6.38 to 6.20 Downgrader w. Tutorial *Updated*

/* Posted May 23rd, 2011 at 2:47pm [Comments: none]    */
/* Filed under PSP    */

Update: some1 has released an updated version of his 6.38 to be compatible with 07g 09g PSP models. The download link has been updated below.

We have been all waiting for something like this!

PSP Developer some1 has today published its PSP OFW 6.38 Downgrader to contribute to the Genesis Competition!

The downgrader works on a original 6.38 FW (HEN or CFW is not needed to downgrade!) and you can downgrade to Firmware 6.35.

It supports all PSP models (1000, 2000, 3000 and PSP Go) except 07g/09g (newer = 3000).
Support for 07G and 09G will be added later by downgrading the PSPs to OFW 6.35 instead of OFW 6.20.
With 07g 09g support added, 07g 09g model PSP-3000s will be downgraded to firmware 6.35, while all other models will be downgraded to firmware 6.20. You will need to include the appropriate firmware updater (either 6.35 or 6.20), which you can download here.

If you have a PSP-3000 and do not know which modules your PSP has installed, you can download and run the PSP Module Checker to find out, then proceed downgrading.

Our well known psp-expert flofrucht wrote a tutorial for us in the PSH Forums. You can view it here.

Little update from some1: (Now with support up to 09g)

The Guitar Lessons app uses simple tutorial videos to teach you the basics.

Nothing, but nothing, can take the place of a good teacher. Especially a good music teacher, like the ones who helped turn my daughter into the amazing piano player that she is. They’re worth every penny.

That said, music lessons can get expensive, and they’re not always easy to work into your schedule. For example, I recently acquired a guitar, but I’ve yet to find the time or spare cash to take lessons.

I do, however, have an
iPad. And with Howcast’s new Guitar Lessons app, I’m getting professional instruction in basic guitar–on my schedule, whenever I can find a free 10-15 minutes. All for just $1.99.

There are other guitar-school apps available for iPad, but so far I’m finding everything I need in this one. It’s basically a collection of 140-plus tutorial videos, all hosted by affable instructor Ivan Max. (They’re all streamed, too, so you’ll need an Internet connection.)

The videos are sorted into 12 categories. In Getting Started, Max shows you things like the parts of a guitar, holding a guitar properly, holding a pick, using a capo, and even what to look for when buying a new or used guitar (both acoustic and electric).

From there you can work your way through Stringing, Tuning, Open Chords, Practicing, and so on. The app cleverly tracks your progress, checking off lessons as you go so you can see at-a-glance which ones you’ve already completed. Plus, you can add any lesson to a favorites list for easy review later. There’s even a search option, a nice touch.

Bottom line: If you want to learn the basics of playing guitar, Guitar Lessons is a convenient and inexpensive solution. It’s no substitute for a live teacher, but it’s a fine first step for novices.


Free Outlook Add-In PocketKnife Peek Reveals Hidden Info

/* Posted May 23rd, 2011 at 2:47am [Comments: none]    */
/* Filed under News    */

Worried that dangers may be lurking in an HTML e-mail you’ve received in Microsoft Outlook? The free PocketKnife Peek lets you see that e-mail in plain text, without any potential HTML dangers such as malicious scripts. And you can use the program to examine other parts of the e-mail as well.

PocketKnife Peek screenshotPocketKnife Peek’s tabbed interface lets you easily read only the text of HTML e-mail in Outlook.PocketKnife Peek integrates directly into Outlook, so when you get a potentially dangerous e-mail, highlight it and click the Peek button. You’ll see four tabs: Plain Text, HTML Source, Internet Header, and Attachments. Click the Plain Text tab, and you’ll see the text of the message, without any associated HTML. The HTML source shows you the actual HTML used to create the e-mail. Internet Header shows all the normal header information, such as sender, recipient, content type, servers, and so on. And the Attachments tab lists all the attachments. Although Outlook lets you see Internet header information and attachments without the use of this program, it’s useful to have all those features in a single location, as it is in PocketKnife Peek.

View the message in plain text and you’ll get the information in the message, without the messiness and potential dangers of HTML. Any HTML jockey will appreciate being able to examine an e-mails to show what scripts are being run, and other information. Those who are knowledgeable about Internet routing will want to examine the Internet Header. Examining routing information can possibly show if the e-mail has been unnecessarily routed to hide its origin. Note that in order to get PocketKnife Peek to work you’ll need to first shut down Outlook, then install PocketKnife Peek, then restart Outlook. You’ll then find the program on the far right of the standard toolbar in Outlook 2000 through 2007, or else on the Add-In Tab on the Ribbon in Outlook 2010.

