I know how much people love free stuff.. especially on this site...
Well for all you 3D artists or people who just muck around with The Gimp, you might like this
3D studio 1.0 for FREE
also there are some Base programs on there for free aswell.. these programs allow you to make cool characters and landscapes.
to get the programs you need to sign up but i did in seconds and it was free aswell.. didnt even need a credit card
so if you like art and want to mess around with ur spare comp time... GO WILD
thanks for your time
