Flickr is a great web site for viewing and posting pictures of all types as all of you probably know, but how do you get the best use out of Flickr?
This blog has a post that answers many questions on how to get the most out of the Flickr web site.

Since we are talking about Flick, we might as well mention the best search tool to find pictures on Flick.
Go over to www.compfight.com and give it a try for yourself. Be sure to look at the options.

Next talk about youtube.com. Most of the videos there are in poor resolution or leave a lot to be desired.
Here is a good way to search youtube.com to find only the videos that can be viewed in high resolution.
Try this on your next youtube.com search: site:youtube.com “watch in normal quality watch in high quality” and then put in your search criteria.
You should see at the bottom of each video an option to watch in high quality.
Example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWbu5R5N7J0 (from a video game)

Since my economy is in the pits and I suppose yours might be in a similar situation, then go over to this site and check out the deals.
It gives you their hottest deals or you can search for a deal.
