Can you smell that? Do you know that sweet fragrance?
Its the smell of a format and a fresh install of windows XP(trying out essential 2)!
Upon resetting the shit pile back down to sea level, I have the opportunity to makes some changes and tweaks. And as such I give you the chance to recommend your favorite toys and talk about how your "WaReZ be 1337 yO" and how your down with the 411....(don't post actually warez)
Thinking about glass windows 2.0...
And while I'm looking for new toys to play with, I'm also looking for the basics such as a new Codec Pack, Ace Media is getting old(literally).
And for some reason windows is automatically logging me on when I power on instead of the welcome screen and password I've set it to, and gives me the classic logon when I come back from standby. Halp??
I'll put all the recomendations in the OP so other who are browsing don't have to go though every page.
Installed so far:
Kel's CPL Bonus Pack
PC Probe 2
Virtual Cable tester
Ace Media Mega Codec Pack

Nifty little app that shows you where all your hdd space is being used.

Plays any flash video your downloaded
. It's a freeware program that lets you print documents, webpages...well, pretty much anything that's printable to a pdf rather than the stupid Microsoft Document Image format. It great for keeping receipts of any online purchases or printing a document that you want to email in a static and uneditable format. Handy to have installed.
