Find And Run Robot / Re: Powershell problems
« on: September 08, 2021, 07:24 AM »
Sooooo yesterday I could not do it and today, five minutes after writing the post, I find a solution.....

I looked for powershell and run it from farr, and it worked, so I rigth clicked to create an alias and added the command afterwards.
It works like a charm!

I just type the solution in case someone finds this problem!

Find And Run Robot / Powershell problems
« on: September 08, 2021, 07:15 AM »
Hello everybody, I am having a weird problem.

I want to create a list of aliases to use ssh on powershell ( because security reasons, there are systems I need to use via local port tunneled via SSH). The problem is I have quite a few and thougth about ordering them in an alias.

As an example, let's think I wanna run this:
powershell -noExit -Command "ssh"

If I run it (Windows + R, run) it works and shows the screen where ssh informs me that I need to enter some options.
If I open FARR, and type
run powershell -noExit -Command "ssh"
I get a command not found error.... (this also happens on an alias, using shellexec)

Any ideas? I am quite lost with this behaviour....

Here you can find it for 30 GBP

This gadget made my XBMC work like a charm. This allows my Zotac miniPC to receive the keystrokes on my TV remote control, allowing me to use my normal remote to manage my computer.

Out of the box, it worked with no further config after installing the drivers provided. The default mapping of the remote was quite good (I did not find the need to customize it in a couple of months), but it can be fully customized to suit your need (here you have more information on this).

The best point of it? It has made my media center really simple to use... even my ganny know how to use it! No more need of other remote and (IMHO) much more elegant than having universal remotes...

Also, it is quite small and its powered by USB (image for reference, next to my wife's iPod and the included cables):

I bought a Zotac mini PC. Atom microprocessor ensures a low power consumption.
Zotac + MediaMonkey (huge music library to manage) + XBMC = AWESOME.

Also, as a remote, I use my TV Remote (http://www.pulse-eig...dmi-cec-adapter.aspx), so it is quite user friendly, you do not need to swith remote, just go to the HDMI port of the media center, and keep using it.

This was a quite cost-effective solution (300€ Zotac + 100€ 4TB USB3.0 hard disk + 30€ USB - CEC adapter), and everything works together like a charm. The guys of Pulse Eight also provide a pre-compiled version of XBMC with their drivers & plugins to ensure an easy operation.

I would go with FAKE ROASTBEEF!!!
Easy & Fast, but looks like if you had been all the day in the kitchen...
* A roastbeef (the piece of meat of your choice, I do not know how to call meat pieces on English, but google says go with High tenderloin, I would call it "lomo alto")
* Onions, about 5 large onions would suffice
* Salt, white & black peeper, garlic
* Sweet wine (I love it with Porto's wine, but my girlfriend prefers it with some Muscato wine)
* A pressure cooker
* 45 minutes or so...

We will cook everything on the pressure cooker, so we reuse the same oil and clean less later ;)

Pour some oil and quick fry the garlic. Remove the garlic and keep the oil warm.
Then you pour salt & peeper on the meat (as much as you like) and sear the meat with the oil (do not cook it, seal/sear/brown the piece, it must be slightly cooked in the outside, but totally raw on the inside).

Remove the meat and, add the onions (cut it in cubes) and let it cook. When it becomes brown, add the meat again, add the wine (about 1/2 - 3/4 liter, depends on what do you require for your cooker), some grains of white peeper and close it for the time your cooker requires.

When it finish, remove the meat and beat the liquid left (this would make the onion give more consistency to the sauce and remove big pieces) and it is ready.

Do not forget to hide the pressure cooker and put it in the oven before your guests arrive, so it will look like you did it on the oven!!

Congrats for the good work!

On my side it is difficult to exercise (interesting times ahead), so not using the lift, parking further from the office, and giving a walk is all I can do...

I'm in (I did not see the thread before...), but because I began with this 3 weeks ago, this is a great way of motivating myself...

A little late to the party, but I'll explain how I do it:
i) I use FARR to launch, and have a couple of directories with links to tools (to make FARR run faster)
ii) When I want to search a file, when i remember part of the name, i use everything

How would I like FARR to index? Easy, I would love if FARR scanned the directories configured on startup (or maybe a subset of them, a check to cache...) so my tools folders would allways be indexed and work blazing fast, and when there is no match (or I dealy on clicking) it'll keep on searching on other folders...
