Fun Stuff

Free Stuff

These are free resources that I found invaluable in building this web site.

Spell Checker For Edit Boxes - A great freeware spell checker that works with Netscape as well as all text editors, i.e. notepad and virtually all other windows apps. You will also need to get a dictionary file from the same address.

Arachnophilia 2.5 - Great Freeware (Careware) HMTL WEB Site Workshop. Platform: Windows 95 / NT. Features: Imports fully formatted text, tables, outlines from any Windows 95-compliant application, automatically converts to HTML. Supports up to 6 Web browsers, switches between them in a flash.

So, you want to make a Web Page! 2.02 - An easy to use web page authoring tutorial written especially for Newbies. It will guide you gently though all the basics of html and web page design. Also available at this site are tutorials for forms, frames and tables.

RFtp - RFtp is a nice little freeware GUI-based FTP client for Windows® 95 and NT® 4.0. While having the load-time and footprint of an "applet", it retains the features and functionality of a full-sized application!

Yeah Write - Yeah Write is a small, fast, multi - tabbed, freeware word processor that won't take over half your hard disk.

EditPad - Freeware (Postcard Ware) replacement for Notepad. EditPad can open as many files at a time as you want. You change between the open files by clicking on their tabs. No hassle with heaps of overlapping windows. If you run EditPad again when there is already an instance running, the file(s) you wish to edit will be opened by the existing EditPad window. This means there will be at most one EditPad window open, which will save you from a lot of task switching. Of course, if you do need more instances, simply pick View|New editor from the menu. Block functions: save parts of your text to disk and insert a file in the current text. Specify many print settings: font, margins, headers/footers, etc. Option for keeping the EditPad window on top of all other windows. When you close an unsaved file, EditPad will either warn you, automatically save the file or do nothing. Reopen menu that lists the last 16 files opened. Configure the open and save dialog file filters. ANSI {=} OEM (DOS ASCII) conversion. EditPad puts an icon in the system tray that remains visible, even if EditPad is closed. This way you have easy and fast access to EditPad, without the need to keep it running all the time. MAPI support for emailing texts.
