This may also be useful to you, as it gives off a sound on no internet.

Play a sound if there is no response, simply add the -d parameter to the command

Thanks for the idea, but i like skwire's utility better.
I agree with mouser that this would be a nice addition to skwire's utility.

I've been using it even since you made it. It works great.

Coding Snacks / Re: Safe Internet

I use Bitdefender's TrafficLight. It's a free plug-in for Firefox, Chrome, or Safari.

Can you add an option to keep the ping and error counters even when the program is closed, and a reset counters button?

I attached another set of icons. A bit smaller than the previous ones I sent. Feel free to distribute them as alternative icons, if you want.

5
Thanks. It's really nice.
I preferred larger icons, so I made the attached icons.

6
That's perfect. Thanks.
Did you make that utility?

7
I'm not into AutoHotKey. I am only into AutoIt.

Someone recommended FreePing, which is a light utility that will pop up when there is no connection to a specified site.

Doesn't the standard network icon just show if the network adapter is working?
If the problem is further down the line, like if the company's router is down or if my ISP is having problems, I don't think it shows anything different.

Settings > Taskbar > Select which icons appear on the taskbar > Network > On  [ Invalid Attachment ] [ Invalid Attachment ]

I searched the site a bit and I can't find it.

Does anyone know of a utility that shows a different icon on the taskbar when there is no internet connection?

11
Skype used to have a system tray icon that changed when there is no internet access. In the new Skype there is no skype icon in the system tray, so I can't easily tell when the internet is down.

I'd like a quick way to tell when the internet is down. I don't want a network speed indicator, just an icon that appears one way when there is internet access an another way when there is no internet access. I assume this utility would have to ping some location let's say every 15 seconds.

For extra credit you could be able to configure how often it pings and where it pings.

Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: CHS Unicode support
« on: May 10, 2015, 06:21 AM »
Please add Unicode. I also need this.

13
I don't know if anyone mentioned this, but since Windows 7 there have been shortcut keys to fit a window to the right or left of the screen: Windows Key + Left Arrow and Windows Key + Right Arrow.

I was having the same problem with my laptop so I wrote this small script. I attached the script here as an .exe. Let me know if you need changes.

Code: AutoIt [Select]
  1. #include <WinAPISys.au3>
  2. Dim $return
  3.  
  4. While 1 ; infinite loop
  5.    $return = _WinAPI_GetSystemPowerStatus()
  6.    If $return[0] = 0 Then ; the first value in the returned array is 0 if the laptop is not plugged in
  7.           ToolTip(@CRLF & @CRLF & @CRLF & @CRLF & @CRLF & "     Power cable unplugged!     " & @CRLF & @CRLF & @CRLF & @CRLF & @CRLF & " ", @DesktopWidth/2 - 75, @DesktopHeight/5)
  8.    Else
  9.           ToolTip("") ; close ToolTip
  10.    EndIf
  11.    Sleep(1000)

I made a simple program for you. Let me know if you need any help with it or modifications. Attached is the program and the AutoIt source code (in the ZIP file).

Skrommel's Software / AutoClip Problem
« on: July 07, 2013, 09:41 AM »
I can't get AutoClip to automatically replace the text with my clip. It replaces the text with a space. When I click on the item in the menu, it inserts the clip, but it does not work with auto-replace.

Any ideas?

I'm running Windows 7 SP1, 64-bits.

For these options I need to know the window class:
- show the total amount of currently opened ATH_Notes in the message
- experimental option: closing the message box will automatically
  send ctrl-S to all opened ATH_Note windows.

I installed WLM and the new mail window says New Message. I installed Windows Live Mail Version 2009. Is that what you have?

Windows Media Player, RealPlayer and VLC media player all have looping options. Why do you need a special program for it?

Are you still interested in this?
What program you referring to? I can't find ATH_Notes. Do you mean ATnotes?

22
I would also like something like that. I use the Thunderbird address book for my contacts. I think it has everything you want, but it's annoying to have to open Thunderbird to access it, especially on a netbook. It would be nice if Thunderbird would separate the address book from the rest of the program.

23
I could make you an AutoIt script for this.

Do you still need this?

I would make the script to work together with FileZilla FTP program, unless you have another free FTP program that you prefer.

It apparently has something to do with the filename when saving the webpage. It happens with or without the macro. I removed part of the filename and it saved OK. I would say the filename was too long but it's within the Windows filename length limit and there are other names that I successfully saved that are longer. So I'm a bit stumped by what's wrong with the filename.

I edited the utility to allow you to edit the filename when there is an error saving.

Try the attached version with the page that didn't work:

Hi Jonathan,

Here's a very small program for copying text to a file. When you run the program, select any text, then press Ctrl+WindowsKey+c to copy the text to a file. It saves the text to a file called Clips.txt on your desktop. If the file does not exist, the program creates it.

Let me know if you want any changes. I also included the source code. It's a tiny program. If you install AutoIt (free) you can edit the code yourself. The code is very easy to read.

Shmuel
