Since it has been a few weeks since the Web Wednesday installment, I thought now might be a good time to share with you some of my favourite web finds lately…
- Alarm Clock 2 – This simple app allows Mac users to use an alarm / stopwatch / timer on your machine. I find this to be useful when giving myself some time reminders while working on the computer, as it’s easy to lose of track time when you’re busy writing/blogging/surfing the web/researching. Handy too, if you want to set yourself a time limit for certain tasks (Set a timer for when you’re allowed to go on Facebook or Twitter, perhaps? Eeps.).
- The Hit List – I’ve always been a fan of GTD-type applications. I like making lists. I know it’s useful to have a good organiser. I’ve tried several already, but I can’t seem to stick to one system for some reason. My latest attempt at organising my To Dos and such is The Hit List. I’m really loving it so far. But, we’ll see if I love it enough to pay the $49.95 licensing fee to keep it.
- Aeon Timeline – If you’re trying to sort out some kind of timeline for genealogy, your writing, or any other possible project, this free app might suit you. It’s still currently in beta and available for free.
- 10 Most Common Science Questions – and their Answers! – Why is the sky blue? Where do babies come from? If you wish to find out some of the answers to these perennial science-related questions, this article might be of interest to you.
- Rules for Good Handwriting – Do you think yours will be up to par?
- GameGoo – Some fun, educational games on the web for kids.
- Many Thanks (Free Card Design Printable) – A free cool-looking printable thank you card from Susan Connor.
- Ovi Services by Nokia – If you have a Nokia phone, then you might want to take a look at this site. Lots of cool apps that work with your phone.
- Themes Junction – A repository of free WordPress themes.
And, since you know that I’m currently working with Nurse Uncut, I thought I’d bring your attention to some NU stuff again…
- Contest: Imagine a World Without Nurses – Aussies get a chance to win a $2,100 getaway. Just send some of your creative ideas on or before 16th of October.

May you enjoy your web travels!
