Bloom

No votes yet

Learning to read takes books. Learning to read well, and developing a love of reading, takes lots of books.  Books at all different skill levels. But how are low-literacy language communities ever to get all those books in their language?  They can do it with Bloom.

Bloom uses collections of "shell books" that come with multiple source languages. Read the ones you understand, type in a translation in your language, and you're done!

Search Everything

No votes yet

Search Everything is a great little utility for finding files on your computer. It only indexes the file's name. So the indexing is really quick and unnoticeable. I find it useful several times a day. Even if I know where a file is Search Everything will often get to it quicker than using Windows Explorer.
