Hi guys,

I am using Quotepad, which is awesome software, but it does not sync. Yes you can sync using Dropbox, but it's better to have sync built-in.

Are there any small utility software that has an GUI as simple and useful as Quotepad and syncs? It would be better if you can specify a custom sync URL like WebDAV, FTP, etc.

Thanks in advance. Any idea is appreciated.

I've played through the tutorial. This is a very cool piece of software. But I have one question: Why?

I have no idea how could anyone organize anything in TreeSheets. Perhaps I am too dumb to imagine how on earth it could be used to "replace for spreadsheets, mind mappers, outliners, PIMs, text editors and small databases."

Anyone has a real-world examples?

Edit: found examples in example folder. Now wondering how could play todo with it.

How's it compared with Potplayer?

There is a Chinese WinRAR knockoff for 7z:

Hi guys,

I just found this stream

http://u12b.sky.fm/s...lassical_aacplus.flv

it can not be played in foobar2000 or VLC.

Are there any other media players on Windows can play this stream and scrobble to last.fm ?

Thanks for the explanations, guys.

I know how basic virtualization works, but what I am really interested is specifically how could one strip MS Word down to that small with no obvious function loss.

Today I found another software ripped, this time it's Photoshop CS5, it's only 37MB. And those exe/dll's were not compressed with things like UPX. Total files un-rared takes about 100MB disk space.

8
damn that's expensive  ;D

But what I want to know is how those portable apps are made. I might be able to manually do the task

exactly what I wanted.  ;D thanks a million!

So I encountered a ripped version of Microsoft Word 2003 the other day, it's a single executable without any further dependences, 17.6 MB, running normal word processing tasks properly without any problem. It's made of Thinstall. It's pretty amazing to see Word so tiny and portable. But in contrast OneNote2007, the smallest version found on Google is about 230MB.

I wonder how EXACTLY can you make MS Office that small? Is there a tutorial for this kind task?

HTML DOM diff tool would be super nice  :Thmbsup:

Hi guys,

I like the Windows 7 taskbar in overall, but I really miss one thing I use a lot in pre-Win7 times, right click a taskbar icon, and press C on the keyboard to close the program. Now right click Win7 taskbar I only get a menu that does not answer to any keyboard shortcuts, unless you hold your Shift key, which brings back the classical menu.

My quesion is is it possible to tweak this feature via registry or something to make right click default for classical menu, and switch shift+click to the new Win7 style menu?

13
I am waiting for RTMP enabled tools.

I also have some little Delphi apps to modify

it wouldn't be hard to add, however Tuxman's comment reflects something i've been thinking myself.. which is that i can't help but wonder if it's a wise course to keep trying to add more and more image processing features to a screenshot tool as custom code, or whether it wouldn't be smarter to focus on improving the interfacing with other external (commandline) tools.. SC already is designed for this but i could improve it, by passing info about current selection and multiple files.



Please add some plugin / commandline support for this kind of task :)

I sincerely hope SC is the first of its kind to provide a organic screen capture engine

I requested it before:

http://www.donationc...ndex.php?topic=16700

Some other idea to share with everyone:

 * Layered screenshot for standard Windows desktop, even layered for each control

 *generate 3D screenshots for standard Win32 controls:



 * generate SVG screenshot for a window, with text actually copy-pastable (content aware & accessbility advantages), and the color of each control is defined by the system theme color from CSS

16
Hm, sophisticated screenshot taking and editing in one application? I actually doubt that.

 ;D Perhaps I was too demanding. Any toolkit can get this job done?

17
Hi guys, are there any free post-screenshot editor that can do this easily?  ;D



  • Auto scroll screenshot, but capture the scrolling page as well as the window frame
  • Torn edge effect in between to omit unnecessary content, but do not torn the scroll bar area
  • dim all areas, highlight a non-rectangle area

The picture is a lousy example I made in photoshop, it took me 20 minutes, I am n00b in Photoshop, so I desperately need some one-click tool for post screenshot processing.

Well, assuming you're using a browser to interface with the proxy, have you tried tweaking browser settings? For instance, disables HTTP pipelining when it can see it's dealing with a proxy server...

Apart from that, it's still hard to say much else - there's unfortunately no such thing as magic in computer software. How to speed things up depends on the rest of the software... you might be able to use a different proxy software (or not, depending on how it interfaces with the prefetching). Perhaps client actions can be anticipated and acted on, perhaps not. It also depends on whether you're going to transfer a few big files, or a lot of small ones.. there's lots and lots of parameters :)

tweaking solves edge problem, not the main problem. What I need is a general pupose proxy toolkit to speed things up.

Still, thanks a lot man.

If you knew any stuff like this invented in the future, please inform me  ;D

are there any software that can do the ====> part.
Dunno - that would pretty much depend on the client in your diagram :) - and the local http server as well.

As stated before, you aren't going to find software that can perform magic and parallelize stuff without support from it's endpoints... and you provide very little information on goals and involved software, so it's hard to give any concrete recommendations.

So, what's the deal? Is this understanding correct?

1) high-speed server preFETCHes HTTP resources
2) server PUSHes those resources to "client" machine
3) "client" machine runs a http proxy, and web browser on "client" machine access that local proxy

...and you want the PUSH to be faster than it currently is, and you don't want to wait for entire FETCH to be done before you PUSH?

Thanks for the pentiance, man.

Push or fetch doesn't matter, I just need some client-server softwarekit to replace the traditional standard HTTP proxy, which has a special mechanism to make transfer faster. By parallelly or by magic.

I knew there's space for speed up, because I can download from that remote proxy server in high speed (by using multithreaded download tools)

the client probably isn't a standard web browser

yes there should also be a standard http proxy server on the client side for browsers.

Traditional way:

HTTP resources -> prefetch server   ->  client -> browser

Parallel transfer:

HTTP resources -> prefetch server ====> client -> local http server -> browser

The question I am asking is

Are there any software (client-server pair) has this ====> feature.

There isn't really anything the proxy in and by itself can do to help you out
I am looking for this kind of software. Thus this post.
And I'm saying it can't be done without client+server support :). If you're talking HTTP connections, then something could be done - the proxy could split client requests into multiple server requests with varying content-length... but that wouldn't buy you very much, and if the bottleneck is between client->proxy, then it buys you nothing at all.

Anyway, I'm getting 2MB/s with regular TCP connections on my 20Mbit line, so...
I am so jealous
:)

I started with a 512/128 line, and switched to 4096/256 when I figured out it was only $20/month more expensive. Since that, my ISP has been doubling my speed every now and then... too bad I've pretty much hit the limit of what ADSL2+ offers, hope they'll start reducing price soon, or move me to VDSL :P

Yes a client+server pair is needed. My remote server can prefetch http resources fast enough, it's just the proxy -> me part is slow if using a normal HTTP proxy.

Why should you worry about my udp transporting speed? I can download BitTorrent fast enough.
I don't really worry about your UDP speed, all I'm saying is that (unless rate-limited some way), UDP goes full throttle and pumps out packets as fast as your link can handle - unlike TCP which does congestion control, and has slow-start.

BitTorrent uses TCP and not UDP, but has massively parallel connections - but you probably already know that.

It's just one personal remote server (reverse proxy) which is transferring data really slow. What should I do? I can't wait all the http resources to be full downloaded then use multithreaded download tools to download them because they are requested on demand. So what's your guy's suggestion?
You really need to explain in more detail what it is you want to do, and which software is involved. As I've already mentioned, you can't just automagically make a proxy parallelize things without client+server support...

Oh btw, BitTorrent is way faster in UDP, perhaps you are choosing the wrong client  :P

Ok, I am a bit confused, what else should I explain?

And again,

I have a remote server as a reverse proxy/http proxy, it's kinda slow, I hope there's some kind of software to speed it up a little by doing parallel data transfer.

Is this too hard?

If it's a custom protocol, how on earth would a generic proxy server be able to automagically split the workload for you? :) - you can't just say "take this data stream and split it into three new ones", that kind of thing requires support both in the client and server side programs.

If your UDP data rate is poor, it's either because one (or both) end(s) are rate-limited somehow, or because the protocol is designed poorly (waiting for ACKs). With TCP you can gain a little by multiple connections even if there's no rate-limiting going on, but UDP always goes full throttle and shouldn't benefit from parallelizing - au contraire.
