In addition to the other tools we work on, we have made a few smaller tools that you may find useful. This project page is a single place for all of those smaller tools. Simple tools to do simple jobs, things that made our lives easier and hopefully will make someone else's day easier as well.

MRecent Console

This is a GUI program to assist and augment the use of the bmail command line SMTP mail utility for emailing log files.

bmail is a command line SMTP mailer for batch jobs. It works great for sending a log file to the email address of your choice. But Microsoft's Backup utility likes to cycle between ten filenames (backup01.log to backup10.log). So if you backup 5 days a week it will keep 2 weeks worth of info. You'd have to configure 10 scheduled tasks to send the appropriate file for the appropriate day. That is unacceptable.

What do you do? That is where this program comes in. MRecent will run bmail with the filename of the most recent file in the folder you tell it to look for log files in.

SQL Splitter

SQL Splitter splits large SQL files into multiple smaller ones that are easier to deal with. We created this primarily for personal use while analyzing open source software packages to see database structure. What this program does is it analyzes the file, then creates a folder and extracts all the SQL statements into one file per database table.

Note that this is a Console application, run from the command line. There is no nice graphical interface for this tool.

Also note that this was written to parse and split MySQL dumps, and may not work quite right on other database files.

Provides one web page that shows copies of all of the Facebook Like buttons on your site. Also shows aggregated links from Google +1 buttons, Twitter Tweet buttons, and Pinterest "Pin It" buttons. I wanted it on my site and was not able to find anything like it online. Therefore, here it is. Basically, it's nice to have one place for tracking all of these numbers. It's also rather funny to point people to it to solicit some free social media lovin'
