Chrome Remote Desktop Application

Chrome Remote Desktop allows you to set up your computer for secure remote access. This includes setting up your computer so that you can access it later from another machine, for example, when you need to access your home computer from your office computer. Or you can also use the app to let a friend remotely access your computer temporarily, perfect for times when you need help solving a computer problem.

The ability to give remote access to the technical expert may help you to resolve technical issues with your computer much faster and much more efficient. Troubleshooting customer issues, I know how it may be misleading to give instructions over the phone, and how much time it takes to reach the desirable goals.

All connections are fully secured, but the Chome browser should be installed on both machines to enable direct dialog.

Chrome Remote Desktop is fully cross-platform.  It provides remote assistance to Windows, Mac and Linux users, accessing Windows (XP and above) and Mac (OS X 10.6 and above) desktops at any time, all from the Chrome browser on virtually any device, including Chromebooks.

How to Send Fax for Free? FaxORama!

The modern documentation transfer trends are not in favor of faxes. Once very popular, this method is now considered outdated due to the necessity to have additional equipment, phone line connection, and quality limitations on the obtained results. It is much easier to scan the document to PDF and transfer it as email attachment, or any other way if it is too big to be attached to the email.

However, there are still commercial and governmental entities, who may require you to send fax, and will not accept any alternative ways.

You always may use Post Office or Internet Café to send a fax, but it is quite expensive, and you have to get there. The free services, offered by FaxORama, may be exactly what you need to resolve the problem, especially when you do not have to send faxes too often.

Funny and Creative Automatic Insult Generator

I bet there are not many of you are who are truly creative in insulting people the smart way. Here, with free service you can get artistic assistance in preparing your next insult as piece of art.

Using this service, you can insult people you know or hate with a prank page full of links to fake news and funny image generators (person’s name will show up in actual images that are downloadable).

Just send them a link (you can send out as a free anonymous e-card with a personalized evil message) to a URL/domain with their name in it (like http://www.george-bush.is-a-jerk.com for example). You can also change the name "on the fly" by editing the web address to look like http://your.name.is-a-jerk.com (both dots and dashes work as name spaces/separators).

Grab the "copy & paste" HTML codes from created pages so you can add the animated insulter to your blog or websites. Try it out, you won't be the first or last!

There are almost 1,000 mean randomized insults! Each time the Macromedia Flash movie loads, 20 insults are loaded and looped over for infinity. There are several mellow background musical melodies that are random too. You can send the insult page to someone as a prank e-card (gag e-cards are much fun to pass around) with a small special message you customize (you can even make it look like it came from another email address).

Thinking about the next victim for the test run, I used the name of Gerard Depardieu, who recently made a huge fun of himself, immigrating to Russia and getting Russian citizenship.

By the way – the fresh rumor, that his apartment in Chechnya, given to him by the territory's leader Ramzan Kadyrov, has burnt out today. He should expect something like that, while deciding to change Western Europe for Mid-Russia.

Here is animation, I got for him (individual link: http://www.gerard-depardieu.is-a-jerk.com/).
