Feel Free to Make use of our Free Web Tools…
Getting fiddly things done like creating favicon icons, sending bulk emails or simply checking bandwidth usage can be a nuisance, yet really very easy and useful.
That’s why we’ve developed some simple tools for ourselves to take away the hassle and which we are happy to share with you. Just download the zip file for the tools you are interested in and enjoy the demise of nuisance problems.
Simple Mail (Bulk Email Sender)
SimpleMail allows you to send bulk emails, extracting the addresses from an Access database. It can send the same email to many adresses (in the ‘To’ or ‘BCC’ fields), in which case it allows you to break them up into batches to overcome the limit on number of addresses imposed by many SMTP servers. It can also send personalised emails based on other fields in the database.
IconCreator allows you to combine image files into an icon (.ico) file for use as an application icon or as a favicon for a website. Including 16*16, 32*32 and 48*48 pixel images allows your icon to look good on the desktop as well as in the top left of the window. It can also create cursor (.cur) files.
BandwidthMonitor is a very simple program which gives you a real-time reading of your current bandwidth usage. It also logs bandwidth usage while it is running.
ImageCollator is a very simple program which allows you to select and print a collection of images. Each image is centred on its own page and if necessary is scaled (preserving aspect ratio) to fit exactly on the page, the page size being determined by the printer settings you have selected. If you have a PDF writer installed, it is especially useful for quickly combining multiple images into a single PDF file by printing to PDF.
SimpleFtp is a very basic FTP client with a friendly user interface. It will save the settings of your last FTP connection.
New Tools and Tool Requests
Newly developed tools will be added here in future when we find some more troublesome problems that need fixing.
Tool requests are welcome as long as they’re not too complicated for us to make! Just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll see if we can make it available for you.
