Re: AkelPad (ultra lightweight text editor)

Even though the last official update was in 2016, there have been trickling updates as late as September 2020: https://sourceforge.net/p/akelpad/codesvn/4413/log/ Hopefully we'll see a new official release sometime soon. According to the dev log, biggest changes include supporting 64-bit and native ...

Re: Best Firefox add-ons [was "plugin(s)"]

I fail to grasp your intended implications, care to explain them? The whole point of AdNauseum is to confuse ad companies by providing fake interest data via ad clicks. If you block the ads or don't click on the ads, ad companies can't construct an accurate profile without some form of browser fing...

Re: Winsnap - Screen capture utility

I updated that entry, but instead of linking to the alternative codecpack.co site like we are now, we might want to mirror the app on TPFC servers instead.

Re: Best Firefox add-ons [was "plugin(s)"]

AdNauseum sounds like a terrible idea. I wouldn't want to reward sites by having it auto-clicking on any ads it encounters. If you block ads to begin with, how can ad companies construct a profile? Even the Lifehacker author couldn't get AdNauseum to work properly: I confess, I couldn’t get AdNauseu...

Re: Recommended standard Windows/Office tweaks

Great post, webfork!

It should be noted that Windows Sandbox requires the Pro Edition. Those with Windows Home will not be able to use it.

Re: Telegram - cross platform, secure chat

Just a FYI to make sure you login every once in awhile to prevent Telegram from deleting your account and having to register a new account all over again. I didn't know that Telegram removes inactive accounts. I believe the default inactive period is six months, but you can change this to a maximum ...

Re: jPortable

Had to run Java Portable from a command prompt, so was trying to figure out the easiest way to do this.

Found out you can use PA's Command Prompt Portable and that will auto-detect jPortable, so you can use that if you need to pass any command-line arguments to a .jar file or what have you.

Re: PDF-XChange Viewer

I wanted to try the OCR addon for PDF-Xchange Viewer from portableapps.com since the one from the official website doesn't seem to work properly (or maybe something has changed that needs to be documented). However, the link for the OCR addon on portableapps.com is dead. @JohnTHaller - Can you fix t...

Re: qBittorrent

I've updated the listing to add a note about removing qbittorrent.pdb. This is a ~100MB file that is part of the installer and is only used for crash reporting, so it is safe to be deleted.

I've also updated the filesize to use the 64-bit version.

Re: PeaExtractor - simple file decompression

If you compare the PeaExtractor and PeaZip/res/ directories, they use almost the same, identical file structure. You can manually copy over the PeaZip files (except the /lang/ and /lang-wincontext/ directories), but that's just more work than I'd like to do. That's why I'm using symlinks, but you're...

Re: What hardware are you using?

I picked up an Intel Compute stick a couple of weeks ago - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_Compute_Stick. Got a good deal on it.

Mostly going to use it for media consumption, but it's good to have a truly portable Windows 10 set up :lol:

Re: youtube-dl - multi-site media/video downloader

XDA doesn't mention the cipher decryption removal that led to youtube-dl being reinstated. Here's the portion of the code that was removed: https://github.com/animelover1984/youtube-dl/commit/0851123c1909558268e8e237214d9c466cf5198d If the video is copyrighted, then youtube-dl will now show an erro...

Re: youtube-dl - multi-site media/video downloader

youtube-dl is back on Github, but they had to remove a block of code regarding cipher decryption:
