  • SpinRite v6.1 Release #3
    The 3rd release of SpinRite v6.1 is published and may be obtained by all SpinRite v6.0 owners at the SpinRite v6.1 Pre-Release page. (SpinRite will shortly be officially updated to v6.1 so this page will be renamed.) The primary new feature, and the reason for this release, was the discovery of memory problems in some systems that were affecting SpinRite's operation. So SpinRite now incorporates a built-in test of the system's memory. For the full story, please see this page in the "Pre-Release Announcements & Feedback" forum.

  • BootAble – FreeDOS boot testing freeware

    To obtain direct, low-level access to a system's mass storage drives, SpinRite runs under a GRC-customized version of FreeDOS which has been modified to add compatibility with all file systems. In order to run SpinRite it must first be possible to boot FreeDOS.

    GRC's “BootAble” freeware allows anyone to easily create BIOS-bootable media in order to workout and confirm the details of getting a machine to boot FreeDOS through a BIOS. Once the means of doing that has been determined, the media created by SpinRite can be booted and run in the same way.

    The participants here, who have taken the time to share their knowledge and experience, their successes and some frustrations with booting their computers into FreeDOS, have created a valuable knowledgebase which will benefit everyone who follows.

    You may click on the image to the right to obtain your own copy of BootAble. Then use the knowledge and experience documented here to boot your computer(s) into FreeDOS. And please do not hesitate to ask questions – nowhere else can better answers be found.

    (You may permanently close this reminder with the 'X' in the upper right.)

As a new year's resolution, I finally got my own domain for sites that ask for an email. Had been using duck2go, but want something I know won't stop working.

Also found a nice utility for firefox, but it is a little out of date. Does anyone know of a more current extension that might be compatible with most browsers (safari, chrome, firefox)

He did a nice one by allowing for either + addresses or a hash for a domain
What kind of utility? What does it do?

In case the link is removed (thought I had added it before) the name is mail hash

It allows you to create an email address based on a domain. I'm using subdomains, so I can let others use this system. Only need a unique userid for each user.

Can also use + addresses, so you have You could use a regular email like, but I'm trying to create untraceable emails, so they can't link my different uses (unless for the

You could use something like lol as long as you can register that domain, or someone lets you create a subdomain

seems that with the changes going on (sn 965), this idea has more validity. Since it is a private domain, it won't be targeted like duck duck go will or some of the other mail forwarders or temporary accounts
