Bug control, accelerated

Dragonflies are highly evolved and efficient predators. This was perfect inspiration for our new developer tools

Twitter today was launched in Japanese and it contains ads. A lot of Japanese are using twitter even though it is available only in English. And since ads are in Twitter Japan it might eventually make it into Twitter English.

AVG Free anti-virus is one of the most popular anti-virus and is widely used.

Windows XP Service Pack 3 which should have been available early 2006 but was pushed back as Microsoft concentrated more on Windows Vista will be available next week to users who have kept the utomatic updates on. The update, which consists of previously released updates and a few new bug fixes and changes, will be available for download via the Web on April 29.

Update includes –

  • Support for WPA2, the latest standards-based wireless security solution derived from the IEEE 802.11i standard.
  • Improvements to black-hole router detection (detecting routers that are silently discarding packets). Windows XP SP3 turns this protection on by default.
  • BITS 2.5, which is required by Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 and Windows Live OneCare.
  • Peer Name Resolution Protocol (PNRP), which allows Windows XP applications to communicate with Windows Vista programs that use PNRP.
  • Windows Installer 3.1, which contains new and enhanced functionality and addresses some issues that Microsoft found in Windows Installer 3.0.
  • Digital Identity Management Service (DIMS), which allows users who log on to any domain-joined computer to silently access all of their certificates and private keys for applications and services.

File Dropper is yet another file upload service that will host your files up to 5 GB. It is also very easy to use. Their tagline is -“The Simplest Filehosting Website Ever”

  • From the main page you can upload your files
  • After upload you’ll be directed to a site with your file and link to download it. (This is simple !)

And if you are ready to pay you can password protect your file and include a file manager (plans starting at $0.99 a month)

You can try it out here. (But beware uploads are fast but downloads are slow)

Pirate Bay is expanding – First there was image hosting (uncensored), YouTube competitor is in track and now BayWords (blogging uncensored).

Brokep, one of the co-founders of the site, told TorrentFreak that the idea to start a blogging service came up when the weblog of one of his friends was taken down from WordPress recently, for linking to copyrighted material. With BayWords you can blog to your heart’s content about anything even uncomfortable thoughts and ideas & copyrighted material too. Read more about it here.
