Rapidshare Premium Account in Malaysia

Rapidshare is one of the major file hosting provider currently. Different types of files can be found here. Ranging from movies, songs, programs, documents, ebook etc. They do provide free access to the files but at a much lower speed and limited download slots. And most of the time, the slots are usually used up.

SO, if you are a heavy downloader, you may consider getting a premium account on Rapidshare.

How do you get it?

1) Getting an account

There are number of resellers in Malaysia that provides premium accounts. One good thing is, you can use maybank2u to purchase from them.
At the time of this posting, the cost of a premium account :

30Days = RM 36.50
90Days = RM 88.50
180Days = RM 159.50
1 Year = RM 283.50

I have their service personally twice and they delivered the account details within 24hours on both occasion. Pretty reliable.

2) So, you have a premium account. What’s next?

There are few sites where you can search for files hosted on rapidshare. Such as rapidshare1 [] and rapid2me []. But normally, I will use different sites to get what I’m looking for. Go ahead and google for it.

3) How do I download?

I prefer to use IDM [ Internet Download Manager -] to download from any sites. With this, you can pause or resume downloads at anytime. Get the rapidshare link from the sites and download it with IDM.

4) But the download speed is still slow?

Sometimes, the download speed can be slow due to various reasons that I don't wish to talk here. :) Anyway, one way to fix this is, convert your url into IP based. You can use this free service provided by RS2IP []. This website basically converts your rapidshare urls into ip. Use the ip url instead and you can see better download speed.

5) Anything else?

There are lots of forum out there that shares rapidshare files among it’s member. Ask around or google for it. One good example is ForumW [].

Happy Downloading!! :)

How to write in Tamil on Facebook

Sometimes, I do feel like write in tamil on facebook. Being from a tamil education background, I enjoy do that and I feel we all should be since number of people who can write and read Tamil language are pretty much low nowadays.
Anyway, if you feel like want to write in Tamil [ Or any other major languages from Indian Continental ], may try this.
There is this free online editor that can help us to do this. Check out 

*** Edited - The website is no longer active. But you may use

From the website itself,
Quillpad is a free online Indian language typing tool. You can type in Hindi, Gujarati, Punjabi, Marathi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam, Bengali and Nepali. For example, when you type 'neenga eppadi irukkinga' in Tamil, Quillpad will convert it directly into Tamil script. If you write a word like 'nalan', first n should become 'ந' and the second n should become 'ன'. Quillpad will intelligently do that for you. No need to use shift keys or to memorize any key mappings. So 'ராத்திரி' can be written by typing 'rathri', 'raathiri' or 'ratri'. Quillpad can also predict if multiple words are possible for your input. You can click on the word to select from those options. In addition Quillpad allows you to type English words freely in between Tamil words. It intelligently transliterates them into Tamil.
It takes some practise before you get used to it. Give it a try and say "வணக்கம்" on your next Facebook post. :)
