Well, I don't like software patents. They are, in fact, protections of mathematical expression. They're hows. Real inventions are whats. They should ...

  10. Controlling PCs over the Internet

    Date: 11/13/04 (Software)    Keywords: software

    Hi folks,

    Does anyone have any software recommendations for controlling one PC by another over the Internet?

    Netmeeting is just proving to be so problematic, and doesn't cope well with any connection problem.

    I am aware of VNC, but would like to find something that's a little more straightforward to use (and that my parents can cope with installing).

    So I'm looking for something simple to use, that just does the job.

    Any ideas?


    Edit: Just to emphasise, this needs to be used by a very non-savvy computer user at the other end i.e. my parents, so I can help them troubleshoot problems with their PC over the Internet. Finding IP addresses etc. is just beyond their capacity, so something similar in manner of connection an IM client would probably be good (or something they can cope with).

  11. Office 2003 weirdness

    Date: 11/12/04 (Software)    Keywords: software, microsoft, google

    Hi folks,

    Recently with Office 2003 when I start Word and FrontPage (which I use most commonly) I get a dialog with "Installing: Microsoft Office Word feature" and "Installing: Microsoft Office FrontPage feature" respectively. The program starts after a few second once the install is complete, so the software is still working at least.

    It's getting increasingly annoyed though as (a) it adds to the time to start the application (b) I'm wondering why on earth it does this.

    Any ideas why it's doing this? A quick Google hasn't turned up anything that I can see.

    i've been using pair networks to host my html only page for www.fablesoft.com for a few years now, but i'm going to need php hosting soon and would rather not pay upwards of $20 just to have php enabled.. i've come across doteasy.com for $9.95 a month... but i dunno, any suggestions? any horror stories?

    one thing i can say for pair is that they are RELIABLE, not that my silly software site needs ultra-reliability hosting or anything, but that's a nice aspect of pair.
