    TKexe Kalender

    Creating calendars can be fun and personalized versions make a great craft projects and gifts. Give yourself a professional edge with TKexe Kalender.

    TKexe Kalender is a simple program that allows you to create various types of calendars, personalize them and either print or save them. The program's interface is somewhat old-fashioned, but easy to navigate, and a small wizard-like tool automatically pops up to help you along.
    You can modify all aspects of your TKexe Kalender, including the placement of the days and month names, background and appearance, calendar language and public holidays. The templates aren't very inspiring, but you can download more from the website and use images from your own computer - just remember that you add them by dragging, not double clicking.
    TKexe Kalender also has a number of other features that make using it more comfortable. You can assign hotkeys to any of the functions, make use of a preview option and save particularly nice calendars as templates. Unfortunately, the program itself is not very attractive, and the preset templates and images are amateur.

    BitCAD IntelliCAD

    BITC is a powerful CAD environment which allows you to read DWG files and saves you thousands of dollars.

    It comes with all the general tools that you expect from a CAD environment including options to change views, draw geometric shapes plus it has some limited advanced features such as a command line, ADS options to upload and manipulate documents and functions to create and upload macros. Even though this a much cheaper CAD environment than you'd normally pay for such a package, it has a high degree of compatibility with the major programs such as Autocad, AutoLISP, ADS, and DCL routines. However, the big advantage is that it has been specifically designed for use with Windows which means that it integrates much better than most CAD applications. This means it incorporates several unique functions such as the possibility to open multiple drawings at the same time, and of displaying and editing raster images. However, its limited functionality in terms of advanced design options mean that it's probably best used in conjunction with Autocad or another major program.

    Budweiser Lizards Screen Saver

    Just a nice looking screen saver :)

    It features Frank and Louie, two rejected reptilian actors from the Bud TV commercials. The Budweiser Lizards Screen Saver features those two rejected reptilian actors from the Bud TV commercials, Frank and Louie. Set in their swampy home, the lizards bemoan their fate with dialog lifted from the TV spots. There's not much movement besides their mouths -- after all, Frank and Louie are fairly laid back -- but every once and a while, a dragonfly flutters by for the lizards' snack time. In the background, you can see a tavern with a glowing neon Budweiser sign. Options let you toggle the sound on and off, plus send dragonflies into the picture at will. This screen saver is courtesy of Anheuser-Busch.

    Generate documentation from source code

    Doxygen is a documentation system for C++, C, Java, Objective-C, Python, IDL (Corba and Microsoft flavors), Fortran, VHDL, PHP, C#, and to some extent D.
    It can help you in three ways:
    1. It can generate an on-line documentation browser (in HTML) and/or an off-line reference manual from a set of documented source files. There is also support for generating output in RTF (MS-Word), PostScript, hyperlinked PDF, compressed HTML, and Unix man pages. The documentation is extracted directly from the sources, which makes it much easier to keep the documentation consistent with the source code.
    2. You can configure doxygen to extract the code structure from undocumented source files. This is very useful to quickly find your way in large source distributions. You can also visualize the relations between the various elements by means of include dependency graphs, inheritance diagrams, and collaboration diagrams, which are all generated automatically.
    3. You can also use doxygen for creating normal documentation (as I did for this manual).
    Doxygen is developed under Linux and Mac OS X, but is set-up to be highly portable. As a result, it runs on most other Unix flavors as well. Furthermore, executables for Windows are available.

    PHOTOFILTRE - incredibly awesome and easy to use

    PhotoFiltre is a free image editor that makes a great lightweight alternative to Photoshop for users who want something more simple and easy to use.


    PhotoFiltre is a relatively small application and unlike Photoshop, will install and launch very quickly. The interface, loaded with all the features and options, can be confusing at first glance but you'll soon get used to it. The right side is composed of the shape and drawing tools and an optimizable color palette. The top bar has all the essential image editing and modification options. PhotoFiltre sadly doesn't let you customize the interface and choose your favorite tools.


