Making Youtube Videos Smaller

I think that almost everyone on the Internet from time to time has the chance to see a Youtube video that is embedded somewhere on a webpage. Personally, I embedded quite a lot of videos and some of them very educational, some were a commentary, while some were simply for fun. The problem of Youtube videos is that the default size is often too large. If you want to embed some Youtube videos, then let me teach you a trick which will allow you to reduce the size of them. To do that, let us look at a Youtube embed code of one of Youtube videos:
“src=”” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” wmode=”transparent” height=”355? width=”425?>”

All you have to do is change the width=”425? and height=”355? parameters to your liking. Enjoy!

Internet Gaining on Popularity

I stumbled upon an informative website that offers data pertaining to internet users all around the world. Basically it estimates how many users are on each continent among other things. Analyzing the data lead to some interesting discoveries. Speaking from experience I an say that there is a common misconception among Americans that they constitute the majority of Internet users and that North America has the most Internet users. This was probably true many years ago, but during the last decade (2000-2008) the number of internet users in Africa, Asia and Europe grew 882%, 346% and 231% respectively. On the other hand, the number of Internet users in North America grew by 120%. Other continents are catching up to North America and actually Asia and Europe already have more Internet users then North America has. Of course, another factor is how many hours per day a person is using the Internet.

While we might have heard about exoskeletons from science-fiction movies, the truth is that there is a lot more science behind it than fiction. There are already some exoskeletons on the market that can help you carry up to 100kg, and they are supposed to be quite comfortable to wear. There can be many uses for such type of product, and this includes the military. Generally, it can be used by anyone who lifts heavy objects at work. It is also stated that you will even consume less oxygen wearing this exoskeleton, as you will not be getting tired that easily. It will be interesting to see whether such devices will become popular in the upcoming years.

Create your Own Games

Creating Games is often associated with professional programmers who were studying for many years in order to be able to do make games. While this might be true in the majority of the cases, there are some programs that can help amateurs to create their own games. An example of such program is RPG maker which is a software that is quite easy to use and has the capability to create similar games to Final Fantasy V or VI. While it is true that these games might seem currently outdated, I still think that it is a great opportunity to create games for those people who would prefer not only to play, but would also like to develop games. Most of such people would lack the time or resources to pursue this activity on a larger scale.

Dangerous Web Domains

When surfing the Internet we may not realize that there are a lot of dangers out there. This includes dangerous websites, which can harm your computer in different ways. Such websites can violate your privacy, spy on you, damage your operating system, or even erase some important data. They can also slow down your computer’s Internet connection in case of Trojans or other malware. However, there are ways to avoid dangerous websites, as the latest reports identify .hk”, “.cn” and “.info” domains to be the most dangerous. That does not mean you cannot visit them at all, but around 15% of those sites are dangerous. Naturally, the best protection is to use a high quality antivirus and firewall.
