From slashdot:

Quote
'We've always suspected that Google might tweak its search algorithms to gain an advantage over its rivals — and, according to an FTC investigation inadvertently shared with the Wall Street Journal, it did. Quoting: "In a lengthy investigation, staffers in the FTC's bureau of competition found evidence that Google boosted its own services for shopping, travel and local businesses by altering its ranking criteria and "scraping" content from other sites. It also deliberately demoted rivals. For example, the FTC staff noted that Google presented results from its flight-search tool ahead of other travel sites, even though Google offered fewer flight options. Google's shopping results were ranked above rival comparison-shopping engines, even though users didn't click on them at the same rate, the staff found. Many of the ways Google boosted its own results have not been previously disclosed.'

"WASHINGTON—Officials at the Federal Trade Commission concluded in 2012 that Google Inc. used anticompetitive tactics and abused its monopoly power in ways that harmed Internet users and rivals, a far harsher analysis of Google’s business than was previously known."

Very cool.

My AHK script "SelectoSurf" does almost exactly this.  You could easily modify the AHK script to launch your app instead of the default browser.

I suppose you're right that it would be a good idea to have some way to launch and tell FARR to keep searching.. i'll add it.

If none show icons, can you try going into the options to the Tweaks and Debugging tab, and make sure you don't have one of those 2 options checked that say to disable icons.
82  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Custom alias icon issue Win7 on: March 20, 2015, 04:37:22 PM
even in the beta, it's not showing custom icons on any aliases?!?

try this: type "cpanel"

all of those cpanel aliases use a custom specified icon.

do those all show up without displaying nice icons?

the mru plugin is much nicer all around, the main benefit of this being built into farr now is that these recent documents will always be searched quickly when you do a general search and get bonus scores -- so they will come up instantly and be highly ranked when you search for them -- rather than only appearing when you explicitly list them.

Thanks tom!
Yeah those exe files are coming from a registry key that is looking less and less useful unfortunately.. i'll probably change it to ignore those.

FARR MRU is an awesome plugin..  it will be interesting to hear how the results differ.
89  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Use FARR as Run Command? on: March 20, 2015, 07:15:28 AM
Type: historys
That will show you your most recent "searches" (or things you typed in like that run command).

Even quicker: hit ctrl+Up arrow and ctrl+Down arrow to scroll through them.  this is particularly usefull when you just want to rerun something you just did, since its just one Ctrl+Up and then hit enter.

Let me know if it works for you.

I guess probably the one interesting thing to try is typing: historyr
This will now show recent files saved/loaded from the Windows OS save/load dialog [as found in the system registry] and could be a nice way to find files when you can't remember the name of what you are looking for.
These files are also searched for as if they are cached, so they should come up in results quickly and with higher scores.
[note also the previous keywords: historys and historyl will show your last searches and launches, so this fits right in].

Now I changed the way shortcut icons are resolved -- this fixes an issue where shortcuts has custom icons that weren't being shown.. however it is not clear to me whether this will break anything, so please let me know if you notice that the new FARR is not showing icons correctly in some cases (especially for shortcut .lnk files).

I hope to update FARR more rapidly now that i have somewhat re-acquainted myself with the code..

I have released a new beta -- first in a long time.
Some bug fixes, some new features, and a couple of changes that MIGHT break things -- so let's see...

Version 2.217.01 - Mar 18, 2015
  • [Feature] FARR now understands how to search certain windows registry keys to find lists of recently saved documents and recently run applications; if configured in search folder paths it will search these lists quickly.  You can also view them explicitly by typing: "historyr".  See the "History" option tab for more information and options.
  • [Feature] You can now customize the fixed font used when memo display is showing fixed font output (such as when displaying result of console output, appcap output, etc.).
  • [Feature] You can now drop files onto the search edit box and it will append them to existing search comments.
  • [Feature] Alias results can now contain % environmental variables.
  • [BugFix] Reset to defaults option on custom font settings tab was not resetting all options.
  • [BugFix] Hint for "Use generic icons for folders" option was wrong.
  • [BugFix] Option for "Do not add network drive paths to lauch history (they can slow search)" under Settings/Search Behavior was not being saved.
  • [BugFix] Right-click menu items for custom alias entries with custom /ICON values were not triggering correctly.
  • [Change] Changed the way shortcut (.lnk) icons are resolved for display --  waiting for reports if this helps or hurts.
  • [MinorFeature] Added special search modifier +launchone that will launch the matching alias as soon as there is only one result in display.

cool  thumbs up
93  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: capture a map that needs to be scrolled on: March 19, 2015, 01:20:38 PM
You can use the "manual" scrolling capture mode to let you do the panning as Screenshot Captor takes different images.
Or if there are keyboard shortcuts that will do the panning in your target app, you could tell SC to "scroll" (pan) using keyboard keys.
94  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Screenshot Captor: A feature I would like added - precise region capture options on: March 19, 2015, 09:40:04 AM
Please try redownloading the latest beta.  Plain cursor keys now perform as before; hold shift or alt to adjust selection rectangle in dif ways.
95  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Screenshot Captor: A feature I would like added - precise region capture options on: March 19, 2015, 09:26:55 AM
To answer your question more directly -- the red box capture mode requires more steps but has handles for adjusting capture region during capture -- it was the original method of capturing a region.  The newer mode was designed to allow you to select a region much quicker by forgoing the use of drag handles and allowing the user to just very quickly click, drag, and release.
96  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Screenshot Captor: A feature I would like added - precise region capture options on: March 18, 2015, 11:21:17 PM
There is actually a Red Box Capture mode you can select in the options as an alternate way of selecting a region to capture -- that has handles.  Give it a try.
97  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Screenshot Captor: A feature I would like added - precise region capture options on: March 18, 2015, 07:06:02 PM
not a bad idea.. right click to drag, i'll give that a try.
98  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Screenshot Captor: A feature I would like added - precise region capture options on: March 18, 2015, 05:11:29 PM
yes, i think i am pretty much convinced to go back to having plain cursor keys move cursor endpoint.

but please note, the ONLY different between old and new beta is that with the new beta you use SHIFT plus cursor keys to move the endpoint position.

but again, i think i will change it so that you use normal cursor keys as before, and SHIFT+cursor keys will move the entire selection rectangle without changing its size.
99  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Screenshot Captor: A feature I would like added - precise region capture options on: March 18, 2015, 04:31:17 PM
I understand what you are saying completely -- and i am still unsure whether to change behavior to make it work like it used to.

Let me explain what i changed, how to do what you used to do, and ask people what they prefer.

The only change with the new version to do what you want is step 5 -- you now have to hold SHIFT to nudge the end point position.
The reason for that is that now moving the plain cursor keys will move the entire rectangle.

I could of course swap that, and make plain cursor keys always nudge the current cursor location -- as it worked before.  in some ways that seems clearer.  The only reason i did it like i did is that it more closely mirrors what happens WITHIN Screenshot Captor when using cursor keys to adjust the current selected region.

Thoughts?

Truly one of our most mysterious, fantastical, and treasured members.  Some people don't even believe you are human!  And here we even got a peak into the life of a skrommel -- love it!  Perhaps you will consider posting one day a photo of the skrommel gang/family?

As for your accumulated DonationCredits -- they are yours and you deserve every cent, and you should withdraw them and use them to buy some nice vacation for you and the family -- and I know it would make all of your fans happy to know you were enjoying something because of their donations.  Message me and we can figure out a good way to send you the donations that maybe avoids a large paypal fee -- and you might need to wait until the end of the upcoming fundraiser for the funds.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TAKING THE TIME TO POST!!!!! SKROMMEL  Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss
