bitRipper is a tiny, easy and simple way of ripping/backing up your dvd.



One button press
and it's a-ripping. You can also fiddle with options if you want to.

Hokay, anyone who's using Digsby needs to stop doing that now. Lifehacker cover it in full but they recently filled their program with crapware that monitors your actively, uses your CPU and connection and more besides.

Trillian Astra left beta recently and replaces it nicely.

im on arch linux so things may be a little different.

ssh
irssi
finch
mpd with ncmpc and mpdscribble
awesome window manager
wicd
amarok 1.4.x for my ipod and podcasts
firefox with the vimperator extension
vim
evolution
transmission
mplayer (better than vlc)
the gimp
and the greatest application installer forged by human hands: pacman (with yaourt).

The Tech Toolkit 2.0 is a magical thing that comes in especially handy if you end up being tech support for family and friends.

It allows you to put eleven kagillion free, portable utilities on your thumb drive and keeps them all updated from one program - essentially making that thumb drive a 'kit' for 'tools'.

Every program downloaded - from virus checkers, to recovery to dvd burners - takes up a mere 270mb.

Running out of space?

Spacesniffer visualizes what's on your hard drive, making cleaning up your drive a much easier and much more pleasant experience.

It's a bit cool.





Don't want fancy graphics? Hey, that's fine, JDiskReport ranks file sizes, shows you where they are and the distribution of file sizes + more.

Thought as much, it replaced VLC almost immediately.

on linux there is a package similar to SpaceSniffter called Filelight. its a qt application. i know there is something similar for the gtk-centric desktops out there but this works really well..
Filelight | MethylBlue
