Fog Creek Copilot

This is a neat service. Like GotoMyPC, Copilot lets you control a computer remotely. This can be really handy for computer technicians helping long-distance clients. GoToMYPC requires software to be installed and configured and a firewall to be opened up, something that may be too complicated to walk the client through. Copilot requires only a 30-second install and is already pre-configured once executed. It's a bit expensive at $9.95 USD for a day (GoToMyPC is only $19.95 for one month). However, they do accept Paypal as well as credit card and the cost can be passed onto the client. It also requires only Windows 98 to use.

    Thanks. Yeah... I haven't been doing it that long. I've never been blogrolled before. Will it hurt? ;-)
