It aggravates us all. We receive an email that has been sent over and over again - and it's loaded with << >> and all sorts of other junky characters. But occasionally there's something valuable in the message that we'd like to copy without all of the digital garbage.

Here's where this little gem of a site comes in handy. Just copy and paste the text (junk and all). Then pick the characters you want removed, click "Strip It" and -Shazam - the text appears below all cleaned up!

This one is worth a desktop shortcut!

Nowadays it's a pretty good idea to revisit your passwords. The good old 1234 doesn't give you any protection because bots can figure that one out in a millisecond! "aunt mille" is just as bad. And they'll crack "Uncle Charlie" in about 2 milliseconds.

This "password meter" is designed to evaluate the strength of passwords and give you instantaneous visual feedback that helps you improve the strength of your passwords. The idea is to help you break your password bad habits!

This easy to use site could save you bundles of grief and buckets full of cash!

Trick  1

Getting ready for a little spring touch up -- maybe a fresh coat of paint for the living room and den? Want to make sure you don't over or under order your paint supply for the job?

Here's a no-download quick and easy calculator that will help you estimate the amount of paint you'll need to do the job -- including all the trim. Just enter the room dimensions plus the ceiling height along with the number of windows and doors. Then simply click "Calculate" and you'll be in business.

Brings a little confidence into the job!

Google is at it again! Now you can see where your friends are in real time on a map or in a list. With this Google gem you can easily get in touch using a text message, instant message, or phone call.

This interesting service works on most smart phones or on a full screen from your computer, if you don't have a compatible phone or data plan. And, if you are privacy addict, you can control or hide your location or just share it with certain friends - excluding any rascals you wish to keep in the dark!

And best of all it's on the house!

I have been thinking of changing my passwords.  Your program was excellent in determining a very strong one

Debra - Thanks for sharing this helpful info.  I liked the paint calculator - it's always helpful to get the scoop on the amount needed - before running out - or getting way to much.
