Posted by ebowen On February - 17 - 2009

No, it’s not that guy you know that wears jorts…it’s a toolbox of web based applications that do almost every task you can do online.  From calendars to money converters and video editors to money management…this site has it all.  I didn’t know that you could do half of this stuff online let alone that there were this many options available…

Truck Load of Free Software and More

Posted by ebowen On January - 17 - 2009

Here are some great download sites that I highly recommend:

General Software:

1. Download.com…the old stand-by but it’s good if you’re looking for something in particular…a lot of share-ware crap though

2. Filehippo.com… collection of software

3. APPHiT.com…another good site

Game Patches and Demos:

1. FileFront.com is an awesome resource for all gaming files.

2. GameSpot.com is another great resource for gaming files but I have had longer wait times for my files here than others.

3. Gamecopyworld.com is for people that want to be able to back up their games and play the back-ups after they burn them…I highly recommend visiting it if you’re having trouble playing your burned games
