hi thefatdude and welcome to DC  Thmbsup
The CZB plugin pack for FARR includes JSCalc: "powerful calculator for farr with history tape, variables, conversion functions, and best of all a super easy way to add your own custom functions." Get it here: http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=17153.0

"[Feature] - You can now hit PgDn from search box to tell FARR to find *ALL* results, not just the few that normally fit in the window; You can continue to hit PgDn and PgUp to page through results after that.  When more results available the statusbar now hints about PgDn."
Nice!  smiley Confirmed working. Two small tweak thoughts:
1. if I search "pdf" FARR gets 2000+ hits. Hit PgDn and FARR starts working at listing them. If I then PgDn again before FARR has filled the entire list then I get a scroll down in the list followed by a quick reset of that scroll as FARR keeps filling the list. For a search with many matches FARR takes several seconds to fill so that can get annoying. Two alternatives: Stop filling the list once the user presses PgDn. Or keep filling the list but remember how many PgDn the user has pressed and move there after the list is complete.
2. On second PgDn FARR scrolls the long list but the cursor is in the input box. That makes triggering something in the list by keyboard tricky. Better alternative: let the second PgDn do the same as arrow down + PgDn.

(Unrelated: hotkey config: wasn't there a special variable that represents the main input box contents in the "Text for search edit box" inputfield? I want a hotkey to prepend current inputbox text, i.e. "newtext $$1" but $$1 doesn't work. I've probably just forgotten what it is but can't find it through searches/helpfile now so...)

- Give an equal share for something I REALLY like vs to something I somehow liked at the moment, but not any more.
That could be solved by multiple clicks on stuff you wish to support more, no? I agree on the other things you wrote.

Flattr might be too easy. I fear malware scripts that will attempt to clickjack money from flattr users.

Thanks, that might also work. Though I'd like to use a program with more advanced playlist features (like Winamp or foobar2000 if possible) to control as the stream source, so I'll try the shoutcast possibility first I think. Have not had time to actually try to set it up yet.
156  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: output audio to two devices in Win XP? (PulseAudio?) on: February 08, 2010, 02:56:49 PM
Hi, tried installing the Kernel Streaming version but couldn't get it work - probably doing something wrong.
I like the shoutcast idea! I'll try to set that up when I have more time (have no shoutcast experience).
157  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: output audio to two devices in Win XP? (PulseAudio?) on: February 06, 2010, 03:29:24 PM
Hi and thanks for the feedback. I've tried all relevant winamp plugins I've found, including those in that thread, but can't get it to work (alternatively, not working without delay). Also tried AudioRepeater last time I looked for a solution to this but got delay problems. The speaker positions for the two soundcards will be close enough for it to sound weird. I've also searched for some foobar plugin but can't find one that fits the bill. That's why I'm now more leaning towards trying to get two separate mediaplayers instances in sync.

Hi, time for yet another post in this thread where I (very seldomly) talk to myself  Grin

I just did some new searches on this problem but didn't find a solution. But I'm thinking of another, second best solution: using two instances of some media player, tied to one output soundcard each and exactly syncronized somehow, possibly through an autohotkey script. So the user would only use (and perhaps also only see) one media player window. But clicking pause there will instantly pause also the other one. The same goes for changes to the playlist, jumping to a location in the song and so on. Does this seem doable? Any other feedback? And if someone knows an application that already does what I want (output to two soundcards simultaneously) then post away of course.
159  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: All AutoHotkey (AHK) coders read: No more upx packing of compiled ahk utils on: January 08, 2010, 03:21:57 PM
I completely understand the worries here. All my small programs fall into this category and some have been FP flagged before. I see that Mouser also posted at the AHK forum: http://www.autohotkey.com/forum/topic53129.html . Let's see what folks there reply. As mouser says (in that thread), as long UPX packing is default mode for Autohotkey any site admin that wants to avoid FP deflecting work would have to manually monitor compiled AHK uploads for UPX. Quick idea: maybe autohotkey could be changed so that is uses different colored icons for files compiled with UPX (standard green H) and withoug UPX (same H but blue background, for example)?  That would make spotting the UPX ones easier once you've got the files down into a folder.

Useful! Well done mnemonic Thmbsup
Here's one extension I can think of: there are some sites that use gmaps to let you make custom running maps e.g. http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/ . Maybe the "new route" screen could get a box for entering such a URL. It might even be possible for the program to import some data from a URL, like the total length of the track, coordinates etc?

Great find Mouser! I also got to mission 3. Things got much harder quickly there.

Here's another game recommendation: Altitude, http://altitudegame.com/
2D Multiplayer airplane action with an incredible feel to it. Simple to get started but there are always new skills and moves to learn and master, especially in the teamwork game modes.

The Skiff Reader is being developed by the Hearst Corporation [...] it will be crippled by proprietary DRM. Reports also say that the software running it will allow advertising to be "injected" into content.
I didn't know about that. Disappointing if they'll try to DRM-cripple it. I'm not too worried though. Look what happened when the industry tried to push DRM for portable audio players. Plain non-DRM mp3 players won. The same is bound to happen with ebook readers. That said, I hope we don't get a whole year wasted on failed DRM attempts before reasonably priced, large size and DRM free devices show up.
166  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Are my EBook Reader dreams going to be answered in 2010? A full size reader? on: January 04, 2010, 02:05:41 PM
its not that it has to be exactly 8.5x11, it's that i need to be able to open a pdf file of standard printed page size, and see the whole page and be able to read it comfortably -- and not need to pan and zoom.
Agreed, but if the device has decent white space cropping then it can be about 4x4 cm smaller and still display common text documents at 1:1 compared to printouts.

