when he get the super power..++


There are heroes....there are superheroes...and then there’s Hancock (Will Smith). With great power comes great responsibility – everyone knows that – everyone, that is, but Hancock. Edgy, conflicted, sarcastic, and misunderstood, Hancock’s well-intentioned heroics might get the job done and save countless lives, but always seem to leave jaw-dropping damage in their wake. The public has finally had enough – as grateful as they are to have their local hero, the good citizens of Los Angeles are wondering what they ever did to deserve this guy. Hancock isn’t the kind of man who cares what other people think – until the day that he saves the life of PR executive Ray Embrey (Jason Bateman), and the sardonic superhero begins to realize that he may have a vulnerable side after all. Facing that will be Hancock’s greatest challenge yet – and a task that may prove impossible as Ray’s wife, Mary (Charlize Theron), insists that he’s a lost cause.

How to Beat the Chocobo Trainer in Final Fantasy X

Step 1:
Put the game on mute. The music may be cute and fun, but its only cute and fun for so long before it becomes irritating. Add to that the frustration of constantly being close to your objective then losing, and its time for a change of pace. Put on something that motivates you.

Step 2:
Find the controller that works for you. The game says to use the left and right buttons, but if you’re the type that works better with the stick, use that instead. Many find the stick to give more fluid motions, and for this challenge, fluid is essential.

Step 3:
Start out easy. To start with, just try and beat the goal of 45 seconds. This is easy enough, and will give you a taste of how it really works. From here, try and run the race without getting hit by a bird. Once you've done that, try running the race and hitting 13 balloons. If you can do all of those, you're ready to do them all together!

Step 4:
Know the goal. In order to successfully beat the trainer and earn the Sigil, you need to hit 13 balloons, 0 birds and finish the race with a time of less than 39 seconds. For every bird you hit, you need another 2 balloons (1 to cover the birdstrike and another to cover the time you lost getting hit.) Getting 13 balloons is tough enough, considering their random placement and the trainer’s ability to snag ones you were hoping to get, so really try not to get hit.

Step 5:
Get as many balloons as you can in the initial stretch. This is CRTICALLY important! This is the ONLY stretch of race that you needn’t worry about the birds on. Therefore, concentrate all your energy in the first leg on snagging every balloon! If you can snag 5 or 6 here, you’ve got the makings of a win! If you walk away with less than 3, get ready for a hard race and if you get none at all, the race is a writeoff.

Step 6:
Try and stay as straight as possible. This is really hard since the camera angle is jerky and changes constantly, but after a few runs, you’ll get a good sense of where its going to go.

Step 7:
Stay in the middle of the track as much as possible. Believe it or not, the racetrack, while having the appearance of a wide open field, is actually quite narrow. Bumping the edges causes the camera to jerk and leaves you only one avenue of escape for incoming birds. Try and stay in the middle, so that way you can dodge to both sides instead of just one. Unfortunately, this has the double edge of letting you escape birds easily while exposing you to more of them.

Step 8:
Try your best to make course changes in advance. Jerking towards that balloon at the last minute almost always ends in disaster.

Step 9:
Try, try again! It may take you a hundred races to get the Sigil, but rest assured, the prize is worth the effort. Good luck!

How to Secure Your Wireless Network

Step 1:
Secure your wireless router or access point administration interface Most routers and access points have an administrator password that's needed to log into the device and modify any configuration settings. Most devices use a weak default password like "password" or the manufacturer's name, and some don't have a default password at all. As soon as you set up a new WLAN router or access point, your first step should be to change the default password to something else. You may not use this password very often, so be sure to write it down in a safe place so you can refer to it if needed. Without it, the only way to access the router or access point may be to reset it to factory default settings which will wipe away any configuration changes you've made.

Step 2:
Don't broadcast your SSID Most WLAN access points and routers automatically (and continually) broadcast the network's name, or SSID (Service Set IDentifier). This makes setting up wireless clients extremely convenient since you can locate a WLAN without having to know what it's called, but it will also make your WLAN visible to any wireless systems within range of it. Turning off SSID broadcast for your network makes it invisible to your neighbors and passers-by (though it will still be detectible by WLAN "sniffers").

