I think its a good idea to create a partition for your XP - if you have the needed free space.

... the advantage of the live preview is that you can figure it out and get it wrong 12 times in 20 seconds and still not have lost too much time.

Very reassuring feature!

It's very similar in flexrename  Cool

Thanks, iphigenie (and PhilB66). The FlexRename's GUI is not as overwhelming as the Bulk thing's, but I might choke on the regular expressions, despite all the presets.

Another question: can the same be done with "_" and "-_-" (music files)??

I'm not sure, Curt. As noted, I've uninstalled Neodownloader so am not in a position to look into it for you, sorry!

Ohh, sorry for being unclear again - I meant, can it be done in the Bulk Renamer Util ?

@ Veign: Is is too much to already hope for a future DLL for Windows, giving a context menu with all the options pre-listed (with direct links) - and option to auto-download to the same folder with the file renamed (original name + the new size as suffix)?
5308  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: IrfanPaint - a painting plug-in for IrfanView on: September 12, 2007, 10:52:47 AM
With so many drawing features being incorporated in screenshot makers and their integrated editors, I find it unlikely that the IrfanView paint plugin will compete anytime soon. In fact, I never open my IrfanView anymore. I am only keeping it because I quite often will use the BAxBEx DLL plugin for IrfanView - this is by far the fastest way I have found, to convert a picture. Today other apps are offering the same feaure, but none with so many formats as the BAxBEx + IrfanView combination.

The BAxBEx plugin, IrfanView ShellExtension (scroll all down), has not been updated since 2001, but I have found no need to. It works well.

Ohh, it was not "20%", but %20 - well, anyway:


[attachimg=#]

- both are fine solutions. Thank you!

... it might be an option in Neodownloader - ..

This is right where it would prefer it to be! Very often people forget to rename their pics before uploading, so when we download them they have this annoying %20 in their names. It would be so good if some picture-downloader could auto-replace any "%20" in the saving process. You are most welcome to report back on the subject, Darwin!

Another question: can the same be done with "_" and "-_-" (music files)??

Forgive me for asking a question just a little off topic:

Are there any Renamer that will auto-replace "20%" with a single (blank) space?


-

- or could a "Replace20%" be a new DC coding snack / meal??

Yes; the first upload (which didn't show up) was empty, so I thought that just MAYBE it was because I didn't write anything inside the file - so I wrote "50" in the first box (because "today" (Saturday) was my 50' birthday) hoping it would trigger it to act as any other file. I have no idea as to WHY it doesn't behave as a file (in your Textmaker), except that this is really not a file but a folder ("mappe" translates "folder"). But what really is going on, I don't know!
5312  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Today's GiveAway is the fastest photo resizer I have tried on: September 08, 2007, 05:20:38 AM
Here's a freeware image resizer that I just discovered: http://www.vso-software.fr/products/image_resizer/

Yeah, I tried that one too, but the "integration in the context menu" is merely for the stand alone program to load. It is not truly integrated, so to speak.

Seems we are not allowed to attach XLS files, so I have zipped and attached an (Edit: almost) empty one here, made with my (Danish) Excel 2003:

(no xls!)

Hmmm; where did it go? The 1'st zip was empty!

I will try again a little later. Sorry for taking up your time!

Now is later: [attachurl=#]

Funny, how a little piece of information can dramatically change your point of view!

For so many years I have seen small files with the alexa name in my Temp folder, and it made me think that alexa sure must be something evil, because I have never even once in my life visited any site that had the name alexa, so how in the world did they end up in my temp folder? No, they sure had to be something evil!

You have changed my point of view, scancode!!   thumbs up

Sorry, Dirhael, for publishing your private info. I wasn't thinking too clearly, was I. You revealed your name when you uploaded a screenshot recently, and I remember thinking "with this name he can only be a Norwegian!"  Wink  But I couldn't remember right away in which thread the picture was to be found, so I didn't check up on the proper spelling - sorry again!

-

I have Spyware Terminator running all the time, and I do remember answering  Yes  to the question, to which I now know, I should have answered  No.

For 40 days I was trialing Total Uninstall, but if you install some new programs each day, you - no, not "you" but "me / myself / I", I really get tired of "wasting" all that amount of time - Total Uninstall really is a slow way to keep the PC safe. Anyway, the point being that I didn't purchase a license. But then there are moments, as today, when I regret I did not keep it.
5317  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Help needed (again): Miro "destroyed" all my videos! on: September 06, 2007, 12:44:26 PM
Curt: you mean it changed the extension of the file from .avi to .miro.1??

