I just wanted to thank you guys for your support and especially Donation Coder for posting about this. It has become incredibly hard for "small" specialized sites like mine in past years and the outlook itself is rather grim I'd say.

Thanks all.

Well deserved. An "n" more for my name though please ;)

Your payment seems to have come through now. I have changed the maximum limit from 1000 to 100, which should improve the slider's usability.

I just tested it in Chrome 34 and it is working fine. Any script blocking extensions or userscripts that you may be running?

Wraith, which browser and version are you using? I just tested it and it is working fine on my end, using Firefox 29.

And thanks so much Mouser for spreading the word ;)

I have talked to a few of the writers and they were notified about cuts about a week ago, but completely stunned that cuts meant the whole site. They still cannot really believe what happened and have no explanation for it, but you can be sure that they find homes somewhere else pretty soon.

I cannot see a difference when accessing sites like Not sure why..

Post New Requests Here / Re: Recycle Bin Configurator

Thanks Phil, Binmanager comes close to what I'm looking for except that it does not provide enough options (only delete by date). It runs fine on Windows 7 and Vista on the other hand.

Post New Requests Here / Recycle Bin Configurator
« on: April 12, 2010, 10:39 AM »
I just read the article about the python command line tool Autotrash (written by Ronan on Ghacks, here is the homepage of the script.) which as the name implies automatically deletes the trash based on criteria like remaining disk space, deletion date and regular expressions.

I tried to find a Windows program that would offer a similar functionality but could not find one. What I'm looking for is a program that would automatically deleted the trash based on rules that the user can define.

A rule could be set to delete all files in the recycle bin that have been there for more than a week, or delete all files if the disk space gets to low or delete files that are not of the type doc or text.

It would be great if the program could be scheduled in the Windows Task Manager so that it could be run on a regular basis.

Maybe such a program exists, if it does I would love to hear about it.

Thanks a lot, have reviewed your app

Interesting application. Can you name one or two scenarios where you make use of the app?

Some great stuff is coming in the next 24 days, even some "everyone gets one" programs. But each to its own, it is not that I'm forcing someone to participate ;)

Yeah thanks for telling ;) You can check out this url for the links to the giveaways and a sneak peek of the software that will be given away on the next day. Today is Winzip 14 day btw :P

And shame on you that you are using an Adblocker to visit my site ;)

Thanks Mouser, I tried to add at least one tool for every situation (web browser, operating system). There are dozens if not hundreds more but I figured it would not make a huge difference to add another 40-50 web services that would all offer the same functionality.

Well I'm going to give it a try. And Cat Power.. Is very nice!

I was thinking of a semi-transparent tab wheel either in the center of the page or around the mouse position.

I only looked at the titles and pictures ;)

No one ever agrees on top lists as it mostly comes down to personal likes and dislikes. I'd probably include a few of the games mentioned in my toplist but there are way to many games that will probably not make it into the toplists of the majority. Then some games are missing that are universally considered to be legendary, i.e. Warcraft 2 (or 3), Starcraft, Day of The Tentacle, Monkey Island, Kotor, Dark Forces II and so on ;)

And I really hate sites that divide their articles into little snippets to increase their pageviews.

Lashiec well it concentrates on software that we have reviewed which is basically all good freeware of this world (j/k). But yes, in essence it is freeware updates with links to additional information.

Hej all,

it's a joint project that was first supposed to become a feed only but we decided to create a website based on that. It basically offers a feed that gets updated whenever a software that has been reviewed at one of the sites gets updated. Most of it is automated but some has to be done by hand, for example adding new applications to the list. Rarst did all of the coding and stuff and we (that's Samer of Freewaregenius and me) did help shape the functionality and such.

It is a service to our readers that get the benefit of being informed when a good software has been updated with the option to read up on it at one of our sites. It's currently not clear where we go from here. Possibilities are to include more blogs and an archive among other possibilities. What we need right now is user input. If you got anything to add let us know. Good things, bad things, we like to listen :) And if you have any questions let us know as well.

thanks again for the opportunity Mouser and everyone at Donation Coder :P

Miles yes I used it. I really believed that the double-click was responsible for opening that folder. It did take awfully long and I might have clicked elsewhere in the meantime ;) Funny.

That's interesting Mouser. You can optimize your code by using a wildcard :)

« on: March 10, 2009, 04:14 AM »
It's run by Daniel, one of the authors at Ghacks. We are also running a cooperation at the moment, a web development blog called Worth a visit if you are into php, html and web dev ;)

You react pretty quick to requests, very nice ;) Think my post got you some attention from big sites like Lifehacker, congrats ;)

I'm still getting an error when uploading the created file to http://www.validome....rg/rss-atom/validate telling me

Syntax error within XML declaration (<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"? version="2.0" version="2.0">).
Check the XML declaration (z.B. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>) on the basis of the W3C specification

I'm using the example.bat file and upload it directly.
