Lost Microsoft Product Keys?

WinKeyFinder 1.72.20 Final is the one-stop solution for lost product keys. Load this bad boy up, let 'er rip, and find all those product keys you shouldn't have thrown away. Works for all Windows - 2000, 95, 98, ME, and XP. Also works with MS Works, Office 95, 97, 2000, XP, and 2003 (all editions!).

Who wants encrypted e-mail?

I work with a lot if medical organizations that must comply with HIPAA. All of them have and use e-mail, and they all swear that they're not exchanging personally identifiable protected health information (PHI) via unencrypted e-mail. However, many have been exchanging financial data through this medium.

I know that some of you reading this can think of many instances where it is better that a third party not read your e-mail, either because it contains sensitive financial info or you need to share health information more freely.

How interested are you? Tell me via the comment button below. IThis is very inexpensive, using freely available tools. These same tools make it simple to get going, and even simpler to exchange e-mail in a safe and compliant manner.

If the feedback is positive, I'll devote my next blog entry to a step-by-step how-to.

Cool Windows Screensavers

Does you sysadmin allow you to pick your screensaver? In not, then go home and read the rest of this! But if you're working in a low security environment, and have an itch for something different from that plain old bouncing logon box, go to and pick out a pretty one. These are open-source, and safe for use at work as they are free of spyware and adware.
