My ShoutBox Is Back!!

Posted on December 2007 at about 12:15 AM by hwa

Guys! After more than a year i disabled my ShoutBox, now it’s back!!! 😀 But i disabled my Recent Comment.

The reason i bring back my ShoutBox is because sometime when people just want to say something to me, let’s say hi, they will go to any topic and post a comment there, which will ended up as spam, so i decided to put a ShoutBox so people can say whatever they want to me as long as it’s make sense. 🙂

Actually, the SboutBox is an improved version of the WP-ShoutBox by Ryan Mack, most of the modification i made are for the back-end, which is the admin part, other than that my version of ShoutBox is validated as XHTML Strict!! 😉

Create A Safely Remove Hardware Desktop Icon

Posted on December 2007 at about 6:01 PM by hwa

Ever though of creating a Safely Remove Hardware icon on your desktop? You may ask why because the icon will usually appear at the taskbar, but for some odd reason, mine will not always appear, so sometime i have no other choice but to pull the USB stick right away. I don’t know what caused this happen, it’s Windows anyway and apparently i’m not the only one who facing this problem.

However, i found this simple workaround, which is create a shortcut on your desktop to open the Safely Remove Hardware menu, this is how you do it:-

  • On your desktop, right click then choose New > Shortcuts after that copy and paste the following:

%windir%\system32\rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL hotplug.dll

  • Press next, you will be ask to give a name for your shortcut, any name will do, or just name it Safely Remove Hardware, then press finish.

That’s it! You are done, the shortcut should appear on your desktop. But for now you probably in love with your new shortcut, so you feel like want to make it fancier a bit, and here is how you can add an icon for it:-

  • Right click on your shortcut then choose Properties.
  • Go to the Shortcut tabs and click on the button Change Icon….
  • A menu should appear with a bunch of icon for you to choose, you can pick any icon from here OR you may paste the following and press enter for the Windows Safely Remove Hardware icon.


Hope this helps. 🙂
