RipMe: Download Imgur, Instagram, tumblr albums with a click

Remember the old ripArchives? Well, the site got terminated a while ago, and even though a lot of alternatives appeared, none was everlasting. But this was for the best, I guess, because a little application appeared to fill the void, RipMe. (Here’s the download link, and here’s a mirror just in case)

Disabel SourceForge Downloader

SourceForge

If you’ve used SourceForge lately, you may have noticed how all programs are now being installed using a downloader that, as all downloaders, is full of adwares. The good part is that SourceForge at least allows you to disable this.

SourceForge

And that’s it. Just remember to disable it if you’re not in your PC or if you delete your cookies.

Doubleagent, the Neutral Pandaren Shaman hits Level 90!

An old news, but awesome nonetheless. Two days ago, Doubleagent, a neutral Pandaren player of World of Warcraft hit top level, 90, without leaving the starting area.

Doubleagent

This is something incredible and actually pretty awesome to do, and a huge time waster. He spent around 4164 hours playing to achieve that, which is 173.5 days, which is 5.7 months playing the game non-stop 24/7... is still incredible.

Anyway, here’s the official post in the forum and the official reddit thread.

YouTube is now adjusting the videos to the size of your screen

A small adjustment that went unnoticed, if you click the Theater mode to make the video bigger, YouTube will automatically resize it to fit a bigger part of your screen.

YouTube

Although this is a really small change, it’s very useful and quite necessary. Also, if you have a fast Internet connection, you probably won’t notice it, but a lot of use do notice it, and because of that, thanks, YouTube.

Autoparts translation: English/Spanish

This is one of the most useful pieces of information I’ve found in the Internet so far, or at least useful to the regular user. Being someone who speaks Spanish but most of his searches are in English, this have being helpful a lot of times, and if I found it useful, someone will too.

Text

There are a little over 550 different words, and few of these are:

crankshaft = cigüeñal
engine block = bloque del motor
exhaust manifold = válvula de escape
flywheel = volante
fuel injector = inyector
banda de tiempo = timing belt
Banda Multiple = Serpentine Belt
biela = piston rod
bloque del motor = engine block
bujía = spark plug
odometer, trip = odómetro
speedometer = velocímetro
tachometer = tacómetro
temperature gage = indicador temperatura
turn signal indicator = direccionales

Tesla Motors Now Offering Their Patents for Free

This is one of the most amazing news we’ll be getting this year; Tesla Motors, the guys behind the Tesla Model S, announced today that all their patents for their technology will be free to grab by anyone with the title “All our patent are belong to you”.

With this they (we) hope to get a complete revolution in the automotive industry from the actual almost total use of gasoline to electric, reducing the production of CO2 and avoiding our practically doomed future.

But anyway, if you don’t even care about that, at least check this awesome comic by The Oatmeal.

GameBoy Advance Emulator for Windows 7+

I’m not too fond to use emulators, I prefer a lot play the game in the console, but sometimes there is no other choice, so after a quick search and tryouts, I found the one emulator that works 100% in Windows 7/8 100% and without any problem, VBA-M.

VisualBoyAdvance-M

VBA-M (VisualBoyAdvance-M) is a very cool emulator that I found and the main reason I talk about it is because of his compatibility with the latest Windows OS (32 and 64 bits), and because you can speed up the game with a key.

VisualBoyAdvance-M

Thanks to this, I ended three pokemon games in two days. Also, you can resize the window, which weirdly, is not that common in the emulator’s world.

Corrupted Text

One easy tool to use is Zalgo Text Generator, just copy and paste the text that appears in the text box you want to use it. But keep in mind that Facebook limits the size of the text, and it won’t appear complete.
