Finished Programs / Re: IDEA: Dropbox "Desktop"
« on: July 11, 2011, 03:09 AM »
Would a portable launcher that uses relative directories work for you? I use PStart: It launches directories, programs, files...
Something with relative paths would work but I only see the U3 and installable versions of PStart on their website, is there any standard portable version I can throw in Dropbox?

Finished Programs / SOLVED: Dropbox "Desktop"
« on: July 11, 2011, 12:05 AM »
I use Dropbox for a lot of things, including well over 200 portable applications. Almost everything running on my hard drive right now is thinstalled and not touching my Windows registry or drivers and services, which I love. Here is my dilemma though: Of these 200+ portable applications I have, I use 15-20 of them very frequently and it's a pain to clutter the desktop with my all-purpose Dropbox applications. At one point, I had the bright idea to make a "Shortcuts" folder in my Dropbox, but adding shortcuts will not work when synced universally, because paths to shortcuts are "hard" defined and I can't assume that every single Windows computer I sync them to will have that same username/folder structure.

What I had in mind was a "Dropbox Desktop" application that would basically be one program that you could launch, that would basically be a pop-out menu or holder for shortcuts. As it is to be used specifically for Dropbox and Dropbox's synced folders cannot be changed or take their own shape, computer-to-computer. So in this way, "shortcuts" can work and sync universally proplerly, by just assuming the path is "%DROPBOX_FOLDER%\whatever_the_folder_is_thereafter". Does anyone think something like this is possible?

General Software Discussion / Monitoring USB Ports

Is there any Windows application that can tell me show me my available USB ports/hubs and then explain to me or show me what devices are currently connected/active in this ports?

Something that I could specify to archive files in a directory 30 days after they were last created/modified would be great.

Which datestamp would you like me to use?  The created or the last modified?
Being able to choose between either would be great, but if only one then I think last modified would be best. Thanks so much if you're planning to code this up!
