I was surprised at the length of the list, but you have to wonder, how long is that free offer for 300Mb of drive space going to last, or do they suck every bit of personal data they can out of you?

Free doesn't last forever.

Great list, and mighty useful. Only one complaint:
Prominently absent from the "Phone Service" list, the damn-near-indispensable Ureach.

By the way, anyone else notice any glaring exceptions? We could turn this thread into "Free Schwag Central".

Bleah. They named Books-On-Line as "the best place to find texts." I think they swipe most of their information from The University of Pennsylvania's On-Line Books Page.

There aren't many links there, and they missed the most important categories of all! FREE DOMAIN HOSTING AND EMAIL FORWARDING, NO ADVERTISEMENTS

By the way, if anyone knows of any other company that offers the same, could they let me know? Portland is a bit slow...

I've found Doteasy to be a reliable, albeit bare-bones free host. They say they make their money by sending out a daily newsletter, but at this point, it's closer to a monthly newsletter.

I'm thinking they're not going to be around long.

The best place for online texts is Gnutella.
