Re: Exselo - desktop search

Update here : so I finally removed this program from my machine about a month ago ... Summary of issues Takes up a huge amount of resources in disk space, processor, RAM, etc. More than any freeware I've ever tested. Interactions with staff / support didn't seem to think this was a concern. You can...

Re: Are betas allowed to be listed or must only stable versions be listed?

If I recall correctly, although Beta versions aren't welcome in the database, some exceptions are allowed -- I'm sure webfork can further substantiate that. Yes, we accept beta software into the database. I haven't added it to the FAQ just because it's not frequently asked about. There are a few re...

Re: Windows 9 is... Windows 10

I've read multiple times MS reduced their quality assurance/bug testing team prior to W10 which if so definitely shows. I keep hearing very encouraging things about Microsoft pretty much everywhere. They're friendly to open source, licensing, and there's no shortage of good things in terms of phila...

Re: How to post my app

I made an app in .NET, which I want to be free and closed-source. It needs to install a few dlls a well. Can I post this and if so how? Definitely tell us where it installs the DLLs and settings. If you can keep everything about your program within in the application folder, that's a long way towar...

Donationware means that you're allowed to use the program without donating, you're just requested to donate.
I'd probably call programs that don't work unless you donate some amount of money "Commercial, pay what you like".

Re: DocFetcher - File Content Indexer

The program supports the excellent Apache Lucene query toolset , which looks radically more mature than what was available in the commercial X1 program. One particular trick in particular has come in handy the most: proximity searches. Using the series: "term1 term2"~10 ...means finding all appeara...

Great news. After updating so many entries over the years for projects I expect are abandoned, it's nice to see that at least one project was just dormant.

Such a small thing but I think that's awesome. Great addition. Will likely have this running on one of my machines who's network status is often suspect.

Re: Advanced but lightweight WYSIWYG HTML editor

I think this program might do something of what you're looking for:

.... seems to work with tables, reasonably lightweight, and I'd be surprised if it didn't work fine on XP.

Eassos vs. EaseUS

So this threw me off yesterday: there are two software sources that produce partition and data recovery software that at least seem to not just be rebrandings. They both offer several programs that have both free vs. pro versions --- Eassos Partition Guru http://www.eassos.com/partitionguru-free.php...

Re: DocPad

Great post, thanks. I'm sure I've seen this several times before but I was put off by the name, which I used to use for creating files I would associate with WordPad (e.g. "file.docpad"). This program has text automation features I didn't even know I needed. To be clear, this is a text editor and no...

It now supports --portable parameter.
Anyone have any idea on how to use that or should we leave the extract instructions as-is?

Re: DocPad

I did it this way and it worked fine. Not sure what you mean by "stealth". In short, portability on this site is saving settings to the local folder and not somewhere in the user folder, appdata, or off in the registry. "Stealth" meanwhile is when a program doesn't write anywhere else BUT the local...

Re: Discord

This may be old news, but the program is now supporting video as well as voice. I've updated the entry and added a few additional feature notes. I don't love the program but I acknowledge it's taking over in a vacuum created between a host of disappearing IM services, as well as a bulky and confusin...

Re: Advanced but lightweight WYSIWYG HTML editor

I still use KompoZer from time to time but I've seen a number of tools like this over the years. I'll go through my notes on this and post about this soon.
