The updated version of ieSpell Checker is now available. (v2.1.1.325)

For people like me this is a great little tool that you can access from Tools or have sitting on your Toolbar as an icon and spell check any forms that are typed on-line, including forums.

Just remember first to check which language you require "English (US), English (UK) or English (Canadian)" as the default is (US).

Directory Printer http://www.karenware.com/powertools/powertools.asp

Another nice tool is this directory printer tool, it allows you to print thee contents of a folder or even multiple folders, either direct to a printer or to a .txt file which can then be edited.

This tool is about a quarter of the way down the list of many other free programs from the link above.

************************************************************************************

Windows oemlogochanger from: http://www.snapfiles.com/reviews/tontin-press/oemlogochanger.html

Basically it allows you to add your own logo and some personalised text to the General page of "System Properties"
as can be seen below. Windows 98x is also mentioned, so it should also be comapatible.

It also creates a Support Information box, where you can also add up-to 10 lines of text.
Although I found the program does work, the View "preview" does not seem too.

***********************************************************************************

xxxx.flac file converter. I found this nice little (River Past Audio Converter).

It will convert .flac files to: ".wav, .mp3, .wma" and a few others and as a first time of trying it.
Although I found it "simple" to use, it converted my files from .flac to .wav instead of to mp3, but that was probably just me.

***********************************************************************************

Not forgetting "Foxit reader" for reading PDF files, nice "very small" program that runs from the folder.

***********************************************************************************

Anyone running SpywareBlaster 3.5x should receive a message saying to download the latest upgrade the next time they try to update it.
But anyone not currently running it can download it from here.

Free "As usual"

Great tip. Thanks

I always have the OED at my side, but it seems a little anachronistic in the pooter age.

Replicator is a good one to make backups of your markmarks, fav files etc automatically on to another drive.
