Omg, I just set the "Recurse" checkbox.... and now works PERFECTLY.... I don't know if someone is seeing this still, but BSM works great!

I'm still here, so does that mean it's working OK for you now?

The error you got previously seems to indicate a problem, I'll have a look at it in a few weeks when I'm back in-country, (OS ATM).

You can use cmdow with the /HID parameter to run it without the CLI appearing.

I'll have a look at it but I'm currently overseas with just a netbook so don't expect anything too soon.

However... what do people ALWAYS have with them?

  • Watch
  • Mobile phone (it's got a clock)
  • Wallet/purse (not relevant here, but true) (I've got pockets)

Problem solved  smiley

But for "problem solved", no. The problem is far from solved. The issue there is form factor and battery life.

There, fixed my OP so it makes sense - there's no problem for me because I don't use a watch or a wallet.

I can see people driving with this thing now.  One arm across the steering wheel so they can touch/tap with the other hand while cornering.  Ay Yi Yi.

And this is different from them currently staring at their lap while sending an SMS in what way?

Android Watch Phone

I think your main problem with something like that is going to be finding a battery that lasts long enough for it to be useful.

Thanks! I'm not sure why I didn't think to just go to an older version of uTorrent! I've done that and things seem to be working fine. The only thing I miss is being able to access it using uTorrent Remote on my Android devices (or on the web).

Attached is the last stable version of webui.zip that worked with 1.82, it also includes the last stable version of miniui that worked with 1.82 - just copy it to the uTorrent directory and enable WebUI in the options.

Normal interface: http://<ip>:<port>/gui/index.html
Mini interface: http://<ip>:<port>/gui/mini/index.html

Mini is for small display device access, eg. phones.

A couple of things in the UI won't work, they need a higher version of uTorrent, (eg. up/down arrows for reordering torrents).

Stick a user/password in the options when you enable it, you can also use the http://<user>:<password>@<ip>:<port>/... format to access.

I use it because I don't want to go through a 3rd party site for any access to my computers.

^ +1 - I use uTorrent 1.82

FWIW, this is a list of the clients that a private tracker I'm on allows, anything else is at risk of being banned:


Reason most fail to be listed is that they do something wrong, eg. incorrect ratios reported, choking clients unnecessarily, etc.

119  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: A warning to anybody who is looking to purchase a VPS. on: September 10, 2014, 02:39:15 PM
Low end VPS is a real buyer beware situation.

But the deals from reputable providers are too good to pass up sometimes  Grin

eg.
OpenVZ
50GB space
512MB + 512MB
3 virtual cores
1Gbps
2TB / month traffic

for $15/year, was absolutely excellent at the time I was looking and the provider has been very good.

One thing about using the filesystemwatcher to be aware of is that it loses connection to the watched folder after having been up for a while- most especially on network or mapped folders- and that's a known limitation.

Oh well, it's been an exercise in Powershell smiley

Completed version, probably some redundant code, requires .NET 4.5 due to one of the procedures, IIRC.

Anyway, it works here OK creating shortcuts to folders and sub-folders in 'My Documents' on the 'Desktop'.

One caveat, I'm not checking for the prior existence of a shortcut the same name.  So if someone creates a folder called 'test' followed by a sub-folder called 'test', the create shortcut command will most likely fail.

You should be able to accomplish this with Powershell using the following information:

Powershell FileSystemWatcher
Create Shortcuts using Powershell

Seems rather straightforward.

Modified the first Powershell script to monitor Folder Creation only, atm just outputs to logfile and Powershell interface:

  16.  
  17. Register-ObjectEvent $fsw Created -SourceIdentifier FileCreated -Action {
  18. $name = $Event.SourceEventArgs.Name
  19. $changeType = $Event.SourceEventArgs.ChangeType
  20. $timeStamp = $Event.TimeGenerated
  21. Write-Host "The folder '$name' was $changeType at $timeStamp" -fore green
  22. Out-File -FilePath d:\outlog.txt -Append -InputObject "The file '$name' was $changeType at $timeStamp"}
  23.  
  24. # To stop the monitoring, run the following command:
  25. # Unregister-Event FileCreated

I'll try and add in the shortcut bit now.

Numbered, (x of 31), signed, and custom-designed by various graphically orientated people here at DC, (count me out  cheesy ), to be given away as the results of many/one competition(s) - the coveted number 1 being the big prize, (and possibly the biggest mug).

FWIW, all the VPS' I've got atm, (only 4 - but they're addictive), I got through deals via Low End Box.

Low End Talk, their sister site, is a good place to do any research on a provider, eg. FortaTrust

I'm currently in the UK and I hit a paywall no matter which link I use.  This happens in both K-Meleon and IE.

In IE however, using the Google redirector I can see the whole article for a couple of seconds before the paywall feature kicks in.

Same thing in Cyberfox, see the whole article for a couple of seconds then the paywall happens.
