Random Free Hosting Site

We'd like to congratulate Hotel Garza for being the winner of this month's free hosting site. At the beginning of each month we will call up our own site's homepage. Whomever's site is the featured site when the page loads will get FREE hosting of one domain for one month. It's just our way of saying thank you.

My Bone Yard

It's part of the modern dilemma: What do you do with that old cell phone or outdated computer? Instead of throwing them into the trash, send them to MyBoneYard. They are a licensed electronics recycler and guarantee to strip and permanently delete all personal information from your recycled product. It couldn't be easier. Just register each product on their site and print a prepaid shipping label - THEY PAY THE SHIPPING - for each item, then pack it up and send it off. When they receive your device, they inspect it and will even pay you for some devices. The reward amount is added to a Visa debit card and sent to you.

So don't screw up the environment, send it to MyBoneYard instead.

AVG Free

For those of you using the highly recommended AVG Free anti-virus program, you may have noticed warnings that the current version (v7.5) will expire about 25 Jun 08. There is a new free version (v8.0) but, as always, AVG makes it almost impossible to end up at the free version's download site. If you're not careful, you'll end up at the paid version of AVG and have to pay for a program that is free if you know where to look.
 
Click HEREto get to the download page for the free version. Then DON'T click on the blue button that says, "Download AVG Free 8.0" because you'll end up at a German company (pretty sneaky AVG). Instead, click on the text link below the button that says, "Download AVG Free 8.0 (AVG Server). At this site you'll receive instructions in English, which is way, way, 'gooder' than in German.
 
For those of you still paying for anti-virus protection (Norton, Symantec, et Al.), you may want to consider "getting off the paid train" and install AVG Free. We've used it (exclusively) on our office machines for over 5 years and love it.
