BLAT Windows Command Line SMTP Mailer

January 23, 2015

Blat is a Public Domain Win32 console utility that sends the contents of a file in an e-mail message using the SMTP protocol. Blat is useful for creating scripts where mail has to be sent automatically. To use Blat you must have access to a SMTP server via TCP-IP. Blat can store various default settings in the registry. The command line options override the registry settings. Input from the console (STDIN) can be used instead of a disk file (if the special filename ‘-‘ is specified). Blat can also “carbon copy” and “blind carbon copy” the message. Impersonation can be done with the -i flag which puts the value specified in the “From:” line, however when this is done the real senders address is stamped in the “Reply-To:” and “Sender:” lines. This feature can be useful when using the program to send messages from users that are not registered on the SMTP host. Optionally, Blat can also attach multiple files to your message.



Random Password Generator

January 16, 2015

This form allows you to generate random passwords. The randomness comes from atmospheric noise, which for many purposes is better than the pseudo-random number algorithms typically used in computer programs.

The passwords generated by this form are transmitted to your browser securely (via SSL) and are not stored on the RANDOM.ORG server. Nevertheless, the best data security practice is not to let anyone but yourself generate your most important passwords. So, feel free to use these passwords for your wi-fi encryption or for that extra Gmail account, but you shouldn’t use any online service to generate passwords for highly sensitive things, such as your online bank account.

January 12, 2015

Password Safe allows you to manage your old passwords and to easily and quickly generate, store, organize, retrieve, and use complex new passwords, using password policies that you control. Once stored, your user names and passwords are just a few clicks away.

Using Password Safe you can organize your passwords using your own customizable references—for example, by user ID, category, web site, or location. You can choose to store all your passwords in a single encrypted master password list (an encrypted password database), or use multiple databases to further organize your passwords (work and home, for example). And with its intuitive interface you will be up and running in minutes.

The desktop version of Password Safe is freely available under an Open Source approved license. A Linux Beta version (available in source, or .deb packages for Debian or Ubuntu distributions) is also available. A disk-on-key version is available here.

Download Notepad++ 6.7.3

January 4, 2015

Notepad++ is a free (as in “free speech” and also as in “free beer”) source code editor and Notepad replacement that supports several languages. Running in the MS Windows environment, its use is governed by GPL License.

Based on the powerful editing component Scintilla, Notepad++ is written in C++ and uses pure Win32 API and STL which ensures a higher execution speed and smaller program size. By optimizing as many routines as possible without losing user friendliness, Notepad++ is trying to reduce the world carbon dioxide emissions. When using less CPU power, the PC can throttle down and reduce power consumption, resulting in a greener environment.


You’re encouraged to translate Notepad++ into your native language if there’s not already a translation present in the Binary Translations page.

I hope you enjoy Notepad++ as much as I enjoy coding it.
