Useful links and hints


*** This is now quite old therefore links may not work and things have changed. If you are having any issues and/or have suggestions please message FedEx or post it on the cork. Someday I'll update this page to Win10 ***

If anyone has other FREE programs that work good and you would like to share them with others, please msg me, FedEx, and I will see about adding them to the list.

Visitor mailroom HERE

This is the home page of #r-vids and you have the permission of the room owner, FedEx, to link this home page if you so desire. I have no problem sharing anything I know with anyone that is a member here.

Also, please be aware that the only room links in #r-vids that are not mine are of those that have been staunch supporters and contributors to #r-vids over the years. Sorry, but I'm picky. Ya just gotta be special. Those linked in #r-vids have helped to make vids the popular place that it is today... and for that, I thank you!
