CheckMail is a powerful POP3 email checking program; it notifies you when you have received new email. With CheckMail you can check all your email accounts for new messages and preview or delete them before downloading to your computer.

Open the Mystery Case Files

Wednesday, January 31st, 2007

mysterycasefilesra_feature.jpgThe latest in the Mystery Case Files series, Mystery Case Files: Ravenhearst. This popular graphic adventure puzzle game series adds a new adventure, and like the others it’s a free download for the 75Mb demo files, but you have to pay for the rest of the game. Very shrewd strategy, because once you play the demo through you really start to want the rest.

You see there are rumors surrounding the history of stately Ravenhearst Manor. The diary of Emma Ravenhearst holds the key to the story behind the manor, but conveniently some pages are missing… Gasp. But you are the Master Detective and it is up to you to unlock secrets of Ravenhearst, searching over 30 rooms for graphical clues.


HDDlife: Keeping your hard disk’s health in check

Wednesday, January 31st, 2007

If you have ever been worried about the possibility of hard drive failure, I have two pieces of advice for you. First of all you should always backup any important or irreplaceable stuff. Secondly, you could use a hard drive “health” monitoring program such as HDDlife.

It’s a real-time hard drive monitoring utility with alerts, malfunction protection and data loss prevention functions. HDDLife uses S.M.A.R.T. technology,(most modern drives support this) and works both for single PCs and large computer networks. S.M.A.R.T. technology was developed by hard drive manufacturers to accurately predict hard drive life span and prevent hard drive malfunctions.

HDDLife displays S.M.A.R.T. attributes in real-time and alerts you if particular hard-drive attributes exceed threshold values and are at risk. You can then backup data and/or replace endangered hard drives.It also tells you the temperature of your hard drive and you can even control the noise/performance aspects of it. It loads at Windows startup, compares new attribute values with the previous values and doesn’t use much memory. The program is extremely straightforward – so no technical knowledge of PC or hard drive technology is needed at all in order to use it. It comes in paid versions and a freeware version.

All in all, its a pretty impressive little program for anyone who wants that little bit of extra peace of mind about their stored data.

Galaxy Guard is nice and simple game with cool graphics. In the game you are expected to destroy as many enemies as you can and stay alive to reach the enemy’s base.

PC Decrapifier: Rid your PC of unwanted software

Tuesday, January 30th, 2007

1213412314123121412.jpgWhen you’ve just bought a new computer, it usually comes preloaded with numerous “Helpful” programs, most of which you’ll never use. They’ll usually only serve to slow your new computer down to a crawl. Think of “PC Decrapifier” as an automatic garbage cleaner for them! Even if your computer isn’t brand new, but still has some pre-installed garbage on it, you can use it to get rid of some of those difficult to remove, factory-installed applications.

It was originally called the Dell Decrapifier but the author decided to rename it to the more politically correct PC Decrapifier. After all, Dell is not the only manufacturer that does this. This is a most welcome and much needed program to simplify the removal of some of those difficult to remove, factory-installed, unwanted applications.
