I love trying out cool music players. I have already written about several players and no doubt will continue that trend. Today I will cover the sleek, free, and powerful AIMP2. AIMP2 could probably be best described as a Winamp alternative of sorts. The cool thing about AIMP is they do not hold out features only available in a “pro” version. AIMP2 is very light on system resources and can play basically any media file under the sun.
We’ve already covered how to use an Ubuntu Live CD to backup files from your dead Windows computer, but using the boot cd can sometimes be a little slow. We can speed up the booting process by installing Ubuntu to a bootable USB flash drive instead.
Again another exciting week for computer geekery! I would argue the highlight of this week was the release of Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2. We also covered a lot of several MS Office tips. In case you missed anything last week here is a list of the week’s content.
It’s been a long time since Microsoft released the first beta of Internet Explorer 8, which left me wondering what they had up their sleeve. After reading that they added a ton of new features in Beta 2 like private browsing, tab grouping and a new smart address bar, I just had to try it out and share with all of our readers.

Have you ever noticed that many of the hotfixes listed in the Microsoft Help and Support knowledge base aren’t actually available for download unless you contact support? What you might not know is that there is a secret form on the MS site that allows you to fill out a request for that specific hotfix… it’s just not easily accessible.
