Create PS1 Image/Backup From CD

If for some reason you might ever want to keep a digital copy of all those old PS1 games, then there is an easy way to do it.

1)Download ImgBurn, the CD ripping/burning software, from here

2)Install ImgBurn and open the programme

2)Insert PlayStation game into CD drive and click 'Create image file from disc'

3)In the dropdown menu 'Source' find the CD drive which contains the PS1 game

4)In 'Destination' choose the required destination of PS1 game file

5)Click on the picture that has a CD being converted into a file with a CD picture on it. When you hover over it, it should say 'Read'


7)Profit. You should now have two files stored in the chosen destination folder. 'X'.bin and 'X'.cue

8)These two files can be used to play the game on a home-brew emulator for the PC or Wii, provided you own the original game - however what you do with the file has nothing to do with me. I am only showing you how to create a backup copy in case you lose the game.

Coma Cinema - Stoned Alone

Coma Cinema - Stoned Alone
A neat little album with an array of enjoyable songs. The synth-pop combined with mumbling and chorusing monotonous beat driven vocals creates some lo-fi bla bla bla (derp?)
I've never been good at describing albums. Just have a listen...

You can download the album for free from their website
Or you can check out their Myspace

Test Internet Connection

Alot of people will most definitely know this, however I have had a few of incidents where people do not know how to test their internet speed.

1)Stop all downloads/things that may impede connection
2)Go to
3)Click on appropriate server and wait for results
- What this does is download an 'empty' file on an open server with nothing to block your speed. Effectively, this is the fastest speed you will receive when downloading a file.

- UPLOAD is the speed for Uploading files
- DOWNLOAD is the speed for Downloading files

The speed in the picture is ridiculously fast (for New Zealand at least) but anywhere above 3Mb/s is generally considered Okay
*Note: When downloading files, you are being shown a transfer rate, rather than a download rate. Because 1 byte = 8 bit then you need to divide your speeds from SpeedTest by 8 in order to get the transfer rate.

As a rule a speed of 5Mb/s from speed test, should in theory give you a transfer rate of 625 kb/s when downloading a file. This will depend on time of day, where the server is located, traffic etc etc... at least as far as my understanding extends this is right? Anyone care to help?

Shit's Going Down

There's a new threat on the horizon known as ACTA and. they. are. out. to. get. you.
Padlock your HDD, sleep with it under the pillow, fucking bury the thing if thats needed. Most definitely delete dat' porn and uninstall your pirated OS.

Piracy is a crime (if you didn't know this you shouldn't be on the internet)
Anti Counterfeiting Trade Organisation is currently drafting a bill which will be voted for this coming Friday, in the US. ACTA aims to put a stop to all types of counterfeiting and piracy.
Speculation surrounds the topic, but various sources say that the bill will enforce an array of cyber-police mannerisms.

Basically, I think they are aiming to shut down the major music distributors. There were scares of this as Mediafire, and The Pirate Bay all experienced downtime over the past few days. This could have been because of the hurricane passing over some parts of America, or a early attack/raid from the RIAA. Added to this there will be an introduction to the 'Three Strikes' rule. Get caught being naughty three times, and no internetz4u my friend. It has also been said that if you are suspected of piracy, the government can seize your computer for inspection and they'll find everything, even if you reformat the hard drive. So, if a government van pulls up outside your house, magnet that shit like a motherfucker and grab the hammer for extra precaution.

If this Bill passes in the US then other countries such as Australia, Canada, the European Union, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, Morocco, New Zealand, Singapore and Switzerland may or may not follow suit.
Here is a small article explaining the situation.

Here is NZ's involvement with the ACTA bill (NZfag represent)

Speed Up Computer With Windows ReadyBoost

Windows 7 introduced an option to use 'ReadyBoost' to help speed up a slow computer running Windows 7.

On previous versions of Windows, when RAM memory was low, hard disk space was converted into Virtual Memory; acting as temporary RAM. ReadyBoost means that the pagefile (virtual memory file) is moved to a chosen USB thumb-drive. Virtual memory on a USB is significantly faster than virtual memory on a hard drive thus speeding up the computer when virtual memory is needed. Generally, ReadyBoost supplements your computers RAM.

