San Francisco California, a place of thousand faces.

The golden Gate Bridge

Summer of 2013, we went on vacation, and the destination is San Francisco California, There are so many reasons why this place is one of the best tourist destination in USA.

  1. The weather is cold (Perfect place to chill out from the summer heat)
  2. It can be reach by any kind of transportation – plane, car, truck, bus
  3. A lot to see in one place. – stores, restaurants, gift shops, tourist spots
  4. Array of tourist spots. – Golden Gate bridge, Piers, Museum of fine arts, Japanese tea garden, Chinatown, Japantown, Fort point, Colt Tower,  Lombard Street, Steep streets of SF, Alcatraz island, Haight Asburry St.
  5. Line of shopping places.  – Westfield, Union Square, Chestnut Street shopping, Embarcadero Center, Haight street shopping, North Beach etc.
  6. Around the world Gastronomic destinations in one place. – San Tung Chinese Restaurant, Farina Foccacia Italian Restaurant,  Ozuma Japanese Restaurant, Nopa American Restaurant, etc.
  7. Ride a cable car.

I love San Francisco except the traffic and parking spaces. So far, the least friendly place for drivers and big cars as per my experience. Take note, we are tourist and it took us one hour finding a parking spot, and its in a garage. We paid $35 after we checked out. I can’t imagine how it feels when you live there and you own a car. Because the roads are narrow, it is usual that you see cars parked on the side of the road with broken side mirrors, dented doors, loosed bumpers or even totally wrecked. As per my count, I saw four cars with situation mentioned above.

We will be back next time since we never got a chance to visit Alcatraz which is our main goal in San Francisco. We didn’t expect that we can’t do a walk-in tour. The  tour to the island is fully booked until 3 weeks from our visit. For those who are planning to visit San Francisco and your main destination is Alcatraz, check online the available tour dates of Alcatraz before booking your trip to San Francisco.  Here’s my list of tourist places to visit in San Francisco.

1. Japanese Tea Garden  -

The Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco, California, is a popular feature of Golden Gate Park, originally built as part of a sprawling World’s Fair, the California Midwinter International Exposition of 1894. For more than 20 years San Francisco Parks Trusts’ Park Guides have given free tours to San Francisco Parks trust members,[1] providing context and history for this historic Japanese-style garden.

The oldest public Japanese garden in the United States, this complex of many paths, ponds and a teahouse features native Japanese and Chinese plants. The gardens 5 acres (2.0 ha) contain many sculptures and bridges.

2. Golden Gate Bridge –

The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate, the opening of the San Francisco Bay into the Pacific Ocean. The structure links the U.S. city of San Francisco, on the northern tip of the San Francisco Peninsula, to Marin County. It is one of the most internationally recognized symbols of San Francisco, California, and the United States. It has been declared one of the Wonders of the Modern World by the American Society of Civil Engineers.[7] The Frommers travel guide considers the Golden Gate Bridge “possibly the most beautiful, certainly the most photographed, bridge in the world”.[8]

3. Palace of Fine Arts -

The Palace of Fine Arts in the Marina District of San Francisco, California, is a monumental structure originally constructed for the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition in order to exhibit works of art presented there. One of only a few surviving structures from the Exposition, it is the only one still situated on its original site. It was rebuilt in 1965, and renovation of the lagoon, walkways, and a seismic retrofit were completed in early 2009.

In addition to hosting art exhibitions, it remains a popular attraction for tourists and locals, and is a favorite location for weddings and wedding party photographs for couples throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, and such an icon that a miniature replica of it was built in Disney’s California Adventure in Anaheim.[3]

Some troubleshooting guide on fixing computer that won’t turn on!

pcwontboot Starting the day with a computer that won’t turn on is very frustrating. There are many reasons why a computer won’t turn on and often very few clues about what might be the problem. The only symptom is usually the simple fact that “nothing works” which isn’t much to go on.Add to this the fact that whatever is wrong could be an expensive part of your PC to replace – like the motherboard or CPU. Do not fear because all may not be lost! Here’s what you need to do:Read #1 below (it’ll make you feel better). Pick the best troubleshooting guide (#2 – #9) based on how your computer is acting or #10 if your PC stops at any point because of an error message.Note: All of these “computer won’t start” troubleshooting guides apply no matter what Windows operating system you have installed on your hard drive, including Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP. Steps 1 through 5 even apply to other PC operating systems like Linux.

