1  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: Req: (Autohotkey script ): auto unzip zip files in a folder recursively ? on: August 28, 2014, 03:21:47 AM
Slightly different request, Skwire....  Instead of asking for a destination folder, and creating a different directory structure.

I would prefer that any archive simply be replaced with an unarchived folder, or the contents of the archive.  In place, in present directory structure.

This is what the old program unziplify did (no longer available, and apparently stopped working due to some Windows system upgrade).

What do you think?

Thanks!

Excellent!

Skwire, another winner.

Definitely cool, Chris.  Amazing that you were able to come up with it so fast.  Great going.  Everything I asked for, and more.

Thanks to 4wd and wraith808 for your suggestions.

Chris, only one question remains.  Certainly I can have multiple folders of MessagePop -- each one for some particular message.  Not a problem.  But let's just suppose a user wants to store *five* messages, and doesn't think of creating five different MessagePop folders.  What might you suggest to that person?

As said, not an issue as far as I'm concerned.  But just a thought.

Thanks again, Chris, big time.

4  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / DONE: Basic Pop-Up Notice/Reminder Window on: July 14, 2014, 02:28:47 AM
I'd like to use the built-in Windows Scheduled Tasks to put in certain reminders.

When a particular date/time arrives..., a window will pop up on the screen, with text.

Characteristics of the pop-up window:

-- Centered on the screen
-- Regular window with x in right-hand corner that user can press on to dismiss
-- Ability to control font size.  Would like a large-sized font -- perhaps 40-point
-- Possibly allow for setting background color -- perhaps a nice light blue

Ideally there would be an .ini file, in which one could place the message text, and the above parameters, like font-size, background color, etc.

As this request seems pretty basic, I'd guess there already exists such a program.  If that's the case, please tell me.

I don't want any scheduling, etc., as Windows Scheduled Tasks already handles that.  What's requested is just a very basic pop-up window with text.

Thanks much,
Nicholas Kormanik

Mission accomplished.

FastCopy did the trick.  Using following parameters:  Buffer Size=64 MB; Max I/O Size=8 MB; Use OS buffer for reading.

No hiccups.  "Job Finished" message at end.

Thanks for all the input above, folks.  Greatly appreciate it.

6  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: SOLVED: Copy massive folder/file directory.... on: June 23, 2014, 12:15:07 AM
Good idea, Skwire.  I sure could use a clue or two.

And, lanux128, disk scan seems totally reasonable.  What I'm actually copying from, though, is a mounted Acronis backup (disk image from another computer, old XP system).

7  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: SOLVED: Copy massive folder/file directory.... on: June 22, 2014, 11:35:44 PM
Teracopy chokes after as little as 10 gig.  Consistently.  Every time.

Just tried FastCopy.  Went into the other room to eat dinner.  Came back and computer had rebooted.

Good grief.

8  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / SOLVED: Copy massive folder/file directory.... on: June 22, 2014, 09:08:20 PM
Task seems pretty straight-forward:

One hard disk.  Two partitions.

On Partition 1 is folder PF1.  On Partition 2 is folder PF2.

In PF2 resides a complicated folder-file-structure set totaling 400 gigabytes.

Challenge:

Copy contents of PF2 to PF1.

Results must be PF2=PF1.  No errors.  Same total number of files and folders, as seen in Windows Explorer, Properties.

=====

System is Windows 7, 64-bit.  8 gigs memory.  Plenty of room on hard disk.

=====

Problem is, Windows chokes.  Gets part way through the task, then stops.  Computer sometimes automatically reboots (what an a**hole!).

As you can imagine, unless the task gets 100% completed, with some final message saying so, trust and confidence is shattered.

I've been searching for answers and other possible programs to use.  So still hopeful.

Just wanted to put this thread out there.  Any thoughts and observations welcome.

How about that.  Well, another reason to upgrade to W7.  Hmmm.

No worries about kludgy.  Simply works is all I care about.

Super idea, not only for me, but for others out there.  As said, surprised no one has accomplished this before.

10  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Efficiently view set of .htm files, one after another on: May 09, 2014, 12:15:17 AM
Quickly made it through all 1000 .htm files stored on hard disk..., and without a single error message popping up.

So, being able to handle URLs would be frosting on top.  Not totally crucial, as it appears there's more to it than one might think.

11  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Efficiently view set of .htm files, one after another on: May 08, 2014, 11:47:23 PM
Yes, consistently.  I only tried a handful of URLs, though, so far.

I'll PM you one to begin with...

12  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Efficiently view set of .htm files, one after another on: May 08, 2014, 07:09:12 PM
Mass HTM Viewer does seem to work better now on stored .htm files.  Thanks!

And great to see the inclusion of URL links, too.

