Clash of Clans Unlimited Gems

Hi Co Palyers,

Before anything else this is NOT a cheat.

I have been searching for way to have an Clash of Clans Unlimited Gems. Yes there is a way but it is not on the real Clash of Clans.

coc

To see is to believe. That is most of us says. You can see that there is my name at the upper left corner of the screen. So how can that happen. Simply connect to a server using the guide below and please note that all saved data might disappear but rest assured you will still have the number of Golds and Gems during start.

So here are the steps, just follow it very carefully:

ANDROID Users (As of now for Rooted Device only)

  1. Back-up your existing Clash of Clans Game to your Google Account(I know that most of you should know this)
  2. Make sure your device is rooted, if not you may try this.
  3. Install Host Editor on your Android device
  4. Open the Host Editor and add the following
    1. host
  5. After adding that to your host open up your Clash of Clans and to See is to Believe.

iOS Users

  1. Install iFile
  2. Navigate and Open /etc/hosts
  3. Add New values containing the same as the provided on android.
  4. After adding that to your host open up your Clash of Clans and to See is to Believe.

 

Notes:

  • Gem Purchases will go to the original Clash of Clans and not saved. Please don’t purchase any gems as you will be billed by the ORIGINAL Clash of Clans.
  • You’ll have on login
    • 10,000,000 gold
    • 100,000,000 elixer
    • 10,000,000 gems
    • 300,000 dark elixer(if applicable)
  • Just Removed the added Host to go back to the original Clash of Clans.
  • Things that are not yet working:
    • Clans and Clan War
    • Player vs Player
    • Player vs Environment
    • Google+, Facebook, and Link
  • All rights remain to their corresponding owners.
  • You are doing this on your own will.
  • Again This is NOT a cheat.

God Bless!

MSSQL – Execution Plan Caching and Recompiling

Hi,

Have you every experience that you have a stored procedure(SP) that have plenty of parameters that when 1 set of parameter is executed for the very first time the said SPwas created, its fast. Then after you have a new set of parameter passed to the same SP you’ll end up a long execution process?

Then that is because of a so called Execution Plan Caching that MSSQL is doing on your query. In an overview MSSQL check if there is an existing execution plan for the SP. If there is none, it will create an optimized execution plan, compile, and then cache it on memory. So when the same SP is executed with the same number of parameter it will be reused.

So in cases that you have the same number of parameter every time you use the said stored procedure and you know that you have a logic that will change the query result then this optimization may not be on our side.

When does this caching is cleared? It is only cleared when either there are no memory allocation for MSSQL or you force MSSQL to recompile the SP.

How to Recompile your specific SP? Just add OPTION (RECOMPILE) at the end of your query, before the END statement, and you are ready to go. In some cases you may want to force all cache to be removed, you need to use another statement to do that and that is DBCC FREEPROCCACHE.

That’s it. Hope it helped you as it helped me on my project.

God Bless!
Thanks,
Thomie

MSSQL – Drop all SP and Table on a Database

Execute this with Precaution

USE YourDataBaseName
declare @procName varchar(500)
declare cur cursor
for select [name] from sys.objects where type = ‘p’
open cur
fetch next from cur into @procName
while @@fetch_status = 0
begin
exec(‘drop procedure [‘ + @procName+’]’)
fetch next from cur into @procName
end
close cur
deallocate cur
EXEC sp_MSforeachtable @command1 = “DROP TABLE [?]”

 

 

MSSQL – Count Number of Records on Each Table

Here is the script to count all the number of records on each table on a MSSQL Server:

 

SELECT sc.name +’.’+ ta.name TableName
,SUM(pa.rows) RowCnt
FROM sys.tables ta
INNER JOIN sys.partitions pa
ON pa.OBJECT_ID = ta.OBJECT_ID
INNER JOIN sys.schemas sc
ON ta.schema_id = sc.schema_id
WHERE ta.is_ms_shipped = 0 AND pa.index_id IN (1,0)
GROUP BY sc.name,ta.name
ORDER BY SUM(pa.rows) DESC

Hope it helps.

