You know what sucks?
E-mail address standards suck.

"very.(),:;<>[]\".VERY.\"very@\\ \"very\".unusual"

Did you know that this is a valid e-mail address? Well, it is. Try to validate that!

Oh, wait, there is a solution for that: My very own e-mail validation library.

Will move away from GitHub some day. For now, it's there. Enjoy.

It worked with the portable ZIP here which is my preferred download. :)

Looks like BitsDuJour has three SUMo offers by now:
- Discounts for a 1-Year License
- Discounts for a Lifetime License

- Free License. (At least according to the user name.)


Enjoy, probably.

Is there a difference between "entertainment" and "humor"?

I have my own blog where I irregularly write about Windows and BSD software (and Linux security problems because I find it funny to poke them). I agree with wraith808 though: I could not promise to find something interesting at least once a week. Monthly would be doable though.
(Then again, my sarcasm is not for everyone's taste.)

I wanted to add article series. Turned out the developer (me) failed to write his code in an extensible way.

Well, BlogC++ has seven new files now.  ;D
And a new feature: Article series.

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

Good luck!

Bah, 5 years - what are 5 years?  8)

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:


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

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.

I saw that one time - after a fresh installation.

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:

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.

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.)

The quotation is rather small here. My poor eyes!  :huh:
