A couple of things; - This website appears to be heavily Windows oriented, although there are some applications with BSD, Linux, MacOS, or other OS versions. - DSL-N does not seem to be under development anymore. - DSL (N's older sibling) is still in active development. A version with QEMU can be fo...

I had a very similar program on my Apple][ about 30+ years ago. It was a simple string storage program that allowed searches of an in memory database (load/save to cassette). Actually, a very useful program in its day. I'm interested in trying this to see if the concept holds up well.

I'm not sure what exactly you are looking for; the description on Tagebuch isn't all that good (and I don't have access to MacOS to check it out). One possibility to consider would be one of the portable wiki's, like TiddlyWiki ( http://www.tiddlywiki.org ). They already have journaling capability a...

Without a test file to try, I'm just suggesting a possible solution to try: WinSQL is an ODBC database browser (lite is free for personal use) that is relatively small and can be copied to and run from a portable drive, if the ODBC drivers are available. I have no idea if it is stealth; you don't sa...

It is my understanding that Mobile Win and WinCE names are both intentional attempts to defraud the public into believing that it is the same OS as Windows. They are not and you should not expect any Win Apps to run on either of these platforms. They require unique builds/compiles.

I just try to be consistent and download the paf self-installer as a general rule. Not all apps get distributed as zips. That way, I know what to expect if I have to go back into my archives to do a new or re-install.

How do the ID Tags interfere with using explorer?

If you buy a music player for your files, you will need to add them back since most of the major players work from the tags rather than folders/directories.

We generally don't question inclusion is someone writes a wrapper in one language or another. So, this is a different tool. So long as it is a package (doesn't require external apps), what is the difference if JauntePE is used? Even size is less important now with 4 gig drives available at retail (S...

nobody likes to develop for IE but it has to be done
If a site can put up a "must use IE" sign, why not put up one that says "Please use Firefox, Opera, Konqueror, Dillo, IceWeasel or other HTML standard compatible browser. Microsoft variants not supported."

Take a look at Notepad++, which can be found here. It is a general purpose editor that is equipped with both XML syntax checking and autocompletion (but not the Microsoft version). I use it as my editor but don't use it for XML since I don't need that particular functionality. A suggestion for the f...
