Linux Cheat Sheet
Linux is a great operating system with a lot of tools built-in. It can be tricky to learn all the various commands.
The folks over at PC & Network put together a very cool Linux Command Cheat Sheet. It's not a typical cheat sheet that you see all over the internet. They walk you through all the most commonly used Linux commands and explain why you would use them.
here are hundreds - possibly thousands - commands available in Linux. Remembering every command is not possible and it can be quite daunting for a novice user. The good news is that you don't need to remember each command. Only a very small subset of those commands are used on a day-to-day basis.
This cheat sheet offers a set of commands that you can use for quick reference. I have prepared this Linux Commands Cheat Sheet as a quick reference for both experienced and basic users.

Optimizilla is "yet another" online image compressor. It's an easy way to drag and drop 20 images.
It's good, however it doesn't beat the compression done by shortpixel.com. In my test, I compressed the same image using Optimizilla and ShortPixel. Optimizilla was able to compress the image 13% while ShortPixel was able to compress the image by 65%.
This online image optimizer uses a smart combination of the best optimization and lossy compression algorithms to shrink JPEG and PNG images to the minimum possible size while keeping the required level of quality.
Upload up to 20 images. Wait for the compression to finish. Click thumbnails in the queue for quality setting. Use the slider to control the compression level and mouse/gestures to compare images.

DTV Reception Maps
Did you know that the FCC has a handy chart to show the channels that you should be able to pick up using your Over The Air TV antenna? This is the DTV Reception Maps page on the FCC website.
The nice thing about this page is that it helps you figure out which size antenna that you should get.
I ran this at my address and can confirm that it is very accurate. We get the channels that we should be getting based on our antenna range.
Use this program to check for the DTV signals that are available at your location. Enter your address in the box below and click Go! The DTV coverage map will list all stations in your area.
Sometimes stations change the frequency on which they broadcast ' the channel a viewer selects to watch a particular station remains the same but the frequency that the viewer's television finds the station on changes -- requiring viewers who use an over-the-air antenna to rescan their tuners to locate the station's new signal.
