There are many occassions where you would like to have access to another computer a distance away, without physically there in front of the computer. How do you do it? The answer is remote access.
There are various remote access software available, some even support access from mobile devices. But our interest today is to find the easiest and cheapest solution. What could be cheaper than free? Yes, there is one very widely used remote access software which is absolutely free! It’s none other than TightVNC.
TightVNC is a free remote access software based on the popular VNC software (which is not free). With TightVNC, you can see the desktop of a remote machine and control it with your local mouse and keyboard, just like you would do it sitting in the front of that computer!
This is so cool, now can I have some screenshots please. I want to see if they look good enough for my computer. Yes, of course, here you are.
The picture above shows TightVNC in action. So cool, now you can control the remote PC without having to move your lazy butt to the remote computer in the other room!
This screenshot shows the new file transfer window where you can transfer files to and from the remote computer.
Go check out TightVNC and try it, you have nothing to lose as it’s completely free. It’s suitable for remote administration, remote customer support, education, and for many other purposes.
I believe almost all of the time you use Google to search for anything you would like to find on the Internet. In fact, Google is used by millions of people every day in more than 80 languages, it has expanded beyond just searches to encompass shopping, news, blogs and even a service that blocks pop-up ads (the Google toolbar).
Now Google is a noun, adjective and verb!
But, have you ever wondered what are the other search engines on the Internet? Of course there are the more widely used such as Yahoo, MSN and Ask.com. Can you name me a few more?
What about give ChaCha a try today? ChaCha is a human-powered search engine as it employs people to help users sift through the results. This is done using a familiar chat interface on the site. Basically, you chat with the human guide on what you are trying to look for, and the human will answer your questions and guide you! Isn’t this great! My test shows that it’s a little slow as we need to wait for the response from the guide. However, chating with the guide was so much fun that I almost forgot what I went there for!
It’s really frustating if you would like to save a really nice gif animation file in an email you received in Microsoft Outlook. This is simply because Microsoft Outlook does not allow you to save gif animations within an email, though I think Outlook Express does. I think Outlook has this limitation most likely due to security concerns since gif animation might be a virus or some harmful scripts in diguise.
Anyway, is there a way you can force Outlook to save an animation as a gif animation and not as a BMP graphic?
Of course, there is a way. The easiest layman way is just to forward the email containing the animations to yourself again, exit Outlook and then start Outlook Express and receive the email with the animation in Outlook Express. Or forward it to a web-based email account such as your Yahoo or Gmail account and you can certainly save your gif animation files from these accounts.
This sounds good, but is there a better way? Of course, if you do not mind playing around with a few advanced settings. Microsoft guru Robert Sparnaaij has made a step-by-step guide at his How-to-Outlook site: Save Embedded Pictures in Their Original Format.
Not too long ago, Forbes, launched what’s bound to be a fresh annual feature with their first ever Web Celeb 25. It’s a list of the biggest, brightest and most influential people on the Internet. From penniless bloggers to geek entrepreneurs, these are the people who are capturing eyes, influencing opinion and who are famous for creating or appearing in Internet-based content. Of course they must be highly recognizable on the Internet.
Now, let’s check this interesting list to see who tops the list. Whether hot and sexy look plays a role to help you get onto the list.
When I looked at my blog, it looked so plain and boring. Yes, I know that. So, I looked into my hard drive to see if I can find something to brighten up the site, and baby look what I have found!
Linux certainly never looked so good, not in a million years! Hahaha…
Any idea where I can get this sexy linux shirt? Not that I want to wear it, but I know someone who will look very good in it!
