Ensure your uTorrent’s preference is set to show a windows that displays the files inside the torrent in advanced mode.

Download a torrent file and add it into your bittorent client (UTorrent).

  1. 1.       Download a torrent file and save it on your desktop (or anywhere which is convenience to you). (I am gonna download a One Piece torrent file and save it on my desktop.)
  2. Double click the torrent file (as for my case, it is One Piece[torrent.jiwang.cc]). This will open uTorrent’s Add New Torrent window.

Select file that you want to download and skip the rest. In this case I want to download everything but episodes 1 until 404. In other word, I only want to download episode 405 onward plus its OVA, Film etc.

  1. Under the Torrent Contents’ field, uncheck file or folders that you want to skip (don’t want to download).
  2. Click OK button.

Done.

Chrome’s Keyboard Shortcuts

Posted: April 28, 2011 in Internet, Software

If you’re not much for the mouse, you’re in luck: Google Chrome has lots of built-in keyboard shortcuts, many of which mirror Firefox’s—so you don’t have to retrain your fingers. Here are a few of our favorites:

(Chrome only) Ctrl+B toggles the bookmarks bar on and off.
(Chrome only) Shift+Escape opens Google Chrome’s Task Manager.
Ctrl+L to move your cursor to the address bar.
Ctrl+K moves your cursor to the address bar to enter a Google search.
Ctrl+T opens a new tab.
Ctrl+N opens a new window.
Ctrl+Shift+T opens the last closed tab.
(Chrome only) Ctrl+Shift+N opens a new window in “Incognito Mode.”
Ctrl+Tab cycles through open tabs; Ctrl+Shift+Tab reverse cycles through open tabs.
Ctrl+J opens the Downloads tab.
Ctrl+W closes the current tab.
Ctrl+R refreshes the current page.
Ctrl+H opens the History tab.
Alt+Home loads your homepage.
Ctrl+1 through 9 switches to a particular open tab position.
Ctrl++, Ctrl+-, Ctrl+0 Enlarges, reduces, and restores default text sizes, respectively.

Like FF4 beta but tired with its non-stop feedback request? Wanna remove it?

It pretty simple actually. I was seriously LOL when I discover this one. That feedback thinggy actually is a FF extension (aka add on). So remove it from add on panel (or stop it) and you are good to go.

Click on Firefox orange button (top left) –> Add Ons –> Click on Disable or Remove at Feedback 1.0.x.

Thats it.

Tweak Firefox

Posted: February 10, 2011 in Internet, Software

Firefox 4 Beta 11 just out. Out of curiosity, I install and compare with my fav browser, the Chrome.

Out of the box, Chrome is faster but after some minor tweak, this fox could performs a little bit better than Chrome, although not by huge margin.

Type about:config

Find these three things:

  • network.http.max-persistant-connections-per-server   –> 4
  • network.http.pipelining –> true
  • network.http.pipelining.maxrequest –> 8 is recommended. But you may increase it to 32 or more. (Note: Don’t be too selfish :p )
  • network.http.proxy.pipelining –> true

That’s it.
