101  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: Change (sub) folder(s) date based on newest/oldest file in the folder on: June 12, 2015, 11:24:18 PM
A lof of folders (maybe 80% of the 180) went fine and got the folderdates based on newest date in file.
My workaround is to go down the folders and then run the adjust timestamp on sub folders (or sub-sub folders).
SOmetimes it also works to run it a number of times, 3-4-5x
Each time I have to
select folder
click button
exec all

So, what I think you're trying to say is that the reason the folders didn't get adjusted was because they had no files within them?

Why don't you turn Recurse on?

You're going to have to zip up your folder/file structure and send it to me since I can't look at it without something to work on.  Use skwire's Zero Zipper or since you have DOpus you can use my method.

What if you show the Process Memory->Virtual Size column in Process Explorer?

eg.

Actually, while that figure for Dragon seemed reasonable, some of the figures reported by other processes are a bit large.

Apparently there was some confusion about who the last update was aimed at:

Quote
There seems to be some confusion from our last update. This is just to clarify that we have not yet shipped out any production quality Matchstick units. The last update regarding ad hoc mode enhancement was mainly intended for those who had purchased and received the Matchstick developer units end of last year. Since ad hoc mode and local play were promised as our Kickstarter stretch goals, we thought it would be helpful to let folks know our progress in meeting our commitment to deliver on our stretch goals. 

We are continuing our product development effort. Stay tuned for more announcement !

Considering that the only difference between Standard and Professional in the previous version was four dictionaries and an email client, (which is now essentially a free program included in the suite), you have to wonder how crippled a Standard version will be that would make the creation of it viable.

if %%~zF==".tmp" echo DEL /F /Q "%%F">> tempfilesremover.bat

Should be %%~xF   Wink


ScaryCmdFile.cmd:
Formatted for Text with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. @echo off
  2. rem ScaryCmdFile.cmd <path>
  3. rem
  4. rem eg. ScaryCmdFile.cmd U:\silly\files
  5.  
  6. rem Extensions to eliminate besides 0 byte files, just add them to the line below separated by a
  7. rem semi-colon
  8. rem LINE HAS TO END WITH SEMI-COLON
  9. set ext=.tmp;.exe;.com;.bak;
  10.  
  11. for /r "%~1" %%F in (*) do (
  12.  if %%~zF==0 echo DEL /F /Q "%%F">> zerobytefilesremover.bat
  13.  echo.%ext% | findstr /C:"%%~xF;">nul && echo del /f /q "%%F">> naughtyextensionfileremover.bat
  14.  )

Doesn't do the hidden temporary Word files naturally but that should just be a matter of dir /b /s /a+h "~*.*" > TempWordFiles.txt to get a list.

You could also turn ScaryCmdFile.cmd into SaveOurFiles.cmd by just specifying what extensions you want to keep and changing the last del /f /q to xcopy/robocopy/etc.

eg.

SaveOurFiles.cmd:
Formatted for Text with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. @echo off
  2. rem SaveOurFiles.cmd <path>
  3. rem
  4. rem eg. SaveOurFiles.cmd U:\silly\files
  5.  
  6. rem Extensions to keep, just add them to the line below separated by a semi-colon
  7. rem Still removes 0 byte files
  8. rem LINE HAS TO END WITH SEMI-COLON
  9. set ext=.doc;.jpg;.xls;
  10.  
  11. for /r "%~1" %%F in (*) do (
  12.  if %%~zF==0 echo DEL /F /Q "%%F">> zerobytefilesremover.bat
  13.  echo.%ext% | findstr /C:"%%~xF;">nul && echo xcopy "%%F" c:\savedfiles\ >> filessavedfromextinction.bat
  14.  )

NOTE: I've only tested the ScaryCmdFile.cmd.

Another word to the wise, don't start the holy war between the use of spaces or tabs for indentation back up...  cheesy

TABs?!  We don't need no steenkin' TABs!!
107  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Dumb question but maybe somebody knows how. Probably a form of Sync. on: June 08, 2015, 06:40:28 PM
I would have thought that the type of files you want to keep would be a much shorter list than the type of files you want to remove.

But if you want to check on file extension just use that for the comparison instead of file size, eg.

"%%~xF"==".tmp"

IIRC, the ~ Word files all have an extension of .tmp so will be picked up using extension comparison providing you've also searched for hidden files.
108  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Anyone Using SlimBrowser? on: June 04, 2015, 08:06:28 PM
I had SlimBrowser installed for a while on my netbook because it's rather limited memory-wise (1.5GB) but found SlimBrowser too simplistic when compared to K-Meleon that I still use the latter and uninstalled the former.

DEL /F /Q “C:\Users\ASA4\Desktop\DEC 16th 23 sync users somebody not there yet.txt”

Look at the quote marks.

It'll look the same as normal quote marks at the DOS prompt but it won't work, the following will:

DEL /F /Q "C:\Users\ASA4\Desktop\DEC 16th 23 sync users somebody not there yet.txt"

To illustrate:

Command file - top line is taken from posts above, third line replaced the quote marks with normal ones off the keyboard using Notepad2 (which makes the difference more obvious):
[attach=1]

Result:
[attach=2]

The angled quote marks are usually caused by a word processor, with a basic text editor they always look like a pair of vertical parallel lines.


