HELP JENNY PLAN HER PERFECT WEDDING
The bride is undeniably the center of attention on her wedding day: the hair, the dress, the bouquet, the wedding cake... everything has to be perfect. However, another person who is almost as important as the bride - at least when it comes to making everything happen behind the scenes - is the best friend. The best friend is the person who works tirelessly to make sure things go as planned, and is also the one who does damage-control when things go wrong.

In Dream Day Wedding, that best friend is you. Your pal Jenny's big day is fast approaching, and you've been put in charge of planning her wedding and making sure it goes off without a hitch. This is easier said than done, because as anyone who's gone through a wedding knows, nothing ever goes quite according to plan, and little issues pop up as sure as bread out of a toaster.
Your main task is to visit various shops, such as the florist, bakery, salon, jeweler and dress maker, and pick up a list of key items that Jenny needs before time runs out and the stores close for the day. Each shop is filled with random objects with the key items cleverly hidden among the clutter, so it will take a keen eye to locate everything on the list.

SECOND RELEASE OF BORDERLANDS

Five years have passed since the events of the original Borderlands, and the Hyperion Corporation has since gained dominance over Pandora. Attempts are being made to evict, and exterminate the planet's indigent population.

Borderlands 2 returns players to the outback world of Pandora, where four (and inevitably) new characters must attempt to free the planet from the clutches of Hyperion and restore the planet with the aid of the Guardian Angel. 
Like the previous game, Borderlands 2 marries the FPS genre with role-playing elements, giving players plenty of reason to hunt down unique and powerful weapons as they complete missions.

BULLETS OF A REVOLVER

Bullets of a Revolver is a little freeware Wild West beat 'em up. It tells the story of two bandits on their journey to discover a secret cave filled with gold.
The journey is told through a series of encounters with people and occasionally animals who want to stop Raymond and Marguerite. These are played out like a traditional beat 'em up. The controls are really simple, with direction keys and three attack buttons, and it plays at a fast pace.

Occasionally there are mini-games instead of battles, that see you do things like chasing a train or even dancing! As well as the story mode, there's an arcade mode, where you can fight as any of the characters in the story. There's also a two player versus mode, which puts two people at the keyboard. The default controls are well laid out, but are fully configurable.
The cute graphics and excellent sound make Bullets of a Revolver an enjoyable little experience, although the gameplay is not particularly subtle. It's definitely worth playing, and is a nice way to spend a few minutes here and there.

MAKE WINDOWS LOOK LIKE THE MOUNTAIN LION OS X
Windows 7/8: If you like the look of OS X but don't want to give up all your games and programs—or if you just don't want to buy a Mac—the Mountain Lion Skin pack will bring all the great looks and great features of OS X to your Windows desktop with one simple installation.

We've featured a few skin packs like this before, but this one is easily the best looking and most comprehensive we've seen. Not only does it change your wallpaper, icons, cursors, screensaver, and sounds, but it even adds popular Mac OS X features like Spaces, ExposĂ©, the Dock, and more. Of course, you can get a lot of these programs separately, but if you really want the closest Mac experience possible, this skin pack will get the job done in just a few clicks. It isn't perfect, and your mileage may vary—everyone's system is different—but if you have any issues, they have a pretty active forum that can help you fix everything up. And, it's easily uninstallable if you don't like it.
The Mountain Lion Skin Pack is a free download for Windows 7 and Windows 8. Just make sure to select "Custom Installation" and uncheck the boxes for the toolbar it wants to add. (Seriously, when will these go away already?)

USE THE BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH AS SCREENSAVER

One of the most feared colors in the NT world is blue. The infamous Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) will pop up on an NT system whenever something has gone terribly wrong. Bluescreen is a screen saver that not only authentically mimics a BSOD, but will simulate startup screens seen during a system boot.
  • On NT 4.0 installations it simulates chkdsk of disk drives with errors!
  • On Win2K and Windows 9x it presents the Win2K startup splash screen, complete with rotating progress band and progress control updates!
  • On Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 it presents the XP/Server 2003 startup splash screen with progress bar!

