FARR - Launch Your Apps and Find Your Files Quickly
I had been using launchy as my preferred program launcher for quite some time, until I found FARR... There are plenty of options and functionality offered by FARR to satisfy all. If you are a diligent tweaker, you have loads of options to play with and customize according to your taste. If you are an average user, use the default options and you are good to go. The large plugin list and an involved community provide the icing on the FARR Cake!

Paste As File

PasteAsFiless.png
Paste As File has been updated to v2.1.0.0

I have changed the UI to allow easier editing of the file name without having to also type the extension.

It now also supports pasting as RTF (rich text format) files. This will allow you to copy formatted text from applications such as Microsoft Word and paste as a RTF file and keep the text formatting intact. There are some applications that may not keep the formatting when pasting to a RTF file. You will just have to test your application to see.

  • Input formats: pdf, jpg, png, gif, tif, & bmp
  • Output formats: cbz, cb7, cbt, & cbr

Due to the WinRAR license, I am not allowed to distribute the rar.exe necessary for .cbr support. Therefore, if you want .cbr support, you must provide your own rar.exe file.  Thanks to lanux128 for the idea.

sCheckbook

DC Member Skwire continues to his path to world domination with another application release!

TitlesCheckbook
DescriptionSimple checkbook or bank account register.  I wrote this as a simple way for my daughters to keep track of their money.  As such, there are no fancy features like reporting, etc., nor will there be.  The application, however, does offer export to CSV and HTML formats.  I feel there are plenty of other full-featured account tracking applications out there and I don't want to reinvent the wheel.

Coding Snack: Scissors - separate .txt file at any specified punctuation mark

blog clipart
A user requests:

"I need to be able to separate text at any specified punctuation mark onto it's own line and then insert a blank line between it and the next separation.  If this can be done simply (I only use a computer, I have no idea of how they do what they do).  I assume this can be done via something like the find & replace box."

DONE: App that keeps track of money you find

blog clipart
Original request from the Coding Snacks forum:

Very often I am finding money; usually coins or small bills that have been lost or dropped.  Am wanting an app that would keep track of this over time, break-down amounts by currency found and type (coins, bills, some of both) (example: 13 nickels, two $1 bills) and total dollar amount found (examples: today $2.25, 2009 $31.47) and could compare or graph this information.  Would also like an option to enter the location of where it was found, have the app keep track of recurring locations (mall parking lot, city park, etc...) and list or graph totals over time by location.  Was thinking this would almost be a great smart-phone app, but whatever platform would be cool!  Thanks!

Coding Snack: sWavPlayer - Wave file player without any gui

blog clipart
DC member highend01 requests:

I'm desperately looking for a simple .wav player that doesn't have any gui at all.

It should have the following features:
- Can be invoked via a e.g. dos prompt (e.g. wavplayer.exe <file> [option])
option = /exit (quit the player after playing the file)
- Works under x86 _and_ x64 systems (WinXP - Win7)
- Portable, configuration files should not be needed

I've used microwav before I switched to Win 7 x64 which worked fine under any x86 environment but fails under x64.
