disposable e-mail account

If you are bored of giving your e-mail address to lousy forums/websites so that they can fill your inbox with lots of spam, then try mailinator which offers a disposable e-mail service. Give a e-mail to the lousy website when you sign-up and then go to mailinator and check your e-mail (you don't need to log in with a password). Do the confirmation thing through the e-mail and voila! You didn't have to give your usual e-mail for a stupid confirmation of a stupid website/forum.

reprogram your mouse buttons via x-mouse

x-mouse I have a Logitech cordless optical mouse. I recently tried to reprogram its buttons for new functionality, but Logitech recommends the usage of native windows vista mouse drivers instead of offering a more functional one, so here I am, googling for an application that'll give me the desired functionality. Then, I found X-Mouse. It has every option I need when I tweak my mouse buttons and a very low RAM consumption. You can change the functionality of left, right, middle, left thumb, right thumb button into one of the offered functions (like "close application", "copy/cut/paste", "send a custom keystroke sequence", "launch any application", "double click" so on) . I highly recommend it.