PocketKnife Peek isn’t a groundbreaking utility. But it’s free and convenient, and simple to use, so it’s a worthy addition to your Outlook installation.

Massive El Shaddai info incoming this week

/* Posted May 23rd, 2011 at 2:47am [Comments: none]    */
/* Filed under Video Games    */

El Shaddai‘s got a lot of news in store for its North American fans. Actually, it’s thanks to Ignition Entertainment’s Shane Bettenhausen that we are privy to these details now.


According to him, an announcement of the game’s release date can be expected this very week, and might even be divulged as early as Monday. Apart from that, fans can also look forward to a demo, at a yet unspecified date.






If you think that’s all, you thought wrong, because he also said that El Shaddai will be coming out with a soundtrack, to be made available via iTunes. As it stands, too, they are also considering coming out with an art book. 

From all these information, it’s very obvious that they’re definitely pulling out all stops for El Shaddai. Hopefully when they do announce the release date, it’s going to be for sooner rather than later.

B-Gen v0.1 released

/* Posted May 22nd, 2011 at 2:46pm [Comments: none]    */
/* Filed under PSP    */


From the Developers okapako and crystalswordsman we have since the PSP Genesis Competition, a new homebrew game called B-Gen.

The concept is a bit difficult to explain, you’re basically playing with a mass that grows if hit by the balls of the same color, and is reduced if the ball is hit by a different color. These balls appear on the screen synchronized with music, so it is very important to be Antentas sound, and would even recommend using headphones.

The graphics are minimalist look, but quite advanced for homebrew that comes from “nothing. ”

Terraria Offers Two-Dimensional Mining, Exploring and Giant Eyeballs

/* Posted May 22nd, 2011 at 2:46pm [Comments: none]    */
/* Filed under Video Games    */

Too many dimensions and not enough insanity for you in Minecraft? Then Terraria might be the game for you.

It’s easy to call Terraria a Minecraft clone, but that wouldn’t be entirely fair — not only because Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Persson has long admitted that his game is a clone of Infiniminer, but also because Terraria takes the Minecraft formula, adds far more materials, monsters and weapons, and whizzes it all up in an enormous videogames blender.

Some additions to the basic mining, exploring and building mechanics include jetpacks, lightsabers, enormous floating skulls and eyeballs, acorns, deathworms, chandeliers, lasers, shuriken, hookshots, meteorites, climbing vines and a mysterious-sounding “cloud-in-a-bottle.” You can find a partial listing on the Terraria message boards.

The game’s picked up a fair bit of attention, selling more than 50,000 copies on its first day at $10 apiece, meaning it has already generated revenues of around $500,000. At the time of writing, it’s second on the Steam charts, ahead of Portal 2, Fable III, Duke Nukem Forever and Fallout New Vegas: Honest Hearts. Only The Witcher 2 is selling better.

If you want to give it a try for yourself, you can pony up $10 for Terraria on Steam. If you’re yet to be convinced, have a look at some of the Terraria videos uploaded by developer Re-Logic on YouTube.

Tips for Choosing the Right Social Media Websites

/* Posted May 21st, 2011 at 8:46pm [Comments: none]    */
/* Filed under SEO    */

Bloggers want to maximize on the traffic received from social media. However, while focusing on popular sites such as StumbleUpon, Digg or Reddit, many bloggers forget that there are hundreds of other available options that might offer a better fit. The following tips can help in assessing social media sites.

Is the submitter’s profile important?

Some social media websites, especially Digg, are impacted by the submitter of the link. Some ‘power users’ have hundreds of friends that follow and vote for their submission. For other sites, the submitter’s profile has very little impact. This is vital for several reasons. First, if the submitter’s profile plays a significant role in the submission’s success, you will need to either build a strong profile to submit your content or find influential users who can submit your content.  Second, sites which don’t favor certain users will value quality content more than the user’s network.

What are the user demographics?

Ideally, you will want to identify a social media website which shares similar demographics with your target audience. Obviously, this will enhance the quality of traffic you receive. Many social media websites usually have users of a particular sex, in a specific age bracket or from a particular geographical location. To identify these factors, you might have to take time on the site and check the profiles of many users. Find out as much as you can about them.

