We believe that Neo’s SafeKeys will increase your security, but users should know that there is no 100% way to defeat ALL malicious keyloggers (keyloggers, mouseloggers, screenloggers and network loggers), and Neo’s SafeKeys does not proport to deliver 100% protection.
Neo’s SafeKeys is a small program that helps to defeat keyloggers on unsecure computer terminals.
Neo’s SafeKeys is perfect for travel – use it in internet cafes, the office or even at home as protection against stealth keylogging programs that can be installed without your knowledge.

• Co-founder Larry Page says search engine has been losing out to micro-blogging site in battle to provide real-time information
• Chief executive hints that Google could go into partnership with Twitter"

Twitter Away Your Time seems like a good title for a presentation. -tp.
To start with this, type: "about:config " (without the quotes AND no space between the words/colon) in the Firefox address line.
If Firefox is fubar’d because you accidentally misconfigured about:config, you can fix it in one of two ways:
* Make a backup of your prefs.js file before you start editing. Then, if something goes wrong, you can restore it by copying it over the corrupt file.
* If you can’t restore via a backup prefs.js file, you can exit Firefox and issue the command firefox -safe-mode to bring up the Firefox Safe Mode screen. Then, just select Reset All User Preferences To Firefox Defaults. Note: This will restore all user preferences to their default values.
This hack requires a few steps. Search for pipelining in the filter and you should see:
network.http.pipelining: Change this to true.
network.http.proxy.pipelining: Change this to true.
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests: Change this to 8.
Now search for max-connections and you should see:
network.http.max-connections: Change this to 96.
network.http.max-connections-per-server: Change this to 32.
2: Disable antivirus scanning
This is only for the Windows version. If you’re downloading large files, this scanning can seriously slow things down. And since you will most likely scan the downloaded file anyway, you’ll probably want to disable this. Of course, if you are uber paranoid (not a bad trait for computing), you might want to leave this entry alone.
To disable antivirus scanning, search for scanWhenDone and you should see:
browser.download.manager.scanWhenDone: Change this to false.
If a popup window lacks the features of a browser window, Firefox will handle it like a popup. If you would prefer to open all windows, including popups, as new tabs, you need to tell Firefox in about:config. Search for new window and you will see three entries. Of those three entries, you will want to modify:
browser.link.open_newwindow.restriction: Change this to 0.
4: Spell checking in all fields
By default, Firefox checks spelling only in multiple-line text boxes. You can set it to check spelling in all text boxes. Search for spellcheckdefault and you should see:
layout.spellcheckDefault: Change this to 2.
5: Open search bar results in new tab
When you use the search bar, the results display in the current tab. This can be a nuisance because you will navigate out of the page you are currently in. To make sure Firefox always opens search results in a new tab, search for openintab and you should see:
browser.search.openintab: Change this to true.
6: Auto export bookmarks
In Firefox 3, bookmarks are automatically saved and exported for you. The only problem is that by default, they’re saved as places.sqlite instead of the more convenient bookmarks.html. To change this setting so that they can be easily re-imported, search for autoExportHTML and you should see:
browser.bookmarks.autoExportHTML: Change this to true.
7: Disable extension install delay
One of the few gripes I have with Firefox is the silly countdown you must endure every time you want to install an extension. Fortunately, this can be disabled. Search for enable_delay and you should see:
security.dialog_enable_delay: Change this to 0.
8: View source code in an external editor
When you need to view the source of a page, it opens up in browser popup. Most developers would probably like to have that opened in their favorite editor instead of having to cut and paste. To do this, there are two entries to modify. Search for view_source.editor and you will see:
view_source.editor.external: Change this to true.
view_source.editor.path: Change this to the explicit path to your editor of choice.
9: Get more add-on search results
When you do a search in the Add-on window, you’ll see just five results. You might find it more efficient to increase this number. Search for getAddons and you should see:
extension.getAddons.maxResults: Change this to 10 (or higher, if you want to see even more).
10: Redefine the Backspace button
Did you know you can configure Firefox to use the backspace button to either go back a page or go up a page? This keeps power users from having to go back and forth from the keyboard to the mouse. Search for backspace and you will see:
browser.backspace_action: Change this to 0 for previous page and 1 for page up.