Bluescreen cycles between different Blue Screens and simulated boots every 15 seconds or so. Virtually all the information shown on Bluescreen's BSOD and system start screen is obtained from your system configuration - its accuracy will fool even advanced NT developers. For example, the NT build number, processor revision, loaded drivers and addresses, disk drive characteristics, and memory size are all taken from the system Bluescreen is running on.
Use Bluescreen to amaze your friends and scare your enemies!

TEST ANDROID APPLICATIONS ON YOUR COMPUTER
The Android SDK includes a mobile device emulator — a virtual mobile device that runs on your computer. The emulator lets you develop and test Android applications without using a physical device.


The Android software development kit (SDK) includes a comprehensive set of development tools. These include a debugger, libraries, a handset emulator based on QEMU, documentation, sample code, and tutorials. Currently supported development platforms include computers running Linux (any modern desktop Linux distribution), Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later, Windows XP or later. The officially supported integrated development environment (IDE) is Eclipse using the Android Development Tools (ADT) Plugin, though developers may use any text editor to edit Java and XML files then use command line tools (Java Development Kit and Apache Ant are required) to create, build and debug Android applications as well as control attached Android devices (e.g., triggering a reboot, installing software package(s) remotely).
Enhancements to Android's SDK go hand in hand with the overall Android platform development. The SDK also supports older versions of the Android platform in case developers wish to target their applications at older devices. Development tools are downloadable components, so after one has downloaded the latest version and platform, older platforms and tools can also be downloaded for compatibility testing.
Android applications are packaged in .apk format and stored under /data/app folder on the Android OS (the folder is accessible only to root user for security reasons). APK package contains .dex files (compiled byte code files called Dalvik executables), resource files, etc.

SIMPLE HOME BUDGET

The market for personal finance software has exploded in recent years, and the quality of these programs varies widely. We're happy to report that Simple Home Budget is one of the better budgeting programs we've come across; the program didn't blow us away, but it's easy to use, and we couldn't find any major faults with it.

The program's interface is well-organized and intuitive, with a helpful calendar in the upper left corner and its major features--transactions, recurring transactions, categories, and overview--arranged in tabs. Simple Home Budget easily passed our primary financial software litmus test: it lets users import account data from their banks in a variety of popular formats. It's easy to manually edit or add transactions, and recurring payments can be scheduled to automatically process and be added to the completed transactions. The program comes with a large number of customizable categories, making it easy for users to evaluate where their money is going. The overview tab lets users view graphs representing their income and expenses for a given period. The program's online Help file is more of an FAQ than an actual user guide, but the program is pretty easy to figure out. Overall, there's not much about Simple Home Budget that really impressed us, but it's a solid, easy-to-use program that should easily meet the needs of the average consumer.

CRAZYTALK, BECAUSE A PICTURE IS REALLY WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS
CrazyTalk is a useful tool that lets you create animation and add audio to facial images.
Digital animation technology has improved so much that it’s now possible to animate your own talking heads from your home PC. CrazyTalk promises to give you all the tools you need to import images and photographs before quickly applying mouth, head and eye movement to create realistic looking avatars and fun animations.

At first users might be a little skeptical about the value of CrazyTalk, Give it a try though and you'll be pleasantly surprised by the power of the utility. Granted, most peoples' initial efforts with the program will likely be limited to taking pictures of friends and adding famous song or movie audio clips to them just for kicks. These first experiments in CrazyTalk will be a little clunky and look far from realistic when you rely on the automatic lip-syncing functionality.
Once you delve deeper into CrazyTalk's settings though, you'll start to realize that you can actually produce some impressive animations.
With enough tinkering you can customize everything in CrazyTalk, from the teeth in the character’s mouth to their facial movements and their range of movement. Best of all is the built-in timeline, which gives you complete control of the animation and sound, much as you would do in Flash, or a video-editing suite.

CrazyTalk offers alpha channel support, making it ideal for producing talking images to welcome visitors to your web site or in presentations. The simple-to-use export facilities also allow you to save to a range of formats as a media file, email attachment or a personalized greeting.
There are a few flaws with CrazyTalk that are a little frustrating though. The auto lip sync feature isn't all that impressive or accurate, for one, and there's no support for MP3 format audio. There also aren't all that many preset templates to work from, which might be bothersome to some users.
CrazyTalk requires some getting used to, but once you get the hang of it you'll be able to create unique facial animations.

