How can I specify specific folders or files and mirror them automatically in the cloud?

Unfortunately not OneDrive or GoogleDrive allow you to specify a local directory and mirror it in the cloud!



That was very useful.

OK so what is the regex to capture the piece of text that starts with space and ends with the end of the line and can contain any character?

I don't understand, the below matches " text1 text2 [email protected]".

Why does it includes spaces in between since it is enclosed in \b?



I want to make an autocomplete box to appear when I start typing on a specific text field.

This text field can be any Windows app or Unix terminal. I need to position the autocomplete box just below the text input box and I need to be able to identify the text input box both by its GUI ID but also by its visual appearance and pixels (because there are some text input boxes in Terminal GUIs that are not separately identifiable with a separate GUI ID.

I also need to specify the autocomplete suggestions/database for different text input boxes.

In other way, I want autocomplete functionality in Windows applications that do not have it.

Is there any robust outofthebox solution for this?


Code: Text [Select]
  1. \b[A-Z0-9._%+-][email protected][A-Z0-9.-]+\.[A-Z]{2,}\b$

Thanks but why the following does not work?
Code: Text [Select]
  1. \b.+?.com\b$


How to identify space + email address at the end of lines with RegEx?


*anything* [email protected]

How can I match these email addresses? The email can have various stuff e.g. dots, underscores etc.



When a webpage loads a stream video, it runs a m3u8 which I believe is a playlist and it runs a file from a link like blob:https://file/1234

Is it possible to get the link of the actual file?

I tried HLS Downloader for Chrome but it seems to actually stream and save the video, instead of downloading it directly.

I want the latter so that I can load many files to download and be able to resume them.


Any idea?

The file is hidden behind a JS apparently.

The only way to record it is to capture the screen but I wonder if there is any better way?

What is the question exactly? I asked if we can download the videos and they said they have disabled that feature.

I cannot give url and account details are they are behind a login page.

What are the best practices to achieve this generally? They may have been tried to panopto as well?

Unfortunately the creator has not enabled the download feature, is there a third party solution?

Any hint?

The videos are broken down into small chunks and they are streamed one after the other.

Is there a way to capture/save these videos?

I saw a macro with the extension .rsf, which application is this really?


Living Room / Notepad++ strange behaviour
« on: November 26, 2019, 03:57 AM »

I have three tabs open in Notepad++ and when I type some text in the second or third tab, it spontaneously activates the first tab!

Is this a shortcut or bug or something?


Living Room / Strange Outlook Ribbon display
« on: November 23, 2019, 06:02 AM »

I usually add another group of commands in the Home tab ribbon but this time it displays it as one button that I will need to click on in order to reveal the commands.

Can you tell me please how to fix this?



Living Room / QuickTime messed up everything
« on: November 20, 2019, 11:16 AM »

I made the mistake to download a video cutter software and it required Quicktime. In the middle of the extremely lengthy install, I cancelled it.

Now, when I click on a map link in Firefox, Mac Maps come up instead of the regular Google.

Any idea?

Living Room / Migrating from Ymail to Gmail
« on: November 15, 2019, 09:10 AM »

I have been unlucky to have a yahoo email address from many years before gmail and I couldn't do the switch.

Now, everyone ignores my messages due to my account which is associated with spammers and fraudsters.

Is there a way to migrate from yahoo to gmail without losing any data? I need to maintain records of all my emails, more than a decade ago.

Exactly, I had the impression they are called mainframe/blueframe.

Living Room / How is this old interface called?
« on: November 04, 2019, 07:00 AM »

How is the legacy interface called of some programs that you run them using TAB, F1, F2 etc keys to navigate to different fields and type text? The whole interface is MS-DOS-like text only with text inputs and no graphics.

How are these programs called?

Also, how do they work? Do they write/read from a file? How is the data stored?

How can we automate them and can we inject data into them by-passing their tedious interface?

1) I very often accidentally switch on the Google Assistant, how do I completely disable or uninstall it? I don't find any value in using it and it has some very basic shortcuts that interfere too often.

Given that there are numerous phones with possibly multiple ways of invoking Assistant perhaps it might not have occurred to you that you telling us how you accidentally keep invoking it might help us to have relevant suggestions on how not to do it.

Like not holding your finger on the fingerprint sensor too long ...

hmmmm ...

I tried to notice it and it seems it is holding the home button a bit longer!

Living Room / Android annoyances
« on: October 10, 2019, 08:07 AM »

Do you know any solutions to the below Android annoyances please?

1) I very often accidentally switch on the Google Assistant, how do I completely disable or uninstall it? I don't find any value in using it and it has some very basic shortcuts that interfere too often.
2) How can I set the phone not to dim the screen when a specific app is running?
3) How do I set the phone to always mute a specific app? There is an app that has annoying ads that have sound and I want to stop this.


Thanks for the great info.

I have saved the Windows 10 key and I may choose to upgrade when MS stops the 8.1 support/updates as I am happy with 8.1 for now.

Living Room / Windows 10 Versions: Education, Education N, 1809, 1903
« on: October 02, 2019, 03:48 PM »

I can download Windows 10 from the university and I am offered the following versions:

Education 1809
Education N 1809
Windows 10 1809
Windows 10 (consumer editions) 1903 - DVD

Which one should I choose? What are the differences? Which is the most 'advanced'?

Also, do I download it and run it as installer to update my Windows 8.1? I do not want to erase anything.

Will it say if my laptop is not compatible?
