How to get image URL?

Hmm..another simple tip for Blogspot user. This time, I'd like to show you how easy it is to get the image URLs in Blogger. As we know, all images that we've uploaded through the blog post was stored in Blogger database. And of course, you can delete them.

But why do you need the image URLs?

There are several reasons:-
  • To place the image permanently on your blog sidebar
  • To get the full size image (I used it in my tutorials section)
  • Use it for blog background image
  • Submit the URL to forum, email, comment box etc..
and so on..

As for example, I've upload my Gmail signature (image above). And this is what I got in the HTML mode:-

<a onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href="
"><img style="margin: 0px auto 10px; display: block; text-align: center; cursor: pointer;" src="
" alt="" id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5145511924620891810" border="0" /></a>

As you can see, there are two image URLs above; red and blue.

When and how to use it?

If you want to submit the URL to forum, email or comment box, use the red one. Just place the URL directly to the forum textarea.

And if you want to use it as an image for your blog sidebar or background, use the blue one. To use it, simply paste it in this single line code:-

<img src="blue URL" />

See, it's easy right?

Other than that, the top reason why you should use the image in is that it has an unlimited bandwidth. It's different from your uploaded image in Google Pages, where it has a limited bandwidth.

I think that's all for now. Still working for my new blog template. Hehe..

Desktoptopia - Feed your creativity

Desktoptopia is a desktop background manager for the Apple Mac user. I'm a Windows user for sure but that's not the point.

As a designer(not really), I'm really impress of all the artworks right there and feel some kind of envy when looking at their high quality design.'s look that I'm still far behind them. I'm still thinking the best way to improve my skills and really hope that I can find a job in the graphics designer area. It was a pretty tough to compete with a lot of skillful designers out there.

By the way, I've decided to submit my design at Desktoptopia next time. Hope they will accept my artworks. Hehe..

That's all for today!!! Have fun!!!

How to delete image or picture in Blogger?

"Oppsss...I have uploaded a wrong picture!! &^%#&#!!" sounds familiar. It also happened to me. It's not a big deal if you've upload a 100kb or 300kb image. But, how about 3mb or 5mb? As we know, Blogger only provide 1024mb free space to store your picture.

Of course, you can delete your new post including the image that you have just uploaded. Then, how about the old posts? Do you want to delete them just because it has the photo of your old fashion hair style??

No worries guys. Normally all images that we have uploaded was stored in the database. And the only way (I guess) to access all of them is in the Picasa Web Album. Just open that link. You'll see the Albums based on how many blog you've created. If you have created 3 blogspot blog using the same account, then you should have 3 Albums.

If you still confuse on how to use the Picasa Web Album to delete your image, just follow these simple steps:-

Step 1

Click to your blog's Album which you want to delete a picture on it. You may see something like below:-

Note: If you want your image to display a little faster, just click on the Size: Small Thumbnails (on the right side of the page)

Step 2

Click on the image that you want to delete. The image should be in a single page right now. Go to the right sidebar menu and click Delete this photo.

You will see a confirmation message. Press Ok to delete your picture. DONE.

Note: The picture will no longer appear in your blog.

This step was useful if you only want to delete one image. If you want to delete a multiple images, go to Organise (image on step 1). Then you will see a thumbnails images. Hold down the Ctrl key and click on multiple photos to select them. After that click the Delete button. As simple as that.

The advantage of deleting your image is that you can save a lot of space in your blogger account. Another good tips to save your image space is try to use the .gif file format instead of .bmp and resize your image to 300x300px or 400x400px.

From May 23, 07 until now, I'm currently using 5MB (0.56%) of my 1024 MB storage with 257 uploaded photos.

That's all for today!!!

Note: You also can purchase additional storage from Google if you have out of free space.

Sophos JEEFOGUI – Powerful tool to remove W32:Jeefo

Woww!! What else can I say about this tool!!! Sophos JEEFOGUI is the powerful tool to remove, repair and stop the troublesome W32:Jeefo virus from running in your system. Full thanks and credits to whoever behind the development of this handy software. Yea, it’s totally free to use.

If you have no idea about W32:Jeefo virus, I will tell you a little bit info about it. W32:Jeefo infects all of Windows PE executables with an extension of .EXE and a filesize greater than 102,399 bytes, in all folders of all fixed drives C: to Z:. Other than that, it runs continuously in the background, infecting files at periodic intervals with no mercy.

Take a look at the screenshot below (I used Avast Antivirus to scan all my drives):-

It was really annoying and pissed me off. For those who have the same experience like me and don’t know how to get rid of it might be take a painful step to format drive C: and delete manually all the .exe files. And after that, they have no choice but to reinstall all Windows, drivers, software and they have to download all their favorite games including Pac Man (maybe).

Ok, this is how I get rid of W32:Jeefo using JEEFOGUI.

Step 1

Stop the antivirus software from scanning and close it. Download tool (Yes, it has .com extension). Run this software and click Accept.

You will see a simple interface and without wasting any time, click on the green GO button to start scan all your drives. It will start detecting infected files and at the same time, it will repair/remove/disinfect the infected files automatically. See image below:-

Step 3

Close JEEFOGUI after it already finished scanned and disinfected the files. Ok, now we have to turn off the System Restore.

Note: This will delete any previously created restore points.

For Windows XP user (I’m not really sure for Win 98/ME user), simply go to your Desktop > right click on My Computer icon > Properties and select the System Restore tab (or Windows+Pause/Break and select System Restore tab). Now check the Turn off System Restore on all drives checkbox, click Apply and click Yes. See image below:-

After that uncheck that same checkbox (to turn it on), click Apply and click OK. See image below:-

Restart your computer. DONE.

Right now, you can run all your program/.exe files without any worries. Yeahh..that’s all!

Optional: You can use Sophos Anti-Virus to protect your computer against the latest viruses.

DirectVobSub - Displaying subtitle in Real Media file

Back then, I never think about installing any subtitle tool anyway. It's because of all my downloaded movies was in .avi extension. Just open the movie file using the VLC player, and everything would be fine including the codecs and subtitle file.

Yesterday, I just downloaded the Real Media movie file with .rmvb extension including the subtitle file. As mentioned before, I never used their software (Real Player) since I found Real Alternative.

I tried to open the rmvb file but it failed to load the subtitle. Finally, I install the DirectVobSub and reopen my Real Media file. And, tadaa!! It loads the subtitle file!

I never know whether this tool is working on other file extension such as .rm, .ra or .ram. It should be. But, one thing for sure is that your subtitle files should have the same filename as your video file (for example movie.avi, movie.idx, movie.sub, movie.txt) and should be in the same folder (directory) as your video file. Then the subtitles will automatically be displayed in media players.

I think that's all for today.

Feel free to download DirectVobSub.

Note that this is a new version of DirectVobSub (VSFilter). Use the old version only if you have problems with the newer versions of DirectVobSub, which are also included in the K-Lite (Mega) Codec Pack.

SpeedFan - Access temperature sensor in your PC

SpeedFan is a hardware monitoring software that is able to change fan speeds according to system temperatures. SpeedFan can read S.M.A.R.T. values (and temperatures) from your hard disks and change the FSB speed.

Hmm..This tool was very powerful. Why? Rather than normally shows your system or hardware temperature, it also can be an overclocking tool. I don't really expert on overclocking stuff, but I think that maybe you'd like to know your CPU temperature while playing a heavy PC games.

Take a look of the screenshot below:-

Image above shows the temperature of my current system right now. As you can see, it has Temp1, Temp2 and Temp3. What the hack was that? And of course, HD0 is obviously for my hard drive temperature. I make a quick search through Google and have found out an easy way to know which temperature it is belong to.

