I'm on Holidays! / What apps do you want to see?

I'm finally on holidays! Thank John for that. Wink

Anyway, I'd like to know, what apps would you like to see the most? (i.e. more games, more office tools, etc. No specific apps please)

Even though I did say no specific apps Wink

I doubt they'd have it in my local library Wink

- There is still no os portable voice over ip client or at least pc to pc voice talk programm. Some client who`s supporting encryption would be nice aswell.

- A portable ftp server.

- Portable linux kernel for windows.

- vpn

Well
  • I'm looking in to that
  • Hard, since they usually run as services. I'd just use XAMPP if I were you.
  • John's working on one AFAIK
  • Maybe
  • As in, SFTP? 'cause FileZilla has that.

Questt - VOIP there is i think!

Portable voice! I thought there were several. Perhaps you could let me know if i'm wrong. I've been having a look but not as IT knowledgeable as some.

- cute diddy PicoPhone neat and extra lightweight
- FoxFon/BirdFon (new yesterday) - needs checking out by someone knowledgeable on the group [one for FireFox and one for Thunderbird]
- Jajah

The latter two are Mozilla Addons released yesterday. I'd like to try these out if anyone needs a contact. Better than bloated skype i would have thought. But there are so many of these apps now - what i don't know is for pc-pc can one only communicate with the same software?

Also, you can only distribute the launcher, since the program isn't open source.

More gizmos, a bittorrent client that is as kick-ass as Azuereus would be nice, and maybe a partioning utility would be kick-ass. As for you Simeon My Eraser Portable has a launcher that actually works! Thats right try it again and you will discover that it will (probably) leave nothing behind in the da** registry!

There is a link to Torpark's official webpage, from there, there is a download link to a free edition of Torpark. That free edition is compatible with PAM.

Did you read my last post where I said it was compatible with PAM(PortableAppsMenu)?

I am not certain why you posted an abandonware, linux, this site, and u3 website list. I would assume various types of freeware, though U3 isn't free and freespire is n't win32, so I am at a loss. If it is your signature, you may want to re-read the forum guidelines. Only your personal website is allowed.

All you have to do to add Torpark to PAM is simply extract the fracking folder to the programs folder in PAM and poof you have installed torpark. There is nothing that needs to be edited or modified. Lock stock and barrel and have a nice day.

Might I suggest play around with stuff anf figure things out instead of demanding stuff be handed to you. Especially since Torpark is not supposed to be on this site even though it is made by the same person who runs this site it is not supported on this site.

Most emulators are already portable to begin with. They generally are a single exe file and that is it. Sometimes it is the whole folder that you extract that you need to copy. Depends on the emu but they already are portable.

www.frozen-bubble.org

Version 1 is portable, but it sounds like the author of FB is not gonna make v2 portable, least not any time soon - he's using it as a "tease" for folks to switch to Linux (Heh - good luck pal, I'll just boot into one of my LiveLinux CDs that has v2 & play it that way...)

That is, unless someone here wants to work on makin' a luancher for it or something...

Is anyone game for this...,uh..game to make it portable somehow?

For dkulchenko

Been using the free version of Deepburner (regular application) to burn single/multi-session CDs, DVDs, & create/burn ISOs for quite a while. I've found that the portable Deepburner found on their (www.deepburner.com) download site to be just as useful. It integrates with the PAM quite well.

On another note:
I bought a new Sandisk cruzer micro that was one of the U3 drives, which I very quickly formatted and stuck PApps on, but not before I noticed that the U3 interface had an eject button similar to the PAM's X at the bottom-right. This, however, virtually disconnects the drive making it "safe to remove" just like Win 2k+ does. I think it'd be a most-helpful feature and probably wouldn't be that hard to do.
Let me know if I need to move this to a different forum...

Definately would request a few more games. Nothing big and fancey just more than just soduku and minesweeper... They get boring to fast.

Ventrilo's got the worst license I've seen.

Ventrilo sucks

Yeah, I don't use Ventilo. I find its interface really bad.

Nevermind about Voice Chat

I found TeamTalk. Its just about completely portable (only thing you have to do is copy it after you install and uninstall again.) I also like how it intergrates the server with the client. Its not as feature rich as Teamspeak, but good enough.

Cygwin Portable?

I'm new to this portable apps stuff. So far, I really like it. How about a portable version of Cygwin (UNIX like environment for Windows). The difficult part would handling mount points. We would need to still be able to use Cygwin's setup.exe to add and remove Cygwin packages.

Thanks!
Steven

Cygwin is something I was going to look at but it seemed a bit too hard.
I'll take another look some day.

Portable proxy server

I'm after a portable personal proxy server (PPS). Not necessarily one that targets "anonymity" (eg uses web proxies).

I want something that acts as a proxy for all my portable apps that need to access the internet. I would start this PPS as soon as the USB key is plugged in. I would configure it with the current "real" (upstream) proxy details depending on where I am using the key (eg, I would enter no upstream proxy when I am using at home, I would enter my customer's proxy details if I am at a client site). These details could be saved as location "profiles". I would need to be able to store username / pwd details for each upstream proxy, as appropriate (support Basic, NTLM, Digest, etc).

Basically, it's something like Firefox's "Proxy Switcher", but as a stand-alone, portable app.

This way, I only need to setup all my portable internet-accessing apps with the details of PPS and as I move from location to location, I only need to change the PPS Profile and voila, all my other apps can still access the net...

I have tried making requests to several authors of existing close-but-not-quite-what-I'm-after solutions, but none have yet jumped on the chance (the closest I have got is with the author of bFilter, who just needs to add HTTP authentication for upstream proxies and the solution would be perfect! BFilter is open source, so maybe you only need to finish the job..).

Apologies for mentioning the app's name, but I use it for providing context and as an example of what I'm after... Smile

I am willing to provide suggestions for the name of your solution too, should you choose to attempt it.

cheers,

Seems a bit hard, but I'll take a look.

When I said no specific apps, I meant no topics like "I want Inkscape portable, please"

So, got any suggestions?

Well, I've already made FreeProxy and BFilter portable, but need the authors to support upstream HTTP proxy authentication.
Like I said, BFilter (http://bfilter.sourceforge.net)is closest to the mark (although I don't really need the ad-filtering, ironically!). The author intimated that s/he may include NTLM authentication in next release, but he has gone dark (support forums are down http://kyeu.info/proxo/forums/showthread.php?action=newpost&tid=939 and I don't have an email address). But BFilter is open source, so if you're handy at proxy programming, you could just code the missing bits!

There goes that idea.
