While I was in the process of reformatting my computer, doing backups, and sorting through my files, I just happened to come across this; http://freenew.net/
I haven't used it yet. I've just downloaded the executable to run it after my reformat tomorrow, but if it works as advertised I must just say that I'm.. I'm.. I'm crying manly tears here. This will be a huge help, since I regularly forget from one moment to the next what I was doing and keep forgetting to do stuff I've planned the day before. Not this time. Not this time.
What it seems to do is to create a custom .exe that will download and install all the programs that you've selected beforehand.
Just thought I'd share. This may be something everyone already knows about. Don't hang me if it's some wierd malware site or something.
