Find and Run Robot vs.Desktop Search
Find and Run Robot beats the pants off of other desktop search programs, including MSN, Google, and Yahoo Desktop search. This program is very fast, and has a high degree of customization regarding what files you want to search for and where to search. It does not consume hard disk space by indexing your files like other desktop search programs. Try this program out and you'll agree that it is lightning fast and probably the most useful desktop search program out there (and best of all, it's free). My best regards go out to the developers of this program.
Since 2007 we have held an annual event that we call NANY (New Apps for the New Year), where we ask the coders who hang out on DonationCoder to create some new piece of free software and share it with the world on January 1st of the new year.
NANY is really the funnest thing we do on this site, and it's one of the few times we can all play together. There are no winners or losers, it's simply a celebration of programming and creating new software and sharing it with the world.
Any application/addon that you have released in the previous year, which is freeware/donationware for home users is eligible. You can target any operating system (desktop or mobile) or even make a web-based tool. It can be a game, utility, large application, whatever. DC takes makes no claim on your software, it's just an event to encourage you to share a creation with others.
All participating coders receive a free commemorative coffee mug:
