My computer won't even boot up!
I faced an interesting problem this weekend. I refurbished an old computer that my wife wanted to use in her classroom to run educational software. I had a decision to make, either format and wipe the hard drive or try and clean it up manually. I chose to format and start over, forgetting that I should have made a "Windows 98" boot disk before I formated the computer.
The problem is simple I don't have any computers anywhere at home running "Window 98". So I Googled the problem and this site popped up.
I downloaded a program from the site and it created a boot disk for me. Problem solved!
Here are a few others that popped up but I didn't use them as my problem was solved.
Let's be careful formatting out there!

A long, long time ago, in a galaxy not so far away, Google was just two grad students at Stanford with a smart idea for search technology. Today's search whiz kid is Stephen Wolfram, one of the biggest brains on the planet - and he's got the new idea. Wolfram has developed a search engine that can actually understand your questions and try to figure out answers. It takes some doing to learn how to talk to Wolfram|Alpha, but it's well worth it.
Today's Wolfram|Alpha is the first step in an ambitious, long-term project to make all systematic knowledge immediately computable by anyone. Enter your question or calculation and Wolfram|Alpha uses its built-in algorithms and a growing collection of data to compute the answer. Based on a new kind of knowledge-based computing.
If the sci-fi writers are right and the Internet does gain a consciousness of its own someday, we'll all blame Wolfram. In the meantime, you can have a baby HAL of your own. To get started go to http://www.wolframalpha.com/ and click on "New to Wolfram|Alpha?" and experience the future for yourself.

If you have not heard of or tried Google Voice yet ... Get on board! It's awesome! You can only join by invitation ... so here's your invitation. Just go to http://www.google.com/voice and at the bottom where it says "Google Voice is currently available by invite only." Click on the "Request an invite" link. There is a waiting list, but it is well worth it!
Google Voice is available for users in the United States. It allows users to select a single U.S. phone number from just about any area code and create a real working number. Having a free phone number in any area code is just the tip of the iceberg - the number can be forwarded to one or more numbers to follow you and it has more features than I can list here. Calls can be made to display your Goggle number on caller I.D., you can set voice mail and call screening options ... the list goes on.
Of course you have to have a working number to use as a base - but you never have to give out your home number again - and you have all sorts of features. The bottom line is that you simply have to take a look at this new technology introduced by Google this year!
As with most things the Google giant is bringing to us ... this is not really new, but rather just coming to light for the rest of us. In 2005 Craig Walker and Vincent Paquet founded 'Grand Central' - a company that had some interesting uses for phone numbers and forwarding. They had many innovative ideas and centralized voice mail or call handling techniques but much of the world was not aware of their existence.
In 2007 a change began when GrandCentral was acquired by Google for $95 million. After purchasing GrandCentral, Google appeared to have abandoned the project and very little information about it was released. Then in March of 2009 management revealed that the team had been working on it throughout that period, apparently in secret, and that it was being rebranded "Google Voice". It was to keep most of the features originally offered in GrandCentral and add an impressive array of new features. Go see for yourself!
