Looking Back: 2007

Let us Look back at some cool Websites that I have discovered this year and put them in my folder.

Gadget News: Daily Gadgets with a twist
a new, fresh site focusing on gadgets ranging from eco-friendly, to the obscure.

Meet the World
Let me quote, its better:
Icaro Doria is Brazilian, 25 and has been working for the magazine Grande Reportagem, in Lisbon, Portugal, for the last 3 years. He is part of the team (with Luis Silva Dias, João Roque, Andrea Vallenti and João Roque) that produced the flags campaign which has been circulating the Earth in chain letters via e-mail. Icaro gave us a small statement about the campaign, translated by Isabell Erdmann:The magazine Revista Grande Reportagem is a Hard Journalism magazine, on the same line as the Times. The idea was to bring across the concept that the magazine offers profound journalism about topics of real importance to the world of today.
This is how we thought of the concept Meet the World.
We started to research relevant, global, and current facts and, thus, came up with the idea to put new meanings to the colours of the flags. We used real data taken from the websites of Amnesty International and the UNO.
The campaign has been running in Portugal since January 2005. There are eight flags that portray very current topics like the division of opinions about the war in Iraq in the United States, the violence against women in Africa, the social inequality in Brazil, the drug trafficking in Columbia, Aids and malaria in Angola, etc.
With regards to the email presenting the campaign as being done by a Norwegian diplomat, this information is completely wrong. There is no Norwegian diplomat called Charung Gollar, there was no presentation in the UNO, and the campaign is not called ‘The Power of the Stars’. This was all invented and is going round the world via email.
That’s it, basically.

But yeah, its really cool!

Robot soldiers
Who is this technology intended for?
Its really cool, watch the video

Here is the much awaited topic of the world - Games. Here is a list of excellent online games that not just give you entertainment but also gives chance to improve your alertness and reflexes....


Buddy's Math Jokes

Please do not ask for explanation...because this is absolutely funny....but remember, you got to laugh with your brain, not only your mouth..!


How to Download Anything

If you’re going to illegally download stuff, please do it right so that you don’t get caught. Don’t use services like Kazaa or Limewire to get your goods. They’re filled with junk and can get you found out and sued by the copyright owners.
If you are going to download music, games, software, movies, anything, use these simple steps.

  • Get Peerguardian 2. Peerguardian blocks known government and anti-p2p groups. This keeps them from connecting to you via the tracker and knowing you are downloading. That means it will be a lot harder for them to nail you for downloading..
  • Get a torrent program. I suggest either utorrent utorrent or Azureus. I usually don’t search for the actual files I need using these programs, just use them to download.
  • Search for your torrent. I use The Pirate Bay and Mininova. Both still allow US visitors, and I can usually find what I need. There are also private trackers, but don’t worry about those for now. Once you get the hang of downloading, you can get join a private tracker
  • Make sure that Peerguardian is running while your torrent program is downloading. Otherwise you could get caught
  • Optional: Have your torrent program encrypt the data. This means that your ISP won’t detect that you are using the bittorrent protocol, which means it makes it harder for them to throttle your bandwidth just for bittorrent. You can find some good guides on TorrentFreak on how to encrypt

Be happy. You got your files and didn’t get caught. If you want optimization tips and tons more, check out TorrentFreak. And still scan everything for viruses before you use it.

And yeah, the links will take you to the appropriate page where you can get your stuff from.

1 Awesome Tip about Google, you don't know about!

Just about when I thought I got everything out of Gmail, I discovered my top favorite feature. We have published over 30 tools in Gmail RoundUp 1 and almost 80 tools and tips in Gmail RoundUp 2 but never mentioned anything similar to this one. Tribute for this one goes to my ‘I am not into computers‘ type girlfriend.
Let’s say that your email address is ‘’, basically everything sent to any of the following email addresses will be forwarded to your primary email.
And that’s not all, you can place as many dots as you want, it can be even something like ‘’ and you’ll still get it on ‘’
Additionally, I just also found out that you can embed random text to your email ID using ‘+’ sign. That is to say ‘’ can be used as your email address, as well.
Ok I got it. Now what ?

1. One email for every purpose
Instead of using different email addresses for various purposes (work, school, friends, etc.) you can use different variations of your Gmail and filter incoming mails by ’sent to’ address. For instance, all incoming mail sent to ‘’ can be put to folder ‘work’, messages sent to ‘’ can be put to ‘friends’, ‘’ can be used for newsletters, and so on.
2. Track/Block spammers
When signing up for some website, say, you can add thatwebsite to your Gmail user ID (eg. This way you can block your subscription whenever you want and even identify those websites that distribute your email address to spammers.
More Tips? Surprise me in the comments.

Journey through the center of the Earth

Suppose you could drill a hole through the Earth and then drop into it. How long would it take you to pop up on the other side of the Earth?


Beyond Wikipedia: 20 References You Can’t Do Without

You may not know this, but there are actually a number of great references available to you that isn’t Wikipedia. Now, don’t get me wrong - I love Wikipedia, too. Whenever I first begin a project I almost always go and overview it through Wikipedia. It’s a great introduction to a subject, also connecting you easily to other related ideas, people and places.
But it’s not all you have. Now, put aside the enormous amount of electronic resources your school gives you access to that you never use, this is mostly resources anyone can use (with a couple of notable exceptions). Some even make use of Wikipedia, though not in the usual way. We’ll start with general resources, and then get down to the resources available to a few specific disciplines.

