The Web was designed as an information space, with the goal that it should be useful not only for human-human communication, but also that machines would be able to participate and help. One of the major obstacles to this has been the fact that most information on the Web is designed for human consumption, and even if it was derived from a database with well defined meanings (in at least some terms) for its columns, that the structure of the data is not evident to a robot browsing the web. Leaving aside the artificial intelligence problem of training machines to behave like people, the Semantic Web approach instead develops languages for expressing information in a machine processable form. This document gives a road map - a sequence for the incremental introduction of technology to take us, step by step, from the Web of today to a Web in which machine reasoning will be ubiquitous and devastatingly powerful......(free).....

Simple Static IP is a free program by PcWinTech.com to help users set their IP address to static with just a few clicks. At times there may be a reason you need to have your IP address set to static.

Normally applications should register themselves for all protocols they understand. This works great for http:, https: (webbrowsers) and mailto: (MUAs).

E.g., the makers of PuTTY refuse to register PuTTY as ssh: handler because there is no proper standard for ssh: URLs, yet. If you're like me and can't wait for that standard to be set in stone, then you could simply assume ssh: links will look a lot like telnet: links and use UrlConf to register PuTTY as ssh: protocol handler. UrlConf is a program to configure URL protocol handlers.

SmartCallMonitor is the new phone monitoring software for TAPI capable hardware like a telephone system or an ISDN card. It automatically tries to match incoming phone calls with data stored in your Microsoft Outlook contacts to provide you with information about the caller (e.g. name, address etc.). The information will be shown in a clearly arranged datasheet. If SmartCallMonitor cannot find matching information about the caller in your MS Outlook contacts, it can use an internet reverse search service to obtain information about the caller. With just one click, you can start a Google search directly from the monitoring software to look for further information about a call (e.g. the company's website). The detailed view shows you all information about the selected entry at a glance. With SmartCallMonitor you always know who is calling. In the integrated journal, you can filter missed calls or specifically search for a contact or a number in the call log. SmartCallMonitor can simplify your daily office routine by monitoring incoming calls, saving information about the caller (e.g. time and date of each call), creating call back reminders and many other features. SmartCallMonitor V1.2 fully functional version is completely free

Explore some of the most useful Firefox settings that you can change on your own and that aren't normally available through the program's graphical interface. The closest analogy to how Firefox manages its internal settings is the Windows Registry. Each setting, or preference, is given a name and stored as a string (text), integer (number) or Boolean (true/false) value. However, Firefox doesn't keep its settings in the registry, but in a file called prefs.js. You can edit prefs.js directly, but it's often easier to change the settings through the browser window. Type about:config in the address bar and press Enter, and you'll see all the settings currently enumerated in prefs.js, listed in alphabetical order. To narrow down the hundreds of configuration preferences to just the few you need, type a search term into the Filter: bar. (Click the Show All button or just clear the Filter: bar to get the full list back again.)

Those of you who torrent will have come across sites such as torrentz.com (which is the site this addon is hardcoded to work with for the moment) which index torrents by hash, and link to other sites. Unfortunately, this doesn't always mean you can get the torrent, as sometimes the torrent in question has been removed from other sites, or no other sites are listed. Luckily, sites such as torrentz.com use the torrent hash as part of the URL. Using this, we can create a magnet link, and get firefox to pass this off to its default application, which should be your primary torrent client. This will in turn use uTP or some similar protocol to retrieve the torrent file from DHT or the trackers you specify in the options (it comes with two as default), and then let you use the newly acquired torrent to download whatever you wanted to begin with. Thanks Lifehacker

Keeping track of where you've been does not end with simply clearing out your browsing history and other private data—your operating system continues to store more information about what you've been up to, like cached DNS lookups and worse, Flash cookies that don't get wiped.

On your own PC, however, here is how to boost your browsing privacy

What is Port Triggering Initiator? When you use port triggering on your router a connection attempt must be made from your computer to an address on the trigger port. When you router detects the connection attempt your router then turns on the ports, thus you have port triggering, a on/off switch for port forwarding. Well the problem comes if you are using port trigging for a program that doesn't make a connection attempt, such as say a ftp server or hosting a game. If a connection is never detected the router never enables the ports. Well that's what Port Triggering Initiator is designed for. You enter the triggering port to make a connection on and give it a address outside your network. Any address will do even if the connection fails its the attempt that triggers the port
Simple internet tools is a dozen simple yet helpful tools for both the common user and admins.
Simple Static IP is a free program .to help users set their IP address to static with just a few clicks. At times there may be a reason you need to have your IP address set to static. A static IP is an IP address that never changes. By default peoples IP is dynamic which means it can change at any time. When port forwarding you forward to your local IP address, and if your IP changes your port forwarding will no longer work as it is not pointing to your new IP. This is the same for nearly all settings in a router that points to your computer, such as DMZ and logging. So to keep that from happening you need to set your IP to static so it never changes, then you no longer have to worry about your IP changing. (This should be done for computers behind a router) The process to set your IP can be intimidating if you have never done it before, that's why we provide this program to you, to make it simple

