LifeHacker features AiO-SRT, Server Overloaded!

My All in One – System Rescue Toolkit was featured on LifeHacker this weekend.  A very big thanks to Alan Henry for his review of my utility disc!

Since then, this website has been overloaded with requests and I am awaiting upgrades that should allow me to double the amount of traffic I can receive at any given moment.

The Google Drive direct download link has already hit its download limit for 24 hours, however the BitTorrent download is very healthy with a couple hundred seeders at the moment.

Thank you all for your interest and I hope that the website runs less sluggish as time goes on and the upgrades come into place.

Here is the excerpt and link to the LifeHacker article:

There’s no shortage of system rescue and repair discs you can download and keep handy for when your PC gives you problems, but this one, from reader Paul, is streamlined, simple, and has only a few effective tools on it (and no bloat!)

Making Facebook Usable Again!

I just found an awesome plugin called “FB Purity” which stands for “Fluff Busting Purity”.

Before I get into what this plugin does, think back to the earlier days of Facebook.  Find your family and friends, see what they are up to in their life, keep in touch.  Social media was simple and direct.  Facebook is so commercialized now that the built-in tools just don’t care about this experience that brought everyone in to begin with.

All in One – System Rescue Toolkit, first week success!

Last week, I released my toolkit free for public use and download.  1 week later, over 120 unique downloads so far!  That is amazing how many people have taken an interest in such a short time frame!

Please continue to download and share this great utility that I use and hope you will enjoy using to repair common Windows Server and PC related issues!

Going forward, I will be releasing an “AiO-SRT Lite” version that contains only the 100% automated tasks and should be sufficient enough for people to download and fix some problems or at least generate log files to give to their technician to help repair common Windows PC problems.

“AiO-SRT Lite” will not contain the live CD environment or any real technician utilites and should be simple enough for the average PC user to download and run without having to do any manual tinkering “under the hood” and risk breaking stuff.

Look for the new automated “Lite” version coming soon!

Laser Pointers Blind Pilots

Click here for a related CNN report on lasers blinding pilots

Laser pointers can be cool toys, but they also pose a serious blinding risk.  DO NOT SHINE THEM AT PEOPLE.  These videos show the view from a pilot’s perspective when someone shines the light at an airplane.  We put pilots in charge of transporting hundreds of people in an airplane safely to a destination, I am sure the last thing you want when you are on the plane is a blind pilot.

Educate anyone you know that has these laser pointers and uses them as a toy on this danger.  It is also apparently considered an attack on the airplane and leads to FBI arresting an individual in the next video.

 

Liz Marks Texting & Driving Story – YouTube

 

distraction.gov is a website setup by the US DOT using ad campaigns and educational resources to warn people about the dangers of texting and driving.  I think the public needs to be exposed more to the not so lucky cases as is the case with this girl who seems to barely manage escaping death.

I think that all too often we take the grittiness of life and death and hide it away that people just don’t have a clue about the reality of dangerous behaviors such as texting and driving.
