      Free PDF Writer For Windows Vista

      This past weekend I had to upgrade my work PC to Windows Vista.

      One of the first things I found didn’t work after the upgrade, was PDFCreator (the free PDF writer I have used with Windows 2000 and XP). Of course, after some searching I did find a free alternative, CutePDF Writer http://www.cutepdf.com/Products/CutePDF/writer.asp. The installation was very easy as all you have to do is follow the steps they provide on their website (installation of 2 downloads) and the product works just as advertised.

      I know CutePDF is a fairly popular product, so you might have heard of it… or even use it yourself. So if you are looking for a free PDF writer for Windows Vista, CutePDF is a quick and easy way to go.

      Monitor Your CPU Temperature

      An important piece of information to know, especially if you overclock your hardware, is the temperature of your CPU. If your CPU gets too hot, well bad things can happen.

      If your motherboard or PC manufacturer do not already have a utility available to do this, then check out Core Temp http://www.thecoolest.zerobrains.com/CoreTemp/. This free lightweight program monitors the temperature on CPU’s and breaks them down by core when applicable. Core Temp supports almost all of the recent CPU’s and is a great tool to have.

      Website Performance Analyzer For Firebug

      Have you ever wanted to know how your website measures in speed with regards to caching and actual downloaded files? If so then Yahoo has made available an excellent tool called YSlow http://developer.yahoo.com/yslow/�which analyzes this information.

      YSlow is actually an extension of the Firefox plugin, Firebug (an extension of an extension) http://www.pcdailytips.com/2007/08/1...n-for-firefox/. Among other functions, it allows you to see how much data your pages will download with both a full and empty browser cache as well as offering tips to increase the performance of your site.

      Overall, this is a fantastic tool for developers to help optimize speed and efficiency on your websites. There is a good overview of the tool on PHPied’s website http://www.phpied.com/yslow-performa...n-for-firebug/, so give it a look if you are interested.

      Free Office Suite For Mac Users

      NOTE: This tip is specifically for Mac users.

      If you are looking for an office suite designed specifically for Mac… which is free, then give NeoOffice http://www.neooffice.org/neojava/en/index.phpa look.

      NeoOffice is built off the ever popular OpenOffice platform, but extends the functionality to familiar Mac paradigm. NeoOffice offers all the same features as OpenOffice, which in turn is comparable with an average user’s use of Microsoft Office. You can read more�about the extended Mac features listed on their page. http://www.neooffice.org/neojava/en/features.php

      Considering the price (free), you have nothing to lose by giving NeoOffice a try.

      Inspect Your PC For Software With Security Flaws


      One thing we all know we should do, but is very hard to, practically, is make sure the software installed on our PC’s is as secure as possible. Again, while this is a great idea, having to keep up with all your installed programs, OS patches, browser plugins, etc. is quite daunting. Instead, use Secunia’s Software Inspector. http://secunia.com/software_inspector/

      Software Inspector is a simple idea which works very well. Basically, you run a scan on your computer (through a Java plugin) which detects the installed versions of your programs against a database of known vulnerabilities. If you have a version installed which has any risk, you are notified of them as well as the given a link the version which addresses the problem.

      The process runs extremely quick and is free to use. Give it a try as you might be surprised what it finds.

      I don't think this goes along with the software theme, but this is a website where you can watch full length movies for free.

      The Best, Free Alternatives to Nero CD/DVD Burner

      The Best, Free Alternatives to Nero CD/DVD Burner
      Feb. 5th, 2008 | by Shankar Ganesh | 31,227 Views
      http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/the-bes...-cddvd-burner/

      Nero is one of the best piece of softwares available in the market for CD/DVD Burning Purposes, but its quite expensive. Its bulky and comes with a lot of programs that youll never really use.

      Why not try some freeware CD DVD Burning Apps applications that can serve as an alternative to Nero Burning ROM for your Windows PC?

