Aurionix FileUsage Tool gave these size and usage measurements:

[attachimg=#]

The Aurionix folder itself is 739 KB which still is pretty small, I think
and Aurionix works better than the other two of the kind I have tested.

55o ?!! Celcius or Fahrenheit?

Edit: I realize 55o Fahrenheit is merely 13o Celcius, so I take it of course is Celcius
- so forget my silly question - I could have checked before showing my ignorance  embarassed
- it is just that after 6 hours my CPU is 43o, so I thought 55o was a lot!

I really wish my English was a hundred times better. You guys are ruining my mood this evening. I gave you a hint: I have been a hifiholic for thirty years, not merely an audiofile; I have studied this subject. First In First Out (FIFO) is *NOT* to be taken literally! FIFO is First In ALMOST First Out - the teqnique brings distortion, and distortion is not "perfect". I gladly admit that FIFO was a major step forward, in bringing the distortion down - today the distortion via FIFO is close to be measured in less than a nano second - but to talk about digital perfectness is not trustworthy; even a nano second is too late = distortion.

There isn't a way to send a link that auto opens on another computer. ... Someone at the other computer has to open the link, or not. ... If you find a way to do it, please let me know ...

I really must learn to explain myself a lot better in Dangli.. ehh.. English.

This is a constant topic among audiophiles...

Your contra-arguments have been used ever since the CD was first launched, and still they improve the digital media. How can they keep improving something that is "perfect"? Because it is not perfect, I would say.

...
 I really don't care if you can measure the difference in digital audio cables or not. The difference is there

- but you may keep your attitude on this, and I will keep mine.


... For thirty years I was a hifiholic. I already have had this 'debate' too often. 

Other than this, I am glad sound quality has improved even more.

The very idea is strange to me; I can not understand why this feature is being wanted. Whenever I am in (similar?) situation I will simply mail the link to my address. My e-mail client is placed in Start, so I will start every session by checking e-mails and their links.

But of course, I you guys really can write such a thingy, it would be cool, I guess.

Nomad.NET is the successor of Nomad, a powerful file manager written by me a couple of years ago. It is completely rewritten (no single line of code was taken from previous Nomad) using best ideas and algorithms and implementing everything in a completely new way.

Current project state is Beta 1, with almost all features from original Nomad implemented in a new way, more powerful and simple. Many new features were introduced too. Some features that I had not used in previous Nomad were dropped (for example custom toolbars support, and toolbars at all).

New Nomad was developed with multi threading in mind, so almost all long operations can take advantage of multi-core cpu (comparing, copying, searching, detecting archive format and so on - too many to list them all here).

I do not want to create all-in-one mega monster that plays mp3, shows movies, etc, as many other file managers do. My goal is to build only good file manager functionality. For other purposes there are dedicated programs that always do things better than such jack-of-all-trades programs.


Features:
As for features of original Nomad, you can take a look at them on appropriate page. Here I describe the features that are significantly changed or just are new:

One of the most powerful search engines on market (if I can say market, project is freeware). You can create very complex search rules, with ability to search in different encoding (complete encodings auto detect), use IFilter filters, apply custom text search rules (including regular expressions), search in hex, duplicates search and so on... For novices there is a simplified search that is not so scary at first sight.

Powerful filtering system, based on the same core as search. You can use dedicated advanced filter dialog, or use simple toolstrip for quick filtering.

Folder shortcuts were implemented in much more simple way than its predecessor.

Much simpler, elegant and polished UI (program must look nice, right?) with support of themes, different toolstrip renderers and so on...

Program layout was changed, too. You can use single panel or dual panel mode (horizontal or vertical). Each panel can have its own tree view that can be hidden or displayed horizontally or vertically.
UI can simple scale according to your current system DPI settings, or manually (through Options).

New breadcrumb folder toolstrip on every panel is much more powerful than simple folder name.
Internal support for more archive types (using 7-Zip libraries). Program can also handle WCX Total Commander plug-in, even in more powerful way than Total Commander did. Currently only extracting is supported, no ability to create or modify them.

FTP folders support added (with limitations yet, for example, only one http proxy allowed with no UI to configure).

Many things were done more correctly - drag'n'drop from explorer, clipboard handling, shell file menus and so on.

Support for shell shortcuts, url shortcuts (ftp only) and even shell folder shortcuts (rarely supported in other file managers).

