I'd like to mention one thing:

The program makes use of the proxy settings of internet explorer
At least I think.

At work (portable) I need internet explorer with proxy configured.
At home, I use Opera on the same portable, so I leave the proxy settings in IE.
But I could not make a connection to any radio.

When I cleared the proxy settings in IE, it worked immediately.

I didn't found a mention to this somewhere.

Great job on the program! :Thmbsup:

Nice piece of software.
Very usefull for remote installations :-)

Now this is a handy tool.

It loads as fast as notepad, only take a little more memory as notepad :-)

One suggestion : can you put an autorefresh option in it. So that we can open a specific file and when new data is logged, it gets reloaded and filtered :-)
That would be awesome.

For the CSV : sometimes programs export data to "CSV", but they use a ; instead of a ,

Silly programs...that's not a CSV file then.  =]

true, true.  :(

But I've just came across a program that exports to CVS seperated by ;
It was Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio.

I've exported a bunch of invoices, and to preserve the amounts, it uses a ; as separator.
And I didn't found a setting to change the exportsettings in it. :'(

Even excel ha problems opening that CSV file. :-)

Perhaps you can provide a "default" separator, just a general application setting, and then it's up to us, the users, to change it according to the file we want to drop or open or import.

Just an idea. :-)

Great for the fixes :-)

For the CSV : sometimes programs export data to "CSV", but they use a ; instead of a ,
It would be easy if those could be imported as well.
And sometimes an export contains "strings" with quotes.

Thanks anyway for the upcoming fixes :-)

Hi there,

It looks like a nice program, but it crashes as soon as I try to start it.

During the first setup, it installed directx9 and XNA.
During the second setup, it says that directX9 en XNA are present.

It's probably something windows. Maybe I should reboot first, so that windows loads XNA correctly.

Do you have any idea?

Lovely piece of software again Skwire!  :-*  :up:

Would the following be possible:
(I haven't read the whole topic in detail, only a quick read)

If i create a new file (ctrl+n) and I don't change anything, and i drop a csv on it, could it be possible that you check the number of columns from the first row, and then create the exact number of columns and then add the data.

Because what happens now is the following:
I create a new file, and I get 4 columns.
When I drop a CSV on it with 7 columns, I end up with all the records with only 5 columns.

Here's the testdata:

Started On,Completed,Computer,Status,Total files,Infected,Scan Type
6/4/2008 3:17:53 PM,6/4/2008 3:40:09 PM,MYPC,Scan Complete,102660,0,Manual scan
6/4/2008 3:02:28 PM,6/4/2008 3:14:14 PM,MYPC,Scan Aborted,76046,0,Manual scan
6/3/2008 9:03:35 PM,6/3/2008 9:19:14 PM,MYPC,Scan Complete,99824,0,Manual scan


Oh, and could it be possible to define the "separator" per database?
So when I create a new database, I define ',' or ';' as separator. When I then drop a scv on it, it uses the configured separator.

One more thing (probably a bug):
If I drop a scv on it, the status doesn't change to "edited", so when I close snapdb, it doesn't save the data from the scv. :'(

Thanks. :-)

Hi there,

I'm probably not going to make it before 01/01/11.

There are a couple of reasons, but the most important one is that I'm expecting my first child begin February.
And we normally move house in march or april.
So we are quite busy preparing those things and they ask more time then i thought. :'(

I'm not abandoning, but putting on hold, because it's actually something I can really use at work, but I don't get the time for it at work.

Could it perhaps be that the task bar scheduler doesn't have "log on interactively" or what it is called.

I know that for services on windows 2K3 or 2K8 server it could make a difference.

But I don't know for scheduler tasks.

I nailed the problem :-)

When I start my PC t work, I always have to reenable the proxy settings (at home I don't use proxy, at work we do)
And I get the errors when the proxy settings aren't yet in place.

Maybe you can catch the error and give a nice errormessage instead. :-)

thank you anywy for the program.
It just replaced foobar2000 at home.

I just had it again.

I think it could be a network issue.
But then I find it strange that I don't get a message for Last.fm, since I enabled both of the services. :-)

Description
At my work, we use a lot of log files as TXT files, created from the treatment of invoices.
Now we browse through them with notepad or another text editor.
Since all invoice logging is put in the same file, it's hard to track what all happened with a certain log file.
It would be handy for us to be able to filter and sort invoices and the events that happened with it.