Do not fear because all may not be lost! Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Read #1 below (it’ll make you feel better).
  2. Pick the best troubleshooting guide (#2 – #9) based on how your computer is acting or #10 if your PC stops at any point because of an error message.

Note: All of these “computer won’t start” troubleshooting guides apply no matter what Windows operating system you have installed on your hard drive, including Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP. Steps 1 through 5 even apply to other PC operating systems like Linux.

1. Don’t Panic! Your Files are Probably OK

Files and Folders - Your Files are Probably OK

When faced with a computer that won’t start most people tend to panic, worried that all the data on their PC is gone forever.

It’s true that the most common reason a computer won’t start is because a piece of hardware has failed or is causing a problem but that hardware isn’t usually a hard drive, the part of your computer that stores all of your files.

In other words, your music, documents, emails, and videos are probably safe – just not accessible at the moment.

So take a deep breath and try to relax. There’s a good chance you can figure out exactly why your computer won’t start and then get it back up and running.

2. Computer Shows No Sign of Power

Computer Shows No Sign of Power

Try these steps if your computer will not turn on and is showing no sign at all of receiving power – no fans running and no lights on the computer case.

Important: You may or may not see a light on the back of your PC depending on the kind of power supply you have and the exact cause of the problem.

Note: Don’t worry about the monitor yet. If the computer is not turning on because of a power issue then the monitor certainly can’t display anything from the computer. Your monitor light will likely be amber/yellow if your computer has stopped sending information to it.

3. Computer Powers On… and Then Off

Computer Powers On and Then Off

Follow these steps if, when you turn your computer on, it promptly powers back off.

You’ll probably hear the fans inside your computer turn on, see the lights on the front of your computer turn on or flash, and then it will all stop. You won’t see anything on the monitor and you may or may not hear beeps coming from the computer before it shuts off by itself.

Note: As in the previous scenario, don’t worry about the state your monitor is in. You may have a monitor issue as well but it’s not possible to troubleshoot it quite yet.

4. Computer Powers On But Nothing Happens

Computer Powers On But Nothing Happens

If your computer seems to be receiving power after turning it on but you don’t see anything on your monitor, try these troubleshooting steps.

In these situations, the power lights will stay on, you’ll likely hear the fans inside your PC running, and you may or may not hear one or more beeps coming from the computer.

This situation is probably the most common in my experience working with computers that won’t start. Unfortunately it’s also one of the most difficult to troubleshoot.

5. Computer Stops or Continuously Reboots During the POST

Computer Stops or Continuously Reboots During the POST

Use this guide when your computer powers on, shows at least something on the monitor, but then stops, freezes, or reboots over and over again during the Power On Self Test (POST).

The POST on your computer may look like the screenshot to your left or may instead simply show your computer maker’s logo.

Important: Don’t use this troubleshooting guide if you encounter an issue during the loading of the operating system, which occurs after the Power On Self Test is complete. Troubleshooting Windows related reasons why your computer won’t turn on begin with #6 below.

6. Windows Begins to Load But Stops or Reboots on a BSOD

BSOD - Computer Turns On But an Error Prevents Windows From Loading

If your computer begins to load Windows but then stops and displays a blue screen with information on it then try these steps. You may or may not see the Windows splash screen before the blue screen appears.

This kind of error is called a STOP error but is more commonly referred to as a Blue Screen of Death or a BSOD. Receiving a BSOD error is a common reason why a computer won’t turn on.

Important: Choose this troubleshooting guide even if the BSOD flashes on screen and your PC restarts automatically without giving you time to read what it says.

7. Windows Begins to Load But Stops or Reboots Without an Error

Windows Begins to Load But Stops or Reboots Without an Error

Try these steps when your computer powers on, starts to load Windows, but then freezes, stops, or reboots over and over again without generating any kind of error message.

