ENABLE: The Enhanced North American Benchmark LEexicon package provides a 172,000+ word standardized tournament-level master list, more carefully researched than the so-called TWL98 list. It is not restricted to words of an arbitrary length and it features all the 1998 updates. The ENABLE list has been placed in the Public Domain and is both free and freely distributable. This is the list used by the WORDY word study system, above, and by various online Scrabble® servers and software developers. It is highly recommended that the SUPPLEMENT, an additional list and documentation package for ENABLE, be obtained. [481K]

mortgage loan calculator. Featuring a GUI front end, mcalc lets you instantly see the results
of changing the payoff period or interest rate of a loan. There is even
limited support for prepayments on principal. Saves the amortization
tables in editable and printable ASCII files. This software installs
under Linux or generic UNIX only.
Shred is a secure file deletion
'gadget'. This simple command line utility overwrites every bit of the
target file with 0's and 1's in seven separate passes before unlinking
it. This makes it extremely difficult to recover any part of the
removed file, even using sophisticated mechanical microanalysis methods.
Linux or UNIX only.
