    Thank you for the link to
    TinyURL! It was not available when I initially downloaded the new version and had been missing it!

    Some of my favorites:

    Web developer tool. If you see a color you like it will provide RGB as well as HTML.

    HTML Validator:
    Clean up your pages with this tool. It will show you errors and warnings for every page you visit..yours included.
    MTS: 1 error and 50 warnings.
    Yet it renders beautifully…

    When it comes to FF everyone raves about extensions. What about their great themes??

    Little FireFox
    Optimize your screen with this tiny browser interface.

    Congrats on getting your client’s notebook drive fixed.

    I’ve got a suggestion for a far better disk repair/recovery than Window’s ancient and often non-working chkdsk.

    Spinrite will do far more to keep your drives healthy and recover data when they crash.


    No, I’m not associated with grc, just a happy user.

    tangerine – ColorZilla is awesome. This is exactly what I needed to help me finish coloring my new site. Thank You! I will check the the error and warnings from my page.

  5. Mike says:

    Ron – Excellet idea about SpinRite. I use to use that many years ago to fix MFM and RLL drives. I have never used the latest version, I will check it out. I do listen to Steve’s “Security Now” podcast.

  6. Tangerine says:

    Looking forward to the new layout AND colours!

    Glad I could help.
