Tiny Windows apps from Blue Yonder
« on: June 15, 2008, 11:42:51 AM »
Most of these goodies edit: apps  are from year 2005, but a small number are still updated. I found seven programs that I simply must try out...

Most programs offered here are updated from time to time. Check the version number to make sure you have the latest versions!

For some programs you will also need a file called BWCC.DLL which you probably already have. If not click here to obtain the latest version as BWCC.ZIP.

Some Useful Windows Programs (and some just fun!)

ZapNums.exe, (Ver 3.2 November 2005) NEW Are you tired of mp3 and similar files having filenames that start with numbers? Well, this program will run through a whole directory and its subdirectories searching for such files and removing the leading numerals for you! Various files types can be specified or all files examined. To download version 3.2 of ZapNums Click here (200 KB)

NoNums.exe (Ver 3.0 Sept 2005). Is very similar to ZapNumbs (above) but has added entertainment! To downwoad NoNums (750 KB) click here

Setsongs.exe, (Ver 2.30 October 2005) Tired of the Microsoft 'Brooom' as Windows loads ? Put a copy of this program in your Startup Folder and have a selection from the tunes of your choice played instead! Or, as an alternative have the date and time announced in (for now) a rather bizzare voice. Download (1.1MB) by clicking here.

Easter.exe, (Ver 5.00) November 2007 This program will not only calculate the dates for Easter and many other 'festivals' and details of the Psalms Appointed for any day but also includes the full text of the Psalms and search routines. Click here to download (326KB)

New SpotDiff.exe (Ver. 1.30 April 2007) is a small game of 'Spot-the-Difference). There are 10 pairs of pictures each with 10 differences. (NB. One picture contains nudes (non-pornographic)). Because of the graphic content, this is a large file (5MB plus). To download SpotDiff.zip click here

Biblos.exe, (Ver 2.73) This little program is for keeping track of your books round the house. Do you know which shelf the book you want is on? And do you know who you lent it too if it isn't there?

I have now tried the seven files that I downloaded, but I must say that I will not be keeping any of them... "goodies" is such a big word.

BTW: GeoClock is 16 bits, and SpotDiff is for 800x600  :down:

Updated January April 2010, but it is still very little the high number of applications have to offer. And quite a number are outdated anyway.
