In honor of the 10th Anniversary of International Talk Like a Pirate Day, here is the commemorative version of my Pirate-Talk Tech-Tools page, which has survived (now evolved!) over the past decade.    The page was originally designed to help corporate coworkers hastily prepare for September 19 meetings and interactions.  Complete details on the official site http://www.talklikeapirate.com.  

Pirate-Talk Tech-Tools 

1) Get a Pirate Name:
  • The http://www.piratequiz.com/ is a little more time consuming, but worth the effort if you are interested in a custom-fit name!   Also generates sharable html code for website similar to box below (mangled by Google Site editor!):

    My pirate name is:
    Mad Tom Flint

    Every pirate is a little bit crazy. You, though, are more than just a little bit. Like the rock flint, you're hard and sharp. But, also like flint, you're easily chipped, and sparky. Arr!

    Get your own pirate name from piratequiz.com.
    part of the fidius.org network
2) Thar be an APP fer that!
        (Android apps still seem pretty sparse but there are a few).     

3) Theme your Profile, Browser, Start Page, etc
        (Chrome themes/extensions ALSO amazingly difficult to find!)

4) Socialize
5)  Surfing Assistance
6)  Visit the official Site - http://www.talklikeapirate.com/piratehome.html 


Thats it, updated in 2012!  Hope it helps, have phun!
