26  News and Reviews / Mini-Reviews by Members / Re: FreeFileSync - automated backup - Mini-Review on: March 28, 2014, 05:09:09 AM
Installed on Windows 8 laptop yesterday - kept getting an error:

FreeFileSync - An exception occurred
Cannot open file "GlobalSettings.xml".

Error Code 32: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. (CreateFile)

I created an empty xml file with that name in the programme folder & copied into a 'Bin' subfolder there. It still didnt work so I gave up - today it's working though (didnt reboot - just hibernated, so not sure what resolved it).


Current version has no 'extras' selected - user has to make a choice which seems fair enough.

Thanks for the bug report about pixelation, will fix.
What would be a better default hotkey for deleting image?

thanks mouser,
re changing the default delete hotkey - you're going to have the problem of upsetting all the people who are used to using the currrent one... Do whatever you think best (for me, best would be anything except Ctrl+Q, *but* saying that, I have an AHK script that uses Ctrl+Q for close app/window on my Win7 machine. I can just try on my second machine - and see if it that also works on Win8, in which case I would no longer have the 'problem').

hi Paul, good to see you again!

NimbleBox looks good, might give it a go.

I believe Easy Screencast Recorder is very much a work in progress. I didnt have much success with it myself (but cant remember the details now).

Well, I know a *lot* more about engines than I did before (which was almost nothing) thumbs up
Love the way it's self-perpetuating (is that the right description?) - well obviously, and unfortunately, not quite like a perpetual-motion machine.
(You're probably laughing at me now, but I swear, I've never even wondered before how engines actually work :p )

New version of the image toolbar, based on the one above.
I added the "Sort by" buttons from the Dopus 11 images toolbar.

with viewer on:


with the viewer off:


  • Buttons on the left convert according to whether left or right-clicked
  • Rotate L|R seems clear enough (this and above greyed out when no file selected)
  • "Sort by" text is a label button - makes for large spacing between it and the next, but still seemed the best solution. (I'll probably remove the label myself). Current sort is highlighted.
  • See notes below re setup

# the toolbar initially went under the statusbar - I had to go to "Status Bar" in prefs, and select "keep at bottom of the lister".
# in Dopus 11 the images toolbar appears by default when you change view to thumbnails. To change this, search for "Toolbars" in prefs, and under File display mode/Toolbars change toolbar that will show when Thumbnail view is used (also see location). FWIW I prefer to have the toolbar showing all the time - I like being able to see the sort at a glance.
# follow first link in this post if you need help adding toolbar - or read the manual  : )

There are *no* shortcuts in the toolbar - related ones suggested:
See also post about shortcuts to toggle/change sort;
and post about toggling Thumbnail/Detail views

Toolbar attached - I zipped it as not accepted otherwise.

hi asrjcb
I dont know if this one works any more - check out this thread/post:

Since CZB's Google Translate script doesn't work anymore (because of the Google Api changes) I thought I'd make a script that loads the GoogleTranslate page in FARR with a given word.
36  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: How to name file as HourMinuteSecond taken? on: March 18, 2014, 04:27:22 PM
Fantastic.  I will try it.

Like this I assume:.

Custom Date Format:
for desired 24hr clock.

 - - - using %time% instead of %H%M%S

Using %time% is the same as setting customdate[time] as you have done. I'm not sure though - it could be simply getting the default time format from windows - I have 24hr time format.
Just a different method - i.e. your way is fine, probably even better because it says exactly what you want thumbs up

FWIW attached is how it looks here (note filename)
37  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Syncovery/SFFS open to suggestions for support for various cloud services on: March 18, 2014, 06:06:54 AM
Syncovery (Super Flexible File Synchronizer) have extended support to DropBox, Google Drive, Box.net, OneDrive and Rackspace.
Per email:

I would like to announce the latest Windows version 6.55 of Syncovery, which supports the following new cloud services: DropBox, Google Drive, Box.net, OneDrive, and Rackspace.

I also want to add these to the Mac version but would like to hear from you if you are interested in using these cloud services on Mac.

Services we have been supporting for a longer while include:
Amazon S3, Amazon Glacier, Microsoft Azure, Google Docs

In addition, any cloud service that can be accessed via WebDAV, FTP, or SSH/SFTP can be used.

Google Drive is essentially a replacement for Google Docs. It will basically see the same files, so you could simply switch an existing profile over from Google Docs to Google Drive. However, there are differences regarding native Google Docs documents and document conversions. Google Drive has no conversion options. An advantage of Google Drive is that it can retain the Last Modified timestamps of files that you upload with Syncovery. Google Drive also implements the choice of using the Recycle Bin for deleted files or not.

Because Google Drive works differently with converted documents, it may not be able to replace the Google Docs API in some cases. Both options are still available in the protocol selection. When you switch protocols, please check if everything works correctly with manual runs of your jobs before automating them.

[...] alleged alliteration at?

well I dont know was that intentional, (I suspect it was), but I enjoyed it anyway :-)

edit// I see Wikipedia defines it as:

Alliteration is the repetition of the same sounds or of the same kinds of sounds at the beginning of words or in stressed syllables of an English language phrase
(my emphasis)

I always thought it was just the initial letters in the words.

doesnt seem to be a literal translation, but I get the idea ;-)
41  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Against TED talks on: March 17, 2014, 08:44:32 AM
I can put up with almost anything TED does so long as presentations like this one hit the widest possible audience.

And it's dripping with agenda...

Any time someone comes out saying "think of all the poor/starving/children/women/whatf*ckingever", I want to puke. The vast majority of the time it's an agenda and when you start following things back, it's the exact opposite of what it looks like. "I am Ukrainian" was a good example of a psyop. F*ck that.

I watched the entire video. And it looks cool, but the agenda there makes me question what's going on. Some people are just pawns...

My distrust of TED has only grown deeper.

If TED disappeared, the world would be a much better place.

Atacking TED and saying you suspect it because of it's sponsers is fair enough.
But for me, and others I suspect, the problem here is that you explicitly attack this particular video, with no real reason, with no backing for your 'dripping with agenda' claim. And that's how you lauch into the topic.

Apart from the fascination, the technique is very interesting.

took me a short while to figure out what was happening there...

Well done cmori!
I was going to reply earlier but was unable to figure it out myself...

I see now it also works (here) if you just use %time% and remove the underscore as you have done.
45  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: T-Clock - Can't get rid of military time!! on: March 16, 2014, 11:09:41 AM
Have you tried this version too? - T-Clock 2010 (by Stoic Joker, here on donationcoder)

do you have a custom format?
I normally use 24hr clock, using custom format.
If I turn off the custom format, the 12hr clock works fine here with these settings. I just ticked the AM/PM and 12hr boxes - the lower one should work with custom format (needs the 'tt' after the time).