As you can see, the main idea of new Nomad.NET is to do the same things in more correct and beautiful way.

Roadmap:
I have no accurate roadmap as soon as the project is being made at my free time (and takes practically all this time). Current version is Beta 1 and right now it is very stable and have almost all planed features for the first version.

Features planned for future versions (you can email me if you have any good ideas):

Ability to create new archives for primary formats 7-Zip, Zip, Tar. Wcx packing plug-ins support.
Better FTP folders handling (support for more server types and proxies). Maybe secure FTP support.
Support for custom item properties (EXIF, IDv2, meta tags, etc). Display such properties and search in them.

Basic image preview and maybe thumbnail mode.

Help (very low priority, I have neither time, nor desire to do this). It is not a big deal for advanced users. As for novice ones, the application has a lot of hints and infotips with feature descriptions.
Features already implemented:

External tools feature (ability to call other programs from Nomad.NET with various command line arguments).

Language translation (at this moment Russian and Belarusian translations exist)


My copy was installed two hours ago and is yet without any plugins:

... There is zero measurable difference in the digital signal quality between the $6 HDMI cable and the $60 monster HDMI cable...
[attachimg=#]

Without knowing your preferences in general I would guess that you are the kind of type that also claims there can be no spiritual world because it cannot be measured? I really don't care if you can measure the difference in digital audio cables or not. The difference is there, but you probably have something blocking your ears...  tongue

The beta offer is even more fantastic than I first realized:

Quote from: Dmitri from GiveAwayOfTheDay
#27

Everyone, please note that we are giving away three Evernote clients - for Windows, Mac, and Windows Mobile.
Also, you may want to take a look at Getting Started (http://www.evernote.com/s...ort/beta/getting_started/) and take a tour at http://www.evernote.com/about/beta/tour/.

... freewaregenius published a nice review...

Quote from: Freewaregenius
The verdict: even if you already use Picasa or another image management software you might want to try this. This program (a) is original and innovative, (b) introduces a very cool and interesting way to browse image collections, (c) allows for tagging image files using people and category tags, (d) allows for adding captions to images (e) stores metadata information in the image file itself, and (f) is free. Oh, and (g) is a definite Freewaregenius pick!

Sounds like you need some maintenance there Curt. My old clunker p3 with 750 something pc100 ran photosynth enough to check it out before I tried too much....

Maintenance.. yeah...
"New" must be the key word. Having read about Firefox 3, RAM, quad-core, and Vista pre-fetch, I am all ready to invest! (Not that FF 3 has much to do with Photosynth, but I am literally beginning to dream about SPEED!!)
4813  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: PhotoMesa: gratis zoomable image browser on: March 19, 2008, 06:40:07 PM

Hmm... My one year old PC was not modern enough to run Photosynth...  Sad
- so now I know at least one place where the makers of this low-price machine saved some money!


I'd like to see this done with .doc's.

There's a couple more freebies there too.

Yes, DateLens, for Pocket PC, and NoteLens, for Windows PCs

Quote from: NoteLens
NoteLens is a note-taking tool that is so fast, it lets you concentrate on your notes - not on the interface.  NoteLens is designed to help you stay in the flow. You never spend time deciding where to store notes, save them, or even give them names.  NoteLens takes care of that for you.  With a lightning fast full text indexing system, you can quickly find any note just by typing any word - all of the notes containing that word will be pulled up as you type.

NoteLens integrates with Microsoft Outlook.  You can import notes from Outlook, and then keep NoteLens and Outlook synced.  (Although you don't need Outlook to take advantage of NoteLens.) With Microsoft ActiveSync, your notes will be synced with your Microsoft Pocket PC.  NoteLens even syncs contacts and email, so you can have integrated super fast access to all of your critical information.  And you can rely on NoteLens with confidence, knowing that they are backed up in Outlook - and also stored in a simple text format so you'll never be locked in.

We have found that NoteLens quickly becomes an integral part of users' lives - always running on the desktop, and just a keystroke away from jotting an idea down, or pulling up yesterday's thoughts.


