Is such an utility really necessary ? Aren't FAT32 storage devices optimized for quick removal by default ? I just unplug mine as soon as any writing operation is complete. Any of you NTFS formatting drives?

The best diff app I have yet to see for text is the one that comes with Visual Slick Edit. I can't help but mention that Visual Slick Edit is one great editor for programmers.

I'd like to share with you how I learned to touchtype. Learning about the Das Keyboard(, I decided to sand the markings on my keyboard to have my own cheap Das Keyboard-like-keyboard. Being fast at hunt-and-peck typing, I was mistaken into thinking that I already knew where each key was and I that I would be able to type without the key markings. I was so wrong, and instead of swapping the keyboard (I have so many), I decided to learn touchtyping. I used Accutype  to learn. The thing I liked about it is that it won't allow you try another exercise untill you reach a certain level of accuracy.
