LogMeIn

For anyone out there who wants to remotely access computers (either to access your home computer via your laptop or to help friends and family members with their computer problems), LogMeIn (http://www.logmein.com) is far and away the best program to use.

The free version allows you add an unlimited number of systems that you can remotely access, with several tools, including a laser pointer, whiteboard (this one is especially fun for freaking out my sister by taking over her computer and writing "redrum" across the screen), magnifier, and several other features. This isn't a free trial -- it's just plain free.

I am able to access every system in my parent's house (one wired, one wireless, and one desktop with some sort of weird wireless adapter) without a hitch, and the best part is that you don't even need to install any software on the controller machine -- just go to the website, log in, go to "my computers", pick which computer you want to control, and bam: you're in.

I'm only posting this because I have been searching for over a year for a program like this and I wanted to save you all the trouble.

Siftquisition #2: CaptainPlanet420

As soon as he's back, he continues his hateful speech, and then blatantly abuses his privileges by invoking *discuss on the Shimabukuro sift 3 times in a 24-hour period:

He clearly is never going to stop purposefully hurting the sift, and I think a permaban is in order.

Richard Dawkins' 7 Categories

1. Strong theist. 100% probability of the existence of God. In the words of C.G. Jung, "I do not believe, I know."

2. Very high probability but short of 100%. De facto theist. "I cannot know for certain, but I strongly believe in God and live my life on the assumption that he is there."

3. Higher than 50% but not very high. Technically agnostic but leaning towards theism. "I am very uncertain, but I am inclined to believe in God."

4. Exactly 50%. Completely impartial agnostic. "God's existence and non-existence are exactly equi-probable."

5. Lower than 50% but not very low. Technically agnostic but leaning towards atheism. "I don't know whether God exists but I'm inclined to be skeptical."

6. Very low probability, but short of zero. De facto atheist. "I cannot know for certain but I think God is very improbable, and I live my life on the assumption that he is not there."

7. Strong atheist. "I know there is no God, with the same conviction as Jung "knows" there is one."

Of course there are not 7 hard categories but a continuum. For simplicity's sake, which one most closely describes your views?
