Ello Invitation Code

So i joined Ello today . I know the initial buzz regarding this had died down . But still there are tons of people who are eager to check out the new social media experience . So , what is Ello ? This is what the makers says

Ello is a simple, beautiful, and ad-free social network created by a small group of artists and designers.

We originally built Ello as a private social network. Over time, so many people wanted to join Ello that we built a public version of Ello for everyone to use.

Ad-free

Ello doesn’t sell ads. Nor do we sell data about you to third parties.

Virtually every other social network is run by advertisers. Behind the scenes they employ armies of ad salesmen and data miners to record every move you make. Data about you is then auctioned off to advertisers and data brokers. You’re the product that’s being bought and sold.

Collecting and selling your personal data, reading your posts to your friends, and mapping your social connections for profit is both creepy and unethical. Under the guise of offering a “free” service, users pay a high price in intrusive advertising and lack of privacy.

We also think ads are tacky, that they insult our intelligence and that we’re better without them.

Anyways , for those who are searching frantically over internet for the invite code , i have some good news . I got some invite codes with me and i am willing to share for free . Please leave your email id in the comments , i will send you the codes . Oh don’t worry , i don’t spam .

Alternatively , you can give a try on the ello code generators ( google it ) , but most of them doesnot work .

Bye Bye . Happy to help 😀

Amazing time Lapse Movie using Nikon Coolpix P510 camera

Nikon P510 ! An amazing camera to own . We all know about the amazing 42 X zoom of this camera and not to mention about the near DSLR adjustments possible. But many of us may be unaware of the capability of this camera to make time lapse shots . You can use these shots in a video editor to create an amazing time lapse movie .

Have a look at this video from YouTube to have an idea of what is possible , even though the camera used is a different one . 

 

You can create a movie similar to that one by following these simple steps . To make time lapse shots , an external device called intervalometer is used . Fortunately , for us the Nikon Coolpix P510 comes with an inbuilt setting which could be used as an alternative.  

How to do it ?

Before you start taking pictures , make sure that your camera is fully charged . 
Enough space is there in the SD card.
Also , if you don’t have a tripod , make sure to keep the camera in a steady position .
Change the camera mode into Manual focus mode and lock the focus on your point of interest.
Press the Fn key on the camera and choose the timer setting.
Use a 5 minutes or 10 minutes for the timer , it is your choice.
Press the Shutter button once .
Remember that the camera will keep on capturing pictures in regular intervals , till you stop the camera . So make sure that the time setting you choose is ideal for your purpose . 
The camera will go into the standby mode in between the shoots , but remember every initial setting including zoom. Don’t press the shutter button till you are done with the shoot. Press the power button to stop shooting .
Once you have all the shots , drop the pics into a video editor like the free Windows Movie Maker. 
Use an interval of 10 frames per second or so .Now you should have made your time lapse movie 
 
Please watch the below video to know how to do it . I used the Nikon Coolpix P510 camera , but this trick applies to all Coolpix cameras .
 

 

So what you think of the trick. Know something better. Please drop in your suggestions and comments below . Happy to help 🙂

Download YouTube videos without any software , java or plug ins

This week I am going to tell you how to download videos from YouTube without any software or browser plugins. There are many websites like keepvid.com that offers users to download YouTube videos in multiple format. But most of them requires Java to be installed in your computer . Also there are possible sources of security vulnerabilities in the java . Also these websites (some of them) does not work in the mobile browsers.
So what is an alternative. Officially Google does not allow you to download from YouTube and doing it is against the user policy of them. So we are left with the third party websites.
So let us see how to download from YouTube .
Go to Youtube home page and open the video you want to download
I wanted to download the official FIFA World Cup 2014 Song . To download it , i need to add ‘ss’ to the address , just before ‘youtube’
You will be redirected to the page of website en.savefrom.net
Just click in which format you want the video. Done ! The video will start downloading immediately . Give it a try
Got a better idea ? Please share with me .

Re- enable right click in websites that block it

Untitled-1

You probably might have came across some websites that blocks the right click menu . Every time you right click , a script message will be displayed . This could be particularly annoying , when you are trying to copy some picture or text from the page .Website makers have incorporated this feature for safety of the customer and in some cases to protect the content .

But there is a way by which you could surpass this restriction. All you have to do is to disable the scripts in the page . For that , in chrome , press CTRL, SHIFT and J together to reach the console window . Now click the gear icon on the right side of the console to open the settings page .

Untitled-3

In the settings page , you have the option to enable or disable scripts.

Untitled-4

Click the check box to disable scripts . Now close the console window and reload the page . The right click restriction is now bypassed .

Now , this trick has got a disadvantage also. What you have now done is disabling all the scripts from running . Not just this page , but for the whole browser. So some of the web functionalities will not work. To make them work , just enable the scripts in the settings page. Done