Fixed command file without the funny quote marks:

111  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / FossaMail - brought to you by the makers of Pale Moon on: June 03, 2015, 09:21:49 PM
Yes, I'm about to kill off another project Innuendo  tongue

FossaMail is a Windows/Linux x86/x64 mail/news/chat client based on Thunderbird but using the optimised Pale Moon browser core.

FossaMail:

  • Is built from source with compiler optimizations geared towards an as stable and smooth operation of the client as possible (Pale Moon-alike optimizations).
  • Uses the Pale Moon browser core as its back-end. The client is therefore based on Pale Moon rather than other Mozilla-powered products.
  • Uses its own profile folder on your system. This means it will not interfere with existing Thunderbird installations.
  • The default profile location is %APPDATA%\FossaMail
  • Should be compatible with all Thunderbird (v24/25b era) add-ons and plugins.
  • Is available in 32-bit (x86) and 64-bit (x64) versions for both Windows and Linux.
  • Comes with an optional calendar/organizer add-on (Lightning, available from the download location below) that will allow it to be used in a Microsoft Outlook style information manager fashion.

System requirements:

  • Operating system either:
    • Windows Vista or above (Windows XP is not supported), OR
    • A recent Linux distribution (it will not run on particularly old kernel/libc combinations)
  • A processor with SSE2 support
  • Sufficient hard drive space to install and store your e-mail and other data
  • An internet connection ;-)
112  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: Softmaker Office: **90%+** Discount!!!! Offer Expires Feb5 6pm(?) EST on: June 03, 2015, 08:37:17 PM
I agree it feels a bit pricy -- I think I'll wait till they send out one of those ugprade specials for customers using older versions.

Same here, the current upgrade price of ~AU$77 is almost more than I paid for previous versions, (2008, 2010, 2012), combined.

Considering there seems to be only the Pro version now and they no longer use a purpose designed third-party email/calendar component, it seems a little steep for those of us who use the Standard version since we didn't need the added functionality of emClient/Thunderbird, (since I already have Thunderbird).
113  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / NTLite - Windows 7+ installation customisation on: June 02, 2015, 01:45:29 AM
NTLite was released to the public back in Sep, 2014, just in case anyone was interested.

What is it?

It's the Windows 7+ version of the very useful nlite (for XP) that you can use to customise your Windows installation media.

NTLite is available in both free and paid versions with the paid versions offering extras like Live-install Modification and Portable operation (if you go for the Business license).

Here is a list of the basic differences between free/licensed (Commercial license available under Professional/Business):

116  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: dream phone on: May 31, 2015, 07:31:42 PM
... but according to a mobile forum I asked, I need ONLY dual sim full active phones to do that

The only time a mobile/data connection is helpful but not necessary is for Assisted GPS (A-GPS) where the phone can download the latest GPS almanac (and/or utilise multilateration to provide it's location) which will decrease it's TTFF (Time To First Fix) by GPS from satellites.  ie. Instead of taking a cold start of 45 seconds to provide a GPS fix, it might take 20 seconds.

The almanac will be downloaded from the GPS satellites if it can't be obtained another way this is what a normal non-data connected GPS receiver does.

Phone location can also be approximated by other means, (WiFi, etc), but none of them are a requirement for GPS, as @Ath said.

Regarding Dual SIM, some phones use the MicroSD as the slot for the second SIM, you either have Dual SIM or expanded memory capacity, not both.

Then add in 4WD's cipher and...all the Old encrypts would be gone as well
Sad  As long as i don't end up wiping out the entire windows folder i should be OK Sad  Maybe?

Use PowerShell:
Formatted for Text with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. get-childitem r:\ -Recurse -Force -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue | Where-Object {$_.Attributes -ge "Encrypted"} | Remove-Item -whatIf

Change the r:\ to whatever path you require that isn't the Windows drive.

The -whatIf parameter on the end tells you what will happen if the command was to execute (Remove-Item) but it doesn't actually execute it.

Remove the -whatIf if you're happy about what will happen.

Sample output:
Formatted for Text with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. PS C:\> get-childitem r:\ -Recurse -Force -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue | Where-Object {$_.Attributes -ge "Encrypted"} | Remove-Item -whatIf
  2.  
  3. Confirm
  4. The item at Microsoft.PowerShell.Core\FileSystem::R:\test\encrypt has children and the Recurse parameter was not
  5. specified. If you continue, all children will be removed with the item. Are you sure you want to continue?

From what Contro said in his first post, he doesn't really want batch printing, he wants to print one document specifying page ranges so that each range ends up as a new PDF.

ie. 4 page ranges = 4 PDFs

He wants to do it in one operation, not printing the document 4 times specifying a different range each time.

It's easier to open the Tresorit window, delete the default tresor that was created when it was installed, and then right-click on a folder in Explorer and choose Create tresor.

[attach=1]

You're only allowed three tresors in the free version, (used to be five IIRC), and a maximum file size of 500MB.

From the Pale Moon forum re. Tracking Protection:
Quote
I see no reason to favor any particular privacy data blocking method over another in the core. People can choose what they want. If you want the same functionality baked into Firefox, then install the disconnect extension. If you prefer something else, then you can take your pick of others

I had a look at the SDK, it seemed to have info on how to add your own page to the preferences and provide functions for reading/writing your own config file but I'm not sure they could be used for accessing the Core.cfg file.

Someone else who knows what they're looking for needs to look at it, (mouser?).
