You do not need to be a super programmer to create gadgets for you and your friend’s iGoogle page.  Now this method is not going to create any flashy games or show stock reports, but it is a fun way to share content with friends and family.  If you have not yet created an iGoogle page it is very simple, just sign in with your Gmail login (or set up a new account) and get started creating content for the page.

The number one rule which is drilled into your brain as an IT professional is “Backup Your Data!”  As part of a theme in the coming weeks The Geek and I are going over several different processes to backup data on your PC.  In a recent Lifehacker poll readers were asked what is the best Windows backup tool.  I was a bit surprised SyncBack did not make a better showing in the poll as it is an incredibly simple and powerful free backup utility.  In this first part of the SyncBack series I am going to demonstrate a straight forward simple and easy backup to an external drive.

Windows Vista has some new tools to help in diagnosing problems with your system.  Yes there are still the familiar ones such as Event Viewer, Task Manager, and Performance Monitor, but Vista has improved upon these standards and added new diagnostic tools as well.  One very cool on was previously covered by The Geek which is the Memory Diagnostics Tool.  Here I am going to cover an often overlooked but extremely convenient tool which is generating a System Health Report.

Have you ever noticed that the File Types option was completely removed from Vista, and there’s no built-in way to change the editor for many file types? Sure, you can change the default application used to open the file, but you can’t change what happens when you right-click / edit.

Time for some Friday fun!  This game was brought to my attention by a “lazy network admin” friend of mine.  He got into this game so much at work he ended up beating it.  Robokill Titan Prine is a very impressive Flash game from Rock Solid Arcade.

For those of you who familiar with the SyncBack utility for file backup know the genius of 2BrightSparks software.  One utility you may not know of is EncryptOnClick.  This is the easiest encryption software I have ever used.  It uses military grade 256-bit AES encryption with password protection. In addition to encrypting your documents, they are also compressed at the same time.
