Thanks Kirby, I'll look into why this is happening, and make sure the next version cleans them.

So probably the problem is too many results -- either running out of memory for the raw results, or the display of results, or the sorting/de-duping operation.
I have a few options -- ranging from the most proper (64bit build which can use more memory) to the most kludgey (limit number of results found on a given pass and make user do multiple passes), to various things in between.  Thinking on it.

HOWEVER, another solution is suggested by the fact that this regular expression pattern I provide by default is so imperfect and hits on many things that don't look like well-formed emails.  A better regular expression that had less bad hits would also solve the problem.  So for example if we limited the results to those with the most common extensions (.com, .org, etc...) you could probably eliminate most of the bad results and solve the problem of an overflow of results at the same time.

In fact, if extracting emails is the most common use for the app, I could actually hardcode some *proper* (non regular expression) email address validator code that could be an option, which would do that.  Then we could use a quick and dirty regular expression to find email address candidates, followed by a proper email address validator algorithm. I'll probably add that just for fun.

Congratulations, Jody  :Thmbsup:
Amazing work -- I know it must have been a huge pain to make such a large change.. Thank you for taking care of us sWeather users.  :up: :up: :up:

ps the problem is related to the number of results not the size of the input file (tested with 12 gb files)..

Yeah I can't see using them for anything but as redundant storage, when you were absolutely prepared to have them crash without loss of important data.

by adding a chromium browser as an alternative to using IE

That's a great addition  :Thmbsup:

WebsiteWatcher remains one of my favorite tools.

Will do.  I'll try to get a new version up tomorrow or this weekend.

I noticed when I last used it that it also seemed to be reporting an unusually high number of results, so it seems it's time for me to release an update.  I'll try to get one done in the next few days.

No excuse for it throwing that exception -- it sounds like I will be able to reproduce and solve it if I just use a big enough input file.  Standby.

ps. I think the default email regular expression I have in the program is not great -- it might be nice to find a better one.

LaunchBar Commander / Re: Saving file error

Hmm.. Can you try the portable version and see if that has the same problem -- it sure sounds like it has a permission problem saving the file to where it's trying to save it, though I'm not sure why it would.

Let me give it an update and see if I can reproduce the problem with a huge file.
Option to disable preview is a good idea..

Let me ask, can you see about how many results it found when it hit that error? It might give me a clue.

It would seem useful to have a pop up bubble or something when new and/or update processes happen and entries were added to the log.
agreed, will be added soon.

What you could do to help get things started is make the page in html/css that is as simple and clean html as you can, that shows what you want to show with the input etc where you want it. 
Then the coder can just modify it and add javascript to do what you are asking, without having to guess what you want the page to look like.

It's something that someone familiar with js or curious would be able to do in an hour as an exercise, the only issue is if we can find one of our js coders awake and here on the weekend to enjoy the puzzle of doing it.  I'll ask on our chat channel.

It's absolutely doable and fairly easy with javascript.

Can you elaborate on when you see that error, and what happens after you close it?

Find And Run Robot / Re: Open alias/group in notepad++
« on: January 09, 2019, 09:46 AM »

You can already send FARR a windows message (or is it commandline call) to make it RELOAD its aliases after you have changed them outside of FARR.. Let me look it up and tell you how to do that.. That prevents the need to exit and restart FARR.
So the process would simply be to edit the alias outside FARR, and then send FARR them command to make it reload its aliases from file.  No problem.

As far as the original request -- it would helpful to hear more about what is important to you to understand what is important and not-important.  For example, it would be trivial to add a button to the options tab where you are looking at an alias to tell it to open an alias in an external text editor.. but I can't tell if being able to quickly edit an alias file without having to go to options alias page is the part that's important to you..

ps. Very cool, Nod5! Looking forward to seeing an alpha.

Find And Run Robot / Re: >10 "Favs"?
« on: January 09, 2019, 09:42 AM »
You can change how many items are shown in the fave list and set it to more than 9 (see the Display Options tab).. but it only numbers the first 10 for quick keyboard launching..
The problem is that using letters for the items > 10 would be problematic since FARR wants to let you type letters to search..

Can you elaborate a little bit on what you have in mind, and the motivation for not wanting to use the built-in FARR alias editing facility in options?

If you want to donate to help NANY 2019 -- the best thing you could do is send a donation to some of the author's directly to support their work.
Short of that, any donation to the site will help pay for the $400+ dollars in mugs we will be sending out to participants..

If anyone spots any reviews or blog posts about NANY 2019 apps, please post a reply here.. Hopefully some will get some attention as they deserve..

I have 2 other fasting/eating apps that do not enforce strict schedules -- see if one of those is more to your liking:
