http://www.defraggler.com/

Cut and paste...

"From everyone here at Piriform, the company that brought you CCleaner and Recuva... we now bring you a file defragmentation tool... Defraggler!

It differs from other defrag tools on the market, by enabling you to quickly and simply defrag the files you want to, without having to process the whole drive. Simply run it, select the file and defragment in seconds. No more struggling with the Windows defragmentation tool!

And remember like all Piriform products, Defraggler is completely free for both corporate and individual use."

He hasn't posted the download yet,but I thought everyone would like to check it out.
Piriform has yet to let me down.

I'm aware of Roboform,but was wondering if there is a setting or extension that would allow me to login into sites
automatically like Opera's wand feature.I love Opera but have to admit sometimes i need to fire up Firefox and
this is a bit of a drawback,not a huge one,but annoying none the less.

13
I think i borked my system with some registry cleaning (never again) anyhow....
I'd hate do a complete reformat,does the system restore leave the machine sluggish after it "fixes" things?

14
I've already opted for the windows installer (newer) after trying for almost an hour.To tell the truth i can't tell the difference but it still irks me to no end.I always run as admin.Any one ever have this problem...with any application?

15

 I'm getting DSL tommorow,i've done alot of tweaks to services,registry,etc. and want to meet the DSL installation with a fresh reformatted install of XP,i'm strange that way.

Anyhow,i've invest a lot of time into some of my Opera Settings,my main concern is the Wand passwords.
I've lazy,any advice and or direction will be appreciated.

P.S.
I'm quite possibly the last Dial-up hold out on the planet,when MccDonald's wireless access is faster than
your home hook-up it's time to sell plasma.

The program is called RSSMate.RSSMate is a freeware rss/atom/podcast reader designed to be simple and straight forward.When i say simple,i mean RSSMate doesn't get into catagories and multiple layout schemes.When i say straight forward,i mean you punch in your feed link and it reads it.Done and done,no glitter but pure gold in my opinion.

Now,that being said and given my glorious opinion,this is where my opinion is coming from.I'm a user who doesn't use hundreds or thousands of feeds,i'm more into reading around twenty or thirty feeds,if that.If you are a user that reads somewhere in the range of fifty feeds and up,RSSMate might be too cumbersome for your needs.I believe it could handle it,but you might end up in "scrolling" hell.

https://www.joost.com/about.html

Joost is like a tivo,video type thing.Think youtube on steroids.
I actually don't use it,cause i don't have a  high speed connection and
that's what you need to get the full grunt of it.

Anyhow my invites are about to expire,so... i have two.PM me through the board,with your name,first,last,doesn't need to  be your real name,you can change that later,but your email needs to be legit,i promise i won't spam.


Ok,i only had two and i sent them out.Now if you feel like fishing for one,here is a tip use google blog search
http://blogsearch.go...mp;btnG=Search+Blogs

Joost has been supplying members with invites to give away and people are more than willing to pass them out.

Sorry if i didn't choose you,i only had two.But like i said it's almost a given if you use google's blog search,you
can even use an rss feed to be updated when ever the search term "Joost invite" is refreshed .

 Ok,my machine has two hard drives,one drive has Windows XP Pro and the other has nothing (or will have Ubuntu)

 Is it possible to boot from the second drive ?

Complete newbie to linux,and this is my primary machine so i don't want to bork it.

Any input is appreciated.

First off it's designed in flash,that bothers some,others,not so much.Either way it's an impressive use
of flash,a useful use of flash.Which if you think about it not too many people have done flash projects
that produce anything,just entertainment multimedia type stuff.

Draw online, save and share your painting. Export as SVG or SWF vector graphic. Free and Easy.
Worth a look.  :Thmbsup:

  A lot of you stream recording aficionados might appreciate this,i personally haven't used it but it looks interesting,what makes this stand out amongst the others is it's ability to tackle the RTMP protocols 

A bit pricey,but you'll have that ($39.95)

Cut and paste-

"“Replay Media Catcher is the first ever production software to be able to capture RTMP Streaming Flash streams used by many of the top-tier content sites,” said Bill Dettering, CEO of Applian Technologies. “These unprotected, unencrypted files have been previously impossible to record for your personal use, and now Replay Media Catcher makes it possible to archive and enjoy more great online video without having to be connected to the internet.”  "

For audio and music sites, Replay Media Catcher will grab the MP3s as they stream down to your PC. It works great with sites like:
MySpace™
Pandora™
Radio Blog Club™
Wolfgang's Vault™
and more!

For capturing online video, you can record from hundreds of popular places, including:
MySpace™
YouTube™
ABC™
NBC™
New York Times™
Reuters™
Metacafe™
And many, many more!

Just a heads up.

Source: http://www.vnunet.co...ive-messenger-serves

"The banners inside the Windows Live Messenger advertised Errorsafe, an application that claims to detect and repair computer problems. The software is notorious because it often gets installed without the user's permission and because it presents false security warnings that are intended to make the user purchase a licensed copy of the software."

It's been said a million times before but why does a chat program need ads in this day and age ?

"DALLAS — A recently discovered home movie showing President John F. Kennedy's motorcade shortly before his assassination was unveiled Monday on the Web site of a Dallas museum.

The silent, 8 mm color film is "the clearest, best film of Jackie in the motorcade," said Gary Mack, curator of the Sixth Floor Museum, which focuses on Kennedy's life and assassination."

But this site (it's a marketing communications company) blew my mind. :o
