Cancel a Print Job

Ever tried canceling a print job in Windows but feel like it takes ages before anything actually happens? It's a common annoyance, and one that helpful Reddit user Shikyo explains and remedies.

In a nutshell, Shikyo explains that Windows is unable to cancel print jobs while the temporary file created for the print job is still being used by Windows. The solution: You've got to stop the spoolsv.exe service in the Windows Task Manager, delete any outstanding print jobs in the C:\Windows\system32\spool\printers\ directory, restart the spoolsv.exe service, and then start printing again. That's a lot of work to do manually, particularly if this is a problem you run into regularly, but luckily the generous Reddit user has also detailed a batch file that'll do the heavy lifting for you:

Here is the script for a batch file; just copy this to a new text document and save as "clearprintspool.bat"

@echo off
echo Stopping print spooler.
echo.
net stop spooler
echo deleting stuff... where? I'm not sure. Just deleting stuff.
echo.
FOR %%A IN (%systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.*) DO DEL %%A
echo Starting print spooler.
echo.
net start spooler

To save you the trouble of making the batch file yourself, you can also just download it here. Whenever you want to run through the process, just double-click the file and it'll kill the process, delete the temp files, and restart the print spooler for you.

As several users on Reddit point out, this isn't something you'll want to do on a print server—at work, for example—because it'll cancel everyone's print jobs and not just your own. But if you commonly face this annoyance on your personal printer, the batch file or method described above looks like a nice enough workaround.

Pakai sabun ape cik?

Kisah Si Chot Mangkaq...

GAMBAR

Chot baru lepas tangkap gambar di kedai yang berhampiran dengan rumahnya.
Sekarang, dia cuma perlu menaiki bas untuk ke Jabatan Imigresen supaya
dia dapat membuat pasport baru untuk dirinya.

Setelah hampir sejam menunggu di perhentian bas, bas pun tiba. Chot
naik dan disebabkan bas itu penuh sesak, Chot mengambil keputusan untuk
berdiri sahaja sambil tangannya memegang gambar yang baru diambilnya di kedai
tadi.

Tiba-tiba, bas itu brek mengejut. Chot terlepas gambarnya itu lalu
jatuh ke bawah tempat duduk penumpang.
Chot tunduk dan mencari gambarnya itu tadi. Bila dia nampak gambar tadi
berada di bawah tempat duduk seorang penumpang, Chot berkata,

"Kak... Boleh tolong angkat sikit kain akak tu tak? Saya nak ambik gambar..."


KEMIK

Chot baru habis main bolasepak dan berjalan menuju ke kereta. Tiba di
keretanya, Chot dapati ada kesan kemik di sebelah pintu pemandu
keretanya seperti terkena bolasepak.

Keesokkan harinya, Chot membawa kereta itu ke woksyop. Mekanik di
woksyop tu yang sememangnya tahu akan ke'bendul'an Chot, cuba nak mempermainkan
Chot. Dia memberitahu, sekiranya Chot meniup melalui lubang ekzos
keretanya itu... pintu yang kemik itu akan kembung kembali dan
keretanya akan kelihatan seperti sediakala.

Maka, Chot pun pulang ke rumah dan mula meniup melalui lubang ekzos
keretanya itu. Tiada apa-apa yang berlaku. Chot meniup dengan lebih
kuat lagi namun tetap juga tiada apa-apa yang berlaku.

Teman serumahnya, Chet... keluar dan bertanya, "Apa hang buat tu?" Chot
menjelaskan kepada Chet bagaimana mekanik di woksyop tadi telah
mengarahkannya untuk meniup melalui ekzos kereta supaya kemikan di
pintu keretanya akan kembung semula..

Chet menggeleng-gelengkan kepala, ketawa berdekah-dekah sambil berkata,
"HELLLLO!! Awat la hang ni mangkuk sangat? Hang kena tutup semua cermin
tingkap kereta ni dulu!"


