I love gHacks, splendid articles always, but often so often either hard to find links, either no links at all. Is it not possible to have a clearly identified notice at the end of the article, such as :
Website homepage : xxx
I spend minutes searching for those links, in fact I’ve quit searching, I just Google. Why not state things clearly ?
Sorry for that, looked up the link: http://www.toolwiz.com/
