If there is one thing that is a great big pain in the ass when it comes to either setting up a new machine or rebuilding an existing computer it is having to (re)install all of your favorite applications. Well thanks to Tim Heuer I can offer you up a possible solution to that time consuming and watch the paint boring process. I was reading a post of Tim’s very early this morning , or perhaps very late last night, where he was talking about getting a laptop that he had just put a new drive into and the list of programs he considers to be the must have installed on any of his systems. As I looked over the list I saw an entry for something called Ninite and being the curious type I clicked through to have a look. Now it isn’t very often that something comes along that re-awakens the computer tech in me to the point where I have a .. well .. a nerdgasm but I gotta admit when I saw the Ninite page that is almost what happened.
