    Rexburg, ID
    VLC for any media files
    Cyberduck for any FTP/SSH/S3 work
    Awaken for alarm clock
    MetaX for tagging movies for iTunes
    iWork 08 for documents
    Handbrake for DVD Ripping
    NetBeans for programming
    Caffeine (just take a look at it to see what it does)

    That's the best of the best in my opinion
