It's very interesting to learn the history about Corel trying to make a go of it as a desktop OS -
pity they didnt make it...

GRUB4DOS and Partition Saving sound good. But I need a "fully legit" solution instead of WinImage. I have UltraISO myself, but that is a personal license and not one I can let the folks at work use. And I don't have floppy drives on these machine, so I want a virtual floppy solution.

so you're looking for free for commercial use -
have you checked out Steven Avery's thread here listing software free for commercial use?
Here's the post about backup etc:

just passing through here so have only glanced at previous posts
Personally I wouuld have kept all time stamps (or at least the logfile name/timestamp) as
2009-11-11 21:00
or something comparable e.g.
2009_11_11-2100
to avoid the : & spaces in the filename

I know Skwire you say some people have a problem with 24hr clock but I think everyone understands it & it sorts logically

overlapping post:-

Notes:
1. When multiple logifles are checked, how will they be displayed in the main viewer? In a chrono-order? Will there be any visual grouping, such that entries from different logfiles are separated somehow?
2. Minor suggestion: to keep with the current trend of searchboxes in apps and online sites, move searchbox to upper right corner, in line with the toolbar.
3. Consider changing the style of timestamps, such that they are visually separated from entries. My preference: slight reduction in font size, and bolded.
4. With search filters in place, my next want will be to "export the current view" to another text or .csv file.  At the very least, I should be able to select text in the viewer pane and copy it elsewhere, but more advanced users might want to keep the logfile markup intact for their purposes.
5. Quibble: I prefer a white background for the log viewer pane rather than gray. It's consistent with the look and feel of most other apps.
6. I already see 'select all' and 'select none' functions are planned. CTRL-CLICK on a checkbox should also toggle the behavior.
7. Does the search also respond to dates/times? Obviously, if the user changes his timestamps midstream, he's up his own creek with how consistently this would work.
8. Earlier request, repeated: When AnuVu is started by opening a .anu file, it should display the logfile, plus any other logfiles in the same directory. This is for users who end up moving their logfiles around.
9. What if a user has logfiles in multiple folders but wants to display them together with AnuVu? This strikes me as a fairly rare use case, so I don't think it's necessary to address it, but I feel it should be mentioned.

2) I prefer search box where it is - one would probably often open this from systray - mouse moves up naturally to search box - also not taking from actual viewer pane

4) csv would be nice [answered above]

6) +1 (would be nice anyway) [Ctrl+Click in one box would select/deselect all]

8] could be very helpful if working from usb stick (dont know if that possible?)

'edit field' sounds great (does that mean I can actually 'edit' - presumably copy text at least?)

I think I'm getting carried away again !!
But copyable text would be great

sounds very good to me just refreshed & got your last post:

will one be able to search all log files via the viewer ?
or would you recommend using another app?

A simple text search would be easy to implement since each entry is properly delimited with a "§`r`n" sequence.

that would be nice (= one vote)


Right...this is where it gets fuzzier since custom timestamps are allowed.  Furthermore, I haven't designed Anuran with this in mind.  It's not really a time-tracker.  It's more of a "what were you doing/thinking/feeling at said time" application.  This behaviour is more in line with doctorfrog's original request.

I'm a fan of the "one tool for one job" way of coding.  With that in mind, I think there are plenty of time/project trackers out there that do a much better job than anything I could code.  Please don't take this as me discounting your suggestions, tomos.  I really appreciate the feedback.   smiley smiley smiley

no worries Skwire Wink - just an idea, I was unsure of it myself & realised it might not be suitable
(BTW I like TaskLog a lot but never really used it due to aforementioned problem - so I've bumped that thread)

5184  DonationCoder.com Software / Skrommel's Software / Re: TaskLog v1.1 - Small bug and an improvement or 2... on: November 11, 2009, 08:11:01 AM
is there any way you can get TaskLog to recognise when the computer goes into hibernation mode -
I tend to use this when i leave computer for any length of time & of course I forget to tell TaskLog and
& come back to

still at task XYZ running for 168mins?

I'll give this a friendly bump smiley -
standby doesnt work properly on my machine so I use hibernation fairly often...

we might be reinventing the wheel with the time-tracker idea
I was just having another look at Skrommel's TaskLog - mind you after doing a search I see I had a problem with hibernation which I use relatively often (my computer has problems with standby)

TaskLog
You define your tasks - it logs amount of time spent on each (asks at user selected intervals)
Saves in a csv file, which it can also sort before opening (in Notepad)

Re: the timetracker idea -
one would really have to indicate when you're starting on a project & when ending - otherwise:
if all other entries are filtered out you wouldnt know at which times you began / ended

Thanks to tinjaw's recent post, someone on friendfeed told me about this one:

Anti-virus/anti-spyware/anti-rootkit/firewall (and more) intended for commercial use.

Standard version of FortiClient Endpoint Security Suite is freeware.

http://www.forticlient.com/standard.html

found this (unfortunately) not very promising review (you could call it a mini-review/test).

According to one comment (from Prosa)

Reviews of Privatefirewall
  Rating 4 out of 5 stars
  by CyberDoc999
      Reviewing 7.0 (Oct 15, 2009)
      Firewall Works great......
      and it is free !
      the HIPS (Host-based Intrusion Prevention System)
      is Lame.....
      I tested it on 5 differents programs and it blocked none of them....
      HIPS that worked would make this a killer app

Has anyone else on this forum tried Privatefirewall out? If you just wanted a firewall and no HIPS, then presumably this could be quite a useful firewall proggy.

this one is also free for commercial use (havent tried it)

FWIW I'm really liking Online Armor's new pricing structure with $19.95 for a single user license for OA Premium.

getting back on topic - anyone know does that work well with AntiVir (Avira) (full version)

edit/ found this via search
[...] my normal defense system of Avira and Online Armor is generally strong [...]

I guess I was guaranteed to get the reaction I did (by calling his post 'bitchy') = I not perfect either (that was a land :p)

Try interim build 1.0.3.9 and see if that fixes it.  I used a different method for the enter/ctrl-enter strokes in this version.

smiley sorted  thumbs up

One very minor thing - when I press Ctrl+Enter to go to new line, it jumps down two lines

Hmmm...odd.  It doesn't behave that way for me.   huh

anyone else getting that behaviour ?

just for the record:
XP SP2 up-to-date
cant think of any thing else that could be relevant. (maybe the settings? see below)

Have people considered using this for basic time-tracking ?
e.g. if I always lead my note with say ARD for project #1 & SURV for #2 etc,
then if I was able to sort notes alphabetically (& by time) I could roughly see how long I was working on each project

The idea has been in the back of my mind - to be honest I havent really considered it practically beyond what I've written here - just throwing it out there as is Wink

hi Skwire, I'm only starting to use it this morning,
so far I can say:

~ hotkeys are working well,
~ I just had a quick look at the log (I have it set to archive once a day), the 24 hour clock is looking good

One very minor thing - when I press Ctrl+Enter to go to new line, it jumps down two lines

Am I the only one who thinks MP3 should've died a slow death by now?

as someone who hasnt a clue I ask:
are there alternatives that dont involve huge filesizes - or should we just get used to large filesizes ?
(I know, there's loads of space on current hard-drives...)
