I was approached in late 2012 and asked about the possibility of creating a personal offline version of the Google Play Store (free apps only). This would essentially involve collecting every application from the Play Store and the related information like title, description and so on.
It’s been over 4 months since the project was completed and I’m finally able to share some details about it.

I’ve been sitting on this one for awhile and decided it’s time to share it with the world. If you need a lot of unique IPs to make GET requests (quite often suitable for rigging online polls) without having to resort to slow spam marked proxies, this is a great method. The same method can be used on any busy website where you can place an ‘image’.

Esruns Rank Checker is a fast light-weight keyword rank checker. It allows you to quickly see where your site ranks in Google, for a list of keywords. Rather than pretending to be a genuine web browser, it sits on top of, and automates, your regular browser – meaning you can check a lot more keywords without requiring proxies or getting blocked by Google.
So quite a few years ago, I blogged about how I wished Youtube had some kind of playlist feature, so I could line up a bunch of videos and have them play one after another. Thankfully, we now have that feature.
What I really want now is a volume enhancement option which allows you to hear a volume increased (and perhaps basic audio enhancement) version of the video.
Update: Torrific ceased operations (scroll to bottom for full update).
Let me start by explaining what Torrific is, for those who aren’t familiar with the service. Usually you’d use a bittorrent client like Transmission or uTorrent to download torrents. Torrific takes away the hassle and problems associated with downloading torrents and does the download for you and then gives you a regular HTTP download through your browser.
So not only are you saving yourself from the risk of being kicked off your ISP (if you’re downloading a dodgy torrent) but you’re also maximizing your connection speed with a nice clean HTTP download.
