Hmmm

RENQ which is a prompted renamer is good.

MJOG which is a dos based calendering reiminder system is also good.

TextPad makes editing HTML and batch files and cue sheets, etc. very easy with superb macro's

MailWasher is great for dealing with spam without downloading it first and

SuperUtility by Kim Watt for the TRS-80 was fantastic

Product: Coolmonitor

Use: Various system monitoring

Type: Freeware

Impression: The name says it all, very kewl! - Not particularly user friendly, but work with it for a while and it'll unleash it's mighty kewlness... You can pratically monitor anything with it e.g. cpu/mobo temps, hd space, ram space, network status, you name it. Check out their forum, people have made scripts for alot of cool stuff. If you're hooked up to the internet 24/7, you can have the weather report, the tv-guide, Asusboards folding stats, live on display. The thing that distincts coolmon from other monitoring software, is that it's integrated with your desktop, so you'll have your info right in front of your nose. I love this progie.

Thumbs up

I have this little app I use called Daily Rotation that you can configure to go to your regular daily internet sites by clicking the small icon in the system tray. I have about ten sites I visit every day no matter what and it's a little easier and quicker with this gem.

I've attached the program to this post...

Enjoy!

Ok, I cound a cool little program that converts print screens to jpegs automatically and placesd them on your desktop. You can specify the image quaility of the file via a slider on the gui. Nice compact and pretty cool. Glad that i found it.