The following process is really only needed if your computer struggles to run Windows 7 efficiently; and is low on RAM. You may only notice differences if your computer has less than 1GB of RAM. However if you can run windows fine, and have spare USB drives lying around, then I don't see the harm in doing so anyway- it may come in useful.

It should also be noted that this process can run-down a USB, as it may be accessed often. Because of this, ReadyBoost should be seen as a temporary fix for a slow computer.

1)Insert Flash Drive (the bigger and faster the write speeds, the better)
2)An auto-play window should pop-up, asking what to do with USB
3)Scroll down, and click 'Speed up my System with Windows ReadyBoost'
4)Choose whether to dedicate the whole USB to ReadyBoost, or only part of it by sliding the slider
5)Click 'Apply', and then 'OK'
7)Speed Profit

Where To Download Music

Anyways, places on the net to 'theoretically' obtain music.

1) Mediafire (Wide range of albums, clean and gives a solid download speed)
- Type 'artist album'
- Find appropriate link, click download.

2) Torrents (Safer option, able to download larger files and obtain faster speeds on popular files)
- Get Torrent client such as uTorrent
- Search for file on chosen Torrent site (TPB) and open .torrent file with torrent tracker
- Generally, make sure there are more 'Seeders' than 'Leechers'.

3) (bunch of elitist snobs who make you comply to the strictest of rules in order to get an account)
- Haven't used it, but all the 4fags thinks it's 'god-tier'
- If you somehow manage to get an account they have a wide-range of up-to-date music and audio encoding choices (mp3, FLAC...)

4) 4shared (Alright for single songs)
- Simple search website-type thing
 Get Youtube vidz
- Just c/p URL and choose quality

- Search by Title, Artist or Genre. ZOMGAH free legal downloads gogogo
- 40,000 downloadable albums supposedly

We Fucking Love Music blog (the best of the best)
- Every album is indexed and the blog is updated nearly everyday. These guys are legends man, some seriously good finds on here.
Strange Adventures
- Up and coming blogger to the blogosphere
Big Blog of Music Blogs
- Just lists and lists of links to other music blogs. Search and Find.

SD Card Stuck in iMac CD Drive

Okay well...
Pretty self-explanatory, if you happen to be a computer master like me then this sorta thing is bound to happen.
It's a common problem and rather easy to fix.
The SD slot and the CD drive are like right next to each other, so I would consider this a common mistake. So if you do happen to find yourself in this 'SDicky situation' here is what you need to do.

1) Check that the SD card hasn't fallen right into the depths of the CD drive.
- Get a paper-clip and bend it into an 'L' shape. It should 'hook' neatly onto an SD card.
- Insert carefully towards the upper half of the SD card and bring down towards the bottom of the CD slot.
- If the SD card is here you will feel it - in which case just give it a tug and it should come out with the paper-clip grabber

2) If you cannot feel the SD card, then it has most likely fallen out of reach.
- At this point, turn the mac off and unplug it from the wall.
- As unorthodox as it sounds, pick up the computer and turn on it's side, with the SD/CD slots facing towards the ground.
- Carefully, give it a light shake, and hopefully gravity should work it's magic so the SD card will be in reach of our 'grabber'
- Use the grabber to retrieve it.

Speed Up Windows 7 a Tiny Bit.

1) Disabling Search Indexing
- right click on computer icon>click manage
- click 'services and applications' (under the computer management window)
- select 'services'
- scroll down the list and click 'windows search'
- look for the drop-down box next to 'startup type'
- change this option to 'disabled'
Basically all this does is tell the computer to stop keeping files for later on. This is useful if you aren't frequently using the search function to locate files. (download this search utility as a replacement)

2) Download CCleaner
CCleaner - System Optimization
It clears all temp files/unused registry files/logs/cache whatever
Just keeps the computer in a nicer shape i guess.

3) Download Defraggler
Defraggler - Ultimate Disk and File Defrag
Analyzes and Defrags harddrives. Clears out old files and 'fragments' of unused stuff. I think?

My internet speed if you cared...?

U-ziq - Lunatic Harness/Alex Reece - So Far

Neat album from Planet Mu records
I'd say the album isn't consistent all the way through, but the first half songs or so are great. Brace Yourself Jason and Hasty Boom Alert are really good.

Some simplistic drum and bass from the 90's
Try out Pulp Fiction and Feel the Sunshine. Nice jazz lounge feel or whatever the hell you want to call it.
SOZ for filestube link
