James Governor posted another Declarative Living post, including a link to Alex Bosworth's Software I use page on Swik.

For some reason, I thought this was a good idea - I'm bizarrely partial to the documentation of my stuff. Examples include my home network, books I own, my tagcloud. Why? I think I'm motivated by the idea the one day this might turn out to be a useful exercise. I know, the madhouse beckons...

So, I posted up my own Software I use page to give it a semi-permanent home, but have copy and pasted below. I've only included stuff I regularly use, so no one-offs or experimentals. No games or content sites, just services sites.  I would add links but am too lazy.
