1  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Exclude Find and Run Hotkey from a Program? on: February 24, 2015, 01:52:42 PM
TyrionBean, in addition to what mouser and tomos said, if you use Autohotkey I think you can make a small hotkey script that triggers FARR with ctrl+space unless some programs A B C ... are active. First set the FARR hotkey to the Break button. Then use a script like this

[copy or print]
GroupAdd, nofarr, ahk_exe game.exe
GroupAdd, nofarr, ahk_exe anothergame.exe
return

#IfWinNotActive, ahk_group nofarr
^Space:: send {break}
#IfWinNotActive
Add one GroupAdd line for each process name that you want to take priority over FARR with regard to the control+space hotkey.

I've tried the latest Win 10 preview a bit in Virtualbox. Like it! I can so far only see improvements compared to 8.1. Like before we can opt out of logging in with a Microsoft account at install. 10 feels like the heir to Win7 Microsoft should have made in the first place.
4  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / request: allow FARR searches with options open on: January 21, 2015, 07:24:53 AM
While the FARR options window is open FARR search is disabled. Is that necessary? Could it be worked around? When creating more advanced aliases it is handy to search for files with FARR. But to do so one has to exit/reopen the options inbetween.
5  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Custom alias icon and file properties conflict on: January 21, 2015, 07:21:07 AM
Setting a custom icon in an alias breaks the right click file proporties action for me.

Create an alias under myaliases with this as result
[copy or print]
test | C:\test.txt /icon=test.ico
Copy test.ico to same folder as myaliases.alias

Next search FARR to display that result > right click > properties.
I get this error message:
[copy or print]
Windows cannot find 'C:\test.txt /icon=test.ico'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.
Happens in both Windows 7 and Windows 8.
6  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Custom alias icon issue Win7 on: January 21, 2015, 07:19:13 AM
Hi, Custom alias icons doesn't show on my Win7 computer. They do work on another Win 8 machine.

I can reproduce the problem by creating an alias under myaliases with this in the result box
Formatted for Generic Code with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. test | C:\test.txt /icon=test.ico
and copy test.ico to same folder as myaliases.alias (under C:\users\[current user]\ ...).
The icon isn't shown in FARR on my Win7 computer.

I have tried: FARR restart, reboot, FARR reinstall, refresh icon cache in Windows, change default application for .ico files, different files, different icon files.

7  DonationCoder.com Software / N.A.N.Y. 2015 / Re: NANY 2015 Release: WhenLast (Android app) on: December 30, 2014, 09:38:03 AM
I liked your old timestamp disc idea mouser and I like this too. Haven't had time to try the apk yet but here are some bits of quick feedback based on the screenshots.
1 Are "edit" and "now" buttons really needed? We could just press to do the now action and longpress to edit.
2 I like the short catchphrase "When Last?". Why not put that in the title area. A longer title run the risk of the dread that is ellipticalization on smaller screen devices as in Masonjar13's screenshot.
3 is there a mode to toggle time format between specific dates and a more minimal "days since" mode that would only say for example "8"?
4 user set time interval targets for each task. The timestamp/days since text could get more bold and more intensely red the later the user is (relative to interval target length).
5 a bigger idea for some future version: shared tasks plus some basic stats for how many times each user has done the task. A lot of multi person household tasks could be managed with the app then.

There are several interesting tiny bluetooth device projects for Android that I could see an app like yours interacting with in good ways in the future, like Flic but also Fizzly. Flic buttons could for example be quick ways to reset the time count for a specific item.

The obvious solution is something like Dragon software's speech-to-text. But the catch is that the speech is in Mandarin, and so far as I've been able to find, there's no software available to turn Mandarin speech into text.
Microsoft's real time translation project for Skype will likely support Mandarin in a not so distant future.
Quote
For now, the voice function of Skype Translator will only work in English and Spanish, the two most widely spoken languages in the world after Mandarin (it's likely the tech giant will want to launch in Mandarin as well, and position the tool as being for business as well as education). However, in a blog post the company says we can expect "40 plus instant messaging languages" to be up for translations.
http://www.wired.co.uk/ne.../15/skype-translator-tool

While geared toward real time translation of small snippets of speech, I bet there is already work underway by MS and third parties to apply it also to do recorded-speech-to-text-processing. Here is a MS preview video of the Skype real time translation

A low budget hardware alternative is a no name usb foot pedal like this in combination with an autohotkey script that sends a pause command to the audio playback device. I've used that when transcribing short audio segments from time to time. For a big transcription project more foot pedals would be useful but for smaller a single pedal may be enough.
10  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Bleep… Bittorrent unveils serverless & encrypted chat client on: November 21, 2014, 05:57:30 PM
BTW does the peer matching for Bittorrent Sync work the same way? Some write ups claim that Bittorrent Sync is more secure than Dropbox since the data isn't cloud stored. But if the client matching happens in the cloud a powerful agency could require the cloud operator to hand over the secret key and then use the key to access the Sync folder directly on the client. ...

Some recent new prompted BT to write this explainer that answer my old question above about Bittorrent Sync. Thought others might find it useful.

- Folder hashes are not the folder key (secret). They are used to discover other peers with the same folder. The hashes cannot be used to obtain access to the folder; it is just a way to discover the IP addresses of devices with the same folder. Hashes also cannot be guessed; it is a 160 bit number, which means that it is cryptographically impossible to guess the hash of a specific folder.

