Nugget's more outstanding feature is its integration with VirusTotal.
Oh very nice. I can't think of a use for this immediately but I wouldn't be surprised if something came up in the months ahead.

Re: Best internal team chat messenger

Suggest me any internal team chat messenger with easy installation steps. I'd recommend Isotoxin for what you're describing. It couldn't be easier to setup and run, and the LAN messaging is hard to beat for really strong privacy/security (assuming you're on the same network or VPN). Unfortunately I...

Re: Undelete 360

Usually I describe crippleware by limitations on the primary function of the program e.g. a calendar program that you have to buy event alarms. So the the question is whether or not the secure delete was an extra or part of the main program. As the program is primarily a file recovery tool, I'd sugg...

Re: DocFetcher - File Content Indexer

I've been a fan of DocFetcher for some time now but somehow had not caught on to the advanced searching capability. This is hugely valuable and frustrating that I didn't know about it back in 2012 (when this article came out). For example, title:"portable" AND 200? NOT "MP3 Player" would return file...

Re: Keynote NF

In testing I had a lot better luck with the original Keynote program over the "NF" fork, but your mileage may vary. Neither appear to be actively updated.

People holding on to Windows 7/8 on newer or unsupported hardware might find this piece of software interesting... (untested! Installation required, it seems).
Excellent news. I'd hate to see Atom and Turion machines abandoned due to that message. Still very good processors.

Re: EtherPad Lite for Windows

So this program is still in development and is very encouraging. It supports a lot of formats, doesn't have the problems I'm having with Google services, and just looks good . The Timeslider function is outstanding. v. 1.6.6 - https://github.com/ether/etherpad-lite/blob/develop/CHANGELOG.md License:...

Re: Microsoft Planning to Buy GitHub

So did you delete your account yet?

As a result, I feel stuck between an option where I see gloom and doom on the ...
