About making money online ..

This is a very heavily used 'search keyword' for any search engine. I know many people dream about the idea of making money online fast and quick. But it's just not simple as that folks. Trust me, I've been there.

To really make money online, you need to have a few skills on your hands. Like the knowledge of php, mysql databases, web designing etc. Then you need to think of an out of the box idea that is really going to pull people's socks over when they see it. Like, etc. Those things are where the real money is at.

But yes, I know if you really knew all that you probably wouldn't be searching for ways to make money. Well, there are small sites like MicroWorkers.Com that can get yourself wet to start with.

All it requires is to finish some simple tasks like, make a post, write an article, review something for a promised payment if you get the job done. Which is pretty neat.

It's not a lot of money, but at least you can be happy about earning something online out of no where to show off your friends and mates.

Your Comments could be saved on more than one location

Ever wondered about your posts on various forums or blogs being recorded and being displayed on other blogs or websites for relational and sequential purposes?

Well, I found this website, which is cool in a way that compares comments made by various users on different websites and then merges comments by calculating which comments were from the same author on any number of websites it finds, then shows them all in one page. Simply search for RoadsOut.Com on that site and you'll find a few of my comments on other blogs that I made also leaving behind the link to my site for the 'just in case' scenario.

It doesn't have all the comments I made, of course, because they'd simply require a lot of time and resources to track. But it's still a good start for that site.

It's just another relational kind of search engine that people certainly will find useful and should become very popular with time. Mind you, it has an Alexa rating in the 8000's so is quite popular already.

My New Year Resolution ..

My New Year Resolution is to avoid getting myself in bad type of situations. Wish me and my family and everyone a blissful new year and hope things are just A alright!

Have a good one!

Happy New Year!

Wikipedia almost completing their target of 7.5 Million

I'm pretty positive they're going to make it. They're at 7.3 Million. I'm not exactly sure about what date they started asking for donations. But it could only have been for the month of December.

They've really turned things around since numbers looked pretty grim for them in the start of the campaign. Credit has to go to their finance / administration department getting so many donations in a small period of time.

No doubt, Wikipedia is one of the most used and productive websites throughout the world. People were more than willing to donate for their cause.

I'm happy for Wikipedia, but I did not donate, because I simply thought they didn't really need asking for donations when they could simply have good Ad campaigns and sponsors to serve their purpose.

Thinking about getting sponsors, I wonder how much could they have injected into their infrastructure if they got real sponsors, given they could generate 7.3 Million within a month! - simply through donations!

Amazing! Isn't it?

Want to Loop your YouTube Videos?

Haven't you ever wondered why YouTube didn't have a 'Repeat' button so that you could play your favourite videos over and over again? I'm sure you have that's why you've come here.

Seems like Google just doesn't want YouTube to become another Music JukeBox. But guess what, you still can have continuous playback for YouTube videos, thanks to this cool website I found,

This site does exactly what it's name says. It allows you to loop any YouTube video that you enter in it. All you have to do is add the YouTube Video URL to the text box and the site will do the rest.

They also let you download YouTube videos, which is cool, but lots of other ways to do that.

Enjoy Play back guys!

How to remove browser padding?

If you're having problems with removing padding between your body and div tags especially when you're trying to add an image in your first div tag after opening the body tag. Then you should use the following code in your body tag.

<body marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" leftmargin="0" topmargin="0">

 I'm sure there are other ways to make this fix but I found this one helpful for killing spaces between body tag and the first div(s).

Hope this helps you too.

Getting the 'Taskbar has been disabled by Administrator' error?

I was getting this one too. It was due to a virus blocking my access to the task bar. I didn't disable it myself and I am the administrator of my own computer (obvious).

So I found this site that has a neat fix for it. First you have to make a clean sweep of any viruses using a good anti-virus software. Then you have to run the following command in the run function. The one in the start bar menu.

Mind you, I'm using Windows Xp Service Pack 2. Haven't tested it on any other system.

So the command is simple,

REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v DisableTaskMgr /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

All you have to do is copy paste that code and run it in the run menu. That fixed it for me.

For further help, visit this page, where I got my help from,

I'm seriously missing using Joomla

Joomla is such a wonderful little piece of software. In fact, it's not little even. It's huge. I love using it. You just have so much control over your posts and how you can display them. It's a complete content management system.

I'm pushing towards making a new layout for RoadsOut.Com with all the backed up former posts plus the latest on and uploading it sometime in march.

Lets see how that goes.

Ask.Com Search Bar is on to you!

I don't care how good or bad Ask.Com search is. But I'm seriously being annoyed by it with being in almost any free software bundle that you'd be getting your hands on. Most people don't even realise it when they're downloading free software that they install search in their browser/computer with them.

You just have to be careful while installing any software if it's not installing ask search with it into your browser. It's seriously annoying.

These type of cheap tricks don't work on people with enough intelligence to simply 'uncheck' the installation option for whenever they're installing something!

Improved Alexa Rating for RoadsOut.Com

Woohoo! RoadsOut.Com is showing some promise after the 'great black out' a few months ago when the site was gone for a whole month without any updates.

I'm pretty delighted to see the current trends of improvements on user based visits on the site. If this keeps up I'll be obliged to get a decent host again for the site and upload the proper Joomla Base that I have worked out for it.

I'll be sure to add some new treats on the site if it becomes are reality.

Lets see, time will tell.

IGN Daily fix answer: How far is Pandora from Earth in Avatar?

Pandora, a moon with an Earthlike environment that orbits a gas-giant planet called Polyphemis in the Alpha Centauri-A star system. At 4.4 light years away, Alpha Centauri is our nearest stellar neighbor, and when it is discovered that Pandora is rich in a rare-earth mineral called Unobtainium, the race is on to mine the new world's resources.

Again, 4.4 Light Years away from Earth.

Have fun.

Changing domain names really isn't a good idea for SEO

If you have a domain name that you've been running for a year or two and suddenly feel the urge to change the name because it's cooler or for any other reason whatsoever then you should know it's not a good SEO move.

All links urls have a google page rank and alexa rating history. The more people explore and 'hit' those urls / pages is the more it's going to look better on your Page Rank and Alexa rating score. Meaning it's just going well for you since more and more people keep finding your page.

I'd like to talk about an example a website I follow every now and then. It's Recently it's alexa rating has really declined to minimal levels. It should only be going up since they have a decent level of visitors on their forums.

I'll show the recent graph,

They got a new domain for their forums it seems and redirected old domain name, '' to This has made a huge decline in their normal hits for the real website ''. So it's going off the search engine charts as it seems while the other bogus domain name is gaining air.

It's like taking the life out of domain name. 99% of their traffic was linked to through their forum.

Using two or more domain names isn't a bad idea. Proper way of using them is to redirect new domain names to the old and the parent domain name so that it stays up. Which is the point of SEO.

Have fun. :)
