Free Language Practice Application (for XP)
I just remembered that several months ago I took my computers dictionary database and made a desktop application to help me practice my Portuguese. It's very simple and fun to play around with.
Here's the link to my Language App. Basically it scrolls words on your desktop with a nice chalk-board background that can be changed to different background pictures. You can watch it, you can leave it in the back ground while you browse, or you can even put it in big letters and read it from across the room while your girlfriend or boss tries to tell you something they think is important.
It's called a widget and is run from an application called Yahoo Widgets which is a great free product for creating free desktop 'mini' applications.
In order for it to run, you'll first have to download the Engine(yahoo application) but it's really worth it.
