Skwire Empire / Re: Release: sWeather (tray-based weather app)
« on: September 17, 2019, 11:07 AM »
sWeather uses the Yahoo! Weather API so, unfortunately, it's at the mercy of the data it receives.  In other words, there isn't anything I can do about it programatically.  I suppose you could write an email to Yahoo!, but I'm going to assume it will fall on deaf ears.

I've been aware of sWeather for a number of years and am sure that skwire is a trustworthy developer, but is it possible that this file has been tampered with or are these all just false positives?

I just downloaded it and checked its SHA-256 hash against my local copy.  If you're downloading it from my DonationCoder site, it has not been tampered with.

SHA-256 hash: 33A19E4117DE230A0E9CBCF692BEEB4FEDC4075C8CA3001E91BB8C1AF1334779

Thank you for taking the time to write.  These are false positives that come and are due to the language my applications are written in (AutoHotkey/AHK).  In the past, as a test, I've  written a single line AHK script and compiled it:

Code: Autohotkey [Select]
  1. F1:: ExitApp

That's hotkey to exit the script.  Even that wouldn't come up clean on VirusTotal.  I know it's only my word, but I can state that there is no malware in any of my
 applications that are downloaded directly from my site.  That said, I cannot vouch for the various software repository sites that list my software as some of them wrap my software into their adware-bundled installers.  This perturbs me, but there is little I can do about it.  For the record, I do not submit my software directly to any of these types of sites; they pick my programs up automatically.

Years ago, when the AV companies were a lot fewer, I used to contact them about stuff like this.  Things would get fixed but, due to the AV updates, false positives would, inevitably, occur again. I got tired of dealing with it, so now I just shrug and trust that my body of work speaks for itself.  I know it sounds terribly apathetic, but fighting it just isn't worth the cycles anymore.  Cheers.

Skwire Empire / Re: sWeather Stopped Working on New Year.

I have Windows 7, and from to time sWeather just stops working for me - it doesn't start up with Windows, and when I try to start it manually, it simply won't open. I have to download a fresh copy from the website to make it start, and it happened to me twice already since May. What am I doing wrong?? Is it supposed to be installed in some kind of special directory? (mine installed in Program Files)

If you're going to run it from the Program Files folder, you will need to run it with Administrator rights.  To run it without Administrator rights, you will need to move it to a non-UAC protected folder.

Foobar can do this as well.

Living Room / Re: For those with a CrashPlan...
« on: July 30, 2019, 11:37 AM »
It seems pretty clear at this point that crashplan is malfunctioning silently on my pc;

Mouser, did you mean SpiderOak here and not Crashplan?

I have AutoHotkey installed, but couldn't get your code to work. No idea why... :(

Did you save out the code to a something.ahk file and then run it?

Do you have AutoHotkey installed?  If so, try out this simple script:

Code: Autohotkey [Select]
  1. myEdgePixels := 10
  3. ~WheelUp::
  4. ~WheelDown::
  5. {
  6.     MouseGetPos, myX
  7.     If ( ( A_ScreenWidth - myX ) <= myEdgePixels )
  8.     {
  9.         If ( A_ThisHotkey = "~WheelUp" )
  10.         {
  11.             SendInput, !{Up} ; Send Alt+Up.
  12.         }
  13.         If ( A_ThisHotkey = "~WheelDown" )
  14.         {
  15.             SendInput, !{Down} ; Send Alt+Down.
  16.         }
  17.     }
  18. }
  19. Return

If you don't have AutoHotkey installed, let me know, and I'll compile this into an executable.  Also, I don't have f.lux installed, so this is untested.

Skwire Empire / Re: sWeather Not Refreshing

Does the actual weather data that sWeather displays match with what shows in the raw weather data?

Skwire Empire / Re: sWeather Not Refreshing
« on: July 01, 2019, 03:53 PM »
Bring up sWeather and choose Options > Show raw weather data from the menu (or press F7).  In the webpage that comes up, look for the "lastBuildDate" line, e.g.: <lastBuildDate>Mon, 01 Jul 2019 03:49 PM CDT</lastBuildDate>

If it matches the "08:00 AM CDT" that's showing in sWeather, the problem is on Yahoo! Weather side.  If so, this usually works itself out over a matter of hours (sometimes days).

It's active.  Finding time to make changes is the hard part these days.

Can't see any of the problem characters. Also would it be possible to default the naming to capitalizing? Just the actual name not the other listings.

Doh, that was an error on my part.  Please redownload.  It should be v1.0.0 build 15 now.

Also would it be possible to default the naming to capitalizing? Just the actual name not the other listings.

Do you mean you want to be able to type something like "a nightmare on elm street" and have it use "A Nightmare On Elm Street" in the actual rename?  If so, yes, it's possible, but I think it's completely counter-intuitive to what would be expected by the majority of users.  I think the majority of users would want the name to appear exactly how they typed it in the field.

Give this a testing, please.


I have coded in quite a bit of error checking but, until we get any kinks worked out, please work on copies of your files.

Here's a current screenshot:

Apologies, got a bit side-tracked with work.  I have the basics mostly finished and should have something to share this weekend.

Yes. Are there options to be able to add or remove things in the drop down menues?

Yes, the buttons next to the dropdown are edit buttons.  The "..." are just placeholders; they will be replaced with the typical edit image (pencil).

Most of the functionality is in place.  I'm assuming the following screenshot is pretty close to what you had in mind?

Here's a teaser screenshot of the GUI to this point.  Working on the actual functionality now.


If I use Phone Explorer to backup the apps, will it work?

We don't know.  Try it and report back.

Will the settings be backed up too?

Based on my own experiences as an Android user for over a decade, the answer is sometimes, for some apps, your settings will transfer over.  Sometimes they will not.  Sometimes, an app will offer a settings export feature that results in a file you can import on your new phone.  It's all part of the fun.  Haha.

Can I just restore the backup to my new device?

Try.  It.  You have absolutely nothing to lose by trying it.

I'll start work on this tomorrow.   :Thmbsup:

Apologies for the delay.  I've been busy with family and work stuff the past few weeks.  I'll get to this when I can find some time.

Nice homage to your Pops.   :Thmbsup:

Why not just use Streamlink Twitch GUI?

I use it all the time and it works great.

@MourningStar:  The other thing you could do is use the "Apps Key" to bring up the context menu (after selecting your files), and then use arrow keys to choose what you want from the menu.


So are you saying that you want a contextual keymap based on the application that is foregrounded?

No, I don't think so.  He wants to automate, with a hotkey, the "right-click > choose some context menu action" one does after, typically, selecting files.

@MourningStar: Because right-click shell stuff like this is quite tricky to automate, you might want to look at Cautomaton, released by Worstje, one of the coders here on DC.
