76  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: In search of ... a better way to list existing software on: May 28, 2012, 07:17:12 AM
barney,

I use Free Belarc Advisor http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html to get html list of all installed programs. It gives much more information, but I use it for the program names and versions to compare between two machines, if both are having same set of program and versions.

See if it helps you,

Regards,

Well I was looking for the 'new features' too, when I got the alert for TD 8.0 today.

Since the history is a long list mixed with fixes, I filtered out the 'Added:' lines, to read only the new features, which is about 115 lines.

78  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Script to sort your Gmail messages by size using Google docs on: April 25, 2012, 11:52:15 AM
I have been using Outlook Express in MAPI mode to clean up my GMail accounts from the early time when it had 2 GB quota, and still use it.

I download just the header of all mails from GMAil. It comes pretty fast in MAPI mode even from a 90% full GMail account, in less than 2/3 minutes. I can download headers of just Inbox or All_Mail or any other labeled mails. No timeout or so message, as just the header gets downloaded, which shows the from, subject, date and most important size of each mail.

I flag (which shows as starred in GMail) all those which are bigger or just drag them to GMail/Trash folder in OE which is similar to deleting mails in GMail. Please note that deleting mail by pressing delete key in OE will not work, you need to move/drag them to GMail/Trash folder.

Some of my GMail account which I use for all types of subscription, gets filled up too soon, as I do not check them regularly. So when ever GMail informs me about the quota full, I use OE to clean up.

Another reason of using OE instead of any other 3rd party app or web service is that the password is not given to any other app/service, even I do not save it.

Give it a try and you may be surprised by the speed and simplicity of it. You may use Outlook instead of OE and it should give same result, but I have never tried it.

Me too.

As last, I was able to say 'Thank you DC'.

I donated to the 'General DC site' from my fund, which was accumulated with help from our valued members.

I am feeling more happier now  cheesy

Well I have ready solution for controlling the 'off topic' messages.

Give a link 'Off topic' at bottom of each message, beside 'Report to moderator', which will notify the moderator, who will check and make the message 'yellowish' or something, so that everyone knows it from the rest. Just like inserted ads in search results.

Then ones who do not like it will skip it or give it a glance. It will also make the poster of the message to be more on the topic next time.

Anand

Ok.. after chewing over everyone's comments, I decided to abandon the one month ad experiment for now.

Ahhh... After generating all the curiosity,... cold water. As a husband I am, and hopefully other husbands too, have experience of same.

I was hoping to see the result and then get an idea how good / bad is to go this way.

You see, in mobile platform, users are accustomed now to get ads, if the app is free. But the scenario changes here and the  data of result may have thrown some light on it.

Anyway we will find some better or similar experiment.

Anand

Mouser, after all the discussion (we may continue), I think you got green light for the experiment. Only thing 50-50 is type and placement of ads.

While the discussion here was going on, I did a little research and found that we (the geeks, if you allow me to say) are more worried or rather know about the type / placement of the ads, but the general users take it as the norm and not exception or do not care about it.

In my office when I pointed out about the ads slowing down the page load or looking annoyed, most gave me surprised look. On saying that I can hide these ads with some scripts, they did not show any enthusiasm. In fact they put me on dock that if their work is hampered, I will be responsible.

Good Lord. I know, I use many scripts and addons and may not even see the ads on DC pages, and these people just plain accept it.

We know html, so we know ad script and placement. They do not know html but know that their site opens and works ONLY in IE6 and they will use it, period. Forget about security and html5.

BTW, I am not going to poke my nose to them again.

Regards,

Anand

Thanks ralfs. I am happy that PTL is now more useful to you and hopefully other 'advance' users.

To tell you the truth, I do not want to explain about 'Menu Hotkeys Ini' because I do not like it. I do not want the users to worry if they should write ^P or ^p for Ctrl+Shift+P keys. As a developer I am here to worry about it and the users should get clear checkbox options for it.

That's the reason I mentioned about 'advance users' on the website, as I know they will find it out  smiley but it will also force me to find some quality time to complete it as general users are waiting for it.

These Apps are my love but to pay bills I need the project works too. So I request all to bear with me.

Regards,

Anand

Thanks empyrean for the appreciation.

At last got some time, and completed the "Menu Hotkeys" settings option.

