51  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: DVCS ? (All about Git, Mercurial-Hg and the like...) on: July 15, 2013, 12:05:55 AM
Hey, thanks for keeping this thread alive, ewemoa ! I lost track of it in February.

I have been using the following handy tip in SmartGitHg recently with some success:

Depending on the conditions, I found it's possible to modify the content of commits older than the most recent [1].

The most recent commit can be made available for editing via the "Undo Last Commit" command.  Sometimes it's possible to use the "Reorder Commits" command to make an older commit the most recent commit.  Once that is done, the "Undo Last Commit" command can be applied to it, modifications performed, and a new replacement commit can be created.  It may then be possible to reorder the new commit back into its original position (so-to-speak).

When this works I find it simpler than doing git rebase -i <sha-of-parent-commit-of-interest> from the command line.



[1] Strictly speaking the commit isn't being modified -- a new sequence of commits is created with appropriate content, but I assume most folks interested in doing this sort of thing know this already smiley

Cool tip! Thanks.

This would only work as a temporary measure, if I'm not mistaken. Isn't the priority reset each time the task manager is closed? The problem isn't so much the slowness once it's loaded, but the (long) time it takes for it to just appear.

Just now, it took 25s to show its face. Feels like I'm booting an OS or something.
53  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Windows 8's Task Manager -- Slow as Hell. on: July 14, 2013, 02:48:12 PM
@Carol: yup, that slowness is inexcusable.

The first thing I do on a new installation of any Windows version is replacing the task manager with a tool called 'Process Explorer' from SysInternals.

Thanks Shade. I use process explorer too from time to time -- especially when I need to find out what's keeping my external storage busy. It's always installed on my various machines. However, I (used to) launch taskmanager to rapidly kill tasks or check  ram/cpu usage of certain processes, etc. like most mere mortals. Process Explorer, while great, used to be slower --as in a few noticeable seconds slower. Now it's different though... Not because it's quicker, but because Task Manager has become unbearably slow.

Mine takes a while when the processor is under load.   I haven't tried yet b/c I don't really use it that much (I use process explorer), but have you tried to increase the priority of task manager?

By using e.g. "start /high" ?  Or by using the Prio utilitty (just found it by googling) ?

You're right, it seems very slow loading the first time.  But bring it up again and it's faster the second and subsequent times.

My experience is that it doesn't take too long before a re-run is slow again. And just remains slow, no matter how many times I rerun it. No idea what does that. Maybe atmospheric humidity.
54  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Windows 8's Task Manager -- Slow as Hell. on: July 14, 2013, 01:22:33 PM
Ah! I'm not alone.  smiley

There are a few good things about it, but just the fact that it's so s-s-l-l-o-o-w-w drives me mad. The whole idea of the task manager used to be "an application that always answers fast, no matter what"!  The weird thing is that I've read here and there comments about how responsive it is, etc. How can that be ? Here it's always been slow. I'm not using any special anti virus, and I use Comodo strictly as a Firewall for the days I'm traveling.

Haven't tried any of the alternative task managers either, simply because I've grown tired of maintaining an OS full of replacements for all the things that should just work... But I digress.

One thing I think I haven't tried consistently is launching it from the run "dialog". I might try that today -- I'm not holding my breath.
55  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Windows 8's Task Manager -- Slow as Hell. on: July 14, 2013, 12:25:26 PM
Hi everyone. I searched the Web a bit but can't find any real discussion and solution to this problem... And not too many people seems to complain about it.

Since I bought a new laptop with windows 8 pre-installed, I've had to put up with a super slow Task Manager. After hitting ctrl+shift+esc, Task Manager takes between 10s and 60s to appear. Anything else is quicker than that! Again : note that the laptop is new and fairly powerful.

Anybody else has this kind of experience ? Any potential cure ? it's really annoying.

(Reinstalling Windows is out of the question here -- too long.)

Pretty surprising, yes! It somewhat corroborates the perception/idea that Git is 1- great at what it does 2- and a/the "major player" in the DVCS (or maybe even the whole VS) ecosystem...
59  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: DVCS ? (All about Git, Mercurial-Hg and the like...) on: January 24, 2013, 11:04:53 AM
Thanks for the updates, Ewemoa. V4 seems like it's bringing useful features to the table. I'll see if I have the time to update today.

(Also : the "Blame" command is very useful for debugging. I've used quite a few times.)

The commit appears to include the selected files even if changes from them have not been registered with the index.

This is quite true. I made a few mistakes in the past. I don't find it that annoying though as I forces me to be more vigilant when I commit -- i.e. review each changes made to the code before indexing & committing.

Hi ewemoa,

Thanks for your nice example ! Git is fun, isn't it ?

I've been using the index editor and stashing capabilities quite a bit in the last 1.5 year. Rebase, not as much. Maybe because I'm mostly working on my own, I don't mind having a few meaningless commits. I haven't looked for rebase interactive in the new SmartGit ; but, as you say, it doesn't seem to be implemented yet. Should be soon as the developer mentioned an available preview in October.

Apart from that, yes, stashing can be extremely useful. E.g. for those times where I find a bug that should be fixed before pursuing some coding : stash the current work, do the bug fixing, come back to previous coding by reapplying stash.

You mentioned renaming in a previous post. I still use the command line when I want to do an explicit file rename. But I usually don't have to as Git detects those if you're careful not committing renames with a bunch of other changes.

