WikiMapia - Let’s describe the whole world!

WikiMapia is an online map and satellite imaging resource that combines Google Maps with a wiki system, allowing users to add information (in the form of a note) to any location on Earth.
Created by Alexandre Koriakine and Evgeniy Saveliev, the project was launched on May 24, 2006 and is aiming towards “describing the whole planet Earth”. WikiMapia is unrelated to Wikipedia and the Wikimedia Foundation, but the website states that it was “inspired by Wikipedia.”
WikiMapia allows any contributor to add a “Hotspot” to any map by marking out a rectangle (with the maximum length of any one side being 20 kilometers) which is wiki-linked to a note providing information about the locality. The note may be in any of 64 languages currently supported, and may be modified by any contributor, as in a wiki. The link is activated by clicking within the rectangular “Hotspot”.

JR Split File - Split a large file into smaller files

The File Split function allows you to split a large file into smaller files and create a standard .bat file that can be used to reconstruct a copy of the original file.
This function is useful for breaking large text files into more usable segments or for breaking a file into segments to fit on multiple diskettes.


First select the file you want to split into smaller pieces. Click "!" button to open file selection dialog.

By default, the directory is the current JR Split File installation dir. You can change this by clicking on the "!" button. Do not select a floppy drive because JR Split File won't pause for you to insert disks.

Bytes per file: This is where you select the maximum size of the resulting files. For example, if you have a 4 MB ZIP file that you wish to put on diskette - you may wish to select the 1.44MB option from the size drop-down box. This would split the file into 3 segments and also create the .bat file needed to restore the files to the single original.

Template for splitting files: By default, this is the file name for the file you selected. HOWEVER, since this function uses a DOS based .bat file to reconstruct the split files - it is imperative that the Template file name conforms to DOS file name limitations. You should limit the Template file name to 8 characters with no blank spaces or special characters.

Generate batch file for merging: By default, this option is selected because without the .bat file, there is no way to restore the created segments into a copy of the original - it is recommended you leave the default.

After clicking the OK button - the selected file will be split into the desired directory and file size using a simple numbering system for new file extensions. For example, the split of massive.txt will result in massive.1, massive.2, massive.3, etc. and, of course, the massive.bat file that is used to reconstruct the segments into a copy of the original. All of the file segments and the .bat file must be in the same directory in order for the .bat to be run and function properly.

Save images in Microsoft Word documents as separate files

You can save all the pictures in a Word document to individual image files using the Save as Web page option (Word 2000, Word 2002/XP, and Word 2003) or by unzipping the .docx file (Word 2007).

For manually adding pictures to a Microsoft Office Word document is a simple process. Saving pictures already embedded in a Word document as separate image files can be a bit more difficult–unless you know these simple tricks.

Imagine the following scenario. Some sent you a Word document loaded with pictures (30 or more). You need the pictures as individual image files, but for some reason the document’s creator can’t send you the images.

Now, you could open the document in Word, select a single image, copy it, paste the image into your favorite image-editing application, and then save the picture. But, this would take too long. You could also create a script or macro to remove copy the images, but again, this is more work than necessary. Following are the simple tricks.

Save as Web page

Using the following steps for Word 2000, Word 2002/XP, or Word 2003:

  1. Open the document in Word.
  2. Click File from the Standard Toolbar.
  3. Click Save As.
  4. Specify your Save in location.
  5. Select Web Page (*.htm; *.html) from the Save as type drop-down menu, as shown in Figure A.
  6. Click Save.


When you save the document as a Web page, Word creates an .htm file and folder containing the embedded images, as shown in Figure B.

Figure B


By default, Word saves supporting files to a subfolder in the same location as the main .htm file. By default, Word saves supporting files to a subfolder in the same location as the main .htm file. You can instruct Word to save the files to the .htm file’s location instead of a folder from the Web Options settings window.

The .htm file contains the document’s text, formatting information, properties, image references, and so forth. Open the .htm file with and HTML editor, and you can see the code Word generates. As I mentioned above, the folder contains the document’s embedded images and a filelist.xml file, as shown in Figure C.

