Have you ever wanted to speed up or slow down the videos you watch in Youtube? Fortunately, this is really easy. I will show you a couple of ways to do this.
Project Time Sheet Overview:
Project Time Sheet is a time tracking spreadsheet designed for independent or personal projects. The time sheet automatically tracks your time for each project you are working on so that you can know how much time you spend on you different projects. This time sheet is especially useful for people who work from home, bloggers, Youtubers, independent contractors, photographers, musicians, graphic designers, web designers, etc.

Imagine this scenario:
You are getting ready to move to a new home. You don't want to hire a moving company because of the price so you decide you will do everything yourself with the enlisted help of your friends.
You send a text to all of your friends. The text goes something like this. "Hey good buddy friend! I am going to be moving this weekend and I would love your help. Would you be able to come help me move Saturday morning at 9:00?"
So Saturday morning rolls around and guess what. No one comes. You see one of your friends a week later and ask why they did not come and they say something like "Oh, I am so sorry... I was busy that day and I thought all of your others friends would go there to help."
Classic. They saw that your text message went to about 50 other people and they assumed someone else would help.

10 tips for dealing with and getting past internet censorship in China (The Great Firewall of China).
If you are reading this, it likely means that you are planning on going to China or you currently are in China and have already found a way to bypass China's great firewall. If you are not in China but planning on going, these 10 tips will help make your life easier once you get there. If you are already in China, chances are you have already done a few of these things but it will be good to look through this list to see what you can still do.
Quick refresher on the internet in China: China censors almost all of the most popular websites common in the US. This includes, Facebook, Twitter, anything Google owned (Youtube, Gmail, Google search, Google Docs, Android services etc), and most blogging platforms.
In order to survive in China, you either have to learn how to live without using these websites or you will have to get a VPN or proxy.
Below I have listed 10 tips that will hopefully make your internet life in China a bit easier.
ShadeYouVPN has all the standard features you would expect from any good VPN service provider. With ShadeYouVPN you can connect using the usual protocols and can download custom software as well to make connecting a breeze. The service and fast and reliable.
The thing that sets ShadeYouVPN from all the rest is the price! At $2.17/month (with yearly subscription) ShadeYouVPN is definitely one of the cheapest VPNs money can buy. Aside from this incredible price, you can connect up to 5 devices at once. That makes ShadeYouVPN the cheapest VPN I have seen for the price per device.
Most nice remote controls have an LED that will blink when you use it. This lets you know that the batteries have a charge and the remote is probably emitting an infrared signal. So what happens when your remote does not have an LED and you need to know if the remote is transmitting a signal or not? Simple; point the emitter at a digital camera (like the one on your smart phone) and press a button. If it lights up, you are good to go, if not, you probably have a dead battery.
While many programs have been created to help you download Youtube videos, most of these programs do not allow you to download an entire Youtube channel or playlist. It turns out that doing this is actually quite easy and only requires a browser you most likely already have (Firefox) and a couple of add-ons (BYTubeD and DownThemAll). Because Firefox is cross platform compatible, this means you can do this in any OS (which is great for people like me who use Linux).
Before I start this tutorial, I want to make one thing clear: I do NOT recommend you use OpenShot to make a time-lapse video. It is certainly possible, but far too buggy in my opinion. I have done another tutorial documenting how to do the same thing using Kdenlive, and it is MUCH easier to do. You can view that tutorial here.
Time-lapse is a fun thing to do. Whether looking at clouds, plants, or in my case, cooking food, time-lapse is a way to make things a bit more exciting. Fortunately, it is quite easy to do in Linux.
