@Kermode: Cathy can handle different drives on the same drive letter; however if you catalog on (F:), and later plugin your drive, while (F:) is being used; and you get the drive letter (G:), the database cannot be refreshed.

SteveJ on 2011-04-03 00:06

Simple little program, but unfortunate doesn't support unicode, so if you have any files w/ foreign language or other special characters, they'll get cataloged as "?" for any unicode character.

I never ever thought of using the installer, I was just testing the download link- the problem with the installer download doesn't appear for the first time. However both primary download links (installer & archive) work fine now.
Thanks to the developer for maintaining and improving the program and for not ruining the interface (so far) like many other freeware developers did recently.

YUMI uses syslinux to boot extracted distributions stored on the USB device and reverts to using grub to Boot Multiple ISO files from USB, if necessary.

YUMI works much like Universal USB Installer, except it can be used to install more than one distribution to run from your USB. Distributions can also be uninstalled.

Then later on I learned about some features of Explorer that could be turned off using this program, so I did that. It worked both times without any problems. I like that you can undo the changes too if you like. Good program. Thanks for updating this.

I like the neat gui for MicroSIP, but can't make outgoing calls at all, getting a 'connection timeout' message; and after answering an incoming call, can neither hear or be heard by caller.
Bizarre; use the same settings as for PhonerLite, and when MicroSIP is running, it registers with my VOIP provider (Sipgate) OK, but ... zilch!

Why all the fuss over RAR? The biggest problem is getting RAR to ZIP so it's compatible to more people in the world, not less. 1980 called, they want their compressor back.

Midas on 2014-05-25 19:18

The changelog posted is for ArcConvert v0.66, plus there now seems to be a 64 bits version linked at the bottom of the Sourceforge page ("Update for 64bit OS").

Note also that although WinRAR gives you a 30 day trial, as the meme goes, it will never end...

DavidRoper: even among very technical people, I can't seem to get anyone to use anything but ZIP. The dream of getting people to use one of a number of radically better compression formats has been going on for over a decade now and at this stage just seems like a lost cause.

Just gave this a try and I'm quite impressed!

You can tell that the developer used Photoshop as an inspiration and it shows.

A shame that the developer has ceased work on it, but for a 4.79 MB app, it's way more than I initially expected.

Perhaps the best Photoshop clone you've never heard of. Recommended!

One of the best image editors. Amazing that it has layers and it loads so fast unlike paint.net.

TAudioConverter 0.9.6 (0.9.6 Build 3774) has been just released.

BGM on 2014-08-22 14:50

Hey, if you all use the installer, be careful! It has some very subtle "other" stuff bundled in there. Make sure you read every panel. "Other" stuff includes "Search Protect" and "Trovi Search" which changes your search pages and home pages. PUSH SKIP. There is another one that tries to install (but I can't get it to do it after cancelling the installation once) and you have to push "disagree" in order not to install it.

A derivative, newer (3.7) version of this software, still being developed and supported, is available from PortableApps via this link: http://portableapps.com/apps/music_video/wxmp3gain-portable

The previous version has been withdrawn from their database on grounds of non-portability; the download link given leads to the Sourceforge page for this withdrawn (and out-of-date) version.

Desktop Info v1.10.1
Nice enough looking gizmo at first,
but accessing the right-click context menu settings under WinXP works haphazardly at best,
and most often starts a blinking epilepsy.
Only way to exit then is from Task Manager three-finger salute process kill...:-(

Anyone else experiencing this puzzling behaviour ?

Just another great program from Nirsoft..very handy.

Specular on 2019-08-27 09:52

Particularly useful since it keeps a log in the main window of files that get deleted immediately following creation, which allows one to see more of what is occurring than merely looking at files that have remained searchable on the disk.

SuperF4 v1.4

billon on 18 Feb 2019
  • 37KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 16 Feb 2019
  • Suggested by I am Baas

SuperF4 allows users to kill the foreground program when the key combination Ctrl+Alt+F4 is pressed. This is different from programs that respond to Windows' normal "close" hotkey Alt+F4, which only asks the foreground program to exit. This is important because many programs don't cooperate with a close request due to a bug, nag screens, or other issues.

Additionally, you can also kill a process by pressing Win+F4 and then clicking the window you wish to kill with your mouse. This mode behaves like xkill for GNU/Linux, BSD etc.

  • Fixed keyboard input lag. Thanks to Victor Robertson.
  • Do not enter xkill mode if Ctrl key is pressed. Ctrl+Win+F4 is a new shortcut to close virtual desktops, so we don’t want to prevent that. Thanks to José Rebelo.
  • Add a process blacklist, with explorer.exe in the list by default.

I apologize for my tardiness. I use Windows less and less every year, and I must confess that I have not even been running my own programs when I do. I hope this release makes up for it somewhat.
