Free ASP.NET Progress Bar Control for Long Running Process: Essential Objects Progress Bar

I came across Essential Objects' Progress Bar control, which just so happens to be free. It allows you to have a nifty progress bar for any ASP.NET long running processes. Very handy.

Free .NET Profiler: EQATEC Profiler

Need a solid, easy-to-use .NET profiler? Check out EQATEC Profiler.

I had to track down a recent DotNetNuke issue and EQATEC Profiler allowed me to do so quickly. Note, I had to use these instructions on how to make it work with ASP.NET.

ManicTime: Track Application Usage Statistics

I'm exploring the concept of application usage tracking on my machine to better understand what I do everyday. In doing so, I ran across ManicTime. I'm going to give it a try and see what it yields.

UPDATE: Love this tool. After two weeks of use, I'm able to generate pretty pictures and statics of my usage. It even tracks web site usage. This has been handy as we use Atlassian's Jira (web based tool) for our bug tracking.
