"- Oh, many times the default names of the photos are the same, like 01, 001, etc... can any program also do a mass renaming at the same time?"


Try FlashGet. That is what ... uh... my friend ... uses to download ... uh... educational pictures.

Two not mentioned that I love ....


1/ Adobe Acrobat Professional It allows me to turn any page I am surfing into a pdf doc by printing to the Adobe PDF Printer. Don't know how I would do without it. Come to think of it how do you ? I guess most just bookmark pages, but i have found the pages sometimes are gone when you need the info.


2/ Foldermatch Details differences in files, and folders so you know if your backup is identical or if you are working with the latest version of your data file.

Software I recently added and I find very helpful:


- Windows Desktop Search. I started with Google Desktop Search, but this time the software from Windows is much better IMHO.

- MP3tag: To name mp3 files I downloaded from the net. If I download whole cd's the software takes all information from the net and I don't have to edit the file information anymore

- Burst!, small and simple program to download torrent files. Torrent is currently the fastest file sharing network...

- O&O Defrag. Much better than for example Speedmanager from Norton to defrag the hard disk.

- wbloggar. Free software for to compose textes offline for my blog.


In the net:

- www.blogger.com . Extremely easy to use free host for blogs

- www.flickr.com . extremely easy to use free host for photos
