UrlSnooper / Re: Does the software contain virus PECompact?
« on: March 16, 2007, 08:55 PM »

A current solution for you would be to update Kaspersky virus definition to it latest, or use Kaspersky 6.0 + latest definition.

When I tried Kaspersky 6.0 a few weeks ago, all of my installed DC programs got deleted initially because of this 'PECompact' false positive. After updating the virus definition, Kaspersky allowed these apps to run happily ever after. ;D

Right-click,- sort by name ?

Thx for this tip Gothi[c]. :mrgreen:

O'Kay; you're not affiliated with WordWeb, but to my understanding you are very much affiliated with Mobysaurus Thesaurus - which supports / integrates into WordWeb. In my Babylon I have Moby Thesaurus. Is this your doing as well? If not, as I expect: May the bigger Mobysaurus Thesaurus at some time offer support for Babylon?

Good idea. I'm not sure Babylon allows integration with 3rd-party programs since I'm not able to find relevant info regarding this support.

A must have for word lovers. I have it installed on all my computers and it's really a great reference that comes in handy whenever I look up words. Good to know that the author, Antony Lewis, is still actively developing it, expanding the database and adding more features. :up:

Get the freeware version here:

There's also an enhanced commercial version which sells for $29 but comes with some advanced features.

WordWeb is a free English thesaurus and dictionary for Windows, and can be used to look up words from within almost any program in just one click. It works off-line, but can also look up words in web references such as the Wikipedia encyclopedia. Features of the free version include:
Definitions and synonyms
Proper nouns
Related words

150 000 root words
120 000 synonym sets
Look up words in almost any program

Millions of people from all over the world use this top-rated software.

Interestingly, the licensing terms for the free version of the program indicates that it's actually Greenwarew rather than pure freeware:

You may use the program free of charge indefinitely only if

    * You take at most 4 flights (2 return flights) in any 12 month period
    * AND you do not own or regularly drive an SUV (sports utility vehicle).

It make me feel good to see software authors spreading awareness about our environmental issues (thou honestly I suspect most users just don't read/ignore the license).

Launch TheBat! after the installation and you will be prompted to configure the plugin. Later you can config the search plugin by going to 'Options -> Preferences -> Plugins'. See a demo below:

Read our official review on TheBat! the email client.

I know a lot of folks here use and love TheBat! like I do. AFAIK it's still one of the clients that lack integration with popular desktop search programs, like Google Desktop Search and MSN Live Search.

Just came across this Google Desktop Search plugin this morning and so far I've been very pleased with it. I have 8 regularly used accounts and 2,300+ email managed by TheBat! atm and it has not been very convenient for me to find needles in this messy haystack with the TheBat! built-in search.

The current release is an Alpha and there may be some glitches and also functions that are not yet implemented, however it does its job well and I recommend this plugin if you use TheBat! and have quite a lot of email to handle. This tool will turn your hatred for modern email explosion into productivity.

p.s. You need Google Desktop Search and TheBat! email client to use it. The new Google Desktop Search v5 is out, pretty cool, get it here.

can anybody please tell me how can crack the Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo XI. i have downloaded the program trial and i ask u how can i make it full!!!

Hi chris_G20, you can def make it full by visiting the product page of Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo XI and click "Buy Now".  :)

Thanks for the alert, Ken! :Thmbsup:  Remote PHP execution - looks like a very dangerous vulnerability. :mad:

Wow, another must have for web development! Thanks for sharing Softland. :Thmbsup:

p.s. Would you like to make a post (separate topic) about Firebug so we can blog it? I think many ppl here will like it too. :up:

Welcome to the site, Jamie.

Looks very nice and it's freeware too! I'm v interested to see its SMS sending function in action, which should be of use to me.  :Thmbsup:

Just FYI, I got a 404 Not Found error when trying to download the file (I'm a Firefox user, not able to enjoy the IE user only download link)  :)

btw, Sharon, I just did a search and found these interesting posts on the web. The resemblance is uncanny, and ppl say they are spams - do they mean anything to us.. I don't know you tell me??  ;)



Hmm the review site you mentioned looks sham to me (someone must have been paid, hopefully a lot, to come up with such reviews & ratings).

The top-rated Wiz Web Host currently has PageRank of 1 instead of 7 as claimed.

And some of these "reviews" even look like advertisements in disguise.

IMO, most review sites are just paid marketers for hosting providers, in order to get the bigger picture and protect your investment sometimes you have to google (search) negative user reviews on the web, like this one:


which tells the stories of former clients of a "Rated 90 out of 100, PageRank 8, definitely a choice of web hosting" web hosting provider.

Web Developer toolbar for Firefox 1.0 - 2.0.0.* by Chris Pederick

IMO, an absolute must for everybody who's doing web development (and particularly css development). :Thmbsup:

Get it free from:

C:\Documents and Settings\[UserName]\SendTo

Maybe to create a shortcut on your desktop to this directory (hidden by default)?

