I vote for online applications ten to one. This is the first compress and decompress web based application I know of. It has several cool features, like collecting up to 10 files and making a compressed item of them that you can download to your drive. Or like decompressing files that reside on the Internet. Very useful!

all you can upload

Webshots, a well known photography hosting and stock photo e-store, has just launched a free virtual storage service for owned pictures. All you can upload will remain in their servers, at original size if you prefer or resized at your taste. You get the codes to paste your pictures around the world wide web, that is, forums, e-shops, conventional websites, blogs, etc. Anywhere you need to paste one or many of your pictures, allyoucanupload is your way to go. There's no bandwidth, picture size or number of pictures limit, just upload as much as you need. No registration required, but print or save the codes provided in your notepad, or you will not find your uploaded pictures anymore. If you prefer a conventional album based storage, sign up with the source website: Webshots.

record a Pandora session

The following text is copied and pasted from Tech-Recipes.com:

Pandora is an amazing music service. If you want to actually save the music to your hard drive to keep forever and forever, these steps will allow you to do it easily. Burn straight to mp3 with tags, titles, and sorting intact. Brillant!

You need firefox as well.

1. Go to pandora.com and setup an account.
2. Download and run Pandora's Jar. This forum post has the latest installations.
3. Click the Extract All Files link to uncompress the files to a directory on your computer. I use c:\pandora
4. Goto the directory that contains your downloaded files (c:\pandora)
5. Double-click on pandora.jar.
6. The file will launch and you will see something like:

Welcome to Pandoras Jar
Attempting to lauch on port 80...OK
[ready, lets grab some MP3'S!!!]

7. Visit http://localhost in firefox
8. Firefox should load with Pandoras Jar version of Pandora
9. As you listen, the mp3s will be created in a directory called mp3 in your original pandoras jar installation directory (c:\pandora\mp3)

Major props to Hak.5 for these directions. I've been following this thread for a while now. Somebody requested that these directions be condensed into one place so I posted it for everybody to enjoy.

BlinkLife is a very innovative free blog provider that gives you unlimited space (starting at 300 Gb), and special features like integrated one-way email and rss. When you sign up you are asked an email address; this is the address your messages will appear to be sent from when you use BlinkLife. When you compose a message, you can choose between public or private message. A public message can be viewed by anyone browsing your BlinkLife blog, while a private message will only be received and visible on your BlinkLife blog by your chosen recipients. BlinkLife also allows you to send pictures within your messages, uploaded from your drive or copied and pasted from any website. They appear inside the message, not as an attachment. It is a very attractive email-blog hybrid option for personal emailing among friends and family members.


ImageLog es como un Tabblo a la española, es decir, un alojador gratuito de fotografías que te permite crear "logs" o páginas que muestran un montón de fotos tuyas juntas, ocupando diferentes espacios de tamaño personalizable para cada imagen y con fondos de color también modificables. La web no ofrece información acerca de la cantidad de fotos alojable gratuitamente, ni si conserva las fotos a tamaño original. ImageLog es más bien una forma original de mostrar a otros tus fotografías. Además se pueden subir al servidor por correo electrónico y por teléfono móvil.


A new and interesting free hosting service for your pictures. At the moment Tabblo offers hosting for an unlimited number of photographs, stored @ original size. The main feature is that you can arrange your photos in "tabblos", i.e. very customizable pages with your selection of colors, fonts and texts. Tabblos are like albums but better, more creative and fun. You can share any of them with your friends, or keep them private. I see Tabblo as a very beautiful alternative to other free photo-hosting services like Bubbleshare.
