As some of you may know, Minecraft 1.0.0 was finally released. After some quick file swapping, I have updated my rainmeter skin to display the new set of splashes. You can download it here.

To install the skin.
1. Unzip it
2. Place the s4x0r folder inside your skins folder

Hide Your Files

Face it. Everyone has something on their computer that they don't want anyone else to see. It could be love letters, pictures of an ex, military secrets, etc. It's not any of my business what you keep on your computer, but it is my business to teach you how to hide it.

Today, I will show you how to hide archived files in an image. You will need two things: the archive you want to hide and an image. Any image will do (just make sure that it's not something that you would want to hide). Next, you need to compress the files to be hidden into an archive. Any format will do, but I will use .zip for tutorial purposes. Then you must put the image and the archive into the same folder (I recommend dropping them in the root of the C drive for convenience).
To put the files together, follow these steps:
1) Open the command prompt. (Start>Run>CMD)
2) Type "cd c:\"  then hit Enter(I used the root folder of the C drive. If you used a different folder, you'll have to type out the entire path)
3) Type "copy /b image.jpg + final.jpg" (image.jpg is the name of your original image, is the name of your archive, final.jpg is the name of your output file. The final will always have the same extension as the image.)
4) Done

The output file will be an image file and if you double click it, it will open as an image. However, if you open it with an archive utility (7zip, winrar, etc.) it will open as an archive and you can see your hidden files.

Stay sneaky, my friends.

How to Make Your Desktop Look Awesome

There is more that you can do with your desktop than just wallpapers or those little Windows gadgets. It's called rainmeter.

Rainmeter lets you customize your desktop by adding "skins" that do can anything from displaying your CPU usage to launching your favorite program. You can get rainmeter here. This comes with the basic "Illustro" skin to get you started, but if you want more skins, you can make your own (through some simple scripting) or go to

For Minecraft players, I've made a simple skin to display a random splash and launch the game. To install it just unzip it and place the s4x0r folder into the skins folder. Next, right click the rainmeter icon in the system tray and select "Manage". Then click "Refresh All" and load s4x0r>CrafterQuotes>regular.ini to see it.You can get that here.

So long for now and enjoy your awesome new desktop.

For some, this is a bit of old news. Windows 7 has a little Easter egg called Godmode. It allows you to control every setting that can be changed in one place. To activate this, s few very simple steps must be followed.

1) Create a new folder
2) Copy the following code and paste it into the folder name


3) Done

Notes: This is known to work on both the 32 and 64-bit versions of Windows 7. I wouldn't recommend trying this on Visa.

Good luck and enjoy not having to look around for a certain setting.

Hello World

As it is every programmer's first script, I think it appropriate to start off by saying:
print ("Hello, World!")
