And it's finally here!!! NPS Hosts Manager is a light-weight Windows hosts file manager to help normal and advanced users alike quickly manage your hosts file. For those of you who don't know what the hosts file does; it redirects url names to an IP (DNS resolve). When you go to a website: E.g.: www dot google dot com, your DNS resolves the name to the actual numbered IP E.g: 192 168 56 45 or 2607 f8b0 4006 803 2004.

You can redirect a any url to any ip using the hosts file: E.g.: 127 0 0 1 www google com would redirect google back to your computer so you can't view it. For most, you don't want to block Google, but you may want to block things like porn sites or ads. There are tons of url lists to block ads and porn (separate and combined) for which you can add to your own lists.

My program will help you backup, replace, restore, edit, and change permissions of your hosts file.

Small new program release called "On The Fly DPI" !!!

ONFDPI allows you to quickly change the mouse sensitivity by using hotkeys and the mouse wheel. This is great for both gamer's and graphic designers alike as it gives you 'On-The-Fly' control over how quickly your mouse moves.

Re-post from my Facebook, didn't feel compelled to re-write as there's no new info:

Another new project (eventually) will be a title bar themer for the newer Quantum version of the Firefox browser. You can custom theme it already if you know CSS (web design styling) and it works great with contrasting Metro colors, but this really needs to be automated and so I am writing a program to do so.
It will have some pre-existing themes, but also, a way to manually enter color hex values for your own themes. This initially was needed to work with theming the 'Color Tabs' plugin for Firefox, but it will theme the title bar with/without the plugin. So it is essentially a standalone Firefox Quantum Title Bar Themer. There are other ways to style it, but that is more work.
I usually don't charge for my apps because there are countless great free alternatives out there to most of my programs, but this program is semi-unique and since it will be an app for both techs and users alike, it will be wanted by more people and I will set up a donation through Paypal or something. I know it's old, but it is still the most legit and trusted and Pledgie isn't around anymore and I'm not a fan of Kickstarter as that's not what I'm trying to do...

Edit:
If this grabs a bit of interest in users I will work on add them options like, possibly, adding images. Firefox already has theming options, but as I said this is made for plugins that can screw up theming for the title bar and also normal theming doesn't theme other parts of the bar as well as this will. Images will be a bit tricky as I need to experiment with which ways images expand in Firefox's layout.

I know I have lots of projects and they'll all get completed eventually, but I'll probably have this done first and possibly written in C++ (although AHK would work just fine).

Here's some screens of theming Metro colors in the Firefox Quantum web browser (notice the top title bar with tabs):
