MySQL Explorer: Import And View MySQL Database From Desktop

MySQL is one of the well-known database management software applications and almost all open source applications use MySQL at the back-end.  

MySQL Explorer lets you view and explore MySQL databases quickly, a small handy application for database administrators, webmasters, and developers.

It is a portable application. Specify the username and password to connect to MySQL, once your connection is established then it will list down all the available databases.

Click the Database name in the first list box and it will populate  the related tables for the selected database.

You can use the navigation buttons to move back and forth through out your tables.

MySQL Explorer Navigation

The Import Database option lets you import another database to your MySQL server. All you need is a schema file for MySQL. This can also be immensely helpful to the webmaster who won’t need to go all the way to PhpMyAdmin only to import the database.

Since the application’s main purpose is to view the database, export and delete functionality is thus not available at the moment. If you want such functionality, just give a shout to the developer and let him know.

Download MySQL Explorer

We tested it successfully on Windows 7, it works with all previous versions of Windows as well.

Import MySQL Database From phpMyAdmin To MS Access

phpMyAdmin is used for storing databases, with simple and dead easy interface, you can handle MySQL databases in a convenient way.
But when it comes to exporting data to novice-user oriented applications, it doesn’t support direct data migration.
If you are looking for way for data migration/transfer from phpMyAdmin to Microsoft Excel or Access, then this post may help.

Open phpMyAdmin, Select database you want to export, and click Export.


You will reach Export window, choose the format in which you want to export the database. We will choose CSV for Excel, enable zipped radio button from save as file options, and hit GO button at the bottom-right of the window to start exporting data.


You will be prompt for choosing output destination for the file. Download the file and unzip it.


Open the exported file in Excel 2010, to check whether data fields are still intact or not.


On File menu, click Save As to save the file in xlsx format.


Now launch Access 2010, head over to External Data and click Excel to import worksheet.


You will see Get External Data dialog box, it shows three different options of how and to where database will be stored. Go through the options (with details) and select one. We need to create a database in which table will be created by Access automatically.


Since the first row not contain the column headings, so we will leave this step, click Next.


In this step you can specify information about each of the fields you are importing. Select field/column in the area below and  specify corresponding Field Options. Click Next to continue.


Here you can define a primary key(unique identifier) for the table, enable Choose my own primary key and select Field1 which seems to contain auto_increment data type.


Give the table an appropriate name and click Finish.

wizard 5

The database table from phpMyAdmin through Excel is successfully inserted into Access.


For adding more fields and applying constraints, switch to Design View.


Note: The above demonstration shows data migration of small database, there is however no guarantee of successful migration if you need to export huge databases.


Transfer MS Access Database To MySQL In 4 Simple Steps

     Transferring database from one system to another is always a headache regardless of how big or small the migration scale is.

Therefore, database managers, generally, look out for a simple tool which can perform export and import operations with all the variations involved.

If you’re planning to migrate data from Access to MySql, you’d probably have a lot methods in mind to port databases.

Before implementing any of them, try MS Access to MySQL

It is an ingeniously simple utility to quickly port Access database to user-defined MySql database. 
While it supports a wide range of database formats, including, MDB, MDE, ACCDB, and ACCDE, it shows MySql database hierarchy to choose the destination database path. Furthermore, password protected (encrypted) databases can also be exported on the fly without having to decrypt them.

It allows two transfer modes – Direct transfer and Dump file creation. In direct transfer mode, you need to enter the host address, port, DB username and password along with DB name where data has to be directly ported, optionally, you can choose a local location to create SQL dump file for importing it later.

It has a simple wizard with 3-4 steps for transferring data. In the first step specify source database, second step refers to choosing transfer type. Depending upon the type, it will ask you to choose options in latter steps. In direct transfer mode, enter the all required information for establishing connection, specify DB name, and pick out the storage engine.


In the last step of direct transfer, it will ask you to choose some database transfer-related options, such as, Transfer indexes and records, Include column list in INSERT, create tables, and so on. Depending upon the requirements, select the appropriate options and click Run Now to begin the process.


