Tools of the Geek Trade
(Learn them! Live them! Love them!)

 

Some useful utilities that will make your life wonderfully exciting... no geek would be caught without them! All software is for Windows 95 unless otherwise specified, although I would think most would run on NT and possibly Windows 3.x as well. No guarantees on anything, however.




UNIT CONVERSION UTILITY

Convert 4.08 screen capture

This is neat as neat can be, it converts just about anything to anything... length, volume, speed, computer data sizes, torque, chemical concentration, etc. It's incredibly simple, just type in the number and pick the unit you know and then pick what unit you want to convert it to, and there is your answer. This is freeware (YAY!!) by Josh Madison. You can download version 4.08 as a 167KB (or 1.448494e-016 zettabytes if you prefer) Zip file from that site, or from this one by clicking here.




COMPUTING DOWN UNDER

Australia.exe is a tiny (4K) utility, when you run it, it does nothing more than turn your screen upside down and backwards until you hit a key or click the mouse. The mouse still moves around normally, though. Kind of fun for leaving your desk when you don't need real security but also don't especially want people to casually look at what's on your monitor. Download it here (2KB Zip file.)
