Hamstersoft is a software company that makes several free softwares. I like their hamstersoft ebook converter. Its free and easy to use. You can download the software on their website.
However, their style is that when you download the software, you cannot download the full software, you only download a small downloader software which in turn downloads the full software and installs it. This is OK for first world users with lots of fast internet but its not OK for third world users with intermittent or slow internet. I prefer to have a backup of all my software accessible off the net so I can install it in say a reformatted PC without a net connection, and it does save on bandwidth. I cant do that if the installation program is in itself a downloader. I contacted hamstersoft and they more or less said that they wont do it. However I was able to get my hands on the full version installer.
Download the full installer here.