-Links make use of standard public key cryptography to enable direct and secure key exchange between peers. The link itself cannot be used for decrypting the communication as it only contains the public keys of the machines involved in the exchange. After a direct connection is established (the user can verify that by comparing the certificate fingerprint for both peers) Sync will pass the folder key over an encrypted channel for the other peer. In addition, the public key and the folder hash appear after the # sign in the URL, which means that all modern browsers won’t even send this to the server. Additional features have been implemented to further secure the key exchange using links, including (1) the links automatically expire within 3 days (set as default) and (2) explicit approval is required by the inviting peer before any key exchange takes place (also set as a default).

- We host a tracker server for peer discovery; the tracker is only there to enable peers to find each other. It is not a part of the folder exchange. As mentioned earlier, the hashes cannot be used to obtain access to a folder.

- Sync security is completely dependent on client-side implementation. The public infrastructure is there to enable better connectivity and a more user-friendly folder sharing experience. Compromising the public infrastructure cannot impact the security of Sync

Where you have installed Everything does not matter.

The script only opens images with these extensions jpg,jpeg,tif,png,gif (to change that edit line 23) - maybe you selected some images with other extensions?

Save and try this troubleshooting version of the script. The only difference is that it displays a popup message test1 when you press F4 and when IrFanView has loaded the first image and you press windows+left/right it should display three popups (test 2, 3, 4).
Do you get all those four popups?
Does the test1 popup include all the paths to the images selected in Everything?
Does the test3 popup show a number?
Does the test4 popup show a file path to one of the images selected in Everything?

It has nothing to do with FARR. But obviously you need Everything. And one of the image viewers mentioned.
16  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Everything Search Engine: tips, tricks, ideas and code for poweruse on: November 10, 2014, 04:28:25 PM
IrfanView
I tried it again with IrFanView (portable version) just now and it works all right on my end.

Could you have some other script with the hotkey windows+left/windows+right that overrides this one? You can troubleshoot that by temporarily replacing the two instances of the string "#Right" in the .ahk source with some more unusual hotkey like "^#+i" (control+shift+win+i) and save and test if that makes a difference.

Did you try the .exe version or the .ahk version? If .ahk version, do you have the latest version of Autohotkey installed?

Edit: if someone else is reading this and has tried it with IrFanView on their system and found it working (or not), chip in.

Wow! Lines filtering based on keywords/phrase is a really useful feature.  Thmbsup

I already use the features line bookmarks and code folding in text editors. But lines filtering complements those other two features. I wish both line bookmarks and lines filtering were available everywhere - not just in text editors! In web browser, pdf readers, word processors and so on.

I for one am unable to get this script working.  It displays the first result image and then other non result images in the same folder.
It does not display the images found in other directories.
What image viewer are you trying the script with? Just to make sure, you are using windows+right/windows+left to move to display the next/previous of the selected images after the initial F4 press?

23  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: IDEA: a software that makes normal windows apps more touch friendly. on: September 30, 2014, 01:15:55 AM
The problem when you are using windows in desktop mode with a touch interface, is basically the size of the touchable things.
Yes indeed!

Some suggestions:

1. tweak the high DPI scaling settings.
http://www.howtogeek.com/...ays-and-fix-blurry-fonts/
http://www.howtogeek.com/...-in-windows-8.1-update-1/

2. Get Microsoft's Sysinternals application ZoomIt, set a hotkey for LiveZoom mode, make an autohotkey script to send that hotkey and finally make a shortcut to the script in the taskbar and on the desktop. Click the shortcut to toggle zoom on off. If you have any hardware buttons on the tablet (volume, lock mode, ...) that autohotkey can handle then consider triggering this toggle with them. It is easy to change volume in Win8 with touch through the charms bar anyway. Use this to zoom in and click on tiny things and then zoom back out. The autohotkey script could even be made to autozoom out after a few seconds to avoid having to click the shortcut again.
http://technet.microsoft....-us/sysinternals/bb897434

3. The above works ok I think but what is really missing is customizable gestures that can be tied to autohotkey. With that we could do almost anything. For example a triple finger swipe could zoom in/out. I've seen no solution for autohotkey for that. There are some post in the ahkscript forums talking about it but no developers there appears to be working on it. There is GamePlay from Gestureworks, https://gameplay.gestureworks.com/how-it-works , that I haven't tried. But they do custom buttons and only for specific applications/games AFAICT. If a few always on top buttons could be made to do the same operations on all windows í.e. toogle zoom in/out then that would be almost as good as custom gestures. I think there would be huge demand for a tool that simply delivers a few global swipe gestures that can trigger whatever code one wants.

EDIT:
I'm very glad you started this thread superboyac as it got me googling some more. I found TouchMe Gesture Studio http://www.yasharbahman.c...p/touchme-gesture-studio/ (app in Win app store, free trial). It sets up global gesture hotkeys! Since it can make a gesture like three finger swipe send a keyboard sequence we can use it to trigger autohotkey hotkeys. Which means we can make gestures that do almost anything smiley I'll try it some more and post back here if I run into any drawbacks.

EDIT2:
Ok, tried it some more and got to say: TouchMe is AWESOME! Microsoft should have paid the Minecraft money to the dev of this app instead cheesy

I'm sorry Saffron and I'm sorry Mouser! I really like the photo with Saffron and the "aubergine cup" for some reason. Because it doesn't look like just any old cup, it stands out? Just like animals are not all alike. You know I've heard people (not here!) go into "it was just an animal" kind of thinking and talking when the worst happens. Downplaying the terribleness. It hurts me especially when parents try to console children that way. The animals people share life with are individuals with their own personalities and quirks and likes and dislikes.

[copy or print]
| /all_white.ico
but that displays "/all_white.ico" as path. Putting only
on a line makes an icon appear.