    Among all the image modification tools, of particular usefulness is the quick contrast/hue and saturation buttons because you can check out the effects and immediately and easily correct the image if you're not satisfied with its quality. If you trust PhotoFiltre, you can also let it adjust these parameters automatically.
    Like any self-respecting image editing application, PhotoFiltre includes the mostwidely used filters to transform your image, but if you need to make really significant changes, you'll find yourself limited. Furthermore, unlike Photoshop, PhotoFiltre doesn't include layers, making it more challenging to work on different elements of the image separately.
    Like the excellent free image viewer Irfanview, PhotoFiltre covers the majority of image formats and can batch process and convert images rapidly. PhotoFiltre has five different zoom options yet they seem to be more or less similar. The magnifier is probably less precise than the drop down percentage pane, and the auto zoom adjusts the image’s size according to PhotoFiltre's window size.
    The image explorer is located at the bottom of the screen, and if you set it according to your image file you'll be able to quickly preview all your pictures. However, if you work with multiple image files, it can quickly become confusing, as you’ll have to open up an explorer tree pane every time to look for your pictures.
    PhotoFiltre contains all the essential tools and options to edit and optimize pictures.

    In the distant future, in the darkest reaches of space, the ghosts of the past whisper your name. You are Jim Raynor, a marshal-turned-rebel on a vigilante crusade to bring down the Dominion and its nefarious leader, Arcturus Mengsk. Haunted by betrayal and remorse, some believe you may have given up the fight. But you have promises to keep...and a need for vengeance that's long overdue.

    Though the demo for this WWII first-person shooter offers the same great gameplay as the original Call of Duty, the sequel doesn't contain enough new features to warrant a top rating. Also, the included mission seems too short, considering the large download and lengthy installation.

    From the start, the immersive cinematic presentation that made the original so popular is evident. Your convoy of jeeps rides into El Daba, Egypt, where you must take out four German artillery units, signal the headquarters location to your fleet, grab secret dispatches, and reconnect with your troop at the docks, fighting all the way. The new health system doesn't offer a hard count, but rather limits your short-term damage, much like Halo's shield system. You'll only know you're hurt when your breathing becomes erratic and you start to palpitate. Yikes! Resting in a safe spot will heal your character. The other obvious new feature is the ability to climb over small barriers, but the height and type of material you can vault seem arbitrary.

    The sound and graphics are again excellent. Planes flying overhead will shake the battlefield, and smoke grenades create an awesome fog of war. Our favorite facet of the first Call of Duty was the open-ended feel of the levels, and that's no different in COD2. Though the demo mission is fairly straightforward, you can still explore the many alleys of the city, staking out the best camping spots for knocking off Jerries.

    WinRAR is a lightweight, flexible, and easy-to-use archiving utility that can unpack most archive formats, as well as compress to both RAR and ZIP. Free to try for 40 days ($29 for single license), WinRAR is a top dog in the compression category.
    WinRAR's interface is about as simple as it gets. Start creating (or add to) an archive by dragging and dropping your files into the interface or by browsing through the Folder Tree side panel (when enabled). From there, the most common functions are laid out in the form of colorful, mostly intuitive icons along the top, which can all be customized by downloading themes from the company's Web site. You can Add files to, Extract, Test, Delete, or even Repair archives right from the main interface. Drop-down menus house the program's more advanced features, including self-extracting archives, archive locking, benchmarking, and autodeletion of temp files.

    Subtitle creation is hard work. We can go on for hours talking about it and the complexity involved. This is not the case, though. Subtitles Creator doesn't do that. What it does is convert your SRT subtitle files to the SST format. For those of you that are not familiar with this format, here is a little insight.

    The SST subtitle format is in fact a list of subpictures and the actual SST file to “rule them all”. This format is connected to the Sonic Scenarist DVD authoring software. The main role of the SST file is to set up the BMP format subpicture to show up at the given time. It also packs information regarding the font, line placement over the video stream and its color encoding technology.

