I may be compensated through the links in the posts below, but the opinions are my own. (Unless I’m talking about AutoHotkey in which case I only make money when you kindly buy my books—hopefully at ComputorEdge E-Books. The opinions are still my own.)

May 19, 2017—Repurposing ComputorEdge Software Showcase
Progress in life requires both the setting of priorities and persistence. When I started this blog, it represented an experiment in reviewing free and/or demo software (and possibly generating revenue). However, I’ve always known that success in anything requires focus. Soon, I found that I had stretched myself too thin and needed to make a decision about my time. I rededicated my efforts toward my first love—AutoHotkey.
Ever since this site has languished as I deliberately neglected the completion of new software reviews. I even considered letting this site lapse this August in favor of my AutoHotkey endeavors. However, I’ve recently decided to repurpose ComputorEdge Software Showcase to specialized in highlighting third-party AutoHotkey applications. This came from an evolution in my thought.
Not long ago, I started putting together my next AutoHotkey book—which looks like my biggest one yet. As a motley assortment of AutoHotkey tips, it includes many of my current blogs at Jack’s AutoHotkey Blog, as well as, a multitude of tips no longer available on the Web (since I took down the ComputorEdge Magazine server). Among those previously (yet no longer available) AutoHotkey articles appear reviews of useful and interesting AutoHotkey scripts written by people who are much better programmers than me. In fact, many of them have produced AutoHotkey apps which rate up there with any other commercial software—but their software is free for anyone to use. I’ve decided to refocus this blog on those AutoHotkey scripts and applications.
In the coming months, I plan to present what I consider among the best of those AutoHotkey apps. Some of them I use regularly and have discussed in my other blog (Jack’s AutoHotkey Blog) and my books. A few appear in the ComputorEdge “Free AutoHotkey Scripts and Apps for Learning Script Writing and Generating Ideas” page—although most of the scripts on that page I wrote myself. Others harken back to past, no-longer-published articles from the old ComputorEdge Magazine. By my including them in ComputorEdge Software Showcase, you should find it easier uncover those scripts I rate as the most interesting and/or useful available for free use. I plan to continue my search for the best of AutoHotkey apps and review those scripts right here.
