Boot Snooze?  We could shorten it to, wait for it, Booze.   tongue tongue

Cool.  Let's come up with a name for this and I'll package it up as a regular Skwire Empire application.

Opera has a "Confirm exit" option.  Go to Tools, Preferences, Advanced tab and check the box.

Glad to see CSV export is going to work out. I can see how this will add significant value to the app for some people.

Were you able to test it out and see if it exported properly?

v1.0.28 - 2010-01-30
    * AnuVu v1.0.12
        + Added capability to export current view as CSV format.  Choose "File, Export current view to CSV format" from the menu.  (Thanks, AEngineer)



Jim, see if this is what you were after.  Double-quotes and commas within a note should be handled properly.  If you want a header line, it's no trouble to add.  Thanks.

No line breaks please, one line per record
I think a header line would be nice although my memory is that most csv and tab outputs don't have one.

Cool...no line breaks makes things easier.

You're amazing - it's Saturday night and you should be out carousing.

Hehehe...I'm married with two daughters.  No carousing here.  =]

The next couple questions are regarding the CSV format itself. 

1) The CSV RFC says that linebreaks must be preserved.  However, a LOT of so-called CSV readers will choke on this (thinking it's a new record).  Your thoughts?
2) Did you want a header line?

3108  Special User Sections / N.A.N.Y. 2010 / Re: NANY 2010 Release: Anuran on: January 30, 2010, 06:39:22 PM
The date stamp algorithim in Excel is the days since January 1st, 1900 + Military Hours/24

Ugh...the lovely "1900 date" format.  Honestly, what might be better would be for the user to choose a timestamp format, in Anuran, that Excel can recognise and convert itself.  Your thoughts?

Like most here I was most impressed by what I saw, but won't be using it till I have the ability to export readily in either CSV or Tab format, ready for analysis in a spreadsheet or DB.  My quick review didn't show those capabilities - apologies if I missed them.  My suggestions specifically:
- Export option in CSV and/or Tab format - single line to allow importing each record
- Timestamp output option compatible with spreadsheet (Excel) import

1) CSV export shouldn't be difficult, I'll add it to the ToDo.
2) I'll try to finagle this in as well.  Which format did you have in mind?

The reason that number two is not as simple as it may seem is that Anuran has no concept of dates.  From the beginning, it was decided to keep the timestamp options as free-form as possible in staying with Anuran, in general, being as free-form as possible.  In other words, a user could configure Anuran with no timestamps if they wished.

Enhancements I'd love, but not as important
- A project field - with pull-down and ready editing - with default persistence of last project

This may be outside the scope of Anuran but I'll add it to my ToDo as well.  Thanks for the feedback.

Tomos, does the same thing happen with both the .ahk and the .exe?
3112  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: Faster boots combining hibernate and restart on: January 30, 2010, 01:55:35 PM
It should pop up a countdown window after restarting.  Do you run any programs that would block the ability to place a shortcut in your startup folder?  I have code in place to check for a problem when creating the shortcut but if something deletes it afterward, I can't know.

cranioscopical (and anybody else)...what the hell should we call this?
3114  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: Faster boots combining hibernate and restart on: January 30, 2010, 11:43:07 AM
Latest version...includes ability to hibernate or standby on next restart.  Countdown timer should work more reliably than previous version.

v1.0.1 - 2010-02-01
    * Boot Snooze now uses the RunOnce registry key.  (Thanks, wr975 & f0dder)


3115  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: Faster boots combining hibernate and restart on: January 30, 2010, 10:59:43 AM
possible ways to handle it:
1) options.  i don't mind an options file.
2) two exes, hiber-restart, sleep-restart
3) when you launch it with no commandline parameters it would show buttons for: "Restart then Hibernate","Restart then Sleep","Cancel"; you could also pass -rh or -rs as commandline option to specify a choice to take automatically.

Hahaha...I'd actually thought of #2 and #3 as well and had already written code to handle it like #3.  Let me finish it up...
3116  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: Faster boots combining hibernate and restart on: January 30, 2010, 10:46:13 AM
I could easily do options like this but saving any options would necessitate saving them to a file.  Is anybody averse to this?  The reason I ask is that I was trying to keep snack completely self-contained.
3117  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: Faster boots combining hibernate and restart on: January 29, 2010, 06:27:35 PM
New version has a hibernate countdown timer on it.  Please re-download.

I've been meaning to reply to migounanounet's post.  Migounanounet, I really appreciate the feedback and feature suggestion but I have no plans to implement any sort of scheduler in Anuran.  Apologies.
3119  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: Faster boots combining hibernate and restart on: January 29, 2010, 03:35:24 PM
i think that the timer should show on screen the moment the reboot script begins, even if that means a 10 minute countdown.  the aim is to show the user what is going to happen, and let them cancel.  if they are walking away they wont care what is on screen.

Yes, I plan to add this once I get some more testing in.
3120  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: Faster boots combining hibernate and restart on: January 29, 2010, 03:23:38 PM
Here's an AHK prototype:
I wouldn't launch the "10 mins wait then hibernate" command via Autostart but the "runonce" registry setting (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/137367)
The "10 mins wait" command should also check if the system is idle and/or do a "10 seconds to hibernate" countdown.

I'd prefer not to muck about in a user's registry if at all possible.  However, if the startup folder method proves to be a problem, I'll go that route.  The countdown timer can come later since I envisioned this as an app that the user will launch knowing he/she is walking away from their computer for an extended length of time.

3121  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: Faster boots combining hibernate and restart on: January 29, 2010, 02:03:59 PM
i think the danger here is of something going wrong with the post-restart process, and getting into a cycle of never ending reboots.
one way to solve this is when the startup shortcut is run, it should give a countdown to hibernate, with button to cancel+remove shortcut; and if the program ever can't remove the shortcut for some reason it needs to report this and tell user what to do.

Well, it would only ever reboot one time....no loop.  However, your concern about not being able to delete the shortcut is valid and can be handled.

remember that you will want to give the pc some amount of time after the reboot to finish the startup process, otherwise it may not hibernate nicely.

That's why I mentioned a ten-minute delay in my previous post.  I think that ought to be enough, eh?
3122  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: Faster boots combining hibernate and restart on: January 29, 2010, 01:47:20 PM
This would be, I think, a piece of cake to write.  I'm thinking the following logic:

1) Instead of using the normal Windows shutdown, you would run my executable.
2) My executable would insert a shortcut into the computer's startup folder and reboot the computer.
3) After rebooting and waiting, say, ten minutes to allow for a full bootup, the startup shortcut would be removed and the computer would be put into hibernation.

Thoughts?

I tried it today and it works fine on my Win 2k PC at work (although the systray icons look slightly different). Now I have it at home and at work!

Great to hear; thanks for the report.  You can apply this patch on your 2k system to get them looking more similar:

Thanks, it works.  I forgot to mention that Trout is a *great* player.
There is something missing though: the total duration of all files in the playlist.

Thanks for the compliment and feedback.  Here you go:

v1.0.3 build 272 - 2010-01-25
    + Added playlist's total time (in hh:mm:ss format) to the statusbar.  (Thanks, mohamedm)
