It has been a highly frustrating week for me: I just got my results from my previous exam, and it totally knocked down the house of cards (my grades) that I built up with difficulty. My undergraduate thesis also isn’t going too well.
More importantly, however, I have once again become immersed in download managers. I thought I outgrew this phase, but nostalgia simply jumped upon me, and here I am once more. I’m especially enamored with NetPumper v. 1.0 with Banner Killer, though (and the ad-supported version at that). If one asked me, I myself don’t know why, just that I currently am. I have been disappointed with Download Accelerator Plus of late, however, so I uninstalled it. In most cases, it simply didn’t function the way that I wanted it to. (Since I’m a fickle man, however, I may reinstall it in the future.) While I’m fickle and quite easily swayed (especially during these stressful times) I decided to keep two download managers. I kept the old version of NetPumper simply because of nostalgia, but I tried searching for more capable download managers and I found DownThemAll for Firefox. It performed very well during my first try (unlike the picky behavior of DAP), so for the time being I’m keeping it as my regular download manager.
I uninstalled NetPumper Pro because I didn’t want to have two download managers that performed the same function at the same time (DAP had several more advanced features than NetPumper Pro because its development was not halted). I’m thinking about reinstalling it; if DownThemAll continues to perform excellently, however, I’ll find no reason to do that.
I made three drafts regarding this matter and was even highly hesitant posting about it, since it’s not about anime at all. Nevertheless, I thought I’d allow myself some respite from all the bullshit that’s going on around me. So here I go.
P.S. The NetPumper v. 1.0 with Banner Killer contains the installer of NetPumper v. 1.0 and its accompanying Banner Killer. I installed it on my computer, and there aren’t really any advertisements to an obsolete product any longer. However, it’s still better to have an anti-virus guard. Feel free to delete all DLLs except the IEProxy DLL.
P.P.S. I will get back to writing about anime: I’m just waiting for Toradora to come out, since I just simply know it’s going to be a saucy episode.
