LaunchBar Commander / Hotkey commnads via icons
« on: October 14, 2009, 07:15 AM »

Is it possiable to have a icon on the bar that will run a hotkey trigger instead of pressing the hotkey.

e.g. I have a notes program (stickies) that when you press Win+S opens a new sticky is it possiable to add this hotkey to the tool bar so you just click a icon and it does the hotkey for you, i would find this very good as have alot of programs that use hotkeys but would much perfer to click a icon that would emulate the pressing of keys.

i have alot of programs that i have hotkeys set too but much perfer to just click a icon for it.

General Software Discussion / title bar shortcuts
« on: April 23, 2008, 05:13 AM »

I am looking for a program, and searched the net loads, that i can add custom programs to the right click menu on a title bar, or even little icons across it that allow me to add custom programs.

mainly as some programs i use dont have menu's there just a title bar, would be handy to have a menu there so can load notepad or something else quickly

Anyone know any good active directory tools.

We use AD at work for changing peoples passwords, i wondered if anyone has come across any utils that make it alot easier too use, and locks you out of stuff.

I used my own MMC for a while its ok, but its rubbish in vista.

General Software Discussion / Asset Inventory Software
« on: August 30, 2007, 03:48 AM »
Hello all.

Just a question mainly, Im guessing most people who use this forum, prob Work in IT, in some way or another, or may know of something helpful.

I work for a University in the UK, at the moment, We use a manual Input Inventory system, which i do, we have around 3000 PC's that have been manually inputted, over the years.

I am currently Looking for some sort of inventory management system, that Traces the network for Devices, and displays the details on a webbased page or a cilent software.

I have looked at the following so far:
Landesk  - Rough cost it would cost £28k
Centennial - Quoted £26k

Now were a poor uni, we could only afford around 6k, Does anyone know of any such product that is good for inventory tracking but is cheap!

Ive looked for open source stuff but cant find much.

What do you use at work?

General Software Discussion / Download Managers
« on: June 14, 2007, 11:00 AM »
Hi all, Ive done a search and found info about the download managers, but there so many and cant work out what the best one is for my needs.

can anyone suggest one, that has following features:

*.zip to Zip folder  With no prompting, So on a site you click the zip, it does not come up saying where do want to save this file, it just downloads stright away and puts into a folder called Zips

*.exe Files, has Prompting but allows me to chosse a catagory from list, for what folder i want to save it in, Not browsing my computer for the right folder.

Websites support, so if download from same website, the files will be saved to the website folder no prompting.

Opera Does this sort off, But its not perfect.

I dont care about speed etc, The main things is you click and nothing prompts you and nothing loads up, just does it and adds to folder

General Software Discussion / Help finding a program.
« on: April 16, 2007, 10:38 AM »
for the last month or so i been looking for a program, and downloaded so many programs and none of them has been what i wanted.

what i need and why.

A webpage making software, that you can use to make a 1 page site, with some txt at the top and then say 5 images below it, Then able to publish to the web in a seperate folder, then in the soruce code all the img html lines are full url's not
<img src="boat.gif" alt="Big Boat">
should be
<img src="" alt="Big Boat">
That way i could be able to copy the source code and paste into turbo lister for ebay.

Ive tested alot of ebay programs, and only one i found that does this is spoonfeeder but its to hard for my dad to use.

At the moment, He scans photos in, Uploads via ftp to my host, then opens NVU and types out desc, then alt tab to website where all photos are then right click copy location then paste into nvu.. its a progress that takes ages, has anyone seen webpage maker that would publish true paths to the net.. would solve alot of work. he uploads around 10 ebay items aday, and mum does ebay too so 20 between them. its there job and works well, but slow, maybe they could do 15 each if there was such a program

Ive asked of NVU sites and other sites, but never get a good answer, and as this forum is my sorta forum full of app people im sure you may have come accross such a program

Post New Requests Here / Idea: Help with small simple program
« on: April 16, 2007, 09:39 AM »
I been searching the internet for 3days now trying to look for a simple program, that will run on windows 2000

That would Pop up a search box where you type in a word, then it searches a Txt file or Xml file or CSv file, and brings back to the screen the line of next from the search name.


Txt file looks like this

s32452135 4503205
s20034423 20304955
s0209422 2939923
and so on

Xml looks like this of same txt file

So i got the file, Now just want a simple seach that would look for required number - s32452135 and then it would display 4503205 in a txt box that can be Copied.

I thought using Xml would make it easier as you search in number and show Dob

But i cant seem to find anything on the net that helps me with this.

needs to be program if possiable to make it easier for users to use, But html popup would do too.

Anyone able to help.

also got other text files with info i want displayed in a program.

i have Visual Basic express on pc, but its been 10years since i used a programming lang

Hello all,

Not sure if anyone else gets this problem:
Multi-monitor setup to stand alone mode. Some applications just insist on starting up off the screen.

I have and been searching the web with a fix.

I came across this program, Which allows you to force programs to load on the other screen.

Name: Force Window Visible
URL: http://www.compendiu...rcedisplay/index.php

Just posting incase anyone else has this problem.

(Searched forum could not see any other posts with this type of program)
