Simple chatrooms online, using text, audio, video or all!

Wed design Glasgow Owner of Contact MultimediaI came across this site during one of my research of new things on the internet and whilst this is not a new idea, it’s certainly got more of a Web 2.0 feel to it from most of the others I’ve used in the past.

What’s really good about this as well is how easy it is to use, honestly if you have a twitter or Facebook account login, choose a room name, invite people to it and blam! you’re good  to go – couldn’t be easier! You can even share your desktop with people, so it’s like having a free webinar program at your finger tips and will cost nothing!

Here’s the link http://tinychat.com

I’m going to try to schedule a chatroom session once every 1,2 or 4 weeks and give out web design advice, so basically a Q & A session, what could you do with it?

Before I do however I would like to guage how popular this would be so please leave a comment for me on this blog post, cheers.

Free Target Traffic directed from your own niche

Wed design Glasgow Owner of Contact MultimediaOk the jury is still out on this one as I’m still testing it, but I figured that if more of us tested it then we might all be able to tell each other what seems to work well or not, are you up for it?

No – ok thanks for reading you can now take the blue pill and go about your day as normal.

Yes – ok reach for that glass of water, swallow and get ready.

Download this file and have a read at it then go to one of the links in it.

I’m not going to lie I didn’t write it (some good info though) and there is a sort of affilite link scheme going on with it, but as you will see with a free account it’s not really a big deal and the potential to get lot’s of targetted traffic I think is worth trying out at least.

If you do sign up please keep in touch as I would like to compare notes and hope that if this does work we can all benefit from each other.

Why is there no space on my hard drive???

Wed design Glasgow Owner of Contact MultimediaI’m sure you’ve come across this scenario at least once.

Either you’re trying to install a new program or copy some files, but the system hits you with that lovely ERROR noise or if you’re lucky at the very least a little box saying insufficient space available.

So you think to yourself if only I didn’t have to go through all my folders and try to find out where the space is being taken up, because it’s going to take ages to do that. If only there was a program I could use to find out the folder sizes and files at an easy glance. At least then I can go to the biggest potential trouble spots quickly.

This is something all operating should have a better version of in my opinion. Anyway we don’t need to depend on them as other people out there know that this needs a better solution and thankfully have delivered.

For now the solutions below are for Windows only machines, I will do some research to see if there are Apple Mac versions (if you know of any please get in touch), I don’t think the Linux community need my help on this subject ;-)

This is a fairly comprehensive one and the is the software I’m using on my desktop right now.It’s got a really nice way of visualising the folders and files once it’s done it’s scan. it even colour codes types of files for you that you can click an it highlights then in the box below – Genius!

Cost: Nada, nothing it’s completely FREE!

This one isn’t as detailed as the one above but it does have the advantage of being portable, which means it doesn’t need to be installed. So you can stick on an external hard hdrive or Thumb Drive and run it on any windows computer.

Cost: Again Nada, nothing it’s completely FREE!

I hope that this is useful to you.
