4451  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Similar program to Ps Tray factory that works on Vista 64-bit. on: September 17, 2008, 03:46:02 PM
Actually, there is a top secret link to PSTray Factory somewhere in these forums that gives access to the 64-bit version, if I remember correctly.  Hold on, let me find it...
OK, here's the actual link to the file:
http://www.pssoftlab.com/download/pstrayf263.exe

And here's the thread where I found it here at DC (thanks Josh!):
PS Tray Vista (DC thread)

PS Tray Factory is my preferred program also.  I used to use SystrayX but I hate their licensing policy (especially compared to PS Tray's licensing policy) and eventually I felt the features in PS Tray were better implemented.  The good thing about SystrayX is that it "feels" powerful, but it came to a point where I thought, well, how much power do I really need for a tray management utility?  And I also remember it not handling certain things as well as PS Tray.

Ah!  That's very useful (the Journal grid, that is).  I remember asking for such a thing a long while ago.  Cool!
4453  Other Software / Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Re: Announcing my new website (superboyac). on: September 17, 2008, 11:25:19 AM
OK, I finally got the list up.  The Superior Software List...yes, it's a spoof on Zaine's Great Software List.  However, since he has abandoned Windows, I feel it's my duty to have a place where people can find reliable Windows software like I used to rely on Z's list.  Check it out:
http://aram.dcmembers.com/superior-software-list/
[attachimg=1]
Now, the list is there and that's pretty much it.  There's a lot of work for me to do.  I need to add a picture and blurb for each program in the list.  I need to organize it into categories.  I need to add some kind of logo or banner for the list.
4454  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: SQLNotes...what is it exactly? on: September 17, 2008, 11:19:33 AM
you probably know this already,
but either the items, or their parent (or some item higher up the hierarchy) must have the source field ticked/filled in order to show in a grid.
It's true, I know that (for the most part).  I don't really have an issue with the way the program works.  My problem is that I rarely (if ever) mess around with the filters and sophisticated display options.  All I do is add items to grids and that's it.  So when I come back and it's gone, it's confusing.  So when I get answers like "check the source filter" or something like that, my response is "Why should I?  I never touched it or anything like that in the first place."

I know the information in SN is very flexible and powerful with the way you can display it.  I just want to help keep the simple aspects of the program simple.  I love powerful programs, but I also appropriate simplicity if that makes any sense.

And I love it when authors fix issues with their program in a matter of minutes!  THanks Pierre.
4455  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Someone MUST make a new PowerMarks program. on: September 16, 2008, 07:16:24 PM
Thanks for the very kind words, twinkler, that means a lot to me.

I can usually sort through all of this, but it's just getting so insanely busy.  I'm juggling my job (which is busy itself) with this stat class I'm taking, trying to get my website going, my music, trying to be remotely sociable....argh!  It's really just this preparation for grad school, I think I'd be able to handle everything else normally.

Anytime programming and coding get involved in my life, it adds a level of stress for me.  It's not that I'm not good at it, it's just that it's not something I do, and each code is particular to that application and it has to be so precise, so it's just another thing to learn.  That's what I went through and still going through with Wordpress (with css, php, xml, xhtml, etc.).  I don't really want to do that.  I'm just a software user, I like to click around and figure things out.  That's most of my motivation for even writing software reviews and stuff.  I just want our lives to be easier with this technology we have available and that's always my goal in my ramblings on software.  The more software helps us, the more time we have for doing more things that we love like our work, our music, families, friends, etc.  Right?

OK, sorry about that...long day.

sheesh...ok, one thing good about Groupwise was that I could make a distribution list and not show all the freakin email addresses.  Our division here likes to send a lot of emails to everyone in the division, about 100 people, and all the addresses show in the email, and it looks ridiculous.

I'll try this eannouncer.
4457  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Outlook 2007 isn't so bad on: September 16, 2008, 07:02:35 PM
There is no other way that I know. Why not send it to yourself or a no-reply address and BCC the list? That's what a lot of lists do it anyway.
but BCCs are often filtered as spam. Email merge is the way to go.
What is email merge?

4458  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: SQLNotes...what is it exactly? on: September 16, 2008, 06:37:11 PM
That could be it, but the confusing part is that the little "expand" tick wasn't under the bullet.  So how am I supposed to know it was there?  Sorry, but I'm a little busy right now, or else I'd be attaching screenshots and stuff.
4459  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: SQLNotes...what is it exactly? on: September 16, 2008, 04:55:56 PM
Ah!  Great!  The filter criteria thing was not enabled so that wasn't it.  But the right click worked.

So that's great.  THanks.  My only question is why did this happen when I absolutely didn't modify any of these settings.  For the most part, my extent of using SN is just entering items in grids.  I have very rarely even touched any of the buttons and options.  THat's why it's puzzling to me when this stuff happens.  I 'm not really touching all these features.
4460  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: SQLNotes...what is it exactly? on: September 16, 2008, 04:06:24 PM
I find them in the live-search.  I seem to have deleted the Journal grid (I tend to do that for the grids I don't use, I know, bad habit from the old days).  The only filled fields is Item.
I see all 81 siblings in the list.  I also see the parent item shown, which is weird because the parent item is showing in the grid, but not the siblings.  But it is saying that it's shown in 0 grids.

