You Tube's anti-piracy software.

YouTube's failure to complete a key piece of anti-piracy software as promised could represent a serious obstacle to efforts by Google, its new owner, to forge closer relations with the media and entertainment industry.

The video website, the internet sensation of 2006, promised in September the software would be ready by the end of this year. Known as a "content identification system", the technology is meant to make it possible to track down copyrighted music or video on YouTube, making it the first line of defence against piracy on the wildly popular website.

YouTube said on Friday the technology would not be formally launched this year and YouTube's offices were closed until the new year. While providing no further details about when the system would be made formally available, it said tests of the system had been under way with some media companies since October and the system remained "on track".


I understood Ajax at last.

So, I won over a battle of patience at last and decided to educate myself about 'Ajax'.

I have been coming across this term several times in a day and I banked on my dependable wikipedia to learn about 'Ajax'.

Ajax, shorthand for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML, is a web development technique for creating interactive web applications.

The intent is to make web pages feel more responsive by exchanging small amounts of data with the server behind the scenes, so that the entire web page does not have to be reloaded each time the user requests a change. This is meant to increase the web page's interactivity, speed, and usability.

The first use of the term in public was by Jesse James Garrett in February 2005. Garrett thought of the term while in the shower, when he realized the need for a shorthand term to represent the suite of technologies he was proposing to a client.

That is an amusing story.

Now after reading this I immediately recognised its applications; I have seen it so many times
when I book my train tickets on line.

Surely this is an excellent way of presenting data and web forms; it reduces the bandwith of a website, loads the web site faster too.

But what about the SEO aspect of it?
I must find out.

Malocclusion is not a disease.

Approach an experienced orthodontist and he will immediately make you feel relaxed by saying that ‘malocculsion’ is not a disease.

It might be associated with various dysfunctions of the head and neck, known as Cranio-Mandibular Dysfunctions, or CMD.

Dysfunction of an organ or organ system is defined as disease. Some dentists, therefore, believe that orthodontists can prevent or treat certain diseases of the head and neck by means of treating specific occlusal dysfunctions.

An orthodontist is a dentist who specializes in diagnosing and treating malocclusions, which are mis-alignments of the teeth, jaws, or both.

Residents of Alexandria are a fortunate lot to have the Hayfield Dental Care in their locality mainly because all of the dentists at Hayfield Dental Care have received advanced or specialty training in dental and oral hygiene.

Hayfield Dental care has in its team full time specialists in orthodontics and they can perform almost any procedure without the need for a referral to another dental clinic.

All of the dentists at Hayfield Dental Care have perfect records with the Virginia Board of Dentistry with a history of zero complaints.

Give them a call at 703-971-2220.

Ordinary Differential Equations - Series Solutions.

This blog post is about a software for maths teachers and students.

I trust my sister, a maths professor read this and find it to be usful for her maths academy.

Solves boundary-value or initial-value problems involving nonlinear or linear ordinary differential equations of any order, or systems of such. The conditions may also be linear or nonlinear equations involving the unknown functions and their derivatives.

The solution produced is a continuous function in the form of finite power or trigonometric series, depending on the program, of user-specified number of terms valid in the entire defined interval and expanded about a user-chosen center of expansion.

Results, including the graph, can be saved or printed. You can also copy the graph to the clipboard, which you can then paste where you please (Word, Paint, etc.). You have one-click control of the graph with zooming, panning, centering, etc.

The solution may be stored in a file which may be later read by a suitable program (like POWER AND TRIGONOMETRIC SERIES) to further study it to find roots, maxima and minima, derivatives, integral, graph.

You can predefine any recurring constants. Handles a wide variety of functions, including trigonometric and hyperbolic. Results can be saved or printed. Includes a help file with instructions, examples and methodology.



SpyCatcher is an advanced anti-spyware tool.

I guess you don't need any introductions to spyware. In my opinion and experience, these are more dangerous than viruses.

SpyCatcher's comprehensive database detects tens of thousands of spyware, adware, trojans and worms, from the most common to the most obscure, and SpyCatcher updates itself automatically to provide immediate protection from the latest danger.

SpyCatcher is the only anti-spyware product with a Reinstall Shield that defends against advanced, aggressive spyware programs which silently reinstall after deletion. SpyCatcher's Protector watches your computer for running spyware and alerts you immediately when new spyware is installed, and you can run full sweeps automatically using the built-in Scheduler.

SpyCatcher's extensive online encyclopedia lets you read about the threat a program represents, ways you may have contracted it and statistics on how many other users have encountered it.

SpyCatcher's Detective feature lets you see all the hidden programs on your computer and easily remove any you don't want. SpyCatcher even disguises disabled adware as "active" to trick some ad-dependent software into running even though its threat has been eliminated.

SpyCatcher is an easy and powerful way to protect yourself from the many malicious programs that bypass anti-virus software and firewalls - don't go online without it!

The factors that LSI looks at!

The factors that LSI looks at are the Title Tag and the textual content of the page that your link is on.

Latent Symantec Indexing (LSI) is a very complex new algorithm that Google has been testing. To be more specific, LSI essentially determines how words are related to each other.

We are now entering on the familiar ground of SEO and link popularity.

Ok, let me not threaten anymore with Google’s algorithm terms.
I have been adapting the methods given by USWeb and let me share it with you here.

The main aspects of earning link popularity are press release distribution, purchasing links from link brokers, trading links with other websites (reciprocal linking) and link baiting.

Press release distribution is the most effective way to increase link popularity but it is also the most difficult because the content of your release needs to be interesting enough for publications to want to write about it.

Purchasing links from link brokers is easy and cost effective but you usually don’t receive the best quality of links because most are not within textual content and Google even automatically removes the value of links when they are placed at the bottom of websites with a whole list of outbound links.

Reciprocal linking was once the best method to increase link popularity but now it provides very little value unless you aren’t trading links with the same websites and you only receive one-way links, even then they usually are on link pages and aren’t placed within valuable textual content that is relevant to your website.

Link baiting is also a very effective way to increase link popularity but is also extremely difficult to accomplish. Link baiting is the process of hunting out links, although you are bringing the links to you through unique and popular site content. This is the natural way that popular websites remain popular and rank well in the search engines.

The best way to increase link popularity is through Blogs because blogs naturally are filled with valuable content that the search engines crave and they also naturally link to other websites they talk about within their posts.

You need links from hundreds or even thousands of Blogs with the same concept and then you will see significant improvements in your rankings.

Blogitive was created for this very purpose. Blogitive currently has more than 2000 Blogs within its network and is growing substantially every day. Through Blogitive you can submit a web release (mini press release) to these Bloggers and they will write about your release and link to your website in any manner you want, including any URL and any keyword phrase.

Catalog and classify your media collection easy!

W hat is Media Catalog Studio?
It is the program that can manage catalogs of all multimedia files in your collection. No matter whether it's – on your hard drive, CD Rom, DVD, floppy disk or portable Flash-device.

Once you have connected a device with the files to the computer, indicating the file's locations, the program will remember all the information on MP3, WMA, MP4, MPC, APE, OGG, AAC, FLAC, WV, WAV, AVI, MPEG, WMV, Video and Audio CD files.

This information will be stored in the database and you won't need to call to all your friends or search all shelves, looking for the necessary disk. Media Catalog Studio will remind you of its location, supplementing the information on artists and albums.

You will discover all power of work with the database supplied with the user-friendly interface. You can ask for any parameter from your catalog in any order: artists, albums, tracks, genres, bitrates, ratings, moods and more.

Warning forever.

Your enemies in the fabulous freeware shooter Warning Forever are increasingly gigantic bosses that grow large enough to take over the screen. Keep firing and moving to demolish the massive spaceships.

The premise of Warning Forever is simple. You command a tiny green ship with a range-adjustable cannon. You must battle a series of ever-growing, monstrous spaceships outfitted with cannons, lasers, rockets, and other weapons.

Each level averages less than a minute to beat, which only fuels the game's addictiveness. The first few levels are on the easy side, but advance into the higher levels and you'll be rewarded with battles of epic proportions.

Warning Forever is an extremely quick download, and installation is simple and fast. The graphics aren't cutting-edge, but they're appropriate for the style of the game. To keep its file size tiny, the game forgoes a musical soundtrack, but it does employ sound effects of destruction as you annihilate your foes (or are annihilated). The classic-in-the-making Warning Forever will entice nearly every gamer who enjoys a space shootout.


U.S. government is a silver buyer.

When U.S. government is a silver buyer, don’t you think it is wise to align with them and enjoy the benefits of a shrewd investing?

The reason for U.S. silver buying spree is that government silver hoard is gone; above ground stockpiles of silver bullion are low, shrinking rapidly and approaching zero.

Historically in times of market turmoil, precious metals are one of the only financial asset classes in an investment portfolio that are not simultaneously someone else's liability.

Another good reason to buy precious metals like silver or gold or platinum is they become solid hedge against stock market vagaries and declining U.S. dollar.

For over 30 years, the Monex companies have been America's silver and precious metals investment leader.

Monex Precious Metals is home to a large and dedicated staff of hard asset professionals committed to serving your precious metals investment needs and being America's best dealer with a convenient market and competitive precious metals prices.

Credible rival to MS Office

An increasingly credible rival to MS Office, includes powerful applications for making text documents, spreadsheets, presentations, diagrams, and databases, as well as HTML and XML documents.

Not only does it let you edit basic documents, such as letters and faxes, it also handles complex and multipart documents with bibliographies, reference tables, and indexes.

The interface is similar to that of MS Office users, and even advanced Office users will find almost everything they're used to: templates, collaborative features (versions, recording changes), macros, and even a programming language. lets you open and save documents in formats as diverse as MS Office, PDF, HTML, and XML. However, it normally saves files in the open-standard Oasis OpenDocument XML format, for maximum compatibility with other applications. is a compelling option for anyone in search of an alternative office suite.


