I agree with dot that there are some nice options, and in addition, the list is in text format, and I have it set to autocreate CSV format so I can look at all, say, upcoming Canadian elections (I have all kinds of things in mine) and import into other programs. The author revisits most of his tools about once a year, and for utilities that is pretty good. After over a decade, I am still using Reminder.

Changelog: Version 1.30

Since the Readme.txt file "here and here" pointers lead to...never-never land,

the following real pointers might perhaps be more helpful in clarifying the added fields gist :

Nice little player. The website has a page with plugins, but it's slightly misleading. The "Qmmp Plugin Pack" download directs to the player itself, and the others require building from source/installed dependencies.

Realist on 2016-10-06 16:25

Why do we another music player and that too which looks like WinAMP?

MIKLO on 2017-01-15 17:15

@Realist, I believe the more we have the better they will all get or they go away, after all competition makes the world go round. I would agree if all are the exact same then it is a waste, but coders usually try and add something more useful that the last version doesn't have. Just my thoughts. :)

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?

shnbwmn on 2016-07-22 12:25

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.

and a quick FYI about the comment on not having to pay for CSS editing, the "free one' in the program seems to be somewhat of a bad joke. It is a beat-around-the bush feature that lets you do something you wouldnt expect it to, and other features are just plain missing.. they may be there buried somewhere, but to a user who just installed it and is testing it out, it isn't very convincing, I did manage to find some of the features after an hour, and you shouldn't have to go into code to correct something that the editor did wrong. The spell checker seems like instead of correcting words it replaces the word and leaves the misspelled word right next to it. Like I said, maybe there is some option buried but to the new user of the product, it just doesn't do it. I ended up just writing my own simple WYSIWYG webpage editor in a few days and have the functionality i need... sheesh

webfork on 2013-11-05 22:13

osirisgothra: Every WYSIWYG editor I've worked with requires that I go back at some point and fix something in the code that the macro editor side broke. In my experience so far, BlueGriffon does some things better, some things worse. As to the CSS and rigidity, I agree, but the truth is that this is the direction Adobe went with Dreamweaver and I think BlueGriffin is trying to be an OSS alternative to that program rather than a normal WYSIWYG.

Solved: the download on the portable freeware site does not include a file "todolist.exe.manifest" that is required to run on XP. If you have an existing earlier version of todolist, it will have a file "todolist.exe.xp.manifest". Dan the developer advises to rename that to "todolist.exe.manifest". Seems to work.

I really didn't like not being able to hit "enter" and have the message send. You can configure this behavior under options - Message sessions - General tab - Sending messages - checkbox "Send message on 'Enter'"

If that seems like a lot to go through to configure something fairly basic, that's kind of how this client works: a little confusing with a trade-off of intense customization.

The developer changes the name of the program frequently- FolderSynch, Folder Sync, FolderSync, FolderSync Wpf, which is visible even in the screen-shot above. The update check on program's start cannot be disabled, which is very annoying for me. The new, so called Wpf versions look worse than the last non-Wpf version (FolderSynch 1.0.0 Build 110). In the latest release there is also a non-working 'Register' button- it seems the developer is preparing a commercial version (some of his program already require a license to unlock features or to remove advertisements or nag screens). In short- in my opinion Folder Sync is not changing for the better.

Love this program particularly for infrequent or bad internet connections. Helps restart, resume, and find the best connections for downloads. I also use it for the occasional Linux or other big file distribution torrent.

This is one of the NirSoft utilities, and trustworthy. It is flagged as malware as it clearly can be used for malicious reasons ie extract passwords for nefarious purposes. However, it can also be used for good reasons ie extract passwords for recovery purposes etc!
I have learnt to temporarily disable 'real time protection' in AV software when downloading/moving/using these utilities.
I also use them as a simple test of AV software effectiveness; if it doesn't pick up these utilities as potentially malicious, then the AV software is clearly useless!

You might like to re-check EagleGet's portable status.

On my system, a registry search for "eagle" produces no hits, regardless of the status of auto-update check in EagleGet|Configurations. Older versions also put the file EagleGet.sys in the System32 folder, but that behaviour also seems to have been corrected.
Hope this helps.

CintaNotes is a tag-based, text-only personal notes manager for collecting bits and pieces of information such as thoughts and ideas, article excerpts, quotes, research etc. A global hot key (by default Ctrl-F12) clips pieces of text from other applications such as web browsers or any local program. The window title becomes title/subject of the note and the highlighted text selected becomes the body.

The program is useful to quickly take down and tag any piece of useful text that you come across and quickly organize by date, keywords, title, link and note size. A search tool searches the entire database with search keyword highlighting.

Note: Some features limited to a "pro" version include tabbed sections, pasting notes into other apps, hierarchical tags and multiple notebooks.

