Cracking RapidShare

Have you heard and use Rapidshare before? Well, Rapidshare has been an excellent tool for sharing large files. I'm a regular user of it, mostly for E-book download. If you use the FREE version, you may feel frustrated for the slow download and limited download within the period. Don't worry, there is always a solution.

Recently many users have discovered ways of bypassing the download limits and skipping the waiting time. Just in case you haven't know about it, here's the step-by-step guide for you. Rapidshare traces the users IP address to limit each user to a certain amount of downloading per day. To get around this, you need to show the rapidshare server a different IP address.

RapidShare is free, easy to use and benefits Internet users like us, cool!

Here are some methods for doing this:

1. Short-Out the JavaScript:

1. Goto the page you want to download
2. Select FREE button
3. In the address bar put the following: javascript:alert(c=0)
4. Click OK
5. Click OK to the pop-up box
6. Enter the captcha
7. Download Your File

2. Request a new IP address from your ISP server.

Here’s how to do it in windows:
1. Click Start
2. Click run
3. In the run box type cmd.exe and click OK
4. When the command prompt opens type the following. ENTER after each new line.
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

5. Erase your cookies in whatever browser you are using.
6. Try the rapidshare download again.

Frequently you will be assigned a new IP address when this happens. Sometime you will, sometimes you will not. If you are on a fixed IP address, this method will not work. To be honest, I do not know how to do this in linux/unix/etc. If this works for you, you may want to save the above commands into a batch file, and just run it when you need it.

If you want, you may download Rapidshare accelerator, which allow you to download multiple files and accelerate the download speed. Use it at your own risk.

3. Use a proxy with SwitchProxy and Firefox:

1. Download and install Firefox if you have not already
2. Download and install SwitchProxy
3. Google for free proxies
4. When you hit your download limit, clean your cookies and change your proxy

4. Use an anonymous service:

Running your system through the tor network should in theory work; however, it is difficult to use and setup. Plus, you allow others to run their evil deeds through your system as well by using this system. Anonymizer 2005 is inexpensive, easy to use, but not free. Other pay services would likely work as well.

5. You can use a bookmarklet to stop your wait times:

1. Open IE
2. Right Click On This Link
3. Select Add to Favorites
4. Select Yes to the warning that the bookmark may be unsafe.
5. Name it “RapidShare No Wait”
6. Click on the Links folder (if you want to display it in your IE toolbar)
7. Click OK
8. You may need to close and reopen IE to see it
9. Goto rapidshare and click the bookmarklet when you are forced to wait

Okay folks, that's all for my sharing in this post. Happy downloading via RapidShare. Selamat Hari Raya, maaf Zahir Batin!

This solution brings much convenient to end-users to backup their data online.

Okay, basically I'm using a free online storage solution since a couple of months ago. It's brilliant and beyond my satisfaction. What amazed me is that, it can automatically backup and sync the data up to 2 computers. The application will helps you store the current version of each file, and also the previous 2 versions. Fantastic! In addition, this free plan provides you up to 2GB of online storage. Yes, SugarSync is offering this package for FREE to everyone, including mobile user. So just try it out and let me know how satisfy you are.

Anyway, this free plan has some limitations, including backup and sync an unlimited computers, unable to store more than 3 past version of file, it isn't as speedy as paid plan, and only up to 2GB data. Well, if you really like it, you can always go for the paid plan to overcome these limitation. You can even FREE to try for 30-days with the paid plan, before you really subscribe for it. You even entitled to downgrade back to 2GB free plan right after that enjoy the 30 days free trial.

Bike Innovation

Do you like cycling? It doesn't matter you to like or not, because you just won't used any energy via cycling with this new bike.

Due to the heavy traffic congestion around the main cities almost everywhere in the world, something has to come up to alleviate the traffics, including bike, which is totally environmental friendly. From what I've been told, many Europe countries are starting to use bike as their transportation, to avoid traffic jam. Well, if you yet to know, China and Japan started to use this transportation since ages ago, until now.

This should be perfect, as it can help us exercise while avoid the vehicle traffic congestion. Perhaps it will makes us a little bit tired and slow to reach the destination. And the worst thing is, it's not really applicable in South East Asia and Africa, due to the warm weather condition, as well as there is no special track for the bicycle which can be very danger.

So there is a brilliant guy from UK came out with a bike which designed to overcome some drawbacks above, excluding weather issue. :) Basically the bike can run up to about 19kmph, by using electric motor. The biker will just need to sit upright and steer the hands at his/her side. It is light and able to fold into a bad at 22lb, for us to carry around anywhere. The battery can be recharged as well, and last up to about 10km.

Well, of course, there are some limitation at the moment, including short lifetime of 1,000 charges, yet to be legal and it's expensive.

In conclusion, I think the inventor did a good job here. What do you think?
