Auto Ftp v2 can perform multiple ftp sessions simultaneously (fully multi-threaded). You can choose between straight file copy or synchronisation in either direction (local to remote or remote to local). Sessions can be started manually, timed, change triggered or daisy chained. Multiple sessions can be started from the command line making it a great batch file tool. Now you can have as many upload or download ftp sessions as you like configured and ready to go with one click.
A small calendar and event reminder that unobtrusively sits on your desktop
and is ready to use any time. No taskbar button or system tray icon. The
calendar is transparent so it's not an eyesore and consumes very little
memory. Enter as many daily or regular reminders as you like. Float your mouse
over a day to see all reminders for the day. Shows a short list of upcoming
reminders below the calendar. Fonts, colours and tooltips are customisable so
it blends in with your desktop colour and font schemes.
This little application displays system information on your desktop in a similar way to some other desktop information tools. Unlike others, this application looks like wallpaper but stays resident in memory and continues to update the display in real time. Uses very little memory and nearly zero cpu. Perfect for quick identification and walk-by monitoring of production or test server farms. Everything is customisable including language.
Regard this as a beta release. This means that it's incomplete and buggy, although it's already much more functional than version 1. Most of the functionality from the original is available plus a whole lot more. If you choose to test this, please report back with your experiences, comments, suggestions. As an experiment, there's also a u3p file for thumb drives. It's taken quite a bit of work to achieve something like 80% Explorer functionality and will probably take just as long to get another 15%. Maybe I should go the route of a shell extension instead of trying to reinvent Windows Explorer? What do you think?
SE stands for Shell Extension. The extension adds six columns to the Details view of Windows Explorer: Total Size, Size on Disk, Slack Space, Files, Folders and Extension. Using these columns you can chase down your disk usage patterns. Because it all happens inside Windows Explorer, you're in a familiar environment with tools that function the way you expect. Additional tools include html/csv/text/xml reports, copy path to clipboard, command prompt at selected folder, wild card select objects.
This is my first C#/.NET application, wahoo! Disk Usage Analyser is a Windows Explorer clone but with tools to help you
track down disk usage. It scans the selected disk to generate statistics on
size, files and folders. A configurable list of preset filters can be used to
show only files of specific types. Reports can be generated in text, csv, xml
and html format. An optional disk monitor will update the display in real time
when changes are made to the folders on display. Disk Usage Analyser is written
for .Net v3.5. Works for 32 bit and 64 bit Windows.
Inbox is the middle man, the central scrutinizer for your email; fetching, collating and filtering your mail before you download it to your mail client. You can aggressively deal with unwanted mail saving you time and bandwidth. Mail can be download or left on the server. It's also a powerful tool for manipulating email in various ways: redirect, simple mailing lists, mailbots, away message, reject message, global and account level filtering.
A small and simple mail server for Windows. Handles all incoming and outgoing mail for your local network as well as fetching mail from external accounts. Includes a small web server which can be used to provide your company web page or intranet.
Adds ftp functionality to your "Send To" folder. Create ftp configurations for parent folders and all sub-folders and files are mapped accordingly. Provides for multiple ftp targets for a single source, file rename during transfer etc.
How many sleeps 'til the big day? One day recently my four year daughter asked me how many sleeps until Santa comes. It took me a while to figure it out but I finally came up with an answer. A few minutes later she came back and asked me if I could write something to put on her computer that would tell her every day how many sleeps until Santa comes. Well, I delivered on time and on budget and, like most of my customers, she wanted changes, enhancements etc. So in addition to the little program that shows a cute little countdown on the desktop, there's also a colourful and easy to use setup program to change the big day, message text, fonts and colours and desktop position. It was written with Santa in mind but you can use it to countdown to any big day. NOTE: Works on Windows 2000/XP only.
Simple file splitter and joiner to help you move those huge files across disks, around the network or burn to disk. You control the split size according to your requirements. The results are checksummed to ensure a successful split and rejoin. Handles huge file sizes and can create splits up to 2GB in size.
