How to get unbanned from punkbuster GUID/World/Hardware Ban


Hey folks, back with new article about some thing that I was bugged from yesterday.

Punk buster is the program which is used to detect cheaters while playing multiplayer games like AA, COD4 & COD5.

I got a Heart Attack when I did something so called cheating unintentionally when I used some hacked profile ( Don’t ask me what I was doing 😛 )

So the show just started and I started getting kicked off the servers with PunkBuster aka PB. It put me in the ban list.In hardware ban they register your MAC address, HDD serial number and a number of stuff. It surely pisses you off when you aren’t doing anything.

I just browsed net! Found some noob ways which didn’t work! So I tried something on my own.

Here is what I did:

  1. Change your HDD port like from RAID 0 to RAID 1. It mainly does nothing more but we will do it!
  2. Changing your MAC Address is useful. You may use free ware utilities like MAD MAC’s Sniffer which is easily available to change the MAC of the adapter and the restart.
  3. Using your old profile and your old key is not a thing I would do! Open COD Multiplayer! Delete your old profile. Make a new one with a multiplayer name (You may be banned from some servers). After that use a new key(Don’t let me say the ‘P’ word here) or just buy a new copy.
  4. You must be done! If not try getting a new Hard Disk. (Not Joking)

Also you can leave some unban request on www.pbbans.com, but mostly they won’t help.

Hope it helped.


How to Start a Blog on Blogspot/Blogger for Free


My first article on chaaps!!! 🙂

When someone has a blog or a website, she/he often confronts this question by others, “how do you ever create it”? Well, this article is for all those who want to start blogging/writing but are new to the blogging world.

To start writing and posting articles on the Internet you need a platform where you can write and, where the rest of the world can read it. You either need have your own purchased web space or you can choose from the wide varieties of blogging platforms like Blogger, WordPress, TypePad, Posterous, Tumblr and many more.
Personally, I prefer blogger platform (http://blogger.com). The main reasons being,

  • It is enough if you have a Gmail ID (Google account). With this ID you can create your blog easily.
  • Template (Design of the blog) manipulation is made very easy.
  • Adding your own scripts / codes / widgets is simple.
  • You can create multiple blogs using the same ID.
  • You will have your own blogger profile and share your likes and interests with the world.
  • You will be always connected to Gmail.
  • You can invite your Gmail contacts to read your blog easily. (There is an option for this)
  • You can flaunt your favorite websites and blogs using a feature called “Blogs I Follow”
  • You can earn revenue by using Google adsense and Amazon.com. (Recently Amazon.com decided to provide incentives to the bloggers if they would create sales for Amazon products in their blogs)
  • Recently a new feature called “Template Designer” has been introduced wherein you can provide a neat and sleek look to your blog.
  • There is a feature that also allows you to share your favorite audio clip in your profile. 🙂 If you just click on it, the music starts playing 🙂 PS: This is one of my favorite features 🙂

Well I can go on and on with the reasons 🙂  You’ll get to know more only if you start using it.
So I think I’ve told you enough about the blogger platform.
Let us get started with how to create a blog.

Step 1: Open the page http://blogger.com

Step 2: I am sure everyone has a Gmail / Google ID, so you can login using your Gmail / Google ID and password. If you don’t have a Google account no problem!! 🙂 Just click on “CREATE A BLOG”
Step 3: You will get the following window. Fill up the form as per the requirements. NOTE: You can give any Email ID of yours which exists.

Step 4: Tick mark the “I accept” check box and click “CONTINUE”.

Step 5: Next you need to give a name to your blog and a URL. Like if you want your URL to be www.bpratiba.blogspot.com, “bpratiba” is what you need to specify in the URL text box. After you are done with this click “CONTINUE”.

Step 6: In the next step you’ll be given an option to pick a starter template. (You can change this template later) Just select one and click “CONTINUE”.

Step 7: Finally you have created a blog!! You will get a notification as follows. Click on “START BLOGGING”

Step 8: You will get a window as follows. Just type whatever you feel like in the given text boxes. You can also add pictures, links; you can change the font, font size, indentations and so on. Many options are there to modify the content. If you know HTML, well and good! You can always use the HTML editor using “Edit Html” tab. In fact, using HTML editor is the best option

Step 9: I just added a picture here. Now you can click on “PUBLISH POST”.

Step 10: You’ll get the following window. Click on Edit post if you want to make changes to the post again. Click on “View Post” in a new window if you want to see what you’ve created.

Step 11: This is how your blog post will look like. You can go back edit the post 🙂

I hope this was clear and useful. This post is exclusively dedicated to the beginners in Blogger world 🙂


What is sitemap and how to create it?


You may have wondered many sites having this little word called sitemap in their website’s footer.
Site Map basically is the index of all the pages of your site and combines them in one location. It makes search engine’s crawlers detect the pages efficiently. It is better for SEO.

Anyways creating a sitemap manually is a difficult task. I created my sitemap using a software called Coffee Cup Sitemapper. I have the full version(Buyed) but not all can be able to buy.

So I researched the net and came across a great website which would allow you to do the same. XML-sitemaps.com allows you to create the site map online .


  1. Open www.xml-sitemaps.com using your browser.
  2. Use the free online site map generator.
  3. Enter your site info. on the page like the address, duration of change etc.
  4. Click next.
  5. It will take some time depending on the size of your site. Took 7 minutes for mine as my site is in initial stage.
  6. Now the site will display your links to download.
  7. Just download the XML and HTML files and upload it to your root directory of your website.

You are done. 🙂
