... the old plugins should still work.

-sorry, I was wrong! The features from the old plugins are now incorporated, of course...


The new QTTabBar is not yet my favourite, to say the least. As I said on the other thread, (http://www.donationcoder....=8022.msg356503#msg356503), new users and users like me are left "unattended". I find there are far too many new questions to ask before I can expect to have this app working to my liking.

As an example: In general I hate shortcuts. Of course they are brilliant - we wouldn't want to compute without them! - but I keep forgetting their combinations! And as such, (forgotten), they are worthless to me. Of course the number of shortcuts in the new version "512" is a witness of many features, but to me it's also a problem waiting for me, because Quizo has not explained anything. I don't understand the words in half of the choices I have to make, so I hope there is a user's forum somewhere, but I have not yet found such.

Why am I whining? My reason is of course that QTTabBar has been a love of mine for many years, but now parts of it are not even friendly!

Now bear in mind that this is not a file manager, but merely an extension for Explorer:

It has now been 13 months without a word from the young "ShiningMasamune", and I find it safe not to say, I don't trust updates are coming, but to say, I trust updates are not coming.

One can say Quizo not made it easy for any one to understand what went on. I am now guessing he simply don't want to debate in English (https://twitter.com/QTTabBar is Japanese only). But English or not, he is updating his program!

http://qttabbar.wikidot.com/qttabbar is the new black AGAIN. Sadly it is also too black. New users are completely left unattended... abandoned... There is no help whatsoever of any kind. Maybe that is one of the reasons that there now is a 3½MB zip container named "Source codes and Plugin Lib". So what about it, reader, are you a coder?

At the top of the homepage there is a line saying "Create account or Sign In". It has really nothing to do with QuizoApps, but is for wikidot.com only.

I don't remember Pale Moon crashing, and I don't know how to make it do it at my command, so instead I restarted after 400MB of the 1.2GB Mint download. No problem, the download went on as if nothing had happened. Can I crash Pale Moon on purpose?

-oh, it was both the wrong picture and the wrong link!
Well, that's what can happen in the hurry I was in. Sorry!

The above button number "6" was what I thought I was showing:


Free PDF Tools 6:
Add Header and Footer

This FREE PDF Tool can add header and footer information that is used to present information, such as date, time, page numbers, or the title of the document, in the top or bottom margins of a document.

There are options:

    You can add header, footer or both.

    You can decide whether the header or footer is shown on the first page.

    You can decide whether the page number is shown automatically.

    You can add some text string before or after the page number.

    You can adjust the alignment on the PDF Page and the page offset if you want to begin with higher or lower value.

    You can change the text string's Font Encode,  Font Name, Font Style, Font Size and Font Color.

    You can define the left, right, bottom and top margins from page edge.

    You can resume the options from last saving.

Here are the steps on how to Add Header and Footer into PDF Pages:

  • 1. Choose  Free PDF Tools > Add Header and Footer
  • 2. Select a PDF file that you want to add header and footer.
  • 3. The Add Header and Footer dialog box comes up:

Back in 2007 you were using PDFTK, maybe you have also been using their PDFtk Server? I don't know these apps, so I am not sure if they even can do what you ask for.

I remember trying to test this one on 64-bits Win 7, but couldn't make it work. I now see it hasn't been updated since August 2010, so I wonder if it is worth the asking price...

It hasn't been mentioned in our forum for several years, (probably because it wasn't updated for 4½ yrs), but now (since 30 January 2014) the calculator SpeedCrunch 0.11 is out of "alpha", and is ready for your keyboard, while looking good at the same time! If you are anything like me, you will understand to appreciate the included formula book!

http://speedcrunch.blogspot.dk/ ("dk": I am in dk, but the server is in USA. Will you be redirected?)

Quote from: SpeedCrunch 0.11
Oh-Eleven brings you syntax highlighting on the result display, predefined color schemes, instant function usage help, digit grouping, new languages, a slightly redesigned formula book with new sections, lots of visual perks, and a new icon. You can now include comments in the expression - everything after a question mark (?) will be ignored and highlighted differently. Finally, both comma and dot are now accepted as radix characters.

Their site is fancy looking, I guess -
click one of the upper icons (exe, dmg, zip):



The input field is black on black, and
the included formula book is right at hand:



SpeedCrunch will give you wonderfully useful guidelines:

Quote from: File upload complete
Hello from Zamzar !
There was a problem converting your file - We attempted to perform the conversion you requested from wpd to pdf but unfortunately the conversion failed.

-so I went and installed Free Viewer; it is surprisingly good at reading wpd files. It read your original wpd file without major problems; it was very much like your uploaded pdf file, but Free Viewer can only save as Doc or RTF, not from WPD to PDF, sorry.

I have maybe 3000 fonts, so I was embarrassed to see that your uploaded wpd file's fonts are not being displayed properly (but your pdf file did not provoke such errors):


Free Viewer "Save as RTF":



This is a screenshot of how Free Viewer is displaying your uploaded wpd file, page 1:

But apart from converting via RTF, I am unable to convert your uploaded file into PDF.

