The UnClouder website moved its server as well. If anything breaks, please let me know.

The fan of old-school tools strikes again.  8)
(NANY 2019, anyone?)

Do you know what's missing in both POSIX and Windows? Right: A sane way to rename files/directories with a regular expression.
The usual approach on POSIX systems is:

ls * | sed -E 's/(.*)text(.*)to(.*)remove(.*)/mv & "$1$2$3$4"/' | sh

That is horrendously ugly and does not port well to Windows. Here is my slightly less horrendously ugly attempt to fix that:

Enjoy.

Ghacks got the year right this time. Nice.  ;D

N.A.N.Y. 2018 / Re: NANY 2018 - 6 Command line Database utilities

I honestly wish more people would come back to Delphi (or Free Pascal, whatever floats your boat) so I can have more reasons to use Delphi for new projects because of a sane ecosystem. As it stands, every additional Delphi Unit that does not come from Embarcadero (or whatever their current name is) is pretty much left to rot. :(

(But Delphi sure does have a nice "standard" library.)

 ;D "a fan of text-mode terminals and old-school tools" - adequate! Can I get a badge for that?

Thank you for the roundup!

The main advantage is probably one less request, resulting in resource optimization.  :)

At least they published it at all! 360 days to go for NANY 2018.

I was informed by someone who actually wants to use ymarks  :huh: that I forgot to pack the winsqlite.dll file and some people seem to require it. I'll make a new archive in the evening (CET).

I watched Julia's Eyes. Nice plot, badly played.

N.A.N.Y. 2018 / Re: NANY 2018 Release: Gowser, a Gopher browser
« on: December 23, 2017, 02:49 PM »
FYI: I had planned to write an Android version of Gowser for NANY '19. However, there already is an awesome Gopher client for Android which is exactly what I would have written:
https://play.google....afewroosloose.gopher

16
I released version 6, introducing plug-ins.

My GNU/Linux tester has sadly decided to use Hugo instead (which is better than BlogC++, admittedly). Maybe I'll find a new one some day.

17
Update: The Android version is postponed until some time in 2018, I probably won't do it in Java.

Yes. (All of it, except:

It seems that Gowser uses Internet Explorer.

^ this depends on the OS. Gowser's GUI is wrapped over whatever is native.)

N.A.N.Y. 2018 / NANY 2018 Release: UnClouder for Firefox
« on: November 18, 2017, 04:34 PM »
NANY 2018 Entry Information

Application Name UnClouder
Version 0.2
Short Description Replaces "the Cloud" marketing speech on websites you visit to correctly describe potential security issues.
Web Page http://mozilla.tuxproject.de/unclouder
Download Link https://addons.mozil...fox/addon/unclouder/
System Requirements
  • Firefox 57 or higher
Version History
  • 0.1: Initial release
  • 0.2: Grammar fixes, (virtual) DOM fixes
Author mouser  :P (just in case anything breaks)

One more? Fuck yeah!

This little side-project of mine is my first approach at a content script (formerly known as "userscript") for Firefox's WebExtension thingy. It basically grew as a playfield while preparing ymarks development, I just had the time to finish it.

Features:

If you visit a German or English website talking about "the Cloud" bullshit, this extension will replace that bullshit by "other people's computers" so you can easily see why the bullshit is bullshit.

Portability issues:

  • I only added two languages for now. I am lazy.
  • The UnClouder uses Firefox's "CLD2" language detector. Addendum: Chrome et al. support that too, but the messaging infrastructure seems to work differently. If anyone of you needs a Chrome/Vivaldi/... version, let me know that it might be worth the effort.

Enjoy or whatever.

The one big change seem to be the ribbons. Not worth it for me.

I uploaded a first Chrome extension to the ymarks site. Enjoy or don't.
Totally untested.

Note that Firefox's special folders are probably different from Chrome's. You might run into some weirdness yet.
