Perhaps you want to access your Windows desktop from your tablet to watch a movie in bed? It’s easier than ever to get remote access to your machine, with many free tools available. Let me introduce you to seven of the best. 1. TeamViewer is perhaps the most well-known of all the third-party tools available. It doesn’t just specialize in screen-sharing and remote-access. By default, you need to enter a PIN code to connect to someone else’s machine. Unlike some of its competitors, the software also allows group sessions. Best for: All-around screen-sharing and remote-access. 2. Chrome Remote Desktop has one glaring drawback – both computers need to have the Chrome browser installed.

MindMup: Zero-friction online mind mapping Men's Journal Magazine - Men's Style, Travel, Fitness and Gear I hate the gym. At least, I hate "the gym" as imagined by the modern American health club: the mindless repetitions on the weight machines, halfhearted crunches, daytime TV during the treadmill. Such a sad, unimaginative excuse for a life, when I could be out rock-climbing, surfing, or, hell, even just scrubbing the bathroom floor. But I love working out the way I've come to understand it, and two big discoveries made all the difference.

I continue to get photos at a regular rate, and as I post new ones, they continue to get noticed anew by places like Digg and Boing Boing. Initially, I was so stunned by the influx of photos that I posted just about anything that came my way. But as the emporium has grown, I’ve become choosier about which ones I post. 1. 2. 3. 4.
Intellectual Capital Part Three This is a Part Three of a collection of the columns I wrote for Intellectual Capital during the all too brief years that publication existed. Published by Pete DuPont (former Governor of Delaware), it was a splendid collection of ideas and thoughts. It was also a victim of the dot bust. These are presented more or less in the order they were written. The final as it appeared in Intellectual Capital was somewhat different: the editor, Bob Kolasky, managed to make them shorter, and, I hate to admit it, better. Not many editors can do that with my work. Part One Part Two Part Three January 1999 -- AL Gore and Science Policy January 1999 Jerry Pournelle Sunday afternoon (January 24) At the 1999 annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science Vice President Gore predictably came bearing gifts.
