Upload file already online to your server


Cool Windows Hack to Upload A File From Someone Else’s Server to Yours –courtesy of LifeHacker

When You want to Upload a file that You find on say Flickr and want to put it into your blog or website and want to do it quickly without having to first download it to your PC and then upload it to your webspace through the upload dialogue box from the place on your computer where you downloaded to.

This little “Trick” will save some time when time is of the essence;

When you know where the file is located “Online” and you are sure that it is within the Terms of Copyrights, save the address of the file and then while the address is still in your clipboard or copied to a notepad file or similar – go to the upload page where you want to make the file part of your files on your server and click “Upload File”.

When you are presented with the dialogue box to find the file on your PC all you need to do is paste in or type the address of the file on the website where you found it. Then it will transfer the a copy of that file from the server where it is originally located to your server, using your PC as the “Go-Between”, how cool is that?!

I have not had the chance to ask anyone with a Mac or a Linux user if the same trick will work for them, but would love to have someone verify that for me. So, if you are a Mac or Linux user and care to give it a shot and let us PC users know if it is universal as far as OS goes, I’d love to hear from you!

3 simple steps to install WordPress

Would you like to have your very own profitable blog? How about a blog that only takes 3 simple steps to install, requires No Technical Knowledge and once you done with your clicks – fully configured and customized!?

I’m going to show you how to get this set-up in a very short time frame using an installer made for you that is even easier than using the cpanel install method on most servers.   Do you have 4 minutes to install a fully customized and Web 2.0 enabled WordPress blog? If the answer is yes and you especially don’t want to pay someone to do it for you then keep reading…

I was a bit skeptical myself until I had a chance to try it out personally. It is really a no-sweat process of uploading one file, editing one file and then filling a few blanks on a web form and choosing What Niche you would like to Dominate! But don’t be put off by what may end up sounding a little hyped, it just appears that way on the surface and when you see for yourself when you watch the short video below, it really is that easy!

Get Your Free Installer Here

This entire product is based on the  knowledge and experience of a very successful blogger who is been holding almost the entire first page of Google results for his chosen (and very competitive) keywords for over a year!
All his knowledge and experience were turned into complete Video Tutorials where he guides you step-by-step and makes it a complete no-brainer to install, even if you never created a single page on the Internet!
Add to the fact that a custom script does the full blog configuration and customization based on a few answers you provide on web page and you got a clear winner. You will see in the video how easy it is to create your own database for the blog, even if have NEVER done it before, simple!

But you really must watch the video above that shows you the entire process to understand just how simple it is, I suggest you do it now and make taking action a quality you keep using over and over. Get Your Free Installer Here

Donâ€t forget this one important thing – it is very affordable. I was floored when I saw the upgrade price and my finger was clicking that order button before I even knew it!
And here is the catch (I MUST share it with you, itâ€s that important) – on your first login ONLY you will be provided with an option to upgrade. Please, do not blindly click “no thanks” as it is truly the only time you will see this incredible deal. This step is Totally your choice, but by upgrading you will gain many extras.

If by chance you don’t yet have a host for a website, then there are loads of choices out there to choose from and if you have no experience of website hosting then you may be tempted to go down the route of the FREE HOSTS, and you are again provided with loads of choice here. There is one Major Problem with Free Hosts and that is I have not found one that offers free databases with the hosting. You will need to use a database to set-up any WordPress blog.

I will not go into the debate of which host is better than the others, only to say that the one I use is better than any other I have EVER used and this is the fourth host I have used since starting online in 1998. That said, Hosting 24.com have Always answered every single support question that I have had within minutes of my asking and not just to say “Hi, we got your request for support…”, but actually had some concrete action to take to resolve my problem or query! You can even get a great discount by using my special Coupon Code: 7thDwarf when you sign-up!

The people at Expert WordPress suggest using Hostgator and you can as I said before choose which host you like, but I cannot give you a review of them personally.

So, if you have been bitten by the Blog Bug and you can see how easy and fast you can be up and running, just download the Expert WordPress Installer then watch the video again to be able to follow along while you go through the set-up, stopping at each step and maybe rewinding to make sure you’ve done it right (like me!) and before you know it You’re Done!

Stock.XCHNG – Now Better?

Stock.XCHNG is under new management!
Getty Images has taken over this ‘Great Free Photo’ site

They are committed to making all the files in the SXC collection safe and reliable and the technology team behind iStockphoto, the world’s number one microstock site, will keep SXC fast, stable and secure. In fact, they’ve upgraded much of the hardware recently, and done a full security audit.

Here’s some of stats for the site:

  • 394569 photos online
  • 1788 pending
  • 37 added today

More than 30.000 photographers are adding photos regularly to the site.

Need a wallpaper for your desktop or illustration for your blog? Need a pic for your commercial website design? Looking for inspiration? All Free of charge!

SXC is a helpful, friendly community of photography addicts who generously offer their works to those who need them free of charge. If you have some nice photos that you’d like to share with others, it cost nothing to join today! It not only feels great to share, you will also get a huge exposure for your work, and you may just get some work if that is what you’re looking for.

I have been a member since 2005 and every time I need a graphic – this is where I head to first, I have also saved the RSS feed to my feed reader and see what new images are added daily.

So, if you need to find some useful photos/images for a project and you are on a budget or just need to find something fast, you could do it on Stock.XCHNG, my favorite image repository.

Whether SXC will become better from the merger with Getty Images is probably a given, because of the huge clout that Getty possess, I have mentioned some of the initial changes and they look as if they are starting to add more options soon, so as long as they don’t want to make people pay for access or something unheard of like that, I will commit to a resolute Yes!

Find out for yourself, you’ll see.
