YUMI v2.0.4.2 Updated

billon on 22 Feb 2017
  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 22 Feb 2017
  • Suggested by webfork

YUMI (Your Universal Multiboot Installer) can be used to create a multi-boot USB flash drive containing multiple operating systems, antivirus utilities, disc cloning, diagnostic tools, and more. Aside from a few distributions, all files are stored within the Multiboot folder, making for a nicely organized Multiboot Drive that can still be used for other storage purposes. 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.

Note: YUMI v2.x can't remove distributions previously installed with Legacy YUMI! Although no longer supported, you can still Download Legacy YUMI.

Quick Cliq is a portable menu based application launcher and productivity tool that speeds up your daily computer activities by giving you links to folders, files, programs, links, and command line operations as well as window management, extreme clipboard manipulation, and “Memos” that hold frequently used bits of text, like e-mail signatures. All of this is provided in a compact menu that you can show anywhere and within any application or window without even taking your hand off the mouse. Because the menu is hidden when not in use it does not take up your valuable screen real estate, but stays on alert and shows quickly when it’s needed via a hot key or mouse gesture. The system requirements for Quick Cliq are extremely minimal and can operate well on even the oldest and slowest machines.

Free Download Manager (FDM) is a feature-rich tool for handling and accelerating downloads. Includes a site explorer, offline website downloader, scheduler, video downloader (YouTube, Google Video, etc.), BitTorrent support, and more. An included media file preview prevents downloading mislabeled music or video while a ZIP file preview tool saves download time and bandwidth by selectively removing unneeded parts.

Especially useful to overcome unreliable/slow connections that require frequent download restarts, when bandwidth is at a premium, or for very large files.

Alternatively, Free Download Manager Portable is available, as well as a "lite" version, which has not been tested for portability.

NOTE: Version 5 of this program is not portable (thanks Joby) and uses a closed-source license.

General warning:
Databases used with 7.2 are not compatible with v7.13 or earlier.

As the free version is mostly used around here I doubt this next warning is really needed but just in case. V7.2 shipped with a bug in the networking system that makes it impossible to use the business edition networking feature with user accounts. At the time it is strongly advised to avoid updating to version 7.2 if you use the business/network edition.

Very happy: I just used this program to help track down the least-used channel in an area with a LOT of wireless connections and a lot of interference. This saved a lot of time, effort and energy (including electricity as multiple devices keep rebroadcasting their data).

I was also impressed by the amount of data it pulled from the various WIFI services in the area. Great program.

For sure a must-have utility. Basic enough still (luckily) but with great potential. A very big time saver especially in corporate environments where you can have a deep folder structure to switch quick to your favourite folders. Very useful also when saving files to folders and you what to access that folder quickly to save. In active development. Check it out. The smalest and back-to-basic programs are often the best ones in general. This one belongs to the list.

@Napiophelios: Likely won't work for WoW or any other network game produced after about 1999, because they look for game activity (positions and actions and other more clever things) for determining idle players, which has nothing to do with your computer sleeping or screensaving. Pressing F15 (which is what I assume this program does once per 59 seconds) has nothing to do with gameplay so it won't reset any idle timer on the server side.

@Shadeclan: Maybe your virus scanner software makes a full scan of all exe files when the menu is displayed, although the files are just opened to pick the icon. (I had the same problem when I used "MS Essentials" for a while.)

I'm having the same problem with another launcher, and horst explanation seems pretty accurate to me...

I can't get this software to work at all. Have reverted to PhonerLite, which has a clumsy interface but works OK. 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!

In spite of the adware issues, I think this is the easiest-to-use and to setup CPU temperature application. It's on all my PCs and I've never had a problem with it. Just set it and forget it. The digital temperature display in the system tray is very visible and useful when resource-heavy apps are running. I'm surprised this isn't rated higher.

What perplexes me about this program is its clandestine development. If one opens its history page:
http://www.eonet.ne.jp/~gakana/tablacus/history/
one will see that "Fix minor bugs" & "Minor changes" prevail but there are no details whatsoever about them.

xor on 2016-09-26 20:13

Usage of Tablacus suits me better than Q-Dir, but it started to suffer that typical 98% CPU wacko thing that chased me away, Q-Dir also continues to be buggy since XP up to Win10 at refreshing the folders tree after deletion, renaming, etc (some times). I'm started to get suited with Double commander although still missing Drag-Select.

ripu on 2016-10-14 14:42

@xor I am not sure if I understand you. But, refreshing in general spikes the cpu. If I am at the desktop, without opening any software and start hitting refresh, the cpu will be at 99%.

FileOptimizer v9.60 Updated

billon on 18 Feb 2017
  • 109MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 18 Feb 2017
  • Suggested by I am Baas

FileOptimizer is a broad format file compression tool used to reduce file size without changing the quality, known as "lossless." This is done via wide variety of optimization and recompression tools and techniques. Original files are sent to the recycle bin for restoration in the event the uncompressed version is preferred. A long list of supported formats include audio/video (MP3, OGG, M4A), image (GIF, JPEG, PNG), office formats (DOCX, XLSX, ODT, PDF), and system files (DLL, EXE).

Supports drag-and-drop of files into the window or onto the program icon. Note that by default the program removes metadata for many file types. This information reduces overall file size and protects privacy but is important to some users (e.g. photographers) and file search tools.

A 64-bit version is available within the folder, the author reports the program is functional in WINE, and can be used on the command line.

    • Not properly passing PDF profile to Ghostcript.
  • Ghostrcript is automatically disabled when no downsampling is selected, because it is always downsampling images even if -dDownsampleColorImages=false -dDownsampleGrayImages=false -dDownsampleMonoImages=false are specified.
  • Make sure TempDirectory is created to avoid certain plugins crash.
  • Patched Guetzli and Mutool plugins to be compatible with Windows XP.

The end user has very few rights these days, no matter what product/service we're talking about. In this case maybe blocking its process using a firewall is a viable solution for some users.

I blocked all connects from the player + screensaver with Windows Firewall (using Windows Firewall Control).

This is arguably the best video player out right now as of February 2017. It beats Zoomplayer in terms of polish, features, and style.

I have been using FastStoned for several years and I really like it very much. It does everything I want almost intuitively, I have used other capture programs in the past but none compare to FastStoned.I use just about every day either resizing or cropping a pic so I'm glad it’s always here 4me.

I'm a great fan of this program. And, as I've said before, just when you think FastStone Image Viewer can't get better the developers come up with another gem ... this time it supports dual instances, which allows you to run two image viewers at the same time, drag and drop images between them, and compare images from different folders side by side. Well done FastStone!

I've been using the FS Image viewer for some time and it is a very useful app that I use all the time, I hope to get the same usefulness from this new program.Thanks for the hard work.

@ MILKO: It was entered to the TPFC-database in January, 2007 ... so I won't call it a "new" program.
Maybe it's new to you ;)
