Volery, the single installer for popular application, is now Ninite and open to all

Recently, an online service called Volery received quite a rave among tech websites (no, we didn’t cover it). Volery allowed users to download a single installer that installs the most popular applications on their PC at one go. The installer is totally customizable – you can choose the applications you want to include in the installer. Volery was in private beta at that time.

Today Volery has opened it’s door to everyone, and curiously changed their name to Ninite. I thought brands changed names to revive a dying product or better represent an upgraded product. Volery or Ninite is neither. Whatever.

Ninite doesn’t need an account to use. Simply check the boxes against the applications you want to include and click on the “Get Installer” button. Applications available at Ninite include web browsers, messaging programs, media players, office applications including the trial version of Microsoft Office 2007, antivirus software, runtime files and so on. On last count there were 58 installers in total.

Ninite is free, but premium accounts are on the works which will offer features like local download caching, network share download caching, and a silent mode. These advanced features are currently enabled on free Ninite installers, but once the premium accounts are launched users will have to upgrade to continue using them.

  1. They don't support installing to anywhere but the default locations. Worthless.

Whenever the computer is lagging or some application is taking too long to respond, we usually fire up task manager and look under the Performance tab or under Processes to check on processor utilization or the amount of free memory available. The task manager is ideal for real-time analysis of CPU and memory utilization. It even displays a short history of CPU utilization in the form of a graph. You get a small time-window, about 30 seconds or so, depending on how large the viewing area is.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
