Glenn's Eclectic Freeware

#1 Post by I am Baas » Sun Feb 20, 2011 10:36 pm

A few portable applications by Glenn Delahoy @ http://www.glenn.delahoy.com/software/index.shtml

Tested:

1. Desktop Calendar
A small calendar and event reminder that unobtrusively sits on your desktop and is ready to use any time. No taskbar button or system tray icon. The calendar is transparent so it's not an eyesore and consumes very little memory. Enter as many daily or regular reminders as you like. Float your mouse over a day to see all reminders for the day. Shows a short list of upcoming reminders below the calendar. Fonts, colours and tooltips are customisable so it blends in with your desktop colour and font schemes.

Requirements: Windows 2000/XP/Vista/Win7
Settings: Application Folder

Download @ http://www.glenn.delahoy.com/software/f ... dar140.zip

2. Desktop Info
This little application displays system information on your desktop in a similar way to some other desktop information tools. Unlike others, this application looks like wallpaper but stays resident in memory and continues to update the display in real time. Uses very little memory and nearly zero cpu. Perfect for quick identification and walk-by monitoring of production or test server farms. Everything is customisable including language.

Requirements: Windows 2000/XP/Vista/Win7
Settings: Application Folder

Download @ http://www.glenn.delahoy.com/software/f ... nfo111.zip

3. Inbox
Inbox is the middle man, the central scrutinizer for your email; fetching, collating and filtering your mail before you download it to your mail client. You can aggressively deal with unwanted mail saving you time and bandwidth. Mail can be download or left on the server. It's also a powerful tool for manipulating email in various ways: redirect, simple mailing lists, mailbots, away message, reject message, global and account level filtering.

Requirements: All versions of Windows
Settings: Application Folder

Download @ http://www.glenn.delahoy.com/software/f ... box200.zip

There is also Disk Usage Analyser v2 (and a few more applications) listed on its page but I did not test yet.

Inbox sounds really slick, but Desktop Info looks really sharp: http://www.glenn.delahoy.com/software/i ... opinfo.jpg
