N.A.N.Y. 2011 / Re: Recording Screencasts of the NANY 2011 Projects
« on: January 03, 2011, 03:43 PM »
I could maybe do a couple.  I'm going to tinker around with Kamahl's NetLauncher so I can make a better icon for it anyway...  Might as well do a screencast.

How to share an .ico file??
I made Kamahl an icon, but I can't figure out how to send it to him. The PM email form thing has a button to "Attach File (use browse button below)." But there is no browse button!  Also, imgur doesn't allow .ico files...  
What's the best way to handle this?  Thanks...

EDIT: 
Thanks Mouser!  When editing this post, I see the [Choose File] button below.  Hopefully it attached correctly...

Hi Mouser, Thanks for your work on this excellent app..
Request 1:  Let me define what "Old" means.  I.e. any item from this week gets listed as a "new" clipboard item, even if my computer has been restarted...
Request 2:  More control over the quick popup menu, including the hierarchy of nested items...  My perfect popup would be as follows:
===============
New items
-----
Old items
-----
A single sub-menu of everything else.
===============

Thanks for considering this!  ;D

Developer's Corner / Re: Tabbed Plaintext: Good or not-so-good idea?
« on: December 26, 2010, 11:36 AM »
Hey, this sounds pretty cool!  At work I use a singe large txt file that is a list of about 500 clients' contact info, alphabetized.   I always thought it would be nice if I could drill-down into the contents, by initial, in the same way that most contacts databases do...  Sounds like your system would work for that.  I'd humbly recommend allowing multiple rows of tabs....  I like my text editors to be narrow and off to the side of my desktop.  Also, you indicated a separation as being 13 dashes,   maybe a less-restrictive number, such as >30, <10 would be easier... (though the rebel in me does like the #13  ;)  )

General Software Discussion / Re: draw gears
« on: November 02, 2010, 12:49 PM »
Serif's DrawPlus has some "auto shapes" that can be made into gears.  It's shareware, but they give away the older versions of their stuff free.

Sometimes in PC Utilities and other mags and sites, they'll have a slightly newer version for free...

Google Boomerang / Re: Odd characters ...
« on: May 28, 2010, 09:28 AM »
The "Translated Text" *does* show up as expected, but it's the text en Espanol that I'm interested in...  As mentioned in OP, if I need to communicate with a person who speaks Spanish, TranslatorBoomerang does two things for me, it (1) converts my written word into Spanish, but also (2) it check the validity of the translation by converting it back to English.  I know that if the "back to English" part has a different meaning, then my translated Spanish text probably will not convey my intended message--hence I need to rephrase the original text to be converted.  I've actually used this technique of converting-back-to-English as a way of error checking my verbage for a long long time...  Your TranslatorBoomerang is the ONLY software Iv'e found that does it for me in one step!!

So again, I do want the converted-back-English part, but more importantly, I want the Espanol text for my document that I'm writing....
That's Way I have to get it from the "Debug" tab...  :)

Google Boomerang / Re: Odd characters ...
« on: May 27, 2010, 06:19 PM »
i remember seeing odd characters at some point.. can you tell when in the process they start getting introduced?
can you give me an example of a phrase that results in them?

Hi Mouser, Thanks for the reply.
They seem to happen straight away--first loop.  When viewed on my computer, the (above) sample text shows all the odd characters...  Maybe they aren't showing for other people??  I'll post an actual image:
http://imgur.com/06tMG.png
Oddly, I've found that the Fried Babbelfish app does show the expected Spanish characters...  Maybe FBF is pulling the characters from Google and TB is pulling from my computer (??)  I don't know.  Ideas?

Google Boomerang / Odd characters ...
« on: May 26, 2010, 04:26 PM »
Is it possible to point TransBoomer to a Spanish dictionary?  I actually use it to communicate with Spanish-speaking parents at my school...  I use it in two ways:  First is to translate English text to Espanish, but also to (at the same time) unsure that it's going to be comprehensible...

The problem is that I get lots of junk characters like
Vinnie Vincent Invasion Baby-O Letras: &lt;br&gt; &lt;br&gt;Su un paro cardiaco de dos cañones &lt;br&gt;Ella-demonio, veo a través de tu vestido &lt;br&gt;Un zorro, juguete de amor, ella es un caramelo &lt;br&gt;Poco caliente Strutter, perra salvaje en celo &lt;br&gt;ángel Misericordia, un hijo del vudú &lt;br&gt;Usted dame la fiebre, me estás volviendo loco &lt;br&gt; &lt;br&gt;[Chorus] &lt;br&gt;Baby-O, Baby-O, I &lt;br&gt;Baby-O, Baby-O, I &lt;br&gt;Cariño, estoy ardiendo por ti &lt;br&gt; &lt;br&gt;Metálico ángel trabajando &amp;quot;que ejecuta la medianoche &lt;br&gt;Apriete el gatillo, la pistola-me látigo &lt;br&gt;Con pistola de su placer &lt;br&gt;Que te gotea la miel sobre mí &lt;br&gt;Con una pasión tan dispuesta, tan malvado y libre &lt;br&gt;Difunde tu amor y hacer mis sueños realidad &lt;br&gt;Al igual que el fuego salvaje, estoy ardiendo por ti

Presumably this is caused by TrannyBoomer substituting characters (??) Is this a dictionary issue?  or a font issue maybe?  Ideas?  Thanks.
PS "TrannyBoomer" was a typo but I left it because it was funny :)

You guys are perverts.

