Thanks for sharing, this seems very useful for many.

When only there were an app like this which could work with password accounts, even letting user to choose the boot account. For instance, I'm quite often using another account when logging in first time in the morning, than what I used when I hibernated the rig night before (I have my reasons...).

Nitro Reader is still in beta beta, so install it if you are okay with using beta softwares. Though I am sure you'll agree it'll make a good (/better) alternative for Adobe Reader which won't let you edit your docs much.

handy.
Note: I own Nitro PDF Pro, this version lets you edit, combine, scan etc. PDFs. While the software is good, the editing is very poor, it does not follow NORMAL windows cut and paste or double click rules, it uses a completely different way of doing things and has a huge learning curve. I don’t like it at all and there are lots of complaints on line. The ribbon (like Office) is also setup to do things their way and makes it very hard to do things. You have to learn that the function is not there or buried so deep it is impossible to find. Just my 2 cents not the best software if you want to just start using it right away there is a lot of re-learning.

It's nice to have something that puts in the lines you need for .avs scripts(AviSynth) but once I know what the "must have" lines are, I'm finding it simpler to do things "by hand." xvid_encraw.exe is extremely simple to use for one pass xvid encode. You just need to feed it an .avs file, then mux the audio in later. I'm doing one right now. Source is a 1080P .mkv file over 20 GB. The .avi when done will be about 5 GB and look pretty good. Since there's no subtitles the video part of the conversion is only 2 lines of AviSynth script:

DirectShowSource("movie.mkv",audio=false)
ConvertToFV12()

That's it. Feed that file into xvid_encraw and set bitrate params.
Plus there's less to go wrong since the whole job isn't thrown away if you get an error. Of course if you are doing batches of videos that's a different matter.

edit: one place to get xvid_encraw.exe is with AvsP program. That comes with Simple AVI Creator or you can download AvsP separately. Nice editor for doing AviSynth scripts esp. if you are like me and just learn what you need to get it done.. not an expert.

edit2: I'm running the job on my Vista64 quad core now. I don't have a custom build just off the shelf system. Output to 6400 kbit .avi is good because it uses about 70% of my cores processing capacity. If I try to squeeze the output too small it pegs them at 100% and I have to listen to those cheesy stock fans spinning at high rpms for hours!! This way they just surge up here and there. Not so much noise.
