How To Guide :: Setup your own IRC Server using a personal, or dedicated system or server. Top Freeware Downloads Included! ::


Setup a IRC Server on your Personal Computer or Dedicated Server!

Overview:

Below you will find a list of IRC server software packages and applications that can be ran on Windows, Linux, or Java, depending on the package you choose to download and use. Our website is hosting the files to this date as organizations like some of the ones listed below, have been known to fall under, due to lack of donations or desire to keep going on with their project. Down the road in the future, the files will still be available to download directly from this website if that should ever happen (Hopefully Not!). You are also able to follow the links associated with the desired applications, and download the most current version of the software from the developers website directly. Their home page website addresses are included in the lists below along with the downloads. All of the Applications and Packages that are listed below, have a Freeware License, or Free for use at the time of writing this article.

Getting prepared to setup a IRC Server yourself:

Before you go downloading and crank through the installation and settings, we recommend you think about a few things before getting started. There are many things you will want to consider before downloading.

* If you plan on running an IRC Server for you and your friends, and up-time, nor speed and reliability are a concern, then you can probably get away with running this on a personal computer in your home.

Why does my fax machine disrupt my VOIP service? Whenever it's plugged in, I lose service. Why?

VoIP service being disrupted when you plug in your Fax/Printer/All-in-one device?


While I was a Technician working for Comcast, I only ran into this problem one time during my entire cable career as a Comcast CDV (Comcast Digital Voice) VoIP telephone installer. The problem is very rare but if it does happen, you will be pulling your hair out trying to figure out how to fix it. This type of problem only effect VoIP service to my knowledge.

What happens is every time you plug your fax machine, or a 'all in one' printer/fax unit into one of your phone jacks or a splitter, you lose all dial tone. Soon as the device is un-plugged, service restores back to normal.

Good News:
The good news is you don't have to buy a new fax/printer device to correct the issue.

Bad News:
The bad news is you will need access to a pair of wire cutters, a uncompressed or virgin phone fitting, and telephone fitting crimpers. If you can't access these type of tools, you can get a pair of cheap crimpers for about $10 and a small bag of telephone fittings for about $5 at the Home Depot or a store similar. No need to buy top of the line tools because you will only need to use the crimpers once to fix this issue. In fact, you could even return the crimpers when your done if you'd like.

How to fix this problem:
I'm not 100% why this happens but I do know how to fix it easily. A standard fax and telephone device only uses (2) out of (4) wires on a phone cord. In your telephone cord which is commonly known as silver satin for it's silver color and smooth texture, you will notice there are a total of (4) tiny wires inside. These (4) wires fit into your telephone fitting with much ease. To stop this problem, we only want two of the wires to go into the fitting and not all (4). Commonly, you would just insert all (4) wires, crimp the fitting and it's ready for use.

Understanding Internationalized Domain Names

You may have been exposed to internationalized domain names (IDNs) without realizing it. While they typically do not affect your browsing activity, IDNs may give attackers an opportunity to redirect you to a malicious web page.

What are internationalized domain names?

To decrease the amount of confusion surrounding different languages, there is a standard for domain names within web browsers. Domain names are included in the URL (or web address) of web site. This standard is based on the Roman alphabet (which is used by the English language), and computers convert the various letters into numerical equivalents. This code is known as ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange). However, other languages include characters that do not translate into this code, which is why internationalized domain names were introduced.

Send free anonymous SMS phone text messages over the internet?

How can I send a SMS cellphone text message to a friend just using the Internet?

I purchased a 1 year contract with Verizon about 9 months ago. I purchased the plan for the same reasons other people purchase them, I got a free phone with it. I just needed something little and I really didn't care about what other features came with it. I was only concerned with size, and the ability to do basic incoming and outgoing calls with the Caller ID feature.

After some time went by (about 9 months), I noticed that my video display wouldn't show any kind of video or picture when I flipped my cell phones top open. Despite that being broken, I could still make incoming and outgoing calls with my phone. This really didn't seem to bother me until I needed a phone number out of my Contacts/Phone Book. Then I really got mad when I noticed I had 6 new text messages but couldn't read a single one!

I decided that it wouldn't make much sense to buy a new phone when my contact ended in about 4 months. So I told myself I would just stick it out with the way it is until that time comes around. A few weeks later, something came up where I had to send a SMS text message to my girlfriends cell phone. I wasn't able to call her because she was at work. Where she works, she is not allowed to take calls while on her shift. I knew that if I sent her a text message she would get it because she always keeps her cell phone on vibrate in her pocket.

GoToAssist Express - What is all the hype about? What can this new innovative utility provide for me or a company?

What makes 'GoToAssist Express' from Citrix so special?



