Weather Forecasting Tool for Windows 7- Forecaster

Forecaster is a simple weather forecasting tool that provides weather information right from your Windows 7 system tray. Of course, Windows 7 has its own weather gadget, but Forecaster can display weather information of different locations of the world or region just with a click.

Forecaster is a portable software, and it uses Google service to provide exact weather forecasts. Also, you can add as many locations as you wish. To cycle through the locations, simply click on the square dots at the bottom of the dialog. The first one will always be the local weather.

Moreover, the option “Notify me when the current conditions change” notify you when there is a change in weather condition.

However, this tool misses some features. For example, there is no option to change temperature scale (fahrenheit/celsius) and has no option to get additional information from the internet.

Note: This application requires .Net framework 4.0 to work. It can be downloaded free at source here.

PaperBus-free & fast web proxy solution for anonymous internet surfing

There are several free proxy solutions available for downloading ( we had covered few of them in the previous posts ), but from my personal experience most of them are very slow in my country. If you are looking for a free, fast and reliable proxy solution for anonymous surfing, Here is a new multi-platform application, PaperBus (ad-supported) which lets you surf anonymously and bypass internet filters. Paper bus (brought you by Open Terrace Ltd the same company that made commercial proxy service Freedur) is very easy to use. Simply install, and run. No registration required. The only down side is there will be an ad web browser tab popping up in every twenty minutes while you are using it. Another interesting feature of PaperBus is that you can create a list of websites you don't want to surf through PaperBus. PaperBus is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux systems. Download appropriate version from here. ( via )
