+++GREEN AWARD TESTING+++

The "Green Award" is awarded to software which:

* does not require installation
* does not write to the registry
* does not create or modify files outside of its own
directory

Testing for the above criteria was done as follows:

1. Use grep to return all apps whose listings
include the + symbol (+=no install necessary):
grep "+" *.html > filename.txt
http://www.interlog.com/~tcharron/grep.html

2. Take registry snapshots with RegShot before and
after testing each app:
http://regshot.ist.md/

3. Use the Windows "Find" function to locate newly
created/modified files:
Start -> Find -> Files or Folders -> Date ->
Modified/Created -> during the previous 1 day ->
Find Now.

Near completion of all testing, fileWATCH v3.30
(shareware) was discovered, which does an excellent
job of tracking the creation, modification, and
deletion of files:
http://www.apogeonline.com/libri/00483/allegati/software/Crypto/security/fw330.zip

The latest release is version 5, but it is larger
and requires Microsoft Windows Installer:
http://kevin.gearhart.com/filewatch/

Suggestions on other approaches to step 3 are
welcome:
mail@xxxxxxxxxxxx

As a final note, *all* apps are checked for
dependencies using a PE (portable executable) dump
utility like PEBrowse or PEDUMP:
http://www.friends-of-fpc.org/tools/misc/pebrowse/
http://www.wheaty.net/pedump.zip

PCMag.com has a new policy for their utilities:

"The PC Magazine Utility Library is now available
by subscription only. For just $19.97 (or $14.97
if you're a current subscriber to PC Magazine's
print or digital edition), subscribers get full
access for 12 months, including: great new files
and updates throughout the year -- usually one per
month -- access to all 130+ useful, smart
utilities in the Library, and technical support."

Thus, the following have been removed from TinyApps:

InCtrl5 [766k] {S}
http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,4149,9882,00.asp
Monitor changes made by install programs.

It is also interesting to note that while PC
Magazine provided the source code for these apps,
they are not "open source", nor can the files be
distributed without permission.

TinyApps.Org is offering a 100% organic cotton Tux tshirt for $20.

An image of the shirt can be found at:
https://tinyapps.org/tuxshirt.jpg

Ordering information is at the bottom of this message.

10% of all profits from these shirts will go to Debian
http://www.debian.org/ , the distro on which Knoppix
http://www.knopper.net/knoppix/index-en.html is based.

This all started when I tried to send Klaus Knopper a donation for
creating Knoppix, an insanely great Linux distro. He suggested that
I instead offer the money to Debian, but they did not have an
online payment system for donations.

I decided to make a shirt instead and send a check for 10% of the
profits. I also decided to offer a free shirt to Klaus and others
who helped create this opportunity:

Linus Torvalds (creator of Linux)
http://www.cs.helsinki.fi/u/torvalds/

Larry Ewing (creator of Tux, which he crafted using The GIMP)
http://www.isc.tamu.edu/~lewing/linux/

Neal Tucker (creator of the EPS version of Larry's logo)
(still looking for contact info)

The organic cotton shirts were provided by Kumba Clothing
http://www.kumbaclothing.com/ at a very reasonable cost, and
printed here on Maui by Aloha T-shirt Co.
http://www.alohatshirts.com/

Why use organic cotton?
http://www.kumbaclothing.com/why.html


To order, send an email to:

tshirt@xxxxxxxxxxxx

Please specify quantity, size (large or extra large), and how you
will be making payment (PayPal, money order, or check). Please DO
NOT send payment before receiving an email confirming your order.
Shipping is $3 via Priority Mail anywhere in the U.S. and $5 via
Airmail worldwide.

Shirts ship within 1 business day of receiving payment.

GOOGLE ADSENSE

Text ads from Google AdSense are being served on
TinyApps. It's astounding just how relevant the ads
are.

For example, this archived blog page:
https://tinyapps.org/blog/2003_06_01_archive.html
contains quotes from Thoreau and Bucky Fuller, though
the word "quote" is not used anywhere on the page.
The top two ads from Google are "Inspirational Quote
Print" and "Motivational Posters"!

Meanwhile, on the "Text" page of TinyApps:
https://tinyapps.org/text.html
ads for UltraEdit and other text tools appear.

Your comments on this new program would be most

Dariusz Stanislawek (creator of EDXOR) codes
wonderfully tiny apps. When asked about his design
philosophy, Dariusz replied: "(I)t's identical to
your site's motto 'Small is beautiful'. I choose C
and a bit of Assembler as my programming languages
and use the free Borland C/C++ compiler. I find
undocumented Windows API calls and every possible
programming/linking trick to make my apps small, fast
and efficient. My apps are very small, but please
note that they embed info/help, so effectively they
are even smaller :-)"

Renamer v6.0 final [256k] {S} Rename multiple files

trim and many other batch operations. Features undo,
preview, 'change'-operation and can work in sub

name to ID3 v1 tags and modify files' ID3 tags which
makes it perfect for renaming MP3's.
http://www.albert.nu/default.asp?sub=programs/default.asp?sub=renamer/main.htm

Martijn kindly sent word of his project: "I have
written an application that may be applicable to your
site. It's called Enumerator, and is a moduler batch
processor, which, among others, can for example
rename a batch of files. Only two modules are
available at present, but more are in the making. It
can be found at http://enum.sereneconcepts.nl . It is
free and still in beta stage."
