    After a long search for suitable podcast manager I finally decided to stick with gPodder. It provides audio and video podcast download from RSS feeds, YouTube films download, mobile device (e.g. iPod) sync, podcast directory. Actively in development so you might encounter some bugs or broken features; however runs flawlessly on my Win7 installation (x86). Simple, without playback features (I've got other stuff to take care of this anyway).

    Seems to me it has two slight drawbacks. Firstly, its UI might feel uncomfortable or odd to regular Win users as it's build with GTK. Secondly, Win binaries are updated with considerable delay; however, you can download the source and compile it yourself then.

    Oh, and it's in several languages. My screens show the Polish translation, so don't freak out
    great find

    WinCDEmu


    I saw a good review of WinCDEmu on PC World by chance. I gave it a try. I like it. Nice and simple. Double click a supported image file to mount, select Eject from the drive letter context menu in Explorer to unmount.

    Another thing I like is pressing the Open Button with the drive letter selected in my Tray app unmounts the image. Can't get much more convenient.

    I was using the free version of MagicISO without any problems. But I saw that WinCDEmu not only does not use a drive letter until you mount an image, but it also supports mounting more than one image.

    WinCDEmu - A free CD/DVD emulator for Win32 and Win64

    I installed on both Vista64 and Windows Seven 32 bit without having to reboot.
    Nice. :)

    Sounds similar to the free Virtual Clone Drive from Slysoft.com.

    Hello everybody...On my trips around the net I came across something that should intrigue you. So if your into open source projects or this seems like something you have been looking for or needed grab it and give it a try.
    tortoisesvn.tigris.org

    Here's a little item we all need sooner or later, and it's available for 32 and 64bit, it's an open source file and archive manager.
    http://peazip.sourceforge.net/index.html

    Don't know if this is listed anywhere either...watch and download HD videos , pod cast , it downloads video so you can watch your videos anywhere.

    your going to need this little helper as well for your new videos you grabbed with Miro...

    Now I can finally get rid of WinRAR X)

    Open source is always my preference whenever I can find it.

    ErrMsg 1.2


    I made a small utility for my own use as a programmer, to display Windows system error messages from the code number. I called it ErrMsg. I enhanced it in v. 1.2 to use an EditBox so that the error text may be copied and pasted using the clipboard.

    Note that it has only been tested on English versions of Windows Vista and W7. It should work on anything XP or later. It has also been recompiled to remove the msvcr100.dll dependency. Note that it only returns Windows system error messages. Be sure to prefix HRESULT error codes with 0x (those ones with 8 digits like 80070005.)

    You may download from my page here:

    Faves Downloads

    Search on "Windows Error Code Lookup Tool"
    to find the download link.



    It is free for you to use at your own risk. Donations gratefully accepted via About Box. :)

    Dual Display Mouse Manager, DDMM


    When I switched to a dual monitor display I got irritated by the way my mouse pointer sometimes unintentionally slid over to my second monitor. With this program you can make the pointer stick to the side of the screen for a configurable amount of time before it goes to the secondary screen. Very nice and handy.