BUKU TEPON

Chot merempuh masuk ke satu perpustakaan awam dan meluru ke meja pendaftaran.
"Saya nak buat aduan! Saya nak komplen!" jerkah Chot.
" Ada apa, encik?" tanya pustakawan bertugas.
"Saya ada pinjam satu buku cerita dari sini minggu lepas dan ianya
sungguh mendukacitakan!" kata Chot.
"Apa masalahnya?" tanya pustakawan itu lagi.
"Banyak sangat watak dalam buku cerita tu dan saya tak paham langsung
apa yang cuba buku tu kisahkan. Tak ada jalan cerita langsung!"

Pustakawan tersebut berkata, "Ahh... jadi, encik ni la yang ambil buku
panduan telepon kami yang dah hilang dekat seminggu tu!"


MASA

Chot: "Chet, skrang dah pukui brapa?"
Chet: "3:15 petang."
Chot: (dgn mimik muka kehairanan) "Aku pelik lar, awat sumer orang nak
menipu dengan aku ari nih?"
Chet: "Awat lak? Bila lak aku tipu hang?"
Chot: "Sepanjang ari aku dok tanya masa kat orang, dan sepanjang ari
jugak la aku dapat jawapan yang berbeza. Tak dak sorang pun yang bagi jawapan
yang sama..."

The only chance for Malaysia to enter Football World Cup

the silent treatment

A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving each other the silent treatment.

Suddenly, the man realized that the next day, he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight.

Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper, "Please wake me at 5:00 AM." He left it where he knew she would find it.

The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight.

Furious, he was about to go and see why his wife hadn't wakened him, when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed. The paper said, "It is 5:00 AM, Wake up."

Do something nice

Unable to attend the funeral after his father died, a son who lived far away called his brother and told him, "Do something nice for Dad and send me the bill."

Later, he got a bill for $200.00, which he paid. The next month, he got another bill for $200.00, which he also paid, figuring it was some incidental expense.

Bills for $200.00 kept arriving every month, and finally the man called his brother again to find out what was going on.

"Well," said the other brother, "you said to do something nice for Dad. So I rented him a tuxedo."

The KGB assassin

The KGB had an opening for an assassin. After all of the background checks, interviews, and testing were done there were three finalists — two men and one woman. For the final test, the KGB agents took one of the men to a large metal door and handed him a gun.

“We must know that you will follow your instructions, no matter what the circumstances. Inside this room you will find your wife sitting in a chair. You have to kill her.”

The first man said.“You can’t be serious. I could never shoot my wife,”

The agent replies, “Then you’re not the right man for this job."

The second man was given the same instructions. He took the gun and went into the room. All was quiet for about five minutes.

Then the agent came out with tears in his eyes. “I tried, but I can’t kill my wife.” The agent replies, “You don’t have what it takes. Take your wife and go home.”

Finally, it was the woman’s turn. Only she was told to kill her husband. She took the gun and went into the room. Shots were heard, one shot after another. They heard screaming, crashing, banging on the walls. After a few minutes, all was quiet. The door opened slowly and there stood the woman.

She wiped the sweat from her brow and said, “You guys didn’t tell me the gun was loaded with blanks. So I had to beat him to death with the chair.”

What's Your Blood-Type???

The human body contains one of four main blood types: A, B, AB and O.

Each blood-type also has an accompanying Rhesus or Rh factor of either positive or negative.

The most commonly found blood-type in the world is O positive while the rarest is AB negative.

From the U.S population it was determined that the percentages of blood types were as follows.

O positive ~ 38.4%
O negative ~ 7.7%

A positive ~ 32.3%
A negative ~ 6.5%

B positive ~ 9.4%
B negative ~ 1.7%

AB positive ~ 3.2%
AB negative ~ 0.7%

So what blood type do you have? Are you really rare like me (AB-) or do you Have a more common popular blood type?

Keep Your Heart Strong and Healthy

In United States Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death. As of 2007, it is the leading cause of death in the United States, UK, Canada, killing one person every 34 seconds in the United States alone.

Every year millions of people suffer from this disease, and one of the main reasons behind it is an improper diet. Although you might know eating certain foods can increase your heart disease risk, it’s often tough to change your eating habits.

