Man, I used to love that thing ... I think it was called F-note (short for file note).
It was just a context menu item that showed up for all files that would put an empty text file with the same name in the same location as target file.
I search for find it. Do you know the official site or any other site to find it?

Sorry man, I wish I could tell you...but I don't know where to find it either.

huh I read this post last night, and STILL can't see any use for this type of thing lol  Anybody wanna explain how this would be remotely helpful?  I mean...It shaves like 2 seconds or 2 clicks from doing it manually (By either creating a new text document then copypasta the name into it, or type the name manually...)

It's a matter of convenience true, but when it is something you do frequently - extra X clicks * 100 - then it becomes quite handy. Back when I did a lot of downloading, I liked to leave myself a note with the particulars of a download that I wasn't likely to have time to investigate soon. This was necessary since many of the things I download could make a rather large mess is set off accidentally.

Hi guys, before many years i have use a tiny free utility that creates a text file from any windows file.

Man, I used to love that thing ... I think it was called F-note (short for file note). It was just a context menu item that showed up for all files that would put an empty text file with the same name in the same location as target file.

AbteriX's solution looks like a hit, as it will produce the same result.

If you wander by the local Humane Society, you might consider stopping in. Our local HS (where I volunteer) frequently has many cats of all ages ... And it's not always the pet that needs/gets rescued.. Wink

+1 to both of the above as contagious anxiety infects both sides (cops vs. parents) causing the situation to escalate when they each start to play to their respective audiences.

The Alsatians - Five honours and a 175
not sure what year - late 70's, early 80's

Side A on a 45 ... That's gotta be early to mid 70's tops. ...And another bad sign (that dates it) I suppose would be that I like it. Wink

some people Say men who ride Hondas also ride other men lmao...

Adds a whole new meaning to "Taking it like a man" when you're in the position where screaming like a girl seems "appropriate". ...So now that that's gone way too far...

Seriously, even though those in my crowd tend to say Rice Rocket with great derision. it is both well known and understood that they are quite good at what they do. I worked in a motorcycle junkyard straight out of high school back in the early 80's. So I spent plenty of time turning wrenches on all of the offerings from the big 4 in Japan, the Britts, the Italians, HD, and some others I don't recall at the moment. Honda makes a damn fine and very well designed engine ... You'd do well to rely on one.

SJ...How do you get anywhere?  Are you not constantly sat at the side of the road fixing your Harley? Wink

Nope she runs just fine, as did the other two before her going all the way back to the early 80s when I got off rice and never looked back (much to the relief of local law enforcement..).


I am looking for a Sports/Sports Tourer style ride

Ah! Nuff said ...(totally biased answer)... Excellent choice (my bike pictured above is Harley's version of Sport Turing).


When it comes to the 125cc, I won't be able to get a huge amount of speed as we are very strict on power output available for learner riders, and seeing as 125cc or lower are mainly sold to those riders, they are built specifically with those regulations in mind.

*snicker* ...We had a 5 break horsepower limit back in the day here too ... But since it was basically impossible to enforce much latitude was had by all. Besides, it's all about the gearing...and the Japs are really good at getting tons of power out of teacup engines. In an 1/8 mile race I'd still put my money on the 125 (e.g. they're fast - really fast off the line).


I am leaning currently more towards the Varadero 125.  I am thinking this purely because of the size of the bike itself.  It is much taller than normal 125's and looks rather comfortable and not a 'pocket rocket' in the sense that I am not going to be in over my head with no real riding experience.

Somehow missed that pic earlier. It does have a more relaxed seating position, and shades of the Enduro style with a bit longer travel suspension so it'll probably handle fairly well off road to. It should easily be the most fun mount out of the options listed above (and it's a Honda).

I started riding on the street in 1977 - Here's the wife and I on a poker run last month:

[attachthumb=1]

...So yes I have a preference for Harleys...but they don't (currently) make a 125cc anything.

I can't really speak effectively about specific models as I haven't really kept up on that much since the late 80's. But as far as brands go: For the Jap bikes I've always had a soft spot for Kawasaki, but Honda has a solid reputation and track record for reliability ... Yamaha and Suzuki, not so much. You basically can't go wrong with a Honda. They rocked the industry back in 1968 with the first CB750k, and have maintained a respectable reputation ever since.

Are you looking for a sport bike style ride...or is that all that is available these days? The do have a wee bit of habit of attracting the wrong kind of attention...and they're not as comfortable on longer rides as something with less aggressive ergonomics (like a cruiser).

