NiNite - Web page for selecting downloads

If you have purchased a new PC or need to install a bunch of applications on an existing PC you know how time consuming it is to go to the various web sites to download what is needed.  And, some sites are notoriously slow.  Take for instance, installing .Net from Microsoft.  During the installation the .Net installer must go to a bunch of various Microsoft servers to get all of its bits and pieces typically taking 15-20 minutes or more to complete.  Wouldn’t it be nice to have one web site to go to to get all of the latest versions of whatever you require in one go?  Now you can.  On the NiNite site you are presented with a list of all of the more popular applications sorted by category.  You check the boxes on the applications you need and click to download the installer.  The installer has the installation files for all of the applications you chose rolled into one executable file.  When run the installer goes to the NiNite site to get the latest versions of the applications from the NiNite servers.  And the installer can be copied onto and run on multiple PC’s without having to create a separate installation setup.  This makes it simple and a great time saver when installing many applications.  It also saves time for single applications.  Their servers installed Microsoft .Net on a PC in a quarter of the time it would take from the Microsoft site.

GOG - Download games from web site

Remember some of the really fun older games?  We really had fun with 7th Guest, Tomb Raider, Duke Nukem, Myst the Ultima and Zork series to name a few of many.  Some of the games were set up in a DOS environment and will not run very well or in some cases, not at all on current versions of Windows.  Now there is a site that has these games already reconfigured for Windows XP - Windows 7.  They are all DRM (Digital Rights Management) free, contain bonus content and very reasonably priced.  Most are either $5.99 or $9.99.  They also have a number of daily specials for $2.99.

ClipMate v7.5 [1.6 MB] Win XP - Win 10   $34.95

The native clipboard in Windows is great for cutting and pasting a single item at a time, but if you want to move a series of items, or save items for later use, then you need ClipMate! Rather than working with one piece of clipboard data at a time, ClipMate enhances the native clipboard functionality by remembering all items (both text and graphic) that are copied to the clipboard and storing them in "collections" for later pasting. With ClipMate as a Windows companion, users will never accidentally lose a piece of clipboard data again.
