Whoa, long list - looks like it might be a fun read smiley
8002  DonationCoder.com Software / fSekrit / Progress towards v1.2 on: September 06, 2006, 05:16:09 PM
First: I hope to have v1.2 (or a beta) ready by the 15th.

Second: for some reason v1.1 wasn't uploaded to the site before now - blame is probably on me. So even though it was done on April 11th, you've all been missing stuff like text-find until today, doh.

What will v1.2 bring?

A better way of saving. Saving to the executable of a running program isn't possbible under windows (at least not without some very dirty tricks), so one has to jump through some hoops. The new way is still a bit bothersome, but better than the old. What this means to you is that fSekrit will not "flicker in and out of existance" when saving. (mostly done, needs extensive testing)

Somewhat more secure, by using a non-zero IV (techy stuff ;P). (done)

Custom font support, as per request. Per-user registry setting. Currently debating with myself whether to add a GUI font selection, or require the user to regedit. (done - unless you people want GUI).

Import and export of text files, because copy/paste can be a bit tedious. Also, it seems that the win9x clipboard is limited to ~12kb of text?, so this is needed for win9x support. (not started yet, should be easy)

Better win9x support. By creating a ~1meg note on NT and loading on Win98, I found out that large notes are read just fine by - but when saving, only ~60kb makes it to the file. (shouldn't be too hard to fix)
8003  DonationCoder.com Software / fSekrit / Re: Importing text on: September 06, 2006, 05:02:47 PM
I'm planning on adding file->import and file->export or similar for v1.2, actually. Partly because it's useful, partly because the win98 clipboard seems limited in how much text it can handle.

I hope to have v1.2 (or a beta) ready by the 15th.
8004  DonationCoder.com Software / fSekrit / Re: Search inside Fsekrit? on: September 06, 2006, 04:58:48 PM
there is a real problem with putting version # in filename, it breaks all offsite download links, pad file, etc.

ps. i get v1.1 when i download.
Hm yes, I can see that - bummer. Probably firefox (or fasterfox...) messing up and caching too much. And now the donationcoder DNS is fubar here again, *sigh* - this post is only possible because of agressive DNS caching by... firefox or fasterfox smiley
8005  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Article: How Much System Memory Is Really Enough? on: September 06, 2006, 04:51:40 PM
Even WinXP is very usable with 512meg ram - adding a gig makes tasking stuff better, and 2gig is a bit overkill but it's nice being able to make a 1gig ramdrive sometimes smiley

Yeah, linux goes by the "unused memory is wasted memory" like BSD, and does extensive caching - this is a good thing, and IMHO not a reason for slowdowns, since filesystem cache is discarded when an app needs memory for other stuff.

Can't see why a linux box would run slow with 512meg :-s
8006  DonationCoder.com Software / fSekrit / Re: Search inside Fsekrit? on: September 06, 2006, 04:48:57 PM
Hm, I still get v1.0 - possibly a cache issue, though?

Btw, could you retain the version number in the zip name? That'd definitely resolve any cache issues smiley

I agree with cranioscopical, leave things as they are - other solutions could end up pretty messy and unmanagable. It also sends some signal to companies, I guess...
8010  DonationCoder.com Software / fSekrit / Re: Search inside Fsekrit? on: September 05, 2006, 05:02:38 PM
fSekrit has had search since v1.1 (which is currently the current version), but for some reason this version never got up on the DonationCoder site. I'm attaching it here...

Work on v1.2 is progressing nicely, I hope to have it done by the 15th, or at least a beta. I need a few cleanups and some work on win9x compatibility (what a limited and quirky operating system, *sigh*), and then of course a bunch of bugtesting...

i'm not proud of that moment but sometimes i wonder if it's the only solution for such cases..
Better than getting ripped off by the company... and them refurbishing your drive and giving it to some other person >_<

When you RMA a drive, anything can happen...

1) you could get the same disk back ("nothing is wrong with it"), and risk having to pay some tech fee. Never happened to me.
2) you could get a "refurbished" drive, happened to me twice with IBM (fsckers).
3) you could get a brand new drive (happened with the single maxtor disk I've RMA'ed).

If the drive temperature is off in the second box as well, and there's no firmware update or something, and you're going to replace the drive anyway, go for the RMA. A little trick that makes sure you'll get a new drive is to hook it to a PSU you don't care much about, then short-circuit the drive with a screwdriver until it stops working completely.
8014  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: raid 0 - lots of fun on: September 05, 2006, 03:29:18 AM
Try moving the drive to another system and see if the temp readings are unsane there too. If so, backup data and check if there's some new firmware out for the drive :-s
8015  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: raid 0 - lots of fun on: September 05, 2006, 03:14:08 AM
Try touching the drive - that'll tell you for sure. Temperature sensor is probably screwy, or perhaps the software. 85C is pretty insane for a drive, IMHO.
8016  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: raid 0 - lots of fun on: September 05, 2006, 02:17:52 AM
Crikey :/

If it's failing hard, rush off to get some replacement drive... and either power off and don't turn on till you got it, or keep it running but with no disk activity on the failing drive :/

8021  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Pagefile.sys on: September 03, 2006, 08:13:30 AM
If you've got plent of ram (in my experience at least a gigabyte, but preferably two) you can disable the paging file entirely, if you're running XP (win2k will create a temp pagefile at boot if you disable it >_<).

Go to system properties -> advanced tab -> performance <settings button> -> advanced tab -> virtual memory <change button> -> select "no paging file" and press <set button> for each partition that has a paging file. Then click all the OK buttons smiley, reboot, and you can delete pagefile.sys.

urlwolf you are a genius.

Actually, I think he's a bit of a party pooper ;P

Humm, I'd rather use RAR self-extracting password-protected files... better compression, and I trust The Russians (TM). They're using AES as well.

Man, I love your graphical style.

Of the first two (beach) pictures, I like the second one with the smaller cody best.
