The message "Status report: Dropbox sync is active and idle." should mean that everything is working.
Try making a change to something (edit an item or just click now on one), and then click the sync now iten from menu.  See what it says. See if a file appears in your dropbox then.

Ok, when you see Playstore Beta release of version 1.49, give that one a try and see if it helps.
If you get a crash, please submit report to play store -- it really helps.

Dropbox says the app still isn't approved for public so that may be the problem -- but it shouldnt be crashing so i need those reports to help track down the issue.

I don't see any crash reports -- if you have the option to let it report the crashes please do, and generate some more of them -- it will help me figure out what's going on.

Never mind, i see the crash report, and it tells me what went wrong.  Looks like a dropbox related error.  Let me try to fix and upload a new version.

81  Other Software / DC Gamer Club / Sniper Elite 3 is 70% off on steam this weekend on: February 05, 2015, 01:53:59 PM
Sniper Elite 3 is a no frills game built on a last generation engine, and it's wonderful.
It's on sale this weekend for 70% off.

Steam page here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/238090/

DC member skwire and I have been playing through the co-op campaign, as we did with Sniper Elite 2, and it's a unique experience: slow, methodical, tense, fun as hell.

Highly recommended, especially if you have a friend to play co-op with.

Nice reviews here:

Looks like I need to apply to dropbox for permission to allow others to use it; I have now applied -- hopefully it will be approved quickly.

Beta version is up with sync-support.

Ok so, the way the quick search filter works is it filters over all clips you would normally see -- that is, all clips in the current group AND ALL OF ITS CHILDREN.
What it searches depends on what group you have SELECTED.

So put the new group someplace where you dont normally want to search, and not as a child of someplace you normally search.

what the heck happened..
first things first, go to your database directory and back it up someplace safe, along with your backups of your database files.

assuming you can run the app and get to the option, use the REPAIR database function.

if not, email me and let's see if we can figure out how to solve this and figure out what happened to cause it (mouser@donationcoder.com).

The dropbox sync stuff is working pretty darn well.. And when it's working well it's quite wonderful to watch.  Run the app on multiple devices at once and watch as one change migrates to the other device(s) within seconds..
And the process of actually enabling the sync option from the program, assuming you have a dropbox account, seems quite painless.

I'm still working out some of the kinks and the rough edges, but I'd say this should work quite nicely.

Preliminary sync support is now working (!)

I will (soon) be supporting a more user friendly option for syncing using dropbox api, but right now the method employed requires that you have some 3rd party tool that will sync directories on multiple devices.  For example the free Dropsync tool will let you keep a folder on your device sync'd with a dropbox folder, and that's what you need.

Note that this is NOT the same as just using a folder sync tool to synchronizing the main whenlast data file -- that could result in data loss and overwriting changes.  The sync procedure now in place is smart enough to keep the most recent changes on any device.  You could even use the app simultaneously on multiple devices without any problem.

I will upload new version to BETA testing soon.

I'm looking at dropbox sync api and adding support for automatic sync'ing across apps.

Also, MR did not seem anything "fast" to me, not faster than Paragon or EaseUS anyway, and at least for Paragon, I can say it's perfectly stable (I once lost data with their partition tool, but that was my fault, triggered by quite awful, quite ambiguous visuals in the respective Paragon program: So today I use Paragon for backup and EaseUS for partitioning).

It's hard for normal users to compare these kinds of products because we don't use them often enough to compare (I can say that in the past I used Acronis True Image, which is now a bloated beast that I would avoid).

Easus and Paragon both make great hard disk tools, and I cannot say Macrium is any better than those in any respect.  All I can say is that Macrium free version seems to work well, is reasonably fast, does not attempt to install other junk, doesn't have annoying nags, seems to be lightweight and stay out of the way when not being used.  And it also seems to be updated frequently (which may partly be a reflection of their success in the commercial marketplace).

Thanks for testing -- it sounds like it's working as designed.  thumbs up

All worked well, except that I now had two entries for each item--one that said Never for each (since I installed WhenLast on my phone a day or so ago and added the entries I wanted but didn't put any dates in), and one that contained the correct imported information for each entry.  I was able to delete the entries that had no dates, so all is now well, but I'm wondering whether the duplication will happen again the next time I import.


that troubles me.. im trying to think what scenario would cause that.  there are some cases where it could have happened if you created them independently on both devices..

please try exporting and importing back and forth a couple more times and make sure the duplicates are not being created any longer. and let me know.

found I could write in a date, but it wouldn't be visible on the main screen.
New version uploaded which makes it much easier to add custom dates for items.  Just edit an item and you'll see a new button for adding a custom date.  As long as the topmost date in history is in proper format, it will be interpreted as the last performed date.

Beta version now deletes all items in a category when you delete a category.

sifu, try this: Find the help file in windows explorer and right-click and show properties dialog for the file, then choose "Unblock" button.

1) Is there a way to delete all your examples at once, rather than having to delete them one by one?  My categories were sufficiently different from yours that I preferred to start from scratch.  I first tried to delete the categories, hoping that that would also zap the items inside them.  That didn't work.

I can understand the confusion+frustration.  Right now WhenLast will recreate a category even after you delete it, if there are any items with that tag.  I will be changing this behavior so that if you try to delete a category with items in it, you will be told how many items are solely in that category, and then your choice will be to delete the category AND all items in it, or cancel your attempted delete.

Quote
2) Is there a way to manually enter a date when something was done and have that date be visible until the next time?  For example, if I made an image backup on December 21, 2014 (before I had WhenLast) and not since then, I'd like to be able to have WhenLast show the December 21, 2014 date.  I found I could write in a date, but it wouldn't be visible on the main screen.

you can do this, though it's a bit uncomfortable.  do this: Click the NOW button for the item so that the current date is entered.  Now edit that item, and in the date history area, go change the date to the date of your choice, keeping the same basic date format.

in a future version i will make it so you can edit the date in a more friendly fashion.

3) Is there a way to synchronize WhenLast on two (or more) devices?

you can EXPORT your data file onto an sdcard or dropbox, etc., and then IMPORT it on the other machine.  WhenLast smartly merges changes so you can export and import back and forth and preserve recent changes.

Another programming game I stumbled on seems much more focused on hard core or at least more efficiency-minded coders, but is very cool:

 I think I know this problem, can you download the dll on this thread:
 http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=18066.0
 
 And copy it over the existing one (should be in something like C:\Program Files x86\Mobysaurus).
 
 Let me know if that works.
