So many great programs!

  1. Oooh, rock.. Thanks for the link!! I’ve been unhappy with fetch for the longest time, can’t wait to try these ftp clients out. 😀

  2. You’re welcome. CyberDuck is pretty great – especially when you pair it with something like Text Wrangler (which is free as in beer…). The two together let you easily change files on a remote server.
    I ended up buying Transmit, because of the iDisk support, but really CyberDuck would have been more than enough for most of what I do.

  3. Been using TextWrangler ever since it replaced BBEdit lite. This will help me get my next website off the ground (
    of course now I’ll be that much more distracted from all the things I’m supposed to be doing to actually pay the mortgage.

  4. The program Stellarium (on the second page of free programs) is fantastic!!!
