I was googling for some cool features to enrich my Google desktop while I found an applicaiton whichis said to be helpful.
Itâ€™s called Prism and is a Mozilla Lab experiment project. Actually itâ€™s nothing special.
It creates a simple window in which it can visualize a website making it look exactly like your desktopapplications.
It has a couple of possiblities like creating a desktop icon for your website, enablesome kind of navigation keys, show status messages on whatâ€™s happening on the desktop embeded application andshow navigation bars.
The project is said to be a revolutionary next step towards integrating the webwith your desktop
. You can check out Prismâ€™s website further on On mozillaâ€™s prism website . It might be interesting for you to check out Prism in action before you might go for a try on Youtube here .
Prism is both available via Firefox extension or a desktop application both of which provides you with the describedabove prism functionality. As a Debian user you might wonder if prism is available as a debian package, well there is one
, even though itâ€™s not a release part of the offician debian package distribution. If youâ€™d like to test prismvia itâ€™s debian package use the following prism deb package
,anyways the downside of using the 0.9 debian package is that you wonâ€™t be running prismâ€™s latest release.
If youâ€™d like to be running the latest prism version please download it from mozillaâ€™s website.
Well enough talk let me tell you my personal view on Prism. Itâ€™s a COMPLETE BULLSHIT! 🙂 I donâ€™t see how any geek wouldhave benefit of the app neither, how does it bridge in the web with the desktop.
Itâ€™s simply a crap that could takeof your daily lifetime to install and review 🙂

Running multiple skype accounts in parallel on Windows XP and 7 / Run Skype client twice or more on WindowsSaturday, May 4th, 2013
Reading Time: 2minutes
Whether you tried running simultaneously more than 1 Skype clients by clicking twice on Skype Desktop icon or invoking Skype via Windows Start menu; You already have figured out that Skype on Windows is set-up by defaykt to only support one logged in Skype user.
In case you wonder why on earth someone might need to run in parallel few Skype accounts on one Windows PC, possible scenario is;;;
You work for a company and just for clarity you have to communicate with clients from one skype name and with another skype name to communicate to company management.
In Linux in Skype version this is not so and thus for people like me who come from Linux it is rather uneasy to not be able to login in second Skype instance, whether you go to a friend who already keeps logged in with his Skype user …
Thus this triggered me to research a bit if simulatenous user login is possible?
Yes it is possible and very easy, to do so the user has to run manually Skype from command line like so:
On 32bit PC hardware with 32 bit of Microsoft Windows issue in win cmd.exe (command prompt) from:
START -> RUN -> cmd.exe
cd C:\\Program Files\\Skype\Phone\\
C:\\Program Files\\Skype\\Skype /secondary
or to directly paste in command prompt:
“C:\\Program Files\\Skype\\Phone\\Skype.exe” /secondary
If you are on a 64bit machine run in cmd prompt:
“C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Skype\Phone\\Skype.exe” /secondary
To easily run few instances of Skype in parallel, you can make shortcuts on Desktop. pointing to any of both above commands.
That's all now you can login as many skype users as you like on 1 Win PC. All parallel logged in users can receive and write messages. However you should bear in mind that situation with answering Skype calls is a bit complicated as you cannot speak in parallel through different logged in skype users. Anyhow whether you have to react on Skype voice / video calls incoming in similar or same time from 2 skype accounts, you can use – Set Skype Call on Hold functionality and hence keep voice video in parallel with different skype accounts.
