I've always had problems knowing where a timezone was at and calculating when an auction was going to end on eBay.
After reviewing a lot of Firefox eBay extensions, myTimeZone is definitely spot on and should be a welcome extension for the avid eBay-er.
You could consider this a small business technology effort on the sellers part. It just amazes me the amount of detail and time some people put into certain tasks to make a profit.
With Halo gone gold this week, I'm sure a lot of kids will be looking for a Halo costume for Halloween just to get into the spirit of things. However, this Halo costume is a bit extreme.
Hurry, it ends tonight at 10:30pm EST! Get your bid in! :-)
Every blogger is always looking for some free traffic and BlogRush is a great idea that is a breakthrough and will show how much traffic can be generated through knowing someone.
The BlogRush site appeared through Shoemoney's website, Problogger.net, and many others. I'm getting it third-party it seems.
The idea behind BlogRush is that you post a widget on your blog that pertains to a particular category. BlogRush's script analyzes the page and posts additional content from other web sites into the widget. For example, my site is geared towards Technology and Small Business/Freelancing. I've decided to pick the technology category for now.
This is absolutely great news for Dojo users.
Everyone has been asking "Where's the grid widget?" since Dojo 0.9 was first released (I was one of them). That question has been answered through a press release declaring that the TurboGrid will be released in the 1.0 version of Dojo.
One question I had answered was is it going to be the professional version or the free version? And then I came across this blog post where the press release was posted as well.
Social networks like Digg, Facebook, and del.icio.us have been around for a long time and they aren't going anywhere since a community is what these sites provide.
Everyone has one or more social media sites that they visit often. Each one has their own community and provide the ability to submit news, articles, and bookmarks for the world to see. If you see an article or news worthy item on the Internet, submit the URL with a news abstract and see if you become popular immediately. It's a great way to boost your own site if you offer quality content.
Everyone is looking for the next big thing when it comes to making some serious dough.
Richard MacCanus at Read/Write Web talks about the Top 10 Future Web Trends that will be occurring in the next 10 years or so.
Personally, I've been focusing on 3-4 already.
Last year, I posted the Remembrance of 9/11 with some excellent cartoons.
Keep in mind, these are not just cartoons, but patriotic memories to remind everyone of what happened 6 years ago today.
The impact on my family has been even more traumatic when I found out my cousin (Seth) was in Baghdad and injured earlier this year from a bomb going off. The left side of his body is partially paralyzed, mostly nerve damage. I am still upset about it and he's paid the price for fighting the war on terrorism.
I've been a user of WinAmp for a long time...since version 2 I think. So when I heard of an extension that integrates music right into Firefox, I installed FoxyTunes immediately and was ready to jam (am I showing my age?)
FoxyTunes is a CD interface to control your favorite music player while you surf. The music can stream your favorite Internet radio station or load your favorite playlists. Either way, you definitely have your music handy.
A couple speed links about fonts and typography.
Looking for some software that performs like a TiVo? Linux.com has the scoop.
For those who've been following my posts on how to build a TiVo clone (part II), you'll be happy to hear that more Linux-based PVR software is becoming readily available every six months-one year.
Linux.com posts a review of three MythTV Linux distros. For those who don't know what MythTV is, it's a popular open-source PVR recording software for building your own DVR, or TiVo.
I'm currently using Ubuntu with MythTV and I'm quite content, but as time ticks by, I may install the MythBuntu version eventually.
