Is your child a hacker?

BSD, Lunix, Debian and Mandrake are all versions of an illegal hacker operating system, invented by a Soviet computer hacker called Linyos Torovoltos, before the Russians lost the Cold War. It is based on a program called “xenix”, which was written by Microsoft for the US government.
These programs are used by hackers to penetrate other people’s computer systems to steal credit card numbers. They could also be used to penetrate other people’s music channels and steal their music using the “mp3” program. Torovoltos is a prominent hacker, responsible for writing many hacker programs, such as “telnet”, which is used by hackers to connect to Internet machines without using the telephone …
Your child could try installing “lunix” on his hard drive. If you are careful, you may not be aware of their presence, however lunix is ​​a whimsical beast, and if handled improperly, your child could damage your computer, and even break it completely if you delete Windows, in which case you will need your computer is repaired by a professional.

If you see the word “LILO” during Windows startup (just after turning on the machine), your child has installed lunix. To be able to eliminate it you will have to send your computer back to the manufacturer, so that he can install a new hard drive. Lunix is ​​an extremely dangerous software and can not be erased without destroying part of the surface of your hard drive.

PD: I just copy what was already said in Kriptopolis: I just ask that no absent-minded journalist find it and take it seriously, please.

Download videos from Google, YouTube, …

Vdonwloader, a program that works to perfection and allows you to download videos from google videos, youtube, Dailymotion, etc. in AVI or MPG formats just by entering the url of the video 😉 a pity that at the moment does not support metacafe (at less since the program does not give the option).

Party in the Atahualpa, chronicle of a night

When I change my blog to wordpress, I leave all my old stories behind, but seeing that there are many who asked me for the chronicle of the atahualpa, I picked it up and put it back here 😉

Anyway, the old one still has it here, I do not know why …

For those who do not know what is going on, it is a chronicle about the parties of my faculty (Computing at the Pontifical University of Salamanca) that were organized in a nightclub called Atahualpa

And that people do not take bad concept of the night Salamanca, that removing exceptions, we have very good atmosphere 🙂


The words most heard during yesterday were: buahh pedal go I’m going to catch tonight, drunk, my mother free bar in the atahualpa for 9 euros ..

23:21: Arrived at the atahualpa
23:43: We managed to get closer to the bar
23:59: I get to ask
24:05: The waitress processes my order
24:06: The waitress tells me that that can not serve me (was not it all free bar?)
24:08: The waitress made the first ice
24:09: The waitress made the second ice
24:10: The waitress has misplaced the second ice, throws it out and made another
24:11: The waitress finds the bottle and serves me
24:12: I wet my lips at last
24:13: I ask for another drink
24:14: The waitress ignores me
24:34: The waitress keeps ignoring me
24:42: Insult to the waitress, I think that does not help me anymore
24:43: They just opened another bar I’m running
24:44: In the new bar they do not have ice, I have to wait
24:50: The ice arrives (in a mop bucket, to last about 10-15 minutes)
01:01: I manage to take my second cup
01:02: I’m going to ask for my third cup
01:03: There are no ice
01:10: I go to the service to cry
01:15: I pick up 3 glasses and go to the bar
01:30: I ask for 3 glasses
01:41: They serve me the 3 glasses
01:45: I dig in with my 3 glasses between a table and the speaker, grrrrrrr that nobody comes near!
01:48: The last drink .. it was the good one .. good bottle .. I’m noticing it ..
01:50: Rufus arrives, the savior, he knows the waitresses, it turns out that the blonde apart from being slow and believed is Romanian, as she calls immigration …
01:52: Rufus provides us with drinks because, as they know him, they serve him before others.
02:20: we left the atahualpa never to return
Basically that was the night, for the future organizers of social events, take good care of this bar because they have not kept their word, 6 waiters promised and at the beginning there were only 4, on the edges of balls, they also said that all the drinks came and they did not It was like this.

