So, my computer decided to be evil and corrupt a root file the other day (due to a lovely power outage and improper shutdown) and now I need to reinstall everything that I had on here.

The problem is, I tend to forget about various programs I had or situations where I'd need programs, until I find myself desperately needing them.

So, in order to try and help that, I come to you, fellow Matazonians, to help me in my search. Take a look at various programs you have that you use every day and may take for granted, and let me know here.

So far I've gotten Firefox and AIM. Next on the list is mIRC.
