I also have one that's command line oriented.  Not very imaginatively named
Run And Place utilities. It's available for download from this page:

http://www.favessoft.com/downloads.html

Avira AntiVir (Premium) tags this as some AutoIT trojan (and doesnt let you copy the name, how silly)
I guess it's the same problem as with AHK programmes - just thought I'd let you know

Is it possible to share Surfulater repo across computers? Is the database structure suitable for synching(via another software) ?

1) dont know
2) I've used SFFS to synch file using partial file updating (whatsit called - delta backup?) and worked from/opened that bakup on occasion.

Hi folks, if you like portable software, swing by our site at www.zenosys.com and have a look. We've got some freeware there too as well. All of our software offerings share a common goal and rationale in that its low cal, no fuss, and ready to go right out of the box.

neither
www.zenosys.com nor http://www.zenosys.com/toolkit/index.html are currently working (here at any rate)
I just get a blank screen...

5230  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / can I add new favourite to "end" of list? on: March 11, 2009, 07:00:57 AM
didnt add any new favourites for months

when I added a new item lately to favourites it took over the #1 position -
this means the shortcuts for all other items in favourites changes.
I'd gotten very used to my small bunch of favourites so I keep pasting the wrong ones now!

Is there a way to change this sequence or
could you change this so as in future new items automatically go to the end of the list/queue?

thanks smiley

has anyone any news about the patch availability from Adobe? only recently the precursor of this bug was covered in DC, where it was mentioned that "patches aren't likely to be ready until March 11th, 2009".

Dangerous Adobe Reader Vulnerability In the Wild

going off-topic briefly
Lanux, you said earlier in thread that you use portable version of reader
Could you recommend a source for that -
I realise they'll take a bit longer to incorporate the Adobe update, whenever that comes ...
5232  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Acrobat bug can lead to malware installs without even opening an infected file on: March 10, 2009, 11:25:38 AM
There's reasons people are "anti" big companies, or quick to give them a hard time.

The big companies tend to stop focusing on the software and what their software is meant to do.
What do they focus on - you could write a book about that. I would throw in; egos, money, "power", stocks, and the fear of losing what they have which ironically seem to drive them to do even more things that turn people away from them.
So people start using Foxit, or free or smaller Anti-virus programmes, or Linux, (even!) and then (sometimes) the big companies cop on, like Symantec trying to slim down their anti-virus etc., Adobe speeding up start times for Acrobat Reader.

As for helping them, I'm slow to do that - there's been a bug in Acrobat reader all the way through version 8.* I didnt report it.
The bug was that the default (for graphics programmes) switching between pan and zoom in/out shortcuts didnt work properly - why should I report that, they MAKE Illustrator and Photoshop! - so they could not have missed this bug. And the message in the fact it's not fixed?
Have you ever tried to use their forums - I did early last year over a period of time and I've rarely ever had to wait so bleeding long for pages to load - what's the message there for me ?! Btw, I know one probably reports bugs elsewhere.

I still use Acrobat Reader (or whatever they call it these day). It is my favourite reader Grin but as you can see I'm not too happy about it Wink

Message:
* Up to 3 times as fast due to improvements in Autohotkey.

5234  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Surfulater 3 - huge price hike (166%) + where is the Firefox add-on? on: March 10, 2009, 08:45:19 AM
That's a change of stance - the original wording was free upgrade if purchased within the last 90 days but there was a time limit on previous purchase before which upgrade was not possible as an additional condition (I can't remember and no longer have the email but I think it was 2 years).
Yes,
the email announcing the release of v.3 said two years.

I think it was simply a case of what they wanted to say and what they said were two different things, as opposed to it being an actual change of stance (but that's just my interpretation, who knows, maybe it was a change of stance - if so, a sensible one)

Re: Surfulater upgrading policy

I've asked for a clarification in their forum about upgrade pricing
will let you know when I get a response

well it turns out this whole upgrading thing was a misunderstanding based on the wording in the email sent out to announce Version 3

Hi Tom,
Anyone that has purchased Version 2 can upgrade to Version 3 at 50% off as per the "What is your upgrade policy?" section on our FAQ and Purchase Web pages. If they purchased Version 2 within 90 calendar days of the release of Version 3, then the upgrade is free. I hope that is clear.

So from Version 2 you can upgrade to version 3 @ 50% off

thanks a lot Carol

oups - I meant the Ass EEE PC BOX - the "desktop" computer. I should stated that clearer (but it is in thread title!)

