  1. Kel, I was wondering, why was ColorCop dumped? I quite liked that utility...
  2. Hey Kel, is there any benefit of swapping TaskSwitchXP (http://www.ntwind.com/software/taskswitchxp.html) for VistaSwitcher (http://www.ntwind.com/software/vistaswitcher.html) ? I know that TaskSwitchXP was open source, but it is no longer supported (or developed). VistaSwitcher now supports WinXP, Vista, and 7, whereas TaskSwitch supports Win2K (and support on Vista is iffy at best). Care to put your thoughts on this? I am interested to see what VistaSwitcher offers over TaskSwitchXP.
  3. Hey Kel, can you double check whether or not the download links (v10.4) work? For some reason, I can't seem to access the files.
  4. Mainsoft ClipName v1.3 released :: http://www.mainsoft.fr/en/downloads.htm EDIT-- Hey Kel, I think I might've found an alternative to your MMM power menu. ShellExView v1.41 - Shell Extensions Manager and ShellMenuView v1.12 - Disable/enable context menu items of Explorer I heard that these were more lightweight, and best of all, they're actively developed !! (MMM Free was last updated on 2005, AFAIK, and the + version on 2008.) Let me know what you think ?
  5. Hey Kel, I found a nifty tool that might be useful:: Shell Object Editor--> http://www.tropictech.de/modules/PDdownloads/singlefile.php?cid=1&lid=5 UberPack or CPL Pack? What 'cha think, Kel ? (Also, for the people looking to clear out duplicate entries in the Control Panel, this utility will do the thing !! The instructions were from here: http://windowsxp.mvps.org/cpicon.htm ; I just hope I didn't delete the ones that weren't duplicated (~_~)...)
  6. Hey rick, any chance of updating this addon for WMP Slipstreamer version 1.4.2?
  7. Heya guys!! First, I wanna say I love this tool-- make an optimized silent installer and an optimized addon all-in-one. Amazing and simple :thumbsup_anim: . ----- EDIT:: Apparently, the prefs.js file does have some differences, but it becomes very negligible. As it turns out, the optimizations does geared toward the specific processor build matters most. Meaning the compilation/ installation optimizations for the P4 and P3 systems give the browser an extra boost . (As it stands, my P4 FF build became phenomenally faster after Pigfoot\'s optmizations. Previously, IE8 was actually faster than my 3.0.7 vanilla FF (guessing the addons slowed everything down); now 3.0.7 Pigfoot\'s build runs faster by like 2-3 times (using estimate- may not actually be right [-_-]). Though, P4s are supposed to be faster than P3s anyway (>.>) ... Gotta note: Swiftfox on Ubuntu P3 builds runs nicely considering the processors age. Really satisfied with Processor-geared optimized builds... Why don\'t they do them often anymore? The performance rewards feels amazing . ----- Got a little question: are some of optimizations builds (ex. pigfoots) done in the profile? Reason why I\'m asking is because I use FEBE (really great Firefox addon btw) to backup my FF add-ons/ themes/ bookmarks/ settings cross platform. That means I backup the entire profile and replace the previous one. Thus, I fear if any optimizations were to be made in one profile (eg. my Windows profile as compared to my Ubuntu one), it would be lost. Can anyone double check if profile replacement eliminates some of the optimizations done by the Firefox builds? Thanks !! (I think a easy way to check would be to check is by doing a fresh install of FF, copying the profile prefs.js file, then installing the optimized builds via silent installer, and then checking out the prefs.js.) btw, I\'m using Pigfoot\'s optmized build (P3). Hm, I think it would be a good idea to simply compare the files via Notepad++\'s Compare plugin (or any other text editor that can compare text files). I\'ll upload my prefs.js right now (hopefully, my plugin-added-preferences won\'t be too difficult to differentiate from [-_-]). I currently can\'t check this myself because I am on my Ubuntu machine and am not using my Windows machine. Windows = FF Addon Maker Pigfoot\'s P3 optimizations; Ubuntu = Swiftfox 3.04pre I really appreciate it !! Thanks!! (If I find out that the prefs.js are indeed different in the various optimized builds, I will make a separeate prefs.js backup individually to preserve the optimizations geared toward different platforms/ processors.)
  8. New version alert !! http://www.ie7pro.com/ -- 2.4.5
  9. Can we get SCVHost Viewer? http://blogs.howtogeek.com/mysticgeek/2009...tance-is-doing/ http://www.codeplex.com/svchostviewer This looks amazing, track down which ones doing what -- and especially helpful if a malicious program takes over svchost . [Or do you think this might be better in uberpack?]
  10. New updates: HashCheck 2009/01/13 - 2.1.5 * [bug #4] [Localizations] Added Greek translation. (translator: "XhmikosR") * [bug #5] [Localizations] Changed "context menu" to "shortcut menu" in the en-US localization (this is apparently the technically correct term in Windows). * [bug #6] [installer] The installer will now remind the user to log off and log back on after the installation is completed if the installer determines that it is necessary (when updating an existing installation, the shell process needs to be restarted in order to get it to load the new version into memory). Open CMD Here 2009/01/13 - 1.1.10 * [bug #6] [installer] The installer will now remind the user to log off and log back on after the installation is completed if the installer determines that it is necessary (when updating an existing installation, the shell process needs to be restarted in order to get it to load the new version into memory). * [bug #7] [Localizations] Changed the access key for the Greek translation. * [bug #18] [installer] Fixed Windows 7 installation error. And any luck with XPSysPad, Zenmap, or ColorCop? Thanks, I look forward to your new release !!
  11. Hey Kel, think these two programs would be a nice addition (to either your UberPack or CPL pack)? XP SysPad & Zenmap GUI XP SysPad:: http://www.xtort.net/xtort-software/xpsyspad/ http://www.askvg.com/xp-syspad-a-must-have...or-power-users/
  12. Heya guys!! I would just like to post up a request for this little nifty program, Serious Samurize: http://www.samurize.com/modules/news/ Here is a sample Samurize only desktop: http://lifehacker.com/5043712/roll-your-ow...-sunset-desktop Also, can you include several popular configuration scripts into the package so we can have a nice and nifty addition to the default package? I'm asking for something like the configuration files mentioned here: http://lifehacker.com/5087956/customize-yo...-enigma-desktop -- Also, check these out, since these are really nice desktops inspired by customization work: http://lifehacker.com/5101092/engima+inspi...desktop-roundup As for the other add-on: Rainlender: http://www.rainlendar.net/cms/index.php (nice to have in a install with Samurize.) Here are some nice and brief information about the programs from Lifehacker: http://lifehacker.com/5096769/five-best-de...omization-tools -- scroll/ read around So what do you think? How about it? THANKS VERY MUCH !!
  13. New version has been released: 2.4.4 http://fileforum.betanews.com/detail/IE7pro/1168277137/1 http://www.ie7pro.com/ Can you please update?
  14. Heya Kel!! How about considering Samurize into the pack? http://www.samurize.com/modules/news/ Screenshots: http://www.samurize.com/modules/myalbum/ I found this app via Lifehacker mention: http://lifehacker.com/5096769/five-best-de...omization-tools --> Looks like its really efficient, nice, and truly customizable. What do you think? It should be a great program to add onto the CPL pack. (Unless you feel it fits better with the Uberpack .)
