Curious if anyone else gets the following error when the 'background' reg is used, and attempting to create date-time folder:


This file does not have an app associated with it for performing this action. 

I've been trying to research it, but seem to arrive at dead ends.

getting the same message Win XP 3

Should be resolved now. Updated version is available from

Hi there, fellow coders !

I'm Yan, developer of "StackNotes".
It's a tiny, fast and reliable notebook for Windows.
Programming language is iBasic pro, entirely built upon system API and common controls

Hi Yan
Handy little program   The only problem I find I cannot directly paste from my clipboard program (I have tried two programs). You have to do a ctrl-v.  or right click-paste to enter data.
Other than that it seems quite handy and quick .

« on: February 12, 2018, 01:44 PM »

As a challenge to myself and in order to add the ability to move and size Note windows in addition to coloring and text size, I decided to write my own program. Similar to yours, only one note is displayed at a time related to the active window. I call it Relevant Notes and it stores all data into one INI file in the same directory. I know you are busy with real work so this was an opportunity for me to be creative.

The blog page for the program is Relevant Notes

Nice work there Mike have it working well on the computer .  any chance of doing something like this for an Ipad

been reading through your postings,  have got a few questions
 each altar how many masses are scheduled per day and at what times  (ie does one altar say has mass at every 45 mins for 4 times a day or is it normally 1 mass per chapel per day.)

2. roughly how many priests do have "on the books" to say mass    like wise how many altar servers are on call at any one time.  Are there set priests there everyday.

3. do you require the daily or weekly timesheets to be retained for posterity.

4 Do you have a Apple tablet (ipad). just looking at an app that I use that could forfil most of your needs.
It will still need a spreadsheet program to print off weekly or monthly assignments.

it has an ability to clone whatever you setup the app to suit your needs both with data and without data but the format is retained as you have set it up. (To send to other people)

It uses a dropdown  menu for you to select what item you require from pre entered list. and has the ability to allow mutiple choices  say 2 or three altarservers or priests  no problem at all.

It has an infinite date entry .  you can configure a year ahead if you want to.

It can be configured to what your reqirements are.   

5     I realise that you are keen to share with others a web program and I am no coder and simply dont know how much is involved to produce a web program to suit your needs.

Drawback    its an Apple Ipad app.

Hi Brother ,I am happy to donate NZ$100.00 towards a coder to help  produce an app to suit exactly what you want.
There are some pretty skilled coders Skwire etc  that should implement what you want.


Hi. Just came across this program. It may help you


@orbis: Uploaded a new version with corrected timing.

@nogojoe: I'm sorry, but I can't replicate your problem.

Thanks Skommel there must be some issue with my computer.


Hi Skommel,
did some fiddling around and got it to go  :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:

A thing of beauty and a joy forever    :-* :-*

Regards Nogojoe

@orbis: Uploaded a new version with corrected timing.

@nogojoe: I'm sorry, but I can't replicate your problem.

Thanks Skommel there must be some issue with my computer.


@orbis: I use a timer set to 60 seconds, so it can be off by almost a minute. It's just to be as easy on the CPU as possible, but I can easily change it.

@nogojoe: So the test works, but when you click Run, there's no sound?

Yes that's correct.

Uploaded the script, orbis.
Hi Skommel
I am having trouble getting this to work properly .
I get the sound files to work ok on the ui interface however won't chime on the hour through my speakers.
Going on the interface if I activate play say at 3.30 actual time it chimes 3 gongs .If I activate play at 11.30 it chimes 11 gongs .(that is even with another wav. file showing on the interface ).However if I let it work through the normal hours it doesnt chime at all . I am running Win XP 3.  Hope you or anybody can help.
Regards nogojoe .

Can you report this to them as a false positive?
Hi Tomos
Have sent them an incident report with the offending exe

my antivirus keeps on neutalizing the chime exe. Scans the exe file ok but when I try to run to install the exe the antivirus neutralises it.
what is your anti-virus?
Can you report this to them as a false positive?

It's Panda antivirus.   

:) Added a master volume control, orbis, I'll see if I can add a more targeted volume solution. Also, I found the error in the hourly files code, nogojoe, and I added a checkbox to choose between the play options.

