126  Other Software / Found Deals and Discounts / Re: RightNote 3.0 - 50% deal at BitsDuJour - coming soon! on: August 09, 2013, 01:54:10 PM
The main added benefit of the paid Standard version for me is the ability to clip and import from web pages while preserving most original formatting, and other users will find further advantages. A Pro version is also available with even more features, including Evernote sync, also the ability to save entire web pages as a note.
I have a license for RightNote Pro version 2, and yes, it does do web clipping, but not quite as I'd like it.  See my earlier post Re: web clipping

HTH...  You can save configurations under Layouts, but be aware they don't always "stick," i.e. you may need to re-load your favoured layout next time you start CHS.

If it's by date, then my licence would work.  Thanks, I hadn't spotted that.  I've not been much interested in the latest features, though, which mostly seem to revolve around EverNote Cloud.

I just stumbled upon this today. Might be of use/help (I don't have any experience with using the Group Policy Editor, so cannot make any useful comment):
By coincidence, Gizmo's article Nifty Way to Automatically Run a Windows Script or Program Whenever You Turn Off the PC on using the Group Policy Editor appeared today, 1st August 2013.
130  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / RightNote version 3.0.0 released on: August 01, 2013, 03:53:30 PM
RightNote version 3.0.0 has been released:
RightNote Release History

31 July 2013, version 3.0.0

- New Feature: Evernote (Account) Manager makes it easy to work/sync with multiple Evernote accounts and notebooks.
- Fix a number of dialogs for high resolution display
- Change sync inbox page caption to “Sync Inbox”. This can be changed under Options->Editors->Evernote.
- The “Evernote Integration->Getting Started” help topic was re-written for the new Evernote Manager.
- Added help topics: Token security, Warnings and precautions, Additional way to link a notebook, and Notes for upgrading from v2.
I bought my licence on a Bits du Jour promotion.  At that point, Bits licence comments said minor versions only.  If that's correct, then as RightNote has changed from v2 to v3, I would have to buy a new licence if I wanted to use the version 3 series.  I don't immediately see anything on the BauerApps Web site about this or any price breaks, so I've contacted Rael for information.

Don't know if it helps, but take a look at Horst Schaeffer's ShortExe:
Windows insists that a shortcut target must have a fixed drive letter, which means you cannot use Windows shortcuts within a USB flash drive where the drive letter may change.

Here comes ShortExe.

The idea is to have a little program that you rename to something which will be interpreted (by the program itself) as shortcut information based on the actual drive letter.

(There are times when I remember that the first PC I had regular use of had 640k RAM and a 20MB hard disk -- and that WordStar ran comfortably from a small fraction of that disk space
I remember those good old days - until one discovered TSRs, and ran into RAM-cram smiley  If you're nostalgic for WordStar, still the best way to get text down on disk, take a look at WSedit, or its more basic brother ME (Martin's Editor), the latter being intended as (gasp!  Back on topic!) a Notepad replacement, and both of them freeware.

Kirby Alarm Pro, but you may need to have the processes you want to control set a flag file and use Kirby Alarm's "Watch File" feature.

@IainB - Kirby Alarm is another fine product from down under  smiley
134  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: Remember where I got the Download on: July 22, 2013, 04:11:56 PM
Just for the record, you can do something like it with Internet Download Manager by Tasks > Export > To text file, and choose from a list,
Export download list
        [X] Export download queue
        [ ] Export selected files
        [ ] Export all files
It gives an output something like this:
but export has to be done manually.  I just asked them if logging could be made automatic.  Ideally, I'd like that information automatically poked into FILE_ID.DIZ for the downloaded files.  My usual file manager Total Commander understands these, and copies them along with the file if I move it elsewhere.  Still, a plain-text list is much better than nothing.
135  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Cheap LED torches/flashlights - any good? on: July 22, 2013, 02:49:42 PM
I'm not a real fan of the Ultra white LED light either. I just don't trust that I'm really seeing everything that I could.
I don't think you are.  I'm sure I read (somewhere on the Web, so it must be true...) something to the effect that you can't really use LEDs for hunting at night, because their limited spectrum messes up the human eye's depth perception.

