Just downloaded it and it seems to be working fine. What Windows version have you tried to run it on?

ps. Progress Bars of Life falls into the group of programs I have written that may actually have 0 users.  Which is sort of a shame since it seems like there should be at least a few people that would find it useful..

If anyone reads this who actually uses the program (I don't mean someone who tries it and then uninstalls but someone who actually uses it for more than a couple of days), I'd love to hear about it!

I think this one would be especially useful to have as an Android widget Wink

55  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: FARR Plugin Request: RSS Reader on: November 07, 2013, 10:07:21 AM
The reason why most of the searches that come with FarrWebMetaSearch don't work is because FarrWebMetaSearch has a fundamental flaw: it gathers results by applying regular expressions on a web page's html. Unfortunately, a web page's html doesn't seem to be very stable (over time) Sad In other words, when a web site provider changes their html (for whatever reason), these regexes become invalid or unusable and keeping them up-to-date would be quite a task I'm afraid.

That being said, FarrWebMetaSearch could be quite suitable for showing RSS feeds, because the RSS format is well-defined and never changes. Currently, FarrWebMetaSearch requires one file per site for definition. So to fulfill the OP's request, it would have to be changed / extended in such a way that it uses one definition file (defined for the RSS format) for many sites, as suggested by the OP. And then: reading is one thing, but you probably also want the functionality to mark items as read, to star items, to share items, etc. etc.

Do you use any of the mobile apps (iOS and/or Android) with Wuala? Can they now also encryp and upload data to the cloud (last time I looked they could only download, but not upload data).

Edit: Ah, just saw that I already posted that a few posts up Grin (but that was over a year ago)
57  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Book: Masterminds of Programming on: September 16, 2013, 04:51:19 AM
I can remember the stark contrast between Bjarne Stroustrup (C++) and Brad Cox and Tom Love (Objective-C): the former humble, self-critical, explaining the other two bragging, jealous, unsympathetic.

Thomas E. Kurtz (BASIC) I also read with much interest. BASIC was my first programming language (which I learned from a BASIC command reference, from A to Z, on an MSX and MSX-II computer). What I can remember about it is that the interview really showed how old he is (already was at the time of the interview). He understood none of the questions about more recent development in computer programming.

About the Charles H. Moore (FORTH) interview I remember how weird the guy must be.

But I also found the other interviews entertaining, instructive and worthwhile.

Ah excellent. Was just about to post this:

which is all I found about exporting from feedly.

Another recommendation for https://bazqux.com/. After trying feedly I've switched to Bazqux and been really happy with it. I've had to switch from Reeder to Mr. Reader on the iPad, which is ok too. Still looking for a good Android client though.
How did you export your feeds from feedly to bazqux?  I couldn't find that info on feedly.  I'd like to give bazqux a try, but I'd rather export my current feedly feeds rather than try to use the old Google Reader xml file.

I think I didn't have to. IIRC I made the switch shortly before google reader was closed so bazqux could actually import my feeds directly from google. I think feedly still used google reader as a backend when I was using it, so everything was actually nicely in sync.

I'm going with Bazqux.com  (a 30 day trial after which you're charged $9, $19 or $29 a year for the same service, you get to decide what it's worth) over Feedly's freebie.

Nosh, thanks for the head up. I am also now trialing Bazqux.com.

And me.

64  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: SSD's - How They Work Plus Tips on: June 07, 2013, 01:44:17 AM
There's another related article in one of the more recent editions of Communication of the ACM:

http://queue.acm.org/detail.cfm?id=2463636

The author postulates that SSDs could both be made more reliable and more performant (*) if there was a file system specifically targeting the characteristics of SSDs. The only SSD-related command current file systems support is TRIM, which marks a region as 'no longer in use', and which looses its effectiveness as an SSD gets near to full.

It seems to be a chicken-and-egg problem though: no one will make an SSD-specific file systems because current SSDs don't offer an SSD-related API (appart from TRIM). And no one will make an SSD-specific API because there are no file systems that would make use of it.


(*) that doesn't seem to be an English word?
65  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Google Reader gone on: June 06, 2013, 01:58:49 PM
I've also settled for Feedly for the time being. Like IainB I find it inferior to Google Reader, especially its interface. It's not slow for me though. I wish it had https.

There was quite a good intro to how SSDs work in Communications of the ACM recently called 'Anatomy of a Solid-State Drive'. While in my memory the article looked nicer (i.e. nicer layout), I think the contents is identical to this one:

68  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Some thoughts on the Project Wonderful Ad Network and web advertising in general on: May 14, 2013, 01:44:46 AM
I'm starting to share your dislike for Google. The fact that I as a (admittedly non-paying, well, at least not directly paying) customer have no control over availability of service and most importantly the use of my personal data is discomforting me more and more. But that only as an aside.

Concerning advertising: It might sound naive, but wouldn't it be perfect for a site like DC to have permanent related advertisers or sponsors, like magazines or sports associations etc. do? Let's say programming-related tool manufacturers (e.g. Microsoft) or Universities or SW manufacturers (e.g. Adobe). It could also be an interesting place to advertise for smaller companies (let's say the size of XYplorer, etc.). These would just pay a fixed monthly / yearly contribution (donation) to have fixed advertising space. I think DC could be very attractive for such advertisers because of the people frequenting the site. The long outstanding (and planned) site update might also help to convince possible advertisers that they are investing in a modern and evolving site.

I have no experience with any of the tools on your list. Nevertheless, I can give an opinion on one of them:

Cornerstone by zennaware is being co-developed by a former teammate of mine (he's one of the founders and owners of zennaware). I can tell you that he's a very talented and dedicated programmer. I have no doubt that Cornerstone must be an excellent piece of software and well worth its price.
70  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Looking for the best widget for numeric input on: May 09, 2013, 02:11:08 PM
If you haven't done so already, have a look at how it's done in Adobe Lightroom. You can use both keyboard and mouse. You can set a specific value either by entering into the edit box (at the end of the slider), or by clicking on a position on the slider. You can "move" the value both on the slider and the edit box. If these elements would be big enough I'm sure they would work well for touch input. You can re-set to a default position by double-clicking the slider handle. I don't think your multiple "good values" requirement is covered though.
71  DonationCoder.com Software / FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: CZB pack on: April 05, 2013, 03:53:42 AM
It's not a bad idea. Maybe the new web site, once put in place, will allow to implement something like that.

Concerning a simpler way to install FARR plugins: have a look at DcUpdater. While it does not support installation of all of the available plugins I guess most of them are there.

... and there is a better way to report what is broken and what is not....

The typical way this is currently done is by posting a bug report in the respective plugin's thread. When you say 'better', do you have something specific in mind?

74  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Google Reader gone on: March 20, 2013, 09:22:51 AM
Yes, I know. But they could just have left the menu entry until July 1 as well.
75  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Google Reader gone on: March 20, 2013, 09:18:00 AM
They said July 1, 2013. But since today there doesn't seem to be a menu entry for Reader in the google menu bar any more Angry (and it already was under More anyway)
