Thank you very much for the new features!

P.S. I have updated the screenshot for the TPFC entry, hope you're OK with it (animated .gif with 4 frames and 5 seconds delay).

No problem at all.   cheesy. Thanks for taking care of that.

Since I haven't heard of any problems with these interim builds, I'm going to go ahead and promote it to a release.

Website | Download
v1.1.1 - 2014-02-04
    + Added a simple tracking ability to epCheck.  You can now set the
      watched/unwatched state using the checkboxes for each episode.
    + Added a "Show special episodes" option to control whether or not a
      series' special episodes are listed.  (Thanks, lanux128)
    + Added an option to give some control over how many banner images are
      downloaded for a series.  (Thanks, nickodemos)
    + Colours now apply to the Series tab episode list.
    * Broke out the search functionality to its own tab.
    ! Worked around an issue where the episode list would sometimes be
      loaded twice.

To be honest, I didn't think much of your effort in 2007!

So....funny story about the 2007 mugs.  Start here and read a few posts past:  http://www.donationcoder....15715.msg145103#msg145103

Noticed that the save to CSV only does one series at a time. If we could highlight what we liked one could select all and then search a CSV file.

You know...all the data you want is in the XML files in the data folder.  You could write a script or a parser to search through those.
131  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2014 / Re: NANY 2014 Release - epCheck on: February 02, 2014, 04:17:19 PM
I really appreciate your enthusiasm for epCheck so I hope you're not too disappointed when I tell that most of your requests are somewhat out of scope for what I intended for epCheck.  I'll go through your requests...

Is there a way to add either a second tab for series or maybe have it so that if you right click on the series tab it will switch from "current/ongoing" to a "canceled/catch when I can" tab.

I have been rolling around in my head a sort of "profiles" type of functionality where you could save/load specific lists of shows.  In other words, you could make several lists to cover your needs: watching, watched, cancelled, etc.  I wasn't thinking additional tabs...more like a drop-down where you could select which profile to view.  No ETA at this time, though.

Another thought. If people keep using your program to keep track of shows new and canceled it might be nice to have a search functions on the story line.

I really doubt I'll ever add something like this. IMO, this is way out of scope for epCheck.

Another edit. Just was looking and thgought about  maybe having the # and episode column set to a default minimum so as to be able to always have that information visible. Seen that many times when # hits three digits things get covered.

Since the widths of the listviews are automatically saved, just resize the column as you need.

The latest interim build is here and adds colouring to the main episode list: http://skwire.dcmembers.com/apps/epcheck/epCheck_v1.1.0.42.zip

v1.0.4 - 2014-02-02
    * Made it so the 0.ico and 1.ico icons are not overwritten when the
      program starts.  This allows you, if you so desire, to swap out those
      two icons with your own.  (Thanks, Mike)

No, that's not the purpose of this application.

Hi, traingreg, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.   smiley  Apologies for missing your post.   embarassed

The Proxy Switching seems to work well! I did have one question, however, when there are multiple users (with multiple logins) using the computer is there any way to install it so it will work for ever user. Right now it seems like I have to install it for each person.

I suppose you could write a script or something like that.  However, the application doesn't have any sort of built-in ability to install itself for all users.

v1.0.3 - 2014-02-01
    + Added the ability to set a proxy state check interval.  This allows
      the IE Proxy Toggle to update its icon if the proxy state is changed
      by an external source.  You can find this new option in the tray menu.
      (Thanks, J. Quonce)

You can do what you want with a simple batch (.bat) file.

@J-Mac: Will you please try this latest interim build and see if that resizing bug has been alleviated at all?  Thanks.

http://skwire.dcmembers.com/apps/epcheck/epCheck_v1.1.0.37.zip

If you change the setting for 'The' to be at the end it will not update the ones you had added before.

Not a bug.  You can rename a highlighted series by slow-clicking it twice or by pressing F2.
139  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: Release: sStockQuote on: January 31, 2014, 04:23:03 PM
This is awesome.  But don't let bloomberg hear about this!