      1. CDBurnerXP

      cdburnerxp

      This is by far the most popular free alternative to the expensive Nero Software. Works on Vista as well, and heres a features-highlight from CDBurnerXP:

      * Multi Language Interface
      * Support for Blu Ray/HD DVD
      * BIN > ISO converter included

      Download CDBurnerXP

      2. InfraRecorder

      infrarecorder

      This is the software that I currently use on my computer as a Nero alternative, and I must tell, its damn simple and straightforward. Has all that you might expect in a CD DVD Burning software like Nero. Some highlights from this Nero alternative include:

      * Support for Multi-Session
      * Very Light on Resources
      * Support for not just ISO, but also BIN and CUE images
      * Burning on Dual Layer DVDs is supported

      Download InfraRecorder

      3. DeepBurner (Free Edition)

      deepburner

      Another good alternative. Available both as a regular and portable app. So if you want something you can carry around on your USB Flash Drive then check this one out.

      * Supports both internal and external CD/DVD writers.
      * Burn any data, copy any disc.
      * Create multiple disk copies.
      * Make ISO CDs.
      * Print CD labels.

      Download DeepBurner

      4. Ultimate CD/DVD Burner

      This simple solution can serve all your basic CD burning needs. Similar to above Deepburner, there is a portable version. The only thing I dont like about this one is interface, it reminds of Windows 95.

      * CD Photo Albums creation
      * Easy Backup CD creation
      * Disk copying
      * ISO Creation and Burning

      Download Ultimate CD/DVD Burner

      5. Burn At Once


      burnatonce

      Burn At Once is another good CD/DVD Burning Application. It can copy discs on the fly and has the following unique features:

      * Tagging of media by importing data from FreeDB
      * Multi Language Support
      * Drag and Drop Interface

      However, it looks like support for this application is stagnant at the moment.

      Download Burn At Once

      6. Burn Aware Free Edition


      burnaware_home

      This relatively new software is creating waves, and its intuitive interface is attracting users. Its very light on resources, and supports every other format that you can imagine (including Blu Ray). Burning is fast because this software burns data directly on to the medium, instead of waiting for hard disk staging

      Download BurnAware

      7. ImgBurn

      imgburn

      Another software thats worth mentioning here is ImgBurn. Its a lightweight CD / DVD / HD DVD / Blu-ray burning application that can be installed both on Windows and Linux PCs. Its probably the most extensive out of all. If youre looking for something advanced and with lots of features ImgBurn seems like a good candidate.

      Download ImgBurn

      Do let us know about your experiences with these software in the comments. Have I missed out any? Shoot out your voices, come and discuss!

      Edison: Free energy-saving PC software



      By Martin LaMonica,
      CNET


      Although power management software has been around for years, there's clearly room for improvement, particularly with rising energy prices and environmental awareness.

      Start-up Verdiem VERDIEM - Power Management for PC Networks on Wednesday released software called Edison Edison PC Power Management Software | Edison that makes it easy for people to schedule when a PC goes into a low power consumption mode at home or at work.

      Verdiem's CEO, Kevin Klustner, is scheduled to highlight Edison and PC energy consumption during a conference call with Microsoft's chief environmental strategist, Robert Benard, and Intel's Lorie Wigle, president of the Climate Savers computing industry consortium.

      PCs can consume as much as 10 percent of a home's energy bill and give off as much carbon dioxide as a family car. Even when a PC's screen saver kicks on, the machine can still consume between 100 watts and 250 watts.

      The Edison software doesn't completely shut a computer off but rather moves it to a "suspend" state, which uses less energy. Users can also schedule to shut down the screen and hard drive before going into suspend mode.

      The tool lets users have work and home settings. It has a read-out of how much electricity you are saving, also translated into reductions in carbon dioxide emissions and dollar savings.

      Estimates will vary widely, depending on electricity rates and type of computer, but Verdiem says the average savings is 410 kilowatt hours a year, or $36.50.

      Verdiem, which is bankrolled in part by venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, was founded by people who were looking for better power management software than what's built into Windows.

      But developing the free Edison software isn't entirely altruistic. The sign-up process promotes Verdiem's power management software for businesses, called Surveyor, which the company says can pay for itself within a few years.

      There are a few methods available to help aspiring video game developers practice the trade.

      One is called Dark GDK (Game Developers Kit). It is a library for C++, designed by professional game developers specifically for game development (given that except for a few consoles, all games are developed using c++). This particular library currently only works with Microsoft's Visual C++ 2008.

      Dark GDK - The Game Creators


      There is also a free version of a "click and drag" type of game development software called Game Maker. It's currently on the 8.0 version. The free software only allows users to develop 2D games, but the paid version allows for 3D games to be developed along with 2D games.
