Re: TPFC Database

I think tproli's linked mockup suits the existing design well, being left-aligned in keeping with the other elements. The headings help it become more readable and the max line width is still preserved as requested.

Re: Portable Freeware Ideas

It is irritating to have go to the internet each time, look up various steps, and perform these manually, over and over again. Isn't this what programming was supposed to be for in the first place? Have you seen if scripting can achieve what you're after? As repetitive and multi-step tasks are what...

Re: Thoughts on the future of RSS/feeds and keeping track of program release news

Well its pretty much everything... Slickdeals and discount trackers so I don't miss a good price on anything i'm interested in buying. This reminded me to mention that feeds for eBay/classifieds are incredibly useful for those wanting to find hard-to-find items, not just for necessarily good prices...

Thoughts on the future of RSS/feeds and keeping track of program release news

Not sure how others have managed to keep track of software news but I'd imagine feeds (RSS/Atom) are a key part of it for some. I know when I was using Firefox (pre-Quantum version) the feed reader I had set up was a useful part of how I kept track of many things, including some software both for bu...

So did anyone already submit it to this site's database or should I?
For the forum you mean? I don't think Sandboxie has a portable version.

Re: Sandboxie become free

Windows's built-in sandbox is another option for Windows 10 users: https://www.thewindowsclub.com/windows-sandbox Ever since I heard about that I've been wondering what would happen to Sandboxie, especially given its slow pace of development since being bought out years ago (at least, last I checke...

Re: GetFoldersize & AllDup

Perhaps out of spite for the last version of GetFolderSize we recommend it seems the current owner of the domain linked in the entry from the archive.org mirror issued a robots.txt exclusion to the exact download URL we link to, which archive.org respects and has hidden the mirror from public view. ...

Re: ImgDrive

Given the nature of mounting drives does this qualify for an entry here or was it just due to not being tested thoroughly for portability yet as smaragdus mentioned?

Re: WebP Graphics Format

Again, I'm not sure I trust that as it's Google data talking about Google's formats doing well. Like the various WEBP tests I looked into, seeing better data (in this case from an independent source) would be ideal. That said, I wouldn't be surprised if those numbers were accurate. I want to advoca...

Re: WebP Graphics Format

The short version is: if it's worth advocating for, I couldn't tell and I'm not seeing much interest in the format. When I looked into it a while back, the only reason I found to use WebP over other formats was for thumbnails. Otherwise I'm not seeing clear view that sets it apart from other, more ...

Re: New at NirSoft

One thing I'd say about the FolderChangesView entry is it can't be found in PFDB searches using the queries 'monitor files' or 'monitor changes' which lead me to look into other programs that did show up in results (despite even thinking to myself it would have been nice if Nirsoft had something for...

Re: Directory Monitor

Anyone know why their FAQ has an item about installing a trusted root certificate of theirs in Windows for Directory Monitor? What purpose does it serve for this program? Hardly seems like a trivial thing one should be installing without knowing what it's for.

Re: Inviska Rename

What would boost productivity with this program considerably for large directories (which is most I use renaming programs with) would be an option to display in both panes only files that match the entered rename pattern. As currently if the working directory is filled with many files and you're onl...

Re: Video player that has 10 secs back & forward buttons ?

I'll add that with Potplayer one can also edit any skin to make a button on a skin become 'go forward/back in time' rather than 'go to next/prev file'. The commands I'm aware of for the first Time Jump value seen in the Playback preferences Ding mentioned above are: ID_PLAYBACK_5SEC_BACK ID_PLAYBACK...
