Living Room / Re: How do you organise your 'My Documents' folder
« on: August 30, 2007, 04:30 AM »
Simple, clean and with everything I don't care about hidden away.  At one point I tried to fight the silly ms naming convention, but more recently, I decided to go with it for consistency (rather than fight it) and it has made my life easier.  Accept the convention and things get less painful.  (Microsoft did away with the convention in Vista, go them).

General Software Discussion / Re: Top 3 programs you use
« on: August 30, 2007, 04:19 AM »
Lots of what I use was already listed by others --- so in the hopes of getting some of the less well known stuff listed.

FlashDesktops (http://www.flashdesktops.com/) -- makes X-Windows switching feel slow when I am on Unix, the best desktop switching tool I have come into contact with on ANY Platform.

Hoekey (http://www.bcheck.net/apps/hoe.htm) -- makes keybindings to do ANYTHING.  From hitting the next button in iTunes, to vertically maximizing a window, to shutting down windows.  Kinda complex to learn, but shockingly powerful.

True Launch Bar (http://www.truelaunchbar.com/) -- quick launch bar -- on crack and roids.  It is a system monitor (cpu / mem / volume control / wireless signal), random place to put stuff (weather applet, clock applet) / super-launch bar. 

... I felt really limited only getting to choose three... so I am cheating (vim rules!  http://vim.sf.net)
