Dopamine (DotNET audio player)

Been meaning to make a quick post about this player for quite some time -- I guess today will be the day... I haven't tested Dopamine , really, but it has consistently made it into top players lists around the web mainly because it can manage large music collections. Moreover, the UI looks cool, the...

Scancode Map (keyboard re-mapper)

Let me start with a stern WARNING about this program: be very, VERY careful with what you change with Scancode Map -- applying changes requires a reboot and I managed to lock myself out of Windows by changing a single key!

Vagrant (virtualization manager)

This is a little out of my depth but, with all the recent talk of virtualization, I think Vagrant is an avenue of exploration we should at least point out here at TPFC. Vagrant is a tool for building and distributing development environments. @ https://github.com/hashicorp/vagrant/ Vagrant is a tool...

Re: DOSBox [legacy OS emulator]

Very old topic update: DOSBox last release was v0.74-3, from 2019-06-26 (see announcement at https://www.dosbox.com/). Ideally, 0.75 should have been released by now, but some bugs took a lot longer than expected. @ https://www.dosbox.com/ Apparently development is still going, as a patch for Linux ...
