For those who like to arrange and tweak images without the effort of learning Photoshop, cf/x Software’s image composition tool cf/x alpha just received a notable update. cf/x alpha 1.2 gains a new Arrange by Shape feature that creates a collage from user-specified images based on any user-definable shape. It also features four new collage generators that can turn hundreds of images into a heap, scatter them across the canvas, sweep them toward a corner, or assemble them in a grid—all of which are easy to envision but tedious to carry out manually. Other changes include support for irregularly sized and placed images in the Mosaic generator and various interface tweaks. ($229 new, free update, 91.8 MB)
Trust Local Addresses in VirusBarrier X6's Antivandal
VirusBarrier X6's Antivandal feature stops all kinds of network attacks, including port scans, ping floods and more. However, you may have some devices on your network that send out pings or other requests that may be interpreted as attacks. To prevent this, add them to the Trusted Addresses list so they won't be blocked. You can even add a range of addresses with wildcards, such as 192.168.1.*.
