Tor AutoSwitcher – Switch Tor Identities Automatically

December 1st, 2010

Tor AutoSwitcher is a free utility that automatically switches Tor  to a new identity every 10 minutes. The time interval is configurable. In case you’re wondering what the hell “Tor“ is and why would anyone care about “switching” their identity, here’s a relevant quote from the Tor article Wikipedia: Tor is a system intended to […]

Track Your AdSense Earnings On Your Desktop

February 16th, 2010

There are two things that I do every morning, right after turning on the computer. First, I read the latest strip of Schlock Mercenary. Then I check my Google AdSense earnings for the previous day. It’s the perfect mix of business and pleasure, and a great way to start a new day. But enough about […]

Automatically Restart Crashed Or Hanged Applications

March 4th, 2009

Don’t you hate it when programs hang or crash? I find it especially annoying when a background application like an IM client or a bandwidth monitor silently crashes – sometimes I only notice the problem hours later when I’ve already missed a bunch of messages. I’m sure you’ve encountered a few “Not responding” errors and […]

December 27th, 2007

This is a simple graphical user interface for the DAA to ISO converter. The original converter tool requires that you know how to use command-line utilities – and many users do not. That is why I made a simple Windows interface for it. You can download it (and the converter) here.

Wikipedia search utility

September 7th, 2006

This is another idea I have had for a while. I use Wikipedia nearly every day, and every time I encounter an unknown word or concept, it’s the first place to look for it. So I thought it would be more comfortable if I could just select the text to be searched for, press some […]

wsCryptoPad text editor

September 2nd, 2006

This is more of a proof-of-concept that I created, but still pretty neat – it’s a text editor that stores the text in it’s own exe-file, compresses that text and optionally encrypts it. And it’s just 93 KB in size and doesn’t require installation! Useful for… storing passwords, maybe 🙂 Source code is available, so […]

wsKillHung application

August 29th, 2006

If you are a programmer you have probably encountered a situation when the program you are debugging suddenly enters an infinite loop or somesuch and starts consuming 100% CPU resources. Sure, you can press Ctrl-Alt-Delete and kill it from Task Manager, but it takes ages because everything is slooow and sometimes you’d just rather hit […]
