101  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Automation Is The Hot New Game That Lets You Design Cars From Scratch on: March 24, 2015, 09:51:46 AM
Quote
When I first noticed that Automation was in development, I thought ‘here goes another build-your-own car game where reality and basic engineering principles don’t exist. Oh well, I’ll keep my eye on it.’ I downloaded the demo, and curiosity eventually got the best of me. I contacted the developers who kindly supplied a copy of the full game under the condition that I wouldn't reveal anything until it went to early release on Steam. As I began exploring the game, my desk became the epicentre of a massive facepalm storm. What is wrong with me? Why did I let other games destroy my faith? Why didn’t I get my hands on this game sooner?

2015-03-24:

Fully updated this review for version 1.3.3.0
Still a great fan of this app, use it every day - thanks to MilesAhead Thmbsup

Edit:  I read the review.  One minor typo in the version number you have 1.2.3.0 instead of 1.3.2.0.

I think you covered the utility's functionality nicely.  I am very glad you enjoy using it

Thanks! Review updated for 1.3.3.0 and reworked a bit to be more comprehensive -

Tomos, I'll remind you that the dc apps don't have a built in updater -- just a built-in update CHECKER.
So I'm afraid that's not an option.

You might be thinking of using the optional dcupdater standalone tool -- but i'm trying to phase that out, just because it's more trouble than it's worth i think..

ah sorry about that
(if dcupdater is installed, it works as I described)

Where are you guys getting the betas from??

you usually get it from the first post in this thread - but I see it has been officially released.

If it hasnt been offered to you yet, try right-clicking farr icon in the tray and check for updates.

Does the in-app updater (dcupdater) work?
(right-click tray icon of dc app >check for updates - then update within that app)
107  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: how can I do this in excel? on: March 24, 2015, 05:17:53 AM
he's given you a template file - all you need is to test it with one linked file to see if it works in practice.

^when you've done that^ you can worry about whether you need an app to list files (the "directory reader")

Tomos, the process I designed is meant to tie right in to a dir reader because it produces the complete index list of folders all at once - so he will need it pretty quickly. Part of the point is the dir reader "can't lie" vs typing them in by hand. So for example if there are client names, and he enters them by hand, and one of them is something like Schaefeirmann, whoever is doing data entry by hand will get that wrong 3 times out of 10, whereas the dir reader produces a "cold facts" dump where it cannot be wrong with random spelling errors. That's part of the system I designed.

^ I'm actually very interested in the process you describe. My point was that he try it with one or two ('manually') linked files first to see if it works - a proof of concept - then he could look at setting up the more complex system.

@kalos, it seems to me it would be a good idea if you showed your manager a few of the replies here - or the whole of the two threads. They might reconsider.

I'd seen an older version of this a while back - this smoother and higher resolution. Very impressive storm timelapse... looks a bit like a ufo

@kalos, I'm quite a basic spreadsheet user - I have used relative links (but not using excel), and I can follow Tao's posts (in particular #12 & #14).
Try rereading them and give it a go and see if it works - he's given you a template file - all you need is to test it with one linked file to see if it works in practice.

112  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: The Dreams thread... on: March 23, 2015, 05:05:57 PM
^ Dont know if it's true, but I've heard flying dreams are related to times of big change in life, or very stressful times - like growing up. Around ten years of age would fit that I guess?
I used have them quite a bit in my teens and early twenties. Like you say Miles - like being underwater, but in the air.
I always really enjoyed them though smiley
113  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: how can I do this in excel? on: March 23, 2015, 04:22:02 PM
... the other thread, where you asked exactly the same question ...

wondering could the two threads be merged (anyone?)

115  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: MoveIt 1.3.1.0 on: March 22, 2015, 12:06:00 PM
Great to see this being updated Miles thumbs up
I still using an older version on my win 7 desktop - and am just after adding it to my Win 8.1 laptop.

