1  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: on the road again - remote windows access from chromebook, tablet, library-hotel on: March 04, 2015, 01:39:38 AM

After I wrote this, I noticed that PortableApps has a Teamviewer app.
http://portableapps.com/a...ities/teamviewer_portable
After setting up a USB with PortableApps and Teamviewer (easy, except first I want to set it up also for Linux multiboot with utilities to carry with) that will help for anything that takes USB with Windows, especially the library and hotel situation.

Then this seems to help with the Chromebook.

How to Run Windows Software on a Chromebook
http://www.howtogeek.com/...software-on-a-chromebook/

Except .. so far the Airpad did not find the Windows system open (same account, waiting for entering key).  I'll try the Chromebook in the AM.

As long as there is nothing overly difficult in the setup, that is what I meant  smiley .
3  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / on the road again - remote windows access from chromebook, tablet, library-hotel on: March 03, 2015, 09:15:00 AM
The main puter is at home base. While some stuff is in the cloud or synced or portable, the home puter remains very helpful to access.

 Let's assume good wireless access, allowing that the Airpad and Android abilities to work through phone data often comes in handy, especially for map driving gps good natural restaurant finding times.

When I have a good laptop handy, the answer is simple. Either load the stuff, windows and programs, on the laptop. And use Teamviewer for remote access. My Verizon to Eudora email especially stays home and likes remote access.  Yes, I use gmail, but more as an auxiliary, and all my gmail accounts forward to the home base.

At the moment, no good laptop. So what are recommended options for remote access?

1) airpad or android.  For various reasons I see this as an auxiliary use, but I would give one app or web method a try. Maybe we have a thread.

2) chromebook - this would need some web connection, unless I did one of the chromebook fakeoutslike like downloading an app or installing Linux.  Big advantage .. Good mouse and keyboard.  Setting up an ad hoc local printer ...problematic.

3) library-hotel. - here printing would be easier.  Any good web oriented tools? They would also apply to the chromebook.

Thanks for any ideas. Btw, this is written on airpad using wireless at Bean & Bean ... So I am not opposed to tablets.

.
Undue .. oops .. undo ... just undoes the last thing, such as a text change or deletion.  This is more common in word processing programs and is an editing function.  Revert one step.
.
note "Title" centered capability (you can put in dot to create the result now) ....  The Title of the note is left justified.  Esthetically you might like it in the center.  One way of achieving that now by hand is with a dot and then spaces.   A "center title" option would be nice.  Depends a bit on whether the toolbox supports it.
.
========================

IMPORTANT
.
Notes Browser memoboard header (Title, Due, Tags, etc.) layout - default global setting ...
The layout of the columns (Title - Due - Tags) I think are now done memoboard by memoboard.  Generally I want my own specified layout, e.g. I may not be using tags much so that is on the right.  I may want to always have the memoboard column over to the left.  I want to set it up in one spot globally.  "Apply to all memoboards".  (Then it would be nice to be able to change it for an individual one.  But even simply the "Apply to all" would be the real need, I doubt that I would ever change one.)  I did not see this function.
.
In that column for the header that is "memoboard", allow full Notezilla path (folders-->subfolders) ...
this is also important.  In my picture above where the "memoboard" would be "Donationcoder Discussions" I would like the global option to say instead the path, which is -
   My Puter --> "Donationcoder Discussions"
Thus, if I end up with 200 or 500 memoboards, I can find it right away.
.
===============================

Skins be less than global .. e.g. for memoboard (forget this one, "skins" are fine.  I think they are simply really "(additional) Memoboard backgrounds".  ) Is that right?  The term skins usually has a wider use.  No problemo.

Thanks!

As for online, that would be a Microsoft implementation.

Windows in the Cloud?
http://wctechblog.com/?p=3749

They would expand Office365 to include much more.  However, getting Windows in the cloud through a back door, outside
of Microsoft, is unlikely.  

As MilesAhead points out, there are possibilities to run Windows programs outside of the normal platform, on a desktop,
maybe a tablet.

 This reminds me that I should learn some of the tricks for posting pics.
 Anyway, here is the new memoboard page.
 
 Any Notezilla competitor has to be able to give a similar clear visual representation of an "issue".
 OneNote can allow rectangles to hold each note, but my quick check was not too happy with the visual nature of the result.

Architecturally, not possible, Windows apps are linked to the Windows OS.