Hi Skommel,
Can you post the new update as a ahk script my antivirus keeps on neutralizing the chime exe. Scans the exe file ok but when I try to run to install the exe the antivirus neutralises it. glad to see that you have found the error in the code but it frustrating not being able to check it out.

regards nogojoe

Added an option to play sound files 0.wav, 1.wav... 23.wav on the hour if they exist in the program's folder, mouser. :)

Or just 0 through 12, it checks if files >12 exists, and if not it chooses the earlier ones.
Hi Skommel     

I have downloaded wav files and have renamed them 0.wav, 1.wav... 23.wav as you have suggested but I am having no luck with them chiming on the hour I have the wav files in the same folder as the program.
I am running the AHK setup as the exe setup brings up a virus warning and quarantines the the exe.

it plays the chimes if you use play in the options setup .
This is the ini file :
chime=Sound + Voice
soundfile=C:\Program Files\Chime\6.wav
voice=Microsoft Sam
voicetest=The time is <Time1>. Today is <Time2>.
time2=dddd d. MMMM yyyy

Regards nogojoe

Damn, you're so awesome. Thank you very much!

It's surprising that I couldn't find a portable lightweight utility that does this (and OSX does have it).

I'll re-download it and test it out asap!  My living room has an hourly chime again.  Now to find a decent sounding grandfather clock chime.


You may have to get Skommel to modify the setup to allow each hour chime to the correct wav. file    then you would have the complete grandfather clock  .The sounds files are really authentic.

VirusTotal shows 0/56 so your AV is probably throwing a false positive.

thanks Jodi it must be

Oops! Forgot to static the gcc & stdc++ libs for release. Thanks for the heads-up.

I've uploaded one that will work for you, and everyone else  8), at the same location.
Hi I'm getting your program neutralized and quarantined as a suspicious file by my antivirus Panda Gold.

EDIT 2015-10-17 1134hrs: I just now updated my previous post (above) where I give links to the files I found.
I have now found the JoinMe software and added it to the list.

Hi Ian.
Those files download links are for the Android Smartphone version .

Many thanks for your efforts .ony hope that someone has an archived version of the of the original ZTE Telecom R1. Joinme program.


Your "friends" at CNET have v1.1.0B32:

[ Invalid Attachment ]

Softonic and other sites also have Join Me but their download links are for installer stubs, unlike the one above which downloads the original installer, (even if it is a fairly early version).
Thanks 4wD
apparently the software for Join Me is network carrier specific for the TelecomR1 phone.  Your link contained phones allocated to the Telstra network and didnt have the R1 phone on the list of phones designed for that software. The only hope is that someone has a copy of the original download for the R1 that could be used. Have tried it on JoinMe software designed for Telecom R100 but that didn't work.
The installer stubs you mention takes you to a deadend link @ ZTE.and the say they are not supporting that software now.
One would think they would have an archived version on hand for legal purposes or maybe not.

Received this today PROTONMAIL was discussed November last year.

"To celebrate our 1 year anniversary, we are upgrading all accounts created by June 17th, 2015 to 1GB of free storage! Many of you have also asked for a way to share ProtonMail with friends and family. To do that, we have created a special link that allows instant account creation:

You can send this link to friends and family and they will be able to get a ProtonMail account instantly. As our server capacity is still limited, we will only keep this link active until June 17th, 2015 (or until we hit capacity limit). Also after June 17th, all new accounts will default to 500MB of free storage.

Over the past year, ProtonMail has proven to be reliable with less than 12 hours of total downtime (mostly scheduled maintenance), no incidents of permanent data loss, and no reports of user data compromise. Over that same period, the ProtonMail user community has grown from 10,000 to 500,000 people.

As you know, we respect your privacy and do not track detailed user activity. Therefore, to continue to improve ProtonMail, we need to rely on direct feedback from you and would love to hear your suggestions or criticisms in the following survey:

Many of the improvements mentioned in the survey will be coming soon. In the past few months alone, we have added new features like folders/labels, encrypted attachments, the domain, and more: https://blog.protonm...s-new-features-guide

We look forward to continuing this exciting journey with you!

Living Room / Re: Kidney stones and Beer!
« on: July 27, 2014, 08:47 PM »
Just been though the painful process of having a stone diagnosed in one of the kidneys.
The painful part is the stone telling you its there. CT scan showed a 8mm x 6mm stone "trying" to pass through the
Had a stent inserted into the ureter to open it to 5 mm and the urologist hope that with a magic pill which may dissolve the stone to allow it to pass through the stent.
He said that they work on the thesis of multiples of ten.
If you have a stone that is 2mm  take that number away from 10 (2 from 10=8) you have an 80% chance of passing it naturally.
An 8mm stone gives you a 20% chance of passing it which he halved again for some reason I forget he said in my case.
He's giving it a month and then may blast with laser or ultrasound, the stent being there to help pass the fragments.
He said that 40% of stones if left a month will be passed without the patient knowing it,may be lucky to hear a ping in the toilet bowl.
My chances look slim though.
