General Software Discussion / UXP Mail&News client
« on: September 14, 2018, 02:44 AM »
From PaleMoon forum:

Since we've got a solid platform to build on now and people have started using it to create their own alternative clients based on it, I'd like to draw the attention to a donation collection effort that is currently on-going to develop and launch a fully-capable e-mail, usenet news and feed client building on UXP and being based on Thunderbird prior to their descent into the limited realm of WebExtensions and "modern Mozilla".

If the Thunderbird Council will not listen to what its users need, then we will!

Please see here for details about this effort and how to chip in/donate. Tobin, our Communicator specialist and prior contributor to the SeaMonkey project will be spearheading this effort. Of course everything will be Open Source under the MPL, as usual.

This effort will directly replace FossaMail for the gap it has filled in the past. Despite pleas to revive it, I simply don't have the time to do so. Instead, please support this new client!

Thanks for your attention.

I supported the project.

Apologies if I posted this in the wrong area - please move as see fit.

General Software Discussion / Microsoft and Skype atrocity
« on: July 12, 2017, 05:40 AM »
I am at loss of words.

First this:

Then this:

And then, few days ago Skype stopped working for me on my devices using their own god damn OS, namely Nokia Lumia 920 and Surface RT. The only reason I got those in the first place was that I thought Microsoft's products and services would work better. And they did, until they started messing around. Oh boy. Oh boy, not entertained when something I paid for stops working and I am told that "huh, tough luck?".

Doesn't really put a lot of trust in Microsoft and its new direction. Great, great.

Living Room / Email Naming Convention for Personal Website
« on: July 23, 2016, 10:32 AM »
I've been contemplating a personal domain for some years now, but until now it wasn't justified by the volume of work I did. Since it did significantly increase this year, I finally bought it a week or two ago.

Besides learning WordPress by doing all kinds of silly mistakes, I got stuck on ridiculous, but important thing - how should I name my e-mail?

I do a lot of e-mailing, back-and-forth, and on different professional levels. Start-ups don't really care, but corporate clients do.

Did some research, and I definitely don't like naming it like:

[email protected]
[email protected]
[email protected]
[email protected]

I kind of liked:

[email protected] (favourite)
[email protected]
[email protected]

My domain is first letter of my name followed by my full surname and then .com.

I'd like to hear your experiences. What did you use, or encountered, that you've found professional and thought it sounds good?

General Software Discussion / Mozilla Thunderbird Cheatsheet
« on: June 30, 2016, 09:34 AM »
Since Mozilla Thunderbird is my main client and I use it everyday, I decided to finally learn some proper keyboard shortcuts. After digging through the net I couldn't really find a nice printable list, so I made one myself.

Feel free to use it. Download link » (

General Software Discussion / Problem with AHK time stamping
« on: April 17, 2016, 02:53 AM »
I am using AHK script for text expansion and I've run into some problems with time stamps. Up to now I've been using only one time stamp (date, first one in the code), but after I added two more I messed up everything.

Code excerpt:

FormatTime, CurrentDate,, yyyy-MM-dd ; This is one type of the date format
SendInput, %CurrentDate%

FormatTime, CurrentStartTime,, yyyy-MM-dd    hh:mm:ss ; This is one type of the date format
SendInput, %CurrentStartTime%    START

FormatTime, CurrentFinishTime,, yyyy-MM-dd    hh:mm:ss ; This is one type of the date format
SendInput, %CurrentFinishTime%    FINISH

They generate:

2016-04-172016-04-17,   09:51:55    START2016-04-17,   09:51:55    FINISH
2016-04-17    09:51:59    START2016-04-17    09:51:59    FINISH
2016-04-17    09:52:01    FINISH

While I would like them to generate:

2016-04-17    09:51:59    START
2016-04-17    09:52:01    FINISH

What did I do wrong?

Find And Run Robot / FARR and Windows apps
« on: February 04, 2016, 02:33 PM »
My first idea was to find where the apps are installed and simply point FARR to that location so I can launch what I want, but alas, it is a big hassle to open that folder. And once you revert security setting FARR cannot reach that folder anymore.

Any elegant way for using FARR to run Windows apps?

General Software Discussion / Adding silence to audio track?
« on: January 09, 2016, 06:49 AM »
I have several hour-long audio tracks to which I have to add silence. It should go 30 seconds of music, 30 seconds of silence, and so on, until the end of track.

My first try was Audacity, which can add silence, but I couldn't figure it out how to add it to the whole track in same interval.

Any recommendations?

Interesting project. On it is summarised as a virtual machine that brings LibreOffice Online and ownCloud server together. Excerpt from Collabora's press release:

Collabora, the architects of LibreOffice Online, are proud to announce the release of CODE (Collabora Online Development Edition), a distribution of LibreOffice Online and ownCloud Server. The purpose of CODE is to give interested developers from any field an easy way to get early access to the very latest untested feature additions and updates to LibreOffice Online, in order to enable them to develop, test, and contribute.

This release also marks the start of a partnership between Collabora and ownCloud, the company behind the world’s most popular open source enterprise file sync and share (EFSS) software. The partnership will deliver a combined commercial solution during 2016, based on an integration between Collabora CloudSuite – a trio of Online, Mobile and Desktop office productivity combined with ownCloud Server.

Clipboard Help+Spell / CHS suddenly stopped working
« on: October 26, 2015, 03:33 AM »
CHS suddenly stopped working, with weird errors (can't access index table). This is how main windows looks like:

CHS 001.png

When I try to verify, optimize, etc, I get following:

CHS 002.png

When I try to restore from backup, I get following:

CHS 003.png

Tried re-installing, didn't help.

Great game on sale. For those who haven't played it - it is challenging, you die a lot, it is completely non-linear, you are free to develop your character as you wish, and great combat system. It also has good replayability.
