Bitcoin wallet Electrum

Bitcoin is to banks what email is to the postal office.
Bitcoin (code: BTC) is a world's first decentralized crypto-currency and a new type of transaction system developed by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2009, who called it a peer-to-peer, electronic cash system. Bitcoin creation and transfer is based on an open source cryptographic protocol and is not managed by any central authority. Each bitcoin is subdivided down to eight decimal places, forming 100 million smaller units called satoshis. Bitcoins can be transferred through a computer or smartphone without an intermediate financial institution. The processing of Bitcoin transactions is secured by servers called bitcoin miners. These servers communicate over an internet-based network and confirm transactions by adding them to a ledger which is updated periodically using peer-to-peer technology. Bitcoin Electrum is a simple to use Bitcoin Wallet. Bitcoins can be mined on your own PC (mining software not included) or purchased from other users.



Virtual Network Computing (VNC) allows you remote access to your desktop from any internet enabled computer with a Java enabled web browser. Use it to operate a computer from across the room, or across the globe, using the appropriate user name and password to gain access.  The remote desktop appears in a local window, and you can use all its functions as if you were sitting in front of it. This is useful if you need to use two computers at once, access your home machine while travelling, or to provide remote technical assistance. TightVNC is an optimised and well supported implementation of the VNC standard. VNC is also cross platform; since there are versions of VNC for Windows, Linux, Unix, and Macintosh, you can get to your desktop regardless of the client platform. 



HTTrack is an easy-to-use off-line browser utility.  It allows you to download a World Wide Web site from the Internet to a local directory, building recursively all directories, getting HTML, images, and other files from the server to your computer. HTTrack arranges the original site's relative link-structure. Simply open a page of the "mirrored" web site in your browser, and you can browse the site from link to link, as if you were viewing it on-line. HTTrack can also update an existing mirrored site, and resume interrupted downloads. It is also available on Linux/Unix/BSD as WebHTTrack.



PuTTY is a Telnet and SSH client for Windows, which gives you command line access to remote servers when you provide a user name and password. This can be useful for web designers who need to manage files and execute commands on a remote machine. Uses include accessing a library catalogue, an email client such as PINE, or performing remote administration of servers. You can adjust the font, colour and size of the terminal window, and save the settings for each server. By starting multiple copies, you can connect to several servers at once or have multiple links to the same server. Also included are utilities for secure file copy(SCP) and RSA key generation. PuTTY supports the latest secure shell protocol SSH2.
