How To Get YouTube embedded links validated

As you may know, the YouTube embedded links are not valid either XHTML 1.0 Transitional or HTML 4.01 Transitional. YouTube offers you a link like this:

<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/KMU0tzLwhbE&hl=de_DE&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/KMU0tzLwhbE&hl=de_DE&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

Google Buzz

Google Buzz Logo

Today, Google has launched a new project named Google Buzz. With this, Google wants to participate on the market of social networks. By a first look, it appears like a mixture of Facebook wall, Twitter and Google Wave. It’s not a secret, that Google Wave doesn’t really achieve a great acceptance so maybe Google Buzz should replace it in less complexity.

When logging into your Google Mail account, you get notified that Google Buzz is going to be embedded into your mail account. Sounds nice, but by clicking this big blue button you enables some unwanted preferences which aren’t as obvious as the new created label below your inbox.

Twitter – Lesson 6/7: Getting familiar

In this section I want to acquaint you with the usual commands and terminology of Twitter. When you first start, there are a lot of words which you may not know, but let me explain. If you’re interested in this topic, please read the other parts of this series.

Tweet

A Tweet is called the message you send on Twitter. It is the main word for everything, you type in in this little update window. A Tweet can be a single statement, an answer to someone or also a status update for Facebook.

Follower

A Follower is someone, who subscribed your updates or wanted to and you have to confirm that he can receive them. But compared to other social networks following someone is not the same as a friend request. Just because you subscribe his updates, you won’t automatically get his updates too.

Create own shortcuts in Word 2007

In Word 2007 there is no shortcut for inserting a section break. Even, if you want to customize and create own shortcuts, these functionality is not really easy to find. I think this is one of the biggest disadvantages in Word 2007. But on tortoiseshell.net I found a nice tutorial about defining own shortcuts.

Section breaks in Word 2007

In general, Microsoft Word supports these three break types.

  • Page break
  • Column break
  • Section break

Section breaks are a method of layout a document in word. Each section can be formatted independently from a previous or following section, e.g. in orientation, pagination or margins. To insert a section break click on page layout -> breaks. This has changed from Word 2003, where you found this option clicking on insert. Here you have four options to choose between.

Twitter – Lesson 3/7: Definition of microblogging

In this third part of my series about Twitter I want to talk about the Buzzword Microblogging and compare it with a “normal” blog. Please read also the previous articles:

Definition of microblogging

The main characteristic of a microblog is the limitation in characters.

Originally it is inspired by the SMS services. All microblogs have limited their maximum allowed characters per update to less than 200. This forces users to compress their information into this maximum. Another idea is the choice between public or private publishing. The user is free to select if he wants his updates to

  • be read by all users, who visit his profile. (public)
  • be read by all users, who are registrated and maybe confirmed to subscribe. (private)
