05. STUFF ORGANIZER. As the name implies, this application lets you keep tabs on thousands of items in your collection, whatever it is. It can unpack from compressed files such as .zip, and clean up unnecessary files afterwards, allows for filtering and sorting, tagging, drag-and-drop, sorting to multi-level categories, and more. Download free at http://stufforganizer.sourceforge.net/ .

06. DRAW A STICK MAN. It's rather juvenile and a time waster, but it's fascinating how they do this stuff at http://www.drawastickman.com/ .

07. VIRTUAWIN is a virtual desktop manager that lets you organize applications over several desktops, as many as 9. Download free at
http://virtuawin.sourceforge.net/ .

08. WINDISK promises to clean your files, folders, and disks on a schedule you set or whenever you call it up, to restore your computer "so it feels like
new again." Download free at http://www.windisk.com/p/products/home .

09. TV-TUBE covers more than 2,000 online TV channels worldwide. No registration or download is required but in use, I found this service somewhat problematic. Navigating the site is difficult because of the excessive advertising and links to other sites. Most of the available channels are foreign and will hold little interest unless you are multilingual. Finally, I found, at least on my system, that premium channels such as HBO and Showtime were, in fact, available on the site and free; however, they required downloading viewers such as MPlayer that may or may not be available on your computer. Your results, of course, may vary, and you can check TV-Tube out at http://www.tv-tube.tv/ .
