Really nice work, ak_!!  smiley


If one day you are going to work on this program again, then maybe you would consider to change two letters, the "f" and the first "n", to capital "F" and "N", please? The name of the program clearly is FileNanny (capital F and N), but the exe file is named filenanny.exe (f and n). So when I used FileNanny to tell filenanny to go to her room, she didn't went to FileNanny, but to filenanny.

- Sorry for making a short story long...

Fine program!  thumbs up

Freeware World Team - one of the lesser appreciated sites that reports on a volume of new small indie freeware tools that other sites should be envious of.  i wake up each morning hoping that they are still doing what they are doing - they actively go out and find new small freeware tools you won't hear about anywhere else.

I have not been able to reach all4you for 1½ day, and I have no idea, as to why.

Can you reach http://www.all4you.dk/FreewareWorld/ ??   tellme


- and if you can:
what may be wrong in my end of the line? -everything else is working as normal!

Very convincing, zw. I am almost sure I want this. Only, I shouldn't have to right-click the icon; the option's list should popup at mouse-over, I think.
5307  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / HyperSnap: impressive screen-capture app, today's Bits du Jour on: October 22, 2007, 01:50:45 AM
I like my FastStone Capture a lot, but I am really impressed by today's offer on Bits du Jour: HyperSnap 6 from Hyperionics. Today $17½, normal $35. ("today" being Monday 22' Oct)

I have just ordered Outlook project management from http://www.outlookproject.com/
...
This is something they email to you, ...

Interesting to hear if you ever receive this file! The site has not been updated for two years, and their forum has been closed for at least half a year. But the extension sure sounds ideal for the purpose in question.

... So "all" I have to do is, to have the New Program starting as the last program, and it will also be the last to close.

... no, not in the case of ClickOff. It turns out that ClickOff will not be placed in Start, but will move itself back -

Sometimes it is good to be wrong!  smiley

I shouldn't have tried to move ClickOff to Start. It turns out that merely adjusting the starting order, using Startup Delayer, was all it took. Now ClickOff is The Last to start, and, more important, The Last to close - meaning it can handle all of the shutdown procedure. Problem solved!

Thank you for trying to help me out, and extra thanx to kiwi2b for the link to ClickOffthumbs up

Quote from: System Scheduler's Helpfile
Mouse Clicks

In the Sendkeys field that is mostly used for sending keypresses, special keys and macros there is also a limited facility to send mouse clicks.

The mouse click command consists simply of indicating which button to click (left or right) and the co-ordinates on the screen (x,y) to click. With the ability of windows to be on different parts of the screen often it is difficult to get a mouse click to always click the right co-ordinates, sometimes running an application maximized will help to guarantee that your mouse click command will always hit the right button or other control.

I don't think I can use System Scheduler, because of "the co-ordinates on the screen". The various messages don't have the exact same size, so the buttons to click will not all show up at the same co-ordinate. Besides, I am using Dialog Move, and I really don't want to have to remember to leave my cursor at the exact same place at every shutdown. Furthermore, ClickOff is easy to learn how to use, but System Scheduler is difficult / tiresome to (not) figure out.

Thanx for the link to the 1½ year old thread, mwb1100; good detective work!  thumbs up

So it was the 25 dollar Dialog Devil   that started me off - seems like a really fine program. I am testing the gratis ClickOff some more, though, and so far it will do - mainly, perhaps, because my PC has been acting decently today...

... no, not in the case of ClickOff. It turns out that ClickOff will not be placed in Start, but will move itself back - meaning that ClickOff always will be among the first programs to close. This is not too smart, I think, so I am off to write the author, and to test PTFBPro.

Edit: - but PTFBPro is $30, so I am kind of still in the need...

I should of course have told that I use Process Explorer as task manager and Startup Delayer as startup manager. One result of this combination is that (most of) the programs wil be closed in the same order they were started. So "all" I have to do is, to have the New Program starting as the last program, and it will also be the last to close.

Thank you for the links (they were both new to me).   thumbs up

Not skrommel's "AutoClick", but some auto-clicker ??

Some weeks ago I saw some program with the feature to auto-click annoying boxes / questions / popups, but have completely forgotten all about what was the name of it - and I don't recall if this feature was the sole purpose of the program, or just one of maybe many features. My problem right now is that my XP (still) is unstable, and at shutdown I will quite too often be told that this or that program is waiting for me to click some button. This is of course annoying / frustrating, because the PC won't close until the (F-rated) button has been clicked - even though I am using Brutus > "Kill hanging apps",- and I simply NEED some app  or another  to auto-click these totally stupid boxes.

I am (almost) certain such an app is around, but what is the name of it, please??   tellme

I believe you were trying a beta version back then,
Please give this new version a (second) chance!
Resizing background is what it is abouth.

