Cool Tools
  • This past week I found this free download Google Earth. It is simply the most amazing tool I have found for my PC. Yesterday I was in Manhattan, Area 51, The Great Wall of China, Detroit and Chargers house. Thats right I was chatting with Charger and was curious, so I asked him if he would give me his address. He did. *I will advise to everyone to never give out your address to anyone in a chatroom* I then described his house to him.

    Google Earth is a series of satellite pictures pieced together to create a map of the earth, some pictures are in high resolution. I was able to zoom in on vehicles at Area 51 with good clarity, Chargers house with relative clarity and a bulldozer working at Ground Zero in Manhattan with very good clarity .

    I could go on and on about the features but there are too many to list.



    What useful/amazing free tools have you found online?

  • I've had that downloaded but never got around to actually checking it out- not the type of thing I'd be using that often. No problem linking to that one, Rex. :)

    Here's a handy site to keep hold of if you are ordering stuff online from out of country- a currency converter. They keep their rates up to date and can easily show just how much you're actually spending on that game on eBay! ;)

  • A while ago I found this cool program that cancels the need to memorize long and hard-to-remember URL:s. You simply type in what the requested page is about and it finds it for you.

    Oh, my. Now that I've stopped laughing at my own idiocy may I add a few services?

    This site offers all of you who can't afford an electrical tuner or you who want to train your sence of pitch a standard guitar tuning set. EADGHE.

    Also, I couldn't help noticing the lack of Swedish from the babelfish link A-J posted. So if you ever find me "speaking" swedish in here you can translate it, word by word, here.
