Filehand Search

Filehand™ Search 3.0 brings the power of internet-style searching to your personal computer. Using Filehand Search you can find information stored in your computer system with the same ease and speed that you find information on the internet using search engine sites such as Google and Yahoo.

If you have tried other programs to find files on your computer, you were probably disappointed by the performance, lack of flexibility, and complicated interfaces. Even worse, other search tools can consume all of the processor and memory resources of your computer.

Filehand Search is designed from the ground up to respect the fact that you have other uses for your computer. It uses a modest amount of memory and runs at the lowest available priority. Yet Filehand Search typically handles search requests in a fraction of a second.

If you know how to search for information on the internet through web sites such as Google or Yahoo, you already know how to use Filehand Search. If you haven't used such web sites, don't worry. Even though its powerful, Filehand Search is very easy to use.

Eraser (Free secure data erase tool)

Eraser is an advanced security tool (for Windows), which allows you to completely remove sensitive data from your hard drive by overwriting it several times with carefully selected patterns. Works with Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP, Windows 2003 Server and DOS.
Eraser is Free software and its source code is released under GNU General Public License.

Most people have some data that they would rather not share with others - passwords, personal information, classified documents from work, financial records, self-written poems, the list can be continued forever.

Perhaps you have saved some of this information on your computer where it is conveniently at your reach, but when the time comes to remove the data from your hard disk, things get a bit more complicated and maintaining your privacy is not as simple as it may have seemed at first.

Your first thought may be that when you 'delete' the file, the data is gone. Not quite, when you delete a file, the operating system does not really remove the file from the disk; it only removes the reference of the file from the file system table. The file remains on the disk until another file is created over it, and even after that, it might be possible to recover data by studying the magnetic fields on the disk platter surface.

Before the file is overwritten, anyone can easily retrieve it with a disk maintenance or an undelete utility.

There are several problems in secure file removal, mostly caused by the use of write cache, construction of the hard disk and the use of data encoding. These problems have been taken into consideration when Eraser was designed, and because of this intuitive design and a simple user interface, you can safely and easily erase private data from your hard drive.

FSUM 2.52

A fast and handy command line utility for file integrity verification. It offers a choice of 13 of the most popular hash and checksum functions for file message digest and checksum calculation.

Major Features:

  • Possibility to calculate a file message digest and/or a checksum using any of the 12 well-known and documented hash and checksum algorithms: MD2, MD4, MD5, SHA-1, SHA-2( 256, 384, 512), RIPEMD-160, PANAMA, TIGER, ADLER32, CRC32;

  • Support of a custom hash algorithm (MD4-based) used in eDonkey and eMule applications;

  • Possibility to act recursively. FSUM can operate not only on files from a specific directory, but also on files from all subdirectories of the specified directory;

  • Work with large size files. (Tested on file sizes of up to 15 GB);

  • Full compatibility with md5sum utility;

  • Full .MD5 and .SFV file formats support;

  • Automatic recognition of checksum file format (.MD5 or .SFV) while checking;

  • Generates/verifies hashes/checksums for files of any type: music, audio, sound, video, image, icon, text, compression, etc., with the extensions: .mp3, .wav, .avi, .mpg, .midi, .mov, .dvd, .ram, .zip, .rar, .ico, .gif, .pif, .pic, .tif, .tiff, .txt, .doc, .pdf, .wps, .dat, .dll, .hex, .bin, .iso, .cpp, .dss, .par, .pps, .cue, .ram, .md5, .sfv, etc.


The most common use for FSUM is checking data files for corruption. A message digest or checksum calculation might be performed on data before transferring it from one location to another. Making the same calculation after the transfer and comparing the before and after results, you can determine if the received data is corrupted or not. If the results match, then the received data is likely accurate.

ABYSS - Free web server

What is it?
ABYSS aims to be a fully HTTP/1.1 compliant web server. Its main design goals are speed, low resource usage and portability. ABYSS works on most UNIX based systems and on Win32 systems (Win95/98/2000/NT).

Why bother writing another HTTP server?
HTTP servers used nowadays are too complex and/or system dependant. This can be explained by two facts:

* They are based on old software (CERN httpd or NCSA httpd) which was written in the beginning of the 90's with no portability or modularity in mind.
* They are getting bigger from version to version as they need to support evolution of standards.

Started as a personal challenge, ABYSS project tries to avoid the mistakes found in the design of other servers. ABYSS characteristics/features are:

* Built from scratch
* Modular
* Customizable: you can build a version which includes only the features you need.
* Highly portable: it is written in ANSI C.
* Low memory use.
* Low system load.
* Tiny: on Linux, the executable size is about 35kB.
* Fast: On stable developement releases, it is 70% as fast as Apache. When using threads, this rate is 130%.