-thanks a lot, diva. I was so ecstatic to find no symptoms, that I simply didn't think to call for an ambulance, but merely made a normal reservation after the holiday at my private doctors', via her homepage. This was stupid, very stupid, because there is nothing there can be done, if one is not at the hospital, and she could not even write down my incident as being Real Life, because of the lack of evidence.

Wow, Curt.  Sounds like you've had a bad day/week/month.

-yeah, diva, you're right. Two blood clots, one in each leg, two days before Eastern. I was lucky, no symptoms, except for pains in the muscles - but it clearly was reflected in my mood. To my defence, I did answer the question about my 4 top go-to programs ;-)

... programs that are absolutely at the top of your daily list that you'd be annoyed not to have around. The trap here is that second tier that are useful but only on occasion.

-were you trapped ("useful but only on occasion")? How can a text browser ever be "at the top of your daily list"? It's not even able to really tell what it looks like itself, because it cannot display pictures!! Also, extremely many pages on the Internet will not make sense if "displayed" in Lynx. It must be used for something other than the "normal" Internet. This browser is a complete mystery to me.


Almost all of my favourite programs from the past have been abandoned, so I guess my favourites of the present also may be abandoned some time in the future - so what if I like (FastStone Capture) this (Pale Moon) or that (jetAudio was updated!!) program (Dynamic-Photo HDR 5)? Tomorrow will be a different story.

If an audiophile truly wants "as it was intended in the studio" sound, all they need to do is cruise eBay for some Yamaha NS-10s which were the most common studio near-field monitors for years.  That is, the speakers the engineers and producers listened to when doing recording, mixing and mastering.
That's not really true.  Yamaha NS-10 speakers have a harsh sound that tends to exaggerate sound defects.  That makes them useful for monitoring certain types of recordings because you're more likely to spot problems before committing them to the can. 

I agree with xtabber on this.

In the end of December 2012, a copy of the original British CFi ShellToys version 7.4 came out of Russia. It wasn't malware, but a copy. I know nothing about who, how or why, but since then, there have been no updates, and now the entire company has vanished. The new owner ("Rob Young") may be campaigning for some Usual Suspect-title, because "Rob Young" is associated with about 105 other domains!

Soft Organizer 3.40 is available as a Giveaway of the day! You have 23 hours to download and install it.

Publisher:    ChemTable.com   
Homepage: http://www.chemtable.com/soft-organizer.htm
File Size:    12.5 MB
Price:    The program is available for $30, but it will be free for our visitors as a time-limited offer

My guess is that the rather silly name is the reason I never have heard of it before; The features are spot on, making it a worthy challenger to Revo Uninstaller Pro:

Quote from: Giveaway of the day, 9. April 2014
click thumb to enlarge:

Soft Organizer is an excellent and very easy to use application to install and uninstall programs completely. Applications can be installed with tracking, which means the tool records all places in the system where the installed program leaves traces. In the future, these data allow removing that program completely, including all leftovers that may stay in the system after regular uninstalling using the Control Panel.

Soft Organizer is also equipped with a search mechanism to find traces of programs that were not tracked automatically. For programs you prefer to keep installed, Soft Organizer can check for available new versions and notify you about them with a special symbol in the application list. The built-in rating system provides a way to locate and get rid of unneeded and low-quality products.

Allows you to remove traces of programs that were not tracked while installing (powered by the Full Uninstall technology).

Installs apps and tracks changes in the system to enable removing tracked elements later (powered by the Full Uninstall technology).

Program rating allows you to evaluate installed applications. The rating is calculated based on the total number of users who have removed this app from the computer shortly after installation.

If the purpose of some program in the list looks vague, you can view its description by clicking the special question icon near the program title (not available for all programs).

For installed programs there’s an option to check for newer versions of a program. This allows you to keep applications up-to-date, as well as to eliminate bugs and problems caused by the outdated versions.

Automatic creation of restore points during the removal of application residues indemnifies the system against any possible emergency.


You can easily remove even multiple applications in Soft Organizer by simply selecting all programs you don’t need anymore and clicking "Uninstall".

For those setup packages that support silent install, you can install applications in the "no questions asked" mode in one click.

When you contact the support staff of a company, they may ask you about the programs installed on your computer. You can easily get such a list in a few clicks. The list is saved as an HTML file that is easy to open and to read.

The list of programs can be sorted by various parameters (install date, tracking status, title, and others) for instant search for given apps in the list.

With quick search, you can find a desired application almost immediately, as long as you know its title or a portion of it. The list dynamically shortens as you type the text in the search box.

The Agent allows you to detect if an installer is launched and initiate installation tracking without manually starting Soft Organizer.

Soft Organizer automatically updates to new versions. You don’t need to visit the website of the program or download or install the tool manually. You simply click the Update button, and the program does the rest.
