This looks particularly powerful for researching computer glitch error messages that are often buried deep in computer and software manufacturers' FAQ sections on the Web.

Picture yourself after a disaster in your home - a fire - flood or theft. The grief from the loss of a lifelong collection of furniture, collectables, paintings, jewelry, and just plain old family memorabilia, is just the beginning. The gut wrenching chore of itemizing all of your possessions follows any catastrophe like this.

These nice folks have developed a software package that helps you to create an inventory of your possessions prior to such a tragedy. This program is easy to use and its intuitive interface helps you organize your inventory by room and category. You can add multiple pictures of your possessions, room by room as you go along. You can also add replacement values. And when you're done, you can save your possessions file and print a hard copy report to store in a safe location off site.

This inventory can be a financial lifesaver in a time of disaster. - and it's yours for the asking!

Think you have a pretty jazzy password? Like maybe your mother's first name (nobody would guess that ;-). These people have come up with a formula (using 10,000,000 - the approximate number of passwords a regular computer might be able to test every second). They claim that with this they can calculate how long it would take to discover your password.

For example "grace" would take a hacker 38 seconds to crack. But add upper case and her birth year (Grace1934) and it would take the bad guys 42 years to break through.

Add a pound sign before and after (#Grace1934#) and the villains would get pretty grey while waiting the Million years it would take their computers to figure that one out!

Maybe their math is a bit fuzzy but the obvious moral of the story is to drive the villains coo coo with long and crazy passwords!
