never used an app key to be honest(my spare buttons are generally rigged up for other stuff), and I am on a laptop most of the time nowadays. Is that what it does ? Again though I do not want mouse button simulation. If the app button is a real menu button then it should be possible to call the appkey code in AHK.

Hi

Does anyone know a way or an app that would give me right click explorer menu? Bear in mind that I am not looking for a right mouse click emulator, that is just piece of cake in AHK. I just need a little app that can bring explorer menu without clicking in white space, folders etc. I know right click menu is based on the context.

Do not get me wrong but this is  somewhat flawed logic. :)

"Real-time maps and traffic information based on the wisdom of the crowd"

When everyone knows everyone else`s move as soon as everyone else moves, I do not expect much wisdom based on the data gathered from the other`s wisdom. I would rather see a "rush" in the crowds wisdom to expand their gain. Although for now it might work for those on the network compare dto the those not on the network. However when everyone is on the network this idea would rather diminish the gains of everyone who was enjoying it for a while before everyone else has joined the party,

It would be nice to see a video of a past event to see how this crowd wisdom helps.

One more example of why ad sponsored content or service can turn into another internet bubble. I have never used Yelp or any similar services on the internet and I am proud of my own intuition about these kinds of services.

from their official blog
"Myth #1: Yelp offers to remove or reorder reviews in exchange for money.

Truth: Yelp Sales Representatives sell sponsored search results, enhanced listings and targeted advertisements. Period."

This makes the case for me even more. When do you draw a line  between sponsored or extorted search result?

Thanks for the promotion. I have rather cynical question to ask. Is there any adware-toolbarware-bloatware embeded in the installer at all?

Hey thanks, I am always interested in better ways of doing things. At the moment I use Firefox with Vimperator and text based browsers(lunx,links etc). I will definetely check it out

Not sure if anyone has seen this, it is a nice nifty programming toy :) I wonder if mouser would embed into our forums :)

Introduction

TIDE is a Tiny IDE for JavaScript. Its purpose is to write, analyze or debug small JavaScript programs. The current version 2.0 is still beta and has some bugs, but it is already better than the previous version. Please note that it might not run all JavaScript programs correctly, but the provided examples should all work.

Thanks for the suggestions. I know Visual Express Studio is very attractive alternative but my problem is that I spend quite a bit of time on Linux and Windows so I want my stuff to be cross platform. That is why anything .net would not slice it for me really, which is why I am not investing a lot o f time in either in Ahk or Autoit. They sure are very very nice alternatives if you are sticking to Windows.

And I'm pretty sure that Firefox periodically downloads it's malware list of dangerous web site, malware addresses, etc. for its phishing filter in a database provided by Google.

So yes : google and firefox seem responsible for that blocked page. Somebody could probably confirm.

firefox url bar --> "about:config" type "google". You will see that bunch of google stuff is embedded by default.
Naturally all of the google stuff has been neutralized in my FF.

PSPad has no code-folding, but I make do with the code explorer.

To all the VIMers and EMACSers: I too love VIM (not EMACS), but I think not everyone is into the right mindset for this kind of editors in this day and age. Bill Joy himself claims he wrote vi for a very different era, one with only 300 bps of bandwidth.

Well Pspad is definetely a good app. But it is not as sophisticated as Vim in my view :) Vim offers one of the best code folding customization out there in my opinion.

The weird thing about Vim(I use gvim) is that it feels very archaic in the beginning but then you appreciate how  sophisticated it is later. Vim also offers an amazing custom coloration features.

Since I have started using Vim code syntax and vim code colors, my coding activity has increased dramatically becuase it has become so much fun to deal with text and code.

I think that an automated versioning can be great if the author is working in a certain branch with Git. For example a master branch would not be auto committed, but a branch named for example  autocommit can have auto watch feature and  would be interesting because there might be times when the author might want to try many different things in short amount of time ( without wanting branching) until a satisfactory result is achieved, then the branch could be merged into the head easily.


Branching is a great feature of common revision control apps. Most standard file  versioning-backup applications do not have any kind of branching as far as I know, including Filehamster, which is not a negative thing at all. But branching is very interesting and useful concept.

After looking into various languages like FreePascal, FreeBasic, PureBasic,C++ I cannot seem to make up my mind :) I need to learn C++ at some point but along the way I want to work on fun Gui and visual stuff.

Python offers nice solutions but non are integrated as in Pascal or Basic I guess. I have used Glade+Pygtk other day for a small project of mine, it was not bad actually. The main problem with Python and Gui stuff is the compiling. I ended up compiling my program into an exe file+folders but took alot of time to figure out right things, I assume compiling with Basic or Pascal should be relatively simple.

