I believe this feature is already a part of WinXP?!?

Disclaimer: I don't often use Explorer (preferring Xplorer²) and when I do, it isn't set up the same way as you describe but...

If you hold CONTROL when you double click a folder, the new folder is opened in the current window (akin to opening a new window and closing the parent).

That is what you wanted isn't it?

327
Um... title says it all really. Here's a link to the changelog.

Just make sure you use your chosen font at the correct size - shown on the right at Da Font. :)

Have you tried a pixel font?

For tiny crisp text they are often the way to go.

Thanks for the input.

wilfrednilsen: WebDav looks interesting (I need to read more), but on DreamHost there seem to be potential issues with using it (regarding the unique / peculiar way they set up users, is you enable WebDav you loose the ability to FTP and SSH)


Allen: I knew that there must be some command-line magic, I'll read up on shell access - not something I've had cause to do before.

Sri: This is possible, and indeed the service is already installed on DreamHost. I tend to shy away from using it though, in favour of an installable application - perhaps I should rethink!



And to answer my own question with another alternative...

AceFTP (freeware, but not OSS) seems significantly more powerful than Filezilla, and allows for easy point and click, drag and drop moving and copying on remote servers.

Hey! That looks good to me :)

Thanks for the continual updates!

333
I am working on a website MyDomain.net and have created a subdomain Preview.MyDomain.net where I make all changes.

Once the client has OKed the update I need to copy the Preview site over the Live site, but Filezilla doesn't have the ability to copy - indeed a search of their FAQ reveals that "there is no copy command in the FTP Protocol".

OK so what is the solution?

Sure, I could reupload the site from my local drive to the remote server, but surely copying on the remote server would be far quicker?

Armando: Yes I have the funny quares too. I think this is the Unicode issue - FARR doesn't fully support Unicode... yet. I am sure Mouser is going to stay up late and fix it though ;)

Czechboy: thanks for the update. I notice that the alias has changed from "char" to "cc". Why "cc" I wonder - surely "ct" for character table? Doesn't really matter I guess :)

A couple of other character ideas... × (multiplication symbol) appears under * but not as a variant of x. Perhaps it should?

Also useful would be...

« Left Double Angle Quotation Mark Alt+0171 U+00AB
» Right Double Angle Quotation Mark Alt+0187 U+00BB

and a tick (check in american) and cross, though I don't think many fonts have these :( and I'm not sure where to categorize them?

✓ u2713
✔ u2714
☑ u2611

✗ u2717
✘ u2718
☒ u2612

IMHO an application becomes bloated when it starts to do things outside the realm for which it was created.

The most obvious example to my mind is Nero, which used to be a lean mean CD burner but now contains things such as a wav editor, CD inlay designer, media player etc etc etc. The download is 183MB and the install footprint will be many times that.

But what do I actually want from my burning software? The ability to easily drag files onto a CD and burn it.

If I want to play my MP3s I'll use XMPlay, or my videos: KMPlayer, WAV editing: Audacity etc etc.

Why would I use 3 or 4 apps where Nero has it all? Because they are each specialists at what they do, so the results are better. Plus the combined download of the collection...

BurnAware4.4MB
XMPlay305KB
KMPlayer9.6MB
Audacity2.9MB
TOTAL~17MB

PLUS: They are all free Vs €59.99

Beta 4 is out (as of 1st Feb 2008) and now includes a developers toolkit, dedicated developers page on our website and a support forum for developers.

I didn't have to register to get it, there is a clearly marked option to download without registering

It is certainly a lot prettier than OpenOffice.

LOL - after the huge build up I am sure that the font will be a disappointment, but since you asked...

Belgian Army.png

338
I have reopened a design from a few years back that is due for an update and completion, but I have lost one of the fonts used!

The font is called Belgian Army and has two weights (regular and bold). I have searched my HDs and my backups but it is nowhere to be found. So I turned to Google and the only references that I can find say "no longer available".

Does anyone have a copy knocking around?

Note: I am not sure why this font has vanished from the web, perhaps there was a copyright issue or something. My request is for a non-commercial, personal project, but it would really help me to match my old work.

UPDATE: Finally found a copy online . Phew! Panic over :)

Just tested the new version, and… I think it is great!

Thanks for the update.

Just installed and seems very nice.

A couple of thoughts...

1) - includes - and ±, where + only contains ± any reason why? Perhaps it isn't a minus but a dash? How about em-dash and en-dash?
2) If I type 'a' how about listing all the possible 'a' variants vertically, and allowing quick select and copy by hitting the associated number (as per usual FARR opperation)?
3) . should perhaps also contain bullet points, centered dot, circle?
4) Why does the status line say Google Translate?

Great work, thanks :)

Dave Perry? AFAIK he isn't associated with Psychonauts at all!

It is a Tim Schaffer game, made by his post-Lucas Arts company Double Fine Productions.

Psychonauts is one of my favourite games of all time, though strangely I've never completed it!

Must go back and conquer the last level sometime.

In theory this would be great, but it would take significant effort to keep information up-to-date and accurate.

Sounds like a job for a wiki to me...?

I mostly use a Word Processor, almost always assisted by an assortment of scraps of paper!

« on: January 31, 2008, 07:26 AM »
...I wanted web export, and didn't want CamelCase, but regular space between words in exported html.

I don't see why you can't achieve both things in Wikid Pad...

If I create a wiki-link as [my link with spaces] then it links to a new page called my link with spaces.

And then export via File > Export > Single HTML page or Set of  HTML pages

Great mini-review - very comprehensive.  :Thmbsup:

I've been using Wikidpad on an off since it emerged. I'd have to agree that the weakest area is the lack of easy to digest documentation, and examples of real world use.

The GTD script looks interesting, but I remember seeing it a year ago (or more) and it hasn't been updated for newer versions of the application (AFAIK); plus the thread is a mess of different hacks and suggestions that is far too cumbersome for the average user to impliment.

I'd like the Opera guys to add real spellchecking for Opera, like Firefox, without relying in Aspell.

Have you tried oSpell?

oSpell Demo.png

oSpell is a tiny user-javascript files which extend the Opera browser to add an ajax dictionary service to all text fields within a web-page. One click initiates the scan, misspelled words are highlighted, can be corrected interactively via dropdowns, and then accepted or rejected.

Developer's Corner / Re: PHP5 driving me insane! removeChild() bug?
« on: January 15, 2008, 12:34 PM »
Thanks F0dder, I think you are right...

When I remove the child node, the length of the FOREACH loop changes, so I need to replace it with a standard FOR loop, and decrement the loop counter if a node is removed.

UPDATE: Tried it. It works :)

Thanks again

If you don't know about DonationCoder, it's a swell little site for programmers and other cussed eccentrics

Cussed?

The adjective cussed has one meaning:

Meaning #1: stubbornly persistent in wrongdoing
-WordNet

Cussed!
