Extract Now and The Font Thing

 I just wanted to share a little with you today about a couple of programs that I could not live without!

I am a freebie addict and as such, I download tons of freebies.  It can be a real chore just to unzip all those files but ExtractNow allows you to extract more than one archived file at a time, with one click of a button. It makes extracting files quicker and easier. ExtractNow supports ZIP, RAR, ACE, IMG, IMA, IMZ, ISO, and BIN, and archives.

 from  -
"The program should appeal to users who handle a high volume of archives, because all it does is extract archive contents. The four buttons--Settings, History, Clear, and Extract--lay out the basics. Click Settings and a window pops up to entice you with options. From the boilerplate specials like Always on Top or Start with Windows to more detailed customizations such as delineating a default extraction directory, setting file extensions to ignore, and adjusting post-extraction behavior, ExtractNow gives users as much flexibility as possible when it comes to batch archive extractions. You can, for instance, set it to delete archives after their files have been extracted."

And, I can not remember if I have already told you about The Font Thing...if I have, please excuse me for doing so once again but for Font-O-holics, such as I,  it bears repeating!

The Font Thing Publisher Description From Sue Fisher : "The Font Thing is a freeware program for managing TrueType fonts. With The Font Thing you can browse installed and uninstalled fonts,browse fonts in subfolders as a single combined list,view sample text and individual characters in your choice of colors, change sample text "on the fly" or easily switch between your own standard text samples, view detailed font information, print font samples, associate notes with fonts, install or uninstall any number of fonts at once, load (and unload) any number of fonts for temporary use, copy or delete any number of font files at once, rename font files to avoid file name conflicts, filter fonts according to their type, group fonts into collections for easier management, use multiple font windows simultaneously for easy font comparison and management."
