Re: MindMapple

MindMaple Lite 1.7 is still available and listed as freeware and seems to work without a serial: https://www.softpedia.com/get/Office-tools/Other-Office-Tools/MindMaple-Lite.shtml Update : Not surprising, but MindMaple Lite is also not portable (writes to AppData\Roaming\MindMaple) Steps : Install-...

Re: software to block file modification

runblock blocks program only , right? thanks webfork Sure thing ... yeah, having worked with UNIX file permissions at some length, I'd probably class this as read/write/execute permissions, with Runblock only affecting execute permissions. Even all these years later I'm not exactly clear on how tha...

Wordcount - text analysis

Background I've been on a text analysis tools kick for the past year or two, so when I saw this I was hoping that one or two of the features mentioned wouldn't be quite so locked down under a premium cost to make it useful. It can certainly help catch the worst offenders in your content, but I didn...

Comes with three downtempo background music MP3s that it plays (or no music at all) as well as some typing ...

Time to block freeware connections

I recently pointed out to my friend how both Reddit and Twitter both have abysmal web interfaces that I really dislike using. In fact, not long after making the decision to stop using both programs on my device, I quit using both services almost entirely. I used to quite like Reddit's web app, so I'...

Re: Windows 9 is... Windows 10

I've not posted anything about Windows 11 both because I haven't seen anything interesting, but also because this is entirely what I expected from the next OS version: a fully cloud-based PC. They've been seeing money in cloud for years now (Office 365 is not cheap ) and it only makes sense that the...

Sure thing. Other programs from this crew have been pretty good on this topic, including Bluelife Hosts Editor

Registry Explorer

I'm not sure yet whether or not this beats any of the existing freeware tools but it definitely goes above and beyond the windows native tool, appears to be in active develoipment, and is open source. Requires : VS Studio 2018 (source only distro) Status : Untested Homepage: https://github.com/zodia...

Re: FreePlane Portable

There have been several updates since this was posted about last. I prefer the overall look and usability of XMind, but I have to say that FreePlane is just chock full of features. It also doesn't have any nagging feature lockdowns, as it's not "freemium" like XMind. Now at version 1.9.5 https://www...

There are many text editors out there, and not all of them have the text-manipulation func...

Wise Toys - various freeware tools

For those of us familiar with freeware options, these are going to seem fairly simple. While others might enjoy the collection of tools, it takes up a lot of RAM and processes (Electron based) for somewhat basic freeware tools. Issues: the step recorder didn't work for me, the image converter compre...

Works pretty well. Previously I was using RBTray, but that doesn't work with all windows.
Yeah RB was my go-to for a long time. Glad that worked out.
