The thing with Vim is that it requires you are willing to spend the time and effort to learn to work entirely differently than you are used to. It may be able to do most anything you need, but actually doing it may be pretty hard until you spend the time learning how (which can be said about all editors, but in Vims case there is more learning involved).

I would try installing Sublime Text 3 if I were you. The trial does not have a time limit, all you get is a popup every now and then when saving. It works just the same on Linux as it does on Windows, and it is a very good text editor.

I probably wouldn't buy it though, before you feel confident development is still ongoing.

The only thing I've seen recently was EMET stopping an older version of flash player in FireFox after an ad set something off.

I just got my first call from someone who had gotten dual-bitten by a password logging bot plus (to my amazement) some ransomware.

She was running a (mostly) updated copy of Win7x64 along with MS Security Essentials.

Draw from this what conclusions you will. Cool

The problem is you can't draw any more elaborate conclusions than that MSE did not stop this threat. For all we know, a commercial protection might have been equally useless.

I suppose you could always send a query to their sales department and ask if you're that curious about who won it. But with only a single copy up for grabs I don't think there's much financial incentive for the dev to be playing games over it.
 Cool

The contest wasn't run by the people behind ST itself, but by a guy called Josh Earl who has written a couple of e-books on ST and runs a mailing list with tips.

Just for the record, the download links given so far (v1.1 and v1.2) appear to be for versions of Roboto before the re-design mentioned in the article (check the R K and 1 glyphs for instance).

There seems to be a v2.0 available for download here:

Thanks to CMake it built without problems on Windows here Thmbsup.

To be fair, once you have opened a project folder (which takes a while), it does works reasonably well. The vcs integration is a nice feature.

Unfortunately it does not support bitmap fonts Sad.

Not sure if this has been posted already, but it appears WinPatrol (which often gets recommended here) will continue life with a new developer. The post appears to promise lifetime licenses will be honored:

@Jibz - I have made some adjustments to the icon, please check again.

Thanks for looking into this, but I am afraid this was probably worse than before -- now both the taskbar and the app icons look a bit strange:

@Jibz - Do you mean the font of the notes? The icon on my system is smooth and looks fine, odd... I was thinking about changing the icon anyway.

I mean the font of the text the user is writing in the notes, yes.

The icon for the application in explorer is fine, the icon in the upper left corner of the app is fine as well, but the app in the task bar when it is running is a scaled up version of the 16x16 icon instead of the 32x32 icon. Here is a screenshot with the explorer, app, and taskbar icon for comparison again:

[attachimg=#]

I've seen things like this happen before, and it's usually because Windows loads the first icon from the executable and uses that for everything, if it is not instructed to load the appropriate sizes (usually a question of doing multiple LoadImage calls and filling in both hIcon and hIconSm in WNDCLASSEX).
15  Other Software / Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Re: Note5 on: June 26, 2014, 08:00:51 AM
Would it be useful with an option to change the font used?

Even though the small and large icons both look good, the one Windows uses in the taskbar (think it's 32x32) is pixelated here:

16  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Ad Muncher Becomes a Free Software Program! on: June 26, 2014, 04:21:52 AM
I'll particularly be interested in seeing if the iOS version is pretty good. I don't do much browsing on my phone because there's no ad____ stuff I know of for Safari and I haven't tried too hard to scour for an obscure browser that might have ad blocking in it.

But people are all about the apps these days, and the rash is free versions with ads, to tempt you into the paid versions without them. It would be fascinating if AdMuncher could intercept that "Apple Ad" serving engine or whatever it is called.

There is probably some TOS that prohibits apps from blocking advertisement, like on android.
17  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Ad Muncher Becomes a Free Software Program! on: June 26, 2014, 01:28:03 AM
That is quite surprising. I can imagine it must be very hard to compete with the free browser plug-in solutions, which have the added benefit of being able to filter https. But still, surprising to go to the other extreme. I hope he can keep it clean from crapware.

On a side note, when reading the title of this thread I considered for a second if "Free Software Program" meant free or GPL. I am slightly worried to find the meaning of the word "free" has become ambiguous to me.

Update v2.0.0.4 - http://note5.pen.io

- Fixed the Color Theme editor bug Wink
- If no panel is opened, the switch hotkey now opens one
- Ctrl+1,2,3,4,5 opens the corresponding panel

Please let me know of any more issues or any comments, thanks!

Great Thmbsup.

Just tried running the theme editor, it gives a runtime error 14 at line 163 (in the same way as the main app).

I think there was perhaps a bit too much flash in their flash sale. The free offers were on for such a short time that I didn't manage to pick any of them up.

Edit: reading the previous posts after posting, this should just have been a +1 instead Kiss.
20  Other Software / Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Re: Note5 on: June 25, 2014, 12:49:11 AM
Anyone get a chance to test this version? Any issues/comments?

Thanks for adding the option to configure the next note shortcut Thmbsup.

Could you make it so pressing the next/previous note shortcut opens the first/last note when no note is currently open? This would give a way to open the notes from the keyboard only when running the program.

Also, perhaps a way to directly open a specific note? Perhaps Ctrl-1-5 to open note 1 to 5 respectively.

Some interesting criticism of Vim in Just Use Sublime Text (and HN discussion).
22  Other Software / Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Re: Note5 on: June 22, 2014, 09:23:59 AM
I'm going to keep the arrows, but I'll allow the changing of the modifier (Ctrl, Alt, Shift). Will that work for everyone?

Shift+arrow keys is used to select text. Ctrl+Shift+arrow keys to extend selection by word. Check Guidelines for Keyboard UI Design.

Alt-left/right might be a viable option, it's used for forward/back in history. Ctrl-PgUp/PgDn is perhaps better, it's usually used to change to the next/previous tab.
23  Other Software / Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Re: Note5 on: June 22, 2014, 08:06:04 AM
@Jibz - I think I found the issue. Please download [v2.0.0.2] and try again. http://note5.pen.io

Works now, thanks Thmbsup.

I would like to add my support for using something other than ctrl-left/right to switch note, like cschw says I believe it's a standard way of navigating back/foward a word in text.
24  Other Software / Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Re: Note5 on: June 22, 2014, 06:12:16 AM
Downloaded v2.0.0.1, and I get Run time error 14 at line 228 Sad.

It's quite possible that something on my system conflicts with it, just not sure what it could be.
25  Other Software / Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Re: Note5 on: June 22, 2014, 02:57:15 AM
@Jibz - What version do you have? What were you doing when you got the error?

It says 2.0.0.0. I double-click the program to run it, and it opens the main window and then a dialog with the error message appears. Pressing OK closes the program. I will try the current version when the website works again from here.
