What do you use daily?

Post by cuttheredwire » 08/17/10, 8:44 pm

At some point I'm going to do posts with some software I use daily and can't live without. Most of them are alternative apps, but some are more interesting.

That brings about the question: What do you use daily?

Here is my little list to give you an idea:
• Xplorer²
• IrfranView
• Foobar2000
• Chrome
• Notepad++
• LiteStep
• DropBox
• Eve-Online*
• USB Disk Ejector

*just a game, but I do use it daily

Hope it's better than my primitive brain. It's dark in here, and I can only do one thing at a time. Sometimes I feel like no one understands me. >;}

Thank You for your interest.
At this time we have reached or exceeded the amount of users authorized to check into to the source tree.

However, we have an active user community that
generates good discussion and helpful tips about the latest iteration of Don_U. You might wish to use the current bug list and see if your idea has already been suggested or under review for implementation. The local development team takes great pride in the review process. They are very good at vetting past issues or problems until they are corrected. Again thank you for your interest.
