Personal Blocklist (by Google) – Chrome Web Store

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/02/18

The new Personal Blocklist extension for Google Chrome allows you to block certain patterns from the Google search results.

Ideal for those “link aggregation” sites that Google itself does not block yet.

The input from this tool will be used to improve the Google Search results for others tool.

The personal blocklist extension will transmit to Google the patterns that you choose to block. When you choose to block or unblock a pattern, the extension will also transmit to Google the URL of the web page on which the blocked or unblocked search results are displayed. You agree that Google may freely use this information to improve our products and services.

ClipName from the PC TimeWatch people – Freeware

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/02/18

Every once in a while I need to copy a bunch of filenames to the clipboard.
This is where the freeware tool [WayBackClipName comes in action: it can copy them in various formats (and works much better than the similar [WayBackClipPath, which can only copy them as CSV)

Quote from the ClipName page:

ClipName is also a Context Menu extension copying the full pathname of the right-clicked file to the clipboard. This new version supports copy of multiple filenames either as a space separated list or as a CRLF separated list. DOS filenames (8.3) can now also be copied as well as the URL encoded name and the UNC name for remote files. Clipname supports a Copy command for filenames without including any path, URL Encoding for multiple selections and style encoding for Microsoft Word, Microsoft OneNote,… A version running under Windows Vista 64-bit is now available. It also allows to copy the UNC name for local files and folders. Version 1.3 adds the capability of copying the target URL for Internet Shortcuts from Windows Explorer and from within the IE Favorites bar.

It comes both in 32-bit x86, and in x64 versions.
