StampCAT 10.21

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

Have you always combed the internet for a program that can help you take or maintain an inventory of your stamp collection? Perhaps, you might wish to give StampCAT a try to see how far you can go.

So what is StampCAT?

StampCAT is a database program that helps you to maintain an inventory of your stamp collection. The program will also help you monitor what you have, where it is precisely, as well as the total value of collection you have.

Based on feedback and several reviews of previous version of StampCAT; the publishers have introduced a few bug fixes as well as minor updates. There are a couple of fixes have been made, and users can now create custom browse views, multiple texts can now be displayed correctly, in the Report Designer window, and a few others.

StampCAT also has a powerful set of data fields that enable you to register information as detailed as you want. Information can be registered based on the following formats; purchase date, location, price, market value, quantity, your own notes, country, catalogue number, design, topic, color, perforation, condition, watermark, etc.


One of the downsides to this application is that no data is supplied; and that means users have to enter all information manually. Nonetheless, StampCAT is not a bad program.

WinSSHD 5.53

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

Are you searching for an application that is designed basically as an SSH server, with graphical configuration, support for public key authentication etc; then I think you should take a look WinSSHD.

WinSSHD is a shareware program that is designed as an SSH server with graphical configuration, support for public key authentication and Windows domain accounts, secure TCP/IP tunneling with flexible permission rules, vt100, xterm or bvterm terminal access, secure file transfer with SFTP and SCP, and secure graphical access with Remote Desktop or WinVNC.

The publishers have designed WinSSHD basically for all Windows NT-series operating systems. The program’s supported platforms include the following; Windows 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, 2008, and 7. Both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows are supported. Users will also be amazed that WinSSHD 5.53 also supports Windows NT4.

WinSSHD supports secure remote access via console (vt100, xterm and bvterm supported), secure remote access via GUI (this requires Remote Desktop or WinVNC), secure file transfer with the use of SFTP and SCP (compatible with all major clients), and secure TCP/IP connection tunnelling (port forwarding).

Any Downsides?

I find it a bit funny when people make some funny comments about the price of this program. The truth is WinSSHD has a 30 day trial limit; and there is no harm in giving it s try since it is basically free during the period.

It honestly stands out above the most of its “contemporaries” and worth checking out.

Skip Metro Suite 1.0 – Boot Directly To Classic Desktop Easily

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

Heard of this cool tool yet? Skip Metro Suite

Skip Metro Suite is a freeware application that allows you to boot directly to Classic Desktop in Windows 8 RTM as well as Release Preview. The program is designed for Windows 8, and features tweaks from the publishers’ latest article “How to disable the edge panels (Charms Bar and Switcher) in Windows 8.” With Skip Metro Suite, you can disable top-left corner (aka Switcher) as well as Charms Bar hint. This feature eliminates the need to tweak anymore in order to perform all tasks.

A lot or some of us already are aware that Windows 8 doesn’t allow you to boot directly to Classic Desktop; and rather you have to click your Desktop tile on every occasion you log in. What the publishers of Skip Metro Suite have been able to do with the program is that users of Windows 8 can now boot directly to Classic Desktop instead of their operating systems.

Also included among the features of this version in review is the ability to disable the disable the Charms Bar Hint, as well as disable the Switcher.


There have been a couple of complaints about how sluggish Skip Metro Suite can be. However, the program is still new, and a lot of changes can still be made.

Not a bad program; after all it is free, and the future certainly looks very bright.

Calendarscope 5.7 Beta 3 – Planning, Managing, And Scheduling Appointments Just Got Easier

Monday, August 20th, 2012

Need an application for planning, managing, and scheduling appointments? Then Calenderscope may be just what you need.

So What’s The Deal With Calenderscope?

Calendarscope is an application that supports a lot of useful features that can be used for planning, managing, and scheduling appointments. Calendarscope is also useful when it comes to meetings, birthdays, vacations, as well as special events. The application gives you access to all your events in a daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly overview.

Duality Software, the publisher of Calenderscope recently released a new version – Calenderscope 5.7 Beta 3. This new release comes with a couple of updates and minor bug fixes to make the program more stable. This time around, customers can access support for HandySync for Google 2.5 beta 3 (Android, Apple iPhone/iPod/iPad, RIM BlackBerry devices, etc.).

This version also includes the addition of ability to synchronize data automatically, as well as improved iCalendar support. So it means users are most likely going to enjoy version 5.7 because the publishers have fixed a couple of bugs as well.

Calendarscope can be installed on a separate system as long as the username remains the same. However, multiple users or those who wish to use it on multiple systems can choose the family license option. Despite being in beta stage, this version appears to be a bit stable; especially when you consider that the improvement on the HTML support.


Only stuff I see people complain about with this tool is price, I guess the $27.96 price tag seems kind of steep when you consider the fact that there are some freeware that can be used for scheduling.

But to be fair to the publishers, this tool does work and is not buggy. It really is worth trying out. Like I tell people when they complain about price, give it a try [download the trial version], if it isn’t worth it to you let it go, if it works for you upgrade to full version.

Windows Post-Install Wizard (WPI) 8.5.2

Thursday, August 9th, 2012

Windows Post-Install Wizard (WPI) is a hypertext application designed for giving users choice. While Windows XP offers many ways of customizing the setup process out of the box, its major drawback is the lack of being able to select which applications an end user may install.

In the past, end users and administrators needed to either download the files manually, or create overly complex scripts that could only be used once. This allows you to create one image, which can then be custom configured, and optionally, automated, so that end users can install any applications that have been configured into WPI. A couple of changes and minor bug issues have been fixed. A few of the changes in this version include the following; minor code changes, optimizations and updates, and fixing of items in ‘horizontal layout weren’t updated properly.’

Windows Post-Install Wizard (WPI) enables end users and administrators needed to either download the files manually, or create overly complex scripts that could only be used once. What this means is that you can now create one image that can be configured to suit your taste, as well as the choice to automate so that you can also easily install any application that have been configured into WPI. The program is a bit advanced for non professionals; but may not take more than a couple of days to get used to for inexperienced users.
