I believe ideas should become a reality or it will be vanished. I founded ZeroIdeas to make my ideas real by creating smart, small & free software. Most of my applications were because of my needs in my career as IT. I fine that ITs in need to a lot of portable applications that do not need framework and can be preconfigured. For example I used Autorun Detector, Cleano and User Temp Cleaner in group policy or unattended setup with preconfigured registry setting for Cleano and Autorun Detector. Creating application is a kind of hobby more than career so I created a lot of applications that are not one the website.
