Revo Uninstaller

I’ve been using the free Revo Uninstaller for awhile now, and if you’re not familiar with it, you really should take a couple of minutes to check it out.

What’s kewl about this program is that, unlike your typical uninstall program, this scans your system again after it has removed the specified program. Then it flags the bits and pieces that were left behind in your files, folders and registry keys, giving you the option to remove those too.

The program is light, plays well with everything else on my system, and there was virtually no learning curve. I think you’ll be impressed.

Stop Unwanted Catalogs with Catalog Choice

Last fall I made several online purchases through RedCat companies like Chadwicks, MetroStyle and Brylane Home.

Approx. 3 weeks later the catalogs started trickling in. Then they began pouring in. By spring the mailbox was flooded.

I understand the importance of advertising, but some of these companies were mailing catalogs two and three times a week, which really is overkill considering that the same merchandise is available online.

So I registered with Catalog Choice and supplied them with each catalog’s name, the customer number off each label, and the reason I was opting out. That’s all there was to it.

It took about 8 weeks before I saw a significant decline in the number of catalogs I was receiving. The flood’s back down to a trickle.

Now I’m happy, my mail carrier is happy, and somewhere…..a tree is happy.

Free Birthday Reminder Service

Since they have about 50 million members, I suspect a lot of you already now about But if I can save just one poor soul from forgetting an anniversary or birthday, well then it’s worth the post.

Registration is free and there’s no learning curve. Just enter your important dates, and about a week before the event, BirthdayAlarm will send you an e-mail reminder……for free!

There’s an easy to use chart to enter names and birth dates, in addition to a section for event reminders, like anniversaries. There’s even a calendar that populates itself with the information you’ve entered, so you can see a whole month at a glance. And your free membership gives you access to over 100 free birthday e-cards.

After all that underlining, if you’re still determined to spend money, you can also buy individual premium e-cards for any occasion, or send unlimited cards for an entire year for just $13.95.