Creating Sql Dump file needs nothing except specifying the target location where you want to save the Sql file. After the transfer is completed, it is recommended to thoroughly verify the the database migration including all the included tables with indexes to prevent any conflicts in the future. It works on Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7.

Find Out Who Is Stealing Your Articles And Keep Check On Plagiarism

Unique Content verifier, also called UN.CO.VER, is an application for Windows, Mac and Linux based operating systems that verifies the specified content from the internet and displays a result of websites that have copied it.

Just copy and paste the text from an article to see what websites have the matching text.
This can be used by not just authors to check if someone has copied their article but also by teachers who might be interested in verifying student assignments.

UN.CO.VER can be used not just to for general verification over the internet but also with a single URL and an entire website (inclusive of primary and sub-domains).

To get started, either copy & paste the content from an article or manually type it and click Check Now.

This will display the websites that contain matching content. It must be noted however, that if the content match is as negligible as 15-30 percent, then it might be a case of mere coincidence. On the contrary if the content is displayed as 50% or more as copied, then it is easily verifiable if someone as copied content from a certain source. During testing I found it quite interesting that no matter what term I entered, Wikipedia seemed to be the result of the duplicate content. This obviously because it is an enormous resource filled with zillions of text pages and some extent of content (e.g. 2 %) is likely to match any of its articles.

UN.CO.VER - Unique Content Verifier 2.0
Domains can also be checked by entering the Domain name, text (optional)  and clicking on the Check Now button.  Web projects can also be loaded (via the Check Websites tab) and verified for plagiarism. Any link that contains a copy of the same content can be opened by double clicking on it (from the result).

Check Domain

With UN.CO.VER the days of ripping information off other websites (at least for students) can soon be over. It works with Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.

Multiple ISO Images Into Single Multiboot USB / ISO File With XBoot

XBoot is a powerful application which is designed on the idea of creating multi-boot ISO/USB from a set of ISO image files.

Until the release of XBoot, there was apparently no easy way to collect multiple ISO files into one package.

The application also comes with number of supported websites where you can download the ISO file which can be used to create bootable USB or a collective ISO image to burn on optical disk.  Since many software application developers roll out their utilities in ISO image format, it can be utterly useful to make an amalgamate of all essential ISO images.

Furthermore, checksum calculator is also deployed within the application to verify the original release of inserted ISO image.

The application offers easy usage catering to both amateurs and pros alike. All you need is to drag & drop the ISO images from local location into it. It will then automatically start calculating the total size while letting user make suitable alternations to inserted ISO image title. From right sidebar, you can calculate the MD5, SHA-1, SHA-256, etc, checksum.

xboot 1

The connected USB flash drives can be selected from Edit MultiBoot USB. Alongside, you can edit Grub4dos bootloader config file and install it.

XBoot 2

After you’ve included all the ISO images, either select Create ISO to put all the ISO images into one or Create USB to write ISO on specified USB drive. For power users, it offers portable processor emulator- QEMU that lets you easily Boot USB on QEMU from respective tab. Just drag and drop ISO over pre-defined area, select the drive and click Boot.


With XBoot up and running, you wont need to search for applications packed into ISO files over the web, it offers a list of famous websites which can be directly accessed. As of now, some Windows and Linux based developers’ websites are listed along with some anti-viruses suites. According to developer, the list will be furnished upon users requests.

The application worked flawlessly on Windows 7 x64 system. It supports Windows XP/Vista/7, and requires Net Framework 4.0.

Create Multiboot Windows And Linux USB Drive With WinSetupFromUSB

There are many tools available out there which allows user to create bootable USB drives, but what if you need to create a multiboot USB drive which can keep more than one bootable installation packages, lets say,  Windows XP, Windows Vista, Ubuntu and Windows 7?

