Finally fixed my dot net 4.0 problem

I use to have .NET 4.0 problem. It didn’t want to install, or it was installed, but it didn’t run properly. The problem with that is I couldn’t run or use applications written in .NET Such as Paint.NET, Handbrake, or the Unified Remote for android. Today, I found another application that I would like to try out, but it was using .NET….
Previously the fix was a cleanup tool, as well as uninstalling and reinstalling (in a specific order) all the dotnet in the computer. But it still did not work.
So I searched again for the fix…. again… and finally found something that works. more or less. handbrake still not working, but at least i get a different error message. maybe need to reinstall handbrake itself…
I would like to share with anyone else who may have the problem. just check out the link
basically the steps are:
1. open command line in administrator mode
2. type the following command exactly. it may be case sensitive, I didn’t want to take the chance.
for /F %D in (‘dir %WINDIR%\assembly %WINDIR%\Microsoft.NET\assembly /s /b /a:d’) do takeown /F %D && icacls %D /reset /T”
3. reinstall the dotnet in administrator mode. recommended the standalone installer. I already had it lying around from previous attempts.
and instead of my previous fatal error in the installation….
as you can see, i was so happy when i found this fix. hope it works for you.


Have enough blood to give blood


My sister is proud to show off that she is fit enough to give blood. She usually has a low blood count that she is sometimes not allowed. This time she had more blood count then previous. She credits it to her new recent slow carbon diet, as well as her hiking since new years. Her blood count is higher in spite of her weight being down from last year. The blood department is always requesting for more blood donations. The demand for it is high, while the supply is often low. The demand is due to operations, accidents as well as health conditions that require blood transfusion. If you want to donate blood, go to the hospital (during office hours is best) and donate. In order to donate blood you need to fulfill certain criteria. Basically you should be fit. Here is the list. 1. At least 55 kg. 2. Must not be sick recently. In the last 2 weeks. 3. Must not be taking medication. Not even panadol on that day. supplements do not count. 4. For women, not during their menstrual period or if their pregnant. Before you donate blood you will be given a check if you are fit to donate blood. First is a form that asks you a lot of questions regarding your health. Then a fitness check. Checking your blood pressure and heart rate. Then off to getting your blood. You have the option of getting local anesthetic. (i challenge you to try it without). then they take less then litre of your blood. The best part for me is they usually have food and giveaways. For more information check out the blood donation fb and twitter.

After all this time a cure for my stuffed nose

Finally, I found a cure for my the periodical stuffed nose. Strangely it involves holding my breath. I hope this information is useful for other people who has the problem, try it out, it feels amazing 😀

I was really desperate last night when I couldn’t breath through my nose comfortably, so I asked my wife to heal me energetically using pranic healing. It only helped a bit. But during the healing process, my mind actually thought of googling for a solution to my ailment. so after the healing process ended, I opened up the computer and search for the cure.

to my surprise I found it in a forum by Steve Pavlina. the first forum was at

Here’s an excerpt.

This is the simple exercise that has helped me so very much. If anyone here happens to have a stuffy nose, please try it out share how well it worked.

1. Breathe out. Hold your nose and close your mouth.
2. Hold your breath until it starts getting a bit uncomfortable. It’s faster if you walk around a bit. Nodding your head back and forth works too.
3. Keep your back straight and unplug your nose, keeping your mouth closed. Breathe as slowly as possible. You should feel your nose gently clearing out.

its essentially holding my breath to increase my carbon dioxide levels. kinda like when I hold my breath underwater.

Which lead me to a whole new paradigm shift about breathing. It is called buteyko method. Basically, we need a balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide. I’m taking my time to research this. Looks like the answer to most of my other periodical ailments, and explains why exercising clears them up.

I love the following quote from the website:
