A disk usage statistics viewer and cleanup tool for Windows
WinDirStat (Windows Directory Statistics) is a disk usage statistics viewer and cleanup tool for Windows. On start up, WinDirStat reads the whole directory tree once and then presents it in three useful views: - The directory list, which resembles the tree view of the Windows Explorer but is sorted by file/subtree size, - The treemap, which shows the whole contents of the directory tree straight away, - The extension list, which serves as a legend and shows statistics about the file types. Visit the WinDirStat blog for more up-to-date information about the program. Note: If you are looking for an alternative to WinDirStat for Linux, then you are looking for KDirStat (apt-get install kdirstat on Debian-derivatives), and the alternative to WinDirStat for MacOS X is Disk Inventory X or GrandPerspective.
Advanced PNG optimization program

PeerGuardian - a privacy oriented firewall application
PeerGuardian is a privacy oriented firewall application. It blocks connections to and from hosts specified in huge blocklists (thousands or millions of IP ranges). Its origin seeds in targeting aggressive IPs while you use P2P. PeerGuardian Linux: Actively developed. However the team is very small and with few spare time. Contributors are welcome! Peerguardian OS X: Not developed anymore. We've lost contact with the OS X developer. New contributors are welcome! PeerGuardian Windows: Not developed anymore. It's highly recommended to use PeerBlock instead, which is a continuation of PeerGuardian's development in Windows, with bug fixes and support for Windows Vista and Windows 7. New contributors and/or collaboration with peerblock.com are welcome! PeerGuardian is an open project. Not only is its source code open for you to read, use, and modify - but the project is open for you to join and contribute in any form (code, documentation, bug reports, web and support).
