ClipAngel v1.59 Updated

billon on 29 Jul 2018
  • 8MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 29 Jul 2018
  • Suggested by smaragdus

ClipAngel records all data copied including text, images and files, making it easy to retrieve earlier data where Windows usually allows only one item at a time. The program keeps data even after reboot and can paste in RDP, CMD, elevated windows etc. independently from current input language. Clipboard views include rich text and HTML formatting, filtering by text and details on URL, application and window data.

The program can emulate keyboard input and includes customizable hotkeys. For additional security, the program can block specific applications where passwords may be copied and encrypt stored items.

One does not need the BAT file ("ClipAngelPortable.bat") to start ClipAngel in portable mode, just run the EXE with this parameter- "ClipAngel.exe /p".

The name of the program is not Clip Angel but ClipAngel as it can be seen in program's main window and in "About" window.

Program's icon does not imply an angel but an alien.

@smaragdus
Yes, "ClipAngel" is more correct than "Clip Angel". Over time, I will try to replace "Clip Angel" with "ClipAngel" everywhere I can.

@freakzoid: the "Classic Firefox theme for SeaMonkey" may be what you're looking for: https://addons.mozilla.org/sk/seamonkey/addon/classic-firefox-theme-for-seam/ ...

I use both this and the SeaFox extension (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/seamonkey/addon/sea-fox/) and after some further tweaking, I am pretty satisfied with the results.

freakazoid on 2017-01-08 08:44

I use SeaFox as well, but I just use the Default theme.

Classic Firefox theme for SeaMonkey doesn't really make much of a difference in my layout, except a few icon changes.

Speaking of icons, use the Classic Toolbar Buttons addon to change some of the default icons. It doesn't change the Bookmark, RSS or Tab Throbber icons though.

PDF-XChange is the PDF reader I use, but make sure You configure it

Foxit Reader doesnt have the tools I like that comes with PDF-XChange.

@CornHolio the Gringo agreed PDF-XChange is what I use for anything PDF and have been using for many years. Although I don't mean to take anything away from Foxit cause its good software in its own right. Even thought its been a few years since anyone has posted this is still an important download for anyone looking for a good PDF Reader that's Portable :)

I usually never complain when there is a way to make a program portable but I have just wasted about half an hour updating (copying, moving, deleting, renaming) the native compressed version of Pidgin. And I forgot that the working Facebook plug-in was not included in the package and had to download it separately (but before that I deleted the "unknown" Facebook profile). Why do the developers still keep the no longer working Facebook-XMPP plug-in and do not adopt the working Facebook Chat (purple-facebook) plug-in is a mystery to me. Pidgin developers offer an offline installer (containing GTK+) and GTK+ for Windows yet they do not intend to provide a compressed portable-ready version for Windows. Updating Pidgin is a pain, as it is a pain to make it portable on first run.

MIKLO on 2016-06-30 14:41

WOW I find this really interesting that this software has been being downloaded or at least talked about for 9 years. Some of the first comments talk about this being worthless and a waste of time cuz Pidgin already has a Portable version. There is also talk about Haller wasting his time doing this... hmmm so what am I doing here also wasting my time? lol Anyway in my opinion any and all discussion even on so called "worthless" builds serve a purpose. If nothing else I get a link in my email letting me know that there is something I can go see and waste my time on some "worthless" and not needed software. Aint life great?

Just a clarification, this doesn't work "directly" with Oracle, MySQL or other DB, it requires an ODBC connection set up. If it worked "directly" with those it would connect to Oracle via TNSNames on (default) port tcp/1521 and for MySQL tcp/3306. It does neither.

SmartSniff v2.28 Updated

billon on 25 Jul 2018
  • 135KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 24 Jul 2018
  • Suggested by milentechie

SmartSniff is a network analysis/diagnostic tool that allows you to capture TCP/IP packets that pass through your network adapter. You can view the captured data as sequence of conversations between clients and servers in ASCII mode (for text-based protocols, like HTTP, SMTP, POP3 and FTP) or as hex dump (for non text-based protocols, like DNS).

On Win2K or above, SmartSniff is able to capture TCP/IP packets using raw sockets. This method has some limitations and problems, but it does not require any additional installation. A better way to capture TCP/IP packets is to install the open-source WinPcap capture driver, functional on Windows 98 and later.

No I'm not - a portable program is one that doesn't install files.

@SnowStorm:
It still isn't portable since it wants to install WinPCap

@kermode - it works on raw sockets in winXP SP3, so it is portable for some users at least.

