Any chance of a x mins before fade warning (e.g. play a custom sound or some other notification) feature?

1504  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Hex Editor Neo Query on: May 19, 2011, 04:08:19 AM
I heard from an acquaintance recently that Hex Editor Neo is quite nice.  Any one have any experience and/or comments about it?

There appear to be a number of different versions (including a free one).

My log file is in not in the .setting directory but in \Application Data\syntevo\SmartGit\2.
Ah, my bad...Perhaps it's in .settings for me because I'm using the portable version.

Anyway... considering all that, SmartGit is probably what I'll try to use more in the next week.
Looking forward to any observations smiley

BTW, I wanted to search the history of a project via the log window and was stumped initially.  I learned that "search as you type" (they call this speed-search apparently) seems to work.  Was this obvious to you?  I didn't find this in the docs...it was again via a posting to that support list.

Then I spent a while trying to figure out how to search for subsequent occurrences -- finally after trying a variety of combinations, I hit on using the down (for next) and up (for previous) arrow keys...feels odd but at least something works.

On a related note, I've started to investigate gitk and am noticing that it seems to produce more search results than SmartGit for the same search terms in some cases.  It appears that SmartGit doesn't load all commits [1] by default and the searching only seems to take place over what's loaded -- once sufficiently more commits are loaded, additional search results seem to come up...

[1] Found a "Load all commits" menu item via the Query menu.

Another SmartGit bit (no, I have no relationship with the product or company smiley )...

1- some kind of optional “console like” textual feedback, some commands log view, like the one Git extensions provides (see #4). That would be good (maybe is that a secretly available option but… I didn’t find it).
Not quite what you may have been looking for, but if you look in the .settings directory, there is a file named "log.txt" which contains various details.  Perhaps better than nothing...

From the online docs there was this general info:

log.txt contains debug log information. It's configured via log4j.properties.

From a SmartGit support list: GIT commands sent by SmartGit:

Is it possible or configurable to view the Git commands executed by SmartGit somewhere? It would be awesome if they were displayed in the status bar or a console popup.

You can find the executed Git commands (and the output of the Git command) in SmartGit's log.txt.

For emacs users, try qemacs at the prompt...and be sure to view the hello.c file in /root/ via qemacs.

A peripheral SmartGit remark:

It does miss some other important ones though, like “blame”, “stash”, “clone –bare” (last one : surprising, to say the least… Unless I missed something).

FWIW, it looks like there is some kind of stash support (at least in the 2.x series):

1514  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Resources for learning git? on: May 16, 2011, 08:13:19 PM
Still making my first pass through Mastering Git Basics (Erlang Factory SF Bay Area 2010 Talks), but am finding the alternating slides of "git command with brief example(s)" followed by a corresponding summary picture slide, to be a nice idea.

Thanks to phitsc for the ACCU 2011 mentioning where I first learned about a version of this talk smiley

P.S. The ACCU version of the talk seems to be longer and gets further along in the slides.

Everytime I've seen video done in Silverlight it's been far superior to anything in Flash by a wide margin.
Started watching a talk recently via Silverlight.  It did seem nicer than many Flash-based experiences.

May be not quite what's being sought after...but there's some possibly related bits in Crockford on JavaScript — Scene 6: Loopage starting at about 00:31:36 (Remote Procedure Call slide) to may be 00:33:29 (Latency Compensation slide).

I'm revisiting a PDF version of the article and finding it helpful  Thmbsup

Thanks for sharing this smiley

BTW, it looks like some of the talks mentioned at:


don't look to have links pointing to pages with presentation videos (at least some how they don't seem to show up here under IE8 and FF4):


Searching on Google for some of the titles does turn up some pages with links to video.  Inspection of the HTML revealed that the links are there.  Odd that they don't appear to show up here.

Anyway, with a bit of work it appears some more videos can be gotten at...though it does look like at least one talk has yet to be made available.

P.S. The following link leads to descriptions of talks and occasional links to slides:

I don't know how Google Voice Search works, but if it requires that my own utterings get sent to Google, I might feel more comfortable having some kind of transformation/changing happen to such data before it gets sent on to them.

Don't you find the ensuing screenful of cat pictures faintly annoying?   Wink
1524  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Invoking FARR via Speech Recognition on: May 14, 2011, 03:07:15 AM
Inspired by recent VoicePics activity, gave bringing up FARR's window a try via AHK.

Apart from ensuring appropriate speech recognition is installed (SAPI 5.1 here), this approach comes down to customizing code posted at the top of:

  Voice Recognition COM

The modifications made include:

  • Ensuring the appropriate COM.ahk file is available
  • Choosing the word to be recognized
  • Arranging for an appropriate hotkey to be sent upon recognition
Now saying "Mouser" within earshot of an appropriate microphone may show or hide FARR's main window here smiley

it seems to be updating hourly even after a hibernation, right?
I believe so.  Took screenshots of sWeather's main window once an hour four times, and they all showed different info.
