To make up for yesterday's lonely freebie, there's a bumper harvest for today. :)
Simple File Shredder and Kill DiskChristopher Null @ Yahoo answers a reader's question about deleted files in a post titled How to Delete Files For Good. In it, he mentions several wiping programs and of course only the free ones are highlighted here. :)
The first one is Simple File Shredder. Simple File Shredder wipes deleted files from your harddisk and prevents these files from being retrieved using file recovery programs. Simply select a file to shred and Simple File Shredder will erase all existence of it. You should be aware that the company that made Simple File Shredder, Scar5, doesn't appear to be in existence any longer.
The second one that was mentioned is Active@ Kill Disk. Kill Disk differs from Simple File Shredder as Kill Disk is non-selective and wipes all deleted files from your harddisk. It can also wipe an entire partition or harddisk. A situation where this may come in handy is when you're selling off your harddisk, as your private data cannot be recovered by others.
Poster Forge is an easy-to-use software that allows you to quickly create (de)motivational, movie or "Wanted" posters. With a simple point-and-click interface, new posters can be generated with little effort. Perfect for late night demotivational posters creation.
mRemote allows you to manage all your remote connections in a single place. Currently it supports the RDP, VNC, SSH2 and Telnet protocols. The main intention is to have a central place to store all your connections and access them in the same window.
It's in beta now, so you should be careful of pesky bugs, if any.
OutTwit is the offspring of Microsoft Outlook and Twitter. By installing OutTwit, Outlook will gain the ability to download Twitter messages as if they're emails. A godsend if you're a hardcore Outlook user or to fool your boss into thinking you're hard at work. Just a word of caution: OutTwit is still in alpha, so it may do bad things to your computer.
Alien Arena is a free FPS that recently got bumped up to version 6.10. Based on the Quake 2 engine, Alien Arena is focused on online play rather than solo missions. Linux.com recently reviewed it and gave it two thumbs up. Comes in Windows and Linux flavors.

An online task manager, Remember the Milk helps keep your life in order by organizing, managing and locating your tasks as well as reminding you when they should be done. Apparently users like their milk on time as Remember the Milk was recently voted the best to-do-list manager by LifeHacker users.

BlummyMicro Persuasion's Bookmarklets for the Web 2.0 Jedi Master has a nice list of bookmarklets to speed up your day. However, the real gem among all the links is Blummy. The idea behind Blummy is simple - it consolidates all your bookmarklets into a single link (Blummy) that you can bookmark or drag to your toolbar. Need a bookmarklet? Just click the Blummy link you bookmarked and all your blummlets (bookmarklets) will appear. The only downside is you'll need to register for a Blummy account (free) if you don't want your Blummy to expire.
Hope you enjoy today's freebies. This was one of the longest freebie post I've worked on so far.