--

SmartGit proved to be quite user friendly, stable and helpful. Used it almost exclusively, together with TortoiseGit which has some great features implementations too (I especially like the fact that I can select and copy commits from the log view and I'll get a nice clean copy of all of them, with the comments... I use that for quickly creating reports). Also, SmartGit now supports Hg, which is a good thing for those of us who use mercurial !
62  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Ctrl+Alt+Enter and Firefox on: November 24, 2012, 04:45:25 PM
OK, so I changed my browser to internet explorer and the behavior is the same. So I guess there's now a fixed delay between each "launch" in farr. I understand that when launching applications, it could help in terms of performance, etc. However, when "launching links", it makes the whole process a bit tedious.

Is there a way to adjust that delay or remove it ?
63  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Ctrl+Alt+Enter and Firefox on: November 21, 2012, 01:28:17 PM
Hello all.
For some time Ctrl+Alt+Enter will launch multiple searches (for example) one... tab... at... a... time...
Firefox will wait until one search finishes loading, and then... will load the next one. It's excruciatingly slow and I have to wait since the new tab will steal the focus, preventing me to read anything.
Am I the only one suffering from this ? Is it a "new" farr feature ? a firefox change ?
Thanks for helping me with this one.

Sorry, your post got lost in my emails for some reason... I'll look at that this WE.
Did you find any solution ?
65  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: DVCS ? (All about Git, Mercurial-Hg and the like...) on: May 13, 2012, 09:33:34 PM
You're working with Git ? Is there a reason why you wanted to do an explicit rename ? Normally Git is good at automatically detecting renames.
66  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: DVCS ? (All about Git, Mercurial-Hg and the like...) on: May 06, 2012, 12:19:53 PM
BTW, does any one know how to tell -- via the Main perspective -- which branch one is on?

In the the "directories" section/pane, the top directory should have the branch specified in parenthesis.**

E.g. MyCode  (master)

----

Yup, cherry-picking is useful... if you're careful ! :-)


** that said, it could be made more visible. The window title bar would be a good place.
67  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: EasyGit - Sane syntax for git on: April 25, 2012, 09:29:48 AM
Yes and SVN (but not svn working copies, it will create a 99% compatible git working copy that interacts with the svn repository)

I'm curious... Did you try it yet ?
68  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: DVCS ? (All about Git, Mercurial-Hg and the like...) on: April 25, 2012, 12:13:58 AM
I think contacting the developers is the best way for such a problem -- and especially for an actively developed application like SmartGit.
69  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: DVCS ? (All about Git, Mercurial-Hg and the like...) on: April 23, 2012, 11:06:15 PM
ewemoa, you seem to be on the right path...
I realize I don't have enough time to delve into that ! I wish I could. Did you send a message to the developer(s) ?

On a side note, I noticed that SmartGit now supports "git init" -- IIRC, it used to be that one had to use git from the command line for this thumbs up

Quote
Project ->
  New Window ->
    Open an existing local or create a new repository


Thanks for the heads up! Didn't notice it. I asked for it a long time ago -- and, like you used the command line or tortoiseGit to to it.


Edit : actually, it was the clone --bare command I was having problems with... and while it's true I usually initialize my repos with the command line or TortoiseGit, i believe SmartGit has been offering the "Open an existing local or create a new repository" for a while (since v2.x) . I might be mistaken though...

Strange. I'll see if I can test that tomorrow.
71  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Farr freezes / delays : solved but... on: April 08, 2012, 05:45:11 PM
Thanks, Armando!  FWIW, this is also the same problem I've been having for well over a year, as described in this thread...

Mark

Cool ! And... You're welcome !
I must admit that the delays were so bad that I almost installed Launchy !!  ohmy :-)
72  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: EasyGit - Sane syntax for git on: April 06, 2012, 06:32:09 PM
I've been debating whether to use easygit or not about a year ago... and then I forgot as I got into SmartGit (GUI -- there is at least one thread discussing it). SmartGit pretty much does everything I need (free for non-commercial use). And for the occasional "blame" command stuff, I'll use Tortoise Git GUI. Tortoise would be okay for most stuff.

The "bad" thing is that I pretty much forgot all the more complex Git command after so many months using GUIs. smiley

PS: I love Git !

1) Yes ; e.g. happens when MicrosoftOfficeWord2003.lnk (if I understand correctly that .lnk aren't considered aliases in that context...)
2) Yes, I checked that already. Farr isn't hiding.
3) Yes : v2.105.01
74  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Latest FARR Release v2.107.04 beta - Sep 23, 2012 on: April 06, 2012, 03:12:39 PM
1- open farr (caps lock in my case)
2- write something in textbox
3- press Ctrl+Enter to "launch the selected (or first if in search box) item AND keep the FARR window open"

Item is launched but farr disappears instantly. Alt-tabbing confirms that it's gone.

Here's my ini file, in case it would help (removed personal info in the settings at the end).

Armando, see if you maybe have that option above set in the radio box "Hide When Focus Is Lost" -- that can cause some odd behavior.

Thanks !
It doesn't seem to change anything here.

Here are my settings :

[attach]

[attach]

[attach]


FWIW, here, toggling

  Options
    Window Options
      Focus Preservation
        Hide When Focus Is Lost

seems to toggle the new Control+Enter behavior here -- if any of the other radio buttons are set, the new behavior appears to be in effect.

Thanks ewemoa.
Doesn't seem to apply in my case. Unless I'm misunderstanding your explanations... Which entirely possible.
