    Personally I moved to torrents. Peer to Peer is taking more and more heat now. Its tougher to search for specific songs but easier to download a discography of any artist you want. I just downloaded the Bob Marley discography from the pirate bay and its awesome. I've been listening to Bob all day today, lol.

    I'll do a little research and see if there is any good peer to peer left though.

    Edit: One other thing I do is convert youtube songs into audio which works great.

    http://www.video2mp3.net

    Just find whatever song you want, copy the link, paste it into the bar on the converter site, then download it to your computer.

    Stellarium is an opensource planetarium and it is awesome. It can simulate the night-sky from any location on Earth and allows you to travel backwards and forwards in time. You can zoom for a closer look at planets, moons, nebulae, galaxies, and other deep-sky objects.

    Celestia is an opensource 3D simulator that allows you to explore the universe. It is another great program!

    Mouse Without Borders - control multiple PCs

    I have not used this free tool from The Garage at Microsoft but it looks interesting and useful for folks who wish to control multiple Windows PCs from one mouse and keyboard. Click here for the blog entry and download about Mouse Without Borders most of which is quoted below.

    Along the same lines, here is a very useful program called VMWare (if you fancy dual boot and/or using different OS at one time) to run just about any other OS, from your desktop. It runs as a completely different OS from your system but since its essentially just a file on your current OS, its easy to install and delete without causing damage to yours. Which means no need to back-up anything when you install/delete whichever OS you want to use. (This is very useful for Win7 users that still like Windows XP. It will run Windows XP a lot better than if you actually run XP as your normal OS).

    Simply download VMWare and then either use a boot disk or an ISO image of an OS an voila, you're running two OS on one system without creating a dual-boot and without worrying about backing up files.

    Also wanted to mention a nice website I've found. Its useful after you to a clean install of your OS or if you just need a few programs. Ninite is a website (more specifically a download tool) that allows you to create a package of programs that you want on your system. So instead of going to a ton of different sites after you do a clean install, you can go to Ninite and download a bunch of the programs you want all at once, from one website.

    Firebug - add-in for Firefox, lets you sneak a peak add any website code (html, css, javascript) and has some pretty awesome features. Downloaded it the other day and highly recommend it.

    Portable Apps is a great little piece of software.

    You download it to a USB or external HD and you can install all kinds of portable apps including games, malware protection, hardware diagnostics, zip software, media, burning, flash, java, freemat (for programming), and a bunch of other stuff. It's great for PC technicians that fix a lot of computers. You can check a clients PC without downloading a thing to their computer.

    You can also add Music, videos and pictures to it as well. The program takes up very little room on the desktop, it looks very similar to the start menu on the desktop.

    Does anyone know where I can get a version of the Final Draft software for script writing? It is rather expensive.

    Thanks in advance.

    Well most solutions to your problem are illegal. So I will not suggest them, however, it is certainly a route you can choose.

    To go the more legal route, try a free software that is similar.

    Try something like Screenwright(R) for Openoffice.

    I've been using this 3d animation program and its unbelievable how powerful this thing is considering its open source. If you're into 3d animation check out www.blender.org. There is a big learning curve but I've been doing ok and I'm a complete newb to 3d animation.

    I'm currently box modeling the Gator logo just for fun and see if I can create a 3d image with it. Should be interesting. I have this so far...

    Lot of work to be done but hopefully I can figure it out.
