With the exception of most military vessels, which are mostly excluded for obvious security reasons, here's an easy way to check a goodly percentage of the ships (and boats) at sea at any particular time.

This intriguing on-line program tracks ocean liners, cargo ships, tankers, freighters, pleasure craft pus many more vessel types. It shows you moving, anchored and docked ships. It gives you detailed ship information including photographs. You are privy to detailed voyage information - including route history, destination and estimated time of arrival at the destination.

You can recreate and plot journeys on dates you select with a feature called "Playback". Using filters you can select only the ship types you wish to track. You can search for specific ships by name and even watch the progress of ships on Google Earth using their "Sail Me" simulator. And they even have a flight simulator showing you just about every flight in the sky -- in real time.

Pretty useful and fun site -- particularly considering it's on the house with no ads.

We'll bet that you have a few (or many) programs that are clogging up your computer and gathering dust from lack of use. Many folks never get rid of these because it's often to much a hassle to head all the way to the Control panel, locate "Uninstall Programs", wait for the selection page to populate, find the program and execute the uninstall.

The folks at this great place give you a program that adds an "Uninstall" option to the Windows context menu (Drop down) so you can remove programs right from their shortcuts. Simply right click on the program's shortcut and select uninstall from the dropdown menu. It's as easy as that.

And what makes these folks even nicer is they give you this great one trick pony without any cost to you.
