Computerize Your Assets, by Custom Apps, Inc.is a neat program that helps you keep track of all the things you own.Just looking at the program made me stop and think. If there was a catastrophic event like a fire, how could I prove what was destroyed? I probably couldn't and it's my guess that most people couldn't. That's where Computerize Your Assets comes in. It gives you a perfect way to inventory and catalog the things you own. The things you'd like replaced if they were destroyed.

Computerize Your Assets makes it possible to have an unlimited number of locations and categories. I liked the fact that I could name the categories the way I wanted them. In testing it out I created categories like "Doc's Computers", "Carol's Sewing", and the like. The program has a powerful search feature which really comes in handy if you're looking for something. You can scan in documents like appliance registrations, warranties, insurance papers, and so on. You can even import video and graphics and look at them right in the program. Now that's slick!

Computerize Your Assets is a complete package for documenting all the things you own. Do everything in every room and included serial numbers, descriptions, pictures, and more. The program is easy-to-use and has an intuitive user interface. That makes it perfect for users with all levels of experience. If a "home inventory" is something you've been meaning to do, don't put it off any longer. Give this program a try and see how easy it can be to document all your belongings. Very nicely done!


e-Campaign, by LmhSoftis a cool tool for doing bulk email. You can use the program for things like an email newsletter or a bulk emailing to clients. It has lots of great features including the ability to do HTML in a "What You See Is What You Get" (WSYIWYG) format. At the same time you can also do your mailings in plain text. e-Campaign has an SMTP server built right in,which is handy.

e-Campaign also has mail merge which is a feature not found in some similar programs. It also allows you to personalize each message and that's a nice feature. Another cool feature is the fact that the program will handles "bounces" as well as handling any requests to"unsubscribe." In testing it out I found the program to be very fast and accurate. It's also very easy-to-use and it's perfect for both new and experienced users.

e-Campaign lets you schedule mailing jobs so you don't have to be present, lets you include images in HTML emails, and supports secure,SSL connections. This is a well-rounded and full-featured bulk email program. So, if that's what you're looking for, this may be just the product for you. Take the time to see for yourself.


MaxType LITE Typing Tutor, by AskMeSoftis a typing tutor for the Windows operating system and it's free!It offers a couple of different "modes" to help really develop your typing skills. The Typing Test mode gives an evaluation of your typing while the Extreme Typing mode aims towards increasing your typing speed. I found the program to be easy-to-use and very intuitive,so it's perfect for all users.

MaxType LITE Typing Tutor supports not only QWERTY keyboard, but also the Dvorak, Azerty, and Russian keyboard layouts. It further shows it's flexibility by calculating your speed in characters per second(CPS), words per minute (WPM), and characters per minute (CPM). Another feature tells you the speed for each hand. Wow, that's impressive and a feature I've not seen in similar products. I also liked the fact that the program provides you with reports, statistical data that can help you to be a better typist. I could easily see this program being used in schools.

MaxType LITE Typing Tutor is a very nice typing tutor program with a wide range of excellent features. It not only helps you learn how to type, but tells you how you can come to type better. It teaches you and teaches you to improve as well. I like that. So, if you'd like to learn to type or learn how to type better, take a good,long look at MaxType LITE Typing Tutor. I recommend it!

System Mechanic has a range of different "tools" or options you can choose from. And these are things that nearly all of us need at some point. Like "Find and fix broken shortcuts", or "Find and remove duplicate files". These tasks help keep things running the way you want.At the same time, the program can clean up your Windows Registry or let you customize many of the settings in Windows. Another feature that's really in demand is helping to protect your privacy. That's right,System Mechanic can do that too. You can have it delete, or manage, the infamous "cookies", erase your Web history, delete the Internet Explorer cache, and it can even delete your recent documents history. And there's lots more. A very slick feature is the ability to schedule the maintenance you want done on a routine basis! Have System Mechanic routinely get rid of junk files, broken shortcuts -- whatever youwant! Excellent!
