In this issue:

1) 3 Little Computer Utilities I can't do without

2) Free Videos: recent changes at Ebay and how to profit from them
3) The Illustrated Dictionary of Appliance Terms

Next time: Latest Refrigerator and Range Recalls

1) We're venturing a bit off-topic this issue, but if you've been reading for very long, you
know from time to time I like to let you know about computer utilities that I use every day
and that can save you a lot of time and aggravation. 'Wish I could calculate how many
hours just these 3 simple little programs save me every month! 'Hope you enjoy them as
much as I do.

a) The first is one I've told you a few years ago, but it continues to amaze me how much it
streamlines my online life. Especially whenever I use someone another computer that's
without it.

That's RoboForm, just my favorite utility of all time! I use it constantly, all day every day,
and if you spend much time online and never tried it, you're in for a treat!

I spent $29.95 on the pro version many years (and about 5 computers) ago, and keep it on
all my machines. I can't do without it, and you'll feel the same way once you try it, so I wanted
to share it with you.

I no longer have pages of pencil-smudged user ID's and passwords stuffed into a notebook;
they're all (500+!)  'remembered' securely by RoboForm, as well as my name, address, phone
number, etc, all filled into forms in about a second when needed! I just can't recommend this
one highly enough! Try the free trial download at:
http://www.RoboForm.com/?affid=fixit

b) Another handy (and free) bit of code that you'll wonder how you ever got along without is
called 'mouse gestures.' For a while, it wasn't available for Internet Explorer 8, but it's now
up and running. There are more features built in than I'll ever use, but just being able to
'forward' and 'back' my moving the mouse right/left is worth the minute it takes to download
this one. I'm thrilled that they've made it available:  http://www.ieaddons.com/en/details/other/Mouse_Gestures_for_Internet_Explorer/

c) Maybe it's never irritated you, but I always knew there had to be a better way to get a
mouse to scroll inside the window I moved it into without having to click inside the new window
every time. I use multiple monitors and do a LOT of copying/pasting between them, so this one
saves me a time, too.

A free little utility from AntiBody Software called 'WizMouse' makes your mouse work like it
should've from the start. Just move your mouse  into a window, and it'll scroll there without
having to click inside that window. Again, doesn't seem like a big deal until you move back and
forth between multiple windows for an hour or two!

Try it! You'll be mumbling like I do: 'how'd I get along without this?'

2) ** FREE eBay Training Videos **

Earn an income online WITHOUT the hassles of your own website!

If you've been dreaming of starting your own lucrative Internet business, but don't want the headaches that come with starting a website from scratch (like I did - NOT the method I'd recommend!), these *FREE* eBay training videos will show you how!

You'll discover the number one mistake that nearly EVERY new 'eBayer' makes when they're getting started...

... PLUS learn a secret three-step formula for finding HOT products to sell... how to find hungry markets waiting to snap up your products... and many more PROVEN money-making strategies.

To get INSTANT access to all three FREE training videos, just follow this link:

3) I'm nearly done with this new project, and would love your opinion. The text portions are
finished, even though it's a work in progress.

I call it a 'Dictionary of Appliance Terms', and have nearly all of the illustrations added. And
it'll be available as one downloadable pdf file when I get it 'tweaked'. That's where you come
in:

Please let me know what you think when you get a chance. Any ideas you have for
improvements, changes, more ease of use, terms you'd like to see added, etc, are welcome.
Here's what I have so far: Appliance Dictionary

There's been a demand for something like this for 'handy' folks for a while; sort of an abridged
'encyclopedia' of terms used in appliance service every day. I tend to assume that everyone
knows what I'm talking about, but it can get confusing. This project is an attempt to list common
(and not so common) words and phrases used in the profession.

Thanks in advance!

***

Note: I wanted to include a couple of recalls that came out recently and I wanted you to be
aware of, but just haven't had time to get the data together, so that'll have to wait until next
issue. Things are just too crazy around here!

***

Thanks again for inviting me into your inbox. I never take the invitation lightly!

As always, if you have any topics you'd like to see discussed here or covered in an online
article, let me know and I'll do my best to oblige. And don't forget those testimonials! Many
thanks to those of you who've already sent yours in!

May God richly bless you and yours, and may He continue to have mercy on America!

Your Friend,
