This program adds another page to the file property sheet (when you right-click on a file and then choose "Properties"). On this page you can find the checksum(s) for the file in question. Supported checksum algorithms are:
  • CRC16 - not frequently used, quite weak algorithm
  • CRC32 - common, used by several compression and file splitting applications
  • MD5 - crypto strength algorithm, very common in the Unix world
  • SHA1 - even stronger than MD5, but less used
Since calculating checksums is a very CPU intensive task, there are configuration options to specify which checksums should be calculated normally (defaults to MD5 only).

Version 1.1 corrects a bug affecting the SHA1 digest display if both the uppercase and divide-into-words options were used. There is no need to uninstall version 1.0 before installing 1.1 - it will simply upgrade an existing installation if found.

wmium is a WindowMaker DockApp that fetches the DSL usage information for Australian ISP Internode . The stats are continuously updated, roughly once per hour (as in accordance with the Internode recommendations). An encrypted SSL link is used to ensure that your password is never sent in cleartext over the network.

In addition to presenting the current stats, wmium now also has history graphs, and also the ability to request fresh data from the Internode billing system. See the README file for details.

In addition to the Window Maker DockApp, it now also contains a Gkrellm2 plugin, with almost the same capabilities. See the README-GK2 file for details.

Craig Small is providing a Debian apt repository. He says:
Just put this in your apt/sources.list
deb unstable main
and it will pull down the latest wmium deb.

telux is providing RPMs here.
Daniel Black has added wmium to the Gentoo Linux packages.

OS: Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD.
Dependencies: X11, Xpm and OpenSSL libs (-devel RPMs) needed. Additional requirements for the Gkrellm2 plugin.

Midi Mgr is an application specifically written with the Tungsten W in mind. By default on the Tungsten W, there is no way to add new ring tones to the Mobile application (only delete them!). Midi Mgr alleviates this concern, by allowing sounds to be copied between the mobile ring tones database, and the system midi sound database. It also provides its own database, where sounds can be stored "out of the way", for later use.

This is a simple yet very functional application for sending Wake-On-LAN Magic Packets(tm) to workstations supporting that technology. It's written entirely in Perl, so it should be highly portable.
It works by sending UDP packets to the restricted broadcast address, which means that it only works within a LAN (and after all, it's called Wake-On-LAN, not Wake-On-Internet).
It contains support for SecureON passwords, but that functionality is untested since I don't have any systems that support it.

OS: Tested on FreeBSD 5.1, but should work on any system that has Perl and a TCP/IP stack.

Cauldron is a program that can "cook" and "uncook" files. A "cooked" file is a file that has become corrupt during download due to an incorrect protocol being used. This happens frequently with poorly configured webservers A good example is with MP3 files; I'm sure most of us have downloaded a tune, only to find that it is ridden with hisses, clicks, bleeps and worse.

Fortunately, this "cooked" state of a file can be regressed back to its "raw" format again (referred to as "uncooking" the file). And this is precisely what Cauldron is designed to do, and to do it fast. Cauldron easily outperforms most (if not all!) other uncooking utilities available on the Web. Try it for yourself and see!

Note: MP3 is not the only filetype to suffer from this problem, any binary format can be affected (e.g. tgz, exe, zip, etc.)

FPU'99 is a modularized batch file processor. The main program containing only the file selector, all actual processing is performed in plug-in modules. As of writing, there exist only two modules, an MP3 Encoding module, based on the BladeEnc engine, and the SmartRename module, for intelligent batch renaming of files.

Included with FPU'99 is all the information you need to develop your own modules. And if you do create new modules, be sure to let me know, so that I can link to them from this page!

Furled is a small program that integrates into the Windows(tm) shell. It provides a quick and convenient way to rename downloaded files to their correct names instead of their "Some%20hardly%20visible%20name%20%28here%29.ext" counterparts.

With Furled installed, simply right-click on a file (or more) and select "Sanitize filename" from the menu and the file(s) will get renamed for you in an instant. If a file cannot be renamed successfully, it is kept with the old filename.

Since I had a request for it, here is a registry patch that allows Furled to be used on directories as well. Simply download and double-click; Press OK to integrate this into the registry and you're set to go. Right clicking on a directory should now show the option "Sanitize name".

WinExec is a small application launcher intended for use with HotKeys. Normally it is only possible to launch one instance of an application using a HotKey. WinExec works around this problem by starting up the wanted application and then exiting, so that the next HotKey press won't find a running instance of WinExec, and therefore launch another instance.

See the included Readme.txt for details.

Also, WinExec is perfect if you're using a HP multimedia keyboard and are having problems with applications not receiving the input focus when launched via one of the extended keys.
