This may not be about photography...

But I think you are really going to find it quite handy.

Have you ever had to reinstall your computer software, or bought a new computer and needed to install all those indispensable free programs like iTunes, Adobe Reader, Skype, AVG, Firefox, and... well, I think you get my point.

There is a new (and free) site called Ninite that allows you to select from over 65 of the most popular (free) programs and then creates a custom installer so it's all done at once.

A few really cool features include:

1. Ninite installs software with the default settings and always says "no" to browser toolbars and other junk add-ons.

2. Ninite checks your computers language and 64-bit support to install the latest, best version of
each program.

3. Ninite runs on Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7, works in the background providing an unattended 100% hands-free install.

A very convenient time saver.