It would be template based, so that you can choose/create a template that defines the number of columns and it they are a fixed with or with a seperator.

example of a logfile:
Spoiler
Default seperator is #

Read, sort & filter the content of the logfile

Planned Features
Program
  • Save and load setttings to ini files
  • Load default settings or previous settings when starting the program
Templates:
  • Create template : define number of fields and columntitles, how to read log file (fixed with, seperator, ...)
  • Create template : Eventually define a default directory per template
  • Edit template : Modify an existing template
  • Delete template : Delete an existing template
Logdetails:
  • Sort every column
  • Filter a certain column

Future Features
  • Export/add a selection of records to a new/existing log file

  • Reformat a log file from templayelayout X to templatelayout Y, as a new file or replace an existing file
  • Batch reformat a selection of files
  • Read multiple log files and treat them as one, so you can filter/sort over several files
  • ... idea's welcome ...

Screenshots

My personal opinion is that NANY should stay free, not shareware.

But once NANY is over, the author is free to do with the next versions whatever he wants.

So : The version released for NANY is free, subsequent versions can be released as shareware, but then maybe not on this forum (or is my last tought wrong?)

Libre.fm reply: OK

OK

The strange thing is that I closed trout, restarted it and now I don't have that error.
But I had it for several days in a row.

I'll keep you updated when it happens again.

Sorry for your time. :'(

Found something strange.

When I start trout and Libre.FM support is on, I get the error in attachment.

And I gt it only when I start trout.
For the rest it work fine. :-)

N.A.N.Y. 2011 / Re: NANY 2011 Teaser: TaskDaddy Pre Release
« on: September 22, 2010, 08:11 AM »
Yes, and I ran it. I doubt I will integrate it into my existing code. My current code is like a desk, it is messy but I know where everything is. Plus lately every new line of code I add introduces a new bug. Plus, it is a section of code that I have investing a lot of testing and bug fixes in, I am not ready to begin that cycle again.
Ofcoure, that logic.
But I made it to implement my idea of logic of subject and body.
I thought it would made it easier to explain how exactly I had it in mind.

For the colons:
My first idea:
As it is programmed now, we need to use 2 colons to keep 1:
@Stuff New stuff 2 #01/11/2010 the stuff @important_stuff hupla, do stuff @stiff_this even more stuff :: todostuff
gives
... even more stuff : todostuff

Actually there is a general problem to be solved here that I would very much like to solve..how to allow special characters to be non-special without cluttering up the syntax..for example what if I want a subject that starts with #? I thought about allowing something like a backslash..
I'll think along with you. It will grow on me in the background while working on my work things.

Here's my quick idea:
We could also use 2 special characters to seperate a part:
(I've never understood why to use a '@' in front of a category, so I don't use them)

EX1:
@@Stuff New stuff ##01/11/2010 the stuff @@important_stuff hupla, do stuff @@stiff_this even more stuff : todostuff
Gives:
Subject : New stuff
Cat : Stuff, important_stuff, stiff_this
Due : 01/11/2010
Body : the stuff hupla, do stuff even more stuff :: todostuff


EX2:
@@Stuff Stuff again :: Need to exercise on : the other stuff aswell
Subject : Stuff again
Cat : Stuff
Due : N/A
Body : Need to exercise on : the other stuff aswell



One more thing:
I'm assuming you parse the string from left to right, but since I have no idea how you programmed it, I'm may be wrong.
BUT:
in ex1, after you've parsed the Subject, you know that you already have a subject, so I would assume the rest is automatically body, and then you have to parse the "body" for dates and categories and remove then from the body.

Wow, thats a lot in the preview.
I hope everything makes sense here :-)
If not, ask me so I can clear out things.

------snip
@Stuff New stuff 2 #01/11/2010 the stuff : hupla
Since the due date “interrupts” the task subject, the task subject is considered complete and TaskDaddy deduces that any remaining unmarked text is the subject body, in spite of not including the colon. Task body deduction is the only time the order of the task attributes matters.
However, there is no harm in including the colon every time you specify a task body.
------end snip
Is this good enough or are you requesting it to be interpreted differently?

* On further reflection, I think I learned this in typing class and not in English class, so I am not sure if it is a grammar rule or not.
Personally I had in mind that while the body can be determined after the due date, it wouldn't check for a colon in the text and just take it all :-)

It's just that I find the result strange:
You check for a colon to split the title and the body, but you still return the whole part after the due date. And not just the part after the colon.

so if the body would be "hupla", i would understand it.

And you are correct, normally the colon needs to be attached to the previous word, but consider me not normal :p
The way I use it in tasks is not like written in a continuously text. :-)
I use it more as a seperator and I don't like to use ' - '.

Great to see an update. :-)


One thing I've seen is that ':' (colon) is removed from the body.
EX.: @Stuff New stuff 2 #01/11/2010 the stuff : hupla

See attachment for result.

Oh, and the site gives me an error :'(
