If there is one thing that is a great big pain in the ass when it comes to either setting up a new machine or rebuilding an existing computer it is having to (re)install all of your favorite applications. Well thanks to Tim Heuer I can offer you up a possible solution to that time consuming and watch the paint boring process.
I was reading a post of Tim’s very early this morning, or perhaps very late last night, where he was talking about getting a laptop that he had just put a new drive into and the list of programs he considers to be the must have installed on any of his systems. As I looked over the list I saw an entry for something called Ninite and being the curious type I clicked through to have a look.
Now it isn’t very often that something comes along that re-awakens the computer tech in me to the point where I have a .. well .. a nerdgasm but I gotta admit when I saw the Ninite page that is almost what happened.
So what prompted this?
Well just imagine being able to go to one site and select all the programs you need to install from a growing list of programs and then have that all wrapped up into a single installer that you then download and then in one simple process install those programs.
The Ninite selection page
Once you have made your selection and clicked the Get Installer button you be taken to the page with the download link as well as a link that you can share with others.
