Firefox Add-ons – Flash Game Maximizer

Considering that Flash games are hosted all over the place, and rarely with a ubiquitous user interface, you’re likely to run into a good number of them that must be played in whatever space they’ve been given on a Web page. With Flash Game Maximizer, however, you don’t have to worry about this at all.

Macintosh File Services for Windows Server 2008


This is quite a bad news that Microsoft dropped File Services for Macintosh from Windows Server 2008.

You’ll have to persevere with SAMBA or look at 3rd party alternatives such as..

The best antivirus software for 2009


What is the best antivirus software for 2009 and why? I saw the same question but it was several years old. has the answer changed?

I would go with the AVG 8.x (current) product. It will give you all of the protection you need for the AV/Anti-spyware side.

I have never been a fan of any software FW product. Use the native XP/Vista FW on your computers and add a small Linksys FW/Router (hardware) at your incoming internet connection.

Microsoft Outlook 2003 – Auto Archive Read Receipts


Set up a rule to move them to a specified folder and mark as read.

1. First create the folder you want them to go to.

2. Then in outlook go to tools / Rules and Alerts.

3. Add a rule that moves all items that have “read” in the subject line to the folder you have created (you can also add an action to mark them as read)
Hope this helps
