Youtube will let the Flash player to the past and come with HTML 5 features.
YouTube first added support for HTML5 back in 2010 when I used with Linux OS.

Rainmeter – the new conky for Windows OS – part 001.

If you love it conky under Linux OS then for Wiondows OS you can try Rainmeter.
This application let you to customize your desktop with a lot of infos about web and PC.
Rainmeter is a free, open-source application, that enables skins to run on the desktop.
Some skins can interact with other skins and applications using special commands, called bangs and can be changing with short lines of text, called variables.
With some experience with Rainmeter’s code language you can make or changing someelese skins.
As you can see in this image , the application let you to set by GUI most of the skins and also to change it using your text editor. I used notepad , but you can also use any text editor (like sublime or something else).
Rainmeter tutorial 001
Also I set some default skins like network , data , disks and system.
You can have multimple layouts. I used illustro. Any layout can have many skins.
This skins can be loaded and unloaded by the user. In the bottom of this GUI will see one button named: Edit settings. This allow you to edit the file settings of Rainmeter.
Next will show you something about how to use the Rainmeter.ini file.
For example first line ( see the image from the top):

… tells us about logging -if set to 1, the log will be saved to a file, and also thepath to the skins folder.
Easy to do it if you know how to deal with this file. For example if I add the TrayIcon set by 0, you don’t see the Rainmeter trayicon.

Now will try to speak about some basic standard” features of this application.
First is meter and that allow you to defines a visual element.
This visual element is displayed in a skin, does not have a value, has a certain position with dimensions.
Let’s make one skin. Thirst you need to create one folder into this path:

Make also a text file named : MySkin001
… and fil with this :

I used this png file ( I also used gimp to set transparency).
The image is not very clean , but you can make some changes.

Clicl left on trayicon and select Manage. Under Skins tab select illustro -> MySkin001 -> MySkin001.ini and press load button to load the skin.
The next video show you how is working.

If you don’t make yourself all of this settings then you can get a lot of skins from customize.org.

Remove tunnels adapter show by ipconfig command.

According to technet.microsoft website about IPv6 for Microsoft Windows:
IPv6 in Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 uses the “Automatic Tunneling Pseudo-Interface” for encapsulating IPv6 packets with an IPv4 header so that they can be sent across an IPv4 network. By default, IPv6 configures a link-local Intra-Site Automatic Tunnel Addressing Protocol (ISATAP) address on the Automatic Tunneling Pseudo-Interface. The link-local ISATAP address has the form fe80::200:5efe:w.x.y.x or fe80::5efe:w.x.y.x, in which w.x.y.x is an IPv4 address assigned to the computer.
You can remove this with this windows command:
