Use An Application Launcher

How much time do you spend using your mouse to open programs? I use the application launcher called “Launchy“.

When I combine this with simple .bat files I save boat loads of time and don’t need to use my mouse for much.

Use A Virtual Machine

I have often found that one machine just isn’t enough, especially when testing my code or wanting more functionality. I primarily use two virtual machines.

  • Windows XP – IE6 Testing, Software Installs, Developer Sandbox
  • Ubuntu Linux Server – Scheduled Jobs, Bash Scripting, Build Testing, etc.

There are many virtualization solutions on the market, I use VMWare Player for my needs.
