Caffeine v1.97 Updated

Midas on 11 Apr 2021

Caffeine prevents an automatic screensaver or going into standby/sleep/hibernate, useful for presentations or playing video. It works by simulating a keypress once every 59 seconds, so your PC thinks you're still working at the keyboard. Double-clicking the program icon "empties" the coffee pot and temporarily disables the program, while doing this a second time re-enables it.

Other command-line arguments for more functions are present on the web site.

I've had a bit better luck with QuickTextPaste on Win10x64 by using commands other than those that use the "Win" key in combinations. It only sometimes triggers properly. Much better to use CTRL+ALT, CTRL+SHIFT, etc.

It`s not stealth. Creates 'AppData\Roaming\QuickTextPaste\QuickTextPaste.ini' file.

Oops, sorry. Just saw the message about creating the ini file. Too early for me. :(

CCTime v1.01

mmx64 on 11 Dec 2019
  • 588B (uncompressed)
  • Released on
  • Suggested by mmx64

CCTime is a utility to help track how much time you spend on different tasks during your work day. Tracking time is tedious, so focus lies on simplicity and automation. CCTime stays out of your way while still being readily accessible, so you can focus on actual work. CC is short for Click Click, because two clicks is all it takes to register time on a task!

CCTime sits in your system tray and automatically hides when not in use. You can see how much time you've spent in total each day, and how much of that time has not yet been assigned to tasks. For each week you can get a report, summarizing your work that week.

CC Time is free, open source software. Source code is available at GitHub.

What is the template to add commands to the menu list? Whatever i try it doesn't work.

Anyone knows about other cmd replacement that allows you to save commands?

Midas on 2014-07-04 17:45

JPsoft 4DOS/4NT (currently renamed to Take Command) allows you to set up persistent "alias", just check the documentation...
