Automate computer settings by network with Net Profiles

Automate computer settings by network with Net Profiles

Windows only: Freeware application Net Profiles lets you automate tasks—like mapping network drives or switching the default printer—based on the network your computer is currently connected to.

Every once in a while you come across an application that fits so perfectly into a need that you have. For anyone with a laptop, this one is for you. Using this handy little application (that is free by the way), you setup each of your “profiles” one time, and after that it is as simple as double clicking the profile in the future. What does this profile include? It includes your network settings, your default printer settings, any mapped network drives you have, and it can even change your display settings (wallpaper, icons, resolution).
Think about it: you’re at home with your wallpaper, your icons, your lower resolution (so you can actually see things), your printer, and your custom home network settings including your home network shares. Now you have to take your laptop to work. Click one button and your work wallpaper, icons, resolution (higher resolution = productivity right?), printer, and custom network settings including work network shares are instantly swapped.
It just works that wonderfully.

Democrats Plan to Cut Cheney Out of Executive Funding Bill

Democrats plan to cut Cheney out of executive funding bill

On Thursday, Emanuel suggested that if Cheney feels his office is not part of the executive branch “he should return the salary the American taxpayers have been paying him since January 2001, and move out of the home for which they are footing the bill.”

Really quite funny. What a funny response to such a ridiculously stupid claim made by Dick. I really truly hope we impeach this ass hat. I don’t know who is worse, him or Bush. Both of them need to to be impeached and tried for war crimes, but it’ll be a fight to see who deserves to go first.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Ending Leaked

Harry Potter 0day

Voldemort killed Hermione. Yes, that’s true. And we knew that 2 days ago. This is the end of the not yet published (someone could call that 0day) book Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows . At the end of the story Hagrid was killed by Snape in the attempt of ambush Hermione and Ron. Ron and Hermione flees in privet drive but Voldermort, surprising them, engaged a magical duel with Ron and Hermione. Voldemort attacked trough the imperius curse and Hermione, to protect the life of Ron fight hardly for more than 6 pages and then finally die. (boring, very boring… it’s always the same story!) Then, to make a long story short, Harry came up, killed all the bad guys and Hogwarts against became a good place to stay and have fun. Ah, i missed one important information about Draco Malfoy, he started to create Horcrux (for fun and profit!). The end.

Ok. So above is the ending of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The font color has been set to white which means you will have to select the text to actually read it. That’s the best I can do to not spoil things for everyone.
Read at your own risk, the ending is HUGE.
