I'm not really sure.  The app is named folder-rss and I think it was actually written by someone here at

there seems to be several forks of the original folder-rss but the one by DavidA_UK seems most recent. have you tried sending him a PM or email? His email can be found at his site.

and here is their review for what looks like a similar model to the one you mentioned, ASUS N550JV.
6 Software / Find And Run Robot / Farr vs DiRT series on: May 08, 2015, 09:10:17 PM
Recently Codemasters made the transition from GfWLw to Steamworks and in the process, upgraded DiRT 3 to DiRT 3 Complete Edition.

On hearing this, i rubbed my hands in glee because I could finally play the game I bought 2+ years ago (note: GfWL is not supported in my region therefore I could not save my progress). However there was one more obstacle in my way. Curiously DiRT refuses to start if Farr is running in the background!

This perplexed me at first but a quick search shows this to be a known issue, as can be seen from posts here and here. Hence I wrote this AHK script which works as a middleman by closing Farr before running DiRT and relaunching Farr after you're done with DiRT.

To use it, just unzip and run the "Dirt_3_CE_Launcher (DoCo).ahk" instead of launching DiRT 3 from Steam directly. That's all to it and the script was not extensively tested so caveats apply. Hopefully you'd find it handy.

what issues are you having with the newer version? i am currently using LGS v8.58.183_x64, that too after much ponderation, as most of the buttons worked right off the bat.

I took advantage of the recent visit by Skwire to order a pair and they're exactly what I had expected from reading this thread.

even though I have been playing with it just over a week now, some things are instantly noticeably such as its superb range, reasonable battery life and comfortable cups. Thmbsup

@Twinbee: there seems to be a bug in the currency conversion as can be seen in fig.1 and my settings are per fig.2.

Simple click the main brown/red square dropdown, and then "check for update". That should send you to the full version page.

thanks for the reminder! i had forgotten that i was using the minimalistic look sans main toolbar therefore couldn't find the 'update' button.

now that v1.75 is out, how do i update my v1.61? the main link on the website leads to a 'lite' version and while the portable link downloads a demo version.

Looks similar to Soulver which I have on the iPad.

it was inspired by Soulver it seems..

Quote from: website
Finally, I found an application called "Soulver" - an app with the dual-frame design I initially had in mind! The current PC version was too old and had many bugs, but it turned out the Soulver team made great strides in developing a version for the Apple Macintosh. Our hearty congrats go out to Aqualia for creating a wonderful piece of software, but I couldn't wait for a Windows port, hence OpalCalc is the result after years of work.
21 Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: Screenshot Captor: A feature I would like added - precise region capture options on: March 18, 2015, 01:22:19 AM
... One question. I have made my external viewer. Is there a way to get a captured image to open in automatically without my having to open and paste the image into it?

there are two ways to do this. one is via the Post-Capture Options, in the "Post Capture Commandline Tools to Run" section where you can specify the path to PaintDotNet.exe with the "%file%" argument. however with this method, will be invoked after *each* capture.


the other way is to add to the Tools menu, where you can open the images in at your convenience.

hello and welcome gwcook,

you can uncheck the default hotkey entry and add your own by right-clicking somewhere in the box (Fig.1) and as you can see in Fig.2, Farr even checks for you if the chosen hotkey is available or reserved for some other apps (as in my case).
