“Slap” and Other Unusual Freeware

Hey, Fred. Take a look at this page of freeware. There are only a dozen or so apps available but many are unique. I especially enjoyed Slap, which may not be exactly ethical but sure could be a whole lot of fun.

Thanks, Anthony. "Slap" is a kind a grayware— it basically lets you counterattack people who try to probe your firewall. It’s not illegal, but does raise the question of whether "two wrongs make a right." Hmmmm.

But there are other unusual programs on the page too— and some could be quite useful. As a whole, the site is rather quirky, but interesting!
