Facebook who view my page

I always wondered about this with Facebook and here is the results on who view my page. As per Facebook, they do not track who views you. And as for third party software telling you they do this. Well it can only occur if they add this application to your account and I if you do so, you might be risking more than you bargain for. So take control of your privacy and don't be fooled with third party add on's.

Reset a Computer

A while back I talked about resetting a computer back to clean slate (Deep Freeze) and it's still a great option for public computers but the software was eventually discontinued for new versions of Windows.
Now Reboot Restore Rx is following Deep Freeze footsteps and taking it further in Windows 7 and 8 version. But it comes with a premium price that's reasonable for now for public machines.
Steadier State is another option to take but it only works for now on Windows 7.

Worried about an IRS audit? Well this advice from Kiplinger may just put your fears to rest. It's been know that if the IRS does not initiate an audit, three years after the date of return.
So if you failed to file or record anything, you could get away with it, but the other reason's not to toss a tax return has to do with social security benefits, depreciation on home office, rental and business equipment, home mortgage and disability insurance. It can also maybe one day back you up from identity theft.

Win 8 Password Reset

Here's an easier way to reset the Windows 8 password via installation disk. It does the trick but you still can't guarantee that all your encrypted files will be saved.


There are many ways to reset a forgotten admin password. There are free and commercial tools that all essentially do the same thing. However, as a proud DevOp or cool hacker, it is against your honor to use third-party tools. The guide below describes how to reset a password on a Windows 8 machine where you have no administrator password, in an easy way that even a typical iPad user could follow.
Before I start, I have to add a warning. Resetting a password of a Windows account always means that data that has been encrypted by Windows tools, such as the Encrypting File System (EFS) or stored Internet Explorer passwords, will be lost. You can avoid this by resetting the password of an account that hasn’t been used. For instance, you could enable the built-in administrator account to be able to secure the encrypted data first. If you used BitLocker to encrypt the system drive, you first have to unlock the encrypted Windows partition. If you didn’t use any Windows-based encryption you are save to reset your password with this guide.


  1. Insert your Windows 8 boot DVD or boot flash drive, turn on the computer, and wait until you see the message Press any key to boot from CD or DVD. Follow the instructions precisely and press any key. (Note: If you don’t see this message, you probably have to change the boot drive order in the BIOS and/or disable Secure Boot. This usually is nothing for post PC users. Ask someone with a solid computer education.)
    Press any key to boot from CD or DVD
  2. Well done! The most difficult part is behind us. Windows 8 Setup will greet you and encourage you to configure your language settings. Press SHIFT+F10 to open a command prompt. (Note: I could shorten this part of my original post thanks of the tip given by PCFreak. See comment below.)
  3. Here you are. The unlimited possibilities of the Windows command prompt are now at your fingertips. Type copy d:\windows\system32\sethc.exe d:\. (Note: If you get the error message The system cannot find the specified path, you probably have an unusual drive configuration. Replace “d:” in the command above with different drive letters until the error message disappears.)
  4. Now comes the real hacking. Type copy /y d:\windows\system32\cmd.exe d:\windows\system32\sethc.exe. This replaces the Sticky Keys app on your Windows 8 machine with the command prompt. More later about this.
    Reset Windows 8 password with the Sticky Keys trick
  5. Close the Language setup windows by clicking the X in the upper right corner and then confirm that you want to cancel the Windows installation. Yes, this guide can also be followed by post Windows users.
    Cancel Windows installation
  6. Wait until you see the Windows 8 Lock Screen.
    Windows 8 Lock Screen
  7. Hit the SHIFT key five times. Yes, we are doing magic here. No wand is needed, though. We replaced the Sticky Keys app that helps people who can’t press CTRL-ALT-DEL easily. You should now see the command prompt.
    Hit SHIFT five times
  8. Type net user. This will produce a list of user names on the Windows 8 computer. (Note: The Windows 8 Lock Screen will reappear while you hack along.)
    List available user accounts
  9. Choose the user name for which you want to reset the password and type net useruser_name new_password, where user_name has to be replaced with your user name andnew_password, ah, I think you will figure this out yourself. (Note: If your user name or password contains blanks, you have to set it in quotes: net user “Tim Cook” “I will never forget my Windows 8 password again”).
    Set new password
  10. Congrats! You just reset your Windows 8 password. Close the command prompt (I hope you remember how) and log on with the new password (I hope you didn’t forget it again).
You might want to restore the Sticky Keys app (sethc.exe). For this, you have to follow the procedure above again until step 6 and use this command in step 7: copy /y d:\sethc.exe d:\windows\system32\sethc.exe.


Win 8 F8 Key

Need to know why the F8 key in Windows 8 doesn't work. This is Microsoft's way of hiding the command key that's been seen by user's for years. It is not recommended to show the F8 key. But if your one of those user's like myself who want full control of their computer. Here is how to do it.

Go to the command prompt (admin) and type the following

bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy legacy

To then return the boot command back to normal you then enter this in the DOS prompt

bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy standard

Traveling Tips Secrets

Taking a trip? Here are some great travel tips to remember the next time you fly. You never know when they can come in handy.
1- If you don't accumulate a lot of miles use the miles to be first online or for a better seat.
2- If airline looses your luggage disregard current liability policies. The airline owes you the value of your bag and you clothes. Up to in some cases to $3,300 per passenger.
3- If your baggage is missing when you get to your destination, the airline has to compensate you for necessities on the spot. Not 24 hours. If your challenged then cite the federal regulations title 14 part 254. This also includes baggage charge for your suitcase when boarding.
4- If an airline tries to book you at a later flight auction the second option. Never go for the first and see the bonus get higher.
