- Perfectly portable - A single self-contained executable file. That’s all. Easy to use with a pendrive, so you can carry your writing environment with you everywhere. Q10 will remember the last file you worked on, even if the drive letter assigned to your pendrive changes from computer to computer.
- Easy to use timer alarm - Perfect for timed writing sessions and word wars. When the time is over, it will tell you how many words you wrote in that period.

- Notes - Any paragraph starting with '..' is considered a note. You can get a list of all notes in the current document and jump instantly to any of them.

- Autosaving - You can ask Q10 to save your work after some number of new paragraphs, or after some time has elapsed. If you're really paranoid, set Q10 to save every paragraph.

Emunge is a very simple program designed to take a piece of text from the clipboard or entered into the program's left window pane and perform a series of regular expression search and replace operations, producing the output text in the other window pane.
The program was created primarily for the processing of spam emails that are intended to be sent to an ISP's abuse desk or to be published in some public forum, but it could be used for any number of other associated tasks. Whilst most ISP abuse departments can be trusted not to harvest or otherwise misuse any identifying items contained within the submitted email, some are not so trustworthy. In addition, if you wanted to post the spam sample in a newsgroup for example, you probably wouldn't want your email address or any other recognizable information showing. Hence, this program can be used to remove or 'munge' words in the email to prevent further leakage of personally identifiable data.

Textractor is a text monitor for Windows XP/2000/NT. It captures and logs all text a program writes to the screen. Some programs write information so fast that your eye can't read it.