Tomos thanks for the post. I will try to follow up.

40hz, do you know any versioning that supports manual and automated committing? Something like git+auto watch(for file versioning for now). So for certain projects or folders I can do manual, for some others I can do automated? I know it sounds against the idea o Git since it is designed mainly for maintaining code base. I have tried tortoise svn in the past for manual stuff. it almost worked well but lack of automated watch makes it hard for certain projects. At the moment I use Git for my small code stuff. I need file evrsioning for non-code multimedia projects.

I am an Amazon prime user as well. In general I like Amazon, but you need to pay attention when buying stuff as prime user because Amazon jacks up the prices to compensate for prime shipping. At least in some instances I have experienced it.

@Carol

They do respond everything well except the Gui issues. I have never seen any real improvement to the gui all those years. Everything else has been well and steadily improved to certain degree.

Tomos`s remarks also support my dissatisfaction of the Gui issues. It looks like I was not alone in the complainer`s camp

@40hz

My main problem with many back up and versioning apss is the network support. Many of those apps work alright in the local machine but they seem to drop watching once in if the watch folders happen to be on a network drive or folder. I can undestand why but the thing is that this just makes it unreliable, you cannot trust the app because you never know when the watching might have been stopped. In some cases I need to open the network folder manually in explorer to force some kind of network recognition. I cannot tell what the issue is but even file explorers fall in to this trap. They cannot refresh a network drive unless explorer itself has refreshed or connected the drive or folder properly.

I have been using SyncbackSe for versioning and realtime back up and that one seemed to drop network watch once in a while. No idea

AutoVer[/url] does, thanks for mentioning it.
Oops, you are correct; AutoVer does do that...However, I think I remember seeing somewhere that it isn't being actively supported or developed anymore.  In checking their forums, they haven't had any traffic in well over a year.

-Mogware Support (October 06, 2009, 05:46 PM)

Is FH being actively developed nowadays? I have been an ardent user in the past. The Gui never improved much really, felt clunky and non user friendly. For example  the file and folder exclusion menu is a joke to me and they have never given enough attention to improving that area. I have even complained and bugged in the  beta forums. There are other slight usage issues as well.

It is a good product (the functionality) but the Gui needs some serious regrounding.

Hi,
Maybe an (private) Freeware "alternative" (?) - not tested - but looks fine - and is -> ".NET free"! :)

Automated backup and synchronization:
- A scheduler starts a synchronization every x hours, days, weeks, months
- Start a synchronization or backup automatically when e.g. a USB drive has been plugged in
- Synchronize or backup automatically when a file (that shall be backuped or synchronized) has been modified.

cheers



The installer does not work unfortunately

Google has a good eye for others genuine innovation. Picnik just got bought http://blog.picnik.c...gle-acquires-picnik/ Picasa will be going places now :)




This just reiterates my stand on Google. I have not been let down by Google so far.

Here is what should not happen

Hi

You know your email client most likely can alert you when new email arrives into your mailbox. My problem is that I do not want to be alerted about every little thing especially when Im working on a project I just need be alerted about the emails from my project team people.

I am not interested in changing my email client at the moment, so I am just looking for a tray app. If I cannot find one I will attemp to program one in python.



123
You are right but I was not trying to come up with a fast method, rather I just wanted to entertain the basic functional programming methods in Python. The method would work faster if I can make the summing faster I think since LogN is not that terrible. Python has a built in array sum mehtod probably faster than using reduce to sumup the array, but again that would only effect the speed of the calculation not the number of steps :)

One another way I can think of without going through the recursion way is using "map", "filters" and "lamda" in the same line. I need to see if that is doable

Btw I have found 2 alternatives for myself(for now) for Python. One is PyGtk+Glade and the other is WxformBuilder. Pygtk+Glade gives back an xml file which is nice so that the Gui file is seperate. Wxformdesigner looks nice and updated regularly some what

http://www.wxformbuilder.org/ (check out forums for the nightly releases)

Here is a nice Pygtk-Glade tutorial

I am giving a try with Glade for now, see how it goes :)

It' not just free, it's also the focus of a lot of the innovation that is having an impact on large numbers of internet users. There's not much sign of innovation from MS any more - just the development of their products.

I think that the only real innovation Google has ever had was the Google search. The rest seems to be acquired through commercial acquisations, or acquired through using and expanding open source software.Since MS is a closed source company they need to write everything themselves. Anyways I am not a MS supporter either I just want to little clear up this Google fantasy land.
