Thought I'd ask: does anyone know how URL Monit@r compares to Xenu Link Sleuth ATM? (

tactictoe on 2016-03-12 02:38

Hi Midas. To answer your question. The comparison is not really a good idea. These softwares have two different goals in mind with a common task to achieve their respective goal. Xenu Link Sleuth ATM crawl a site given a URL and perform a complete site URL check with complete report on demand. And it does it very well. URL Monit@r on the other hand does also a verification of URL but its goal is bookmark managing whatever come has URL captured by the clipboard and it does its task very well. Verification of URL here is on a case per case or thru a given list or complete URL list via the integrated browser (Xenu can also import a list of URL). Both program check URL but for two different goals as I said before. However you can check evolution of URL Monit@r here It will include functionality of Xenu Link Sleuth ATM without challenging this excellent software or trying to superseed this software neither copycat the work of this excellent software. The story of URL Monit@r is not finished. It stills evolves. Anyway thank you for asking, it needed to be asked as some people might be confused. So if you need a temporary bookmark manager for long internet session research URL Monit@r is your software, on the other hand if you need to verify a whole website with report Xenu Link Sleuth ATM is your software. Please also note Xenu Link Sleuth ATM is very light in size where URL Monit@ar is more hungry in mass storage size because its modern icon driven needs for functionality. I could have go all the way with menu and speedbutton with little size glyph to reduce the size to 1Mb but it would have reduce the appeals of the software dramatically.

Thanks for answering, tactictoe. My curiosity was purely academic, issuing from considering the opportunity of enhancing this entry with mention of alternatives, as is customary here at TPFC. As the author of URL Monit@r, you'll have to concede the possibility of bias in your appraisal. :)

For example, the TEMP environment variable specifies the location in which programs place temporary files." (source)

  1. Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. Create an empty file within this folder called rapidee.ini
  3. Launch RapidEE.exe

Previous question hasn't been addressed, so I'm foregoing RapidEE for now. I would really like to know if it addresses issues like the one reported here:

Craunch on 2012-07-03 13:45

Midas, I've just been playing with this and ran into the problem you described. On investigation I realised that there are two type of environment variables: Text String and Expandable String. Text String variables (orange tag) will not expand contained references to other environment variables when they are used. Expandable String variables (blue tag) will expand their references when used. You can change their type by F6 or via the right-click menu. These two types seem to be a feature of how Windows now stores environment variables internally.

A few judicious type changes got my environment where I wanted it to be.

Midas on 2012-07-04 20:27

Thanks for that, Craunch. Vital info, IMHO. I'll look into it ASAP. :)

Because of the different strategies of most defrag apps you can do more false then right:
if you're using Vista/7/8 use the build-in defragmenter on a regular basis,
if you use XP my favourite is DiskDefrag on a regular basis,
if you defragment your hard disk, please use only one app for it.

I'm not a 'fanboy' of Auslogics DiskDefrag or any of their other products.

avi-aryan on 2013-09-24 11:05

Ultra Defrag looks good and works fast . I downloaded it just after reading a review at . Just can't wait to see how it works when compared to all other defragmenters I have tried in the past.

PS - Can anyone help me how to enable Boot Time Defragmentation provided I use the portable version.

webfork on 2015-06-28 23:20

Avi-aryan: on the Boot Time Defrag, it's unfortunately still only available for the installed version.

There's no [portable] link anymore on the homepage (where other apps do) and I can verify that v2.8.0.0 writes it's setting to the registry.

dany on 2011-11-05 16:52

Disregard my previous comment, something screwed up my regShot. It only writes the EulaAccepted key to the registry. Not stealth and a little annoying but otherwise portable...

Couldn't get this to run reliably at all. Constant freezes; always had to kill it with Task Manager.
