[Misc. Monday] Win The Battle Against Plagiarism

 plagiarism

Hello again everyone! It’s me, Musicmasteria!

Yes I’m still here…

OK, so with the recent event of some noob stealing one of our ps2 tutorials, I’ve decided to look up some anti-plagiarism tools on the web and share my findings here.

SOME ANTI-PLAGIARISM TOOLS/HELP

More will be added to the list if it is found. This was just a quick search and I’m sure you could find a lot more on the subject if you looked. Post your findings in the comments and I will add it to the list!

Peace,

What It Feels Like To Be Ripped Off – Internet Style

Above is a picture of a ghetto MP3 gadget called “VoSonic” is the correct name I think. I could be long. This was on NewEgg, but not any longer. After closer inspection, you can clearly tell it is a rip off of the Apple iPod 4G. Click wheel anyone?

Anyway, this post is not me ranting about the iPod clone, but about my own adventure. I thought I would never live this, but one of my tutorials on this blog was referenced in another forum, with no credit given to the writer, Versatile1.

The tutorial in question: [How To] PS2 game from torrent to DVD using DVD Decrypter

This tutorial shows you how you take a PS2 game from a torrent, and burn it correctly to a blank DVD using Nero.

Now I’m a large supporter of Afterdawn.com, and yesterday browsing the PS2 DVD backup session, I find this thread:

http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/3/444613#3856718

User “Liltam” had the nerve to basically copy and paste my words and my pictures into his post, with no sign of even giving credit to The Underground. (He even had the balls to edit some words out to make it not obvious). I’m partly happy and angry at the same time.

So what’s an author to do?

Simple.

  • Watermark my images.
  • Rename the images so Liltam pictures are broken.
  • Extreme option: Fix the current tutorial to point to new pictures, but upload some pictures that would ban Liltam from the Afterdawn forum since his post will be redirecting to my original file names. Hehe, oh man would that be fun and evil at the same time!

What if I redirected all of “Liltam’s” PS2 pictures to the one below? Oh man, what a riot!

If I get at least 3 commentors egging me on to do it, I’ll do it! So what are you ready for? Let Versatile1 have his payback. :)

Sometimes, a little privacy is required to view ’sensitive’ or ‘personal’ material. Need I say more?  I think this is hilarious!

[How To] Make WinRAR Not Recognize ISO Files

This post is dedicated to commentor “Harrison”, for it is about time I talk about this than never at all. As we all know, lots of files on the Internet that can be downloaded will need to be extracted by some kind of unzipping utility.

There are a lot of good programs like 7zip, Winrar, WinZip, and WinAce. I use WinRAR because its easy, and I have a free corporate edition from the company a long time ago. :P

Now, the problem I see occurring in the PS2 threads are people who download an ISO file, and by the act of God, believe that what they have isn’t an ISO file, but a regular RAR or similar compressed file. Well, guess what? You have WinRAR associated with your ISO files, and because of this, you are unzipping the ISO file when you really shouldn’t.

This is how you can fix the situation:

1) Open WinRAR.

2) Go to Options -> Settings.

3) Go to the Integrations tab.

4) Unselect ISO checkbox if it is checked and select OK.

WinRAR Settings

Now you are done! No more confusion. Good luck on your unzipping journey. :P
