Free Windows Utilities

Piriform Ltd has a number of free Windows utilities that are well worth what you pay.  You can visit their web sites for complete information on them and decide for yourself if they are something you’re interested in.

A couple notes:

  • Like lots of “free” software, watch the installation options to avoid installing any extra software you might not want (and check your install afterwards for pesky tool bars, etc).
  • Defraggler actually has one really nice feature — it will defragment individual files on demand.

Fangate

I don’t know whether to classify this is sad, tragic, or funny…

Apparently Rick Scott refused to take the stage for seven minutes in a debate with Charlie Crist because Crist had placed an fan in his podium to help keep cool.

Scott stated that because the debate rules forbade electronic devices the fan was a violation; clearly (like so many other things), Rick Scott doesn’t know the difference between electrical and electronic devices.

If his intent to was illustrate to the world how stupid he is, he certainly achieved it.

I would never entertain the idea of voting for Scott (nor did I entertain such an idea in the past).  That’s not saying I’m thrilled about the candidate running against him… but I’ll certainly make sure to mark my ballot against Rick Scott in a few days when early voting opens.
