Synchronizing wallet for the first time in blockchain technology can be a pain in the ass if it hasn’t got any Electrum version of wallet. Same problem is with SiaCoin, which can synchronize for daaaaayz. To evolve this, there’s a quick method.

1. Stop SiaClient (taskbar/kill -9)

2. Go to %APPDATA%\Sia-UI\sia\consensus\ and rename consensus.db to consensus.db.old

3. Download latest blockchain snap from here: [8.3GB today @ 2018-01-10]

4. Move the file to the %APPDATA% (or Linux-like path)

5. Start SiaClient once again.

It will start doing *something* but it is not hanged. If you have an SSD drive (and you should!) it will take about 20minz. On HDD SATA-III drive it will take about 6 hourz.

This g00d workaround comes from rdit @


Let’s say that you have to manage 60 Windows Servers with separate credentials, IP addresses, etc. It is heavy to open them one-by-one or even by using RDP Manager.

There’s one simple app+script: use RDP Plus from (VirusTotal free).

And use this little code to a simple *.bat file:

C:\to0lz\rdp.exe /v:server1 /Domain:mydomain /U:user /P:pazw0rd
C:\to0lz\rdp.exe /v:server2 /Domain:mydomain /U:user /P:pazw0rd
C:\to0lz\rdp.exe /v:server3 /Domain:mydomain /U:user /P:pazw0rd
C:\to0lz\rdp.exe /v:server4 /Domain:mydomain /U:user /P:pazw0rd


First of all, you’ll don’t find this piece of sh1t in Add/Remove Programz in Control Panel so basically it must be manually deleted from teh Windows Registry. Type regedit in Search Box. Go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products\ and search for string starting with 00005. All Offize products start with 0000X. Delete this and viola, now you can install your Office add-on/expl0it. REMEMBER! Plz backup your registry first before deleting this item.

If you cannot see one of the icons placed on the task bar after updating system to Windows 10 you should try one of these steps:
Method 1

select "Thumbnails" and clear it
shutdown /r

Method 2

del /a %localappdata%\IconCache.db

Method 3
Deselect Always show icons, never thumbnails

sc queryex type=service state=all
Find by specific name pattern:
| find /i "srvcname"
Also by PowerShell:
Get-Service | Where-Object {$_.displayName.StartsWith("NATION-")} | Select name

There’s a quite old All-in-One device from HP, but it wasn’t working on Windows 10, so HP made an update to driver. That’s quite nice, because printer is very cheap, and yet they wanted to invest to create the driver. So, you can download from here and it works: here

Recently I’ve updated my system to Windows 8.1 and next to 10 (viva NSA \o/). After I shutdown my lap’ and then start it again, it hangs, freezes, etc. There was a cool hing about this. When bought with pre-installed Windows 8 – there was one device that was already disabled… strange. It was storage SD/MCC controller. I’ve tested this and disabled device called “O2 MicroSD/MMC controller” – rebo0ted and… the freeze has gone. I’ve also tried to install older drivers – it also works.
