Bulk Rename Utility is an easy to use file rename program (a.k.a. file renamer). Renaming multiple files has never been easier! It has a small memory footprint so it can be left running all the time without consuming all your memory. It started as a freeware Visual Basic tool, but as its popularity has grown it has been completely rewritten in C++ to be robust and lightweight – and very, very fast! It can easily handle folders/discs containing well over 100,000 entries… and it can batch rename 1,000s of files in seconds.

Word Art by Wordle

By on September 27, 2009

wrdle-bigWordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.

You may create the word clouds by copy and paste your bunch of text in the the text area, enter the url of your blog, blog feed or any other web page that has an Atom or RSS feed. After you get your word clouds, you may edit it by changing the font size, font type, font color, layout, or remove certain language from the wordcloud.

Currently Worlde supported most of the language but not Chinese and Japanese, base on the author, this is because they cannot reconize the word split for this 2 languages.

For more question, you may refer to the Wordle FAQ page.
