ControlPad

ControlPad can help turn the numeric keypad on your keyboard to a
Windows command execution system. The numeric keys can be configured
to eecute any program, open any document, open any web address or send
any series of keystrokes to the operating system. Using ControlPad is
easy - open the programme, press and hold the * key on the numeric
keypad, for about a second. This would make a small window to pop up
to let the entry of any keyword or numeric code. Pressing the code
followed by Enter will execute the associated command. Laptop users
(without a numeric keypad) need to use F12 key, press and hold it
instead of * as the launch key. ControlPad is customizable, you can
configure the location of your commands file - for easy backup, Change
almost every aspect of the user interface like colors, transparency,
size, font, and Change sounds / add your own. A command can be
anything you can run from the Windows Run dialog (programs, documents,
web addresses) or any series of simulated keystrokes (e.g. Ctrl+C then
Ctrl+V). The setup file of ControlPad has a simple installer and
uninstaller. ControlPad does not register anything in the Windows
registry, aver its developers.

ControlPad v0.65 can be downloaded at
http://sector-seven.net/downloads/controlpad/ControlPad_Setup.exe

Virtual PC

If you, like me, frequently install and uninstall software your PC
could slow down or perform poorly. Solution? Use Microsoft's Virtual
PC to keep the main OS fresh and quick. For example, Vista users can
try out XP compatible applications without having to format the system
- Just Install XP on the Virtual PC and try the various applications,
games that are Compatible with XP but not with Vista. Whenever a new
application, or a game or a browser add-on needs to be tried, just
install them on the Virtual PC. If found ok these can be then
installed in the main System. Deploying Virtual PC can be ideal to
browse the web to ensure that the main OS Is safe from malware or
trojan attacks, or whatever, courtesy the Internet. Also, the advance
users can try experimenting with registry hacks without a care about
the crashing of the system, thanks to Virtual PC. You can add
additional virtual hard drives, connect the LAN of the Host and do
Possibly everything with Virtual PC. Obviously if the main system is
formatted all configurations of the Virtual PC would be lost.

Microsoft's Virtual PC can be downloaded at http://snipurl.com/microsoftvirtualpc

JDVoiceMail

JDVoiceMail, a file compression utility, can help email voice messages
- full length voice messages via email that are super compressed and
therefore are very small attachments. The USP of JDVoiceMail is that
it can reduce the size of a normal audio file by 10 to 16 times.
JDVoiceMail is easy to use - Click the Rec button and begin
recording your voice email message, and when you are done click on
Stop. You can either send the voice message using your default email
client or save it as a MP3 or WAV file. You can also choose the codec
you want to use for compression using the configuration/Codec
Options. The compression codecs can really reduce the size of files,
for example: 30 seconds of audio with the DSP True Speech Codec is
only 32 KB, and 30 seconds of audio with the GSM 6.10 is only 50 KB.
As the the output of the file would be in MP3 or WAV formats the
receiver can play the audio messages using the Windows Media Player or
any other.

JDVoiceMail can be downloaded at ttp://www.jdvoicemail.altervista.org/

Podcatcher

Robert's Podcatcher can download podcasts audio/video files to your
computer. The podcatcher is designed with both a user interface, and
a background service. The latter is better and is less intrusive,
provides automatic timed podcatching. The podcatcher's user interface
is intuitive, useful. It registers no DLL's, does not require .NET,
and can be installed to, and run from, your MP3 player. It downloads
all new podcasts in a given RSS feed, not just the top one. The
podcaster also lets you load your player with songs randomly selected
from your MP3 collection. The Random MP3 Loader manages these songs,
does not mix them them up with the other songs, keeps the random ones
in separate directories on your player.

Robert's Podcatcher for Win2K / WinXP / Vista has been released as
freeware, can be downloaded at
http://home.comcast.net/~rschoolf/podcatcher/index.html

Use Address bar effectively - Easy address bar commands

You are already familiar with quite a few browser address bar shortcuts. For instance, type some text in the address bar of your browser (e.g. apple) , press Ctrl + Enter and the browser will automatically send you to the corresponding .com website (in this case, www.apple.com) Or type in some complex search query (e.g., site:firefox.com internet explorer) in the address bar, hit go and the browser will show results from your default search engine*. The address bar of Google Chrome is even smarter as it can offer live suggestions while you are typing the search query.

Other than these built-in shortcuts, you may also want to know about a couple of URL hacks (a better term would be "address bar commands") that let you do stuff from the address bar itself  – they are pretty easy to remember and don't require you to install any bookmarklets or add-ons (so you can use them on any computer and even some mobile phones).

1. Capture a screenshot – Go to your browser's address bar, type aviary.com before the http:// part of the URL and hit Enter. Aviary will immediately capture a full screenshot image of the web page that's currently open in your browser – here's an example.

2. Download videos – If you are like to download a YouTube video, just add deturl.com/ before www to the URL or just add pwn infornt of youtube … see examples (http://deturl.com/www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYcePOTV1nA or http://www.pwnyoutube.com/watch?v=TYcePOTV1nA ) and you'll be able to save the video in either Flash or Quicktime format. This is a pretty useful option for mobile phones that don't support the flash player but can play Quicktime.

3. Shrink the address – There are about a million URL shortening services out there but if you want to quickly shrink the URL from the address bar itself try this – just type bit.ly before the URL and it give you the short form on the next screen. Example (http://site4sites.co.in change it to http://bit.ly/http://site4sites.co.in )

4. Email a web page – If you want to email a link of the current web page to a contact or to your own self, here's a trick. Just type the mailto command in the address bar and this will compose a new message in your default email program – you can have the URL of the page in either the body of the message or in the subject line itself.

mailto:mohan@site4sites.co.in?body=http://google.com/ (change to your email id at my email ID)

5. Share or bookmark a web page - If you find the above email command a bit scary, here's something simpler. Go the address bar of your browser and type smub.it/ just before the URL as in this example. You can then share that page on any social site or even send the link to your friends via email. A perfect option for mobile phones.

6. Who owns that website – If you want to know the email address and other contact details of the owner of a site, the whois record of that site can sometimes help. To view the whois details of the current site, type whois.domaintools.com/ in the address bar (just before the http:// part) and there you have all the information – see example.

7. Send yourself notesFutz.me is a free service that lets you email text notes, hyperlinks and even images from the right the address bar of your browser.

Go to the address bar, type futz.me/xyz followed by a space (xyz is your unique username) and anything that's after the space will be sent to your email address. If you use Futz.me with a URL that points to an image, the image will be sent you via an email attachment or even through MMS (if you are in the US).

8. Mobile friendly web – If you are reading web pages on a mobile phone, you can easily convert the current page into a mobile friendly version by adding http://mopwn.com/ in front of the URL in your address bar as in this example. Internally, the mopwn service will simply forward your request to Google Transcoder but it's still very handy.

9. When the default is not Google – When you type a search phrase in the address bar of your browser, the query gets executed using the default search engine which is Google in both Firefox and Google Chrome (factory settings).

Now if you are using IE with Bing or have manually changed the default to something else, here's how you can still query Google from the address bar without changing any of the current settings. Go to the address bar and type gog.is followed by the search terms. For instance, gog.is/digital,inspiration will show Google pages for "Digital Inspiration".
