Rebuilding a PC

So I'm rebuilding my PC again, and I realized that I'm going to need a list of my Windows-based software that is essential to getting stuff done.

Without fanfare, then, here's my top few:

1) Vista - hey, you gotta have an OS, right?

2) Thunderbird

3) EditPad Pro

4) Agent Ransack - I couldn't survive without this, because with it, I don't have to remember where I put things (as much :P)

5) Firefox

6) Eraser

My New Thunderbird Favorite AddOn

EMail Address Crawler 1.8.0 by CySlider has to be my new favorite Thunderbird AddOn:


The description is rather straightforward:

Automatically fill your address books or send mass mails with e-mail addresses extracted from all your e-mails.

It sounds like something a good person wouldn't do, doesn't it? Lose their addressbook, I mean.

But if you do, and you're a Thunderbird user, this little gem can save your life, not to mention your hair!

Ubuntu & VPC 2007

I kinda wish I'd found this link before I went all nuts on down this road. I think I could have learned a lot more about email and application configurability if I'd played more before leaping.
