Oh, thanks for pointing that out, and my apologies. I had put it in the image (JPG) of the canvas, and had intended to but forgot (was distracted by events at home) to put it in the table at the front as a clickable link as well.
The first link I came across when doing the DuckGo search for it today was: http://ript.en.softonic.com/
Have put it in the table now.

Intro and Overview:
RIPT is a shareable (with other RIPT users) scrapbook-clipping program.
I thought I'd publish a review of this forgotten, elegant program for those who (like me) might find an occasional - if not frequent - use for it. I don't really need it now, as I tend to use:

Ript: Software Design & Development
Before there was ever such a thing as Pinterest, there was Ript.

"I want you to make an application that doesn't look or feel like an application." Those words, spoken by Oxygen's CEO Gerry Laybourne, guided the extremely talented Agile development team I worked on while we designed and developed Ript.  

Ript is (read was) a free Windows desktop application which was made available for download via the web. The target audience was women, age 18-45, that were smart, savvy, early adopters, shoppers and collaborators.  With our focus on women, we were driven to surpass their user experience expectations and created a useful tool that was playful and purposeful as well as simple, elegant and fun.

It mimics the acts of ripping, piling and arranging. It's part scrapbook, part visual to do list (or to buy list), part collaborative tool. You can drag and drop any type of image or text from an internet site, or your directory structure, and arrange all of your assets any way you see fit. Then share or print them.

We had tons of fun designing the application as well as collaborating with the TV department to create spots that captured the essence of the app (videos below).

We even brought in John Maeda to work with the team for a day, expand our thinking, and to give Ript a test drive.

After NBC Universal bought Oxygen, the project was left to rot on the vine. Then along came Pinterest.
________________________________________________

The Good:
Potentially a very useful little program. Seems to work flawlessly.

Needs Improvement:
(No notes on this. The software has apparently been abandoned and is not being maintained.)

Why I think you should use this product:
It might be just what you were looking for!

How it compares to similar products:
I know of nothing similar to RIPT.

Conclusions:
Could well be worth your giving it a quick trial.

^^ Making use of some odd bits and pieces to get my daughter another laptop (I just destroyed hers with a tea spill), I have just built up an old DELL Inspiron laptop (Intel Centrino Duo CPU), fitted with an old 120GB hard drive from a dead Toshiba laptop, and a new/unused Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit.
I have been running it with UAC ON and OFF, and I had no problem in adding the Comments and Tags columns into Windows Explorer. The same columns show up in xplorer² also.

This is the first time I have ever installed/used Vista, so it was all a bit of a discovery for me. Seems a lot like Win7. Or, more correctly, Win7 seems a lot like Vista.

I recall using DESCRIPT.ION files - I think it was under 4DOS, which I used a lot at one time.

Added note for Calibre v1.32  (latest).
Calibre now seems close to a Nirvana state in terms of breadth and scope of document library and reference management, and support for reading/viewing on various different reading devices.
The automation of document meta-data collection from across the Internet is superb.

@rjbull: I don't really have any useful suggestions as to how SAN could help you with the coupons problem. It's an interesting puzzle.

By the file's Comments field I mean the "Comment" column that you can add in Windows Explorer (Windows7).
In the DCF discussion: IDEA: Allow commenting of files in directory listing
 - I described it:
...I use xplorer² file manager (Windows Explorer replacement). That has 2 comments fields - one (A) seems to be peculiar to xplorer², and the other (B) is a system one. For a JPG file, if you write/edit a comment in (A), it appears in (B), but it does not appear in either the EXIF or IPTC info of the file.

xplorer² has this note about using Comments:
Quote
File comments rely on an advanced NTFS feature called “Alternate Data Streams” (ADS). Imagine a file as a kind of "folder" that has a stream for the regular contents and secondary streams for other information, including comments. When you move the file around, all these alternate streams are silently carried along.
What that means is that if you run a file backup to a non-NTFS disk, then you will strip off the ADS (Comment) data [in the back-up copies of the files].
There is no manager for the Comments, so you have to display them in the file manager, though xplorer² says you can export the comments and file names to a spreadsheet for analysis. ...
__________________________

Does that make sense to you?

I am finding that the Comment field (for most files) and the Tag field (in image files) are potentially two very useful tools for increasing and storing file meta-data. I just wish they were easier to use and get into an information management database.
6  News and Reviews / Mini-Reviews by Members / Re: Stick-A-Note + Universal Viewer - Mini-Review on: April 10, 2014, 09:26:01 AM
^^ Will that give @rjbull what he seems to require? I'm not so sure that it will.
For example, I have a SAN for the "About" window of the ATI Tray Tools utility.

