Thank you for stopping by my blog. This is my first dip into the blogging trench, started out of my curiosity to know what actually is a blog. I try to put here my readings from various sources; books, blogs, sites. I also grab stuff from here & there and try to showcase it in my own style here. If you'd like my scribblings, please subscribe to my full text RSS feeds.

Currently I am experimenting a few new features on my blog, like Peekaboo and Post Summary; the reason for the slight distortion you see. I am hoping to frame up these soon, please bear with me!

If you ever wished you run multiple instances of your favourite IMs' on the same machine, this is the perfect solution. No big hacks required nor you ought to be a geek. Simple but effective tricks listed below can solve this maze.

Advantages of such a hack? I leave it to your imagination!

Google Talk

1. Point to the application launch icon (either in your programs list or the shortcut on your desktop)
2. Right click to get the Google Talk Properties pop up window
3. Replace contents of the target text box with "c:\program files\google\google talk\googletalk.exe" /nomutex (include the quotations and spaces as well)
4. Click OK and you're done

Now you can launch multiple instances of the GTalk messenger.

Yahoo Messenger

1. In the RUN command box, type in regedit and hit Enter to open the registry editor
2. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Yahoo > Pager > Test
3. On the right pane, right-click and choose New > Dword value
4. Rename it as Plural.
5. Double click on it and change the Base to Decimal
6. Type 1 in the value text box. Exit the registry and you're done

Now you can launch multiple instances of the Yahoo messenger.
