How to Use FolderShare to Transfer Big FilesSometimes you need to send or receive files that are very large in size, even after they're zipped. Your ISP or the sender's/recipient's on the other end may not support file sizes that are over a certain limit (usually a couple of MB), and you might not want to set up an FTP server for security reasons. One solution is to use FolderShare, a file synchronization service that was recently acquired by Microsoft and is now in beta as part of the Windows Live family. You can download the software for both Windows and Mac OS X. Here's how to use it once it's installed:
If you haven't used FolderShare before, on the Welcome screen, click "I don't have a FolderShare account."
On the New Account Information page, choose a nickname and password and type in your email address. You also have to check a box certifying that you're over 13 years of age.
The software will connect to the FolderShare server and create your account.
On the "choose a computer name" page, the default is your computer's name on the network. Accept the default and click Finish.
Now you'll see a flashing icon in the system tray. You can click a FolderShare library if you've been invited to share one, or click My FolderShare to go to the web site and set up a folder to share, sync your folders, share your folders with friends on the Internet, or access your files. FolderShare operates like a private P2P program. Those you invite can share items in the folder(s) you designate to share, but can't access anything else on your computer.

A portable contact manager that can be installed on your PC or a USB drive or other portable device. It provides an easy-to-use interface and a surprising range of features that extend the functionality beyond that of a simple address book.
In addition to detailed contacts records and personal categories, it can notify you of birthdays, anniversaries, and other events, and even includes emailing features to send messages to selected contacts or mailing lists. Kurlo can also help you print address labels and envelopes using selected contacts from your database. Other features include advanced search, import/export, data backup, and more.

FastStone Image Viewer--Beta 5

I have looked at some of the other FastStone products before in the past, but none have impressed me more than the FastStone Image Viewer. For a freeware program, this software has just about everything you would ever need to help manage your digital photo collection on your computer. Need to know more? Here is how the folks at FastStone describe the image viewer: "FastStone Image Viewer is a fast, stable, user-friendly image browser, converter, and editor. It has a nice array of features that include image viewing, management, comparison, red-eye removal, emailing, resizing, cropping, and color adjustments. Its innovative but intuitive full-screen mode provides quick access to EXIF information, thumbnail browser, and major functionalities via hidden toolbars that pop up when your mouse touch the four edges of the screen. "Other features include a high quality magnifier and a musical slideshow with 150+ transitional effects, as well as lossless JPEG transitions, drop shadow effects, image annotation, scanner support, histogram, and much more." This freeware program has just about every image managing tool you would ever need. Some of the new features in this beta 5 release are:--You can add wallpaper anywhere (under Tools menu) that allows you to put photos anywhere on your windows desktop--You can open all selected files in external program at a time--Dual Monitor support--Much more
You can pick up either the beta or the latest final release of FastStone Image Viewer via

K-3D v

Creating 3D computer models is something I have always wanted to play around with, but it seems like every program out there to do it costs an arm and a leg. If you are like me and do not have the cash to burn on such things, then you should give K-3D a shot. Here is what the author of K-3D has to say about it: "K-3D is the free-as-in-freedom 3D modeling, animation, and rendering system. K-3D features a robust, object-oriented plugin architecture, designed to scale to the needs of professional artists, and is designed from-the-ground-up to generate motion-picture-quality animation using RenderMan-compliant render engines. We strongly recommend the Aqsis render engine for use with K-3D. "K-3D's innovative interactive tutorial system will introduce you to basic use of the program. New tutorials can easily be recorded and shared with the rest of the community." With so many people just kind of interested in 3D modeling, this is a program that has been needed for a long time. This could be used as a great stepping stone as well for folks who want to try out such a program but don't have the money to put down on one of the big boys in this industry.
