Five good websites (oct 19 2006)
This is a very cool site and takes blogging to the next blogging. It is a camera phone moblog community. Here you can send images from videos camera phone, upload videos and images from your desktop or digi cam. NO mms or email needed.
The site has a free registration as well as basic and premium memberships for 24.99 dollar and 99.99 dollar per year.Free membership includes one moblog and upto 50 images or videos. So that is good enough to at least get a taste of what is in store. Once u register you get an url and there you have your moblog space in the net. SO when you register take care to choose a good username. It is check it out folks.
Now this is a site that I really dig. Information and advice for free on almost all the topic under the sun right from money matters to internet to health. What else can u ask for? There are some really good experts working as guides writing articles on various aspects. This site is owned by the newyork times company and hence they deliver the proffessinalism you expect from them. You can choose your topic from the left hand menu or just do a search on the site. Once a guide interests you be sure to click on the guides link to take you to the page which has all the articles written by the guide. Also if you think you can be a guide you can click on the "be a guide" link right at the bottom. Also they have some regular job openings too at
the "work at about" link.
There have been many times I look for a site or a particular article and realise that the link has become extinct and the article no longer exists. So this site has come to my rescue many a times. If you have the url to the link or site you been looking for just paste it into the search bar and hit "take me back" and there you go. And if you want to check out all the links available from the same site you wish to check just put the domain address or link in the search bar followed by /* for example(*) or if you are looking for a particular address within a site like* (don't type just giving an example) and that would bring up all the links related to that particular url. you can just change that in the url address bar of ur browser too instead of changing it in the search box each time. They have an advanced search feature too. You will also find archives of moving images and all. So get going folks and check out how the net was a few years back. Or how your page looked some time back.
Lots of pics and videos to keep you entertained for a while. But mind you even though most of the videos are funny some of the videos categorized as funny was not..instead some of them were painful to watch. Like the kick boxer's ankle getting broken like a splinter when he kicked his opponent *ouch*. But most of them are very funny and loads of funny pix too.
I used to play on iksketch even while I used to frequent Yahoo graffiti. Isketch offers you a different kind of sketching game experience with so many tools at your disposal and different types of rules to choose from. It is different from yahoo graffiti in many ways like once the player finds the word it is hidden from others and other players have to guess it in 20 secs and there are many variations. A good place to get some time and meet some non yahoo players. There are advance levels too.
