Customize the Manufacturer Support Info in Windows 7 or Vista.!!

By:Prayag Nao


If you have a computer with pre-installed Windows 7 or Vista, most likely you’ll notice the manufacturer’s support information when you look in the system properties window. If you’d like to customize this information or use a picture of your own in this space, you can do so easily.

Right-click on Computer and choose Properties.
Look my changed properties.



To edit the information in this screen, you’ll need to open up your registry editor and navigate down to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OEMInformation

Note: If this key does not exist, you can download the following registry file, which you will want to edit before double-clicking to add into the registry.


You can modify the following fields and put any values you’d like into them, with the exception of the Logo key, which you probably shouldn’t change.
  • Manufacturer
  • SupportHours
  • SupportPhone
  • SupportURL
  • Logo
The last important step is to either create or modify a bitmap file stored at the location specified in the Logo key, usually set to....

C:\Windows\System32\oemlogo.bmp

For best results, you’ll want to use a small logo file, preferably somewhere around 100×100 height/width. Also note that copying the file to that folder will require administrative permissions.

HOW INTERNAL EXPANDING BRAKE WORKS

By:Prayag nao


An internal expanding brake consists of two shoes S1 and S2. The outer surface of the shoes are lined with some friction material (usually with Ferodo) to increase the coefficient of friction and to prevent wearing away of the metal. Each shoe is pivoted at one end about a fixed fulcrum O1and O2 and made to contact a cam at the other end. When the cam rotates, the shoes are pushed outwards against the rim of the drum. The friction between the shoes and the drum produces the braking torque and hence reduces the speed of the drum. The shoes are normally held in
off position by a spring . The drum encloses the entire mechanism to keep out dust and moisture. This type of brake is commonly used in motor cars and light trucks.



We shall now consider the forces acting on such a brake, when the drum rotates in the anticlockwise direction. It may be noted that for the anticlockwise direction, the left hand shoe is known as leading or primary shoe while the right hand sho…

Awesome iris mechanism

By:Prayag nao



An iris is a mechanism that is used as a compact solution to close and open holes. It is made up of usually a series of metal plates that can fold in on each other or expand out. Iris mechanisms are commonly found in optical shutters (diaphragms). Irises are sometimes used in science fiction as doors.