This is intended for advance users having knowledge of editing INI file directly, as I am inundated with project works and not getting proper time to make the GUI for it for general users, which I will make hopefully sooner than later.

Please check the same link in the original post for the download and please send feedback.

Hope, I am able to put smile to some of my users  smiley.

Anand

Mouser, if you ask for permission, expect to get 50-50 answer. You will not be able to keep everyone happy.

There must be very solid reason why in spite of being against ads, you want the ads (though for a short time). I can only guess, but yes, it is difficult to run longer on empty stomach. Donation alone can not sustain where expenses are high.

Instead of putting my self on any side, let me put my feeling of web pages with ads.

I like GMail text only contextual ads on the right side. It even helped me with local ads a few times.
I hate text or image ads in the middle which camouflage itself as a non-ads.
I hate animated ads (some just pissed me off from very decent image sites).

Since we discuss and the text matter of each page of forum and DC site gets change, the "contextual text ads" will look better and may even add some related information to the page.

Obviously, as noted by others, you will not get the correct result in one month time. But if you continue to have something, which does not hamper our usage and visual interaction with our site then, I think, few will complain.

Anand

Hi ralfs, sorry for delay.

When I went to code as I decided, that only ini will have it for advance user, I felt I should make it general for all menu options as another user may require a hotkey for say 'remove all blanks'. So while coding the GUI for the same I got stuck. Then there is year end pressure (for March 2012 end) of my project work going on now.

So I kept it on hold. But now I feel bad, and promise you to give what I promised earlier in a weeks time. I want to see smile on my user's face  smiley. This is my most valuable asset.

Anand

Hmmm..

Got my gift last week but still waiting for the certificate. Actually expected to be the reverse as last year the gift arrived after 3 months. Was planning to upload both photos at a time.

Please wait for another week or so, for the photo. Hope to get the certificate now, as others have started receiving it.

92  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Software to monitor ALL incoming/outgoing connections to computer? on: February 04, 2012, 01:48:39 AM
I was having problem when I was posted in different branch. All our machines are connected to internet with proxy server, and though it has all firewall and anti virus active, many of our machine are infected.

Life goes like this in this branch. But I was worried of my machine. I wanted every connection/port trying to reach my machine to be notified/barred and every application from my machine trying to reach internet to be notified/barred. I needed a simple and small solution.

My search reached Filseclab Personal Firewall http://www.filseclab.com/, a 8 MB freeware.

Ever since I installed it, my machine is safer in this infected zone. All connection to my machine are barred, but I can grant specific one if I need to. All new application just can not visit the internet at their own wish; they need my permission and for most I deny.

It does creates log file if enabled. You can try it and see if it serves your purpose.

Hi Johndim,

I do not have any tablet right now and so can not even visualize how SAN should work on it. But yes your suggestion points where the developers now have to look, beyond Windows.

Thanks for the appreciation.

mouser, I was making changes to my websites and noticed that last year you gave a 'ribbon' image
http://www.donationcoder....ny2011/nany2011ribbon.png which I have used on my site.

Can we get similar or in different design for this year ?

Thanks empyrean for the feedback.

Yes I have a simple Html2Text logic, which remove all html tags, but your suggestion requires to keep the <a> tags. I will see how to give both options. Your suggestion on file name also implies that I have to give some option to user to remove/change the invalid characters.

Actually I wanted PTL to be very simple and straight forward. It should work out of box and mostly for all users. But there are advance users who like to control the things  smiley

Ok I will plan and give the options, but will try to keep it simple and minimal, else it will also become same like other similar apps and slow down.

Anand

2. gift madam's choice
3. if any doubt then goto step 1.
4. loop

Hope I will be able to make madam happy as like my users. Wink

Let me see.

  • - option to lock selected PTL menus (as suggested by TaoPhoenix) so that the most used by user can be at the main popup
  • - short cut key of each menu as decided by user
  • - hotkey setup max 4, on user choice menus (as requested by ralfs and KRSMAV)
  • - Some new menu options to manipulate text like text2html and vice versa, etc. (as suggested by Jibz)

Hmmm.., looks like I can do it.  smiley

But, yes but, the configuration option for the above need some time to make, which is in very short supply to me (oh how I hoped GOD should upgrade the day time to 48 hours).

In a quick response I may give a definable hotkey for paste plain text, via ini itself, so that advance user can get started while I make the dialog windows.

Wish me time.

Regards,

Anand
