Recommendations

The following (incomplete) list contains lots and lots of stuff that I like and that I want to let other people now about. This includes all types of software, comics, movies and much more.

Software
Title Description
KeePass Password Safe 

KeePass is a free open source password manager, which helps you to manage your passwords in a secure way. You can put all your passwords in one database, which is locked with one master key or a key file. So you only have to remember one single master password or select the key file to unlock the whole database. The databases are encrypted using the best and most secure encryption algorithms currently known (AES and Twofish).

I'm using this amazing little freeware for Windows to organize about 250 different passwords and it's the best password management solution I've seen so far.

Launchy 

Launchy is a free cross-platform utility designed to help you forget about your start menu, the icons on your desktop, and even your file manager.

Launchy indexes the programs in your start menu and can launch your documents, project files, folders, and bookmarks with just a few keystrokes!

Notepad++ 

Notepad++ is a free (as in "free speech" and also as in "free beer") source code editor and Notepad replacement that supports several languages. Contrary to the original Notepad application delivered with Microsoft® Windows®, it's capable of handling Unix style linebreaks natively which makes it my number 1 choice for editing cross-platform files.

TweetDeck 

TweetDeck, now maintained by Twitter itself, is my favorite Twitter client for the desktop. Tweets of different types can be organized in columns which can also be filtered to remove unwanted content. The alert feature informs about tweets of interest like mentions or direct messages.