A. Most likely, one or more of your drivers is not allowing itself to be unloaded.
-This, supposedly, is less of a problem in Windows 98 and Windows Me than in Windows 95 (most drivers are no longer unloaded when you shut down), but it still seems to trip up Windows from time to time.
-Try hitting Enter when it hangs to 'wake it up.'
-Try holding Shift while clicking Ok in the 'Shut Down' dialog - this might allow you to shut down faster, and bypass whatever is causing your system to hang.
-This can also happen if the sound file for Shutdown becomes corrupted. Double-click on the Sounds icon in Control Panel and remove or change the sound event for Shutdown."

You can reset the value of the Maximum Shadow Copy Storage space setting using the command:
vssadmin resize shadowstorage /for=<ForVolumeSpec> /on=<OnVolumeSpec> [/maxsize=<MaxSizeSpec>
On my problem system, I reset the Maximum Shadow Copy Storage space setting to 15GB using the command:
vssadmin resize shadowstorage /for=c: /on=c: /maxsize=15GB
Once the operation was complete, I restarted the system, and everything has been running normally since.
What's your take?If you have a Vista system that is mysteriously running low on disk space, you might want to use the VSSAdmin command-line tool to investigate and change the Maximum Shadow Copy Storage space setting.

Vista tries to determine what types of files you have in a folder and display them according to the file type. For example, if Vista thinks the files are photos, it will display them as thumbnails with columns for name, date taken, tags, etc. But sometimes it has a hard time figuring it out and uses the wrong template. You can easily change that by following these steps:
1. Right click the folder and select Properties.
2. Click the Customize tab.
3. In the drop-down box under "Use this folder type as a template," select the type of items you have in the folder (for example, Documents). You can also choose whether to apply the template to all the subfolders within the folder.
You can also set a default for all new folders to be displayed without a template by editing the registry. Here's how:
1. Start the Registry Editor
2. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Classes \ Local Settings \ Software Microsoft \ Windows \ Shell \ Bags
3. From the menu, click Edit > New > Key
4. Name the new key AllFolders (and keep this key selected)
5. From the menu, click Edit > New > Key
6. Name the new key Shell (and keep this key selected)
7. From the menu, click Edit > New > String Value
8. Name the new value FolderType, right-click it and choose Modify. Enter NotSpecified as the Value data
9. Close the registry editor

* Search.twitter - For now, monitoring twitter is a separate stream (Google seems to be adding twitter conversations to SERPs) - using the advanced search function allows you set-up very specific searches, even including geographic details. These searches produce RSS feeds and can then be subscribed to.
* tweetbeep.com - Similar to Google Alerts, but for twitter. Set-up search phrases and receive notification any time your phrases show up in twitter conversations.
* Boardtracker.com - focuses on the most popular bulletin board conversations and can turn up responses that don’t show up anywhere else. Some industries still have very heavy bulletin board use.
* Backtype.com - Backtype is a search engine of sorts that focuses on blog comments. Blog comments don’t often make it into the mainstream search results so this is a way to listen in on this set of content.
* Social Mention - this is a mashup search engine of many of the formats of content such as audio and video - I’ve found it a very nice way to turn up some mentions that don’t occur anywhere else.

