I don't like it, neither the interface, nor the way it organizes its database copying all books in another own folder. The best part of it is the powerful converter. I used it mainly because its reader is the only one I know that is able to open LIT files. But tolerate all the bloat for reading a specific format, this is absurd. Does anyone know a decent reader capable of reading LIT files?

@smaragdus, why don't u use MS Reader?

smaragdus: according to ghacks,
http://www.ghacks.net/2008/03/09/how-to-open-lit-files/ your best bet is to convert it. As to an alternative to calibre, I'd try TEBookConverter http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=2626

Text 2 Folders v1.1.2 Updated

Checker on 29 Aug 2014

Text 2 Folders creates folders based on list written in a text file. This contrasts the normal method for creating multiple folders, which is clicking "New Folder" repeatedly and then renaming the individual folders. Just create text document in Windows Notepad or other text program and save it, then run the program to generate folders. Separate folder names by putting them on a separate lines in the text file. For example a text file with the following text:

Documents
Pictures
Music
Video

... will create the directories Documents, Pictures, Music, and Video.

Occasionally, i use a procedure that ends up time consuming anyway:
1. search for desired file search app (usually, regex in filelocator lite).
2. select filenames in results.
3. "export" those filenames to clipboard.
4. paste into batch file, with appropriate text find&replace

¶MD»
and manual edits to create batch commands.
5. run batch

jaden on 2012-08-02 18:04

@granny Are you sure FreeCommander can do this? I know it can create nested folders separated with a slash, but how can it create peer folders? FreeCommander XE supports | to separate folders like TotalCommander, but plain FreeCommander doesn't.

Spews v1.0.5 Updated

Checker on 29 Aug 2014
  • 1MB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by Checker

Spews (Skwire's Process Excluding Wallpaper Switcher) is designed to automatically switch your wallpapers on a configurable schedule. You can add image folders, choose wallpaper options, and check/uncheck the images paths as needed; only checked paths will be scanned for images.

The program will automatically suspend wallpaper switching if it detects any process names you configure in the Exclusions section. This can be beneficial, for instance, when running games that will be disrupted if the wallpaper is changed.

@ misan: If you klick on the little "?"-icon behind "Stealth" ...

What makes an application "stealth"?

For the purpose for this website, "stealth" means when an application is launched, used and terminated properly, it does not leave behind any entries in the registry or filesystem. Certain exceptions are permitted. For example, registry entries that are created/updated by Windows for the application (eg. MRU entries for dialog boxes, DirectX entries for DirectX-based apps), or temp files created in the official "Temp" folders are not taken into consideration. Note: "Stealth" does not mean non-traceability! In fact, it is quite unlikely you can hide your activities on a Windows machine from a capable system administrator.

misan on 2014-01-14 15:31

@checker: OK. IMHO: "Stealth" apps should clean up their temp files for being titled "stealth", this has nothing to do with leaving traces or hiding activities. Even more, "Portable" apps should clean up their temp files, what the "portable" apps I use, do. This "portable" app should not clean up, but it could.

Ganamyde on 2014-01-17 15:41

@Skwire,
You can easily clean up your temp left over, here is what I use...
run, CMD /C CD /D "%a_temp%" & PING 1.1.1.1 -n 1 -w 2000 & RMDIR /S /Q "%script_tempFolder%",,hide useErrorLevel
