Software, Free Alternatives to Popular Apps and Programs

I've come to realize that this site isn't as well known as I thought it would be. I am a computer science major and I bring it up in conversation from time to time. Often people don't know of this site. It is extremely useful. I've always been about open source programming. I just believe that the model Microsoft has laid down is not the only way to make money with programming. I'm more of a Linux supporter in the fact they take donations, and advertise. Plus they allow people to make changes and submit them, which is super keeno. Allowing their work to progress at a more optimal rate. Another way to make money with such software is by making premium versions with added features. You may be familiar with certain anti-virus companies such as AVG that take this approach. The idea that you are required to use Microsoft word to make word documents is silly. Or the only way to use your Ipod to the full effect is to install Itunes. I hope I can deter from such believes. I'm actually going to show you two links that I use to find alternative software to mainstream programming. I use these sites to find software that suites my needs as well. You can search by type and easily identify if the program in question will require you to pay for it.

The sites I use are: and

I do prefer alternativeto to sourceforge, but both have their strengths and weaknesses. With alternativeto I really enjoy punching in a program to find software that is similar to what I searched for. Hope this helps you all. Keep up the blogs guys. I really enjoy them. I've found a lot of good information from you guys.

I suggest any strong supporters visit this IRC,

Legitimate, but not so main stream movies.

Well I've decided not to have them all shown on the website due to the work it would take. But luckily my professor allows you to access this collection regardless if you are a student or not. One I will link here is a video of the TSA. A very infamous video.
Do you ever feel like our rights are slowly being taken away?

Here are the compilation of video's/movies:

The videos include:

  1. Truth in Numbers? Everything, According to Wikipedia (2010) 86 min @ SnagFilms

  2. The Internet Is Infected (2009) 13 min @ CBS

  3. Spying on the Home Front (2007) 60 min @ PBS

  4. Google Me (2007) 97 min @ SnagFilms

  5. Wall Street: The Speed Traders (2010) 14 min @ CBS

  6. Growing Up Online (2008) 60 min @ PBS

  7. Digital Nation (2010) 90 min @ PBS

  8. Disconnected (2008) 61 min @ SnagFilms

These videos have kept me from going to redbox or streaming video from netflix lately. And another helpful link is: is what you would expect an online library to be. You will find tons of free books, movies, music, audio, art, etc. Check it out at your leisure. I haven't been bored on my computer since I've found this collection. There is always something I can start lurking. Enjoy everyone!

Also as another note, I am setting up rounds on a daily basis to go to my followers websites and leave comments and check out their ads setup. I am a big supporter. Some of you that are following me I can't find a link to your blog. If you would like to be apart of these rounds be sure to get me your info in a comment or w/e. <3 keep it up guys. I've seen some awesome blogs so far. And be sure to return the favor, l8er all!

Bill Gates and a vaccine solution

I found this video very interesting. Leave it to a nerd to be so frank about a problem involving the lives of others.

If you enjoy information like this I would also suggest checking out No Agenda podcast.

Delicious Dubstep

I was introduced to Nit Grit from a friend of mine. I had never heard of this artist. I believe his genre of music is dubstep. Here is a link to his soundcloud profile. I love starting to play his set and just letting it go while I program or play video games. Enjoy!


First Official Post!

Still trying to decide what to make this site. Maybe a compilation of all the great techno I find. Or just delicious things I find on the internetz. OM NOMNOMNOM!
