Informative discussion and great efforts.thank you for providing.

Tried to like Flipboard multiple times, but always failed. Guess it doesn't work for everyone.

The TOMA - free internet TV link has a REALLY scary warning pop up. Just hope I didn't get zinged. I exited the site without clicking on anything.

First time in a long time that I got into one of those areas.

Thanks HmS-PA for pointing out. "TOMA - Internet TV" is now removed from the list as it's a browser-based version of JLC's internet TV viewer and the latter is no more maintained.

A good online zip converter:

Please include in the list.

Is ScheduleOnce free?
I visited the link but couldn't find a free plan.
The minimal plan starts at $5/user/month.

Please check.

A free plan has been gone, so from the list. Thanks Realist.

TeuxDeux is not free.
It's $3/month or $24/year.

Thanks Realist for your feedback. Unfortunately it has no more free option and has now been removed from the list.

Unfortunately Grooveshark, is no more. They left fans a goodbye message on their site, then they packed up their groovy dorsal fins, and headed for friendlier waters. I'm going to share a little of their closing post here, if that's ok. An epitaph, perhaps;
"Dear Music fans,
Today we are shutting down Grooveshark..."
It goes on to offer what seems to be a humble, and sincere apology for infringing on copyrights. They added a short list of alternative sites for music, and then they beg fans to "respect the artists, songwriters," and everyone involved in the industry, by using only licensed music services. Then it closes with...
"Yours in music,
Your friends at Grooveshark
April 30, 2015..." *sniffles, and dabs at her eyes with a tissue*
What? Too sarcastic? Kidding aside, I actually really loved Grooveshark. I was a member for several years. I'm sad that they had to shut down.

Thanks for your feedback darknesseternal. This item has now been removed from the list.

Mammoth task, excellent reference resource. Due to the sheer size of it though there'll always be the odd problem with some services -- most notably in the field of song lyrics, where time and again the issue of copyright crops up.

I can't for the life of me see why I shouldn't be able to pick up on all the words of some of my favourite songs -- all the words, because very often the lyrics get lost. Major so-called "lyric finders" like LyricWikia, mentioned on here, repeatedly stumble in their searches, reporting that "unfortunately, we are not licensed to display the full lyrics for this song at the moment. Hopefully, we will be able to in the future. Until then. . . how about a random page?"

Er, well, thanks but no thanks. I'm looking to singalong to the The Last Resort by The Eagles, and very much doubt I'm going to be arrested as I drive along because my voice is in breach of copyright. LyricWikia's offer of "a random page" ain't exactly what I had in mind. Good thing, then, that is still around. is a better alternative to KeepVid for YouTube, Vimeo, etc. downloading, as of lately. No need for Java or other plugins, works with 1080p, is simpler to use, supports more video services, and has no ads that I could notice, or they must be completely unobtrusive. I say definitely replace KeepVid as the recommendation with this one!

Forgive me if I have missed it, but MS are now free online

Yes it is, Tony. It was included in the list during the previous update.

On line notes organisers, note makers etc.

Does anybody know why none of these programs offer a simple import facility for existing data we might have on our Windows machines, such as a comma delimited, tab delimited or other simple file.

In the 21st century we really shouldn't need to re-enter all our existing data at the keyboard to make full use of these online programs. None of the ones listed appear to offer such a capability as far as I can see, including on line database programs I have also found.

Any suggestions?

I use a free resource booking service
I suggest a new category "Shared resource (Room) booking"


will not come up.

Your feedback is welcome cpedley. OneBudget is now delisted.

I'm getting a message that will shut down on March 31.

Thanks for your comment emgil3. is now removed from the list.
