Convert any file type to any other file type... for FREE
This web site looks immensely useful...
It promises to convert any file type to any other file type, for free!
That means image formats (gif, jpg, png, etc.), document formats (doc, html, pdf, etc.), audio formats (mp3, wav, wma, etc.), and video formats (mov, mp4, mpg, etc.)....
Files can be up to 100 MB. You need to enter your email address, and it emails you the download link once the conversion is done, to your email address.
(By the way, I tested it out - one on a music video - converted from flv to avi format, and another on a PDF document - converted from pdf to html format - and they both worked great!)
If you use it, please let us know how it works for you!

Re: Worked great
My business (promotional advertising) relies heavily on having camera-ready art in acceptable format for any of the 3800+ suppliers we use from one order to the next.
I just uploaded a .jpg file and received the email with download link in less than 15 seconds. The PostScript file worked perfectly.
The normal charge for a one-color graphic conversion is anywhere from $10 to $35 and required 8 hours to 2 days for turn-around.
Thanks for the link Dien.
THANK you Dien. Another great tool. I tried it and I like it. What does ANY one else
I use FREE stuff, like pdf995 (but I did buy the big ticket) and PageBreeze and sometimes Open Office.
What are some other great tools, free, low cost or WORTH the price that you use to make life easier?
Re: THANK you Dien. Another great tool. I tried it and I like it. What does ANY one e

On a different subject and a rant. Watch out if you
use Paypal. I had read about this happening and thought
it could never happen to me. Iím just a small time Internet
marketer why would they mess with me. Well here is
You would not believe this. This morning I got an email from Paypal that my account was limited. Meaning I was out of business. No charges, withdrawals, orders could go through Paypal. And no notice from Paypal, they just shut it down. Could not get any info by phone was told I would have to do it by email and they would get back to me in 24 hours. That would mean I was out of business for at least 24 hours. They said I broke their TOS agreement. Which I did not. Any way luckly they got back to me quickly ( After many phone calls and emails) and here is their answer. You'll notice they do not say what the reason was for them shutting me down. (I still donít know and canít get the answer, YET). They just did it.
Here is their answer:

Unless you are a real pusher if this happens to you be ready to be out of business for up to six months. That's right six MONTHS. And you won't be able to get a reason. They just do it.
So much for my rant. Back to work now that I am back in business.
Best of success,

I tried "MelissaData" for "Newcomer Names" with a "Welcome" program I started and I discovered the names i got from Melissa Data were 6 to 9 mos old. Too old for my clients to benefit from.
Thanks Gordon for asking...
and Thanks Skip too for sharing those cool sites!
It beats every other free email in my opinion!
I also use Google Documents http://docs.google.com
I use more than one computer - and creating little personal documents (eg. "To do" lists, lists of ideas, other notes to myself) on Google Documents, I can access them easily from any computer (that's on the internet)...
Another one I started using recently that I really love is Gliffy http://www.gliffy.com . This is a web site where you can create flowcharts... I flowchart a lotta stuff nowadays (it helps me to organize things), so I find this site useful and use it almost every day!
(I think you could also use it for "mindmapping" if you wanted to - but I haven't tried that yet...)
If anything else comes to mind I'll post it...
40 million downloads Can't be wrong...