Also just updated the mini-review I had written (a couple of years ago now!).
  • I still have to add the hotkey to close all Explorer windows (havent used it yet)
  • also seem to have missed out on whatever the middle-mouse button does [edit] I see info about it in the about box [/edit]
  • [edit] I see I also missed out on other stuff from the about box - will add [/edit]
Was wondering if you could skim though the review and tell me if I missed out on any of the features, or if anything else needs to be updated?
Thanks smiley

thank you for the encouragement -- i can't speak for all developers but for me personally it makes all the difference to have some friendly encouragement  Thmbsup

I wouldn't know what to do without FARR  Thmbsup

I havent used this machine in about a week which maybe affects the results - keeping that in mind:

mru plugin using mrua shows:
     a) recent files from today and yesterday
     b) recent files from previous time machine was used (last week)

historyr shows:
     1) recent files from today and yesterday
     2) dopus and dopus viewer exe (from 64bit programme folder)**
     3) lots of exe files from my download folder mostly dating around 2012 - and most of which (or maybe all) have not been accessed in years (FWIW see shot below)

** It is not showing other apps I used since install of beta.

where can I check the settings for it?

thanks mouser thumbs up

will be interesting to try historyr - I use FARR plugin: FARR Most Recently Used a fair bit (but in a very basic manner: typing mrua to show all most recently used files).

121  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Recommendations for a free image viewer with strong editing features on: March 18, 2015, 05:53:37 PM
# 5 - fast image browsing - or more specifically, fast thumbnail loading - can be extremely important if you're browsing large folders, or also displaying content from sub-folders.
-
My favourite from that POV is ExifPro, but note:
browsing folders is not particularly user-friendly (wont show tree view above current folder)
costs ~ $20

I would ideally want a viewer to be tied into my file-manager - but none of the file-managers have done what it takes to make a decent basic image-viewer (I'm talking about an image-viewer as a separate window showing images, from which you can easily open the image you're viewing in an external editor and/or copy the path of the image).

I cant comment about image organisers (I do own one, but havent used it enough to comment on it - there is an image orgnaizer thread here on dc, if you do a search you may find some helpful info - I have some more comments about ExifPro there).

123  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Sorry, Ebooks. These 9 Studies Show Why Print Is Better on: March 09, 2015, 03:58:22 PM
Well, the difference in that approach is the fact that when you purchase a DVD and/or a CD, on the physical media, you have the digital media.  It's just a different mode of distribution.

Books don't have that advantage.  And I think that's one of the reasons they started offering physical media with digital- they'd rather give it to you in their format than you ripping it and getting it in a format they can't control.

yeah, I dont see it happening - would be nice though...
124  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Sorry, Ebooks. These 9 Studies Show Why Print Is Better on: March 09, 2015, 03:12:00 PM
^ how about buy a book and get a free ebook 'rip'  - like Amazon are doing for CD's

[attachthumb=#]

and use both.

FWIW, at the moment, I'm working on a reference volume about an archaeological excavation:
it might never appear online or in digital format, but the illustrations will be downloadable - and also a spreadsheet with all 'features' referenced in some detail, including relative links to the related (searchable) illustrations.
Idea being that one would work with both the hardcopy and the digital information:
  • Read about a feature of interest (there's almost 3,000 :p) in the book;
  • go to spreadsheet for overview of info related to the feature:
  • click link for the feature - relevant PDF illustration opens; search for feature number, click to zoom in

It's not high-tech in any way, but it already makes for a very efficient way of working with a large project like this.
125  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Looking for program that can copy folder hierarchy with checkboxes and size est. on: March 09, 2015, 10:12:16 AM
I don't know...  Seems more logical that if you checkmark a folder, then the contents should get checked....  YOu could then (optionally) uncheck some.

yeah - that's what me and mouser meant
although I see he's more interested in folders:

A flat source file list may be useful in some cases, but not in my case -- I need to be able to quickly choose large folders from a hierarchy for copying.
