Actually that is not what I am looking for. That just changes the file times like the Linux touch command

What I am looking for is an app that records (literally) the file modification times and keeps some sort of database about the files. No I wont keep a record of windows system, this is just for project purposes.


I am looking for an application for (win or lin) that can record file modification times for a given folder recursively? I just want to be able to see when the files have changed within given period of time.

It can be a console app, gui app etc it does not matter as long as it can efficiently watch and record mod times per file.


From that blog post, things sounds quite reasonable.

If there aren't other "privacy issues" than that, and there aren't going to be, then imho there's nothing to fuzz about. And since it's opensores, people can keep watch... but oh yeah, <tinfoilhat>google could do different builds than from the publicly available source</tinfoilhat>

Very true. The tinfoil hat wearing side of me is adopting a wait and see approach - just being prudent. I just want to give Google time to clean up the EULA and smarter people than me time to determine what is, or what is not, being done with the data that Google may or may not be mining...

Were you able to decide on what to do with Google? Now that the time of the benefit of doubt is over regarding the latest guardian releases.

**Ehtyar boots f0d man out of the tin-foil-hat-brigade and inducts kartal as an honorary member.

I think Kartal should be President actually, he's way too paranoid to be an Honorary Member :P

I also use NoScript and cookie blockers.

If you're going to deal with Google then at least deal with them on your terms and use Customize Google.

Uhmm I think that I was right about my concerns 4 years ago, now that it is all spilled out.

Clipboard Help+Spell / Utf support?

Is it possible to get utf working with this app? It seems like it is not able to grab utf text properly, rather converts to ascii.

Is there such a thing as a desktop reader that has a "mini web server" built in to host a web-based version of the feeds for accessing remotely? I could see use in something like this. I had many issues getting TinyTinyRSS to auto-refresh when I wasn't logged in, and in fact it still does not work. Something along these lines would be perfect!

You need to set a cron job type thing, it is in the ttrss wiki. It works when you set it up. TTrss does not do refreshing by its own.

I did end up subscribing to Bazqux. But the more I thought about it, the more I decided to follow my own advice that the only server you can really trust is the one you yourself control.

So now I'm experimenting with TinyTinyRSS, which looks really promising. The initial test running it on Softalicious' AMPPS stack (highly recommended for any test environment btw) definitely made it look worth pursuing further. If it turns out to be a go I'll eventually do a more permanent version running on a Linux server (probably Arch) and that will be that.

My RSS aggregator - my choice. D.I.Y. or Die! ;D

TinyTinyRss rules. I highly highly recommend it. You can also use either the free or the paid android apps. I have been using it for over 2 years now. It is beautiful and awesomeness. Go for it.

General Software Discussion / Re: Help me ZIMBRA!
« on: September 18, 2011, 09:52 AM »

I have tried their virtual appliance and some other appliances for Zimbra and I could not get to anywhere, none of them worked for me. I was just looking for a simpler solution. Installing server stuff always takes more than the documents anticipates due to various settings and I am not willing to waste couple more days on it, since this is not my profession at all.

General Software Discussion / Help me ZIMBRA!
« on: September 18, 2011, 01:45 AM »

Long time no see, but hey I know I can get some help here.

Basically I would like to try Zimbra as an Exchange alternative for individual use. I do not think I will be running it as email server, rather I am interested in other exchange features(calendar, contacts etc). And this is an area where I have zero experience. So I am looking for a donationcoderer that can put a vanilla Zimbra(FOSS version) on  a virtual machine(Virtualbox linux  is fine, debian maybe) that can handle requests from the Lan. Not sure if it is possible or not. And I would like to send some donationcoder credits for such lovely task.

Btw this is for home use, no business stuff. I just want to be able to access this from outside via ip or dns services. I wont run email server on it since I am just on a residential plan, and I bet my isp will block and smtp stuff.

I have nothing to hide! But I prefer SSH and Unison to sync and store my files, because those are my files(at least I own some of them) that sit on my paid hardware and I like to have control over my own system. I know people are going nuts over cloud stuff, I think it is pretty neat and wonderful as well. There can be amazing uses for the future of man kind,  but I prefer to rely on my own ideas and workflows. This way of working also makes me learn and implement new stuff. So I do not become a one way techno consuming machine as well.

You know the cloud can get cloudy, rainy and stormy, then what do you do?

kartal[/b]: perhaps he's using block-based rather than file-based syncing?

With dropbox?

Living Room / Re: Do it yourself dropbox
« on: March 09, 2011, 09:29 AM »
I think that Unison uses rsync to perform the transfer, so entire files aren't transferred, only the different bits (as detected by rsync).

Yes Unison is using rsync by default, and I found it to be quite fast since all the clients also acts as servers(Unison always has first hand access to local files).

This is not like syncing files over FTP, Unison knows which files has changed and it can detect moved files.

