Hi to all of you who use WordWeb-
I've read the license 3 times now & I still don't get it. If you get it, please explain it to me & after you do, I'll probably be saying DUH to myself.
Link to the license if anyone wants to read it....
https://wordweb.info/free/licence5.html

I've read all of the above comments & I still don't get a clue.

I'm in hopes that one of you can explain it to me.

Thanks in advance.

@Happy.Camper2
The license clearly says that if you fly aboard a commercial jet aircraft more than TWICE in a 12 month time period, you are not being 'green'. This company believes in environmentalism, and hates normal people like you and I who drive cars, flies aboard aircraft, and use gas-powered lawn mowers. That's why I don't use this weird software and use The Sage instead.

Hi Mixture-
[1]I've never flown on a jet or any other in the sky vehicles
[2]I don't have a car since a few years ago
[3]I don't have any gas-powered gizmos

Maybe I'm just 'green' enough to use WordWeb if need be.
I also keep The Sage on hand if I need it.

Thank you for explaining that strange license to me and the way
its written up does seem kinda weird to me.

@ professional518: "What's new?" will show you the changelog.

The "How to extract" should be changed so that it reads "Launch vv.exe." two v's instead of a "w". vv is for video to video

XCALC v2.9.4

Andrew Lee on 12 Feb 2013

XCALC is a highly configurable calculator that can be used for simple calculations using decimal or complex floating point, or hexadecimal, octal or binary integer numbers. The program uses RPN (Reverse Polish Notation), similar to the classic Hewlett Packard handhelds. You can choose from anything between a small window consisting of a single number display only (which you can float above other programs) to a full-fledged big display with all colors, buttons, bells and whistles.

The basic operator buttons (+,-,*,/) don't seem to work correctly. Everything else does, but is kind of useless without the basic operators.

Geir on 2009-02-27 02:34

This is an excellent RPN calculator. Highly recommended.

Nice program and it works on Window 7 64-bit version.

WizMouse v1.7.0.3

webfork on 5 Sep 2016

WizMouse is a lightweight program that lets your mouse wheel scroll the window under the mouse pointer even if the window doesn't have input focus. This means you no longer have to click on a window to activate it before you can scroll it with your mouse wheel.

The program can also optionally enable the mouse wheel in applications that don't support mouse by converting mouse wheel messages to scroll bar messages.

Other options include "reverse mouse scrolling" (like "natural scrolling" on Mac OS X Lion), and bringing the scrolling window to the foreground.

What's new?
  • This version updates the reverse mouse scrolling option to behave in a more similar way to Mac OS "natural" scrolling (the wheel direction is no longer reversed when the control key is held down).
