My Setup

Technical difficulties have forced me to reinstall Windows, which I thought wasn’t a big deal, but it was and no one is surprised. Perhaps more for my sake than yours, I wanted to list all of the things that I wanted to install.

  • Firefox
    • MeasureIt! add-on
    • FireBug add-on
    • Color Picker? add-on
    • AdBlock Plus – advertising blocker
    • Screen Grab add-on
    • Developer tools
  • Internet Explorer Developer Toolbar
  • 7-zip archiving tool
  • Adobe Photoshop
  • Adobe Premiere
  • Thunderbird email client
  • Adobe Reader
  • Google’s Chrome web browser
  • Apple’s Safari web brower
  • Skype
  • Microsoft Office 2003, including the file format converter for the latest version
  • Google Picasa
  • CodeLobster – a pretty nice (and free) PHP IDE

Here are some things that I normally install but won’t this time if I can avoid it:

More coming as I get setup.
