Prevent Windows 8 automatically delete thumbnail cache

Its really annoying in Windows 8, everytime we go to a folder which contains hundreds of images or video files, image/video thumbnails are started appearing and we see the green bar is loading in the address bar. This is really annoying and in my case this lead to Windows explorer not responding situations and even restarting windows explorer. This is an issue in windows 8 which does not keep thumbnail cache for a long time. It automatically deletes thumbnail cache and thumbnails are rebuilt when a user browse to a folder containing files/sub folders. It is a simple way to prevent this automatic deletion.

Hacker's Python 3 - Multi Threaded TCP Echo server in Python

I have created a simple Multi - Threaded ECHO server in python. We can create it using python's socket and threading modules. This server listens for port 9999 of all interfaces.When started this server runs with a single thread and listens for an incoming connection. When a client tries to connect, this server creates a new thread to handle that connection. So multiple clients can communicate with the server with each client corresponds to a particular thread of the server.