Step 3:
Enable WPA encryption instead of WEP Enable WPA encryption instead of WEP 802.11's WEP (Wired Equivalency Privacy) encryption has well-known weaknesses that make it relatively easy for a determined user with the right equipment to crack the encryption and access the wireless network. A better way to protect your WLAN is with WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access). WPA provides much better protection and is also easier to use, since your password characters aren't limited to 0-9 and A-F as they are with WEP. WPA support is built into Windows XP (with the latest Service Pack) and virtually all modern wireless hardware and operating systems. A more recent version, WPA2, is found in newer hardware and provides even stronger encryption, but you'll probably need to download an XP patch in order to use it.

Step 4:
Remember that WEP is better than nothing If you find that some of your wireless devices only support WEP encryption (this is often the case with non-PC devices like media players, PDAs, and DVRs), avoid the temptation to skip encryption entirely because in spite of it's flaws, using WEP is still far superior to having no encryption at all. If you do use WEP, don't use an encryption key that's easy to guess like a string of the same or consecutive numbers. Also, although it can be a pain, WEP users should change encryption keys often-- preferably every week.

Step 5:
Use MAC filtering for access control Use MAC filtering for access control Unlike IP addresses, MAC addresses are unique to specific network adapters, so by turning on MAC filtering you can limit network access to only your systems (or those you know about). In order to use MAC filtering you need to find (and enter into the router or AP) the 12-character MAC address of every system that will connect to the network, so it can be inconvenient to set up, especially if you have a lot of wireless clients or if your clients change a lot. MAC addresses can be "spoofed" (imitated) by a knowledgable person, so while it's not a guarantee of security, it does add another hurdle for potential intruders to jump.

Step 6:
Reduce your WLAN transmitter power You won't find this feature on all wireless routers and access points, but some allow you lower the power of your WLAN transmitter and thus reduce the range of the signal. Although it's usually impossible to fine-tune a signal so precisely that it won't leak outside your home or business, with some trial-and-error you can often limit how far outside your premises the signal reaches, minimizing the opportunity for outsiders to access your WLAN.

Step 7:
Disable remote administration Most WLAN routers have the ability to be remotely administered via the Internet. Ideally, you should use this feature only if it lets you define a specific IP address or limited range of addresses that will be able to access the router. Otherwise, almost anyone anywhere could potentially find and access your router. As a rule, unless you absolutely need this capability, it's best to keep remote administration turned off. (It's usually turned off by default, but it's always a good idea to check.)

How to Secure a PC on Broadband

Step 1:

Jot down the current network settings
Start by getting your current network settings. This can be done by opening a Command Window (DOS) and typing in IPCONFIC /ALL

Step 2:
Find a Cheap Router ( wired is best if you don't have the need for wireless ). Searching Froogle will give you plenty of options. If you're not going to use the wireless function, disable it completely using the manufacturers instructions.

Step 3:
Plug the ethernet cable that came with the router into the WLAN port on the router.

Step 4:
Plug the other end of the ethernet cable into the ethernet port on the cable modem.

Step 5:
Connect the router power supply to the router

Step 6:
Connect an ethernet cable to 1 of the LAN ports on the Router and the other end into your computer.

Step 7:
Turn on your computer If the router(most do) has a DHCP server built into it, your PC will get an IP address for the router.

Step 8:
After the computer has finished starting up, try and visit a web site to see if your computer has gotten a connection.

Step 9:
Check your network settings as in STEP 1, if you do not have a DNS setting, you may have to manually enter using the manufacturers instructions.

Welcome to IPV6

What is IPv6?

IPv6 is short for "Internet Protocol Version 6". IPv6 is the "next generation" protocol designed by the IETF to replace the current version Internet Protocol, IP Version 4 ("IPv4").

Most of today's internet uses IPv4, which is now nearly twenty years old. IPv4 has been remarkably resilient in spite of its age, but it is beginning to have problems. Most importantly, there is a growing shortage of IPv4 addresses, which are needed by all new machines added to the Internet.