The new Skiff Reader is 11.5 inch. That just might be large enough.

I've longed for an A4 sized ebook reader for some time too. It is weird that so little of the ereader buzz is focused on large size screen readers. Maybe my first ebook reader will not be a standalone device but instead an ultrathin netbook/laptop with swivel and a screen with ebook mode. PixelQi screens are said to reach markets early 2010. Check this link for some amazing looking preview photos of their screens. http://pixelqi.com/blog1/...n-office-lighting-part-2/

Skwire's coding snack seems like a great solution. If the videos are on youtube then there are also several good webapps. Dirpy (http://www.dirpy.com/ ) is the best one I've found. Very quick and no-nonsense site. Enter the youtube video URL, tweak some settings if you want to (choose a subsection of the video, change id3 information, set bitrate...) and download the mp3.

Hi all  smiley As you can see I'm entering NANY at the last minute (almost). The NANY event is great and I'm thrilled to soon try out some of the other apps. Great job Mouser and Phil and everyone else.  BigTimer is a pretty small autohotkey app so the Mini NANY category seems fitting. It is finished and I'll post it very soon.

First one issue though: All the autohotkey code is done by me. I was first inspired by Skrommel's timer script (http://www.donationcoder....15703.msg140627#msg140627 ) but then deviated so much that no code from that is left. I have however until now used/adapted this icon and audio file:
icon + image: CC_by_sa_2.5 Derivative from image by Júlio Reis
audio: CC_sampling+_1 Derivative from sound by Corsica_S
I want to make BigTimer FOSS. But please advice me on license specifics. Do I need to use some special license to include the (adapted) files above with BigTimer? I have made an icon from the image file and that icon is compiled into the BigTimer exe. I also include some separate files in the zip: an .icl file with two adapted icons (one for each mode) and a .png of the image and a .wav of the audio. Those are used by BigTimer.exe .

edit: thanks for the feedback scancode. In the end, I chose to bypass the problem by not compiling the icon into the exe.

NANY 2010 Entry Information

Application Name BigTimer
Version v091227
Short Description A small timer app with big top left corner digits
Supported OSes Windows XP and later
Web Pagehttp://nod5.dcmembers.com/bigtimer.html
Download Linkbigtimer.zip
System Requirements
  • Win XP or later
Version History
  • v091227 first version
Author http://nod5.dcmembers.com/

I wanted a small, simple timer and alarm app that was very quick to set up yet had big digits. There are many timer/eggclock/alarm apps out there but I didn't find one that did exactly what I wanted. So I made it myself.
- TIMER and ALARM modes
- big digits in the top left screen corner
- timer digit display phases: above 5 minutes = only minutes are shown, 5-2 minutes = M:SS, 2-0 minutes = seconds.
- when time is up an alarm sounds and a clock image pops up
Planned Features
A countup mode i.e. BigTimer counts upwards to let you keep track of for how long you've been doing something.


Unzip, then run BigTimer.exe. Help is shown on first run.

Using the Application
input 0000-2359 --> ALARM set in HH:MM format
input 0-999    --> TIMER set in minutes
See webpage/helpfile for command line and FARR use
none, just delete the files

 smiley BTW, are you on Vista or W7? I have only testdriven it on XP so it would be good to know if it works fine on the rest too.
172  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Fast Keystroke Freezes Up FARR on: December 05, 2009, 05:41:23 AM
ok, I just had the problem I described again. The title test translates to "Windows - no harddrive" (see attachment in previous post)

I sometimes get that when booting up without the usual USB Drive plugged in. I wasn't actually sure it was FARR that was causing the problem, but I wondered if there was some history somewhere??

I think I've pinpointed my problem now (note: the problem now seems unrelated to the one siouxdax et al have, see my posts above): the error messages come only when I have an Android phone connected to the PC via USB and do not have its SD card mounted (i.e. so I can read/write files and folders on it) and then bring up the FARR window through the hotkey and do some search. Does that make sense mouser? Can you think of some FARR internal cause for that?

174  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Idea: File note on: November 28, 2009, 09:15:27 AM
hi kartal, sorry for the late reply. I've had a very short supply of time lately.

I don't understand what you mean by relative .info folder. Say that you use filenoter on "C:\folder\file.mp3".
What should then be generated? "C:\folder\.info\file.mp3.txt"?
175  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: tv_out: a shortcut for quickly turning extended desktop on/off on: October 13, 2009, 12:36:19 PM
Did you doublecheck that the desktop icon pointed to the new tv_out.ahk that you edited (and not to the old default version)?  tellme If that wasn't it then I don't know what to do. Because when I change the code to DISPLAY1 as described above then I get the desired result on my Win XP machine. I'm sorry to say that I don't have time to look for other solutions for this at the moment either, but let me know if you find a solution on your own and then I'll add it.
