N.A.N.Y. 2014 / Re: NANY 2014 Release - Spews
« on: July 06, 2018, 09:19 PM »
v1.1.2 released today.  Download from here: http://www.dcmembers...wire/download/spews/

v1.1.2 - 2018-07-06
    + Added Start and Stop entries to tray menu.
    + Added "Copy image to clipboard" entry to the tray menu.
    + Added "Copy image path to clipboard" and "Copy image to clipboard" entries to the File menu of the main window.
    ! Fixed a file order bug where wallpapers would start with the second in the list instead of the first.  (Thanks, Martin E.)

v1.1.1 - 2018-05-08
    + Changing the Wallpaper Position and Fill Color options refreshes the current wallpaper.  (Thanks, ConstanceJill)
    + Added option to not randomize the image list.  (Thanks, Martin E.)
    * "Fill (by width)" has been renamed to "Fill" and should now work properly with very wide images.  (Thanks, Martin E.)

Done...and gladly.  Great site.

But What to do if the proxy settings are locked down? and i don't have the admin rights of my office laptop. Thank you

There is nothing I can do about that.

No need to hurry!

Actually, I do, because I really like for my bookmarks to be synced between browsers and computers (and haven't been able to since XMarks was shut down).  I've tried a couple of other solutions but none have worked consistently, so I'm holding out hope for ymarks.  =]

FWIW, I've been meaning to set aside some time to give this a go.

You are welcome.  I'm glad you find it useful.   :)

Seems like @dcwul62 dont participate more of the thread. Maybe offended... I dont known...

I sent him a personal message as well in hopes that he sees this.

Some feedback about SFV_Ninja: The F12 trick is something quickly you do specifically for @dcwul62? ...Because dont seems documented in any form and dont correspond to any menu in the UI.

You are correct.  I created a custom build just for dcwul62's request.

Besides once F12 is pressed there is not way to return to the original list.

Yep.  Again, just a quick mod for his needs.  I wasn't sure if the need extended to other users.

Another sugestion would be the posibility of copy/cut to the clipboard the files in the list (the files dont the filenames). That way would be possible copy in SF_Ninja list and paste in a new folder.

That's a good idea.  I'll keep it in mind.

Great work in the app...skwire I use several of your programs... there are great!

Thank you for your kind words.  I'm glad you find the applications useful.   :)

@dcwul62: Apologies for the delay.  Please give this a try:


  • Download, unpack, and run SFVNinja_Mod.exe
  • Load your folders/files.  You can drag-and-drop or use the toolbar buttons.
  • Click the "All" button in the toolbar.  Depending on number and size of the files, this might take a while.
  • Once SFV Ninja is done generating the checksums, press F12 to reduce the list to unique files.

Let me know if this works for you.

@tomos, you may have forgotten:

does not work on Windows 8/10

FWIW, I've had at least one report of it working on Windows 10 so you're welcome to try it. If you do, let us know how you get on with it.

Skwire Empire / Re: Wishing for a blank line
« on: May 26, 2018, 10:41 PM »
Would love to see the two following changes
1) A checkbox with no text next to it becomes a blank line

I'm not quite sure what you mean here as you can simply delete any text from a given entry and the entry will stay there (blank).  If you mean you want a blank line without an actual checkbox, that's not possible with the standard listview that sChecklist uses.

2) 3 checkbox options, blank, checkmark and filled. Could use filled checkbox as a section header.

Again, not possible with the standard listview.  The only options are checked or not checked.

I have used and loved this program for so many years and I encourage anyone reading this to DONATE .. we need to encourage J to write more creative programs like this and sWeather, sPlaylistMake, sLyrics, etc.

Thank you for the kind words.  Much appreciated.   :)

@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...

Coding Snack-centric folks that deserve a share: 4wd, Target, Ath, c.gingerich, & Skrommel.
Other coders that deserve a share: hamradio, Deozaan, Stoic Joker, wraith808, app, MilesAhead, Tuxman, BGM, & anandcoral.

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.
