My tool of the week - Play Speed in Windows Media Player
Ok - I don't really have a "tool of the week" post, nor is Play Speed really a tool in its own right - but I am sure pleased it exists.
I set myself a task of watching a number of Webcasts this afternoon - then Dynorod turned up to unblock the drains. An hour later and the drains nearly work - but I was crunched for time to get through the Webcasts. The solution - watch all the Webcasts at 1.5 x speed or above. Worked great!