Bartleby - This site has far more than quotes, you can find full texts here as well - poetry in particular.Citizendium - This is supposed to be the more “professional” Wikipedia. So far it’s not really taken off, but the information here is often a bit more “elite” but usually not as - is a sort of “commercial” Wikipedia. It makes use of the info on Wikipedia, combined with many other reference sties, to become a one stop shop. It also has a mobile site that I tend to use a great deal.ePodunk - If you’re looking for information regarding a city or place, it doesn’t get much better than ePodunk.

Encylopedia Britannica - I know it seems awfully “old school” but this site is an excellent source of information and much more authoritative than Wikipedia.

Scholarpedia - A step up from both Wikipedia and Citizendium in terms of scholarly respectability, it doesn’t have nearly as much information, but the articles have all been written by experts with peer review. An academic paradise!

JSTOR - You know all those stuffy journals around your professors office? And those articles in your course packets? This is pretty much that. For research it enormously useful.

Oxford English Dictionary - The definitive resource when it comes to the English language. Not just for English majors, the OED (as it’s known) is useful for almost anyone in the social sciences.
Wikiseek - When you absolutely, positively, must have the real thing - WikiSeek is Wikipedia with a better search engine. I would also suggest WikiMindMap for when you’re trying to get a better holistic grasp of a subject.

Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.

The real measure of your wealth is how much you'd be worth if you lost all your money.

If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow.

Honesty may be the best policy, but it's important to remember that apparently, by elimination, dishonesty is the second-best policy.

The Beginning
Say you've spent the first 10 years of your life sleeping under the stairs of a family who loathes you. Then, in an absurd, magical twist of fate you find yourself surrounded by wizards, a caged snowy owl, a phoenix-feather wand, and jellybeans that come in every flavor, including strawberry, curry, grass, and sardine. Not only that, but you discover that you are a wizard yourself! This is exactly what happens to young Harry Potter in J.K. Rowling's enchanting, funny debut novel, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. In the nonmagic human world--the world of "Muggles"--Harry is a nobody, treated like dirt by the aunt and uncle who begrudgingly inherited him when his parents were killed by the evil Voldemort. But in the world of wizards, small, skinny Harry is famous as a survivor of the wizard who tried to kill him. He is left only with a lightning-bolt scar on his forehead, curiously refined sensibilities, and a host of mysterious powers to remind him that he's quite, yes, altogether different from his aunt, uncle, and spoiled, piglike cousin Dudley. A mysterious letter, delivered by the friendly giant Hagrid, wrenches Harry from his dreary, Muggle-ridden existence: "We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry." Of course, Uncle Vernon yells most unpleasantly, "I AM NOT PAYING FOR SOME CRACKPOT OLD FOOL TO TEACH HIM MAGIC TRICKS!" Soon enough, however, Harry finds himself at Hogwarts with his owl Hedwig... and that's where the real adventure--humorous, haunting, and suspenseful--begins.
This is it! The highly anticipated (and dreaded) final book of the Harry Potter series. What will happen to Harry? Will he survive against Voldemort? This is the book that holds the answers to these and many other questions raised throughout the seven book series....
Here is a handful of Harry Potter Fan sites which all the Harry Potter fans would enjoy for sure!! it once and never forget it!, launched on October 19th 2001, has dramatically changed the scene of Harry Potter websites since its launch. It was formed by a merge of two relatively small sites, Harry Potter Fun and Harry Potter Unlimited. The sites joined coding skills and content resources to create the ultimate Potter site.

Veritaserum: Let the truth be told!

Veritaserum in terms of Harry Potter is the name of a truth potion. A few drops and everything is out! This site, as you should have known, is also a fan site dealing more with pictures, videos and stuff along with trivia and the latest news. Also are links in this site to many other of its kind.

the Web.

Leaky's interview archive is one of the things of which it is most proud. Besides Jo
Rowling, it has interviewed people associated with every corner of the Harry
Potter franchise and fandom: The producers and directors of the first four films; the
executives at Scholastic; the company that produces the books in America; many
actors from the film from the main trio of actors (Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson,
Rupert Grint) straight down the line to extras and fans.

The Integrator uses webMathematica technology to bring the computational capabilities of Mathematica to the web.
The heart of The Integrator is Mathematica's built-in Integrate function--the same one you use when accessing Mathematica directly. When you type in an integral, The Integrator uses webMathematica to send the integral to the Mathematica kernel, which computes the result using the Integrate function. The result is then embedded into the web page as typeset output.

Kenneth Parker Photographs

Kenneth Parker is a large-format landscape colorist working principally in remote pristine wilderness areas throughout the world where he has trekked and kayaked extensively. He is inexorably drawn to the elemental earth/ocean forces and their compelling magic, translating into arresting imagery the depths of these feelings, rich in power, radiant. His early experience as fine art color pioneer Eliot Porter’s field assistant helped to nurture a loving eye devoted to isolating and capturing the mysteries in nature that he struggled for decades to unravel as a research scientist in oceanography and global climate change. Paul Caponigro has also been a principal influence on his development as a consistent mentor to Parker since the mid-70s.

Most of Parker’s photographs are captured over the course of 5-10 day backpacking excursions hauling 75-85 pounds of large-format camera equipment as he becomes immersed in a profound sense of place. Often several days are spent contemplating the changing light and intimacy of a composition before completing a single exposure. Usually only one or two distinctive images will result from one of these journeys.

Over the past three decades, Parker has produced a body of work in several formats that has been widely exhibited and published. While a great deal of that time was occupied with his natural science career, he consistently maintained and exercised the creative passions that have now fully committed his life focus to photography.

Here is the link to his site filled with fabulous photographs:
