Need a cell phone, but already have the service?
One of the maddening things about getting a cell phone is that you must almost always get service with the phone. Computer Geeks has a sale on some popular phones and the best part is, no service is required. The prices are comparable or better to what you can find on Ebay.

Free Time Zone tool for Windows XP
Microsoft has a really spiffy tool for Windows XP called Time Zone. Simply install it, (it needs to be launched the first time), then set your 5 favorite time zones. If you want to see the time in of your preferred locations, click the Time Zone icon in the system tray (notification area) and up pops the time and date in your previously specified locations.
This is really useful for those of us that work with folks in multiple time zones.
