Until now, I think I have fared very well with the combination of Sublime/Vintageous and Visual Studio/VsVim. I feel I get best of both worlds. E.g. I mostly do find&replace with the applications' built-in functionality instead of :s. But what I get from the respective VI-modes is what I miss most from the other apps, namely fast cursor movement / text manipulation within the current line!

103  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Thousands of Android apps reveal private App-develeloper keys on: June 20, 2014, 02:06:58 AM
With a tool called PlayDrone developed at Columbia University it was possible to reveal secret keys of thousands of Android apps. With these keys it was even possible to access private data of users of these apps.

WOW!

It's a shame it's the Subversion repositories which are gone instead of the git ones. Git repos, as a matter of fact, are basically their own backup (if you happen to have a local copy). I sincerely hope none of the customers have lost all of their long hard work!

106  Special User Sections / Site/Forum Features / (new) icon - make it easier to hit on touch screen device on: June 02, 2014, 03:00:16 AM
The (new) icon on the subject line of the 'UNREAD POSTS' page is an essential part of my DC-workflow. Quite often, I'm using my iPad to read on the DC forums. With the retina display, it's actually quite comfortable to read without having to zoom in. Unfortunately, hitting that (new) icon is a bit of a gamble. Often, I'm hitting the subject line instead of the (new) icon, taking me to the very first post instead of to the new one.

Would it be possible to make hitting that (new) icon somehow more reliable? Maybe by adding more white space between the icon and the subject link, or by putting it into a dedicated column, or by any other means...
107  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: TrueCrypt is Now Abandonware?! on: May 30, 2014, 06:55:51 AM
If a crowd-funded security audit of your FOSS project doesn't convince you that there is a tremendous interest in your project, I don't know what will.

Also, bitlocker cannot replace TrueCrypt, as bitlocker is not cross-platform.

And then, why no encouragement for someone to fork, if they see a need for the tool?

Even for someone not usually into conspiracy theories this sounds rather fishy.

There are also tools that detect and report code duplication for various programming languages. These are mostly commercial though.
109  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Any options to search Outlook contacts/addressbook? on: May 28, 2014, 10:58:25 AM
You could try my FARR Windows Search plugin. People have been using it with mixed success though (reporting stability issues which I was never able to pinpoint).

It seems to work for contacts; at least the ones in my local address book (not the global ones though).

in FARR type:

ws contact [the contact your looking for]

And this problem is going to get worse with the adoption of 4k Displays.

After reading Jeff Vogel's article reference here, at least now we know that we're not alone with this problem.

There's a new PC & Android humble bundle today. I rarely play on Android and never on PC... gonna check it out now ...  Grin
112  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: About the Python 2 to 3 Transition... on: May 28, 2014, 01:31:46 AM
I've never even heard about the Python 2 vs 3 debate until ewemoa started this topic. But then we went for Ruby when we had to decide between the two Cool
113  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: About the Python 2 to 3 Transition... on: May 27, 2014, 10:14:18 AM
And here's Drew Crawford's opinion about Python 3 (and Python 2 whiners Wink ).

I find it difficult to understand how you can't come up with a sustainable business model when you have a service that works and 5 million potential customers.

Is it so obvious that starting to charge a reasonable fee for your service is going to turn so many users away that it is not even worth a try?
115  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Springpad shutting down on: May 26, 2014, 01:41:38 AM
https://springpad.com/blo...-springpad-shutting-down/

I have been using the service, although not to such a level that this would be a real problem for me. But then again, you shouldn't rely on free services, should you?

117  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Plea for help from programmer and blogger Xah Lee on: May 16, 2014, 02:38:10 PM
Programmer and blogger Xah Lee who runs the ergoemacs.org web site posted a disturbing plea for help today

http://ergoemacs.org/misc/xah_as_good_as_dead.html

He's financially ruined, living from noodles and oats, close to homelessness.

I've been following his blog mainly because of his excellent information and reviews about ergonomic keyboards.

I have to admit I fail to understand how he managed to live in a place that cost him $1600 a month without having a job for years (if I understood that right).
118  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: TextAdept: Lua-extensible Editor on: May 12, 2014, 01:27:47 AM
That's interesting -- I wonder what is causing the horrible red/blue fringing on vertical edges on my setup Sad.

Jibz, your screenshots remind me of ClearType colouring/anti-aliasing.  Perhaps that's what is causing it?  For the record, I can't STAND ClearType at all; it always looks fuzzy and out-of-focus to me.

That reminds me of: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3KZ6mIsbDc4

Maybe we need a text-editors-only sub-forum Wink
120  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: TextAdept: Lua-extensible Editor on: May 11, 2014, 02:04:23 PM
And here one from me, both with Consolas and Monokai Themes (although these differ for the two editors as is obvious):

Same conclusion as Shades.
121  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: TextAdept: Lua-extensible Editor on: May 11, 2014, 04:01:41 AM
Textadept has moved on since the review as it seems. 7.2 which I'm running right now has tabs for example.
122  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: TextAdept: Lua-extensible Editor on: May 11, 2014, 03:45:29 AM
Found a pros/cons review comparing Textadept with Sublime/VIM/Emacs here:

http://yfl.bahmanm.com/Me...-reviews/textadept-review

Current version is 7.2 by the way.
123  News and Reviews / Mini-Reviews by Members / Re: Atom - A new editor is born on: May 10, 2014, 01:25:32 AM
I don't know why, but I really enjoy reading about why people choose the text editors they use.
 Wink

I think it has partly to do with the fact that it's just a text editor, lol.  It's supposed to be this very plain thing, yet there are so many complex options and features, etc. to consider and we get all passionate about them.  Same goes for other software, I suppose, but I really have fun with the text editors.

I think it's also due to the fact that editing text is one of a few key activities in many professions (at least of DC people). It's also one where it seems to be very apparent how it could be improved (although the specifics seem to be quite individual).

The one improvement important to me would be efficient navigation and selection within text. Home/End and Ctrl+Left/Right just doesn't cut it. It's also the main reason why I'm experimenting with VIM again.

I've read an interesting rant about text editors in general here and specifically about atom here yesterday, which makes some valid points to think about (it's in German, but I'm sure google translate can handle it). It made me check out the textadept web site which ewemoa had alread posted about but I had forgotten. After what I have read so far about atom I think checking out textadept or lime (a Sublime clone) would currently be a better time investment for me than trying to build atom (which I still haven't succeeded with).

Funny and sad at the same time!

Indeed. It seems like using git not only serves the purpose of versioning your files, but also to excercise your brain.
