Spam is one thing that everyone hates. GuerrillaMail helps you avoid it by providing you a temporary email address that last for about one hour. If an email comes it will show up right on their web site. All you have to do is keep that window open. You can also extend the time you want the temporary address to stay active. This is really great if their is something you want to checkout, but and not give up your email address. Until next time peace.

StreamFile is a new site on the rise offering data streaming and encryption with a twist. Some of you may be using Drop.io to move your large files (earlier article), but what makes StreamFile different is the file can be simotaniously download as it is being uploaded be sending an email to the recipient, or sending the link that is provided once the upload begins.
By having the ability to download a file as it is being upload saves you a lot of time. When normally you would have to wait for the entire file to upload before you could transfer it to someone else. I gave it a few test runs and it seems to work just fine.The max file size is 2GB. Until next time peace.
Every wonder how good is your password you that protects your email, bank account and such? Well I've come across a website that will tell you exactly that. Hackosis has a spreadsheet formula that will tell you based on the types of characters used in your password ( number of upper case, lower case, numbers, special characters etc) how long it would take to hack it from a computer trying 25,769,803,776 passwords per hour. You are not giving the site your password just the number of characters and numbers used. Give me some feedback on this on. Especially if you thought your password was soild. Mine was 34 minutes. Until next time peace!

I think the title says it all. If you use Firefox this is a must for having all your bookmarks on different computers. If you have two computers in your home, or Firefox on a computer at work install this add-on in all of your Firefox browsers. Foxmarks syncs your bookmarks to your account on their website. After that your bookmarks will be synced with any computer you have installed Foxmarks on. Now you have an automatic backup if your computer ever crashes. It really is a know brainer. I don't know about you, but I love having the same set up regardless of what computer I'm on.
Also if you read my Cool Websites post a while back then you know that you can get that version for your thumb drive and still have the same functionality. If you are unfamiliar with Portable Apps it is basically like a mini software suite placed on your thumb drive. It allows you to have comparable programs to Microsoft Office and some other useful things as well. And as always it's free! Until next time peace!

Ever wonder if your neighbor has a dark past? Are they a little weird? Then checkout Criminal Searches. This is a new site in the beta mode and right now so it's free. Simply type in the person name and you get search results with a key that breaks down on what they were arrested for. Until next time peace.
