I hope by now you've had a chance to read the complimentary issue of Neat Net Tricks Premium sent earlier this week. Some of you, of course, already subscribe to the Premium as well as this Standard edition; but, if this was your first glimpse of the expanded version, I would certainly welcome your comments. If you believe the no-ads, full graphics, twice- monthly offering of a dozen or more tips, mini-reviews, interesting Web sites, tekkie tips, and full- length features are worth a piddly 50 cents per issue, then why not subscribe now at the NNT Store, http://www.neatnettricks.com/store ? There's no risk: if future issues don't meet or exceed the content you saw in the freebie, just say the word for a full refund, no questions asked!

01. LOCKCRYPT is an account management program that provides a secure, central database to store difficult to remember passwords and other personal information. It includes a password generator, native translations into several languages, a mobile version, export features, easy-to-use drag and drop interface, and more. Download free at http://www.lockcrypt.com/ .

02. SCOOLSOFT BOOKMARK CONVERTER has an interface similar to Windows Explorer so you can better manage bookmarks in all the popular browser formats, automatically filtering out illegal characters, converting all or part of the bookmarks between browsers, and easily adding, editing or deleting bookmarks. Download free at http://www.scoolsoft.com/ .

03. JING at http://www.techsmith.com/jing/ lets you take a picture or make a video of what you see on your computer monitor, then share it via Web, email, IM, Twitter, or your blog.

04. TRASHMAIL. Disposable email addresses are always handy to prevent exposing your real address when posting in a public place. Just give your real address at https://ssl.trashmail.net/ and the number of times you want mail forwarded to you using the generated disposable address. When that limit is reached, the address is gone forever.

If I found myself on a desert island but somehow had a computer with an Internet connection, and if I could only download three or four software programs, one of them would be WinPatrol PLUS. If you missed the special report a few days ago, find out why I think so highly of WinPatrol. Click here: http://archive.constantcontact.com/fs065/1101458487892/archive/1104753267707.html .

05. WINYL is a lightweight audio player. Of course it plays your music, but also creates playlists, sets ratings of favorite songs, automatically organizes content, and is very light on resources. Download free at http://vinylsoft.com/ .

06. STALLED PRINTER REPAIR. When all else fails to unclog your jammed printer, try this application. Download free at http://www.fantasticfreeware.com/applications/stalled-printer-repair/ .

07. RED NOTEBOOK is a modern journal that features calendar navigation, customizable templates, export functionality and word clouds. You can also format, tag and search your entries. It includes spell check, bold/italic/underlined format, lets you insert images, files, and links, translates in 20+ languages, and more. Download free at http://rednotebook.sourceforge.net/ .

08. DESK DRIVE automatically adds a desktop icon pointing to a USB thumb drive or DVD whenever that media is inserted. It disappears when the media is removed. Thus, you no longer have to open Windows Explorer to navigate to the drive. Download free at http://blueonionsoftware.com/deskdrive.aspx .
