Don't worry if your computer can't play dvd's from other regions. Forget the hacks in the past, just use VLC media player. If your tired of Microsoft Media Player not having the ability to play your media because of missing codecs then VLC media player is for you.
VLC will also play .flv files of all those YouTube videos you downloaded. Extremely helpful media player for presenting media on the job or viewing dvd's or media files away from your homeland.

Autodesk's Project Draw is a free online flow chart and diagram creator. Very easy and simple to use and of course it is free. You can save and export your work into jpeg, png, pdf, svg etc. If you want a simple tool to create simple electronic schematics, flow charts, and diagrams Project Draw is the tool. Another similar web app is gliffy. Gliffy is another alternative to Microsoft Visio. I like gliffy's ability to easily share and collaborate your work online but the basic free mode only allows you to save just a few projects on their server.

Many of us can not access Gmail on a work computer but don't let that stop you from receiving your messages. You can set up your Gmail account to forward copies of incoming emails to any email address. It's as simple as logging on to your Gmail account, select "settings", select "forwarding and POP/IMAP", and then type in the email address you want messages forwarded to. Now messages to your Gmail address are auto-forwarded to your work email.
