Tools Review Needed

I have been adding updates to the Tools column as I find them or you recommend them.  What's really lacking though are explanations of what these tools actually do AND how they apply to the Truly Free Film paradigm.  I know we need that.  But I am a bit swamped these days actually trying to make a few more films before I expire (being a lover of list I have always thought that number 100 we would be a nice threshold to cross -- so I am only a little more than half way there).  So can you help?  

If you can't do a review can you locate one and let us know where to find it?  
How have you used these tools in your process?  
We all have a lot to learn but we will learn it much faster if we share some information.
