Savefile.com Free File Hosting

Per my previous posting, I fixed some FireFox extensions for 1.5+., but I can't always access them from work depending on where I'm at or who I'm logged in as. Came across a very sweet service, the free filehoster Savefile.com. You create an account, then a project folder, then you upload the file(s). If you like, you can add a password, per project. Easy-peasy, not even queasy.

The three FireFox extensions I fixed are External Applications 1.7.1, MapIt 1.7.2, and Ook. I've also uploaded my current Adblock Plus "bad ad" text file. If you want to give them a go, you do so at your own risk. My software-blogsite disclaimer is in force for these as well. As of this posting, the password brick will get you in all my projects/files. The Savefile projects are FireFox Extensions Fixed and Adblock Plus Text File.

I stumbled across Technorati and on a lark, linked this to it blog a month or so ago. Lo and behold, I find an article in an Oct 05 Discover magazine talking about Web 2.0. (I'm usually at three issues behind 'cause I not only read it from cover to cover, but have to re-read several really interesting articles.) I'm usually not an early-adopter, too much Scots blood to waste good moola on stuff that will be cheaper-better-faster when the next new thing/upgrade comes online. Yet, it didn't cost me but a few minutes to create a profile and add a link to my blog.

Bart's PE Builder Bootdisk CD

I used Bart's PE Builder for the first time today, and it surely made this netadmin's life boocoo easier. Had a XP PC do a BSOD, so I set up the external hard drive to Ghost the image back on. No joy as the HDD had bad sectors. Had bookmarked BPE a while back for "its and grins." Fifteen minutes later I'm running format and chkdisk, happy as the proverbial clam. Once the two were finished, Ghost worked fine and dandy. Only problem I had was during the build, the verify reported the NTOSKRNL.EXE wasn't found. Evidently when BPEB copied it from the i386 CAB to te c:\pebuilder3110, it was renamed to NTKRNLMP.EXE. Twas no biggie, I just copied the NTKRNLMP.EXE to a second file and renamed it to NTOSKRNL.EXE. Probably some fix on the forum site, but as I got it to work, I didn't worry with it.

Has a bunch of plugins you can add to the basic disk. If you so desire, you can write your own plugins as well. Seven stars out of seven for this gem.
