This month's fr-eeee software offer
With each edition we will try to bring you a useful software program you don't have to pay for... just as we did in previous months. Some are direct from Rose City and some are great toys and tools we have discovered elsewhere that we think you will like!

This month, we have a handy freeware tool called KeepVid, actually a free website which enables you to download any video from YouTube or Google and save it to your hardrive. We all see videos on these sites we'd like to save to our harddrive, but the sites don't make it easy.

With KeepVid, it is effortless. Just copy the YouTube or Google URL from the address bar of your browser and paste it into box at and click 'Download'.

Then on the next page, as it explains, just Right-click the download link, choose 'Save Target As...', and rename file to get_video.flv... or [your_name_for_the_video].FLV. In other words, the file downloads as an unassociated file... you need to add the .FLV extension to be able to open it.

You'll also need an FLV player, another free tool written by and you can get it for free from

You download and install the free FLV Player and then you will be able to play the videos you download through

Start saving those cool videos that you really like to watch them any time anywhere.

And for lots of other cool free tools please check our website.

But first, read on for some other great software specials and tips...

DiskMagik is an intelligently designed utility to defragment the hard drive of a Windows PC. Compatible with Windows 2000/XP/Vista, DiskMagik has several powerful features not included in the Windows defrag utility including the ability to rearrange and reprioritize the order of files on the disk, permitting faster file access on demand.