The same thing goes for doing other business online. The Internet has changed the entire bill-paying process. I remember that my grandparents usually paid their bills in person. Even with the water bill or electric bill, they would go down to city hall or the nearest payment office, usually with cash, and hand over the money to a clerk. They liked that they immediately got a receipt as proof of payment, and didn't have to trust the post office to get it there on time.
My mom and dad, on the other hand, paid almost all of their bills by mail. Twice a month, dad would sit down with the checkbook and write out all the checks, address and stamp all the envelopes, and trek down to the post office or just leave them in our home mailbox to be picked up. Those were the days when your mailbox was on your front porch, not out at the curb where any and everyone could steal your mail. Dad believed that the Postal Service really lived up to its motto - "the mail must go through" - and back then, for the most part, they did. He was satisfied with his cancelled check as proof that he'd paid, even though it took a while before he got it back.
Today, many of us rarely ever write a check. We pay with credit or debit cards or authorize automatic bank withdrawals. I know some folks who never carry cash. We sit at home (or in a hotel room hundreds or thousands of miles away from home), log onto our computers, and pay our bills without having to write checks, buy stamps or use gasoline. Due date is tomorrow? No problem (at least with many accounts) - there's still plenty of time to pay it and avoid late charges.
Meanwhile, the payee doesn't have to worry about whether your check is good, and doesn't have to pay someone to do the time-consuming work of processing a hand written check. It's more convenient for them, it's more convenient for you, and everybody saves a little money. It's a win-win situation. Except when it's not.
There's one bill that I don't pay online; when it comes to my water bill, I still mail in a check even though the city has an online payment option. Why? Because they charge a ridiculous $2.50 processing fee for online payments. My electric company, gas company, credit card company and others that I pay online charge nothing extra to do so. A couple of times, with various one-time bill payments, I have run into minimal processing fees, on the order of 25 or 50 cents. The whole idea of online payments is that it automates things and makes it less expensive, so why is the city charging a premium to use their system? Is it because they think the people who would pay online probably have more discretionary income and therefore won't mind getting hit up for a little extra? Did they contract with some service to handle the processing and they're getting charged this fee to do it and passing it on to the customer? I don't know, but I know I'm not paying it.
Speaking of getting gouged, when I pay all those other bills online, I do it by credit card (except, of course, for the credit card bill itself). One reason to use a credit card is to get the cash-back rewards (it goes without saying that you also need to pay off the balance of the card at the end of every month so you don't get charged interest). But there's another reason: I've heard too many horror stories from people who authorized automatic payments directly from their banks, and then were unable to stop those payments when they cancelled the service. A friend of mine found that six months after cancelling a membership, the company was still withdrawing that money from her account. When she tried to cancel it through the bank, they told her that the company the payments were going to would have to cancel it, and that the only way she could stop it was to close her bank account and open a new one.
Of course, there are other ways to get gouged online. As mentioned, you can often find low prices from online outlets - but be sure you figure in the total cost. Some unscrupulous web retailers fail to show you the shipping and handling charges until you get all the way through the payment process and have already input your credit card information. That's like asking you for a blank check; in a few cases, I've seen shipping and handling costs that were four times the price of the item itself.
Something else to be careful about when you're buying online is to find out exactly what you're buying. There are some online camera stores that are notorious for advertising incredibly low prices on popular DSLRs, hundreds of dollars lower than the price of the same item on Amazon or at other legitimate outlets - but there's a catch. Sometimes the camera is a "gray market" import (sometimes euphemistically referred to as "international versions"), which means the manufacturer intended them to be sold in other countries where prices are lower. And what that means to the buyer is that the manufacturer won't honor the warranty, and you may find that the on-screen menus and the manuals are written in a foreign language.
Even if the camera is a "genuine U.S.A. model," some online retailers use another scam. That low, low price they quote, when you read the fine print, is for the body only. At an above-board store, "body only" means the lens doesn't come with it, but most digital camera bodies come with various accessories such as the battery and battery charger. These scammers take that stuff out of the box and charge you extra for it - which in many cases raises their price for the whole package so that it's equal to or higher than that same package from a more honest seller.
The key to protecting yourself from these types of scammers, without passing up the truly good deals that you can find online, is to carefully check out the reputation of any company you're considering doing business with, especially when you're spending hundreds or thousands of dollars for an expensive piece of electronics, jewelry or other high-dollar merchandise.

Get Windows XP's Backup utility to use recordable optical media | Microsoft Windows | TechRepublic.com
In this workaround, you direct the Backup utility to save the backup file in the CD Burning spool folder. You can then burn the backup to your recordable optical media. Here’s how:
* Launch Backup.
* Select the Backup tab and choose the files that you want to back up.
* Choose File from the Backup Destination drop-down list.
* In the Backup Media or File Name text box, type the following path:
C:\Documents and Settings\
As soon as the backup starts, you’ll see a balloon appear in the notification area that alerts you that you have files waiting to be written to the CD. Once the backup is complete, click the balloon to open Windows Explorer and then click the Write These Files To CD command in the CD Writing Tasks section of the task pane.
Note: The only drawback to this technique is that you cannot make Backup span large backup files across multiple CDs. As such, you’ll need to ensure that your backup file will fit on one CD.

Writer's enter on-line contests to write a short story in under five hundred words. Folks upload twelve-second videos for the web. The site's motto at 12seconds.tv is “Keeping it pithy since 2008.” Pithy, indeed. There is no story in many of the videos I viewed. They are visual scribbles, usually depicting a baby and a dog, or some woman on vacation blowing a kiss to her sweetheart.
Let's look ahead a few years. Let's look past instant texting on the cell phone, smaller and smaller postings on twitter-like sites, and shorter and shorter videos. Most of this kind of stuff will find its way onto cell phones, and eventually might creep into our television programming. A five minute situation comedy might emerge, along with five minute reality shows and short, educational shows. We will pack twelve times as much programming into each hour of television viewing. This will require more writers, producers, directors and advertisers. Quality be damned. It's quantity and brevity they're after.
