Pretty useful tool for enhancing open/save file dialogs. The free version is fairly functional - I upgraded to the Pro version as the license would let me use it at work. :)

Find And Run Robot / One Alias - multiple search terms?
« on: July 13, 2009, 10:17 PM »

Quick question - I have an alias to a url that I'd like to have show up in the search results when I type one of two words - let's say 'apple' and 'orange' for arguments sake.

If I make the Alias Group name "Apple Orange" then as I type 'apple' in the search box my alias will appear, but if I type 'orange' it doesn't.

If I add a regex match of "apple|orange" then typing 'orange' does match but only when completely typed ie typing 'orang' wouldn't cause my alias to be listed.

Short of adding "ora?n?g?e?" as my regex match, or having two different aliases (ie one for apple, one for orange), is it possible to have FARR search for partial matches within an Alias name similar to what it does for file name matching? eg a file called "Apple Orange.txt" will appear when I type 'oran'.


Find And Run Robot / Alias with a space in the name not working
« on: June 08, 2008, 03:09 AM »
I recently added a simple alias for my bank's website containing a name and a result (ie no regex).

I discovered that if the name I gave it (the alias) was only one word eg "Bank" then I could type part of that name eg "ban", FARR would show the bank alias in the dropdown, and would launch the website if I selected it.

If, however, the alias name had a space in it eg "Bank Online" then when I typed "ban", FARR would again show the alias in the dropdown but if I clicked it it would just expand what I'd typed to "Bank Online" but wouldn't actually launch the website.

I tried this with a number of other aliases and there was definitely a difference between aliases with a space (or multiple words I guess) in the name and those without.

NOTE: this is not the case if you add a regex to the alias. eg in the case above I could get "Bank Online" to work correctly if I simply added the regex pattern "bank online". Given the pattern was considered 'optional' I wonder if this is an issue or I'm using FARR incorrectly...?

General Software Discussion / Detect network computer boot?
« on: August 07, 2006, 03:54 AM »
I'm looking for any software/tools that will allow my computer to 'sense' that a particular PC on my home network has just booted and that will then trigger a particular script/app to run (in my case, copy the latest daily backup over to that machine).

Anybody know of something that does this?