Thanks much, superboy.  Based on how little sStockQuote actually does in terms of stocks and portfolio stuff, I'm rather surprised by the amount of positive feedback that it gets.  I mean, is there really a derth of apps that do what sStockQuote does?  I'd like to think there are many, much more capable stock apps out there.  Again, I know jack squat about stocks and the stock market so it's an honest question.
140  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: Release: sStockQuote on: January 31, 2014, 03:42:22 PM
Hi mthadley, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.   smiley

Would be terrific if the Market Capitalization column (extended tab) took into account M (million) vs B (billion) when sorting

I've tried all the sort options available to me and, not suprisingly, none of them will sort that way.

Would also be helpful to show currency (for stocks on non-US markets)

As I mentioned before, I know very little about the stock market so I'm not quite sure what you're asking for.  sStockQuote gets its data using the method found here: http://www.gummy-stuff.org/Yahoo-data.htm.  If you can correlate the data bits you want with the codes in that table, let me know, and I'll see what I can do.
141  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2014 / Re: NANY 2014 Release - epCheck on: January 31, 2014, 09:00:58 AM
I'm using it with no issues so far.   smiley

Thanks for the feedback.   Thmbsup

I noticed that on a few occasions that it would take a long time to launch. I am assuming that it is gathering information at this time from the web and updating information about the shows.

Actually, it only runs that routine after the GUI is shown so I'm not sure what is causing the slow startup.   huh

sImgurUploader only works with an anonymous API account so I'd choose the "Anonymous usage without user authorization" option (and leave the second part blank).

Great program! I just downloaded it tonight and tried it out. What little I entered so far is looking pretty good!   cheesy

Thanks, this has been a fun one to code.

One issue I encountered: Gotta be real careful when resizing the window.

I have seen/experienced this occsionally as well and I think the problem is contained in one of the various libraries I use to extend the capabilities of AutoHotkey.  Unfortunately, I've not been able to fully pin down why it does this.   Sad

I want to delete all the lines that begins with "dermatitis" without quotes.
But the effect is that all the lines are deleted.....

Follow lanux128's steps but check the "Regular Expressions" box and use this as a search string: ^dermatitis

v1.0.8 - 2014-01-07

Here is the latest interim build: http://skwire.dcmembers.com/apps/epcheck/epCheck_v1.1.0.24.zip

This moves the watched state data to its own watched.ini file in the data folder.  It should move any current watched data from the config.ini to the new watched.ini but if for some reason it doesn't, I apologise.   ohmy
148  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2014 / Re: NANY 2014 Release - epCheck on: January 26, 2014, 07:37:36 PM
I just seen that what is watched is in the config.ini. My idea still stands on reverse recording and it can stay in the config.ini.

Thank you for your idea.  However, I'm not going to do this because:
  • Your reverse way would involve having to compare the current list with any potential new additions every time a series is refreshed.  Programmatically, I find it much easier to simply keep track of watched episode IDs.  Sure, the list will grow over time but...
  • ...even with over a hundred TV shows and all episodes watched, the size of the text file is going to be inconsequential.  I tested this with 118 series and all episodes marked watched.  The resulting watched.ini file was only 158 KB.  That was with Doctor Who (700+ eps) and Cops (~900 eps).
  • In regards to a performance hit, again, I think it's going to be extremely minimal.  Most any (semi) modern computer can parse through thousands of lines in a text file in fraction of a second.
149  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Delete lines starting with a string in a txt file predefined on: January 26, 2014, 12:46:19 PM
Contro, you really ought to try Text Monkey Pro.  It's not free ($30) but it can do all sorts of things to text files including the thing you mention in this post and many that you've mentioned in the past.

http://www.boxersoftware.com/tmfeat.htm

In the "Line Operations" section, there is a "Delete lines that contain user-specified text" option that should cover your need expressed in this thread.
150  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2014 / Re: NANY 2014 Release - epCheck on: January 26, 2014, 10:01:00 AM
One request though. Possible to have in the options the ability to download only one image file? I, and others might be as well, am pretty simple when it comes to the image. I am fine with what ever one downloads, just that I went through and deleted all but one image per folder and it reduced the data folder by 90 percent.

I added your request in the latest interim build: http://skwire.dcmembers.com/apps/epcheck/epCheck_v1.1.0.22.zip

Also, I'm thinking I should have used a separate INI file for the watched data.  Possibly a "watched.ini" file saved in the data folder.  What do you all think?
