Twitter recently shut down their old v1 API, which this plugin used. That's why it wont work.

Ah-ha! And now we know. That's a shame. I hope something comes along so we can use FARR to tweet. smiley

I don't mean to "bump" this, but I'm back to the very same place I was when I first tried installing it last year.
3  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / FARR Twitter Plugin on: June 13, 2013, 07:05:57 AM
I had it once so I could post tweet directly from FARR, but the plugin is now missing. Where can I download it and also get instruction on getting things running?

Edit: I've found it but I must have done something wrong, as when I type "tw This is an update!" and hit enter, it doesn't show up on Twitter at all! This used to work! Any help is greatly appreciated!

OP here. Just wanted everyone to know my problem has been solved by a very kind and generous person. It's a reminder that the world isn't always such a sh*tty place. smiley

Well, most of my apps I have "assigned" to a specific monitor. When I install a new app, it takes me some time before I can decide which monitor it belongs to. Two things: all video is on the left. Web browser or anything I'm reading goes on the riight.

Not sure what you meant by "all other movements are effectively random".

so apart from a few apps that 'must' be on a given monitor, all other movements are effectively random?

Well, I don't work; I'm disabled. But I love to work on my computer, which has two monitors. I play games, check out Facebook and StumbleUpon, but I don't just do that sort of thing. I like to tinker, for lack of a better word, on my machine. So there's no real "workflow". I'm just very particular to how things are on my monitors. Two big things are high on my list. One is which monitor should an app appear, and of course some have to be tossed back and forth. The other is ensuring the app is centered on the monitor. There are a few I place elsewhere, but most are centered. So, in a nutshell, my workflow is OCD. smiley

out of curiosity, what's your workflow here?

just wondering how and why you move windows now (ie is there a 'rule set')

I agree about the portableapps wrapper. I downloaded it from the link you provided. I may test it out a bit later. I'm having sort of a bad night. I'll report back on how it goes.

Thanks all!

RBTray at portableapps.com will handle minimize to tray (freeware). Pretty lightweight, portable and no UI to speak of.
Why is the portableapps wrapper needed?

RBTray is available at http://sourceforge.net/pr.../rbtray/files/rbtray/4.3/

32-bit/64-bit versions included in the ZIP package.

Well:
I had DisplayFusion, but it was version 3, and well, let's say it wasn't exactly a legit copy. It kept annoying me with pop-ups. And being on
disability I can't just throw down $25 for the cheapest paid version. I don't want the free version, as it leaves out a lot of features I want
and/or need.

As far as WILMA is concerned, I'll have to read more, or rather, again, as my brain hasn't recovered from my sleeping medication from last
night. smiley

And while Actual Window Manager has the allure of scads of options, RBTray may be a good option, too, for its simplicity.

I'll take some time and report back. I've still got AWM installed so I'll fiddle with that too.

You could try out Actual Window Manager or Actual Multiple Monitors at www.actualtools.com

I've sort of tried Actual Window Manager, but I was overwhelmed by the tabs and tabs of options. The other recommendations in this post just don't fill the bill, so when I'm more human I will investigate AWM.
10  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Seeking Little App w/Specific Actions on: March 13, 2013, 05:11:01 AM
Hello all:
I'm looking for a neat little app to sit in my tray that will allow me to move a window from monitor to monitor, and also to minimize a window to the system tray.

Already UltraMon moves my windows from monitor to monitor via hotkeys. To minimize a window/app to the tray I use DM2 (https://sourceforge.net/projects/dm2/), and lately been crashing for no reason (I've seen on SourceForge that I'm not the only one with that issue).

So does anyone know of an app that does at least those two little things? Other tweaky options are nice and all, but those two are my essentials! BTW I tried Actual Windows Manager, and it's a nightmare of options. I think it may be too much for me.
11  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Twitter Plugin Issue on: September 14, 2012, 09:22:10 AM
Hello all:
I can't seem to get the Twitter FARR plugin to work, but it used to. I downloaded and installed the latest plugin. Firstly, in the User Variables of FARR I've entered my username and password (both verified), but there isn't anything about "posttweet" as shown in the pic you show here on DC. Also, the Twitter plugin isn't showing up in the Plugins & Updates section of FARR. Can you help me out? Detailed instructions would be helpful as I sometimes have difficulty with the technicalities of FARR.

