Cheating on Fallout Shelter for PC

Ok, I really enjoy Fallout Shelter, specially now that I discovered a little trick: changing the clock.

Let me explain this: while playing the game, move the clock of your computer, or even the day, to a future one. Just follow these steps.

NOTE: This works while playing the game online or offline.

1. Make sure to know which day of the week is noted on the Daily Report (this way you can always get lunchboxes). And also remember the day of your computer and time... just in case you go to far and forget it.

Yes, 88%, I'm too busy to pay attention to that.

2. Change the date (or hour) a little back to a few days or hours. Just enough to fit the time you’re looking for: days for daily report, hours for quests or exploring.

The best thing is that it not a cheat.

3. Now return it to the time it was.

Easy.

4. Wait a couple of seconds, this happens as soon as you hit “Change”.

Real time, baby.

5. Done.

Free lunchboxes.

Today I came from work, sat on my PC and found out that Fallout Shelter was now being released on PC. I’m downloading it right now.

I'm excited.

To download it, you need the Bethesda Launcher, get it here.

This is the best.

Now we only need a way to download more hours for the day.

Aida64: What’s the difference between Extreme, Engineer, and Business

So I decided to try Aida64 to see how it is, and as many software that exists all over the Internet, it has several versions, 3 to be precise; Extreme, Engineer, and Business. So if you’re a average user, download the Extreme.

Sorry for the resolution, it was a big image.

Let me tell you the differences as simple as possible:

  • Extreme: perfect for average user. It has benchmarking (which is why you’ll use it mainly), and a pretty detail hardware report.
  • Engineer: exactly the same as extreme. I actually didn’t find any difference on the interface, nor in the preferences, or anything. The only difference they mention on the website is that this one works on “workstations and servers”.
  • Business: design for IT support. The main point of this version is that has a Remote option that allows the user to access another computer to monitor it, check the system information, and control it. Not only that, it has a database and audit manager. Ergo, NOT FOR AVERAGE USERS.

And that’s it. Download the version that you want.

Reddit is now tracking your clicks. Here’s how to disable it

In a recent update, reddit decided to implement a tracking system to monitor users’ clicking under the feature “Allow reddit to lot my outbound clicks for personalization”. This is most users hate, and that’s why we use adblockers, the ads are tolerable, but tracking is not. Anyhow, here’s the easy way to disable it.

Go into your Preferences, scroll to the bottom.

Money.

Just disable that one and you should be done.

Can’t install Fonts on Windows 10? Try enabling the Windows Firewall

How to permanently hide Facebook Right Sidebar using Adblock Plus

I really hate this shit.

Saw that? I hate that. I don’t care about anything in that sidebar, so I decided to hide it. Here’s how to do it. First you need to install an ad blocker, in my case Adblock Plus. I’m not saying it’s the best, just the one I’m most familiar with at the moment.

YSK how to check your Google search history

So, let’s keep showing you my Google account information. This time is my search history, something that you can’t disable from this page, you can only delete items and see them.

history

Something curious that I read on this reddit thread is that you can use this tool to keep a tab on your children’s history, something that, as a technician, many parents ask me to block websites and services from theirs. By looking at their history, I think that the job would be easier.

Anyway, remember that even though you are deleting items from this list, it doesn’t mean that Google is deleting it from their servers. Avoid searching anything you don’t want tracked.

YSK how to check your Google Location history

Something I just learned. If you go into your Google account you can see your location history, which are the places where you log into your Google account, this includes PCs and mobile devices.

I can see my house from here.

You could disable this, but by doing this, according to Google, Maps and Now may be not work correctly. And don’t worry, the alerts that say that you’re account is being accessed from X location will still be enabled and working without problem.

Just remember something important, there is still a chance that Google keeps recording your location whether you disable this or not, so the best thing you can do is disable any location services on your PC and your mobile.

How to install .net Framework 3.5 on Windows 10

One of the things I don’t like about W10 is that you need Internet to install .net Framework. This wasn’t necessary on XP or 7, only on 8.1 and 10, but gladly there is a way to avoid this.

You need 2 things:

  1. An ISO of your current OS (if it’s 10, an ISO of 10).
  2. An admin command prompt.

After having these 2 things, mount the ISO and open the command prompt. Type the following.

Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /All /Source:D:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess

Where “D” is the letter of the drive where the ISO is mounted. Like this.

Easy.

Press enter, and wait a few seconds. The process is quick and it’s not harmful to your OS in any way.

YSK about YouTube “Continue Watching” section

Just a little tip for those who use YouTube on PC: if you stop watching a video at any point, there is a chance that the video will be added to a section called Continue Watching.

This is new to me.

What’s so special about this? Well, apparently it will play the video where you left off, which is amazing if you like watching really long videos (my case) and have a really bad memory (also my case).

Anyway, just remember that the section in there in case you need it.

Manga Rock: The best manga reader for Android... ever.

TL;DR: Download Manga Rock.

I love manga, so I needed an app for it. After searching for a while I found this.

I love this.

I’ll just say some of the things that this reader has. First of all, as you can see above, you can download chapters to read them offline. There are many sources, like MangaReader, MangaHere, MangaFox, Batoto, and a lot more.

How to download? Easy as fuck. First look for the manga you want to download, click Download.

No, I haven't read Toriko yet.

Select the chapters and download them.

You can download 4 chapters at the time.

What else.... Let’s see. You can save your favorites and get notifications when there is a new chapter AND download the chapter automatically.

Manga is the best.

You can search in several sites at the same time.

One day I'll read that too.

And you have your home page that shows the most popular manga depending on your main manga site, in my case MangaReader.

Popular manga appear first.

There are a ton of stuff that I didn’t show here. But trust me, this is the only app you’ll ever need. Go and download it right now.

YSK you can use Shift in Google Maps

Google Maps and Google Earth are slowly merging... or at least sharing feature. This is one that I recently discover thanks to reddit, and is that if you hold Shift while moving the mouse, the whole map becomes 3D, just like Sim City or Cities Skylines.

Use better on first world countries.

Although if a very useless trick, it’s still amazing, and shows how amazing the technology is these days. We live in the future already.
