FARR Plugins and Aliases / TinyEV missing the last Everything result
« on: December 29, 2020, 08:04 AM »
I am trying out TinyEV and rather quickly found an issue.  I have a search that shows 7 results in the Everything native results list, but FARR shows only 6 while claiming 7 results in its status bar.

A freeware program named "1by1" might be worth a look:

I am not sure it handles tagging, but claims to make it quite easy to scroll through files and listen to them.

Code Browser is a folding text editor, designed to hierarchically structure any kind of text file and especially source code. It makes navigation through source code faster and easier: https://tibleiz.net/code-browser/

That looks like an extremely useful tool, one I will download and try out.  Thanks for pointing it out.

I have a couple of Logitech G602 mice and love them.  I find the longer size to fit my hand well.  The longer right button makes perfect sense, as human hands have middle fingers that are longer than the index fingers.  The longer right button fits so well, and makes so much sense, one is left wondering why this feature is missing from almost all computer mice. 

I thought I would love all the extra buttons, but in practice I find I use them very little.  But I do like being able to reprogram the buttons, and have found that programming the two index finger side buttons for PgUp and PgDn is extremely useful.  And, the programming stays with the mouse, so if I move it from one machine to another my custom functionality travels with it.

My only wish for the G602 would be for Bluetooth connectivity to eliminate the little USB dongle.  Old-style USB ports are few on most laptops nowadays.  However, after wrestling with the quirks of a Bluetooth mouse, I do like the reliability of the USB wireless dongle.  It works, always, unlike the Bluetooth mouse I have tried.  (In all fairness, the mouse or this particular laptop might be at fault.)

Well, since I have not yet posted in this thread, this is as good a time as any.

I am Keith, from southeast Michigan, though I am fortunate enough to be able spend winter seasons in southwest Florida.

For a living I have been a database software developer for over 15 years, specializing in the Progress OpenEdge development environment.  I have been fortunate enough to be able to work remotely on a contract basis for a number of years.  However, with the current COVD-19 panic and likely recession to follow, I have no idea where my career path will lead next.  I should take this downtime as a chance to diversify.  Python, for one, is intriguing and seems to be high in demand.

I enjoy programming, and got my college degree in Computer Science.  I am old enough to have done a good bit of Pascal programming as part of my degree program, and I have to admit I miss Pascal.

Interests include sports car racing (watching, not driving), especially IMSA and Formula 1; photography; and computers in general.

So, that's me in a nutshell.
