Living Room / Re: Looking for "Smart"watch Recommendations
« on: March 06, 2019, 07:14 PM »
FWIW, by chance, I just came across this article at "makeuseof" about new Fitbits.

Living Room / Re: Looking for "Smart"watch Recommendations
« on: March 06, 2019, 05:07 PM »
I purchased an amazfit bip about 5 months ago, after seeing it mentioned by, I think, 4WD.
Use it with an android phone (galaxy S8). I used to use a samsung gear watch - that now sits in a drawer, because I got sick of needing to charge it so frequently.
 I wanted it to map tracks, water tanks, gates on a sheep station. Too old/lazy/disinterested to take note of the fitness capabilities of the watch.
I'm very happy with it:
1. battery matches the claims made. I don't even think about charging it, until every now and again, I think "strewth, been a while since charging". Typically, I've still got >30% battery remaining.
2. GPS accuracy has been excellent. I've compared tracks from the watch and a dedicated gps tracking device and they closely agree. Does require a 3rd party app to be able to extract the route tho.
   I can't say whether that implies the fitness "stuff" is therefore accurate or not.... maybe it does for cycling, but not walking.
3. Notifications work fine.
4. Screen viewability in the sun is good.
5. Cost was great.

Negatives
1. For MY use, I need a 3rd party app. From memory, about $3
2. extracting route info sometimes a bit fiddly. If I used it daily, this would disappear, but as it is, I do this "mapping"  on an irregular basis.

Idea from a non-programmer, based on 7zip's ability to list contents of (at least) zip files using CLI...
1. AHK calls 7zip and gets archive contents written to a temp text file (maybe AHK can read 7zip output on the fly, I don't know)
2. AHK parses text file and takes required action


Here's a batch file I came across which caught my eye
-----------------
@Echo off
SET LOGFILE=MyLogFile.log
call :Logit >> %LOGFILE%
exit /b 0

:Logit
7z l archive_to_check.zip
-----------------

No worries, and again, thanks. Meanwhile, I'll try thinking about how to change my approach to conform to AudioMarker.

Thanks for getting back to me.
In the import files list in my screenshot, you can see several mp3 files I've imported. Each is for either one word or a short phrase.
To get to the state you see in the screenshot, I:
1. Imported the media files
2. Typed a native phrase
3. Typed a Foreign phrase
4. Highlighted  "vietnamese_and_you.mp3 in the import media list
5. Clicked "Add To List.

I was expecting to see info for "Track" and "File" filled in, in the relevant columns after step 5.
I was expecting that I'd be able to click on the arrowhead to the left of the "and you" line in the list and the mp3 would play after step 5.

Maybe your program doesn't work like this, I don't know and was asking.
Thanks
Tony

Hi Stephen, just started trying out your program - looking interesting!
Rather than have long audio file(s), I have very short individual audio files for single words and phrases. I imported about 20 or so files.
I'm having difficulty getting the audio set up ... the only way I seem to be able to get the name of the audio file into the list under "File" is by typing it, and typing the time as 00:00. This can't be right because having done that, if I click on the what looks like a play button at left of the list, nothing happens.

Would it be possible to be able to highlight a media file from the "import media" list and get it entered into the "main" list, with the track time (which I assume is the start time, not duration) set to 00:00 automatically...sort of drag and drop?

Maybe this stuffs up the direction in which you're trying to proceed, in which case, no problem. My usage is as a vocab learner, with emphasis on the sound of individual words (Vietnamese - getting tones right critical)
Thanks
Tony

Creepy, old part is right, but in my defence, it's only numberplate memorization standing between me and senility

Thanks for good ideas. My REAL password actually involves part of a friend's car number plate, which she USED to own (how paranoid is that?)
 What's now making my head spin tho, is that without a priori knowledge, isn't my passPHRASE actually a passWORD? (I hear Baynes calling). I see on various sites, entropy levels are different.
And Mouser, without knowing brute force passphrase cracking methodology, would having the mis-spelling early in the "pass-phrase" improve things?
This is all academic really but I'm interested - I've taken all the suggestions onboard thanks.

First, thanks in advance to any or all responders.. I'll read with interest the comments but probably not add anything to the discussion.
Also, hope it won't engender the controversy my last question caused!!
Q: Is "Remember to pay gas Aug 14" a good, as in secure, password? I know it's good as in useability because I can hide it in plain sight (eg google calendar)
Thanks

If you use google street view to go up the road (away from Ouyen) and then come back, you can see:
a. what looks like the google camera car (I don't quite understand that)
b. work being done on the fence installation.

Funny what you see in the street view. I used to just about live in singapore, but had never been to the Geylang Road area (red light district). So not so long back I thought I'd check it out using street view to see if anything looked almost familiar. As I was moving down the road, I saw a hooker on the footpath (pavement) cupping a presumptive client's genitals in her hand. His face was visible, her's wasn't.

I should take your advice re knowing where I'm taking a photo!

@tsaint: Which town ?  :)
Maybe Manangatang? I was heading towards Ouyen, probably from Narrandera, en route to Adelaide.

He says "nearly", unfortunately. I wish we had @mentions. Tsaint, did you ever get this fully working? Anyone else? I continue to be very intrigued and occasionally very impressed with the results!

No, he gave up and went camping instead! My partner got a job 1500 km away and it's a nice "commute" to see her, with lots of stops along the way

Hi Jesse,
 as I lurch towards my dotage I'm getting less and less social. Spend a lot of time camping in peaceful surrounds. But I still regularly lurk here :)
Thanks

This , on a similar tack, might be worth a look
I had to install Ubuntu and a few other bits and pieces and I nearly (!) got it to work. Someone more tech-savvy than me probably could with probably good results.

Yes, I think so, along with lots of other possibilities....  see IFTTT (IfThisThenThat)

this is an interesting idea.. is there an android app that will monitor an email address and perform actions based on received emails?  if so you could set up something where you EMAILED a designated mail account of yours, and your phone would receive the email that would instruct it to send an sms with the specified contents..

25
Bit late I s'pose, but Xnview (freeware) has a compare tool, allowing up to 4 selected images to be displayed at once. Images can then be removed from the display one at a time to narrow down your choice, with the remaining images expanding where possible to occupy the freed up space.
 Alternatively, you could select as many images as you wanted from the thumbnail view and use the "create strip of images" tool and use the resulting to compare images.
