Net Zero Ten

Ten Things for Free off the Net

Freeware caution: always scan free downloads of anything for bugs and other threats before dumping the programs into your hard drive.

1. The Print Screen button works fine for me, but if you'd rather have options on what you capture, check out the freeware Capture-A-Screenshot.

2. Cheat codes for Sudoku? Until there are, here's a program to solve the puzzles you can't: Crazy Sudoku Solver.

3. One for the kids -- or the kid in you -- FreeTrix (like Tetris, only cuter.)

4. Can't browse and spell at the same time? IeSpell has a freeware spell checker add-on for Internet Explorer here.

5. No mess, no fuss: Light Affected Painting freeware helps you paint with beautiful beams of light.

6. Post-It Pizazz: Veign's Note-It supercharges the desktop/virtual sticky note.

7. Dirk Paehl offers much for free on his interesting web site, including a page of PDF-related freeware downloads.

8. Delete stuff on the clipboard by accident too often? Forget what's on it? Dude, you have no idea. Anyway, like me, you might give Smart Cut-n-paste a test drive.

9. For the technofolks out there: Textplorer freeware is a quick, clean editor for text, binary and structured data files in text format.

10. Notepad on crack: The personal Wiki notepad ZuluPad.


  1. I installed the "Note-It" thing on my computer, but it screwed it up (for lack of a more technical word to use). Ugh!

    I'm going to download the freebies on .pdf and read them. I still have the one you did to tie in If Angels Burn and Private Demon. *g*

    Oh no... You mean to tell me I have to wait a whole year to read the next installment in the Darklyn series?! *bangs her head against the desk*

    Dear Lynn,

    Thank you very much for mention of Freetrix. I'm developer of this cute game and I assure everyone that it hasn't any adware, spyware and any other threat.

    Thanks again and good luck to you.

  3. I've been looking for something like ZuluPad. Right now I use WikiServer, which is overkill. I want something that lets me hyperlink within the text at any time, like wiki software does.
