Here's an easy way to create a professional looking personal web site in seconds. These clever people have created a system that pulls the information from your LinkedIn account and builds a classy site.

Your well-designed welcome page and the included standard tabs pull your LinkedIn experience, education, skills and testimonials right in - in an instant. Then, once you've looked over the site in all its beauty, you can fancy it up by adding custom tabs covering topics of your choice. Just make up the headlines you wish to highlight and fill in each with the narrative and information of your choice.

For example, let's say you are in the job market - add in the characteristics you feel potential employers are looking for. Or, if you offer a dog walking service - expand with your puppy skills information.

Just let your imagination run wild. Works best in Chrome or FireFox -- a little buggy in IE and even though they offer a low cost "Pro" plan, the basic service is very good - and the cost is right. There is none.

How often do you say, "I knew that."? Are you good at predicting future events? If so you'll probably enjoy this one.

This place tests your knowledge of political and financial events by letting you make and trade predictions. The folks at Victoria University of Wellington created this project to research the potential value of understanding the future.

Normally we review services that don't cost and here you can have fun by checking to see what others are predicting. But to get "in on the action" you will need to deposit ten dollars -- which you then can then use in increments as small as one cent to back up your hunch.

Although the fun of this place isn't necessarily based on money, if you are somewhat clairvoyant you could end up paying for dinner. -- and enjoy the thrill of victory -- or the agony of defeat!