The stopping, freezing, or reboot loop may happen on the Windows splash screen as shown to the left or even on a black screen, with or without a flashing cursor.

Note: If your computer won’t start and you see a blue screen flash or remain on the screen, you’re experiencing a Blue Screen of Death and should use troubleshooting guide #6 above.

Important: If you suspect that the Power On Self Test is still going on and that Windows has not yet started to boot, a better troubleshooting guide for why your computer won’t turn on might be #5 above. It’s a fine line and sometimes hard to tell.

8. Windows Repeatedly Returns to the Advanced Boot Options Screen

Windows Repeatedly Returns to the Advanced Boot Options Screen

Use this guide when nothing but the Advanced Boot Options screen appears every time your restart your computer and none of the Windows startup options work.

In this situation, no matter which Safe Mode option you choose, your computer eventually stops, freezes, or restarts on its own, after which you find yourself right back at the Advanced Boot Options menu.

This is a particularly annoying way in which your computer won’t turn on because you’re trying to use Windows’ built-in ways to solve your problem but you’re getting nowhere with them.

9. Windows Stops or Reboots On or After the Login Screen

Windows Stops or Reboots On or After the Login Screen

Try this troubleshooting guide when your computer powers on, Windows shows the login screen, but then freezes, stops, or reboots here or anytime after.

The stopping, freezing, or reboot loop may happen on the Windows login screen, as Windows is logging you in (as shown to the left), or any time up to Windows fully loading.

10. Computer Doesn’t Fully Start Because of an Error Message

NTLDR is Missing

If your computer turns on but then stops or freezes at any point, showing an error message of any kind, then use this troubleshooting guide.

Error messages are possible at any stage during your computer’s boot process, including during the POST, at any time during the loading of Windows, all the way up to the Windows desktop appearing.

Note: The only exception to using this troubleshooting guide for an error message is if the error is a Blue Screen of Death. See #6 above for a better troubleshooting guide for BSOD issues.

How to recover mysql root password in Linux

mysql

I installed my mysql two months ago and got busy afterwards. I already set everything, root password, permissions, cron for dump, phpmyadminl and some other stuffs. Since i got busy, never had a chance to explore and go back until now. But the problem is, i forgot the root password i set.

Recover/Reset and Change Administrator Password for Windows Operating System

I have my computer for 3 years after someone gave it to me. The whole system was been already installed and its ready to be used. Now after 3 years of using it i need to do some stuff that only the superuser administrator can do, even though my own username is an administrator type. Well i tried booting up using the administrator but i don’t know what the password is.  Luckily there are some methods that i can use to recover it. Here are some methods.

DISCLAIMER: Following information should be used only if its your system and you have forgotten account password. Don’t use this information to access a system which is not yours without permission.

1st Method:

This method includes the first thing which should do whenever you forget your Windows login password. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account “Administrator” and sets its password to blank. So if you forget your user account password then try this:

Start your computer and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press <ctrl>+<alt>+<del> keys twice and it’ll show Classic Login box.

Windows_Classic_Logon_Box.png

Now type “Administrator” (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.

Now you can reset your account password from “Control Panel -> User Accounts“.

Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.

2nd Method:

If the above mentioned trick doesn’t work, try following trick which is actually a loophole in Windows XP Setup and also a big security hole:

A. Boot using Windows XP Setup CD and follow the instruction like Accepting EULA, etc.

B. When it asks to repair your existing Windows installation, accept it and press “R” to run the repair.

C. Setup will start repairing your Windows and will start copying files, etc.

D. After a few minutes setup will restart your system and when it restarts don’t press any key when it shows “Press any key to continue…” otherwise Setup will start from the beginning. Don’t press any key and setup will resume where it left.

