NetConnectChoose
Easily set your default internet connection

When you have multiple internet connections available on the same PC then it's not always clear which one Windows will choose. But if you'd prefer one connection to be used above the rest, then NetConnectChoose will help you set this as the default (and it'll give you lots of other useful connection-related details, too).

This is all very straightforward to use. There's no installation, just run NetConnectChoose to view your current network setup. Select your preferred connection, click File > Set as Default, and you're done - Windows should now choose that connection whenever you want to go online.

If life is a little more complicated, and you need to change the connection occasionally, click Options > Put Icon on Tray and close the main NetConnectChoose window. Right-clicking the program's system tray displays an option to switch the default connection, or you can open the main program window to take more precise control.

While this can be very useful in some situations, many people will never have to switch connection priorities at all. But even then NetConnectChoose can have some value, because of the details it provides about each connection.

Browse the table and you'll find your network adaptor's MAC address, for instance. The length of time the connection has been running. Its current send and receive data speeds; the number of bytes and packets sent and received; your IP address, default gateway, name servers and DHCP server; your MTU setting, interface speed and more.

Version 1.07:
    - Fixed bug: NetConnectChoose failed to remember the last size/position of the main window if it was not located in the primary monitor.

Verdict:

If you ever need to reset your default internet connection then NetConnectChoose makes it easy. And even if you don't, the sheer volume of connection stats mean it's still a useful portable troubleshooting tool

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
