I have dozens of software applications and utility apps running at many facilities. Every now and then I like to dabble with a few that I can offer to you free of charge.
Mostly all of the apps tha I write run on any Windows box from Window95 to the most current Windows OS.
It's free. There's no catch or anything like that. As with all of my
free software, I appreciate an e-mail from you
telling me that you are using it.
About The Software:
CURCIO (who is not even Chinese) FORTUNE TELLER:
Finally a FORTUNE TELLER app that YOU CAN WRITE THE FORTUNES for. The app already comes with a ton of serious and really funny fortunes. However, you can write, add, or remove as many fortunes as you wish. This is a great office gag app. A great app for teaching, etc. My original FORTUNE TELLER app was a BIG HIT and purchased by quite a few corporate groups who had me customize the interface with their logo and info and write some corporate encouraging fortunes as well. This one is as cool, and includes a clock too !
THE SHELL GUY:
The shell guy makes it easy for you to access your frequently used applications or stuff that is otherwise a pain in the butt to find (character map, paint, calculator, etc.). You configure it for what you need to access. I use it everyday. I place it in my Startup, and keep it minimized in my tray for easy access to my frequently used applications.
NOTE: Version 1.0.3 Released 12/24/06 with Object Error corrected
NOTE: Version 1.0.4 Released 1/8/07 with added editing functions.
AUTOMATED MP3 BATCH TAGGER:
The Automated MP3 Batch Tagger is the perfect tool for adding TAGS (meta data) to a number of MP3 files at once. The software adds TITLE, ARTIST, ALBUM, YEAR, COMMENTS, and GENRE to all files in a selected directory. The AUTOMATION & MOVE TO features allow you to set how often you would like to have a tag job run on a directory. Once the files are tagged they can be moved to a "safe" directory so that the next batch of files can be added to the "tagging" directory for the next tagging cycle
NOTE: VERSION 1.0.3 Released 1/13/2007
- Added "DON'T TAG" function
- Added test if current Dir is the same as MOVE TO dir
- Added TAG SINGLE FILE only function
- Added TOOL TIP TEXT on mouse hover over object
MIND FIRE - SELF STUDY VIRTUAL
Repetition is one of the most basic learning techniques. Infants use it to learn to speak. Athletes use it to perfect athletic skills. MIND FIRE allows you to program the curriculam (Questions, Answers, and Images), refferred to as "THE STUDY" . MIND FIRE then allows the user to learn by viewing the study at their own leisure and pace. You can create an unlimited amount of studies on any topic, from basic skills in Mathematics, English, etc to complicated studies in Engineering, Finance, etc. The STEP function allows the user to view the study by pressing a button to move forward or back, or use the AUTOMATED feature to allow the app to step through the study at a predetermined "slideshow" like interval. This version of the app comes with 2 studies (FOOTBALL, and MP3 COMPRESSION) .... but you can roll as many of your own as you like. Maybe I'll create a few and make them available on this site for you.
When you need to change or correct file names, or replace file extensions, STRING REPLACER is the tool of choice. The example in the screenshot shows that a previous process had added the extension ".bad" to the XML files in a directory. When the issue was corrected, all of those XML files needed to be named correctly. STRING REPLACER did it with a few quick clicks.
- Added selective function features
- Added more HELP information
