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.
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.

iQuip will let you easily add notes or quotes to your login window. It’s mostly written to give you a little quote or fortune, but you can also use it for something more important. 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.
What a great FREEBIE!!! Sorry, PC folks...this one is for Mac OS X only.
This is a podcast but they list links to the free software mentioned in the podcast. Some interesting freebies here, for sure.

Wednesday, November 15, 2006, Live broadcast from 1:00-2:00pm EASTERN TIME
In the wake of recent school shootings and the subsequent White House Conference on School Safety, the U.S. Department of Education will present a one-hour Web cast to provide parents, educators, school administrators and local safety personnel with an opportunity to review their emergency management plans. The Department's Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools will share successful strategies so that all who share the responsibility of protecting our children can learn more about how schools can help mitigate, prevent, prepare for, respond to and recover from a crisis. Join the broadcast to learn how to take positive steps to prevent school violence and respond quickly and effectively if an incident does occur. The Web cast will offer many opportunities for viewers to ask questions via email and get answers from the presenters.
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.

Reasonably priced and some interesting apps here...

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