@dcwul62: If none of the other solutions pan out, I could probably add this functionality to my SFV Ninja program.

May be that data could be taken from soemwhere else?
From or such.

I don't think that site has an API to pull data from.  In any case, doing so would mean I'd have to make the sWeather window bigger to fit the sunrise/sunset data and I really do not want to do that.

Also.. The lack of a 2007 mug would give someone with OCD fits.
Perhaps we need to release a special edition 2007 mystery ghost mug..

 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

For newcomers that don't know what's going on with the elusive 2007 mug, start here and read on: http://www.donationc....msg145103#msg145103

Is it possible to sort a column of dates?

About the only sortable date format is yyyy-mm-dd or yyyy/mm/dd.

@dcwul62: Would you like me to mark this thread as solved or did you want to test a few of those programs and report back your findings first?

Added in the latest (v1.1.1) release.

All DC members, I am humbled by the consideration of such a generous gift.  Please accept my profound gratitude and deepest thanks.  I look forward to providing more Coding Snacks and applications in the future.   :)

Cool, thanks.  I'll keep this for reference should Yahoo! ever discontinue their API.

N.A.N.Y. 2014 / Re: NANY 2014 Release - epCheck
« on: May 03, 2018, 03:41 PM »
Thank you for the heads up.  I've been sort of dreading this because there have been talks for a long while about moving to an API v2 (but, so far, they haven't).  The problem is that I really don't have time right now to convert epCheck once they actually decide to deprecate the v1 API.   :(

Off the top of my head...

Why two columns in the Entries when we are in detailed view ? Is it possible to enter something in this second column ?

There is actually only one column.  You'll notice that the "second" column doesn't have a text header.

The times of the sunrises and sunsets are very great, it would be very nice, if they were here as well:

Unfortunately, that data isn't available in the data feeds that Yahoo! Weather provide.   :(

Best practice?  Pretend that it's all open, and don't do anything that you don't want anyone to see.

Exactly.  With the right equipment and setup, it's exceedingly easy to MitM attack an HTTPS stream.

Disclaimer: I'm a systems engineer with Fortinet, one of the world's largest cybersecurity hardware vendors.

However, we are allowed to use AutoIT!

You reference AutoIT here but AHK (AutoHotkey) in the subject.  Which (or both) is available to you?  They are not the same thing.

My question is, is it possible and easy for them to monitor, not the webpages visited (that's easy), but the text typed and submitted in webpages like dating websites and/or mobile apps, like Whisper, Chat apps, Dating apps, etc?

Absolutely, it is possible.  Whether they do, or care, is another question.

Are you guys all positive you're downloading the same file?  How about posting some checksums?

This could also easily be done with a standalone AutoHotkey script or an AutoHotkey script that integrates into CHS (as mouser suggested).

tomos - thanks - no - there was a post all in Russian earlier today.  It must have been spam, and Mouser must have deleted it.

Yes, it was spam, so I whacked it.   :D

Hi, H;o)lli, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.  Apologies for the lateness of this reply; my work/business travel has been rather busy lately.

- Would it be possible for you to make ChoppingList be aware of passing parameters?

Yes, this is doable.

One parameter would already be enough to make my day, namely passing over a list of file names (e.g. within the destination folder) like "filenamefirst.txt filenamesecond.txt". This way, it could be used by automated scripts.

The only caveat is that there is a finite amount of text that you can pass on the commandline like that so you will have experiment a bit and see what you can get away with.

- It would be fine also if not only .txt files were accepted but also e.g. .md or .rst files (markdown and reST files surely are text files!).

Yes, I can do this as well.  As you've already mentioned, the app will only be able to handle text-based files, i.e., no Word docs, etc.  I will try to get to this next week as I don't travel but, if I don't have anything by next weekend, feel free to remind me in this thread.  Cheers.

Just wondering what Skwire uses in addition to Auto Hotkey.

At a job, many moons ago, I wrote in C and Java.  However, all the applications on my website are all AutoHotkey-based.

If I have multiple windows of the same application there is no way to restore/bring to front all of them (ie. if you have a window on each monitor). It works great for single windows right now, however!!  :Thmbsup:

Hmmm...I should be able to make it do this as well.  However, I won't be able to get to this until later this week so, if I don't have something by next weekend, please feel free to remind me.

I'm back with my request to handle "multiple files in an instance" @skwire haha

I know you'll be disappointed but I won't be adding that capability to Trout.   :(

btw, the volume percent indicator in the trout status bar indicates the volume value if changed clicking and sliding but not if is sliding with the mouse wheel.

Good eye!  I'll fix it in the next release.

and finally, why not add translation support? :P

That sort of thing really should be factored in from the beginning of a project and I didn't so retro-fitting it now would be a lot of work that I do not have time, or much desire, for.  It's been ten years since I first started writing Trout and I've often thought about re-writing it from the ground up.  Where does the time go, eh?

It might be beneficial to newcomers and old-timers alike for the original post to be updated to include a link to the Trout website. :Thmbsup:
