Re: 7-Zip plugins

Excellent post - I had no idea any of these existed. I'm most surprised by the Outlook MSG opener as I remember trying to find a way to open those files sans Outlook a few years ago and coming up completely empty.

Re: HashMyFiles

Wouldn't it be time to implement Blake2b? It's faster e more secure: https://blake2.net/ I'm impressed that it's faster than MD5, but I wonder how it performs with something other than modern processors. As BLAKE was written specifically for those toolsets, older machines (especially 32-bit), cell ...

Re: Installed VPN - lowered laptop battery life ~20%

At least on your laptop, you might try updating your drivers. There may be built-in functionality that's turned off or not working with the software. I'm fairly sure Intel NICs have VPN optimization tools built right in. I'm not sure what else I'd try apart from disabling any high security settings,...

Ah guess it's just an installer-free version. Thanks for testing.

Re: Basilisk web browser

is Basilisk actually portable yet? i was avoiding using it for now I would continue to avoid it as it is early stage. As to portability, they have a ZIP distro that I assume is likely portable but I will not test it until development comes along. Firefox 57, "Firefox Quantum", was a huge leap forwa...

Re: basilisk web browser

It's kind of crazy to think that around 15 years of addon history could get wiped by the browser company who allowed it to flourish but they've burned that bridge now and are continuing with WebExtensions instead. It's really lose-lose decision. If Mozilla doesn't put away the old toys, no one's go...

Re: Bat to Exe Converter

What's the problem with ZeroNet? I visited the program homepage with Firefox Portable just now and everything works fine - I can view the program description and download it. No ZeroNet service or client installed, of course... I didn't realize a separate ZeroNet client wasn't necessary. By definit...

I'm not sure I understand what issue you're seeing. Could you walk through the steps on this?

Re: Presentation - draft site intro

I have provided a link to the ODP slideshow in the About page. Hopefully with more feedback, this will become the goto guide for folks interested in portable freeware on the Internet! This is very much a very basic draft, but thanks for the vote of confidence. I hope to have something a little more...

Re: Bat to Exe Converter

So what should we do with the entry? Because new version is out and available only from that "ZeroNet" My suggestion is that we treat it as if the program has gone offline, point to a mirror location (like softpedia), and add a quick note to the entry about ZeroNet and a link. I'd go with: NOTE: Ma...

Re: SwiftSearch

Yeah, unfortunately I learned about that long after I put up the project... I don't see a compelling reason to change it now though... I'd rather have it stay consistent. Somehow this response got past me ... Applying a non-software license to software doesn't actually have any consequences. It's l...

Re: Crow Translate (online language utility)

Great post thanks. Does this require an Internet connection? Meaning does any of it function offline, such as text-to-speech?

Presentation - draft site intro

So I put together a presentation I'd like to add to the site as part of our About page and I need your help. This is a rough draft and will likely see lots of changes, hopefully with many of the visible words being spoken in a video rather than written on the slide. I'll also try to add some some qu...

Re: PortExpert

Gave this a try since I'm always on the lookout for useful tools of this nature, but this one unfortunately adds nothing new to the table that Sysinternals' TCPView or NirSoft's many networking tools (CurrPorts, LiveTcpUdpWatch, NetworkTrafficView & IPNetInfo) don't already do, so whats the point? ...