@ vmars316: Alternate (Data) Streams are a data structure for holding additional structured data within a file in addition to the main data.
The Windows NTFS file system allows so-called Alternate Data Streams (ADS). With this function, data can be stored invisibly tied by the user to a file.

goodsignal on 2016-10-17 17:54

Dropbox had a bug a while back (https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Syncing-and-uploads/com-dropbox-attributes/m-p/63351) and polluted every file with an alternate data stream. Any copy action thereafter from our NTFS drive to a thumb drive (usually FAT32) was interrupted by a warning, "Are you sure you want to copy this file without its properties?" Very annoying! AlternateStreamView quickly and easily fixes the problem, as discovered here (http://superuser.com/questions/814312/is-it-possible-to-remove-the-are-you-sure-you-want-to-copy-this-file-without-it)

This app was worth installing just for the ability to disable the minimum width restriction on vertical taskbars. Now it's nice and narrow.

Right-click the tray icon and select 'Advanced Options', then set the 'no_width_limit' value to '1'.

The link has been updated to the website itself. For apps where the download link changes with each version, you're not supposed to direct link to the download (part of the PFC guidelines on the page: "Do not enter the direct URL to the file if the filename is version dependent, or the author forbids external links. For such cases, enter the URL to the download page instead.") Otherwise, you get the old version when the app has been updated but the PFC listing has not.

Listary v5.00.2843

billon on 15 Oct 2017
  • 8MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 14 Oct 2017
  • Suggested by Jacob125

Listary is an enhancement that allows you to quickly search almost any listing in Windows by simply typing your search terms. The program will pop up a small, semi-transparent window in Explorer windows (including open/save dialogs), Task Manager, Registry Editor and even directly on your desktop. The program works with almost any application with a system-generated list.

Although some programs will automatically jump to the first letter you type (a find-as-you-type feature of Windows Explorer), you must type quickly for more than one letter and cannot see your output. Listary brings a long-time feature of Linux to Windows, letting you enter whole words and type slower with automatic changes. Additionally, it allows wildcards and has the ability to edit your input with immediate results.

Advanced features include hotkeys, autocomplete, blacklists, favorites, a customizable window. Note that the program contains many "pro"-only features, but the program is very functional in its basic version.

TeraCopy lets you copy or move files at the maximum possible speed. It uses dynamically adjusted buffers to reduce seek times, as well as asynchronous copy to speed up file transfers between two physical hard drives. When an error is encountered during copying/moving, TeraCopy will automatically retry and skip the files that cannot be transferred instead of aborting the entire operation. It also shows failed file transfers and lets you recopy only problem files.

Once the destination directory is selected, files can be dragged-and-dropped onto the window, even while a transfer is in progress. Once files are transferred, the Verify option uses a CRC check to see if files are identical.

Then I used this program again and everything has looked normal ever since then. So I think this program may have helped me to stop some hackers or malware. All of my own internet activities and programs work normally so I really do think this program helped me stop something bad from happening.

Attention! Version 4.50 changes the ini-file to unicode (UTF16 LE) - as a side-effect the dropdown-zoombox in the menu (if activated) doesn't show up the percentage-steps any more, only %%. You can still type in the desired percentage and press enter, but the predefined steps don't work. This sure will be corrected, but if someone can't live with that: stay with V4.44 until next version.

Simple x264/x265 Launcher is a lightweight front-end for the x264 H.264/AVC as well as the x265 H.265/HEVC encoder, based on the Qt toolkit.

Optionally you can also use 64-Bit Avisynth, which is still considered experimental, if desired, as well as x264's built-in LAVF/FFMS input.

Caffeine prevents an automatic screensaver or going into standby/sleep/hibernate, useful for presentations or playing video. It works by simulating a keypress once every 59 seconds, so your PC thinks you're still working at the keyboard. Double-clicking the program icon "empties" the coffee pot and temporarily disables the program, while doing this a second time re-enables it.

@Napiophelios: Likely won't work for WoW or any other network game produced after about 1999, because they look for game activity (positions and actions and other more clever things) for determining idle players, which has nothing to do with your computer sleeping or screensaving. Pressing F15 (which is what I assume this program does once per 59 seconds) has nothing to do with gameplay so it won't reset any idle timer on the server side.

is there a way for this program to read an Outlook (not outlook express) address book listbox of type OUTEXVLB? I do not get anything at the bottom of the screen. I have tried it with around 200,000 items and with about 800 items and nothing shows up. Is it because this program does not support this particular listbox/window???

Thanks for the great tool!

v1.50 now has a drag and drop button taht you drop on the window you want to see the text from. It makes this very valuable the tool so much easier and intuitive to use. An excellent upgrade, imo.

Unfortunately, it still does not seem to handle Outexvlb type listboxes.

Both Nirsoft's TCPLogView and Sysinternals' TCPview offer about the same set of functionalities.

However, the alternative Sysinternals' TCPview might have a slight edge in its skilled use of color background for highlighting DYNAMIC TCP connections activities:

It feels nimbler at popping up a log line (on a green background) for each transient new active connections and at briefly flashing an existing log line (on red background) before its connection is torn down.
