Viber is Now Available on Computers

So apparently, Viber launched their desktop version back in February, but Yea, I only noticed it last night when I visited the Viber sticker market on my mobile. I saw some stickers with the note *free on desktop. Out of curiosity, I checked the website out this morning and yea… there’s now Viber for Windows, Mac and Linux.

First they came with Viber Out, where  you can make phone calls from Viber to actual phone numbers for a small fee, kind of like Skype. I thought it was a brilliant idea! Now they come up with Viber for computers? I think Viber is trying well to keep up with competition. One thing I love about Viber though it their stickers! It sure does make instant messaging fun 🙂

 

Do you think Viber is getting desperate for attention? Or do you think this was a smart move? I woud like your opinion about this

The Reason Men Constantly Think of Sex

I have been obsessed with TED talks in recent years that I now have about 25GB worth of TED videos, and I now prefer them to watching regular movies.

In my collection, I saw a talk by Mary Jespen about how she experimented on herself in an attempt to regain her intelligence after a brain surgery. Although her talk was NOT about sex or men, in the start of her talk she mentioned how her experiments lead to understanding why young men seem to constantly think about sex.

You know how women seem to get emotional and cranky when they’re hormonal, for instance, link when they’re on their periods? Well, it turns out that the equivalent reaction to men being hormonal (according to me, according to Mary) is arrogance and constantly thinking of sex lol

I have edited the full video so it outlines the section of her TED talk where she explains her experience.

 

The Full video can be found here, if you are interested:

How to Change the Starting Location of Windows Explorer

If you use Windows Vista and above, you must have used the little “Windows Explorer” icon on the Windows task bar. But if you’re like me, you don’t want to always open “Libraries” each time you click that icon.

For me, I usually, more often than not, want to go straight to “My Computer” upon clicking Windows Explorer. In this tutorial, I will show you how to set the starting location of windows explorer to the location of your choice.

Step 1: Right click on the Explorer icon at the task bar

 

Step 2: On the menu that pop’s up, right click on “Windows Explorer” and select “Properties”

 

Step 3: In the properties popup, change “Target” to the desired folder (explanation below picture)

As you can see, I have highlighted the default value. What you have to do is change the the target to the desired folder.

Option 1

To change the default location, simply replace “Target” with the location of the folder you want, for instance “D:\Games” or “C:\Windows” and that’s all!

Option 2
On the other hand, if you want it to open a system folder, you would have to replace Target with the CLSID of the folder you want. For instance, to open My Computer when you click the Explorer icon, change the default value to

%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /n,::{20d04fe0-3aea-1069-a2d8-08002b30309d}

Below is a list of common Windows OS CLSID‘s I found online

Is the quality of Man’s life really a product of his thought life?

Question:

Is the quality of Man’s life really a product of his thought life? Are all the battles won or lost really first fought in the mind? Can a man ACTUALLY move his life from nowhere to the top of somewhere just by changing his thoughts? Hmmm.

Answer:

Well I’m glad that you bring that up. First, consider what it says in Romans 12:2, about transformation through changing your mind (thoughts).

Your thought (and perspective) is everything. If you think that a door is locked, you will not try to get through. If you think a chair will hold you when you sit on it, you will sit comfortably. But if you think the chair is broken and will not hold you, you will not even attempt sitting on it.

You cannot live a life that you cannot first think up or imagine. When someone takes their own life, they think that life isn’t work living. But you haven’t thought that way, hence you haven’t taken your own life.

If you think something is impossible (for instance, to make wealth through legal means) then that mindset will guide every action you make, ultimately. If you think snakes cannot harm you, it will reflect in how you live your life (for instance).

Unfortunately, we are slaves to our thoughts, mindsets and consciousness. Only a few dare to defy that which they already know, and transform their lives by renewing their minds.

It’s Official… Invitation to Publish on LinkedIn

About 2 weeks ago, I talked about the new blogging/publishing platform that LinkedIn was rolling out. Since the project was still in it’s beta phase, they only gave a hand full of people the opportunity to try it out before the rest of the world.

Shortly after I found out about the news, I shared the information here on my blog and I applied. A friend of mine, after reading about it on my blog, applied, and got invited to publish the next day. Well, I wasn’t surprised because she blogs professionally (while I don’t).

Nevertheless, I checked my email this morning to find this