I do not know if they would make a lot of money but what I do know is that many people left dissatisfied and there is nothing worse than that.

New “attacks”

I read genbeta that new malware has appeared on the Internet.

Trend Micro tells us about two new types of attacks related to the new features that most browsers incorporate.

The first of them is Tabjacking, which uses tabbed browsing to use some of them to show advertising, making it also persistent, that is, it stays between sessions when opening and closing the browser.

The other type of attack is Searchbox Stealing, which consists of adding search engines to the search box of the browser and using them by default, so that false results are shown when searching from it.

For now it does not seem that these attacks are very extended, but better to be attentive to them, because it would not be surprising that we would soon find them running through the network.

Zaragoza City Council migrates to linux

The city of Zaragoza will save a million euros a year by migrating all its windows systems to Linux.

The migration process will be completed by the end of 2008.
The complete news you can read in baquia.

Problems with library software

As we can read in the country, a good one has been assembled with the new software implemented in Madrid’s libraries:

After more than three years of preparation and eight months in operation, the computer program that manages the cataloging of the books of the municipal libraries of the capital still does not work. The Estela, which replaced the Syrtex in June 2006 and was designed by Software AG, has left a trail of thousands of books accumulated in the central warehouse. “Now it starts to work, but it keeps hanging all the time. It’s a continuous nuisance, “says an employee at a library who does not want to reveal his identity.

Advanced Linux Programming

Linux Programming “you can find a link to all the chapters of the book here.

The truth is that it has come to me of pearls to throw an eye to him to some chapters of programming of processes, since this year in the subject of Design of Operative Systems we used much programming on linux, and the truth that documentation on specific aspects in Internet. It is not that I have found much.

Available in PDF format (Open Publication License) and source code (GPL) and at the moment there is no translation into Spanish :-p but everything is understood wonderfully.

Now I will continue with the practice of OS that must be delivered on Monday and at this step .. I choke all, todita, all xD

A former employee sued IBM for addiction to the Network

James Pacenza was fired from IBM for spending many hours visiting adult sites, and now he has sued the company, asking him to compensate him with 5 million dollars.

Pacenza alleges that he suffers Internet addiction, so he could not stop visiting adult chats during his work hours. In his opinion, what he needed was to receive a treatment, not to be thrown out.

According to his lawyer, the former worker of the Blue Giant never visited pornographic sites during the working day, so he did not violate any company regulations.

However, sources of the company said that its policy against surfing the Internet on websites for adults is very clear, and that Pacenza was notified four months before his behavior before firing him definitively, something that the plaintiff denies.

Pacenza also claims that other workers have received much less severe treatment and that IBM should compensate him for not helping him overcome his addiction to the Network.

Your Windows programs on Linux

One of the things that people go to linux misses, are some programs that have been using for years and have no counterpart in the free operating system.

Some time ago I read of some possibilities to be able to use these programs from a Linux distribution and the one I liked the most was wine (known free implementation of the Windows API for GNU / Linux.), But when trying to test it with some programs, its result It was not the expected one.

Today I found out that a new version of Wine has come out, the 0.9.31, which can be downloaded from the mirror. The main novelties in this new version are:

  • Some errors in Direct3D have been fixed and some performance improvements have been made.
  • New test cases for comctl32.
  • More fixes in OLE32.
  • Improvements in the IDL compiler.
  • Numerous bugs fixed.

You can read the whole, from the official Wine website.

Things I did not know about php

Interesting list of things that you probably did not know about php (I did not even know half) taken from this website and this one.

ip2long () and long2ip ()

These two functions ip2long () and long2ip () serve to store the IP addresses as integers rather than as strings in the database, this will reduce the storage resources obtained from the 15 bytes of a chasr (15) to the 4 bytes of an integer

Validation of email addresses

The partial validation of IP addresses is easy thanks to the checkdnsrr () function.
This function assures us that the domain returned exists, for example very useful in case of how it is:

‘’ Valid
‘’ Not Valid

How not to do unnecessary work

If you do not want to be working on a certain function for a while, then realize that you have reinvented the wheel … check PEAR before writing the following lines of code.

