Gateway Netbook LT2802u tinkering

This Gateway Netbook LT2802u is a very compact machine. You need to take it apart in order to even install RAM. So I opened it up for fun and put it back.

In order to open the Gateway netbook there are many guides. First read the instructions on

from (

then see the following video

and then see the tips at

The last link gives crucial tips on how not to scratch your laptop. So use a thin laminated card or a Safeway card (not your credit card) instead of a screwdriver. If you are still using a thin flat screwdriver then cover its tip with some thin paper like a receipt. But do not try to remove those thin T-shaped screws which hold the keyboard in place and visible from the battery compartment. It is unnecessary and you would probably lose those thin clips.

  • Instead, just slide the card over the top thin gap of the keyboard couple of times so that you can hear the hinges click open and then press the card in and pry the keyboard up as shown in the video. It would not be easy the first time. 
  • After the first 5 hinges are unhinged at the top gap then slide a card below the keyboard top and slide it across its left and right to click open the other hinges at the sides.
  • Now go ahead and take out the keyboard by opening the cute latch that holds its cable in place. Then unscrew the 6 DOOR screws (4 at top and 2 at bottom) and push at the DOOR latch to open a corner of the back panel. Again slide the cards to unhinge the latches around the back lid with clicks.

  • Once all work is done close the back lid by inserting the top part first into the grooves then latching it down from all sides. You will hear clicking sounds. 
  • Put in the DOOR screws. 
  • Plug in the keyboard cable back and close the latch. Make sure the keyboard cable is not misaligned. Put the keyboard back flat onto the board and click it in place. 
  • Put in the battery. 
  • Make sure the netbook turns on and the keyboard is working.

Fastest way to send multiple drafts from gmail

People claim that the fastest way to send multiple email drafts is to use Gmail IMAP with email client like Outlook or Evolution or Thunderbird. But I have found this is not true. Because Thunderbird and Evolution etc. email clients treats the drafts as emails still to be edited. So it is not just simple select all and hit send. Each email draft has to be opened and sent separately. That is a lot of clicks and mouse movements, wasting precious time and energy. I have a better solution which involves minimum keystrokes and mouse usage. Efficiency booster technique for sending emails.
If someone is feeling adventurous and want to try it from the Gmail interface itself, here's how to do it in the fastest possible manner. It involves using the mouse once. Select the first draft. Gmail would open a new email box and put the cursor inside the box to write.Press TAB once to go the Send button.Press ENTER to send. Now Gmail sends it and the box is gone but the highlight goes to the last li…

How to join audio tracks smoothly in Audacity

Audio tracks can be mixed easily in full fledged video editors like kdenlive or Adobe Premiere but for mixing or joining audio they would not provide the amount of control that audio editors like Audacity provide. The example I am going to show today would demonstrate the range of tools in Audacity that allows us to control the waveform and to mold it to our desire.

Today I am going to take a small track like a small 1 min. clip of storm sound and make a long continuous sounding storm audio clip from it.

STEP 1 : Open file
Open the clip in Audacity.

STEP 2 : Removing unwanted audio portion
There is always unwanted sections of the audio that we have to discard. Select the portion of background noise or unwanted audio.

Press DELETE key.

STEP 3 : Duplicating the track
Now we make a copy of the entire waveform and paste it at the end of the track.

Select the SELECT tool (the one which looks like I). Then select the whole waveform and prss Ctrl+c. Now click approximately at the end of the…