IPv6 fixes a number of problems in IPv4, such as the limited number of available IPv4 addresses. It also adds many improvements to IPv4 in areas such as routing and network autoconfiguration. IPv6 is expected to gradually replace IPv4, with the two coexisting for a number of years during a transition period.

Some introductory information about the protocol can be found in our IPv6 FAQ. For those interested in the technical details, we have a list of IPv6 related specifications.

Where can I get an IPv6 implementation for my system?

There is software available for most operating systems in common use today. Find your favorite OS on our list of IPv6 implementations. We also have a collection of "how to install" documents for various systems.

What applications run over IPv6 today?

Many common Internet applications already work with IPv6, and more are being ported. See our list of IPv6 enabled applications.

How can I get help with IPv6? Or find out more about it?

A new mailing list for IPv6 users has been established. If you are interested in deploying IPv6 for your site, this could be a valuable resource for you. We've also compiled a list of other sites with IPv6 information.

IPv6 address formats

The IPv6 address size is 128 bits. The preferred IPv6 address representation is: xxxx:xxxx:xxxx:xxxx:xxxx:xxxx:xxxx:xxxx where each x is a hexadecimal digit representing 4 bits. IPv6 addresses range from 0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000 to ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff.

In addition to this preferred format, IPv6 addresses may be specified in two other shortened formats:

  • Omit leading zeros
    Specify IPv6 addresses by omitting leading zeros. For example, IPv6 address 1050:0000:0000:0000:0005:0600:300c:326b may be written as 1050:0:0:0:5:600:300c:326b.
  • Double colon
    Specify IPv6 addresses by using double colons (::) in place of a series of zeros. For example, IPv6 address ff06:0:0:0:0:0:0:c3 may be written as ff06::c3. Double colons may be used only once in an IP address.

An alternative format for IPv6 addresses combines the colon and dotted notation, so the IPv4 address may be embedded in the IPv6 address. Hexadecimal values are specified for the left-most 96 bits, and decimal values are specified for the right-most 32 bits indicating the embedded IPv4 address. This format ensures compatibility between IPv6 nodes and IPv4 nodes when you are working in a mixed network environment.

These two types of IPv6 addresses use this alternative format:

  • IPv4–mapped IPv6 address
    This type of address is used to represent IPv4 nodes as IPv6 addresses. It allows IPv6 applications to communicate directly with IPv4 applications. For example, 0:0:0:0:0:ffff: and ::ffff: (shortened format).
  • IPv4–compatible IPv6 address
    This type of address is used for tunneling. It allows IPv6 nodes to communicate across an IPv4 infrastructure. For example, 0:0:0:0:0:0: and ::
    (shortened format).

Top 10: 2008 Dream Cars

Number 10 BMW 1-Series Coupe 2008 BMW 1-series - Credit:

The new BMW 1-series coupe is the No. 10 entry on this countdown. It's ranking is not based solely on performance (oh yeah, it has that too), but also on the merit of merging world-class German engineering with affordability. Implemented to stuff the price margin between the MINI Cooper and the 3-Series, both the 128i and 135i receive a cache of M-derived components with aero kits and sport bucket seats. Both variants are outfitted with a featherweight aluminum front suspension and five-link rear axle, frame-less doors to shave curb weight, L-shaped tail lamps with LED accents and corona daytime running lights. The 128i will feature a valvetronic, 3.0-liter engine complete with 230 horses and 200 lb-ft of torque, as its 135i sibling packs a bigger punch with the same block adorned with a twin-turbo, good for an even 300 horsepower and an equivalent amount of torque -- all for an estimated $30,000 price tag.

