Geekware and utilities for pretty much every purpose under the sun. This site is run by some old-school webmasters from the dawn of the Internet.
NiftyWindows is a free Windows tool that lets you do some snazzy window manipulation with the mouse and some hotkeys. WIN+S starts the screensaver with password protection enabled, which is nice if you have to leave a room in a hurry. The fellow who wrote it has done a lot of beta testing of my savers.
