'Date Reminder' freeware update -
And also 'Date Reminder' freeware, our little utility to never allow you to forget a date again, has been updated to version, after a whole lot of updates that were not shown here, on the blog - sorry.. wassat

You can now create as many 'categories' as you want to better sort all dates : names, 'On Top' option works correctly now, program 'shortcut' keys were added to the menus to improve user usability, and software is now compatible with latest windows.controls v.3. A lot of minor changes to the code and also a few cosmetic changes.

This new version can be downloaded from the freeware page, were you will also find lots of other useful utilities.

'ToDo Reminder' freeware update -
'ToDo Reminder' freeware has had a few more updates being up to version

When 'Window On Top' was set, all dialogs would 'hide' behind the main window - oddly, as it used to work previously.. Also, all mentions of the old (original) name have been changed to 'ToDo Reminder', as it should have been a long time ago. And a few minor changes to improve the code were done too.

You can get it now from the Freeware page, as always.

'Wv player' free multimedia player update -
Freeware multimedia player, 'Wav player', has been updated up to version

WV player can now create multiple play lists, according to user's wish and preferences, allowing you to have a play list for each type of music, singer, style,... just to give a few examples!

MP3 tag editor is also improved, with better edition of ID3 TAGS, and addition of 45 new genre tags to ID3 genre, among other things.

Video playing window allows for proper resizing and saving of individual frames to disk at will. And a few more minor improvements and cosmetic changes.

The help file has been updated too and now allows for 'context help', showing the correct help page related to the window/dialog open at each moment.

This MM player is another of my freeware that I use - and love - every day. It has all the options and features I need, and then some! Plays any type of sound and video file available to Windows™ operating system. smile

As always, all new versions of this and every other freeware can be freely downloaded from the freeware webpage, where all my freeware is located.

'ToDo Reminder' freeware update -
'ToDo Reminder' freeware has had a few more updates and is now at version

This one already had a lot of changes and improvements done to it previously, turning it into a *real* full options software, but was never released for public use as version unfortunately. Now I made a few more cosmetic touches, updated it to v3 of 'controls' and.. that's about it. smile

I use this software every single day myself, as it really is unobtrusive, being small and quite fast, and does reminds me of everything I have to do in an easy and simple way!

In case someone is worried, it also has been tested for virus by using five different antivirus and the Antivirus Report can be found here: ToDo Reminder antivirus report

As always, all freeware can be downloaded from here. Keep sending your suggestions, ideas and... *knocks on wood* bugs! wink

Re-starting Development!
On the last couple months I've been receiving some emails from long, long time users of some of my little freeware utilities...

That alone makes me feel good, knowing there are people out there that still use and enjoy those 'old' programs, and this makes me want to continue to improve them, on behalf of all of you! So.. I guess "I'm BACK.."

I'm going through all my freeware at the moment, slowly at first, and changing a few things that I had already the idea to do quite a long time ago. Thank you all for leting me know those little freeware utilities are still.. well.. useful even after all those years. smile

I'll be posting all main updates on this blog and, as always, you can download all new versions of my freeware(s) from the freeware webpage.

Priority will be given to the software I use myself all the time, like:
  • File Renamer - file renaming util
  • ToDo Reminder - with alarms
  • WV Player - with play lists
  • Web Downloader - bulk file downloader
  • Image Downloader - search & download
  • ...

'File Renamer' freeware update -
It has been a while since dedicating myself to my dear freeware utilities but, like Terminator movie, I know.. "I'll be baaack" wink Well, I've been receiving some emails from long time - read 12+ year users, and that alone was so heart warming that I had to try to program again, in spite of all the difficulties..

So 'File renamer' freeware has been updated to version now.

First it has been brought up to date to Windows.Common-Controls v3 newer versions, meaning it'll work better with newer Windows version 'Open' file dialogs - hopefuly..

There was a long time bug that got solved at last: whenever drag'n'drop was being used to drag a folder's name to Renamer, that "All Files" button should load *all* files inside that folder, recursively, folder after sub-folder.. It didn't, now it does!

It has also received some interface touches and improvements - some less visible than others, and a few more less important things..

Slowly it'll get better for all of us and, hey!, thank you so much to all the long time users, because that's what makes it so worth while keeping improving this! And I really mean it, truly, from my heart!

And, as always, this and all other freeware downloads are - and will always be - available from the freeware page.

Development stopped for a while....
Sad news but, and altho there have been no post here for a while, all my lil' freeware has been in constant development all the time, responding to folk's requests, ideas and all. Not anymore...

Due to a personal situation, development will be halted for a while, don't really know how long, as I'm really unable to program now. I mean, I've always loved creating all those freeware and improving it troughout the years with YOUR help and interest. Everything has always been free and will always be, as a way to give something back to the Internet. But you all know that..

Maybe when I feel better I'll come back, who knows? In the meanwhile, feel free to download everything you want, ok? "See" you all in a while, hopefully. All the best to you all and, again, thanks for your interest all those years. sad

Free software - what it is (and isn't)
Free software means no cost software, free using by everyone, like in 'free speech', correct? Ok, that is correct, but it doesn't necessarily mean free as in 'free beer'... Confused? You don't need to, as all this - and a little more - is quite well explained in the documents you can find bellow:

Here you have a very nice article explaining on how to 'pay' for free software and describing well what most people think - mistakenly - FREE software does mean...

And of course, there is the official Free Software Definition , from the The Free Software Foundation, that you could find interesting reading.
