Facebook Cover Photos

Personalizing your Facebook Cover Photo is easy, once you know how to search for one. Here’s a quick guide to help you find exactly what you want:

  1. Go to Google Image Search
  2. Search for something, for instance: Fringe
  3. On the left, click ‘Exactly…’ under Any Size
  4. Enter a width of 851
  5. Enter a height of 316
  6. Now all the images in your results are the perfect size for your Facebook Cover.
  7. Keep on searching to find something uniquely you!

Now, if there’s a watermark/logo, you can remove it in Gimp or Photoshop. Or you can just pick an image without a mark in it.

Happy Facebook-Stalking! j/k lol

Cafe World Cheat #2

UPDATE 3/18/2010: I have created some tools to help at http://www.cafeworldhelper.com. Included are a cooking suggestion tool, more cheats and tricks, a forum, even a spice tool.

I’ve got another cheat for all you cafe world fans.

If you turn your stove toward a wall or table or another stove, you will not have to walk to the stove. Ever. In fact, the only place your character will walk to is a serving table.

Bonus Tip

Max your buzz rating to 105.0 by making sure no customer leaves without food. Following my original Cafe World post, will almost ensure this.

Once your employees are boxed in, if anyone leaves without food, (re)move the table/chair where that person was sitting.

Farm Town Fix

Farm Town has been down due to DNS problems. What I am proposing is a temporary fix that points you to ns1.slashkey.com as a secondary DNS server. Here”s the fix for Windows:

  1. Click on Start, then Run.
  2. Type “cmd” and Enter.
  3. Type “ipconfig /all” and Enter.
  4. Write down the numbers on the “DNS Servers …” lin
  5. Type “exit” and Enter.
  6. Click on Start, then Control Panel.
  7. Open Network Connections.
  8. Right Click on Local Area Connection or Wireless Connection.
  9. Click on Properties.
  10. Select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) !You will have to scroll!
  11. Click on Properties
  12. Click on “Use the following DNS server addresses”
  13. Enter the number you wrote down in step 4 as Preferred.
  14. Enter “67.228.254.4” as Alternate.
  15. Click OK.
  16. Click OK.
  17. Close Network Connections window.
  18. Play Farm Town.

If you are still having problems, shutdown your computer and restart it after 5-10 seconds. If the problems persist, contact SlashKey support.

I am in no way associated with SlashKey, Farm Town, or Facebook.
