Re: Freeware Windows Applications

ESET (The makers of NOD32) have an online virus scanner that I've found useful. I personally think NOD32 is one of the best antimalware programs on the market, although I dont think I would recommend it for novice users as it can be a bit heavy on the technical side.

Here's a program I use for video editing and it's quite good:

http://www.softwareclub.ws/v_split.html It's called SC Video Cut and Split.

Another good site for freeware apps is http://www.freewarefiles.com

Re: Freeware Windows Applications

If anyone os imterested in cataloging their book colelction There is a good freeware database for you called BookDB2.

Its fields include

Title
Secondary Title
Author (2 fields - and you can tick authors as being editirs)
Book cost
Language
Fiction/non Fiction
Publication details i.e publisher, year, edition, no of pages
Call number
Type of medium i,e paperback, hardback, references, Comic. Magazine, CD/DVD etc

It also allows you to assign categories and keep track of borrowings.

It has a Description and a Location field.

In a later edition a Contents field will be added.

My only real complaint is there is no Notes or Comdition field but I guess that could be included under description.

Will it accept HTML pages that were originally made in Macromedia Dreamweaver MX2004?

Anyway, for us Windows users who are sick of just how slow (and pathetic) iTunes has become for us, I present to you a little program called SharePod. When I say 'little' I mean it's only 2.81 MB for the latest version, 3.9.0.

http://www.getsharepod.com/

It won't let you re-organize the Master List of songs but, it does have tools that let you do anything else you want to do. It works with the iPod Touch as well.

Anyone know of a free program for creating comic strips? Yeah, I know I can make them with Paint, but I'm lazy.

Is Paint.Net better than the GIMP? I wouldn't think so.

I did not see Celestia on the lists so I thought I'd mention it.