    Subtitles Creator installs in no time at all and doesn't require any extra intervention upon its start. The simplicity of the install is kept throughout the whole execution of the software. Everything is in place and there's nothing that will bother you in any way. The one word to fully describe the interface of the program is “cool”. We can start by customizing the appearance of the subtitle or the file locations.

    They all take a few seconds to set and we'll have the end product ready for the Sonic Scenarist in a few more. Set the SRT source file, SST target file and image directory. The application provides up to three lines for subtitle display and customizable resolution. We can easily switch between the NTSC and PAL video encoding and also select the image format for the Bitmap subpictures (4, 8, 16 or 24 bit).

    Users will be able to fully revise the background, font and shadow of the subtitle and even preview its look in a special section. These being said and done, there is only one thing left to do. Hit the `parse` button and let Subtitles Creator mix it all up and trim it to the SST subtitle format. It takes the lines from your provided SRT file and their timings and sequentially produces the correspondent images. With this application, converting subtitles to specific Sonic Scenarist format is extremely easy and fast.

    NetworkMiner is a Network Forensic Analysis Tool (NFAT) for Windows. NetworkMiner can be used as a passive network sniffer/packet capturing tool in order to detect operating systems, sessions, hostnames, open ports etc. without putting any traffic on the network. NetworkMiner can also parse PCAP files for off-line analysis and to regenerate/reassemble transmitted files and certificates from PCAP files.

    NetworkMiner collects data (such as forensic evidence) about hosts on the network rather than to collect data regarding the traffic on the network. The main user interface view is host centric (information grouped per host) rather than packet centric (information showed as a list of packets/frames).
    NetworkMiner has, since the first release in 2007, become popular tool among incident response teams as well as law enforcement. NetworkMiner is today used by companies and organizations all over the world.

    The bottom line: Microsoft Security Essentials 2 will protect you, and it will generally do it well. However, its impact on system performance could be improved, and it's still a bit light in the tool belt.

    Now in its second iteration, Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) debuted as the lightweight, cloud-based successor to the paid security suite Live OneCare in 2009. Version 2 introduces deeper hooks into Internet Explorer and the default firewall in Vista and Windows 7. Security Essentials has begun to mature, although it's still rough at the edges.
    Overall, the installation time ran around 4 minutes on our test computer. That's not as blazing fast as some of the paid suites, which can complete installation in less than 60 seconds, but it is respectable for a free program.
    MSE 2's interface adopts a different color scheme than the previous version, going for various shades of gray to replace the vibrant blue and white look. It doesn't pop as much, but it also looks far less like a Windows XP relic.
    For those unfamiliar with the design, MSE has four tabs across the top. The Home tab contains your security status and scan options, and you can run a Quick Scan, Full Scan, or Custom Scan. A link at the bottom of the pane lets you change the scheduled scan.

    Popular and preeminent VoIP service Skype has wooed its fair share of people with an itch to ditch the landline and an Internet connection, especially those with international contacts. With its latest update to version 5, the company hopes to win over even more customers and keeping the current ones happy. Skype 5.0 features a streamlined interface, Facebok integration, and videoconferencing functionality.

    First, Skype tackled the overall user experience of the software. The new Home page integrates a feed of mood messages from your contacts and yourself, and it offers a variety of tutorials to help you use the various features of the service, from making a video call to signing up for a subscription. The company also aimed to simplify the overall interface in order to make calling, messaging, screen sharing, and file transferring more intuitive and easier to navigate. In addition, the contact search screen now features images and mood messages and offers real-time results.
    Skype is also offering a new group-video-calling feature. According to company data, about 40 percent of all Skype-to-Skype minutes were used on video calling. The logical step was to provide a feature that allowed users to chat with more than just one other person. Anyone who downloads version 5 will have a chance to test out the new functionality for free, though it will be a paid extra down the line.
