Powertoys for Windows XP let u work faster and easier

Submitted by WiNUX on Thu, 04/23/2009 - 01:33

A set of small tools for Windows XP, which should make some daily actions easier. Windows vista already included some features.

Image Resizer
Very useful, let you one-click-resize of image(s). predefined sizes: 240x320, 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768 and supports user defined size. Conrta: bad naming of resized images. ie: your_image.jpg will be your_image(small).jpg

Social bookmarking Client for multiple update

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 04/21/2009 - 16:09

I need a software or maybe mozilla firefox add-on, which updates all my social bookmarking accounts when I create a new post on my blog. I dont want to login to all my web 2.0 accounts each time to add my new posts. For example; there are fields for title, url, description, tags and when I click on update, the software adds that enrty to all social media sites like facebook, digg, delicious, reddit etc. Of course I give each login info first and save them before I send any data. Is it possible?

You will not find all auto-starting programms under Start >> Programs >> Autostart. To remove autostart setting of most software which running as service:

start >> run >> regedit
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

Remove software which you dont want run automagicly when windows starting.

Joomla structure confusing

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Wed, 04/15/2009 - 00:18

All popular CMS have a clear structure. You know what is a module or block. But Joomla 1.5 has components, modules, mambots and extensions. Joomla-blocks / boxes called modules and I still dont know the difference between components and extensions. I think this is a reason why many profis prefer Drupal or Typo3 etc.

Do I need suexec, suphp, php-suhosin, mod_security same time?

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 04/14/2009 - 23:52

Just another question: Do I need PHP-Suhosin if I have mod_security already installed on my dedicated server? And what is the difference between Apache-Suexec and suphp or php-suexec, make sense to have both installed and in use? Because I have some strange problems with my website, sometimes my site is unreachable for me but if I disconnect and re-connect(change IP) the site is on. There is no server load issues or etc. I had been banned but I dont know who banned me, if mod_sec or apf or suhosin or any other tool.

Do I need Iptables, Lokkit Firewall and APF same time?

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 04/14/2009 - 23:44

Hello, I am a linux beginner. Why are three firewall software(iptables, apf, lokkit) installed on a dedicated server? Do I really need all of them? Is not there a conflict related big risk. For example they could block each other and all other network programms and connections. I just want to have an easy to use and secure webserver with less limit.