As such, it is very important for us to be aware of the correct diet to be followed in order to avoid being a victim of heart disease.

We need to cut down on foods having a high content of saturated and trans fat as they help in increasing the cholesterol level in our body which in turn leads to heart disease and a condition called as atherosclerosis which causes heart attack and strokes. In order to do this, we need to consume less solid fats such as butter, margarine, lard, bacon, gravy, cream sauce, non dairy creamers, cocoa butter, shortening, cookies, crackers and chips. We can use products like low fat yogurt and salsa as substitutes.

For cooking, we need to use mono saturated fats such as olive oil and canola oil instead of coconut, palm, cotton seed and palm-kernel oils.

We should get our daily proteins from low fat sources rather than high fat ones. Lean meat, poultry, fish, legumes such as peas, beans and lentils, skim or low fat milk, low fat yogurt, skinless poultry and soy beans and soy products are all excellent sources of proteins. We need to avoid full fat milk, organ meats, egg yolks, fatty meats, cold cuts, fried or canned meats and sausages.

Vegetables and fruits are a good source of vitamins and minerals and can help prevent cardiovascular diseases and as such we should learn to include a good amount of fruits and vegetables in our everyday diet. However, we should avoid vegetables with creamy sauces, fried or breaded vegetables and canned fruits. Whole grains also are a good source of fibers and nutrients and also help in regulating the heart pressure. We need to eat foods like whole wheat flour, whole wheat bread, brown rice, whole grain pasta , oatmeal and ground flaxseed to lower our cholesterol and avoid foods like muffins, waffles, corn bread, dough nuts, biscuits, quick breads, granola bars, cakes, pies, egg noodles, cakes and pies.

People who eat a lot of salt are prone to high blood pressure which is one of the symptoms of heart disease. The American Heart Association suggests that adults should eat less than 2,300 milligrams of salt on a daily basis. We need to reduce the amount of salt that we use in cooking and also stop eating canned or processed foods which contain a lot of salt. We should also not use tomato ketchups and sauces and substitute them with herbs, spices and reduced salt versions of condiments.

Thus, based on the above mentioned foods that need to be consumed for a healthy heart, we need to prepare a chart indicating the foods we need to consume on a daily basis and follow it properly. We should never eat more than required and exercise everyday to stay fit and have a healthy heart.

Eating a special diet called the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) eating plan also can help protect your heart. Following the DASH diet means eating foods that are low in fat, cholesterol and salt. The diet is rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low-fat dairy products that can help protect your heart. Legumes, low-fat sources of protein and certain types of fish can also reduce risk of heart disease.

10 Alkaline Foods and 10 Acid Foods for Perfect pH Balance

Alkaline foods and pH balance are not a typical daily topic of conversation. However, people who cycle, run, hike, play tennis, or do any physical activity and want to perform at peak levels of fitness, have a choice to make.

It’s a choice many never consider, but one of the most important for overall health and fitness. It stares you right in the face every time you look at a menu or a shelf full of groceries.

The choice to consider is whether or not a food or beverage is going to help you maintain proper pH balance, or is it going to throw that delicate balance off and leave your body’s defenses vulnerable to health problems.

In order to maintain suitable pH balance, nutritionists suggest 80% of dietary intake should be alkaline and 20% acid foods. What exactly does that mean? It is a widely accepted nutrition fact that the alkaline or acid properties of foods and drinks come into play when your body burns them for fuel.

Consuming too many acid foods, drugs, tobacco, sodas, cocktails, and coffee causes the pH balance of the blood to become overly acidic, therefore, out of balance. It’s kind of like a swimming pool that has an acid pH level, and as any pool owner knows that can cause problems.

When we refer to ALKALINE FOODS or ACID FOODS here we’re talking about what happens to them in the bloodstream after they have been consumed. All foods and drinks leave either an alkaline ash or an acid ash in the blood, depending on what happens to them after your body has burned them for fuel. This is what effects blood pH balance, as well as urine or saliva pH balance, which can all be tested different ways.

