Thanks guys, glad you like it!  :-*

As Ampa points out, this does not look like one of the best ways to enhanced forum searchability - indeed it's just temporary solution.

We need it coz so far Googlebot seems to have bypassed quite a lot of forum topics and esp. posts in topics that span multiple pages, and SMF forum search is well-known to suck. :(

btw, mouser and I have come up with a beta forum sitemap script that keeps search engines up-to-date on every single public topic and post on the forum, let's c how it works.  :)

The package gets an update!  Up-to-date as of 27 Apr 2007.

Download: http://www.mrmouser....ForumCrawl070427.rar

72.90MB RAR package containing 8,776 individual html files (ouch! 8))

Works best with desktop search engines.

Thanks for the input app103. :)  I'm sure the notifier needs a serious revamp and I'll get back to it asap (just needs to finish this DC web project first  :-[)

Get the missing dll here:


(click on the purple link 'Click here to go to the download of userenv.dll' in the middle)

The download is a zip with two files inside (readme.txt and userenv.dll), checked with Kaspersky Internet Security 6.0 (Sign 042507)

Should I start with this problem: backing up the various (unknown) drivers?

Go to the official site of your computer manufacturer and download drivers, or simply make a copy of the DRIVERS (or similiar) directory in your C:\ drive, if it exists.

Haven't you got the original XP disc? I can't see why you couldn't just use that to boot and try to repair the XP install and if that doesn't work, reinstall the whole damn thing. If you've got an image of the disc, you'd probably be able to keep settings for your most important apps.

afaik, few manufacturers today include xp original disc in their retail computer packages. You have the system in the form of "recovery discs" or "recovery partition" and pre-installed with all kinds of carp (most notably Norton Antivirus), so it's not that easy to repair xp without first wiping out the whole hdd.

Mobysaurus / Re: WordWeb 5 icon?
« on: April 04, 2007, 07:41 PM »
Yes, the new WordWeb icon looks much prettier than the old one and I'll update it in the next version of Moby. Thanks for the reminder.  :Thmbsup:

p.s. long time no see, cemole ;)

When is the deadline for uploading pix? >:D

Mobysaurus / Re: Copy Cat code?
« on: March 21, 2007, 11:47 AM »
hi hiranp, welcome to the site and thanks for using my little program.  :)

WordWeb is a great piece of reference software that existed long before I started to code Mobysaurus, therefore it's not a copycat of Mobysaurus (and vice versa).

Mobysaurus bases its database on Grady Ward's publicly available copyright-free Moby Thesaurus, and serves specifically as a thesaurus. WordWeb is both a thesaurus and dictionary powered by the WordNet linguistic database from Princeton University.

The two programs are inevitably not connected (almost in every aspect) in terms of coding due to huge differences in database structure and general functionality.

During the development of Mobysaurus, I actually learned quite a few things from WordWeb about creating a nice and clean user interface that doesn't confuse - you don't often see programs look as neat as WordWeb.

So far there are two features in Moby and WordWeb that look similar (as I see it):

1. Global Hotkey

WordWeb is presumably the first reference tool to implement "Key1 + Key2 + Key3" (e.g. Ctrl + Alt + W) patterned hotkey support, followed by Mobysaurus and then by TheSage. It's a very handy feature and I thought Moby users might like it too so I added it to the program.

2. Online Referencing

I shamelessly claim 8) to be the first one to offer this feature. The recently released WordWeb 5 also nicely supports tabbed online lookup.

Although Mobysaurus is much more powerful (brazen-faced self-praise :P) as a thesaurus, it's no dictionary at all. Luckily it works with WordWeb (both free and pro versions) so there should be no problem looking up words conveniently in Mobysaurus if you also have WordWeb installed.

As for new features, what would *you* like to see in the next version of Mobysaurus?  :up:

- Anderson (the author of Mobysaurus)

I basically want it to ignore my entire HD, and index only the 2-3 folders I tell it to.

Go to "Windows Desktop Search Options" , click "Modify" and (de)select drive/directories.

Screenshot - 22_03_2007 , 1_24_22 AM.png

Also, does any of these applications index music tags? Say I want to search for album="foo", or artist="bar" is that possible?

afaik, there're some free plugins for Google Desktop Search (also listed in the official GDS plugins directory) that do:

Audio Files GDS Indexer
Mp3tag Audio Indexer
GDS Real Media Indexer

Looks like the windows one will make my oneNote searches faster too. Can you limit the dirs that windows DS indexes, to just say the DC archive and my onenote folder?

