Thanks for the post :D Ordered 2-for-1 Super Talent Pico from newegg.

It seems to me this tool is only helpful if one is using geek.Menu. Is that correct?

cycling (road and mountain), rock climbing (indoor and out), bowling, and darts

I use an AutoHotkey script to handle startup. Be warned that it clears any current entries in the registry and startup folder.  First it asks if you want to run startup apps (all or nothing). Then it loops though a customizable startup folder (on my machine... D:\_Links\Startup) launching all shortcuts. I do this to ensure that one place controls all my startup apps. I also have FARR indexing the same folder to launch any of the same apps after startup.

#SingleInstance FORCE

MsgBox, 4, AutoHotkey Start, Whould like to run startup apps?, 10
IfMsgBox, No

;;; Clean reg
RegDelete, HKCU, SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
RegDelete, HKLM, Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
RegWrite, REG_SZ, HKCU, Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run, Start, %A_ScriptFullPath%

;;; Clean start menu
FileDelete, %A_StartMenuCommon%\Programs\Startup\*.*
FileDelete, %A_StartMenu%\Programs\Startup\*.*

;;; Open apps
Loop, D:\_Links\Startup\*.lnk
    Run, %A_LoopFileFullPath%

Thanks for the link! Looks like a very promising tool.

General Software Discussion / Re: Outlook 2007 isn't so bad
« on: September 04, 2008, 11:07 PM »
My work flushed possibly $100k+ when migrating from GroupWise to Outlook. The IT department totally botched the archive migration. I never cried so much about an email program. GroupWise is fantastic. People were always telling me about features that Outlook does that GroupWise does not. For every feature I was happy to explain how or where to find it in GroupWise. It is function over form.

GroupWise allowed the sender to view when recipients opened an email without the silly read receipt. It also allows a single rule to filter both the inbox and sentbox. Outlook requires two rules. Anyone that hates this as much as I do, I am happy to share my custom VBA used in place of the lame rule support in Outlook.

It could be the way IT setup exchange but the auto delete sucks. They delete any emails from the server that are 60 days from the time sent or received. However, Outlook auto archives based on the last modified date. So is very possible to lose emails. As a result, I have to set auto archive to every day so emails are not at risk of deletion. I do keep my archive pst files on a network drive (Microsoft does not support this), but it cannot be opened on two machines at once (GroupWise allowed the archives to be open on many machines at once). Have no access to it via webmail (GroupWise had the same issue).

So with all these archive emails how do I perform a search? One archive at a time. Outlook will not search across multiple pst files. Groupwise had one search for everything.

I will give one point to Outlook for the ability to open many pst files. GroupWise only allowed one archive to be opened at a time.

Do not even get me started on the Exchange vs Outlook address book. Why can they not be one in the same? And why is it such a pain to give email access to your personal Outlook address book? Control Panel > Mail > Address Books > Add > Outlook Address Book. Open outlook > right-click Contacts folder > select Properties > click tab Outlook Address Book > check Show this folder as an e-mail Address Book.

What about the default profile dialog box? IT has the computers locked down so it does not allow one to set the default profile. Because ever machine has multiple mail profiles left from the migration, every time you open Outlook you have to select the Exchange profile (thank you AutoHotkey).

You call this progress? LOL

Windows Vista has the option to add a Folder, Folder name, and/or Folder path. Another option is to install a shell extension that adds a item to the context menu allowing you to open the folder or copy path to clipboard.

Been using a small program I wrote in VB a while back to copy path to clipboard.

I am currently running v2.30.31 and find the performance has much improved on my machine. Thank you, mouser.

Notice that the Philips has a panel resolution of 640 x 480. The is the best pc resolution you can use without the text looking like worms. If you are sure about a TV Tuner/LCD, check out Vizio. I belief they are the best deal out there. Their 20 in has a panel resolution of 1366 x 768.

I apologize for not replying to the above comments. I have had some performance issues with FARR (searching history is slow) and am currently evaluating Lanchy  :(

FARR Plugin: Clock is now officially released using GPLv3. Do as you wish with it  :D

Demo shows that Direct Folders replaces the Explorer context menu. Not much of an advantage...

FARR Plugins and Aliases / New Script FARR Plugin: Clock
« on: February 17, 2008, 11:02 PM »
This plugin displays the current date/time in a variety of formats.


List of commands:
cl : list current date/time



Special thanks goes to ecaradec for Fscript.

I want to create a FARR plugin. I haven't decided what language to use but I don't want to spend any money on VS. The issue is that VS C++ 2008 Express edition does not include MFC. Is MFC required? If so could someone (vitalyb/mouser) send a compiled dll of vitalyb's plugin wrapper?

clipboard bug
When using %clipboard% in an alias command, as per docs, the var is not replaced with the contents of the clipboard.

Is there is difference between $$c and %clipboard%?

IconAnyFolder v0.1 - First Release (written in C#)

- a user prompt for specifying directory
- an option loop recursively into subdirectories
- a cleanup option that runs through and deletes all desktop.ini files, or removes the icon entries in them
- If the first icon resource (exe) the script encounters does not have an icon present, move to the next resource.

  • Select menu File > New > Mail Message
  • From new email window, select menu Format > HTML
  • Select menu Insert > Picture...
  • Select image, keep in mind "File of type" on bottom of dialog box should be set to the required format
  • Click OK

I will happily convert to a desktop Visual Basic app. I like doctorfrog ideas and can easily implement. Does anyone have problem with a .net requirement?

I created a VBScript awhile back that does something like this. Let me know what you think. I am happy to revisit it and make updates.
