3376  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: HowTo remove ALL of Firefox EXCEPT login infos? on: April 19, 2011, 04:41:27 PM
Just thought I'd toss in that I was using Secure Login AddOn in FF.  But it turns out that LastPass is one of those that does work well across Chromium/FF.  Now when I register for another forum or whatnot and add it to LastPass, if I go there in the other browser I get autologin without having to do anything.  Really makes things easier esp. if you have added cookie cleaning to CCleaner.
3377  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: FreeFileSync (Open-Source) on: April 19, 2011, 04:35:04 PM
That looks very similar to the sync tool in FreeCommander.  I like the FC sync very much.  Since the current FC is 32 bit, it may have some shortcomings on a 64 bit system.  But if you are not dealing with redirected folders, just ordinary data folders, it works fine.

The mechanism in FreeCommander is very similar.  Additionally it has check boxes to include or not subfolders.  Also once you do the comparison, it indicates with arrows which files would be copied in which direction and you can uncheck any you don't want to include in the copy.  Very intuitive.

What system are you playing it on and what is the graphics card used? What is your normal media player and do you have the same problem there? (presumably not) If you did at some point have a similar problem in other media players, how did you correct it? It's possible Silverlight is using "overlay" mode or some other specialized video streaming display system, which may be controllable by advanced settings in a graphics card driver.

Sorry, I missed replying to your post in a timely fashion.
It's my understanding that all this stuff is not software adjustable in Sliver Light. On other boards people's solutions amount to "adjust the settings on your monitor." Not really acceptable afaic.

It's probably the #1 Silver Light complaint.  No brightness/contrast controls.

OneKey 1.6.0.0  Changed default hotkey to F10 function key.
3380  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: OneKey 1.5.0.0 on: April 18, 2011, 05:44:20 PM
A number of applications seem to use F11 for full-screen mode (e.g. IE, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, jEdit, SpeedCrunch, VLC)...it seems like it might be developing into a kind of convention.

You can easily set it to a different function key using Set Keyboard Hotkey command in Tray Menu. Also the hotkey deoesn't have to be one key.  That's just the way I want to use it.  You can change it to Atl-F11 or Control-Shift-r or whatever using the same tray command. The limitation is hotkeys that AHK understands as input.  For instance to set the hotkey on the command line to Control-F10 use "^F10" on the command line(without the quotes.)

Once you set it the .ini file remembers it. It's not like you have to set it every time. There's too many hotkeys out there to totally avoid conflicts esp. when only using one key.

edit: otoh you make a good point.  F10 seems to be open at least in browsers. I'll set that as default in next release.


3381  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Proof That People Cannot Read (EULAs) on: April 18, 2011, 05:03:28 PM
Hmmmm, I wonder if there are any laws about minimum font size with these agreements.  Some of the print is so small it might as well be on a microdot.

Even if you can read it, unless you've been to law school, what good is it? Usually the terms are not what a reasonable person would infer but some jazz about "customary practice."  Meaning, business has been ripping people off this way for over 100 years, therefore it's "customary practice" in the industry.  So quit bitchin' about it and take the hit!!   cheesy

If they really wanted people to read it they should give away one of those divers where you put baking soda in his boot to make him go. smiley

Thanks for the comment. I'm trying to cut down on spending but less than 20 cents a disc I can't pass it up.

Just for chuckles I started a thread on W7 forum.  See if anyone adds a useful suggestion there:

Sorry posting so late but I just noticed this at newegg.  With the promo discount it brings the per disc price down to $0.18 for 16x DVD5.

I've been using these purple cake box spindles whether on sale at OfficeMax or NewEgg for quite awhile without issues.  Whenever I see them for a quarter a disc or less I get a spindle.  Not the inket printable kind, but I use a Sharpie marker anyway.

3385  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Compare dictionary (text) files and remove duplicate entries on: April 17, 2011, 08:05:15 PM
It's an interesting problem because most db are made to have keys to look up some associated data. In this case the "keys" are the data.

Instead of sorting a giant file you might look for an approach to sort a smaller "seed" file, then find some routine that adds to sorted flat files via binary search.  The routine would do a binary search, if the word is not found, insert it in sorted position etc..

Still, large files on slow disks are a problem.  Growing a small file until it reaches some optimum size may be an approach.  At some point as you say the text file becomes unwieldy.

If anyone has already done it though, it's probably some db guru.
3386  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Compare dictionary (text) files and remove duplicate entries on: April 17, 2011, 07:34:20 PM
Sounds like you need to incorporate some type of database engine.  The efficient access to large sets of keys is done by it.  How to access from ad hoc outside apps is another matter.  But giant flat text files seem to have reached the practical limit for your purposes.

I would search around for a forum where people deal exclusively or mainly with db application issues.  Once you have an idea of workable db storage then you may be able to describe a small glue app that can bridge the gap between the db and the apps that want to use it.

Thing is with the way you describe it, it sounds like the key "indexing" or sorting would have to be done repeatedly.  Don't know if even a free db would do that much good.  Seems too scattered to lend itself to streamlining.

OneKey 1.5.0.0  Fixed bug when hotkey changed via Tray Menu
3388  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Compare dictionary (text) files and remove duplicate entries on: April 17, 2011, 04:57:46 PM
I'm not quite getting what you want for the end result. If you continually filter the additional lists to remove entries found in the master list, wouldn't it result in just having a master list?  Since the master has all and all sublists are stripped of entries in the master, would not all subsidiary lists eventually be empty?

I bought Newsbin back in 2006. It's a most excellent binary news reader. I don't use their search service as that's the expensive part.  In fact they are in beta for version 6 which is a major update for the UI.  Floating windows and such.  Has automatic par repair and unrar built in.

