FolderTimeUpdate v1.20 Updated

Checker on 22 Oct 2014
  • 108KB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by Checker

FolderTimeUpdate scans all files and folders under the base folder you choose, and updates the 'Modified Time' of every folder according the latest modified time of the files stored in it.

This tool might be useful if, for example, you backup a cluster of folders and then restore them into another disk, but the backup program doesn't restore the original modified time of the folders.

System Requirements: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch FolderTimeUpdate.exe.

  • Added 'Mark Items With Time Change' option.
  • Added 'Display only items with time change' option to the Log Display combo-box.

ChordEase v1.0.09 Updated

Checker on 22 Oct 2014

ChordEase makes it easier to play music with complicated chords. No matter what the chords are, you can play as if they were all in the key of C. You don't need to play sharps or flats, because ChordEase automatically adds them for you. Though ChordEase is intended for jazz, it could be useful for any type of music that modulates frequently. ChordEase alters your notes in real time in order to make them harmonically correct, while preserving their rhythm and dynamics. By delegating rapid music theory calculations to ChordEase, you gain freedom to concentrate on other aspects of musical performance, such as feel and aesthetics.

ChordEase is a translator that takes MIDI notes as input, and produces MIDI notes as output. The input notes are translated to the current chord scale, so that the output notes fit the chord progression of a song. ChordEase supports various mapping functions which determine how the translating is done. ChordEase can handle multiple translations at once, so multiple performers can play through a single instance of ChordEase, using any number of MIDI instruments. ChordEase parameters can be remotely controlled via MIDI for additional effects. ChordEase can also record its own output as MIDI data.

Nice proggie! For Music lovers is a "must have"

Why this program is signed as "NO STEALTH"?

victimofleisure on 2014-09-03 13:14

Hi Taf,

That "NO STEALTH" setting is because I created the database entry myself. I tried pretty hard to get it right but apparently not quite. What should it be?


Add comment Registry Backup v1.10.1 Updated

Checker on 21 Oct 2014 Registry Backup does live registry backups using Windows' own Volume Shadow Copy Service. The program is user-friendly and allows selection of specific registry files to backup or restore. Restored backups can be done via Safe Mode or from the recovery console.

System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Path portability: Requires manual entry of relative path (eg. ..\..\personal\work.doc)
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the Portable ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. Launch TweakingRegistryBackup.exe
  3. In the Settings tab, enter a relative path as the Backup Location

Note: If you are likely to want to restore from the recovery console, use a path relative to the drive root (e.g., "\RegBackup"), otherwise the restore script will fail.
What's new?
  • Fixed a bug where the registry wouldn't restore if the user had changed the temp folders to another drive. The program will now always use C:\Windows\Temp to restore the registry. This is because of Windows security, Windows will not allow registry files from another drive to be loaded. The registry must be on the same drive as Windows in order to restore it.
  • Fixed a bug where if the settings.ini file was deleted or a user updated the program from from a older version and the settings.ini file didn't have the color information set that the colors wouldn't be set correctly, such as black text over the dark grey background. The program has now been updated to apply the proper default colors when this happens.
  • Multiple code improvements and changes.
  • Changed and updated multiple icons and graphics in the program.

Regardless of its size, this is a keeper for me. This browser is impressive. Fast, highly customizable, and a lot easier to update.

To be fair, Slimjet includes builtin PDF viewer and pepper flash player plugin. That's 20MB+. If you don't need that, you can delete those. And you can remove all the language files that you don't need under the locales folder and language folder. And if you don't ever play any games based on the NaCl technology, feel free to remove nacl_irt_x86_32.nexe and nacl_irt_x86_64.nexe .

Their SlimBoat is a lot slimmer. But Slimjet is the better choice to go for me in terms of speed and site compatibility.

I don't know about the Opera 12. That seems a very old version. But I checked opera 24 and its unpacked size is 150MB+.
