View Blocked ExpertsExchange Solutions for Free

This post is about accessing blocked answers on Readers who don't use it please ignore this post...

I really hate Experts-Exchange when it blocks access to answers posted on it. Stack Overflow is eating into it, which is great but experts-exchange still pops quite a few times in Google search results

So here's a really easy was to view blocked posts on it -
1. Install Firefox .
2. Install User Agent Switcher addon.
3. In Firefox, go to Tools >> Default User Agent >> Search Robots. Select Googlebot 2.1.
Now when you go to experts-exchange through search results, it will believe that you are a Googlebot. And the answers aren't blocked anymore.
After you're done. Reset the User Agent settings to use the default user agent.

Save full Images from .docx Word files

Here's a way to save pictures from .docx Word files. DOCX files are basically archives which can be opened with Winzip, Winrar, 7-Zip etc.

1. Open the file with your archiving software. I use 7-Zip. You can just do a right-click -- Open With Winzip..or whatever.
2. Inside the archive, go to Word -- Media folder. The images used in the .docx document are in this 'Media' folder. Just extract them.
Easy! Isn't it?
Check out the this trick to save images from a .doc Word file.
