Wow - awesome!!! Much easier to read!  Thmbsup Thmbsup

Back in the day it was just whip up something by hand... all that newfangled CSS stuff came about after I had quit doing that kind of work. Back when I had a copy of Netscape ready to install, saved on a floppy.  tongue

Agent Ransack does not build or maintain an index, it searches on the fly. So it can be accurate (at least when I've used it) but don't expect results fast if you're looking through a lot of stuff. It's most useful if you can narrow down the best place to look.
3  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / HTML table formatting on: January 18, 2015, 01:56:41 PM
So I wrote a routine to pull in some basic "who's where" information from our remote desktop boxes, and I've managed to wrap the output in about the most basic table formatting you could find. For the nonce, the info is there and usable, but it's hardly appealing. Would anyone care to take a stab at making it easier on our helpdesk staff's eyes? The border on the cells is nice to differentiate the columns, but it's very busy. The last time I did any HTML, kernel 2.2 was just coming out... things have changed since then!

Here are a few rows from the table:

Formatted for Generic Code with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. <head><b>RemoteApp Sessions for 2015/01/18 12:52</b><br><a href="desk.html">Remote Desktop Sessions page</a><br><br>click column header to sort by that column - updated every 2 minutes
  2. <script src="sorttable.js"></script>
  3. </head>
  4. <body>
  5. <table class="sortable" border="1">

I know this is a late addition, but happened to see this comment from Gizmo about NetDrive and thought of this thread:

NetDrive is available at http://www.netdrive.net/download.html and is a 49 MB download.  The program is malware-free according to VirusTotal and Web of Trust.  Prices start at $40 after the 30-day evaluation period ends. However, after the evaluation period, the program will continue to work and will allow you a single connection. So if you only need to create one external drive letter, such as to your web site or your Google Drive, the program still remains very useful indeed.

Looks fine to me - it showed two items in my system (both had display names like "clsid:etc etc"). So it runs on Win 8.1 x64 without issue.

I did the refresh a couple times, but I was scared to click the red X while I had something highlighted. Might have kicked off the self destruct sequence?  cheesy

If you purchase a license now, you will NOT have to pay any annual subscription fees, EVER!

I bought a Family Pack which I'll install tomorrow on at least one box. The license email did not mention the lack of future subscription fees, though I guess it's just understood.
10  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Et tu, Sourceforge? on: December 20, 2014, 06:46:10 PM
Yeah, the stuff like OpenCandy ticks me off too.

However, part of that is because if I don't want to install the crapware, I have to read the dialogs carefully and click and check the appropriate spots, even if they are grayed out like they're unavailable.  I think that honestly, I would be slightly less annoyed if the crap-wrapper defaulted to not installing anything extra at all unless you explicitly opt in during the process.  (I can't remember, did OpenCandy start out that way?)

14  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Experimenting with Other Programming Languages on: December 14, 2014, 02:41:54 PM
I'd like to branch out from my current language of choice (Rexx, which I've been using for the last 25 years). Coincidentally I have a need for a small routine written in Lua. Should I just hit lua.org and go through the live demo? I know I ought to buy the book and support the project, but I just wanted something fairly basic to play with at the beginning. Does anyone have some suggestions on the various online resources? Some tutorials can be better than others...

I'm always interested so I looked at the Outpost link. Is it not concerning that the free version is three and a half years old so far?

Eventually, I'm going to go after the whole tube vs solid state thing, too.  I'm both looking and NOT looking forward to that one.

In the end it ain't what any numbers say, it's what your ears tell you. I had a friend who went through large sums testing every variety of tube, solid state, and discreet amps, tuners, D/A converters, and so many speaker systems it made my head spin. He took his reference material around with him to listen to equipment, and when he built his most recent house had his listening room configured to the most appropriate dimensions. He kept saying you don't need huge watts if you have good clean watts.

I have to say his system sounded very nice. However, my first rock concerts, at an early age, included Strawberry Alarm Clock and Black Sabbath, so I couldn't tell the difference. (Strawberry Alarm Clock was so loud, it rivaled the Saturn 5 static tests I used to hear when we lived in Huntsville, AL, during the Apollo years!) My old Denon system with the Philips speakers has worked plenty fine for me for about 25 years now.  tongue

No point organising the fridge, cupboard, suitcase, or any form of storage here - as soon as the wife gets into it any form of organisation goes out the window.

You shouldn't let your wife get into the fridge. That's very dangerous.  Grin

One of our larger clients has core CALs for their 1500 or so workstations, and since that includes the necessary pieces, they've mandated using SCCM/SCEP for A/V and patching. In 15 geographically dispersed (including international) locations. With a single SCCM server. And me, in my spare time, to manage it. Regardless of the fact that SCEP is crap. And that they have to use something else to handle the servers.   wallbash wallbash wallbash wallbash

It's just so ungodly ungainly to do ANYTHING with it. Rube Goldberg would be proud.
19  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Resources for learning Windows PowerShell on: November 29, 2014, 06:42:19 PM
And certainly less complex or expensive than going with MS Systems Center.

I'd rather deploy software manually on 5.25" floppies after swimming through leech-infested piranha tanks than use System Center.

Well, almost.  tongue

I've used small implementations of hMailServer several times for specific purposes. It ain't Exchange, but it works reliably and has a good bit of flexibility.

I'm pretty sure that doesnt do monitoring

For awhile now the FreeFileSync releases have included RealtimeSync. This appears to watch the source and then kick off a batch process when changes are detected. Presumably that batch process would be a FreeFileSync, but it could be anything - you just supply a command line.
23  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Text editor with filtering of lines on: November 02, 2014, 11:37:08 AM
Thanks Shades!

However, when those lines get hidden using TextFX Viz, I don't get the little markers in the margin if I want to see one portion of what was hidden. If I hide the lines manually, the markers show up and work as expected.
24  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Text editor with filtering of lines on: November 01, 2014, 08:42:00 PM
Please let me know if you have any questions or any feature requests for future versions.

Very nice work!

For a feature request, when using the filter bar, maybe it would be nice to be able to see some number of lines of context around each of the found items.
25  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Text editor with filtering of lines on: November 01, 2014, 06:37:36 PM
As info, SPFlite does this easily (and at no cost).

The caveat is that this is a line-based text editor (it's a clone of the IBM ISPF Edit facility, for any other old mainframers). As such it doesn't behave quite like what you're used to. But for certain things, SPFLite can satisfy like nothing else. I have a copy that I fire up when I need to do things that match its strengths.

As a line-based editor, you have line numbers on the left of the display and a command line at the top. Global types of commands (Find, for example) are entered at the top, and directives for one or more lines are entered in the line number area.

Per the original request, once a file is open, at the top you could type in "x all" (to exclude all lines, hide them from sight) and then "f mailbox all" which would locate every line that contains the word "mailbox" and make it visible:

[attachthumb=1]

Any old ISPF Edit user can tell you that it can do things that are impossible in other editors. While that's probably not quite true, it makes a lot of things trivial that would take a lot of work in another editor. And there is definitely a withdrawal when you leave that environment... that's where SPFLite comes in. It is not a perfect clone, but it brings 95% of ISPF Edit and has been extended with additional features (and scripting in Basic, instead of Rexx, which I would prefer).

The free version has an innocuous nag screen that just tells you you're using the free version, and it only shows up more or less every 5th time you use the program, as you're exiting. If you donate (which I have) you get a small utility that fixes it not to display that screen.

As I said, this is not my main text editor, but it is extremely useful to have as a tool. I wish they had a "demo" script written, in the sense that you could follow the script with a sample file and see the unique things it can do.
