Firewall Button for LAN Gaming

Quick and easy tool to enable and disable the Windows 10 firewall. This is ideal for playing LAN games such as Minecraft which use changing port numbers.  It’s also useful for other LAN games so that in-depth troubleshooting is not required prior to having fun. Simply open the program and enable or disable the firewall.  Remember to Enable the firewall once more when done playing the game.  This is a great tool for children playing LAN games with changing ports.

Nag Screens Removed 1.0.0.54

Meal Plan Grocery List now has no Nag Screens.  It is fully functional.  This may change in the future with an update, but not at the present time.  More recipes are on their way into the app.    This will allow complete testing of the software.

· Updated Release Notes menu item to an updated URL.

Updated Installer for 1.0.0.53

The installer has been updated for a smaller download.  It will now always pull the latest installation files from the website.
https://www.robertknight.io/meal-plan-and-grocery-list-1-0-0-53/ contains the download file.

Meal Plan and Grocery List 1.0.0.51

New ability: Scroll through recipes alphabetically

image

Until now, click the circular recipe button would list recipes in a non-alphabetical order.  Now clicking the green button will scroll through recipes in alphabetical order.  The Circle button still reloads correctly.  The circle buttons select within the meatless/no-dairy criteria, while the green scroll button scrolls through all recipes in alphabetical order.

Better Update Browser 1.1.1.2

After clicking “Scan” the software will appear to hang for a long time.  This is normal.  For future development, I hope to add a status indicator that shows what is going on.  For now, let it sit there hung until results appear in the list.  After some time, the list will populate.

Better Update Browser-portable portable application only, without update capability.

Better Update Browser shareware

Better Update Browser is now updates capable.

The first two releases of this application did not allow updates because the updates facility that I use does not allow administrator access.  To bypass this, there is now a peculiarity.  Install the application as normal.  Then open it, and then click the close button to exit the program.  Upon clicking the exit button, the application will ask you if you want to run it as administrator.  Click yes, to open the elevated permissions version.