Number 9 Mercedes GL5502008 Mercedes Benz GL550 - Credit:

The luxury sport utility class has always been one that's difficult to navigate with the abundance of choice options, but we think Mercedes has an ace up its sleeve with the GL550 in 2008. Its predecessor, the multi-award winning GL450, was an exceptional light truck and served as the platform for the newer model. The German manufacturer has made aesthetic improvements over lesser-powered offerings -- primarily because there is no AMG trim to date -- that include a deeper grille, flared fenders, blue tinted windows, height-adjustable air suspension, and an enlarged three-pointed star badge borrowed from the Vision GL420 concept car seen at the Detroit Auto Show. The under-hood kinetics are also generously upgraded, tacking on 47 extra ponies that take the GL550 from a 335 horsepower, 4.7-liter V8 to the 382 horsepower, 5.5-liter V8. All of this and three-row seating for $65,000 -- it's no wonder this is a 2008 dream car.

Number 8 Lamborghini Reventon Lamborghini Reventon - Credit:

We almost feel it's unnecessary to have to elaborate on this amazing feat in automotive engineering. If you haven't seen or heard about the Reventon, it's time to crawl out from under your rock and embrace the latest and greatest in vehicular epiphanies. Shaped like an fighter jet, the Lambo Reventon cuts through the asphalt like a laser with a 0-60 mph time of a jaw-dropping 3.4 seconds. Which is not surprising, seeing as a brutish 6.5-liter, V12 engine pushes out 641 horsepower to make the Reventon both beautiful and deadly. With a price tag upward of $1 million, it's no wonder this raging bull made it on our list of 2008 dream cars, but even if it wasn't reserved for the very rich and famous, we'd still be dreaming about it...

Number 7 Lotus Exige S 2402008 Lotus Exige S 240 - Credit:

The allure of the short-sport scene has always been the ideal power-to-weight ratio, and no one understands this better than the small UK manufacturer, Lotus. They have built on this formula by unveiling the bantam 8.8 pound-per-horsepower Exige S 240. Fundamentally, it's a two-seat coupe alternative to the Elise roadster with a little more kick and an enlarged scoop that was repositioned from the mid-roof all the way up to the top of the windshield. The Toyota-supplied, 1.8-liter, 16-valve, DOHC, supercharged, 4-cylinder mill that introduced the previous generation remains a welcomed constant. However, for ’08 standards, there’s a beefed up clutch and a bonus 20 ponies, raising the total to 240 horsepower. What’s so special about 240 marginally average horsepower? Nothing, save for when it’s the force behind an airy 2,000-pound machine. The newest pocket-rocket Exige will still maneuver just inches above the ground and with a variable-traction and a variable-launch control function, it can hit the 60 mph mark in 4.0 seconds flat and do 100 mph in a tick shy of 10 seconds.

Number 6 Jaguar XF2008 Jaguar XF - Credit:

Jaguar and its parent company Ford, have nixed the mid-size luxury sports sedan S Type from its roster in favor of the 2008 Jaguar XF. Mounted atop a widened chassis of its predecessor and virtually a carbon copy of the C-XF concept saloon car, it varies most tangibly around the front head lamps and nose, with an oval, mesh grille circa the 1968 XJ. Although flashback influenced production has long been key in the designer’s blueprints, the inner workings have progressively advanced. The engine designations are a derivative of the S Type, but the suspension package and bearings, as well as the 4.2-liter, supercharged V8, are adopted from the 420 horsepower XK. A push-start feature, tuned exhaust system and a sophisticated, paddle-shifted, six-speed automatic transmission that switches cogs 10% faster than the outgoing model also seem to fit the bill. Orders will be taken as of March 2008, with a base price of $49,975.

Number 5 Lexus IS-FLexus IS-F - Credit:

In previous years, Toyota’s upper-crust affiliate Lexus has been scrutinized for its lack of performance branding. In the fore coming year, the luxury line attempts to break this stigma with the IS-F. Lexus disclosed at the 2007 North American Auto show that the “F” designation was the codename for its very first sketch some 20 years ago. But we assure you this four-door should be a staple for future generations. Crafted on a highly modified skeleton of the IS 250 and 350 sedans, it utilizes an aluminum-block, 32-valve, DOHC, 5.0-liter V8, with an intelligent variable-valve timing configuration and direct-to-cylinder injection with secondary port injectors, amassing 416 horsepower and more than 370 lb-ft of torque. Above all else, the greatest ingenuity was applied to the world’s first paddle-shifted eight-speed automatic transmission. Finessed correctly via the well-proportioned gear ratios and the pilot should reach 0-60 mph in just 4.9 seconds. The IS-F doesn’t skimp on aesthetics either, being treated with a bulging hood, sleek front fenders and vents, rear deck spoiler and quad-tail afterburners.