Skype users received an early holiday present.

At least those in the USA and Canada, with a new year long pricing scheme that provides twelve months of unlimited calls from the USA and Canada to numbers in the USA and Canada for $29.95 a year if you sign up after January 31 2007 or up until December 31st, 2007 if you sign up now at the promotional rate of $14.95. For those with existing Skype Out credit, the value can be converted.

With the offer Skype comes even closer to passing the "duck test" of being a phone company. Even though they sell Skype In as one product and show the cost savings vs. the traditional carriers and VoIP suppliers and contend they are not a primary line replacement, with each move they make, they quack more and more like one in my view, and the view of some former Bell/AT&T types I know.

Internet can be one big waste of time.

Here is an amusing article that I came upon today morning.
It starts with a headline "The 15 Best Places to Waste Time on the Web".

The article appeared in pcworld.

Let me skip the formalities and get down to the actual 15 sites.
1.Celebrity gossip ranks #1 always.
Paris, Lindsay, Britney, and the whole gaggle of train-wrecks-that-just-won't-quit make for easy pickings on sites like Defamer, The Superficial, and IDontLikeYouInThatWay. All of the sites tend to carry nearly the same stories every day, but WWTDD ((adopting Fight Club's imaginary antihero persona as blogger) has the cruelest write-ups and the biggest pictures.
Their collection of card, parlor, puzzle, and casino-style diversions is a destination for hundreds of thousands browsers.

3.HOT or NOT
Hotornot is such an apt time-waster is that you can get virtually endless content delivered quickly with a single click.

Why read about TV shows online when you can actually watch them?
This is a gaming site.

6.Rotten Tomatoes
Of all the movie review roundup sites, Rotten Tomatoes has the largest variety, often featuring hundreds of links to reviews for any film.

RuneScape is inarguably the Web's most popular browser-based MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game). It features nearly 10 million members.

8.Classic '80s Arcade Games
A gaming site.

9.Microsoft Virtual Earth 3D Beta
Microsoft recently added some pretty impressive 3D capabilities to its existing Live Search Maps service.
Aggregated news arrives with a simple premise: Users submit worthwhile news stories, and the site as a whole votes on whether the story should be promoted to the home page, where it will be seen by millions.
Flickr's public photos that can really eat up the afternoon.

12.The Internet Movie Database (IMDB)
At IMDB, it's all too easy to get lost in this "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" research. When you burn out on movies, head over to The All Music Guide, which offers similar data for all things audio.
For the absolute best online oddities, strange news reports, and random links to the Internet's most absurd sites.
Is there another place where you can get a job, find an apartment, meet your future spouse, and sell your old dinette set, all on one URL.

No need for an explanation for this-right?

Do you have something to add to this list?

The New York Times unveiled a new service today that allows readers to quickly post stories that they find on the newspaper's Web site to Digg, Facebook and Newsvine.

It marks the first time that the country's third-largest newspaper has added a news-sharing tool to its Web site, allowing readers to develop conversations and post comments about specific stories.

Readers will be able to add headlines and a small portion of text to the social media sites by clicking on the logos of Digg, Facebook and Newsvine.

"It is one of the world's most established newspapers and we have a great amount of respect for them, so the prospect of helping their audience get more out of their news and helping The Times doing some of the new things that they are looking at doing is very good for us," Davidson said. "We look at it as the beginning of, perhaps, a more meaningful relationship."

How I got my page rank!

Frankly speaking I do not know even today.
Though my page rank is only 2, I got it pretty soon after launching my blog.

But how I wish I had known Ed Shull one year before. I am sure my PR would be 5 or 6 by this time had I implemented all those great tips on how to build back links given by Ed Shull, the CEO of USWeb.

He is of the opinion that the really technical ones only want to know about one thing- how to get more links to one’s site because they firmly believe that getting back links holds the key to get link popularity.

He cites a very humorous example below.

This is commonly known as Google Bombing. Try a search in Google for the term “miserable failure”. You’ll see the first page in the results is the presidential bio for George W. Bush. Obviously he has not put that term on his personal bio. The reason behind this ranking is actually quite simple and humorous. At some point a blogger decided to link to this page with that term as the anchor text of the link, and told others to do the same. So this ranking is a result of thousands of blogs pointing back to this page with that term as the anchor text.

Please read first the list of what not to do:

1. Do not buy links from any program that offers you thousands of links to your website for a fee.

2. Do not participate in a reciprocal link program where you email Spam people asking them to swap links with you.

3. Do not use link brokers who put your link in the footer or off to the side of sites. Google has a policy in place for webmasters to understand how to not get their site penalized by these links by using a nofollow tag.

Google then determines through various filters what subject (or search term) this web page is an authority. Understanding those filters is a big part and I feel you must go through the entire article written by Ed.