PEAR – A framework and system of distribution of utilities Php. PEAR offers us php complements grouped in “Packages”.

Format your code

A function that formats a last string, specially designed for source code, highlight_file ().

Very useful in case we want to share questions about our code with a friend either by messenger, IRC or any similar service.

Do not show the errors

Avoid displaying message errors with the error_reporting (0) function. Useful in case of having shared hosting you must include it in the first line of each of your scripts, this will prevent information about PHP connections and MySQL users from being displayed.


PHP uses a mix between interpretation and compilation to try to offer programmers the best between performance and flexibility.

PHP compiles a series of instructions (called opcodes) for your code whenever they are accessed. These instructions are then executed one by one until the script ends. This is different from the conventional way of compiling languages ​​such as C ++ where the code is compiled into executable code that is then executed. Php is recompiled every time a script is requested.

The tag?> Is optional

Each one of the php files that you have programmed probably have this format:

But did you know that the label?> Is optional? Delete it and everything will continue to work, I’m not sure it works with all versions but it works in PHP 5.1.
There is no good argument to justify its removal from our code, but it is quite curious.

Masks other languages within PHP

Java, Perl, Python and .NET are some examples of languages that you can use within PHP code. Support for other languages can be found in PECL.

Make objects look like arrays

You can use the standard SPL php library to convert objects to an array in the following way:

$object = new MyObject();
$object[‘name’] = ‘Hello World’;

object = new MyObject();

foreach ($object as $k=>$v) {
echo “$k = $v\n”;

Require is faster than require_once

In versions prior to PHO 5.2 using require instead of require_once you can get a speed increase especially in heavy applications. The reason is that require_once makes an extra call to the system to validate that you have not included this file previously. Require includes a file without any verification.

Handling your mistakes is easy

The summary of errors programmed by PHP certainly is not the best. The famous “headers already sent” or “call to undefined function” that appears in bold and with a line number that may or may not be correct.

But you can program your own error handler.s:

function mis_errores ($numero, $mensaje, $archivo, $linea) {
// Añade el CSS para tu codigo
echo ‘

El siguiente error ocurrio en linea ‘ . $linea . ‘ del archivo ‘ . $archivo . ‘: ‘ . $mensaje . ‘
echo ‘

Las actuales variables son:

‘ . print_r($GLOBALS, 1) . ‘


Then you will use your own default handler and not the PHP handler to PHP in the set_error_handler () function.

Then most of the errors will be handled by your function (but there are some exceptions). With the previous example the errors are printed with html format.

I should even consider the possibility of sending these errors via mail with the mailto function and in this way you will have real time control of your site, or even handle errors in the connection to a database.

try {
if (!@mysql_connect(‘localhost’, ‘username’, ‘password’))
throw new Exception (mysql_error());
} catch (Exception $e) {
echo ‘Imposible conectar a la base de datos: ‘ . $e->getMessage();


Well, finally I have a little time between exams to add some things from the old blog to this one.

On the one hand I have passed the guestbook, it is a little bit frivolous because they all have the same date and time and it seems that I have put them 😀 and on the other hand I have put the old assembler section inside university, my intention will be hang some notes, some practices, if someone wants to collaborate, it’s good for you (students of the ponti), you can send me yours and I’ll hang it here.

On the other hand I have added a photo of myself and using GD + php + mySQL I have created a visitor counter to show with a graphic the last 7 days.

I do not want to fill the page with a lot of photos since it will take a long time to load, so during these days I will continue to make some changes.

Internet Explorer will activate the Activex components

A great news for web programmers because so far one of the worst things that happened when programming a component for a website was that from the explorer the user was forced to activate it before it could be used, which could be heavy for any visitor

What I did not know was that in some cases, this could be avoided by using javascript.

In short, there is no need to worry that as of January the activex controls will be activated automatically through the “Internet Explorer Automatic Component Activation Preview”

First round of exams finished

Yesterday I had, in my opinion, the worst exam of February, 5 hours sitting in front of the computer to do a partial Java in which I had to use Serialization and Introspection of Objects.

The thing was like this, for the Approved: implement the creation, for the notable, in addition to the above the invocation and for the outstanding, adding apart from basic types, Strings .. support for arrays.

Before the exam was clear that in an hour and a half at most two hours could finish it .. yes, from 4 to 9 there sitting and only to do the approved and without finishing the remarkable (missing support for several parameters).

Problems I had:

– Lack of knowledge, since I could have used a function that returned me the constructor that I wanted by simply passing the appropriate parameters, as I did not know of the existence of that function, I had to program it whole, that is, recovering all the constructors declared for an object and checking for each number of parameters and type.

– VERY TYPICAL programming flaws. I lost something more than an hour and a half, as I was continually failing a function I had programmed. This function (contained in the previous section, that is, could have saved me) had to return true if the parameters were consistent with the constructor and false otherwise. What was happening? because he did not do it well, he always returned true and he made an exception. Far from thinking Why does it always return true? I focused on the exception that occurred, blaming the failure of the function, very bad on my part. After an hour and a half I learned that after calling the function, I checked if it was true, and if it was because I invoked the constructor, what happens … that more than verifying that it was true, I assigned it true, then always executed the first constructor and if the parameters did not fit the exception 😛
check = checkTypeParameters (…);
if (check = true) {…}

The function was correct, an = I had taken almost almost two hours of exam … send noses, but hey, from the mistakes you learn 😛 from now-> if (checkTypeParameters) {..} and I’m done with lios 🙂
I hope to approve 🙂 but it depends on the teacher, because when I get nervous … I do not attend to reasons, nor to modulated programming xDD is a salve who can, if you do not mind that the code is a little sloppy … hehe and otherwise neither nothing happens, in June I’m sure I get it much better 😉

Remove Windows Live Messenger advertising

With WLM Universal patcher you can remove the advertising that accompanies the last instant messaging client of Microsoft.

Remove the tabs, the banners, the advertising bars, the MSN search engine …

It even brings several options to customize it to your liking.

Something that surely will like a lot is that it brings support for several accounts. It also includes several languages, including Spanish, so you have no excuse not to use it.

Password theft on Myspace

I read in barrapunto that: 60,000 users have “stung” on a phishing page and have entered their MySpace passwords. The most curious of the subject are the passwords most used among those who have fished: “password1” (106), “abc123” (73), “swimmer1” (43), “iloveyou1” (41), “monkey1” (40) , “Fuckyou” (37), “123456” (33), “myspace1” (32), “fuckyou1” (32), “i” (32). Truly impressive, among them we see some classics such as “123456” and “password1” also known as “password1” … we must admit that they are easy to remember, which is usually inversely proportional to the security of the password.

I GPS, freeing MY 268


Click here to release a GPS MIO MOOV.

To install TomTom 6 or 7 in a PDA with WINCE 5.0 / 4.2 or in a GPS MIO 268 (+) / 269 (+) go to this forum, I think that everything is more organized and people can make improvements in a more simple as well as to anticipate the doubts.

To install MioMap v3 stay on this page and follow the instructions.

Well, it seems that several friends have already asked me about GPS’s, which ones to buy, which is better, if you have radars … etc etc

The first thing is to understand that there are different things to buy. On the one hand you can buy a radar detector, simply by plugging it into the car you will be notified of places where the DGT has made a radar public, or even places where they have ever been, this device is completely legal, but it does not work tell us roads

On the other hand if you have a PDA or a cell phone enabled for it, you can buy a card (Flash, SD, ..) GPS or a GPS device by infrared or bluetooth and so you take advantage of your “mobile device” to convert it into GPS. You will need to install a cartography program with which you can use GPS, the most used in these cases is the TomTom. (There are free alternatives to the TomTom but leave much to be desired).

