ESSENTIAL SOFTWARE
There are 100's of sites containing software lists, this is not one of them, instead this is a list of some of the programs and sites that we use to run our business, they are programs or links that we regard as essential and it has taken us years and many thousands of pounds to find and test them, you may find some of them valuable to you.

( Some of these programs have affiliate schemes that we have joined, they are marked with a red square below.)
 
ACDC - Image software
We have used this software for many years and, while I am sure there are other brands on the market that are just as good, this one just feels right.
Analogue - Excellent free software
This is the leanest and fastest set of programs I have found. From a Screen Saver that can play music to a Port Blocker with about thirty other programs in between. Essential software.
Check DNS - Free DNS checking site
If you suspect there may be a problem with your DNS settings, this is the place to go.

Dreamweaver MX - (including Fireworks, Flash and Contribute)
We use these to build and maintain all of our sites.

Epirates - More affiliate programs than you could ever need

Fluid Dynamics Search Engine
It is difficult to describe my admiration for Zoltan Milosevic who wrote this search engine, it is one of the most comprehensive and expertly written software packages I have ever used - and you can try it for free!
Eudora PRO - Email
Because this program is separate from windows it does not seem to have the same vulnerability to being hacked.
Hot Links Pro - Directory
This is a new addition to our list of essential software, it is a MySQL/Perl based directory program which seems to be better than anything we have found so far.

SamSpade - DNS
Free DNS and network tools
Site Sell - Building an E-commerce site
