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:

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

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

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?

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?

59  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).

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
62  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.
63  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.
64  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.

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.

Just stumbled over what seems to be a very nice git book/tutorial available for free online.

I tried building it on Windows without success yet.

Found this one

http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/enotes/

Supposed to run on Android and Desktop (it's Java after all), which could be interesting. Did not try it yet though.

While the topic of this thread perhaps slightly misrepresents the scope of the article ...

Yes, sorry about that. Fixed.
74  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Android: Note-taking App with Encryption, Source Code, ... ? on: May 07, 2014, 05:00:20 AM
Encryption is the important part here: it means that all your notes (or information to make it more general) are encrypted and decrypted directly on your devices (aka client side encryption).

WorkFlowy doesn't seem to do that.

Reminds me that it's about time again to approach my boss to send some more money towards the OSS we use smiley
