« on: March 15, 2014, 09:35 AM »
Hi, I'm been using FeedReader 2.0 this time, it's great and fulfils everything I want..except when I encounter some slow feeds, the images load take more than a second ,and it's hard to read them quickly. Is there another good rss reader that can preload the images>

« on: February 15, 2014, 10:13 PM »
Hi, Msgtag server seems to went down last week, and support is not responding. It's quite a good system but this is annoying. Is there an alternative, or something I can host myself?

General Software Discussion / Collaborative excel
« on: August 02, 2011, 01:47 PM »

I 'm looking for ways to have multiple users working on excel collaboratively. I would like to host it myself, and not on other servers. I do not need full Excel functionality, so I could use another software, it just more entering data and sorting.

General Software Discussion / Mass checksum checker
« on: February 13, 2010, 02:39 AM »

I'm looking for a tool to mass verify checksums, like Advanced Checksum Verifirer, but this tool don't support unicode files, and the author does not respond to emails anymore. Can you recommend any good ones?

General Software Discussion / My wishlist for desktop organizer
« on: May 09, 2009, 05:54 AM »

I have an idea of organizing my desktop, which is cluttered with too many icons. Many people desktop are like that too. So my idea of a perfect tool to organize, is to put them organize into folders on the desktop but when I mouse over them, it will open the folder automatically and show the remaining icons.

It's like having the Start Menu at the corner, only multiple of them in the desktop. Anyone know of such a tool in existance?

General Software Discussion / Folder and CDR Compare
« on: March 12, 2009, 11:47 AM »

I want to ask if anyone has recommendation for a freeware folder compare tool. I used to use TestPath, it's great for testing CDR if they are written correctly, and it works great with folders compare too (over 500 GB). Unfortunately it does not support unicode files.

General Software Discussion / 3rd party software raid 1 in Winxp
« on: December 22, 2008, 04:19 AM »

I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendation for a 3rd party software to do raid 1 mirroring (non system drive) in winxp? I'm familiar with the other options (winxp mirroring hack, on board raid, hardware raid, add on pci card, raid 5, linux etc) but I'm just looking for a software solution which can reliability do mirror in winxp. Any ideas?

General Software Discussion / Disabling Acrobat 8 IE integration
« on: March 24, 2008, 10:27 PM »

Does anyone knows of a way to disable acrobat IE intergration, so when I click on a pdf file, it will ask to save instead of opening automatically? In previous version, there is a nppdf32.dll file to delete, but for version 8, it does not work anymore.

Darn, I hate Acrobat, but the other viewers not ready to replace it.

This has to be one of the worse licensing I ever saw. I bought this software, the silver registration, and now I cannot transfer it to the new computer I bought cos my old machine is retired.


With silver registration you will get:
- Unlimited email support during the first month after the purchase
- No transfer of the program to new computers; - free upgrades are possible but not guaranteed;
no support or help with registration will be provided beyond 1 month after the purchase.

Price: 9.95 $US

With gold registration you will get:
- Unlimited email support during the first 3 years after the purchase;
- 3 year unlimited transfer of the program to new computers (if you buy a new computer you can move 5 Clicks from the old one); - 3 year free upgrades to the newest versions of 5 Clicks.

Price: 19.95 $US

Here I found one alternative freeware which does almost the same, except requiring one extra click. Darn, I will never buy from such company with absurb license.

General Software Discussion / Diagnostic for portable harddisk
« on: October 04, 2007, 10:28 PM »

I'm wondering if anyone knows of a good way to diagnose whether a portable harddrive via USB is failing soon or not. Something like the harddisk manufacturers tool (eg. Western Digital LifeGuard tool) to detect the disk status. Most of them I found can't read USB portable harddisk, the closest one is HD Tune.


I've been looking all around for a way to encrypt data in portable thumbdrives that does not require admin access. Unfortunately most of them require admin or just simpley encrypt file by file. I found this Portable Vault which at least behaves like a folder.


Mouser, perhaps we can try get a mass discount?

General Software Discussion / Security on shared computers
« on: May 31, 2007, 11:02 PM »

I like to discuss about various security measures which should be done when accessing sensitive websites on untrusted computers, which is usually true when using computers or network while on the road.

What I'm thinking is to use Torpark to secure the browser, but this does not defend against keyloggers. On wikipedia which describes keyloggers, there are interesting ways to defeat keyloggers, like using a web based keyboard

What are some of the ways you use to surf securely on the road?

General Software Discussion / CD DVD Autorun
« on: May 08, 2007, 11:30 PM »

I'm looking for a cd autorun creator authoring program. I used to use this freeware but I'm looking for something more professional. Are there any recommendations?

Came across this software for monitoring file changes. Works well and free! Just sharing


Hi, I have a situation with shortcuts and looking for recommendations for software/ways to solve it.

I have a folder containing lots of shortcuts (in multiple sub folders). Now, I want to remove the shortcut and copy the shortcut target to the shortcut location instead. How can I accomplish this?

I've looked around but all I found is is able get the shortcut target one at a time. My shortcuts may link to other folders, so ideally would copy the folder too.

Ps. I can't use hardlink because the shortcut points to different drives.

General Software Discussion / SQX format for compression
« on: January 20, 2006, 12:19 AM »

I recently came to know about the sqx format (Squeez from the recent archive compression review)

Upon some testing, the format does offer compression slightly better as the latest rar 3.0. However, I don't see this format being used widely as rar. I'm contemplating to switch my archives to that format, so I'm a little concerned about its stability (corruption and recovery).

Is there anyone using this format to store their files? Care to comment?


I have some right click context menu entries (Right Click->New) that cannot be deleted. I normally use TweakXP to remove the entries, but these few entries keep reappearing. They are entries to create new MS word, excel, etc from office 2003. How can I delete them?

General Software Discussion / Word AutoCompleter
« on: September 28, 2005, 02:26 PM »

I just to check if you guys know any word auto completer like IntelliComplete

I like it a lot but there are a bug with it, and the authors don't seems to be developing it anymore. So I'm looking for alternatives.

The closet I know is AutoTyping and LetMeType but it doesn't work as well as it.

Drag&Drop Robot / Request - Filter when dragging files
« on: September 18, 2005, 11:52 AM »

Like to make a feature request. When I drag folderx into DDR, I would like to have a filter to run on the files to be added in to list. Difficult to add? Thanks.

Best Archive Tool / New Tool - CompreXX
« on: September 06, 2005, 01:46 AM »
Hi great review on the archivers,

I just found this tool on the winzip slashdot article a few days ago, I think it's a winner over winrar. Why? This archive allows you to explore archives as they were folders (much like winxp zip folder). I was asking for such a tool in another thread, now I found it

Now, mouser, can you please  contact the author to get discount for members before my trial runs out :)

General Software Discussion / Good Folder Printer
« on: August 25, 2005, 01:57 AM »

I've been looking through a few file/folder printer, and can't find one which does this. Basically, I want the output of the folders to be printed with indents eg.

If the folder structure is


Then the output file format (txt or html) looks something like


Anyone has a recommendation for such a program? Preferably freeware.

Drag&Drop Robot / Getting folders only
« on: August 09, 2005, 10:51 AM »

I have question on using Drag Drop Robot 1.08 to zip up files. The sample shows using %2 as a source parameter to the zip program.

When I drag folders into DDR, it becomes like this e.g


What I want is to zip up the files without the C:\folders\.. ie only relative directory structure.

Anyway I can do that without putting all the folders in C:\ drive?
