wikipedia

Wikipedia is the largest free editable encyclopedia online consist of over 2 million articles. Wikipedia Encyclopedia can be edited by almost anyone who uses the Internet, Since it is written by users, anyone can edit, delete and arrange the articles on Wikipedia. It's a resource for a huge knowledge sharing. Almost any topics you can find on the Wikipedia. As it is a wiki which is editable, there is good and bad side of it. Good side is "Sharing information" around the world and the Bad side is "Misleading Information". The giant industries and personalities hate to see their flaws online as those flaws can be put online for the sake of everyone's knowledge. Well that is what these giant corporations and personalities are so scared of.

One American student sent major corporations, governments and even the Vatican on the defensive after coming up with Wikipedia Scanner, a software program that reveals who changed Wikipedia entries.

Best of Multi Protocol Messenger Clients

miranda

I was looking out for Instant Messenger application that allows me to connect to multiple chat services at the same time so that I don't have to run too many messengers at a same time. Yes previously I knew about some open source multi protocol messengers but somehow the interface didn't satisfy me much. Now I've checked Pidgin and Miranda and both of them looks just fine. Pidgin has a kind of Web 2.0 look, smooth and simple interface. Lets take a moment to review these  2 clients.

How to mount ISO files in Windows Vista

MagicDisk01

There are several problems I’ve found  while  mounting .ISO/.IMG/.BIN etc  CD/DVD image files in windows vista. Well know Daemon Tools claims to be working on windows vista 32 bit and 64 bit versions but it’s not entirely correct because some of the CD/DVD image files appear to be corrupted after loading. Also it is risky to install daemon tools now because they are installing few search bar tools.  Alternatively I’ve tried out SlySoft’s Virtual Clone Drive, which also have the similar problems, it can mount the images but some of the files appears to be corrupted. At last I’ve Installed MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM(MagicDisc), a freeware multiple CD/DVD emulation utility and it worked on all the CD/DVD Images I’ve tried on. I didn’t try PowerISO or UltraISO yet.
