1  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / NANY 2015 Pre-release: Active Text Notes on: December 19, 2014, 03:34:41 AM

NANY 2015 Entry Information

Application Name Active Text Notes
Version 1.0.0
Short Description Display text from a generated text file in a non-interactive mode
Supported OSes WinXp and above
Web Page https://sites.google.com/site/activetextnotes/home
Download Link https://sites.google.com/.../activetextnotes/download


Description
We already have many electronic post-it-notes like notes for our computer. Most work just like paper paper version. Well they do most of the job, we normally require from them. They act as a static object, the text of which are added/ edited by us manually.

Well I needed similar desktop note but active. I wanted it to show the text content from a text file. The text file will get altered either manually by me or from another program. Not a big deal here. Well I wanted more. I want the note to run the program generate the text and display it. But, it should not disturb me. It should do it's work silently and update the text on the note on the desktop. I will, when I feel like, will glance at it to get the information.

My free app "Overlap Wallpaper" gave me an idea. I made Active Text Note, which is similar to it, but shows a text file content.

Features
Active Text Note runs a given program and displays the output text file on the desktop. We can display directory listing of a network folder, auto backup log file text, latest text info. from a url etc.
I made few helper programs for downloading url, html to text conversion, text extraction etc.

Screenshots
https://sites.google.com/...ivetextnotes/screen-shots

Usage
Installation
To install, extract the zip file in a folder, say "Active Text Notes", and run the "Active Text Notes" exe.
To uninstall, right click on tray icon of "Active Text Notes" and select 'Exit'. Then delete all files in the "Active Text Notes" folder and remove the "Active Text Notes" folder.

Using the Application
In settings option set the program to run and the text file name to be read. You can leave program name blank.

Hi questorfla,

I did few work on MS and My Sql for some odd project. I had one database without password and was having trouble to login into the database from the script code. I could login from the Admin console.

Then I added a password to the database and used it in the script. Everything works OK now.

Looks like the password is needed from the script or there is some other way to send the blank password which I do not know. Anyway I hope my experience may show some light to you.

Anand

Well I did some research on it. All below allows boaderless image show.

1. Overlap Wallpaper allows png alpha transparency, but do not have multiple file reload from folder option. Also no gif animation. No command line.

2. Frameless allows png alpha transparency, but do not have multiple file reload from folder option. But it has gif animation, but without the transparency. Also has command line

3. ImageOpen (googled and downloaded) has slide show of multiple file reload from folder option but without the transparency. Also no command line.

So you see all has some feature missing and not fully as required by you.

Either anyone gets updated or you may google and find the one that has all features.

I do not promise now for updating Overlap Wallpaper as too busy with project works.

Regards,

Anand

Hi bandit012345,

I do not know what exactly you want, but you can display a frameless png/gif with transparency on desktop using my freeware app Overlap Wallpaper https://sites.google.com/site/overlapwallpaper/ , no animation though.

See if it fits the bill.

Anand

6  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Google Glass dead, already ? on: November 19, 2014, 06:34:32 AM
I read the reuters and other news on it, http://www.computerworld....ogle-glass-isnt-dead.html

Well I will be very sad if it happens. I was waiting for 'glass' to be pocket friendly, like Android phones now.

People may have other vision for the glass, but I had my own plans.

Since I am a programmer, I was planning to change the view I get of my surrounding as per my preferences. I live in a busy city where dust and rush is way of life. So,

1. When I am at home, my wife looks always 'smiling' to me. Well it is not much work for Photoshop to do it on the fly on the glass. The voice may be threatening, but we can ignore it.

2. My room, looks all 'clean-up'. In fact I should see myself using my laptop near a water fall in Japan. On a beach in Spain will also do.

3. When I go to work, my transport bus should be swanky clean and all the people around me should look smiling and beautiful.

4. Well the list is endless, with my side walk all greens etc.

Please Google, make glass affordable, and leave rest to us programmers.

Regards,

Anand

After I got my first laptop with Win 8, I was finding it problematic to keep tab of the battery status from the tray bar battery, all in white. It did not change color to indicate full or low battery.

A search brought to Battery Delay. Well now I get message every 10th % status and I am happy with it.

WOW! People have already started standing on two sides for this 'driverless cars'.

Well this reminds me when Apple first announced 'IPad' technology. People will be people and corporates will make money.

Well I am more concern about 'programer-less NANY'. GOD save me, if it happens.

I have been using it for a long time. It has helped me a lot in transferring text to my mobile (Nokia 5230, non IOS or Android), via QR reader.

I transfer big text of SMS (festival, birthday etc. wishes) from searched sites, url of a site to check in mobile browser etc. I found it much master to type my required text in the QR box and then QR read it in my mobile.

Really a time saver.

11  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Re: NANY Q&A about what software can be submitted on: October 09, 2014, 04:07:02 AM
Yes that is the irony.

I, myself think of NANY from January but do not start coding till October / November, in fear I may release it and it may become invalid for NANY.

It is true NANY should be for new apps, in fact most forums and websites gives special mention to NANY. But we should also make another, like mouser suggested "See Also", to add those released in that year.

This way programmer like me, may start earlier and save some of their hairs. But they must make one 'unpublished' app at the end of the year.

Well those are my points, others may have better suggestions.

Anand

As an idea, I use http://www.resoph.com/ ResophNotes, with http://simplenote.com/ Simplenote integration. I save files in txt format, so that I can have my data back, even if any one of the above does not work, for some reason.

It has good search and tagging options.

May be some program running in tray is doing it.

Try safe mode and check.

Try closing programs in tray one by one and check. Also check in task manager for any non-standard program.

I like the idea of a special 10th Anniversary Mug.  thumbs up

Perhaps it could feature a drawing of Cody with a long beard and walking with a cane, showing his age.  Grin

Hello !

Cody is just 10 years old. What is he carrying a cane for ?

Hi peter.s

I am curious about the points you mention,
1. BC is unable to treat new lines as "no change"[/li][/list]
2. BC is unable to "detect" changes in paragraph order.[/li][/list]

I am a developer and I can develop a text file compare program. I just can not get the idea what logic I should do to satisfy the point.1

If I treat \n as null, say then whole text file will become one line !

For point.2, how far should I read to get that para order has changed.

Well user requirement do vary and we programmer try to satisfy them, that's why they pay us, but we all programmer are tied by the limitation of the programming logic.

Here I do not think BC has failed. Please point me the program which does it, I will like to check it.

Regards,

Anand
20  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: Please help me find that utility - "Something" To TXT ? on: September 05, 2014, 03:02:48 AM
Got it.

FileNote http://download.cnet.com/...3000-2094_4-10019651.html

Excerpt from the site:
It's supposed to give users a way to add notes to their files, but in reality this application is just a quick way to create a text file of the same name. File Note is added as a new context menu option. When you select it, it automatically creates a Notepad file named the same as the selected file.

To be fair, the operation was speedy and effective, and the newly created text file was conveniently saved in the same location as the source file. However, because the note isn't integrated with the file itself, you'll have to take an extra step if you want to share your notes when you send the file to others.

Anand

DAMMIT!

Thought living on the 30th floor was very private and I could do 'every cool things' on the open terrace.
Now I am more nearer to the lens ! Better live underground.
