Final Few Bits

Three of my faves were mentioned once (no comment):

= Bitvise SSH

= Recuva (esp for remotes admin)

= Everything (Filename keyword finder)

Several tools I use regularly have no other entries so far:

> StalledPrinterRepair (clears print spooler)

> Cleanmem (for low RAM PCs)

> CAlibre (ereader reformat & database)

> Mozbackup (for FF)

> Xplorer2 lite (dual pane viewer) ... esp useful for selective low-tech backup

> MoffSoft FreeCalc

Thanks for doing this ... it's been helpful to me both for new utilities & confirmation of my existing toolkit. (Probably also pretty useful for the target community !)

Best regards to the whole team.

Re: How ironic

I have been aware of this type of "cooperation" between Canada & USA since 1982. It amounts to a "back-channel" request by one party to have the other make a "challenge" request for a "person-of-interest" ... the 2nd ("challenge") request is the 1st official request & seems to originate from outside the jurisdiction that is "blocked" from wiretapping or whatever by lack of sufficient evidence of probable criminality. Having the request come in apparent good faith from a "friendly country" carries with it the ASSUMPTION that the (seeming) originator DOES have sufficient evidence to make the request ... and off we go !
