We Said Goodbye a Thousand Times

 

Don’t be sad about my parting

Don’t feel like you never said goodbye

For you and I both know deep in our hearts

That We Said Goodbye a Thousand Times

And shared so much love and joy every day

 

Be happy that I am now at peace

Be joyful that I have lived a wonderful life

Be happy that we have shared so much together

 

And remember I am always with you in a thought and a sigh

Every day when you see the beauty in nature think of me

Every day when you see the colorful flowers think of me

Every day when you see a frisky animal prancing around think of me

Every day when you look into the eyes of someone you love think of me

 

And know beyond a doubt that I am with you in everything you do

And know beyond a doubt that I am with you in everything you say

And know beyond a doubt that I am with you in every quiet moment of your life

 

Don’t be sad about my parting

Don’t feel like you never said goodbye

For you and I both know deep in our hearts

That We Said Goodbye a Thousand Times

And shared so much love and joy every day

My blogging motivations

1. Sum up your blogging motivation, philosophy and experience in exactly 10 words:

I am addicted to writing prose and poetry ergo blog.

2. Pass it on to 10 others.

3. If you read this and are blogging and have not yet done this, consider yourself tagged.

Some slideshare.net presentations I really liked.

A tutorial on SEO and SEM-

Carole Ann Matignon deals with optimization and scheduling, rules in the…….NFL!

 

 

Carole, We are waiting for the sequel on  analytics on football and the beer game.

Social Media Screw-Ups

Social Media doesnt matter at all- Social Media matters a lot- Still undecided? Take a look

Slideshare is a great VISUAL interface on sharing content. I liked Google Docs embedding as well, but Matt Mullenberg and Matt Cutts seemed to have stopped talking. Mullenberg is going like Zuckenberg, not willing to align with Sergey Mikhaylovich Brin. or maybe they are afraid of Big Brother Brin. Google loves Java and Javascript (even when they are getting sued for it)- while Matt M  hates it- bad for RIA I guess.

Scribd also is a great way to share content- and probably is small enough for. WordPress.com to allow embedding

Thats the reason why I sometimes prefer Scribd for sharing my poetry to Slideshare and Google Docs. Also I like the enhanced analytics and the much easier and evolved interface for reading. Slideshare is much more successful than Scribd because it is open to sharing with everyone- scribd tries to get you to register …;)

Creating an Anonymous Bot

or Surfing the Net Anonmously and Having some Fun.

On the weekend, while browsing through http://freelancer.com I came across an intriguing offer-

http://www.freelancer.com/projects/by-job/YouTube.html

Basically projects asking for increasing Youtube Views-

Hmm.Hmm.Hmm

So this is one way I though it could be done-

1) Create an IP Address Anonymizer

Thats pretty simple- I used the Tor Project at http://www.torproject.org/easy-download.html.en

Basically it uses a peer to peer network to  connect to the internet and you can reset the connection as you want-so it hides your IP address.

Also useful for sending hatemail- limitation uses Firefox browser only.And also your webpage default keeps changing languages as the ip address changes.

Note-

The Tor Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit based in the United States. The official address of the organization is:

The Tor Project
969 Main Street, Suite 206
Walpole, MA 02081 USA
Check your IP address at http://www.whatismyip.com/

2) Creating a Bot or an automatic clicking code ( without knowing code)

Go to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3863/

Remember when you could create an Excel Macro by just recording the Macro (in Excel 2003)

So while surfing if you need to do something again and again (like go the same Youtube video and clicking Like 5000 times) you can press record Macro

  • Do the action you want repeated again and again.
  • Click save Macro
  • Now run the Macro in a loop using the iMacro extension.

see screenshot below-

Note I have added two lines of code -WAIT SECONDS= 6

This means everytime the code runs in a loop it will wait for 6 seconds and then reload.

However I recommend you create a random number of wait seconds using Google Spreadsheet and the function RANDBETWEEN(5,400) (to limit between 5 and 400 seconds) and also use CONCATENATE with click and drag to create RANDOM wait times (instead of typing it say 500 times yourself)

see https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=tr18JVEE2TmAuH5V8fzJLRA#gid=0

That’s it – Your Anonymous Bot is ready.

See the  analytical results for my personal favourite Streaming Poetry video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5yReaKRHOM

Easy isn’t it. Lines of code written= 0 , Number of Views =335 (before I grew bored)

Note- Officially it is against Youtube Terms http://www.youtube.com/t/terms to  use scripts or Bots so I did it for Research Purposes only. And the http://Freelancer.com needs to look into the activities underway at http://www.freelancer.com/projects/by-job/YouTube.html and also http://www.freelancer.com/projects/by-job/Facebook.html and http://www.freelancer.com/projects/by-job/Social-Networking.html
