Quick Post

I haven't been posting anything for quite some time now so here is a post on stuff i found useful for the past couple of weeks.

1. Bart PE - As qouted from its creator Bart's PE Builderhelps you build a "BartPE" (Bart Preinstalled Environment) bootable Windows in a CD-Rom or DVD from the original Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 installation/setup CD, very suitable for PC maintenance tasks. Just like having a Live Linux CD except its windows and you do need to have a licensed windows for you to use it. Here are some of the useful plugins i installed: Sherpya's Windows XPE Plugin, Codecs Plugin for XPE/PnP, ClamWin Antivirus Scanner 0.88, Java Plugin 1.5.0_06, Mozilla Firefox Plugin, Ewieldra's Antivir PersonalEditon Classic version 7, Tariq hasan's Avast plugin. These are some of the plugins i downloaded and used there are tons more plugins out there just google Bart PE plugins.

2. - Chikka lets you send free messages from pc to pc, from pc to a mobile phone and from a mobile phone to pc. You can use the Chikka Messenger or in my case Chikka Javalite version to send text messages directly to cell phones in the Philippines, the U.S., Japan, India, or Thailand at no cost. Ok there is a catch though for every network there is an alotted credit once the credit is consumed it will be replenish the following day. Here are the allocations for each network:

AT&T (US) - 20
Cingular Wireless (US) - 20
Other U.S. Mobile Phones - 30
Globe (Ph) - 30
Smart (Ph) - 20
Sun Cellular (Ph) - 4
Japan Mobile Phones - 20
DTAC (TH) - 20
Guamcell/Saipancell - 20
India Mobile Phones - 10

Well thats it for now. Enjoy!
