RARBG Tracker not Working? Read Why + Fix it!

One of the most popular torrent websites called RARBG did shut down a couple of days ago.

They only show a short message on their website now, lots of excuses.
Below is a screenshot from RARBG.

But the main reason is probably that the people behind the website is from Bulgaria.

Bulgaria is more or less “forced” by the USA to create a new law that aims to criminalize and prosecute people who create conditions for piracy.

If someone is convicted, there’s a chance to get a prison sentences of up to 6 years.

Get more seeders and peers to download torrents from.

I assume you’re downloading legal torrents of course.
But you might have problems to find new seeders and peers to download from.

You can add more trackers to find more seeders & peers!

1: Just copy the torrent tracker list.

2: Open your BitTorrent client, select the torrent. Click on the tab trackers.
And then right click in the tracker list add add the list you’ve just copied.
(This apply to qBitTorrent, it may vary from the torrent software you’re using.)

3: In qBitTorrent: Go to Tools / Preferences / Click on the BitTorrent icon.
Enable DHT and also PEX.

4: Now, click on the Advance icon.
Close to the bottom of the list of features, you’ll see:
“Always announce to all trackers” and “Always announce to all tiers”.
Enable both of them.

If you need a good BitTorrent client, you can download qBitTorrent here.

Optimize Google Analytics 4 page load time

Google will take you sites loading time into account when ranking your website.
So you want to make it as fast as possible.

If you use Google Analytics and maybe also Google Adsense, then they might be a big factor why your site is loading slowly.

With a pretty small code snippet you can increase the loading time with GP4.

Increase your website loading time with this Google Analytics code. (GP4)

It might be a bit hard for some people to set this up if you’re not a savvy user that are OK with getting dirty with file-editing and messing with the code.

Here’s the site with the code snippet and a tutorial how to set it up.

SOLVED! Stop the noise/static sound in Linux

A while ago I posted a crappy quick fix solution for the static, buzzing noise sound problem that a lot of Linux users have. It seems to be a pretty common problem for those who run Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Xubuntu and also other Linux distros.

I finally figured out what was causing the problem.
I’ll explain how to fix the problem with the crackling noise in Linux below.

The solution to the static noise problem in Linux

Open the terminal and type:
sudo nano /etc/pulse/default.pa

You will now have to type your admin password.
Once the file is open in nano, press CTRL + W to open the search field.
Type “suspend” without the quotes and press Enter.

You will now see this line:

### Automatically suspend sinks/sources that become idle for too long
load-module module-suspend-on-idle

You need to disable this line. Just type “#” without the quotes in front of the line with the text “load-module module-suspend-on-idle”.

It should now look like this:

### Automatically suspend sinks/sources that become idle for too long
#load-module module-suspend-on-idle

Save the file by pressing CTRL + S. Then exit with CTRL + X.

Reboot your computer.

Hopefully you’ll be free from the annoying static sound.

Bookmarklet: Download videos from websites

It’s pretty annoying sometimes that you cant download a video you’re watching from a website.

I’ve found a bookmarklet that will let you download streaming videos from some websites.
And no, sorry, it does not work with YouTube. But it does work on lots of other “tube sites” and other kind of websites.

Download videos from websites - Bookmarklet

To use it you just have to create a new bookmark for the JavaScript code.

So go into “Manage Bookmarks” or whatever it’s called in the web browser you’re using.

Create a new bookmark with this JavaScript code in the URL field:

javascript:(function(xs){for(var i=0;i<xs.length;++i){if(xs[i].currentSrc){var a=document.createElement('a');a.target='_blank';a.download='';a.href=xs[i].currentSrc;a.click();return;}}})(document.querySelectorAll('audio,video'));

Enter a name for the bookmark and save/create it.

Go to a website with videos you can stream.
Play a video on that website and while it’s playing, click on the bookmark you just created.

If it works, a new window/tab will open up and the only thing showing is the video you want to download.
You can now right click on the video that is playing in the new windows and choose to save it.

But as I did mention, it doesn’t work on some websites. But it’s still worth a try.

While we’re speaking about bookmarklets, take a look at this bookmarklet that will load and show all pictures in open directories.

Are you having the string “c0ffeec0-ffee-c0ff-eec0-ffeec0ffeec0” as Mozilla Firefox Client ID?

It looks pretty weird right?

Lots of people wonder if they’ve been hacked. Or if their computer have been infected by some kind of virus or malware.

c0ffeec0-ffee-c0ff-eec0-ffeec0ffeec0 - Do you want to know what it is?

The reason you see c0ffeec0-ffee-c0ff-eec0-ffeec0ffeec0 as a client ID in Firefox web browser is because you have opt out of the Firefox Telemetry.

It’s a string that replaces the otherwise unique Firefox client ID. I admit it looks weird.
