Okay, not really new, but new to me.

I was introduced to a utility called Servant Salamander this week by my boss. It’s basically a file and disk utility, but it has plugin extendability. For instance, it comes with the ability to open ZIP, TAR, GZ, and RAR archives. It lets you quickly edit text files, including INI files. It has direct access to the registry and it has a built in FTP client. So, you can upload files directly to a server via FTP as if you were using a regular file manager. Pretty cool. Oh, and there is a free version, but it’s worth paying for the latest.
