QuickMonth Calendar - hover over the system tray to see it

Posted by ClifNotes, Apr 2008, permalink Desktop Tools

 

Have you ever wanted to view more than just the current date quickly? I usually double click the date in the system tray to see the calendar that Windows uses to set the date and time. I always worry I'll accidentally set the date or time wrong when I'm doing that.

 

The QuickMonth Calendar allows you to quickly view a calendar. As soon as you hover your mouse cursor over the date in the system tray, it will pop up a nice little calendar for you.

 

I have a special place in my heart for small, stand-alone programs that do only simple and useful jobs. The QuickMonth Calendar definitely qualifies for this category because it's only about 200kb and it is very simple to use.

 

To install it, you can download a zipped copy of this program, then unpack it wherever you want it to reside. Place a shortcut to it in the Windows Startup folder if you'd like it to run every time Windows starts up. It won't place any entries in the Windows registry and you don't have to worry about uninstalling it if you don't like it. You only have to delete the program folder to make it go bye-bye.

 

Quote from the website

Here are a few of QuickMonth Calendar's features:

• To quickly jump to today's date, right-click on the calendar or left-click the bottom of the calendar where it says "Today."

• Use the buttons at the top of the calendar to change the month. You can also left-click on the name of the month to see a popup menu of all the months (see example 1).

• Left-click on the year to quickly change the year (see example 2).

• The calendar automatically detects the location of your Windows taskbar, so if you move the taskbar to the top, left, or right side of the screen, the calendar will still display next to your system tray clock (you may have to restart Windows once for the change to take effect).

• The look of the calendar changes according to what your system colors are (as determined by your current Windows theme or visual style).

CloneSpy - duplicate file finder and cleaner

Posted by ClifNotes, Apr 2008, permalink File Management

 

Tony at Top Freeware emailed me with some tips on new stuff. I asked him what was new on his site and he replied with this item ...

 

DESCRIPTION:

 

Clonespy helps you free up hard drive space by detecting and removing duplicate files. Duplicate files have exactly the same contents regardless of their name, date, time and location. Also, it is able to find files that are not exactly identical, but have the same file name. Perhaps you have different versions of a file and you want to find all of them and remove the older versions. CloneSpy can also find zero length files. These are files that have no content. A fast and efficient program that is powerful and popular.

http://www.clonespy.com/?Download

 

It's also portable :)

Win 98 - XP

 

Kind regards

 

Tony

Free Zune Video Converter - save tons of time uploading to Zune

Posted by ClifNotes, Apr 2008, permalink Video Encoders/Converter

 

Mike C. is a friend of mine at work. He's a huge video junkie and he often has to upload new movies to his Zune player. The biggest problem with that is time. He says that the Zune will accept uploads from his PC in various file formats, but it seems to take forever while it does it's own conversion to it's own special format.

 

Mike ran into this utility and he now converts the files before he uploads them. It saves him tons of time and he wanted me to share this with all the other Zune-a-maniacs out there. (Are there any?)

 

Be sure to comment below if you have any tips on using a Zune.

 

Quote from the website

Free Zune Video Converter is an absolutely free application which converts the most popular video files (AVI, MPEG, MP4, FLV, MOV and other) to Microsoft Zune compatible video format (WMV, MP4). You can also extract audio tracks from video files to MP3, WMA and M4A (AAC) format. The application allows you to convert full movie or selected range only. You can limit output file size and set many parameters used by encoder.

Quote from the website

Does this sound familiar? You urgently need to write down something important - a telephone number or details of an important meeting - so you use whatever you can lay your hands on: a piece of paper, a scrap of newspaper or the first computer text file you come across.

 

The important note is recorded, and the issue seems to have been resolved. But just when you thought it was OK, you discover the note is needed again only to find that it is buried somewhere under a pile of similar scraps, while the temporary text file has been moved to trash or lost somewhere on the network disk of an unknown server.

 

To help prevent this situation, we have launched Day Planners/Note Managers: Exstora Pro and Exstora, designed to assist you in note taking and organizing your information.

Windows Live Contact Importer - upload contacts to Hotmail

Posted by ClifNotes, Apr 2008, permalink Email Tools

 

I've had a Hotmail account from nearly it's beginning when Microsoft hadn't aquired it yet. Since that time, I've had the account lapse several times from not using it often enough. That's no problem since they always let me renew the account using the same address.

