Shareware/Freeware gems
 
This is a cool little utility that converts all kinds of units. Its one of those things that you get used to having around and miss it when its not there.

unit conversion tool

Our Rating: http://www.snapfiles.com/images/50star.gif (Excellent)
Convert is the only unit conversion tool you`ll ever need. It includes fast and simple conversions for distance, temperature, volume, time, speed, mass, power, density, pressure, energy and many others. In addition, you can also add your custom conversions. The program comes as standalone file and does not need to be installed - just unzip and run.
Freeware

Thanks for this.
Not only is it great to see some suggestions on freeware, but I've been threatening to make a new software thread, this should be the kick in the butt I need to actually make it..... :)

Just bought a new terrabyte HD and want to be able to do a painless swap with your old hard drive?

Download copying and migrating software for transfering all your data to a new HDD

Migrate Easy has a 15 day free trial that works like a charm!!!! (If it's going to take you more than 15 days, you need to clear up some free time before you blow a gasket.... :) ).

I've tried many of the freeware/shareware HD system tools and this is the first one I've come across that actually worked for transfering over to a new system boot disk.
