How about a program that installs an installer that installs an installer that installs an installer...

When it's actually the same program installing the same installer over and over after the first one.

Wouldn't that be a virus? A program which just copies itself, eating the computer's resources while not doing anything useful.

No, because it overwrites itself. And you have to make it do it again, with the EXIT option always visible. :P

I actually wanted to link to this in some topic for useful software, but I couldn't find the topic, so kol.

This is actually a nice program for storing account information, with nice security options:

Also these programs I think could be nice:

At least I don't want to forget to check it in the next few days and think they're worth sharing so here they are. #Probablyforgetsaboutitanyway

I used to use the free/trial version of gliffy for making flowcharts for a programming class, and later flowcharts for industrial processes. That might be a useful program (it's online so you can cooperate with other people), but the free thing I linked to may have the same features, I haven't checked that one yet.

aeridani is now officially dissolving all blapis within its borders in a pot of steaming oatmeal to produce faster, stronger, better bla-clones.

Nice. I plan to use this to improve the NS GDP calculation sometime to take into account more trackable factors.
