DC++ and Linux

DC++ is a popular P2P client. Unfortunately, DC++ client for Linux has many bugs (Russian locale doesn't support for searching and etc.), limits and so not convenient as DC++ for Windows. To run DC++ (windows version) you should install WINE then install DC++ (an install package you can download from DC++ download page).

If you run DC++ through WINE and have found file then try to download it DC++ will failed. For avoiding this behavior you must turn off "Show progress bars for transfers" option in the Settings -> Advanced. Now you can use this client with pleasure.

Good luck!

Lingvo.Yandex search engine

On the site you can add a search engine for Firefox, IE, Opera. After adding it you can search describing of words via a search box in your favorite browser. But this engine describes through different dictionaries. To translate english / a russian word you should select a option in the right navbar (в словарях ABBYY Lingvo). I think this way is an inconvenient and I have created an opensearch configuratuon for this service. Now I can input an english or a russian word in a search box of Firefox (IE, Opera) and then get a translation of it immediately. If you want add this service you should go to this url and add "Lingvo Yandex" engine in the search box.

Then you can search a translation of english/russian box via a search engine.

p.s. For examine a config file you can download it from this url if you want to change a translation language.

Good luck!!!
