General Software Discussion / Re: software i love
« on: January 05, 2006, 05:40 PM »
I used Pocketmod for awhile: I think it's creators are geniuses!  A very elegant, lightweight solution.  No longer using it now, as I bought myself a lovely Moleskin diary for the new year...  Although I did Pocketmod me some Sudoku puzzles for use at mother-in-law's over Xmas!

There was a piece on Downloadsquad yesterday with a link to a specialised program for exactly this purpose - haven't tried it, but sounds like exactly what you're after:

General Software Discussion / Could Authotkey make my life easier?
« on: January 05, 2006, 10:51 AM »
This is for the Autohotkey devotees:

I work on two laptops, and maintain my lists in MyLifeOrganized (watch for a mini-review here within the next fortnight).  At the end of the day I switch from my work machine to my home machine.  I have been copying my MLO data file to a pen-drive at the end of the day, and then copying it over to the home machine.  I tried running MLO from the single data file on the pen-drive, but this is a little complicated for me (for reasons to do with the way MLO works), and anyway I like to have my data file backed-up on both computers.  So I have taken to emailing the file to myself - this is easy and works fine, but I'm wondering if I could use Autohotkey to automate this process. 

Is it as simple as recording the various steps of: 1) closing down MLO to gain access to the data file (this is necessary before copying the data file), 2) opening a new message, 3) addressing it to myself, 4) attaching the data file, 5) send the message, and then playing back this recorded macro whenever I want to repeat the process?  I don't mind the manual steps of receiving the message on the other machine and comparing to be sure I am not overwriting a newer version of the file. 

I don't know AHK at all, so I don't know if this would be the way of doing what I need - can anyone advise?

It looks really interesting, but I just realised that having been given Civilization IV for Christmas, my gaming time is probably tied up for, oh, the next ten years or so...  This is my first foray into this kind of sim, having spent many hours over the last two years playing TOCA Race Driver 2, Colin McRae 2 and 2005, and Richard Burns Rally.  There's an interesting program on British television tonight, testing someone's experience of car games by putting him into a real car (actually, we already know him to be an experienced driver, but it'll be interesting nonetheless).

I'm interested in this, Mouser, but the link's not working for me...  Can you check it on your side?
