1  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Program to override usual window close button with superfast TerminateProcess? on: March 27, 2015, 06:09:48 AM

You can try SuperF4 (free), http://superf4.googlecode.com/.

It is must have app for me. Since I develop programs, many a times they go into infinite loop. Pressing Ctrl+Alt+F4 instantly closes them, even faster that opening task manager and searching and killing it.

I also use it to close FireFox at times when I have lots of tabs opened and one tab causes FF 'not responding'. Killing FF and then restarting it get me all tabs back and then I close the erroneous tab and have other tabs to read.

mouser you are near what I want. http://hyperpolyglot.org/ has the comparison side-by-side.

But it is grouped in similar type of languages but I want any languages side-by-side. Say I know VB and want to convert an VB app in C#. Logic does not depend on any language, just the syntax I need to know when I am stuck. hyperpolyglot is not allowing for VB and C# comparison. That's why I was thinking of making the sheet and having option to hide columns to get two languages side-by-side comparison.

Or may be there is a website as I want in the wilderness.

skrommel !!

( Though I am not a lost member, I beg everyone to allow me to wish to skrommel. )

I knew you were busy somewhere and will come to us one day cheesy

You do not know, but I am indebted to you. I have learned Autohotkey more from your codes in www.donationcoder.com/Software/Skrommel/ than from anywhere else. I feel proud to say that I have become known developer from my NANY apps due to your help. DC has given me a platform to showcase my abilities.

Though very small, all my DC credits actually belong to DC and you. I am donating mine to DC and hope it will help you to withdraw some of your credits. My best wishes for your family. Please keep visiting.

Got the update mesg window from FARR and updated it.

I have been using FARR since so long (Xp to W8.1) that now it seems like it is inbuilt feature of the OS  smiley

I hardly thing twice before pressing the 'break' key to pop FARR to run any program I need. It has become my habit and I feel handicapped on my friends machine where FARR is not installed. Hey how you run a program ? What ? Start menu !! They look puzzled to me and I can not explain to them.

4wd, I read in Dumster review, maybe, that it has problem in sd card undelete. Anyway since I am just starting with Android not much in sd card now. I have Kitkat 4.4.4. The Lenovo UI is more or less OK for me as of now.

ewemoa, you are right, developing for Android is the reason I got my self the phone smiley, thanks for the f-droid site.

I will try the firewall as suggested, as basically I do not want any app to use my data plan without my knowledge.

I may root my phone eventually, not in a hurry now. Lenevo with update A6000 to Lollipop 5.0, as per their website, but now I am a bit apprehensive. Will wait and watch.

Will be out of station for next couple of days with no internet, will be back by next weekend.

We in India, where date is written as dd/mm/yy,  could have had our PI day next month, if April had 31 days.

31/4/15 9:26:53

Keeping the time before also requires us to wait till 2065 at least.

3:14:15 9/2/65

No PI for us, now Sad

I use PhotoFiltre7 http://www.photofiltre-studio.com/pf7-en.htm, for most of the features you have mentioned apart from IrfanView.

PhotoFiltre7 is freeware and may fulfill your need.

I searched for recycle bin and found that most blog and forums suggested Dumpster

I installed it and deleted one photo from gallery. It showed up in Dumpster and I was able to restore it.
If anyone had used it, please let me know of any problem in using it.

Also I need anti-virus and wifi firwall, need suggestion of apps being used by others.

I liked some of the apps at f-droid, thanks ewemoa, but is it safe to use apps from it ? Any users of it ?

Hi 4wd

I installed ES F.E. and enabled recycle bin, but it different from what I want. It will only put in bin those files deleted from ESFE and not from, say, photo gallery.

I want system wide recycle bin. Any suggestion ?

Hi eleman, thanks for the call recorder link. Yes hardware incompatibility is what I read at most places. So it is trial and error.

Thanks Ath, Evernote is on my list but it is very big with options I may not require. A smaller simple would be better for startup.

PDF readers suggestions are good. Thanks to Ath, 4wd and ewemoa, I will check them.

4wd, I checked ES File Explorer, but no where in its description or website it is mentioned about recycle feature. Also is root required ? as is mentioned in few reviews.

I got an Android phone, finally. It is Lenovo A6000.

Now I need help guidance as a beginner of Android world. I am using Nokia 5230 now and I have some must need apps installed in it. I looked for their alternatives in Google Play and was overwhelmed. GPlay do not have proper search filter like GMail. So it is best to ask the users directly to get the correct app.

1. Backup and Restore - At least photo, videos and contacts, if not sms and notes etc.
2. Undelete or Recycle option - To restore files deleted by mistake.
3. Call Recorder - Simple, record both in coming and out going, with playback. Need it for client job specifications done on phone.
4. Quick note taking - Simple, may or may not have voice note mode.
5. PDF reader - Small just for reading pdf files.
6. Calender task and reminder on home screen - This I found in Lenovo and looks like may do the job as of now.

If free better else paid one will also do. But they must not be very space and memory hogging. Reading the GPlay reviews and descriptions I bookmarked some but still can not say if they will work as advertised.

So I need the help from all Android users here to guide me to the right stuff. Thanks in advance.



12  DonationCoder.com Software / Android Apps / Re: Other app ideas based on WhenLast code on: March 10, 2015, 02:56:39 AM
I got an Android phone, finally. More on it and help required in another thread.

I was planning an Android app for the next NANY. It is similar to WhenLast, so Mouser may make it faster from his existing libraries.

When I do some job, say X, I save the date-time for the job, even gps if possible. After wards I should be able to get answers to following,
1. When I did job X ?
2. Did I do job X in this month/year ?
3. What jobs I did this month ?
4. What jobs I did at this location (gps) ?