E. Now it’ll start doing other tasks and will show a small progressbar with a few details in left side.

F. Look carefully at the details and when it shows “Installing devices“, press <Shift>+F10 keys in your keyboard.

G. It’ll open a Command Prompt window. Now type nusrmgr.cpl and press <Enter>.

Remove_Change_Administrator_Password_Using_Windows_XP_Setup.png

H. It’ll open the same “User Accounts” window which you see in Control Panel.

I. Now you can remove or reset any account password without any problem.

3rd Method:

Windows XP and later Windows versions provide a built-in method to recover forgotten password by using “Password Reset Disk“. If you created a Password Reset Disk in past, you can use that disk to reset the password.

If you don’t know how to create a password reset disk, lets tell you in details. You can create the password reset disk using Control panel -> User Accounts applet.

First open Control Panel and click on User Accounts icon. It’ll open User Accounts window. Now click on your user account and then click on “Prevent a forgotten password” link given in left-side pane. It’ll open forgotten password wizard as shown in following screenshot:

Create_Windows_Password_Reset_Disk.png

Follow the instructions and you’ll have a password reset disk in your hand.

4th Method:

You can also use various bootable rescue CDs to reset your Windows password as mentioned in following link:

Download FREE Bootable Rescue CDs from Kaspersky, BitDefender, Avira, F-Secure and Others

There are also a few 3rd party utilities available to help you recover your Windows password such as:

  • UBCD for Windows
  • Ultimate Boot CD (UBCD)
  • Offline NT Password & Registry Editor

You can search for their download links on Google, Bing or any other favorite search engine.

5th Method:

If all fails, then simply reinstall Windows and create new account. To recover lost data, you can use Data recovery tools available on net but the chances will be very low to get data back.

Please post any suggestions if  you found better ways to deal with  forgotten administrator password.

Prison Break Season 1

Prison Break Season 1

Season 1 -The first season follows the rescue of Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell), who is accused of murdering Terrence Steadman (John Billingsley), the brother of Vice President of the United States Caroline Reynolds (Patricia Wettig). Lincoln is sentenced to death and is incarcerated in Fox River State Penitentiary where he awaits his execution. Lincoln’s brother, brilliant structural engineer Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller), is convinced of Lincoln’s innocence and formulates an escape plan. In order to gain access to Fox River, Michael commits an armed robbery which results in his being sentenced to Fox River. In prison, Michael befriends the prison doctor Sara Tancredi (Sarah Wayne Callies) when he pretends to suffer from Type 1 diabetes, in order to gain daily access to the prison’s infirmary. The brothers’ fight to ward off the execution is aided by their lifelong friend Veronica Donovan (Robin Tunney), who begins to investigate the conspiracy that put Lincoln in jail. However, they are hindered by covert agents, members of an organization known as The Company. The Company was responsible for framing Lincoln, and they did so because of Lincoln’s father, Aldo Burrows (Anthony Denison), and his former connections to the company. The brothers, along with six other inmates, Fernando Sucre (Amaury Nolasco), Theodore “T-Bag” Bagwell (Robert Knepper), Benjamin Miles “C-Note” Franklin (Rockmond Dunbar), David “Tweener” Apolskis (Lane Garrison), John Abruzzi (Peter Stormare), and Charles “Haywire” Patoshik (Silas Weir Mitchell), who come to be known as the Fox River Eight, escape in the season finale.

Prison Break Season 2

Prison Break Season 2

Season 2- The second season begins eight hours after the escape, focusing mainly on the eight escapees. Series creator Paul Scheuring describes the second season as “The Fugitive times eight” and likens it to the “second half of The Great Escape.”[5] The fugitives split up and journey to locations across the country with the authorities close behind them as they each pursue their individual goals. Brad Bellick (Wade Williams) gets fired from the prison where he worked as the main guard and chases after the inmates himself for the reward money. Several of the escapees reunite in search of a large cache of money buried long ago by another Fox River inmate, Charles Westmoreland (Muse Watson). Federal agent Alexander Mahone (William Fichtner) is assigned to track down and capture the eight fugitives, but is revealed to be working for The Company, which wants all eight men dead. When Sara discovers her father, Governor Frank Tancredi (John Heard), has been killed, she meets with Michael, remaining with him as the brothers try to bring down now-President Reynolds, a Company member. To ensure the brothers’ safety, Sara allows herself to be arrested and faces trial. During the trial, the testimony of former Secret Service agent Paul Kellerman (Paul Adelstein), who used to work for the Company-controlled President, exonerates Lincoln and Sara. Half of the escapees are killed or recaptured, but the brothers make it to Panama. Michael, T-Bag, Mahone, and Bellick are arrested by the Panamanian authorities and imprisoned at the Penitenciaría Federal de Sona.

