Hello Everybody!

Welcome to my newest blog. Wow! I can’t believe that I’m starting another blog! This is the second blog I have done so far. My first one, The Information Bank, is still being updated so please visit this blog and that blog often.

I’m a white-hat hacker; I try to do things the legal way. I don’t share MP3, I don’t download warez, and I stay away from shareware. It really bothers me when people illegally download software several hundred dollars worth while I’m doing the right thing. In my technical walk, there were often times when I need a piece of quality software to do specific tasks. It is very difficult to find quality, free, and legal software on the Internet. The only place that I accept recommendations is from the anchors of TechTV. Since they are broken up, it becomes even harder to find good software.

So, what is this blog about?
I want to prevent people from having the same aimless experience as I had in freeware. As there is a lack of quality freeware online, there is also a lack of quality reviews of freeware.

Many times, writers get caught up with the proceeds they get from companies to review their software. I’m not like that. I’m getting next nothing from this. My only revenue is from the ads.

Think of this blog as a place to discover expert reviews for superior alternatives to FEEware and illegal file sharing. The motto of this site is “why pay?”

You know that the software that I am reviewing is quality because I actually use it. They won’t be infested with spyware or virus because I make sure that everything on my computer is free of those pests.

Other Remarks
If you are unable to download the software (Ex: Like it is no longer on the linked site) contact me. I may be able to send you one of my copies. Please visit often because I post often! I try to post every two days. Feel free to email me if you leave a tip or suggestion that you want to share. And leave a comment on an entry that catches your attention; positive comments motivate me to continue to post.

    great idea for a site! i could imagine tons of hits on this page. who doesn’t want quality free software, taken the legal way? it’s just a matter of being smart and savy on what’s out there.

    Thanks for your programs and source code and a well designed site. I write 32 bit code, but it has been kind of difficult, but rewarding to do it in assembly.

    Asking questions are really pleasant thing if you are not understanding anything entirely, however this post offers good understanding even.
