How to remove a Friend on Facebook

I have a friend on Facebook is not really a friend. By that I mean, he is just collecting people who will agree to be his friend on Facebook and make himself seem popular. He is more interested in marketing himself than being a real friend.

If you have such a fiend for a friend and you want to stop being his/her marketing audience, follow these steps:

image 1. Find the fiend, 

image2. click on the fiend you want to remove. Then scroll to the bottom left corner and click on Remove from Friends.

installing pycrypto on windows with easy_install

If you have been hitting this error:

error: Setup script exited with error: Python was built with Visual Studio 2003;

extensions must be built with a compiler than can generate compatible binaries.
Visual Studio 2003 was not found on this system. If you have Cygwin installed,
you can try compiling with MingW32, by passing “-c mingw32″ to setup.py.

 

trying to install pycrypto on windows, http://blog.sadphaeton.com/2009/01/20/python-development-windows-part-2-installing-easyinstallcould-be-easier.html#comment-8 gives a great article on how to tell easy_install to use the mingw32 compiler instead of Visual Studio.

As of this writing, there was an error on the article which says you need to put a disutils.cfg file in ..python/lib/distutils/. The file name should be distutils.cfg.
