Windows and windowing
- Taskix for changing the order of windows in the taskbar
- Ultramon for having a taskbar appear on each monitor
- Winspector for examining Windows messages
- Winmerge for code file diffing
- WinDiff for diffing either single files, or entire folders. This is a powerful program, don’t let its simple appearance deceive you. Comes with Windows SDK, if you develop for Windows you probably already have it.
- Regex Coach for testing out regular expressions
- TCPView for looking at net connections that are active, and what program is using it
- the rest of the SysInternals suite (great tools!)
- PuTTY for telnet
- a href=”http://www.oldversion.com/download_WS_FTP_LE_6.html”>ws_ftp 6 for FTP file transfers, before it became bloatware
- DaemonTools – mounts DVD images to your hard disk, though i like poweriso as well (*poweriso is not free, its shareware)
- Teracopy. For copying files between disks. This application is BLAZINGLY fast, you won’t believe it – if you’re used to Windows Explorer copies.
- GoldWave – a fantastic recorder/wav/sound editor
- Winamp – just THE BEST media player. Now plays FLV!
- VLC for all those avi’s that just refuse to play with anything else
NES and games
- yy-chr nes sprite extractor [[ DEAD ]] – try the web archive or zophar.net or esnips copy (thanks esnips!).
(yy-chr tutorial of sorts)
- NES sound file player: slickproductions “notsofatso” nsf player (also, collection of nsf’s from akumu’s NSF archive)
(this section lacking, i know)
- Not so much these days, but multiple ie gives you ie 6
