Favorite Software including smart phone apps and useful web sites

They are not chosen for their general appeal but rather the sites I want to find when I am logging in from someone else's computer and do not have my own list of Favorites to draw on.   It also includes links to some programs that look interesting.  If I have not actually tried them, I usually note that.

LibreOffice (Replaces OpenOffice):  A free substitute for Microsoft Office.  Click HERE for detailed info. If you are not a heavy user of Office, it is a good substitute.  The only big nuisance is you have to change the default format to match what Office uses.  My notes explain how.

Urban Legends  (Every time I get an urban legend masquerading as truth, I respond, usually with info from one of these sites.  This occurs more than once a month.)
