Why It's More Funny In The Philippines?

Image
Hmm, I can't quite explain myself. There's this thought in my head but my mouth can't clearly spell it out, haha. If not for the stupid politicians, the Philippines could have already realized its potential by now. Despite the setbacks, the country is inherently beautiful. Recently, the government has been very aggressive in promoting the country as a premier tourism destination. The country is just a natural beauty, blessed with so many attractions. But its not the places alone, its the people and their unrivaled hospitality that makes the Philippines a unique destination. The video below has a more vibrant music and more dynamic presentation.

Best Free Cloud Storage And Managers

When it comes to clouds, I usually consider the storage size, file size and bandwidth limitations above than anything else. Of course, it must be free, haha. I believe that bigger is better and unlimited is the best. However, competition in this segment is stiff and free unlimited services are hard to come by. Still, there are quite a few providers that offer huge storage space at zero cost. OpenDrive gives 5GB cloud storage on their free account. But one advantage of their free offer is the hotlinking of files in their Public folder, useful when integrating external files in websites. Syncplicity promises you content access on any device. Their free plan includes a big 10GB space on top of unlimited file size syncing on an unlimited number of devices.

Best Free Torrent Clients And Sites

BitTorrents aka “torrents” work by downloading small bits of files from many web sources at the same time. Since it is easy and free to use, it became the most popular form of peer to peer(P2P) file sharing. To start downloading software, music, movies, and digital books all you need is a torrent file and the client software. A torrent file is a computer file with .torrent extension. It does not contain the actual content to be distributed, but rather a metadata holding various information, such as files and folders to be distributed, and also a list of the network locations of trackers, which are computers that help participants in the system find each other and form efficient distribution groups called swarms. These files are downloaded from torrent sites. There are a lot of excellent sources such as KickAssTorrents (KAT), 337x and  YTS with fewer ads and easy to navigate design.

Images are an indispensable component of a website. It is one reason why people visit sites or click on a link. As a Web Designer, it is important to have a good source of free but high-quality images. Stock images or photos are professional photographs of common places, landmarks, nature, events or people that anyone can license for creative use. There are three main types of stock photos, each with different licensing rules. First is royalty-free, here the pictures can be used multiple times once a license is purchased, with no time limit on usage. Photographers earn via royalty payments. But, there is a limit to how many times an image is used. This is called a “print run” and is indicated in the license. In the case of rights managed license, there is usage exclusivity. Meaning, no other entity can use the image for competitive reasons. Lastly, a public domain image is free to use for any purpose, personal or commercial, without purchasing a license.
