Windows Security Leaks

Change the guest account into an administrator account.

Give the Guest account a new password using net user.


Getting that ubuntu can't find build-essential, "software center doesn't offer any downloads".
This means that the 'apt' database is out of date so just update it --> sudo aptitude update

Each time i got screen freeze while using ubuntu. the first reaction was to press the restart button.. Big Mistake.
after that the os was unable to start and was asking me to do disk check!!
so the fast solution to this problem is running .. gparted from a live CD to check and that partition..
and think again before forcing a restart next time.

Configuring Adium with Gtalk

If you are having the error message "SSL Handshake Failed" while trying to connect Adium with Gtalk. Try changing the default port from 5222 to 80. This problem is probably caused by the MAC OS X built in firewall that only allow certain ports connection. Hence, the other solution is to manually set Adium to accept incoming connections.
