Find open-source alternatives to commercial software

There are great […]

Office 2007 compatibility pack released-at 28 megs!

I jumped on the Office 2007 bandwagon pretty early.  Not right away, but I knew I would like it from the early betas.  One problem, though, is that Office 2007 started using XML-based format.  Great for Office 2007 users (the file sizes are much smaller), bad if you work with the rest of the world […]

Firefox 2.0.4 is out, sorta

If you’re feeling adventurous, GHacks tells us that Firefox 2.0.4 is out. I downloaded it, installed it, and everything seems to be hunky dory. Give it a shot early or just wait until the update is pushed out.

Need a free ISO burner?

Sometimes, okay often, I download ISO files I need to burn onto CD or DVD. Generally these are Linux builds that I’m trying out, but you can also backup your computer and save that as an ISO. An ISO, btw, is a disk image file. It’s a compact version that is expanded onto a disk […]

For all of us who made the jump to Vista or got a machine with Vista pre-installed, you might know that the only third-party firewall that is compatible with Vista has been a Symantec product. I’m not a huge fan of Norton Internet Security. In fact I tend to cringle when I […]
