I would like to suggest two sites for GPS mapping and
for your home office section.

by 1earthling (not verified) on 27. January 2012 - 14:08  (87888)

In Home and Office, you should mention which provides free reminders by email, sms or phone call -

There a a few more music streamers that need to be looked at and evaluated. I have attached the links. I'm biased on Sockso because of it's customization abilities. I have used all three in the past but I still currently use Sockso.

Thanks Pbouthil for the suggestions but the software products do not fit into this category of online apps and services as defined in the Introduction section.

by pbouthil on 28. January 2012 - 20:52  (87954)

Sorry. I thought I was under the right category.

I use to be a Gizmo member years ago until you partnered up with another organization. I loved your newsletters and so did miss them. I could not believe my luck when I came across your website. And from what I have seen so far you appear to be holding to your high standards. A true admirier of your dedication.

Here is a free pasting tool for debugging the code, similar to any other pastebin website but has support for all major languages syntax. The diff tool lets the programmer/debugger see what changes other user has made in the original code.

This may sound pretty self-centered of me, but have you guys tried Bob? It will fit perfectly under the education section of this site. It is a new site where students can go and ask for help or provide help to other students. But because it is new (less then a month old), there isn't much content on it yet.Stating that, it has had a promising start in my school. It's URL is [edited out]

by Anupam on 11. December 2011 - 5:46  (84805)

The site has no content at all, and therefore won't be considered for inclusion here. Sorry.

by ehqhelp on 12. December 2011 - 2:33  (84859)

Okay, I understand. I would just like you guys to keep it in mind, for when it has content. It is just a start up project. Thanks anyways.

Regarding the best PC Games catagory, I'd like to suggest you check out Kongregate,com. Ad-free, hundreds of games with badges and points awarded on many games. It's the best I've seen yet!

by Bobi on 8. December 2011 - 3:47  (84628)

Wow!! What an awesome list. Thanks so much for all your time and hard work in putting this together. Much appreciated.

WebmasterGate's HTML / XHTML Beautifier is no longer available ;-(.

by Jojo Yee on 8. December 2011 - 13:16  (84650)

Thanks for the info Nam. It's now removed from the list.

Wow! I cannot believe Gizmo's Freeware. My mind already hurt before I bookmarked it and now I am totally numb with all of the intelligence that exists for this medium. Totally numb. I do not know where to start, stop, use, throwaway! Wow, I think a college education could be replaced just reading Gizmo's web material.

The sync service is deprecated as of

Content very good.

by AnonymousEjaz`Mir (not verified) on 24. October 2011 - 8:03  (82046)

Is this a software for downloading or just a bit of script? can someone elaborate, please.

Best Free Online Webmail --> GMX Mail. Must be a joke, trying to create a new account with them goes nowhere, looks like they just want to access your facebook account.

by Jojo Yee on 2. October 2011 - 1:19  (80715)

Unless you opt for logging in with a Facebook ID, you can create a new GMX account with a non-Facebook ID and password at your choice. I just tried it with no issue.

by jmronet on 2. October 2011 - 1:56  (80717)

Tried one more time with and without login to facebook, receive this message: "Your registration could not be processed at the moment. Please try again later. If the error persists, please contact us." Searching for this error shows that other people receive the same error.

by MidnightCowboy on 2. October 2011 - 6:20  (80722)

A lot of folks prefer GMX to Google for reasons of privacy, although I use both. GMX does have it's quirks though. In Linux, no matter how I tweak the settings, Evolution constantly throws up repeated requests to re-enter my password, although this doesn't happen with Thunderbird. There are also periods when I cannot access my GMX account at all.
