Sorted Web hosting. Want your own web site? Can't be bothered programing? Perhaps you would just like to get some web space for that new site you've been planning. I signed up with Dragontouch just recently, and I have been setting up and autogenerated page. Basically what this is, is a fully customizable no programming, complete www.yourname.com web site for £150. I have not found a service as easy to use or as cost effective as this one, in fact my friend paid out over nine hundred pounds for such a service by a different company(the page didn't work in netscape hehe). I am pleased with my purchase. I can update my site features what ever time I want, I don't have to send anything I want updated to programmers. How my web site works: ---------------------- I can log in and select a certain type of website I want to start making, this could be a designed template site, or a basic bare-bones site which I can build up how I want it with colours, font sizes, layout, images etc. Once you have selected the type of web site you wish to start building, you can proceed to the editing stage. You can add pages, links, images, your email address and a title image. When it comes to text formating, again it does not come up short. On each page you can have a title, various headers and plenty of body text under these headers. I have tried putting a huge amount of text on my site, as I am thinking of using it to display catalogues and products. It works very well, and the whole catalogue went on very easily. If you are a bit more brave, you could edit the HTML to your site when it it finished. This is a useful addition to the service. Other Services: --------------- As well as this auto generated site, Dragontouch supply web hosting for any need, and if you just want web hosting they have decent deals, you can get a small cheaper option, or a full on ecommerse site with on line
ordering - they will even throw in a free domain name for any package, nice chaps!
Put together a film with a cool modified Peugeot, scooter and motorbike stunts, really fast street racing and a frenchman and you come out with a film called Taxi? The Madness of the writer to end up with such a concept, you must be thinking. If you have seen this film before or not, you will appreciate a lot of the films content, including it's unique look at car crime, that unique look would be *in my best french accent* "as if I should care". If you remember the trailor to this movie, you will recall the scene as a hurried businessman gets into what he thinks is just a random taxi, but then as he tells the driver where he wants to go, the driver looks at him casualy and flicks a few switches which make the car transform into a street rod. Burning off to the location he hits over 110 Mph and even knocks over a police speed camera at one point.Nice. The basic plot: The police hire the reluctant taxi driver to catch a bunch of robbers, who are basically high speed burglers, they pull up in two sporty modified Merc's commit the crime, and then they are gone before the police even get there. There are severaly scenes throughout the film to keep you interested, but it can tend to wear a bit thin sometimes. I thought that this film had an amazing collection of filming and street racing ideas, which is in my opinion THE ONLY reason why this film is any good, but that's OK right? well it is, if you can wade through the near dire delivery of script by most of the characters, oh and the script it's self is quite dodgy, but then did I mention that there was street racing in it? One of the things that annoyed me a little was that the script writer seemed always to be trying to prove that 406's were better than Merc's because they're french(!) OK. Another aspect of the film I found mildly frustrating was the sidekick, who seemed to hang around like a smell, yet he was essential to the films story
line (I would have written him out). An aspect of the films genetic make-up is the soundtrack. The stomping beats of French Hip-Hop are definately an aquired taste, but it just seems to make the entire film work. If you like this film you might even find your self buying a copy! Would it not be a suprise, I thought after watching this film if Hollywood took the concept of this and put in more explosions cars and load-mouths... oh and less french people. I was indeed correct as the brand new 'The Fast And The Furious' was released in Taxi's wake, which was great because it looked pretty good (then I saw it). Of course the sequel film Taxi 2 is out now in which the car actually fly's... Oh dear. However this first film is still a classic of sorts. I Recomend this film 100%! Check it out for some Nitrous action There are two versions of this film: Dubbed and subtitled, on the dvd you should be able to choose either, otherwise, make sure you look on the video box to see if it tells you which version it is.
Wave Twisters, Episode 7 Million: Sonic Wars Within the Protons Scratch guru DJ Qbert has produced this brand new, never before attempted concept album, featuring heavy stylish beats and rythms, playing synphony to the outstanding turntable work overlaid. I couldn't beleive it when I first heard of the source of record samples used for scratching- a collection of really old vinyl, including He-man and other super hero story records amongst others... I thought that I was a pretty deep record digger, usually in a record shop/charity shop/vinyl fare/internet "E-sales" record section, looking for old beats to juggle, or unusual or quirky records to scratch. However, Qbert takes it a step further by taking these samples and compling them with almost superhuman skill to create a story through out the entire CD! The basic story features heavily on one character - The Inner Space Dental Commander, who's mission is to defeat evil by forcing mouthwash on deserving villains. Trust me - this is just something you have to hear! It gets better---> When Qbert originaly finished this album, a small group of animators heard it and thought that it would be a great idea to make an animation to the story. After a lot of hard work animating and a lot post production ... "Wave Twisters - the movie" was born. The movie is increadibly funny, and also as unique as the sound track, combining computer, hand drawn and photographic animation (sounds as hard to produce as the sound track to me). If you are open minded about music you will enjoy this, as it's not hardcore Turntablism or Hip-Hop, but a new fresh blend of styles which will have you coming back to it time after time after time.... Check out the website for more information on the album and movie: http://www.wavetwisters-themovie.com/ If you are interested in purchasing this album you can find
it at amazon: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/stores/detail/-/music/B00000FDML/glance/1 02-2574641-2780903 If there is one CD or video that you should get this week, I would recomend this for sure!
