I have *cough* never forgotten my password to anything because I followed Brian’s excellent advice about storing passwords, but just in case some of you have, I thought I’d help you out.
First off, if you are locked out of your MODx manager, you can use the standard link on the manager page to email you your password, but I’m outlining how to do this in the event that you either didn’t enter a valid email address or you aren’t receiving your emails somehow. There are two things I’m going to outline: Read more
Systems: Windows Only (2000, XP, Vista, 2008 / Both 32 and 64 bit)
Donationware: Technically it’s free, but when you see the level of craftsmanship in this program, you will want to donate.
I recently changed ISPs to one with much more consistent service, but the trade off is that I now have a rather small bandwidth cap. As much as we hate them, bandwidth caps are probably in all of our futures. The important thing is to have control over and be informed of your usage (before the bill arrives). I needed a reliable way to keep track of my bandwidth, so I tested out several free bandwidth monitoring softwares. My ISP has its own online bandwidth usage calculated, but I wanted a redundant system (one which I could use to make sure they were honest in their tracking). In my experiments, I found Networx to be the best. Its primary virtue is its ability to be as advanced as you need it to be. For my multiple computer home network, it has every feature I could ask for. Let’s take a closer look.
The software is so unobtrusive; it even lacks a full control window. Instead, you can access all aspects of the software from the taskbar icon. Read more
Congratulations to “Dan” from KS, winner of the iPod Touch from TipsFor.us. Dan was one of more than 100 entries, but he was one of only a few who took advantage of all three entry methods (Form, Facebook, and Blog post). Obviously, it paid off for him.
Many thanks to all of you who entered. Stay tuned for future giveaway announcements, as we plan to host several more giveaways on TipsFor.us. What might we give away next? Maybe some RAM, a Macbook, or maybe some California IOUs? 🙂
UPDATE: tunesBag is dead.
Currently in beta, tunesBag is a free browser-based media player that allows you to (legally) upload your music, play it online, and share with other people.
Think of tunesBag as an online version of iTunes that grants you access to your full audio library from any computer with an Internet connection. Since it’s entirely web based, it lacks features such as CD ripping and iPod syncing, but that’s not really the point. What it does offer is the ability to sit down at any computer and immediately have your full music library at your disposal.
Here’s the main window. Hard to believe this is all running in a browser, huh?

Good luck! The unopened iPod package has been sitting on my desk for over a week now. I’d love nothing more than to tear open the box and claim it for my own! Instead, I must continue to show great restraint and give it away to one of you lucky readers.
Don’t miss this opportunity to win this lovely gadget – the giveaway ends in one week!