Introduction:

First off, we would like to explain that we have no affiliation with any company or program that we write reviews for. I believe that quality programs and technology should be readily available to all of the general public.

I ran into this program by performing my daily routines at work and catching up on information by reading the companies forums. Normally, when we see something cool or new that is computer or IT related, we'll make a short thread about it telling other employees. After learning that GoToAssist Express is in it's early stages of development. I decided to sign up as a Beta Tester since Citrix has made Beta testing open to the public with this new program of theirs. Their website address is http://express.gotoassist.com/ Beta Testing sign up may still be available if your interested in participating in the program.

How to reset your Wordpress administrator password using various methods. These help you with restoration!

The problem with Wordpress producing invalid link codes in the password restoration feature of the administrator account


A few weeks ago, I helped a client while I was at my job reset his Admin Password for the Wordpress blogging script that he had installed on his hosting account. He was unable to do this because every time he would use the Wordpress email reset feature, he would click on the validation link in his email, and he would get the following error:

"Sorry, that key does not appear to be valid."


There are actually a few things you can do to fix this. From my research it appears this is caused in older versions of Wordpress 2.02 /through/ Wordpress 2.5.1. There is one main method or solution used to fix this. You can easily find these instructions on the Wordpress website. I will also list these below for your convince. There is also another method that I had to use myself in order to successfully reset the admin password. I had to do this because the solution listed on the website, just didn't work in my exact case.

Inside the Wordpress file [wp-login.php], the problem seems to be that the (user_activation_key) field may contain special characters for it's validation codes. These characters will not work with a URL in most cases. When you are sent an email using these special characters, your web browser may not know how to handle it, or the server simply won't produce them in your password reset request emails. This leaves you with a failed result of regaining administrator access to Wordpress.

Question: Why does my computer using Windows XP, keep rebooting or shutdown everytime I turn it on?

Problem:

The computer which is running Microsoft Windows XP Home/Pro keeps shutting back down in the early stages of windows trying to load. The computer could reboot it's self while trying to run a hard disk check (scan-disk scan), the welcome screen, after the desktop loads, or perhaps even when a certain action is taken on your computer.

Good News:
Being able to stop your computer from doing this is very easy. (Most of the time)

Bad News:
This doesn't mean your computer has been restored to a normal use. (Most of the time)

Explanation:

The reason your computer may be rebooting like this, is usually caused because of one of two reasons.

1.) The computer Processor or Power Supply may be over heating. Too much heat can result in permanent hardware damage and boot failure.

2.) Windows is having a conflict or producing fatal errors behind the scenes without showing you any actual error information. These types of errors are known as the 'Windows Blue Screen of Death' more commonly.

In Windows XP, instead of showing you this 'Windows Blue Screen of Death' error on your screen like you might remember on earlier versions of Windows, Windows XP is setup by default to have the computer reboot instead of showing you this error. Why the change? I'm not sure, I can only guess Microsoft thought this new nick name was hurting their business. Who likes the word 'death' associated with a problem with their product?

Question: What is Outlook/WM E-mail client error (0x800C0133) mean? How can I fix outlook to work properly again?

Are you getting an error in Microsoft Outlook Expressing that says this?:

"An unknown error has occurred. Account: 'name', Server: 'mail.yourdomain.com', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800C0133"

The Problem:
You might think it's your ISP's fault or your web host but it's not. This is your fault! Seriously, this error can mean a few things but what the error is complaining about in general is, you have too much email! I have seen this error not to long ago while I was at work answering the ticket system for a pretty popular web host. At first I thought it was the users connection settings because this seems to be the case 99% of the time when a client complains they cannot receive or send email using their email client of choice.

After some talking back and forth, I asked the client if I could look at her computer through a remote session. After I logged in, I played with all the settings and had trouble myself. While I was doing this, I noticed something. She had a ALOT of email, and I mean TONS! Ignoring the obvious when I was troubleshooting this at first. I finally decided to investigate the exact error code provided in the error which was [0x800C013x]. After looking it up on Microsoft's website, it appears this error is populated when the email limit has hit inside Outlook.

1.) Download the zip file, and extract or copy the .DLL file to the same folder where you are running the program from.
2.) Download the zip file, and extract or copy the .DLL file to folder C:\Windows\System32\ then reboot the computer for the changes to take effect. If you don't wish to reboot the computer you can follow method #3 instead.
3.) Perform the same actions in the method2 instruction explained above. Instead of rebooting the computer go ahead and do the following.


Click [Start] -> Run -> Type Command: regsvr32 microsoft.visualbasic.dll -> Click Enter/OK The file should now be installed globally onto the Operating System. If you are still receiving error messages about the same .DLL file you may want to reboot the system just in case.
