Would you buy this?

FireDaemon Pro allows you to take your PC a step closer to a server (or further configure your server) by running programs, scripts or batch files as Windows services.

Windows generally handles services (or daemons) as behind-the-scenes applications that typically run all the time without a window. With Firedaemon Pro you can run a program in much the same way - so that it automatically restarts if it crashes, for instance.

FireDaemon Pro is an advanced tool for those familiar with Windows services who need a high degree of control over how and when a program runs.

If that's you, you'll find a host of options for your created service, such as defining a time schedule for your service, choosing other dependent services that should be started before yours, and choosing actions to perform (such as restarting) if and when the service shuts down.

You can edit and manage your created services in the FireDaemon interface, and also stop, start or restart it in the Windows list of all services. The program is free to try for 30 days, and costs $57 to buy.

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/HP Spectre x360

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
