Visits


31/12/2016     -      From tomorrow, New Years Day 2017, I plan to use this Site, and only this site, with rare exceptions, for any new articles, informations etc.
Due to failing health it's no longer possible to carry on the Web log sites (Blogs) named below.
Now and then possibly, but not on a regular basis. They will still exist, that's the nature of the Internet but this is the place for new articles as and when and if, I do them!

****************           

This particular page is there to give you the ease of choosing..! You can find a list of articles on the left hand side of this page - just click on whichever you want to read.
From the various Web Sites created and maintained by iwmpop(mr le marquis du Galipot) there are Photo Sites, Slideshows, Videos (pretty bad, but I'm improving..!),  Article Sites, Forum Sites, modest advice sites, news Sites, Humourous - Serious - sarcastic (mildly) - Life actualities - in brief a bit of everything!
Not all the sites are daily, in fact none of them are daily, but they are added to on a fairly regular basis, some much more than others.
At the bottom of this page, you can find some photo links "stations in the life of mr le marquis (iwmpop)" - these will be added to.
You can even find music to download or just listen to on You Tube -
 I'll be adding to these links too) - and the majority of photos can be downloaded for your OWN use. If you are Professional, the rights of Authorship apply - contact me on:      iwmpop@gmail.com

Chez mr le Marquis:  http://marquisdugalipot.blogspot.com
One of the regularly updated pages, almost daily, with a bit of everything...! This site is mainly in English.

Vauvert Village:    http://www.vauvertvillage.blogspot.com
This Site is also updated on a very regular basis. It concerns itself mainly with items of interest in France, with up to date photos of the events in a small Southern French village. This Site is mainly in French.

L'Hermitage: a blogsite on which iwmpop ruminates on modern day living amongst other things....http://lermitage-monrefuge.blogspot.fr/    

Gourmandise de mr le marquis: Recipes and articles on food - drink and related subjects
http://gourmandisedemrlemarquis.blogspot.fr/

iwmpop or Ian Mitchell: (Google search)
A page which gives some ideas about the creator of all these websites and various personal articles.  Mainly in French:

PHOTOS & VIDEOS:

Some photo Sites:

http://community.webshots.com/user/iwmpop      -  Webshots galleries.

   
https://photos.google.com/u/0/  -  Thousands of photos on Google Picasa (see 1st paragraph above for downloading/use of these photos)

http://www.fotocommunity.de/pc/pc/mypics/1177397  -  German photographic site, you can find 1st class (and better!) photos, including a few from iwmpop. Change language on the page possible.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/12946896@N05/  - The well known, worldwide photo stocking, presenting and transferring/searching for images. This is my presentation at the moment.

Some video Sites:
My videos I readily admit, are not the greatest, but that is basically due to the equipment I'm forced to use...! (At least - that's my excuse) They are getting better, and I hope to be able to invest in better equipment in time. Any contributions (tax free) will be appreciated! Thanks to Mrs Gloria MARZOCCA (Tina's mother) who offered me a new and good camera my videos should be getting better!

http://video.google.com/videosearch?q=iwmpop&emb=1&aq=f# - Google Video
I don't yet have many videos on this site.

http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=iwmpop&view=videos  -  The most looked at site for my videos. In fact you can find Power point presentations here, together with videos.

http://www.youtube.com/my_videos   -   This isn't the same as the one above! This particular page was created for trials by mrlemarquis, in preparation for the launch of extraits from his own "home movies"  - a project which will (hopefully) take off seriously in 2014 - As above - contributions in tax free manner are very welcome...! This will be, probably, the address to find yourself  - if you are or have been an associate or acquaintance of iwmpop or mrlemarquis in the past.

http://www.dailymotion.com/iwmpop   -   The video site which contains the most of my "little" videos - mainly in France and of a local nature.

http://www.franglo.com/classifieds/index.php
"Voipbuster" is a Web based Telephone and SMS service, similar to Skype, except it is much more lightweight, often FREE, if you buy credits it's cheaper than Skype, and PARTICULARLY - It's BUG FREE - unlike Skype:
http://www.voipbuster.com/en/free.html
"Granny tips" - As my Doctor said , "cramps in bed? Put a lump of soap (savon de Marseilles) under the sheets" - it worked! On this Site there are thousands of tips from Granny's days that cost very little or nothing! All aspects of life are covered....(available in French and German as well.)
http://www.granny-tips.co.uk/
"Wiktionnaire" - the well known Web Dictionary which you can take part in!

FOR YOU  - IN PARTICULAR FOR YOUR PC......!

So many things to do, so many programmes needed! 
That can cost a fortune, just for a few programmes that might or might not work as you want, and that in any case you're only going to use "now and then" - No, no, no - there are many places on the Web where you can find FREE programmes, every bit as good as the expensive to buy ones! Of course, some are limited time trials, but the advantage is that if they don't work as you wish - well, throw them out, all you've wasted is your time...!
This link is VERY detailed, if you can't find it here, where can you find it........? You'll find links to other Sites offering "freebies" - Sites you probably already know about, but you'll also find many, many Sites and Programmes you didn't even know you needed.....!
'CCleaner' - old name - 'Crap Cleaner.....Both free and payable both good.
Just Google Search 'CCleaner' and download it.....!
http://www.moreofit.com/similar-to/www.freewareplanet.net/Top_10_Sites_Like_Freewareplanet/
AND...As if the above wasn't enough, here's something else...GIVEAWAY! The idea is that every day, for 24 hours, a programme is GIVEN AWAY - FREE - GRATIS - Gratuit - NO SCUDOS NEEDED! Yes, there are many of these free giveaways which are on a "trial" basis, but you never know!
This Website is available in many languages. Change possible on the page.
Cette Website est en plusieurs langues - changer sur la page.
http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/about/
(Tips, help, forums, free programmes etc....)
I never give links to sites offering programmes that cost...! Nor to Sites that I haven't tried myself! There are a couple who SELL products, particularly interesting for the American readers (postage in USA is free on "Worldstart")
http://forum.worldstart.com/index.php
File "Hippo" is only one of many sites, like "CNet" and others, but I've tried them with success and no problems...
http://www.filehippo.com/
"01 Net" - A Site with lots of free programmes of all types. This particular page is to download the best, most unobtrusive Anti-Virus programme for your PC - "AVG Free", but you can visit other pages on the site and discover many programmes usable for all sorts of purposes:
http://www.01net.com/telecharger/windows/Securite/antivirus-antitrojan/fiches/24345.html
I would also suggest using occasionally a " Rootkit" scan (Google search "Free Rootkit scans")- You'll find something...like this..for example:
http://www.sophos.com/products/free-tools/sophos-anti-rootkit.html
(I haven't tried this one, so no guarantee!)

Windows live Care: Something FREE from Windows (well for a trial period anyway) - Yes that exists...! This only works from "Internet Explorer" as do "Microsoft Updates".
I use this programme if there is something really bad announced (like recently the "Conficker" worm). The programme is rather long to load, and you must delete any other Anti Virus programme. It is also much more obtrusive than AVG Free, but if something goes wrong, I suppose you could always sue Microsoft!
http://onecare.live.com/standard/en-gb/default.htm

OK - folks, it's lunchtime, I'm hungry!
This page will be continued and added to in the future and in an ongoing fashion.
Don't forget - you can always 'Google search' Ian Mitchell or iwmpop or even Ian Watson Mitchell.....That will give you other activities of mine.

Bonne Surf!      Good surfing!   Don't forget - keep the Internet clean....!
