August has been a busy month for me. I have about 7 projects going and it seems August decided to gang up on me with the overload factor. I’m still playing catch up but managed to scribble out my favorite FREEWARE links for you all. All of the software I have listed is free to download and contains no viruses, spyware, malware, or any other nefarious infestations. Completely safe in other words. If you decide to download any of the listed software, please let me know what you think. If you know of better software (freeware), let me know! I’m always on the hunt for better.

Coming soon will be my favorite (FREE) cloud computing links.


World Record Accomplished

Today finally came.  Not without a lot of fanfare and trying moments.  I spent most of the day on the road visiting job sites but couldn’t wait to get back to be part of the group to help break the world guiness book of records for downloading software in a 24 hour period.

Today it happened (and then some). The last count for downloads of Firefox 3 at 8:48 PDT is 3,011,739. This all started at 11:16am this morning and will continue until 11:16am tomorrow. The original goal was to break a million downloads. I’d say they had a pretty HUGE turnout.

And why shouldn’t they. Firefox 3 is one of the safest (if not the safest) web browsers out there. Other than me, no one microsoft tries to shove it down your throat. If you have any misgivings about downloading Firefox, put them aside. I had similar misgivings when I made the move from I.E to Firefox. Since I did it, I haven’t looked back. Firefox is actually fun to use with all of it’s browser add-ons you can install.
