NetworkConnectLog
Log everything that connects to your network

NetworkConnectLog is a tiny tool which repeatedly scans your network, recording the details of every computer and device as it's connected or disconnected.

The end results can be useful if you're curious about network usage, or perhaps are just wondering whether anyone else is making illicit use of your wireless network. Check the NetworkConnectLog table occasionally and you'll see a list of everything that's connected to or disconnected from your network, including its computer name, workgroup, MAC address, IP address, network adapter manufacturer and connect/ disconnect time.

As usual with NirSoft tools, this data can be saved as an HTML report for easy reference later.

Does it work? NirSoft says that smartphones won't always respond to ARP requests, and so may be incorrectly displayed as "disconnected". And we found that the program sometimes failed to recognise that devices had been disconnected, instead showing them as active. But in our tests it always recognised new devices as they were connected to the network, and that alone is enough to make it useful.

Version 1.11:

Updated the internal MAC addresses database.

Verdict:

A basic but convenient way to monitor devices on your network

Unreal Engine 4.15.1

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
