Web Site Of The Day
Yes, there is such a thing as a free lunch. This site offers just what its name suggests, although due to the comparative expense of extremely long downloads the site's creator does offer an option to purchase CD-ROMs of the software offered. There is a wonderful selection of freeware here, along with an impressive news section and a good number of links to similar sites.

Top 100 [undiscovered] Web Sites
CFS isn’t the biggest download site in the park, but it has the distinct advantage of offering free software only. It has files for Windows 3.1, 9x, and Me (even some for – yikes – DOS) and includes utilities, applications, games, graphics, and more. Unlike most download sites, CFS reviews products and provides screen shots, ratings, and update descriptions.

FamilyFirst Featured Site
Anytime you can get something for free, I say go for it. It has long been a saying that there is no free lunch (or breakfast or dinner, I guess). But I have also read that free is a very good price. With the term free in mind, let us venture over to the Famsite today.
It is called Completely Free Software, and comes to us from the land down under, Australia. The site is the work of Graham Pockett, a committed Christian and computer nut. It is a site that is full of wonderful software, and is FREE. It was born, Mr. Pockett writes, out of frustration with sites that advertise free software, and in reality have mostly time limited shareware, and poor quality freeware. This site is designed to correct that by providing good quality, genuinely free software that has been checked and rated - programs that Mr. Pockett uses and ones which you will want to use too.

It's no secret the Web is teeming with free downloads, but why can't someone build a site dedicated to totally free software? That's exactly what CFS is all about. No shareware, no 30-day trial software, just oodles of free stuff for Windows (not Mac, alas). We suggest you clear some space on your hard drive...

The software listed on this site has been hand-picked, tested, reviewed and rated on a scale of one to five ‘golden doves’. Five is the highest honor. Programs are rated on a variety of criteria, with usability being the most important.

Have you fallen for a 'free sofware' pitch, only to find out that the download is free, but you have to pay to keep it? The editor of this ezine was frustrated by the lack of true free software resources and decided to change things.

Completely Free Software caters to those who want good quality, genuinely free software which has been checked and rated. Each program is judged on its usablity, features, ease of use and download size. Programs are rated using a 'golden dove' system, with one dove being the worst and five doves the best.

I am sure you will find some great programs which you can put to use right away. This one is highly recommended!

Cool and Completely Free
Except for browsers, freeware is normally somewhat less than exciting. But the editor of Completely FREE Software, a collection of links to Windows and DOS freeware, offers some very interesting stuff. Let's just say my hard drive has considerably less usable space as I type this review.... You are bound to find something at Completely FREE Software to make the trip worthwhile. My only request to the editor? Keep adding more!

HitBox Weekly Review
(week starting May 31, 1999)

One of the great things about the Internet is the ability to download all kinds of free software. Completely FREE Software plays host to a wide variety of absolutely free downloads of some great software for your computer. You will be able to find freeware in such areas as; games, general applications, desktop utilities, and various multimedia packages. There is a section with news on the latest occurrences on the software front. There's even a search engine to find out if specific items you are looking for are available. It is all set up in a very easy to follow format and is quick loading. I browsed through it, and I am happy to say that the site is well worth the time that you will spend to stop in and see it for yourself.
