the new T-Clock version is really cool! :)-freaky44 (January 06, 2011, 12:14 PM)

Thank you.


But i have two feature suggestions:

- I use the drop to recycle bin feature, and it works great! It would be great to have the option to see the size and number of files of the recycle bin in the Mouse-over Tooltip Text. (e.g. "10 Files, 135 MB").-freaky44 (January 06, 2011, 12:14 PM)

Hm... There is grand potential for this to lag badly if there are a large number of files in the recycling bin. But I can try playing with it for a bit and see what happens.


- I would love to have the option to set the action in mouse-properties to "open files/folders (with command-line switches)". Just like you can do it in the "Menu Item Details". Then i could empty/open the recycle bin with just one click.-freaky44 (January 06, 2011, 12:14 PM)

Sounds reasonable enough, I'll look into it.


Little Bug report:
Middle Mouse Button Actions doesn´t work.-freaky44 (January 06, 2011, 12:14 PM)

That's actually a "Known Issue" ... That I forgot about... I'll have to go through my notes and see what the original issue was/is. I'm thinking that the middle button/mouse wheel was asigned to bring up a task list in Windows 7 by default so I'd given up on/disabled it at one point. But it isn't doing it now (it could have been just me...) so I've not a clue. *Shrug* I'll look into it ... Thanks for the reminder.

A solution for the lagging problem could be, when the recycle bin is checked on a regularly base (e.g. every 10 seconds) and these information are written to a file. Then the informations have only to be read from this file on mouseover. It´s just an idea. I´m not a programmer.

In "T-Clock x64 v1.01" the middle button worked under Win 7.

TO:  Stoic Joker

I'm the guy who did this...

http://www.greggdeselms.com/tclock.html

...and you and I have had brief (and pleasant) email chat about it in the past... though I'm having trouble remembering how it ended.  I think we both just got busy and never completed it... but, again, I can't remember.

You've mentioned/complained in this thread, and back in our email chat, that your hosting is unreliable.  And it's true that I, for one, can't get at your site half the time, for whatever reason.

Interestingly, today, I tried to get at it and it failed; but succeeded when I used a proxy.  That's a new one.  Any light you can shed on that would be helpful.  It was only from deft Googling that I stumbled onto this thread today.

The reason I'm posting is to ask if you need more reliable hosting; and to make my official offer (and I think I offered it in our previous email chat, too) to let you have some hosting for free.  I mean, your gift of T-Clock to the world is really nice, and so the least I can do is offer you a free hosting account on one of my servers...

...which are located in the big Peak10 data center in Jacksonville...

http://www.peak10.com/jacksonville/default.asp

...and so, believe me, it would be reliable.

It would be a standard cPanel type account... nothing fancy.... but fully functional in every possible way.

My only proviso would be that it would remain free for only as long as it doesn't use-up so much bandwidth that said bandwidth starts showing-up as its own line item on my monthly data center bill.  At that point, we'd have to discuss your defraying the cost somehow...

...though, frankly, since it would be at my wholesale price (I'd only charge you that... with no profit to me), you'd get, for $5 or $10 or $15 per month (whatever it came out to) that which any other hosting provider would charge three to five times as much.  Or, if the bandwidth was mostly just from all the downloading, it would be easy to find an alternative method of providing downloading bandwidth... from such as cNet or SnapFiles or MediaFire or whatever.  But we can cross that bridge if and when we come to it.

I'm not, to be candid, really in the hosting business as my means of income.  I only have professional servers in a rack in a big, high-end data center, with cPanel -- and am as serious about it as if I were in the hosting business -- because back in the late 1990's I wanted a way to help-out my management consulting clients who needed web sites and hosting, and I got tired of referring away the business.

I've had servers (with cPanel) going in that data center (er... well... in a data center in New Jersey, at first, but then in Jacksonville) for pushing 12 years, now.  And now, ever since my ministry (of agency and advocacy to the homeless, disabled vets, the elderly, the prostituted, recent parolees, and others similarly in need)...

http://tinyurl.com/deselms-card

...has gone pretty much full-time, I kinda' just give away the hosting (and domain names... see the next paragraph) at my wholesale cost, no profit to me, to worthy not-for-profit organizations and others who are for whatever reason deserving.  And I figure that your gift to the world of T-Clock makes you deserving.

I'm also a domain name reseller for one of world's largest ICANN-approved registrars... I'm seriously like... literally... their reseller number 6 or something like that... signed-up right after they first launched their reseller program back in... geez... maybe 1999, or 2000, or something like that.  So I'm kinda' grandfathered-in to the absolutely lowest prices it offers...

...which I'd happily pass along to you, if you wanted to move your domain name over to an account, directly on the registrar's web site, but "beneath" my reseller umbrella (so that I may set your pricing down to my wholesale price, rounded-up to the nearest $.99, plus the registrar's mandatory roughly $1.30 in credit card processing and whatever other fees), which will allow me to charge you only around ten bucks a year for your domain name, if you want... again, no profit to me.

And I can pretty much guarantee that your site's IP address will not be on some kind of blacklist... which is what I'm now wondering might be the reason why I can almost never get to your site normally, yet I was able to get to it via a proxy (something I only tried for the first time) today (I'd have to look it up).  I'm a friend of the anti-spam community...

http://www.spamlinks.net (see the reference to me at the absolute bottom of the page)

...so I can pretty much guarantee that none of my IP addresses are in any blacklists; and/or that if any of them end-up in one, I know how to get it out.

I'm not sure I ever explained it all to you in past emails as I just have, here, so maybe that's why you didn't take me up on it.  Then again, maybe I hadn't gotten to the point in our emails that I had even offered it yet... I just can't remember.

But I'm tired of people writing to me, in their emails thanking me for hosting an alternative place from which to download T-Clock, that they just couldn't make your site work.  So, I'm offering, now, to help you with that, if you're interested.  According to my server logs, I've already been hosting tons of T-Clock downloads on the unofficial page linked-to at the beginning of this posting; so I'm sure it wouldn't be that much more bandwidth to just let you have a full-blown hosting account -- at least for T-Clock, and maybe even for everything you do -- in a shared hosting account on that same server.

Let me know.

Keep up the good work, in any case!

Peace.

superboyac:
T-Clock is awesome!  Thanks Stoic!  I may...er...have a list of very particular feature requests soon!  I used to use betaclock, but it's not being developed anymore and there were a few minor issues I had with it.

Thank you, ...But we have to finish your other project, before I can get back on this one ;)

Currently T-Clock (development) is scattered across 3 different projects as I try to get various things (requested features etc.) figured out.
