Awesome Screenshot: A Chrome Extension That Lives Up to its Name
Brought to you by the folks behind Diigo (my current favorite for keeping track of bookmarks) this addon does more than take screen shots. Check out the article for a complete rundown. At the moment the addon works only with Google Chrome. I've been using Lightshot on other browsers, it's available as a Firefox addon, Chrome extension, IE addon and Desktop application.

Public Domain Clip Art
Public Domain Clip Art: 25,000 Public Domain clips and growing. All Clip Art is free and no registration is required.

Add Search The Internet Link to Windows 7 Start Menu
Great tip, especially if you search from the search box on the start menu.

Your Computer Is Lying To You… The Epidemic Of Rogues
Clear, concise information and some excellent resources.

New Games Come To Bing
What do pool sharks, fancy flowers, sassy hair do’s and spooky fish all have in common? They’re all part of a stellar line up of new casual games that can be found on Bing – available right in the Bing entertainment browser.

Simon Hensby is a successful "failure" in my eyes. He gave up his regular job because his autistic kid was having trouble and could not cope in regular school. He lived on part-time jobs just to keep going.

In the meantime he was creating useful educational software that an autistic child could use. Now millions of people and schools enjoy what he sacrificed to create!

Now to me that is success! SEE MORE AT SCHOOLGENIUS

Group Blogs and Websites for Free

Added Comment: Blastgroups provides lots of freebies. However it has a confusing interface. I have been doing computers since the 70's and it IS confusing to me. However if you can wade through, you will get LOTS of great stuff for your group. - Computer Doc Blastgroups Claims that it is FREE and you can ...

Calendars – Photo Albums – Forums – Blogs Email Lists – Videos – Audio – Links – Files I just discovered this site and have NOT tried them. If you try them and have some comments, they are certainly VERY WELCOME! I am signing up today so that I can see how it works and report back to you.
