Working people make mistakes, some people do never make mistakes! Working people
I work to live, my boss thinks I live to work!

The internet is full of several small and easy programs. Here is a list with programs that i use. Mostly is it freeware or shareware that can be used with a banner. Of course for each program there is a crack or serial to find on the internet, but you didn´t hear that from me.

Looking for: - Tools for PLC code (IEC31161 conversion, step generator, etc)
- Tools for handling symbols (generate and/or catalog/document)
- Tool for easy drawing a PLC flowchart
E-mailI prefer freeware or useable shareware. Open source even better!!

OpenExpert: A program to control the extensions link in windows™ system labyrinth!
Ever had the problem to link an extension to a program, or even to multiple programs? Now i never have found the right methode. In Windows™ v3.1x was the link saved in the windows.ini file. But in the next versions there are multiple positions were the link is placed. This program uses the right click and open with structure. Its easy to use an of course freeware!!
