General Utilities

Outlook Linker http://www.teamscope.com/otherpro/utilities.asp#linker

Outlook Linker? provides the ability to generate links to other items in Outlook. It is a system tray applet that automatically generates a hyperlink for the current folder or item (message) and places it on the clipboard. The hyperlink can then be pasted into any MS Office document, Web page, e-mail message, etc This is fundamental to the efficient and productive use of shared items in a Exchange public folder system. Unfortunately, Microsoft has not provided a convenient way to get access to these links.

Whitney Defrag http://www.whitneyfamily.org/Hacks/?item=Defrag

Command line and a bit slower than most, but ruthlessly efficient.

The zip contains Defrag.exe, DefragPS.dll- put these in a new folder anywhere

and bootdrg.exe which you put in System32.

For common defragging tasks, create a desktop shortcut of Defrag.exe and add the switch

Defrag.exe -d c

HTML Editors

PHP Designer 2005 and HTMLGate FREE


Both incredible packages with features galore.

Perhaps members and guests should be reminded, while perusing this list, that the developers of these fine products should be actively encouraged....that is, where they ask for PayPal donations or such, be generous.

I have found a new tool that helps people quickly review many websites. In addition it helps prevent you from going to sites with spyware, adware, viruses, or even just poor content. The tool is the ReviewToolbar which allows users to rate sites, so that legitimate sites with good content are easily distinguishable from malicious or poorly designed sites. The program embeds site ratings directly in the search results of the web's most popular search engines. The best thing is that like all good tools, it is free. It is available for free at http://www.reviewtoolbar.com
