Useful stuff you can do with the Google Search Page
One of the reasons that the Google search engine has always remained so popular is that it never ceases to surprise. You get an idea, and think to yourself "I wonder if Google can do this?" and sure as nuts, it does it! I've started to wonder if there's anything they haven't thought of.

OK, I know they're only human, so there's bound to be something they've left out, but nevertheless, there's a lot of very useful things you can do with this search engine that make life a lot easier.

Here are some of the things I've discovered;  These give you instant answers without having to visit a web page:

To get the present time in any country in the world, just type into the Google search box "time in xxxxx" where xxxxx is the name of the country or town.

To convert between measurement units: I want to convert mph to knots, so I type in the search box "50mph in knots" and I get the answer. You can also type in "half a cup in teaspoons" and get an answer!
It also does calculations for you, so you can type in (eg). 5*7+67

To find definitions: type in "define mass" and we get a standard definition, without having to go to a web site.

If you want to track the flight of an aeroplane, type in it's name and number in: "United flight 654" and it will give you the departure and arrival times and if it's on schedule!!

To find the capital of a country, type in (eg)  "capital of Zambia"
Want to know the number of people in Yemen? Type in "population of Yemen"

To find how much 500 yen is in dollars, just type in (eg) "500 yen in dollars"

To check the weather, type in "weather" and your town. Include the country if you are outside of the USA. eg.: "weather Durban South Africa"

To get stock prices and a graph for a share, type it's code in the search box, eg "SNV"

And some other useful tips:

Add a tilde ~ before your search phrase to get related terms, eg "~horse"  will return results for horse, pony, stallion etc.
Add the text &imgtype=face at the end of your image search phrase if you only want faces of people and not all the other things, like when you are searching for a lady called "Rose" you don't want all the other flowers and stuff to appear. eg : "Rose&imgtype=face "
These things come in really handy at times, especially when the boss is breathing down your neck and you need an answer fast!

I hope this is helpful to you..

HIDDEN GEM OF THE KWAZULU NATAL SOUTH COAST -

A mere half-hour south of Scottburgh in KwaZulu Natal is the most well kept secret of the South Coast. With a good tarred / paved road all the way to our destination, we were amazed to find Ifafa Beach Caravan Park is right on the ocean, as there is no road or railway line between the Park and the beach. The cherry on top is that the access from the Park leads directly to what we believe is the best tidal pool on the entire KwaZulu Natal Coast. The tidal pool is safe for small children as it has a sand approach and at high tide the waves come over the rear wall to the delight of the teenagers, but only small waves at the front for the toddlers to enjoy. Either side of the pool are shallow rock pools populated with tiny fish. North and south of the rock pools, are sand beaches for surf fishing; and if you catch nothing, you can eat at Johnno's Restaurant in the Park. Johnno's has a first class menu at reasonable prices. The food is wonderful and there is also a take-away option at the Park Superette. The superette sells most shop items, as well as charcoal, wood, ice and bait. There are 2 freshwater pools (One for toddlers) trampolines, a volley-ball court, swings, jungle gym and a see-saw. There is also a small games room with a mini pool table. The sites are all neatly divided with hedges to give privacy and avoid spill-overs from neighbours. The family ablution block is clean and has a wc, bath and shower per bathroom. The gardens are well kept and the sites well grassed. The park also has a small Laundromat. It is a very safe area, but there is security at night and the 2 gates are locked. The only problem we encountered was a lack of shade, as many of the trees are still small. The shaded sites under the large trees are snapped up in the summer months. Once the younger trees gain some height, this problem will be solved. The pub in Johnno's has a large screen for the rugby and other sport fixtures, so no need to rush off home. Most campers are loathe to say goodbye.  Paradise, once found, is not easy to leave!
If you are not a camper, don't despair. You can go down to Ifafa Beach for a Sunday afternoon drive, a swim and a fantastic lunch. You won't regret the decision!

MINI APPS

MINI APPS are small, quick loading computer programs that are designed to do one or two small, but useful tasks.

For example, a program to work out your home loan, showing you how much you can save by slightly increasing your repayments or injecting a lump sum into your mortgage. And how long it will take to pay off, and what your repayment is going to be for various loan amounts.

The idea of these MINI APPS is to keep them cheap enough for people to buy how ever many of them they need without getting out of pocket. The aim is profit by quantity, not by charging for bells and whistles that will never be used.

Because the programs are small, they can easily be emailed to clients within minutes.

The emailed cost will be standardised at  :


US$                           4.00 
Pounds Sterling.     2.00
ZA Rand                 25.00


There is an option to have the programs delivered on a CD disk, but this will carry an additional cost per CD, dependant on which country you live in.
Quick RF Calculator - quickly convert from dBm to Volts, to dBuV, to Watts.  Useful for electronics technicians.
