I propose we have a thread where we can recommend gadgets that we like,
Thmbsup

Gadget to be read as in 'totally generic gadget', or does it have to be software-ish?

SleepTill updated/reached version 1.0.0

By request I added a few parameters/features:
- Date and Time offsets from 'now' can be specified
- No longer accepts '-' as option-specifier (needed for the days offset)

The offset for days can be specified by using -+<days> instead of a date. (Both the - and the + need to be there!)
Specify the offset for hours or minutes (seconds is no useful option imho) by using :+<hours> or ::+<minutes>
If an hour or minute offset is given, it is calculated from the current time, not from 00:00, that wouldn't be usable.

The updated /? help message:

SleepTill 1.0.0 (c) 2012, Ath : Wait for a date/time to occur, then continue.
Usage:
SleepTill [date] [-+days] [time] [:+hours|::+mins] [/d] [/?]
[date] : Optional date in yyyy-mm-dd format, default: today
[-+days] : Add 'days' to current date to wait for
[time] : Optional time in hh:mm[:ss] format, if not supplied: 00:00
[:+hours|::+mins] : Add 'hours' or 'minutes' to current time
/d : Show some debugging info
/? : Show this helpmessage
Remarks:
- Either date or time, or both, should be provided to start the wait
- Date/time should be in the future to start the wait
- Pressing Ctrl-C stops the wait


Download attached zipfile and extract. Use as documented.

I can add a feature like that. I'm not sure when I'll be working on the dev-system where I've made this tool. Maybe today, maybe tomorrow. Please hang-on.

Only some general advise:
Get a current model, not last-years shop-sale type of a 'bargain'.
Select on the screen quality/brightness, there is a difference; and take home the one that you tested being good...

For a girl of that age, looks do matter, AFAIR Wink

Which adds the most entropy - adding 30 to a number, or adding 10 three times?
I'd add 7, 11 and 13, because they're prime numbers, adding 31 in total which is also a prime number... tongue tongue Grin

508  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Strategies to stay with Windows 7 as long as possible on: November 12, 2012, 04:35:58 PM
Windows 7 dropped support for 16-bit programs and programs which include legacy 16-bit code.
Minor correction: That is for x64 editions only, and it happened on Vista x64 (and probably on XP x64 before that) already.

Can you attach your Strokesfile please?

Edit: Seeing that you (seem to have) added --winwait schtasks.exe 6 to wait a maximum of 6 seconds for the executable to be loaded, that is probably the solution you need. Running the executable without permitting it some time to get running is apparently a bit too quick.
That's not an error, a feature or a bug, but just how things go (in Windows), IMHO.

It also can't find the update server, so it's definitely a proxy issue huh
514  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: DiskBoss Pro v3.0 24-Hours Giveaway on: November 10, 2012, 01:50:46 PM
Unfortunately I can't get it to register from behind my proxy server, despite setting the proxy parameters manually, and restarting the application Sad
Or do I need a specific Customer Name that goes with this number?

Although the actual window title reads "C:\Windows\system32\schtasks.exe", the WindowName seems to be "schtasks.exe".
Well, the ProcessList() function of AutoIt returns just the name of the executable, and that is what is used/checked by WSK if a Window with the specified name can not be found.

Works like a charm now.

Nice program.  smiley
Thanks smiley
As usual, donations are welcome embarassed (not mandatory)
517  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: WinSendKeys (Automate Task Scheduler) on: November 10, 2012, 04:49:35 AM
I think you also need to provide the name for the schtasks window that's active during the execution/wait for enter. It now is assuming it has to wait for a window called {ENTER}, and that's quite unlikely to exist. You may need a Window Spy tool or Process Explorer to find the exact name of the window/process while it is waiting for input.

Edit: Changing the -x parameter to -x schtasks.exe may be enough, but I have not enough test-data to try that out. Adding schtasks.exe before {ENTER} should fix it, AFAICS,
518  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: WinSendKeys (Automate Task Scheduler) on: November 10, 2012, 02:59:29 AM
This is where the usual escape sequence for quotes is needed: Double the quotes

so I tried:
WinSendKeys.exe -d -xp "/create /xml ""X:\task.xml"" /ru ""COMPUTER NAME\USER NAME"" /tn ""Imported Task""" ?

and got in the log:
2012-11-10 09:55:34.931, Debug logging enabled
2012-11-10 09:55:34.932, Executable Parameters specified: /create /xml "X:\task.xml" /ru "COMPUTER NAME\USER NAME" /tn "Imported Task"
2012-11-10 09:55:34.932, Window: ?
2012-11-10 09:55:34.934, Windowhandle: 0
2012-11-10 09:55:34.934, Window '?' not found.


No special handling required I guess cheesy

so I'm really not sure what niche this tool serves..
Do you need it to be a niche? If it would integrate with SSC, that's a niche in it's own right! Kiss

My goal of keeping options to a minimum was an utter failure as those here who know me predicted:
Grin

And a name with 'Simple' in it is now also untrue Grin
but 'Easy' is still possible thumbs up

Tao, we talked in PM around March/April, so you'd be able to read it back there Wink

Beta going up tonight (thursday 11/8/12).  thumbs up
Yay Thmbsup

I have one idea that's a bit too far for a Coding Snack but it could work as a Coding Lunch with I think some partial commissioned code already
I think we discussed it then, and couldn't get to an agreement/understanding of what, how and when. But maybe it was just me, being confused ohmy

Writing this thread I was thinking of just a general idea of a tool/app/solution to be coded, but eventually I found me a subject and pledged with that already cheesy

But I'd be able to pick up a snack-size target if you have one Cool
524  DonationCoder.com Software / Easy Screencast Recorder / Re: Easy Screencast Recorder - NANY 2013 Entry on: November 08, 2012, 06:55:38 AM
Or what about:
"Easy Screencast Recorder"

That's my current favorite.
Then I'd go for the Full Monty: "Mouser's Easy Screencast Recorder" Thmbsup
525  DonationCoder.com Software / Easy Screencast Recorder / Re: Easy Screencast Recorder - NANY 2013 Entry on: November 08, 2012, 05:49:14 AM
What do you think about "Simple Screencaster"?
+1

But, won't that inhibit you from making it less simple in the future Cool
