This is one of the coolest applications I've met in a long time. It's a single executable. Download it, double-click it, assign yourself a username/password, click 'start server.' Then from any modern browser in the world, you can go to the correct IP address and view the desktop, mouse control included. Add a phone call and this is the easiest way to do remote tech support. This kind of software has been around for years, but now it RUNS IN YOUR BROWSER as easy as pi.

While the engineers were designing this protocol, they decided to throw in a few more “special purpose” tone groups. You don’t normally see these extra four buttons on telephones, but they are alive and being employed for communications signaling.

More than just an intrusive molecule that foils communication, HIF-1 normally switches on when the body is deprived of oxygen. Otherwise, it remains silent.

Actually, not funny. Likely quite serious, you gotta give a little creative license to people who've obviously been through a lot.