There is a tool store chain called Harbor Freight [...] I've been carrying one of their ~ 3" x 1" round flashlights in my pocket [...]They usually come 2 in a pack for $3, have a metal case, and are more impact resistant than any other flashlight I've ever had.
Website has them on sale now for $1
That looks identical to the ones that started me asking the original question!  There appear to be several variations on the case; with/without binocular-style rubber armour, or a plastic case.  Mine has a photoluminescent green plastic case that glows in the dark like a ghost train.

You might want to look at Hilitext.  Be sure to try before you buy, though, as while it says "Windows 8/7/Vista/XP 32-bit," it doesn't appear to have been updated since 2005.  Also be aware that when you use the "highlight a text in a file" feature, you have to save your search text as Unicode.

I'm slightly surprised not to see any love for EditPad Lite here, given how popular EditPad Pro has historically been.  Maybe "Free for Personal Use" is too much limitation?
138  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: The Non-Notepad(MS) Thread! on: July 14, 2013, 03:39:34 PM
I would probably have bought emeditor at some point if they hadn't stopped offering lifetime licenses, but I can understand why they did it.
EmEditor Free for personal use, but you might find the limitations too great.  Besides, good though it is, it's a bit big for this thread?
139  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: How to concatenate a number of text files which may have different encoding? on: June 30, 2013, 03:16:55 PM
Batch file method should work, but I've sometimes used ports of the Unix cat command:
Usage: cat [OPTION] [FILE]...
Concatenate FILE(s), or standard input, to standard output.

  -A, --show-all           equivalent to -vET
  -b, --number-nonblank    number nonblank output lines
  -e                       equivalent to -vE
  -E, --show-ends          display $ at end of each line
  -n, --number             number all output lines
  -s, --squeeze-blank      never more than one single blank line
  -t                       equivalent to -vT
  -T, --show-tabs          display TAB characters as ^I
  -u                       (ignored)
  -v, --show-nonprinting   use ^ and M- notation, except for LFD and TAB
      --help               display this help and exit
      --version            output version information and exit

With no FILE, or when FILE is -, read standard input.

  -B, --binary             use binary writes to the console device.

Once you buy a Serif program, they continually send you emails with upgrade offers after a new version comes out.  So the apparent newness may be a "perception problem."

Iain Banks was apparently only 59 years old when he died - well below the typical "three score and ten"
There've been news bulletins about a Web site that reports life expectancy in different parts of Britain.  They apparently used an average span of 75.
144  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: You like science fiction, don't you? Of course you do! on: June 12, 2013, 03:00:12 PM
I don't recall reading anything by Iain Banks. He didn't have a very long innings, did he?
(Actually, Walking On Glass was sort of sf too, but I might be the only person in the world who liked it -- it's often forgotten.)
I read a few of his, including Walking On Glass.  He seemed to specialise in odd, unsettling novels, but in some cases, they stick in your mind.  In the case of that one, the "matrioshka doll" creatures.

Oh, and you might remember the fuss about Feersumm Enjinn.
No, but I remember having fun decoding Bascule the Teller's spelling  smiley

Against a Dark Background was a good one (IMHO).  But, I remember reading a review which commented that he "gleefully" killed off his characters.

Is it just my system, or is there something slightly odd about 2.18.01's accelerator keys?  The first time I press the hotkey then W to bring up the main window, they don't work as expected.  That is, if I press Alt+F, nothing happens, even though the File menu is underlined.  I have to press Alt and release it to highlight File, then press Enter to drop down the menu.  This is with the cursor on All clips in the tree, but, CHS 2.18.01 starts with All coloured grey, not blue to indicate it's active.  If I click on it to make it go blue, or likewise on New clips, the accelerator keys work as expected, i.e. Alt+F immediately drops down the File menu, Alt+L the layouts, etc.

I don't know if this happened before, but I don't remember it.
