I’ve mentioned Simon Haynes web site before, but for his very handy (and free) programs he shares on the site. He’s also an author of the Spacejock series. Blending sci-fi with humor, the stories follow Hal Spacejock and his adventures.
The first book is free. The remaining books are affordable and continue with the character’s adventures.
Some programs I’ve used include yWriter (free novel writing software), and yLaunch (a small program that lets you click one button to start a number of programs). They work exactly as described and his other programs offer the same usefulness.
Check him out.
