Not a Dime Ten

Ten More Things to Distract Bill Peschel from Writing

Freeware caution: always scan free downloads of anything for bugs and other threats before dumping the programs into your hard drive.

1. The Netter.com is giving away free downloads of The Big Book of Web Design Freebies, which promises "1000's of free webmaster resources, freeware and tools for web design."

2. eQit all-in-one freeware offers a clock, diary, notepad, program launcher and contact database; dockable, re-sizeable and configurable.

3. Freeware Arena is giving away an ebook about freeware sites here.

4. Manage your agendas, activities, notes, contacts, documents and so forth with Kplan Personal.

5. Paperless Printer is an ebook maker and document exchange utility.

It creates thumbnails, resize photos and generate HTML pages"; and PhotoView, "an easy and compact photo viewer for Windows. It allows you to view and organize your digital photos easily and comfortably."

7. Pindersoft.com has two freebies of interest to writers, PS Whiteboard and Floating Clock.

8. Send to Notepad is a neat little utility tool to cut down on the cut and paste time -- click on the StN task bar icon and your highlighted text is copied to notepad.

  1. Very nice. Thank you. I always worry about freeware. It always seems to have nasty spyware that comes with it. But there is allot of good ones out there. Nice links.

  3. I do not need anymore distractions than the fifty trillion I already have! Okay, so maybe not fifty trillion. It sure feels like it though.

    p.s. I can't wait until JUNE!! Cyprien is always going to be my favorite but Lucan is a very close second!

  4. I got Rebel in the mail too. Thanks. ;)

    And you do this to me every time. Hubby goes nuts when I add a new cool freeware program on the computer. "Do you really need another sticky note program?"

    Also bought WOTC, awsome! Read it and I'll be re-reading it again soon as there were some wonderful tips in there. It was just the sort of thing I was looking for but couldn't find.
