Sweet crispy crap, why didn't I think of this?

You and me, both, my friend.   tongue  Everybody, let me know if the following build breaks anything.  Thanks.

Website | Download
v1.0.30 - 2010-02-27
    * If an archive file already exists, the current.anu contents will now be appended to it instead of a new_file[1].anu file being created.  (Thanks, DeVamp)

Well, at first it looks like it is working. Thmbsup

We'll see the following days :-)

Another option is to use the Archive hotkey or the Archive entry in the tray.
Ah yes, i'll archive right after every entry. Great tip!

Thanks for the feedback.
NP :-)
I even got a compliment at work because my timekeep was completly filled on time. :-)

So it sure is a very awesome program.
Tnx again.

Hopefully, with the latest build, you won't have to do this.  Just set your archive time to something very small...one minute or so.  The time and CPU used for an archival is negligible and shouldn't cause any hit on your system.

Hahaha...very nice.   cheesy

Here i'm back, with another suggestion:

I have put the popup to show every 15 minutes.
Because mostly i have to do short things for short periods for different clients.
So it's easy to just enter the name from the client i'm working for.

But sometimes it happens that i work a whole morning or afternoon or even a whole day for the same project or same client.
Then i don't need to be reminded every 15 minutes.

so my idea is to put a little snooze possibility to the popup.
The value of the snooze is the one that is defined in the options.

It's just an idea. :-)


Check attachment.

It's a good idea.  Currently, you can "freeze" the popup so that it doesn't pop up.  However, the sound will continue to play at the popup to remind you that Anuran is still working.

Unless you meant something else: Options > Popup tab > Show previous entry in popup checkbox

I don't understand this one.  embarassed

And yes, I need to check the options before asking redundant things  tongue
It was exactly that what i was suggesting. Tnx for being faster than fast  Thmbsup

What I'm saying is that, during those times when you're working with a single client, you can freeze the popup via hotkey or tray menu.  During the time it's frozen, the popup will not pop up but any sound effect you have configured will continue to play as a simple reminder that Anuran is still running.  If you hear this sound and you realise that you're done working with that single client, simply unfreeze Anuran and it will resume normal pop up behaviour.  Does that clear it up some?

That must be the "pause popup timer" option.

May I assume this is acceptable as an alternative to a snooze option?

I just updated Anuran for the first time since January (I do wish that DCUpdater were able to include Anuran in its automatic update list). Very nice that we can now sort the log files in reverse order, keeping the current log at top.

But my dream Anuview sort would let me quickly see all recent entries (across several log files) in entry order (ascending or descending, don't really care). We're almost there now, but FWIW, here are the small remaining issues:

1. The file sort order is not persistent, have to re-sort every time AnuView is opened (ok, only 2 clicks!)

2. Then the files are in descending date order, but the entries within each file are in ascending time order, so the merged entry list is up/down/up/down.

3. An alternative which works around (2), using the default ascending file order, has 2 problems: The current log is out of sequence, and it takes lots of scrolling to get down to the most recent files. So another solution would be an option to keep current.anu at the end of the file list, and to open anuview with the list pre-scrolled to the end of the list.

Thanks!

One other small issue, really just aesthetic... if the same description is used for multiple consecutive entries, and each is accepted by pressing arrow key then Enter, then the the CR characters accumulate.

Hi,

I appreciate the fact that the previous entry appeared when a new anuran entry pops out... very usefull, but could you add an option to have this text selected so it would be replaced automatically with the new one?
It'll prevent the "no wanted" duplicates which could accenditly occured in the log smiley

Thx for your software... really usefull and well thinked.

you know what would be cool is a way to add entries to farr via sending windows messages -- or via commandline; then we could have a farr alias that added an item to anuran.

Great idea, I was just looking for program like this smiley

I found quick two bugs for this frog:

- Using most common in Poland "polish programmers keyboard" to get those strange letters, Right Alt (or Alt Gr) is used, which is mapped as ctrl+alt.
But AltGr+a instead of writing polish letter ą (a,) acts as ctrl+a.

- giving 0 seconds/minutes/hours/days for popup, keeps the popup on the screen all the time, instead of not showing it at all (or maybe it is a feature not a bug Wink )

If I understand you correctly, I don't think there is anything I can do.  Anuran doesn't capture ctrl-a at all.  This is handled natively by the edit control itself.

- giving 0 seconds/minutes/hours/days for popup, keeps the popup on the screen all the time, instead of not showing it at all (or maybe it is a feature not a bug Wink )

Thanks, I'll try to find time to fix this.

So it's not possible to influence edit control to not to use ctrl-alt-a as ctrl-a? Sad
Now I have to have "ą" letter in clipboard and remember to paste it instead of pressing altgr-a.

Do other standard edit controls behave this way?  Notepad, for instance?

No, only Anuran.
Whole Windows XP SP3 is Polish with most commonly used Polish Programmers Keyboard setup.
Sometimes, rarely some programs (I had similar problem with English version of MSOffice, and Notepad++) have problems with altgr, usually when they use hotkeys with alt.
Maybe it's the same this time that Anurans edit control use those. But I turned off any hotkeys in Anuran but it didn't help.

Also strangely it started to put 5 new lines, after one enter keypress. After I switched it to ctrl+enter as new line it was ok. After changing it back to enter as newline it's again 5 new lines :/
Even more strangely after restarting Anuran it came back to normal smiley
Halloween or sth? Wink

Suggestions:

1. Pop-Up Wisdom Book Format Export of the Texts

2. Forms (when the note pane opens there are some default texts already)

3. Smart Time
      -timer doesn't move unless the PC is active and not idle
      -note doesn't open if a certain mb of space is being used
      -spaced repetitive time (say a user sets it to 5 min./30 min./2 hrs. everytime they leave a note blank, the next pop-up comes up sooner and everytime they write something long the note comes up much later until it reaches the max time or vice versa)

4. Archive/Skip to next log button on the pop-up pane
      I don't really know how logs work but I'm more of a copy paster then a searcher so often times I tend to put single entries into separate text files rather than one huge note.

5. Option to open pane in full screen (not maximized) - could work in conjunction with spaced repetitive time

6. Option to send to twitter or facebook

This might be overstepping your intended use of program, but what about adding the functionality to have separate timers for specific user created prompts?

For instance:

-Daily Diary
-What is your weight today?
-How much cheese did Mouser eat?
-etc..

Obviously, if this was to be added a way to differentiate between the logs would be needed as well.

Hi jeromy.  Welcome to the site.  Regarding your requests, I'd have to agree and say that it would over-complicate the program.   Sad

Not necessarily. You could just have multiple instances of Anuran but one single AnuViewer directory collecting those logs.
