Converseen

Preamble I do not use image converters and resizers very often- mainly when I have to resize some huge files for the web. In most cases I have relied upon two popular closed source tools- FastStone Photo Resizer and XnConvert (the latter is cross platform) which are more than enough for my basic ne...

Re: HTTP Downloader

I know that the image file for the banner can be deleted but even without the image it looks like an empty shelf. By waste of space I meant waste of vertical space because of the abominable b...

Re: HTTP Downloader

The developer clarified that the should work under Windows Vista or higher: Although I aim to get my programs working on older systems, at a bare minimum, they should work on Windows Vista and newer.

Re: DM2 – maintenance (help wanted)

DM2 ( database entry ) was abandoned long ago (the last version- 1.23.1 , is from 2007-03-05 ).

The developer , Igor Spasić , exported the project to GitHub trying to find someone interested...
