Have you ever waded through link after link on a web site, downloading every single link to disk? If so you will understand how boring and time consuming that can be. With WTR you can download a single web page which WTR will analyze for you and then give a list of all downloadable links. Then WTR will download every link you wish one after another, without having to be told twice. If you wish you can even configure WTR to use your favorite virus scanner to check that no downloaded file could potentially contaminate your computer.

WTR is multilingual, this means that I have included translations for a few languages, English, French, German, Portuguese and Spanish. Why should only the English speaking get cool software? Simply select your language when you first run WTR, or change the language by clicking the flag in the corner of the window.

DVD Shrink 3.2.0.15 - Windows 95/98/Me/2000/XP
(FileSize: 1 mb) [Freeware] ScreenShot

DVD Shrink is software to backup DVD disks. You can use this software in conjunction with DVD burning software of your choice, to make a backup copy of any DVD video disk.

DVD Shrink does not burn DVDs! The output from DVD Shrink is saved as files on your hard drive, which you can then burn to a DVD-R using separate burning software, such as the software provided with your DVD-R drive.

Why Use DVD Shrink :
Most DVD titles are designed to prevent you from making copies.

The first preventative measure is encryption. Most DVD titles are encrypted, which prevents you from either copying them to your hard drive, or if you manage to do so, being able to play the resulting files. DVD Shrink overcomes this problem with built-in decryption algorithms.

The next problem is not so easy. Most DVD video titles are simply too large to fit, without modification, onto a single recordable DVD-R disk. DVD Shrink overcomes this problem by modifying or "shrinking" the data from your original DVD.

DVD Shrink provides two ways of shrinking your DVD disk. These are re-authoring and re-encoding. You can use one, or the other, or for maximum "shrinkage", both combined.

Last but not least, why use DVD Shrink? Because DVD Shrink is FREE!

JAlbum runs on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and others and speaks 13 languages. Today JAlbum is mentioned over 300.000 times on the Internet (Google+Altavista) and this site has nearly 4000 visitors per day and a live community. I hope you find it your tool of choice for sharing images.

JAlbum is written after numerous disappointments with existing album software. With JAlbum you have full control of the look of the generated album, not just color theme and basic layout, still making an album is just a matter of drag and drop + a button click if you prefer to use one of the many existing looks. JAlbum will process your images, make index pages and slide show pages and even upload the final album to the Internet for your friends to see. No extra software is needed to view the albums, -just your web browser.

What's new in this version:

-Skins may now have their own "plugins" folder for really skin-specific plugins (searched before the main plugins folder)
-Image filters that modifies the image size can now signal this by implementing the se.datadosen.jalbum.ModifiesSize interface. JAlbum can then correctly calculate values for the ---Width and ---Height variables. The bundled FixedShapeFilter and XBorderFilter have been updated to implement this interface. The bundled Wedding skin now demonstrates the new simplicity this new scheme has brought to skins.
-Japanese translation added. Thank you Masaki Katakai and Furusawa Hideaki

Consolidate as many diagnostic tools as possible into one bootable CD. Wouldn't you like to avoid digging into the dusty box to look for the right floppy disk, but simply run them all from a single CD? Then the Ultimate Boot CD is for you!

-Added INSERT for UBCD. Thanks to Charles Appel for his contribution.

-Added PTS DiskEditor V1.04. Thanks to Valden Longhurst for the suggestion.
-Added NwDsk (NetWare Boot Disk). Thanks to Erwin Veermans for providing the boot image.
-Added Arachne boot image with built-in network driver support. Thanks to Erwin Veermans for providing the boot image.
-All images loaded with memdisk are now compressed with gzip. To modify an image compressed with gzip, you need to unzip it first. The application you use to extract the image itself (after you've unzipped it) may not be able to read the file unless you change the extension, so you may have to rename the file to include the .img extension. Once your finished modifying the image you should zip it with the following command (or equivalent) 'gzip -9 image.img', then rename to match it's original name (e.g. image.gz).
