I just released a new version of Presto's Sidebar Clock (v1.45). The big feature in this release is the addition of sunrise and sunset support. The clock can be set to automatically dim at night if a timezone is set. This uses the Javascript sunrise class that I wrote last week.

I finally found a decent Expose clone for Vista: Switcher. Yes, Mac people, no need to leave a comment about how this is built-in to Macs. I already know it's an awesome feature. That's why I want it in Vista. I'm not sure why Microsoft didn't build this feature in themselves, but Switcher seems to do the job. Of course, if anybody knows of something better, I'd love to hear about it.

You want to print to PDF and you don't want to mess with ad-supported drivers with pop-ups and you don't want to pay for Acrobat from Adobe? (Or you're like me and you did pay for Acrobat, but the overly aggressive licensing server keeps deactivating your product?) BullZip PDF is the answer.

My favorite network traffic monitor has been updated: DU Meter 4.0. There are plenty of free or shareware network monitor tools, but I still like DU Meter the best. The new version has a great sidebar gadget for Vista and a new unobtrusive window that sits at the top of the screen showing total megabits per second up or down from your box.

I found this speech on the GNU Public License 3.0 from Richard Stallman very informative. Love or hate his rarefied idealism, you have to admit that Stallman is a genius and a "big picture" thinker! This personal interview with him was also quite illuminating.
