Find New Music At Stage.FM

I found a cool site today while cruising around the Internet.  Stage.FM is a great site to find new unsigned artists and bands.  This site is a social network for independent, unsigned musicians and fans.  There are several genres of music to choose from, and a lot of it is available for free download or a nominal fee (20 cents).

Different Versions Of CC Cleaner With Yahoo!??

Today I ran into a new version of CC Cleaner v 2.06 which includes the Yahoo Toolbar with the installation.  According to the instructions this allows you to use CC Cleaner from your browsers toolbar.  It seems there are a lot of companies trying to sneak their software into various popular freeware applications lately.  I covered one of them in a previous post.

Disable That Irritating AutoScroll Feature in Firefox

So you try to middle click on a link on a page and miss the link… then the round “Auto Scroll” icon shows up and suddenly the page is moving around and scrolling all by itself.

Auto-Hide Your Cluttered Firefox Status Bar Items

One of the reasons that I love Firefox is the dozens of extensions that I have installed to customize the browser, but it seems like every extension includes another icon or widget, and by this point the status bar looks like an instrument panel… so how can I make them hide until I need them?

UltraDefrag v 1.3.4

I recently installed Windows XP 64 on one of my machines the other day.  On that … I have to say my reviews so far are mixed.  I love the fact it recognizes my 4GB of RAM and so far the performance is tight.  I have had a few driver issues … but have a good handle on it. 


Portable Apps is a remarkable portable application suite which runs off your USB flash drive.  You can carry around all of your favorite open source applications with this utility.
