My cat purrs. It's an amazing thing when one thinks about it. Not the physical act of purring, but it's the timing and intent. It does not matter that you had a shitty day and not give a shit at all to him when you come back, he (or better she in my case) will come and show you some love. It does not matter that it's raining for three days, that you stomp a paw by mistake or you forget to feed it and stay without food for half a day. He will always come to see you when you come home, jump on your knees and show all his unconditional love.
So I say, my cat, should be taken as an example. By everyone. I see it every day on the street, people walking pulling a long face, like they had their dog shotted. If you stops someone to ask him something, his first instinct is to take a step back. Maybe I'm the one to cause this to happened with my 1,92m. It is true that looking around, almost all of them are "differently tall" compared to me. But just the other day, I was ten cents short to take the subway (I had to recover the car from the mechanic)...
Practically it is a page which lists all direct links to eliminate its inscription to websites. By clicking the link chosen, you will be taken directly to the page to delete your account. Every single link is indicated by a color : green, yellow, red or black. Green : deletion of your account is easy, simple process. Yellow : deletion of your account is medium, some extra steps involved. Red : deletion of your account is hard, cannot be fully deleted without contacting customer-services. Black : deleting your account is impossible, cannot be deleted.
Very useful. It has, also, a fake identity generator. To quickly generate false identity for registration to sites, without compromising the real one. It may come in handy.
Reborn after being at the frontier of death (see article below), Winamp is alive again! Rumors spoke of contact with Microsoft interested in buying the package winamp + shoutcast, information immediately denied by Microsoft itself. The real, new owner of this package is Radionomy.
Adding Shoutcast to existing Radionomy activities will make the company one of the largest players in the streaming radio business, which hosts about 60,000 radio stations, or about half of online radio stations on the market today. Meanwhile, Radionomy intends to offer Winamp’s media player just as it is today — with access to those 60,000 stations, but also playback ability for 60 audio and video formats; 6,000 add-ons like skins and plug-ins; and availability in 16 languages.
The Winamp website is undergoing complete transformation, and a new version of the software should be released soon. Welcome back Winamp !
After 15 years of meritorious success, Winamp will close its doors on December 20th. A decision that I was afraid to come since Nullsoft was bought by AOL. A final version was released just in time for this announcement. The version 5.666 of Winamp is now available on the official website to download so hurry because after December 20th it will no longer be available. We don't actually know which web services will find themselves with the power plug disconnected but I fear that access to Gracenote (renaming mp3 tags) and streaming radio (SHOUTcast) days are numbered.
A pity, this software is a piece of history for many and a petition was created to demand AOL to maintain this project alive or at least, make it open-source. The latter solution would be ideal. We'll see if AOL will respond to users.
In the meantime, on the official forum, one of the official developers (known on the forum as DrO) has said that he will do everything to keep development going on, so keep an eye on his site to see if it succeeds.
Let's hope so.
Update : It seems that Microsoft is interested in buying Winamp and all it's services. In fact, the Redmond's giant would be very interested in the SHOUTcast streaming radio service. Let's see what happens. Update 2 : Someone reported me that there is a site to preserve the legacy of Winamp, where you can continue to download the installer even after the official site's closure. So, you will find Winamp always available on winamp.en.botbi.com .
Shumway is a Firefox extension developed by Mozilla, and is a technological experiment in HTML5 that in practice, wants to make playing SWF file (Flash) directly in the browser without the assistance of native code.
In other words, this extension allows us to play Flash movies and games without needing to install the plug -in from Adobe. This is a good thing because before you delete this plug-in , the better. In the future, integration with Firefox is a possibility if the experiment will be successful.
In parole povere, questa estensione ci permette di riprodurre filmati e giochi Flash senza avere bisogno di installare il plug-in di Adobe. Questo è una bella cosa perché prima si elimina questo plug-in e meglio è. In futuro, l'integrazione con Firefox è una possibilità se l'esperimento avrà successo.
If you want to try, this is the address to install :
