Trick #1: Send Your Faxes Free

Getting tired of trudging over to the old machine to send a fax? Stuck in a hotel and too tired to run down to the business center to get a fax out? Angry when you see the cost on your hotel bill - or your online fax service? The solution is right on the web where these nice folks allow you to send a fax from your computer to any place in the US or Canada. PC Magazine reviews this neat service and says "forget tying up your phone line and use a free Internet fax service instead... ".

No need to register -- just go right in and send up to three pages or one attachment. And the price is right - zero.

Trick #2: What Time is it in Manawatu-Wanganui?

Want to be sure that you don't roll a valuable client or friend out of bed at 3 in the morning with your friendly voice? This handy helper gives you an easy way to compare past, current and future times and arrange calls and meetings across time zones.

You can compare time differences for up to 5 places and to accommodate reasonable timing with one click you can determine the ideal time for a conference call across the 5 time zones.

No more juggling schedules to keep everyone happy. This one is easy.

Great Place #1: Check That Charity's Financial Health

At holiday time (or any time for that matter) ever wonder about a charity you are considering supporting -- and how responsible and effective it is in handling your contributions? Last year more than four million donors used this great place to answer that question and TIME Magazine called it "One of America's 50 Coolest Websites"

This easy to navigate service provides a rating system that examines the effectiveness of over 5,000 charities and applies a rating ranging from zero to four stars. In addition you will find lots of valuable information and tips to help you with your altruistic efforts.

Neat service for neat folks.

Great Place #2: Find People Info Fast and Easy

Looking for your old buddy in the Navy? How about a long lost classmate, neighbor, business associate or friend? This great place provides lots of information about the object of your search including public record data, work history, education, social networking information, address, family, photos, public phone number, email, news and blog entries.

The good news is that this great search service is free and you do not have to create an account or log in to use it. The bad news is that much of the data is provided by Intelius and when you really need some of the good stuff you'll need to get out your wallet. Allowing for the fact that these folks need to feed their children, this great place is a vast source of intriguing information. They should call this great place the Google for people (with an occasional surcharge).