Figure C


If the image has been resized within Word, the folder will contain both the original image and a resized copy. Word will preserve each file’s original format (.jpg, .png, etc.) but will not preserve the image’s original file name. Word renames the files in ascending order starting with the first image in the document. Each original image is immediately followed by the resized copy, if it exists.

Depending on the Web Options settings, Word may automatically create a resized image when you save the file as a Web page. Word may also convert the image to a .gif. For example, if you haven’t told Word to allow .png as a graphics format under Web Options and you insert a .png file into your document, the supporting-files folder will contain both the original image file and a resized, reformatted .gif copy.

You can now copy the file(s) to another location.

Unzipping a .docx file

With Word 2007, Microsoft introduced the XML-based .docx file format. The new format is essentially a ZIP container, which contains a series of XML files and any embedded images. To access the embedded images in a .docx file, use the following steps:

  1. If it’s not already a .docx file, Open the file in Word 2007 and save the file as a Word Document (*.docx).
  2. Change the file extension on the original file from .docx to .zip, as shown in Figure D.

Figure D


  1. Open the file using a ZIP application. The image files should be listed at the top of the file list, as shown in Figure E.

You can now copy the file(s) to another location.

Send large email attachments with Docstoc Oneclick


Docstoc OneClick is an easy way to e-mail large documents, without attaching files. Instead of emailing files as attachments, you can send large documents as links to all of your contacts. The documents can be viewed and downloaded from Docstoc, allowing you to send large files with ease and confidence of receipt. With OneClick, simply right click any large document(s) to instantly send files to any of your contacts via email.Both sharing and viewing Docstoc OneClick documents require registration for a free account at Docstoc.

Right now Docstoc OneClick is Windows only, but a Mac version is coming soon. There doesn’t seem to be a way to configure OneClick to work with a web-based email service like Gmail or Yahoo! Mail. So when it launches an email Windows, it will load up whatever Windows thinks is your default email application, which might be Outlook, Outlook Express, or Thunderbird.

Docstoc OneClick doesn’t work with all file types, just documents like Word, Excel, or PDF files. You cannot upload media files. File transfer service YouSendIt offers a similar application, but without the limitations on file types, and with a higher file size limit. But the advantage to using Docstoc is that users can view documents without downloading them.

IE8 Beta 2 coming in Auguest

Bill Gates gave his last talk, appropriately, to developers at TechEd. In his speach he talked about Internet Explorer, and how IE 8 will have an update in a couple of months:

“Gates also highlighted Microsoft’s flagship Web technology, the Internet Explorer (IE) browser, which has been an asset and a curse for the company over the years. While it allowed Microsoft to secure its dominant position in Web-browsing technology, it also triggered Microsoft’s U.S. antitrust woes, something that haunts the company to this day. IE also has taken a hit in the past several years as Mozilla Firefox, an open-source browser, has gained a loyal following, forcing Microsoft to step up development and make its own product more innovative.

Gates revealed that beta 2 of the next version of IE, IE 8, will be available in August. He also stumped for what has been his pet interest during his years at Microsoft — natural human-interface technology that allows people to interact with computers in ways similar to how they interact with each other. Last week, Microsoft revealed that the next version of Windows, Windows 7, will include touchscreen technology, a fact he mentioned in his talked.”

ICONlook ; icon search engine

When it comes to tracking down some icons for a project -- nothing real fancy, and preferably under some kind of open license -- image searching on Google doesn't always do the trick. ICONLook is a search site that you can try instead: it's specifically for icons, and it has some useful features that make it worth a peek if you're in a pinch. These are generally OS-type icons, for stuff like apps, documents and search buttons, so don't get your hopes up for anything too fanciful. Heck, we couldn't even find anything as wild and crazy as a cat icon on ICONLook.
Selection is not ICONLook's strong point. Even within the categories it's designed for, there's not a lot of variety. On the plus side, many of the icons are available in a number of different sizes, and there are links to the source and the license for each one. This puts to rest any worries that this might be some kind of hack job, or the work of nefarious icon pirates. Instead, what you get is a legitimate, middle of the road selection of licensed icons that will hopefully expand to become more useful.
