Not sure if I posted this one before but it's a definite site to check out. Lots and lots of info about CSS here and great links too. - Portable software for USB drives | Your Digital Life, Anywhere™
I have been using these apps since they first came out and they are fantastic. I now have 3 USB keys. These new suite includes a lot of free, no spyware, no ads, no trials versions of great usable software. Then you can add more apps to the suite, including a virus scanner, zip program, etc. A great addition to your software library.



Nice site for listening to music and more. I didn't register yet; just listening to others' stations.

I came across the site on another blog. This person had the player embedded right into his blog which is really nice. I wonder if the directions are posted after you register.



Launched in Adobe Labs on Nov 21 is Kuler, a very cool application that let you manipulate the Color Wheel on the fly. A extremely useful tool when you are seeking for color themes for a new design. Thumbs up for the creativity!

This looks like one to really check out. You should have an Adobe User ID to fully experience the site.

It might be a great idea to put your contact information on the login screen. Prior to a training or if you lose it, your contact information will be right there for all to see.

The Web cast will offer many opportunities for viewers to ask questions via email and get answers from the presenters.

Zamzar - Free online file conversion

Zamzar - Free online file conversion

Zamzar, a free online file conversion tool, launched last week. Like a similar tool, Media Convert, Zamzar allows users to upload a file and have it converted into a number of formats. Common uses for Zamzar include converting PDF documents to Word, iTunes AAC files to MP3, and Flash (flv) files to MP4 for iPod use. Up to five files can be converted simultaneously.

The process takes a few minutes - Zamzar emails a link to the converted file when it is done. Note, however, that Zamzar is not able to convert DRM’d files. The maximum file size is 100 MB, but there are no limits on the number of files converted.

Yreux Software : iChartwork

Yreux Software : iChartwork

iChartwork is a fun little thing (and I’m surprised it isn’t built into iChat.) This app “will sync your avatar on iChat and/or Adium and the artwork of the song playing in iTunes.” So, if you have Will Smith blaring from your iTunes collection, his album cover will be your icon in iChat.

For the Mac only of course!

Widget Manager

Widget Manager:

"Widget Manager is the original, free preference pane that lets you manage Widgets under Mac OSX 10.4. With Widget Manager you can inspect, remove and disable any Dashboard Widgets, including the default Apple Widgets."

Aptana: The Web IDE

Aptana: The Web IDE: "The Web IDE"
Aptana is an open source Web IDE, an application for creating web sites — like Dreamweaver. It includes support for HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, and XML. If you forget a Javascript command, use Aptana’s built-in reference manual. Other features include tabs, a debugger, syntax highlighting, and multiple panes. Aptana is available for Mac, Windows, and Linux, and as an Eclipse plugin. If you design or develop web sites, give Aptana a try.

I may just do that! It looks clean and neat.

AppDelete: For the MAC only

AppDelete is a way to delete an application and all of it’s associated items. Just drag and drop an app and off you go.

I like that it puts all of the items into a folder and puts it in your Trash. That way, you can still take a look to be sure that it didn’t take anything it wasn’t supposed to take.