Chromebooks are designed to get as close to that as possible, by encouraging you to open up apps that are cloud-based from the Chrome browser.  I think it is a good idea for some limited uses, also for  light research and writing on the run, since you can have decent keyboard and mouse and apps in a very inexpensive and light notebook (I paid $125 for mine used, but figure $250.)

They are beginning to kludge "Apps" from Android into the Chromebook (also a Linux dual-boot), but for the full Windows gamut of apps, you need a Windows Netbook or Laptop or Desktop.  Maybe a Windows tablet, you have to ask someone using one of those.

First, the searching.
Notezilla is pretty good on the searching.  
A note browser "answer" comes up to the search, and then you can look at one at a time. Es suficiente, since a lot of Notezilla as a full-blown note systems is based on the tree hierarchy.  

Here is the results of a search for "Donationcoder" on my current Notezilla "NotesBrowser".  
The one note that is showing is the first row, but I can quickly see the 2nd, 3rd row etc.
(My major desired enhancement here is that the "Memoboard" column should have the option to show the whole path to the specific memoboard.  Also I think the titles are not in the search.)

Note that the fact that each individual note can selectively be placed to pop up on webpages is a nice part of the integration ("Windows" on the columns). I am using that aspect more than more.

Next I will show you a new memoboard (page) in action. One that I am just setting up, active notes on Donationcoder threads -- "Donationcoder Discussions".

9  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / has the google book search by time gone bonkers? on: March 01, 2015, 05:32:00 PM
I've used it a thousand times.

google book search
Search tools--> Any time --> Custom range

Today I was looking in google books for "yahweh" in books ...
 (trying to find out the first usages of this name, with the precise spelling)

I also tried "heavenly witnesses" (a search I have done many times).

When I place all the books in the search it comes up fine:
   36,500 for "yahweh"
       791 for "heavenly witnesses"

Then I was limiting the dates ... and generally the books did not come up.
Please, one or two .. try it and let me know if it works for you.
e.g. put in 19th century ... or put in 1500 to 1990.

Temporarily I could use "sort by date" for a fakeout but that would require navigating to the last page.
There is a "reset search tools" but that will undo the date.

This is puzzling since I have used these date searches for years.  
Yes I tried a second browser (Firefox and Chrome) and I used the "reset" and then a redo of the date.

The author Logan had made a point here:

OrangeNote – A Smart Note Taker & Clipboard Manager
http://www.makeuseof.com/...lipboard-manager-desktop/

Feb, 2010
"gave up on the .NET framework because of too many problems with it (performance, memory issues, and just overall limitations and annoyances)."

They said that:

"Update: The developer sent us an email requesting us to put up a small comment saying that the app is again being actively developed. He has also released an upgrade. Check it out"

And that was the April, 2010 update.

I did not see and RTF editor referenced, so I passed for my use.  Also it did not really seem to have a memoboard that was functional like Notezilla.


Steven
11  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: stickies Notezilla memoboard as full-blown personal note system on: February 28, 2015, 06:40:06 AM
Here are three more small enhancements:

Date format in memoboard (e.g. allow date, not necessarily date plus time)
Possibly similar options on the note date, although not an issue for me, shows date only.

Ctrl-F bring up the search box (this is a habit thing)

Search should include the titles (looks like it passes that up now.)

Used the Backup4All forum.
http://forum.backup4all.c...s-to-the-cloud-t1819.html

Tried the suggestion to switch the browser that enters Amazon S3.
Tried Opera and it worked.

Good enuf.  Now I will do the upgrade today (before 3/1).

It is possible that one of my freeware backup programs has similar functionality,
but a backup program that looks solid and saves sets and schedules and such for $20 is fine by me.
The support forum helps.

13  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: stickies Notezilla memoboard as full-blown personal note system on: February 26, 2015, 03:00:37 AM
Here are two more major ones that would make Notezilla visible for prime time, ie. more people would consider it for a full-blown note system.

==========================

6) multiple files available through a File->Open command

Currently the .ini file holds the information given in Advanced-->Preferences-->Advanced

Thus in my system I have:
  DataFolder=D:\Apps\Notezilla\Data
  BackupFolder=D:\Apps\Notezilla\Backup
Instead of the default spots.

I'm not sure if the .ini file itself can be moved (e.g. by a parameter in the shortcut)

So in my Windows 7 system the Notezilla.ini file is at its standard spot:
     c:\Users\(user name)\AppData\Roaming\Conceptworld\Notezilla\

So if I have multiple .db files, I can look at one at a time by renaming data files, and/or renaming .ini files.
A File-Open command would be much more appropriate.

==========================

7) Similar to this in being a functional help, increased versatility, would be a .db merge command.  One that allows one .db file to be added to another, under a new specified folder name. This would allow you to have available very easily a file that you had at another location or another now-dormant computer.

Is there a Navicat style utility for the SQLite .db files?  
Or more specifically something like this:

Database Content Compare and Merge Tool
http://www.altova.com/dat...atabase-compare-tool.html

I plan to try out this solution on test files.

====================

This is very good, at least, for looking at the database structure.

DB Browser for SQLite
http://sqlitebrowser.org/

Although looking at data (again, duplicate test files only) hit some potential snags, eg:

"A table in this database requires a special collation function 'NOCASE' that this
application can't provide without further knowledge.
If you choose to proceed, be aware bad things can happen to your database.
Create a backup!"

==========================

Only today am I trying out the "Skins".

They are explained here:
http://www.conceptworld.c...ins-Downloading-Importing

And the download site is:
http://www.conceptworld.com/Notezilla/Skins

At one point I complained about not having some backgrounds like corkboard, that plaint is now inoperative!  
(Well there should be a corkboard memoboard, which is not quite cartonboard.)

At least when it comes to the notes themselves.
Although I would still like more flexibility on the white background which is the full memoboard background.

You get to applying the skin to a note by the Appearance toolbar button. I had missed using that.

==========================

My first attempt in the cloud is their Amazon S3 implementation.  You end up in an arcane S3 world.  I was able to create the access key and secret access key fairly easily.  Then it wants a bucket, or says it will create one.  Nahhh.. And the error messages are wrong (Backup4all says the name must be unique even when you offer a crazy name that is definitely unique).

"TVfs Error
Bucket names must be unique across the entire Amazon S3.
Please select another bucket name."

Maybe you are supposed to go into the Amazon Dashboard and implement policies, but that does not make a lot of sense (I set up one user in an attempt to create buckets, with similar results.).

This is meant for the common user?

=================

Earlier they used a WebDrive product.  This process is apparently now supposed to be more native not requiring the webdrive thing.

==================

Similarly, Azure/OneDrive is supposed to have a key.  Not very obvious how that is set up.

I'm not going to go with PopTrayU.  The developer is fine, but I hit an error in functioning once and to often I wait with a circular Windows icon. I don't think it is as stable and robust as I need.  This might be a function of the abandon and restart by another programmer history of the open source program.

Pop Peeper and Gmail Notifier Pro both get high marks.  Jeff from Pop Peeper was very helpful on private email.  Both have forums.

16  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Does anyone here use Bitcoins? on: February 21, 2015, 09:59:40 AM

Coming to this discussion late.  Only read the first few pages and this one, so far.

With Bitcoin being used primarily in internet gambling and involving a wasteful set-up application by a geek oligarchy (mining bitcoins) I find it rather an absurd and funky-wrong attempt to have an alternate medium of exchange. With a bit of a ponzi investment element and dubious internals. (There is no there there.)   The early attendees can do good financially if they can find ways to cash out, which is the nature of ponzi.  If they hold everything, they risk everything.

If you want to speculate at this point, it is a bit like day trading, with far less possibility of a sensible strategy. Except, I gather, that you can not afford to make small transactions, due to transaction fees.

And I am a big fan of bullion and real estate as real money and value.  My view: it is hard to say that gold or silver is overvalued or undervalued.  One ounce of either remains at 1 oz a year later. It is the price, volume and confidence in the fiat currencies that varies.  The bullion remains the same.

If you, or a friend or relative, puts some wallpaper money into bullion, it never changes. If the price goes down, that's ok.  If you lose, you win. Since, up to that time, we have not had an economic collapse and hyperinflation .. yet.  Whatever little stash of green is around is still valuable.

=================

If there is a time when Bitcoin has the same amount of convertibility as decent credit card points (transferable gift cards for Target, Bed Bath and Beyond and Barnes and Noble) let me know and I will rethink the above.

Are you saying that you overwrite their OS with the installation media that comes with the hardware?  
If so, do they supply CDs, or do you burn them, or have another source?  If from Lenovo, these are clean unlike the PCs they sent out?

Good tip. My Professional Version 3 license was 2008, and has always been a good program.

