How do I about selecting my next color?

I picked these colors while mocking up this website I am working on and I want to add more colors to the pallet.

I have been wondering if there is a resource where you could input hex colors and it spits out more colors that are compatible with that base color(s).

colors

red : ff6666 ~ turquoise : 38d4d6 ~ orange : fc9252

here is part of the site where I use these colors the most site

Kuler actually lets you define your own palate. I use it a lot to make sure that the colors I'm choosing have some sort of relation to each other.

It does exactly what I wanted! Thanks John Locke

Awesome, Mason! I like that palate; it's bold.

Gotta love that Kuler.

Came across this tasty little article which has some interesting tools.

Kuler is great, I always turn to colour lovers it's a similar type of website, but has a lot of other good sections on it too.

Dosen't really have any relevance to the topic...but! Where have you found that gorgeous laptop and computer screen "icon"? Really looks great!
