N.A.N.Y. 2018 / NANY 2018 Release: SubAHK
« on: January 01, 2018, 02:09 AM »
NANY 2018 Entry Information

Application Name SubAHK
Supported OSes Windows 7 (Probably works, but not tested, on Windows XP/Vista/8/10)
Web Page Website
Download Link Download
Author Jody Holmes (Skwire Empire)

Description
Subsonic desktop client. I’ve run my own personal Subsonic server for many years and make use of several different clients depending on platform. However, none have the sort of easy playlist manipulation I want, so I started writing SubAHK.

  • To make use of SubAHK, you must run, or have access to, a fully licensed Subsonic server (or use one of the license-not-needed forks mentioned below). That said, please consider running the official Subsonic product and supporting its author with a paid Premium License.
  • SubAHK is not feature complete at this time. This release of SubAHK only has the playlist manipulation features I wanted. That is, currently, it doesn’t even support playback of files. I do plan to further develop SubAHK as time allows.
  • SubAHK makes use of the official Subsonic API. Therefore, I have no idea if it works with any of the Subsonic forks out there such as MadSonic, AirSonic, etc. If these forks support the official Subsonic API, they should work. No promises, though.

Usage
Installation
Download the zip file and extract its contents into a new folder.  Run SubAHK.exe and choose Options from the menu.  Enter your server credentials and off you go.

Uninstallation
Exit the application and delete the folder you unzipped it to.

NANY 2018 Entry Information

Application Name WHAT (Window Hotkey Activator Tool)
Supported OSes Windows 7 (Probably works, but not tested, on Windows XP/Vista/8/10)
Web Page Website
Download Link Download
Author Jody Holmes (Skwire Empire)

Description
Assign hotkeys to activate/focus windows.  This was a recent request by stisev on 2017-12-20; the original thread was here.

Screenshots

options.png

Usage
Installation
Download the zip file and extract its contents into a new folder.  Run What.exe to start the application.

Notes
  • The window matching comprises the following criteria: process name, window title, and window class.  You will almost certainly have to play around a bit with the text to get certain windows to activate and, even then, some may not.  Furthermore, you do not need to use all three criterion for a given hotkey.  Don't be afraid to experiment.
  • While the add/edit hotkey dialog is open, all hotkeys are disabled.  They are enabled after you click the save button or close the add/edit hotkey dialog.
  • Checkboxes in the main list enable and disable individual hotkeys.
  • You can assign the same hotkey to multiple entries and it will activate all the windows in top-down order.  You can easily change the order in the list.
  • Check out the Options menu for a few usability options.
  • The hotkey selection GUI is such that you can specify just about any combination of keys, mouse buttons, and modifiers.  Go crazy.

Uninstallation
Exit the application and delete the folder you unzipped it to.

N.A.N.Y. 2017 / NANY 2017 Release: sPinger
« on: December 31, 2016, 11:45 PM »

Application Name sPinger
Supported OSes Windows 7 (Probably works, but not tested, on Windows XP/8/Vista/10)

Description
If you’re up for it, some background is in order for this application so click the Spoiler button if interested.  If not, skip to the TL;DR section below.

Spoiler
In a network operations environment, there was always a need to quickly ping large numbers of IP addresses. The best application, by far, that I found is an app called HELIUM PINGer. Even though it’s an older app, it is a truly multi-threaded, outstandingly fast application that works extremely well. It was indispensable when I worked in network operations several years ago and I still keep it in my network app toolbox. If you need such an app, look no further. Another application in this vein is the professionally done PingInfoView by the incomparable Nir Sofer. I keep that installed as well.

Now, on to sPinger. During my tenure in network operations (2000-2010), I wrote a suite of applications, in my spare time, that my group used. One of these was a mass pinger, like the above, with a few extra features that we used extensively.

The first was the ability to quickly ping entire lists of subnets for only the reachable addresses. This allowed to you create a basic baseline of reachable customers and devices before, say, making a network change. You could easily see if your changes, in realtime, had any adverse affects in regards to reachability.
Another feature was in regards to IP subnet generation. Even though HELIUM PINGer has a subnet generator, you can only generate one subnet’s worth of addresses at a time. We needed the ability to simply paste in a list of subnets and quickly generate the addresses for all of them.
My applications are written in AutoHotkey so the main drawback of my original mass pinger app was that it was single-threaded because AutoHotkey itself is single-threaded. For DonationCoder’s NANY 2017 promotion, I wanted to see if I could rewrite that app with some pseudo-multi-threading and I’ve accomplished that. However, there is no way my app can compete with HELIUM PINGer when it comes to CPU usage when multiple threads are in use. Again, if you need an app like this for heavy-duty use, just get HELIUM PINGer already. That said, the multi-thread functionality is entirely configurable within sPinger, so you should be able to find a happy medium. As a final treat, I’ve made the list icons configurable and have included lots of fun themes I put together (see screenshot below).


TL;DR:
Ping multiple IP addresses and hostnames with fun icon themes. Features:

Pseudo multi-threaded.
Quickly generate lists of all addresses from a list of subnets.
Quickly generate lists of only pingable addresses from a list of subnets.  This feature is not available on Windows 8 & Windows 10.
DNS scan mode to quickly retrieve hostnames from IP addresses.
Fun icon themes in the list to show good, bad, and expired pings.
Configurable list — colours, fonts, etc.