What views prevail?

The audiences of various social media websites usually have different views on various subjects, and some audiences are very passionate concerning specific things. This can either benefit or hurt you. Align your content with popular views and you might see some impressive results. However, writing a post going against the popular opinion may result in a backlash.

What formats are acceptable?

Many major social media websites are accepting video and pictures in addition to standard links. Some sites even have particular categories or sections for different kinds of content. You will need to consider this when determining if your content would be appropriate for a specific site.

Are you able to network with other users?

Networking with other users is a fundamental aspect of social media. Regardless of which website you are targeting, it is very vital to have a strong network of active users. This was one of my key considerations when looking for a social media site to promote my Bistro MD coupons, Diet to Go discounts and Medifast promo code. Having a strong network will not only enhance your chances of receiving traffic, but will also enable you to make great connections. Some social media websites offer better networking chances than others. If one of your objectives is to enhance your network using social media, ensure that your time is spent on websites that make networking easy.

A writer with a particular interest in sharing social media and SEO tips, Charles Mburugu also writes about diet plans for weight loss blogs that share Bistro MD discounts and Diet to Go savings coupons. He currently writes for a diet blog that offers coupon for low carb Diet to Go diet and free shipping coupon for bistro md, two popular meal delivery plans.


Rapid-release idea spreads to Firefox 5 beta

/* Posted May 21st, 2011 at 2:46pm [Comments: none]    */
/* Filed under Uncategorized    */

Firefox logo

Mozilla released a beta version of
Firefox yesterday, its first on a new quick-release plan intended to bring features to browser users and Web developers sooner.

Firefox 5 beta’s big new feature is support for CSS animations, which let Web developers add some pizzazz to actions such as making dialog boxes pop up or switching among photos. Also in the new version is canvas, JavaScript, memory, and networking, according to the release notes and bug-fix list.

That may not sound like a dramatic overhaul for a whole new version number, and indeed it isn’t. Mozilla is following in Google’s Chrome footsteps with a faster release cycle that means new versions arrive more rapidly but the differences from their predecessors are less dramatic. It also means a major change in version number doesn’t mean a major overhaul has taken place.

Mozilla has three main versions of Firefox now: the release version for mainstream users, the beta version with new features under testing, and the most raw, Aurora, a version to introduce those new features. Those three versions correspond to Chrome’s stable, beta, and dev releases. There’s also a nightly Firefox build for those who want to try whatever patches have arrived in the last 24 hours, but it’s most likely to be unstable.

The new process means that whatever is done on a particular schedule can ship in the new version–a more calendar-focused process than feature-focused process. One goal of the approach is to reduce the penalty of missing a train, because with a rapid release cycle, another train should come to the station soon.


“The shift to a rapid release development cycle delivers cutting edge Firefox features, performance enhancements, security updates and stability improvements to users faster,” Mozilla said in its blog post announcing the Firefox 5 beta. “After five weeks of testing on the Firefox Aurora channel, the next version of Firefox is ready for the beta channel.”

Another feature in the new beta is the ability to switch among the various versions of Firefox by clicking “change” in the “About Firefox” dialog box.

Also arriving yesterday was a new beta of Firefox 4 for mobile devices, a version that adds support for a do-not-track technology Mozilla hopes Web sites will embrace to aid those who don’t want their personal behavior or data recorded.

Mozilla also is experimenting with another idea that’s all the rage, a minimalist user interface frame. Firefox 4 did away with some items, such as its menu bar, but an experiment called LessChrome HD does away with just about everything except tabs. (Chrome in this case refers to the user interface items, not Google’s rival browser.) With LessChrome HD, user interface elements such as the address bar pop up when the mouse hovers in the appropriate location.

Chrome, which has long embodied the minimal-UI ethos, has a similar option called compact navigation under way that makes the address bar part of the tab, too, so that a few more precious pixels of Web page are visible. This cnav option is only available on Windows right now and isn’t enabled by default.

With Web applications, it’s important to show as much as possible–especially since those apps can come with their own user interfaces, such as navigation and menu bars. It’s not yet clear yet just how much of the browser interface should be hidden, though; there’s still plenty to do with a browser beyond clicking its tabs, and hiding the address bar by default would doubtless cause another round of griping from those who didn’t like their menu bars and status bars disappearing, either.
