I re-read my post and I didn't mean to imply the zero didn't work in epCheck

No worries.   smiley

Hi, Postal, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.   smiley

Would it be possible to show the temperature overlaid on the main tray icon?

Without a huge amount of code refactoring, no, this isn't possible.  Apologies.   embarassed

Ditto.  I agree most of the problems I experienced were TheTVDB related.  Very smooth now.

Good to hear.  Thanks for the report.

I'd like to disable the "Refresh data every...days"  Can I set that to zero

You can now.   cheesy  Grab the latest beta build (#166, I think) and set that option to zero.

There was a time in my life where computers, automation, programming, etc. was considered uber-nerd activity, wouldn't get any girls, the opposite of jocks.

I was quite the freak in school, it seems:

  • Leader of the computer club (Pascal, FTW) (nerd)
  • High-ranking member of the Air Force JROTC squadron (nerd-ish)
  • Captain of back-to-back state championship hockey teams (jock).

Still programming...and still playing hockey...at age 41.  Love it.   Grin  (Air Force career didn't work out...was denied entry due to migraines.  Angry)

isn't there any reasearch how much of our life we spend on commuting, showering, preparing food, laundring, cleaning?

I'm sure there is loads of research about that stuff but I couldn't care less about it.

Regarding most of the items in your list, there are already "automated" options.  Commuting?  Take public transportation if you don't like driving or find a job that allows you to telecommute.  Preparing food?  Some folks love to cook.  If you don't, I'm sure there are plenty of restaurants around you that would be happy to take your money and provide you a meal.  Or, hire an in-house chef.  Laundry?  Same, take your stuff to the cleaners and have them do it for you.  Cleaning?  Hire a cleaning service.  Of course, all this stuff will cost you money but if you think that it wouldn't just because you want it "automated," you're being very na├»ve.  Don't kid yourself.  Everything costs something somewhere.

At any rate, if you automate all aspects of your life, what do you have left?  Not much.  That's what.  And, if you say something like, "Just automate the mundane things in life so you have more time for the fun things," I would tell you that that just goes hand-in-hand with the "immediate gratification" paradigm that we see more and more in the world (especially with the younger generation).  It's not healthy, in my opinion.  I'd rather feel like I've earned my so-called fun time by taking care of the mundane things that need to be taken care of.  That's called delayed gratification and I find that a much healthier paradigm (especially for children).  My wife and I aren't afraid to tell our daughters no and make them earn their fun time via chores, getting homework done first, etc.  This is the essence of delayed gratification and I fully expect the same of myself, too.

Thanks for the report; I'll see if I can fix this.  In the meantime, you can use the old-school hotkeys:

Cut: Shift+Delete

I had trouble finding a program that will do this, but I was told that such program to work, it needs to "inject code into explorer, and manipulate it using hooks, and/or access internal memory directly".

can you tell me please how to do it exactly?

Externally manipulating a browser, say, with AHK or other macro program, is a notoriously difficult thing to do.  To do the type of manipulation you're asking about, in a browser, you will have to accomplish it via internal methods.  That is, you will almost certainly have to write a plugin/extension/add-on for each browser you want supported.  This would be MUCH easier than your statement of, "inject code into explorer, and manipulate it using hooks, and/or access internal memory directly."  I don't know that we have many browser plugin coders on DC, so you're probably on your own for this one.  I'd start by researching how to write a plugin for whichever browser you use.

If you're just looking to save time closing tabs, I'd suggest you look into using mouse gestures with your browser of choice (this assumes that you're not currently using mouse gestures, of course).  For instance, to close a tab in Firefox, I right-click and make an "L" shape.  Takes half a second and I still can maintain normal right-click functionality.

My mindset is the exact opposite of yours and I am willing to bet that your views are in the vast minority.  I think life would get pretty damn monotonous (not to mention invasive) if little things like personal hygiene were done for us on a scale you describe.  I rather enjoy taking a hot shower and don't see it as a wasteful inconvenience.

Jody, I've had no issues at all with 1.1.5.163.

Good to hear.  Thank you for the report.  I haven't heard any horror stories with the beta so I really ought to get off my duff and release it.

What if the space in the Monthly view could be toggled to show a single day's schedule for the next few weeks?  All the space would be available for viewing Sunday's shows for the entire month.  Then I could see at a glance if 'Revenge' was going to skip a Sunday.

