block GOMI ads


I wouldn't normally do this, but it's asinine that users are forced to disable Adblock entirely and leave their computers open to lots of invasive, dangerous ads on GOMI if they want to use the site. This will fix the redirects. Thanks to the users who keep finding the right codes to change.
If you're seeing redirects to the main forum on GOMI, do the following:
  1. Download Adblock Pro for your browser
  2. Click on the Adblock Pro icon and select "Options" at the bottom of the dropdown
  3. Click on the "Add Your Own Filters" tab
Add the following codes:
This should stop the redirect.
Let me know if I've missed any steps, or if any of you notice changes to the code.

How to add Spellcheck Plugin to Pidgin

I wanted to use spellcheck with pidgin but couldn't figure out how to install the plugin. I found out how to do it manually.

Versions 2.7.0 and newer use the dictionaries available from the openoffice extension download site. You need to download the appropriate language extension file(s) (files are openoffice extensions *.oxt, which are just zip files that contain additional data). Once you have downloaded a dictionary extension file, you can rename it so it has a .zip extension and then extract the *.dicand *.aff files in it to <Pidgin Installation Directory>\spellcheck\share\enchant\myspell\ (create the directories if they don't exist already).
If Pidgin is running, it will need to be restarted for new dictionaries to be recognized.
Versions older than 2.7.0 use Aspell; you can download both the Aspell core and a dictionary from the win32 Aspell website.

I used the Link for the English dictionary file,
Unzipped the .oxt file and put in C:\Program Files (x86)\Pidgin\spellcheck\share\enchant\myspell

How to downgrade Chromecast Browser Extension

I had problems with the new Chromecast Cast option in Chrome and apparently it is because Google is rolling out a new way to cast that does not require the Google Chromecast extension. I found it much more annoying to have a blue cast window in the middle of my browser and half the time it could not even see my chromecast.

To downgrade you need to:

and turn off this setting: Media Router -> DISABLED

Reboot Chrome and it should work like it did before.

Also works on Chromebooks.

How to Disable Steam Notifications by Creating a Custom Skin

I also hate this and don't know why we don't have the option to turn them off. I got fed up with it and found a way to get rid of all notifications. This means all group notifications, friend status, and probably achievements. If you want to use any of those, do not do this. You can reverse it easily though by just deleting the file you create.

What you have to do is create a skin for steam and disable the notifications through the skin. This sounds difficult, but it is very easy.

Open the steam folder on your computer and then open the skins folder. Now create a new folder here and name it whatever you want the skin to be called. I used the name (Remove Notifications). Then inside of that folder create another folder named "resource". Then inside the resource folder create a folder named "styles". On windows XP the location would look like this:

C:\Program Files\Steam\skins\Remove Notifications\resource\styles

Now leave that folder open and go to this folder:

C:\Program Files\Steam\resource\styles

There is a file in this folder named "steam.styles" (you may just see a file named steam, that is it). This is the skin for steam, but if you edit it here it will be replaced with the original the next time you start steam. Copy this file and put it into the empty folder I just had you make above.

Now you can edit this file in the new folder you just made to get rid of the notifications. Open the file in a text editor (notepad). Scroll down until you see these settings (or press "control F" to search) and change them to what I have shown here:

Notifications.SlideDirection "none"
Notifications.FadeInTime "0"
Notifications.FadeOutTime "0"
Notifications.DisplayTime "0"

Fade in and out time must be set to 0 because the display time does not take effect until the notification has faded in.

Save the file. Now open steam, click settings, go to the tab called "interface" and in the drop down box on the right select the skin you just created. Restart steam. Done.

You can look through that file and change other things if you feel like it. If you mess anything up, just delete the file you created and it will go back to the default.
