WakeMeOnLan v1.71 Updated

Checker on 26 Sep 2015
  • 334KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 7 May 2015
  • Suggested by Checker

WakeMeOnLan allows you to easily turn on one or more computers remotely by sending Wake-on-LAN (WOL) packet over the network. This will return machines from a standby or turned-off state, useful for administrators or to save electricity until resources are needed. WakeMeOnLan also allows you to scan your network and collect the MAC addresses of all online computers. This information can be exported to a file.

Additionally, an available command-line interface can turn on a computer using a computer name, IP address, or the MAC address of the remote network card.

System Requirements: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10

POP Peeper v4.0.1

Checker on 19 Jul 2015
  • 5MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 10 Dec 2014
  • Suggested by falrob

POP Peeper is an email notifier that alerts you when you have new email on any of your POP3, Hotmail, MSN, Yahoo,, MyWay, Excite,, or RediffMail accounts. You can also send emails using your SMTP server or through your webmail account directly from POP Peeper.

To enable secure connections, see forum instructions.

System Requirements: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. Delete Pro and Themes folders, PPconvert.exe and PpHelper.exe
  3. Launch POPPeeper.exe
What's new?
  • Pro (AntiJunk): New option to ignore/skip AntiJunk for certain accounts (access under Account/Advanced); this is particularly useful if you're accessing spam folders and/or using the "hide from *all accounts*" option.
  • Pro (AntiJunk): "Delete Junk" action has been enhanced: you can now assign an additional action (e.g. minimize PP) and has a "don't prompt again" setting.
  • Pro (AntiJunk): When multiple filters (e.g. Rule) apply a different user flag, the one with the higest precedence will be used; previously, it would always use the first user flag applied which prevented a Rule to apply a user flag if the sender was in your white list (friend user flag). "Precedence" is calculated by the display order.
  • Error log window now supports clickable links (error messages from server may contain links).
  • If the new version prompt appears and you select "don't ask again" it only applies to that version; if another new version is subsequently released, you will receive the update notification.
  • Fix: Potential crash involving IMAP/IDLE and servers that don't provide a reliable connection.
  • Fix: SendMail: Certain locales couldn't parse standard timestamp and would prevent sending messages due to mis-calculated age.
  • Fix: Pro activation window may not appear when required.
  • Fix: Issues with VersionCheck preventing updates (including WebMail) from working correctly.
  • Fix: Log window will save to file immediately if enable "save changes" (instead of memory only).
  • Fix: Issues with High-contrast themes.

4.0.1 is out!!

"POP Peeper IS an email notifier" but is categorised under "Internet - Email Clients (4)" ("email clients as a supplementary function") with EssentialPIM, SeaMonkey and Opera Presto.
Surely, POP Peeper would be better categorised under "Internet - Email Clients (11)" ("email clients as a primary function") with nPOPuk, PopMan, etc.

Gridy v0.70 Updated

Checker on 22 Nov 2015
  • 825KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 22 Nov 2015
  • Suggested by modussn

Gridy adds an invisible grid on your desktop so that any window you move or resize is snapped to it. This helps maximize screen real estate by making windows placed adjacent to each other dynamically adjust to avoid overlapping.

Snapping to the grid is enabled with mouse drag or keyboard arrow keys. Gridy also lets you store and restore a window's size and position in up to 9 slots. This is useful for quickly arranging your windows in a convenient way. In addition, you can hide the window's Alt-Tab icon, and set any window semi-transparent or to "Always on Top."

Written in AutoHotkey.

Just upgraded from a 19" 1280x1024 to a 24" 1920x1200 monitor, and 'side by side' or 'stacked' just didn't cut it any more! A brilliant app, easy to get the hang of, I have my standard workspace of one main and three minor windows at my command. Thanks!

AdrianK_IT on 2015-01-18 17:31

V0.60 (the .exe file is a puzzling 4x the size of v0.50) just doesn't work on my PC. Reverted to v0.50.

Universal Extractor v1.6.1

webfork on 8 Nov 2014

Universal Extractor allows you to extract files from a wide variety of archive files, including ZIP, ARJ, LZH, as well as MSI and EXE files created using various installer packages (such as Nullsoft, Wise, Inno Setup, etc). Useful for testing apps for portability because you can extract files directly from installer packages without having to go through the installation process. Note that the original developer no longer updates the program so some manual updates may be required.

Alternatively, an unofficial version with the latest-and-greatest internals is available (on Lupo's PenSuite site).

Commercial use note: license restrictions are present on included files UHARC02.EXE and UHARC04.EXE, but can be deleted without dramatic impact on the software. See website for more information.

System Requirements: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? No. Included libraries may write to the registry.

It's a bit OTT calling this an universal extractor, as many EXE files I try to extract with it, leads to error messages that the so-scalled universal extractor can't extract them.

Numanoid on 2014-11-01 14:32

This programme is in fact pretty much useless, there hasn't been one exe I have tried to extract over the last couple of months, where the so-called Universal Extractor has failed me :-(
