Brosix connects to ICQ, Google Talk, MSN and Facebook networks , but cannot connect to Jabber and Yahoo. Has anyone experienced this connection problem with Jabber and Yahoo?

Last time I tried it, I was unable to redirect domains to 0.0.0.0 (an invalid IP, I know, but enabling much snappier redirection). Apart from that, it works well -- but there are other similar options.

webfork on 30 Nov 2014

Qualia LAN Messenger is a secure instant messaging and file transfer application for communication over a local network. It does not require a server or an internet connection. Also includes text formatting, event notifications, broadcast messages, chat rooms, themes, message logging, and more.

Great for a more secure alternative to regular Instant Messaging tools or for ease of communication/file sharing when the Internet isn't available.

Cross-platform supporting Mac and Linux.

Read "stuck print jobs" @ http://jesusnjim.com/using-computers/stuck-print-jobs.html

Batch file that does the same is available @ http://jesusnjim.com/using-computers/flushprinters.bat

Source, binaries and installer @ http://jesusnjim.com/code/printflush.html

Not bad!
The BAT file basically stops the spooling process, then deletes the contents (files) located in the system32\spool\printers directory
then starts the spool process again.
