2951  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: PHP... is the name self-realizing? on: July 22, 2011, 06:11:16 PM
PHP, which stands for "PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor"

I have gone forth, googled, and seen thus as you say ... But it is just by far and wide to absurd to accept. I shall therefore, take it upon myself to makeup an entirely new word. So I may henceforth insist that that is indeed its true meaning.

PHP: Pugnullfific Hypertext Preprocessor.


While pugnullfific has no specific meaning it is incredibly fun to say...Yes, I have been drinking.

I've been told the only differences between a traitor, a rebel, and a revolutionary are:

  • who you asked
  • whether or not they were successful
  • and the amount of popular support they received regardless of the outcome

I think there are a couple more factors not enumerated, i.e. the timing of the asking, and who is doing the asking.

Nope, that part is completely irrelevant. It is all a matter of observation and people talking among themselves (no power plays or players in sight).

You mentioned Egypt. When the people there revolted and took to the streets, the world at large said Hay, good for you.

Conversely, when the tali-ban decided to make a point it was much less well received.

Tis really quite that simple.

Yes, they both turned up as local, not SUBST.

Hm... Okay. I guess I'll be needing a large FAT drive to test with then. I got a funny feeling that may make a difference.

Thanks guys.

If the Lacie is an external USB drive, why is it getting classified as a Local Disk??

I just turned on an external WD USB (NTFS) drive, listed in properties as a USB device, which turned up in GS as local. Same thing with a WD MyBook (NTFS).

Okay, so it was identified as local and not SUBST then yes?

I'm trying to gauge the scope of the issue.

o_O That's weird... If the Lacie is an external USB drive, why is it getting classified as a Local Disk??

[Have possible sketchy idea]

What is the model number on the Lacie? And is there anything special about its configuration?

Here's a SS of my ThumbDrive's properties dialog overlayed with GotSpace. The ThumbDrive is subjected to the same code level tests that the Lacie is so they should be getting treated the same.

[attachimg=1]

Can you send me something like that of the Lacie?

Thank you.

Whenever people come to the realization that they are being denied due process and equal protection under the same laws they are ordered to obey, their only recourse is to either reform the system they live under - or rebel against it.

Bingo!

It is, in reality, the people that are angry. As in "We the people". And in abiding by the law of averages...Many of those people accidentally just so happen to be really good with a computer (hehe). And seeing as none of us are really inclined to "take it" lying down given the nature of the beast which is mankind. Something is gonna have to give. Hence, being that the self elected target is a class that makes most mules appear quite accomodating...Slightly more extreme measures are required to get their attention. Necessity being a mother and all that.

If you want screenshots of My Computer or other windows that might be relevant for you in testing this, let me know.

Yes, please do. I need to workout how to replicate this. Is the partition on the Lacie FAT, or NTFS?
2959  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Win 7, XP mode, & other first install queries on: July 22, 2011, 06:59:16 AM
I would wipe the drive and start from scratch.

Me 2.

Ok, so I tried out the latest version. Looks good, but eh...

Why is it saying that my external Lacie USB hard drive from a few years ago is substed? Good sir, I am afraid you've got a bug somewhere. smiley

That is weird. considering it would have to be reporting its attributes as a directory. I'll have to pick at that one for a bit ( and figure out how to test it).

Also, the OK button in your settings dialog is broken, meaning that I can't try any of the other views.

Yes (actually none of it works), that part of the it ain't done yet function. Wink
2961  Special User Sections / N.A.N.Y. 2012 / Re: NANY 2012: Got Space? Disk Utility. on: July 22, 2011, 06:38:16 AM
Thanks guys. I gotta work on the (partially roughed in) settings dialog now. I'm thinking of making it an option to store the settings in either an ini or the registry for portability (with the ini taking precedence), sound good?
2962  Special User Sections / N.A.N.Y. 2012 / Re: NANY 2012: Got Space? Disk Utility. on: July 21, 2011, 09:39:33 PM
I have to say that this is an exceptional program

Thank you!

I just uploaded a new build that should eliminate those pesky error messages for ya.

