Mitch's Must Have Programs. [Lockergnome - Mitchelaneous 4/5/2005] Within the time span of one year I have installed, reinstalled, deleted, and created more than any one person should on one computer. About a week ago I figured it was time I did a little spring cleaning. I totally reformatted my machine and put Windows XP back on just like it came out of the box. So what programs to I make a note of installing first? What do I use most often and what do I find the most effective? Here's my basic list: TweakUI, FeedDemonFirefox, SmartFTP, Trillian, OpenOffice, NoteTab Pro, Audacity, Spybot, AVG Free ...

With Synergy, all the computers on your desktop form a single virtual screen. You use the mouse and keyboard of only one of the computers while you use all of the monitors on all of the computers. You tell synergy how many screens you have and their positions relative to one another. Synergy then detects when the mouse moves off the edge of a screen and jumps it instantly to the neighboring screen. The keyboard works normally on each screen; input goes to whichever screen has the cursor. GNU GPL

Microsoft has a very eclectic collection of products aquired for all sorts of reasons over the years and which see the light of day (or not) by many varied means. Microsoft Expression, for example, is a pretty good vector drawing app a la Adobe Illustrator which you can download for FREE! It's listed as version 3.3 Beta and 'not for sale' but does not seem to fit into any family, and it's an app of a type currently missing from Office so maybe it might eventually end up there... who knows? anyway, its a very worthwhile - if large (57.6MB) - download.

Password Scrambler Screen ShotPassword Scrambler by /n software inc is free and gives you a quick way to create unique passwords for all of the sites you visit by generating a one way hashed password based on your own private password and the target site's domain. Using it is as simple as clicking a new button on your IE toolbar. Nice! It looks like Keith Brown created a similar tool in a recent MSDN Magazine article. The last line in Keith's article says it all: What really matters is that you pick a password management tool that you trust and that you use it consistently. Don't settle for using the same password everywhere you go! [Scott Watermasysk 9/29/2004]

Open Lucene Search Engine. It looks like someone has re-opened the Lucene.Net project as DotLucene. For those of you who did not hear, Lucene.NET was an open source implementation of Lucene (which is also open source). However, at some point, the project owners decided to close the project and form a new company to sell the code as a product. I have been using the OS version of Lucene for a while now (there was another implementation prior to Lucene.Net as well), so I was a little bummed to see it go away. I had also started to do some writing on .NET version, until the project disappeared. Looks like I can now finish that work and get it published some where. You can find the bits over on SourceForge.

laser cutting3-Axis cnc millingSheet Metal FabricationBuild Your Robot Online: Ever needed a custom part for a robot, case mod or hardware hack but lacked the tools or a machineshop to make one for you? Ever needed a custom circuit board? Well, PC Magazine's Bill Machrone writes about a few websites, Emachineshop and Pad2Pad, where you use their free software to design, price, and order anything you can design with the software. This is more useful to slashdotters than 3D 'printing' technologies like rapid prototyping since you get real working parts. It looks like they support a number of machines and fabrication techniques beyond traditional machining, like plastic injection molding and waterjet. As Machrone says, this is empowering stuff. This is something that should ignite a creative spark to all you hardware tinkerers out there in Slashdot land."  [Slashdot 7/16/2004]

Fly me to the news...Rocket RSS Reader: Instead of being tied to a software newsreader, try the Rocket RSS Reader, a personal Web-based aggregator. There's no software to download - just sign-up for your free account and you're ready to go! This is a great option for first-timers that want to see what all of the fuss is about. The reader is simple compared to the software options out there, but it's useful nonetheless. The feeds are categorized under folders in the left hand column; you can subscribe to your favorite feeds, and even search for new ones within the window. One thing I noticed was that links within posts did not appear. This is kind of a letdown, but you can still click the Full Story link at the bottom of each post to get the proper links. Oh yeah, it also runs on all OSes and browsers, and contains support for Atom feeds as well. [Lockergnome's Windows Fanatics 4/28/2004]

Not only is it extremely pretty and easy-to-follow but it's also open: information flows out of the app as RSS and can be bulk-exported in XML, so none of your precious project-management material becomes a lever to lock you into paying the (surprisingly reasonable) monthly rates. Basecamp can be skinned to look like your internal website and you can reference it with custom URLs that don't contain any hint that your project is being hosted anywhere but your own site: as the marketing bumpf points out, this is the kind of thing that can give you appearance of really intimidating savviness to your clients.
