Gallimaufry is intended to be a weekly cyber-newsletter, distributed free of charge to its subscribers. Each week Gallimaufry will provide:
* One recommendation for you to obtain excellent and eminently useful, free software from the Internet, along with some basic information about what the software does and how to use it; i.e., really good, downloadable, highly utilitarian software that does not require money from you (freeware).
* One recommendation for a pretty good, free download that is either frivolous or less useful.
* One recommendation for a really cool and free Web service, explaining what it does and how to use it.
* One recommendation for a really entertaining web site (humor, games, puzzles, comics, weirdness, what have you).
* One good joke, humorous anecdote, riddle, or puzzle.
* One profound quote and one really funny quote
* One useful term, along with its meaning and proper pronunciation.
* One bit of English language trivia (e.g., misused words, etymology, etc.)
* One bit of otherwise educational trivia (e.g., science, history, geography)
The idea, here, is to have a weekly newsletter that people will generally enjoy and, hopefully, find somewhat useful to obtain information about software and the Internet, and that will not require one to spend money to get the most out of it. Thus, none of the software or web sites recommended will require payment for their use (some free software and web services may offer added features at a nominal price, but all will be eminently useful as free versions).
