Search Everything is a great little utility for finding files on your computer. It only indexes the file's name. So the indexing is really quick and unnoticeable. I find it useful several times a day. Even if I know where a file is Search Everything will often get to it quicker than using Windows Explorer.

SynPhony is a browser-based program that facilitates the rapid production of literacy materials in alphabetically written languages. Being browser-based means it can be accessed from a web server OR your personal hard drive. In both cases it will display in your browser. SynPhony allows the computer to dynamically find language material that corresponds to the reading level of any particular stage in a literacy curriculum. It is unicode aware and can handle many different writing systems, including syllabic scripts. To date SynPhony has successfully been implemented in 12 different scripts (Arabic, Bengali, Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics, Cyrillic, Devanagari, Ethiopic, Hebrew, Kannada, Latin, Tamil, Telegu, and Tibetan) and almost 2 dozen languages.

Random Sound Inventory is a program that generates consonant and vowel sound inventories consisting, respectively, of random sets of IPA symbols. It also generates sets of hypothetical words that consist of random sequences of these symbols, with no constraints on their combinatory possibilities. It is intended as a teaching device to introduce the subject matter of phonology by illustrating how real language sound systems differ from simple collections of sounds with unrestricted patterning. For comparison purposes, the program can display phonemic inventories from four real languages: English, Korean, (modern) Hebrew, and Thai.
