Tidbit ~ VerseClick

Just a quite Tidbit for your blog and/or site. In working on one of my sites (rightdivisiontoo.com), I came across a nice tool you can use on your site found on AV1611 called VerseClick. Nice in that if you have a need to quote Scripture, it is quite convenient and useful. This tool, a popup, shows the verses of Scripture you type by hovering your mouse over the text. It is actually quite easy to use as all you have to do is copy and paste a simple script into the header section of your Website. It is Javascript and AV1611.com gives the script along with options for cosmetic changes to the popup if you so desire. It is really, really simple to add to your site and there is a link to email them if you have questions.

If the visitor is clicks a link on your site that opens in a new window, it will show when the visitor left your site and where the visitor went.

Flag Counter





Want to make your blog or website pop?

Flag Counter by Boardhost is an easy and free way to do this. Flag Counter enables you to see which countries visitors to your website are from by displaying the country’s flag. Additionally, a number is shown next to the flag to show the number of new visitors to your site from the country (See image below). You can add Flag Counter to any website that supports images. Adding the counter is quite simple because you only need to add one line of HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) code to your site. Flag Counter gives detailed instructions which are quite simple to follow. You have the option of customizing the counter or leaving it at the default settings.

DuckDuckGo


DuckDuckGo is an Internet search engine that focuses on privacy and was named after the childhood game duck duck goose. This engine protects your personal information while you search, allowing for anonymity. Originally started with a focus on instant answers and spam filtering, privacy was later added to the equation. The Founder and CEO is Gabriel Weinberg and the company is located in Paoli , Pennsylvania. According to their blog, the site is being redesign to incorporate user feedback such as images, places and auto-complete with smarter answers. The next version of DuckDuckGo is scheduled for release next month, but that all depends on user feedback.

2012 Worst Passwords

A few years ago, I wrote two posts on secure passwords (see links at the end of this post).  Thursday, October 25, 2012 CNN's Olivia B. Waxman published an article on the worst passwords, "The 25 Worst Passwords of 2012" to be exact. I know Web Bytes readers are extremely tech savvy and won't fall into this pattern, so here is the list for you to share with friends and family:

1. password
2, 123456
3. 12345678
4. abc123
5. qwerty
6. monkey
7. letmein
8. dragon
9. 111111
10. baseball
11. iloveyou
12. trustno1
13. 1234567
14. sunshine
15. master
16. 123123
17. welcome
18. shadow
19. ashley
20. football
21. jesus
22. michael
23. ninja
24. mustang
25. password1

You can read Olivia's article in its entirety on the CNN website at the link above. I Hope this post in conjunction with my previous posts on passwords will help you to create passwords that are easy for you to remember, but difficult for others to guess. As mentioned above, the following links are from Web Bytes published in 2009.

As always, please email me with topics you are interested in knowing more about and let’s have a good time learning together!

Happy Birthday Web bytes!


This is the fifth birthday for Web Bytes. I have not been very productive in blogging, here or at Technorati, this year because of school. Hopefully this would change soon on both sites and I can get back on track writing on new and exciting technologies.

Thanks again to all who follow both blogs and I hope you continue. As always, please let me know if there is a particular topic, application and/or device you are interested in knowing more about.