I hope you got the point. One example I give is that in India ATM withdrawal from same bank is limited to 5 in a month and also from other bank ATM limited to 3. So this will help me to use separate bank ATM cards if I need more withdrawal in a month without paying fees.

Hi kalos

I have tried many pdf to text word convertor earlier, but lately I am using below two,

Free PDF to word http://www.pdftodocconver...erpro.com/shots.htm?id=fw The website looks like has changed the product name now and also removed the full free version.

PDF to word http://www.free-pdf-to-word.org/ This website still giving most as free.

Both have given me satisfactory results on various PDF files. You may check out which suits you best.


14  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Syntax in Different Programming Languages on: March 02, 2015, 11:04:50 AM
Hi DC Members,

With ref. to
1. Experimenting with Other Programming Languages http://www.donationcoder....70531;topicseen#msg370531
2. http://en.wikipedia.org/w...ng_languages_%28syntax%29
3. http://rigaux.org/languag...tax-across-languages.html

I was planning to make a google sheet with rows having the most common code syntax names and columns with different programming languages and column cells filled with the code syntax of that programming language.

Something like Syntax in Different Programming Languages https://docs.google.com/s...nbre8O8M/edit?usp=sharing

Well the above is just for the starting idea.

Now comes the major point :
To have something like this needs programmers with the knowledge of the given language. I can only see DC members has the knowledge and can fulfill it.

How it is going to help :
Programmers trying to learn a new language can have the two languages columns visible (one being the language he/she know) and learn.

I think this will boost learning. It had helped me very much in my earlier days, like C++ for Basic Programmers.

Now it may be that a similar sheet, website with more features, already exist. Or some DC member already has something like it.

It would be better if we could make a website which asks for the two languages and shows the html pages for them only, no filtering / hiding in a sheet. I do not have expertise on it. In fact I will like the sheet to be maintained by our DC website for all programmers of the world.

I need guide and direction on this. Please help.


15  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Many smart devices are spying on you on: February 26, 2015, 01:56:31 AM
I think it is high time that we understand that we are 'open source' now.

No matter where you are and what you are doing, you are being watched, and we all know it.

1. Wake up and take a walk, you are watched by the satellite and cctv on street and parks, and obviously monitored by your mobile ISP towers.
2. Visit ATM and withdraw cash, yes your face and time with the amount of money is recorded.
3. Switch on tv for morning news and you are recorded by your cable / disk tv provider the channels you are watching and how long. If you have smart tv, then you hand movement and voice control are also recorded.
4. Go to office and your smart card for train / bus is marked for time and place of your journey.
5. Your office marks you at the gate itself from your id card and the duration you are there.

Till now you haven't started your computer but still all your existences has being recorded.

We have smart devices all around us, which are listening, marking, watching and recording us. They know even more than our parents / spouses.

Just keep the towel on.

Very good, Nod5  Thmbsup

Though not required for FARR, your code gave me idea how to disable a hotkey for some programs. Thanks.

Facebook already has this software.

It generates the gift (ad) from our likings, taste, birth date etc., we have provided to it.

So it maintains the database of preference, but keeps it on its server, and creates gifts, but from its sellers. Only sending the gift through drone is due, I think.

21  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Re: NANY 2015 Release: WhenLast (Android app) on: January 06, 2015, 02:32:56 AM
I listed the apps on the google play store to purchase for 99 cents.  I decided to try that instead of listing them for free -- most of the time free in these app stores seems to mean covered in ads, so I thought 99 cents might be a cleaner approach.

Thanks you gave me direction.

All these 'store' has made rotten the concept of 'free'. In most cases the user is paying through his nose in mobile connection for ads or in-app purchase to get one more feature.

We programmers who have been releasing 'free' apps in pure literal sense, now have to face questions from the users. They bracket us in same league.

Though I still do not have a Android phone/pad etc. (she is not allowing me), but I will follow your path for store and allow free from my site.

"Give few days each month in new year for all my NANY apps to enhance them and also work on new NANY app"

This have been my resolution each year since I started NANY, do not know how the whole year becomes last few weeks in December !!

Happy New Year to All !

Pheeeeeeeeew !  cheesy

"I make resolution to take up 2015 NANY many many months before end of Dec 2015."

I can not tell how I had to work hard to keep my family, company and myself happy. This NANY gives me happiness.



Note: I know, my resolution will remain as they had for all these years.

24  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / NANY 2015 Release: Delete After Days on: December 31, 2014, 09:58:43 AM
NANY 2015 Entry Information

Application Name Delete After Days
Version 2.0.0
Short Description Drag and drop files into the basket to delete them after given days.
Supported OSes WinXp and above
Web Page https://sites.google.com/site/deleteafterdays/
Download Link https://sites.google.com/.../deleteafterdays/download

I download many files for work, leisure and checking purposes. Many times I do not get time to check them and they just occupy space in the download folder. When I feel like, I delete them on older file dates. Now some of the download though done today (say), show the original zip/exe date, which may be six months old or maybe some years old.

So the deletion as per file date deletes the ones which I may have download last week.

I needed something where I can mark the files to auto delete after few days, months etc. So I do not have to worry on my folder filling up with old files, as I mostly copy the work related files to their respective folders.

I searched and found there are many who are searching for the same, but till date MS also did not respond.

I made "Delete After Days".

Drag and drop files on the icon on the desktop. It will prompt you for days after which they will be deleted. The files remain where they are and you can copy / move them. If left for more than specified days, they get deleted, automatically.

More screen shots at https://sites.google.com/...eteafterdays/screen-shots

To install, extract the zip file in a folder, say "Delete After Days", and run the "Delete After Days" exe.
