Thanks for that.

Haven't had much luck building it yet -- also the sf site doesn't suggest a whole lot of activity.

The source code aspect is for multiple reasons including but not limited to:

Motivation to not hide / do user-unwanted things (no guarantee ofc)
Might be easier to fix if something is broken
Ability to study and modify
129  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Android: Note-taking App with Encryption, Source Code, ... ? on: May 06, 2014, 09:42:35 PM
Looking for a note-taking Android app with encryption, source code, local backup / restore, and being actively maintained.

Candidates so far (not necessarily fulfilling all criteria):

NoteCipher
OI Safe
miniNoteViewer

May be KeePassDroid can be shoe-horned for the purpose via its comment field...though perhaps that's not so great.

Any favorites / recommendations?



Additional things that have turned up:

Secret Space Encryptor
cryptonite
AES Crypt - source for the Android version doesn't appear to be available
Universal Password Manager
TravelCrypt

Root needed:

LUKSManager

This sounds promising!



Didn't know Mono had a similar capability!  Nice Thmbsup

Is it what's hinted at here?

Mono and applications that embed Mono can be deployed without an installer (you can "xcopy" deploy your application and the required Mono files without installing the .NET runtime).

Mostly *NIX -- on Windows for quick edits I've tended to use Notepad.exe smiley

And yes...I forgot about the slow connection part.

He he -- some things seem better these days!
135  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: The AVE on: May 04, 2014, 06:18:01 AM
Below are some scenarios I recall using vi / vim under:

  • Quick startup time handy for quick / small edits
  • Functions ok over slow connections
  • No other options in certain limited environments (e.g. while installing or restricted scenarios)

Knowing some of the key sequences has turned out to be handy in other contexts -- ofc, learning Emacs-ish key bindings also turned out to be useful too smiley

Haven't looked at in detail, but came across following:

137  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: The AVE on: May 03, 2014, 06:25:29 PM
By using the dwb browser, I seem to be learning some additional key sequences as well as having others reinforced.  For example, 'gg' for moving the cursor to the top of the buffer (didn't remember this one) and 'G' for moving the cursor to the bottom of the buffer.

In IntelliJ IDEA (and perhaps other environments) I think there are plugins to help one learn key sequences -- may be there are some for vim too.

FWIW, I came across the following when looking for a way to describe what 'gg' does:

One such plugin for IDEA is the Key Promoter plugin -- some description via following:

Ah, yes, I was about to point that out, "[" is an alias for the "test" command that requires a closing "]" and so requires a space between it and it's argument.

Those sneaky *NIX wizards!
139  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: An interesting look at what 'Big Data' means to privacy on: May 03, 2014, 04:40:57 PM
So where's the movement against these kind of things? Wink
140  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Yad - Yet Another Dialog on: May 03, 2014, 04:20:56 PM
Thanks -- that runs but I get the following error as well after specifying something to run and clicking the 'OK' button:

Quote
run-dialog.sh: line 15: [-z: command not found

For values to execute, I tried 'virtualbox' as well as 'palemoon' with similar results.  To be clearer, both programs start up -- I also see error the 'command not found' result output quoted above.



FWIW, changing line 15 so that there's a space between the first character '[' and the second character '-' seemed to silence the error output.
141  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Pale Moon 4 Linux on: May 03, 2014, 05:50:58 AM
I haven't had much success setting it up to "Always use private browsing mode" -- at least it doesn't look like it's working.

Steps I followed:

-Bring up preferences
-Select the Privacy section
-Select the drop down next to "Pale Moon will" and choose "Use custom settings for history"
-Ensure the checkbox below "Always use private browsing mode" is checked
-Click on the "Close" button at the bottom right of the dialog

After I restart and view the preferences again, I don't get the sense that the previous settings stuck.

Any one else tried this?

FWIW, it looks like I'm using Pale Moon 24.5.0.



My impression about it not working is likely off -- I think I misunderstood what I was seeing embarassed
142  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Yad - Yet Another Dialog on: May 03, 2014, 05:15:32 AM
Thanks for the warning -- the second example didn't work out of the box for me.



I liked the following examples from the man page:

Display a progress dialog while searching for all the postscript files in your home directory

  find $HOME -name '*.ps' | yad --progress --pulsate

Quote
Display a box with all of the installed desktop applications

Found the following post mentioning yad and others at SO:

FWIW, did find a few examples at sf (may be they're the same as what's at Google code -- looks like they're moving from there):

147  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: *NIX: Luakit, dwb, and other alternative browsers on: April 28, 2014, 03:49:59 AM
Thanks for the suggestions.



I tried uzbl and jumanji a bit -- my initial impression after looking around a bit is that development has slowed or stopped for them.



xxxterm seems to also go by the name have been renamed as 'xombrero' -- just installed.

Pluses:

  • I like how a default search engine is not chosen but instead a screen showing a list of choices is displayed smiley
  • Keybindings somehow a little easier to learn than some of the others.
  • Low-contrast color scheme - handy for JoTo and like-minded folk Wink
  • Focusing search field via key binding seems to work pretty well (in contrast, things I happened to try with dwb didn't work out so well)
  • Can jump to beginning / end of document using Home / End keys - dwb provides this via gg and G
  • Can reopen closed tabs

Minuses:

  • A bit ironic that at the time of this writing trying to view the github issues page using xombrero leads to a crash here [1]...
  • I've yet to figure out how to get it to ask for confirmation on quitting...though I guess the appropriate key bindings could be modified or elimintated...
  • I lost part of this post accidentally via some mistyping...but "undo" didn't seem to recover it Sad
  • Going back a page seems to position the "view port" at the top of the page - losing where one was looking before going forward or clicking on a link - dwb seems to preserve this
  • Haven't found way to open a link in a new tab in the background - dwb seems to have this
  • Seems to spawn pop-ups in tabs by default - dwb doesn't appear to do this by default
  • Doesn't seem to support key bindings that use multiple modifiers (e.g. both Shift and Control) - dwb doesn't appear to either



Haven't gotten around to Vimprobable yet.  Vimprobable2 also dies on xombrero's github issues page...



[1] He he...also crashed dwb!
148  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: *NIX: Luakit, dwb, and other alternative browsers on: April 28, 2014, 12:24:12 AM
Thanks for the suggestion, 40hz.

It was easy enough to get installed, unfortunately, it also suffers from one of the problems that has not gotten fixed in FF [1], so I'm back to dwb for now.



[1] Bug 502307 - Closing multiple tabs in the last browser window with Private Browsing enabled yields no warning regardless of preference setting
149  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / *NIX: Luakit, dwb, and other alternative browsers on: April 27, 2014, 08:50:27 PM
Having experienced recurring problems with Firefox, am trying out some alternative web browsers.

Tried midori (feels like needs more polish) and dillo (a little too minimal?) already and am currently trying Luakit and dwb.

Both seem fairly light and configurable -- seems to help to have some vi-background though.

Any favorite alternative browsers?

How do I Install a Plugin? Just move the entire Plugin directory that you unzip into the Plugins/ subdirectory of Find and Run Robot.  For example C:\Program Files\FindAndRunRobot\Plugins\MySamplePlugin. To uninstall a plugin just delete it from the Plugins/ subdirectory (you can also simply DISABLE it from FARR options).

How can I Configure a Plugin? You can see the list of installed plugins from the Options dialog on the Plugins tab.  Here you can temporary enable or disable plugins, and find information about each installed plugin.  There are also some default options for each plugin that you can adjust.
