I'm asking about free (non-shareware), legal applications, entertaining, useful, and non-complicated. Moving them off Windows is not an option.
I am a programmer at a very large corporate company where I have a number of usernames and passwords. I have a user for the company intranet web experience, the company mainframe, my department's LAN and e-mail system, and a number of other usernames and passwords for various other items (the OLD e-mail system to access systems that haven't been ported to the NEW system yet, the dev, test and production databases, our department's wiki, my Flexible Spending Account through the company, access to our health and benefits division, etc.).
It's a lot to keep track of. *to be continued*
For the last few years, I've given comics books to kids for Halloween. Ain't it Cool News even published my guide for doing so. I wonder what other geeks give people for Halloween; CDs with free PC games on them? Cheapass Games packs? Heroclix?
From the article:
I have given out comics from my house for the last 4 years, and only once has a child complained. Most of the time I get happy kids who start requesting certain heroes like the X-Men or Batman or Spider-Man. Once I handed a kid a recent, slightly-bent, issue of JLA and his eyes lit up and he proclaimed, "Cool! Old-fashioned comic books!" I didn't know whether to smile or take it back and kick him off of my porch. I let him keep it. You'll get that sometimes. Don't let them make you feel too old.
