An Apache SVN client, right where you need it most
TortoiseSVN is a Subversion (SVN) client, implemented as a windows shell extension. Which means it's available right where you need it: in the Windows file explorer. It's intuitive and easy to use, since it doesn't require the Subversion command line client to run. Simply the coolest Interface to (Sub)Version Control! NOTE: The project has moved to osdn.net: https://osdn.net/projects/tortoisesvn/
Local Terminal Emulator
ConEmu-Maximus5 aims to be handy, comprehensive, fast and reliable terminal window where you may host any console application developed either for WinAPI (cmd, powershell, far) or Unix PTY (cygwin, msys, wsl bash). As Windows console window enhancement (local terminal emulator), it presents multiple consoles and simple GUI applications as one customizable tabbed GUI window with various features. Also, due to deep integration, ConEmu is the best companion for Far Manager, my favorite shell replacement. Disclaimer. ConEmu is not a shell, so it does not provide "shell features" like tab-completion, command history and others. But you can run any shell or remote access client of your choice in ConEmu! Try Clink for bash-style completion in cmd.exe and PSReadLine or PowerTab in powershell.exe. Or just run Bash from your favourite distro. Also, ConEmu does not provide remote access (SSH/Telnet/...) too, just use your remote client (ssh.exe, telnet.exe) instead.

This is a one-way sync program that will sync your Lotus Notes Calendar to your Google Calendar. No installation is required. Includes many options such as automatic syncing at specified intervals. Update (2015-01-30): With the switch to the new Google APIv3, .NET Framework 4.0 is required to be installed. *Update (Feb. 23, 2012): Unfortunately for current users and future downloaders, but quite fortunate for myself, my company has migrated from Lotus Notes to Exchange (they finally saw the light). As such, I no longer have a Lotus Notes environment to develop in. Moreover, I no longer have any personal need or desire to further the development of this tool. I am happy to hand the project and code to anyone that wishes to continue the development of the tool. I do not plan to make any updates/enhancements to the current version (1.7.2) so any current bugs will not be addressed by me.
