Whether you're writing a business letter or the great American novel, you don't need to fork over the cost of a few hardcover books just to use your PC as a typewriter. You don't need tons of extra bells and whistles getting in between you and your deathless prose, either. Jarte is a compact word processor--small enough to put on a USB key--that's completely free of charge.

Jarte's small size doesn't keep it from offering some well-selected features. For instance, WordWeb integration offers dictionary and thesaurus word lookup on the fly. Firefox fans will like the tabbed document windows. Jarte is designed to make it easier to find the documents, folders and fonts that you designate as favorites.

If you like Jarte but would appreciate extra features such as document notes, personal shortcuts, and a choice of background patterns, consider buying Jarte Plus from the vendor's site.

Dancing Paul. Just plain fun.

Todays site is one that is just plain fun. I have to admit that it took a few minutes to figure out what exactly was going on. But once I figured it out, it was totally fun. You will have to admit, after a few minutes here, that the designer is one totally warped dude. and i thank >Lockergnome for the link

We test the Web to help keep you safe from spyware, spam, viruses and online scams.
  • Why trust us?

  • Why isn't the security software you already have enough?

  • Do sites pay us to be rated?

  • SiteAdvisor is free, for the moment, and the basic service will remain so. It plans to add some premium services, including "protected search" and "protected browse" to disable clicks on sites rated red, disposable e-mail addresses to help reduce spam, and e-mail/instant messenger "link checking" to help prevent identity theft and other phishing scams.
    This service isn't a cure-all, by any means. There is no way to protect people who insist on relying exclusively on the efforts of others and doing no thinking for themselves. But for those of us who are careful already, this is another tool on the bar to make our Web lives a bit easier.
    Give it a shot, and let me know what you think.
    Disclaimer: I have no association with SiteAdvisor, apart from having done some beta testing.

    Wetpaint - Best Wiki So Far?

    <font color="#0000FF">Wetpaint - Best Wiki So Far?

    Wetpaint opened its doors today to show off a few sample sites that use its new, super-slick wiki platform.

    You can get a good overview of how users interact with wiki’s built on the platform by going through the rather tedious tour. Basically, its a highly user-friendly wysiwyg-type wiki platform. To see an example wiki, check out the xbox 360 site they’ve created.

    This is a hosted wiki solution, and Wetpaint’s business model is to add contextual advertising to each page of the wiki.

    HD Tune

    HD Tune is a wonderful piece of software for anyone wanting to monitor their hard drives health, check it for errors, monitor heat, or benchmark its performance.
    Its simple and easy to use. Performance is quick and accurate and very well supported with new versions being released every few months with fixes.
    You can also compare your hard drive's performance versus other drives by different companies, sizes, and performance. The benchmarking utility is the best feature and what most will use this program for (including myself). It will check your transfer rate on all three accounts including minimum, maximum, and overall average transfer. You will also get your access time, burst rate, and CPU usage from benchmarking.
    If you're looking for a way to keep an eye on your hard drive in terms of its health and performance, this is a great way to do so - and without cost.
