Magnet links not opening in torrent client from chrome?



I was in a situation, when I tried clicking on some magnet links, nothing would happen. I didnt know the reason. I have searched over internet and tried all the below methods.. still didnt get any clue.. finally found the reason to be so stupid.

Anyways , that I will tell in the end. The mostly suggested fixes those I found are also added here. Thanks to the original writers.

First, let’s check your registry.

  1. Hit windows key.
  2. Type in “regedit” without the quotes.
  3. Navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Magnet\shell\open\command\
  4. This is what you’ll see (below)
    utorrent as program to open magnet links in regedit
    Now, where the arrow is pointing – you want to make sure that is where your uTorrent is located. I have mine located in a different folder than the default install directory, so watch out for that.
  5. Next,  navigate to the following folder. C:\Users\[your_user_name]\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data
  6. Close Chrome Completely. (The first time I did this, I didn’t close Chrome, so my changes didn’t get saved)
  7. Edit the “Local State” file.
  8. Hit Ctrl+F and look for “magnet”
    make sure it says false next to magnet
  9. You want to make sure this is what you see “magnet”: false, for me, it started out as true.
  10. Save and close file

Doing this also didnt help me. So I again investigated. I came to know that my wife has installed some other torrent client, other than my preferred utorrent. Later she only uninstalled it, so that all file associations got removed. Now I had to open utorrent, and associate torrent files and magnet links to utorrent. Thats it. Things started working.


Arabian grape juice

The first time I’ve seen this arabian grape juice is in bangalore juice junctions. I wondered whether this is prepared from those grapes imported from saudi arabia. I tried it and it was awesome!! [except that the pulpy grape thing reminded me of something weird ;-)]. The juice was so exotic that, it reminded me of poonam pandey.

Anyways, I had done enuf amount of googling on the recipe. FYI, the grapes are not having any connection with Arabia. May be the recipe came from the creative hands of veiled Arabian women. But, I sincerely don’t think that the recipe would be as sweet and cool [obviously juice cant be hot] as them. 😉

Preparation: Get some good grapes, wash it, boil in hot water for around 5 minutes. [Get the exact timing from trial and error] . After boiling, the seeds will be sedimented in the bottom. The pulp will be hanging in the middle portion and the skin of grape will be on top. Sometimes u may need to squeeze the pulp out from some grapes. Remove the seeds and skins. Take the pulp in a bowl. The skin can be grind-ed to have some juice. Mix that juice with some amount of sugar and chill the mixture. Serve the juice mixed with the pulp.

Order pages in wordpress


, , , ,

Now, I will start by telling how to create new pages in wordpress and how to arrange them in order.
For creating a new page, go to ‘Pages’ menu in dashboard, ‘Add New’ page.
While adding new page, set order for the page. If you are giving 0, it will be aligned next to the ‘Home’ button in the menu bar. The page with order 1 will be the next…

Its a simple thing. But I didnt notice the order option. So I spent 5 minutes on googling, how to do this.
