What looks like a list of great resources, that I’ve been meaning to look at for some time – I’ll store them here until I get a chance!
Nvu – http://www.nvu.com/ – Free
A Dreamweaver-like web authoring suite. Part of the Mozilla project.
KeePass – http://keepass.sourceforge.net/ – Free
An encrypted password database. Let’s face it, we all have WAY too many passwords to remember.
FileZilla – http://filezilla.sourceforge.net/ – Free
FTP software that works really well.
Clipomatic – http://www.mlin.net/Clipomatic.shtml – Free
Caches Clipboard text for later reuse.
PrimoPDF – http://www.primopdf.com/ – Free
A print driver that will convert to PDF. Similar to Adobe Distiller.
Crimson Editor – http://www.crimsoneditor.com/ – Free
IMHO, the best freeware text editor. To many features to list here, so check out the site.
WinKey – http://www.copernic.com/winkey/ – Free
Assign hotkeys to open programs.
TUGZip – http://www.tugzip.com/ – Free
A free WinZip alternative that opens nearly all compression formats (7z, ACE, RAR, etc.).
Pimmy – http://www.geminisoft.com/en/pimmy/ – Free
Combination E-mail/Usenet/Media player software that’s tiny and fast. Probably won’t appeal to everyone, but it’s worth pointing out.
Craig’s Affiliate Link Redirector – http://www.bitbucketheaven.com/calr/ – $9.95
An affiliate link encoder. This is my favorite for (what should be) obvious reasons. 🙂
G-Lock Spam Combat – http://www.glocksoft.com/sc/ – Free/$35
Similar to MailWasher, but I personally like this one better. The free version only lets you use one account.

Bloglines is an RSS viewing site. Just give them your favorite RSS feeds, and you can keep up-to-date with your favorite sites from any Internet-enabled computer.
Yahoo! – http://www.yahoo.com/ – Most services free
I can’t count how much I use the Notepad and Briefcase when on the road. You can also get e-mail, instant messaging, and several other tools as well.
(Note: most of these are affiliate/reseller links, but they ARE books I paid for myself.)
Write a Book in 14 Days or Less – http://www.bitbucketheaven.com/misc/writeabooknow.html – $39-up
Steve Manning’s formula and guide to quickly punch out a best-selling book in about 30 hours’ time.
Super Affliate Handbook – http://www.bitbucketheaven.com/misc/sah.html – $39
Considered by some to be the “bible” of affiliate marketing. May be too much hand-holding for experienced marketers, but perfect for newbies.
Info Millionaire – http://web.archive.org/web….ire.pdf – Free
This was the precurser to Frank Kern and Ed Dale’s “Underachiever Mastery Course”. Although slightly dated, the core information is as valuable as it ever was.
Autopilot Income Streams – http://www.bitbucketheaven.com/ais/ – $20
Jimmy Brown’s system for writing an autoresponder eCourse.
30 Days To Internet Marketing Success – http://www.bitbucketheaven.com/misc/30days.html – $97
While it might be pricey for some, I found this collection of plans and ideas to be very useful, just from an idea-generation point of view.