WinSetupFromUSB can create a multiboot setup, allowing user to keep a range of bootable ISO files on single drive.
The application comes with support for OS including,  Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows 2003 Server, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Parted Magic, and Ubuntu,G4D.
Just specify the OS installation directory to create multiboot USB drive with a single click.

Usage is simple and self-explanatory. It’s recommended to insert a formatted drive, however, Bootice and RMPrep options are available to format data. Now in Add to USB disk section, hover the mouse pointer over the OS checkbox to read the description of required files for creating ISO images.

After understanding the pre-reqs, select the checkboxes and specify the location of folder where OS setup files are residing. Once it detects correct setup with all required files, Go button at the bottom will become active. Click this button to start the process. It is worth noting here that it takes far more time than creating a single bootable USB drive, so have patience.

wind 3

As of now, QEMU test is in experimental stages, therefore, you need not to go for inspection. Enabling Advanced options checkbox will show settings related with creating bootable USB drive.

advance 2

Since it is in beta testing phase, you might run on some errors while creating a multibootable USB. It works on all versions of Windows.

How To Increase Your Laptop’s Battery Life

With the rise in laptop sales it is essential for laptop buyers to make sure they use their laptop batteries to the fullest and also make sure they can achieve the highest performance with the available battery.

Generally most laptops claim to have 4-6 hours of battery life but in real it comes to 50% of the promised backup time because of many factors like heavy laptop usage while on battery backup, running USB Based gadgets, CD/DVD ROMs etc.

You also need to make sure about some battery life saving tips because the laptop batteries generally have a life of around 1000 recharge cycles.

Here is a list of some essential tips which can almost double your laptop battery life.

Screen brightness

Almost all laptops come with the ability to dim the screen brightness. Some even come with ways to modify CPU and cooling performance. The display system takes 50% of your available battery and lower brightness would ensure you more battery life.


Power Cord

Recharge your laptop  using the power cord/adapter provided by the laptop dealer and don’t use any other local cord because they can decrease the life of your battery.

Remove Your Batteries When Not In Use

If you don’t use your laptop for a continuous period its recommended to remove your batteries completely from the laptop and add it back when you plan to use it. This is because laptop batteries have a limited lifetime and its generally 1000 charge cycles after which they stop offering complete backups. Even if it is not in use, the battery still drains, so you should completely remove it and store in a cool place and at a 40% charge rather than 100% charge.

Background Processes

When you are running your laptop on batteries, avoid heavy multitasking, because processor and ram will then need more power thus making your battery drain further.


Wi-Fi should be turned off when not in use because it drains your laptop battery in search of signals and wireless router. You can use the hardware switch available on the laptop to disable your wifi or disable it from the Network Connections option available under your Control Panel.
WiFi Icon

Disable Aero Glass

Disable Aero Glass Feature which comes preinstalled in Windows Vista. You need to right click on your Desktop > Preferances > View Colour > Appearance > Classic Appearance and Windows Basic graphical interface > Ok , this way you can get the classic appearance which has less resource using features and helps you use less battery power.


Heat Control

Your laptop operates more efficiently when it’s cooler.  Clean out your air vents with a cloth or keyboard cleaner.

Optimize Power Options

Go to ‘Power Options’ in your windows Control Panel and set it up so that power usage is optimized (Select the ‘max battery’ for maximum effect).


No Multitasking

Do one thing at a time when you’re on battery.  Rather than working on a spreadsheet, letting your email client run in the background and listening to your latest set of MP3’s, set your mind to one thing only. It is important to note that it is fine running an idle program at the background but if the program is constantly doing some work like downloading or extracting a Zip  file, this is when the battery drains out.

External Drives

USB devices (including your mouse)  drain down your laptop battery.  Remove or shut them down when not in use.  It goes without saying that charging other devices (like your iPod) with your laptop when on battery, is a like putting a wood on fire.

Battery Recharge

Do not leave a charged battery dormant for long periods of time.  Once charged, you should at least use the battery once every two to three weeks(2 weeks is recommended). Also, do not let a Li-On battery completely discharge.

