How to Change or Customize Windows 7 Boot Screen Using Windows 7 Boot Updater

By:Prayag Nao

Now the wait is over. Since when Microsoft released Windows 7, no one was able to change the boot screen as it requires lots of files and certificates customization.

But now Jeff Bush @ "Coder for life" website has developed an excellent tool which can customize Windows 7 boot screen.

"Windows 7 Boot Updater" is a program that makes it easy to update the Windows 7 boot animation and text. It is written in C++/CLI and requires Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 and the Microsoft WIM library.

Features List:
  • Modifies the boot animation
  • Modifies the boot text "Starting Windows" and "Microsoft Corporation"
  • Will compile the animation from 105 BMP, PNG, GIF, or TIFF images
  • Does not require any other applications (like ImageX)
  • Designed to be idiot-proof by having numerous checks
  • Automatically backs up the modified files
  • Works for all versions of Windows 7: any language, any edition, 32-bit or 64-bit
  • Works even if your setup has the hidden "System Reserved" partition
The software is available for both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.

HOW TO USE:

You can change both boot screen and resume screen using this utility.

1. Download and run the program's exe file.

2. You can change the text messages, remove them completely, change their color. You can also replace animation and background image.

3. If you want to change the animation you will have to make an animation! The animation is:
  • 105 frames (if there are less frames the last frame will be repeated as necessary)
  • Each frame is 200x200px (resized if necessary)
  • 15 frames / sec
  • First 4 seconds play once then the last 3 seconds play in a loop
The program loads a folder containing all the frames as PNGs, GIFs, BMPs, TIFs, or JPEGs images. The files will be played in alphabetical order. If you are numbering them, use the same number of digits for all numbers (e.g. 001, 002, ..., 103, 105). For 'historical' reasons, the animation can also be a folder containing a single BMP named "activity.bmp" that is 200x21000px.
 
4.you don't want make animation you can download from internet.

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.
