Top Web Conferencing Options


DimDim, I recommend them!

  • They are free and great overall to get you started.
  • They do have a conference line that sometimes echos at times.
  • Free unlimited conference line minutes, you can’t beat that!
  • Unlimited free logins!
  • The record feature never seemed to work for me.
  • No downloads, no addon installs!

GoToMeeting, I recommend them!

  • $49.00 per monthly for 1 account.
  • $39.00 if paying annually, $468.00 per year for 1 account. Up to 15 people allowed.
  • The BEST conferencing phone feature, very easy.
  • The is a small download when presenting, so that is a downside.

Fuze Meeting

  • A very good service overall BUT 120 minutes is the max amount per month on the conference line (toll free line or fetch feature.) 6 cents per minute adds up! They should make this unlimited for paying users.
  • They have many price options.
  • The record feature never seemed to work for me.
  • Great Skype integration.


  • $49 per month.
  • Per pay annually $39 per month.

Feel free to let me know of any others and I’ll include them in this blog post.

Restarting/reboot a Windows XP remotely, use ‘shutdown’ command from the command console.
Run cmd.exe, and type ‘shutdown -r -t 0’ to restart the machine.
