Updater challenges

Recently it has come to my attention that the updater tool that is released with a few different HazteK Software applications, including StorURL, has been having problems trying to check for and download updates. This seems to stem from the fact that the .NET 2.0 framework that it is built on does not support the… Read More »

New Application: Countdown Max! & StorURL Updates

Today I’ve posted a new application called Countdown Max! It’s the next generation countdown application, which replaces the previous Countdown application available on the site.

There are online tools to do this, but the information I wanted to hash was sensitive, and I didn’t think it… Read More »

New Application: WinPosition

I have been using a tool called WinSpilt Revolution (WSR) for a while now, and it is a very useful tool. As of 2011 though, it was abandoned by its developers, and no new features were added. There is a spiritual successor available in MaxTo, but I prefer my software to be free (as in… Read More »

New Application: TrueIP Basic

In response to a user’s recent request for an application that would show the external IP address all the time, not just when the mouse hovered over the icon, I’ve released a new application called TrueIP Basic.
