01. THE NNT BLOG just had its first birthday last month. That's where I make a few comments along the way and ask you to share your opinion as well. There's nothing really deep and we won't resolve the ills of the world, but I'd welcome you to drop in at http://www.neatnettricks.com/blog/ . It gets lonely there without you.

02. ANIMOTO at http://animoto.com/ turns your photos, video clips, and music into unique video pieces.

03. GETFOLDERSIZE allows you to determine the size of folders and sub-folders on your hard drive and determine which programs are taking up your hard disk space. Download free at http://www.getfoldersize.com/en_getfoldersize.htm .

04. SOUNGLE. Search their database, preview the sounds, and download them if you wish, for free, at http://www.soungle.com/ .

I realize that many subscribers to this Standard (free) edition also wisely subscribe to NNT Premium. For those who don't, I'm reminded of a quotation that dates back to 1615, "The proof is in the pudding" (and if you want to know more about that phrase, see http://ask.yahoo.com/20020903.html ). In other words, if you want to know the true value of something, you can only judge it when it's put to use. So, I'd like to invite you to view a recent issue of NNT Premium at http://archive.constantcontact.com/fs065/1101458487892/archive/1103022943988.html . Look it over at your leisure and, if it's something you'd like in your email box twice monthly for just 50 cents an issue, I'd sure welcome your subscription at http://www.neatnettricks.com/store .