In this case you can also install free programs to calculate the kilometers traveled, the average consumption, speed …

The last possibility is to buy a GPS that brings everything in one device, GPS Antenna + Software.

If I had to buy a GPS right now I would see if I want it only for the radars (Warning, much cheaper) or for directions.
In the case that I want it for indications, if apart I want to introduce the radars I would opt for one of the TomTom model (much simpler to add POI’s), but if I want it for quality, I would certainly erect a MIO (Something more complicated to introduce radars, explained below).
Something that would also take into account is that it had SD cards, MMC .. it is always easier to update maps and POIS’s in this way (as long as our computer has a card reader)

And finally I would also notice that it had bluetooth with what we would gain a hands-free for the car 🙂

The same one prefers to wait for Galileo.

In my case, I have an MIO 268 plus, the kings gave it to me last year 🙂
The truth is that I am very happy, the software that comes with it, is the MioMap v2.0, although version 3 has already come out, you can see an example of it here.

Obviously to update maps in most GPS you have to pay.

The different programs to manage a GPS antenna (TomTom, MioMap, …) depends on each one, it is best to try them all and choose which one we like the most, for example I love how the MioMap guides me, in addition to clear maps and simple, on the contrary, many people prefer the TomTom (the best known).
What is the problem with my browser? Well when I went to put the radars as POIs (Points of interest) I would not allow it, the only solution they gave me was to download a payment program to put them, and after spending 400 euros I was not going to pay more to get the radars.

Mine 268 is based on Windows CE and what it does when it is turned on is to load a program by default, where it lets you access the browser, settings, contacts .. but it does not allow you to mess anything else out of that, so I decided to get out of that program and to be able to accede to the folders of the navigator to put the radars to “hair”.

This process took me some weeks, I found several pages that indicated how to do something similar but not for the same model as mine and many others but in French (I gave German in school) so I did not know much.

Note: If these steps do not work for you, there is another alternative solution at the end of the article.

I will try to remember how I did it since it was more than a year ago:

  1. The first thing is to download these files
    1. Zip to liberalize
    2. Zip with the original content (just in case)
  2. We put in an SD card (we will call it TARJETALIBRE) the content of the Zip to liberalize.
  3. We take out the MIO card and introduce the new card, TARJETALIBRE, into the gps.
  4. We turn on / configure / select language / select English
    1. If you do not see the English language you can do several things, first, if you have the CD that came with the GPS, put it on your computer, connect your gps via the cable to the computer and install following the menus of the CD English language .
    2. Another alternative would be, in case we had more languages other than Spanish, but none in English, access our MIO card and enter the language folder, there we would choose any other than Spanish and copy their name, for example, let’s say we have two languages, “espanol20Cab” and “frances25Cab”, then we would copy the name frances25Cab.
    3. Now we would go to the content of TARJETALIBRE, we would look for the file that contained in the name something of “english” and we would change the name for “frances25Cab”
      We would introduce TARJETALIBRE in our GPS, we would go to language selection and we would select the one that we would have changed, in this case, French.
  • It will give us an error (it is normal) since we are not loading any language, changing the configuration of beginning and ending the program, so we do not worry and we give it to ok, this will cause the GPS to restart appearing already on the desktop of the Windows CE.
  • Now we run the windows explorer, we go to our SD card, to the Installation folder and we execute the Customio and the Nico85ActiveSync
  • NOTE: to be able to execute, if you do not know how to do it by clicking on the circle button while having the window active, it will be valid.
  • Now we will import the registry, go to MioregEdit (on the desktop) File / Import Registry / My document / CustoMio /mio.reg
  • We restart by inserting the pencil into the reset button on the side (not the back of the GPS)
  • When starting, it will tell us if we want to install the bananaPC program, we will say yes and we will restart again.
  • We install ActiveSync on the computer.
  • We connect the GPS via the cable to the computer
  • We run the windows explorer / windows / USB transfer
  • We downloaded the Gapi program.
  • We run the ActiveSync on the computer, click on explore and look for the .exe that came in the Zip of Gapi, we executed it.
  • Now that we have Gapi installed, we downloaded the MioMap v3 and the maps and put it on the same card directly.
  • We run the GAPI and look for the configuration for “MIO 269 Digiwalker CE 4.2 320 × 240”
  • We turn on the GPS and run the windows explorer, go to our SD card and run the miomap.exe