OPENVPN

OpenVPN is an open source software application that implements virtual private network (VPN) techniques for creating secure point-to-point or site-to-site connections in routed or bridged configurations and remote access facilities. It uses a custom security protocol that utilizesSSL/TLS for key exchange. It is capable of traversing network address translators (NATs) and firewalls. It was written by James Yonan and is published under the GNU General Public License (GPL).

OpenVPN allows peers to authenticate each other using a pre-shared secret key, certificates, or username/password. When used in a multiclient-server configuration, it allows the server to release an authentication certificate for every client, using signature and Certificate authority. It uses the OpenSSL encryption library extensively, as well as the SSLv3/TLSv1 protocol, and contains many security and control features.

WIRESHARK

Wireshark is a free and open-source packet analyzer. It is used for network troubleshooting, analysis, software and communications protocol development, and education. Wireshark is very similar to tcpdump, but has a graphical front-end, plus some integrated sorting and filtering options.
Wireshark allows the user to put network interface controllers that support promiscuous mode into that mode, in order to see all traffic visible on that interface, not just traffic addressed to one of the interface's configured addresses and broadcast/multicast traffic. However, when capturing with a packet analyzer in promiscuous mode on a port on a network switch, not all of the traffic traveling through the switch will necessarily be sent to the port on which the capture is being done, so capturing in promiscuous mode will not necessarily be sufficient to see all traffic on the network. Port mirroring or various network taps extend capture to any point on net; simple passive taps are extremely resistant to malware tampering.
On Linux, BSD, and Mac OS X, with libpcap 1.0.0 or later, Wireshark 1.4 and later can also put wireless network interface controllers into monitor mode.

Wireshark is software that "understands" the structure of different networking protocols. Thus, it is able to display the encapsulation and the fields along with their meanings of different packets specified by different networking protocols. Wireshark uses pcap to capture packets, so it can only capture the packets on the types of networks that pcap supports.
  • Data can be captured "from the wire" from a live network connection or read from a file that recorded already-captured packets.
  • Live data can be read from a number of types of network, including Ethernet, IEEE 802.11, PPP, and loopback.
  • Captured network data can be browsed via a GUI, or via the terminal (command line) version of the utility, TShark.
  • Captured files can be programmatically edited or converted via command-line switches to the "editcap" program.
  • Data display can be refined using a display filter.
  • Plug-ins can be created for dissecting new protocols.
  • VoIP calls in the captured traffic can be detected. If encoded in a compatible encoding, the media flow can even be played.
  • Raw USB traffic can be captured.

POWERFUL VIRTUALIZATION SOFTWARE

VMware Player is a freeware virtualization software package from VMware, Inc. (a company which was formerly a division of and whose majority shareholder remains EMC Corporation). VMware Player can run existing virtual appliances and create its own virtual machines (which require an operating system to be installed to be functional). It uses the same virtualization core as VMware Workstation, a similar program with more features, but not free of charge. VMware Player is available for personal non-commercial use, or for distribution or other use by written agreement.No support is provided by VMWare, but there is an active community website for discussing and resolving issues.
VMware claims the Player offers better graphics, faster performance, and tighter integration for running Windows XP under Windows Vista or Windows 7 than Microsoft's Windows XP Mode running on Windows Virtual PC, which is free of charge for all purposes.

Versions earlier than 3 of VMware Player were unable to create virtual machines (VMs), which had to be created by an application with the capability, or created manually by statements stored in a text file with extension ".vmx"; later versions can create VMs. The features of Workstation not available in Player are "developer-centric features such as Teams, multiple Snapshots and Clones, and Virtual Rights Management features for end-point security", and support by VMWare. Player allows a complete virtual machine to be copied at any time by copying a directory; while not a fully featured snapshot facility, this allows a copy of a machine in a particular state to be stored, and reverted to later if desired, e.g. after a demonstration or a virus infection test.
VMware Player is also supplied with the VMware Workstation distribution, for use in installations where not all client users are licensed to use the full VMware Workstation. An IT administrator can distribute a virtual machine created by Workstation to computers running Player without paying for additional VMware Workstation licenses.

