Orzeszek Programs

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

Orzeszek Programs

#1 Post by Lare2 » Thu Oct 21, 2010 7:34 pm

Just read about this three programs over @ lifehacker and as far as i can see they are portable.

Im letting you all know to see if someone with more knowledge about it can give them a check
and if indeed portable can submit them to the database.

Interesting. Shame it doesn't support UPNP or encryption. According to the FAQ, DotNET v3.5 required.

Also requires an external port, which is probably more than most users are comfortable setting up as it requires admin access to your router and knowledge to set that up.

Orzeszek Timer has been renamed to Hourglass - http://chris.dziemborowicz.com/apps/hourglass/, latest version version of Hourglass is 1.1 but older versions are also available for download. Hourglass now requires .NET 4.

Orzeszek Transfer is among my favourite programs.

The animation really grabbed me and when I started digging through the features, I wanted to catch more of them.

The big one was how the saved timers continue counting down:

I also really liked the natural language entry format (1 year, 7 minutes, etc.).

I'd almost forgotten about this one. There are a ton of cute programs like this for mobile devices but you so rarely see them on the desktop side and open source.

Thanks for adding.

Thanks to billion for updating the release date and removing the unnecessary installer version changelog note of Hourglass. Slipped by me when updating the entry to the latest version, was a bit tired.

Have a whole directory of shortcuts for custom preset Hourglass timers that draw from daily, continues to be a standout program.

Recently started using Hourglass for two things:
  1. Reminder to save a really fragile file that I was working on every 10 minutes with a looping alarm ping noise
  2. Taking breaks via the pomodoro method (20 minutes of work, 5 min break) to help improve focus and avoid burnout
All the interface tweaks and other goodies under the hood are rapidly making this part of my normal program set. The way the bar gradually fills up in the task bar is hugely useful to see where I am in a process or as I'm approaching a deadline.
