… that simply using them makes me happy.
Firefox / Thunderbird extensions
- Linky – I forget that this isn’t already part of Firefox. I get extremely annoyed when “open selected links in tabs” is not available on a new installation.
- Nostalgy – fast Thunderbird message filing with auto-complete. My new favorite thing.
Of course, I use IE View all the time, but I don’t really get excited about it. It’s not fun like those two. And the bug list beckons…
- MediaMonkey – syncs to my iRiver just the way I want it to. The UI is fast and just what I want. Auto-encodes FLAC to Ogg when syncing. Saves ratings in the file metadata where it belongs. And so on…
- Fortress in Eclipse – yes, I work for SourceGear. Yes, it’s pretty much my job to love this. But I still do, and you can’t stop me.
Actual physical objects
- Melitta Mill & Brew Coffeemaker – makes great coffee, and unlike any other grind/brew combo I’ve seen, it’s actually easy to clean.