God Bless!
Thanks,
Thomie

TCP and C# Connecting via Lan

Have you ever thought that you want to connect to create an application that can talk via LAN? Then TCP is one of the mode that you can choose one. Here are the codes from MSDN that can help you:

TCPListen – This is used when you want to create a server like application.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Net;
using System.Net.Sockets;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;

namespace TCPListen
{
class Program
{
static void Main(string[] args)
{
TcpListener server = null;
try
{
// Set the TcpListener on port 13000.
Int32 port = 13000;
IPAddress localAddr = IPAddress.Parse("127.0.0.1");

// TcpListener server = new TcpListener(port);
server = new TcpListener(localAddr, port);

// Start listening for client requests.
server.Start();

// Buffer for reading data
Byte[] bytes = new Byte[256];
String data = null;

// Enter the listening loop.
while (true)
{
Console.Write("Waiting for a connection... ");

// Perform a blocking call to accept requests.
// You could also user server.AcceptSocket() here.
TcpClient client = server.AcceptTcpClient();
Console.WriteLine("Connected!");

data = null;

// Get a stream object for reading and writing
NetworkStream stream = client.GetStream();

int i;

// Loop to receive all the data sent by the client.
while ((i = stream.Read(bytes, 0, bytes.Length)) != 0)
{
// Translate data bytes to a ASCII string.
data = System.Text.Encoding.ASCII.GetString(bytes, 0, i);
Console.WriteLine("Received: {0}", data);

// Process the data sent by the client.
data = data.ToUpper();

byte[] msg = System.Text.Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(data);

// Send back a response.
stream.Write(msg, 0, msg.Length);
Console.WriteLine("Sent: {0}", data);
}

// Shutdown and end connection
client.Close();
}
}
catch (SocketException e)
{
Console.WriteLine("SocketException: {0}", e);
}
finally
{
// Stop listening for new clients.
server.Stop();
}

Console.WriteLine("\nHit enter to continue...");
Console.Read();
}
}
}

TCPClient – As the name suggest it will be used to create the client that will connect to our server.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Net;
using System.Net.Sockets;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;

namespace TCPListen
{
class Program
{
static void Main(string[] args)
{
TcpListener server = null;
try
{
// Set the TcpListener on port 13000.
Int32 port = 13000;
IPAddress localAddr = IPAddress.Parse("127.0.0.1");

// TcpListener server = new TcpListener(port);
server = new TcpListener(localAddr, port);

// Start listening for client requests.
server.Start();

// Buffer for reading data
Byte[] bytes = new Byte[256];
String data = null;

// Enter the listening loop.
while (true)
{
Console.Write("Waiting for a connection... ");

// Perform a blocking call to accept requests.
// You could also user server.AcceptSocket() here.
TcpClient client = server.AcceptTcpClient();
Console.WriteLine("Connected!");

data = null;

// Get a stream object for reading and writing
NetworkStream stream = client.GetStream();

int i;

// Loop to receive all the data sent by the client.
while ((i = stream.Read(bytes, 0, bytes.Length)) != 0)
{
// Translate data bytes to a ASCII string.
data = System.Text.Encoding.ASCII.GetString(bytes, 0, i);
Console.WriteLine("Received: {0}", data);

// Process the data sent by the client.
data = data.ToUpper();

byte[] msg = System.Text.Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(data);

// Send back a response.
stream.Write(msg, 0, msg.Length);
Console.WriteLine("Sent: {0}", data);
}

// Shutdown and end connection
client.Close();
}
}
catch (SocketException e)
{
Console.WriteLine("SocketException: {0}", e);
}
finally
{
// Stop listening for new clients.
server.Stop();
}

Console.WriteLine("\nHit enter to continue...");
Console.Read();
}
}
}

God Bless!

Auto SMS Sender, finally found the best for me.

I have been searching for a perfect Auto SMS Sending application that will fit my very need.

Basic Needs

  • Send SMS Regularly
  • Sent Notification
  • Wide Selection of Intervals
  • Auto Response

Added Features

  • Calendar Notification
  • Backup of Created Scheduled SMS and even SMS in localdisk and Dropbox
  • Auto Forward

 

Therefore, if your looking for such app I will be recommending Auto SMS Sender by DRC InfoTech. Its free but with adds. The adds may annoy some of you but thinking of the features that it offers, I’ll say that its worthit.

What would they call it if your using ASP?

In PHP they are calling coders differently:

Baker when they are using CakePHP. An

How about in ASP .Net? What would they call people who are using WebForms, MVC, or Other MS Products? Would they call MVCaretakers  if your using MVC because your taking carefully all the coding so that it is coded separately so that it can be easily tested via Unit Test?

How about you? What would they call it?
