mikey's essential freeware!! a summary! a recap!

when i re-install, these are the first programs that touch my bare hard drive!!!

and of course... mp3 stuff

computer gif let me see... between work, home, and friends, i've installed new or reinstalled at least 23 computers from scratch. talk about a learning curve!!! and you know what, i still have problems with internal modems. i'll read the directions, i'll do everything by the book; and the darn things put up a fight every time. i love external modems though!! from my experience, "plug and play" truly works with external modems.
computer gif anyway, when i install a new computer, the list below represents the freeware that i MUST HAVE on any computer that i will be working on. they make my life easy and my time with windows9x tolerable! these programs are listed through out my freeware pages. Inquiring minds have spoken, i have heard and i gracefully bow to their presence!  

computer gif lookie here, you can zip files, unzip files, erase files, split files, backup files, look at files, customize windows, backup/restore the registry, and cleanup the appearance of your desktop, with simple to use and easy to understand programs that are freeware! they are small in size, load quickly, task specific, and won't crash your system! come on now!!! why should you have to spend money (sometimes lots of it) on bloatware to do relatively simple tasks on your computer!!! you know, i get completely befuddled when i see commercial programs that do the same things as these freeware programs [and sometimes i get completely befuddled when i stare at my monitor for long periods of time]. anyway, before my mind wanders off somewhere peaceful and idyllic, i hope that these programs prove equally useful to you!

penguin [[[ this last bit i have added 2 years later after what i wrote above.]]] you know, i'm getting pretty crotchety nowadays, and i'm not even that old! you did not ask for it, but i'm going to give it to you anyway... and don't bother thanking me, because i'm tired of having this website suck the life out of me. oh... but you think websites are fun and you want your own website because you have pictures of your pet iguana that you want to share with the world... well save your breath and save your time and save yourself! a personal website will bleed you dry and make your miserable, pitiful existence a living hell, and if you want to see an iguana, read foxtrot. anyway, i've gathered together all programs that i have talked about and put them on one page for downloading. oh, and i used some pretty christmas icons for your viewing pleasure and enjoyment.

mikey's list for essential freeware!

yikes!!! visit my deepwell download page!!

why? because!! that's why!!

okokok... i've got stuff i like there. is that good enough for you!!!

i thought so. heck, it would be good enough for me.

my favorite screensavers are there, and some midi collections, oh skeptical one!


ok now, mp3 me!!!
 
all that my site does is grow!!! which, i suppose, is a good thing. i am now using web space on 3 local isp's. [it's a good thing that my brothers don't want web pages of their own!] so... please go here and there! you will find descriptions[i hope] and these programs to download! oh heck, or you can click here if you are so inclined. jeepers, even if you are not that inclined, you can just as well click here. you know what, nevermind (and i wish i had nirvana mp3s) click here instead. that's right! click here, opps, wait!! don't click this here, click that other here a couple of here's back. no no no, oh shoot, not again!! i really mean this here, not those other here's. those other here's are mere diversions and mean nothing to me. this is the here that has meaning and brought sanity back to my life!! yes, this here and not those other here's is the one and only true here that will bring mp3 peace of mind to you. here! here! {mp3 stuff at my 2xtreme download}
award page link!!! pic words mikey's award from Derek and Denise Thursby!

I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE THINKING... HOW IN THE WORLD CAN I CONSIDER SOME OF THOSE PROGRAMS AS ESSENTIAL!!! YOU SPECULATE THAT I'VE GOT TO BE GOOFED-UP ON SOMETHING SINCE MY LIST OF ESSENTIAL FREEWARE IS QUITE DIFFERENT FROM A LIST YOU WOULD COMPILE. YOU CONCLUDE THAT I'M TOTALLY WHACKED AND THAT I WOULD BE BETTER OFF IN A PADDED ROOM WHERE I COULD NOT HURT MYSELF. WELL... A PADDED ROOM DOES SOUND COZY, BUT WHY DON'T YOU TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK IS ESSENTIAL FREEWARE!!! HEY, I'LL EVEN READ AND RESPOND TO YOUR EMAIL!! HAVE WE GOT A DEAL? EMAIL:mikey{:-)