POWERFUL HOST-BASED IDS


Open Source Tripwire is a free software security and data integrity tool useful for monitoring and alerting on specific file change(s) on a range of systems. The project is based on code originally contributed by Tripwire, Inc. in 2000.
Open Source Tripwire functions as a host-based intrusion detection system. Rather than attempting to detect intrusions at the network interface level (as in network intrusion detection systems), Open Source Tripwire detects changes to file system objects.
When first initialized, Open Source Tripwire scans the file system as directed by the administrator and stores information on each file scanned in a database. At a later date the same files are scanned and the results compared against the stored values in the database. Changes are reported to the user. Cryptographic hashes are employed to detect changes in a file without storing the entire contents of the file in the database.
While useful for detecting intrusions after the event, it can also serve many other purposes, such as integrity assurance, change management, and policy compliance.

Personally, I use Tripwire in a simple CentOS server, and have configured it to automatically send me and email after a period of time, and it works just great!

DRIVE A NEW MERCEDEZ BENZ CLC COUPE

If you've always dreamed of driving a Mercedes but can't afford one, this could be an intermediate solution while you're saving money.
Mercedes CLC Dream Test Drive puts you behind the steering-wheel of the awesome Mercedes CLC Coupé. The game is free though quite limited, as it only includes two gaming modes: a race against five other computer-controlled Mercedes through the streets of London and a single lap time trial against your personal best record. At least the scenarios are pretty realistic, giving you the opportunity to do some high-speed sightseeing around London or enjoy cool races at night.

The only choice of car available is obviously a Mercedes, but there are some customization options available such as changing color or getting new wheels. There are also three different difficulty levels that tailor the game to your driving skills.
That said, the truth is that Mercedes CLC Dream Test Drive is not a very fun driving game and it has some surprisingly odd characteristics, like the absence of driver or the fact that the car is not affected by crashes. In a way it feels more like an interactive ad than a real computer game, so unless you're a fan of the famous German car brand, I'd recommend downloading other driving games before this one.

FULL-FEATURED MULTIMEDIA PLAYER
MediaMonkey is an audio tool that allows you to play, burn, tag, and organize music supported by the most popular audio formats.

The installation process takes little time to complete, and you have the possibility of installing MediaMonkey as a portable version, in case you don't want to risk changing the system registry files.
The user interface is pretty standard. Thanks to the well-developed online help section, users can learn how to navigate through MediaMonkey.


Party Mode is a feature of MediaMonkey that prevents any modifications from being made to your files, or to the configuration of the software, while Sleep mode allows you to configure the time to play, whether to shutdown at the end, or gradually fade the volume.

Categories include Music, Podcast, Playlists, Media Servers, and Net Radio (access to the SHOUTcast and Icecast radio).

Track managing includes editing track properties and album information, album art, auto-tag from filename, converting formats, and others. In addition, you can burn an audio CD, data CD/DVD/BD, or erase it.


For some reason, even when MediaMonkey is not performing a task, CPU and memory resources are considerably used.

The truth is that MediaMonkey has a lot of features and buttons, but they are not very well organized. Plus, the interface is too large for a media player (you have to maximize it to easily navigate). And you have to get the MediaMonkey Gold to access more advanced features.

The bottom line is that MediaMonkey still needs some work, but it's not to be ignored either. It basically intends to cover all features in the audio department. And it's free to try!

STOP WASTING MONEY ON MICROSOFT VISIO

Dia is free and open source general-purpose diagramming software, developed originally by Alexander Larsson. Dia uses a controlled single document interface (CSDI) similar to GIMP and Inkscape.



Dia has a modular design with several shape packages available for different needs: flowchart, network diagrams, circuit diagrams, and more. It does not restrict symbols and connectors from various categories from being placed together.
Dia has special objects to help draw entity-relationship models (tedia2sql can be used to create the SQL DDL), Unified Modeling Language (UML) diagrams, flowcharts, network diagrams, and simple electrical circuits. It is also possible to add support for new shapes by writing simple XML files, using a subset of Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) to draw the shape.
Dia loads and saves diagrams in a custom XML format, which is, by default, gzipped to save space, and can print large diagrams spanning multiple pages. It can also be scripted using the Python programming language.
