Coding Snack Guidelines / Re: Simple logon-logoff timekeeper
« on: September 08, 2018, 03:13 PM »
Something like this?

Date and time fields are populated with the current time when the application is started
In and out buttons write to a file named "log.csv" (UTF-8, no BOM) in the SAME directory of the .exe file
(so don't put this in a UAC protected folder if you don't want to start it with admin permissions...)

Pressing {ESC} quits the application...

Entries look like this:

This should be easily importable into Excel...

Why don't you try to accomplish something on your own (like... forever)?

That would actually be a real improvement...

Nobody suggested that you make an answer public (while I can only hope that people finally stop to support laziness) *sigh*

I had the time to improve my version (a tiny bit)...

It now creates a log file (in %TEMP%) with the files that have been deleted and
automatically opens it with the associated application afterwards

It should be about 10-20 times faster than the old version (on fast hardware like SSDs)
because of better designed structures and ways to find the largest file...

Just write one yourself (and don't forget to make it public afterwards)...

AutoIt, AutoHotkey, PureBasic, etc., etc., etc.

Regarding the Amazfit BIP,

mine (I do not use notifications, gps tracking, etc., only the step monitor + sleep surveillance) lasts a sporting 100+ days with one charge...

Yeah, really, no joke :Thmbsup:

Try the attached file (with some testdata folders first!)

VT: https://www.virustot...analysis/1534240206/

Works fine here...

Got it. Thanks a lot, ayryq!

I'm currently migrating from PostBox to The Bat so I would be glad to get that key...


This one does it for all files in a folder (not recursively)...

Accepts one parameter, the foldername (put it in quotes if it contains spaces, full path required)!

It is a command line app, the return values are the following:
0 = Everything went fine, modified times should be set correctly
1 = You forgot to call it with a foldername (full path)
2 = The folder does not exist!
3 = Setting the new modified date failed (could e.g. happen if you try to change a date for a file in a UAC protected directory, and the app was not called with admin permissions)

Ofc this version just skips all files that do not fulfill the requirements...

Alternatively, try this...

Written in PureBasic.
Accepts one parameter, the filename (put it in quotes if it contains spaces)!

It is a command line app, the return values are the following:
0 = Everything went fine, modified time should be set correctly
1 = You forgot to call it with a filename
2 = The filename does not exist!
3 = There isn't a space where it should be (between date and time in the filename)
4 = Either the date or the time doesn't have the expected length (8 chars for the date, 6 for the time)
5 = Setting the new modified date failed (could e.g. happen if you try to change a date for a file in a UAC protected directory, and the app was not called with admin permissions)

Living Room / Re: Why doesn't DC make its own browser?

I don't see anywhere that it uses Chromium, so I'm curious.

Note: Min uses an older version of Chromium, which may be missing security fixes from later versions. More Information

And uses an outdated (missing security fixes) version of Chromium... Why on earth should somebody use such stuff?

Fantastic, this is it :Thmbsup:

Thanks a lot, 4wd!

Living Room / [Solved] Looking for a specific youtube video...
« on: February 12, 2018, 02:33 PM »

It's from one of the casting shows like America's got talent or Britain's got talent (at least I hope so).

A blind young woman is brought on stage by a female assistant. The assistant talks to her all the time and guides her.
"Watch out, here are some steps, ... , the audience is right in front of you". Something like that.

Any hints, tips, links!?! Can't find anything that matches...

T-Clock / Re: T-Clock Broken In Windows 10 Fall Creators Update
« on: October 20, 2017, 03:46 AM »
Which T-Clock version are you using, the one from the x64 or the one from the Win32 folder
and did you really copy the correct x86/x64 version of the msvcr100.dll into that folder /
have the correct bitness version of the Visual C++ package installed?

Living Room / Re: For those with a CrashPlan...
« on: August 31, 2017, 05:31 AM »
they have a year of 2TB for $7.

To make sure that people are aware of the limitation for that offer, I'll quote their website:

* The 90% offer is applicable for the first year only. 90% offer is only if you are currently using a competing cloud backup service. You need to provide proof of your existing service provider’s account. Competing services include Carbonite, Mozy, CrashPlan, Backblaze, SOSonlinebackup, Dropbox and Google Backup and Sync.

It'll be in the last place you look, so start there.
Thank you! Unfortunately it isn't there... So I still need more help.
Seeking for it. Tried running. Failed! Runned to try. Asked myself
what this could mean. Failed again! Help?

It uses a Standard Hyper-Index Test (S.H.I.T.)  - essentially a a loop counter - to dynamically assess the number/count of tries on a question-point against the Final Attention Number (F.A.N.) - which is a variable number - a maximum calculated by the PEM. So CONTRO will eventually independently abandon a dead-end line of questioning anyway, when the SHIT hits the FAN.
Best part of!  :Thmbsup:

don't you think
So I'm wrong, this board was converted to a damn chat system?
I must have missed it. Sorry!

Yes, he asks a lot of questions
You mean the many hundreds that search engines would have answered as well?

I guess you don't mind when I do the same in the future. Ignoring any existing
information on the net just to spam the forum and mindlessly replying to my own
posts with useless phrases. Don't you? Great! Looking forward to it...

Btw, I came to this post to ask if someone can give me a hint how to find
the thesis I was working on (on real paper!). I've lost it somewhere.
Maybe the dog ate it? I don't know!
Surely there is some software around that can help me to find it?

Please name it! A search engine was of no help. I promise I'll be running to try
any suggestions!

Just a note to myself: Don't ever let your dog eat something. I should probably
let him starve to death...

I will comment
Just don't!  >:(

This is a forum, not a damn chat system :down:

I will keep trying alone
Please keep that in mind before posting the next 3000 things, you don't want a search engine to feed with...

No help !!!!
You mean the world has finally quit to support your laziness to not research even the most simple things on your own?

Rather unlikely...


A very simple .ahk script, that outputs all command line parameters it receives

Loop, %0%  ; For each parameter:
    param := %A_Index%  ; Fetch the contents of the variable whose name is contained in A_Index.
    MsgBox, 4,, Parameter number %A_Index% is %param%.  Continue?
    IfMsgBox, No

This one will be compiled into "Get command line parameters.exe"

If invoked from a command prompt with:
"R:\Get command line parameters.exe" "arg1" "arg2"
It outputs both arguments correctly

But when I now create a shortcut to the .exe file
"R:\Get command line parameters.exe.lnk"

and put the command line arguments into the target field of this shortcut e.g. with:
"R:\Get command line parameters.exe" "arg1" "arg2"

The called .exe will output: nothing!

Both params aren't passed to the .exe file...

System: Windows Server 2012 R2 U3 x64

Does anyone have an idea on what is causing this behavior?


stores it's setting inside %APPDATA%\etcher?

Very portable, indeed...

35MB vs 1MB (Rufus)

and while Etcher is still "trying" to show it's interface (after doubleclicking the .exe),
I've written half of the netinstall iso (Debian Stretch) to the USB 3 stick (Rufus)

There are things in life that I don't want to waste my time with. Etcher is clearly one of them...

bootup time was less than 1 minute?
Yes, about 58 seconds. I wanted to measure how much time I'm able to shave off :)

What is the Windows version, and what is the CPU of that PC, please?
Windows 7 Pro. AMD Athlon 2 but don't ask which one / MHz...
