POP Pager.

POP Pager. Forward email to your cellphone. Free. Do note that this is a .nu address (and I’m not 100% happy with .nu domains for obvious reasons). So caveat emptor, eh?  With this easy to configure mail-to-SMS/paging gateway you can get mail on your cellphone (as SMS message) POPPager is a FREE (for 1 user) application that runs on Win9x or NT 4 and that will monitor a POP3 mailbox.

Free RSS thingy.

Abilon. Yet another free RSS reader. Isn’t Abilon that lawless town in old John Wayne movies? Or is that…?  Abilon displays headlines from RSS (Rich Site Summary – Really Simple Syndication) Channels in an easy to read format. It is small (about 500 kb), fast, and free. Adding new channels is as simple as right-clicking and entering the address of the feed.

Plug and play.

The Kjaerhus Classic Series of VST plug-ins are free software effects available for anyone to download. Should work with most good music sequencers or other VST compatible progs, and save you a bundle on hardware. Nice one!  The goals were simple – make a series of VST plugins that works, feels, looks and most importantly sounds as good as a professional hardware unit. Also, keep it simple and easy to operate. In fact, anyone who knows their way around the…

SyncBack. Freeware backup program that offers a whole heap of features for a world beating price.
