This past week I was randomly browsing the Internet doing some research for my own knowledge, and I came across a nice blog called Opentrackers.org, which is essentially a blog that has the latest news and updates about what private trackers has limited open registrations.
If you are not familiar with private trackers, it is essentially websites that have torrent files for a variety of things, but to get into these websites can be very hard. By this I mean you got to be invited.
if you don’t know anyone who is a member of these private sites, you can never get in…unless there is open registrations!
So to help ease the pain, this blog has a frequently updated list of open private trackers. If you are looking for one to get in and see what you can find, give it a try!

I want to personally wish everyone here who is a fellow reader of the blog a happy new year 2013, and may you keep all your New Year’s Resolutions (if you got any).
For 2013, I will continue to do what I do best, and that is to put emphasis on tutorials. I got a long list of tutorials submitted by the community for my youtube channel vstPower, and maybe depending on the content, I may make similar text tutorials here for the blog.
If a certain video is considered too extreme to put on youtube, don’t be surprised I make a tame text equivalent to put here on the blog. Other than that, if you guys got any requests, comments, feedbacks, or just stories of how the blog or the youtube channel has helped your life over the last few years, by all means, let me know!
Thank you for your support, and let’s get ready for some good times in 2013!

So recently I had a family member ask me if it was possible to share a USB printer between two laptops, without having to disconnect the printer and connect from one laptop to the next.

The other day I was watching a video tutorial my friend was using about how to install custom maps for Call of Duty: World at War. During the video, he was showing the user how to extract these map files from a .rar file, and I noticed that he was using an expired version of the WinRAR shareware version.
It was past the 30 days limit, and it had that annoying nagging screen that prompts you to register/buy the program, otherwise it keeps on nagging you forever.

Are you a google voice user? I am, and one feature I like about it the most is the free SMS texting. Even though I have google voice on my phone, on my tablet, and looking at sms text messages from the web browser, I wanted to know if there was an easier way on my desktop to access all of my google voice functions.
It turns out that there is!
There is a program called GVNotifier that simply does that: it notifies you of new calls, voicemails, and you can even do SMS texting straight from the desktop! Sweet, time to turn off email SMS text notifications.

So these last few days I’ve been working on updating LANipedia v2, and I’ve added a whole bunch of new games since last time I had released the project.
But this time around, I’ve decided to change the way I am collecting and organizing my data. Using Evernote, it has made my life easier in regards to putting the data together, and it has the ability to export my notes into HTML format, which makes life so much easier in regards to making a final website product.
See below screenshot for sneak peak of how I’m using Evernote for LANipedia:
So what do we have? Left hand side you will see my notebook called “LANipedia”. In there, I have sub-notebooks from # all the way to Z.
In the middle, you see the “Notes” where basically each game is its own note. The right hand pane is the actual text information of the note, or in this case, a very specific game.
Next week I’ll make a new video and show off V2! Can’t wait!

So the holiday seasons are over, and you might have gotten new electronics under the tree? If so, what do you do with your old ones? Do you keep them around lying in the dust, recycle them, donate them, or go through the hassle of selling them?

I’ll keep this tutorial short. So I have a Youtube video that shows you how to get the free copy of Daggerfall and install the game. If you missed that video, click here.
For whatever reason, there has been a ridiculous amount of demand from viewers who want to learn how to create a shortcut such that if they use a shortcut from the desktop, the game starts without them having to type in code all the time. Rightfully so as I’m here to make your life a little bit easier.
I re-installed the game recently to test the shortcut method, and I was able to get a working shortcut within 5 minutes, and now you can too! Let’s do this!

Did you know that if you are a Windows 8 Pro user right now, and that if you wanted to get the Windows Media Center package, you can get it for free for a limited time with an upgrade key through January 31st, 2013?
Yup, its true. If you go to the link at the end of this blog article, all you got to do is enter in your e-mail address, and within 72 hours, an activation key is sent to you. I got mine within a minute of submission.
Now I’ve been scouring the Internet for last few minutes, and I’m not 100% sure if you can use the Windows WMP upgrade key from a fresh install of an unactivated Windows 8 Pro or not. I’m thinking yes, but not so sure.
Will the WMP key work if you are upgrading from Windows XP, Vista, or 7? I’m not sure myself on that one either, I can only talk about what the key is meant to do.
If you know the answer, or want to experiment, let us know in the comments! Thanks!