Liquid Resize

A quite different kind of resizer, Liquid Resize, can be found at thegedanken.com

- I am very impressed with this app, but find it hard to tell about it, so I will encourage you to go to CyberNet Notes or YouTube and see the fine video, to understand how this works.

Quote
Wouldn't it be cool to shrink your images without losing information on the main part of the image, but only shrinking the background. This application tries to accomplish just that: take a look at the Examples and you will understand.


One very strange thing, though: The app must have been named Retarget, I guess, because the name Liquid Resize only appears in the titelbar of the program. The no-installation executing file is named Retarget.exe

 Create a custom software update notifier


Quote from: CyberNotes
One of the most common things that I’ve been getting asked is how people can stay up-to-date on the latest software. I got really excited about the free UpdateStar application which I mentioned last week, but it still didn’t have information on a lot of the software that I used.

There are hundreds of sites out there that provide RSS feeds for downloads, and I began to think to myself that there had to be a good way to use some of those feeds to my advantage. Then Yahoo! Pipes came to mind since I had just used that last week to show how to translate RSS feeds, and it works perfectly in this situation.

–Overview–
What we’re going to do with Yahoo! Pipes is combine several feeds from popular download sites into one central feed. I recommend a handful of sites at the end of this article that should offer exactly what you’re looking for.

Then we’re going to use Yahoo! Pipes to sift through every item in each of the feeds, and pull out only the items that interest us. Because of the nature of Yahoo! Pipes it will only take a second to go back and add more things to watch for, so don’t worry if you forget to put an app on the list to be monitored.

Sorry, mitzevo, I didn't notice your request at first.

The most important features I get from (overlapping and eyecandy included):

QT Tabbar, CFi ShellToys, Xentient Thumbnails, WireKeys, PS Hot Folders, Send To Toys, MediaInfo, Punk ÜberIcon, BAxBEx for IrfanView, and DM2.

- but I didn't bother here to differ between gratis and $$ versions.
5320  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What is the currently best Desktop Search software? on: October 15, 2007, 11:49:22 AM
I am curious to know if anybody has found any program, pay or not, that works well, indexes all MS Office documents, including PSTs, PDFs, inside compressed archives, etc.
I wonder, did anyone try Exalead?

Exalead comes close, I believe. Unfortunately it made my unstable XP very sluggish, so I didn't borther to finish my test of it. But here are first the known limitations:

Quote from: Exalead ReadMe
KNOWN LIMITATIONS

Installation and Configuration:

- You must have the Administrative Rights on your machine to install Exalead Desktop.


Hard Drives:

- Metadata Quicktime files media files are not indexed

- Only the first 100 pages of big office files are indexed.

- If your hard drive contains many files with inconsistent modifications times (modification in the future for instance), these files might be indexed again each time Exalead Desktop restarts, leading to bad overall performance.


Performance:

- “As Soon As Possible”  indexing strategy may drag down the overall performance of your computer. Sticking to “When Idle” indexing strategy fixed the problem.

- If the user configures the Product to index the whole content of its C: hard drive, a small impact in the overall performance of its PC might be noticed, especially when services that manipulate a large number of temporary files are also running on the same PC.


Outlook Express:

- It is not possible to index IMAP accounts within Outlook Express

Their praise:

[attachimg=1]


You can set Exalead to not use more than so or so percentage CPU while indexing, but here is the CPU usage (while indexing) without this restrain:

[attachimg=2]


WARNING:
Add/Remove was NOT able to remove Exalead properly from my computer
- but otherwise it seemed to be a very fine search engine thingy.

I would say you should keep this text - but still the third picture is nicer to look at, I think.

Well - "brave new world" - I surely am impressed.

- and maybe now I can understand why D'Opus' pricetag grew to be so enormous.

But seriously: $40 for merely updating it, and two years in college for learning how to use it??!! Get lost! I am glad that my needs are fulfilled by my slow, crude and simple but gratis Explorer combination, thank you!

Oh, there is a manual?   embarassed

Just yesterday a friend wrote me and told about a vision he allegedly had recieved from God. In the vision there was a blindfolded couple, standing in front of a giant diamond. They didn't know there was this huge treasure, so they didn't know they could touch it and grab it  if only they would reach out their arms. Your praise to D'Opus makes me sort of feel the same way.

Thanks for the pedagogic answer, sri   cheesy

I remember a teacher who gave a very poor lecture on a subject, and then asked: "Are there any questions to this?" We were not able to answer him, because you really have to know at least something   in order to understand what it is you should be asking. I guess, the problem with D'Opus is just about the same: I did trial the wonder program, but I didn't know anything about what could be done, so I never knew why I should keep it. Because I didn't know how to ask the right question.

Maybe.
