Scott's GMail Alert is a kick-ass GMail, Google Calendar, and RSS notifier (Download Squad)

Oct 14th 2009 2:57PM @Lee Mathews, you are correct about the Google Apps thing. It should also be worth pointing out that this program does have some GUI issues and follows absolutely no GUI guidelines :-P It looks like it was thrown together!

Oct 14th 2009 1:33PM Show stopper: Doesn't support Google Apps accounts - hardcodes @gmail.com into the e-mail address.

Google's got a new Chrome beta - if you can get it (Download Squad)

Mar 17th 2009 5:55PM Interesting, this .application file would only execute properly if I downloaded it using Internet Explorer. Not Chrome or Firefox.

Windows XP goes bye bye (Download Squad)

Jul 1st 2008 7:08PM >> just like there are good reasons to upgrade to Vista

Uh, name one, please. I dare you.

The fact of the matter is, there is no "good" reason to upgrade to Vista. Aero is crap. UAC is a joke.

Jun 30th 2008 1:56AM Uh, you can do this with TweakUI (for XP) on Vista!

Make sure you run TweakUI in Windows XP compatibility mode though... (Right Click -> Properties)

Firefox 3 basically finished for Windows/Linux, a few more fixes for Mac (Download Squad)

Jun 12th 2008 5:30AM Is this a joke? Still can't even get 100/100 on ACID3. Lame. Webkit FTW.

As June 30th approaches, are you stocking up on Windows XP licenses? (Download Squad)

Jun 5th 2008 5:15PM Actually, to amend my previous comment, the downgrade rights may only apply to Volume License and/or Select/Enterprise agreement licenses. I am not sure if the same rules apply to retail licenses as obtained by Newegg (as mentioned in comment #2.

Anyway, people are making a big fuss about not being able to buy XP Pro for no reason. While I absolutely will not touch Vista with a 10 foot pole, I am not worried because I will continue to use XP until 2014 or whenever Microsoft will stop supporting it.

Jun 5th 2008 5:12PM It is not necessary to "stock up" on XP licenses as Microsoft's EULA states that users have downgrade privileges. Simply buying a Vista equivalent to XP Pro (Vista Business or greater) you can downgrade to XP by using the same license. This has always been the case with Microsoft products.

Q: If I have Windows Vista Enterprise, what can I downgrade to?
A: Downgrade rights in the Volume Licensing programs provide customers with the right to downgrade to any prior version of the same product. Windows Vista Enterprise is a new type of product and does not have a prior version. However, customers licensed for use of Windows Vista Enterprise are licensed for Windows Vista Business, and it can be downgraded to the Windows XP Professional...

Firefox 3 to get at least one more release candidate (Download Squad)

May 29th 2008 3:59AM Per http://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox3/StatusMeetings/2008-05-27#Round_table it suggests that RC2 will actually be released today (2008-05-29) not in June.