Number 4 Aston Martin DBSAston Martin DBS - Credit:

If secret agent James Bond drove the wheels off it, it’s a safe bet that it must be a dream car. The modern Aston Martin DBS, not to be confused with the former DBS of the same moniker produced on the Grand Tourer coupe from 1967-'72, is the highest trim offered from the British factory and replaces the equally dreamy Vanquish S as the flagship on the roster. It is solely presented in a two-seat coupe format as opposed to the 2+2 setup in its DB9 origin. The DBS was welded with a bonded chassis comprised of aluminum, lightweight magnesium alloy and carbon-fiber composite. This marks the first commercially produced vehicle to incorporate such a considerable use of carbon fiber body panels for the marque. Escaping arch villains became easy for 007 with a hand-altered 6.0-liter, V12 motor transplanted from the DBR9 race car, tuned to dispel 510 horsepower at his disposal. The DBS, with its six-speed manual transmission and $265,000 sticker, hits showroom floors presumably this coming spring.

Number 3 Bentley Brooklands2008 Bentley Brooklands - Credit:

When a manufacturer sends word that they are to resurrect a previous triumph, it's usually with good reason. The 2008 Bentley Brooklands is an example of one such second coming. Inaugurated initially in 1992, the Brooklands enjoyed success in the full-size luxury saloon bracket as the marque’s top-seller when the Bentley Eight and Mulsanne were retired, but was put out of commission in ’98 for the Arnage. 2008 will see the nameplate’s return in the form of a two-door, four-seat coupe. As tradition has it, the three-door GT will be manually assembled and adhere to a strict lifetime production cap of 550 units. The handsome heavyweight’s output is managed by a six-speed auto-stick as the powerplant is a dual turbocharged, 6.75-liter, 8-cylinder, which tallies 530 horsepower and 774 lb-ft of torque -- making it the most powerful engine ever composed by Volkswagen’s British arm, Bentley.

Number 2 Audi R82008 Audi R8 - Credit:

Audi has a knack for leaking just enough spy photos and engine specifications to keep the consumer clamoring about their freshest inductee -- even years before it’s slated for release. We first caught a glimpse of the Audi R8 back in 2006, since then its exceptional performance and visual prowess has generated quite the worldwide buzz. Many have speculated it to be just another luxury sports car, but the German-based camp insists otherwise of the Quattro AWD, mid-engine supercar based on the Le Mans Quattro concept ride. The naturally aspirated, 420 horsepower, 4.2-liter, FSI V8 has already bested the Porsche 911 Carrera 4S, Aston Martin Vantage and the BMW M6, with a 0-60 mph time of 4.0 seconds, a quarter mile run of 12.5 seconds at 113.2 mph, and a max speed of 187 mph. There are similarities between the R8, the Ferrari F430 and externally the Lamborghini Gallardo -- and these aren’t a bad pair to be compared to if you ask us.

Number 1 Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead2008 Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead - Credit:

There is something to be said for the credit of any marquee that has been in production long enough to celebrate their centennial in 2004. BMW fostered Rolls-Royce and threw their party at the Geneva Motor Show, unveiling the 100 EX concept car. This fluid sketch in 2004, heavily influenced the all-new 2007 Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe. The cloth top is a new addition for the world’s longest convertible, as the two suicide doors are a traditional remainder of the world’s best-selling and most-prestigious luxury saloon. Although every panel has been reworked, the hand-molded aluminum space frame cage is in accord with the base Phantom. It varies in that it has broader sills, a 10-inch shorter wheelbase and a slightly better tuned direct-injection, 6.7-liter, V12, provoking 453 horsepower, mated to a six-speed ZF gearbox. This limited production is the king of the countdown at a stout $412,000.
