SVG editor

This is in my toolkit for whenever I need to do anything with SVG files. For just converting them, I use GIMP.

It is meant for image creation and not editing. I've used this for several projects, like my Chinese flash cards.

DisplayFusion logo

A utility (primarily) for those with multiple monitors.

I got it to stretch my bottom bar across into the other screen, and it also has a feature to fix alt-tab so it only shows/includes the current desktop. Also of interest is putting a proper screensaver on alternate monitors.

It has a huge array of features. Of note is a configuration backup/restore feature, so I don't have to make any notes on it.

I'm using the for-pay standard version, and can't review the without-cost version. So while I can say I highly recommend this, I don't think it's really valuable to recommend something with a price tag.

Yet another MMO, but Japanese and built on a huge franchise and the smouldering remains of an abysmal failure.

I don't understand how this is popular. It has boring repetitive abilities, a confusing layout and a terrible map system.

  • Properly named Final Fantasy XIV
  • Technically I'm looking at Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn
  • aka ファイナルファンタジーXIV: 新生エオルゼア
  • aka Fainaru Fantajī Fōtīn: Shinsei Eoruzea

    • Apparently that's not a joke.
  • aka FF14, FFXIV

Brave is a web browser that uses components from Chrome to build a more security-conscious browser which also has an alternate advertising mechanism with revenue sharing.

Like Chrome, it's missing fundamental things.
