How to Direct-Download Movies

Direct-downloading is a way of downloading a file or files directly through a hyperlink that points to a location on the internet where the user can download the file. It is almost the same as copying a file from your friend's flash drive to your computer, but differs in many ways such as the file-transfer rate and the medium used for transferring the data.

Downloading is a fun thing to do, specially if you just downloaded a rare file (those which you just luckily found after searching for hours to days). In this article, we'll discuss how to download movies from the internet without using P2P's like Bit Torrent, eMule, etc, but directly downloading it from a server. Here's what you'll need:
I specified Mozilla Firefox as the browser to make sure that this will work, and also because the browser I used in the screenshot is Mozilla Firefox. But you can still use your favorite browser if you like. Let's get rolling!
1. First, close all your internet browsers and install IDM.
2. Open your browser and go to Google, then in the search textbox, type the following without quotes:

In the example above, the year and the codec is not specified. It is for us to gain more results. You can search with the movie title alone but don't forget to include the '' syntax. The YEAR, DVDRip, Xvid are optional, and used to narrow down your results and to get a specific release because this is the standard in warez naming.
3. Click the correct movie in your search result and you will get this screen:
Sometimes this screen won't appear and it will go directly to the video page as seen in the next screenshot.
4. You'll might be prompted to install the DivX plugin, but just ignore it as you will not watch the video in your browser. Just click the "Download this Video" as shown below.
5. After clicking "Download this Video" button, this dialogue box will appear. Click "Start Download".
 As you can see, the file size is almost 1.4 GB. This is one of the indication that you are downloading the correct file (an avi file, not an flv file). Others have 700 MB of size. Some files are in between these two because the size varies in the movies' duration.
You are now downloading the file and all you have to do is wait for it to finish.
6. While waiting, you can search for its subtitle. Just follow the following screenshots:
Go to then type the title of the movie you are downloading.
Click the appropriate title in your result.
Scroll down to the English subtitle with the right release. In the example, the 'aXXo' release, but there is no english sub for it so try other release with the same source (DVDRip)
Click download English Subtitle
Start Download
7. When the movie you are downloading is finished, place the movie and the extracted subtitle file in a separate folder.
And rename them properly.
Rename also the folder.
8. Now, all you have to do is test if the movie and the subtitle is synced.

If you find that the dialogue matches the subtitle timing, then you got the right subtitle for it! Otherwise you can download again another subtitle until you have the correct one for it.

That's it! Gather your friends now and watch a movie!
Hope you find this article helpful. Feel free to share this if it helped you.

Working with Warez Files

First of all, what is warez? Warez is a short term for softwares, but with a letter "z" at the end. Technically it should be pronounced as warez like in soft-warez, not "war-azz", but pronouncing it as war-azz works better. The letter Z at the end is used to denote that the software is pirated, or illegally obtained or shared. These are copyrighted works illegally distributed and shared on the internet. MP3 albums, moviez, full versions of applications, games, and everything commercial softwares that you get free is warez.

Warez files are oftenly distributed with standard file-naming and packaging. They are commonly distributed as RAR or ZIP archives. Large files are distributed by volumes, meaning they are divided into several RAR files. A 700 MB file is divided into seven 100 MB RAR files and you will need an archive extractor such as 7Zip to extract the file. You will also see an NFO and a DIZ file inside the archive that contains information about the file you've downloaded. Sometimes it includes an SFV or an MD5 file used to verify the integrity of the file. Their filenames don't include space but only alphanumeric characters and a period, hyphen, underscore and a parenthesis. Standard file-naming for a warez movie file is Title.Of.The.Movie.YEAR.Source.Codec-GROUP. As you can see, the filename itself contains the basic information about the movie file. This is to give the users information about the movie file - what is the quality, the group, the year, the codec, and the source if it is a DVDRip or an HDTV rip. This will prevent them from downloading unwanted files caused by lack of needed information about the file and to be sure that they are downloading a legit warez file.

Warez files are distributed in different ways. The oldest way is by IRC or Internet Relay Chat. The easiest way is by p2p or Peer-to-Peer by which files are distributed using a BitTorrent Client, an eDonkey Client and the likes. Through this, the files are stored in the users' computers and the users downloading the file will download it on other users who already finished downloading. Those who are finished downloading the file are called Seeders, and those who download are the Leechers. Leechers can be seeders because they also seed while they are downloading. The more seeders, the faster the download. Another way to ditribute warez is by using a file-hosting site where files are stored in a server. These files are stored abiding the terms and conditions given by the filehosting company. If the file is reported as an illegal file or a copyrighted material, the file will be deleted immediately.  The difference of this compared to P2P is that, the files are stored in a server where users has no control in it, and the more users downloading the file simultaneously, the slower the download unlike the P2P method. Most file-hosting sites limit the download speed for free users, and for premium members, they give the maximum downloading speed. The fastest way to get warez files is by subscribing into newsgroups or by the use of UseNet. There are free newsgroups but files are deleted in a span of weeks to months only. But in the premium, files are stored up to 3 years in the server. Recovery files are included in the release to ensure that the corrupted files have the chance to be repaired. These files are called Parity files, or .PAR files and is used with quickpar, a free application to create, verify and recover files using Par files. But not all warez files exist at the same time in these three methods. There are files that are shared only in torrents. There are file that exist only in filehosting site, and there are those that are only available in usenet.

All in all, downloading a warez is illegal in many countries. You could be arrested by being caught of possessing a warez file and fine a large amount of money. Also, be careful in downloading a warez file. Scan it before you open. It could contain malicious codes that could takeover your computer. But keygens and cracks are mostly mistaken as virus because of their behavior of generating serials and editing the registry.

That's all folks! Hope you understand what is warez. Thank you for reading. Stay tuned for more articles here at!

