When you are working on a Microsoft Office Software – be it Word, Excel, or Powerpoint, I’d recommend saving the document from time-to-time. Say, every time you update the document, don’t forget to save it. You can also use Ctrl+S to save it.
But what would you do when your Windows system crashes? Then, you don’t have time to save your documents and they are most likely to be lost.
Here, I will tell you how to recover an unsaved MS Word document. Restoring your work was never this easy. This feature is sadly available in Microsoft 2010 only and will allow you to recover the unsaved draft in seconds.
The Best Way to Recover Word Documents with Ease – Just Bring back the Draft
This sample document will be deliberately used to demonstrate how to recover an unsaved document. The demonstration will be sufficient for MS Word, MS Excel and even MS Powerpoint (all of MS Office 2010).
Okay, so when you Word file is accidentally closed without being saved, do not worry and open a new MS Word document. File -> Info -> Manage Versions.
By clicking on the dropdown menu, you can recover an MS Word 2010 document by selecting Recover Unsaved Documents, a MS Excel 2010 document by choosing Recover Unsaved Workbooks and a MS Powerpoint 2010 document by selecting Recover Unsaved Presentations.
MS Word will open the location of the draft copy. Select the draft you need, and then it will be opened in a new MS Word document. Do not forget to save it properly by clicking on File -> Save As this time around.
These copies’ backups are kept for 4 days after which they are dumped to no computer’s land.
The Open and Repair feature could be used when you open the doc. It can repair and then recover the corrupted MS Word documents having troubleshoot issues.
Browse to the following file locations if you are confident enough to open the file manually. Opening it from these locations will also help you recover the unsaved document.
For Windows 7/Windows Vista go to C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\<Application_Name>
For Windows XP go to C:\Documents and Settings\<username> \Application Data\Microsoft\<App Name>

Love Facebook? Check the best tools to download photos from Facebook.
Many times I come across Facebook Albums of my friends which leave me nostalgic. I have this tendency to download pictures from Facebook, Flickr and store in my computer. They help me cherish the old times spent with friends and family.
If you would have noticed, Facebook has this option which would let you download any photo – one at a time. In this post, I am going to cover a few handy tools for Facebook Album download. Here they are -
PhotoGrabber (Desktop Application to Download Photos of any Friend)
It is a desktop Facebook downloader, which when installed will allow you to do the following -
- Download Facebook photos of any friend
- Can download even those photos where your friend is tagged in
- Can even save the comment and tagging information of the photos
- Downloads all Facebook albums uploaded by your friend
This app requires your Facebook login credentials so that it can access your friends photos. Go have a shot with it today
If you are not able to download every photo you get to see from your browser, then it’s probably because of blocked application issues. This means that you can see the pics but the application Photograbber just can’t as it does not have enough permissions.
Fluschipranie: A Firefox Plugin to Download Your Facebook Albums
Fluschipranie is still an ecperimental plugin for Firefox 4 and yeah the good thing is that no restart of the browser would be required for the installation.
After installation, you can check the plugin by right-clicking on any album link. You would notice a fluschipranie’s download option. See screenshot below:
Give your photo album the desired name.
Point out the destination where you would like to save the Facebook Photo Album.

I sometimes feel that to download videos Youtube should have come come up with a button besides the video as well.. Of all the HD (or non HD) Youtube videos I see, I wish I was able to download them with ease rather than using any third-party software or plugin. One day, I found out the two most effective ways to download Youtube videos from the net and save it to my computer without the added hassles – one web based (KeepVid), and the other one software based (Real Player).
KeepVid (a web based Youtube Downloader)
To download videos from Youtube or any other online source straight to your computer, simply go to Keepvid..
Now, you should copy theYoutube Video URL (which you want to download) and paste it in the URL bar of Keepvid.
Then click on download. Keepvid’s online Youtube downloader functionality will then generate links for you, and you can easily download the Youtube video to your computer. Use “Save Link as” to save the video in the format you’d like to have.
You’d need a Java plugin for the download to start. Do not worry – even if you won’t have it, the website will give you the download link for the java plugin there itself. I tried downloading in Firefox and had no problem whatsoever.
If you want a permanent solution to all of this, and want a simple download tab whenever you see some nice video why don’t you download the new Real Player. Whenever a video is played, a download tab (when you take the mouse cursor on the video) is displayed which asks for whether you want to save the Youtube video to your computer or not. Check screenshot below to know more.
I hope these two methods bring about a permanent end to your Youtube video download woes. Have fun In case you want to check the top ten web browsers of all time to use when downloading Youtube videos, click here.

I don’t know if the zombies can get you or not, but each level of this game is sure gonna suck your life.
What’s the goal of the game? Prevent zombies from having your house. They succeed, and you die.
It ain’t a simple game, and involves brain rather than brawn especially when you’ll have to choose where to plant sunflowers when you’d have zombies attacking you from all over the place. Surely a pick for the best iPad games, eh?
Scrabble for iPad $9.99
It is the best iPad game if you’re going to take my suggestion. EA Sports has been able to recreate Hasbro’s classic board game to the iPad pretty neatly. The feature which stands out is the ability to play multi-player by using other iPads or iPhones as well.
Overkill — free
Overkill is a free iPad shooter game which is free, yet can provide with awesome entertainment perhaps more than the paid iPad games. It has a simple concept – you are a mercenary and you have to kill the enemy. Shoot them down. Kill more people and earn more money so taht you could upgrade your weaponry.
Real Racing HD $ 9.99
One of the great ipad games has to be a racing game. Real Racing HD is not featured here just because we needed to cover an iPad racing game but because it has the calibre to feature amongst the top iPad games ever. It has an awesome touch control as if it has been designed specifically for the Apple brand. Sit back in your car, and race with the ghosts. The F1 fan in you is surely gonna love it.

Do you find it tough at times to post a Facebook status within the default limit of 420 characters? As all of you must be knowing that the maximum length of a Facebook Status update is 420 characters currently. If you try posting an update with more than 420 characters in it, you’d see:
“Status updates must be less than 420 characters. You have entered 704 characters here. Notes can be much longer. Would you like to edit and post your update as a Note instead?”
The Noob Diary comes to your rescue whenever you want to post a long status update. Facebook has a little flaw in its wall post which would allow us to post as many characters as we want. Yes, the Facebook status limit can be crossed easily with this trick which we tend to use often but never noticed the unique aspect of it.
How to Post a Facebook Status Longer than 420 Characters?
Instead of sharing a status, simply “Upload a Photo” :
Step 1: Upload any photo you feel can look good with the desired status update. Don’t ask us whether your status update can have a whole book’s content in it or not as we are yet to try it.
Step 2: Select your photo and then write what all shit you want to write. You just don’t need to care about the so called Facebook status limit of 420 characters now. Do understand that your message will be covered with a “See More” link, but at least you’d get a chance to present your detailed view on your Facebook Wall.
Step 3: Now Click on “Share” Noob!!
Found this loophole useful? Knew about it? Ever used it in place of a Status Update? Do tell us in the comments below. Share and tell more friends about this trick.
