06:57 pm - stolen! (from ronebofh)
List 3 of your most favourite (and preferably obscure) software programs and why they're useful. Then tag 3 people so they might learn of some cool programs that they also may want to use. Well, I don't tag, but here goes:

1. Photomeister (http://www.photomeister.com). It's a Windows program for managing pictures and it's lovely.
2. Winamp (http://www.winamp.com) By now everyone smart enough to not use itunes is using Winamp, and for good reason.
3. Cygwin (http://www.cygwin.com) Cygwin is an Xwindows emulator for PC. I spend way too much time on PCs lately.

My pictures from the weekend are up here.

It's very wet outside. I'm not fond of my new office.

I'm not sure which photo I like better: the one of THE T-SHIRT, or the one of your father with his head lolling to the side.

As usual, there are not enough photos of you. And yes I know why. :-)

"2. Winamp (http://www.winamp.com) By now everyone smart enough to not use itunes is using Winamp, and for good reason. "

What is your issues with iTunes. I'm not disagreeing with you, I'm just curious. I use it because I use a mac, and have an ipod, and I like the way it organizes my music. I'm really curious as to why you think Winamp is better.

"3. Cygwin (http://www.cygwin.com) Cygwin is an Xwindows emulator for PC. I spend way too much time on PCs lately.

Actually, Cygwin is a linux-like environment (like console), not an Xwindows emulator. That's more like xvision, Exceed or ReflectionX . You're thinking more of Cygwin/X http://x.cygwin.com/. It's also not really an emulator, but an environment.

As far as mine (I use a mac).

Handbrake (http://handbrake.m0k.org/) - For ripping DVDs
Adium (http://www.adiumx.com/) - IM Client
VirtueDesktops (http://virtuedesktops.info/) - Multiple desktops. Combine that with Parallels and you can do Fast OS switching on a mac - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dbt9upE6hpM

I'm not opposed to itunes on my mac, but I hate the itunes store the twice I've used it. I don't like their "YOU CAN NEVER DOWNLOAD A SONG YOU'VE PAID FOR AGAIN" policy, even though they have already forced me to use their software and register my computer, so they know it's me. I also resent that itunes makes is so hard to subscribe to their podcasts unless you have itunes.

winamp is more happy, fluffy, internet friendly.

The cygwin version I have is a UNIX emulator with a build-in Xwindows environment. I admit to emulator being the wrong term, but I won't concede the point about Xwindows. 8-)

Actually, my home computer is a mac, and so is hoppie's. Unfortunately because I haven't yet found a photo album program I like as much as the aforementioned photomeister, I still use a PC for my web site generation work.

From what I've heard, if you bitch to Apple they will let you redownload it, it's just a pain the ass. But I've never had any direct experience with that.

"I also resent that itunes makes is so hard to subscribe to their podcasts unless you have itunes."

I don't understand this? You just go to advanced/subscribe to podcast and put in the url to the rss feed. Most of my podcasts I do this.

Maybe I should consider doing that for the one song I've ever purchased and *sniff* lost, but maybe not because it still won't play on my mp3 player because OHNOES, I didn't buy an ipod!

When people give me their feed in terms of a itunes podcast, I can't find the feed url to enter it anywhere else. Maybe that's a technical limitation of the user rather than of the software, but I think it's pretty clear what I'm going to blame for it.
