Online Audio Cutter

September 26th, 2012 Comments off

Ever need to edit MP3s? My son sings old Elvis music and I find myself needing to modify songs sometimes by chopping off the long pause at the beginning or shortening them to fit in a certain time frame during a play or something. I’ve used Audacity in the past and it works great but I didn’t have it loaded on my machine recently and found this website that did the trick in record time! No software needed… Check out MP3Cut.net if you ever need to shorten Suspicious Minds like I did!

Outlook.com

July 31st, 2012 Comments off

Can’t say I’ve used Hotmail in years or even thought about it but I noticed today that Outlook.com replaced it. I guess if I hadn’t been using Gmail for years now, I might think about using it since it looks like they are trying to get everybody used to the whole METRO style! Check it out at Outlook.com

October 29th, 2011 Comments off

So after busting a child porn ring, Anonymous sends an injured Marine a ‘get well’ video. What do you really think about Anonymous? Are they good guys or bad guys? I still suppose it could be argues both ways but they are very interesting to follow regardless.

Stop Slouching

July 20th, 2011 Comments off

I’ve never heard some of this but it’s an interesting article if you sit at a desk most of the day like I do. Quote from the article, “Every inch you hold your head forward, you add 10 pounds of pressure on your spine.” That’s pretty amazing to me and would certainly explain the back pain! Worth reading the whole article.

July 19th, 2011 Comments off

This is a good sign but still not enough for me to stop using Chrome or even using Firefox next.

Internet Explorer 9 security surpasses rivals in blocking social engineering attacks.
