Irfanview: possible image viewer app for USB in existance

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on January 6, 2006 - 1:04pm

I have been using Irfanview (see
for many years. I have used it on my USB stick without
a problem. None of the needed files have to be on the
hard drive. It is a small app with powerful viewer
abilities and with its ability to modify and convert
images, it is "ready to go!"
I suggest that seek it out!

Portable Time Sync with Proxy / Firewall setting / recognition

Submitted by ReneL on January 6, 2006 - 10:38am


it would be nice to synchronize the clock on every computer.
The Windows time service is scriptable, but it does not work with proxies or firewalls blocking port 123.

So is there a small time sync utility without installation with proxy / firewall settings or even recognition?
With (updateable) Time Server list for different countries?
And maybe useable from the command line?

Best regards,

Access Logger

I got a 128MB USB Memory Stick that I need for school. I'm wondering if there's a program available that will log the IP Address, time and date of every access of the device.

e.g. If anyone inserted it into a PC, it would automatically send me an e-mail with the IP Address of the computer and the time and date that it was accessed.

Thanks for reading

any Spreadsheet ideas?

Submitted by justin on January 5, 2006 - 7:45pm

I have wrote extensively about Spread32, but it doesn't work with Excel, so I am putting out a call for someone to either find or create a spreadsheet with Excel read/write and some functionality. It shouldn't be bloated with stuff I don't need, it should be lean. Other people have requested this, so I think that there is really a genuine interest in this. Reply with ideas.

it would be nice to be able to install java (among other plugins i'm sure)
as to avoid having to install java on any computer that didn't already have it
this might be the wrong place to post this, maybe i should tell Sun and hope
for a java extension. anyway just a thought.

Portable Spreadsheet App

1 suggestion though:

It would be nice to have a portable spreadsheet application compatible with Excel (like Portable AbiWord is compatible with Word).

Portable is Great, just a bit too big to be really portable.
