ImDisk Virtual Disk Driver

It can create virtual hard disk, floppy or CD/DVD drives using image files or system memory.

64 bit drivers are now digitally signed with a certificate trusted by Microsoft.
This means that ImDisk now works Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7 even without running it testsigning mode.

RemoteDesktopManager

I can't live without this app for work. It is free (though also has a $20 "enterprise" version).

Launches pretty much any type of connection, virtual instance, URL, or command-line-enabled program with a click or two. Makes life a LOT simpler when you deal with several hundred different servers/connections. Allows for directing the connection to specific displays, or embedding them into tabbed sessions.

Remote Desktop Manager - Home

Seriously, try it. You won't be disappointed.

I just updated to 6.0.437.3 dev. branch. See how it goes.

I'm running 6 extensions. I only have one tab + speed dial open. It's showing 9 running processes. But it's worth it for the speed. I can't stand waiting for FF to load now that I'm used to this. It jumps up off the drive!!

A Windows Explorer substitute?

I just came across a windows explorer type program called "UltraExplorer". I have downloaded version 2.0.3.1. It is from Mustangpeak Software at www.mustangpeak.net. It is referred to as a file management tool. It is free, although they would like donations. Orginally I downloaded it because, while I think Win 7 Pro is more secure and robust, I don't like the Win Explorer that it incorporates. After downloading it, I found that it might be something that will help me to use on my Windows XP Pro and Windows Home system files as it can be loaded on these systems as well. I have not had enough time to really play with it, however, and it has a lot of bells and whistles. If anyone is using it and has any comments please let me know. Thanks

Yeh, me too. I've been running the dev.branch for a while now.
It seems to get better almost daily, amazing.

SrtFix

This program I wrote is only to fix oddball .srt subtitle files where the milliseconds in the time lines are set off by periods('.') instead of commas(',')

See this link for more info:

SrtFix 1.0 - DonationCoder.com

It's free for you to use at your own risk.
You can download from my page:

Faves Downloads

Note that since the filename is passed in on the command line, if you have trouble with unicode characters and the command prompt, you may want to temporarily rename the subtitle file. See the included Readme.txt.

Wouldn't it be nice to have the same iTunes library, with the same tracks, on all your PCs? MediaRover is a completely free solution and it works well.

Before you can get going with MediaRover, though, you need to set up file sharing. Start it on, say, your Public folder or a network drive, in Control Panel -> Network and Internet -> Network and Sharing Center. Password protect it if you feel that's necessary. Then, after you run the MediaRover wizard (and register for a free account; you'll want to do this as it's what allows you to share files between computers), it'll ask you for your Storage Server info. If you've set up a shared folder somewhere, click Locate Servers and it'll find the address of your network automatically. Then click Locate Shares, and it'll find all the folders you've set up sharing on for you to choose from. Put in the same password you just set up, then it's as simple as starting a sync.

Initially, this sync copies all of your music files to the storage server. You have the option of also copying specific playlists, or all of them. (MediaRover sees only static playlists, not Smart or Genius playlists.) Then, these files on the storage server can be synced to any other PC.