I won't get into a debate about usenet.  I think many of the discussion forums have gone to the web. But with dozens of thousands of individual groups I think you can find a few that are amusing.

Newsbin is built for binary download, as mentioned.  For stuff like Tennis discussion group you would probably want to use something like Gravity.

I also use UsenetExplorer where a license purchase gives you a certain amount of time subscribed to the search engine(was 18 months but I think it's down to annual now.) But there are free search engines you can use from your browser.

I did learn from experience that Newbin stores some encrypted data in the registry. If you use a registry cleaner it's a good idea to open Newsbin Help Menu and click Register/Update Key. Otherwise 7 days later it will tell you the trial is over etc..  The cleaner just deletes the token that shows you paid.

Their forum is quite useful.  Reported bugs that can be verified are usually fixed promptly.  The online help is being revamped for v. 6 and is vastly improved compared to 2006.

Also if you have multiple physical HD you can set the unrar destination to a different drive to reduce thrashing and speed up the assembly of the downloaded parts.

Usenet Explorer is also a nice app.  But I use Newsbin constantly and mainly use UE for the search engine component.

For $10 if you have any interest in usenet binaries you'd be crazy not to go for this deal.

edit: I guess I should mention, if you have broadband, a Giganews account or other comparable premium service, will let you download at full bandwidth.  Both Newsbin and UE download at full throttle from my Giganews server.

sort -u input.txt >output.txt (in Cygwin) is very fast and working great. Thank you for pointing me towards the ported nix apps.

@Moderator: Please close this thread.

Glad it worked for you. smiley
3391  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Virtualization to Create Single EXEs from Mixed Assemblies on: April 16, 2011, 01:30:51 AM
I've only given this a cursory try, but Enigma Virtual Box is similar and free.  There's an enhanced paid version.

Since I read this thread it prompted me to visit the site again. Seems v. 2.0 of EVB was just released on the 14th:

http://www.enigmaprotector.com/en/home.html

The "Protector" version claims .NET support and sells for $149 USD for single user license. I played around a bit with the free version. It was easy to use.  Rather like a simple installer wrapper app.
3392  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: Remove duplicate entries from within a single large (text) dictionary on: April 15, 2011, 08:00:50 PM
Most of the solutions I found were memory based. For example, load into a dictionary(associative array, hash, map etc.) and write it back out.  Same problem.  I couldn't find a free Virtual Memory backed dictionary. Scripting.Dictionary would do it for small data, but I suspect if would crap out processing a GB file.

Others were use a db.  Linux solution is likely the simplest. Plus it's derived from a system that's done that type of stuff for a long time. Not Windows.

There should be some free Windows editors that handle files of arbitrary length.  Try Softpedia.  Just so you can look through the file without loading the entire file in ram. When you change file position you have to wait for some disk churning is all. smiley

3393  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: Remove duplicate entries from within a single large (text) dictionary on: April 15, 2011, 05:36:28 PM
Assuming you are running Windows, I'd look for a port of Linux utilities.  Linux has many tools designed for the output of one to be piped to the input of another, rather than loading everything into ram.

Searching around the solutions I found ranged from creating a database, to do it yourself merge sort etc.. but the simplest was a Linux command line solution.

Check for Windows ports of the sort and uniq commands.

edit: the discusion on this thread may give you some ideas:

I know. I agree with you.  smiley

I just wanted to make it clear to people reading this thread that dialogmove isn't just a multi monitor tool; as that might put people off from trying it.

First time readers could have got the wrong end of the stick.

I gotcha'. smiley
3395  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: OneKey 1.4.0.0 on: April 14, 2011, 09:06:21 PM
OneKey 1.4.0.0.  Fixed bug where hotkey or launch file/shortcut changes were not saved to .ini on shutdown or log off.


3396  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / OneKey 2.0.5.0 on: April 14, 2011, 09:04:29 PM
This is yet another tray hotkey.  The idea this time is a hotkey dedicated to launching a single shortcut, or data file, or exectuable/batch file.  If you have one thing that you open constantly but you don't want to mouse for it or use a spot on the Super Bar or whatnot, you can use this to have it launch with a function key press.

Default hotkey is F11.  Hotkey can be changed via Tray Menu or by command line param.  Pressing the hotkey before the launch file has been initialized, or using the Set Shortcut or File to Launch command in the Tray Menu, brings up an input box.  Simply type in or paste the path to the file/shortcut.

I tried a file open dialog first, but it was a pita navigating to start menu or program files etc. I thought the simple Input Box was better since you can just use Explorer Copy As Path command or just type the path in manually.  The nice thing is it doesn't care about quotes. You can Copy As Path then Paste and just leave the double quotes on if you like.

On program quit, it writes OneKey.ini in the same folder as the exe to save hotkey and path info.

Data files open with the appropriate program via Windows file type association.

You may download from my page:

As usual, it's free for you to use at your own risk.  Donations via Tray Menu command, or otherwise, appreciated. smiley
3397  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Move dialog boxes to the center of the (correct) monitor on: April 14, 2011, 08:54:33 PM
Yeah, but how can I insert "Blank" or "nil" into DialogMove's preferences then?

I haven't looked at Dialog Move code since I don't have multiple monitors. If I can't try it out myself it's kind of a dead end.

Just a note: dialogmove works on any monitor, single or multi setup. The original purpose was to work on a single large monitor; it was then tweaked for multi screens.

I even find it useful on a tiny netbook screen.

I believe.  All I'm saying is the OP wants a function for multiple monitors and it seems futile to get into it if I don't have a MM set up.  Simulation ain't always the same as running 2 real physical devices. If I can't test it myself I don't want to code it.  Unless I was somebody's employee then I guess I'd haveta'. smiley