[attachthumb=#]


    * Extremely easy to use - notes are instantly accessible

4816  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / PhotoMesa: gratis zoomable image browser on: March 17, 2008, 06:24:33 PM
I have never heard of this before today, but PhotoMesa 3 is a free (any donations per PayPal), zoom-able, image browser from Windsor Interfaces. There are a lot of capable image browsers out there, but with PhotoMesa 3 Windsor is trying to find a niche, and I think they are doing a fine job. They are not competing on number of advanced features, but on broad but easy usability, and speed. For an example: left-click is zoom in, right-click is zoom out. This feature can even be licensed for coders' .NET applications. PhotoMesa 3 requires .NET 1.1 or 2.0.

After-edited: They are also competing on annotating features.  thumbs up

Demo link for Windows Media Player:

[attachimg=1]

(- the "photomesa.com" address in the video is from when photomesa was shareware.
And the image quality is of course fine, and not terrible as the video make it seems to be.)


There are several ways to have it display your images
- this thumb is merely my way of showing 2975 pictures at the same time...

[attachthumb=2]

- this view of course has mouse-over preview / popup / tooltips


Or another view ("scroll"):

[attachthumb=3]



One problem I didn't understand at first is that you may need to remember to uncheck which folders to display before you close PhotoMesa if the folder was very big, because next time PhotoMesa will open with those pictures loaded, which in this situation of course will make it load very slowly. On the other hand this can be a major time saver in a different situation.

Another rare feature is that PhotoMesa has default option to merely show representative photos if your collection is larger than 500 pictures. You can of course change this number, or simply disable the feature.

Best thing: PowerDesk is a very good File Manager,

- must be, because it is never updated...  tongue

Do you really expect there will be a version 7 ??  undecided

Anyway, even if it was updated or even upgraded I would only get any new version if it was absolutely gratis. I have purchased three programs via Avanquest (Vcom is part of Avanquest), and not one of them has ever been updated, or if they were updated, I was somehow never entitled to the new version. I cannot and will not recommend Avanquest!

PowerDesk ..... can be had for the princely sum of $9.95

Avanquest:

Well, in all fairness, it actually may be new - I don't know
- it may even be reguarly updated for those who purchased it at full price - right?

Many restarts later...:

Something is not all right, because I have not yet been able to make the script work.

Later on I also right-clicked the CloseToQuit.ahk > Compile Script, but when I db'clicked the new exe it said 'exe corrupted'. So something is wrong.

I better ask if this was the right formula: apps=firefox.exe
- no commas, brackets, or anything?

I have no idea what such a script should tell, but I am surprised that logonui.exe not is mentioned in the script, because I can see in my taskmanager that logonui is the one handling the XP shutdown. Please forgive me for even saying so.

Thanks, AndyM, but restoring sessions can sometimes be important to me, so I don't think I would want to un-check this option. I would rather go for the script nosh is talking about. Only, I have idea how to do something like that myself (and I will not purchase $15 Xecutor) - but I do have AutoHotkey installed.

- So I am still requesting some help on this idea, please.

Warning - while you were typing a new reply has been posted.

... studying skrommel's answer...

Syntax:  apps=[<process name>,<class>,<part of a caption>]
Example: apps=calc.exe,MozillaWindowClass,- Notepad

Hmm... I got confused because of the example's content. In my case I expect the program's name must be firefox.exe , but should I also type MozillaWindowClass? And what about the third info, 'part of a caption' - what is that in this connection with firefox? Forgive me for asking such childish questions, but I really mean this thing under Homer van Gogh about me being an IT-analphabetic...

Will someone please  [attachimg=#] make the example talk about Firefox only?  tellme

Other than me knowing nothing I am most grateful for skrommel offering a solution, and for responding so fast.  thumbs up

4825  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / DONE: Gracefully close Firefox on PC exit on: March 15, 2008, 07:11:52 AM
I will almost "always" forget to close Firefox before I close my XP, so at the next boot it will ask if I want to restore session or not. I find this annoying, because I have Firefox placed in Start > Minimized   for the very reason that I do not want to see it before I need to use it.


IDEA: an app' that will use every XP shutdown / reboot to...
- immediately but gracefully auto-close any Firefox before it is terminated by force!

Please?  tellme

I use various programs to shut down XP.

Edited:
Windows will in general close most of the programs in the very same order in which they were started, and because my starting point of Firefox is delayed, so the closing of Firefox will also be delayed, giving enough time for some spy to react and gently close the fox - I would guess.
