General Software Discussion / What to use on a 32GB flash drive?
« on: April 24, 2015, 01:46 PM »
So I've recently bought a 32 GB flash drive, I'm planning on using it for installing OS, booting live versions etc.
I've used YUMI to add bootable files to it, and what I have on it so far is:
- Windows 7 32bit/64bit installation
- Windows XP installation (Yes, I know  :P there's still some older people around me used to it and not wanting any changes  :D)
- Slitaz 4.0 lightweight linux OS (I'm open to alternatives, it was just my first, let's say random choice)
- Backtrack 5 (it seems now that Kali is the new/better version, any thoughts or experiences on that?)
- Hiren's Boot CD

YUMI adds some Windows 7 files (such as setup.exe) into root, a bit annoying, but I've put all of these folders and files into hidden state, just so it doesn't get messed with if I borrow the flash drive to someone else.
So, what I'm asking is what else should I add to it? I'd be glad to hear what Portable Apps software to add to it as well, along with any bootable stuff recommendations!

And while I'm at it, recommend any free file backup alternatives, since I'll add some space on it for a TrueCrypt (7.1a) container to keep some files safe as they can be.
Thanks!

Find And Run Robot / FARR Plugin Request: RSS Reader
« on: November 04, 2013, 12:03 PM »
Hello everyone!

I've did a few searches and I haven't been able to find any, so I wanted to ask is it possible to create a plugin that would show rss feeds?
For example, you type in the box: rss sitename and in normal FARR dropdown list it would show latest rss feeds from that particular site. Clicking on a result would either open the news in default browser or if possible (I'm a beginner at this, so I just list out ideas) in FARR's browser window that's called by "igo" command (maybe even make it an option to pick between those two).

I know it's not really a thing a launcher should do, but I feel that it might be quite useful for checking out news, and if it actually can open them in FARR's browser, that would be a fast way of reading the news out. Or if there's possibility, some kind of showing the popup (on mouseover or hotkey) on that news would show the text of the article (limited by characters to just show what's the news about, or if it can take the full text, even better). To better explain this idea (at least to Trillian users), something that trillian does when you mouse over a link is that it shows a popup with only text from that website. Since not only news sites use rss feeds, I believe this can be useful in quite number of ways to be updated on things you want.

I hope I explained my idea well and that it can be done!
Thanks :D