Prison Break Season 3

Prison Break Season 3

Season 3The third season follows both Michael inside Sona and Lincoln on the outside in Panama. Sona is a prison that has been run by the inmates and guarded only from the outside due to a riot the year before. Burrows is quickly contacted by Gretchen Morgan (a Company operative who was in charge of operations in Panama) who kidnapped his son LJ (Marshall Allman) and Sara, the woman Michael loves. He is told that The Company wants Scofield to break James Whistler (Chris Vance) out of Sona. The season follows Michael and Whistler’s trials in formulating an escape plan, as Michael has to deal with extreme tension and as Lincoln deals with the Company’s operative Gretchen Morgan (Jodi Lyn O’Keefe). Sucre gets a job at the prison to aid Michael in his escape plan. When Lincoln attempts to rescue Sara and LJ following a clue provided by Sara, Gretchen claims to have beheaded Sara and sends Lincoln a head in a box as a warning. As the season ends, the pair manage to escape along with Mahone, and another inmate, Luis, leaving behind several accomplices including T-Bag and Bellick. Sucre’s identity is discovered by a prison guard and he is thrown into Sona just after the escape. LJ and Sofia (who was captured for a guarantee that Whistler would go with her) are traded for Whistler, and Michael seeks revenge against Gretchen for Sara’s death.

Prison Break Season 4

Prison Break Season 4

Season 4- The major storyline for the fourth season concerns a team recruited by Homeland Security agent Don Self (Michael Rapaport) to obtain Scylla. Although the team initially believes it to be the Company’s “black book”, it is later revealed to contain information on an advanced renewable power cell. Over the course of the first half of the season, the team obtains cards to access Scylla, and breaks into Company headquarters to steal it. In the first half, Sara is discovered to be alive, Bellick dies when he sacrifices himself, and Self is revealed to be a double agent and is planning to sell Scylla to the highest bidder. Reluctantly, Lincoln decides to join the Company to get it back, while Michael suffers from a hypothalamic hamartoma. He is treated and operated on by the Company. Michael later learns that his mother, Christina (Kathleen Quinlan) is still alive and was an agent of the Company, who is revealed to acquire Scylla to sell to the highest bidder. Eventually, the series’ main storyline of the past 4 seasons ends in Miami, where Scylla is recovered by Michael and the team, the General and the Company are taken down, and Sara kills Christina.

The last 2 episodes of the season represent the series finale and aired as the television movie Prison Break: The Final Break. In the movie, a story is told explaining what happened following the take down of the General and the Company and the strange scar on Sara’s shoulder. This story involves the incarceration of Sara in Miami-Dade county penitentiary due to budgetary cutbacks; there are cots installed there acting as the county jail. With Krantz and T-Bag in the adjacent Men’s facility, Krantz wants Sara dead and offers a $100,000 bounty. Michael hears of the bounty and devises plans for Sara’s escape. In the end, knowing that he is dying from a brain tumor, Michael sacrifices himself for his brother, wife and child.

iPad 3 Screen & Glass Repair DIY

broken ipad glass

So you just had your new ipad. Your so happy using it, took care of it and even baby it, and all of a sudden in an unprecedented event it slipped off your hand, your kid throw it, your partner sat on it, or something fell on it. The result, a broken screen. I searched net and saw on one forum the cost  of using apple service center would cost USD 200.00 or more. Wow its almost the amount of getting a new second generation Ipad. And using a third party repair shop costs USD 99.00. Wow, even though its lower than the cost on apple’s service center its still expensive. Unless, you want to do it yourself, there are kits that is available online for as low as USD 40.00. Tedious, but looks tempting. Watch out this demonstration on how to do it yourself.
