Installing ADOBE FLASH without DLM (Block THEM!)

Adobe Flash WAS great!
Nowadays, they will "accidentally" FORCE you to install anti-virus (NORTON or whatever in the future) and their DLM or Download Manager.

Whats so bad about that?
  1. I already have a good FREE AVAST antivirus Home edition! Avast is great!
  2. I already have an extremely good download manager that can suck those internet juices easily!
Having multiple antivirus can cause havoc in my system. They are fighting with each other causing my machine to freeze. Uninstalling them are a big headache! Especially unwanted antivirus ~ because they are not good and most people don't want them.

Having Adobe DLM? What a joke. I don't need Adobe DLM.

To download Flash Latest Player for Windows directly, Just go here.. http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player.exe

Thats the .exe. Download, click and run.

The second thing, after installing Flash Player will want to know what are you browsing (movies). BLOCK THEM!

In Windows, go to C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc
Theres a file called "hosts" right click > properties, and uncheck "read-only"
Edit the file in notepad..
add:    adobe.com    www.adobe.com

Your file will look something like this..

# Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
# For example:
#     rhino.acme.com          # source server
#     x.acme.com              # x client host       localhost
# Start of entries inserted by Spybot - Search & Destroy    adobe.com    www.adobe.com
..and more.. if any.

Save the file and restart. You won't be able to go to adobe.com anymore ~ so does other sneaky Flash. If you want to be able to go to adobe.com. Just open "hosts" file and edit the line that you've inserted before.

Don't forget to re-enable file's "read-only".

Good luck.

Throttle/Slow Digi Prepaid Broadband

A few hours ago..

..at 2350.. I guessed its time to reload my broadband. Went to KK to buy some bread and Nescafe too.
..at 0020.. dialed my reload in.
..at 0022.. get connected! Yeay!

As usual, open up my "Update Manager".. an click update for all!

System updates.. daily chromium, daily edgers, etc.. leave it there.. and started watching "My name is Earl" on TV. After the show ended, I got back to my PC. The net seems very slow tonight ~ something must be wrong.

Damn.. 0230.. still slow. I switched to other OS. Still slow. Wtf! req. 50 mins to watch 8 mins of youtube?!?

Suddenly, I realize there's a SMS on my modem.

"You have reached the 100 MB daily quota. However you will continue to enjoy unlimited Internet usage at 128kbps until the next quota reset at 12am"

I've never received this kind of message before. If i knew. I'll wait.. Ikut suka mak bapak dia je..

Imagine this..
After boot-up,
OS updates: 5~10 MB
Anti-virus/Spam Blocker updates: 5~10 MB
Chrome daily updates: 20~30 MB (development purpose)
Compiler updates: 10~20 MB
Blender latest svn build: 10~20 MB

Finally, I only have 10 MB to surf with 384 kbps. 128 kbps for the rest ~ can't even watch video on youtube! 128 kbps as announced, the actual speed is only 70~80 kbps. Internet browsiong, download slow giler!