Getting exceptions due to empty drives.
So, refresh creates a loop that has to be forcibly terminated.

FYI Some virtual drives (HIJ), legacy floppy support is on (A), card reader (N), SATA opticals (UV)

 Okay, just to make sure we're on the same page:

Are the only drives that are throwing errors the two removable drives A: & N:??

The optical drives (HIJU & V) both SATA & Virtual should all be fine. Yes?

I don't have a card reader to test with but the floppy seems to be alone in its intent to creating mayham.

Then again, a substed drive is little more than a small mirage, so I'd be in favor of just noting '-' as the Capacity just to get rid of any confusion regarding the matter.

Good point, future builds will incorporate this distinction - I just added the code for it to the project - So it'll be there for the next update.

Feature request:
I have a subdirectory of my D: drive, SUBSTed to drive F:. This shows them both of type Local, with all the same figures. Could the type show 'Subst' or 'Mapped', and optionally where it is mapped to?
Done. See updated SS (and download) above. SUBST drives now show as type SUBST, and are not added to the total system drive space numbers.

I've never been into overclocking, and I'm not up on the latest hardware. But I have had really good luck with the Mushkin Silverline memory kits. Memory can make a big difference in how a machine feels.

I just put 2 sets of these in my box at the office (for a total of 4GB) and the difference is quite noticeable when multitasking heavily.
2968  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: FBI Arrests 12 in 'anonymous' raids on: July 21, 2011, 03:59:12 PM
High heels?

40, I'm ashamed of you ... they go with the FBI jacket (founder of the FBI was a rumored cross dresser...)
2969  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Win 7, XP mode, & other first install queries on: July 21, 2011, 01:26:33 PM
The down side to having done this 100s of times is all the details become second nature so one forgets to mention them.  embarassed

Start the machine with only one disk installed, the one you want Windows on. You can use the Windows setup program to delete the now booboo set of partitions and start over cleanly with only the 100GB partition and the 100MB boot partition on the same drive.

If you leave it split up the way it is now it'll bite you in the ass down the road when you start trying to troubleshoot something.

For a second there (when I saw the title) I thought this was regarding a technical book about how to use FaceBook ... I damn-near came unwound when I saw that.

Hay for the next Halloween party I think I'll wear an Guy Fawkes mask, an FBI jacket, and high heels ... That aughta keep them guessing for a bit.
2972  Special User Sections / N.A.N.Y. 2012 / Re: NANY 2012: Got Space? Disk Utility. on: July 21, 2011, 11:50:37 AM

I did see some of that (with Floppies) on Win2k in testing but not on XP and above. I can't quite tell from the SS, are you XP?


That was dumb of me, I should have specified: XP-32 SP3.

That's ok, I didn't notice the errors on my VirtualPC XP because I didn't realize it was reading the disk in the host machines A: drive. So that part of my initial test was completely invalid. (Tehehe - wallbash)
2973  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: What are good sunglasses (brands)? on: July 21, 2011, 11:43:44 AM
Any of the optical shops in your area should have a fair selection of decent frames. I've also seen some quality eyeglass frames at flea-markets - Usually from an optical shop that was dumping old stock (which a friend of mine does). They're brand new, top dollar, high quality, frames that just sat on the display shelf too long without selling.

Note: An eyeglass frame that you would typically pay $300 for, actually only cost the store about $10 to put it on the shelf. The markup is astronomical because they have to sit on so many frames hoping that somebody will like one well enough to buy it.

Why settle for just one OS when you can have several? That would allow you to set up virtually any host environment you want to test any software that catches your fancy. And without running the risk of screwing up your machine.

+111  cheesy


@f0dder - I saw that one coming (hehe). Here's one of my favorite examples Jasc Image Commander written in 1996, running perfectly on Windows 7, without using any compatibility mode support.

Hm... Mapped Network drives will show up as type network (Drive N: in my SS above). SUBST'ed drives I'm not sure if there is a way to detect them. I'll play with it a bit tonight and see if I can concoct something that will identify them (nothing native exists in the API for that iirc).

Thanks for the input.
