vJ!:

So now instead of adding TB’s of data just convert your existing stuff to smaller size with little visual losses.

UPDATE: Handbrake 0.9.9 has just been released, introducing numerous UI improvements that makes shit that much easier to do. The support for x264 built in presets almost renders the provided presets obsolete,except that when you use the support for built in presets feature you won’t be able to manually you could tune the features such as deblocking etc. by command line without any aid from the GUI so you run the risk of fucking up if you didn’t enter the values completely correctly, not that it matters that much. The presets provided for 0.9.8 still work in 0.9.9 though, so feel free to download and import them as you would.

Update: I’ve made a small preset pack containing an EXTREME preset for handbrake 0.10 by metaphorically cranking all the sliders to the…

Weird Mobile Hack (Signal/Connectivity Issues)

This is an unbelievable mobile hack to temporarily boost your device’s signal strength.

I’ve tried this trick on Samsung Galaxy S2, Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Motorola G, Motorola E, Motorola G (2nd Generation), HTC One M7 and Nexus 5. And on all of them, it showed great & instant results in times of signal connectivity issues.

All you have to do is “Hold you device upside down” and do whatever you were doing.

Sounds incredibly stupid, but it has worked for me. When I’m getting, like a single bar and 3G works like 2G, I hold my phone upside down and the bars shoot to 2-3 instantly, thereby giving a decent net connection as well.

Well worth remembering to give a shot, when in the moment of need.

Stupid Rain

Everyone thinks the monsoon season is the most enjoyable season of all where love blossoms and roaming around is fun while getting all soaked up.

NOPE.JPG

Rain sucks and this is why its suck meter surpasses all those lovey dovey pros.

  • Getting all soaked when you don’t actually want to. Get all dressed for a meeting, hangout, dinner, function and as you step out you are drenched in a bucket full of water that erodes all your efforts. Fucking A.
  • Driving nightmare. Can’t speed because of clogged roads, low visibility, slow traffic and usually malfunctioning traffic lights. Do not even bother asking how pissed off bikers are. The potholes fill up nice and easy, so when a vehicle steps in, it frizzles a huge wave of water on a possible passerby, who was trying to evade rain with an umbrella but little did he knew there’s a sideways tide incoming.
  • Goodbye outdoor official games. Yes some people enjoy a muddy game of football knee deep in rain, but even the slightest drizzle and that’s a wrap for my cricket match. (Thank god I’m not into betting else I’d kill myself when my team is on a winning streak but the game gets washed.)
  • Gadgets grimm. Not everyone owns one of those fancy Xperia Z and Samsung Xcover devices. One drop in the wrong place and you have a possible non repairable device which as a matter of fact is not covered under warranty.  “Huehuehue, you’re fucked!” says the guy at the service center.
  • Humidity. It’s a normal day, not warm somewhat cold. It starts raining. Yay? Nay! Now you’re in an environment where you need an air conditioner but once it’s on, you need a blanket too because it’s cold. This might be a location specific point but still I will use every possible reason to say “Screw you rain”

Rain is important no doubt but why doesn’t it stays in farms where it’s needed for vegetation and agriculture.
Please don’t go all geographical ballistic on me with “Hey illiterate fuck, rain is an essential part of the ecosystem and weather change.” I know that. I try to adjust to it, but, what I can’t take is, the

“Ermahgerd, rain is soooo awesum. I wish it’d rain all yr.. xoxoxoxo”

Not only is that grammar, cancer invoking, but rain all year? You sir/ma’am die in a puddle that your dear rain filled up.
