My two favourite sources of Windows NT / 2000 info: JSI's
Tips, Tricks, and Registry Hacks,
and John Savill's NTFAQ - the first two
places I look!
Page - I'm usually lurking in the Premier website
Novell's Home Page -
Not as often any more, but I still have a Netware server...
Many Linux distros are available from
VMWare permits many
virtual computers on a single physical computer -- I run DOS, Win3.11, Win95,
Win98SE, WinMe, WinXP, Win2K, Win .NET, Netware, RedHat Linux 7.3 and 8.0, and
FreeBSD (not simultaneously!)
Freeware Home -
An excellent source of the recommended daily allowance of free software!
Tucows - freeware and
NoNags - great source
- home of Hyena!
Nurden's Home Page - home of TClockEx, the freeware clock that
MS should have included!
Software - home of
1stClock (a shareware -- and more feature-rich -- clock)
Home Page - network connection speed monitoring, dial-up or
RouterLog - archive logs from SMC Barricade routers!
SMC - for... you guessed
Barricade 7008BR routers!
- If you've never used WinBatch, check it out! A boon for
Locutus Codeware (now
RoboMagic, Inc.) - home of WetSock,
MoonPhase, and SocketWatch
RobWare - home of
File Investigator Pro, which identifies files based on header info, not
Zone Labs -
ZoneAlarm Pro is my favourite personal firewall
DNS 2 Go - (formerly) free
dynamic DNS updater and web page redirection service
Alfred Bolliger's PrintKey
2000 is a great freeware screen capture program! (unfortunately, he now
only promotes his shareware PrintKey-Pro)
Zac Schroff's DocsBoot+
is still my favourite boot manager - easy to use, easy to install, lives in
Steve Atkins' Sam Spade
web tools and windows
tools - great for fighting back against spam / UBE / UCE. Sam Spade for
Windows analyzes email headers, leading to informing the offender's ISP(s)
and having their account(s) revoked! (Fun in my book!)
SpamNet is another
good way to fight spam
The Stock Analysis
website, including a freeware tool
for stock analysis. A little crude, but quite effective!
NewsBin is, IMHO, the
best binary Usenet grabber around! No idea what I'm talking about? NewsBin/UseNet
Mark Russinovich and Bryce Cogswell - their Systems
Internals (freeware) and Winternals
(shareware) applications are THE GREATEST!
The Windows 2000
Magazine family of sites and magazines - pretty good stuff!
Jam Software -
home of TreeSize
freeware and TreeSize
Professional - see where all your disk space went!
- if you don't know, don't ask
I know there are many others, and I'll update this site as I remember them.
