If someone sent you an image URL from Facebook, or image file saved directly from Facebook, you can actually get the uploader’s profile ID from the image file name/URL. This post will tell you how to get the uploader profile of a picture from Facebook.
So, back to the basic, every Facebook profile has a unique profile ID. If you look at a Facebook profile URL, http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=n, n is where the unique profile ID for a Facebook profile is located. The unique profile ID is actually embedded in the file name and URL when a user uploads a picture to Facebook.
For example, let’s take a look at this picture URL from a Facebook profile.
As you can see, the filename for the picture is “24713_413931002118_604502118_5121698_1325306_n.jpg”.
The 3rd number from left in the filename (in this case, 604502118) is actually the unique profile ID of the uploader.
So, the Facebook profile URL for the picture uploader is http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=604502118.

Thank you kulll for letting me use his Facebook profile in the example

Quick tip. Sometimes, you might want to capture and save entire web page as an image file. Normally, if you take a screenshot using the ‘Print Screen’ key, you can only capture what is displayed on your screen. If you are a Google Chrome user, you are lucky because there is a helpful extension available to help you to save entire web page as an image.
Webpage Screenshot, an extension for Google Chrome, will let you save a web page as image. The extension will save a long web page as a single image. Because the extension ran on the browser itself, you can actually save a web page that requires you to log on.

For most average computer users, the most passive mouse button is usually the middle one. The middle button is usually used to scroll documents or web pages, and almost for nothing else. In case you are wondering if you can put the middle mouse button to a good use, you might want to try MouseExtender.
MouseExtender is a small program that ran on the system tray and it will display a nice menu that contains shortcuts to file, program, folder and URL by clicking the middle mouse button. You can group shortcuts which belong in same category using tabs.
By default, MouseExtender will override other programs’ function that uses the middle mouse button. For example, clicking the middle button on webpage in a web browser will gives you the ability to scroll the webpage using the cursor, and when you’re running MouseExtender, it will bypass this function and displays shortcuts. However, MouseExtender allows you to exclude programs from displaying the shortcuts and let the program uses its default middle click function.

In my previous post, I wrote about alternative bittorrent clients that are able to get good download speed on TMNet Streamyx. 2 of the clients are based on libtorrent, a C++ bittorrent library. While Linux/Unix users have many choices of bittorrent clients based on libtorrent, there are not much choices for Windows users. On 6th July 2010, the qBittorrent developers announced the availability of the first Windows installer for qBittorrent. With the developers hard work, qBittorrent is now available on all major operating system. If you are looking for an alternative bittorrent client for Windows, you might want to try qBittorrent.
qBittorrent is an open source bittorent client based on libtorrent library and Qt framework. The development was started on March 2008. Previously, qBittorrent is only available for Linux/Unix operating system only.

Since I don’t do much video encoding for mobile devices, I have to admit that I am comfortable to use a simple video encoding tool that just works to do the job easily without much hassle. If you are looking for an all in one video/audio converter software, especially to encode video for mobile devices playback, XMedia Recode might be the software for you.
Basically, XMedia Recode is a GUI for FFmpeg, an open source complete, cross-platform solution to record, convert and stream audio and video. XMedia Recode can encode and decode major video/audio containers and codecs such as 3GP, 3GPP, 3GPP2, AAC, AC3, AMR, ASF, AVI, FLAC, FLV,H.261, H.263, H.264, M4A, M1V, M2V, M4V, Matroska(MKV), MMF, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, TS, TRP, MP2, MP3, MP4, MP4V, MOV,QT, OGG, PSP, SWF, VOB, WAV, WMA and WMV. XMedia Recode can also use unprotected DVD as the video source.
What makes XMedia Recode really great to encode video for mobile devices is the built in presets setting, and there are a lot of them. As for version 126.96.36.199, there are more than 530 built in presets.

I’m pretty sure some of us are actually get annoyed with Flash animations. While Firefox and Chrome have their own FlashBlock extensions, Opera Browser users don’t have the option to install extensions to the browser. However, in Opera Browser, you can actually block Flash (and other plugin) by enabling the ‘on demand plugin’ option. While this is not as inconvenience as using the FlashBlock extension where you get the extra functionalities such as the option to whilelist a site, this is better than nothing for Opera Browser users.
How to Enable On Demand Plugin in Opera Browser
2. Make sure you also enable the ‘Enable On Demand Plugin Placeholder’ (2) option so you can easily see if a webpage contains any plugin.
