Phew. I'm not a big war games fan but this trailer for Killzone blew me away!

IE Developer Toolbar - For IE development. Not as refined as the Firefox Developer Extension but better than nothing.

Following this earlier post, I'm now looking for software 'gems' that I may have missed in 2005. I've already found a few candidates, courtesy of the good people at Sitepoint, that I will use and test in the next few months. Who knows, maybe they will make my list at the end of 2006.
And the candidates are:
MWSnap, though not sure if I'll replace Cropper anytime soon
Fiddler, an HTTP traffic inspector
SnagIt, hmmmm maybe I'll replace Cropper after all...
To be updated as I find more of them gems.

This comes in handy if the SMTP server isn't an open relay, or when traveling and accessing the Web via different ISPs.
Just configure the SMTP server (Free SMTP is free) with the DNS field set to one of the IP addresses below.
Public (Level3) Name servers (these are OC192's)
Open to the Public
# ns1.la.us.opennic.glue (New Orleans, LA, US) - 22.214.171.124
# ns1.phx.us.opennic.glue (Phoenix, AZ, US) - 126.96.36.199
# ns1.sfo.us.opennic.glue (San Francisco, CA, US) - 188.8.131.52 (fast)
# ns1.co.us.opennic.glue (Longmont, CO, US) - 184.108.40.206

Want to keep the browser from displaying data you want the user to download? Try the code snapshot below on the controller:
String filename = ..............
byte content = ...............
String mimetype = this.getServletContext().getMimeType(filename);
response.setHeader("Content-Disposition","attachment; filename=\"" + filename +"\"");
FileCopyUtils.copy(content , response.getOutputStream());
The Content-Disposition header will force the browser to download the content as an attachment rather than display it on the browser.
Go free, entrapped, primeval, tribal soul of my urban-self, go free! There are sounds and instruments in nature waiting to be played and listened to.
Very energetic, very creative, very funny.

Whenever I need to send large files to people or groups of people I use http://www.yousendit.com/. It is simple, intuitive, and works well. The only caveat is that files are only available to download from their servers for 1 week.
Now, thanks to the cool people at http://www.workhappy.net/, I have been given choice:
[Update]: http://www.dropload.com/ has a 100MB size limit and 7 days time limit. Guess I won't be using this one fo'sho.
[Update 2]: http://www.dropsend.com/ will definitely have a closer look, since their founder's blog is one of my top reads.