...And the most important thing to remember when traveling back in time, is that if you mention any of this stuff to the wrong person in the town square ... you'll most likely be burned at the stake for heresy :)

LOL..  That's what I was going to post, but you beat me to it!  :o)

LaunchBar Commander / Some system folders not working...
« on: December 02, 2009, 05:55 PM »
Not sure why...  I'm running 1.109.01 on XP SP3. 
%AllStartMenu% seems to populate correctly, but %ControlPanel% and %InternetHistory%just has [no items to display].
I'll try to attach an image of my settings for the item...

Any ideas I might try?
Sorry...  Doesn't seem to display my jpg...

Usually my body goes to work, but my brain stays at home....  Does that count?

Thanks very much for doing the videos.  I thought I had explored all the nooks and cranies of FARR--but I learned a few things just now watching the video!!!   ;D

567
Awesome!  Computer training *AND* video entertainment...  A win-win!   :-*  :P

Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: fyi start up error...
« on: June 03, 2009, 12:59 PM »
Actually this is still happening....  I noticed that I have Options > Backup on program start = Yes.
I suspect that I'm getting a corrupt backup DB (???).  I guess I'll do an uninstall/reinstall.
Does anyone have any additional recommendations?  I looked in Program Files to see if there was an error log, but didn't see one.  I noticed that after it happens no new clips are remembered (though all my "old" clips seem to still be there.)
Thanks -steve

Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: fyi start up error...
« on: May 30, 2009, 09:36 PM »
is this on a new install, or just started happening when it was previously working fine?
do you get it every time you run it?  if you exit and restart do you still get the error?
Started happening, then only happened a couple times...  Tried to isolate the cause but couldn't get a replication...  :huh:

The Form Letter Machine / Feature request: "toggle variables"
« on: May 29, 2009, 05:34 PM »
Hi, tried to post on the "official feature request" thread, but didn't see how.  :huh:

What I'd like to be able to do is have a series of variables that can be set as a group to "A" or "B."
Example Content:
==============================
Dear parent,
This is to notify you that your [son|daughter] will be graduating soon.  [He|she] will need [his|her] cap and gown fitted for [him|her] prior to graduation.
==============================

Then I could choose between [A|B] in one location and the choice would be propagated through the entire document.  Does that make sense?
I'm not sure how this would work...  I guess there would need to be a special kind of radio group such as
=========
Gender
()male
()female
=========
There would have to be a way for TFLM to know what group each of the toggle variables corresponded to... ... ...
Maybe this:

Tree group:
=========
Gender
()male
()female
=========

Text body:
==============================
Dear parent,
This is to notify you that your [Gender:son|daughter] will be graduating soon.  [Gender:He|she] will need [Gender:his|her] cap and gown fitted for [Gender:him|her] prior to graduation.
==============================

Did that even make sense?  This is rather cumbersome... Do other people have ideas?
Thanks for considering this  ;D  -steve

Find And Run Robot / Re: Bug: FARR crashes if I enter LG
« on: May 24, 2009, 03:08 PM »
Weird.  No problem entering "LG" here....
Have you tried going to Options > Launch History and right-click "delete all?"

574
Sorry about that, I incorrectly said that "Virtual Folders" was a "Formatting Preset Sub-menu" ... I guess it's actually a sub-menu of "All Clips."  Anyway, what I'm trying to describe is having "Virtual Folders" as a root menu item and all of the other stuff ("Print last clip," "show main window," "Cancel," etc) hidden. So the menu would look like:

====================================
1 - clipbrd string that I copied.
2 - another clipbrd string that I copied.
3 - and another
4 - so on and biz bar.
-------------------------
Virtual Folders >>
====================================

(Note that I see how to hide many of the menus  via "Quick Paste Menu 2," which helps  :)  -steve

Hmmm.. Interesting, just launched ObjectDock and did testing... 
(Am on Vista Home Prem, but have seen error on XP too)
I'm actually thinking that the CHS window is not becoming "active" even though it's in the foreground.
Using hotkey v. tray icon R-click menu is the same.  And the effect is the same on the Prefs GUI or the Editor Window... 
I activate it and *can* mouser-over it and the moused-over buttons/menus *do* show the moused-over color-change, but clicking does nothing.  I have OjDoc set to display icons of open windows on the toolbar.  If I click the CHS icon, it brings the window the rest of the way fwd, thus allowing it to work...  (I can tell this is happening because I noticed the top window bar get darker, thus indicating that the window had not been "active").  I have a hunch this might be an ObjDoc bug.... 
Also, just FYI, tried it with the FARR Options window and the problems does not exist....