Track your Expections and Reality


What are you planning right now?

Do you want to change?

Are you the type who procastinate and loss track of what you were doing?

Well, people would always tell you to list down the things you want to happen and cross each one when you achieve it.

I can tell you that its the topic of this post: Tracking down your expectations.

Its simple.

Instead of a list you'll make a table with two columns.

Left column is labeled "Expectations", while "Reality" on the right.

Its pretty simple actually, you'll just take note what happen about your expectation.


Expectation: "I'll give my crush a soda." Reality: "I hid behind the bushes when i was going to give the soda to her."


Using this method, you can keep track of what really happened so that you could change it.

Its effective since you are telling yourself what are the wrong things that you do...

I just hope you're not being lazy about writing these kind of things down.

"The flaw of every weapon is its user."

Use this tool well, to improve and to get what you want!

A classmate of mine likes to play visual novels. Visual novels are actually like those make-your-own-adventure books, wherein you decide what course the story will take, only that they are played in a computer. Well, one time, I watched him play a game, and got interested on the story. It's about a medical student who got into a car accident. He had undergone a major brain surgery. When he recuperated, he found out that the way he sees the world has changed, side effect of the surgery. People appeared as monsters, his food looks like human guts, the world a big, strange, scary place.

So, what made me interested? Try this.

Close your eyes. Imagine.

You are walking on a dirt road. On your right is a flowing river. On your left is a forest teeming with life. A cool breeze is blowing softly across your face. After some time, you arrived at a group of nipa huts arranged in a circle. At the center is the bonfire. People are either playing, eating, cooking of course, while learning what their surroundings is telling them. Everything you need, the forest provides, and no one abuses the forest because everyone knows that it is your life source. This is your village. Only one law is followed, and that is to do what you want to do, as long as you don't hurt others, otherwise they'll hurt you too. Everything is beautiful. Everything is clean, even the air. Peace is so palpable, so evident, that you can feel it to the bones. And you are happy and contented.

Now, open your eyes.

What do you see?

People might not appear as monsters, your food still tastes good, the world as normal as ever. But what I think the game was trying to portray is the dark side of reality. That people don't appear as they really are, allegory to the things humans do to change themselves. Beauty products, surgeries and implants, food supplements, processed foods. Not only these things, but also on the way we think, how selfish we really are, how self-centered human race is. And because we are like this, we do not realize that everything around us is affected. Pollution. Toxic wastes. New diseases. Global warming. Mutated animals. These things are the product of humans trying to control nature, when in fact doing this only makes nature against us.

Imagination may be the only answer. If we can imagine terrible things, we can imagine beautiful things too. Remember the quote, "You are only limited by your imagination."

Hit Songs

Did you ever wonder why those popular songs today are popular?

Do you want to make a song that would also be a hit?

Then, i'll tell you the secrets in making a song that could be popular!

"What do those popular songs have?"

After careful listening to popular "songs", I noticed some very particular similarities among them.

These songs have the same characteristics which makes them great! (Not all great things are good though *Cough*Jusehember*Cough*)

What are these characteristics?

1) Melody that is Repetitive and Easy to remember. - Our brain likes patterns. Admit it, even though you don't like those popular "songs", the melody of those "songs" are stuck inside your head! Why? Because it's (a) Repetitive, and (b) Easy to remember. It's basically a pleasure for your brain which is the reason why it is betraying you in terms of your music preference.

2) Catchy Lines that is constantly Repeated. - Never mind the Stanzas of the songs. You could just fill it up with " I like jellies, I like jelly, and me so jelly" then bring in a Catchy line like "and I was like, jelly, jelly jelly oh oh ohhhhh." together with a equally Catchy and Repetitive Melody. That will surely make your listeners remember your song.

3) High notes in the middle of the low notes - Do you get it? Add a high note after singing in a low tune then lower down your notes again. An example of this is the song "Paparazzi". Listen to this carefully (Well, play the song.), "I'm your biggest fan, I'll follow you until you love me, Papa, paparazzi.". Why does it sound so good to the ears? Was it autotune? No! It's because your brain was BLASTED with it! The part of the song prior to the high note puts you into a state of relaxation (Relaxed in a sense that you have accomodated the music). After blasting you with a high note, your mind was altered into a "emergency state" which increases your attention and focus to the source of the stimuli enabling you to remember it easier.

This 3 stuffs, are the MAIN factors that makes a song a HIT!

However, there are other ways to make a song popular.

This includes, but is not limited to:

1) Violent Lyrics

2) Cool and Noisy Melody (By Cool I mean, it's "different")

3) Controversial Artist

4) Hidden Satanic Messages

5) Controversial Lyrics

6) Making your song banned in other countries.

7) Spreading conspiracy theories about your song.

See, making a hit song wasn't so hard.

Only 3 things to consider and every one of it is in front of you.

What are you waiting for?

Write your own song now.

Who knows, maybe you'll become the next idol.

Thanks To Google

It's fun to create a blog. You are free to express everything and let the world know what you think of something. But this blog wasn't that easy.

When this blog, was first created, we already got a problem. We don't want the dash in our subdomain (because it separates the 'g' and 'k') and instead, we want to use but it is unavailable. I forgot that I am the one who created that blog in 2008 but never put a content in there. In short, it's my fault why it is unavailable.

Luckily I got to remember the email and password I used and then I got access to the old empty blog. I deleted the blog assumming that we can use the dashless subdomain. But when we tried to apply the dashless subdomain to our new blog, it said that it is (still) unavailable. We didn't know that when you delete a blog, you can't use its subdomain anymore for new blogs. I felt sorry but I still tried to do something. I contacted Google for support, hoping that the deleted blog's subdomain can still be used.

Below is a copy of our conversation with Google.
