8) Question of the Month about Technical Training:
Each month Jeff Love will answer a current or important question that we have received about computer and IT training and career development.
April 2004 Question of the Month:
Where is a good free software site where I can download programs having no time limits or functionality limitations?
For totally free software go to Under1mb Freeware at http://www.under1mb.com/. All software on this site is free and under 1 megabyte in size.
Another, even better free software site is Snapfiles at http://www.snapfiles.com/freeware/freeware.html.
You can also try out Nonags at http://www.nonags.com, where you can download some of their software for free, but for much of it you need be a paying member.
I hope this helps you.
