Custom Windows Visual Styles @iroQuai: dude that sucks so bad, how can u use that? @pnikkosis: Hmm I think it's really a matter of personal preferences... I really like this style! The windows look a lot like the classic windows theme, but then better. I also like the blue taskbar, it's nice and calm. BTW, I'm using the "Plastic" color sceme, which can be seen in the display properties window on the screenshow at deviantart. But you can think it sucks, no problem. @iroQuai: Looks like gnome on Linux. @iroQuai: I actually quite like it and have switched to it...for now, I'm sure that'll change eventually.

How-To: Easily Remove the Vocals from Most Songs | 2015 Shortcut: When I wrote this article Audacity didn’t have an automatic center-panned vocal canceling effect… but now it does, so rather than do the stereo-separate / invert-one-track / play-both-as-mono trick (and that’s pretty much all there is to it), you should be able to find the Vocal Remover option in the Effects menu – but it’s more fun / interesting and can give better results if you do it yourself! =D I found this trick the other day whilst stumbling the Interwebs and thought I’d do a quick-write up w/ pictures to make it as easy as possible… For this exercise we’re going to be using a piece of free audio software called Audacity, which you can get for Linux, Windows and Mac. Update: If you’re trying this out on a Mac, please make sure you get Audacity 1.3 Beta or newer – the stable 1.2 version appears to have a missing equaliser decibal-range slider which you need towards the end of the process! 1.) 2.) 3.) With that done, give it a play and see what happens! 4.) 5.) Wrap Up

Fix Windows folder unresponsive/slow behavior, green loading bar Hate that green loading bar when browsing a local folder? Makes no sense, right? An old Windows fix for an equally ancient Windows issue. This Windows Explorer "bug" goes back to the days of Windows Vista, yet unfortunately remains a glaring annoyance in Windows 7 and Windows 8. This unresponsive/slowdown behavior is typically seen when browsing the "Downloads" folder, so it's very likely it's happened to you as well. Windows tries to be smart about the files you store in your folders and thus optimizes the view and sorting options for pictures or videos. Needless to say it's a very frustrating behavior, but thankfully something that can be easily fixed. In Windows Explorer, right click the Downloads folder (or any folder you are having issues with), then select Properties. That should do the trick. Note Windows might forget this setting in the future if you keep storing certain types of files (images or videos) and again default to optimize for them.

Pandora: How to Rip and Save Pandoras Music to MP3 Files for Free Pandora is an amazing music service. If you want to actually save the music to your hard drive to keep forever and forever, these steps will allow you to do it easily. Burn straight to mp3 with tags, titles, and sorting intact. You need firefox as well. 1. New instructional guide here: 3. Welcome to Pandoras Jar Attempting to lauch on port 80...OK [ready, lets grab some MP3'S!!!] 7. Capture & Save Any Type Of Streaming Content Using Media Sniffer [Windows] When we find something we enjoy on the Internet, we often want to hoard it for ourselves and keep it forever (be it legal or not). The most frequent and obvious of this type of behavior is when people are begging to know how to save YouTube videos to their hard drive. You’ve probably done that once or twice by now through means of browser extension or a third-party website. Using those sort of services is completely fine, but you’ll eventually run into a snag. Media Sniffer sniffs your traffic at the network level, ensuring that any piece of media you experience (since downloaded and cached) show up as available for keeps. It’s important to know which network interface to sniff and analyze. More than just the narrowing of filetypes, you’re also able to determine what specific URLs the media can be found from, and under what user agent (or browser). Once you’re comfortable with how you’ve got it configured, take it for a spin. Again, just right click, copy, and paste into your browser.