The SAN file is SaN_About.txt, and it contains:
-------------------------
[APP]Stick A Note , 2.1.0[/APP]
[TITLE]About[/TITLE]
[NOTES]ATI Tray Tools v1.7.9.1573 (still latest as at 2013-07-03).
Latest version from "old" site page:
http://downloads.guru3d.c...load.php?det=733#download
From "new" site page:
http://www.guru3d.com/files/index.html[/NOTES]
-------------------------

This same SAN pops up on various other windows with the string "About" in the window title and which are nothing to do with the ATI Tray Tools utility - e.g., whilst editing a file called About everything.text or Not About.txt. Whilst this is not a problem per se for me, it does serve to illustrate that SAN does not attempt to discriminate between different application windows with the same string (e.g., "About") in the Window title. That is, SAN seems to work best or more specifically where the window title term(s) is(are) unique rather than potentially generic.

So, where the requirement is:
...I'd like to make persistent notes that can be stuck to similar windows by some form of wildcard.  That is, I'd like to be able to stick a note to a Web page and all its child pages, and to be able to stick a note to a particular file whatever editor I'm using to edit it. ...
___________________
- I have been unable to realise the first part (web pages) with SAN, but the second part (file names) can be realised to a greater extent by judiciously naming files in a unique fashion.
To be able to realise/meet both requirements with SAN would be very useful to me.
For files, I had been pondering the idea of somehow getting SAN to use the text in a file's Comment field, rather than just in a text file called (say) SaN_About.txt. The text would thus travel with the file, regardless of what application opened it. The implication is that the text might (say) even be duplicated in the file's comment field and in a file called SaN_About.txt - but that wouldn't be very elegant.
7  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Allow commenting of files in directory listing on: April 08, 2014, 09:32:10 PM
Just to update my review of this:
I have tried adapting to using CommentExplorer, but, though it works fine, it does not suit my particular requirements, which are:
  • #1. Ability to create or edit/modify/append file Comments for either single files or several selected files.
  • #2. Ability to search/list file comments in selected nested directories.
  • #3. Ability to speedily list/search all comments for all commented files, preferably in some kind of database.

The best I have come up with so far is still the use of the Comment (Alt-Z) function in xplorer²:

[attach]

Using this function meets requirements #1 and #2 very well, but producing (say) a whole-of-drive (all files) file comments listing is a bit tedious as the xplorer² search is looking at all files with data in the comments field. A quicker way is to search for comments in types of files or in specific nested directories.
However, if you do a save of a completed whole-of-drive (all files) file comments listing, then you can refer to that as your static snapshot database as at that point in time - and it is very fast as you are only searching the database.

...I use xplorer² file manager (Windows Explorer replacement). That has 2 comments fields - one (A) seems to be peculiar to xplorer², and the other (B) is a system one. For a JPG file, if you write/edit a comment in (A), it appears in (B), but it does not appear in either the EXIF or IPTC info of the file.

You could also consider using PSR (Problem Steps Recorder) which is built-in to Win7. It automates a lot (possibly most/all) of what you describe yourself doing manually, in the opening post. It puts the steps, screenshots and your comments text into an MHT file which is actually just a MIME email format file. The MHT file is ZIPped, all ready for emailing.  The MHT file is viewable in a web browser.
Here's the link to the Microsoft Help page about PSR: How do I use Problem Steps Recorder?

I don't know how you would be able to do that in a LibreOffice spreadsheet, but I would hazard a guess that a LibreOffice forum/discussion group might be able to help. This sort of requirement probably won't be a "new" one.

Very amusing and presumably unexpected backfire from a poll put up by the UK Independent, presumably intended to embarrass PM contender Farage. I don't know/care much about the politics, but I find it amusing when the media attempt to slur a politician they do not support and it all turns to custard.
As one of the comments suggests, it may be an indication that patriots like a patriot...

Also of possible interest in this context: StickySorter 1.0.1908.0 (I think that is the latest version issued).)
(It's apparently no longer supported/maintained by MS Labs, but you can still find it on the Internet.)

StickySorter is an affinity diagramming tool. Rather nifty. Can import/export from/to .CSV files.

I closed down FF after that run of FoxySpider and ran CCleaner whilst I made a cuppa tea. When I came back I saw that CC had removed over 2Gb of surplus data...compared to the usual max of 400Mb or so that it would otherwise usually do!
It would be interesting to see if one of those large images, when saved to disk and then opened and re-saved using (say) irfanview, would still be as big on the re-save - even without compression. I recall a discussion a while back on DCF where someone had these humungus image files - wedding photos - that he had recovered from disk. I noticed that after re-saving them in uncompressed form, they were of a "normal" size, and still had the same resolution. The conclusion was that recovered files can contain a load of redundant/surplus data, and I have found that to be consistent with my own experience since in recovering deleted image files from disk.

^^ Wow, there are a lot of humungous images on that site! Some very nice pix though. Impossible to download the whole lot into a FoxySpider window. Those aren't thumbnails! S-L-O-W. It tried to download them, but I killed it. Did not crash.
Bandwidth killer.
That's rather a feature of the website being crawled though, isn't it - rather than FoxySpider, I mean?

30 Scientists Call For More Challenges To ‘Prevailing Orthodoxies’
Date: 20/03/14     The Guardian

Government agencies use peer review to discourage open-ended inquiries and serious challenges to prevailing orthodoxies.

