Freeware Download: NetStat Live

Here’s a great download for all you monitor freaks. If you’re the type that must have meters for everything trackable, NetStat Live is just for you.

Sure beats the default task manager stats you have built into Windows. NetStat Live is a small, easy to use TCP/IP protocol monitor which can be used to see your exact throughput on both incoming and outgoing data, whether you’re using a modem, cable modem, DSL, or even local network.

I love this app as it has a very small footprint and will not bogg down your computer.

Vista is unusable

Finally, I’ve downgraded to XP from the preinstalled Vista on my notebook. Usability is crap as most of the softwares I use are not compatible with Vista. Plus it takes up resources the size of an elephant dung.

Are you using Vista yourself? How is it treating you? Tell me about it!

2 Vistas

Yes I’m currently using 2 Vistas … one of which is good and the other one sucks so much I’m thinking of downgrading.

Garmin VistaThe one I love is my Garmin eTrex Vista GPS receiver. This vista was indispensable during my Europe trip last year. I’ll be so lost without it.

Of lately, I’ve been using a lot of it’s built in electronic compass. It accurately shows me where I’m heading and more importantly where a particular house door is facing. You see, I’ve been house hunting for myself and my uncle.

Another feature I used is the barometric altimeter. Since I’ve been checking out houses near the beach … you need to have a home with at least 15meters elevation above sea level … just to be safe.

This Vista is always with me when I’m deep in the jungle … just in case I don’t wanna wait for the stars to tell which way is north.
