Does Cathy only write to the local folder?
I would think so, since it is portable.

Portable only means that it doesn't need a specific location present at run time, not that it doesn't use another location temporarily.  It's just that if it works for a different user, it seems that permissions is the right path to go down.

Have you tried making a new user account and testing from there?
I have tried that and guess what: Cathy works as expected for that new user account. (location= C:\tools\catalog\cathy)
Of course that is no workable solution...

It proves - once again - that Cathy can work under Win7 x64 without problems.

Now, what does that mean?
And how could I make Cathy work under my own account?

That does seem to point to permissions problems.  Does Cathy only write to the local folder?  Is there possibly another folder that you don't have access to?  I'd think not... just going over the possible problems.  If not, though, I'd suggest checking the security for the folder Cathy is running in, and set specific permissions for your user on that folder rather than depending on the default user permissions.  Also check to make sure what groups your user is in to make sure that your user groups are what you think they should be.

Going back to Brutsch - considering some of the pictures he's posted, I think losing his job may be the least of his worries considering how so much of his antics involved photos of minors. With the publicity that's bound to ensue once the main newswires start picking up on this story, somebody in some official capacity is going to be forced to consider charges and possible prosecution. Be interesting to see if it's the feds or some state that goes first. (It's an election year. Spanking somebody like this guy makes for good campaign copy.)

But that's assuming somebody doesn't come gunning for him first and make it all very simple.

I don't disagree that someone might *try*, but as long as (a) the photos are not in the child pornography range and (b) they were obtained from the sources he says (facebook, twitter, etc), then it's not going to fly.  From my understanding, they were sexualized, but not explicit.  And considering what I see on facebook, twitter, and even at malls, that's not going to hold up.  And truthfully, I don't think that either side is pristine in that regard, i.e. adults shouldn't be looking at tweens in that way, but (and I know this is not considered PC), they shouldn't be dressing in that way either.

In my home state it might not be that easy unless you could show it affected the person's ability to perform their job.

Is your state an exception to the At-Will employment laws?  It says he's in Texas, so he's pretty much screwed.

But the thing about this 'outing' (not saying whether bad or good) is that if he works for a financial services company, and someone truly outed him (i.e. said Michael Brutsch if XX company), he'd most likely lose his job.  Its happened before...

I will say, that the thing I like more about the kindle as compared to the nook is that your account supports anything you send to it, so you don't have the whole syncing thing to get non-kindle books on it.  That said, like you said it doesn't support epub and the Nook does.  Calibre is apparently good enough to make up for that, though I've never used it with my daughter's Nook.

i know we're off topic (in my own topic to boot!), but have you played with Clojure at all?  That's what I'd planned to learn functional programming in, but knowing a bit of Java already was what made me sit up and take notice of your link, and I wondered if you had any opinions on the merits of the two.
2561  Special User Sections / N.A.N.Y. 2013 / Re: NANY 2013 Pledge: Track My Stuff! on: October 12, 2012, 02:19:50 PM
Also, it would be a chance to do something simple in Play2 and Scala to get familiar with the stuff

Ooh... thanks for that!  I'm going to have to figure out something *else* to build to try those out! Grin

Do you have a roadmap for what features you're going to include?  Just asking b/c I know my daughter loves doing this, and as you said, she uses graph paper and colored pencils right now.
2564  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Portable alternative for Cathy (cataloging freeware) that runs on Win7 64 bit? on: October 12, 2012, 11:44:12 AM
you could also try the compatibility mode settings

I personally think TaoPhoenix has a pretty useful insight, and it is one I've subnconsciously followed for all of my apps as well.

It's not that... it just seems a bit premature.  After all, I've only posted an initial precis, and it wasn't really a suggestion like hey maybe you could put this in there to make it more useful or anything like that.  Don't know... just struck me in the wrong way at the time.  Not a big deal, and like I said, most of my apps are created at that intersection of useful for me and useful for learning something/honing skills, and this falls at that intersection.

That looks cool!  And I agree that when (not if!) you finish, you should seek an OEM deal smiley

^ That sounds rather... premature.  And a bit negative.  But, we'll see.

You suggest that "...but this was most likely a civil seizure..." but if that is the case, then I do not understand why the police/FBI/SS etc . were so heavily involved with the police and SS (GCSB) in NZ.
As far as I was aware, in any civil actions in NZ, the police would not normally get involved - only if a crime had been committed.

The civil seizure is not predicated by a criminal procedure.  However, the two are related, i.e. they seized him based upon criminal proceedings.  During the criminal seizure of his person, they also seized his assets based on civil forfeiture rules, so that this part would not be based on the criminal proceedings.  This is usually used in the case of drug lords and such, as they deal in cash and other assets with ready liquidity and as such if immediate seizure and forfeiture is not enacted, there might be nothing to enact it against.

Confuzzling. The US judiciary apparently want Dotcom extradited because they cannot put him on trial until he is in the US.
However, it seemed to me that they had already established his guilt in something, having effectively somehow already charged and tried him in his absence - otherwise why sequester all his personal and business assets as they would do for a confirmed criminal?

There are two types of seizure - criminal and civil.  Criminal is what you refer to, but this was most likely a civil seizure (most likely because most these days are, and the requirements place the onus on the claimant, not the authorities).

A good explanation of asset forfeiture lawsw

Oh, it's just that I don't like to download stuff other than very deliberately, and especially not pdfs, and usually only if its something that I'm going to keep.  I think there are several others like that, so I googled it and found the original article smiley
2574  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Steam set to become app store on: October 11, 2012, 08:10:29 AM
I'm curious whether they will make the software sold via steam able to run without running steam. If not, you're buying software that you can only rely on when you have access to a connection, which is inadequate imo.

Have you tried this recently?  I have three of my computers (XP desktop, W7 Laptop, Macbook) set to offline, and I haven't had any problems with this on any of them...

Seems to be from MSN for those of us that like credits and/or websites instead of PDFs smiley