Well after all this I went to the MioMap folder to add my POIs which I could not because it brings everything within the same file, maps and pois (in the tomtom it is different, each one by its side).

So over time I have no choice but to buy the TomTom and install it on my GPS.
Although the GPS was another brand having liberalized (this is like mobile phones) I can do what I want.

Right now I use the MioMap to navigate, since I like its plans and indications, and the tomtom to warn me about the radars. I also use it as MP3 for the car (it has a 1GB SD card and player) and at home 😀 and I also install an image viewer.

What I did in the car was to fix it, I created a device to have it fixed in an empty hole in the front, I connected it to the cassette so that I could hear it through the car’s speakers and when I had to charge it I used the cigarette lighter (it would be another connector) for the lighter and leave it fixed, but at the moment I’m not interested).

This way I use it where I want and how I want it, image viewer, MP3 player of 1 GB (for home and for the car), radar warning, GPS navigator … and any program that can be installed in a pocket PC.

New version of MioMap v3.2

The new version is now available, you can get it here, and the maps from here.

To install it you will only have to overwrite the files of the version 3.0 and change the icon of home, it is not the IGO now it is the orange of MioMap v3.2.

PS: This version already includes the radars in the MioMap !!

PD2: If you want the maps of the rest of Europe, you can download them from here, although first you will have to download the MioMapDecode program, extract it in the same folder as the downloaded maps (.fbl format) and run Decodedmaps.bat, with this you will create a folder called Mapsdecoded and that will contain all the maps ready to be inserted in our SD card.

Map Download: Spain
If someone gives you problems from this page (in Italian) they explain in more detail how to decode the maps. (thanks to DavidM)

PD3: Finally we must change the gxold.dll of our SD and take it to the windows folder of our gps, and with the gx.dll of the windows folder take it to our SD card (where was the gxold.dll) run and go! (If we do not do this step it is possible that when running the MioMap 3 we will not see anything and leave the program.

Update of MioMap v3.2 radars

To update our radars we will only need to update our POIupdates.upd file, which is located on the memory card in MioMap / miotc / pois, this file can be downloaded in two ways:

1- From the Todo-Poi page with this direct link (remember, the igo.db is not necessary to write it)

2- Cbolumar radars, download them from here.
– The access password is: cbolumar
– The file to be downloaded will be the CBOLUMAR-Robser_ (date) .rar (download the most recent)
– To obtain radars in the rest of Europe we can download the file SpeedCams.mtc

In both we can see the dates of the last update, so we will download the most recent one, we will be able to consult these pages with periodicity and when changes are seen download the files.

These files are available thanks to the effort made by people like those of Todo-poi, cbolumar and a lot of other people, to all of them many thanks.

Notes taken from forum cars on radar warnings in the MioMap v3

PD1: The radars icons are shown and hidden along with the names of the streets on the map.

PD2: The radar warnings DO NOT WORK in the “Overfly” or “Simulation” mode.

PD3: The radars in the MioMap are NOT managed as if they were POIS as the TT does, they are simply radars, and they are activated where it is put in message No. 1

Installing the TomTom 6 in the MIO 268+

For those who want more, we can install the TomTom 6 in our MIO, for it we will have to download it and insert it in our SD card.