19  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: file-by file set backups to the cloud - good tools needed on: February 20, 2015, 09:12:25 AM
I'm going to say, tentatively, that DriveHQ is the leader here.  It has a separate Online Backup program that is quite good. Not as sophisticated as a dedicated backup program, but quite fine. Gives you things like excluding specific file types and folders.  More later as I try to use it a bit more.  This is auxiliary to also having an excellent file manager.

If other programs, related to cloud backup, have something similar, it would be good to know.  I would probably like to have two backup programs running to the cloud with my daily data.

This could be from either direction.  The cloud says .. "use this backup ..". Or the backup program says "we support cloud a-b-c".

One reason that DriveHQ might be the leader is the fact that it has the professional level two-pane file manager built-in as well (separate download). I've found that quite helpful over the years.

I'll try the two main Firefox extensions.  Since I always have Firefox open, it may work well, however for the biz there are other individuals with different habits.  Plus, Firefox extensions have a bit of a quirkiness history with new releases.

21  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / email notifiers (whew) on: February 20, 2015, 02:27:41 AM
Email notifiers seem like an unnecessary luxury, or obstacle.  However, in some businesses there are applications with real critical needs to know about the incoming mail, even quickly.

I thought this would be easy, that a few apps would fit, and I could choose one. However, it turns out that the quirky quotient is high, and things can be a bit puzzling.  Also I really wanted a program that still had support, even a forum, as this was going to be used by compatriots and I did not want it to flatten out 6 months later on new software versions, etc.

There are many features in some programs that I did not care about at the moment.  Working with one gmail account, I bypassed whether they handled a dozen accounts, or a dozen other email vendors, or calendar notifications, etc.

About 5 programs were tested that simply were not ready for prime time.  The best of this bunch was Spiffy.  Others were Kwerty, Popman, Gmail Notifier Plus, Mail Notifier. Another 10 programs were bypassed because they were clearly defunct or had a major disqualification.

I ignored gadget based programs. Multi-Email Notifier from India might be a good program.  However, the surrounding info was too sketchy. And now I see the comments here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTYbgqXnkLY . Google discontinued some program they had.

====================

One neat feature is when the email notifier responds to particularly "labels" within the gmail account. That is a bit of a sleeper consideration for existing accounts.
(My gmail account had already been designed to handle only this important mail.)

Tablet is another issue.  I would like a good one for Androids and Airpads.

====================

3 Programs were left for Windows

Gmail Notifier Pro - Patrik Engstrom - http://www.gmailnotifier.se/
Forum - http://gmailnotifier.se/p...wtopic.php?f=4&t=1875 (my post)
Cost - http://www.gmailnotifier.se/register.php
This may be the richest in overall features.  The post explains why it is currently out of consideration, which for many would be a minor issue.

Pop Peeper - Jeff Meier - http://www.poppeeper.com/
Pro - http://www.esumsoft.com/products/pop-peeper/pro/  (license required for biz use)
Forum - http://www.esumsoft.com/Forums/index.php
Plugin - Skin Notifier Plugin - needed for flexibility
This is very nice, with skins, the architecture can be a bit puzzling, since the skin sort of replaces the traditional notification. I have an email to Jeff about the best set-up.

PopTrayU - Jessica Brown - http://poptrayu.sourceforge.net/  - Free
Forum - https://sourceforge.net/p/poptrayu/discussion/
Plugin needed for Gmail - https://sourceforge.net/p...ssl/files/latest/download
Extension of PopTray - http://poptray.org/index.php - many of the Poptray plugins should work.
Rather plain.  It was a little difficult to set up at first, because of the plugin need to get gmail to work. And also changing some settings. Used the forum.
At this time it is the leader as it is free (we will have 3 or more users) has support and can handle the specific need.

That is the overview, at this time.  The cost is modest for a small business of the first two.  All three have strengths, limitations and weaknesses.

.
If Onenote with desktop functionality was a $49 program, with upgrades every couple of years, I would be very interested.

While OCR (I use Abbyy screenshot reader) and audio integration are nice techie things, I like the rectangle format, eliminating white space.  For me this is the feature that could make it happier than other programs like Rightnote.  Since, so far, I have only found that function in Notezilla in the desktop programs.  (However, for that to have full functionality, the rectangle should be optionally boxed and/or colored.)

I agree that the current situation is somewhat convoluted.  

Desktop
Am I supposed to fake out as a corporate user?   While I am affiliated with some companies that have some Microsoft products, the actual license very possibly would not apply, by the letter of the letter.  Anyway, I am tempted to go that route, to use the latest desktop version, but I have 2007 anyway, but only on my main PC.  Convoluted to the max.

