Word of the Day:
Use it in a sentence not relating to IP addresses.
Did you know there are tons of simple browser Extensions and Add-ons that are easy to use, can do wonderful tricks and help you get the most of your surfin’? Best of all, they’re FREE!
All that’s usually needed is to click on the ‘Install Now’ button next to an extension whose description sounds like it might be useful or fun. For instance, they could improve the look and functionality of Facebook (who knows, FB might be big someday), block ads (yay!) or Twitter right from your browser (“must twit!”) no matter what page you are on. Anyway, all the major browsers have Extension or Add On sources, listed below.
Try one or two out. They’re pretty cool. Note that they may have different methods for installing but they’re all pretty easy and clearly explained on each site. Have fun!
From a reliable source (no idea who tho):
There are about 4 billion IPv4 (the current system) web addresses, because the length of the addresses in binary form — 32 bits — allows for that many possible unique combinations.
IPv6 addresses (the new system) are 128 bits long, so there are many more unique sequences of numbers that can be created for them: specifically, 3.4 times 10 to the power of 38. This is also known as 340 undecillion. The word undecillion designates a number with 11 sets of three zeros, plus one more set in the numbering system used in the U.S. and many other countries. So the number is rendered as 340,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.
Most experts believe that 340 undecillion addresses is essentially an inexhaustible supply.
Heh. What do they know.
…that it’s good for your iOS devices and laptops if, once a month or so, you let them run down til they have zip (no) battery life left (after saving all your open files, of course) and then give them a full recharge? It’s true. Well, others say it’s true. I’m a guru, not an engineer. Your mileage may vary.
So, first I was going to call this MacSensei (don’t worry, I have the TM), but then I decided, Hey, there’s so much going on besides just the Mac (hollowed be thy name), so instead, I went with iSensei. Pretty cool, huh? Starts and closes with an “i”, which in this case is ME. Yeah.
Also, not to give them too much credit, but the venerated Macworld Expo has also “gone with the flow” and created a much more graceful name: Macworld/iWorld Expo. Kinda rolls right off the tongue (and into your lap, yo).
