Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

Yahoo + geocities Posts

Like the BrTurbo link... there's a little bit to know what the links from Yahoo/Geocities do... or how they work...

Maybe this can be pinned here as the BrTurbo post thread is posted here as well !?

The Beginning:
you must use a downloading program like flashget. 150+ Kbps download speeds.

There is a lot of people downloading from these servers so don't be surprised if it's hard to get the files lickity split, it will take time, maybe up to 24 hours or longer.
Error 503 (Service Temporarily Unavailable, 508 (Unused) or 999 (Not Available) will be a Normal Reponse.

(Error 404 is the only response you DON'T want = File deleted)

The following are tips for downloading from Yahoo/Geocities, you will get what you want quicker and easier by following them.

A few restrictions that I've figured out by downloading from the Y/G servers:
You must only use 1 jet (splitpart) per file, each extra jet added acts like a separate file and you will have to do the IP change more often (see below).

Example:file.zip with 8 jets or split parts seems like 8 separate files to the server yet you've only downloaded 1 file (IP change range 10 to 15 files) If you don't mind changing your IP every 5 minutes then use all the jets you want, LOL but I recommend just leaving at 1 jet per file.

(Most Important)
You MUST change the Referrer on every file so it is Blank, If it isn't set correctly you will get a 403 (forbidden error).
Good luck!

link pins for a womens Fossil watch


The only place you can get them is at a watchrepair. Sometimes I have found wierd sized link holes and have had to make my own pins. I just take a small nail and file it to the size I need. If you have a dremmil tool with a sandpaper attachment it is so much easier! Take a nail that is a little bit longer than the link is and sand down in a slow graduating cone shape, make sure to top of the nail is a little bit wider than the hole on the top of the link. Once you have that , put the smaller end in the link , line up the other link so that the pin goes into both links , and then tap it in. The pin should go into the bottom of the links. It might be good to do this on a piece of wood so that if the pin goes a little through the bottom, you don't damage anything. Try to make the pin as tight as you can, and than file (or dremmil) the top and bottom to the links size. If you still have problems please let me know, and maybe I can help you further. Good luck!!!!!