Web
The problems you say above apply.  Plus I like desktop assess.  Its quicker and always with the puter, even while driving on Amtrack! The programs are better.

Evernote.  
Some of the cloud complications.

And I am a big fan of a non-hierarchical approach for bookmarks (Linkman).  However, I have never understood trying to use a mass of glob of notes in that manners.

24  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: stickies Notezilla memoboard as full-blown personal note system on: February 18, 2015, 07:23:28 AM
Hi,

Yep, Notezilla is the only desktop sticky I have found that has a real memoboard implementation. And it can work quite well.  Maybe you have some ideas to add to (1)-(5) above.  Those are the big picture items, I am going to add separately a number of lesser comments and requests.

=======================

General Major Wish List -

(1) May be Too Difficult to Bother

(1) The ability for browser window stickies to work by the url of the specific page, as done by Internote for Firefox  - If you go by what often works, e.g. a site or company name, you can easily find that your needed window has a generic names like "Client Logon". Which you really can not relate to the site or company. If it could be done for Firefox especially it would be neat.   This is as much a vision and wish than a request, as it may not be time-practical.  And it hits the snag of changing browsers and versions and APIs.

On the other hand, one change above that might be relatively easy is a  File-Open capability that brings forth a different set of notes.  Then you don't have to cram every type of business and personal and research note on one tree. Right now this can only be done externally (macro, autohotkey, etc) where you would switch the files outside of Notezilla.

=======================

Here are some general requests:

"Undue" feature

note "Title" centered capability (you can put in dot to create the result now)

Right Click on Context Menu for "New Note"

Reduce the hot area on a url .. it is too easy now to accidentally load a page
  (and/or give a button to turn on/off clickability)

Notes Browser memoboard header (Title, Due, Tags, etc.) layout - default global setting

In that column for the header that is "memoboard", allow full Notezilla path (folders-->subfolders)

Skins be less than global .. e.g. for memoboard

browser back-arrow forward-arrow style navigation within Notezilla memoboard (since it can great crowded in tree)

=======================

25  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: OneNote is now free on: February 17, 2015, 10:28:16 PM
Hi,

I'm comparing the Onenote 2007 that is incidentally on my system with the new Onenote 2013, now fully free.

2007 can be run fully in a home-base desktop mode, while the 2013 free is a cloud item with no home-disk access (other than a type of backup).  
Is there a 2013 paid that is architecturally more like the 2007?  What would be the most economical way to do that, ignoring the rest of Office.

The color is more vivid in the 2007. This might be a question though of modern cloud thinking, and able to be adjusted. (Style-sheet?). Or simply a style preference.

2007 has dropdown menus, the 2013 has the ribbon interface.

2007 comes with three built-in notebooks, one a Onenote 2007 Guide, the other two function as templates, and are rather decent, personal and work.  I might make copies of these and actually use the notebooks.  Is there any equivalent in the cloud ?

Related to this, and also a general question ... can 2007 Notebooks be exported to the 2013 cloud with no difficulty?  
(This leads to a few questions as to whether you are trying to synch, or simply allow external web viewing.)

2007 has each notebook as "tab on left" type of indexing, while 2013 set up an index page that acts as like a cover book.  While I prefer 2007 for speed of switching, the 2013 might have some nice aspects. Oh, the two tabs on bottom left 2007 "All Notebooks List" and "Unfiled Notes" are nice, I don't see an equivalent in 2013.

2007 has a very nice toolbar implementation, which is apparently quite limited within the ribbon interace in 2013.

If you do have the 2007 available, and prefer working from the desktop file, what advantages are there in 2013?
And is there an inexpensive way of having the 2007 home-base utility in 2013?

===========================

From the pictures here:

I see the "Page List" sidebar, yet the word sidebar does not appear in the Onenote help.

The small tabs on the left.
Are those pages moved over from the starting spot on the right? Or something else.

==========================

Additional questions.

Is there any way to get a box line around rectangles on a page? (when it is not in focus.)
Same question about background color inside the rectangle?
Can a whole Onenote page have a background (e.g. corkboard, cream color?)

==========================

Overall, I am rather impressed, I still like the way that you can avoid the white space problem with multiple boxes.
Though I see it has, overall, lots of nice stuff.  I'm not sure I would like it to be too cloud oriented.
