How to by-pass internet download manager?

When you install Internet Download Manager, it takes over all your download jobs by default. But there are cases when you want to override the internet download manager settings and resort to the normal download offered by your browser, especially when you find yourself behind proxies or if your Download Manager expires.

Here is another sticky note from your techie guy on how to by-pass the "Internet Download Manager":

1. Access the website that contains the download link using your browser.
2. Press and hold the "Alt" button on your PC and then click the download link.
3. Your download should start normally in the browser.
Remember: Press and hold "Alt" + Click the download link
Have fun.

Best default disk partitioning for Linux Systems - Small Sticky Note

If you are not familiar with partitioning a hard disk and preparing it for a Linux system installation, here is a starting point or what i would call the best default disk partitioning for people who don't have so much experience with Linux systems. i too, normally forgets the right partitions to use so this serves as a small sticky note to remind me the next time am up to this task.

Depending on your disk space (Mine was 80Gb):

/boot     Give the boot partition 1Gb
swap     Give the swap partition 1Gb
/             Give the root partition "the reminder of the hard disk space"

And you are good to go.