From our GPS we will go to that folder, enter 2577 and execute the ttn.

Once this is done we have already installed the TomTom in our GPS, to make it work, we must make a link to the executable that has been created in My Computer \ Program Files \ Navigator to be able to execute it from the desktop.

The next thing is to create a folder called tomtom inside My Computer / TomTom and inside it we will put all the voices that we have in the folder voices inside the tomtom of our SD card.

Finally we must change the gxold.dll of our SD and take it to the windows folder of our gps, and with the gx.dll of the windows folder take it to our SD card (where was the gxold.dll) run and go!

PS: We’ll need the maps for TomTom but .. it will not work 😛

PD2: To install the radars, download them with the TomTom format and put them in the map folder, then you will have to activate them from the GPS as POIS, putting sounds, warning time ..

PD3: To configure GPS, you must select from among all GPS: “TomTom GPS receiver with cable”.

Alternative steps to release the GPS MIO 268+

In case you can not release my GPS through the steps above, here we offer (thanks to QUIQUE) some alternative steps.

  1. Download the
  2. Insert the CD that comes with the Mio (ApplicationCD) and copy it to the PC hard drive.
  3. On the PC copy go to Install / Contacts / and change “Contacts.exe” to “ContactsMIO.exe”.
  4. that is in Customio.zipToutauto / 268 /, we copy it in the copy of the PC in Install / Contacts /.
  5. Install the Mio Transfer if you do not have it installed. Let’s put the card in the GPS (1Gb) empty.
  6. Connect the Mio 268 to the PC with the USB cable.
  7. In the copy of the PC you execute “Autorun.exe” press Ok.
  8. Press the “Install” in the middle, install something press Ok.
  9. Unplug the USB cable, the menu will appear press the 3rd option, once pressed enter the “Contacts” page press the contact program and perform a reset for two seconds (with the pointer, just below the headphone output) ( NEVER PUT THE EYELASH OF THE REAR PART OFF, THAT WILL ERASE EVERYTHING AND YOU WILL HAVE TO START AGAIN).
  10. Once restarted, the “BananaPC” program will be installed when finished, press Ok and reset.
  11. We take the SD card from the Mio and put it in the card reader of the PC, inside it we put the program and we put it in the Mio again, we look for the program that is in Windows / SDcard / and we install it will come out one more icon on the desktop.
  12. Now on Mio’s desktop, open “gsExplorer”, look for the folder “MyDocumentes” and in the “CustoMio” folder there are several files, press twice “RegEdit, exe”, a window will open, click on “File” and click Import . Look inside the same folder where is the RegEdit (MyDocumentes / Customio) the file “mioreg” and import it. Close the RegEdit and do a reset.
  13. Enter Windows again and look for a file called “USBTransfer”. Connect the USB cable and select it. On the PC a window opens, click on the
  14. explorer and we look for the GAPI program, we execute it. In the Mio’s desktop the GAPI icon is opened, in Device set we look for the line that says
  15. “MioDigiWalker269,320 × 240” we select, accept, save and exit.
    We already have all the programs installed, we clean the Mio desktop, open “gsExplorer” open the Windows folder and the desktop folder and delete the icons that are not needed, we leave the others in favorites.

Back up to avoid having to do the whole process again

Thanks to Javi, we have the program, Backup Manager, with which we can make a backup of our gps mine, and so when the battery runs out and we lose all the configuration we can reset it in a simple way.

The instructions for use, are in a .txt within the rar that contains the program, I hope it is useful and I just have to thank Javi for his collaboration 🙂

Wceusbsh.sys file error

This error message is generated only on computers that use the Microsoft Wceusbsh.sys driver and the ActiveSync 3.1 to synchronize a Windows CE-based device with the host computer. This problem has been noticed only on legacy-free computers (computers with no COM port or no ISA board bus slots).

