That reminds me of being stuck in a doctor's office with a loud tv set; it's possibly justifiable when there are others present, but not when I'm the only one in the waiting room.  At times like that, I find myself wishing I had a universal tv remote control hidden in my shoulder bag.

google for TV-B-gone...

right now it cuts by nnn characters
is it possible to make it cut back TO nnn characters instead?

should be possible, though there is a likelyhood that you'll end up with nonsense filenames.  And what do we do where the path is the offending portion of the string (eg path lengths of 175+ characters)?

is it possible to make this as a plug-in for Directory Opus (or work as a toolbar button)

I don't use dopus so I can't help with this, but plenty here do so someone else may be able to advise

Quote
is it possible to add this to shell:sendto context menu.
meaning:
I would select a number of files, then select context menu "Maim The File" - and 'send' the files to Main The File so they are then cut back as per settings saved in Maim The File.

possibly... it could certainly be added to the context menu, but what you're asking for is more of a batch operation which is something I'll have to look into...

(Maim - what does this stand for?)

to maim is to injure such that a permanent disfigurement results.  It was a play on words given the potential for damage when renaming files

Or in case of Photoshop, should that not .giffed children?

DOH!!  I feel like I've just been png'ed huh

That's funny. But could be considered a photoshop fail. Look at the book's spine. (c:

ahhh, but is that proof of a photoshop fail, or that the method doesn't work?

curious to know how many files we're talking here as well (10, 100, 1000?)
106  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Windows desktop productivity tool on: April 13, 2014, 10:15:35 PM
but at least we've ruled a couple of things out Thmbsup

can we assume that you want something like the fences functionality, ie separating and confining the folder icons to a certain area of the desktop?
107  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Windows desktop productivity tool on: April 13, 2014, 07:53:24 PM
what about soemthing like fences?

2 different versions that I know of

Stardock Fences, or

Tago Fences
108  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Working with excel row and columns on: April 07, 2014, 09:25:44 PM
it's not exactly transposing (that was my first thought)

and the transpose formula is built in to both excel and libreoffice (no need for an addin)

FWIW here's a bit of VBA I found on the web that does what you want, though the output is to a delimited string (pretty sure you can work it out from there)

[copy or print]
Function MYVLOOKUP(lookupval, lookuprange As Range, indexcol As Long)
Dim r As Range
Dim result As String
result = ""
For Each r In lookuprange
    If r = lookupval Then
        result = result & "," & r.Offset(0, indexcol - 1)
    End If
Next r
MYVLOOKUP = Right(result, Len(result) - 1)
End Function

paste it into your (excel) personal macro workbook, then call it as a user defined function from the FX dialog box (syntax is the same as a normal VLOOKUP)

110  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Nice blog post on the parasitic software hosting sites bundling junkware on: April 01, 2014, 03:16:12 PM
and there's nothing to say that they have to wrap/bundle the original install anyway.  Their 'installer' could just be a middleware (cr)app that calls the original installer from the parent site

I'm a bit surprised this one hasn't gotten a guernsey yet - Thinkertoys by Michael Michalko

IMHO it's a good read and a great resource

this might strike a chord with a some here...

at the risk of poking the snake with a stick, still seems like guilt by association to me.

as far as I can see all you've managed to do so far is paint TED black with someone elses deeds.

I'm not defending any of the parties here, I'm pretty sure we all know that many of the big commercial entities are far from paragons, but I've yet to hear anything that indicates that TED does anything other than provide a forum.

Is there an agenda there?  I have no idea, and given the breadth and depth of both subjects and presenters I'm guessing it would pretty hard to see anyway.

meh...

For those interested in the Arduino, Little Bird Electronics have a Kickstarter project up.

are you going to back it?
117  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Against TED talks on: March 18, 2014, 05:20:58 PM
so TED does something other than facilitate public forums on random topics?

then there's a certain irony in the latest (?) presentation

Quote
Daniel Reisel studies the brains of criminal psychopaths (and mice). And he asks a big question: Instead of warehousing these criminals, shouldn’t we be using what we know about the brain to help them rehabilitate? Put another way: If the brain can grow new neural pathways after an injury … could we help the brain re-grow morality?

if it's not a folder you use often (and it's not a system folder of some sort) then a password protected archive (ZIP, 7Z, etc) would do the trick, ie move the folder into the archive and only extract it when you need it (updating the archive as needed of course)
119  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Against TED talks on: March 18, 2014, 03:22:18 PM
so all this boils down to guilt by association?

TED is guilty because some of it's sponsors have questionable ethics or morals

Speakers (who are in fact guests) are guilty because they participate in a forum?

seems like it mightn't bode well for any of us undecided

if you don't want the overhead of a(nother) addin here's a bit of vba code that will do the same thing

[copy or print]
Sub addlinks()
Dim rowno As Integer, i As Integer
rowno = 2

Worksheets.Add before:=Sheets(1)

For i = 2 To Worksheets.Count
    Sheets(1).Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=ActiveSheet.Cells(rowno, 2), Address:="", SubAddress:="'" & Sheets(i).Name & "'!A1", TextToDisplay:=Sheets(i).Name
    rowno = rowno + 1
Next i

End Sub

FWIW that wasn't necessarily a recommendation.  I've used both those browsers but far to briefly to make any sort of comment

be interested to see how it goes for you though  Thmbsup

125  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Any Internet browser that for sure will browse? on: March 03, 2014, 06:12:59 PM
what about avant or lunascape?

they apparently incorporate multiple engines...
