Heres a link for ManicTime.  It was even updated just today.

Calculor is updated to version 1.9.  Links are in the first post.

TextWorx updated to version 1.4.  Lots of goodies here.  See the help file or online documentation.  Links are in the first post.

I do have Office365 Planner, which is their version of trello and looks similar.  It's a bit simplistic, though.  I don't want a subject board for each part of the magazine, and I don't want a hundred boards when I try to plan ahead for the next one.  Maybe a sharepoint list would work better.  Still, it seems complicated. 

I'm not sure what canned pork has to do with anything.

Wraith, - that Notion software looks interesting, but I don't want to purchase anything else, and don't want to fight with limitations.  Maybe I'll try and use a sharepoint group that comes with it's own lists and conversations or something.

Here are some links that compare Trello to MS Planner:

Every other month I publish a childrens' magazine - about 800 copies with 1200 readers.  I have several authours and illustrators, and I write and illustrate, too, but I'm having a hard time keeping track of what should be in future issues, who is doing what article, and what needs to be done.  I've tried doing it in all sorts of ways.

I also have access to full office365, but I'm not sure how to leverage that do do what I need.

Is there an open-source/freeware software that can help handle these things?  Anyone have any good ideas?

I'm not too interested in an entire CMS system.  Just a sign-up sheet system is all.  Kind of like those php BB forums, but for signup sheets.

General Software Discussion / Sign Up Sheets
« on: April 05, 2019, 10:50 AM »
We are looking for a way to create our own online signup sheets.

I am thinking about where folks could go to a web page and enter their name and email address, and be able to return later, perhaps, to remove or edit their entry.

There are all sorts of these things online, usually with subscription pricing.  But I could also run such a thing on my own webserver.

Anyone have an experience in this realm?

General Software Discussion / Re: Qucik Pop Menu for pasting text

Have you looked at PowerPro?  It's an amazing program, similar to AHK, but has it's own GUI system.  It can easily create for you popup menus that will paste snippets, and is fully customizable to do just about anything you want.

Or just use autohotkey's own hottext command

If you have autohotkey installed, put this in a text file called "myautotexts.ahk" and run it.
Then, whenever you type "teh" it will get replaced with "the".
If you type "waz" then it will be automatically replaced with "Whaaaaazzzzzuuuupppppp!!!?????"
(in fact, even as I typed those just now they were getting replaced; I had to go correct them above)

My most favourite of all is using "etest".

::etest::THIS IS A TEST OF THE EMERGENCY BROADCAST SYSTEM.`rREPEAT: THIS IS ONLY A TEST.`rIf this had been an actual emergency, the Attention Signal you just heard would have been followed by official information, news or instructions.
::/cs::/msg chanserv

I use TreeDBNotes.  It, too, is sort of like a wiki system, but I like to think of it as a big electric notebook.  It's easier and more intuitive to use than OneNote.

You create custom tabs, and each tab has a tree full of notes that can contain text, richtext, images, hyperlinks, attachments, etc.
I even stopped using my browser to store links.  I just write notes in it and put the hyperlinks into the text just like you would on a forum.

So, I have tabs for all my network administration work, games, stories, even tidbits of information - anything and everything.  You can even have multiple TreeDB documents.  It's quite nice, but the developer hasn't done anything new in several years (despite my persistent emails which get no response).

I also use it to write stories, organizing the tree by chapters and sections. 

The great thing about the trees are that you can see every note/topic all the time.  Custom styles make it easy to apply the same styles over and over.  You can create note templates, use custom icons in the tree, capture clipboard, export to epub, even create an exe file out of a tree.  It's kind of like a really souped up version of KeyNote.

The free version does everything you want, and is quite stable; you only need to buy it if you want to use it for passwords, contacts, tasks and calendars and things (which aren't so nice, anyway).

