The video from EFF on this page:
https://fight215.org/?&am...&source=20150420video
helped me understand what's going on (have to admit I didnt follow any of the links above embarassed )

Also details on what to say to your representative, even a link for us non-US people (you can tweet).

2a & 3a sound great thumbs up

-----------------

[4a] sorry, I'm still confused here
How about this scenario:

  • a) I start the clock on a task
  • b) I stop it for a break
  • c) start it again
  • d) take a break and forget to stop it, so when I come back I stop it, and:
  • e) I modify it manually (or manually using the buttons) to substract my break time

so the total would be (a to b) plus (c to d) minus (time adjusted in e)
-
Is that correct?

--------------------

4b / 5 / 6 sound great thumbs up

Still, at least I can get the most critical stuff out, so I see it as a win, mostly.  If someone comes up with something easier to use, I'd appreciate it.  Note I'm a person who can sometimes tweak existing code, but I can't write all new in AHK, so any requests for serious changes will be things I don't know how to do.  I think I have the tweak points that can be used to fine tune the script located so I can adjust it to my writing style a little better.

well, that's a good start - you did a lot better than me with it smiley
It's possible that someone else will offer to modify it, or come up with something new

Coding snack, anyone?
106  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Looking for a very flexible timer on: April 19, 2015, 07:25:56 AM
Sounds great Edvard thumbs up
I added some numbers for easier reference:

Quote
[1] Right now, the clock is started and stopped via clicking on the clock text itself; the background changes between light green and pink to indicate the status.
seems good!
[1a] I'm presuming whichever Task is running is highlighted in some way?)


Quote
[2] The buttons on either side of the clock allow incrementing the seconds/minutes and I planned to add a third for changing the hours, but then I thought about leaving off the buttons, and just set the time manually, or would the buttons still be convenient?
no need for buttons.
[2a] By 'set the time manually', do you mean simply change the numbers in the time field?


[3] "New Task" sounds good.
Quote
[3a] when the "New Task" button is clicked, it stops the clock, enters the Task and Begin time in the next available row.  I had planned to make it add the End time and Total time when another Task is entered, but that got me thinking... is that really the best way?
Am I understanding correctly here:
you're talking about starting a new task when one is currently running; and saying that the old one would be stopped and given end-time etc.
So, re [3a] I'm unsure: what would / could be better there?


Quote
Regarding editing:
As it is now, once an entry is listed in the grid, it is not editable, because I assume that the time spent on any task is an important metric, and adjusting for breaks and whatnot should be restricted to within the time spent, not fudging the numbers after the fact; BUT:
[4a]  - Should I allow direct editing of the contents after the fact?  Of course, one could simply edit the exported text file if the desire arose, I just think it's too much opportunity for 'cheating' to allow in-grid editing, and besides, at that point why have a timer at all? Why not just fill in arbitrary numbers in an Excel spreadsheet?
[4b]  - How about deleting rows? (I'm actually OK with that idea).
-
[4a] is this correct:
the grid will show a start time, and end time, and a total. The total is *not* end-time minus start-time, but will be whatever was shown in the timer clock, based on starting/stopping of same, and including any modifications made by the user.
^IIUC, then, there would be no need to edit anything in the grid. The only thing that might beg editing would be the description i.e. the task name - but if that's in any way difficult, I would leave it out.
-
[4b] so deleting a row would delete a task?
Could confirmation be requested?


[5] menus sound good


[6] eport to CSV would be what I would use

In the old thread you mention, there's mention of an AHK forum thread (which I couldn't find):

I found this script over at the (official) AHK forums.
Written by Kal_Torak.

It should do what you want, although it doesn't display the stats the way you asked for.
To view the typing speed stats using this script, type "mystats".

attached to that post is an AHK file - just wondering, have you had a look at/tried that?

EDIT//FWIW I cant figure out what exactly it does myself...
(but maybe someone out there can figure it out)
109  Other Software / Html and CSS School / Re: HTML editor for beginners on: April 18, 2015, 05:22:55 PM
I have to admit I'm a bit overwhelmed by trying to choose some software that I think might be good for me - without actually really understanding what I need most. (Because I'm a beginner...)

I think part of my problem is [1] that I need a good reference book (FWIW, I'm looking at HTML5 Foundations (Treehouse Books (Wiley)); CSS3 Foundations (Treehouse Books (Wiley)); Learning Web Design: A Beginner's Guide to HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and Web Graphics)

and
[2] I need a way of saving the things I'm learning about particular tags/styles/methods - I dont know whether any editor would be up to that (ideally including tagging of clips/notes for easy finding again), or if I should default to my IM (InfoQube - which, after inquiring, I'm pretty sure is up to it)
110  Other Software / Html and CSS School / Re: HTML editor for beginners on: April 18, 2015, 05:05:06 PM
Looks good Miles (I'm having a second look this evening) thumbs up

I also got a recommendation elsewhere of NoteTab, which seems to be fairly beginner friendly, while also catering to (more) advanced users - http://www.notetab.com/html-editor.php

One of the things that confuses me is special characters - some software show quite a range, some show very few, some (e.g. Sublime Text, PsPad,) dont seem to cater to special characters at all (or am I missing something there?). I would probably be having at least some German text in any sites I might make, so would be using UTF-8 encoding:

  • AFAIK, in this situation, I just have to (whats-the-word?) use fancy encoding for those characters that are used in HTML, and also for ones that aren't available on my (German-layout) keyboard (e.g. en-dash etc. etc.)

It's just, well, interesting.

it's amazing looking!
(why I was hoping for more info)

^ no worries, hope you feeling better
113  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Animal Friends thread on: April 18, 2015, 01:15:20 AM
^ any info about that animal?
I thought it was an owl first - I can see it's a cat but wondering how real it is (it *looks* real)

found a couple of gems already smiley
116  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: SUGGESTION: Maximum Screen Size on: April 17, 2015, 04:35:32 AM
Is there a way of moving to next/previous images?
If not, would you consider adding that capability?

I guess it's complicated by the fact the window will show newly created screenshots - then you'd need previous file (according to sort in folder) and previous view (last selected file - i.e. last file shown in viewer).

-------------
Escape to minimise would be nice too
I see escape moves from full screen to 'normal' window,
a second escape (or something else) to minimise would be great all the same...

^ FWIW I disabled Adblock (Edge) -
it didnt seem like a good idea to have both working.

I'm very happy with uBlock so far thumbs up
118  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: pound symbol on: April 16, 2015, 03:51:55 PM
The
Alt 0163 using the numberpad works on this laptop.
Alt 163 give me a "ú"
None of the other Letter/Number combos work here.


[I guess if I didnt have a numberpad, I'd have to throw out mine too Curt smiley]
119  Other Software / Html and CSS School / Re: HTML editor for beginners on: April 16, 2015, 12:13:25 PM
Was gravitating towards EditPlus, but have now started using emmet (formerly zen coding) with Sublime Text.

I think it (emmet) can be used with lots of editors.
Even when used very basically, it's a pleasure Kiss


In general:
not getting to do as much as I want - but a little most days.
120  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: pound symbol on: April 16, 2015, 02:45:06 AM
There used be a nice FARR plugin for this kind of thing: Character Table - but it got packaged with a bunch of other aliases/plugins that havent been supported in a couple of years (CZB pack).

If of interest, see

[...] a simple AHK script:

[copy or print]
^1:: Send, £ ; Use Ctrl+1 to send the pound symbol.

added this to my AHK file, thanks thumbs up
works fine on a qwertz (german) laptop keyboard with Win.8.1

I added it too to my AHK, but it doesn't work  tellme tellme tellme

I think they've stolen the pound symbol from your laptop Kalos tongue
would be interesting to see if it (or any of the other solutions) work on other US hardware

EDIT// forgot to say - (this looks like a site problem - or maybe a PaleMoon problem):-
when I click "copy or print" in the code box it opens pop-up which shows an "Â" before the pound symbol - oddly it shows properly if I click "copy or print" when previewing post
123  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: pound symbol on: April 15, 2015, 02:16:36 PM
Did you try skwire's AHK script?

ps was thinking FlexiTimer for the name (?)
125  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Looking for a very flexible timer on: April 14, 2015, 04:14:31 AM
some method of selection on the left there

[attachthumb=#]

It's starting to seem a bit more like a PIM/IM - I wonder are we trying to reinvent the wheel undecided

what do you/ye think?
