The UHconverter seems a competitor of the Toolbox Helper, I can't test it because I can't understand the Japanese. I hope to see that tool translated in English soon (also if it was developed with another basic environment). Also the http://rinbrand.hoops.jp/ site seems very interesting (great examples) and I like very much the logo. I don't know if they asked the permission to register the futurebasic.net domain, it sounds weird to use a trademark as domain name without any right to use it. Of course a domain like that needs a translation in English, also if I know (for my experience) that it's very hard to maintain a bi-language site. Anyway, in my opinion, the FB's community needs more sites and more tools like this. Michele.
