Anyone ever tell you they didn’t get your e-mail? Ever have a time when it was really important for you to know that your email got through and was read? If so then here’s a great trick for you.

Now you can secretively find out when your e-mail was read and where they were when they read it by simply typing a few letters after the recipient’s e-address when you send your message. Moments after the addressee opens your message you will receive a confirmation showing the exact

date and time that the message was opened with other confirmation information plus a map showing where the recipient was when opening your message. And the recipient will never know!

Scary stuff -- but if you are so inclined you can track up to 10 messages a month on the house. Premium services are available for a modest monthly fee.

It happens to the best of us. We need to get a file to a friend or associate in a hurry but it’s too big to e-mail because our internet service provider blocks big files. Where to turn?

There are a lot of options and this one may be the easiest to use. Just type in your message and upload any file up to 100MB. Your recipient will receive an e-mail just about instantly with a link to the file -- ready to download.

No registration required – and you can use their free service to send files up to 100MB in size without any cost. This will usually satisfy the casual user but these nice folks have other services for power users that will accommodate files of up to 2 GB with all sorts of bells and whistles – all for a modest monthly fee.

Some like to walk - some like to sit – and some like to ride. For those who like to walk, this great place will rate your neighborhood for “walkability”.

They calculate the walkability for your address by locating nearby stores, restaurants, schools, parks, etc. and presenting them on a map around your house. Then they score the walkability of your house’s location on a scale of 0-100 with 90-100 being a “Walkers' Paradise” where errands and entertainment can be accomplished on foot and you could get by without owning a car. 0-25 is a “Driving Only” location where virtually no neighborhood destinations are within walking range.

Perhaps if you really like to walk very loooong distances you could go for a “0” – or you could get your exercise walking to your car!