Here are 10 types of acid foods that create an acid ash when metabolized:

1. White flour (breads, pastas)
2. Refined sugars
3. Artificial sweeteners
4. Dairy products
5. Processed corn and many grain products
6. Meats
7. Fish
8. Nuts (not all of them, but most)
9. Cranberries (surprising, but true, even some healthy fruits and vegetables can form an acid ash)
10. Coffee and sodas

Here are 10 good choices for alkaline foods to help maintain proper pH balance in the bloodstream:

1. Almonds (raw)
2. Apples
3. Avocados
4. Canteloupe
5. Leafy green lettuce and spinach
6. Citrus fruits
7. Broccoli
8. Cantaloupe
9. Carrots
10. Peas

A human being’s blood pH level is meant to stay around 7.4, so the body is constantly working to sustain that pH balance, no matter what you consume. When the body has to neutralize more acid than it is designed for, the best place to find a readily available supply of something alkaline enough to perform that function is in your bones. If the consumption of alkaline food and drinks is insufficient to do the job, then calcium from bones will be utilized in order to neutralize excess acid in the bloodstream.

It is a nutrition fact that too many acid foods such as meat, sugar, dairy, and refined flour products can cause a body’s pH balance to be too acidic. This can lead to all sorts of health problems, not the least of which is bone weakness.

A calcium supplement may help. However, if the calcium is not from a whole food source, the body does not absorb it as efficiently due to the lack of live enzymes, but more about that in a future article. The best whole food sources for calcium are broccoli, green leafy vegetables, and other alkaline foods with live enzymes.

The easiest way to consume the 80% alkaline foods you need each day is with concentrated health drinks that are heavily weighted to the alkaline side of the scale. Look for products made with real fruit and food grade herbs, because we know that most of those natural whole food ingredients are alkaline by nature. As you consume more alkaline foods and drinks for proper pH balance, your body will come into its own perfect balance and your overall health will reflect a positive change.

Maths In Quran

Dr. Tariq Al Swaidan discovered some verses in the Holy Quran that mention one thing is equal to another, i.e, the number of words for man and women are equal.Although this makes sense mathematically, the astonishing fact is that the number of times the word man appears in the Quran is 24 and number of times the word woman appears is also 24,therefore not only is this phrase correct in the grammatical sense but also true mathematically: 24=24.
Upon further analysis of various verses, he discovered that this is consistent throughout the whole Quran, where it says one thing is like another. See below for astonishing results:-

The word number of times mentioned in Arabic Quran:
Dunia (one name for life) 115 . Akhirat (one name for the lifeafter) 115
Malaikat (Angels) 88 . Shaytan (Satan) 88
Life 145 . Death 145
Benefit 50 . Corrupt 50
People 50 .Messengers 50
Eblees (king of devils) 11 . Seek refuge from Eblees 11
Museebah (calamity) 75 . Thanks 75
Spending (Sadaqah) 73 . Satisfaction 73
People who are misled 17 . Dead people 17
Muslimeen 41 . Jihad 41
Gold 8 . Easy life 8
Magic 60 . Fitnah (dissuasion, misleading) 60
Zakat ( Taxes Muslims pay to the poor) 32 .
Barakah (Increasing or blessings of wealth) 32
Mind 49 . Noor 49
Tongue 25 . Sermon 25
Desire 8 . Fear 8
Speaking publicly 18 . Publicising 18
Hardship 114 . Patience 114
Muhammed 4 . Sharee*ah (Muhammed's teachings) 4
Man 24 . Women 24

And amazingly enough have a look how many times the following words appear:-
Solat 5; Month 12; Day 365;
Sea 32; Land 13; Sea + land = 32+13= 45%Sea=32/45*100=71.11111111%
Land=13/45*100= 28.88888889=100.00
Modern science has only recently proven that the water covers 71.111% of the earth, while the land covers 28.889%. Is this a coincidence ?
Who taught Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) all this?
Allah, the All Mighty taught him this. As the Quran tells us.


"The Soul is like a glass lamp, and knowledge is light (giving fire), and the wisdom of God is the oil, If it is lit, you are alive,and if it is darkened, you are dead"-- Ibn Sina
