Battery Notification

After purchasing a UPS, I was surprised by the quality of the monitoring software that was available.

It was either too bloated, or looked so old that I didn’t want to install it. I still don’t understand why I need such a large program, to do such a basic task.

Due to this, I decided to create Battery Notification. It’s a simple open source program, less than 1mb in size, that (as of now) runs in the users session and monitors the computers power state. If it notices the power state change, it send you an email (which you can configure within the program) and writes to a local log file.

I wrote this mainly for myself, but while making it decided to ‘extend’ it a little and make it more universal.

The next goal is to create a Windows Service that can run in the background, but this will come in the future. Check back here, or on my github page for more.

RDP Settings

In the recent years I have been more and more reliant on using Remote Desktop for managing computers.

Windows helps RD users out by storing a history of 10 “Most Recently Used (MRU)” connections, and stores the username for any server that you have accessed in the past.

This is great, however, if you use Remote Desktop every day like I do, this list might get messy very fast.

I got frustrated in having to memorize where this data is stored in the Windows Registry, so I have made a small application that pulls this data from the registry, and allows you to edit it.

This application also allows you to edit the Port Number that RDP listens on (default is 3389).

I tested this on Windows 10 x64, but it should work on previous version of Windows.
If you notice any bugs, please contact me and let me know!
