Software roundup this week

* Microsoft’s Acrylic. Installed. I’m not a graphics wonk but certainly seems easier to use than GIMP.
* Sysinternals process explorer. Another great tool for finding out what is going on in your PC. I wish it explained rundll hosted DLLs a little more clearly.
* Dumeter. Nice for seeing what traffic is really hitting the net from your system. Wish this tied back to something like the process explorer so I could see by process. Hey Pure Networks folks…
* Phil is hosting an infocom interpreter for blackberries on his site. Fun memories.
* Biopassword. Thought about trying but passed. But I like the idea.
* Gadgetopia recommends BitLord for torrent downloading, I haven’t tried.
* A pointer to FireANT. I may start videoing some of my hikes and may want to play around with this.
* Something here about Ajax debugging, seems interesting.
* Matt Croydon thinks A9.com rocks. I haven’t looked at for a while, I did today, it does seem to be getting cooler.
* Several bloggers pointed towards the real-time update log of Wikipedia, so much so that the service went down. Too bad, this would be fascinating to watch. I’m embarrassed to admit that I haven’t contributed anything to Wikipedia yet.
