Jock's Software Recommendations

I would like to recommend to folks who come to my site and are interested in Privacy the following $20 tools, plus a couple of others that are nifty.

  1. Intermute

    blocks ads, cookies , referrers, backgrounds etc. It is shocking how many adds some sites push at you. With Intermute you can see exactly how many from whom.

  2. File Shredder

    File Shredder for Windows 95/NT is a small utility that will completely erase the contents of sensitive files and documents that you specify. Normal file deletion only removes a file's directory entry, but leaves the data contained in the file on your disk drive. File Shredder completely overwrites the contents of a file and then deletes it. [Even to NSA standards, or so it is claimed.]

  3. Password Keeper

    Password Keeper for Windows 95/NT is a small utility useful for storing your frequently used passwords. Password information can be stored, edited and printed with this easy to use program. Each password file that you create can contain up to 1000 account entries. You'll never forget a password again with this handy utility installed on your Windows 95/NT system.

    And now a freebie:

  4. Dimension 4 -- sync your computer clock to atomic clocks every time you log onto the internet Get it from

    This is very useful with

  5. GeoClock 8.1 for Windows. Know where the sun is, where it is light, dark or in between. See new perspectives on the globe [maps]. See at a glance the date and time in Tokyo or other places you need to call. Get it at:

So much for my list of endorsements.
