A good archive solution

Friday, 31st August 2007 11:17pm
One of the best archive tools that I have come across is IZArc and it supports almost every archive format available at the moment.

What I find most useful is the fact that you can you can use the tool to open CD image files like ISO, BIN, CDI and NRG and the tool can also be used as a converter for those files, say convert from BIN to ISO.

However, this tool is only available for the Windows platform including Windows Vista and on Ubuntu File Roller might be the option for a tool with a graphical user interface.

Another file archiver that I also use is 7-Zip which is also open source and the developers say that there is a port of the command line version to Linux.

ISP provided security

Wednesday, 29th August 2007 6:53am
Last week I received a letter from my ISP, Optus offering a free security package for one year which includes a firewall, anti-virus, parental control, anti-spam and anti-spyware tools.

I have known about this offer for some time now and basically you get F-secure products for free for the first year and after that you then have to pay some amount per month. I think its actually a good idea to offer consumers the security suite but I think its also good for F-secure if after one year some of the people decide to continue with the suite.

What I find good and interesting is that the download for the security suite does not count towards your broadband usage for that particular month.

I will not be going for the offer myself because I think firewall wise I am okay with Comodo and for the anti-virus I think AVG Anti-Virus is doing a good job for me.
