Savoir son Age Précis (Precise Age Calculator)
Do you know how old are you in months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, seconds and milliseconds?
A utility which allows you to convert an age (like yours, for example!) in months, weeks, days, seconds, minutes, seconds and even milliseconds. It's very easy to use, you only have to select an age (between 1 and 130) to directly view the conversion. An extended module can also calculate this but by starting with a birth date and hour, and using the PC's internal calendar, hence offering precise conversions in real time! It is possible to export the results into a text file. More details...
Create auto-running CD interfaces with ease
The first utility I've developed in Delphi, which will enable you to create AutoRun.inf files for your CDs. These files allow you to run an application as soon as the CD is inserted in the drive, can identify the disk using a particular icon, or even customize its contextual menu using your own commands. It's easy to use, bundled with documentation in HLP and HTML formats, 570 icons, and two sample applications (with their source code in Delphi 5) which could be useful to help you creating launch interfaces for your CDs.

Of course, the software can restore the original settings in case of problems, or when the launched application is being closed. ResChanger comes with its sourcecode in Delphi 5, so that you can modify it to suit your application's needs. More details...
