Here is one of the mods for EU3 that I like the most. It adds in dozens of new countries… all of which are American natives :)
It is a largely missing piece to the great game of EU3. Using this mod in your game will populate the Americas with lots of historically accurate nations. Normally you just discover those regions, deal with the few active tribes there and suddenly colonize everything really quickly and have the culture and religion change .
This mod still leaves many coastlines colonizable (to get you a foothold on the continent) but the rest requires you to “deal” with the American natives like you would in any other part of the world now. They are real countries, you can perform diplomacy with them, wipe them out, ally with them, etc.
I wish to encourage the author of this mod (Guillaume HJ) to continue with their work. It has been a great resource for the community so thanks a lot! Original paradox forum thread: Click Here
Download Age of Discovery Mod 0.04
After spending the last several months plotting it out (then finding out much of my plotting was inapplicable because someone at Paradox apparently accidentally hit the off switch on convenient map modding), here is the first version of the planned
No Very Few Empty Provinces mod: Age of Discovery.
My vision with this mod, which I hope to find the time to fulfil, is a mod that focus on what was withotu a shadow of a doubt the most important part of the Europa Universalis era (no, not the framing of the cousin of the third wife of the second son of the stablehand of the steward to the favorite count of the uncle of the Holy Roman Emperor): the reality-defining shock that was Christian Europe’s encounter with the Rest of the World, and the Rest of the World’s encounter with Christian Europe.
The first and foremost part of doing this will, of course, be developing the Rest of the World, starting with the part the European most heavily interacted with (and in) during the EU era: the Americas (starting with the North because information is easier to come by there).
Even later, however, changes to Europe should remain fairly limited (there are none for now), focused mostly on making use of new Divine Wind features that Europe doesn’t yet use (such as factions), on introducing broad changes for the rest of the world that also affect Europe, or introducing change to Europe to affect how they interact with the Rest of the World.
An easy to make organic air freshener is a great idea for whenever you have people coming over to visit your house.
- Gather up your fruit skins and peels that you would have otherwise discarded.
- Place them into the oven at a low heat (200F/94C)
- You will know when it is done by the strong but pleasant scent. Leave the heat on for as long as you like the scent to be at its strongest.
It saves money, is better for the environment and I personally feel that it smells better overall than store-bought aerosol cans.
Skyrim is full of great books to read in the game and now someone over at capane.us has dumped the text from the game’s books and put them into two of the most popular ebook formats:
.epub (iOS, nook and a ton of others)
There are even some enhanced Spanish copies of the files here with the decorative letters and other graphics: http://capane.us/2011/12/02/¿como-se-dice-dovahkiin-gutenberg-en-espanol/
Due to some really kind user interface choices by Amazon you can download any book you like for free from the device itself and keep the books forever too.
Simply click “BUY FOR $XYZ” on any book’s page and let the download begin. Now hit the “CANCEL” link. The book will continue to download itself to your device and you must open it up. Keep the book open for an extended period of time and you will be allowed to keep it forever it seems.

Reaver implements a brute force attack against Wifi Protected Setup (WPS) registrar PINs in order to recover WPA/WPA2 passphrases, as described in http://sviehb.files.wordpress.com/2011/12/viehboeck_wps.pdf.
Reaver has been designed to be a robust and practical attack against WPS, and has been tested against a wide variety of access points and WPS implementations.
On average Reaver will recover the target AP’s plain text WPA/WPA2 passphrase in 4-10 hours, depending on the AP. In practice, it will generally take half this time to guess the correct WPS pin and recover the passphrase.

Instead of using a whole pot of water to cook up pasta you can save yourself time, water, energy and money by doing it with cold water in a frying pan.
Take your pan out and put in your pasta and pour cold water over it. It will cook faster than it would with a whole pot of boiling water and require less energy. This is particularly useful in emergencies and camping situations.
A tasty by product of this method of cooking pasta is that it leaves behind a thick water that can be used as a base to create your own sauces with.
