Useful programs

OK, so everyone here knows that I like Pari (link in my .sig!), but surely there are other good programs out there. Any suggestions or personal favorites?

I wanted to add two that no one else is likely to add, even though I don't use either. GMP is an excellent bignum library, for those inclined toward programming. UBASIC is an ancient programming language with amazing number theory capabilities built in.

So, what does everyone else use? Google calculator? Slide rule? Fingers?

Also, I'd really like to know what programs people use for
  • Finding small factors (elliptic curve method?) -- I don't have a good program![/*:m:1w8pmx4r]
  • Finding big factors (SNFS/GNFS) -- I use msieve[/*:m:1w8pmx4r]
  • Proving primality -- I use Primo[/*:m:1w8pmx4r]
