Skwire Empire / Re: Release: sWeather (tray-based weather app)

@comp

I checked Weather Bar and its Source Code and it turned out that the program is JavaScript/Electron and I do not use such stuff.

Trying to use sDictionary I got a series of errors:

I had been using WeatherMate for years until I discovered sWeather which is the best weather program I have ever used. When I noticed that sWeather had stopped working I came back to WeatherMate only to discover that it was no longer working either. I contacted the developer- Ravi Bhavnani, who responded that he was working on a fix. So being deprived of my two weather programs which had been for the most part reliable, I started searching for alternatives. I came upon Tray Weather, which is open source and written in C++ but not portable and without reading the description I installed it only to find out that one needed to get an API key from OpenWeatherMap. After having a look at their Privacy Policy I decided that I didn't want their key and that Tray Weather was not for me so I uninstalled it without even testing it (at first glance I saw that it was bulky, it was not portable, it was limited). After researching some other alternatives which are not even worth mentioning I concluded that for the time being there is no real good alternative to sWeather and that I would have to rely on the inconvenience of web services like wttr.in (GitHub) which at least seamingly do not abuse user privacy (if such a beast has ever existed). If sWeather adopts OpenWeatherMap API I will have to ditch it. If someone has discovered a decent alternative to sWeather I would be grateful if they share their finding. On a side note I want to mention that Yahoo is really fabulous and proverbial- it ruined, burned and destroyed all the assets it once had.

Screenshot Captor version 4.36.2 - about:



Screenshot Captor version 4.36.2 - update check:



Screenshot Captor - website - 2020-02-05:



The version from 2020-01-02 was supposed to be 4.36.1. I think that there was even another release in between but I may be wrong. These version number discrepancies are not a new phenomenon, this has happened quite often before with many of Mouser's programs. As a result I am never sure which is the latest version of a certain program. In my humble opinion Mouser is a very good programmer but when it comes to versioning he is very negligent. This is not a complaint but just an observation. The ideal situation would be if website, file version (both installer and executable), about and update check show the same version number but I am afraid that this would be too much for Mouser.

@BGM

@smaragdus - See what I mean?

I absolutely do not care about false positives. I still use an antivirus for a single reason- when I update some programs they insist on integrating to Windows shell and my antivirus asks me whether to allow or block shell integration. Blocking shell integration when updating certain programs spares me some time and efforts as I would not need to open and edit the Windows registry. Anyway, for me common sense has always been better than the best antivirus, actually it seems that all the antivirus programs are pretty shitty.

By the way- do you still accept feature requests for TextWorx?

I think I will remove that last function in the next version just so it doesn't set off alarms.

I do not think that it is wise to remove features because of a shitty antivirus and its false positives.

Nowadays modern science has become a politically correct religion. As a religion science is rather inferior. Modern science has nothing to do with seeking for truth, it is just a tool used by the globalist elites to suppress truth and to indoctrinate society into politically correct lies. If science means to be a brainless and godless idiot I prefer to have nothing in common with science.

@mouser

I see it does not remember the size of the thumbnail strip, is that what you are talking about?

Yes, the thumbnails become very big. The only workaround I could find to restore the thumbnails size was to delete settings file ('MousersMediaBrowser.ini').

Also, while using 'View mode: Thumbstrip left' and 'View mode: Thumbstrip top' the thumbnails orientation is according to Exif, while switching to 'View mode: Grid' the thumbnails orientation is not according to Exif. Can you confirm that?

It will auto add folders to the GoTo menu as you use them..

I am not sure I understand how to use 'GoTo' - I have browsed many folders containing image files and 'GoTo' menu is always inaccessible (Windows 8 here).

@anandcoral

Feedbro is available on Chrome Web Store. I once tested it with a Chromium fork but I prefer desktop RSS readers.

By the way, is Paste Text Like abandoned for good?

@mouser

First- I am glad that Mouser's Media Browser is still in development. I tested version 1.15.01 and I think I foumd a bug when switching between view modes, example:

  • Switch either from View mode: Thumbstrip left or from View mode: Thumbstrip top to View mode: Grid;
  • Try to switch back from View mode: Grid to View mode: Thumbstrip left or to View mode: Thumbstrip top and see what you get;
If needed I can apply screen shots.

I will repeat some of the suggestions I made earlier (here):

  • Option to save folders as favourites;
  • Support for animated GIF and PNG (APNG) images;

I work regularly with animated images (mostly APNG) and support for animated GIF and APNG files is essential to me, examples:

Animated PNG:

Happy holidays!

Excuse my ignorance but who is Cody?

Cody is the DonationCoder mascot bird. He can be seen at the top of the site, with a coin in his beak.

Best wishes to the newly married couple! I wish Mrs and Mr Mouser much joy, happiness and love! May good luck always be with you!

I wonder whether libpng would be of any help for animated PNG (APNG) support.

24
@mouser

I hope that this is the right thread for Mouser's Media Browser. I did a brief test of version 1.06.01 and I would like to suggest some enhancements:

  • Option to open last used folder;
  • Option to save folders as favourites;
  • Support for animated GIF and PNG (APNG) images;
  • A shortcut key to toggle 'Keep on top of other windows' on/off (perhaps 'Ctrl+T);

I have some more ideas but I suppose that they would require much work. For me an option to save folders as favourites will be very handy since it will spare me navigation to deeply buried folders.
