Download link (http://www.peazip.org/peazip-portable.html) raises a 404 "not found" error. Link instead just to http://www.peazip.org/ or to http://peazip.sourceforge.net/peazip-portable.html.

pdftk Builder 3.6 will not break with pdftk 1.44 in my use of it. However, I would really love to use multibackground and multistamp (the main visible additions to 1.4. which Builder 3.6 was built upon). I still haven't found a gui for Windows that takes this into account, so I am using batch files for this specific purpose.

PDFTK Builder works in Windows 7 x64 and Windows 8.1 x64 too.

This program is really good and if you like it you'll love 'TheSage Dictionary'.

It would be nice to have a G rated version so that I could use it in the classroom. Cool tool though, thank you

Yadabyte Subtext is a text-substitution app that saves you time and keystrokes on frequently used words, phrases and text. For example, entering a text selection and pressing space/enter will instantly substitute your address into the current application.

For example:

  • "DNA" to automatically expand to Deoxyribonucleic acid
  • "Aaddress" (misspelled deliberately) can be set to turn into 1234 Your Address, City, State, etc.
  • "Sig" changes into your email signature

@smaragdus: One thing is one thing and another thing is another thing. I was just noting that the file left behind is located in a temp folder, which does not affect the app's portability or its stealth status. I'm not judging the program's merits or demerits (never used it), and I too think that leaving a DLL behind is not a good practice, but let's not mix things up. A bad, or even a malicious program, can still be portable.

@smaragdus: And don't get me wrong. Your comment is a valuable one.

@lautrepay
I don't get you wrong. In fact I spotted the DLL I mentioned because my anti-virus shrieked (false positive, of course). I was harsh about the developer of Yadabyte Subtext but I really do think it would be better if this DLL was extracted in Yadabyte Subtext program folder (I see no logical reason why it should be extracted in Temp folder). In short, I agree it Yadabyte Subtext is portable but not stealth. Regards and happy new year!

sha calc on 2007-08-21 09:45

very simple utility, the only problem is it's limited to your system memory.
i tried performing a calculation on a file about 1.5GB but it gives me a not enough memory message.
i'm only on 1GB of RAM so i find this utility useless if i want to check the hash values on large files.
for example i regularly download torrent files 2GB - 4GB in size. which would require 4 GB of RAM!!!

Can anyone recommend a different app?
