AlertBear RSS Reader

So I finally decided to check out AlertBear (http://www.alertbear.com/). Let me put it short and say that BrotherS's hype was not unjustified.
I thought I would give you a quick overview over how AlertBear works and why it might be worth your time and attention to check it out.

Light Alloy limited-time discount

It's a really full-featured and lightwieght video and multimedia player.  I primarily use MPC for my videos, but I'd also like a few more customizability options and Light Alloy is great for that.



Here's a cool multimedia player on Summer special for $9.95.

Dear DC: I have a problem with some keys

Weird thing happens sometimes... Occasionally it seems my keys are "switched around" on the keyboard, for instance when I want to type the '?' character by pressing Shift+the key wit '+' and '?' on it, I get the '_' character. this happens with most of the special character-keys, like -,:'*() etc.

This doesn't happen on a global scale on the system, only in some applications (has happened in Miranda and Opera so far). When I restart the application, the problem is gone.

Any idea what could be causing this?

Zoom Player and Other Media Players

APP NAME:                    Zoom Player Professional
APP URL:                       http://www.inmatrix.com
APP Version Reviewed:     5.00 Preview 7
Price: $0 to $36 depending on edition


For the past few years, I have been a long time and devoted winamp user. But as of lately, winamp development has ground to a halt. Due to numerous bugs, like fast forwarding an avi file causing the player to freeze, I have begun the hunt for a new media player. Winamp was beautiful in that it could handle everything I threw at it with the exception of DVD playback.

Enter Zoom Player. Upon discovering this program, I was skeptical that any program could hold up to the torture I put my player through. However, I was soon to find out that I would be pleasantly surprised. Zoom player not only handled every format via a plugin (so you can customize it to your liking) I threw at it (RM, RAM, RV, QT, AVI, MPEG, Any audio format, AND DVD PLAYBACK), but it did it with class.

This is a rather large "mini" review by josh, who also managed to organize a discount for donationcoder members and get some copies donated for us to give away.

Virtualization Tools - What's Free, What's Not and What's it do?

As a follow-up to a recent irc discussion, mouser asked someone (I volunteered) to write up the status of the Virtual Machine Software in the world today.  Or at least the world as we know it.  :P

Read about the differences between VmWare, VirtualPC, Parallels, Xen, Boch, and the different versions of each..
