    Conversion Tool - nice looking tool, maybe not so usefull however nicely done.

    Peggd is an interesting concept. However i think squidoo achieved almost everything in this area.

    Cheers.

      IMO, those two server a different purpose. Squidoo is to create thorough information/reference pages. Peggd on the other hand is for someone who needs to quickly post something online (possibly share soemthing with a bunch of people).

    No, the SI system ("Le Système International") is the same as the Metric system; the US System ("American System") is used in the United States. Many British people still use the Imperial System of measure, however.
