Quick Tips

Quick Folder Options

We’ve talked about hidden files before, right? Browse to the Control Panel, click folder options, blah, blah, blah. Practically drilled into our head by this point eh? Well, let’s put the Windows 7/Vista Search Bar to work then, shall we?

If you’re switching back and forth between showing hidden files and re-hiding them, then taking a step out of the process should be welcome. So, instead of slogging through menus to get to the Folder Options, why not just type in “folder” in the Search Bar?


The very top selection that pops up will be “Folder Options”.


Why go through the hassle when you can be there now?

A Communication REVOLUTION is Here...

And It'll COMPLETELY Change The Way You Do E-Mail!

V-Mail Records Your Voice Message...

And Sends it As an MP3 to ANY E-Mail!

Unlimited Message Time...MP3 Format...EASY TO USE!

No Special Software Required - Anyone Can Receive Your Messages!

If You Can Speak and Push a Button...You Can Do it!


E-mail is a wonderful way to keep in touch with friends and family. It's free, it's fun, it's been around since the internet began! Remember how excited you used to get when you booted up and heard that friendly voice tell you that "You've Got Mail?"

Only problem is, typing e-mails can take a long time! Maybe you're super popular, maybe you're always busy, or maybe you're just a really slow typer. So e-mailing can go from fun to tedious in no time if you have about 10 e-mails to reply to and not enough hours in the day to do them. After a while, it starts affecting the way you communicate because you don't have the time nor hand-strength to be as articulate as you'd like.

There's GOTTA be a better way...right?

There is - And it'll Change Your Life!

Let's just get this outta the way now: THIS THING IS AWESOME! Sometimes a piece of technology comes along that changes the way we do EVERYTHING! This is one of them.

What's it do? V-Mail is a recording device program that you hook up to your computer. It's simple to hook up, and once installed, it does three things: records your voice message and converts it to MP3, and then allows you to send the message with one click as an e-mail! It's that simple! You'll NEVER have to type an e-mail again, and no matter who you send it to, they'll be able to open the message and listen to the MP3!

Never again will you have to sit at your computer cramping up your hands and wasting your precious time! IF YOU CAN SAY IT, YOU CAN SEND IT!

The Best Part?

IT'S SIMPLE TO USE! You'll be walked through the SUPER-EASY set up, and once it's ready, all you have to do is sit there and talk. There is NO TIME LIMIT on the messages you send, so no matter what you have to say, it'll be recorded and sent! Not only will this make it simple for you, anyone receiving your messages can sit and listen instead of trying to decipher what you've typed!


Press "Record" and record your message...
Hit "Send" and it'll AUTOMATICALLY attach your voice message to an e-mail in your favorite e-mail client...
Click the "Send" button in your e-mail. CONGRATULATIONS! You've just sent a V-mail!
That's it!


Don't Send "Letters..." Send Your Voice!

So whether you're a business person, or just using e-mail to keep in touch with friends and family - this is MUCH more personable, and it makes online communications a breeze!


So don't worry - nobody has to have a special type of software or anything - this thing is SIMPLE! It'll send just like a regular e-mail, and when the person you sent it to opens it, it'll simply open as an MP3 file and AUTOMATICALLY play!

Typing an E-Mail is Now COMPLETELY Obselete!

Keeping in Touch Has NEVER Been So Awesome!

Thanks to this new piece of technological ingenuity, you'll be able to communicate CLEARLY and EFFECTIVELY without EVER having to sit at your keyboard and type! Think of the time you'll save, the hand-cramps that you WON'T get...the CLEAR communication...IT GETS NO BETTER THAN THIS!


Talk about cool - this thing will fit in the palm of your hand! It will take up almost none of your desk space, sitting perfectly next to your lap top or desk top computer - and after the SIMPLE initial set up, sending a "V-Mail" is AS SIMPLE AS RECORDING AND SENDING! Yeah...two buttons and you're done!

Oh, and just another little cool fact - this also works with any MP3 player! So if you have a content specific "V-Mail," like giving directions on how to get somewhere - whoever you send it to can drag and drop the file onto their MP3 player and take it with them on the road! It's a communication revolution!

And It's Yours For an Amazing Price!

Today we're feeling CRAZY. We'll let this AMAZING new take on E-Mail go for the ULTRA LOW PRICE of just $24.97 with FREE US SHIPPING! Go ahead and scour the web if you want. You will not find it cheaper anywhere else!

PS: Yes, you guessed it - we have a limited quantity of these on hand, and if we don't sell out of them today, we have to up the price to $32.97 tonight. The choice is yours. Get it now!

Tip of the Day

How to Mount a Drive in Windows 7

Mounting is an advanced disk management technique by which you can map an empty folder on any other hard disk partition. Let’s say you used to work on an important folder present inside the C drive, but now the drive has no space left. Now you are unable to create or copy any new file inside the folder of C drive. By using the mounting feature, you can create new empty subfolders within the important folder, and mount any other drive of your computer to that subfolder.

In other words, mounting creates a link between two different drives. You can easily create or save any new file inside your favorite folder, because now the space used will be that of the mounted drive. This is a step by step guide to mount and dismount a drive in Windows PC.

How to mount a drive

COMODO Firewall FREE Part 1: Initial Setup

While a proper antivirus program (such as COMODO Antivirus) is essential to keeping your computer safe and virus free, there is another additional piece of software that is just as important to securing your computer from malicious hackers and rogue programs: the Firewall.

In its most basic form, a firewall will monitor and stop unauthorized entry into, or exit from, your computer from/to any external networks (such as the internet) thereby protecting your system from attacks and intrusions. While some firewalls give you only the most basic protection from such threats, COMODO firewall goes above and beyond by providing a wealth of options to fully secure your computer with ease; all for FREE! How do you take advantage of COMODO’s free firewall options? Read on:

Step 1. Normally, you will want to run only a single firewall on your computer at any given time; as running more than one Firewall increases the likelihood of major conflicts and problems between the firewalls. That said, if you have a firewall from another software vendor (such as Norton or McAfee) uninstall or disable it before proceeding.

If you have not previously installed a firewall you may still have one installed without your knowledge: the “Windows Firewall” which is installed by default with most versions of Windows. To shut off the Windows Firewall, perform the following:

Step 1-1. Open the Start menu by clicking on the “Start” button.

Step 1-2. Click “Control Panel.” the Windows control panel appears.

Click here for the rest!

Split Rock Moonrise

The day this was created was the day after the full moon, with moonrise coinciding with sunset pretty closely. I knew from checking my compass that the moon would be in a good location, but you can imagine my disappointment when... (More)

We had scouted this area out the day before and the image you see before you was the one idea that kept sanding out in my mind. From the bridge, I knew if I could talk myself into wading out into the chilly river I’d likely have... (More)
