This is trick to get email address of any profile on orkut!As you may be knowing already that you can go to “friends” page in your orkut account and see all your friends primary email addresses! This seems applicable to only friend who has already joined your friends network! But wait, you can see the email id of any profile on orkut, even if the concern person chooses to hide his/her email address!
Here are steps…
Just add the target person as a friend (by going to his profile).
Don’t wait for the approval. Go to your “friends” page immediately.
Click on “Open friend requests” on the top-left corner.
Find the name of the person whom you just added.
Click on “EDIT” at the right side of that person’s profile.
Recently I have seen lots of people talking about orkutting from mobile devices!Before going ahead here is an excerpt from Orkut Help page!
Why can’t I access orkut from my mobile device?
We’re sorry to hear about any difficulty you’ve experienced accessing orkut.com. Currently, orkut.com isn’t compatible with mobile devices. To access your orkut profile, please try logging in using your computer’s web browser.
So today I’m posting about how to use orkut from mobile devices! Before going ahead lemme tel u few things about my environment! I have Nokia N-70 with opera 8.62 installed!
With these assumptions lets start the ride!
Login Issue! (updated: 2007, August 30)
You can use original address http://orkut.com from opera MINI nut the page have some problems in OPERA MOBILE. But don’t worry as you can use following address to log into orkut! Its a very long address so better bookmark it with name like Orkut Login! In fact you can use the following address from PC for fast login on orkut!
Also you can use o.devilsworkshop.org which is configured to redirect you to the above link only!
Clicking on button does not work!
As of now u log into orkut but experiencing problem while clicking on buttons! The most common problem I have seen button like submit, delete, yes, no, accept, reject does not work!
Opera solution (For Nokia and Windows based Mobiles Only)
This great solution is found by one of my Doctor friend Rahul Talele (Shame on us engineers.
Best thing about this it works for all buttons without any coding effort!!!(Really great na)!!!
Now after logging into orkut using opera,
Go to Options >> Navigation >> Find in page
Put caption of button means ‘submit’ , delete’, yes’, no’, etc in text to be found.
The moment text on button starts highlighting exit from Find wizard pressing roght-selection key (which have Stop option).
Now clicking on that button works!
Extra tip: Assign a shortcut key to Find in Page option by going to Option >> Settings
Submitting Scrap! (updated 2007, August 30)
First thing If u want to scrap someone u hv to go into his/her scrapbook! (The code following are not for orkut’s new reply feature!)
After opening intended scrapbook, write scrap with optional formatting the way u usually write!
In next step, without leaving that page(or tab if u r using opera with tab browsing) go to this address:
This will delete first scrap from ur scrapbook. For 2nd scrap replace b6² by b9² , for 3rd scrap replace b6² by b12² ans so on
Same code can be used to delete scraps from others scrapbook (of course scraps dent by you).
In this case replace b6² by b3² (for 1st delete button), b4² (for 2nd) and so on
New Friend: Accept To accept new friend request which is shown on ur orkut home page! Note, this will work for first request if u have too many! u can increment b0² by 2 for next request and so on if u hv multiple requests and directly want to accept other than first request!
New Friend: Decline Works in the opposite way of new friend accept Executing this wil decline first request..
increment b1² in the script by 2 for 2nd request and so on
Friend: Confirm yes: You will need to confirm whenever you are accepting a new friend request or sending a new friend request to someone
Gwigle is an online puzzle game that actually teaches you Google search tricks as you play. Each screen shows a few search results along with the search string at the top. One word is replaced with question marks; it’s your job to fill it in. It’s hands-on education that feels more like you’re playing a game than learning useful knowledge.
Glancing at the search results gives you clues as to what the mystery search term is. If you’re stuck, you can always hit up Google for some clues. Simply copy some of the text from Gwigle and search away.
Some of the puzzles are a little tricky and it can be difficult to find the answers, even with thorough Google research. Most of them are fairly easy, however, and won’t take you too long to complete. You can always bookmark the puzzle you’re on and come back to it later.
Gwigle is a great puzzle game for anyone, not just power Googlers-to-be. Give it a try and see if you accidentally learn something useful. U can always mail Wang as he answered to my queries fast beyond my imagination!
The game contains 16 + 7 levels (at least when I played)!
This is latest GreaseMonkey Script for Orkut users n biggest also!
When u install this u will receive notification
when someone scraps u!
when any of your friend comes online!
Also u can choose to be notified in three way-
small pop-up balloon in right-bottom corner as shown in above screen-shot. (this can not be turned off)
a sound alert!
a funny alert will Shake ur screen!
Wats good about balloon notification is that it shows scraps content when somebody scraps u! It also shows name n pic of friend who is coming online!
Another Layout option is there for changing color of balloon notification n configuration panel!
All this can be configurable, which is really rare in GreaseMonkey Scripts! It adds three more links besides “Home | Friends | Message | …. ” links on top of every orkut page! One is for opening ur scrapbook and another is for configuration wizard to change the behavior of this script!
Again this is for firefox & GreaseMonkey Only! So…
Important Update:This script stopped working since 10th December 2006. You may subscribe to my RSS feed or email alert to receive automatic updates regarding this and other hacks in future!
Here comes Orkut Fan Flooder Script! This is for those orkuttian who wants to increase their Fan Count! As per my commitment to Open source this is also for Firefox. This is actually another GreaseMonkey Script so install firefox and GreaseMonkey if you don’t have them!
Before Going Ahead: Please note that on orkut, you can not add yourself to your friend-list! So that mean you can not be your fan! So in order to increase your fan count you have to either create another profile so you can increase your fan count yourself! OR just ask your friend to do that favor for you 🙂
Listing in this post some orkut hacks, tricks which you can use to be kool orkuttian! ALT+0173 Tricks 1. Ever seen someone without First name and/or Last Name! If yes, you might have tried to do the sane but while editing your profile came 2 know that first name n last name can not be left blank! So how did others did that?
While editing name just put ALT+0173 i.e. press ALT & while it is pressed type 0173 in any field u want to left blank! You wont see any output! (In Opera u may see ‘-‘ character but surely nothing will be displayed in Firefox n IE)
2. You can also use this special character if you want to escape orkut’s default formatting which is applied to your text while posting on communities and writing scrap!
e.g. [rÂed]Hi[/Âred] wont look Hi
if u use [r(ALT+0173)ed]Hi[/r(ALT+0173)ed]!
Just insert ALT+0173 anywhere!
U can also insert in Url’s to escape image verification while posting links but they wont be clickable 🙁
3. You can just write ALT+0173 while posting on communities n scrapbook to post blank scrap n posts!
This is for all bloggers from all domains having technorati account!
One problem old blogger felt that there was no way to categorize post according to tag! Mostly after each post we used to add technorati tags! Then came blogger in beta with this option right into blogger itself! Still instead of tagging all the posts again, you can use technorati API’s to take care of this! (For live example scroll down to see "TOP 10 TAGS" in this blogs sidebar itself!)
Don’t worry if you don’t know how to use technorati API’s (Even I don’t know 😉 ! Vijay Bhaskar already done some great work regarding this! So just listing here what you need to do!
2. Now Replace Following Fields:
<Your Technorati Username>
<Your Blog URL>
<Number of Tags>
After Modifying your code will look like…
Just Paste modified code into your blog! That’s it! Notes:
I have switched already to blogger in beta! Still I like technorati tags over blogger’s label because when somebody clicks on technorati tags, it shows partial content of all the post tagged under that particular tag, while blogger shows full posts! I feel technorati’s way is better as some of tags have large no. of posts tagged under them which make loading of those pages time-consuming!
