save everything I type
« on: October 16, 2008, 03:38:53 AM »

Hello, I am interested for the simplest possible app that will save everything as text, in a text file.

Any recommendations? thanks.

Smart Type Assistant - typing automation, time-saving utility. Download Keyboard macros software
"Smart Type Assistant offers you Smart Diary – a useful feature for automatically saving what you type. It will help you to recall what you wrote some time ago, and to restore important documents after Windows crashes. It automatically stores everything you type in the strongly encrypted file, which can be protected with a password. It can help you to organize your archives."

I run PowerPro, which has a built-in *Exec LogKeys feature.  I wouldn't say it was the simplest possible application, though.  What you're looking for is a benign (we hope) keylogger.  You might try  Emsa Save My Work (not checked by me).

Quote
Emsa Save My Work is a quite simple but useful typed data recovery program. It works on a principle similar to usual key loggers but in a different fashion and purpose. Instead of spying on other people keystrokes, this program is designed to be fully visible and used by the actual computer owner and record the keystrokes typed into the computer, in order to provide a backup of all this typed data, should any problem occur. The program is very helpful because it saves all your typed data while you work. How many times you have lost your work because of power failure, blue screens, computer accidental reset, internet failure, user mistake or kids hitting the computer cables and any such unexpected events?

Suggest you also look at this DC thread: pls recommend a good benign keylogger.  That's where I heard about Emsa.

Smart Type Assistant

patteo,

Did you use Smart Typing Assistant to copy what you posted in the other thread?   :)

Ugh - URL blocked by company nannybot - will have to check when I get home...

No, I use Copyurl+ which is a Firefox that enables you to easily select text from a webpage together with the URL.

I think Smart Typing Assistant would probably be classified as a keylogger. Although I cannot say whether it is a benign one. Who knows really ? Maybe that is why it is blocked.

I would think all software of this nature has a keylogger component in it.

You need to apply the Nightly Tester Compatibility fix.
Nightly Tester Tools :: Firefox Add-ons
"Long Description

This extension adds a few extras useful to those that regularly test nightly builds of Firefox, Thunderbird, Sunbird and Toolkit Seamonkey (Suiterunner).

The following is a brief list of the extension's features, for the full set of features please visit the extension home page.

* Extension compatibility fixing
* Titlebar customisation
* Build ID retrieval
* Screenshots
* Breakpad information
* Restoring tabs from previous session
* Leak log analysis"
https://addons.mozil...S/firefox/addon/6543

Once you install this Add-on Nightly Tester I mean, you will find that when you check on the "incompatible Add-Ons, there will be an "option" somewhere. I think if I remember correctly, when you go to your listing of Add-Ons, right click on the "offending Add-on" and you should see an option to "Fix" it.

By the way, I'm using Firefox 3.03

If anyone wants to see what similar stuff is available or the impression of others, they may do well to have a read of

Giveaway of the Day - free licensed software daily - Smart Type Assistant
"Giveaway of the Day - Smart Type Assistant"
http://www.giveawayo...mart-type-assistant/

But of course if you want it for free, you are a few months too late.

But it's relatively cheap US$9.95 I think. I did not bother to install and use.

Don't want my laptop having too many processes running at all times.

Must work well, then, as the addon only says 1.5.
