251  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Remote Android Control Solution? on: September 29, 2012, 07:59:42 PM
I am looking for a tool that I am sure exists, but I have yet to find. I want to be able to remotely control an android-based device (tablet, phone, etc). I want to be able to "view" the screen or to take full control. I would like to be able to control key aspects such as enabling or disabling things like data networks or GPS, turning on and off the front/rear camera, and doing other tasks from a central console.

Does anyone know if such a solution exists?

Tinman, actually this is exactly a DDoS. What is happening is one user is telling multiple users to indirectly flood a service or person in an attempt to deny them the ability to process potential targets.

Either way, a DENIAL OF SERVICE, is occurring of a DISTRIBUTED nature. The "scammer" in this case would be denied the ability to perform their "service". DDoS is not simply limited to IP flooding, Security 101.

Nah, I already have those in the new "cpanel" alias. What I am looking for is "God Mode" items vice control panel applets initiated from control.exe
254  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Include Windows 7 Start Button Search Results in FARR? on: September 26, 2012, 07:04:29 AM

I have been trying to work on a solution to populate these results and have them appear in FARR search results (without using shortcuts).

If anyone is willing, I need a list of the GUIDs in order to begin this process. I am going to try and figure out a way to programmatically populate this list from the "God Mode" folder.

Anyone willing to help out? I will work with mouser to develop this as a plugin as it would be EXTREMELY useful.

How strange!

I don't think removing core aliases is the cause of this problem, but i'm not sure what is..

I'm guessing you might have one of your own aliases configured to use %?

Can you do a little more experimenting to figure out what's going on?

The special use of % is actually governed by a new alias "AliasGroups\Installed\EnvVars\EnvVars.alias", so if you delete/disable that you will see behavior when it is around.

Love to hear some more clues about what might be causing this.


Well I actually removed my previous version completely and reinstalled the new beta (ZIP version), so none of my aliases were interfering ^_^ Here are the steps to reproduce:

1) Download portable zip version, extract
2) Delete contents of \AliasGroups\Installed\Core_Aliases
3) Start FARR
4) Press % [SPACE]
5) Enjoy the crash =)

Confirmed, I can duplicate in the portable edition. Removing the core aliases folder produces the crash on win8 x64 pro.

I still say this program is grossly overpriced. Yes, it has a lot of functionality, but hell, I can get a copy of Windows and Office for cheaper than the cost of one license of DOpus.

Taichi, had you considered wildcards such as sctrl vmware* or sctrl windows media* to start, stop or restart all services with those names? If multiple exist in different states, possibly prompting for what to do (start or stop)?

261  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Ubuntu will now have Amazon ads pre-installed on: September 22, 2012, 08:45:49 AM
Amazon shopping results have been integrated into the Unity Dash of Ubuntu 12.10.

The feature comes a day after news that Ubuntu were adding Amazon and Ubuntu One Music web-apps as default items on Unity launcher.

Canonical says that the feature ‘extends what was already introduced in the Music and Video Lenses’ by offering ’a “more suggestions” results category …to searches performed from the home dash.’

The boon for them is that they get a small % cut from every purchase made through the Dash (or the web-app mentioned yesterday), as Oliver Ries explained on the Ubuntu Development mailing list yesterday:

“…if a user clicks the item and purchases it, it will generate affiliate revenue that we can invest back into the project (in a similar way to how we generate revenue from the Firefox search

We have found affiliate revenue to be a good method of helping us to continue to invest in maturing and growing Ubuntu.”

Here is a list of msc files I am going to add for MSC files. This will fall under the admin alias:

azman.mscAuthentication Manager
certmgr.mscCertificate Manager
comexp.mscComponent Services (COM+) Administration
compmgmt.mscComputer Management
devmgmt.mscDevice Manager
diskmgmt.mscDisk Management
eventvwr.mscEvent Viewer
fsmgmt.mscShared Folders Management
gpedit.mscGroup Policy Editor
lusrmgr.mscLocal Users and Groups
NAPCLCFG.mscNetwork Access Protocol Client Configuration
perfmon.mscPerformance Monitor
printmanagement.mscPrint Management
rsop.mscResultant Set Of Policy
SecPol.mscSecurity Policy Editor (A subset of Group Policy)
Services.mscServices manager
TaskSchd.mscTask Scheduler
tpm.mscTrusted Platform Module
WF.mscWindows Firewall with Advanced Security
WMImgmt.mscWindows Management Instrumentation Control

Once this is complete, I will create an adcpl alias for active directory tools. This will include things like DHCP, DNS, RRAS, Active Directory Users and Computers, Sites and Services, Domains and Trusts, etc.

Please let me know what you think of the current or planned aliases! Thanks!

On the note, if you have a separate vendor-specific control panel applet, please pass the .cpl or namespace and GUID for it, and I will create a separate, optional, alias file for the vendor-specific entries.
264  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / New CPanel alias discussion and suggestions on: September 21, 2012, 09:25:41 PM
To all that are interested in the new CPanel alias mentioned here, please post any comments or suggestions to this thread. If you find any missing applets (not vendor specific such as NVidia or AMD, or ones that come with a utility such as sisoft sandra or everest), please post them here and what OS you are running.

My pleasure! I am happy to help. This is a tool that, with these updates, has become indispensable to me.

A note on the control panel list. It is hard coded to the control.exe procedural calls. With Vista, .cpl files slowly went away and were replaced with namespaces. Right now, I am focused solely on adding the core control panel applets found in XP, Vista, 7 and 8. Applets like NVidia control panel, AMD Control Panel, SiSoftware Sandra or Everest, etc. will not be added as not everyone has them and I have no way to detect their presence in FARR.

