    Also, I forgot in my previous comment, Windows and Mac both have “Remote Desktop Connection” which allows you to log in to a remote PC and see the desktop. The computer you want to connect to has to be on a network and then you can log in to it from a remote computer. I use this to access my work computer when I am home. There is also a paid product called GoToMyPC but not all network administrators allow that on their networks.

    Just wanted to respond to this episode of the podcast.

    I too love Pogoplug. They also have apps on Android and iOS so you can access your files basically anywhere, anytime.

    Sally mentioned about being able to have Windows 7 change wallpapers automatically and Mac OS X also has that capability. Also, there is a Windows program called Paperquote ’01 that automatically changes your desktop wallpaper and has a quote. They have a “Today’s Verse” channel that will give an NIV Bible verse with a very nice image. The link to download the program is here. http://www.heartlight.org/wallpaper/download.html

    Can’t wait for a WELS iOS app. I do use the Android app and enjoy it.
