I don't want a browser addon or plugin. I don't want a web service like Video2MP3. I want a standalone (preferably portable) software that sniffs away at requests, lists video/audio files that are active, and gives you the option to download them as a raw file. Am I being too picky or does anything like this actually exist?

Finished Programs / SOLVED: Dropbox "Desktop"
« on: July 11, 2011, 12:05 AM »
I use Dropbox for a lot of things, including well over 200 portable applications. Almost everything running on my hard drive right now is thinstalled and not touching my Windows registry or drivers and services, which I love. Here is my dilemma though: Of these 200+ portable applications I have, I use 15-20 of them very frequently and it's a pain to clutter the desktop with my all-purpose Dropbox applications. At one point, I had the bright idea to make a "Shortcuts" folder in my Dropbox, but adding shortcuts will not work when synced universally, because paths to shortcuts are "hard" defined and I can't assume that every single Windows computer I sync them to will have that same username/folder structure.

What I had in mind was a "Dropbox Desktop" application that would basically be one program that you could launch, that would basically be a pop-out menu or holder for shortcuts. As it is to be used specifically for Dropbox and Dropbox's synced folders cannot be changed or take their own shape, computer-to-computer. So in this way, "shortcuts" can work and sync universally proplerly, by just assuming the path is "%DROPBOX_FOLDER%\whatever_the_folder_is_thereafter". Does anyone think something like this is possible?

General Software Discussion / Monitoring USB Ports

Is there any Windows application that can tell me show me my available USB ports/hubs and then explain to me or show me what devices are currently connected/active in this ports?

General Software Discussion / Automatic Archiving?
« on: May 04, 2011, 05:21 AM »
I was wondering if any application existed that would automate the archiving (to save disk space) of files in a directory after a certain amount of time? Something that I could specify to archive files in a directory 30 days after they were last created/modified would be great. Anything?

Post New Requests Here / Rename Log
« on: April 28, 2011, 02:08 AM »
I was wondering if there's any application out there that will modify certain folders or files and keep a log of if files in that range are renamed, and what to?
Er, just noticed I accidentally posted this in the Finished Programs section and not Coding Snacks. Sorry about that.

General Software Discussion / Dropbox Shortcuts Holder
« on: March 27, 2011, 04:40 PM »
Okay, I use Dropbox to carry a lot of portable applications. Dropbox installs in different directories on different systems by default and whatnot. Some of these programs I use more frequently then others so I wanted to make shortcuts. I use them across all of my computers and I don't want to make all of these shortcuts on every single computer.

I made a "Shortcuts" directory to throw them in, in Dropbox, but that doesn't work since the absolute path won't be the same across systems. I was wondering if there was some program specifically for Dropbox that I could use as a holder for my shortcuts? I was thinking some standalone program that you can launch within Dropbox and toss all your Dropbox shortcuts in and it just sets the path based on your Dropbox installation directory + directory within the Dropbox.

General Software Discussion / Temporary Toggled Port Blocking
« on: March 04, 2011, 09:49 AM »
I need an application (other than a basic firewall) that I can basically turn on or off that will basically allow me to see a list of programs with active connections to the internet that are sending and receiving and allow me to temporarily suspend those applications so that they do not have access to the internet.

Any ideas?

General Software Discussion / Serial Key Storage for Windows
« on: February 25, 2011, 03:22 AM »
There'a a million for Mac:
Any for Windows? I mean, I know I could just use KeepassX or something, but that's sort of a bummy way to go about it, was hoping for something specific to serials.
