Would be nice if OP collect all the suggestions and arrange it for sticky vote.
Well, thought I'd suggest some stuff for digital music.
dBpoweramp - Swiss army knife of music file conversion/ripping
Mp3tag - Tag editor for mp3. Can embed artwork, rename files according to tags, batch process details...
I'll help with that if it's an option. I think we can do basic tables in bb code, so maybe we could create a table for each class of software with the name (and a link to back it up and make it easier to find) and a quick one sentence description.
it's together, adding contributions now
SyncBack (Free / $30 or $50 USD)
TrueCrypt (Free / Donation)
Adblock Plus (Free)
Element Hiding Helper (Free)
NoScript (Free / Donation)
anyone said VLC player yet?
also www.ninite.com is what I use every time I reinstall. So convenient
I use a binary keyboard to directly enter commands on the CPU of IBM mainframes.......
Or I just hack shit together......whatever is faster.
I'm not sure if I should respond to that or not. If you don't believe me and would like to try it for yourself, here is the link to SPF/SE. You can download the demo and try both versions.
The software does have a limit of 64000 characters per line though - in case that would be an issue for you.
Ultramon if you're running multiple monitors. Not free, but it's above everything else I've tried.
Media jukebox--->does more then mediamonkey and everything is free. inc. multicore processing, encodes, full DSP, etc). has an even better version called media center (apprx 40USD) that adds video and zones (sending different songs to different rooms [sets of speakers], and tons more!)
handbrake--->Awesome video converter
virtualdub--->powerful video editor that's free
process explorer--->look more into what's ticking on your system. excellent program
stardock fences--->organizes icons into zones and allows more control and hide with a double click
filezilla--->excellent free FTP program
VMWare (anything from them)--->The best virtualization products!
VMWare FTW!!!! Love that company and thier Virtualization products!!!
I have been organizing them into the op, and i will continue that today. If you have any ideas to make it cleaner let me know, other than that keep the contributions coming!
Installed this yesterday:
It's called Fences and it's rather neat
someone else mentioned this, probably remixed. i can't believe i didn't! i personally use this and it is friggen awesome.
the fences are great and all, but it also has double click to hide desktop icons, which i love.
i will get it (and the rest of yours remixed ) added today sometime.
yup I am the one that mentioned it LOL. and yeah I love it.
Oh yeahhh shoulda read the OP xD
it wouldn't have been there... i added it after you suggested it
GreenFish Icon Editor Pro|Free|Powerful image/icon editor.|
EditPlus|Trial/$35USD|Powerful text/script editor. It can even find in files and has its own integrated browser.|
Hex Workshop|Trial/$90USD|Powerful binary file editor.|
Microsoft Visual Studio Express Editions|Free|Everything you need to make non-commercial applications.|
The only one on there that might not qualify is VS EE but, I think a lot of people aren't aware they offer a free version (as opposed to $1000+) for non-commercial use. It's great for those that want to test the waters of programming.
You know the two apps I posted yester-page fit the criteria
If we're posting APPS as well, this is nice (for Chrome):
WOW now my desktop is tidy and neat excellent program
It's like free photoshop, and easier to use than GIMP
I recommend it for basic editing
WinHTTrack - for downloading entire web sites.
I use this all of the time to do some serious leeching. It even has settings so you can do stealth leaching - IOW, leech from a site without impacting their bandwidth or response times.
Here is my favorite desktop gadget - AGS Digital Multi-Clock
You can have as many clocks as you want for all different time zones. You can label each one and set a background just for that clock. I think it comes in very handy.
I would add Free MP3 WMA converter, it can convert almost all audio formats to each one
MP3Gain to normalize volume through songs
Separate names with a comma.
