Visualize the storage consumption of the folders

Remember when you were sure your computer had all the hard drive space you'd ever need? Gigabytes sell for less than a buck a pop nowadays, but with video, music, photos and web clippings hogging up hard drives more and more each day, that "Low Disk Space" message may come a lot sooner than you ever expected. Where did all those gigabytes go?

If you need to free up space on your hard drive fast, your best bet is to start wiping out the big space-eaters right away. But don't waste time guessing who they are; there are easy ways to inventory what's clogging your hard drive. Free tools for Windows, Mac and Linux map your hard drive usage so you can get a birds-eye view of what's taking up most of your coveted hard drive space.

Here are some of the tools I have used.

FosiX A lot of features and appealing visuals but 30 days trials(Download)

JDiskReport (Download)

multi-platform freeware JDiskReport also provides graphical disk usage statistics using more common pie/line/bar charts.Since JDiskReport is Java-based (hence the J), you'll have to download and install Java in order to run it.

WinDirStat (Download)

The free, open-source utility WinDirStat displays your disk usage in a color-coded map that shows what file types and folders take up the most space on your hard drive.

Yahoo Pipes

http://pipes.yahoo.com

A powerful composition tool to aggregate, manipulate, and mashup content from around the web.

One of the  most usefulness of this tool was realized when I could aggregate all the photo together taken by different friends in different cameras and uploaded separately in their Picasa or flicker web albums

I just took the RSS feed of different sources and used a simple UNION operator using yahoo pipes and Bingo ! All the pictures of the event are now together and can be distributed as a single stream.

Solar Eclipse Live from China

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="480" caption="Solar Eclipse Live from China "]Solar Eclipse Live from China [/caption]

Thousands are expected to coverge in the Gobi desert in far-off western China Friday's total eclipse of the sun with an 80% chance of clear skies for the solar event. Yet for millions of remote viewers the solar eclipse may be seen LIVE on the WEB beginning at 6:00 AM EST Friday.

The solar eclipse will begin with the shadow of the orbiting moon slowly moving over the sun's face until it obscures the bright solar disk completely for about 2 1/2 minutes before the shadow recedes. Totality will occur at 7:09 AM EST.

Video of the 2006 solar eclipse from Turkey may be viewed HERE. The next total solar eclipse to occur in Northern America is 2017.
