CloneSpy can help you free up hard drive space by detecting and removing duplicate files with exactly the same contents regardless of their name, date, time, or location. Also, CloneSpy is able to find files that are not exactly identical, but have the same file name. This can be an issue for example if you have different versions of a file and you want to find and remove the older versions. CloneSpy is able to find zero-byte files.

Akelpad is a plain text editor designed to be small and fast. Unicode support, both single-document and tabbed interfaces, unlimited file size and multi-level undo are just a few of the many features this editor offers.

Alternatively, AkelPad Portable portablizes recent files and search history and has both the 32- and 64-bit versions together and chooses the right one. X-AkelPad is also available.

Category:
System Requirements: WinAll
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes. If you set Recent Files and Search History to 0 as these are stored in the registry.
Unicode support: Yes. Full support of Unicode strings on Unicode systems (NT/2000/XP/Vista/7)
Path portability: Requires manual entry of drive-less absolute path (eg. \docs\personal\work.doc without the drive letter)
License: BSD
How to extract:
  1. Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. In AkelPad.exe folder, use a Unicode-aware editor to create AkelPad.ini with four lines:
    [Options]
    SaveSettings=2
    RecentFiles=0
    SearchStrings=0
  3. Save AkelPad.ini as a Unicode-encoded file
  4. Launch AkelPad.exe
What's new? Added:
  • Command 4194 - paste text taking into account selection case.
  • Optional parameter for change case commands 4175-4180:
    1 - change case for current word if no selection.

  • Now "AkelAdmin.exe" provides the ability to modify a file on disk root (UAC).
  • To directly open the *.lnk or *.url from file open dialog, need to click on "Open" button while holding Ctrl.
Fixed:
  • Mixing caret and active column colors with background.
  • Metacharacters \w and \W usage in character set [].
  • Possibility in file open/save dialog to specify NTFS file stream or path containing backslashes.
  • "Search finished" not displayed when cycle searching from the document beginning.

AkelPad will stubbornly create umpteens "HKCU\Software\Akelsoft\AkelPad\Options"
registry entries on 1st run, whether or not the "Save settings to INI file" option is initially selected.

JohnTHaller and Ruby provided great tips to circumvent this annoying "feature" on 1st run:

(Pre-requisite: Make sure your editor supports file saving in UNICODE format.)

1. Unzip AkelPad-4.8.5-bin-eng.zip in directory of choice.
2. Create an "akelpad.ini" file with the following four lines
[Options]
SaveSettings=2
RecentFiles=0
SearchStrings=0
3. Save akelpad.ini as a UNICODE strings file
4. Launch AkelPad.exe
5. Run happily ever after.

Drag'n'Crypt ULTRA v2.3.7

webfork on 31 May 2014
  • 674KB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by Fluffy

Drag'n'Crypt ULTRA is a small file encryption tool that uses a handy "drop box" interface to make encryption and decryption fast and easy. Uses the Twofish encryption algorithm

Note: File size is limited. Maximum file size depends on 1/2 free memory (for example: with a RAM of 512 MB RAM you can encrypt a 256 MB file). The author recommends TrueCrypt for larger files.

Note:

  • The website is in German, but the program is in English.
  • Starting from version 2.2.0, Drag'n'Crypt ULTRA is no longer backwards-compatible with data encrypted using Blowfish or TEA.

@New_Order: Anyone who can write encryption software has my respect. Anyone who offers their software for use by others at no cost has my thanks - Vielen dank!

The testing I was doing on DCU was to investigate Ganamyde's problem of complete computer lock-down when encrypting large files. Even though I tried encrypting files that were probably 100x bigger than DCU was intended to work with, I did not get lock-down. This is good because it shows that DCU can encrypt large files.

About half way through encrypting a 1GB file, I noticed that DCU was trying to trying to connect to the internet, and I blocked it. I was not expecting DCU to connect to the internet at all, and it seemed strange that it tried to do this while it was still encrypting a file. Unfortunately for you I am very sensitive to software that does the unexpected, and 2x as sensitive when the software is processing data that the user believes should be kept secure. That is why I marked DCU down.

I am now wondering if the internet connection could be the cause of Ganamyde's problem. I am guessing that you start a new thread to check for a new version of DCU. If the internet connection has to wait for data, that could cause the thread to lock up. This is not much of a problem with multiple processor cores, but if Ganamyde's computer was old enough to only have a single core it could cause his lock-down. Of course this is complete guesswork from me and is very likely wrong.

The download link goes to a wayback.archive.org page which claims to be looking for stuff from around February 2008, then it opens a page with a footer date 2012. The download is indeed 2.07 ... but this is very strange behaviour. Why is this considered an update? If you click on "check for new version" in the clipguru window, it returns "Clipguru is no longer available". If this aint' dead, it's breathing very shallowly.

How do you make this portable? I went to a new computer and all my todos, events, and notes were gone. Nothing was written to the application folder. Great little app otherwise.

Looks like all you need to do to make the app portable is drag the exstora_dat.xml file from "%userprofile%\Application Data\Exstora" folder into the portable directory you are running Exstora from.

Great game! Tempest was my all-time favorite when I was a kid. I used to love getting up to the invisible levels, playing for like 1/2 hour on a single quarter :P (not like today's arcade games where it's like a dollar a minute...)

Can anyone suggest though a controller for this game, though? I can't deal with the mouse-- this game needs a full 360 "paddle" like the original game to really play it properly. Just not the same otherwise. Anybody know of something like this that would connect to the computer? (and would the game recognize it?)
I might have to try the author....
In any case he did a great job capturing the feel of the original!

Stranded 2 is an open-ended game about exploration and survival. Use just about anything you can find to build tools, shelter, weapons or even rafts. The more you do the more your skills grow, allowing you to do even more things or become more efficient at your current abilities. If you fish for most of your food you'll eventually learn to create special nets to automatically catch fish for you. If you harvest a great deal you'll learn how to plant herb gardens and eventually be able to plant new trees. Combine open-ended gameplay with the ability to play completely random islands or even generate your own and you've got a game that's sure to keep you busy for hours. Note that there is also a story mode to introduce you to the game (Bonus points for being able to tame a Velociraptor and ride it around while being stoned out of your mind).

Contains some mild nudity, although 8-bit and not graphic by any stretch of the imagination.

THG Task Assignment Manager is an invaluable utility for anyone with a multi-processor or multi-core computer. It allows you to increase the speed of your computer by configuring certain tasks to individual processors. Known as "affinity," this will save your program settings and maintain profiles of them in the future. This has many benefits including:

  • Keeping one program from using all your system resources
  • Increasing speed to two or more programs that aren't optimized for multi-processor systems
  • Helping run some games that require a correct affinity setting to run properly
Note: The program has to be configured and then actively running for processor affinity to work; it does not function automatically.

Zetrix is a Tetris clone that sports beautiful, full 3D visuals with particle effects, lush sound and effects, enhanced features, and even a 2-player mode. ITetris fans, hardcore gamers, and even casual gamers will all surely find something they like about Zetrix.

Note: The official homepage of Zetrix is no longer available, so the homepage link points to the Reloaded.org review, as they also host the most recent version of the game.

O.O This is not the intention of an installation program ;) of course you can choose the installation destination within the installer ;)

btw. the system requirements are a bit higher than quake3 due to the fact that we really max out that engine ;)
iŽd recommend at least a P4 1.4GHz, 512MB RAM and a Geforce4 Ti4200 - this way you can play fine in the default GFX settings.