No, jgpaiva, that was the strange point. The extension was right, but the description was wrong. In the Explorer column "type", any divx video is listed as a "divx video file". Any avi file should be listed "avi file", but was described as a miro.1 type.

But who cares, now, the problem has been solved.

Hmmm. This may very well all have been because my XP is unstable, but steeladept came the closest without being near:

Quote
open Explorer .. and .. go to Tools>Folder Options>File Types and browse down to your file extension (.avi for example). .. click on the file extention and in the box below, click on the "Change" button by "Opens With:" .. Now just browse to the application executable that you want to open that file type with and it is associated.

- because, I did all that, which steeladept said, only: it didn't help! But then I clicked Reset, and wow!! All file types were changed back to the right types again!

Edit: it would have been a problem if I didn't first changed some file type, because then there would have been no "reset" button! So I actually had to do it this "wrong" way, in order to be able to do it the right way! Now that doesn't sound too sane, does it.

The correct answer may be unknown, but the problem is solved, so who cares!

Thanks a lot, all of you!
5320  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Help needed (again): Miro "destroyed" all my videos! on: September 06, 2007, 11:57:29 AM
Oh, how I wish I could address you all in Danish!

1) The problem is not the file associations, the problem is the file types.

I can right-click any video file and say "always open with KMP", and KMPLayer will open it and play it well, but that will not change the "perceived" file type; it will still be wrong (miro.1),
-  and the file will still just open Notebook when double-clicked.

I cannot use the answer from "Janet at PCF".

2) I am so far very much afraid that I will have to look further into the answers from Dirhael and steeladept, but I don't like it - "KISS" (Keep It Simple, Stupid), was invented for people like me!

But thanks anyway, all of you.

We missed Dirhael's number 100, but because I am very fond of trible figures I have taken a shot of his number 111 (which was an answer to me):

Enough talking, reading and writing, now it was time to listen to some good music - and I couldn't!  Sad

Yesterday I installed the new version of Miro, but it wouldn't open, so I removed it again, and went to sleep. Today I have come to realize that every common video type has been changed into miro.1, and I am utterly unable to open my 20 GB music videos!! - except for the DivX types. Ohh, am I frustrated right now!

Double-clicking will only open Notebook. Before trying something wild, which could make things even worse, I thought I would come here and ask you what to do. What do you think I should do - except for banging some heads at the Participatory Culture Foundation, the makers of Miro - ? Their FAQ and troubleshooting pages don't tell about this problem. Membership application for the Miro forum seems to be handled manually? I don't know, but I have not yet recieved any clearence. Miro has no dedicated support office, only some "feedback(at)pculture.org".

.. you come across as someone young at heart  smiley

I wil take it as a compliment: Thank you, Darwin,....I think.  Cool

Yes, come Saturday will do something to me. I don't spend much time thinking about my age, but it has been a mind teaser for me to be the one who is supposed to arrange a family reunion! I am the youngest of six, and the only one not married or with any children, so for so many years I have been used to be the one who is being invited, not the one who is inviting...

Curt - in case I miss it - Happy Birthday!

Thank you, Darwin! Actual (sorry!), I am a little afraid I might miss it myself...

Just to clarify: I really do think Actual Tools are over-priced. The bundled ($60) should be $20 !
5324  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Change title bar name (in any application) on: September 05, 2007, 06:39:39 PM
Well, young Curt,

Are you kidding me?

- or kindly referring to my half-a-century birthday the day after tomorrow?  cheesy

I like the Actual Tools, but they are way over-priced. Even with a 20% cut down.
- and most if not all the other features, I already have.
5325  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Change title bar name (in any application) on: September 05, 2007, 06:09:17 PM
Nifty! justice did a fine job with this.

But I really want a permanent change of certain title bar names.
Are there any free or cheap ones to do this (to me, $20 or 30 is nowhere cheap for this one feature)?

 tellme

(Edit: TrialPay is not an option I will want to consider.)
Edit2: I cannot see any that Actual Tools should be offering this feature - temporary or permanent. Is it just me who can't read?

Edit3: Ohh, it is called "Change window caption"
- and is $30 !!  thumb down
