So Much Stuff I Can't Recall

Were You Aware of It? Remote PC

Was going to title this post “Reach Out and Touch John Hodgman,” but something like that might send the entirely wrong people to my blog. Instead I nicked the title from a recurring feature in Hodgman’s Areas of My Expertise. And now you are aware of at least that much.

Remote PC is a utility/service that allows you Remote Access to your Windows XP/2000/Server 2003 SP4-running computer from a remote location (Vista and Mac, no luck; Windows ME users, pffft, sorry).

Why might you need this? Say you’re traveling and realize the night before the big presentation you’ve forgotten an important file/e-mail back at the office. Or, possibly more likely around here, you’re traveling and the kid’s wigging out and whatever it is the child wants exists only on your desktop back home. Connect to your office/home PC via laptop or other computer and--Voila!--problem solved.

A 30-day free trial is available as are several service plans (beginning at $4.95/month), depending on your needs.
