Unknown known.

Unknown Devices. Pretty useful Windows freeware tool if you ever come up against one of the dreaded, ‘Windows cannot install the driver for this device’ type messages.  Unknown Devices helps you find what those unknown devices in Device Manager really are. By checking Device Manager for unknown devices and extracting information from it, this program attempts to figure out what the device is. You might not have to open your case or look up random numbers off of PCI cards…

Footy fever!

Well it’s almost time once again for the frenetic football thrash they call the World Cup and for those who want to get more involved this year I highly recommend Nigel Thomas’ Ltrack program. It’s a little Windows freeware package which lets you track all the goings on in a football competition, including player and team statistics, league and ladder fixtures and even referee performance.

Just fire it up, point it at your directory (or even a whole disk) and it will play the MP3s. It even has an audio enhancer. ‘Triffic, this is destined to become my standard player as I’m tired of bloatware. Is this the smallest MP3 player ever? MP3DirectCut is an MP3 manipulation utility.

Found a nice little utility yesterday. Cures that niggling problem with the Caps Lock triggering when you’re typing. You know so youR WORDs suddenly go large. First Cap by Fabio Falsini is a great little freeware product which lets you turn Caps Lock off (and Num Lock and Insert) at will as well as other stuff. Neato.

I remember looking at a bit of software called Sensiva a while back which let you control your computer using a nifty method of on screen commands with your right mouse button. It was very cool, but didn’t work brilliantly and seemed a little too big to hover around in memory. Now I’ve just come across this neat little alternative freeware called Stroke-it! which does it better, is smaller and doesn’t cost the $19.95 of Sensiva. It’s the first cool…
