In a previous blog I talked about free software. I want to take a moment to highlight some of the free software I use and love. Both of my websites SaseShamInc.com and WirelessAutoSwitch.com are run on DotNetNuke which is absolutely great. Of course I have bought modules and skins for my sites but the core platform is free.
I have already mentioned Notepad++; I use this as my primary note taking and typing platform, and occasionally I will edit a script with it. It is very versatile and I have replaced the default notepad with Notepad++.
I do a lot of repetitive typing (typing the same thing over and over again) like answering a quote request or sending out licenses after a purchase and for this I use AutoHotKey to speed things up. I simply type 3-4 letters, hit the space bar and an entire phrase or paragraph is typed out in a second. It saves me a lot of time.
