Bloggerwave – Another review ads system

Update: Bloggerwave is shutdown already.
I’d like to introduce this new site, Bloggerwave, with a reviewme like Ads system.
I sign up on last weekend and submit this Blog as participate blog. It took about 3 days to get approval. So, this is the first opportunity to write something for Bloggerwave
The Signup steps look simple.
1) Register an account on it.
2) Add up to 5 blogs and wait for approval
3) Take the opportunity to do the review, Buzz or Opinion, and write you own post on your selected blog.
4) Wait for approving.
For Bloggerwave, I still think the price is very low than others.
The price is just based on the topic, not based on your blog. It is not so good.
For me, I’d like to accept a price about $25 per post with 60 words or more. And I also like to doing the review by my testing or experience. I can not say positive because it pay for it.
I just do the review by my own decision.
I feel Bloggerwave can make more improvement in the back-end.
Note: This a paid review.

What about Joomla

Joomla, is a free, open source content management system written with PHP for publishing content on the world wide web and intranet, using the MySQL database.
I mentioned it in my SEO Website Marketing (Chinese) Blog, in Best CMS in 2006.
Joomla! includes features such as page caching to improve performance, RSS feeds, printable versions of pages, news flashes, blogs, polls, website searching, and language internationalization.
The name is an English spelling of the Swahili word jumla meaning “all together” or “as a whole”.
So cool, the target of this project is All Together, put everything you need in to one application.
Please look at the roadmap of Joomla.
There will be a brandnew version 1.5, a completely re-written code base built with PHP 5.
I am strongly recommend Joomla to the CMS user. I like it.

Binary Clock with Red Lights

Do you know this Clock?
POWER2-CLOCK-RED-unit
Even I know it is a clock, I can not read it.
It is a Binary Clock. So cool.

Tell time in hi-tech style with this incredible Powers of 2 BCD Clock! It uses the binary code (the language of computers) to indicate the time. After a few minutes of practice, you’ll be able to tell the time by simply adding the values of the red lights in each column. This compact unit is not a typical light show, it’s actually a working clock!

Here is a guide tells you how to read a Binary clock.

Image Viewer from FastStone

I have a very long history to use the image viewer software. I still remember my first PC. It is 386DX40 with 4Mb memory, and 170Mb hard-disk. The monitor is 14″.
Just like other teenage boys, I use ACDSee for lots and lots of photos copied from my classmates.
It is running on DOS. Even when I have a Windows 3.11 on my computer, I always reboot to DOS to watch images. It is very fast and easy to control.
I have not found any software which can let have the same experience as ACDSee 2.4. I use ACDSee Pro 8.0 now. I don’t like it. It is changed to bigger and slower.
Let’s see the file size of ACDSee in its version history:
ACDSee 1.0 for Windows 95 (0.5 MB)
ACDSee 2.1 (0.6 MB)
ACDSee 2.22 (0.9 MB)
ACDSee 2.4 (1.9 MB)
ACDSee 2.42 (1.9 MB)
ACDSee 2.43 (1.6 MB)
ACDSee 2.45 (German) (2.0 MB)
ACDSee 3.0 (3.9 MB)
ACDSee 3.10 (5.7 MB)
ACDSee 4.01 (11.4 MB)
ACDSee 4.02 (10.8 MB)
ACDSee 5.0.1 (11.1 MB)
ACDSee 7.0 (14.8 MB)
ACDSee 8.0 (12.1 MB)
ACDSee 8.1 (24.2 MB)
I like slim software and freeware.
Until now, I saw FastStone, it is a Freeware.
There are three products I’d like to introduce to my Blog readers.
FastStone Image Viewer 2.8

A fast, stable, user-friendly image browser, converter and editor. It has a nice array of features that include image viewing, management, comparison, red-eye removal, emailing, resizing, cropping and color adjustments. Its innovative but intuitive full-screen mode provides quick access to EXIF information, thumbnail browser and major functionalities via hidden toolbars that pop up when your mouse touch the four edges of the screen. Other features include a high quality magnifier and a musical slideshow with 150+ transitional effects, as well as lossless JPEG transitions, drop shadow effects, image annotation, scanner support, histogram and much more.

ReviewMe – supplemental income to blog

ReviewMe is a good way to get more income to cover your cost of your server or internet access expense.
If you have a blog over 2 years, and continue to post, you may know much about how to earn money from online advertisement, such as Google AdSense, Yahoo Publisher Network, etc. They are contextual ads. Sometimes the personal blog is not topic focus enough. The performance of ads is not good.
Some bloggers are bought to post an article to promote some products without disclosure. Readers will treat it as a real review, but not an advertisement. It’s cheating.
ReviewMe is a new service for blogger. It is very fair to bloggers and blog readers.
