HTML Character Code Lookup

So picture this, you are focused working on <insert thing you are working on> that must get done within the hour.  The last part of your project requires that you have a “©” inserted in the document.  You hop on google and start searching for alt codes and html codes.  You find a ginormous table of html codes and start sifting through the table only to find that for some reason this huge table of characters is somehow missing the one character that you need!

Have no fear, I found this nifty little app that will save the day.

This app lets you search through characters.  If the character you are looking for contains or looks like a “c” just enter “c” in the search field and it will give you a list of all relevant entries.  Nifty Eh?

Easy way to Manage your Money

Mint.comAbout a year ago I stumbled upon an awesome site that helps me know, at any given time, where I stand financially.

We download and categorize your balances and transactions automatically every day— making it effortless to see graphs of your spending, income, balances, and net worth.

After creating an account on Mint.com, you can go through and add your credit card accounts, checking accounts, savings accounts, stock and investment accounts, certificate of deposit accounts, mortgage accounts and pretty much any type of account. Add your house and cars to calculate your estimated net worth. Set a monthly budget. Get alerts based on that budget via text message or email. View your accounts on the road via the handy IPhone app.

I’ve found Mint.com to be an amazingly easy and powerful financial tool.  Give it a try and let me know your thoughts.
