After years of using to use Balabolka I officaly gave up and bought textaloud a couple days ago.

Balabolka has for years had a strange bug where the longer it runs in the background the longer the delay it takes when you hit the "read selected text" hotkey.

TextAloud doesn't have this issue and not having to restart Balabolka every hour feels like a massive weight has been lifted from my shoulders.

I don`t think so. I download the zip, run FontViewOK_x64_p.exe (from a folder called FontViewOK) and the data gets stored in the AppData folder initially. No big deal, once I moved the ini file it`s been fine.

The program uses the Tor network's hidden services feature to send messages between peers with authentication and encryption based on public key exchange.

Also available for Linux.

TorChat author has moved the project page.

+++ Feb-05, 2012: This project has been moved to github https://github.com/prof7bit/TorChat +++
Further development of TorChat will continue at github, effective immediately. I have not yet decided what should happen to this project page and repository here at googlecode, for now I will just leave it as it is and just not update it any longer, I will mark all downloads as deprecated and eventually remove the project page, close the issue tracker and maybe even commit an rm -rf to the svn repository.

May be it is worth to update the links.

TreeCopy is a unique directory copier taking the various folders the source folder to a set of empty target folders. Its unique from similar tools as it copies only the directory structure and not the files. This is useful for developers and in testing.

This functionality is similar to the windows command line "xcopy" i.e. XCOPY source [destination] /T /E, but this tool allows this action without needing to remember command line switches.

I like user interface, but TreeCopy do not copy my file or folder.

shnbwmn on 2015-12-07 09:34

According to the website, it also works on Win 7 and 8. I'm hesitant to use it on Win 10 since it says "TreeCopy will only work successfully on these specific Windows operating systems:", and then doesn't list Win 10.

Sorry to disagree with you, Midas, but I found this font viewer to be one of the most elementary and nearly worthless that I have ever seen. There are dozens and dozens of free font viewers out there and virtually all of them are better than this one. I just hope this one got the sixth grade student a passing grade in Introduction to Computer Programming.

I agree with Midas on this one. I just want a "viewer" and this one does exactly what I need it to do. When I want to review and select a font for a project, this one is quick and simple to use. I recently tried NexusFont and didn't like all the unnecessary functions and the clunky GUI. This one works for me.

Have been using Metapad and then Metapad360 for 15+ years
The range of text formatting tools are amazing.
My fav is "quote" Alt+Q, which inserts your custom string at col.1 of all selected lines/paragraphs/pages. Notepad++ does a similar thing BUT not all in col.1 ... Metapad makes it much easier to spot the "quoted" lines.
I am using "'o" , without the quotes, as my quote string.

Nice try, but... If you want a really cool and free daily reminder program, try DateTrac, available at soucek.clearwire.net/filetrac.html It reminds you at system boot time then exits, rather than remaining in your tray and sucking resource all day long. ZERO registry entries, so it's totally portable. Give it a try.

Cornflower on 2010-11-12 23:30

Nice look and feel. However, I gauge any reminder system by whether it can do the Thanksgiving (2nd Tuesday October in Canada or 4th Thursday November USA), or every x weeks. This one unfortunately doesn't do either.
