I recently had to recover a password for a friend who purchased a Windows 8 Computer, however forgot the password that he had created for his account. He did not have a recovery CD, so I figured I would attempt to recover the password. This account was linked to his online Microsoft account, therefore I asked him to go online from another computer and try to recover his online password however, he was unable to do that also. Anyhow, it’s really easy to recover, delete or change your Windows Password.
I take no responsibility if you mess up your computer, and please do not use this for illegal purposes. Anyhow, I will show you a few ways to recover your password below.
What is a Delimited File?
A delimited file is a file where the data is separated by special or unique characters. The most common form of a delimited file is the .CSV (Comma separated values) file format. These files, as you can guess, have the data separated by commas (
,). For example, you can save an Excel spreadsheet document as an .CSV file and it will separate all the fields with a comma. Other examples of delimited files include .TSV (Tab separated values), quotation marks, or really any other File that has a unique character (or character pattern) that separates actual data (words, phrases) that you need to utilize.

Creating A Sublime Text 3 Plugin
In this article, I want to share with you how to create a basic Sublime Text 3 plugin (or package). Sublime Text 3 (ST3) comes with a running ‘Hello World’ plugin example, however, if you have read any of my previous posts, I am not a big fan of simple ‘Hello World’ applications. I will, however, walk you through setting up the ‘Hello World’ plugin and then we will create our own Sublime Text 3 plugin named ‘Webify’. ‘Webify’ will replace the less than (< ) and greater than (>) signs in your block of code to
&gt;, also referred to as HTML Entities.
Handlebars + Express JS + Node JS
Today I’m going to show you how to create an ultra simple Express JS server application and use the Handlebars framework to handle “modularization”. To follow along, please make sure you have Node and NPM configured on your machine. If you don’t have the required applications, read my Setup Node JS and NPM Tutorial. The following tutorial will introduce you to Handlebars (for templating), and ExpressJS. By the end of this tutorial you should have an basic understanding on how to create an application/website with what I like to call HEN (Handlebars, Express JS & Node JS) stack. 😉
Sublime Text 3 is available for: WindowsLinuxMac/OSX
Did you know you can use Google to located your Android phone?
This feature has been around for years now, however it seems that a lot of people either don’t know about it, or just forget to use it. I’m going to quickly go over how the setup your phone so you can locate it next time using Android Device Manager.
First, you have to enable “Remotely locate this device” option and “Allow remote lock and erase”. To do this, simply find the app that says “Google Settings” and go to “Security”. Also, make sure “Location” is turned ON as well.

IrfanView is a small, efficient, yet powerful utility used to view and manage image files. It supports various image formats, which Windows may not support natively. For example, IrfanView supports gifs and ico file types. For more information about IrfanView, please visit: IrfanView Website
Lets say we have 5 tif image files that we need to convert to a single multi-page file for email or whatever other reason you may have. This process is very simple.
What is Malware?
A lot of people throw around the term “malware” and don’t really know what exactly malware is. Malware is short for “malicious software” and encompass viruses, trojans, worms, adware, bloatware, etc (see below). Therefore a Virus is technically a type of malware. An easy way to remember is if you took Spanish in high school, you should remember that “mal” means “bad” in Spanish. The “ware” part comes from the word “software”. Put them together and you have “bad software”. “Malicious” and “bad” are synonyms. Therefore malware is any malicious application that is installed (with or without the users knowledge) that can be used to wreak havoc on the end computer, or compromise sensitive user information.
It is impossible to browse the internet these days without running into advertisement. However, developers spend a lot of time putting together their website, and they deserve that money, right? Right…but not when they abuse their “power”. That’s right, some developers misuse advertising and get greedy, and cover your screen with more ads than actual content and popups. Don’t you hate those pop ups? You accidentally click the wrong link and before you know it, your computer is full of popup ads!
