Notice: Undefined offset: 2 in /home/tiplabs/public_html/mainfile.php on line 214 Warning: date(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

Forget your KVM, use Synergy to control multiple machines:

This is one of the coolest apps to come out in a while. Synergy allows you to run a client/server application between two or more machines. On the master machine you specify where on the screen you will activate another computer. When you mouse over to that edge of the screen your mouse will appear on the other computers monitor and you can use your keyboard and mouse from the first computer to control it. This software does not allow for running headless computers but allows you to cluster a whole bunch of monitors around you and control all the computers from one keyboard and mouse and not have to switch to each like a KVM requires.

It is similar to remote desktop except you can use multiple monitors connected the different machines and literally control them from the same keyboard and mouse on all the machines. In fact you can do this with Windows, Linux, and Mac computers since it is platform neutral. Very cool and the best part its FREE.

http://synergy2.sourceforge.net
=================================================

Use MaxiVista to share monitors, duplicate displays, and control PCs:

MaxiVista is similar to synergy except it can do a few extras including just duplicating your current display to a number of others. It can also let you make one big screen by chaining screens together to make one big desktop. You can copy paste from one window to the other sharing the clipboard. While this is not free it is only $30.

Check out the demo here:

Use nuTsie to play iTunes music on your high-speed 3G cell:

If you are sporting around town with a high-speed 3G equipped cell-phone and use iTunes then this is for you. nuTsie uses java-enabled phones to run the cell application, so check for your phone support.

The way it works is like this:

- You register for a nuTsie account.

- Next you export your iTunes library information and upload the XML file to their site.

- nuTsie will then parse out all of the artists, albums, songs, and play lists from your library and make the songs available on their website or when you login via your cell-phone. NOTE: This can take hours depending on your library.

When streaming to your phone the buffering only takes a second or two and the quality is very good.

A few drawbacks currently are that you cannot delete anything once added, play anything other than a play list or full shuffle.

Bottom line its a decent app and FREE.

Multi-IM shootout between Trillian, Gaim/Pidgin and Miranda:

Being a long time trillian and linux user, friends continuously hound me to look at other options such as gaim/pidgin. Finally under the pressure I decided to give them a shot, here is what I found:

Trillian:

Being a long time user I have come to use this as the defacto standard for Multi-IM clients. While there are the occasional problems where AIM will always change their protocol to keep Trillian users out of their network, the guys at Trillian always get it back usually in a day. Very impressive. Pros and Cons:

+ Setting a custom away message
+ Ability to see all users whether online or not
+ Setting timestamps on in the chat window to know when messages arrive
+ Supports last time seen on-line, a feature I use often

- Professional version is not free
- Limited number of protocols (only majors AIM, ICQ, MSN, Yahoo, IRC)
- Does not immediately put you away when locking the computer

http://www.trillian.cc

Pidgin (formally GAIM):

In latest rankings this has come in at #2 among users. I loaded this up and found install and setup to be straight forward. I played with it for a while and found it to be more lightweight than Trillian. Pros and Cons:

+ Supports most number of protocols including Google Talk and Sametime (15+ total)
+ Light-weight

- Problem joining MSN chats, which was a show stopper for me
- Not clear on which network buddies are on without mousing over buddy
(for example Trillian puts colored dots next to each to show network and status)
- Offline users are not displayed

http://pidgin.im

Miranda:

Multi-IM users rate this as the #1 client. However it must be hype that many people claim this is number one. The reason is that Miranda by far has the least features in it. It is tiny in size and resources making it the most light-weight of the bunch. Pros and Cons:

+ Offers good number of protocols including Jabber (10+ total)
+ Most light-weight of all

- Very limited feature set
- No last time on support
- No emoticons!

http://www.miranda-im.org

Meebo:

Dont forget when your out and dont want to install any client Meebo turns your web brower into a multi-im client. Good for on the go. See our previous story on it here:
