Check If It Is Raining In A Particular City

I came late this morning because it was raining heavily outside. I wonder if it's the same on the other cities in the country. Maybe it was coincident when I stumbled upon this pretty cool website which can tell you whether it is raining in a particular city or not. To use isitraining.in, just add the city name after the website's URL (e.g. isitraining.in/Manila)

If your not satisfied with the default sticky notes software of windows then I suggest keep on reading. I've been on search for an alternative sticky notes ever since I started using Windows 7. The default sticky notes feature of Windows is just not enough for me. Lucky me and probably luck you because I found a great alternative that is much more useful sticky notes application, the iQ-Notes. It is a feature-rich sticky note application for windows. One favorite feature of mine is the ability to set an alarm on the note so it pops up at a certain date and time.

By default, Windows determines the speed it will use when copying files. This is not bad at all unless your using your computer for other heavy processing such as playing games or watching movies. Copying large files may peak up resources specially disk read and write operation. This is where UltraCopier comes handy because it allows you to replace the Windows default copy/move operation. Aside from adjusting the speed, it can also pause and resume the copy/move operation at will. It has a detailed debug logging so you can find out what went wrong in case of any failures.

Partially Hide The Taskbar In Windows 7

Since I upgraded to Windows 7, one feature I'm missing from Windows XP is the ability to minimize the taskbar. In Windows 7, the taskbar is always there, you can't just drag it down to free up some space on the desktop. Lucky ShellWin can do just that for us. ShellWin partially hide the Taskbar except the Start Button allowing you to keep the Start-button visible while running applications at full screen.
