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.

How To make your own mobile phone themes with Ownskin

Here's a good website if you want to personalize your phone. Ownskin.
Use their online program to make an entire theme for your phone.
You can use your business images, pics of the dog, racing cars etc.
You can alter the color of all the text, battery and signal bars, etc.


Here's what it looks like.

I have used this to make a few Star Wars and Matrix themes to stick on my old Nokia 5500.
The end result is a .sis file that I transfer to my Nokia using Nokia PC Suite.

Here's another theme. Note the icons, signal strength bars and panel colors.

It's easy enough and good fun.

Cheers. Si.
