@lautrepay

Thanks.


@Checker

Weird. None of us was served the .zip package upon clicking on the green download button. I don't know, maybe your machine already has the Tucows downloader.

@ I am Baas: Yes, that's weird, because I tried it later on other PCs and got only the installer.
Maybe it depends on the browser you use. I still use an old Opera-version (Opera@USB 10.0) for most of my work and there I got the ZIP.
On PC with Firefox 32.0.4, I got the installer

... that's weird!

TorChat v0.9.9.553

smaragdus on 19 Jun 2017
  • 9MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 15 Sep 2012
  • Suggested by garbanzo

TorChat is a basic, text-only instant messaging client focused on security and anonymity. It includes availability (away, lunch, etc), optional profile, and avatar. The program requires almost no setup: just share your randomly-generated username (e.g. "bkmworoidjwxz5l") to other TorChat users. These are easily created and discarded to help maintain anonymity.

The program uses the Tor network's hidden services feature to send messages between peers with authentication and encryption based on public key exchange.

Also available for Linux.

NOTE: TorChat has been out of development for some time and connection may require additional steps. Ricochet is an attempted replacement.

TorChat author has moved the project page.

+++ Feb-05, 2012: This project has been moved to github https://github.com/prof7bit/TorChat +++
Further development of TorChat will continue at github, effective immediately. I have not yet decided what should happen to this project page and repository here at googlecode, for now I will just leave it as it is and just not update it any longer, I will mark all downloads as deprecated and eventually remove the project page, close the issue tracker and maybe even commit an rm -rf to the svn repository.

May be it is worth to update the links.

Yeah, I switched over to this from PStart for two reasons.
It starts much faster (especially if you have a huge --and growing-- collection of items), and secondly it has this pop-up application info which is a BRILLIANT idea so you can make notes on the fly about each item. In my opinion, pop-out notepads in Application interfaces are great. I can't believe all other software programmers don't see it... It's like having a handy personal Help/Note system one tiny click away from your App. Unfortunately I can't give ASuite 10/10 because of one missing feature... It won't allow you to drag in Web Links (URL's) from the browser...Gee I wish I could program,; I would immediately add this feature.

flector on 2010-10-07 15:31

I switched to ASuite after many years as a happy PStart user when the PStart.xml file got corrupted a couple of times.

Great software - simple and effective.

Two small nits:
* If you drag a folder into the app, it will rebuild the sub-tree of items in the folder every time the app is started (which takes time). This is easily avoided though by dragging in a shortcut instead of the folder itself.
* If a URL is dragged into the app from a browser, it's initially titled "Link" even though ASuite knows the URL.

What is the template to add commands to the menu list? Whatever i try it doesn't work.

Anyone knows about other cmd replacement that allows you to save commands?

Midas on 2014-07-04 17:45

JPsoft 4DOS/4NT (currently renamed to Take Command) allows you to set up persistent "alias", just check the documentation...