General Software Discussion / Re: youtube downloader?
« on: March 29, 2019, 02:00 PM »
I have been using the 3D Youtube Downloader -
I really like this application.  If you just want audio, you can download the yt mp4 and it will convert it automatically.

There is no regular GUI when you run it.  Push win+k to summon the menu.  Take a look at the help file.

I'll think about the Trim N Characters and see what I can see.

For the Add N Characters, you can use "Surround" and just don't put anything for the front side.  Hold ctrl when you accept the dialogue to work on the lines.

I am thinking of adding a submenu for markdown.  Someone else mentioned that, too, and so maybe it can be useful in webpages.  I'd probably use it, too.

Mr. Maniac,

Oh yes, you can do anything you want with the menu. 
In the docs, just overwrite the mainmenu key in the [menu] section.
It looks like this:

If my docs were clear enough, you would understand to copy the expansion (it's in the Menu page in the docs) and then customize it to yoyour liking.

....except, that those two items are hard-coded...  (I add them statically; never imagined that anyone would want to remove them)
Okay, Ill fix that in the next version.

Hi, Mr. Maniac,

Favourite Date Format..  uh, hmmmmm.   uh.  Well, you know... uh,  actually, I don't know. 

There is an ini key for it favouritedateformat and I'm pretty sure you just put whatever date format you want.  Examples are:  yyyy-MMM-dd  and  MMMM, d, yyyy and hh:mm:ss  things like that.  It basically just uses the autohotkey date format settings.  I'll update the documentation with the next version. 

So, you would add your date format to the [preferences] section in the textworx.ini file and then restart TextWorx.

Thanks for pointing that out!  Oh - and thanks for the donation credits.

If someone ever finds an answer to this, so should let me know so I can stop suffering.  I've been searching for this fountain of sanity for years... 

I have a problem with my computer, even after a new hard drive "Reach" install of Windows 10, so a fresh Windows 10 install is being used. The problem is that my computer will, at seemingly random points in time during the night, reactivate my screen, after it has powered down.

Maybe look to see if you have your network NIC set to wake up?

Other than that, I believe this is probably some software issue or system setting.

Who uses log anyway?
Yule find out one day...    ;)

...and you'll get fired up!
You guys can stick those puns somewhere.

Ha!  Calculor found its way onto MajorGeeks today!  I receive the rss feed for their site, and I saw it appear there.  Amazing how things get around, eh?

I used to use Quicknote - and I've tried several others, but now I use QText.  It is basically the same, a tiny, tabbed notebook for jotting down notes which you summon via a global hotkey.
But here are some features of QText that I like in particular:
  • hyperlinks generated as you type
  • callto links generated as you type - this make it soooooo easy and fast to add clickable phone numbers (that I use with PhonerLite and my FreePBX system)
  • bulleted and numbered lists
  • some basic richtext formatting
  • text area has some advanced text editing functions
  • super fast

TextWorx is updated to version 1.3!

Ath - I've added your base64 encode string function.
Also, the other casing effects are added.

haha - thanks, Dormouse.  Funny, the discussion wasn't really about TextWorx, though!

nogojoe,  TextWorx doesn't use the hotkey ctrl+s unless you set in manually in TextWorx's config.  Some programs cannot use a global hotkey if another program is already using it.  But other programs (TextWorx, included, I believe) will take over (hijack) that global hotkey if it is executed *after* a previous program is executed.  So, if you want TextWorx to take over ctrl+S (which I don't recommend, since many programs use it to save their work) then you'd have to set that hotkey in Textworx's config file (directions in the help file), then restart TextWorx.

However, in Windows, you can also assign a global hotkey to an application creating a shortcut to the program, and then in the shortcut's properties, by setting a "shortcut key".  I once had an issue with a program where the developer created this shortcut in startup with a shortcut key set.  It took me ages to find it.

In the end, I don't see how your issue with ctrl+s is related to TextWorx.

My program does not invoke any stopwatch application.  Textworx has a command to invoke charmap and notepad, but not stopwatch.
