Looks like MyDoom's reported Denial of Service attack against SCO does not actually work. (Via Slashdot) UPDATE: Guess that was wrong.

Jakob Neilsen on Information Pollution: "Excessive word count and worthless details are making it harder for people to extract useful information. The more you say, the more people tune out your message."

Yet another handy extension for Firebird users: User Agent Switcher "adds a menu to switch the user agent of the browser. It is designed to provide functionality similar to the 'Browser Identification' feature of Opera and allows configuration of the list of user agents to display in the menu." Released under the GPL. (Found via BlueJAMC's posting on grc.techtalk)

Many thanks to Sture for sending in a link to Steffen's Calculator 1.4, a scientific calculator with tape display. The download size is 241k, and once extracted, the program weighs 447k. While not requiring installation, it does create three new registry keys. Please keep the suggestions coming... still looking for a truly tiny calculator with tape. The built-in Windows 2000 calculator is only 89k.

A.H. kindly found Euromat, a smaller (225k) freeware calculator with tape, more features, and completely install/registry-free. The only issue is that it requires MSVBVM50.DLL, which is 1.29mb, and not always found on older Windows versions. At the moment, this disqualifies Euromat from TinyApps... is it time to change this policy?
The creator of Euromat, Detlev Schaefer, has authored a host of freeware apps. According to his site, each and every app:
1. is FREEWARE

A.H. Banen wrote in to recommend SteelBytes, a site "dedicated to the fine art of hand crafting software." He also offered that, "The utilities spotted in your weblog aren't always that tiny :) Otherwise TinyApps is great!" True, apps like Moffsoft FreeCalc (featured on Jan 4) could hardly be called tiny, but I have yet to find a smaller freeware app that does the same job (virtual tape which can be copied, saved, and printed). If you know of one, please send it in.
A.H. is an admin for Dialect, which he describes as "a tiny development system (script based, but can produce stand alone executables) for the Win32/WinCE platforms.)"

For those browsing with Mozilla Firebird, there is a tiny, RSS reader panel available. Requests to provide RSS feeds for TinyApps prompted an email to Blogger, which replied, "We'll be releasing a syndication feature very soon, for all Blogger users." If this doesn't happen within the next month or so, RSS feeds will be offered through The Feedster Builder.
