[...] And can I post the exe and dll as an attachment?  Is that appropriate.  I definitely would like the feedback and the forum to discuss design decisions.  I've got a few things to fix but give me a week.

you'd have to zip those type of files (or whatever).  Sounds very interesting look forward to it smiley

If you get drunk and screw up your computer, they shouldn't have to fix it. </sarcasm>
tellme excuse me ma'am, have you been drinking and computing tellme

Of course,
I find my attitude affects my computer - if I'm impatient or stressed computer problems go up accordingly (magnetic energy maybe? or just the negative )))vibes((( or just pressing those damn keys too quick embarassed). So maybe they should give me a personality test or put a hidden camera in my computer with sensory testing equipment to make sure I dont void the warranty  aaaaghhh... :-)

I would have thought get cash back meant that too (it even says 'check' doesnt it) but there's that dangerous * after it, with no sign of what it refers to at the bottom...

I was reading the back catalogue of Dilbert for a while there, it's great stuff but it started depressing me after a while cause there were all these comments saying my boss is like that, my company is like that (like the example here)

Here's a recent Lifehacker post Top 10 Ergonomic Upgrades for Your Workspace
and
they have this video embedded
Video podcast - exercises for tendonitis and carpal tunnel which they better describe as ["b]Use exercises to ward off RSI[/b]" - they're very good exercises if you spend a lot of time at the keyboard and/or using the mouse -
it feels really good to sttretch those tendons Wink

(I'm still a huge fan of the Gokhale 'method' btw - things just get better & better learning posture via her method - this from someone who usually gives up 'that kind of thing' after a week or two)

Coeluh, do you mean this:-
as each icon is shown in the alt+tab dialogue, the corresponding window will show (in front) on screen ?

Go into options -> Folder Browsing -> Check the "Don't differentially score files in explicit directory browsing mode"

(a bit of a sheepish) Thanks!
I promise to study options & screencasts before I ask any more questions embarassed smiley
5187  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: "Mail" instead of "Thunderbird" on: November 22, 2009, 11:32:28 AM

one last (?!) query:

I dont seem to be able to give the files in the folder preference (scorewise) and I dont understand the sort either. it's always the same sort but not alphabetical - they appear to be sorted by created date but cause there's currently only a few files I cant be 100% sure of that.

Not that important at the mo but, as I add more files to the folder, it would be helpful to know how that aspect (sort) works & if there's any options there.
5188  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: "Mail" instead of "Thunderbird" on: November 22, 2009, 11:05:49 AM
as far a learning resource, there are dozens of screencasts here:

http://www.donationcoder.com/3ds/

ah yes, thanks - I'll start off with the alias ones - I actually meant though: is there a resource for learning reg-ex for absoloute beginners (that you, or anyone could recommend) ?
5189  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: "Mail" instead of "Thunderbird" on: November 22, 2009, 09:29:17 AM
the regex and $$1 lets you filter the contents of the directory in case you didn't guess already smiley

I'll take your word for that lol
if I need to actually filter for filetype at some stage I'll ask again - or is there a resource somewhere for people who dont have a clue ? (i.e. understandable for people who dont have a clue

Going back to the interface - I think what is most confusing (for me still) is that when I go to edit an alias, the window is titled "Edit group alias" and the first field says "Group alias name" - but if I'm editing a single alias that first field should say "Alias name" or if it's doubling up for both single & group aliases it could say "Group or Alias name" (?)
or
am I misunderstanding things?
5190  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: "Mail" instead of "Thunderbird" on: November 22, 2009, 09:07:59 AM
so to make an alias show this more easily, you can create a regex alias that matches like ^nn(.*)$
and in results put: dosearch E:\Portable\Note\ $$1

try that.

thanks mouser, works a treat thumbs up

5192  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Apple's App Store Mistake on: November 22, 2009, 08:44:52 AM

Very interesting.  Apple does demand control, that's mostly why I avoid their products no matter how cool I think they are.  I have not once bought an apple product in my life, yet I think they are super cool.  I don't think I can say that for any other company.
While I realize that terms have a tendency to change meaning over time, Apple does not qualify for any meaning of cool that I'm familiar with. Ultra Trendy... Yes.

cool because they make their stuff look really good - that's one of the big reasons they're ultra-trendy/popular after all. And as superboyac says, they 'innovate' a bit.

But no, they arent being very cool are they !!
5193  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / How to show (just) contents of particular folder in FARR window ? on: November 22, 2009, 08:38:02 AM
I know this is probably covered elsewhere - I did search but it's very difficult to narrow it down:

Can I use FARR to show a particular folder contents (also presumably best done using an alias ?)
e.g. my Note folder to show my current notes
Say with alias NN, FARR will show the just contents of that folder.

If I add NN to the alias as 'Reg expression' just the folder shows & launches (in file manager) if 'opened'
If I add an * to end of the path, no joy either ( E:\Portable\Note\*)

I'm slowly figuring out the interface - lost the alias for a while & then realised it was under 'myaliases.alias'
Was also confused by the two tickboxes - one beside the alias, one top-right but see now that one is for individual aliases & the other for the group (for a beginner who only has one alias in the 'group' - eh, sometimes things sink in slowly!)

please report the false positive here, and i will do the same:
http://forums.avg.com/us-...d&act=show&id=395
No no - it's Avira "AntiVir" - I'll have a look for a link

Dont worry - I'll report it  ( http://forum.avira.com/wb...age=Board&boardID=131 )

note:
when I downloaded the file & scanned it I got no warning - since that I can go to the webpage no problem.

So I think it's something in the webpage or url - I'll report it on the forum


EDIT/ done

I was having trouble updating from 2.75.02

DCupdater says said "get update failed" [read on]

so I went to
http://www.donationcoder....reenshotcaptor/index.html
& clicked on download link & Avira AntiVir Premium blocks it saying:

I added their explanatory link in there which is a lot of blah blah blah
Could it be possible that Avira was blocking dcUpdater from downloading it too? - yes, that was the problem!

Is it any help if I contact them or how does one prove it's not dubious?

5199  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: General brainstorming for Note-taking software on: November 20, 2009, 03:52:04 PM
I have read this thread and all or most others on organizing and I wanted to get some feedback.

What has been on my mind is finding a note repository or PIM that is capable of presenting a view of all my saved notes or appointments or tasks and to me this is important, not just their respective titles or headers but a more detailed view. There are examples that come close like Do-Organizer and others which have 'reports' but I believe these are more tailored for printing purposes. May be what I am looking for is to have my notes arranged on the screen like a mind mapper but again may be.

Any thoughts? Point me to one discussed in this or other threads that may come close? smiley

I almost posted a link for Text Block Writer - well why not - Text Block Writer which I havent tried yet but came across at this great blog here which it turns out is yours embarassed lol

I have no idea how to write an alias...

neither have I . .
I'd simply make another shortcut for Thunderbird, rename it to 'Mail' & place it somewhere that FARR looks