Just download this software, Everest Corporate Edition. This software will define which temperature is belong to Temp1, Temp2 and Temp3. After installing this software, go to Computer > Sensor. It should tell you your temperatures.

Ok, lets take a look at this screenshot:-

Now, compare to the image before that. Right now I'm pretty sure that:-

Temp1 = Aux
Temp2 = Motherboard
Temp3 = CPU

According to Lavalys, there is no standard for sensor registers layout, so the "Aux" temperature could show the temperature of the CPU or the motherboard, or might be a non-connected wire of the sensor chip, and so it could show a bogus value.

Ok, enough talking about that, lets see its technical details:

Windows XP - Customize Folder Background

Ok, just a simple Win XP tip for today. If you have an experience using Windows 98 before, you will notice that there are an option or wizard to customize and change the folder background image. Unfortunately, this cool feature does not exist in Windows XP. No worry, in this short article, I will show you how easy it is to customize your folder background in XP.

Step 1

First thing first, download this utility tool, IESHWIZ

Step 2

After that, extract to C:\Windows\System32 folder. This zip file will extract the ieshwiz.exe file into System32 folder.

Step 3

Next, open a command prompt (Windows+R and then type cmd, press ENTER), and type:-

IESHWIZ <path:\foldername>

E.g:- To customize the "test" folder in drive D:, type IESHWIZ D:\test and press ENTER.

Note: In this tip, I will using the "test" folder in my local drive D:

Step 4

You will see a popup window and something like below:-

Select the Choose a background picture. Click Next.

Step 5

I will make some settings like below:-

I used my dX-Vista Maniac as a background image..hehe..Click Browse and you can select either a .bmp, .jpeg or .gif image. Click Next and Finish.

Done. Now go to the "test" folder in D: and you can see if the changes are applied.

All of the these settings are stored in a file named Desktop.ini within that folder. You can read more about Desktop.ini on MSDN website.

Note: If you want to remove all the settings that you've made before, simply follow the step above from Step 1 to 4. But in Step 4, please select the Remove Customization. Click Next and Finish.

*Another alternative that I've just found out was, you can extract the file in the folder which you want to make a changes. Just run the ieshwiz.exe file and start the customization. E.g:- Extract the into our "test" folder.

That's all for today! Yeahh!!

Blogger - Add favicon image

Ok..a quick blogger tips for today. It was really easy to apply a favicon image to your blog. Don't ask me what the heck is favicon.

Gspace - Turns your Gmail account into free online storage

Yeahh...the title says it all. Gspace is another great Firefox extension. This extension allows you to use your Gmail space for file storage. It acts as an online drive, so you can upload files from your hard drive and access them from every Internet capable system.

I have installed this extension and try to upload some image and it was really cool. It has a simple user friendly interface, make it easy to use. I highly recommend you to create a new Gmail account if you really want to use this extension. can mix the uploaded files with other email messages, but it is much more better if you have a specific account for it.

The best thing about this extension is, you can manage a multiple Gmail account in the same interface and its more looks like..hmm..lets see..a "multiple mini online hard disk". Maybe you'd like to create a new account and just use it for your college/assignment stuff and other is for your personal stuff. And of course, you can download that file anytime, anywhere.

Other than that, I also recommend you to use the portable Firefox. It will store any installed extensions in Firefox with you wherever you go. Pretty handy.

I still never know the maximum file size that can be uploaded. As far as I know, Gmail can handle an upload file up to 20MB per message. Please tell me if you have any experience of using this extension.

  • Do not upload/download many files in a single day. You may get your account blocked for 24 houres. It seems this happens if more that 1GB of data is transferred in a single day.
  • The best thing is to upload files and folders that are NOT critical. Anyway, since file is available as an attachment on an e-mail, they will always be available through the Gmail interface, and they should be as safe as your e-mails.
Feel free to install the Gspace.

That's all for today!!!
