Simulate your lottery balls for the next 10 years, then realize you should quit while you're ahead (Download Squad)

Sep 29th 2010 8:19AM For a UK National Lottery sim, check out http://www.whatsthecost.com/lottery.aspx... methinks there are better ways to give to charity!

Paste copied text without formatting in Google Chrome (Download Squad)

Sep 16th 2010 5:24AM More useful surely would be Ctrl + Shift + C allowing you to *copy* unformatted text (although this key combo is already in use).

Copyc.at provides readability statistics for your website (Download Squad)

May 21st 2010 3:36PM Does anyone know of a similar tool that will crawl your whole site & do this? Don't want to submit 50-something URLs separately (and in any event, the results would be a bit meaningless).

What menu items get clicked in Firefox? Copy, paste, and bookmarks. (Download Squad)

Mar 31st 2010 1:25PM yeah - I don't think I've ever used those menu commands! I use "recently closed tabs", "options" and "add-ons", just about exclusively. Everything else is shortcut keys or bookmarks off my bookmarks toolbar.

4 portable app suites to power up your USB flash drive (Download Squad)

Jun 22nd 2009 11:44AM There's also the Scottish JISC's "EduApps" at http://www.rsc-ne-scotland.ac.uk/eduapps/index.php. Interesting feature is that it will build a custom package for you to download & install on a memory stick based on apps you select (called "MyApps"). Tried this myself and it works almost 100% - but a couple of the apps didn't end up on the menu & I had to add them manually. Uses the ASuite system (http://www.salvadorsoftware.com/software/asuite) for the app launcher, pretty straightforward.

Feedmil: a long tail search engine for RSS feeds (Download Squad)

Apr 30th 2009 11:19AM Not that impressed with this - a search for "swine flu" (sans quotes) using the broadest possible range only garnered me 4 hits!!!!
