Grindstone 2 (Productivity Tool)

www.epiforge.com/Grindstone2

If you frequently find yourself taking far too long to perform different tasks on your PC, this time manager can help. To get started with Grindstone 2, install the software and create a new task. Estimate how long this should take to complete, set a due date and – if the task is something you’re getting paid for – an hourly rate.

When you start timing a task, a stopwatch widget will appear at the top of the screen showing how long you’ve spent on that particular assignment. You can pause, resume and switch tasks as required- There’s also an optional egg-timer widget that counts down the remaining time. If you’re working to a tight deadline, this provides a great way of focusing your mind – as well as adding a little extra urgency! You can set reminders and have the program alert you when a task is almost due or when you reach a certain point -halfway, For example. The software can even detect when you’re not actively using your computer and measures the time spent away – useful for managing jobs that don’t involve your computer.

The interface is very simple, with one tab used for setting the Event and another for specifying the Task. You can even add a password to stop anyone tampering with your settings.
Nudo (Game)

http://herotwin.com/nudo

The aim of this challenging platform puzzle game is to get your tiny character to the exit on each level by moving, jumping, pressing buttons and shifting blocks around the screen. However, you can only move blocks if they are on the same horizontal or vertical axis as you, which makes Nudo very tricky.
MaxMax (Desktop Tool)

This program lets you customize the size of maximized windows, introducing a margin at any side of your screen. You can use MaxMax to store widgets, on the right, or have a dock always visible at the bottom, for example.
