A new website name – Ramen Software

The website just got a new, proper name – Ramen Software, and a new address – ramensoftware.com.

The rammichael.com domain was registered on April 2007, picked after my nickname which I came up with a year or two earlier – RaMMicHaeL. The nickname came to mind as a combination of a band name I liked back then and my personal name, all in mixed case which I found to be cool.

The website’s home page presented a collection of small utilities I made in my free time, and there was also a forum for discussing these utilities and other random topics. The website’s name was simply RaMMicHaeL’s home page. Some historical snapshots can be found on the Wayback Machine:

And I was even able to find a local copy of one of the earliest versions of the website’s home page.

In June 2010, I moved the website to WordPress. Here’s a snapshot from July 2010. You can see that aside from new content, the website has been mostly unchanged since then.

Today, the website gets a new name and a new address. In addition, there’s a new home page which lists the available software, just like in the old days. All the rest stays the same – the website is still about my software and I, Michael, am still its sole owner.

We’ll see what the future brings, but for now, I hope the new name will be easier to type, remember, and reason about for new visitors.

P.S. Why ramen? Well, ramen is a great dish, and I also got to keep the first three letters of the old name.

    Kudos on the name change!
    Keep up the great work with the Taskbar tweaker- it’s a must have for my Windows machine(s). Hopefully this resumes/continues with Windows 11…

    Love the new web URL, Michael. Here’s to hoping some form of 11+ Taskbar Tweaker is born someday …

    Love your work, couldn’t live without 7TT and Textify

    If you ever need to release a new version of Textify perhaps you could include a copy button.

    • I’m glad that you like my tools 🙂

      If you ever need to release a new version of Textify perhaps you could include a copy button.

      I’ll consider it for the next versions. For now, you can enable automatic selection copying in the config window (auto_copy_selection=1 under config).

    • In fact, you can create a copy button already by using winapiexec, as following:

      [web_button_1]
      name=Copy
      command=""C:\winapiexec.exe" lstrcpyW ( GlobalLock ( GlobalAlloc 0x0042 8192 ) ) "$u:%cs" , GlobalUnlock $$:5 , u@OpenClipboard 0 , u@SetClipboardData 13 $$:5 , u@CloseClipboard"
      icon=icons\your_icon.ico
      

      Replace the number in web_button_1 with the correct number for your configuration. Replace C:\winapiexec.exe with your path of winapiexec. Replace icons\your_icon.ico with your icon path.

    Hi Michael,

    virustotal.com sometimes gives an unexpected result for winapiexec.exe and winapiexec64.exe.
    Can you please say something about this. Thank you!

    Regards,
    Karl

    Hi Michael,

    Thank you for your prompt reply!

    I didn’t expect any other answer anyway, just didn’t know due to a query in the Total Commander forum (German),
    how best to answer it: https://ghisler.ch/board/viewtopic.php?p=408206#p408206.

    Thanks again!
