Ehm, the Kirby Software site is alive and kicking, and they officially support sending e-mail. Have you tried getting support there?

Screenshot Captor / Re: Startup win10
« on: February 18, 2018, 03:15 PM »
Personally, I suspect that to be a Win 10 FCU issue/bug. I've had trouble with several programs not autostarting, depending on the day of the week, the updates installed, the number of reboots and probably the temperature of my morning-tea. Currently all is fine, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed for after the next updates :tellme:
Oh, and Screenshot Captor always starts fine, it's Skype for business (MS) and/or MS Outlook that's acting up...

Gadgets have been actively discontinued by MS because of the insecure nature of the implementation. Even in Windows 7 they are getting 'problematic' to run. (Most backend services from MS have been dismantled, even before the support of Win7 ended)

Skwire Empire / Re: Release: sWeather (tray-based weather app)
« on: February 15, 2018, 01:07 PM »
Made the temperature icon the default and made the weather condition icon optional.

Well, the disadvantage of this change is that the temperature icon now gets hidden if you're not showing all systray icons. The weather condition icon is now the only icon I can make visible permanently, in that configuration. I'm on Windows 10, and the temperature icon isn't available in the "Select which icons appear on the taskbar" configuration screen (just like the weather condition icon wasn't there in the previous version). Haven't tried that setting on Win7 (yet), and I don't want to show all systray icons (way too many, uninteresting icons that can't be hidden in another way, AFAIC).
Is there a way you can make the 'main' icon to use configurable, and the secondary optional? (I actually have them both enabled, but only one is visible all the time)

N.A.N.Y. 2018 / NANY 2018 Mug showoff
« on: February 09, 2018, 01:05 PM »
Today the NANY2018 mugs I ordered arrived. As usual, mouser demands we post pictures :P

I ordered both the standard NANY design mug and this year's new design by hamradio (that I really like). I ordered the alternate, smaller size, mugs as the regular size mugs won't fit under the coffee machine at work without partially dismantling it :huh:
This time the mugs will actually be used for coffee or tea

The photo was taken with a partial floor plan for one of the Red Cross sleeping locations at the 4 Days Walks in Nijmegen, NL.

Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Clip H&S's interaction with MSFT Word?
« on: February 08, 2018, 09:55 AM »
Isn't that caused by the Office/Word clipboard thingy? You could try to disable that. It is known to interfere with other clipboard managers, afair

Well, that's quite important information, and would have been 'helpful' in the original post.

While I'm a bit concerned about the legal implications of that solution, I still expect it's not going to work like you want it to. What's stopping you from actually installing and using 'the real thing' MS Outlook, that is also getting security updates and bugfixes? You did pay money for that, possibly somewhat shady, other solution, could have been spent differently...

I'm pretty sure Outlook Express 6 (OE6) does not support both of that. Popup notifications and/or opening a specific or the first unread message from outside OE6.

But please explain how you got OE6 installed on Windows 7? I never could get that installed/working, way back when I switched to W7, in 2009... I seem to remember MS made inroads to make that actually/nearly impossible (AFAIR it was part of the Windows XP package, with no separate installer), just to get everyone off of OE6 and on to the (real crap) Windows Live Mail disaster.

I have used the local branch (NL) of Kroll Ontrack, they recovered my somewhat broken harddrive very nicely and at reasonable cost, some 8 years ago, and I recommend them to anyone needing hdd recovery.

I updated the other post, 'cause I found that the ssl issue is caused by some of the smileys: http :// www (spaces inserted by me)

Do we have a new favicon? In my memory it was more blueish, but now it's more green/yellowish. I think I (still) like it :)

The ssl 'lock' on my Firefox is 'complaining' that some parts of the site aren't secure, like images (browser UI talks Dutch to me, so I'm sort of translating on the fly), some configuration issue? I seem to remember that after the last server move there was something similar, and mouser fixed it pretty quick, AFAIR.
Edit: It has to do with some of the smileys: http :// www (and others)

No bugs found so far, but even on the old, slow laptop I'm on now, the site is blazingly fast. Wow! :Thmbsup:

It seems that hard work, and probably a bit of luck, gave us back our favorite site. Yay :-*

Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: delay IN sendkeys?
« on: January 15, 2018, 01:00 PM »
Well, actually it's not strange, but as to be expected:
old situation:
- type username
- wait awhile
- send tab-key and a password and enter-key all at once
== no time for processing

new situation:
- type username and leave field to trigger processing
- allow other processing to run by giving a time-slice back to the system by using sleep
- send password and enter-key so second field can be processed and login handled
== timing is no issue as all processing is allowed when required by the system

voila :)

If you swap the {SLEEP 1000} and {TAB} around, then the Tab could start the 'on change' event that takes a little time, wait the 1000msec and then fill in the password.
Maybe that's a better timing model?

Living Room / Re: Laptop monitor screen to box pc via cables?
« on: January 11, 2018, 05:35 AM »
You will need some electronics to convert the vga/hdmi/dvi/dp connection to the screen signals, and get some power from somewhere into the screen. Conclusion: Not easy. (never seen such devices either)

Win+P is a Windows predefined hotkey, at least from Windows 8 and later (you seem to be on Windows 7 though), you might want to avoid confusion or try another hotkey to see if that might work better

N.A.N.Y. 2018 / Re: NANY 2018 Release: BedPlanner
« on: January 09, 2018, 01:25 PM »
We have 9 altars here at our house, and I have to schedule any random number of priests to say Mass at them every day.  Sometimes we have only a few priests, sometimes we have 20 (at certain times of the year).
I'd like to think this over a bit, but I'm not very familiar with these type of planning/scheduling challenges, so I have a couple of questions about that:
  • At what times are these Masses planned?
  • All at the same time?
  • overlapping?
  • sequential?
  • Are the priests to say (max) 1 Mass per day?
  • or more when not enough priests are available?

BedPlanner takes into account some special attributes of people and beds/rooms, are there any special attributes available/needed in this context?

N.A.N.Y. 2018 / Re: NANY 2018 Release: BedPlanner
« on: January 09, 2018, 01:10 PM »
Well, if you where to plan a group of visitors into a chapel, to get the most efficient use of the seats, then, maybe, BedPlanner would be sort of usable for that. But planning priests to say Mass at any of available altars seems more appropriately planned by another type of scheduler/planner.
Searching for such type of planner/scheduler will most likely get you result, as this sounds like a rather common type of resource-distribution problem, like schools need for planning teachers in classes.

Why did you write this?
Well, several reasons (not limited to this list):
  • Requested by a colleague (see my description above)
  • The challenge to get the idea off the ground
  • Replace a quite laborious manual process
  • I like programming/problem solving :)

Living Room / Re: Whatsapp Desktop: can it do videocalls?
« on: January 07, 2018, 05:01 AM »
there currently is no video/calling capability in the Whatsapp desktop client.
And ditto for the web client.

Best alternative: Install Android in an emulator and run WhatsApp from there, as suggested in this 'Quora' post

As an alternative to WA, you could try Signal, it too has a web client, but I'm not sure if it supports their Video calls yet.
