Beta, Microsoft, Remote Support
So, I do not know about you allI can say that since I know something about computers I get hit up for free computer help from family all the time. I do not really mind this but it is sometimes hard to get to them in a timely manner. Well I stumbled upon Microsft Live Mesh the other day and it is pretty cool. Here is a link so you can check it out.
This gives you 5GB of space on a virtual desktop so that you can synch and share files between computers, and it will let you remote a computer while letting the people on the other end watch, or you can hide it from them. I have used this a couple times and I like it. It is still in Beta so take it with a grain of salt. I hope that it gets better but I really love the Idea. Before I found this I was tempted to sign up for another pay service to do remoting. All you need for this is a Windows Live ID.
Let me know what you think about it.
