How Addicted To Coffee Are You?
Do you enjoy the occasional mocha or do you dive head first into a pot of drip every single morning? I like my coffee very much. Doesn't matter what brand or type or what time of the day. I never considered myself addicted to coffee but it seems I was wrong. I am addicted.

Stop hidden malware....
Even though there might not be any spyware on your computer, hackers can still exploit your data streams. Tom Merrit explains how to stop them.
checked both of my computers and they are ADS free :)

Whilst I have never used this Ausie logic defrag tool but anyone considering it should first try this Power Defragmenter by one of our own forum members, RejZoR that GUI in combination with contig

Power Defragmenter - RejZoRs - eXcessive-software.eu.tt Site I think it is blisteringly fast.

Worth a second look:
This may solve some of the network and wifi connection problems if read about
in this forum lately.

Network Magic


Click for enlarged image.

Like it or not, running a home network turns you into a network administrator. If something needs troubleshooting or setup,
you have to take care of it.

Enter Network Magic. This excellent network utility assists you with many common--and uncommon--network chores.
Wizards walk you through tasks such as adding a new device to the network, fixing a broken network connection,
sharing a printer or folder, and setting up wireless protection and encryption.

The software digs far deeper than you might imagine. For example, it scrutinizes every PC connected to your network
and reports on the state of its security--such as whether automatic updates are available. It draws a map of your network
and all of the devices on it, and provides detailed looks at each device. It reports on your network activity, too,
including details about when devices connect. You also get a bandwidth tester for measuring your current Internet broadband speed.

Network Magic is available in both free and for-pay versions. The free version includes most of the features you'll need,
such as repairing broken connections, issuing security alerts, and monitoring network activity. The paid version,
which costs between $24 and $40 (depending on the number of PCs on your network), delivers daily reports of Internet activity,
supports remote access to your network's files, and includes other advanced features.
(I use the pro version but, the FREE version does an excellent job.)

As is the case with most network utilities, you'll have to instruct your firewall to permit the program to connect to the Internet so that it can work.

This one alows you to read/write to your Linux partitions(ext2,ext3) in ms windows. Reiser file system isn't supported though !
Ext2 Installable File System For Windows

This one allows you to read/write to your NTFS partitions in Linux:
