Add torrent/magnet links directly from Chrome to uTorrent

Sometimes I really miss firefox. What was very simple years ago has proved surprisingly tricky for me on Chrome. I am looking for a way to ‘single click’ and add torrents to a remote instance of uTorrent. So far I have not had any luck using this Chrome extension: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/remote-torrent-adder/oabphaconndgibllomdcjbfdghcmenci?hl=en 🙁 So the quest will continue and hopefully I will soon have success to report! 🙂

Acer Aspire One AO756 memory upgrade and SSD swap

The Acer Aspire One AO756 is a nice little laptop that is available for a quite reasonable price (usually around $270 USD). As an added perk, with a few easy upgrades it can be even better! The AO756 allows for easy access to the RAM (memory) and unlike many of its brethren, it actually has two memory slots allowing for up to 16GB of memory to be installed!

Milk jugs used for cheap 3D printing!

3D printing is a very cool topic and this news makes it even more intriguing: 🙂 With 3D printing, anyone with a 3D printer can make just about anything using a digital design and plastic filament.

Not good. 🙁 Default WordPress search stinks The reason this happened is that by default WordPress sorts search results by date. So if you happen to have some recent posts that contain a keyword, they will

Gmail Blue, TOO advanced?

It has been unbelievably hard to use such a groundbreaking product as Gmail Blue and not be able to tell the world about it. Now that the NDA has been lifted, I can finally talk a little about Gmail Blue. Before the full review and benchmarks, which I am sure many other sites will have as well, I feel a word of warning is in order: +Sure, I love Gmail Blue. It really is light years ahead of the competition. Nobody else has that much Blue. Period. -So what

What is this? External token bounce back credit offer [solved]

Recently Amazon has started posting notices like this one on some of its product listing: External token bounce back credit offer What exactly is that?!
