NANY 2020: ENTER NOW!
The NANY 2020 event is now closed.
If you are a coder, any new program (or addon) that you have released in the previous year, which is freeware/donationware for home users is eligible.
And if you are not a coder, you can still participate by helping coders with ideas and testing.
To join in the adventure, visit: The NANY 2020 forum section.
But Not Everyone AgreesAs for the donation part: Someone is more likely to get LESS donations by nagging people to do so. I wouldn't have donated to the author of Irfanview if he had the same policy as the people from FindRun Robot. You want cash ? Go payware. You want donations ? Make yourself appreciated.
A new FARR plugin. It query's Google just like the Google Toolbar and returns suggestions and checks your spelling live.
Type gs and your query.

In addition, I made a Del.icio.usplugin for demonstration that let's you search your Del.icio.us posts.
Here is my N.A.N.Y. 08 submission, a large combination of many programs made by myself in order to simplify many daily tasks.
SnapSuite is a fully featured program with manu unique features.
It has a program launcher recognizing many popular programs like Opera and Thunderbird (known as AppLaunch)
It has a semi-automatic typing tool to automate long words and phrases (AutoType)
It has an Instant Message/Chat Room cleaner for times when the boss/the parents come in and the content on the window is not..."suitable" (AutoType)
It has a media control "center" that lets you control playback and volume levels (MediaControl)
It has a full callendar, notepad (known as "MultiNote") and file downloader (MultiBar)
It has a basic web browser based on the Internet Explorer engine (SmartBrowse)
SnapSuite's main feature, however, is none of these. It has a complete, automatic, and extremely simple to use computer maintenance solution. This part of the program, known as SystemCare, allows you to do 4 stages of file system cleaning, registry cleaning, system optimization, file system defragmentation, registry defragmentation, malware scans, Windows/Office updates, Apple Software updates, and updates to other programs (most of this is powered by 3rd party, freeware programs - these are tested extensively and used on all computers in my home for maximum peace-of-mind and usability). If you don't have something that SystemCare needs to help you keep your system in tip-top shape, it will automatically download AND install it for you! SystemCare also includes 2 schedulable programs for quick, automatic system maintenance while you are sleeping or otherwise away from the computer.
The program converts an image (jpg or bmp) to a text, which looks like the image in grayscale. You can choose any monospaced font and any font size you want to format the text with, and also any set of allowed characters. The result can be saved as text and then you can format it correctly in a text editor, or you can save the image of the text already correctly formatted.
