Someone asked why anyone would pay $12 for 24 issues of Neat Net Tricks Premium 
when you can get the same number of issues free in this NNT Standard edition.  
That's a good question and it deserves an answer.  The Premium (paid) edition 
offers no ads, just pure reading, at least a dozen graphics-enriched tips that 
aren't in the free edition, plus a software tip-of-the-issue, a two-minute 
tekkie tip, other special features, software giveaways, and a full-length 
timely article in every issue.  Not bad for 50 cents a mailing! And, if you 
don't like what you see, you don't pay!  Give it a try at

05.  SPENDSTER.  Sponsored by the nonprofit National Endowment for Financial 
Education, the site at http://spendster.org provides a confessional "safe 
haven" where you can share your story about impulse buying and things you 
should not have bought.  Includes tips for saving money, reducing spending, etc.

06.  THE PASSWORD METER at http://www.passwordmeter.com/ is yet another tool to 
subjectively measure the strength of your password strings.

07.  AUDITORIUM says it's about the process of discovery and play. There are no 
right or wrong answers; there are many ways to solve every puzzle. To get 
started, fill up the first audio level at http://www.playauditorium.com/ .

08.  UNMASK PARASITES.  Just one more thing to worry about, this site at 
http://www.unmaskparasites.com/ cautions:  "Hackers exploit security 
vulnerabilities in popular web software such as blogs, forums, CMS, image 
galleries and wikis to insert hidden illicit content into web pages of innocent 
third-party web sites. Thousands of web site owners are unaware that their 
sites are hacked and infected with parasites."  I was relieved to find it 
reported the NNT Web site is clean.

09.  GOOG-411.  Still another feature from that search engine giant Google, 
dial 1-800-GOOG-411 from any phone, state the location and business type, and 
connect to the business for free.  More details are at 
http://www.google.com/goog411/ .