Try installing the latest version of ActiveSync or try connecting the GPS from another computer (a friend)


The 7 horrors of humanity

In numerous pages you can see the 7 new wonders but in few the 7 horrors.

From the magazine interviu they echo what they think are the 7 worst things that coexist with humanity.

1 HUNGER 20.7%
One in four voters has pointed to hunger as the most terrible of misfortunes. The 24,000 deaths that, according to the UN, provokes, directly and indirectly, every day are more than enough reason to occupy such a horrible position.

Together or separately, the petty of horrors. commercial interests that threaten to extinguish these two animal species have touched the sensibility of our readers.

India, Thailand or Romania are just some of the stops on a miserable circuit where about one million children enter every year. The infancias broken by the perverted tastes of the West occupy the third place in this list of horrors.

The ecological concerns of the voters and the dismay of climate change are reflected in their concern for the destruction of the Amazon rainforest, the greatest biodiversity on Earth. In the last three decades, close to 600,000 hectares have disappeared, about 16 percent of the total of the Amazon.

Although readers have not chosen it as the most serious, AIDS is actually the horror that lives the most lives: 6,000 people die every day in the African continent because of this pandemic, aided by the passivity of the pharmaceutical industry and intransigence of the Vatican.

6 BURKA 5.2%
It is the symbol of the total subjection of women to men in the Taliban regimes, but above all a sad reality that they have not been able to get rid of in Afghanistan, despite the change of regime.

It is the last of the chosen ones and, nevertheless, the closest one we have. Spain continues to add victims at the hands of male violence, without any law or government measure to stop this unfortunate bleeding.

Peugeot will use linux

And I do not mean the car, but the employees of the French company. First a test was done with 300 employees using Mandriva Linux, the results had to be satisfactory since the company has chosen to assign 20,000 employees of the 72,000 employees who have a special version of SUSE Linux Enterprise from Novell, with OpenOffice pre installed.

Update your programs

For a long time I needed a program of this type, one of the most important failures in the computers comes due to the lack of updating of the programs, now with filehippo we will not have to worry more about this task.

This program will be responsible for updating the existing software on our computer, and on top of that it supports all versions of Windows, from 98 to the new Vista.

What happens when a computer does not work?

This man complains that after ruining his Macbook in the store Apple refused to take over the repair claiming that the warranty did not cover damage from spillage of liquid, because it did not serve much decided to fix it with hammer, record it with his camera and hang it on youtube.

As a result of his “aggressive” action Apple after learning of the popularity of the video over the network has decided to give him another Macbook



These days the blog has been a bit abandoned and it is because I have already started working in Madrid and I have not had much time to update it.

It’s not that work absorbs me completely but I’m still adapting and at home I do not have Internet.

At the moment I’m getting used to this city although where Salamanca is … it makes me angry not to be with my friends, with the people I love and do all those things I used to do.

Today I have returned to Salamanca to finish my last exam, and finally I am a Senior Engineer;)
This stage of my life ends, no more university, the work begins and it is now when I perfectly understand the phrase: “As a student you live very well”

Free your mobile

In the latest advertising campaign of Yoigo explain in detail various ways to free your mobile phone, from the most obvious, which is to call your operator and ask, they will ask for the IME and if you have finished your contract of permanence they will release you, until offering pages where the process is explained.

The last resort is the best known, find a store near the house where they can be released in the back room.

It seems to me a little shameless that it is a company that “incites” to release the phones, but it is clear, here the one that does not run …

In some cases we can find software over the network to free our phone, a few days ago we talked about how you could release an iPhone using software.

Mouse with vein reader

Although we are used to seeing “disparate” things in the world of technology, now Fujitsu has just launched a mouse with a vein reader, that is, if it is not you, the computer will not work. It is based on a biometric technique that recognizes the veins in the palm of the hand.
