Post New Requests Here / Re: Tally folder contents by file date
« on: September 22, 2018, 11:53 PM »
You can download it from

There are two files in the 75kb archive... TallyFiles.exe and CommandLine.dll.

Run TallyFiles to see the options, but they are

        [Option('d', "directory", Required = true, HelpText = "Directory to Scan")]
        [Option('f', "format", Required = false, HelpText = "Format of Date (Default yyyy-MM-dd)")]
        [Option('o', "output", Required = false, HelpText = "output filename (default name of directory, stored in directory)")]
        [Option('c', "compare", Required = false, HelpText = "compare to [C]reation Date or Last [A]ccess Date or Last [W]rite Date")]

So by default, if you run TallyFiles d=c:\test it will tally the files in c:\test and store them in c:\test\text.txt.  Formats are c# datetime formats (https://docs.microso...-time-format-strings), and if you specify an output filename, it will store it there. 

Requires .NET 4.5.2

Let me know if you have any questions.

Update: Added ability to use write and last access dates.

And by date, do you mean cration date of the files, modification date, or something else?

That url is not the one that is in your original post, i.e.

EDIT: There was an image up there when I replied, but I don't see it...

I'm beginning to wonder if this is a perma-sale...  nobody ever pays the "full" price?

People have had trouble for doing similar things... so I'd hope they'd consider the legalities of that approach.

There were folders named with Hiragana characters in what I extracted.  I moved all of these to the root.  A few of those were supposed to be contained in others as shown on running when files were not where they were supposed to be.  Diagnosed the errors and moved those (AppInfo I think was one, forget the other).  It was a pretty straightforward process from the error messages.

I can't do much more but only say that my software and site are clean, use it only if you want.

I've used your software so know that it is clean (and Clicador doesn't show up in my local Malwarebytes).  But, others visiting won't know, and will disregard it out of fear, so figured it might be good to inform you.  The details were some sort of riskware was detected: "Riskware, or “risky software,” describes legitimate software programs that contain loopholes or vulnerabilities that can be exploited by hackers for malicious purposes."  With that in mind, your reasons make sense.

Living Room / Re: EU to Stop Summer (or is it Winter) Time
« on: September 16, 2018, 03:23 PM »
Please remember the basics. Time zones are as old as civilization itself: You go to another place, east or west, and adjust your clock accordingly - weather it is your inner clock or an actual clock. It was always like that. Only, now there is a name and a organized system.

Also, in this system there is no winter time, because that is normal time.

Forgive me for sounding like an old man past his bedtime.

The part that you're forgetting is that if each country chooses its own time, i.e. Summer or Winter, it will be nothing like that.  It would be better if no-one switched, and everyone was on the same relative time around the world.  When you're working with someone else around, this changing of the time is terrible, as sometimes, someone can be 9 hours away, and sometimes 10... and the 10 can make it quite hard to collaborate.  If some chose the 9-hour difference and others chose the 10-hour difference, this would be insane.


Wraith808, you are full of crap. Read back thru the posts, Everything was going great until you and Mouser (who should know better) and 4wd and Ath just had to chime in and just couldn't stay out of this initial post and practically hijacked it with all your own input.

I felt like reaching thru the screen and telling you all to stfu.  This was my requirement/idea NOT yours for gawd sakes.

All of you should be ashamed of yourselves for butting in and ruining this.

I am the one who did not get anything, YES I am the one who is punished here, thats the bottom line.

Ring the shame bell.

I didn't jump in, other than to agree that robocopy was a good tool.  It's apparently you that aren't reading well.  You could indeed reach out to KodeZwerg behind the scenes to see if he'd be willing to continue.  Offer him encouragement and perhaps even compensation.  But instead, you'd rather play the victim, and try to shame others- even the one that was trying to help you.  Entitled much?

Can confirm... worked for me too.  I didn't even install the portable- just extracted it and had to move a few folders.

You can try those and see if any satisfy your need.

From those, my personal recommendation is EmEditor, 010, or LogExpert.

I don't know what processes means, however in that context.  And on this Ath is correct.  You want better recommendations, give better requirements.

Also, changing it to https, I now get ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR.  Not sure if that's Malwarebytes mucking about, or the method that you used to generate your cert.

Listen here Wraith, how the hell do you know what someone else is thinking?
Don't tell me what to do and how about you mind your own damn business.

This has nothing to do with you.

I would like to see new rules on this site that only allow the originator to dictate what they want or require because all the side comments ruined this with their OWN personal demands/suggestions which has NOTHING to do with me.

So get that into ya..

I never said anything about you, I talked about what he had said, and a more reasoned approach that you might take to get his attention instead of attempting to shame him into continuing or shame him for not continuing.   I was actually considering looking at this if he didn't want to continue because I could see that he dropped it because of crosstalk, not as a punishment to you, but in his own words:

i feel sorry to silent dropped this discussion.
Initial i really felt to help, and it was already finished, at least 95% with maybe 5% bugs left.
But that "do this/dont that" and "use this/not that" has killed my fun in developing it, its already dumped after all those "delete is a no go" texts.

