It sounds like LastPass is saying they may have had a breach -- PSN is a reference to the recent SONY incident, perhaps?

On a tangential note, with these screencasts I tend to download them first (as the DownloadHelper FF plugin makes them available as mp4) and then view them using an external player such as smplayer or VLC.

I find that this kind of "offline" viewing provides a less frustrating, robust, and familiar experience smiley

(I appreciate that one has a choice in the matter though (thanks mouser!) -- it's not always so easy to obtain a local copy.)

Thanks for the background info -- I should patch myself to pay attention to status bar info more smiley

I think the vertical separator is an improvement  Thmbsup

Clicking on the triangle in the lower left for pausing and dragging the rectangle found to the triangle's right seemed to work for here for advancing / rewinding.

FWIW, this was with Firefox 4.0.1.

I try to apply some similar reasoning to data storage -- the less I store the better smiley
1506  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: Release: sWeather (tray-based weather app) on: May 04, 2011, 12:58:01 AM
I really ought to clean it up a bit or notify the user in some way.
Heh heh.  Any word on this?

FWIW, I've nearly put together a utility to restart sWeather when my notebook resumes.  It uses code from:

A minor point of confusion:

[attachthumb=1]

On a number of occasions when I go to look for the refreshing functionality in the main window, I end up looking through the menus and then (perhaps lamely) wonder how to refresh.  Somehow at first I thought each of the buttons were associated with items to their left (even though they don't really line up) and thus dismissed the possibility of the desired functionality being available via one of them.

I was thinking it might be a bit clearer if there were some border around the buttons or if the buttons were displayed more like a vanilla toolbar (though may be there's some downside to that?).

Does this seem pointless?

I don't know of a good reader that supports all of those (tending to read pdfs with one set of apps and epub with another set).  Certainly would be interested in one though smiley

Mmm, code samples.

  • AndFTP (now anyone tell me there's ANY better FTP client?)
I think ES File Explorer may have FTP client support -- I haven't been using the FTP support though.  Did you happen to try it out?

On random occasions, I also use:
  • AndChat (the least ugly IRC client I could find)
I did not have any luck getting this to work Sad  I keep getting what seems to be described here:

I haven't worked out the details, but it seems like it might be possible to apply Drag and Drop Robot to get generated mp3 files to play.
1512  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: automated mp3 rip from video clip on: April 30, 2011, 11:05:59 PM
I'm still pondering...

Thanks for asking smiley
1513  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: automated mp3 rip from video clip on: April 30, 2011, 01:12:48 AM
Seems like it was a good bet as that worked here.
1514  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: automated mp3 rip from video clip on: April 29, 2011, 04:54:58 AM
Tried using Video2MP3.exe from cmd.exe:

Quote
C:\TEMP>Video2MP3.exe some.avi

Processing seemed to happen but didn't find an mp3 file in C:\TEMP (this is with Video2MP3.exe and a suitable config.ini in C:\TEMP).  After looking around a bit, found it in C:\.  Do others confirm this sort of thing happens in their environments too?

I realize that readme.txt has:

Quote
    1) Drag & drop a video file or files onto this executable file.

But perhaps it could work from the command line too?
1515  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: How to index bookmarks (or is my install not listing plugins for some reason??) on: April 28, 2011, 05:42:09 AM
FWIW, took a quick look at Chrome's Bookmarks file...a single bookmark might look like:

Quote
    {
        "date_added": "12948459931936850",
        "id": "4",
        "name": "DonationCoder.com",
        "type": "url",
        "url": "http://www.donationcoder.com/"
     }

In FF (at least with 4) that might look like:

Quote
    {
        "index": 10,
        "title": "DonationCoder.com",
        "id": 22,
        "parent": 3,
        "dateAdded": 1260840327468000,
        "lastModified": 1260840327468000,
        "type": "text/x-moz-place",
        "uri": "https://donationcoder.com/"
    }

Concerning FarrFox, although I'm not using it myself, I'm not sure it can handle Firefox 3 / 4 bookmarks (Since Firefox 3 bookmarks are stored in a database instead of a text file).
FWIW, for FF3 (may be in FF4 too) perhaps some of the following may be relevant:

  http://www.donationcoder.com/forum/index.php?topic=18615.msg195345#msg195345

  http://www.donationcoder.com/forum/index.php?topic=18615.msg195489#msg195489

IIRC, under the appropriate circumstances, one can get at slightly older bookmark info in the form of JSON files in the bookmarkbackups folder in one's profile directory.  Don't have any idea whether this is in a form at all similar to how Chrome stores things.

Last time this was discussed with mouser, I believe the conclusion that was reached was that to get up-to-date info, one would end up copying the sqlite data elsewhere to operate on it (blech)...looks like other folks may have reached similar conclusions:

1517  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: automated mp3 rip from video clip on: April 28, 2011, 01:09:23 AM
I was thinking it'd be nice to hear some sound when Video2MP3 completed, so I tried something like:

[copy or print]
Video2MP3.exe somemediafile.avi && mplayer.exe somemediafile.mp3

but didn't have much luck -- mplayer.exe starts up before Video2MP3 finishes.

Any ideas on getting this sort of thing to work?

While looking into Sage (which appears to use Python to "glue" a whole lot of math/science-related software together), noticed one of their eventual goals was Python 3 compatibility.  Wondering how things were going on the Python 2 to 3 transition, came across:

Writing Forwards Compatible Python Code

Any Pythoners have any comments on the content?

FavLoc sounds interesting -- FWIW, I've been using Automatic Save Folder, perhaps with somewhat similar goals in mind.

If you mount the holder vertically, it ends the argument. Arguing about the end on the left or right isn't quite the same and doesn't carry the same passionate beliefs.  Wink
Brilliant!