Yes, I'm aware that the Monthly view text space is very tight with all those potential listviews.  That whole tab actually started as an experiment to see if I could manipulate that many listviews into an actual calendar without the code being (too) messy.  Ideally, for a calendar, one would probably use a control more suited to the task, i.e., not a listview.  Unfortunately, AutoHotkey doesn't have a better option that I'm aware of.  *shrug*

Of course, this can already be done in the Weekly view but one has to scroll down through all the days of the week to get to the desired next Sunday, etc.

I think the better option would be to just view the given series in the Series tab where you can view the airdates and easily see if a given week is skipped.

As an aside, it looks like the TheTVDB.com folks have completed a server move recently and everything seems much faster in epCheck in regards to searching for new series and updating current ones.  Woot.   cheesy
113  Special User Sections / N.A.N.Y. 2014 / Re: NANY 2014 Release - Spews on: January 25, 2015, 09:41:30 AM
So it seems that now it keeps a history of wallpapers. Is that history's length limited, and if so, how (a certain amount of memory, a maximum number of images paths and names, some other method)?

I suppose a bit of explanation is in order:

1) When you click the "Start wallpaper switching" button, Spews creates a list of images based on what you can configured and checked in the "Image folders" section.  The list then has any dupes removed and is randomised.  This method removes any chance that a wallpaper will be seen twice during a list's run.
3) Spews then uses this list, starting at the top and moving in order but remember the list is randomised every time you start the switching so the order is not the filepath image order.
4) Selecting the previous wallpaper goes back one image, at a time, in the list.  However, selecting next wallpaper ALWAYS goes to the next random wallpaper in the list.

For example, let's assume you have your list of wallpapers that Spews has randomised and is now switching through.  Image #3 is displayed on your desktop.  Selecting previous wallpaper would display iamge #2.  Selecting previous wallpaper again would display image #1.  Selecting next wallpaper (or having the next image display on your configured time interval) would display image #4.  At this point, selecting previous wallpaper would display #3, #2, and so on.  Maybe slightly illogical, yes, but I would have had to create a second "next wallpaper" function which seems a bit inelegant to me.

So, to answer your question, Spews doesn't use any more memory for this functionality (because it's using the same list).  Clear as mud, eh?   cheesy

Seems to be working almost perfectly - the temp initially loads as Fahrenheit but the changes to Celsius after pressing refresh.

Please verify the bus is fixed in this version:

Hi, schiznik, and welcome to DonationCoder.    smiley

I've set the web page to show temps in Celsius, however the app seems to only show Fahrenheit - I'd like to change the reported temperatures to Celsius if possible rather than Fahrenheit, I couldn't see a way of doing so in the app.

Almost three years to the day from the last release.   cheesy

v1.0.4 - 2015-01-22
    + Added option to use Celsius.  (Thanks, schiznik)

smiley Thanks a ton. I really appreciate it, the super-quick implementation and that you made both options available, the hotkey and the command line parameter.  Cool
This raises the Windows experience to a whole new level, everything is suddenly so much more fun, it even spices up tedious maintenance chores.

You're quite welcome.   smiley  I'm glad you find the application useful.   thumbs up

copy is broken here (with 'Action' selected). Doesnt work with Ctrl+C nor via context menu.
Didnt work in previous version either - I know it worked a short while back, but not sure which version (2 or 3 back?).

Odd, it seems to work here for me on v1.0.9.  Just to clarify, you're talking about manipulating entries in the Actions list, right?  Like this:

I hadn't even thought to look for something that wasn't a calendar, but I think that would probably work fine.
Thanks!

You're welcome and welcome to DonationCoder as well.  If PBoL is going to work for you, do you mind if I mark this thread as solved?
124  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: SOLVED: Visual Progressive Countdown Calendar on: January 20, 2015, 05:50:22 PM
Is the calendar portion crucial?  If not, perhaps mouser's own Progress Bars of Life might suit you?

Many thanks.  thumbs up Great piece of software.
I use it in combination with all my writing pograms, and it spices up their canvas nicely.
The -nosetwall parameter and the transparency slider are outstanding. Great stuff.  Thmbsup

You're very welcome.  I always find it interesting to learn how folks use different programs.   cheesy

My only wish left: An exception list, to exclude my browser and file manager from being affected.

Lucidity overlays a transparent image across your entire desktop.  That is, it does not apply the effect individually to each application window.