Thanks so much!

JBS seems like a good app for the job. Still messing with options and trying to get it to do just what I want.

Any other recommendations?
13  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / (Free) Wallpaper Manager? Dual Screen! on: August 01, 2012, 11:09:12 AM
Hello all:
I'm wondering if anyone knows of a good (free) wallpaper manager that supports dual monitors. Currently I use UltraMon for my wallpaper needs, but it's kind of clunky. I'd like something that not only supports dual monitors, but may also offer timed/auto wallpaper changing. It would also be nice if it also had the option to mirror wallpapers made for single monitors. If free is not an option, then maybe something I can find on PirateBay (is that a no-no?). smiley

Kind Regards,
Daniel Headrick

14  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Pearltrees Wiki/Manual, etc. on: March 17, 2012, 01:24:36 PM
Hello all:
I've been looking all over the web and can't find anything in the line of a manual or wiki for Pearltrees (this link should take me to my profile, otherwise just go to pearltrees.com). There's a few symbols and color coding that I can't quite decipher, and hell, I just love manuals and wikis. Can anyone help me out? I'm getting a little frustrated. Sad

BTW, It's been so long since I've been on here. I promise to get more involved this year!

Kind Regards,
Daniel Headrick
15  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Updating FARR: Will it mess up my aliases? on: March 13, 2012, 05:09:21 AM
Simple question: If I install the newest version of FARR over my current one, will my aliases be lost, or otherwise damaged in any way?
16  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / FARR Twitter Alias on: March 13, 2012, 03:29:57 AM
How on Earth do I configure the Twitter alias? I want to just type "tw" followed by a space, then my tweet. It used to work, but for some reason doesn't now. Do I need to edit it and somehow add my username and password, and where do I do that in the string. I'm a bit lost. Any help is very much appreciated!

This is the string in question:
Direct Message (user): $$1 (message): $$2 | %ALIASDIR%\curl.exe -u %uservar.TwitterPlugin.username%:%uservar.TwitterPlugin.password% -d user="$$h1" -d text="$$h2" http://twitter.com/direct_messages/new.xml /ICON=icons\Twitter.ico /WINHID

How do I modify it so that it works again? I could really use your help in this one! Unless you guys know of a better Twitter FARR alias?

Love it. Great idea! I like being able to mix up two different wallpapers.

20  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: lap top cooling pad on: August 14, 2010, 06:32:22 AM
I've always been skeptical about these pads, so not long after I purchased my laptop I picked up a Targus laptop stand. It's just a little four-armed adjustable stand that raises the laptop a little over an inch in the rear, slanting downward toward the front. I've never had any heat issues, and I've had this laptop for nearly six years.
21  DonationCoder.com Software / FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: Looking for 'new email' using Thunderbird on: July 19, 2010, 07:06:05 PM
A start:

right click on your desktop or in a folder and select New and then select Shortcut.

Where the wizard asks for "location of the item" type in "Mailto:"  without the quotes but with the colon.

At the next prompt type in a name (eg NewMail).  When you doubleclick the shortcut, it should open up a new email for editing, using your default mail client.

At least that's how it works for me, using XP SP3 with Outlook Express.

Thank you, AndyM, but I'm looking for a FARR alias, not a shortcut.
22  DonationCoder.com Software / FARR Plugins and Aliases / Looking for 'new email' using Thunderbird on: July 19, 2010, 06:17:50 PM
Hello all:
I'm looking for a simple alias that would open a new email via Thunderbird.

If anyone wants to whip up one, I would like to just type in 'new' (without the quotes) and upon hitting enter, open a fresh email in Thunderbird. Keep in mind that I don't use the default path for it. I use 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Thunderbird\thunderbird.exe'. Also, it would be snazzy if I entered 'new username@email.com' (username@email.com being someone's email addy) that it would open a fresh email already addressed to said email address.

Really, I'd be happy to do this myself if I knew how! If such an alias already exists, do let me know. I've been searching on here, but haven't really found anything.

Any help, suggestions, etc, would be much appreciated!

Firstly, Firefox is set as my default. Second, nope, no second instance crops up.
