Its been a while since I posted, and since then I found out a wonderful application. Its called Portable Apps. You install it to your usb flash drive and whatever computer you go to you have access to your favorite apps. Well maybe not all your favorite apps, but the ones available on the portable apps website, here is the link to apps available. I went ahead and installed firefox, vlc, 7-zip, pidgin,notepad++, and putty. Some of the applications are open source, while others are freeware if it makes a difference to you, of course they will all be virus/spyware free. So if its something you find useful, I suggest you download it and check it out. http://portableapps.com/

Facebook Instant Messanger

Now that facebook has Chat on there website, everyone has to log onto facebook to see who there friends are. Well if you want facebook chat on the desktop currently its not possiable without this pidgin plugin –  But of course you have to install pidgin first.

After using the plugin it seems to work most of the time, I had a few issue where it would crash Pidgin, and if you saved your password, and opened pidgin up again, you would get stuck into a open/crash loop. But now since I make it so I have to enter my password everytime, it seems to work fine, as long as facebook chat isnt down.