“Science is the belief in the ignorance of experts,” said Richard Feynman in the 1960s. But times change. Before about 1970, academics had access to modest funding they could use freely. Industry was similarly enlightened. Their results included the transistor, the maser-laser, the electronics and telecommunications revolutions, nuclear power, biotechnology and medical diagnostics galore that enriched the lives of virtually everyone; they also boosted 20th-century economic growth.

After 1970, politicians substantially expanded academic sectors. Peer review’s uses allowed the rise of priorities, impact etc, and is now virtually unavoidable. Applicants’ proposals must convince their peers that they serve national policies and are the best possible uses of resources. Success rates are about 25%, and strict rules govern resubmissions. Rejected proposals are usually lost. Industry too has lost its taste for the unpredictable. The 500 major discoveries, almost all initiated before about 1970, challenged mainstream science and would probably be vetoed today. Nowadays, fields where understanding is poor are usually neglected because researchers must convince experts that working in them will be beneficial.

However, small changes would keep science healthy. Some are outlined in Donald Braben’s book, Promoting the Planck Club: How Defiant Youth, Irreverent Researchers and Liberated Universities Can Foster Prosperity Indefinitely. But policies are deeply ingrained. Agencies claiming to support blue-skies research use peer review, of course, discouraging open-ended inquiries and serious challenges to prevailing orthodoxies. Mavericks once played an essential role in research. Indeed, their work defined the 20th century. We must relearn how to support them, and provide new options for an unforeseeable future, both social and economic. We need influential allies. Perhaps Guardian readers could help?

...Heh that's funny Iain, but where is that picture originally fun? (Or Photoshopped?)
I got it years ago when someone posted it (jokingly) as having been discovered in the wreckage of Egypt Air 481 or something, which mysteriously disappeared for no apparent reason. (From memory, when they eventually found it, the Black Box from that flight apparently showed that the captain had locked himself in the cockpit and was on his own repeating the phrase "Allahu Akbar" as the plane was put into a steep dive, so the cause was unexplained...)

...I had to track down the reason for explorer.exe intermittently restarting (not crashing - restarting) and programs routinely hanging for anywhere from seconds to over a minute. In the end it all turned out to be DWM.exe causing the problems. Explorer would restart after not getting a response for a certain amount of time from DWM. Likewise, when the Windows Task Manager told me some other program was hanging, if I checked in System Explorer it told me it was actual DWM. Once again, restart DWM.exe and the problem was solved.

I'm unsure whether it was the same issue, but I recall reading recently something to the effect that the root cause of a particular crash/hang/restart problem was an inadequate WAIT time interval being set for a service to respond via an I/O bus somewhere. Once you set the WAIT to a longer time interval, the problem went away. The WAIT was specified in the Registry somewhere. Sorry I can't be more specific. I would have made a note of it if it had been relevant to my setup. I shall try and find it and will post it up here if I do. ...

@4wd and others: I just found the log file, and inserted the details into my post above, for completeness. It was in C:\TEMP  ... (Doh!).
Sorry, I would have found it earlier using Everything search, but my tired mind had forgotten I had left the Enable Regex switch ON, and I only just now discovered that ...    embarassed
Amazing how a good night's sleep can unfuddle one's mind.

@x16wda: Thanks for the helpful comments. I found it all a bit confusing, but after reading all the references I could find, the situation seems to be that:
  • Either .NET Framework 3.5 or 4.0 is a prerequisite for the Express install, but both are not necessary.
  • Thus, if you don't have the prerequisite .NET Framework 3.5, then .NET Framework 4.0 is a prerequisite for the Express install. This (.NET 4.0) is fortunately already included in Windows 7 SP1 (e.g. my configuration) by default.
  • Powershell is not defined a prerequisite for the Express install (as far as I am aware) and is already in Windows 7 SP1 (e.g. my configuration) by default anyway.

It sometimes seem to me that if MS had deliberately wanted to make the conditional logic for installing their "FREE" proggies so tortuous, then they probably couldn't have done much better than seems to have been achieved in the case of this Express install. Then again, maybe it was just a screwed up afterthought (i.e., not originally planned) to offer the FREE Express install. It'll be great if/when I can get it working...     Sad

I find FF Sync tremendously useful.
The latest version of FF has a new-style Sync, which makes the old one obsolete. To use the new-style Sync, you have to detach from your "old-style" Sync account (if you already have one), and set up a new-style Sync account.

This is how I did it and the information sources I used.

Hi,
Things had been working for me until I upgraded to 6.3 but now FFS just does not start. It displays a dialog with the aforementioned message with the information: "Error Code 32: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. (CreateFile)"

Details: Windows 7 64bit, and nope, FreeFileSync isn't running already that I can see.

Couple of questions - firstly, anyone know straight off what might have happened smiley ?
If not - I found the file in AppData/Roaming and ran unlocker against it - it could find nothing using it.

Any help appreciated, really liked this tool.
Jim.

EDIT: I just tried uninstalling and installing a portable version. Same issue but now I have no idea where the GlobalSettings.xml file might be to have a look at it. I can't see it anywhere.
