As we trundle towards the final days of December, we draw ever closer to the observance of an annual tradition that many Maximum PC readers partake in whether they want to or not: traveling home to break bread with far-flung relatives, and being asked to fix their computer’s issues before they even have a chance to get their coat off. The good news is that you’ll be rewarded with a turkey dinner for your efforts! The bad news is that every single one of your relatives will hamper those efforts by offering ham-handed advice drawn from a wealth of whimsical non-computer related life experiences. While we can’t stop the pain of being surrounded by computer-breaking turkey-craving luddites, we can suggest a tool that’ll help you to get to that holiday feast just a little faster: It’s called
, and it’s our Cool Site of the Week.
By navigating to IPChicken.com, you’ll gain instant access to valuable information that’ll help you get away from your parent’s Dell so that you can cosy up to your Grandfather’s famous sausage and bread stuffing just a little bit sooner. Your current IP address, Name Address, and Remote Port information are all for the having--and without having to squeeze it out of your relatives at that.
A simple, no B.S. web tool, IPChicken.com is perfect for sorting out connection issues, setting up networked storage or getting your in-laws media server up and running in time to watch It’s a Wonderful Life after dinner.
Be sure to check in Every Friday for another edition of Maximum PC’s Cool Site of the Week.
