Local host.

LocalHost. Very interesting Java based Open Source online file sharing application which combines a kind of wiki-like group access and editing facilty with the BitTorrent engine. What’s really funky is that the more popular a file or folder is, the more accessible it is. Still under heavy development by the looks of it (needs a nicer UI) so don’t cuss about the access speeds. Neat and definitely worth a download. [Thanks Tom]  You can change any folder (including the root…

Greasemap.

Greasemap is a cool little freeware tool that automatically embeds a Google map at the top of the screen when you browse a web page with an address on it. It needs Greasemonkey in order to work. I had it installed for a bit, but turned it off when I found it was slowing down my page accesses a bit. Still, pretty cool tech all round.  Greasemap…augments any web page you visit by searching the page for geocodeable addresses or other…

Project Internet chat.

Project Gizmo. OK listen up. It’s another day, and another Skype bashing free Internet telephone program. Yes? No? Who cares?  It springs fairy-like from Michael ‘MP3.COM’ Robertson’s brain, which could be good or bad depending on your religion.  Plus points –  SIP compatible, as opposed to Skype proprietary P2P.   Call recording built in. Free voicemail (Skype charges for this). Negative points? The Michael Robertson hype machine? More here.
