I’ve found out dnScoop.com and it’s quite fun to check how much your domain or favourite domain worth. How they value a domain? Here is their explanation:
dnScoop.com attempts to estimate a value for an established website or a domain name by using factors such as:
* Links pointing to the domain
* Popularity of the domain
* Age of the domain
* Pagerank of the domain
* Traffic to the domain
* and more…
We believe that these factors are a good indicator of a site’s value and earning potential. We don’t claim that the tool is 100% accurate, but we are constantly working to improve accuracy.
I have made a search for problogger.net, it show that it is worth $234,350.
Btn is now worth only $70. Let’s see what’s the value at the end of this year . Check for your domain now. It is really fun!
If you’re itching to download a torrent at school or work, where you are not authorized to install any software, you can use this web-based java bit torrent client. This is so cool if you just want to download only one torrent at a time. All you need is Java Virtual Machine.
Here is the snapshot of Bitlet download in progress.
Quote from torrentfreak : It’s not a replacement for the regular BitTorrent client, but it sure is a great addition.

I’ve found the program called “Speedbit Video Accelator“. It supports the following video networks:
How it’s works?
With SpeedBit Video Accelerator installed, your browser’s connection to specific streaming video server is being rerouted through the Video Accelerator Daemon. Unlike the normal browser connection, the Daemon uses a unique patent pending technology, that substitutes the single connection with a sophisticated multi-connection algorithm. The end result is an (up to) 5 times faster connection, which handles the cache buffering (the “preloading” of the movie) much more efficiently.
BtN’s Tips : Even though they don’t disclose their technology, I’ve observed that this program makes several connection to the video that you’re playing. For my case, without this program, I can see only three connections to dailymotion, but after using this program, it makes 8 connections. By this way, it accelerates the video. So, if your connection is dialup, using this program won’t make any difference.
If you have Microsoft Zune player and ever wanted to play your purchased music on any other players, here is the solution.
FairUse4WM – a WM/DRM removal program
Here is brief summary of this program could do.
… a new tool for uncovering the individual keys from Microsoft’s DRM blackbox components (“IBX”), up to version 11.0.6000.6324. Lacking the source code to the extant programs
….This version should be capable of interfacing with both Windows Vista and Zune software versions.
Have fun and Enjoy your music!
Newer isn’t always better. If you prefer some functions of your old version software and found that official web sites only had the latest version of the software up for download, don’t sigh yet.
There is OldVersion.com and OldApps.com for you. Both these sites have a huge collection of previous releases of most famous applications.
Warnings: If you use older versions, you may expose yourself to security risks that’ve already been fixed in newer versions.
