    Now i am wanting to download some movies from various different sites like youtube, Google video clips, and a few other sites for my entertainment at house. I’ve downloaded an extension from Media Converter for Chrome, but I actually don’t find it anywhere. Can someone suggest an extension to permit me to download online videos?.

    Everybody says you can’t move an initial Tumlbr blog page without deleting the account, but what about a secondary blog? I have two accounts, one which I use and one that I simply started. I actually don’t use the main blog around the old one, but I actually do use a supplementary blog on the same account. Can there be any way I can move that secondary blog page to my new account as a secondary blog as well?. Thanks!.
