Finds of the Week is a list of web sites I've come across lately that are interesting, fun, or useful (or all three). I hope you enjoy them. -Rhiannon

Every Time Zone
From the site "Never warp your brain with Time Zone math again." So useful. :)

520,000+ Awesome Free High Quality Images
Pixabay is my favorite site when I want to find some great, free imagry. There are photos, illustrations, vector images and even videos. All images and videos are Creative Commons CC0 Public Domain and are free for commercial (and personal) use with no attribution required. When you search for something, the first row of images you see are commercial images by Shutterstock that are available for purchase, the rest are free. Some images will generate several pages of results, some just a few. Hint: look at the tags of the images you like so you can use them to find other similar images.

Using Metered Connections for Devices in Windows 8.1
A metered connection is a great tool when you have limited bandwidth and have to pay or have your connection throttled if you exceed your allowed usage. There's a link at the bottom of the article on how to do the same thing in Windows 10.

Trailer Town
Trailer Town bills itself as "The Movie Trailer Capital of the World". If you like movie trailers, you can view the latest ones at the site, or get the week’s best trailers sent to your inbox. Note: I don't have the bandwidth to view videos, I'm sharing the site for those who do. :)

How to Restore Windows to Factory Settings
Factory settings can be many things, but this comprehensive article covers several ways to restore Windows to its original (default, factory) state in Windows XP, 7, 8, and Windows 10.

Yup, TimeAndDate is the best. [Commercial reference removed] In addition to the boilerplate info provided on similar sites, TimeAndDate provides longitude-latitutde, languages spoken, currency, current weather, etc., even for little cities like Oranjestad, Aruba. I wish they had a desktop application.

I like too, it does have many useful features. I like because you can tell at a glance what the times zones are. Since the crew here at Gizmo's is truly global in nature (the crew is scattered all over the planet) it's very useful. is my preferred choice for time zone info because it offers many other useful features. Any website that can offer computer tips will likely find it's way into my bookmarks though and I'll probably add Pixabay too.
