    Transparent Effect For Images

    Using this CSS code you can add transparent image effect to blog or website images.
    For example see the below image.


    CSS Code for transparent effect:

    <img src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-aRA3QBkWd4M/TuVFrUTyzcI/AAAAAAAAA_0/AIOIgXd7jdg/s320/tweetb.jpg" border="0" onmouseout='this.style.opacity=0.4;this.filters.alpha.opacity=40' onmouseover='this.style.opacity=1;this.filters.alpha.opacity=100' style='opacity:0.4;filter:alpha(opacity=40)'/>

    This image transparent method uses opacity property from style sheet

    In above code Firefox uses the property opacity:x for transparency, where IE uses filter:alpha(opacity=x).
    For Firefox x takes value from 0.0 - 1.0. A lower value makes the element more transparent.
    For IE x can take value from 0 - 100. A lower value makes the element more transparent.

    Note:
    1. Change the image url which is show in red color with your own image url.
    2. Opacity value of zero will make image invisible.

    Do you want change the Google Home page with your name or any text lets see how it is. There are some websites that helps you to replace Google text with your name but they change the Google login url and you don’t feel that you are searching in google as they use  custom search. It will be a surprise for non-techie guys if they see their name or their pic on Google Home page. Now you can easy change the google logo with your text and even add image instead of  Google logo and that too from the Google extensions.
    The main advantage of this extension is it wont change the default Google search engine path. It just overwrite the Google logo text with your own text.

    You can upload even your own image in place of logo.
    Install Google Logo Over-Writer into your chrome browser, works only with chrome.

    Tag Generator for Images



    This script uses the of your image to auto generate the "alt" and "title" tags. In other words, the name of your image stands as the text for your alt and title tag. It picks up the next character after the last instance of "/" from the image URL as the starting letter of your alt or title tag. The ending character will be recognized using the last instance of "." from your image URL.

    For example, you upload an image "image.jpg" using post editor. You'll find the image URL as "http://1.bp.blogspot.com/....../image.jpg". When you publish the article and go check out the source code of the same (source code of the image), you'll find the following tags in it - alt="image" and title="image".

    Steps to install the script:

    Before doing this backup your full template.

    1. Open you blogger dashboard and navigate to "Design >> "Edit HTML" (Template >> Edit Html in Blogger's new look)
    2. Search for </body> tag
    3. Paste the below code just above the </body> tag.

    <script src='http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js' type='text/javascript'/>
    <script type='text/javascript'>
    //<![CDATA[
    $(document).ready(function() {
      $('img').each(function(){
        var $img = $(this);
        var filename = $img.attr('src')
        $img.attr('alt', filename.substring((filename.lastIndexOf('/'))+1, filename.lastIndexOf('.')));
      });
    });
    //]]>
    </script>


    <script type='text/javascript'>
    //<![CDATA[
    $(document).ready(function() {
      $('img').each(function(){
        var $img = $(this);
        var filename = $img.attr('src')
        $img.attr('title', filename.substring((filename.lastIndexOf('/'))+1, filename.lastIndexOf('.')));
      });
    });
    //]]>
    </script>

    4. Save your template. That's it.

    Do You Know These Mouse Tips


    Use the mouse side buttonsMany new computer mice have buttons on the side of the mouse. These buttons can be programmed to do anything, however, by default the left-thumb button can be used to go back on a web page. This makes browsing the Internet more enjoyable since you do not need to move the mouse cursor to the browser back arrow button in order to go back a page.

    Use the Windows Snap To feature
    Take full advantage of the Windows mouse Snap To feature, which will automatically move your mouse to buttons that appear in a dialog box. For example, if you delete a file or close a window you may get a prompt asking you if you are sure you want to perform the task. With the Snap To feature enabled, the mouse cursor automatically moves to the Ok button, so all you will have to do is click the mouse button if you agree. This saves you the time of having to move the mouse cursor over to the Ok button and then click Ok. To enable this feature open the Mouse properties under the Windows Control Panel and check the Snap To check box under the Pointer Options tab.
    While changing this feature we also suggest looking at other available options in the Mouse settings. For example, increasing the Motion speed can also help increase your productivity while using the mouse.

