Box Widget

Box Widget 

Thanks to  Brandon Watts for the link (and most of the words)

Sharing files is fun Obviously, if you want to share a collection of files with your audience, then you’re probably going to use your blog as the catalyst for this. Furthermore, blogs and widgets have become synonymous with one another, so a file widget would be very appropriate, and that’s exactly what the Box Widget is. You’ve probably seen these widgets slowly popping up on blogs all over the Internet, and the good news is that it’s extremely easy to create your own. Once you get to the site, all you need to do is select the files that you want to upload and start with, provide your e-mail address and a password for your account creation, and then upload the content to get the code for your widget. The widget itself is very attractive, and you can even preview files such as images and audio straight from the widget without even needing to download them! This is definitely the killer feature.


Check out mine at the start of this Blog and if you like it please let me know AND if you have any good PowerPoint apps I can share then please let me have them.

Everybody Panic! Line Game.

If you don't like hard games, here's another that you won't like. It's the Everybody Panic! Line Game. I did so poorly I won't give you my embarrassingly low score. The only instructions? Stay in the black... [Thanks to Paul C. for this gem.]

VLC (VideoLan Client)

VLC (VideoLan Client) Enjoy music and video in almost any format with this open-source player.
CD, DVD, MP3. Ogg, MPEG, Streaming. DivX, AVI, WMV. With the manifold formats and codecs for audio and video, no one player can handle them all. But VLC can handle most of them. This open-source player can handle almost anything you throw at it (the notable exception being Real files). Its clean, no-nonsense interface doesn't distract from what you want to see and hear. VLC (formerly VideoLan Client) already has most of the video codecs you might need, so if your usual player can't deal with a file, chances are good that VLC can do the job.

Gadwin PrintScreen

Gadwin PrintScreen
Why Gadwin PrintScreen?

On most Windows computers a full screen of data can be put on the clipboard by pressing the PrintScreen key. This sends whatever you see on screen to the clipboard, which you must then edit in a different graphics program to cut to the right size and image format. Here are some other reasons not to use the prefabricated PrintScreen function of Windows:

Full screen of data can be put only on the clipboard.

It is either difficult or impossible to capture some elements of a Windows screen, such as different shaped cursors.

You spend too much time making image captures.

Use Gadwin PrintScreen to save time and enhance your screen shots! Download freeware Gadwin PrintScreen now and try it out! This is the best way to learn what it can do.

There are a variety of basic photo editing tools like cropping, resizing, red-eye correction, and a handy auto-fix button to make a picture look better without fussing around with each setting.

You can save it to your hard drive, print it, e-mail it or even publish it if you've authorized Picnik to sync up to your online photo service. Picnik lets you use a number of photo hosting services like Flickr, ImageShack and PhotoBucket. Also cool is the ability to send your photo to Costco Photos


Paint.NET is free image editing and photo manipulation software designed to be used on computers that run Windows. It supports layers, unlimited undo, special effects, and a wide variety of useful and powerful tools.


Simple, intuitive user interface
Every feature and user interface element was designed to be immediately intuitive and quickly learnable without assistance. It is also designed to be immediately familiar to users of the original MS Paint software that comes with Windows.

Usually only found on expensive or complicated professional software, layers form the basis for a rich image composition experience. You may think of them as a stack of transparency slides that, when viewed together at the same time, form one image.

Powerful Tools
Paint.NET includes simple tools for drawing shapes, including an easy-to-use curve tool for drawing splines or Bezier curves. The Gradient tool, new for 3.0, has been cited as a huge improvement over similar tools provided by other software. The facilities for creating and working with selections is powerful, yet still simple enough to be picked up quickly. Other powerful tools include the Magic Wand for selecting regions of similar color, and the Clone Stamp for copying or erasing portions of an image. There is also a simple text editor, a tool for zooming, and a Recolor tool.

Unlimited History
Everybody makes mistakes, and everybody changes their mind. To accommodate this, every action you perform on an image is recorded in the History window and may be undone. Once you've undone an action, you can also redo it. The length of the history is only limited by available disk space.

Special Effects
Many special effects are included for perfecting your images. Everything from blurring, sharpening, red-eye removal, distortion, noise, and embossing are included. Also included is our unique 3D Rotate/Zoom effect that makes it very easy to add perspective and tilting.
Adjustments are also included which help you tweak an image's brightness, contrast, hue, saturation, curves, and levels. You can also convert an image to black and white, or sepia-toned.

Open Source and Free
Paint.NET is provided free-of-charge, and the source code (all 133,000 lines of it) is also available for free under generous licensing terms. The bulk of Paint.NET is written in C#, with only a small amount of code related to setup and shell-integration written in C++.