Back in the day we used to say that anything under 750cc was a girls bike (we prided ourselves on being assholes back then..). But the reality (especially these days) is that more people get killed o the smaller bikes because they don't realize just how fast the things really are. 0 to 60MPH in the sub 4 second range is normal...and 100MPH doesn't take much longer. So don't worry about looking funny on a smaller bike. Because it's far better to be laughed at than cried over in a casket. smiley

164  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Finding the path of a file on your computer on: September 01, 2014, 12:37:37 PM
There seems to be one rather critically salient point that is getting missed here. In that all of the recent file activity/MRU lists deal with sessions that have already been closed. The OP appears to be more interested in verifying what the target(s) of file I/O sessions that are currently active is/are...before the relevant application is closed. Which is when it would be committed to historical MRU style lists.

I want to be sure I can find it again before I feel I can close it.

@SJ:  I read where others have found problems like that. However I don't have the tools oreequipment to test it unfortunately.

It doesn't take anything fancy. Just a couple of straight pins and a volt meter. Stick the pins through the wire (1 for each conductor), connect the volt meter, and see if the voltage drops off badly when you plug in the router.

You're not looking for any real specific variance, you're just trying to see if it hits close to zero under load ... Hell lacking a volt meter, you could probably just use a low voltage (like 12v) light bulb for the level of accuracy the test would require. I've had to do worse in a pinch.
166  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: My Stinking, Rotten ASUS Router Died Overnight! on: August 29, 2014, 06:44:52 AM
Sounds like there is a problem with getting the required power to the router. Open the box and check if a capacitor (or other component) blew in the section where power is converted from AC mains to the required DC voltage (usually 5 or 12 volts).

Working from this angle it couldn't hurt to verify the output of the "wall wart" power supply. Chances are good that it's on the edge and dieing under load.

That principle could well be in action with these "moving rocks" also.
Empiric method. Innit great?

You betcha! Saves endless speculation and "explanations" of how it had to be aliens and UFO technology that made it possible.

This rube has made a career of it:
 (see attachment in previous post)

Huh? But it was. The article is just yet another colossal government cover-up to hide secret Pleiadian anti-gravity technologies that they got from a downed UFO in New Mexico in 1957. (They've been unable to locate the downed spacecraft in the desert in the article - that's the real culprit here! It probably crashed hundreds of years ago and is still pumping out anti-grav fields from it's worm-tractor propulsion drives.)


Oh Yeah! Much better ...(Damn Heretics)... I'm gonna go with Renegade's version on this - Mystery saved - Good man!

Split zone DNS - which requires zero moving parts - would allow the target's name to resolve to the internal IP at the office, and the external IP when not.

I ran into a banking institution yesterday that did not allow special characters or spaces, but did required a number be included in the user name.

Like the outcome of that isn't going to be predictable as hell ...(y0ur N4m3)... Derp!

If a username/password is actually printed on paper, then it makes sense to not include beginning or ending spaces. But with the incredible invention of monospaced fonts, there's no reason why "a     b" couldn't be a valid username or password. I have never understood why "spaces" aren't allowed.

...And then just for a giggle, I turn on the news this morning to find out that said banking institution just got hacked ... Wow, who'd a thunk that would happen.. undecided

173  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / How Safari, Chrome, and IE handle SSL on: August 27, 2014, 06:57:03 PM
So I was working with a client today, trying to get their Gmail account forwarded to Exchange Online. They were using their preferred Google Chrome browser to access their Gmail account to perform this seemingly simple action ... But it kept failing..

The error message was completely uninformative, and seemed to imply that the address to be forwarded to was not valid for some reason. However the address was indeed quite valid.

So I had them open IE in in-private mode to ensure a clean browsing environment. In the hopes of at least gleaning something in the way of an at least somewhat informative error message. IE handily obliged, and informed us that the certificate being provided by the next popup window was not valid. So Google's browser was rejecting the certificate that Google's own mail server was trying to use ... Impressive? ...Not!

Now here's the really sad part. Knowing that the client had an iPad, I told them to try and perform the same action using the Apple Safari browser ... Because it's security was such total crap that it would most likely accept anything ... And horrifyingly I was right. It sailed straight on through like it didn't even bother to look at the cert let alone ponder it's validity.

FireFox was not readily available for this test...(so wasn't included)...but I did find it rather darkly comical watching Safari fail a security check in such a spectacular fashion.
