vixy.net : Online FLV Converter : Download online videos direct to PC / iPod / PSP. It’s free.
This is one of the most excellent I have visited lately. It converts your youtube/google videos to a format that is playable on iPods, iPhones, mobiles etc. It even works, it’s free and it’s online! There’s a desktop version with ads, if you prefer that, and I guess that can be used for converting whatever you have on your harddrive as well.
Watching movies on your cell phone is a pretty nerdy and tedious task, if you ask me, still, I have done it now. And it sort of was ok to watch a movie on the train. I have also found, that there’s a lot of instructional videos to download and look at. Another good feature is to catch up on tv show watching. Right now I am working my way through Family Guy! I bought the DVD and converted with 3gp converter. Works as a charm.

I read today’s lifehacker posts, and found this little gem. Amazon.com has provided a wish list for some time, but now you can also add items from outside the amazon webshop. Check it out on http://www.amazon.com/gp/wishlist/get-button/
Oh – and my list is at http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/2ANIOB8897ZIR in case you remember my birthday.

A rather cool magazine online. It’s about mathematics in the wide sense, as it also covers quite a lot of physics and science.

When a Syllabus Is Not Your Own – Chronicle.com.
Just thought I’d share this link that I found on the Academhack blog. It’s actually pretty interesting reading about the emotions the writer went through when she discovered that another professor had stolen (?) her entire syllabus. What do you think? Can anyone just take your reading list and use them for their own courses?
