cygwin, perl, ssh with X11 forwarding on a single cd. All of it runs from the cd too. Another CD for the toolkit. Get it here.
Sometime around the release of Firefox 1.0, the default use of Emacs-style keybindings in the URL bar was changed. Here's how to put it back right.
Also found a really handy feature for reading RSS/Atom feeds in Thunderbird. I like this much better than the Live bookmarks method employed by Firefox or the sidebar readers available as extensions. This is a really good way to get security announcements and weekly newsletters from the various distributions. Mouse gestures, Conquery, Adblock, and User-Agent Switcher extensions make the whole Mozilla Firefox/Thunderbird suite the winning combo for me.
