c|net Download.com Good site for freeware & sharewhare
Media Tagger Good MP3 Tagger, do it based on folder & file names, rename files, download information from FreeDB based on text searches, or automatically for albums.  It takes awhile to get efficient at using it, and no real help to speak of, but experimentation will make you good, and if you are like me, it's going to take you months to tag your collection as it is.

Qurb White List software that integrates with Outlook.  Only people you put on your list will have their emails end up in your inbox, all others are quarantined.  The only real solution to spam.  You can have it respond to all quarantined emails with an automated message, so if your friend emails you from a new address, they just respond to the automated email and get added to your white list.

Cascading Style Sheets CSS according to the World Wide Web Consortium.  As you can see, the background image element has been the standard since 1996, yet for some reason Netscape et al. still do not display it correctly.  So I figure why bother trying to be compliant with them.

ah, homebrew. . . . tastes so good, so many varieties, beer . . . well, brewing your own beer is rather easy. and it doesn't take much to get started, for a little more than $100 you can be brewing your first batch. read the how to brew book.  that and reading sites on yahoo should tell you everything you need to know. i can't remember where i got my starter equipment, but that place sucked anyway. now i pretty much do all my shopping at hombrew adventures. it's good place to get recipe kits. also, sign up for homebrew digest. only drinking beer is more fun than reading about it. enjoy

Homebrew Adventures This is my favorite beer site on the net.  A great store: I recommend trying the recipe kits, perfect for first timers and experts alike.  They also have forums where you can get advice from other homebrewers.

A subtle feature of this website that you may not discover immediately is that all the links will open in a new window; however, all these links will open in the same new window.  Allowing you to work with two windows on the screen.  Also, if you have any links that you think would help round out this page, please email me and send them on over.

Another feature you may not immediately notice is the hover links.  I have used style sheets to force an IE setting that I like upon you.  Links will not be underlined until you hover the mouse cursor over them.  They will also change color when you hover, click, or have previously visited them.

If you are running Netscape, go home now.  This site will never look good in Netscape.  I just recently embedded a font so you will see the page in the font that I like.  But before that, I hadn't changed the underlying technology in about 5 years.  In those 5 years Netscape never bothered to catch up with IE, so I'm not going to put the effort into being compatible with them.  Run a browser, such as IE, that supports current technologies.  AOL ruins all the software the buy, it's unfortunate for Netscape and ICQ.
