Hi to all of you who use WordWeb-
I've read the license 3 times now & I still don't get it. If you get it, please explain it to me & after you do, I'll probably be saying DUH to myself.
Link to the license if anyone wants to read it....
https://wordweb.info/free/licence5.html

I've read all of the above comments & I still don't get a clue.

I'm in hopes that one of you can explain it to me.

Thanks in advance.

@Happy.Camper2
The license clearly says that if you fly aboard a commercial jet aircraft more than TWICE in a 12 month time period, you are not being 'green'. This company believes in environmentalism, and hates normal people like you and I who drive cars, flies aboard aircraft, and use gas-powered lawn mowers. That's why I don't use this weird software and use The Sage instead.

Hi Mixture-
[1]I've never flown on a jet or any other in the sky vehicles
[2]I don't have a car since a few years ago
[3]I don't have any gas-powered gizmos

Maybe I'm just 'green' enough to use WordWeb if need be.
I also keep The Sage on hand if I need it.

Thank you for explaining that strange license to me and the way
its written up does seem kinda weird to me.

Strong Passwords Need Entropy v14.0 Updated

billon on 22 Apr 2018
  • 882KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 21 Apr 2018
  • Suggested by Midas

Strong Passwords Need Entropy is entropy calculator, password's strength and survivability checker and a strong password generator. The program analyzes your password and displays statistics about its length, character frequency, symbols, lowercase+uppercase letters, and digits. Based on this information, it calculates the password entropy, or the number of trials needed to find it and the time to crack the password.

Note that this analysis doesn't take into account "dictionary attacks" or use of words. For example, "ambassadorconjure" is long but not necessarily hard for a computer to guess.

This is an interesting application. Is there a way to run a list of passwords and get an output file of passwords and evaluations? If not here, can anyone recommend a portable app that does this?

webfork on 2015-06-13 19:07

br3: I haven't seen one that evaluates passwords in batches. I'd reach out to the developer on that point.

And yet, QTranslate v6.3.1.zip portable downloads without a hitch.

That'll teach you even thinking about using an installer...;-)

I never ever thought of using the installer, I was just testing the download link- the problem with the installer download doesn't appear for the first time. However both primary download links (installer & archive) work fine now.
Thanks to the developer for maintaining and improving the program and for not ruining the interface (so far) like many other freeware developers did recently.

Just teasing, of course...;-)

I tried the latest version of this dictionary/thesaurus portable software and still had problems with it. Only this time, I recorded my problem.

Download link broken...

I strongly suppose that, every time you enter a search, this program will connect not only to the Longman database but will also establish connections either to Google or Amazon (the two biggest tracking firms this poor, abused globe has ever seen). The website with the pure online version doesn't even load if I block Amazon. If someone else tests it and finds out that it doesn't connect either to Google or Amazon, I will download it. :-)
