I can not find any downloadlinks to KingSoft office 2007 anymore. Is the free distribution over now?

Which free burning software can you recommend?

You probably want DVDShrink (actually, I think they're both written by the same guy).
DVDShrink is software to backup DVD discs. You can use this software in conjunction with DVD burning software of your choice, to make a backup copy of any DVD video disc.

DVDShrink will also burn your backup DVD, if you have installed the latest version of Nero. You can also download a demo version of Nero here. If you already possess alternative burning software and prefer to stick with it, then you can still use DVD Shrink. The output from DVDShrink can be saved as files on your hard drive, which you can then burn with software of your choice.

DVDShrink is free software. You should never pay for DVDShrink.

Another alternative may be Handbrake:
HandBrake is an open-source, GPL-licensed, multiplatform, multithreaded DVD to MPEG-4 converter, available for MacOS X, Linux and Windows.

Supported sources:
  • Any DVD-like source: VIDEO_TS folder, DVD image or real DVD (encrypted or unencrypted, but protection methods other than CSS are not supported and must be handled externally with third-party software), and some .VOB and .TS files
  • PAL or NTSC
  • AC-3, DTS, LPCM or MPEG audio tracks
  • File format: MP4, MKV, AVI or OGM
  • Video: MPEG-4 or H.264 (1 or 2 passes or constant quantizer/rate encoding)
  • Audio: AAC, MP3, Vorbis or AC-3 pass-through (supports encoding of several audio tracks)

Misc features:
  • Chapter selection
  • Basic subtitle support (burned into the picture)
  • Integrated bitrate calculator
  • Picture deinterlacing, cropping and scaling
  • Grayscale encoding

You may also need DVD43:
DVD43 is a free DVD decrypter that runs in the background and decrypts DVDs on the fly. This website gives you some basic information, like what it does, how to use it, and where to download it.  If your copy program needs a decrypter, you can use DVD43. It's free, so you won't need to waste money on a decrypter.  This website does not host the DVD43 setup file and is not affiliated with the authors of DVD43, but it does provide safe links to the program.

WHAT DOES IT DO?: DVD43 will decrypt (unlock) a movie DVD so that your copy program can read it. If the DVD structure is non standard, your copy program needs to take care of that.  I have included a list of programs (at the bottom of this page) which work well with DVD43 in order of their capability (based on my testing).

COMPATIBILITY:  DVD43 is compatible with Microsoft Windows Vista (32), Windows XP, and Windows 2000. 

handbrake is exactly what i am looking for
thanks :Thmbsup:

thanks for the hint.
I will try it out. Are there also some freeware alternatives?


is there a good alternative to Nero Recode?
I like the straight forward design of Recode. I already tried Gordian Knot, but this tool sometimes crash on my PC.
Therefore I am looking for an alternative.

Any proposals?

nice one thanks  :Thmbsup:

nly difference I see is less drive chatter.

which is a big plus  :Thmbsup:

I have 2GB Ram and Windows XP. I have now disable the Swap File. It seems so that the PC runs a little bit smoother. ;)

Does it make sense to disable the windows swap file?
Will I get a speed improvement with this?

but in this case I have to order an additional software package for fullfilling this function

i mean somethin like this

KingSoft Office looks good. Nearly a 100% Office 2003 clone  :-*

What I miss is a powerful formula editor for writing exam works

Hi all,
I love the Coding Snacks system here.
But I'm not sure if I can post Firefox Addon ideas there? It seems to be mostly for small OS utilities scripted in AutoHotkey.
Is there a forum I should be checking out for Firefox Addons?
There is no apparent way to submit ideas at

A visual indicator for browser tabs (and taskbar buttons), whenever there is audio being played.

Don't you hate it when you have many browser tabs (and browser windows) open, and there is suddenly some music being played from one of those webpages... And there is no easy way to find the offending page.

you could try your request here

thanks for this useful guide !!  :Thmbsup:

Does't work on my system, Firefox crash each time I want to start it  :(

Is VirtualBox better than VirtualPC 2007?

Screenshot Captor / keep menu description shorter
« on: April 26, 2008, 04:10 PM »

you should try to keep the menu description of SC shorter by leaving away some recurrent words


Capture -> Grab entire workspace
                Grab screen ...

Options -> Objects -> Saving Files in Objects
Save as Tiff..
Save as Original Formar

Options Hotkey
Capture screen....

This would make SC more readable..  :Thmbsup:
