This morning I decided to watch the Lullabot Drupal 4.7.x to 5.x Conversion Tutorial. Thing is - my work PC doesn't have sound plus it's not ideal to watch a video and work on the same screen - not enough screen real estate.

I have a never ending quest to find good free stuff. Finding free stuff is easy - its the GOOD bit that stumps me…
Often I dont even mind paying for something if its quality, but obviously free is better!
Quality Icons are something I am always on the lookout for and I have been a member of Icon Buffet for a long time now — I'm a big fan of the free deliveries — and, although I've purchased a few packs (Oslo, Oslo Buzz and Soho), they are very expensive for a "bedroom programmer" such as myself.

This morning I am faced with a task that will involve repeatedly dropping and reimporting a lot of data. MySQL has
DROP TABLE and
DROP DATABASE but there is no command to drop all tables or truncate the database.
Over 20 free windows applications under 2mb, courteously of revision3 forum member, lordfoul. Definately a list to look into. Applications range from miscellaneous software, command utilities, system performance tools, and more.