Appears URL links are trickier for the embedded browser.  Sometimes a message appears in status bar at bottom... "Waiting for...."  And that never ends.  Web browser freezes.  Have to use Windows Task Manager to kill entire program.

Other websites with no status bar message simply cause Mass HTM Viewer to freeze up.  Have to, once again, use Windows Task Manager to kill program.

13  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Efficiently view set of .htm files, one after another on: May 05, 2014, 09:21:36 PM
Wow, that's sure beats dragging and dropping, Skwire.  And so fast acting.  Views are instantaneous.  Thanks very much.

Some of the .htm pages apparently give Mass HTM Viewer heartburn -- an error message pops up wanting to know if the 'script' should continue.  Most pages are fine, though.

Hope you can do your magic with URL files (web bookmark files) as well.

Great work, Skwire.  Another winner.

14  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Efficiently view set of .htm files, one after another on: May 03, 2014, 02:07:36 AM
MilesAhead, I made it to "cheesy"....

Thank God for programmers.

15  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Efficiently view set of .htm files, one after another on: May 02, 2014, 04:54:12 PM
Skwire, not an issue at all, from my standpoint.  I'd love to see it.

What mouser suggests -- a list of .htm or url link files at one side of screen, arrow down or up to view the .htm files in the other part of the screen -- sounds good.  Only issue there would be giving up the screen real estate that the list of files would require.  But, still, nice idea.

Surprised there isn't already a way to do this....

16  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Efficiently view set of .htm files, one after another on: May 01, 2014, 08:01:27 PM
I have a set of 1000 .htm files in a folder.  I'd like to quickly and efficiently view each of these in my web browser (Chrome), one after the other.

As of present I drag each file onto the browser window.  That keeps only one tab open and active.

x1000 drags.  What a drag.

What I would prefer..., is to use, say, the up-arrow key or right-arrow key to automatically bring next-in-line .htm file in.

So, just single press, arrow key, next file loaded, in single tab.  Arrow key, arrow key, arrow key.

Easy peasy.

I do this with images in an image viewing program.  I'd like to be able to do the same with .htm files.

(and, ideally, a set of web links in a folder as well)

Does anyone know of a way to do this?  Or some other great approach?  Seems pretty basic, huh?  Surely others have seen the potential utility.  And, if not, maybe someone can write a little program?

Thanks much.

Well, I use my mouse for highlighting (mostly from Internet sites), and copying.

To test, I changed mice.  Same result.  Anything I copied appears 3 times in ClipTrap.
18  Special User Sections / N.A.N.Y. 2010 / Re: NANY 2010 Release: ClipTrap on: April 22, 2014, 12:25:12 AM
Nope.  I've replicated the issue many times.

But so far I haven't tried disabling other running programs.  That would be the next thing I guess I should try.

Thanks, though.
19  Special User Sections / N.A.N.Y. 2010 / Re: NANY 2010 Release: ClipTrap on: April 22, 2014, 12:14:02 AM
ClipTrap was working fine since you originally created it.  This issue seems new.

I'm pretty sure if others had this problem you'd have heard about it plenty.  So I assume it's something at my end.
20  Special User Sections / N.A.N.Y. 2010 / Re: NANY 2010 Release: ClipTrap on: April 22, 2014, 12:11:32 AM
No to both questions.

For some weird reason when I copy something ClipTrap is pasting to itself multiple times.  Two or three times.

Below is an example:

Added configurable hotkeys

Any ideas what's going on?

Thanks.

Fully-faceted gem here, Skwire.  Chris has definitely come through.

I hope others might use EyeSnack.  Not as I'm using it, perhaps.  But maybe something for a toddler to play with.  Who knows.

Thanks again, Chris!

23  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: Blank full-screen background, solid movable circle replacing cursor on: March 25, 2014, 01:37:41 AM
Chris, you've come through again.  Thank you very much.

Your program is preferable to the above mentioned Sysinternals program.  Sysinternals is a bit more bother exiting from (getting it out of system tray), whereas yours simply is the esc key.

If you feel like it at some point..., you could use, say, a light grey background.  But your black works as well.

Great job.  What a champ!

24  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: Blank full-screen background, solid movable circle replacing cursor on: March 24, 2014, 01:31:17 AM
For anyone following this thread and curious.

Found a program that comes close to what I was asking for:

From Microsoft's Sysinternals.  ZoomIt.

http://technet.microsoft....-us/sysinternals/bb897434

Execute ZoomIt.  In system tray..., right-click icon, Draw.  Then press the 'w' key.

Result is a red dot that can be moved around on a white background.

I then used a separate macro program to move the red dot around as wanted.

Still not exactly what I was asking for.  But close.

There may not be a positive correlation between "eye exercises" and "rapid reading."

However, I want to give it a go, just to see for myself.
