Geek Software of the Week – NetBootDisk!

OK, so this week’s Geek Software of the Week may be for hard core geeks and techies… but it is cool. If you have to update a lot of different kinds of systems and need network connectivity to do so, here’s a tool for your “tech tool belt!” Imagine a regular floppy that you can insert in nearly any halfway decent PC and boot, have it detect your network card, and allow you to access network shares via a TCP/IP connection (like say, to get to Ghost, if you need to “Ghost” images over a network!) OK, now imagine it is FREE!

NetBootDisk is FREE!

Download and enjoy! And, if you have a tool like Nero, you can even transfer it to a CD-ROM and have a universally bootable CD-ROM with TCP/IP network connectivity. Very handy!

Too Good! What Windows is REALLY Worth!

OK, so I was minding my own business, scanning on digg.com for what was happenin’ in the Cyberworld, and I ran across a note that someone was selling Windows on eBay for a penny! It was Windows 95 on CD-ROM (Upgrade Installation Disk,) and sure enough, it was selling for a starting bid of one penny! However, what was just too cool… was that there were ZERO bids!

OK, OK, I know it IS just Windows 95, and an Upgrade Version at that… but it was SO worth a snicker!

OpenOffice 2.0 is HERE!

It is finally official! OpenOffice 2.0 is out, and it rocks! In case you have been living under a rock somewhere, OpenOffice is a really great, and totally FREE Open Source Office Suite that runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux! This release has many things to recommend it, especially the addition of it’s own database (similar to Access.) As before, it will read and write all Microsoft Office formats. You owe it to yourself to download and use this new editon! Here is the link:

OpenOffice 2.0

This will also be our official Geek Software of the Week recommendation!
