Dial-up connection using Command prompt

Connecting to internet using mobile partner or some other program is simple. But it consumes your system resources(around 200 MB of RAM). You can simply save your resources by using command prompt. This method is applicable only on Windows platform.

First, install the device driver and create the dial-up connection, or just install the mobile partner(or software that came along with your modem) and connect using it(it will automatically create the dial-up connection). now you can exit that program.

Here is the procedure to connect using command prompt:

  • Open command prompt
  • Type the following command

To disconnect,
rasdial "CONNECTION NAME" /Disconnect

You can also automate this process by creating batch file.
Open any text editor and copy the following code

if %errorlevel% == 0 exit
goto Redial;
Replace the CONNECTION NAME with your connection name(you can rename it) and save it as connect.bat

Open any text editor and type the following
rasdial "CONNECTION NAME" /Disconnect

Replace the CONNECTION NAME with your connection name(you can rename it) and save it as disconnect.bat

Save them at the location of your convenience and just double click them to connect and disconnect a dial-up connection.

Java: Use BigInteger in for-loop

In my previous post , I mentioned a way to handle large integers by using BigInteger. Now I'm going to provide a very important usage of it. We often use for-loop. So here is the way to use it: Ordinary integers: for(int i = 1; i <= n; i++) {  //Task to do } BigInteger: for (BigInteger bi = BigInteger.valueOf(1);                 bi.compareTo(n) <= 0;                 bi = bi.add(BigInteger.ONE)) { //Task to do } here n is a BigInteger variable.

Karabiner: Mouse/keyboard customizer for OS X

For beginners, or the one who migrated from Windows environment, Natural Gestures (Scrolling and Swiping) might be bit confusing. But, once you get familiarized with them, it may feel like "What was I doing, all those days?". It all changed, when I connected external mouse to my Macbook. When you start using that WHEEL, you will be confused. Luckily there is a setting for mouse, to change scroll behavior (natural or the other way). But, here's the catch. If you toggle that setting, it also toggles the same for TRACKPAD!!!!! I've seen that many people were freaked out and even raised BUG report to Apple. But, all those reports were closed, saying that is not a bug, but intentional feature!!! For those, who can't leave with such one-sided settings, here is a simple util, which came to my rescue: Karabiner It's simple, powerful and stable mouse/keyboard customizer for OSX.
