I downloaded Net Transport 1.51 back when it was freeware, never
upgraded, and have used it almost every day since. It's one of the most
reliable programs I've ever used. I realize it's not freeware anymore,
but that means nothing to me if I don't ever upgrade ;-)

I will presume that non-freeware types which are discussed in ACF can be
included. Also, some of the programs I use were freeware when I
downloaded them but no longer are (mostly PC Magazine stuff), so I'll
leave them out.

Yup. :) There are lots of essential programs that don't get used every

Every once in a while I'll see a web page with information that I feel I
should archive. I save the website in Firefox, open the page in NVu to
edit it down by removing elements I don't need and then save it.

That's about the only use I personally have for it, since I don't run
websites anymore nor do I create them for others. Never have been
interested in style sheets at all eithyer. 80)>
