1  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Looking for program that can copy folder hierarchy with checkboxes and size est. on: February 28, 2015, 10:49:20 PM
EDIT: see if anyone else chimes in here - this is not working for me on Windows 8.1 -
I am not getting asked if I want to recreate the hierarchy.

Works fine:

[attach=1]

Do note that while you can turn on Calculate folder sizes, it'll only do it for the parent, any sub-folders don't get calculated and aren't added to the running total in the Status bar, (as you can see from the bits I've highlighted - a folder with ~36MB of files but only ~10MB in the running total).

I don't know if there is a setting that will propagate the folder selection to included files, this would fix the total size selected discrepancy.

Seems to be a little faster in browsing, (subjective naturally) ... I'll use it just because it fires up faster than Firefox.

Moonchild Productions now has AdBlock Latitude - a replacement for AdBlock+ and AdBlock Edge that works with the Pale Moon browser.

Quote
About this extension

Adblock Latitude is a direct fork of Adblock Plus made specifically for the Pale Moon browser.

Adblock Latitude is designed to be a drop in replacement for ABP and will utilize all your exsisting settings. However, ABL is more than that. It intends to also replace Adblock Edge by removing the hard coded Acceptable Ads feature.

Adblock Latitude can be installed over the previously available Pseudo-Static version of Adblock Plus but you will have to uninstall the Pseudo-Static of Adblock Edge as these will conflict as will the orginal versions of ABP and ABE. Likewise, if you were an ABE user you will have to setup ABL to your previous settings.

Compatibility

Adblock Latitude version 3.0.2 works with Pale Moon 25.*

Though I usually used close range weapons, the sniper rifles make it far too easy - but the .50 certainly makes short work of the large critters.  Grin

Are you sure you're not using the old sync?  In the new one, effectively everything is a merge unless you delete the online db.  

My bad, Pale Moon still has the option Firefox doesn't - shows you how often I use Firefox  embarassed
I run my own sync server but don't use it any more since I only use Firefox based browsers on Windows based computers, it's a lot more efficient to just replace the contents of the profile with the one I want.

@4wd: in the list Firefox (Pale Moon) Extensions used by @4wd (your FF PaleMoon extensions), you have Greasemonkey v1.15.
Is there any reason you have not updated to v2.3?

Most likely because I'm lazy and don't go looking for updates, and the add-on doesn't auto-update.  Plus it works with the scripts I'm using so there's never been a reason to update it.

I was going to do a quick check in AutoIt as it has some MouseEvent UDFs that let you hook into what the mouse is doing but unfortunately other things are currently getting in the way of doing anything useful  undecided

Next week I should be able to see if it can be done in AutoIt.

At the risk of duplication I thought it might be useful to cross-post this recent, and rather relevant and informative comment from @4wd:
(Thanks @4wd - there are some extensions there that look quite handy and that I don't think I have tried out yet, so I shall get busy.)

Your welcome, though quite a few came from mentions elsewhere in the forum.

I should point out that Lightbeam is rendered pretty much useless by my browser settings and other add-ons, ie.
Options -> No third party cookies
Options -> All cookies session only (which is actually pointless due to setting below)
about:config -> browser.cache.disk.enable = false
about:config -> browser.cache.disk.capacity = 0
RefControl
RequestPolicy

Means that Lightbeam almost always displays a series of disconnected sites.

I think it should work more like the SyncPlaces FF AddOn where you could send and receive with overwrite.

In Firefox, Pale Moon, (and probably other Mozilla based versions), just select Sync Options when you're Creating/Linking and you can change what happens:

[attach=1]

So you can effectively have one master browser and all other iterations are slaves.

Or do you mean you only want to update some of your Firefox based browsers when you want rather than have them synchronised?

You probably could use a GeoIP module for Apache and then grab the free MaxMind GeoLite Country database, or you can get a more accurate version of the database for $50, GeoIP2 Country.

As for a GeoIP module for Apache, (on Windows I'm guessing), I think I'll leave that bit to someone with more brain cells than me  cheesy

Warning: This is a very violent game series -- one thing that sucks is that you have to hunt animals in the game.

As it was in Far Cry 3 - this is fine and I have no problem with it, (being a hunter myself), because you use what you kill.  Even if you only need the skin, you collect bait which can be used against the opposition.

Be nicer if they'd had some form of energy depletion and you sit down and roast your kill to gain energy, (of course you'd probably attract unwanted bears, tigers, etc smiley ).

I think that instead of highlighting a point on the map saying "Go there, do this", they could have said "Go find this place, do this" leaving enough references, (sign posts, a compass heading, talk to locals you see, etc), that you could determine where you're supposed to go.  Then, maybe, when you're within ~100m you get a location on the map or some other form of alert.
Being shown where you need to be from the start makes it far to linear, mind you, you can take your time getting there usually.  So you can have a blast running things over or dropping 40mm rounds from a buzzer  Grin

Not a bad game, (like Far Cry 3 and 2), but once I got a reasonably quiet weapon it became rather easy.

I thought about looking that up as I'd forgotten the site, but just got lazy. Thanks for posting it!  Thmbsup

Thought about setting up a node at one point since I'm in a geographically advantageous position, (line of sight to most of the north-eastern suburbs) ... but then I got lazy  Grin

Besides the program warning me if the complicated website fails.

Zip up the .url file and attach it so I can see what codepage will work.  Otherwise rename it.

Beamer for everyday use. Price is a bit steep, but it is a novel idea.

Not to mention the geo-limited delivery areas.

23  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: remote control of pc via android phone on: February 21, 2015, 01:05:57 PM
From Windows 8 on, there is no Home version - it's Standard (Consumer) or Professional and higher.

So you can't run RDP which leaves you with the other suggestions or VNC.

Your first problem is finding out whether your laptop supports WoL - use the links SJ gave.
24  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: remote control of pc via android phone on: February 21, 2015, 06:20:47 AM
Right-click This PC, select Properties - it'll say Windows 8.1 Pro on the second line if it's the Professional version.

You need to check your BIOS to see if your laptop supports WoL.

To Install:
1) Extract
2) Copy folder to C:\
3) Double-click OpenURLs_Install.reg and answer Yes/OK for following requesters

It'll open any .url file in the folder with your default browser, one URL every three seconds.

To Remove:
1) Double-click OpenURLs_Remove.reg and answer Yes/OK for following requesters
2) Delete folder (unless you have something else in there, in which case don't)

Updated: Add to Folder background context menu
             Change codepage to 28591, (ISO 8859-1 Latin 1; Western European (ISO))
Updated: Change codepage to 1252, (ANSI)
