access linux partitions fron windows

“provides Windows NT4.0/2000/XP/2003 with full access to Linux Ext2 volumes (read access and write access). This may be useful if you have installed both Windows and Linux as a dual boot environment on your computer.
It installs a pure kernel mode file system driver Ext2fs.sys,
which actually extends the Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 operating system to
include the Ext2 file system. Since it is executed on the same software
layer at the Windows NT operating system core like all of the native
file system drivers of Windows (for instance NTFS, FASTFAT, or CDFS for
Joliet/ISO CD-ROMs), all applications can access directly to
Ext2 volumes. Ext2 volumes get drive letters (for instance G:). Files,
and directories of an Ext2 volume appear in file dialogs of all
applications. There is no need to copy files from or to Ext2 volumes in
order to work with them” [Via :].

Windows Media Player 11 finale is out

WMP 11 can be downloaded and is the best to date.This release seems to take less memory, and runs at 10-14MB while playing, which is a bit better than the beta. Not bad.

IE 7 vulnerability discovered

According to security firm Secunia, the just-released Internet Explorer 7 contains a “Redirection Information Disclosure” vulnerability,
which allows one site to fetch data from another site through the
browser, which opens it up to all kinds of cross-site scripting (XSS)
attacks. Interestingly, the same vulnerability has been known and unpatched in IE6
since April. It’s one thing not to patch an old browser, but seems
quite another to release a brand new browser with the same
vulnerability that you’ve been aware of for six months

Internet Explorer 7 is Out

Microsoft has a lot riding on this one. Bill Gates has promised a
revamp of the market leading browser, and everyone is expecting
something big from IE since it has been so long since the last release.
Browsers like Firefox are gaining ground, and IE7
better prove something to users, or it could face a steady decline as
it has in the past few years. So needless to say, the browser wars are
back on. IE7 is out, and Firefox is just waiting to pounce on the new
Microsoft browser in the next few days with Firefox 2 (In both Mac and PC formats).
but the thing is i dont like this message that much, im litlle chickeny still maybe ill install it latter….

Explorer Breadcrumbs

If you have tried Microsoft Vista you may have used the new Breadcrumbs tool bar and liked it, so much so that you want to have it on your existing XP box. Then you will love Explorer Breadcrumbs by minimilistic.

Rather than navigating step-by-step through your folder hierarchy — view your folders
quickly and go directly to any location with a single click.

Explorer Breadcrumbs is an add-in for Windows Explorer which contains a contextual
series of buttons that allows you to quickly see and
navigate through the entire folder hierarchy without leaving the current window.
