Chocolatey Software | NirLauncher

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/12/27

The cool thing about the Chocolatey NirLauncher install, is that it not just installs the launcher in the path, but all the NirSoft tools.

I wanted it in the path initially because I needed InsideClipboard to do some investigation (I wrote a similar tool ages ago, but could not readily find the source or executable, but InsideClipboard is better anyway).

This is cool, as I now can start any of the NirSoft tools from the cmd prompt, including [WayBack] NirLauncher itself, [WayBack] InsideClipboard and [WayBack] NirCmd (so I can now set the sound volume to 25% by running nircmd setsysvolume 16000)

To install:

choco install --yes NirLauncher

An older WayBack link notes a few important issues about anti-virus tools:

Cleaning up your Twitter timeline: run odd tweets through BotOMeter

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/12/27

To help my Twitter timeline clean I run odd messages through: [WayBack] Botometer® by OSoMe:

Botometer® (formerly BotOrNot) checks the activity of Twitter accounts and gives them a score based on how likely they are to be bots. Higher scores are more bot-like. Brought to you by the Observatory on Social Media (OSoMe) at Indiana University.

Next to just analysing one account, it can also analyse the followers of friends of an account.

Note that you need to give Twitter Permissions to BotOMeter, which you can easily revoke from their site as well, see [WayBack] FAQ: Botometer® by OSoMe.

Next to be more versatile, I also found BotOMeter to be more precise than [WayBack] Bot Sentinel Dashboard ‹ Bot Sentinel:

Bot Sentinel is a free platform developed to automatically detect political trollbots and untrustworthy accounts. Bot Sentinel utilizes machine learning and artificial intelligence to identify and track disruptive Twitter users.

Quite a few are now on the mule or block list.

Note that both work better with English than with non-English language, but even with non-English, both are quite good.

A review is on [WayBack] A Review of Popular Bot Checkers – Unhack The Vote.
