ManyCam 2.6

With the increase in bandwidth seen over the last few years, along with it has arrived the opportunity to communicate with people across the globe, not just by typing, but with full audio and high quality video too. So much so, in fact, that simply being able to see and hear each other is no longer enough, and we night look for ways to enhance the experience further, and have some fun into the bargain, which is where a webcam enhancement program such as ManyCam comes in.

ManyCam has been around for a few years now, as have other similar programs, and it’s gone through several updates, culminating in its latest incarnation, ManyCam version 2.6. Continue reading →

I don’t know about you, but I try to back My Documents up on a regular basis. The contents mainly consist of some video clips, music, pictures and documents of course, and a wide range of other things I save or come across while surfing the net. Usually I’ll check the My Documents directory size, to get an idea how big it’s getting, and burn some files to a DVD for storage in case something untoward happens to my computer, or to recoup some disk space.

Opera v.11.01 / Mozilla Firefox 3.6 / Google Chrome 9.0 Comparison

The ubiquitous Microsoft Internet Explorer seems to have been around, in its various incarnations, forever and, perhaps because it comes with Microsoft Windows, it’s held the number one slot for web browsers for a while too.

Going back in time: Microsoft Windows Adverts

I have to admit I am a bit of a sucker when it comes to that window with 4 colors, ya see no matter how many blue screens i have encountered, my allegiance stayed with Bill Gates, and not the penguin or the apple. Why? i hear you ask, well most of the things i love have come from childhood, and stuck with me until now. We will have to go back in time and explore those glorious adverts Microsoft unleashed to the world:

First up is the windows 95 color logo ad, when i was a kid, this literally blew me away…

Next up is a windows 98 commercial with music that rocked! why didn’t they make an official microsoft album?

So there you have it, a true love for the Microsoft golden oldies, now all we need is for Microsoft to release its fast food chain or maybe team up with Mcdonalds?…. a Mcsoft cheesburger please :)
