AllKeys Macro 2.21

Tuesday, January 29th, 2008

AllKeys Macro is a macro program plus work/break timer and mouse replacement tool. Provides a flexible but robust macro solution that allows users to record and organize a large number of macros.

Pros: This application is a macro manager, work/break timer and a mouse replacement tool. As a macro manager it lets macros to be recorded, edited and arranged properly. Macros could be applicable to specific applications or to all of them. Macro would be a nice way to create keyboard short cuts for repetitive tasks such as filling your address somewhere or to launch your favorite web mail. The software lets you remap the keys to whatever location you want a particular key or a set of keys to be. When defining a macro one could specify an application for the macro. The macro would then operate only in the environment of that application. Import/export of macros are provided for. Editing facilities for editing a macro recorded already or imported can be done through a simple interface.

One really nice feature of the macro playback is the speed of playback. One usually takes a bit of time to type in the commands. But since a computer can take in the input much faster and yet recognize the key strokes, macros can be arranged to be played back at a faster rate.

If you would prefer, you could replace the mouse operation by keyboard strokes. Initially you define a set of keys to be the up/down and lateral movement keys as also left and right clicks on the mouse.

The work/ break timer functionality lets the user define his continuous work time in one stretch and the break time there after. You get alerts for the break time. What’s more is performance statistics like keystroke and mouse clicks done per minute are recorded and displayed.

Cons: The user interface feels a little too complicated for the application. Learning time too could be significant. Unless you use a lot of macros, investing in learning time may not be worthwhile.

Overall the application does perform a useful function, overall rating 4 stars.

Here is a useful tool worth checking out.

D3DGear is an advanced utility for Windows DirectX & OpenGL games. The cool thing about this software is that it automatically measures a 3D game’s frame rate and displays it on screen. It allows you to customize font color, size and position of the frame rate display.

It is easy to use as it can capture 3D game screenshots with the press of a hotkey, and automatically save screenshots into a file. You can define screenshot hotkey, save file format and save file directory. One other thing I love about it, is that D3DGear also can record 3D games to movie.

In the recently released version, the bug that didn’t allow D3DGear to work with the game Shaiya has been fixed.

PSPad Editor

Wednesday, October 31st, 2007

PSPad, in its latest version released a couple of days ago (version, is a freeware text editor that has been put out by a very bright programmer named Jan Fiala. Now, most people will look at that first sentence and shrug their shoulders, thinking that the last thing the world really needs is another freeware text editor. Well, while Jan has certainly chosen to inject his programming prowess into a super-saturated market in today’s world, at the same time the PSPad Editor really has a lot going for it that places it above a number of the text editors that are available today. A lot of these text editors are poorly thought out and even more poorly designed, but as you check out the features of PSPad Editor you will find that it is quite a bit different.

For starters, the layout of PSPad is so good that you can find anything that you would use frequently from the main screen. There is no need to pull down menus and even if you needed one of those menus, there are so many keyboard hotkeys that you can use in order to save tons of time. In addition to that, there is no complex installation process for PSPad; it is good to go right away. Finally, the editor itself not only has the ability to edit text documents, but you can also use it as a HEX editor, an HTML editor, an FTP client as well as an explorer for many other coding languages. It really has a lot compiled into one compact software piece and this is why it is certainly worth a look.

Hamachi for Windows – peer to peer connection made easy

Friday, October 26th, 2007

There are a number of different programs on the internet today responsible for doing a number of different things, but what makes Hamachi such a standout program is that it happens to be a program that a lot of people use to facilitate their day-to-day lives. What I mean by that is that a lot of people want to connect with each other in a way that things like firewalls and internet inconsistencies sometimes prevent, but you can use Hamachi to help remedy those problems and make true peer to peer connection a possibility.

The thing that makes a lot of people like Hamachi straight out of the box is the fact that Hamachi is a program that is easy to use and easy to set up. There is in fact no configuration required whatsoever; you just put the name of the network in and the password for the network and then you are good to go. The Hamachi program can then be used in order to initiate a direct connection between two computers that are both connected to the internet.  The important part, however, is that this connection can be done regardless of any of the other circumstances of either of the two computers. This is important because it is relatively innovative in that sense.

IObit SmartDefrag

Thursday, October 25th, 2007

So, most people that have a windows operating system are already well aware of the fact that their operating system has a disk defragmenter option that you can use when times get tough, your hard drive begins to run slow and everything seems like it needs to be fixed.   People run the defrag program and it tends to make things better.  Therefore, why would you need another defrag program to use instead of the Windows disk defragmentation service?   Well, there are a number of reasons that you could require one and the two main ones have to do with the idea of automation and the idea of efficiency.
First and foremost, the program that comes with Windows is not particularly efficient.  Not only does it take a lot of resources to use, but at the same time it also doesn’t do the job as efficiently as it could. The IObit program fixes both of these points by being able to run in the background seamlessly with your other programs; something that it could only do through the reduction of system resource usage which in turn can only come from more efficient operation. As to the second aspect, the aspect of automation, the program can be configured to scan for fragmentations automatically and therefore can be used to keep your hard drive running smoothly without you having to constantly check on the progress.
