Do you have a hard time figuring out domain names, then find out they're already taken? Well look no further! Generate some free to use domain names in seconds then register it! A useful tool indeed.

Developers often create codes, e.g. HTML, CSS snippets, etc. Developers will then often reuse these in their other projects. Do you want life a little easier when managing your codes? Well then - look no further! MyCodeStock stores them remotely for easy access.

This is rather an interesting, detailed and informative site that I found today. DarkGovernment is like Wiki-leaks, by providing up-to-date news what isn't usually found on the media. The difference between this site and Wiki-leaks is that this site isn't compromising secret government documents. It also has a very welcoming home-page, very well designed.

Have an interest reading over 14,000 emails from former Governor Sarah Palin's personal account? Well - this site gives you the real emails in a gmail-style way. I haven't read all, nor do I intend to, but still found this interesting. The site SarahsInbox.com is a project by the Sunlight Foundation and the emails were released under the FOIA.

OnGuardOnline

This site is an initiative by the Federal Trade Commission, as stated below. It's goal is to teach and promote online safety. For example, OnGuardOnline.gov has a large database of resources to protect you from scams and how to prevent viruses and malware. But that's not it. Social networking and identity fraud are also big in today's world, so this has also been covered on the website.

Qualys

I was reading through my Google feeds today and came across this interesting website. I have found a number of interesting tools, in particular Qualys SSL Labs. It gives a fantastic and detailed report about the SSL certificate. For example, I looked up the report for 'encrypted.google.com'. It gives an overall rating, the Cipher Strength, veiled from, veiled to and whether the certificate is from a trusted source.

This website will make your life easier when you want to delete an account. They don't have instructions for all websites, but they have a large range of sites listed. They have set out three colour coded groups: white, grey and black. The white ones are easy to delete, the grey are moderate and can take some time while the black groups are permanent accounts you cannot delete.

Moved to a new location in Australia and not sure what school to put your child in? What to compare schools in your local area through postcode? Want to know the school's academic rates? Maybe you're into politics and want to know how much Government's funding is going into each school? Well here is a perfect website for you! The reports aren't written by the schools themselves, thus the reports aren't biased. Recommended site for Australian parents.

Interesting website. Lets say you were out on Sunday and didn't get the chance to look at all the photos your friends put up, or you want to read your comments? But the problem is - you're at work and you don't want to get caught. What do you do? Install Excellbook. What is it? Basically, it makes your Facebook appear in an excel like way. Pretty sneaky, uh?

"Is your browser configuration rare or unique? If so, web sites may be able to track you, even if you limit or disable cookies". Basically, Panopticlick tests your browser to see how traceable your browser really is. Give it a shot! I found the results interesting.

The Australian Communications Media Authority (ACMA) is the place to go to report digital crime in Australia. Complaints in regards to online content, spam, radio and even TV complaints can be made to the ACMA. The site is relatively easy to navigate and make reports. I have made several complaints through them and they dealt will all matters in a very short amount of time. Highly recommended.

This is the ideal website to see if your desired username is still available. All you have to do is write down your username, click "chk" and it will give you the results of which websites you can use your username on.

What do you love is a recent Google initiative.
It works like Google search, but in a completely different way. Enter something you love, then you can get further information on it. For example, Firerfox will return the web ranking, books about FF and even how to pronounce Firefox in 57 different languages. Nothing too flash, but some may find some use out of this.

RSS Feed Search Engine is a fantastic tool. The best way to avoid spam is to be careful who you give your email address to. We often want to keep up-to-date with the latest news, or subscribe to a newsletter. Many will put in their email address without considering the risks.

Just because you believe a site is safe doesn't mean you should enter your email address into their mailing system. Why? Because hackers for instance could penetrate their security system and steal all email addresses, and worse sell them to marketers. With RSS Feeds, you don't have to worry about that.

This site makes finding RSS feeds easy. For example, type down "Google" or "Firefox" to subscribe.

Not a bad blog. This is an unofficial Facebook blog that provides you with some insight as to what is happening in the world of Facebook. It also shows you the bigger picture (In example, how Facebook is changing society and how its changed the world of communication and media). Legitimate website, no viruses.

Real-time HTML Editor is another great source for programmers. Create your HTML code and see how it turns out real-time. It saves valuable time, it makes coding easier and brings out the best for your customers web-experience.

A game scientifically shown to make you smarter

I have given this game a go and found it really interesting. Might be something others might like to give a go. The quotes below are referenced to this page: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/brain-workshop-game-scientifically-shown-smarter/
---
"Improve your working memory and fluid intelligence by playing a game. This isn't some vapid marketing claim; it's the result of various scientific tests.

"Brain Workshop, a free game you can install on Linux, Window and Mac machines, creates the exact circumstances of an activity shown in three different academic studies to improve one's short-term memory and problem solving skills.

"Fluid intelligence measures how people adapt to new situations and solve problems they've never seen before. Fluid intelligence differs from crystallized intelligence, which takes into account skills and knowledge that have been acquired like vocabulary, grammar and math".

The Free Software Foundations mission is to secure the future of individuals, schools and businesses around the world. This site provides many free programs that you can install. I haven't come across viruses, or any problems with the site or the downloads.

Primadesk: Do you want to backup your cloud? Well sign onto this site and backup Yahoo, Facebook, Dropbox, Google and more. The site is safe and is trusted by both VeriSign & TRUSTe. The site supports AES-256bit encryption.

Startmenu7.com

Startmenu7

7/25/11

StartMenu7 is a wicked small piece of software that increases the appearance and improves the Start Menu navigation experience. It comes in two versions, one free and one paid, but are both overall pretty good. The one downside to it is that it will be a little slower than the regular Start Menu, but not by much.