I have several times thought about creating my own such synchronization service. But I have never actually started on it, that is, I never got past sshfs.

I want to have my personal service because I don't trust 'them'. Sometimes there terms & conditions are not really in my favor (all your stuff belong to us, but you are still liable). Having a system that works for clients on different platforms -- linux, windows, mac, mobile os -- would be awesome.

My first post was about making data available to outside world on demand(securely and freely). Since you are also wondering about syncing ,I use Unison+SSH for unidirectional syncing(multiple platforms) and works great. I sync GBs of data a day sometimes among 3-4 computers for personal and professional use. I sync big files, text files, video files etc.

Not sure if you are being sarcastic about the data limit, but really I have alot of empty space, and I can buy new hd as I needed.

Also syncing Truerypt container might be an ok idea for small data, but really  you need to sync the container file every time you change something in the container disc(save a new text file ), for anything bigger than couple hundred MB wont be feasible for my use.

Hey people

I have managed to create a rig that lets me share my files(via local or distant connections). It is not a simple setup but I think it works well. When I have time I will write a a short tutorial about it. Basically I am using SSH(on Cygwin) and HFS( I send myfiles to Ssh server and share them with Hfs while I am creating the url for the file on the fly with simple bash console scripts(generated when the file is sent). I endup giving away a url that is similar to any web based sharing tools. I can send files within my network or from outside world.

Does anyone else created a do it yourself dropbox?

I personally like to make life harder for myself so that I can enjoy all the freedoms that comes with custom workflows and methods and I am always interested in what others have to offer as far as custom stuff goes. I do not like to put my data on someone else`s server so I rigged up my own ;)

What is cool is that I can send folders, zip them before sending, pipe other stuff, and even resume files (will use rsync) etc. And I have no MB limit ;)

timms, that resolves per folder or file but that does not solve my problem. My problem is that the ownership shows up as "administrators" in all my drives regardless of what they are. SO it looks like it is by default.

Does that sound right though? I really would like my 'owner" to say my user name, this might complicate things.


I am, having a weird issue here and I thought that someone with proper skills might help me out.

Everytime I save, create files or folders it is created with "administrators" owner. Now my user name is part of administrators group, but the name is not "administrators". This issue makes file access complicated, second I do not think that it should say "administrators" in the owner tab or security properties.  I feel like something is messed up in this scheme.

What would be the right way to fix this issue? I would like my files and folders to be created with the right user name, distinguishable user name

I am on Windows7 64bit

I have to say one thing, people please do not reason and normalize bad behaviour. What OC is doing is bad behaviour, spyware or not. Is there anyone who is willingly to be happy about the fact that these guys are creating a network of computers installed with OC (in many cases mistakenly) . Do you realize this is a marketer`s dream?

Is there anyone here who willingly and happily let OC install itselfs and other apps and kept it in there since then? Just curious.

It is an intentional  false promise to me. And it will get worse.

ok here is my bet, I am putting my 100$ if anyone wants to bet on it.
I am %100$ sure that in 2 years OC will become an application that will try to install hidden stuff and spy on your download-installation activity. If anyone wants to bet I am accepting bets. Since we do not want to gamble lets keep the amount not more than 100$.
* scancode puts $25 against Kartal

Looks like scannie owes kartal 25 bucks.

Hey guys thanks for the follow ups , I did not know that I won. On the otherhand I am not surprised about my future predictions. I have been trying to talk about certain privacy and security implications of various services and apps on these forums, I am hoping to broaden people`s perspective on these very very important issues

I will happilly donate my new income to graceful open source projects and donation coder projects.

General Software Discussion / Online publishing(pdf etc) platform?
« on: February 20, 2011, 04:06 PM »

I am looking for a way to publish my pdf books on my home server for personal use, like accessing from outside. I am looking for something like the way Scripd or Google books works. So far I cannot seem to locate anything. So I thought I would ask for help from DC users. I am thinking to publish pdf, chm, html etc

I am using Apache - Mysql as my server backend

Interesting experiment -- If you want to know what Google knows about you, even with AdBlock installed, go here:

They know I'm an old guy (49) who likes music, but that's about it. Good thing they haven't visited my basement.

I tried it

« on: February 08, 2011, 01:39 PM »
After some extensive search I seem to be find the best solution

I use it under virtualbox machine, but there seems to be a windows compile as well

Normally you need upnp player but you can browse your files in a browser than put the urls into the VLC to play the files.

I doubt that any Ms or additional hardware solution is for me, but those might be attaractive to other users.

I did in the past , and I actually streamed music but what I need is a server, not just streaming certain playlist. Unless I am missing some new features?

Btw I have tried couple fancy standalone open source media servers. I hated them mainly because I have found the interfaces to be cumbersome, the scond reason is that they pull data from internet and replace album covers etc which I hated. And for some reason none of the ones I have tried offer a way to disable such silly features. I am happy with my own album covers and no need to be replaced.
