Useful Stuff is not that useful...

I think Useful Stuff needs a drastic cleanup. Nmap is listed 4 times. Some of the other items just shouldn't be listed. PHP for example is wonderful if your a web designer, but if you're not, PHP won't do you much good.

And then there's the game hacking software... there's way too many listings related to "game hacking" when they all pretty much do the same thing. Same for the Firefox plugins that let you edit a page, seriously just list Firebug.

Maybe it will be easier if I just list a few that I believe should not be included in the list:
PHP.net
Google Earth
WinDirStat
Morpher
ResizeEnable
Turbo
pic2ascii
distrowatch (All the description says is: "Yeah, Find the distro you want :)")
Lepton's Crack (Out of date, Cain & Abel and JTR are superior)
Visual IRC (Last update July 15, 2007)
Instructables (Doesn't seem to be that useful to someone on HTS)

Also the list should be alphabetized.

I agree, the programming languages should be removed from the list.

They also seriously need to be alphabetized.

What may not be useful to you may be useful to others.

But they do need a clean up.
Im off, last year of school and all, I had something longer but char limit fucked that up. So yeah, had a good run here. Thanks for the memories. Thanks to the staff and users.

Best regards, your posting whore,

I also second this motion. there are several dead links in there-- s-tools being one that I am most distressed by... i would have been able to use that quite a lot in response to my ridiculous network SAM. ((s)he's gone so far as to disable right clicking on the desktop and in explorer... still trying to find a workaround... using firefox as an Explorer substitute seems to work well enough, though.)
and, rather than alphabetizing, I would suggest ordering them by purpose, and then in order of complexity from there. so the programming languages would all be together in order from visual basic up to whichever one the person that orders it believes to be the most complex.
so let's review, shall we?
1.clear out dead/obsolete links/programs
2.reorder list in one of two ways:
A. in order of function, then complexity
B. alphabetically. (yes, I did make it non-alphabetical just to poke at all you OCD people :mrgreen: )
3. maintain consistent upkeep of the list (ie, if the program moves to a different location, change the link.)