Yes of course. I have WDS running and it's completed indexing my DC html pages.

Screenshot - 22_03_2007 , 1_14_56 AM.png

Right click on its tray icon and select "... Options", click "Modify" and add the DCForumCrawl_Titled (rename it if you like) directory. Deselect other unwanted drives/directories. :)

If so, this could be one less application I need to install. Is there any reason you have all four in your computer and also recommend X1 dedicated to just the DC archive?

I've been testing these tools to see which is best for my specific tasks. None of them is best in all areas.

Google Desktop Search is great for general indexing everything, including visited webpages (yay!), however I find it not very convenient to specify how, where, and when the files should be indexed.

With X1, you have fine, manual control over these aspects, which makes it the best tool for the job (for me).


We have a few topics here discussing desktop search engines:

What is the currently best Desktop Search software?

from X1 8)

Thx!  :)

Which of the  desktop search engines you recommend?

If you would like to get the most out of the DC forum crawl, perhaps it's a good idea to dedicate one search engine to indexing & searching these files, like what I did.

In this case, go for Yahoo's X1 Enterprise Client (free). Fast indexing & full-text search with highlighting.


Go to Tools -> Option and set up the search engine like shown below (just my suggestions):

No Delay Indexing


Index exclusively DC Forum html pages



Build one-time index (takes about 5 mins)


note: beware that the X1 client may ask u to install yahoo toolbar etc. during installation, remember to deselect them.

You will perhaps find it much more useful than it appears (useless and redundant) if you are:

1. A DC hardcore  8)
2. Using one or more desktop search engines/utilities like Yahoo! X1, Google Desktop Search, Copernic and Windows Desktop Search

From my experience, my currently installed desktop search tools (all of the above) yield more and also more accurate results than Google does, in most cases (given the same search query), and of course much faster.

Another advantage of this approach is that search results are often previewable.

We have a member by the username of sable here and she has a huge champion cat which WoWs me, now I need to find the pic of her cat to show you.  ;)

Query: sable cat

My X1 Desktop Search - took it 5 mins to completely index these html files


Google Search - Google is your friend!


DC Forum Search - SMF search sucks  :P


I recently wrote a DC forum crawler app that reads topics/posts on the forum, and saves them as individual html files.

After 10 hours of continuous torturing mouser's server :mrgreen:, we now have 8277 individual html files in a compressed RAR package (divided into 4 vols), which is available from:

Download the four RAR files (67.9MB in total) and uncompress (458MB) to your desired directory.

This package presumably archives all publicly available (anonymous-level) topics/posts:

From topic #1 (restricted) to topic #7825 (Which programs have you found that do not work with Vista?) as at 03:06:11 AM, March 20, 2007 (Central Time)

which monkey continue removing my topics at donationcoder ?

I did, and I also set a ban on your username and email address, which mouser later lifted (he's always been so tolerant as we all know). Mouser had nothing to do with the deletion and banning (he was asleep at that time).

You posted obvious spam in our "Official Announcements" section with nothing comprehensible but a link to your own site.

As a part of my responsibility here - I delete spams as soon as I spot them, period. :)

a freeware tool for this job is hard to find, but afaik a prayerware might be of help. :)

Run the duplicate remover from "Start Menu -> Holy Spirit, Southsea" after installation, and for me it works with my Outlook 2007.

Outlook Duplicates Remover

Removes duplicate items from Calendar, Tasks, Contacts, Notes, and mail folders. Free.

What is a Prayerware - from the Author
To use this software, I ask for no payment of money.

Instead, I ask for your prayers for mysefl, Fr. Simon Rundell
and Fr. Michael Lewis, Vicar of the Parish of the Holy Spirit,
Southsea, UK in our ministry to this parish.

Prayer is a powerful thing, and not to be written off lightly:
it takes little time, but means so much to those who receive
your prayers. Every person's prayer is valuable, no matter how
saint-like, or even how un-holy you may think yourself to be:
God respects your prayers all the same, because he loves you.

If you have found this software useful and would like to make
a thank-offering to support the ministry (especially to Young
People) of the Parish of the Holy Spirit, then please consider
making a donation via Paypal.

Please copy the following link into your browser's address bar:;currency_code=USD

All of the money donated in this way is used to support work
with young people in this inner city part of Portsmouth.

Thank You and God Bless,

Fr. Simon

EDIT: added md5 checksum and virus info
