Wood's SoftCircuits Programming provides Visual Basic and C++ consulting
services. SoftCircuits' web site at http://www.softcircuits.com has lots
of example programs and free utilities that can be a boon to programmers.
A brand-new offering on his site is Cygnus 2.0, a very powerful and
inexpensive hex file editor. In my opinion it is the fastest and
easiest hex editor available anywhere! Features include MDI interface,
multi-level undo & redo, extensive drag & drop support, blazing fast and
flexible search, search and replace, file compare, delete and insert
characters as easily as you can in a word processor, edit files up to
available virtual memory (up to 2GB), much more.

SnagIt Screen Capture and Sharing
All the screen capture and editing functionality
you’ll ever need, in one simple and powerful program
Is my choice for Image Capture for documentation and
webpage construction. SnagIt is a utility program
that I would not be without. Not only does it make
my job easier, it allows me to do a better job!
Click the image above or go to the
website to learn more, and to download a working demo
version. While you are there, take a look a
Camtasia Studio Presentation.
Using SnagIt, you can select and capture anything on your
screen, then easily add text, arrows, or effects, and save the
capture to a file or share it immediately by e-mail or IM.
Capture and share an article, image, or Web page directly from
your screen. Or, capture and share any part of any application
that runs on your PC. The version that I am using is
Snagit 9, and frequent updates that add new features are
terrific, and free! I've never seen a bug, so these
updates, AFAIK, address making the product better, not fixing
What You Can Do With SnagIt
Share Exactly What You See on Your Screen
Combining images with text is a much more powerful way to
communicate than using text alone. This is why SnagIt captures
are such an effective way to get your point across. Capture
exactly what you see on your screen – an image, an article, or
part of a Web page. Then, email it right from SnagIt to a
colleague, technical support, or even your best friend.
Give Your Presentations More Visual Impact
With SnagIt, you can easily add company logos or other
branding elements to your PowerPoint presentations to give them
a custom, professional look. You can even add short video
clips of onscreen activity to training presentations.
Instruct Others With Quick "How-To" Illustrations
Using SnagIt, you can capture any button, menu, icon, window,
or other part of any application that can run on your PC. Then,
use arrows, captions, stamps, cursors or text callouts to
illustrate the steps you want the reader to follow or concepts
you want them to grasp.
Capture and Edit
With SnagIt, capturing anything on your screen is a few
simple clicks away. At the same time, SnagIt is powerful enough
to handle all of your custom capture needs.
With SnagIt’s powerful Editor at your fingertips, there’s no
need to open another application to add the finishing touches to
