Living Room / Question for any Ruby coders out there.
« on: December 03, 2018, 03:02 AM »
Quick (and hopefully basic) question:

I'm trying to find a method, that when I run an `exit` command, I can also exec l.sh in that terminal (basically, these are 2 discord bots, one using discordrb and one using discordjs.)

I need it to do the following (the discordjs can already launch the ruby one)

When discordrb bot is shutdown, it will exec `l.sh` - this launches the discordjs bot


Any help would be hugely appreciated <3

Advocate of the devil here:  Would it then not become just a numbers game?  This post is liked by x amount of people on this forum? What does that add exactly?

The point of it would be so that you could express thanks or approval or give some form of feedback without having to create a new reply which would therefore ping everyone who has signed up to be notified of new replies. It also helps keep threads on topic instead of having a bunch of superfluous "thanks" or "nice" replies.

This would be especially handy, IMO, in threads such as the latest Steam or GOG giveaways.

As things are now, I have to choose between no reply at all (which can give the OP the idea that nobody cared about what they had to say/share) or possibly bothering a bunch of people with notifications just to say something like "thanks" or "I enjoyed that" etc. Often times I choose the former.

^Like^  :D

@Stephen66515 - It sends the standard window close message allowing for saves, though i can add a force quit option as well, just in case it's needed.

Force-quit seemed a bit "too much" and I was hoping it would send the standard close message for saving :D

@Stephen66515 - sure. I'll add an exclusion option

Thanks - without it, I can see it becoming extremely annoying to use (especially in stuff like Photoshop/Lumberyard/Unity where they take a fking lifetime to load, and closing them could cause loss of work)....which begs another question...does this force-quit the software or will it still prompt things like Notepad/MSWord/Etc, to store unsaved work before exiting?

This is exactly my thinking behind the "upvote/like" system.  There happens to be a lot of posts on DC where there are no replies at all because the reader may feel like it's "interesting" but have nothing useful to add to the topic. Clicking "Like" will allow the writer to know they didn't just waste their time and that the content was appreciated in some way


And I wouldn't keep having to post this.  Like I'm posting now.

Can you stop it from registering the "quit" on certain software?  I'd rather not have this open then kill game engines when swapping from one mode to another (which sometimes requires hitting ESC more than once in quick succession) or quitting Chrome cause I hit ESC twice trying to stop it loading a page.  Same for Discord (which you can hit ESC to jump to the latest messages if you were scrolled up, but it sometimes ignores you so you hit it twice, quickly).

If you're very concerned about security, I wouldn't trust WordPress, private or not.  Not that it's not capable, it's just that WordPress is a big target.  Keeping things that you'd rather not have anyone see but it's not disastrous if someone does?  It's probably fine for that.  But really secure things?  I'd suggest somewhere else, IMO.
I'll second that - There is no true 'privacy' on the internet.

On a side note: We really do need a like button system here, it's a great way to agree with something without making a low content clutter post.


I've literally been bugging mouser about this since 2010 :')

True, people do go for the sensation of getting a thing at discount prices. It is also subject to diminishing returns.

If, for example: I drop by your house and brink your favorite cake for you to eat. You will be happy. If I then return with another unit of the same cake, you won't be as happy as the first time, but you'll still like it. If I return again with another unit of the same cake, you'll be angry and tell me to get lost with that ff''ing cake.

This also happens when you buy lots of different things. Less fast than buying the same item, but it still happens. People think they can get the same feeling from the first time back by spending on bigger items. But that barely works. Add to all of this an artificial time-limit and people keep falling into the same trap. In the mean time a lot of retail business has taken place and made a profit.

Which is why I don't go for that kind of crap at all anymore. I'll look for the best item I can buy, at a time that I deem best without a time-limit. Brings me peace of mind and I usually end up with (much) higher quality products that last longer and not having so much stuff gives me peace of mind. Which I treasure most of all.



I would never be angry at somebody bringing me cake.

Well...this killed a bit of time.

Yes! Please add search. I use the app for so many things that the list is too long to search just visually.
Thanks for making this awesome app! It's my fave out of the many launchers I've tried.
I'm cheering you on!

I have nothing to add to this thread in general, but I did notice you are a new member AND you have the supporters tag, so I thought I'd welcome you to our lovely little site!

WELCOME!

N.A.N.Y. 2016 / Re: NANY 2016 Pledge/Alpha: Mouser's Media Browser
« on: November 19, 2018, 05:08 PM »
@mouser

I hope that this is the right thread for Mouser's Media Browser. I did a brief test of version 1.06.01 and I would like to suggest some enhancements:

  • Option to open last used folder;
  • Option to save folders as favourites;
  • Support for animated GIF and PNG (APNG) images;
  • A shortcut key to toggle 'Keep on top of other windows' on/off (perhaps 'Ctrl+T);

I have some more ideas but I suppose that they would require much work. For me an option to save folders as favourites will be very handy since it will spare me navigation to deeply buried folders.


Moved to correct thread.