Do you have any idea why these items would just disappear?  This disappearing stuff is the only hangup I have with SQL.  Remember in prior versions I had the issue with the HTML pane?  Now this.
4461  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: SQLNotes...what is it exactly? on: September 16, 2008, 03:54:02 PM
So how can I recover my lost items?  There are a lot of them.  If possible, I need to search and find all items that are NOT shown in any grids, and then assign the Evernote grid to them all.  Repair didn't work.
4462  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Outlook 2007 isn't so bad on: September 16, 2008, 03:38:57 PM
How can I hide all the addresses from showing up when I use distribution lists in Outlook 2007?  In all other email programs, the distribution list doesn't show all the addresses, just the title of the distribution list.  In Outlook it expands it to all the addresses which is really ugly when you receive the email.

All the solutions I searched for say to use the BCC field.  But that's stupid.  Like I said, in all other programs, you don't have to do that.  Any suggestions?
4463  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: SQLNotes...what is it exactly? on: September 16, 2008, 03:33:39 PM
Really?  Is that the best way for that feature to function?  Shouldn't it tell me what grid it's in regardless of the filter?  Wouldn't that be more useful?  That way, when I go to a grid and see something missing, I can search for it and double-check to see if it was really in that grid or not.
Remember grids don't contain items, they display them, and if it does not display it, then it isn't there.

I've fixed the properties pane issue. Users may download it
I get that.  The problem I'm running into is this.  I create a bunch of items in a grid.  I come back and those items aren't there anymore.  I didn't do anything with filters or such.  So, how can I "recover" those items into the original grid?  I thought I could use the field for "shown in x grids" to see which grid the items were originally in.  Then I could use that information to figure out what is hiding the item.  Honestly, I don't think I've ever used a filter on a grid yet to purposefully hide items, yet I've had several occasions where items have just disappeared from grids.  This will probably be worked out in future versions, but in the mean time I just wanted to see if there was a way to recover the items when this occurs.
4464  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: SQLNotes...what is it exactly? on: September 16, 2008, 01:49:34 PM
That's because -- IIRC -- the "shown in" field tells you where the item is shown *currently*. If it's filtered out of all grids, it's nowhere.

4465  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: SQLNotes...what is it exactly? on: September 16, 2008, 12:18:38 PM
I searched for one of the items and in the properties it says that it is shown in 0 grids.  So I don't think it's shown in any grid regardless of the filter.
I just installed the portable version and it shuts down (crashes) every time I try to open the properties pane.
4466  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: SQLNotes...what is it exactly? on: September 16, 2008, 12:10:32 PM
OK, I had a mishap again.  A while ago, I added about 80 items into my "Evernote" grid.  The items were all the software that I wanted to add to my website.  Now, I go back and the items are not in the grid anymore.  Of course, the items are still there, but they are not shown in any grids.  Why does this keep happening to me?  How can I quickly recover these items back into the grid without going and checking the field in the properties one by one for each item?

Ugh...I'm such a moron with autohotkey stuff.  I've been trying this solution and I just can't get it to work
My shortcuts are:
shift+ctrl+p  starts Powermarks
shift+ctrl+=  adds a bookmark

I was editing the script above, but I guess I'm not doing it right.  What am I supposed to do, edit the script, compile it, and then execute the exe file?  I don't know.  If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it.

Sure, I have it.  Are you sure you want it?  I thought it was a little lame, in retrospect.  But I may just be being hard on myself.

How long should the song be?

Wow, very sweet.  Thanks tomos, thanks Pierre.

I can't remember if I added a Mantis request to import text files into SN using the filename as the item title, and the file content as the html pane content.  I need to check.  This is so I can import my TexNotes info into SN.  After that, I can pretty much use SN exclusively since Evernote import is now supported.

You guys are free to use any of the podcast music I did before.  But I'll try to come up with something special for this.

What's the preference here?  Fast, slow, happy, sad, sexy, funny?

Also, how long should the tune be (in seconds)?
4472  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Someone MUST make a new PowerMarks program. on: September 13, 2008, 11:22:15 AM
I've actually had a couple of back and forths with the author.  He's a nice person.  I don't have any information as to why he chose to stop development.  But at least he made the program in the first place, so I'm thankful for that.
4473  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Someone MUST make a new PowerMarks program. on: September 12, 2008, 09:46:17 PM
patteo, you are so right about that.  The simplicity of Powermarks is really the thing that sets it apart.  I like mitaggedmarks, but it's not nearly as easy to use as powermarks was.  If it's my only option, I'm okay with it...I'm happy with it.  But first, I will try to get Powermarks working with that script posted above.

I'm just really happy that a couple of you resurrected this thread with these solutions.  I had given up!
4474  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Someone MUST make a new PowerMarks program. on: September 11, 2008, 05:22:11 PM
You might want to spend a little time with miTaggedMarks. It's the closest thing to Powermarks. Michael has put a lot of thought and work into the program, and his tag handling is actually more sophisticated than that of Powermarks. It's too bad he hasn't implemented something like Powermarks's status checking of the bookmarks.
OOoo!  miTaggedMarks looks really good.  I may have to get this one.
