BigAssMessage: Get Attention By Sending Full Screen Messages: "BigAssMessage: Get Attention By Sending Full Screen Messages

Getting your message across to hard-headed, insensitive people can be pretty tough especially when you have to do it online. The best way to let them know what you mean is to get their attention first. BigAssMessage helps us with that by letting you create a message with big, catchy, if not intimidating fonts that you can easily send to others."

Gmail to alert users to suspicious activity | Security - CNET News

Gmail to alert users to suspicious activity | Security - CNET News: "Google launched a new feature in Gmail on Wednesday that will alert users when the system detects suspicious activity that might indicate the account has been compromised.

Gmail already displays information at the bottom of the in-box showing the time of the last activity on the account and whether it's still open in another location. But people often don't think to check that information, Will Cathcart, a Gmail product manager, said in an interview on Wednesday.

So Google is taking the extra step of displaying a warning to users in the form of a big banner that says 'warning your acct was accessed from...' and which specifies a geographic region where the account was accessed when unusual activity was detected."

It’s the @ symbol on the computer keyboard, which is an essential component of every e-mail address. Millions of us type it each day, usually without thinking about it. Yet the Museum of Modern Art in New York has deemed it to be such an important example of design that the @ has been officially admitted to its architecture and design collection"

It would allow a customer to walk a cart full of groceries or other goods past a scanner on the way to the car; the scanner would read all items in the cart at once, total them up and charge the customer's account while adjusting the store's inventory."

Keeping NiMH batteries in the freezer can boost battery life by 90%."

Fix the Windows Clock So It Syncs Properly - washingtonpost.com

Windows 7 may be the best Windows yet, but it suffers from the same annoying problem that plagued Vista and even XP: Its clock doesn't keep good time.

That's because the default time server Windows uses to fetch the current time, well, bites. I don't know if this is because of server overload or what (obviously there are a lot of Windows systems out there, all looking for a clock fix), but I'm tired of getting the same cryptic error when I try to sync manually.

Raising the Bar on Remote Access:

1. Right-click the taskbar clock and choose Adjust date/time.

2. Click the Internet time tab, then the Change settings button. (This might be a little different in Windows XP.)

3. Erase what's in the Server field and replace it with pool.ntp.org

4. Click Update now. In a few seconds, Windows' clock should get synchronized.

5. Click OK, then OK again, and you're done.

Apricorn Aegis NetDock - SlipperyBrick.com: "You’ll want to check out the Apricorn Aegis NetDock if you mostly use a netbook. This USB-powered device will offer you an extra four USB 2.0 ports. Two of them are powered and you also get a dual-layer DVD burner and a 2.5 SATA hard drive enclosure for future expansion.

It’s very portable too, measuring just 6.25″ x 5.75″ x 2.125″. It will cost you $89 and there’s a model that comes with a 5400 RPM 500GB hard drive already installed for another $100. Not bad at all."

Add on to that NETBOOK. Make it just as big and heavy as a laptop and defeat the whole idea of a netbook by buying add-ons.

Newegg: Get your fake Intel CPUs here | Adventures in IT - InfoWorld

Newegg: Get your fake Intel CPUs here | Adventures in IT - InfoWorld: "Newegg: Get your fake Intel CPUs here
Can you say 'quality control'? If so, you're one up on online retailer Newegg, caught selling bogus Intel i7-920 processors" Actually, it gets better (or worse, depending on your perspective). According to photographs posted at the HardOCP forums where the story originally surfaced, the "chip" came with a "heat sink" that was simply a blob of molded plastic. The CPU fan, visible through a cutout in the box's packaging, was a decal glued to the "heat sink." In other words, it was a picture of a fan, not an actual fan. The "chip" itself appears to be a piece of tin with perforations where you'd normally find circuits.

Temp folder files

A reader recently noted that when he ran Disk Cleanup in XP and selected the option to delete temporary files, there were still hundreds of files left in his Temp folder. The reason is that the Disk Cleanup utility only removes files in the Temp folder if they're over a week old. If you need to get rid of them right away, you can delete them manually:

1. Click Start | Run
2. In the Run box, type %temp% to quickly open the Temp folder
3. In the Temp folder displayed in Windows Explorer, press CTRL+A to select all files.
4. Press the Delete key.
You may have to reboot in order to delete some files.

Burn is a simple application that slips right into place. In fact, it’s so simple, it’s crazy. I messed around with it a bit by dragging an AVI and told it to burn a video DVD. I thought it would produce an error of some kind because only MPG files can be used. You know what Burn returned? “Would you like me to convert it for you?” I can’t believe this app is free."