Hibernate Not Standby

Although placing a laptop in standby mode saves some power and you can instantly resume where you left off, it doesn’t save anywhere as much power as the hibernate function does. 
Hibernating a PC will actually save your PC’s state as it is, and completely shut itself down. Settings up Automatic Hibernate feature to make sure the laptop automatically saves all your running documents and applications, and hibernates when you are not using the laptop for a given amount of time is very important.


Clean Battery

Clean your battery’s metal contacts every couple of months with a cloth moistened with rubbing alcohol.  This keeps the transfer of power from your battery more efficient.

Install Vista Battery Saver

Vista Battery Saver is a very useful app that I’ve been using for the last couple of days to improve the battery life of my laptop running Windows Vista. I wouldn’t say that it has improved my battery life by the claimed 70%, but it has delivered significantly better battery performance. It also automatically switches back to a different power plan as soon as you plug your laptop back in, so that you can access all those fancy Vista features again.


I hope you will be able to save your battery life using these steps, if we have missed anything important, do let us know with your comments.

How To Share Internet Connection With Another Computer Using Windows 7/Vista

Having two computers at your home, you may have only one internet connection which you want to share between two computers.

Now consider there are two computers. Computer A has Windows Vista while computer B has Windows XP. Computer A is connected to internet via cable (so this will be connected through LAN card). Now to connect to Computer B, you will need another LAN card (to connect to more than one computer, you will need a wired hub).

First, Let us connect two computers in LAN

Follow these steps to connect two computers in LAN.

Step 1: In Windows 7/Vista, you should enable Sharing and Discovery before doing that. You can do this by going to Control Panel > Network and Sharing Centre. Under the section Sharing and Discovery, enable Network Discovery, file sharing, public folder sharing and others if you want to. (The screen short below gives you idea). Here first network shows connection to internet and second one the local connection with another computer.

Step 2: If your LAN card that is connecting to another computer is installed, it will be shown at Control Panel > Network Connections.

Step 3: Right click the Local Area Connection and click Properties.

Step 4: Under the tab ‘Networking’, click the properties internet protocol version 4(TCP/IPv4).

Step 5: Click the radio button to ‘use the following IP’ and give an IP address (Forexample: IP address: and Subnet Mask: Do not give any other information, Click OK and close.
Step 6: In Computer B, make sure you enable the LAN card which is used to connect to computer A. Here you need not give any IP information as Computer A will assign an IP address dynamically. If it is not working, make sure there are no IP assigned and change the properties to ‘obtain an IP address automatically’.
Step 7: Test the connection by pinging (You can do this by typing ping or whichever is Computer ‘A’s IP in the command prompt).

Now let us share the internet connection of Computer A with Computer B

Right click the LAN card which is connected to the internet under Control Panel > Network Connections and click the Sharing tab and click both options to connect internet (Remember: Unless there is another enabled LAN setting you will not be able to see the shared tab under properties). Click OK and close. This option is given by Windows known as ICS (Internet Connection Sharing).

That is it, now you can use internet in both computers A and B.

Connect Two Laptops Using WiFi

This is step by step tutorial on how you can connect two laptops using WiFi (or two desktop computers with WiFi devices). This type of network is known as peer to peer network and is useful for file sharing and using same internet connection on both systems. So as told earlier you should have two laptops with WiFi or desktops with WiFi devices to make this connection.

Connecting Two Computers Using WiFi

Let’s name both laptops as PC1 and PC2. Now we need to set names and workgroups of both computers (Remember both computers will have same workgroups). To set the name and workgroup of both computers right click on My Computer and select Properties. Click the tab which says Computer Name and change names of computers as you like (Here we will set computer names PC1 and PC2) and also change the Workgroup option as you like (but this Workgroup should be same for both computers).

Now you need to make “Wireless Network Connection” in PC1. Right click on Wireless Network icon for this and click on option “View Available Wireless Network”.

Now click on option “Change Advance Settings”.
