Only free usefull tools for everyday and everybody

19Sep Project Dogwaffle

Project Dogwaffle lets you be creative without the fear of mom or wifey yelling at you because you messed up your clothes again. No sudden spills, no funny fumes. You can paint, erase it, and try again, and again, and again…

Project Dogwaffle version 1.2 (this freeware version) is based on the powerful achitecture of  Project Dogwaffle 2.0.  It’s a light, yet powerful tool for artistic expression.  We felt that the aging prior free version (v1.11b) was in need of an update, since it was written for earlier operating systems and we wanted our new users to have the speed and power of our newer software architecture.

Dogwaffle 1.2 is not just a stripped-down save-disabled time-expiring trial demo of our full software – it’s a fully functional version with some new features too. It is not save-disabled, there’s no time-limit, no need to register, and there’s no spyware or adware coming with it.

For users who want to get even more powerful tools, there is a choice of commercial versions at low prices.  There you will get even more more advanced features, more filters, more special FX and more animation support. That said, the freeware version 1.2 is a great tool for young artists who are just getting started, and for seasoned professionals alike.

Programmers will find that our plugin interface (SDK) supports all but one plugin command, so they can develop applications that work with either the full version or this free version. Additional features can also be found by way of the new Lua scripting gateway.

For graphics support, we have included internal support for BMP files, as well as the native Targa format.  Single images as well as brushes and animation frame sequences can be loaded in these formats. If you have images in other formats you can easily convert from other formats to BMP or Targa with Irfanview or XnView and other image viewers, editors and converters.

18Sep ratDVD

ratDVD is a highly compressed file type that maintains all the contents of a Digital Versatile Disc (DVD) movie, while reducing significantly the overall size. A typical DVD (usually above 4 gigabytes) can be compressed to about 1 or 2 Gb.

ratDVD works by compressing a full DVD using a proprietary codec named “XEB”. The resulting ratDVD file can then be played directly in a computer (as long as the needed codec has been installed) by a DirectShow-compatible DVD player, or converted back into standard DVD format.

ratDVD gained some popularity due to several reasons, in particular the fact that it is very easy to use, and was available at no cost. The ability to greatly compress DVDs while retaining the complete structure (such as menu titles, multiple camera angles, …) has especially appealed to communities interested in sharing content over network connections.

05Sep PuTTY – Free Telnet and SSH Client

PuTTY is a free implementation of Telnet and SSH for Win32 and Unix platforms, along with an xterm terminal emulator.

PuTTY is a client program for the SSH, Telnet and Rlogin network protocols.

These protocols are all used to run a remote session on a computer, over a network. PuTTY implements the client end of that session: the end at which the session is displayed, rather than the end at which it runs.

In really simple terms: you run PuTTY on a Windows machine, and tell it to connect to (for example) a Unix machine. PuTTY opens a window. Then, anything you type into that window is sent straight to the Unix machine, and everything the Unix machine sends back is displayed in the window. So you can work on the Unix machine as if you were sitting at its console, while actually sitting somewhere else.

01Sep doPDF free PDF converter

doPDF6.1 installs itself as a virtual PDF printer driver so after a successful installation will appear in your Printers and Faxes list. To convert to PDF, you just have to print the document to doPDF, the free pdf converter. Open a document (with Microsoft Word, WordPad, NotePad or any other software), choose Print and select doPDF. It will ask you where to save the PDF file and when finished, the PDF file will be automatically opened in your default PDF viewer. The video below shows how to create a PDF file from Microsoft Word (word to pdf):

Main benefits for using this free PDF converter:

  • It’s free – PDF converter free for both commercial and personal use.
  • 64-bit support – can be installed on 64-bit operating systems.
  • No GhostScript – doesn’t require 3rd party programs to do PDF files (like GhostScript). This makes the setup file to be incredibly small compared to other free PDF converters.
  • Customizable resolution – you can choose any resolution from 72 to 2400 dpi.
  • Predefined/custom page sizes – choose a default page size (Letter, Legal, A4, A5, A6, …) or enter your own custom page size.
  • Searchable PDFs – you can search for text within the created PDF file (and search engines will also index the text from the PDF).
  • Multi-language – choose a language for the user interface from the 20 languages currently supported.
  • Do your part in saving the planet – instead of consuming paper to print your document, why not create a PDF file out of it and spare a couple of planet-saving trees?
  • Barely uses any computer resources – compared to other free PDF converters, doPDF barely uses any memory or CPU resources when doing the actual conversion to PDF.

doPDF is a free PDF converter, it is not a PDF viewer. To view PDF files you will need the free Adobe Reader.
