ClickFont – One Click Font Install

The process to install fonts on Windows is somewhat lengthy, especially if you have multiple font files to install.
Thanks to ClickFont, installing fonts is a one step process. ClickFont allows you to right click on a font file and install it with an added right click extension. If you have a folder with multiple font files in it, ClickFont will automatically recognize the fonts and install them.
The ClickFont developer(s) says it is different from the SendTo function in Windows because ClickFont registers installed fonts properly with a system call.

Chrome Nightly: mini_installer.exe isn’t updating

I downloaded the latest nightly build of Chrome, only to realize that the mini_installer.exe wouldn’t update my Chrome installation on Windows 7. I would run the executable, but nothing would happen. Finally, I decided to change the compatibility to Windows Vista and Vola!, it worked!
So if you’re having trouble with the mini_installer.exe, just right click the exe, goto Properties. Then goto the Compatibility tab and then choose Windows Vista. No matter if you delete the mini_installer.exe, the settings should stay the same for any mini_installer.exe in that same folder (Desktop?). …

How to Save Linerider 2 Track Data to Thumb Drive

I spent my entire computer class today creating a LineRider 2 track (which was pretty amazing haha), but I was a little frustrated when I had to log off and go to the next class because I would lose all of my data. The computers at my school have “deep freeze” software installed, which restores the computer to a certain state every time the computer is rebooted (almost like a system restore). This means the data that I saved on that computer’s internal memory would be erased and I would …

Klok: A free Adobe Air time tracking application

I wanted to find a free, easy application to track my time spent on various projects. I found Klok, its an Adobe AIR application! I downloaded it and it went fairly simple. The application is very simple to use, however it has a decent learning curve. I would say it took me almost 5 minutes to learn my way around the application, and I’m still finding new things out as I write this.

At first, when you launch the application, you are presented with the “Project View” screen. The first thing …

TreeSize Free: Clear your hard drive of huge files/folders!

Don’t you hate it how Windows doesn’t show the size of folders unless you right-click and choose properties. Well, that can take a long time if your looking through your whole hard drive, trying to find out what is taking up all that space.
TreeSize Free is a free, small program that shows you the biggest folders on your hard drive and then gives you easy access to viewing or deleting them. If you are planning on using the application a lot, then I would run the installer but if not, …

eBoostr 3 Released: Best version yet!

The folks over at eBoostr finally released their new version of eBoostr. eBoostr is a cache application that uses standard drives and memory to cache files, much like ReadyBoost on Vista. However, “Many reports included that eBoostr performs even better than ReadyBoost.” I use it on all my computer and I have been very pleased with the various betas that version 3 went through. I have been a beta tester since BETA3 back in 2007, I am very happy with this new version and I’m surprised at how much it …
