Microsoft SideShow 1.0.27 beta
This is the "unofficial" version of SideShow. The Developers description: "Sideshow is an awareness interface with the goal of helping people stay aware of large amounts of dynamic information without overloading or distracting them. It resides on a user's primary display and utilizes peripheral awareness. We've also built Sideshow to support easy polling of information and have explored some use of alerts... Sideshow is implemented as a sidebar. This sidebar, by default, is always present on one edge of the user's screen (much like the Windows taskbar). Users can also configure the sidebar to automatically hide itself or to allow itself to be covered by other windows. By default, the sidebar is 55 pixels wide. Inside the sidebar are several high-level summaries of important information in a user's world. We call these summaries "tickets"... If users want to find out more information about a ticket, they can hover their mouse over it and a "tooltip grande" appears. We chose the name "tooltip grande" because the window behaves like a tooltip (it appears when you mouse over a ticket and disappears when you move the mouse away), but these tooltips differ from standard tooltips in two ways. First, they're rather large (to provide lots of detailed information), and second, they're actionable: users can manipulate information inside the tooltip window or click to get even more detailed information. For example, in the tooltip for my mail inbox, I can open, forward, reply to, or delete any message..."
FreePortScanner is a small Windows application that allows users to scan specific ports on a given IP.
The foundation of this application is a very simple interface that needs absolutely no other information except for the port numbers and the IP the user wishes to scan.
While all the fields are located at the top of the main window, the rest of the window is being used by the results of the scan which include IP address, port name, number and status and description.
Description by the Software Developer:
"Gammu is a project, where all created applications, scripts and drivers are used for managing all possible functions in cellular phones and similiar devices. Currently Gammu provides stable and mature codebase for many models available in market and gives functions unavailable in many other similiar projects. Long and continuous developing is rather oriented for making shared API for this class of devices than for making support for single phone model (which won't be continued too long)."
