NoDoze Comments

I wrote this because everything else was crap

about NoDoze · ·

I wrote this application in 4 hours because all the other options were crap.

Of the others:

  • Some didn't work.
  • Some didn't support regular expressions or wildcards.
  • Some were bloated in size.

NoDoze is just one file. It writes its configuration to the registry and will remove all trace of itself in the registry if there are no search expressions. The method to keep the computer from running the screensaver doesn't make the mouse jiggle.

[Edited by eyal0, August 04] I changed it to a comment on advice.

i really appreciate your app but why are you reviewing your own app? you should have posted this as "comment" and not "review"

I changed it from review to comment.
