Converting .djvu file to .pdf file

DjVu (pronounced déjà vu) is a computer file format designed primarily to store scanned images, especially those containing text and line drawings. Basically some of the ebooks and comics are present in this format.

Portable Document Format (PDF) is a file format created by Adobe Systems as a represention for two-dimensional documents in a manner independent of the application software, hardware, and operating system. This is the most popular file format used for data and ebooks.

Since DjVu is not so popular as PDF I decided to share the cheap and best way to convert the DjVu format file into PDF format file.

1. Download & Install FreePDF which is used to print the documents as pdf files.

2. Download DjVu viewer namely windjview. It is a sourceforge project so it can be downloaded freely and it is a few kilo bytes file.

3. Now open the djvu file with windjview.

4. Choose "print" option and SELECT FreePDF as the PRINTER to print the file as PDF file.

So we successfully converted the djvu file into pdf freely and easily.


How to: Checking Hardware Configuration of a Computer

Whenever we buy a Laptop or a Desktop we will configure our DREAM machine with certain hardware specifications .. like x GHz processor, Graphic card with y memory and so on. But once we receive our shipment we don't know whether our DREAM machine is fitted with right configuration or not.

Since there is a chance of getting wrong hardware components during the time of assembly of our PC let us see one of the easy way to check the PC/Laptop hardware configuration without unscrewing it by using a PC audit software named Belarc Advisor.

Coolest thing about Belarc Advisor is it produces a detailed report of not only about the hardware configuration but also builds a detailed profile of the installed software, missing Microsoft hotfixes, anti-virus status, CIS (Center for Internet Security) benchmarks of your PC. The output is finally displayed in a webpage. And all these services are provided by Belarc Advisor in free for personal use.

So stop thinking about how to know the hardware configuration of your Laptop/Desktop and start using the Belarc Advisor.
