5276  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Converting Spreadsheet to Table in forum on: March 01, 2009, 11:10:55 AM
hi Crono smiley

I'm trying to update that disc catalogue list, I've changed computers so I've freshly installed sed
I saved your code (below) as  Convert.bat
I'm attempting - unsuccessfully so far - to convert a csv file via drag-drop (I removed spaces from csv file name - that was initially a problem last time)
Separater is comma

Sounds like your SED is not found. To make sure, open a command prompt ([Windows]+[R] -> cmd). Type "sed" - if you got something like "command not found"

you have 2 options:

1) Change the path in your Batchfile to "C:/Program Files/YOUR_PATH_TO_SED/sed.exe"
or
2) Add SED to your path, so it is available everywhere. How to: http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000549.htm

after this, it should work correctly.

I've tried option two above without success (I still get "'sed' is not recognised" when I try via command line)
In Option #1 you say "Change the path.."
eh ... what path (please remember I'm no coder nor even a power(ful) user for that matter Wink )
[copy or print]
@echo off
set infile=%1%
sed -e "s/;/\[\/td\]\[td\]/g" "%infile%" > temp1.txt
sed -e "s/$/\[\/td\]\[\/tr]/g" temp1.txt > temp2.txt
sed -e "s/^/\[tr\]\[td\]/g" temp2.txt > temp1.txt
echo [table] > table.txt
type temp1.txt >> table.txt
echo [/table] >>  table.txt
del temp1.txt
del temp2.txt

I've restarted and double checked/tried everything again but no luck

The only thing that does happen is if I right click Convert.bat and click open, it then creates a table.txt file with just
[table][/table]
as content

EDIT/ I tried replacing %1% in the batch file with the sed.exe path but that didnt work either
FORGOT TO SAY:
Windows XP SP2 up-to-date

EDIT2/ the sed file I downloaded was sed-4.1.5-setup.exe (the "Complete package, except sources") from
http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/sed.htm

cant say about Amazon S3 (I use it but using Jungle Disk to back up my SFFS backups - not the most efficient but one advantage is it's easier for someone non-technical like me to check if it working properly)

Heard about GridMove a couple of days ago, and downloaded it yesterday.   I've been playing with it since then, and have to say that it is an incredibly useful little utility.  Spent most of the night learning how to make grids so I could get one that works exactly the way I wanted.   Here is what I came up with, in case anyone else is interested...

that looks impressive - thanks!

[EDIT] I see the post was removed?? LOL - I cant type at the bottom cause of the شكرا[/EDIT]

شكرا

from http://en.wiktionary.org/...588;كرا
Etymology:
Adverbial accusative of شكر (šukr), thankfulness, from the primitive root شكر (šákara), to thank, to be grateful. Compare Hebrew שכר.

now I wonder how you pronounce it smiley (like "šukr" probably, however that goes)
PS it's bizarre if you start typing in arabic (presumably cause it reads right to left) - keys start working in totally unexpected ways - try backspace, del, or return on this:
شكرا
5284  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Adding ALL CAPS to quick modification menu on: February 25, 2009, 05:54:19 PM
if you open up the CHS window, then click the "Modify Format/Case" button at top of the clip panel, that will bring you to the formatting dialog.  Then choose the UPPERCASE text formatting and nothing else, then save the preset with a useful name (From preset menu).  After that the new preset formatting operation will appear on your quick pop up menu under "Formatting Presets".

works a treat - would be logical to have this under options as well, thanks!

... the traditional trial model just doesn't work IMO.
is it whachamacallit undecided (not the full shilling so to speak) limited in some way ?


can anyone tell me what average user would double-clip their clippings so that they have one clipping on a fallback software they regularly use and one on Surfulator just to test how well it works for them?
?
I may know the answer but cant figure out the question ..(mind you I dont have the most recent version..)

IndieVolume seems to do this

mattski,
I, on the other hand, like you(!) sometimes dont read posts so closely Wink (tough being imperfect isnt it cheesy)

I see IndieVolume gets (relatively) poor reviews up to September of last year in the discount thread here (I think only supporting members can access those threads) but I havent heard of anything else

5288  Special User Sections / DC Website Help and Extras / Re: Fundraiser discussion.. again.. need help with ideas on: February 24, 2009, 03:31:28 PM
How about Fundraiser USB drivers?

Not a bad idea - but should definitely be done as prizes! As stated above, I think that whatever ideas we come up with/agree to should have a truly minimal impact on DC's accounts!

on the other hand it might be a good idea to have a "product line" that you could offer for sale year round
e.g.

tshirts ? (I know you have those expensive hoodies as prizes but you could produce a more basic line for the plebs) cause you could sell it year round it's not particularly "fundraiser-drive" material but worth thinking about, especially with such a good designer/illustrator as nudone on board!  (do you have a link again to those hoodies?)

Posters too ? (I'd like one Wink)

a just in case post:-
do you know you can use dcupdater and then update via menu/about ?
if not, search the thread: the setup details are in there somewhere Wink
5293  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What's your mouse of choice? on: February 22, 2009, 06:10:23 AM
That's very different than what I have.

Mine never click-clicks. It can't click-click. It has no detents to do that click-clicking with.

There is no 2 modes. There is only no click-click.
Hmm...ok.  Then I need to make a correction.  There is no physical click-click, but the mouse will behave like a normal clicky mouse when it is in that mode.  So the two modes are controlled entirely by the software, and physically the wheel is always in free-spin mode.

App isnt using a logitech mouse lol (i.e. she's saying how the make/model she has is different)

PS hi to bgd77's favorite mouse smiley

just heading off to bed here - but can anyone explain #1 (or the significance of it) in one sentence or so (!) (or maybe it's completely over my head anyways ?)

as usual, thanks Ethyar Thmbsup
5295  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What's your mouse of choice? on: February 21, 2009, 10:08:43 AM
Er... what's a free-wheel?

When you scroll the wheel on your mouse, most have little "bumps" that "click" as you scroll.

Free-wheel (I prefer the term smooth-wheel) doesn't have that. It's smooth, quiet, and you have greater control. But it's one of those things that you either love or hate, and if you love it, it's hard to find a mouse with it.

sounds nice
if you spin it does it keep going - is there that little resistance?

Razer Lachesis though truth be told I prefer trackballs , however getting a full featured multibutton left handed/ambidextrous track is almost impossible. nowadays

trying to get left handed anything (mouse-wise) seems pretty challenging to me Sad
thanks for that Razer tip

I am back with another one that's off the beaten path...
wow, he's good.
I really liked his Not Dark Yet which seems to have been written by someone else on youtube [here]
Does some nice original stuff too

I especially enjoyed this one - Trace Bundy & Sungha Jung - somehow I found the interaction very moving as well