Zone Alarm (http://www.zonelabs.com/) could save your E-life. By downloading this invaluable software, you will be able to stop unwanted processes leaving your computer i.e. when you run internet explorer for the first time after loading zone alarm, the program will ask you if you would like to grant it access to the internet. If a hacker has installed some kind of 'trojan' (a hidden server-client based accessing program) on your system, he will be unable to connect to the invisible aplication running on your computer. This aplication works in two ways:- no unwanted incoming ip transmissions and, no unauthorized outgoing requests, thus solving the age old question how can I stop KidSuperHacker284 getting into my system. I have found this software absolutely great, and very essential - since I installed Zone Alarm I have had numerous IP pings, this worried me because imagine how many of these events had past un noticed before. Some of these scans would more than likely be Hackers scanning a list of IP addresses to see if they have any backdoors or trojans that they can activate, some would just be network trafic, but who cares - I'm safe..... Are you?
Have you ever wondered about the seventh wonder? This book gives you an insight into a possible meaning behind various geographical locations containing ancient buildings such as the great sphinx and pyramids of Egypt. This suprising book from author Graham Hancock connects various aspects of suedo history, ancient songs, biblical texts and great monuments. Sounds silly? After you have finished the book you may not think so. Graham goes about pointing out that there have been civilizations before our own, some maybe even more powerful. Some of the evidence that springs to light after his lengthy research can at times be quite eerie, but not infalable, which means that some sections you have to take with a pinch of salt. This book takes you on a journey round the world to various locations of mystery and then systematicaly uncovers likely truths behind them. Every chapter in this book is very nicely written, sometimes borderline travel writer, which gives the book a more personal feel to it. There is a lot of what tries so hard to be solid evidence as well in this book, a lot of which acheives, suggesting things like a complete pole shift and the pyramids of egypt aligning with the belt of orion (both of which have since been proven true). This book spawned me to conduct my own reserch on this topic, and read a host of other sources. If you want to know why all ancient calenders end around the year 2020 then this book is a fantastic starting point, which is readable by anybody, and provides you with enough features to keep you thinking for a while. I can't recomend this book enough. If you are an Egyptologist however you might not like this book so much as it could crumbles a lot of existing theorys on Egypt, but still read it if you can, it is always good to increase your knowledge of any subject. If you are not a great reader then the 600 page book might seem a little dramatic, but owning a copy means that you c
ould refur to it at a later date if you ever wanted to. If you would like to purchase this book, you can go to Amazon.co.uk:- http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0517887290/avsearch-20/102-2574641-2780 903
You`ve seen the adverts, a bunch of 60`s free love, wife swapping hippies in miscellaneous woods and nudists cooking bacon, amongst others... I suppose that they were going for comedy. Of course this in it`s self is funny, seeing as their technical support department is pure comedy. You could send up to ten emails asking just one question, until they eventualy get back to you with a pathetic response such as `no it doesn`t`.... and this is if you`re lucky.. `why do I even bother to try an email you for help freeserve?` [popular subject line] You might as well bang the keyboard on the monitor, in fact It might even be under their faq`s somewhere(!) But let me not dwell on this rotten subject too long. I signed up for their `anytime` subscription about two years ago, it`s been a bit of a roller coaster, but at the end of the day they do provide you a service for a fair price, which has no call charges, and enables you to connect to the net for an unlimited ammount of time... that is if you live in the correct area. I live in Bournemouth, and the connection to the server is usually reliable, and I can get great download speed with my 56.6(as good as a 56.6k modem is! hmmm) However I have spoken to people from different parts of the country, and they have a different story to tell. If you live in Brighton, or the midlands you might want to think of choosing a different ISP, as sometimes you are lucky if you can connect to the internet, let alone get a good connection speed. Recently the price has increased a little, making me wonder if this is because they are going to improve their service, or increase the bill yet further. I hope not the latter. At present the monthly charge for anytime is £13.99 - now, I don`t mind this, even though keeping in mind the customer support, or lack of there in, because all has been well recently, it almost makes me forget the odd time tha
t their server goes down over night. Almost. I would only recomend this service to people that don`t require any help with setting up an account (which is straight forward) or don`t have many or no questions to ask about their services. At the moment they are building an online help guide, which is OK, but obviously not as good as proper tech support Features offered: ----------------- -Unlimited Internet access with an annoying two hour disconnection. (I find this very annoying) -15mb of web space with an address like: www.yourname.fsnet.co.uk -the ability to check your email from their website (useful if you travel a lot) Breakdown: ---------- If you know what the web is, and you don`t have questions, then the £13.99 price tag might appeal, but if I was signing up for them now, I would certainly shop around first. !TAKE CAUTION!
