Networx to see how fast your connection actually is or see how much bandwidth your kids are using downloading MP3’s.
Networx has a installer and a portable edition. I used the portable 767kb file and ran it.
measure bandwidth used
You will see a system tray icon appear like the one in the above picture. You can hover over the icon to get quick statistics also like you see in the picture.
Upon right clicking the icon you will get this context menu:
bandwidth monitoring tool
All of the options are pretty self explanatory but we will run through them anyway. By clicking on the first item Show Graph you will get a screen that looks like this:
That graph will keep updating and is very accurate. The only options it has is – open or closed :)
Next is the Speed Meter:
Go ahead and hit the Start button and let it calculate all your downloads and uploads – it will then calculate how much data is traveling through your system currently. You can start, stop, reset counters, copy .to clipboard or save to file. The incrementing numbers is simply a stop watch so you can see how long you have been collecting data for.
Next up is the usage statistics:
You can get detailed information for daily, weekly or monthly statistics. You can set up your own custom reports as well as set hourly rates. And for those of you still using dial up – it has some stats for you as well.
The Quota tab looks like this:
Using this tab you can have Networx alert you when you have used a certain amount of data.
Next up is our settings:
The last three options are graphical network tools. They are NetStat, Ping and Trace Route. Netstat will tell you what is connected to your machine:
Ping allows you to test connectivity over the network or Internet:
bandwidth monitoring tool
and Trace Route lets you “Trace” your network route step by step to see where it is failing (or that it is succeeding):
Do you have another way for keeping track of your bandwidth? Do you have other favorite network tool to measure bandwidth usage?
If you do be nice, c’mon share them with the others…

Enjoyed the article?
