Notices for 6th August 2016 to 21st April 2020


Saturday, 6th August 2016

Back in March, one Juergen Lohnert requested a portable build of Batch-RegEx (thus making him user no. 2, after Anthony). I knocked up a fresh build that would look for the preferences file in the same directory as the executable first, before falling back to %APPDATA%\Telcontar.

I have now recompiled each program (except 7-ade, which is non-portable) to enable portable mode, and created a build script to enable it (by putting a blank preferences file inside of the zip file ready). In addition, each program now also has an Inno Setup–generated installer: manually unpacking zip files and moving files to Program Files in order to update the program gets tedious.

SMTP Werkzeug 1.5 is now available, with the addition of EICAR and GTUBE test messages, as well as some adjustments to the user interface. Since we do use this program at work, I’ve also adjusted its page to put a more positive spin on the program, since it’s genuinely useful and the framework bugs aren’t really a huge setback.

Having replaced my Microsoft mouse at home over two years ago with a Cherry model, it was high time that I finally wrote up a review for the replacement. I have now posted a Cherry MC 4000 review, with comparisons to the mouse it replaced, the IntelliMouse Optical (reviewed back in 2010).
