I just got finished tinkering with a free program called Clipdiary I saw in Smart Computing (July 2008, Vol. 19, Iss.7, Pg. 26). It’s basically an “extension”, if you call it that, to the Windows clipboard. What’s so special about it? Well, it remembers everything you “RC & S” (Right-Click & Save) into a little .sql file on your PC. Once you install it, you can press Ctrl+D to open and close it. I find it handy if you’re doing things like uploading videos and/or images on multiple sites.
Here’s a bad video of me messing with it.

So, here’s what is on my mind, the one person who’s “reading” this.
We spend good money on good antivirus programs like McAfee, Nortons, and NOD32. But, we all know one program don’t really cut it. If you didn’t know that, shame on you, meatheat. What I meant by that is that, depending on what program you use, it might not catch most viruses. Usually, and you can do this, you can add the free version of AVG and install it. Think of it as like a backup. AVG will catch some viruses that the paid protection may actually miss.
You may or may not know but, there are free online scanners that you can actually use as well. Quick math: the program you pay for + the free AVG + the online scanners = 3 and over virus scanners. So, just how easy is it? Well, most of them will require you to use Internet Explorer (IE) but, all you have to do is install some ActiveX and that’s it. Best thing is that some will delete your infected files while others will list off what and where infections so you can manually remove them…
or at least try to.
So, I suggest you give what I said a shot.
I hate Elmo. That was a random freebie.

I have to say, even tho WordPress.com is giving people free blog accounts (and who don’t like free shit?), I have to protest a couple of “demands”, if you want to call them that.
1. Google AdSense – Yes, this is a free service but I do question why can’t we add some Google ads. Everyone does want to make a little something, right?
2. External Codes – Ok, you can post videos and images but what can’t we embed other external scripts like Twitter, Pownce, and FriendFeed? It’s like WP is saying “Hmm… these are features people use alot but FUCK THE PEOPLE!”. In a nice way, of course.
That’s all I have to say about that.
