A documentary on Aaron Swartz and some of the major events he participated in.
A straightforward GUI text editor.
I really only use it because I can pipe text into it.
A man wakes, reconstructed as a cyborg, and finds himself hunted by unknown forces.
A fucking astonishingly great movie! Fast, bloody and fun. It's effortlessly hilarious, and without being a comedy.
I was initially rather annoyed at the found footage-style shaky camera, but it got so intuitive so fast that it really helped me get into the character and movie. If you like bloody non-stop action movies, definitely give this movie a chance.

This is on my list of books to re-read.
A book on the history of the demoscene.
This is on history and itself has become a collectable piece of it. I bought and read this years ago.. probably in 2007 or thereabouts.
- aka Freax volume 1. - A brief history of the computer demoscene
- by by Tamas Polgar, aka Tomkatz / Madwizards

A sort of "Art of War" on the the topic of the more recent so-called "Social Justice Warriors".
Highly recommended, though not necessarily because of its topic. With history and opinion, and descriptions of tactics and rhetoric, it's a fascinating set of opinions, positions and stories. I didn't understand half of its references, but this sort of book reveals a kind of contemporary philosophic writing that I find fascinating.
I read this just after Free Speech Isn't Free (2016 book), by Roosh V, which I think helped a lot.

A tool to put a LiveUSB ISO onto a USB stick.
Simple and does the job.
aka LinuxLive USB Creator
An fast, moderate-sized and extraordinarily cheap drive.
Refurbished, but these seem to be in good shape. Don't expect the intel manufacturer's warranty to have much, if any, time left. You're leaning on newegg, and then perhaps your credit card's insurance policy, if it has one.
A straightforward and extremely powerful windows configuration tool.
Where configuring Windows involves digging through various applications and their menus, and editing the registry, by placing all the important things in one easily-navigated tool, configuring Windows becomes easy with this tool.
