This guide will you take you each step of the way through setting up a VPN on your Mac. The steps and screenshots used in this tutorial are from OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) but are nearly identical to previous versions of OS X, so you should have no trouble following along, even if you’re not using Yosemite.
If you don’t have a VPN service yet, I strongly recommend and endorse the VPN service provided by Private Internet Access, which works perfectly with OS X on any Mac.
  1. Let’s get started. Click the Apple Button from the Menu Bar, and select System Preferences….
  2. Locate the Network button, and give it a click.
  3. From the menu on the left side of the Network window, there’s a list of all your current connections (whether they’re in use or not). To add a VPN connection, click the “plus sign” ( + ) at the bottom of your Network connections list (see screenshot below).
  4. Click the “up and down arrow” icon at the end of the Interface: drop down menu.

  5. Select VPN from that list.

  6. For the sake of this tutorial we’re going to create an L2TP over IPSec VPN connection. Without having to install any additional software, OS X supports the VPN protocols L2TP (over IPSec), PPTP and Cisco IPSec. If you’re using PPTP or Cisco IPSec you should still be able to follow along without any problems, the steps are quite similar.
  7. Give your Service Name:, a name. The name itself doesn’t matter, but something descriptive is always best. That way you’ll always know which VPN you’re connecting to, especially if you set up multiple VPNs. Click the Create button when you’re done.
  8. Back in the main section of the Network window is where you’ll configure the first part of your VPN connection. Leave the Configuration: set to Default. Enter your VPN service providers server in the Server Address: field, and your VPN user name in the Account Name: section. Now click on the Authentication Settings… button.
  9. You can enter your password in the Password: field if you’d like, or you can leave it blank and have your Mac ask for your VPN password each time you connect to it (which is more secure). If your VPN provider uses a Secret key, enter it in the Shared Secret: field. When you’re done, click OK

  10. Now click the Advanced button.
  11. Place a check in the box labelled Send all traffic over VPN connection and then click OK.
  12. Finally, make sure there’s a check in the box labelled Show VPN in the menu bar, and click Apply.
  13. Now locate that VPN icon in your Menu Bar (see screenshot below) and click it. Select your newly created VPN to connect to it.
  14. If you opted to have your Mac save your VPN connection, you should connect right away. Otherwise you’ll be prompted for your password, and then connect. Either way, you’re done! If you click the VPN icon again, it will show you how long you’ve been connected.

How to Enable GodMode in Windows 10

Posted by GNB Technologies On 0 comments

GodMode was first discovered in Windows 7 as a hidden feature and when enabled, it could provide access all control panel options in single folder. Basically, the ‘GodMode’ is a folder which has a special name to it and provides access to all the control panel settings in single page. This is pretty useful as you do not have to search for options in control panel and you get quick access.
GodMode feature is also available in Windows 10 and you can enable it by creating a new folder.
Screenshot (23)
Right click on desktop and click create new folder. Now in the name for the folder type the following code.
GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
Press enter and this will turn the folder in GodMode. Now open the folder and you will see all the control panel items.
You can see that the folder has an icon of the control panel. In the code above, you can replace the ‘GodMode’ with your text, but the rest of the code should be intact.

Several pornography web sites are currently inaccessible in India on several internet service providers (ISPs). According to a thread on discussion site and social network ‘Reddit’, several of the most popular porn sites are not accessible in India on internet connections provided by MTNL Mumbai, BSNL, Vodafone, ACT and Hathway are either showing blank pages when connecting to pornography sites, or “Directory doesn’t exist”.
mobile-india
One user reported that “It says the site has been blocked by the ‘Competent Authority’”. However, users on Airtel and Tikona, and one BSNL user reported that all sites could be accessed normally. ‘Legally India‘ has confirmed that on one Delhi broadband connection provided by Spectranet, 11 out of the world’s 13 most popular porn sites were not accessible. Two websites were functioning normally.
Non-pornographic video sites such as youtube.com, vimeo.com or dailymotion.com were accessible normally. However, on an Airtel and Reliance mobile phone internet connection, all sites were working normally.
The block does not appear to be at a domain-name server (DNS) level or IP address level, as three of the top five sites still responded to so-called ping requests by Legally India, though two timed out. TelecomTalk personally tested this on Hathway broadband in Mumbai and the sites were blocked but when tested with a VPN connection the sites loaded up flawlessly on the same ISP.
That said, it is a possibility that technical issues are behind the partial block. More clarity on the matter will be available only once DOT responds to the query. What is your take on the matter? are you pro or anti porn ban by the government? Let us know your views and opinions through your comments below.

From success coaches to the so-called inspirational books and the literature in between, practice is often touted as the ultimate key to success. A new study claims that this may not actually be the case.
Einstein

Most of this obsession with the theory that practice makes us successful, goes back to a study by K. Anders Ericson in 1993. Some popular explanations of the theory include the famous 10,000 hour rule which tries to prove that every successful man has had 10,000 or so hours of practice which made him as successful as he is.
But a new study contests all of this. According to a paper published in Intelligence, it has been claimed that practice is not all that important. The study focuses on chess and music as the domains of its research and states, “Deliberate practice does not explain all, nearly all, or even most of the variance in performance in chess and music, the two most widely studied domains in expertise research. Put another way, deliberate practice explains a considerable amount of the variance in performance in these domains, but leaves a much larger amount of the variance unexplained.”
In the case of chess players, the study cites that some players reached the heights of success in the chess world within 2 or so years, while others took more than two decades of practice to achieve this. The obvious anomaly shows that practice is not always the key to success.
Instead, other factors such as starting age, personality, intelligence and other genetic factors may be involved in the success of many. According to the study, there is sufficient evidence to suggest that ‘quite clear that some people do reach an elite level of performance without copious practice, while other people fail to do so despite copious practice.’
These findings are in contrast to the previously held and actively propagated view that practice can allow one to virtually excel in any field. As faulty as that assumption sounded, it was an idea that sold well primarily because people want to believe that they can do anything. So in that sense, this new study is somewhat of a reality check for many.
