Interesting web find - arul john's utilities site

I found this web find called arul john's utilities site. It is a very handy site to use for IP lookups, telephone tracking, MAC address lookup, IP/CIDR subnet, IP to hostname and viewing HTTP headers. After reviewing a bit more, I noticed there is even a Bible verse lookup.

Here is one use of this web find.

What is Arul's IP Address Tracking Program used for?

1. You get abusive mails from somebody and want to know where it has come from!
2. Someone mails you claiming to be from one place and you suspect that he or she is from another place
3. You just want to track an email you received
4. You want to trace an IP address or do an IP address lookup out of curiosity

The site also provides email addresses so that you can report the abuser to their ISP.

The world's oldest Internet blogger, Ms. Olive Riley, has passed away

The world's oldest Internet blogger, Ms. Olive Riley, has passed away on July 12, 2008. She was a 108 years old Australian but young in heart and mind and an inspiration to all bloggers from all age groups and all walks of life.

In her final post on June 26, Ms. Riley wrote: "I can't believe I've been here in this nursing home for more than a week.

"How the days have flown, even though I've been in bed most of the time. I still feel weak, and can't shake off that bad cough.

"Penny, who's in the next bed to mine, had a visit one day this week from her daughter, who's a professional singer. Guess what happened! She and I sang a happy song, as I do every day, and before long we were joined by several nurses, who sang along too. It was quite a concert!"

Rest in Peace Ms. Riley.

How much is my website worth?

Here is an interesting website I found via compete.com. It gives you a rough estimate of what your site might be worth. Per the Website Valued website, it gives you an estimated value of your online business by profiling your website for technical information, keywords, public visitor stats and then comparing them to the database of previous site and domain sales.

It also gives you an estimate of advertising revenue based on the traffic statistics. When I checked my three websites, two were fairly close to the upper limit range.
