Cygwin...

I downloaded some source for a Cult of the Dead Cow high security network. CDC has always amused me, from back in the Back Orifice days, and I'm impressed with what they're up to now. They've got SixFour, the encryption networking protocol that I want to compile, and a Steganography enabled web browser, very cool. So, I need to compile the code I've got, but it came with a makefile, and I don't feel like beating around with Visual C++ to get it compiled right. I have the worst time with that. So, instead, I'm installing Cygwin, which is essentially a linux API for windows. It comes with a version of GCC, and all that good stuff. Plus, it has some *nix apps that can be handy.

That'll be really handy to have.