The portable Slimjet-Version (x64) creates 3 main registry-entries:
- HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\FlashPeak
- HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Slimjet
- HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google
...but although these entries contain quiet some stuff, it's safe to remove them. I wrote a small batch:
@echo off
start /wait "" "slimjet.exe"
REG DELETE "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\FlashPeak" /f
REG DELETE "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Slimjet" /f
REG DELETE "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google" /f

WinMend File Copy at version 2.3.0.0 but I think that the extraction procedure is a bit different- in the "{app}" folder there are two DLLs which are the same- "drag,1.dll" and "drag,2.dll"- one of them should be renamed to "drag.dll" and the other should be deleted. Optionally- "checkupdate.exe" and "LiveUpdate.exe" also can be deleted.

Can't you disable it saving temporary files in the options?

opsimathic on 2017-08-12 08:51

@Emka - The first item under OPTIONS look like you can set the utility to delete the jpgs when you exit the program. I have never been very sure the program actually does what it says, so I simply use the second item in OPTIONS to check and delete as necessary. Periodically I use the jpg instead the pdf so I actually find this useful. Bottom line is that I wish the author would clean all this up a bit more, but I find the utility so useful (use it every day almost) that I am prepared to work around the idiosyncrasies.

FileOptimizer v13.10 Updated

  • Released on 26 Jul 2018

FileOptimizer is a broad format file compression tool used to reduce file size without changing the quality, known as "lossless." This is done via wide variety of optimization and recompression tools and techniques. Original files are sent to the recycle bin for restoration in the event the uncompressed version is preferred. A long list of supported formats include audio/video (MP3, OGG, M4A), image (GIF, JPEG, PNG), office formats (DOCX, XLSX, ODT, PDF) and system files (DLL, EXE).

Supports drag-and-drop of files into the window or onto the program icon. Note that by default the program removes metadata for many file types. This information reduces overall file size and protects privacy but is important to some users (e.g. photographers) and file search tools.

A 64-bit version is available within the folder, the author reports the program is functional in WINE, and can be used on the command line.

Great player, especially with a few tweaks. I use Meier crossfeed[1] together with Dolby surround emulation[2]. What this does is it spreads the sound out, as if you're listening to a live performance, and greatly reduces ear strain when listening with headphones (which I do 99% of the time). Other pluses are that it uses my own music directory structure, is very fast (opens in a snap), and it uses windows native look instead of someone's idea of a great skin.

Thanks Guido76. It's still labelled as 8.0.5 but it's a new version and working here too

Emka on 2017-03-04 13:44

It doesn't display some German special characters correctly (e.g. ß), and more importantly, it shows a "buy the pro version" nagscreen upon exit and opens the product homepage in the system's standard browser.

Guido76 on 2017-03-04 14:30

Emka, you're right. Some problems with the French language too. And a very annoying nag-screen, and automatic launch of the browser. Too bad!
I will try to see this with the author, but I suppose that is part of his strategy to force the sale of the Pro version, so there is only little chance to make him change his mind!

Eyes open wide as can be, can't seem to spot the new "IPNetInfo - Source IP" option displayed anywhere...;-(

Anyone else with a better eyesight cares double-checking ?

Eyes open wide, but looking the wrong direction...:-(

The new option is indeed present and working as it should, available NOT under the likely "Option" tab,
but rather from two alternate locations :

• under the "File" tab
• in the context menu

Apologies for this unwarranted agitation.

It's not mentioned but it requires admin rights to install a driver. Does it remove the driver on system reboot? I don't know, I couldn't find out very much information besides "there's no installation required". The developer proclaims "It's so simple to use, you don't need documentation." LOL. So much for that.

Last but not least GPU-Z and CPU-Z just share similar names, they are developed independently afaik.

There are lighter lightweight players with more features, but this is a single executable player that doesn't seem to "cheat" by using OS decoders. It starts instantly and the interface looks very nice (truly minimalistic and not just tiny and clumped up). I'm very much missing a time slider though. That's not a small feature to leave out of a media player. It only has fast forward and reverse, which is not very useful for things like skimming trough mixes.

I like this player, very small footprint, fast open, thanks for a nice music player. I didn't have to do anything it went right to my music folder and was ready to go and on my computer is only 2.04 Mb in size. Works 4ME thanks again.

I agree with User2100. This is a very fast launching player with a very small footprint, but the lack of a time slider is a big issue.
