Wireless Network Watcher
Quickly check all the devices and computers that are currently connected to your wireless (and, maybe, wired) network

Wireless Network Watcher is a compact NirSoft tool which can scan your network (wired, as well as wireless, despite the program's name), and report on everything that's currently connected.

For every device and computer it uncovers, Wireless Network Watcher will list its IP address, device name, MAC address, network adapter, and (sometimes) an additional description that may tell you what the device actually is ("Your Router", say).

And the report can be saved for future reference as a plain text, XML, CSV or HTML file.

.As well as being useful for basic inventory purposes, Wireless Network Watcher can also be a handy security tool.

Click Options > Background Scan, then Options > Beep On New Device, and the program will regularly scan your system, looking for new devices (like a neighbour trying to make use of your internet connection, for instance).

And the Advanced Options dialog (press F9) allows you to customise this even further, setting the frequency you need for the background scan, and optionally telling Wireless Network Watcher to launch a particular program whenever a new device is detected.

Version 2.00:

Added option to delete devices from the list (File -> Delete Selected Items )

Verdict:

Wireless Network Watcher is another compact NirSoft tool which delivers just what you expect, quickly providing useful information on everything connected to your network

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