Another note, the icons are NOT EXACT MATCHES to the icons in the classic control panels. If someone has an icon of decent resolution (32x32), please send me a pm with a link to it and what applet it replaces and I will update the alias for mouser. Additionally, if some are found to be missing or not working, post to a thread in the FARR forum and I will look into it. Be sure to let me know the control panel applet name so I can l look it up.

Please pass any feedback so we can continue to improve this tool and capability. I will be adding admin tools (msc file) and a separate alias file for active directory management (ADUC, Sites and Services, Federated services, DNS, DHCP, etc). So look for that in the next beta release.

Bring on the feedback!
267  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Screenshot Captor 3 - Window Object and Scrolling Capture Screencast Videos on: September 20, 2012, 06:25:07 PM
First, do not take my comments as detracting from the power that SsC brings. SsC is a great tool with a lot of power, my comments only refer to the scrolling capture functionality and are not meant as a detractor to the rest of the application.

I agree with nsathishk in that there needs to be a simple way of performing a scrolling capture without having to tweak the options in place. I do a lot of capture for scrolling windows and use these captures for tutorials, documentation development, and a few other projects, and when I capture, I want it to be as simple as possible. 9 times out of 10, I do not want to tweak any options, I just want the tool to capture the window and provide me the option of saving or editing the capture.

I am also in agreement with peterlonz in that I need a simple option. There is a lot of power in the tweaking options, but to take a simple screen capture of a scrolled window, I haven't found a way to reliably capture a scrolling window in SSC. Browser windows, mirc windows, scrolling word docs, and some of the sources I use for tutorials or documentation purposes all result in "seams", overlaps, or multiple captures of the same area in the final product.
268  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What went wrong with Linux on the Desktop on: September 20, 2012, 05:11:11 PM

I was more referring to a source where one service provider provides for direct import of data from another service (cloud storage, or IMAP, as you called out), besides simply pointing the client to the data already on your computer, as I suggested. And again, I think you knew this. I do not like claims without some source of proof.

If you knew these answers, and your point was what you stated two posts back, why did you not state that up front? I can see what data Google has about me and modify (to include deleting) said data in any of the Google products.
269  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What went wrong with Linux on the Desktop on: September 20, 2012, 04:56:18 PM
Moving files from one cloud into another does exist, of course. Not sure about the other features

270  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What went wrong with Linux on the Desktop on: September 20, 2012, 04:49:00 PM
Why would Google spend time doing this, Tux? There are far too many competing services to justify this. Plus, if you are syncing from a dropbox account, wouldn't the data ALREADY be on your computer (or one you have access to)? Just point Google drive to that folder and your data is synced.

Show me another service that does a direct import of IMAP data from another service. The only way I've ever found to sync IMAP profiles is using a client and draggin/dropping between the two, or some clunky scripts that does it (imapsync).

But something tells me you already know this all of this, didn't you?

Oh, great, you can export the data you actually provided yourself. Now that's useful.

Would you rather not be able to get your data out? Seems like a standard export function that one would expect to be available...
273  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / ipv6-capable Linux/BSD firewall distribution on: September 19, 2012, 04:43:34 AM

I am looking to repurpose my old media server (old p4 system) into a make-shift firewall appliance. One of my key requirements is to have ipv6 deployed internally. This would require a dhcpv6 implementation along with related ipv6 services.

Right now, I have an older machine running Windows 2008 Server acting as a firewall. I would like to re-purpose this machine to server as a secondary domain controller for Windows Server 2012 so I can test out NAP and a few other new features.

Any help is appreciated!

YEAY! We are officially in beta for this release! Glad to see it. There are some nice features here that mouser has put in.

For those of you unfamiliar, you can now use environment variables to reference specific paths in the Windows environment. I personally define one as %google% which points to %userprofile\google drive (c:\users\username\google drive). This can help save a lot of typing. It was this feature that helped identify the lag caused by the custom folder icons (google drive, root of a drive, etc).

Additionally, the shellexec and updated "noresults alias" is a great feature. This helps design FARR to operate more like the run dialog in all versions of Windows. What I mean is this.

Normally, in FARR, you know the name of the program you want and type in an entry from the start menu and FARR finds it as it scans. Let's say, however, you want to directly launch an MMC applet (Disk management, event viewer, etc). Currently, farr does not index control panel applets and requires the use of specially crafted shortcuts. This presents a problem in that these shortcuts have to be created as new control panel applets are identified. My solution to this is to use the run dialog and type devmgmt.msc and launch the file directly since it is in the system path. FARR did not provide this capability. Additionally, some pages I launch by manually executing internet explorer (certain work sites and other sites that present problems in alternative browsers or activex enabled sites). For this, I always manually execute internet explorer and pass it the argument (iexplore www.google.com).

This new "no result" capability allows FARR to more closely mimic the run dialog functionality so that you can launch files directly if you know the name and it is in the system path, but not in a FARR search folder path (say, %windir%, which I don't think many would want scanned by FARR).

I did identify a way for mouser to poll a list of control panel applets in Windows Vista+ (Vista, 7, Cool using the registry since Microsoft has stopped using .cpl files for most functions. Hopefully this makes its way into a future FARR release so we can populate control panel applets and further enhance FARR.

I must say that mouser has done an exuberant amount of work on this release and I think it has progressed very nicely!

Mouser, I tip my hat to you!
