This is my site for links to Genuine Free Stuff as well as some useful advice. I use most of these programs regularly. It's good gear. It's all worth having.

** April 2014. Major revamp and update for relevance happening, especially now that support for Windows XP has ended, and now that we all are addicted to our Android phones. A lot of old stuff is going.

This post in particular started this whole website...

I have been building and using computers since about the Ice Age, from DOS 3 through to Windows 7.
I have been mucking about with mobile phones for quite some time, using Symbian S60 and then Android.

Press F8 at boot to start in safe mode - Windows XP and 7
To see the details of you computer, download, install and run 'Speccy' - shows Operating System, Firewall, Anti-virus and hardware.
If you think you have a virus, start here 'Free Online Virus Scan'. Try any or all, and be patient.

Website Development and SEO - Google

This post is a summary of software and websites I have found in use in developing my simple blogs. I trust you will find something useful. Si.

  AddThis - share buttons - like the ones at the bottom of this post.
AddThis offers you website tools, advertising solutions and massive data.

Create your own website or web log. Free and easy.
In case it isn't obvious, this site is down on
(Tip of the hat to Matthew Kneale for showing me how.)
I had this site up and running in about 5 minutes and only a few clicks to do it.
Start your own if you have something to say.

 Google Webmasters

"You want to be found on the web. We want to help.
Get data, tools and diagnostics for a healthy, Google-friendly site..

  Google Web Designer

This lets you bring ideas to life across screens.
You can create engaging, interactive HTML5-based designs and motion graphics that can run on any device - computers and phones.

Google Adsense

"Google AdSense is a fast and easy way for website publishers of all sizes to display relevant, unobtrusive Google ads on their website's content pages and earn money.
Because the ads are related to what your users are looking for on your site, you'll finally have a way to both monetize and enhance your content pages."

This is worth having a look at if you run a Blog.
Check out the Google ads on my sites. It doesn't pay a lot for me because I don't have that much traffic, but hopefully it will grow in time. I just have to find that one unique idea to rope you all in.

 Google Analytics

 Google Developers
and here you will find ...

  Google Developers Page Speed Tools

 The Chromium Blog

Cheers. Si.
