Setting up a Screen Saver on MAC


Did you know why Screen Savers were created in the first place? Well, as the name suggests, they were created to save the Screens, like Literally. Back in the days the screens or monitors were CRTs – Cathode Ray Tube [Nerd Alert]! The Cathode Ray Tube is a vacuum tube that contains one or more electron guns and a phosphorescent screen, and is used to display images. It modulates, accelerates, and deflects electron beam onto the screen to create the images.

So to protect the screens from literally burning out phospor in the CRTs, Screen Savers were introduced. A screensaver is a computer program that blanks the screen or fills it with moving images or patterns when the computer has been idle for a long time.

Alright, enough of this Gyaan, Now let’s see how to actually set one on your MAC.

Setting up a Screensaver

Click on the Apple[] icon up top> System Preferences

Click on the Desktop & Screen Saver

Click on the Screen Saver Tab on top.

On this screen you’ll find some pre-installed screen Savers in the left pane.

Choose your poison wisely.

You can also set the time after which the Screen Saver should start in the system is left idle.

You can choose to show a Digital Clock along with the Screen Saver of your choice.

And that’s it. From this point on, whenever your MAC is left idle for the Specified time your favorite Screensaver will appear and help you protect your screen!

How to Point a Domain Name From GoDaddy to Bluehost in 2020


This is the most common issues people come across while managing or building a site. You get your Domains from one service provider and the Web Hosting from another service provider. Why would one do that, you ask? Well, the answer is simple, Good offers from various providers.

Godaddy.com is the most preferred Service provider for purchasing Domain Names. They provide Domain Names as low as ₹ 99/- for an year.

On the other hand one of the best Hosting Service provider out there is Bluehost.com. Bluehost has a great uptime guarantee of 99.98%. No web host can provide 100% uptime, so 99.98% is a strong showing – it translates to roughly one hour and 45 minutes of downtime per year.

Getting back to the original issue at hand – So you got a super cheap Domain Name from Godaddy and a Web Hosting from Bluehost, now what?

What do you do, so that, if anyone types in the domain name that you got, let’s say thinkwebindia.com, remember which is on GoDaddy.com opens the website that is stored on Bluehost servers?

Confusing? I know. But trust me it is super simple once you understand the basics of it.

Domain Names are nothing but pointers to a physical space. So in order to let these pointers work properly, we have to make a route to the correct physical space, i.e., your Web Hosting Server – which is BlueHost in our case.

How to Point a Godaddy Domain to BlueHost Hosting Server?

Get the Domain Name Server names from BlueHost. This is your Web Hosting Service provider where the website is located.

Login to Bluehost using your credentials.

Once Logged into the BlueHost account. In the left bar locate Domains and click on it.

In the My Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you have tagged with BlueHost. Click on the Manage dropdown and choose DNS to locate the DNS server address for BlueHost.

And here are your Bluehost DNS addresses. Copy these and keep it safe for a later use.

Now let’s move to GoDaddy to update the physical site address location. As of now, if someone types in the domain name that you purchased from GoDaddy will ONLY show a page from Godaddy and not the actual site that resides on Bluehost.

Anyways, once you are logged in to your Godaddy Account, click on the Account name dropdown and click on the Manage Domains option.

On the My Domains page, click on the Manage DNS to reveal the DNS addresses on Godaddy

Here you are. You have the Godaddy Nameserver Addresses. There are DNS address that we need to replace with the Godaddy DNS addresses.

Click on the Button – Change. On the next page, you’ll have the option for updating the new DNS addresses.

Paste the Bluehost DNS addresses here and click save.

Note: The DNS updation could take upto 48-72 hours to take effect. So be patient if everything is done correctly, the Domain Name that was on Godaddy will point to a physical site on Bluehost.

And that’s about it. We have successfully configured Godaddy domain name to point to a website that is stored on Bluehost. Hope this helps!

How do I Right Click on MAC?


This is the frustration that a hardcore Windows user face while using MAC for the first time. How in the hell do I Right Click? There is no right click button. I understand, I faced the same issue during my initial days of MAC use.

Method 1

To right click on a MAC keep the Control Key down and Tap on your mouse or trackpad.

Method 2

Double tap on the mouse or trackpad for Right Click.

Method 3

If you really want a “Right” Click button, there is a way. Configure the mouse or trackpad to use the right side of the mouse or trackpad for right clicking.

Point to note – Right Click on MAC is officially known as Secondary Click.

Click on  icon > System Preferences > Mouse / Trackpad.

Under the Point & Click Tab, select Secondary Click.

Select Right Bottom Corner from the drop down.

You are all set.

This is such a trivial yet important & irritating issue that I wasted days initially on my MAC. Hope this article helps people out there.
