Surely that a lot of times you have found webs impossible of be read, due to the color combinations used.
For that reason I've programmed a script that can transform any webpage making it more accessible. If you drag and drop this link to the bookmarks or favorite bar of your browser, and you click on it, when you find a web with colors that doesn't allow read it clearly, the web will change their color with the colors of Computable minds and the accesibility will be better in the majority of cases. If you want that the script will be executed always in all the webs, you can install it, having activated the Firefox extension Grease monkey, or using Chrome, and clicking in this link. Read all about of "How to see better the web pages and improve its accessibility?"

Today I'm going to dedicate the post to explain some basic concepts about the files that the 99% of the people that use a computer don't understand it very well.
Some users know that the last letters that there are at the end of a file (the extension), identifies the type of file, so, for instance, an archive ended in .JPG is a type of file of image and another ended in .GIF is a different image format with other characteristics. This, is true for most cases, but causes confusion in the cases where the extension isn't of a concrete format, unless of a format container. Read all about of "Differences between extension and format in a file"

Map of Internet
Internet is formed by a tangle of cables and routers. These routers, have the mission of route the information through that spider web in order to arrive to its destiny, although really Internet is organized in a hierarchy of routers that goes from the router of our house to the router that send the data of a entire country.
