A must have piece of software for any Windows user:

If so, this blog entry with 11 Free Twitter clients may be interesting to you.

This post has similar information, specifically for Linux: "Six Twitter clients for the Linux desktop and one for the road".

Personally, I use the web interface when posting, and/or Twitterrific (available for the iPhone or as a desktop Mac application.

Premiere Elements 6

I had to work intensively with Adobe Premiere Elements 6 last weekend. It became a horrible experience since it crashed often.

Obviously, I had to find an immediate solution. After a lot of google, more gray hair and frustration, I found the bug: Microsoft's Visual C++ runtime is pure fertilizer and must be updated.

Download and install these two files, but mind the fact that the smart people of M$ named them... Exactly the same. So change the names or save to different folders. Anyway, applying these updates solved my crashing problem in Premiere Elements 6.

I installed both just to make sure there are no conflicts and both are up-to-date. Should the links stop working because of M$ changing them, just google for their names and get them from Microsoft.com.

If you're looking for the best and least expensive Photoshop & Premiere you can get, check this great bundle by Adobe.

All brand and product names, logos, etc. belong to their respective owners, blah, blah, blah...
