Digitalhead Daily & [TIPS] RunAsDate lets you indefinitely extend... - StumbleUpon
If you get a trial version of a program, it will generally give to a certain amount of time to try the software and evaluate it before buying. What if the software’s 3-day trial period just isn’t enough for you to be satisfied? There are a few programs out there that will let you run programs as a set date to get more out of a trial period, but RunAsDate from NirSoft seems to be the most simple out of the bunch. This utility is simple to use. Just install your trial software normally. Run it once to get settings and profiles set. To simplify the process later on, tell it to create a desktop shortcut. This could be a downside if the program actually uses the date and time for whatever purpose, but if you want everything to work properly, you might want to consider either buying the software or looking for an open source alternative. Now for the caveats. I do not condone piracy because writing software code is a job too, and the developers should get paid for their hard work.

DIY Continuous Ink Printer = Unlimited Free Printing Instead of paying for absurdly priced printer cartridges, build yourself a Continuous Ink Printer (CIS) which can be made by hacking an old printer to suck ink from external reservoirs. You can get the raw ink for dirt cheap so it’s essentially like unlimited printing for free (besides the paper). So now you can actually print your collection of pirated books! A CIS is relatively easy to create, just take an Epson Stylus 760 (a surprisingly hard to find printer) and make a few modifications to it.
