Thanks guys, you've brought up a couple that I'd forgotten. Notepad++ was one of them.

I lost my audio on my system. Could you or anyone let me know what site I could go to in order to download a free audio program? I hate it. I can't read lips!

What do you mean you lost your audio? You hear no sounds at all? That sounds more like a hardware issue (possibly driver related) than a need for a freeware application.

Start a thread detailing your problem....

Don't worry. I'll figure it out myself. I'm too busy killing bambi at the moment to worry anyway. Thanks.

Well, I'd say if you haven't had sound for almost 2mo, it's probably not that big of a deal to you...

Good luck on the hunting.

Care to explain how that hogs bandwidth?

I've seen other places request that people do that for the purpose of saving bandwidth. I was just trying to be courteous more than anything. But since this seems to be some kind of trick question to elicit an "aha" moment, why don't you go ahead and explain why I'm wrong about that? Here I just thought I was making a helpful list for people with the side benefit of gaining new programs for myself, but apparently I'm being quizzed or something.

Some people just like to be an ass, I wouldn't worry about it. The list will be a useful resource for those who don't know any better, which is the point of the thread.

Links to a site don't consume any more bandwidth than text, other than a little overhead to make them linkable.

Images linked from another website however would consume bandwidth for the other site though.

I just thought maybe *I* was missing something.

Not entirely true. When you link to an ASP page, since is active, certain files have to be constantly sharing scripts cause they were done in JAVA. therefore occupying bandwith not considerable amount but bandwith nonetheless.

A link to an ASP page is not actually going to load that page. So, I still don't see how a link/url/a href to an ASP page is going to consume any more bandwidth to display the URL/link. The consumption of bandwidth isn't going to occur until the user clicks on that link.

err... um wow, no, don't think so.

Anyways, I used my considerable influence with the mean site admin, to have this thread stickied for y'all.

The origin of that practice lies in the Bad Old Days of web design where people would open foreign links in a frame rather than a new window or tab. This would funnel the traffic through the host website. Never mind that the bandwidth usage was do to the host site hijacking the link to the foreign site. Served 'em right.
Anyway "nobody" does that anymore.

He (OP) is introducing people to FOSS* & freeware alternatives. Can't see giving him a hard time for that.

I notice that there is no section for alternatives to Windows :-).

* It appears most items on the list are FOSS [Free & Open Source Software]. I am not claiming to have read or inspected any/all of the software licensing governing any/all of the software or software projects on the list. There. Hopfully that will deter a lot of stupid ******* replies.
