Updating files on the server

I had never thought it's possible to drag and drop files from your local computer to the web server. I think it's supported only on Windows 2000. Goto the site
It will ask for the password. Once you have typed the password you can simply browse your server and drag and drop the files from your local computer to the web server.

Chatting Made productive

Boldchat is the best service that allows you to chat with your customers while they visit your website. The price is just right! Free for basic features and 5 to 40 dollars per month per seat for the features like, History Emails or Standard Messages. The service has the potential to become a right tool for corporate messaging needs. I just had a chat session with Kent Johnson, who runs his company Bravestorm, LLC from Wichita, Kansas, USA. He informed me that the service was started in February 03 and in just 8 months he has managed to earn 11000 accounts. Pretty impressive! I will watch the service and the man behind it as well!

Simple RSS reader and Active Desktop

I have recently written a PHP script to read your favorite RSS Feeds in your browser. You can use this cookie based feed reader that "remembers" your RSS feeds and display the contents everytime you visit this page.

Make the above mentioned page as your Home page. You can use the Active Desktop to make your desktop act like your own personal Web page. You can display pieces of your favorite RSS feeds directly on your desktop and keep them up-to-date automatically.
To enable the Active Desktop, right-click an empty area on the desktop, Select Properties and choose Web tab. Make sure "Show web content on my active desktop". You may select "My Current Home Page" as your desktop if you have made the above RSS feed reader page as your home page. To disable the Active Desktop, deselect "Show Web content".
