Nope. Though the interface looks pretty straight forward, the whois queries (not all but most) are not of the owner but of server you are pulling the query from.

To set the language just open eToolz.ini scroll down to Language and replace Deutsch (intern) with English.

Not to me...
You must be doing something wrong because I've got this tool for quite a time.

Seems like a good tool to me. I like it. Thanks. ( Side note, I use modem and would like software similar to Freemeter that can show which programs/process are consuming my 56k bandwidth. So I know if Adobe or Avast AV is updating or such. )

not working after several attempts

@luc: You must extract all files in the archive.

I like this tool, but I cannot use it because my connection goes through a proxy, and there is no dialog where I can input proxy settings

I rated it thumbs down because of .RAR file extension. who the hell uses winrar anymore when zip is built into XP?

" I rated it thumbs down because of .RAR file extension. who the hell uses winrar anymore when zip is built into XP?"

who the hell uses Windows any more when there's Linux? ;)

But seriously, the deliveyry package format isn't what you should be rating. Rate the application, how well it works (or doesn't) and how usable it is. That's what other people are looking for and need to know.

The zip program built into Windows is pretty lame. Plenty of other, better archive programs are out there that work on many different compression formats (some will even work on Open Document Format files). I use 7-zip for most things.

I rated user "Winrarz" thumbs down because he's an idiot.

Arcee 2010-10-07 20:59

Any indication when a vista/7 release of this good looking tool will be available?

Download links to version 3.4.7, which is now available...

I've updated the entry. Since the changelog is only available in German I tried to translate it for our purposes, but I'm not sure to what extent my translation is correct...
