someone already said that..

The link for gaim is spelled incorrectly.

http://gim.sourceforge.net/ should be http://gaim.sourceforge.net/

This list is amazing, I'm finding a bunch of cool programs that I never knew existed.

Audio/Video

Aud-X http://www.aud-x.com/

Aud-X is the name of a completely new surround sound encoder and decoder created by group of audio enthusiasts and professionals joined with love to the Cinema. For a long time people converted DVDs to Divx/Xvid with mp3 stereo sound. We have all felt that part of the orginal masterpiece was gone forever (the surround sound). The main Aud-X project task was to bring to people an easy technology for encoding Divx/Xvid movies with 5.1 sound the same way they used to do it with the simple mp3 stereo encoders. Since Aud-X 5.1 sounds great at 128 kbps and is compatible with AVI ? you can reencode DVDs the same way you are used to, but with full surround sound.

PowerPro

http://powerpro.webeddie.com/

summary from publisher's site:

PowerPro lets you take control of how you use Windows 95/98/NT/2000/XP. Run commands and configure your system any way you want.

PowerPro gives you a compact and powerful launch bar, menu, and tray icon facility. But this is just the start. With a little experimenting with its configuration, you'll find that you can use PowerPro to change the way you work with your system. The source of its power is the way PowerPro integrates three capabilities:

Running commands: <xhowlaunch.htm> Tool bars, tray icons, hot keys, mouse actions, menus, timer, scheduler.

Controlling other program's windows: <xconfig.htm> Close, minimize, maximize, roll-up to caption, tray minimize, position.

Providing utility functions: <xutils.htm> Send keystrokes to programs, run commands when windows first open, virtual desktops, clipboard extender, keyboard macros, shutdown, show all folder files in a menu, sounds, wallpaper, and screensaver activation and randomization.

CCCP http://www.cccp-project.net/

The CCCP (Combined Community Codec Pack) is a filter pack specifically built for playing anime. It has been assembled by some of the most knowledgeable people in the anime world, and one of the primary design goals is to play as much as possible with as little as possible. The CCCP attempts to be as unintrusive on your system as possible.

I hope this is added because this is a very good codec pack that can play a wide range of video formats.

* Remap keys and buttons on your keyboard, joystick, and mouse.

* Respond to signals from hand-held remote controls via the WinLIRC client script.
