Updated links

I have updated my links with some of the projects that I maintain. They are mainly small, old projects that use GTK2. Some of them have disappeared completely from the web, so I suppose I just publish them so people can grab the source if needed.

The one I've just worked on recently is Xarchiver. I have fixed on the bugs that cause crashing when command line parameters are used, I've also updated the rar module to work with the new unrar 5.x.

"fd64 full install!"
I am so far happy with fatdog64 but no full hd install I think is something people could really use - I do see people asking for it and some posts on how to do it, but ... they are so complicated! There are certain niches for non-frugal installs (lower memory req. etc). So hopefully you will decide to give fd64 users a full install like other puppies have.
Thanks for making fatdog!

" RE: fd64 full install"
Hi Doug,

I'm glad you like it, & thank you for your feedback. There are ways to reduce Fatdog64's memory footprint (e.g. the use of small initrd, etc), as well as lifting "restriction" of a save file (by using save directory) - all of which will give almost all the benefit of a full-install while still keeping the benefit of a frugal install.

But yes, having a true full install would be nicer, even - Fatdog would make a nice lightweight host or guest OS, for example (among others). This however will take some validation effort as Fatdog64 is designed from the ground-up to be frugally installed (most of the components assume that the layering filesystem is always in effect). We'll keep the idea in mind - but no promises for now.
