    Hey! Thanks for the tip on the free tools. I especially like the Free digital image optimizer.. PNG files can really weigh down a website and a lot of the FREE programs I have tried using, are command line-based and can be combersome.

    Also as a side note I just wanted to say that I found your site to be cool and a very interesting concept. I have added it to our resource directory. You can find it at the following link: the-savvy-woman.com/resources-directory/education-resources.html

    Once again Thanks!
