TFTP server and client

For all you Network Engineers out there, here are 2 great TFTP tools:

1. Tftpd32 is a great TFTP server and client that also includes a DHCP, SNTP and Syslog server. If you still need more convincing to download, Ttfpd32 is Cisco's recommended TFTP utility.

2. PumpKIN is another excellent TFTP server and client. PumpKIN is one of Packet Magazine's "Top 5 Freeware Tools for Cisco Network Administrators"

(If you would like to know the other 4 Freeware Tools, send me a comment and I will post them)

Sirius Radio to merge with XM

It has finally happened! Sirius and XM will merge in a stock-for-stock deal. Satellite Radio is already one of those "can't go back" technologies, along with broadband Internet and HDTV, so I can't wait to see how much better (hopefully) Satellite Radio will become with this merger. Tune in next time!

Top 5 Tech Magazines

Here are my favorite tech magazines, listed alphabetically:

Computer Shopper - Loads and loads of excellent reviews.
Mac|Life (formerly MacAddict) - The perfect Mac accessory.
Macworld - Great reviews and a must-have (along with Mac|Life) for any Mac owner.
Maximum PC - Best PC magazine you will find.
PC World - All-around great tech magazine.

1Password - RoboForm for Mac

RoboForm for Mac. It doesn't exist. But, who needs it when you have 1Password. When I switched to the Mac, like you, I searched for a Mac version of RoboForm, but Siber does not make one. Thankfully, Agile Web Solutions has given the world the perfect solution in 1Password. Upon purchasing this wonderful program, I was immediately able to import all of my RoboForm passcards and I was form-filling on my Mac in minutes! A beautiful thing.

The creators of 1Passwd have put together a lot of great documentation for their product, including a movie illustrating 1Passwd's many features and uses. Whether or not you are new to the Mac, 1Passwd is a must-have application.
