Online Media Converter
Don't remember how or why, but I came across a really great thing the other day - the online media converter. It is completely free, you do not need to install anything and you do not even have to register. Your converted files (maximum size is 150 Mb) are kept for download 24 hours. Fast, free and fun...
I had a look at it and actually used it to do some convertions already, the number of supported formats and media types is impressive. On one side you have the file convertion - images, documents, archive, movie/video and sound - but you also have the option to create sounds (perfect when creating your own ring signal etc) with the midi sequencer.
This is taken from the site (I can find better reasons though):
:: Why use Media-Convert?
* No software installation, Media-Convert let you read all kind of documents.
* Convert files, for example:
to read all Open Office files with Microsoft Office
or convert files into universal formats like Adobe PDF, PS (PostScript) or CSV to
print, fax ou simply read them on any computer, without special software.
* Insert a PDF into your web page by converting it into an SWF Flash file.
* Export easily Microsoft Access database to an Excel table.
* Capture a website as an image.
* Encode a text with UTF-8 codes or with one of 900 other charsets.
* Learn morse code with the text to morse converter ;-)

Should I be scared..?
Just had a look to my statistics the other night and discovered something cool. Or should I be scared?
Someone (the name is the only thing I don’t have) in a military organisation read a post on June 1st this year at 17:15:38 (CET), namely the one about JFCCNW.
This organization, of which it’s domain was registered by verio.com (on 1998-03-27 and updated on 2006-04-11.), is no other then UNITED STATES TRANSPORTATION COMMAND !!!
I wonder if there is sitting someone there searching internet, checking what might be a threat. Can not be something serious since then I am sure it wouldn’t be so easy to track them. Or..?
“Hey boss, I found something interesting on the internet when doing my morning search. It’s this person called The Lone Codeman. Sounds suspicious to me... I’ll head over to the code cracking guys at X4-10 to look into possible suspects, then let them follow up and hand it over to the profiler guys.”

Why, for example, should a group of simple, stable compounds of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen struggle for billions of years to organise themselves into a professor of chemistry? What's the motive?
