Every day I’m amazed by the kinds of tools people create. Sometimes they’re small free projects, and other times, they’re just tools that solved a specific problem. Thankfully, like me, developers love giving them away for everyone to use. Today I stumbled across a cool whiteboard tool that lets you collaborate with others for free.
It can be quite discouraging. You go buy something only to find out later that you could have gotten that for free. When looking at technology, there are a number of truly inventive and clever ways you can get things without having to pay for them. This article has a Canadian slant, but most of these 10 things are universal.
This time around, I wanted to shed some light on the ever-growing number of tools out there that exist solely online. If you wanted to check into a domain or determine if your mail server is safe, these tools will help you do that.

This is going to be more of a beginning overview of how you might use these tools to identify and stop a rogue application on your computer
What every IT Guy tends to keep, however, is a cache of essential utilities that he/she use with them all the time. As you become more tuned to the kinds of utilities you use, you’ll find ways to make them more available to yourself when you are at the client (at a moments notice).

Today, I’m going to look at a small utility that acts simply as a Print Manager or a Print Previewer. This utility gives you the ability to print ONLY the pages you need or want to print and remove the ones you don’t need.
