Figured maybe we could use a non-techsupport thread on here.

Have any programs you enjoy working with and couldn't live without?
Want to share your standard program for some purpose you don't see enough love for?
Maybe just have a resource or neat skin?

Staggered to keep the opening post clean, but some of mine:

For IRC on windows, HexChat has treated me best. Also really soft and easy on the eyes with this theme, https://github.com/drzel/intern-hexchat-theme

For structured notes I'm really loving CherryTree, some dude on /b/ tipped me onto it when I mentioned another older nonfree program (can't even remember the name of that one anymore) in the same style. Having things spread out logically sorted in trees between different documents but having it all in the same file really kicks ass. No more forgetting where you put that one text file with some info you needed.

I also do some mindmapping, xmind is pretty good. Others I've seen seem to be either web-based or not as intuitive and simple user interface wise.

And a last nugget, the old-style iTunes skin for VLC is really comfy, pic related. It's on the official site, https://www.videolan.org/vlc/skins.html?sort=downloads , almost furthest down.

I encrypted my DNS traffic on the browser level so my ISP can't see what kind of porn hentai I browse. A brilliant change I highly recommend. Not so much a program as a service.


My most used programs are:
utorrent (old build, for piracy)
bitcoin (for droogz)
OpenVPN (for VPN client)
UE4 (for dev)
Keepass2 (for password)
VMware workstation (for virtual machines)

It was Treepad. Hey OP.

Windows command line:
chocolatey to install and manage software
Some kind of Cygwin environment, probably Git Bash or MSYS2
All the basic unix utilties, comes with git by default I think
nircmd to automate Windows stuff

Windows graphical applications:
Barrier for sharing keyboard and mouse over the network
Foobar2000 because I've never found anything better
Keepass2 for sekrits management
qBittorrent because only a savage uses uTorrent
Speedcrunch as a drop in replacement for calc.exe
SumatraPDF for reading
Veracrypt for encrtyped drives and containers
VS Code for programming

These are what I generally have always used.
Firefox: addons; noscript, https everywhere, ublock origin. Configure options
VLC Media Player
MusicBee; was nice in the past
ImageGlass: surely there are better
IrfanView: has or had been the default image viewer, but hasn't changed much
avgfree: just work with it
qbittorrent: sometimes sucks
uTorrent: 2.2.1 build? 25302: I think that is OK build
7-zip: for sure, aes 256 cencryption. 7-zip saved as, vulnerable in the past
checksumtool: open souce, there are surely better options
Eraser: used to be cool. Wipe stubborn files.Surely there are better options.
foxit pdf reader:
VirtualBox: run an OS within windows linux, unix like sytems
vmware workstation: run an OS within windows. my need to config a simple file and

change a bios setting to us a VM
Putty: ssh, telnet.A default should have if you know what it does.
Proxy chains: if just to mess around
dosbox-Fend Reloaded: DOS stuff, games, etc.
mameui: for those who like classic arcade games
Magical Jelly Bean: may come in handy, I guess
unetbootin: make bootable OS
windows download tool: Bootable win 7 only bootable usb creator for win 7? 10
Rufus: make bootable OS
windows 7 windows 10; create all in one dvds
Classic Shell: make 10 like 7
ext2fsd: for reading writing to ext filesystems in linux from windows, can flake

out trying to ask it to do too much.

FDM file download manager used to be cool, I beleive it would search other sites

ftp, etc, for the same file, checking checksum to match and download using

multiple strams. Lat I used it, it, kinda screwed with stuff. Enough to


dnscrypt-proxy: use it as opposed to your isps DNS servers. Encrypted requests,
must have. Use with out without VPN, if vpn has unfixable dns leaks, this will

surely fix it. Search dnscrypt-proxy windows for windows instaructions.If error

appears, and followed driections, juat keep going. Easy dnscrypt exists, was

kinda flaky when I used it.I beleive firefox and chrome can use ssl to
cloudflare to encrypt DNS natively. in dns setting in windows should fix
dns leak issues as well.

Good nformation
Definatelty try what klez recommends. Your browsing should be faster and your isp will not be keeping your DNS resolving logs or however they keep them. You can likely do a 'dns leak test' and see your ISP address (without a vpn running.) Then see cloudflare as your dns relolver ip address.

I rediscovered one of my favorite programs, electricsheep

It's an evolving screensaver and it's just great.

No idea if it's "safe" or who really made it (use at your own risk, no AV I've scanned it with have found anything though), but a very speedy text editor written in MASM, 20kb large:
Pretty cool that it opens faster than built-in microsoft notepad.

Keyboard driven browser.
Really nice, used to be on VimFX so was heartbroken when it got killed by firefox changing how their addon system works.
Nice to know it won't get pulled out from under you (as long as the project suvives) as it's the main thing of the browser, not an addon.
