UnFREEz 2.1 - FANTASTIC FREE SIMPLE animator program. Prepare your gif files, drag them into the window in the order you want the animation, click Make Animated GIF and watch, before your very bloody eyes, the creation of a perfect animated gif. I used this in my quest to achieve blinkie making status and succeeded… In coalition with Irfanview and MS Paint it was a complete doddle. Of course, I was helped with a very easy tutorial from Rainbow Scripts who I might add provide more information for the budding webmaster than most sites I have visited and in a language that is easy to understand. Kudos to Rainbow Scripts!

Total Recorder - I’ve had this for years… records music on the fly! That means all these sites that worry about copywrite are protected but you can still download and store your favourite tracks!
