Hey Ren,

Looks like the download link is offline, can we get an updated download link? (or just attach to forum post?)

Interesting because this just popped up to Slashdot:

" Does Anyone Make a Photo De-Duplicator For Linux? Something That Reads EXIF?

It's impossible to delete all the dupes manually and create a singular, accurate photo image base? Is there an app out there that can scan a file system, perhaps a target sub-folder system, and suck in the images-- WITHOUT creating duplicates? Perhaps by reading EXIF info or hashes? I have eleven file systems saved, and the task of eliminating dupes seems impossible."

From Renny's description:
"Lets you choose an "original" and "duplicate" folder to search in
Finds duplicates by file size, file signature (file hash), or photo signature (pixel data hash)
Lets you delete individual photos or many photos at once"

So while a couple of the Slashdot Poster's desired features may be missing, the pattern match was too good to ignore.

Heh "Monetization Opportunity"!

Thanks. I've updated the links.

Funny, the only time I hear anything about these is when someone can't download them. :)

Nah... Too much trouble. I think I'm about done with doing any more public software releases. I think I've got 1 or 2 more, and then that's it - packing it in.

I like developing desktop software, and it's a dying market. People do stuff on their phones that I just have no interest in. I hate the "app" world and the walled gardens. Crapware is moving into the browser and cloud, and I am not remotely interested in being at the mercy of a browser or supporting the destruction of user-controlled data by doing any kind of cloud "app". I like having "my" software on "my" desktop with "my" data. Everything that's going on now is simply antithetical to the kind of software that I love and enjoy writing.

There are a limited number of online things that I like doing, but... I like a desktop client interacting with the web, and not shoddy web pages that barely work.

Three years ago, I sorta laughed at Paul Thurrott's emphasis on all the "Cloud" stuff, but maybe he was "half right" (with an agenda). I keep wondering why some company doesn't just produce a "phone sized PC" that you just plug into a monitor. All of those new tricks - solid state drive, miniturization, 2 USB ports with no need for a DVD player, etc. They almost had it a couple times at the various CES (Consumer Electronic Shows), but then they sorta faded away.

It's gotta be possible one of these days.

So then you just get those Princeton guys to write it up "why we like Walled Gardens".
