My Event Viewer

MyEventViewer is a simple alternative to the standard event viewer of Windows. As oppose to Windows event viewer, MyEventViewer allows you to watch multiple event logs in one list, as well as the event description and data are displayed in the main window, instead of opening a new one.

Also, with MyEventViewer you can easily select multiple event items and then save them to HTML/Text/XML file, or copy them to the clipboard and then paste them into Excel.

htop – an interactive process viewer for Linux

We all have used or use top in Linux, recently I discovered a cool version of top called htop.
htop is a interactive process viewer for Linux. It is a text-mode application (for console or X terminals) and requires ncurses.

More information and download it from the official site here:

You can also see if it’s available in your distro’s repos, currently I’ve found it on Debian’s lenny’s repos.
