Simple Way to Relay or Pass POST Data From A Page to Another Without .htaccess, Even Cross-Domain

WRT54G2 Wireless-G Broadband Router Review

My old Linksys WRT54G finally gave out after 3 years, and I went to purchase another Linksys router, since I had no problems with its old one. The new Linksys product range meant that I couldn’t get the WRT54G anymore, but there was the sleek black WRT54G2 Wireless-G Broadband Router instead.

Joy! Skype is finally on the iPhone — but if you’re thinking of using Skype on a 3G or data plan, then you’re outta luck, UNLESS…you’re using the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS 3g Unrestrictor.

The thing with macros in Excel 2003 was that it was relatively easy to accomplish, but it’s a whole different ballgame in Excel 2007.

How to Save Time by Watching More TV Shows in a Day

The title’s not wrong, but this post might not be what you thought it was about. It’s not about saving time in general, it’s about saving time by squeezing more TV shows or movies into the same time period. So I was pretty amazed when I saw people multi-task by having a TV show playing on their computers while they worked on a document or something, but I recently discovered something even more incredible. I realised that well, you can
