129  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / Re: DONE: Please help me find that utility - "Something" To TXT ? on: September 04, 2014, 02:58:54 PM
Hi guys, before many years i have use a tiny free utility that creates a text file from any windows file.

Man, I used to love that thing ... I think it was called F-note (short for file note). It was just a context menu item that showed up for all files that would put an empty text file with the same name in the same location as target file.

AbteriX's solution looks like a hit, as it will produce the same result.
I remember getting a virus that did this (on a work computer!) way back in 2000.  We went in the computer and noticed that every single audio file had a txt file created.  What a pain that was!

131  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / bluetooth: folder browsing possible? on: September 03, 2014, 05:17:11 PM
Can bluetooth be used to browse the folders of devices wirelessly?  Ultimately, can it be used to sync files in a directory back and forth?

I have tablets and phones that have bluetooth that I want syncing folders in places where wifi/cell is not available.  How can I do this?  The only way is bluetooth or something like wimax which I've never really tried.  The problem I am running into with bluetooth (using the CSR Harmony stack) is that it doesn't seem to be able to do any file transferring.  It has this feature called PAN (personal area network) but I don't know what the hell it does nor how it works.  I click on the PAN icon and it connects, but then what?  I don't see any folders to browse anywhere, or a drive/device that appears in my explorer.  It just connects and then nothing.  I don't get it.

I've used wiznote for collaboration, and it worked out really well.  My only complaints were superficial gui issues.  i don't know about the rtf feature you want though.  I'm guessing evernote is also very similar, perhaps less powerful.

If rightnote had a collaboration feature, I'd be all over that.

onenote is awesome, but my problem with onenote is that you really have to commit to using it, and if you don't like something here or there, tough.

If I were you, I'd start with Wiznote, then look at others.

Thanks Shades.

Blown capacitor is the most common reason. I opened the box but none are obviously blown - none are raised or blackened.

Is it the flux capacitor?

Bummer!  Sad

I kinda liked it more when we didn't really know how it worked.  Cool

Some harmless mystery is always nice to have around. Grin

Network Settings Manager (both a free and a paid version available) sounds like just what your doctor ordered smiley

I wrote a tool with somewhat similar features, around the Windows 95/98 availability period (15 to 18 years ago), but I never updated it when Window 2000 (and later XP) with it's improved login procedures arrived, as it was to be started before/on top op the Win9x logon screen.
Never really published on the interwebs.
omg i didn't know about this great tool.  thanks!!

I'm pretty sure now that the problem was, embarrassingly, caused by an older version of my own program, Multi Photo Quotes.  Installing the latest version seemed to solve it.
Would you like me to contact the developer?

If I'm understanding this correctly, you want the webmail version of gmail to be the default email handler.  This doesn't sound like the easiest thing to do, but try these suggesstions:

another way is to get a pop software for windows, like the Bat or Mailbird or thunderbird, and set that as your default email program with a gmail account.  That seems to be what most people do.

One thing that interested me with that comic strip...was how just adding those tiny little eyebrows, it added some much more "emotion" to the facial expression.
south park.  they do so much with so little.  I've actually been working on my own style that is both efficient and expressive.  very cool stuff.

Performance featuring Seaboard GRAND keyboards.

On May 22nd, ROLI showcased a Seaboard ensemble at Abbey Road Studios, featuring legendary keyboardist Jordan Rudess, accompanied by Marco Parisi and Heen-Wah Wai, and Ray Hearne at the drums.The song was composed for ROLI by Nathan Stornetta and Jordan Rudess. It is named after bass player extraordinaire Tony Levin, for its incredible bass and synth sounds.

Interesting possibilities for the adventurous keyboardist...

More on the Seaboard can be found on its website. Link here.
That's VERY fascinating.  First thing I think of is a keyboard that has breath controller, pitch/bend, or any midi control built into the keys themselves.

I certainly have my pet peeves when it comes to language and grammar though. One of the big ones is the general inability of English speakers to account for number when they write or speak. It's not that hard to tell the difference between "1" and "other than 1". Sigh... There are others though. (That was a concise demonstration of the issue.)
Que?  I'm curious, but I don't think I understand what you are saying?  Clarification?

I love this thread, thanks all.

When it comes to this subject, I find myself agreeing with Louie in one of the episodes, where he says something like...I just want to be able to raise my girls so they are capable of going to a city, finding a job, and settling down into a decent job and lifestyle.

148  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Bleep… Bittorrent unveils serverless & encrypted chat client on: August 15, 2014, 01:33:52 PM
Yeah, but how does the client know who to communicate your IP address to?
... like a torrent. There are trackers that know the locations of peers holding data. But they don't know what the content of the data is. And when the actual data of a message gets transferred, it's done peer-to-peer so there's no metadata passing through a central server where it can be easily intercepted. ... actual communication takes place directly between the parties themselves.
Are those trackers run by Bittorrent Inc?

BTW does the peer matching for Bittorrent Sync work the same way? Some write ups claim that Bittorrent Sync is more secure than Dropbox since the data isn't cloud stored. But if the client matching happens in the cloud a powerful agency could require the cloud operator to hand over the secret key and then use the key to access the Sync folder directly on the client. Likewise a malicious employee who previously would try to circumvent company security to access a client data item would now instead try to circumvent company security to get the client's secret key and with it get the data directly from the client. Bittorrent saves money on not having to host and transfer the data and client may see higher speeds. But is it in practice any more secure than Dropbox style services?
Interesting question, didn't really think about that.  I use btsync and it's great, I love how nothing is stored in the cloud.  TO answer the question, I think I'll reference 40hz' posts regarding privacy and how there basically is none in the current computer/internet setup, and it's a game that we're just playing amongst ourselves in a system that is already compromised.

Even without the alcohol, soft-carbonated (and preferably unsweetened) lemonade is a treat on a hot day. Kiss

Learned about that one from a expat French client of mine. I understand it's big on the Continent.
Interesting...never tried it sugarless.  Any recommendations on brands?
