um you leave a note in the guestbook.
I was just going to say this...ninite.com makes it easy to reinstall all the tools I use at work and at home. All the essential freebes on the net are there..for the most part.
I couldn't enter text into anything that appeared to be a text box.
sorry about that. Fixed it by changing hosts. New web address is: www.awesomesaucesoftware.webs.com.
Auslogics' free Benchmark software
No love for my suggestions?
Networkdls' DiskMark is a small utility that allows you to benchmark your disks and hard drives performance.
Plus a lot of free stuff
Stardock Fences, desktop organizing program. Basically lots of desktops on your desktop
Magic Disc In my opinion one of the best disc emulators out there.
Autohotkey is awesome, i have my numpad configured as an app launcher. It totally awes people to press buttons and launch programs. I have FF, chrome, steam, notepa++, trilliam, RDC, picasa, ccleaner on /auto, only on numpads.
I reccomend also hamachi for remote control. So easy to use. Is like being at home network. I usually organize my files from work. Mostly porn video names and tags lmao
And i only use gizmo drive for creating and mounting isos
Lightscreen is a lightweight screenshot capture tool i love.
Took it down and remade it. The site is now known as http://epictech.freeforums.org
For media codecs and players, you should add K-Lite. It comes in a X64 version and 32bit. For 64 bit systems, you install the 64 client, then the 32 bit version you choose. Also includes latest Media player calssic.
(Updated much more frequently than cccp)
It also has more filter conflicts than the CCCP. K-Lite is crap. If you want to use something other than CCCP, use Shark's Codec Packs. http://shark007.net/
And for codec packs, unless it adds a new feature, or fixes a bug, updates are unnecessary. Frequent updates are not a pro or a con.
I did have an issue with K Lite codec pack causing mp4s to not run in WMP.
I uninstalled K Lite and reinstalled it.
Fiexed the issue.
I have not had issues with this codec pack since.
Try using a lot of avisynth scripts with it.
I've run klite for years, and never had an issue. I just watch movies and whatever with it.
Fixed. Seriously, Shark's is a hell of a lot better.
A very good codec pack for windows vista/2008/7 20 megs in size
Free, AIO benchmark (cpu (integer and float), drives, ram, internet, gpu)
K lite is horrible.
Sharks pack works better, but i've still had issues - you often have to do manual tweaking to get things working right.
CCCP is the easier codec pack, and i never have issues with it - shit, its installer is what i use to FIX codec problems on machines.
First page has been updated.
Cant say i read the whole thread, sorry if these have been suggested.
Mediaplayer - Songbird. http://getsongbird.com/
Songbird can play a large variety of formats. Ithas all kinds of plugins. One for example looks at your artists and will tell you if concerts are in the area. If you do want to try this program, install the EQ presets plugin after. My music was flat sounding untill i installed that. It was my replacement for iTunes once I started getting flac music.
Converter: Mediacoder http://www.mediacoderhq.com/
I do find this hard to use if I dont use a wizard or one of the UI apps for converting stuff. But its support for formats is wide and far.
Open source editor for plain text