    Manage the open window with the mouse
    Double-click the top title bar of any window to maximize a window or if it is already maximized resize it to a window. You can also double-click the icon for the window in the top-left corner of the window to close that window.

    Move the mouse with your keyboard
    Instead of using the mouse that came with your computer you can also enable Windows to use the number pad as a mouse.

    Shift key and mouse click
    Many text editors and programs allow you to highlight all or portions of text using the Shift key and the mouse. For example, place the cursor at the beginning of a paragraph, hold down the Shift key and click at the end of the paragraph to highlight the full paragraph.

    Take full advantage of the scroll wheel
    Today, everyone is fully aware of a mouse wheels ability to scroll up and down on a page. However, this wheel can also do so much more, as shown below.
    • The mouse wheel is not just a wheel, it can also be used as a button. Pressing down on the wheel will act like a third mouse button. This can be used to open a web page in a tab by clicking the wheel on any link and can also be used to close a tab by clicking the wheel on any open tab.
    • Quickly Zoom in and Out on a web page, word document, excel spreadsheet, etc. by holding down the Ctrl key and scrolling up to zoom in and down to zoom out.
    •  Move forward and backwards while browsing the Internet by holding down the Shift key and scrolling up and down. Scrolling down goes back and scrolling up goes forward.
    Select with double and triple click
    Any word can be easily selected by double-clicking the word. If you want to highlight the whole paragraph, click the mouse button three times on any text in the paragraph.

    Use the right-clickTake full advantage of the right-click any time you highlight text or wish to view the properties of an object. For example, if you highlight a file or text, you can right-click that highlighted item copy it and then right-click anywhere else to paste it.
    • Tip If you right-click on any file or text and drag it while continuing to hold the right button, when you let go you will be given the option to move or copy that file or text. This saves you the extra step of having to right-click where you want to paste the item.
    • Tip While in a browser pressing and holding Ctrl while clicking on any link will open that link in a new tab.
    Ctrl key and mouse click or highlight
    While holding down the Ctrl key you can left-click to select multiple objects or highlight multiple sections of text. For example, in Microsoft Windows you could hold down the Ctrl key and click to select multiple files at once. If you wanted to highlight different parts of a paragraph or web page, you could also hold down the Ctrl key and select each section you wanted to copy.
    • Tip Mozilla Firefox users can also hold down the Ctrl key and individually click on each cell in a table they wish to copy or drag their mouse down a row to select just that row or text without selecting any of the other text in that table.
    Customize your mouse
    Finally, if you have a mouse with more than two buttons, installing the included mouse software will allow you to customize the mouse even more. For example, if you don't use the side buttons to move back and forth in a web page change it to something you do more often, such as switching between open windows or opening the calculator.

    Apt-Get Utility: Ubuntu's Advanced Packaging Tool (APT)


    The apt-get command is a powerful command-line tool used to work with Ubuntu's Advanced Packaging Tool (APT) performing such functions as installation of new software packages,  upgrade of existing software packages,  and even upgrading the entire Ubuntu system.

    Some examples of popular uses for the apt-get utility:

    Install a Package: Installation of packages using the apt-get tool is quite simple. For example, to install the network scanner nmap, type the following:
    sudo apt-get install nmap

    Remove a Package: Removal of a package or packages is also a straightforward and simple process. To remove the nmap package installed in the previous example, type the following:
    sudo apt-get remove nmap

    Update the Package Index: The APT package index is essentially a database of available packages from the repositories defined in the /etc/apt/sources.list file. To update the local package index with the latest changes made in repositories, type the following:
    sudo apt-get update

    Upgrade Packages: Over time, updated versions of packages currently installed on your computer may become available from the package repositories (for example security updates). To upgrade your system, first update your package index as outlined above, and then type:
    sudo apt-get upgrade
