Free Text Host

The Free Text Host website is a new project by Dagon Design. The site allows visitors to host text without having to sign up or give any personal information. One possible usage for this is to host code snippets, but it can be used for just about anything really. Options include the ability to enter a password to allow you to edit or delete your text, and the choice to use preformatted text and make links clickable. More »

CSS Color Replacement Tool

This tool allows you to extract the hex color codes from a remote CSS file, displaying both the hex codes and the colors themselves. You can then enter the new color codes you would like to replace them with. The script will then perform a global search and replace on the contents of the file, replacing each color with the code you specified, and displaying the updated CSS. The jscolor JavaScript Color Picker script has now been implemented to make choosing colors easier. More »

Color Select Tool

The Color Select Tool is a small utility that allows you to quickly copy the hex code of a color on your screen. I originally created this program because I was tired of having to take a screenshot and open photoshop just to capture a color, and I was not happy with similar programs. Simply run the program, move the mouse to the color you want to capture, and press the shift key. The hex color code will then be copied to your clipboard. You can also choose to have it add the # symbol in front of the code, and/or have it stay on top of other windows. More »

Favicon Generator

This free tool allows you to create a custom favicon for use on your website. Simply upload an image (JPG, PNG, or GIF – 100KB max) and it will automatically convert it to a standard 16×16 favicon. If you upload an image that is larger than 16×16 it will resize it for you, although for best results use an image that is already that size. Transparent favicons can also be created by uploading a transparent GIF. More »

BBCode to HTML Converter

This web-based utility converts BBCode to HTML. The most common use for a utility like this is to easily convert forum posts using BBCode to standard HTML for use in traditional web pages. This utility currently supports all of the BBCode tags used by phpBB and a list of these tags can be found below. Unlike some convertors, this will generate proper paragraph tags (instead of just using a lot of line breaks), and takes advantage of CSS declarations for font sizes, colors, and more (as opposed to their depreciated HTML tag counterparts). There are also several options available. More »

Windows XP and Vista Product Key Recovery

There are many programs available for extracting the product key from a Windows XP or Vista installation. The only problem is that they generally require the computer to be functional to run. These programs are useless if the operating system is corrupt and the computer will not boot into Windows. Fortunately, there are other options. This article explains how you can retrieve the product key with just the ntuser.dat file from the machine. More »
