Things that make my life better...thanks for sharing

Well, that was a nice little spike of traffic.  A few random thoughts:

  • Thanks to everyone for comments and author corrections for the tools on my List o' Tools. 
  • Too bad Radio doesn't appear to support Trackback/Pingback from 'Stories' or I'd know who's linking to me. 
  • I'll continue to update the tools list as I add more.  I'll also try to categorize it one day. 
  • Note that I only keep favorite tools - no cruft, no crap.  This isn't a list of "all tools" or "favorite tools" but rather "things that make my life better"
  • Some folks commented that it was mostly Windows and .NET stuff.  True, true.  That's where I live now, but some tools/utils I didn't include were Grep for Windows and Cygwin and Visual Studio Power Toys, etc, as I didn't think they qualified as simple little utils, although maybe they do.
  • I didn't include a utilities that are internal (either Corillian-internal or Microsoft-internal) although I wish I could.  There's some amazing stuff out there.
  • Now only if my list could get Scobleized by Robert's 18 readers...
  • As I sit here and look at my Start Menu, that fills my 1600x1200 screen and runs off the right edge, I see at least 40 other great utils that AREN'T in C:/UTILS that I missed.  I'll add them one day.
