FontStruct allows you to build, share and download fonts you design and customize (registration required, and you have to agree to release the fonts you create online under CCL.)

For the Mac users out there who are looking for new/different fonts, check out what's available over at

OpenGoo is "an Open Source Web Office" which allows you and a team to "create, collaborate, share and publish all its internal and external documents. . .collaborate on: Text documents, Spreadsheets (coming soon), Presentations, Task Lists, E-mails, Calendars, Web Links, and Contacts. . .

SSuite Office ~ The Fifth Element might just live up to its boxoffice title; this office suite "runs on all Windows platforms and all hardware systems. With its full 32-bit architecture and stability, it can improve your productivity and document format compatibility.
This office suite introduces some new innovative concepts in interface design and user-friendly application interaction. You get instant system access, top class application design and a cleaner desktop to name a few. The graphical-user-interface has been made into a more iconic-toolbar, mouse centric type of interface. This increases user-interaction speed and user productivity. So... if you enjoy a more uncluttered desktop, cleaner looking application interfaces, and faster software interaction, then this office suite is for you!" (OS: Win 9x/ME/NT/2K/XP/2K3/Vista)

Sysygy Image Viewer "generates a virtual 3D museum with your pictures on the wall. You can walk freely through the gallery and look at your pictures. This is a complete different dimension of a slide show. While visiting the gallery, you can listen to your favorite music, too. You just have to create a your own playlist, which is very easy. But thats not all. Sysygy Image Viewer supports a Multi visitor mode. This means, that you can create a server where you AND others are able to connect to. Then you can walk through the gallery together with your friends or your famliy members, although they might be hundres of kilometers way. This method can be interpreted as a virtual couch. You can chat with everybody, who is connected to your server, too" (OS: Windows 2000/XP; Vista and 98/ME might work but are not officially supported)

Someone (you know who you are) asked Tom to find the link to "that word editing lister freeware with the wordcounter PBW mentioned last year." I think you mean Wordflood, which offers customizable word and phrase lists, one-click word usage frequency stats and a displayed worcounter. Would probably be a godsend for copywriters. This is not freeware, but they do offer a 14-day free trial download if you'd like to test drive it first.

Wordopedia is "a free dictionary program, designed to be redistributed. You simply edit the 'wrdped.lst' file to create your own dictionary. Then you redistribute this EXE file and the dictionary file. You may also elect to simply use the dictionary on your own computer. In any event, each copy of the program needs its own dictionary. Thus, it's like having your own custom-made dictionary program. You can customize the appearance of Wordopedia, by including your own bitmap (just call it "logo.bmp") and assigning your own title, version and dictionary description. You can even make the logo clickable, so that clicking on it will open an URL/webpage. Furthermore, you can choose whether or not users may add/delete entries from the interface" (OS: Windows 9x/ME/XP/2000/NT)


  1. Some of these look very interesting. I only wish they had linux versions for use.

    When I get time, I may try these under the linux wine application to see if they run.

    (For those who do not know what wine is, wine is a linux application which allows well behaved windows applications to run on the linux system.)

    Thanks for posting!

    It does not need to run on Java or .NET. It also has over 30 very useful applications included.
