Toolkit for the Technically Aware, Part 2

In this post, I mimiced the list of tools that Brendon Connelly lists.
I forgot to add some of my personal favourites and additions.

  • Cygwin: Makes any Windows machine able to run a linux-like terminal
  • Caffeine. Addicted.
  • Ethereal: If you are a geek, you need this. Packet-sniffing goodness
  • Trillian. Yeah, GAIM is open-source, but Trillian is just that much slicker
  • Firefox. Runs anywhere; need to know more?

I know that most of these are more for the geek side of the house, but a lot of my traffic comes from those folks.
