Rainlendar Lite v2.14 Updated

billon on 19 Feb 2018

Rainlendar is a skinnable, easy-to-use calendar that resides on your desktop and shows the days of the current month. You can add events and tasks with customizable icons and formats to the calendar and be reminded when they occur. Rainlendar uses the standard iCalendar format to store its events and tasks so you can easily transfer them between applications.

Cross-platform (Windows, Linux, OS X).

Note: Rainlendar Lite is the freeware version of Rainlendar Pro (Payware). The lite version is missing network shared calendars, Outlook support and other features.

Now that there's no "Portable" option, there's still a method: just install as normal to any directory. Create an empty text file and name it "Rainlendar2.ini" where settings will be saved to. You're all set.

Still use this program daily for over a year.

mp3DirectCut is a small tool for editing MPEG audio directly. You can remove parts, change the volume, split files or copy regions to new files, all without the need to decompress your MP3 into PCM/WAV. This saves work, encoding time and disk space. In addition, there is no quality loss to edited files.

Functional in Linux via WINE.

There is a new version of mp3DirectCut- 2.21, but I do not like the new icon and will stick to mp3DirectCut 2.20. I do not get it why all developers embrace the ugly and unbearable M$ flat design.

Specular on 2016-02-20 12:47

In v2.22 there's a 'Configuration Storage' setting under Prefs>Folders. By default it's unchecked. Does it need to be enabled for portable use?

j7n on 2017-04-06 22:59

The new "flat" design with similar monochrome icons is a step back in usability. Normal appearance, apart from grouping of toolbar buttons, can be restored under Configuration -> Layout.

The program is a good tool for trimming old MP3 encodes without incurring further quality loss. Glitches are avoided if the MP3 is upconverted to 320 kbit beforehand with MP3Packer.

I wish it also supported common simple video soundtrack formats.

@billon
The portable x64 version (Q-Dir_Portable_x64.zip) is available for download.

Mithril on 2016-03-27 20:53

Well, i found the solution myself. Don't know if this option is new or not but its the first time i noticed. So, when dragging files into another window or tab in Q-dir, at the bottom it says "Start drop in new process"! (and recycle bin and email aswell) ha! and just drop it on this button.. nothing will freez! magic :) Thanks anyway folks.
Q-dir is great.

The Q-Dir 64 installer 6.47 is not installing, last time there was also a problem with the 64 installer. They should be checking first before releasing the installer.

Not a big deal but that screenshot really needs an update. It doesn't do the TB interface justice on newer OSs/themes.

v38.6.0 released !

MIKLO on 2016-09-01 14:57

Been using for the last few years and it works very well,something that's important 4me is to save all my emails to a file that I choose. I have used many email apps over the years but it always seems at some point they discontinue them. I hope this is not the fate of "ThunderChicken" cuz I have really come to like it very much, in my opinion its a very good email service that does all I want and more. Thanks Mozilla.

PDF-XChange Viewer v2.5.322.8 Updated

billon on 26 Jan 2018
  • 20MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 24 Jan 2018
  • Suggested by Myles

PDF-XChange Viewer is a feature-rich program that displays multiple PDF documents within a tabbed interface. Edit features include the ability to rotate documents, add comments/annotations to any PDF file, apply custom stamps from any image/PDF file/Windows clipboard, mark-up pages with text and objects, and type directly on any PDF page in "Typewriter" mode. The program supports exporting to BMP/JPEG/TIFF/PNG etc., or extracting text from a PDF page/file. Additional features include capturing the document with the snapshot tool (copies an area to clipboard), measuring tools for distance, area and perimeter, and more. A recommended picture-to-text OCR plugin is available (thanks Bruce) as is a PDF help file.

Reported as functional on Mac/Linux under WINE. Alternatively, PDF-XChange Viewer Portable adjusts paths, with an OCR plugin and help file available from the website as separate downloads.

Note:

  • The free PDF-XChange Viewer lacks some features present in the registered version (payware) and, while some "Pro" features can still be used, they'll add a watermark to the document edited upon saving
  • For 64-bit, see forum post

@zorro:
I updated my default PDF viewer (PDF-XChange Viewer 2.5.320) today. Tracker Software still updates the Viewer.
Why don't I use the PDF-XChange Editor? Simple, I need a PDF viewer, not an editor.

PAFuser on 2017-06-30 15:11

Mixture is correct. Only need as viewer with able to add text comment (download utility bills and mark date paid, less paper stored).
