Download gAlwaysIdle.exe to make your GTALK Status Always Idle

GTALK is a chatting application of GOOGLE which is very popular due to its simplicity and too much features. It is one of the best and lean instant messengers. Its use has considerably increased with its integration with ORKUT, a social networking site which is nowadays very much famous in all groups of different ages and also a web 18 genius award winner. Yes, its true that you cant play tic-tac-toe or make a buzz or send sounding emoticons or check weathers, however somewhere these not-added features in GTALK makes it too much popular. You can find your GTALK application in your GMAIL too. However, back when GMAIL Chat hadn’t introduced the Invisible mode, there was no way you could remain invisible from your GTALK friends when logged in. However, there is a program called gAlwaysIdle then, and when I am in a mood of “do not disturb me I am quite busy right now”; I just use it to change my status to ‘Idle’ on Google Talk (the yellow icon).

If you are an active user of both Google Talk and GMAIL chat simultaneously then I think you know that Invisible mode doesn’t work when you’re using both. That’s when gAlwaysIdle could home handy. gAlwaysIdle was build by a former Microsoft developer. It enables you to set the status of GTALK client with an extra option of being Idle permanently without actual leaving your computer, preventing unexpected disturbs (people normally didn’t buzz you while you’re not in front of computer). It supports XP SP2 and vista, grab it here and use it.

Decoding Error Messages - Web

As you surf the Net, you will undoubtedly find that at times you can't access certain websites. Why, you make wonder? Error messages attempt to explain the reason for that and other problems. Unfortunately, these cryptic messages baffle most people. We've deciphered the most common ones:

400 - Bad Request

Problem: There's something wrong with the address you entered. You may not be authorized to access the web page, or maybe it no longer exists.

Solution: Check the address carefully, especially if the address is long. Make sure that the slashes are correct (they should be forward slashes) and that all the names are properly spelled. Web addresses are case sensitive, so check that the names are capitalized in your entry as they are in the original reference to the website.

401 - Unauthorized

Problem: You can't access a website because you're not on the guest list, your password is invalid or you have entered your password incorrectly.

Solution: If you think you have authorization, try typing your password again. Remember that passwords are case sensitive.

403 - Forbidden

Problem: Essentially the same as a 401.

Solution: Try entering your password again or move on to another site.

404 - Not Found

Problem: Either the web page no longer exists on the server or it is nowhere to be found.

Solution: Check the address carefully and try entering it again. You might also see if the site has a search engine. If so, use it to hunt for the document. (It's not uncommon for pages to change their addresses when a website is redesigned.) To get to the home page of the site, delete everything after the domain name and hit the Enter or Return key. For example, if the address is:


Remove English/HTML/ email.htm.

503 - Service unavailable

Problem: Your Internet service provider (ISP) or your Internet connection may be down.

Solution: Take a stretch, wait a few minutes and try again. If you still have no luck, phone your ISP or system administrator.

Working with the Vista Index

The new search capabilities in Windows Vista are certainly a significant step up from those in Windows 2000 and Windows XP. For once, you can actually find what you're looking for in a reasonable amount of time. By default, however, the new Vista search feature only indexes the partition where the operating system is installed, which is usually the C: drive. That's fine, unless you have a second partition or second hard drive you use to store your data files. In that case, you have to manually add the second hard drive to the search index. Luckily, it's only a two step process!

Step 1: Turn On the Search Indexing for the Second Hard Drive/Partition

Double click on your My Computer icon, right click on the drive and choose Properties. Then check the box that says "Index this drive for faster searching." Finally, click OK.

For some strange reason, that doesn't actually add the drive to the index, so you have to perform one more step.

Step 2: Add the Drive to the Indexing Options

Go to Start, Control Panel and click on Indexing Options. In the dialogue box, you'll see a list of current locations that are indexed by the Indexing service. Click on the Modify button and check off the second partition or hard drive you want indexed (for example, D:, E:, etc).

If you don't see the drive you're looking for, make sure you press the "Show all locations" button at the bottom of the window. You should then see all of the possible choices:

That's it! Windows Vista will then begin indexing the new location and results from the extra drives will appear in your searches. Now, you can also add network drives to the Vista search index, as long as the drive is a mapped drive. Note that turning on the indexing in Vista is a great way to find files quickly and I would suggest keeping it on all the time. However, you may want to turn it off if your computer seems to be running slow.

Either way, this is an easy way to make your Vista searching even easier!

Hibernation is a feature that allows your system to shut down quickly and save everything that is open in the RAM to be stored on the hard drive until the computer is powered on again.

XP and 2000 use a file called hiberfil.sys to save everything it needs when they go into hibernation. If you never use the hibernate function, you can turn it off.

When this feature is disabled, the hiberfil.sys file is deleted. This can free up the as much disk space as the amount of ram that you computer has. For example, if you have 1GB of RAM, you could be freeing up to 1GB of hard drive space.

In XP, go to Control Panel > Power Options > Hibernation and uncheck / Enable hibernation.

In 2000, go to Control Panel > Power Options > Hibernate / tab and uncheck / Enable hibernate support.

If you should want to re-enable hibernation, go back in and check / Enable hibernation in XP or Enable hibernate support in 2000.