Try to motivate him, not shame him was my only suggestion.  Whatever you take from that is your problem.  And no, I'm in no way thinking of picking this up at this point.  Onward!

You might want to get your site checked out- it's registering as a dangerous site with Malwarebytes, and a few others.


My site is very simple and clean, also my software is clean, I can assure that.

Can't do much about it. No idea why they say it has malware... maybe because I don't have a SSL certificate...

Ok, I was just letting you know in case you wanted to reach out.  It could be that whomever had the domain before you did had some nasty stuff hosted.  Or it could be a false positive.  But I figured that you'd want to know.

Just curious on a separate point... what do you like better about over Pastebin?

Bottom line, shame on you KodeZwerg for bailing (unless you were unable to technically accomplish it. then I am sorry.)

Shame on him?  He bailed because he thought that was a general consensus.  Reach out to him directly to say, "Hey, I don't care.  Can you complete this?"

The other approach is to say your connection is metered - although it will still pester but should not download without permission

That has other side effects as I said above.  And they are very much bad effects for me.  Dropbox, Onedrive, my backup service, and others stopped updating because it was metered.  Make sure that you know what those side effects are, or you could be surprised as I was when I found out (they don't proactively warn you).

Here's what I've done that has been working for me so far. Note that I'm using Windows 10 Pro so this may not be available in the "basic" version(s) of Windows 10.

Unfortunately, I have windows 10 home, and apparently, it doesn't have that option.

Living Room / Re: Do Not Buy a Smartwatch Right Now
« on: September 13, 2018, 12:33 PM »
I have the Apple watch series 3 and have used it in the pool here at my complex and at the beach without any issues. It's been great and I have no plans on getting the series 4

I think the points are threefold - (a) you're comparing two different kinds of watches, (b) IP68 is better than just splashes, and (c) up until after release 1, Apple watches were actually worse than this watch.  It's all about paying for what you want, and they do have a watch that is pretty comparable for a lot less- it's just not this one.

I woke up again to my machine being restarted.  To make it worse, I had a VM open as I was going to have an early meeting and wanted to make sure I didn't have to start the VM before the meeting.  To make it even worse, the VM showed aborted as the status.  I started the VM, and it was thankfully fine, but I just knew I had to do something at this point.

Apparently, Microsoft introduced a Windows Update Medic Service in 1803- I'm guessing this is what broke my workaround.  This service is apparently meant to repair Windows Update if something happens to it.  The service itself has the description, "Enables remediation and protection of Windows Update components." That protection part means that this re-enables the Windows Update Service if you disable it- I found that out the hard way.  To make it even worse, you can't disable this service.  You get access is denied if you attempt to do so.  I suppose you could attempt to take ownership, but I found a tool that does it for you before I even tried, and figured I'd mention it here, as I don't see any mentions on a search.

Windows Update Blocker (https://www.sordum.o...update-blocker-v1-1/) is a portable tool that allows you to disable both.  It does require a bit to get it to disable the medic service that you have to do manually, though it does have a protect service settings that would seem to handle that also.


The struggle is real- how long can this continue before they learn that their customers don't want this?

"IP68 rating - resistant to dust, rain and splashing"

I'll stick with my Apple watch. Need more water proofing than IP68.

Apple watch was IPX7 for the longest.

Your Apple Watch is water resistant, but not waterproof.*


The latest versions are finally waterproof, but just figured the clarification was needed.

I'm sure it will get there.  The Stratos (which is still less expensive, and what I'd think would be compared to an Apple watch) in contrast is waterproof.  It's just a matter of getting what you need, I think.

I now have a AmazFit BIP - GPS, barometer, compass, accelerometer, notifications, heart rate, steps, transflective display, etc ... and a 30+ day battery life.

For ~US$60 I paid, I don't think there's anything comparable with the same features especially the battery life.

It's back on Massdrop, so I'm thinking about it again... just posting here in case anyone is interested.

General Software Discussion / Humble Bundle for Xara tools
« on: September 11, 2018, 04:25 PM »
We'd been talking about Affinity Publisher vs Adobe Indesign, and now Humble Bundle comes along to throw another entry into the ring.


For $25, you get a lot of software- but I'm most interested in Xara Designer Pro X.  Has anyone used it?  I've looked at a couple of comparisons and reviews, but nothing beats that hands-on review from a non-reviewer.  At $25, it's hard to lose out getting it, but I was just wondering if anyone had experience with it.

I looked at the deals again after rambler's post... they are good deals if you use that software.  Looks like loss leaders.

And I noticed why the person might have drive by posted it...
