When you spend 6-10 hours a day on
the Internet like I do, you can sometimes forget that the
tools and resources you use everyday (and take for
granted) might rate an incredibly helpful discovery to
people who don't already know they exist.
Whether they help you save time, find what you need, or
save a lot of money, these tools and services rate my
highest recommendation for just plain making life easier,
faster, and cheaper.
** Short Keys **
Available for free trial at www.shortkeys.com/lite.htm,
Short Keys allows you to create shortcut keys to cut down
on repetitive typing tasks. You can pre-program it quickly
and easily to type in huge chunks of text.
I use it primarily to quickly respond to questions I
receive repeatedly each day because it allows me to
respond personally, but also saves hours of time typing
the same answers over and over.
** Spyware Detection & Removal **
Spyware ranks a close second behind viruses as the top
threat to your security online. Viruses can destroy your
computer, but spyware can destroy your life!
Though many programs exist to detect and combat spyware, I
personally prefer "Spy Sweeper" from www.WebRoot.com.
** Mail Washer **
Available for free trial at www.mailwasher.net,
this program enables you to spot and delete spam and
viruses before downloading them to your computer.
I couldn't survive without this program and it rates the
best $30 investment you can make to combat spam!
** PayPal **
If you want to send or receive money online (personal or
business), PayPal.com gets my highest recommendation.
PayPal experienced service issues a few years ago, but
since online auction giant eBay purchased them, www.PayPal.com
is extremely professional and well managed.
** GoDaddy.com **
Cheap, reliable, easy to use domain name registrar that
only charges $8.95 per year for each domain name you
Also, enhanced security against domain
"hijacking" means I purchase all my domains
** Elance.com **
With an entire world of professional help available
online, even the smallest business can afford to hire out
for just about any type of help you can imagine.
An online auction style site, www.Elance.com
allows service providers to bid on your job and you select
them based on price, experience, and feedback on previous
** Google **
rates as the Web's best search engine. When I need to find
something online, Google usually produces exactly what I
need to locate!
** Front Page **
Say what you want about Microsoft, but the FrontPage html
editor has served me well for the last 7 years (and
counting). Though I don't use the more advanced features,
I can always count on FrontPage to help me get web pages
** Smart FTP **
Log on to www.smartftp.com
and download a free copy of the easiest FTP program I've
If you need to transfer files to and from a web server and
you know how to use Windows Explorer, Smart FTP will
enable you to upload files to the web like a pro in
** Note Tab Light **
Perhaps my favorite tool of all.
Note Tab enables me to easily format text messages for my
newsletters, manipulate html code and remove formatting
from word processing documents. Log on to www.notetab.com
for a free copy of the "light" version.
