I find a pretty interesting site.  I usually check it everyday to see if there is an application I might want to try or an entertaining game I want to play.  I know several of our readers go there as well to get different software applications as well.  I would just urge caution with some of the applications and also to make sure and read the reviews.  Sometimes if you have too many applications there is the possibility of some not playing nice with each other leading to some corrupt files and / or Windows not working correctly.

Have you ever noticed that new folders that you create inside of your Home directory in Vista just look out of place? All the built-in folders have those stylish greenish icons, and your folders are ugly and yellow.

So you installed Firefox on Windows Vista, but you can’t seem to get the flash plugin to install… you click the “Install Missing Plugins” button, follow the wizard, restart Firefox, and it’s still not installed. Annoying!

There are several online backup services to choose from out there.  Out of them all so far Mozy has been my service of choice.  I just have the Mozy Home Free version which allows 2GB of storage.  I know 2 GB is not a whole lot these days but I only back up MP3′s of some of my guitar recordings.  So far it seems to be enough.  There are different backup plans you can purchase at varying prices.  Let’s take a look at the free software.
