<!--smart_paging_filter-->This category is reserved for finds by our Editor Rhiannon Dent.

Items should consist of at least two paragraphs.

The first should be a "teaser" paragraph. This paragraph will be automatically published in our RSS feed. It should state the nature of the find and the benefits without mentioning the product name or providing a product link. For example:

"For months I've been looking for a good way of deleting 'undeletable' files. Finally I've discovered a free utility that does the job reliably and simply."

The second paragraph should at the very least, expand the benefits, name the product and provide a product link. For example:

"Unlocker is a tiny 230KB utility that works with Windows 2000 and XP. Vista users are out of luck. Just right click on the 'undeletable file', select 'Delete with Unlocker' from the context menu and next time you boot the file will be gone for good."

You can have a third paragraph if you wish; indeed as many as you like. However there must at least be a second paragraph after the opening "teaser" paragraph.

Freeware Game of the Week (Play this before you Die!)

Apr 9 - Apr 15

Why do you think that people say the best things in life are free? Well, I discovered one answer in early 2004 when I learned of a game that was the fruit of five long years of development by Daisuke Amaya during his spare time.

This free game turned into a classic, won him universal acclaim and has given him god-like status in the gaming world.
