digsby logodigsby is a new multiprotocol client for im, email, and social networks. it’s amazingly customizable and will synchronize all your personalizations between computers (e.g. home, office, laptop).

it’s currently in beta (you can use the beta code AskTheAdmin) if you want to play with it.

i’ve been using it for about a week now, and I think this is a winner (i was a big fan of Pidgin up til now).

oh, and it’s really cute.

keep in mind, this is a beta release, but CCleaner is now …

CCleaner can now run from a USB thumbdrive and be installed/run on a computer without a complicated setup process.

If you aren’t familiar, CCleaner is a freeware system optimization and privacy tool. It removes unused files from your system – allowing Windows to run faster and freeing up valuable hard disk space. It also cleans traces of your online activities such as your Internet history. But the best part is that it’s fast (normally taking less than a second to run) and contains NO Spyware or Adware! 🙂

Panda NanoScan is a browser based program the scans your computer for ickies. You install a small plugin the first time you run it. NanoScan works with IE and Firefox.

The quick scan takes about a minute to run. If you want something more thorough, the TotalScan will do a complete system scan.




Small. Fast. Powerful.
