Free and Fun Utilities
Miscellaneous free utilities to pass the time...
If you are in need of a little relaxation or time out, we have some utilities that might keep you amused.
All of these were originally written as a part of larger projects or as a "proof of concept", and are included here in the hope that you might find them useful!
Want to figure out who is calling, or where a caller is based? Type in a telephone number (or just the first part of it) and our area code translator will tell you the exact town, city, or area of the UK that the number originates from. [try it]
Want to know what the weather is like right now in Barcelona? Or perhaps you need to know what it is like right outside your door without getting up from your seat. This is weather reporting with a difference. Our weather reporter uses information translated directly from data broadcasts from airports worldwide. The data is updated regularly (normally at least once per hour) and is used by aviators and weather forecasters all over the globe. [try it]
Ever wondered what day of the week a famous person was born, or what day a famous battle started? Ever pondered over what day your birthday or Christmas Day will fall on in twenty years time? Or do you fancy just printing out a calendar for any year for free! You can with our little calendar generator. [try it]
Ever wondered just how far it is between two places as the crow flies (or any other bird)? Just tap in two UK postcodes, or select two places, and see just how far it really is. Now compare that distance with an on-line journey planner or your GPS satellite navigation system and see just how out of the way you are going! [try it]
