Nice tool, but somewhere along the road it lost its Linux-ability ohmy That seemed like a nice-to-have feature, but _I_ won't be using it that way, anyways.

I do not see that there is anything preventing the user from removing the hard drive from the old PC, connecting said drive to a suitable drive carrier, and plugging the latter as a peripheral device, into (say) a USB port on the laptop.
Lacking technical skills perhaps? Or maybe bravery Grin

You might want to create a %server%-validusers.txt file, by making these subtle changes:

Formatted for Generic Code with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. ...
  2. SET userlist=validusers.txt
  3. ...
and
Formatted for Generic Code with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. ...
  2. :Logoff
  3. findstr /I ^%1$ .\%5-%userlist% >NUL
  4. ...

and having 3 files APPLE-validusers.txt, BANANA-validusers.txt and CHERRY-validusers.txt in the current directory.

You could make it even more fancy by adding a check for common users in validusers.txt, but that seems like a little overkill to me.

First you should make more clear what you want to achieve, as it's totally unclear to me huh

What's wrong with a Wiki page in Sharepoint? You can create a list of links there, easy as pie.
You do need Create and Modify permissions of course.

What type of internet connection would have this usage-model? Most current internet connections are always-on, AFAIK, so no need, or even means, to turn it 'off'.

Despite its name, my tool Excel2Html can be used for this exercise, if the .csv file is converted (loaded) into a .xls or .xlsx file.
And a .html template is plain text, of course.

Relevant DC threads (original Coding snack request and support-thread) are available from the link.

10  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Ethernet cables: UTP vs. STP on: April 27, 2015, 02:43:15 PM
It's to do with the Category of the cable.
CAT 5 is qualified for 100 MBit/s
CAT 5e for 1 GBit/s
CAT 6 for up to 10 GBit/s and requires better signal to noise ratios (10 GBit/s not over the full 100 meters)
CAT 7 for up to 40 GBit/s with even better signal to noise ratios and less crosstalk, using shielded pairs within the cable

More info here: http://www.xmultiple.com/xwebsite-forum24.htm
And Wikipedia on CAT 5/5e: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category_5_cable
11  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Using a batch file to create a hyperlinked png or jpg image. on: April 26, 2015, 05:03:19 AM
For converting an image to base64 I used this freeware multi-platform off-line/command-line Base64 De-/Encoder (no connections, just a happy user). It supports output to stdout so redirecting output directly into the message from a batch-file is easy-peasy thumbs up

My WinSendKeys (DC Thread) can apply 'Paste from ClipBoard' (Ctrl-V) from the command-line, to a specific open Window(title)...
13  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: facebook tracing on: April 23, 2015, 02:17:32 PM
You have quite loose visibility settings allowing any indirect contact (friends of friends?) to access you info, apparently. You are in control, though... FB provides with very strict access, but you have to change that manually.

Be aware that having a (1) directory with ~80,000 files in it will bring Explorer, and other tools looking at that file-list, to a crawl Cry

Well, that's a pitty, PM being discontinued ohmy
I switched when this thread made me aware of it, and prefer it much over Chrome.
I'll now try to switch to Firefox, it seems to need some more attention thumbs up
19  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Seeking a just-right countdown timer application for windows on: April 14, 2015, 03:25:05 PM
-Has some compatibility problems with Windows 8 (error on exit)
-doesn't remember settings (like where the time was displayed) This might be because of the error above.
You might be able to fix that by applying "Run as Administrator" on it, it probably tries to write to protected registry locations. It's from 2008... huh

Bonz, could you please refrain from 'shouting' in the forum, ALL-CAPS is so 1980's huh
Your questions and remarks are welcome, of course.

What else does it bring for that size? It's rather large at nearly 2 MB (imho). Is that because of the development environment used?

23  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Comodo Internet Security -- a cautionary tale? on: April 11, 2015, 11:07:47 AM
I have been using Avast Free for the last couple of years on all my systems, and I'm quite happy with that. Combined with the built-in Windows firewall, and a spam-filter on the systems fetching e-mail, I'm quite confident about security.
I can't compare with Comodo, as I've never installed it, ever, but compared to the, once trusty and lightweight, AVG free, the impact on performance from Avast is barely noticable. Though all the systems involved have at least a core-2 Intel cpu...

That's my  two cents
24  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: LeDimmer replacement? on: April 11, 2015, 04:54:02 AM
CinemaDrape @ http://www.aurelify.com/cinemadrape/ is a good alternative.
Well, I tried both CinemaDrape (CD) and LeDimmer (LD, downloaded today from Softpedia), but running LD "As Administrator" (I have UAC turned off) is much more intuitive than CD. LD automatically only shows the active window, while CD requires me to select the visible viewport, any time I change focus (though I may have misunderstood the instructions, I didn't get it to work as I want).
LD is probably here to stay thumbs up (Windows 7 x64, single screen, Laptop @Home)
25  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Solved: Visual Studio Toolbox Blues on: April 11, 2015, 03:51:54 AM
Is there really anything that exciting in 13 to make it worth shenanigans?
Well, it seems that the WPF/xaml designer is finally working, without the major hickups and bugs experienced in all previous versions... embarassed
