Get a new IP without router reset, VPN or connection reset

How to change ip address without proxy or vpnIn the past, there were more and more – the websites on which a specific action was allowed to run only X times a day. Today, it’s more like geo-blocking – locking out certain users based on their country of origin. However, both variants are based on the same technique: the evaluation of the IP address. In the first case, accesses from an IP address are counted (in addition to cookies) – in the second case, a database is used to evaluate where in the world the user behind a specific IP address is staying. Both locks can often be bypassed by changing the IP address.
There are several ways to change the IP address. To bypass a “count lock”, disconnecting the Internet connection […]

Update: WordPress2Doc 1.2.8.5

WordPress2Doc - 1.2.8.5 ReleaseRound about 8 months ago, I release the last WordPress2Doc update. Some may have thought that the project has fallen asleep. But that is not the case.

Change Logitech FN-key behaviour without software

Change standard FN-key behaviourToday there is once again a short tip – this time for all owners of Logitech keyboards with a FN-key. Some time ago I was looking for a new keyboard. Criterion: Parallel usage of several devices – usually via Bluetooth. In the end the choice fell on the Logitech K375s. Stylish design, support for up to 3 devices that can be connected via Bluetooth or Logitech Unifying receiver. Only one small problem remained: the FN key.

By pressing the FN key, the second assignment of individual keys can be activated. For example: You can control the volume by pressing the F12 key while holding down the FN key. So that’s the way I would prefer it at least. In practice, the FN key is active the […]

Digistore24 – Product catalog as Excel

Digistore Product Catalog as ExcelMost readers of this blog who are on the road to online marketing should have heard about Digistore24. With over 50,000 members and more than 3,500 products, it is probably the largest German marketplace for digital products.
Unfortunately with so many products their product catalog lost the clearness in some way. Although Digistore24 offers detailed information on each product, such as reward, churn rate, average reward per cart, etc., these criteria can not be filtered in the product list. As an affiliate, who is looking for a product which fits the own needs, one is left stranded.

That’s why I wrote a small tool, which makes a complete deduction of the listed products and writes them into a sortable and filterable Excel table. Thus, […]

Windows 10: Fix wrong time

Fix-Win-10-wrong-time-problemFor some time, I was plagued by a small, but not less annoying, issue on Windows 10. The system time drifted intermittently one hour off. A manual changeover of the time brought success only in the short term. After a while the clock went wrong again.
The correct time zone and summer/winter time (daylight saving time) were selected in the Windows time and date settings and the automatic synchronization of the time was activated. Nevertheless the Windows clock did what it wants, but not what it was supposed to do.
Finally I found the solution to the problem inside the Windows services menu. The automatic time synchronization service was disabled. Now, after I activated the Windows Time service, the system time is correct again. You can activate the service as follows.

Press Win-Taste + R key
Enter services.msc and click ok, to start […]