A PURL is a Persistent Uniform Resource Locator. Functionally, a PURL is a URL. However, instead of pointing directly to the location of an Internet resource, a PURL points to an intermediate resolution service. The PURL resolution service associates the PURL with the actual URL and returns that URL to the client. The client can then complete the URL transaction in the normal fashion. In Web parlance, this is a standard HTTP redirect
Liquid Location is a dynamic DNS service that focuses on simplicity in design, security and ease of updates. Just about any program that can be written to request a URL can be used to update your IP address making Liquid Location truely cross platform. Unlike other services that require you to send your password across a network or use some clunky IP address updating software, LL automatically detects your connecting IP address remotely and doesn't use passwords for updates. Upon IP address update, you can be notified via email or text message. Although any program can be used to update your IP address, we suggest using Wget with Task Scheduler or Cron in order to perform updates. In this way, there is no program running as a service on your computer and Wget should only use about 1 second of CPU time every hour
Live Labs Web Sandbox technology preview, a solution for securing web content through isolation.

With SolarWinds free Wake-On-LAN, powering up a remote PC is no longer an issue. When the remote network adapter hears a Magic Packet created for its unique MAC address, the network adapter alerts the computer to power up. If Wake-On-LAN is enabled in the computer's BIOS settings, then the system will start up just as if the power button has been pressed. When a device is shut down, its network interface card is still receiving power and keeps listening on the network for a magic packet to arrive – enabling Wake-On-LAN to do its magic! Go to Downloads

When you access the Internet with your web browser, a lot of things happen that are hidden to you. The browser and the website exchange "headers" that define the behaviour of the browser's cache system, create or use cookies, tell the website who you are and where you came from, and so on. Moreover, the page's html code contains hidden tags or javascript programs that control the browser's behaviour, such as "mouse-over" animation, page layering, URL masking or pop-up messages. And last but not least, the page often contains ads and banners that pollute the screen and slow down your web experience. Proximodo acts as a mediator between the browser and the website. It "sees" everything that is going on and, according to your choices, modifies headers and html page content on-the-fly to make things right. You don't want pop-ups and banners? Just activate the corresponding filters and they will disappear. You want cookies to be deleted when you close your browser? Proximodo will do it for you. You want a fast navigation in the pages you already visited? Page caching will be forced. Basically, Proximodo is a clone of a great piece of software called The Proxomitron, developed by Scott R. Lemmon. Now that for sad reasons Proxomitron is unmaintained, I started this project to carry on the idea. Though a few Proxomitron features are still missing in Proximodo (mainly SSL support) the essential is already there: 100% of Proxomitron filters will run under Proximodo (plus there is a menu to import your custom Proxomitron filters). Proximodo currently comes with default Proxomitron filters, which can do quite a lot of different things. But you can write your own filters, using a powerful syntax that, despite its seeming complexity, is quite easy to use and master.

Internet Explorer Favorites without FavIcons. Here's where FavIconizer comes to the rescue
Proxomitron lets you view the web the way YOU want. Getting rid of many common annoyances is as simple as clicking on one of the filtering rules included with the program, but best of all, the Proxomitron's rules aren't "hard-coded". You can look at them, modify them, even write entirely new ones! If you know some HTML, you'll find the Proxomitron allows you to personally customize just about any web page you view. You'll no longer be at some web-master's tender mercy. Even if you know no HTML, you'll find the included rules give you far more control than you've ever had before, and my hopes are that other Proxomitron user will contribute useful rules they've written for the benefit of everyone. Besides filtering web pages, The Proxomitron also allows you to control the normally hidden HTTP header messages that pass between your browser and the outside world. Many people are unaware that this covert conversation is even taking place, yet it can reveal all sorts of information. See exactly what your web browser has to say, then have it tell the world only what you want! Even those notorious "cookies" can be deleted or modified if you wish. Proxomitron: a free, highly flexible, user-configurable, small but very powerful, local HTTP web-filtering proxy

We believe this is a more accurate representation of your true speed. Most Internet consumers don't think about the Internet service providers responsibility in peering beyond their own network.