I had also meant to post the page where I had looked at specifications - which was what I was referring to with "they never..."
They never do say what a product doesnt have - I can understand it but I hate that approach to business
5240  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Asus Eee Box on: March 09, 2009, 08:49:04 AM
Well, at least Asus recognized it and owned up to the mistake. Bought one of these for the wife recently w/Linux loaded for travel and it's really a nifty machine. I see the attraction as "highly useful toy."

thought I may as well ask in this thread as any
does it have a modem ? (they never tell you these things anymore, as if the world has dsl)

thinking of recommending it to an older relative who was considering a laptop but really need a (bigger) monitor (I can relate to that myself) but they dont have broadband. THey'd just be using it for text/writing and the odd bit of internet

I'm used to double-clicking tray icons for the main window to pop up. So the tray icon disappeared as the main window was popping up, but apparently clicking the tray icon again minimized it to tray, but the tray icon never showed up again. Good thing I had the MiniBar open or else I might never have been able to open the main window again!
a pre-emptive vote against any possibility of changing that to a double click (to bring it from the tray) cheesy
double-click tray icon simply launches it here btw

(one of my pet hates is having to double-click those tiny icons, I prefer to right-click and select open)
5244  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Maxto-very interesting... on: March 09, 2009, 04:13:18 AM
I havent tried this one

if you want a couple tips on grid-move, well,
this is the easiest way to use it IMO:-

Winkey+G shows a numbered grid. Press the number for the location you want and focused window goes there
If you dont like the grid press N key to show next and so on.
I generally only use one grid layout so it's just Win+G and 1 or 2 or, etc.

It's currently using 3908K (3.8MB or so) Private bytes here.
Which I do find important even with 2GB ram, try running 20 little (or not so little) apps @ 30MB apiece and you'll need a lot of memory to have enough for the really hungry ones Wink
actually I just checked in Process Explorer & I have exactly 20 (non-XP/hardware-related) apps running apart from File manager and browser..
5245  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: AHK Coding Snack Idea: Deluxe AHK Script Manager (AXEM) on: March 08, 2009, 02:19:03 PM
since I added that code (see last post)
when I minimise or click hide button on axem it seems to close completely - It's not in the sys tray and I cant find it in Proccess Explorer. I dont think this is expected behaviour, it used to show in the tray anyway

Oddly, I just noticed - if I close the axem window it then shows in the tray cheesy
5246  DonationCoder.com Software / Coding Snacks / Re: Quick Simple MP3 Player on: March 08, 2009, 01:48:41 PM
I call it (the "system notification area") the tray - if it was called the tray at one stage that's good enough for me.
If fact, especially if there's no problem with confusion with anything else that might be called "the tray", I see no reason to try calling it that other mouthful of a name Wink

veering even further off-topic ...
after reading this comment from that link I'm experimenting with Taskbar on top of screen
Quote
You touched on something that has bothered me for years when you referred to the taskbar as "that thingie at the bottom of the screen". The taskbar can be docked to any edge of the screen and I HATE it when applications assume that it's at the bottom and position themselves accordingly. I dock mine at the top and I've often wondered why it was placed at the bottom by default. Almost all applications have their menus and toolbars at the top, and when I'm working on something or reading I usually scroll so that the working area is in the middle or the upper half of the screen. Also, menus in applications are almost always pull-down, not pull-up as in the bottom-docked taskbar. So given all of that, why would I want to drag my cursor clear down to the bottom of the screen to switch applications or access the Start menu?

This list was compiled by Crush. Updated using a version from 2009-02-14

Crono wrote a batch file that made it possible to convert it from a spreadsheet to this:

Okay, just to confirm I've finalised the updating of the list combining a list from Crush (2009-02-14) with the current list (which was also based on an older list from Crush)

added a few more new ones and updated a few more old ones Wink

5249  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: AHK Coding Snack Idea: Deluxe AHK Script Manager (AXEM) on: March 06, 2009, 03:52:11 PM
I wrote some code for starting scripts when Axem launches. It will save the checked scripts to the .ini file, when Axem is reloaded it will read the .ini file and restart all of the scripts that were running before.
...

Add "GoSub, RunStartup" after "GoSub, ShowWindow"

1 Add the RunStartup subroutine...
Formatted for AutoIt with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1.  
2 Add the following code to the "READINI" subroutine...   
Formatted for AutoIt with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1.  
3 And add the following code to the "WRITEINI" subroutine...   
Formatted for AutoIt with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1.  

this would be great  smiley

I'm looking at the AHK file
so I
Add "GoSub, RunStartup" after "GoSub, ShowWindow"
I add 1 directly after "GoSub, RunStartup"
I add 2 directly after "GoSub READINI"
I add 3 directly after "GoSub WRITEINI" -
but I see there's two of them ... the first is followed by "Winhide", the second with "Gosub, ButtonRescan"
so I go for the first

Well that works (I'm a bit gobsmacked - not that it shouldnt work - but maybe that it shouldnt work if I do it lol)
so thanks for that Ryan_S  Thmbsup smiley

Afterthoughts:
I hope I used the most recent AHK version undecided
On a different note, there's something in this post that seems to block previewing it after the first preview - I tried in opera and then FF. First I thought it was with all posts but it 's only with this one - who knows, maybe it's a friday night thing ... maybe it's that I emptied the code boxes in the quote
