IZArc-Free Compress Utility

Posted on March 30, 2009. Filed under: Computer, Freebies, Softwares, Windows/7 | Tags: , , , , |


            IZArc is definitely one of the best archiving utilities out there. Compatible with a huge number of archive formats, all the major are represented, as well as  7Z(from 7-ZIP), BH(Black Hole), BIN,  ISO, JAR, TAR among others It can create archives for many of the formats it can read, too, including 7z and TAR. It doesn’t, however, create GZ archives.

            

        IZArc supports archive encryption as well. AES 128-, 192-, and 256-bit encoding and PKZip 2.0 both are available. The app offers a reasonable range of context-menu options in Explorer, although not as many as some of its competitors. The user interface is more similar to WinZip’s than some other alternative archivers, with big, obnoxiously colored icons making it clear to everybody

                         

               

        Overall, IZArc is an excellent example of a third-party publisher supporting multiple formats and options under one roof.No matter what archiver(s) you are already using, IZArc is a "must try" for sure. If you’ll like it, keeping it won’t cost you a single penny.

AbiWord-Free MS word Alternative

Posted on March 28, 2009. Filed under: Computer, Freebies, Windows/7 | Tags: , , , |


         Microsoft Word is so widely used that many of us forget that there are alternatives. Even though most users only ever use a small percentage of Words potential, they feel uncomfortable using any other word processing applications and end up sticking with what they know. The trouble is that word is not small enough to be taken on the road and if you need an application that can be stored on a USB stick, it may be time to begin looking at other options.

      AbiWord Portable is the lightweight AbiWord word processor packaged as a portable app, so you can edit your documents on the go. You can place it on your USB flash drive, iPod, portable hard drive or a CD and use it on any computer, without leaving any personal information behind.

            

       AbiWord Portable is a free word processing program similar to Microsoft Word. It is suitable for a variety of word processing activities and has the ability to read and write a number of document types including Microsoft Word, Word Perfect, Open Document (pre-installed), RTF, HTML, Palm and more. It includes both grammar and spelling checkers as well as an array of other handy features including mail merge capabilities. It also has a plug-ins system allowing you to add features with available add-on plug-ins.

Free Online Virtual Computer

Posted on March 27, 2009. Filed under: Computer, Web | Tags: , , |


                            

       Today, I came across a service called “Global Hosted Operating System” or “Ghost” (actually G.ho.st) that is the closest resemblance to the desktop model that I have experienced to date. If you are on broadband (high-speed internet), you have to at least try the “Ghost” virtual computer.  It will not harm your computer in anyway and it is absolutely free. The first thing to make clear is that Ghost is currently in the “alpha” stage of “public” testing. It is stable and usable, but it is not yet fully complete.  During “alpha testing”, you can expect some bugs, but they will not bite

                                

What is G.ho.st®?

         G.ho.st® provides every person in the world with a free Virtual Computer (VC). Like a Windows PC, or Mac, the VC is a personal computing environment which includes your desktop, your personal settings, your files and your choice of software applications. But unlike a PC, your VC is not installed on one physical computer – instead it is stored in professional data centers across the Internet cloud, and is accessed from any Internet browser in the world. From any computer, open the browser to G.ho.st , enter your username and password, and continue using your VC from exactly the state you last left it in.

Advantages of G.ho.st
  • Available from any browser in the world instead of being installed on one physical machine.
  • The operating system, many apps, and the first 5GB of data storage and 3GB of email storage are absolutely free.
  • Software (namely Web-based software) can be run without installation.
  • The computer is always up-to-date, secure and backed up with no action or cost on your part.
  • The G.ho.st VC manages all your Web logins and all your web ‘stuff’ (e.g. files on different web services).
  • Because it is online, the G.ho.st VC provides new possibilities for fun and collaboration, beyond what is available on a PC.

             

Key Features
  • Access your desktop, files, apps and settings from any Internet browser
  • Desktop and apps run without the need for installation or updating
  • Customize your desktop and choose from 20+ available languages
  • 5GB professionally hosted and backed-up disk space
  • Many file types can be viewed or edited online with a simple double-click
  • Upload and sync your documents, photos and music easily using the G.ho.st Upload Download Utility, Sync program or FTP
  • Manage smart shortcuts called Tagged Things to Web resources – webmarks (URLs), files, photos, videos, music, products
  • Single sign-on to other services such as Google Docs using My Logins
  • Manage smart shortcuts called Tagged Things to Web resources – webmarks (URLs), files, photos, videos, music, products
  •  Share or publish your files directly from the G.ho.st Drive
  • Read, write and edit documents, spreadsheets and presentations using G.ho.st integrations with  Zoho, directly from your G.ho.st Storage
  • Edit Google Docs, sheets and presentations stored at Google from within G.ho.st.
  • Manage your e-mails, calendar and contacts with the Web’s leading collaboratoin suite
  • You will receive a yourGhostID @G.ho.st email and can retrieve other emails as well (using "POP3")
  • Yes G.ho.st runs within the browser but also contains a browser of it’s own! Whichever computer you are on, the G.ho.st Browser will have your history, your webmarks, and your "cookies" so that other sites will recognize you.

SPAMIHILATOR-Free Anti-spam Filter

Posted on March 26, 2009. Filed under: Computer | Tags: , , , , |


                      

           Spamihilator works between your E-Mail client and the Internet and examines every incoming E-Mail. Useless spam mails (Junk) will be filtered out. This process runs completely in the background.

          The new Learning Filter (Bayesian Filter) uses the rules of Thomas Bayes (English mathematician, 18th century) and calculates a certain Spam-Probability for every E-Mail. You can train this filter! So it will know your messages even better than you. Hence the recognition rate will continuously increase.

 

              Recycle bin                                                                          Training Area

  1. Learning Filter: analyses the words in the email and assigns them a score depending on if the email is spam or not. This is then used to give a score to incoming emails to see if it looks like spam or not.
  2. Spam Word Filter: You can also add your own words to look out for and say what, by means of percentage, how likely an email containing that word is likely to be spam.
  3. Link Filter: All links in an email are compared with the black/white list of addresses Spamihilator has stored from past emails. If you say an email is spam then any links in that email get classed as spam links so any further emails containing that link are classed as spam. Like the learning filter there is a scoring system used for links.
  4. DCC Filter: which connects with the DCC Network to recognize unsolicited bulk mail. The emails are compared with emails received by others and if a lot of other people received the same, or a very similar, email then it gets marked as spam.
  5. Attachment Filter: marks an email as spam if it has an attachment who’s file type is in the blocked list.

                                  

         Most importantly Spamihilator supports Plug-ins. These useful additional filters protect your system against annoying spam mails.

    The program works with almost every E-Mail client, such as Outlook 2000/XP/2003/Express, Eudora, Mozilla, Netscape, Opera, etc…