 

Recently, I had let it lapse again and I wanted to update the contacts so that they agreed with my Windows Address Book. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to use a free download they provide, called Windows Live Contact Importer. It'll let you update Hotmail with your Outlook or Outlook Express address books.

 

Whomever wrote the tool, had the right idea. Make it small and keep it simple. It's less than 300kb and there's no installation required. Just double click it and the wizard leads you through a few easy steps.

 

On another note, Hotmail had updated it's interface last year so that they more or less matched what Yahoo and Gmail were offering. I was not impressed. I use the Classic or older interface now.

 

If you use Hotmail, let us know what you think about it in the comments below.

 

Quote from the website

Move contacts from Microsoft® Office Outlook® or Outlook Express to get started sending e-mail to the people you care about most. Simply go to the Contacts page of Windows Live Hotmail, click Options, and then select Import Contacts. Just like that, all your contacts are at your fingertips.

Screen Capture Shootout for Windows

Posted by ClifNotes, Apr 2008, permalink Windows Tips

 

Max at the Freeware Junkie blog has written up his results of a shootout among the top free screen capture tools. Naturally, I have my own preferences, but I have to agree with Max's analysis of the six he's tried out. I've only tried about 4 of the 6 he talks about.

 

I typically use the last freeware version of FastStoneCapture.

 

Quote from the website

The great free screen capture shootout for Windows!

 

Finding a decent screen capture utility is one of the holy grails of freeware junkies, and there are quite a few available - - but, many have their limitations, whether it be a lack of functionality, licensing, or just shoddy programming.

 

Here, I've taken a few of the top-rated freeware (in some form or another) screen capture programs and pitted them against each other for a shootout!

 

The contenders:

• Donation Coder ScreenShot Captor

• EasyCapture

• FastStone Capture

• Gadwin PrintScreen

• GreenShot

• MWSnap

Ramps Flash Game - so simple and so fun

Posted by ClifNotes, Apr 2008, permalink Games

 

This game is simple. You have to arrange 1 to 3 ramps so that the ball bounces into it's home base. I didn't think I'd stick around to finish this game. Once you've started, it's very hard to stop.

My first score was 97040. That's pretty lame ... can you beat it?

 

Wait till you see the sharks and robot hands before you decide it's too easy.

 

Be sure to visit the website to see more games there.

Quote from the website

The project was a “Featured Game” on the homepage of Newgrounds (the top Flash gaming and animation site on the web) during the week of August 20, 2007 , where it received over 25,000 plays in three days. It was also played 7,500 times on deviantART by August 22. It was also the “Game of the Week” on the popular gaming site GameGarage for the week of August 27.

 

The game includes 33 different levels with five different unlockable cheat codes based on your score. There are four unique types of obstacles (aside from the lava) and ten types of dynamic in-game elements.

Top 50 Open Source Alternatives

Posted by ClifNotes, Apr 2008, permalink Cool Website

 

I saw this page linked in a couple of news sources. I didn't think I'd be impressed until I actually visited the page. They've provided information on some Open Source programs I've never heard of that sound just super.

 

Quote from the website

The Top 50 Proprietary Programs that Drive You Crazy — and Their Open Source Alternatives

The following fifty proprietary programs are listed in no particular order within broad categories along with their open source alternatives. In some cases you could probably write your own book on frustrations with the proprietary programs shown here. In other cases, you’ll discover that the open source alternative isn’t quite up to snuff yet. And, in other cases still, you’ll learn that some proprietary programs are real gems, but that the open source advocate can replace those gems with equally shiny objects from the open source repertoire.

I saw a link to this site along with some example images. I simply can't read Japanese, but that's okay. You don't have to read a word to see the results. Do you have any personal photos that you'd like to artificially age a little?

 

Just upload your pics and click the button underneath. Soon you'll see you photo but it'll look like you took it in the early 1900's.

Get Gmail! and Get Firefox!

 

You need a free 6 GB Gmail account to access many of the cool features at Google. After more than two years in beta testing Gmail is open to the public. Just go to http://gmail.com and sign up for an account.

 

 

I think Gmail works best in the awesome Firefox browser. It's free, easy to use, and it's way more secure than Internet Explorer. My favorite thing to do is to customize Firefox so that it does much more than IE ever could. You can select new button controls for your toolbars, install extensions to add new features, or change the look of your browser with themes - the way Firefox looks and works is under your control.