To add directories to SendTo, just make a shortcut of that directory and move it to SendTo.

Remember you can always post whatever you want in My Personal Area.

Even if you save a post in "My Personal Area", you are the only one who sees it. Do whatever you what, just copy/paste the source code and post to the proper forum section after you are done with the post. Useful for getting your post ready before revealing it to the public. ;)

Maybe "Alt" or "Pause"

You may want to check out Find and Run Robot, which is pretty successful in utilizing Pause the Useless.  ;D

Mobysaurus / Three Search Tabs - What Do They Do?
« on: February 11, 2007, 08:12 PM »
Mobysaurus Thesaurus was mentioned on FreewareGenius on Feb 10 and was given a 5 -star award. I'd really like to thank the founder of the site, Mr. Samer Kurdi, for reviewing this program.  :Thmbsup:

Mobysaurus comes with a competent tabbed interface. There are five main tabs within the main UI: Find Synonyms, Find Synonyms Headwords, Suggest Headwords, Find Online, and History and Favorites. I am somewhat unclear as to whether there are sufficient differences between the three main tabs; these seem to contain pretty much the same info with the middle one (Find Synonymous headwords) the most useful. A single, user configurable tab would have been better. As it is the three tabs seem spammy and redundant.
-[url=] Blog Entry[/url]

I think it's partly my fault for not having given a full explanation of the function/use of the three basic search tabs in the documentation. And perhaps I should clarify some confusions about those search tabs now as it was perplexing even an experienced user like Mr. Kurdi.

The three search tabs serve different needs and their functions do not overlap.

Find Synonyms

Screenshot - 10_02_2007 , 4_44_05 PM.png

Most commonly used, fastest, supports wild cards and it displays similar entries.

Find Synonymous Headwords

Screenshot - 11_02_2007 , 8_37_53 PM.png

"In addition to the powerful search features, the truly unique thing about this tool is how it helps you to explore the relationships between words... Go on a journey through the thesaurus... Delving deeper and deeper into word chains..." - Mouser

Find Synonymous Headwords is a feature not yet seen in other thesaurus tools. Basically this unique function picks out and displays on the side all headwords from all synonyms under an entry. For any headword listed on the right side, you can double-click to see what headwords are synonymous with it, and have all synonyms under the headword shown simultaneously on the left.

No thesaurus is perfect and it's hard to say a user is able to start with the right headword right the first time, every time. When someone looks up a headword (main entry) in a conventional thesaurus (paper or electronic), normally he has no exact idea as to whether he starts with the most suitable headword which contains the synonym that he's looking for - maybe there's a better synonym under another headword that he has not yet looked up? If so, what is that headword? Even with thesaurus programs with cross-referencing, we are still facing a myriad of possibilities and endless mouse clicks. Just imagine how unproductive it is. This unique feature in Mobysaurus is there so the user won't need to try out synonyms one by one to see if they are also headwords and there are better synonyms under these entries - the function saves all these troubles by reducing the work to a simple double click.

The navigation keys include Up, Down, Right, Left, Enter (expand), Backspace (fold). The right-click shortcut menu offers some additional functions:

Screenshot - 12_02_2007 , 11_09_05 AM.png

Suggest Headwords

Screenshot - 10_02_2007 , 5_01_56 PM.png

It is also a feature currently unique to this thesaurus tool.

As said, one does not always know well whether a headword that he has in mind is the fittest out there in his thesaurus. It's often a bit annoying when you start out with some uncommon word (like in this case, "bigwig") and the thesaurus does not take it as headword, then you have to think hard in order to come up with some synonyms of that word as possible headwords to look up again, and maybe repeatedly. The process would often take away a lot of your time and energy.

The Suggest Headwords feature takes any word you have in mind, regardless of it being a headword or not, then fast searches the whole database, and comes up with related headwords in just seconds. All you need is to pick any one or more headwords from the results to look up for synonyms.

Find And Run Robot / Re: Alt+P Always crashes FARR
« on: February 06, 2007, 11:05 AM »
Yep, same here. Not a serious bug thou, and FARR still works after I hit OK.


Perhaps you can try to get your laptop hdd out, connect it to another PC in an usb enclosure and delete/rename:

cthorpe, I tried your code on DC forum pages on I saw smileys, cody coins, avatars and everything flying and whirling all over. Now that was FUN! ;D  :Thmbsup:

I've been silent, but I've been using it!  Two issues, probably not new, but still a problem...
  • It keeps bypassing my proxy - need proxy dialog?
  • Steals focus - yes/no/sometimes... I know this doesn't help much, but this IS what is happening.  Seems like it did not used to so this,but then it started??

I have been holding back from writing because I was waiting for a pattern to emerge.  None has, except now it is to the point where it grabs focus every time.

Any ideas?

Calvin, does the new upload work for you wrt proxy and stealing focus problems?  :)  (here I experienced a lot of the Notifier taking away focus from active app recently)

Update: the problem of grabbing focus is still there, guess I'll have to explore win32 api methods  :(
