ColorPicker allows color code selections, primarily for web development. Colors can be selected similar to the Windows color selection via an HSL color graphic, and both HSL and RGB values can be adjusted individually. So-called web-safe colors can also be selected via a graphic (e.g. for 3-digit CSS color values) and values can be copied or pasted in different formats. The program allows automatic copy and paste of values that enable data exchange with other programs, including text and HTML editors.

notecase is a solid program I've used for about 2 years. no easter eggs, tom; it's GTK made portable, which GTK isn't supposed to do. This guy figured out how. notecase is crossplatform. if you're always going to be an M$ drone, then you don't care and should maybe keep quiet; otherwise, don't knock it Until you try it.

This program is now called FCEUX, and version is at 2.1.4a (older version still available on website).

"The concept behind FCEUX is to merge elements from FCEU Ultra, FCEU rerecording, FCEUXD, FCEUXDSP, FCEUXDSP CE, and FCEU-mm into a single branch of FCEU."

Not sure about portability though...

For those of us who check these pages every day to see whats new, this program isn't categorized but from what I've read, I "assume" its a game. The description is very vague to those of us uninitiated.

It's really not a game but an emulator similar to Mame and others. You add ROM files and you can play older games on your PC. In this case it's an emulator for NES and Famicom based games.
