i interrupt this PUN war to report in from the field: I have somehow finished all electric wiring and plumbing, and everything works (!)

It all works?!  To celebrate, I volt for a Faraday for an entire week!


We'll just call you the generator of a new war...

Leave it to Jody Ohms to be the transformer of the conversation...

rule of thumb, no one should ever touch electricity...

Shocking revelation, that.

That lightning wit on display, eh?

These kinds of remarks are a bit of a jolt!

Ohm my word, I knew you all wouldn't be able to resist.

That comment really Hertz.

And so it should! After all, we are discussing the crown joules of mouser's demesne.

I think that there is a potential difference that you re-fuse to see that I can't relay between our alternating current conversations.

We're poles apart and, to be direct, at the risk of seeming a growler, that kind of thinking comes close to analog ic. You really should keep an ion it.

pretty sure you guys have ground about as much as you can out of this

No one would fault mouser if he set an impedance on the frequency of off-topic conversations on this circuit and placed a demand on us to cut it short.

Or he lets us go on by extension, cord-ially....

could go either way, though I fully expect him to arc up soon


Would we want to have him amp up about this?

The mains part of this powerful conversation sure went off the rail, didn't it?

Only a third of it.

This conversation's spark is fading, so wire you giving it more continuity?

I can't tell—do you approve of such conduct or not?

I feel a need to insulate myself from that line of questioning.

I took the liberty to modify the script a little in regard to tray icon display and a (fake) tray tooltip.
[...]
Attached is a zip archive containing only the source code - no executable. Code has been tested using AutoHotkey v1.1.28.0 Unicode.

While I appreciate your interest in improving sWeather,  I do not appreciate you decompiling the code, making changes, and then posting it publicly.  My programs are not open source. Please respect that, and stop.

The latest version of Vivaldi which uses Chromium for me shows: 72.0.3626.122

Do a manual update from the "Help > Check for Updates..." menu item.  Latest Chromium version is 73.0.3683.67.

Hi, WPYS, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.

I found that the latest version 1.8.2 could not show selected city's name when I hovered my mouse on any of the tray icons. I am very sure that previous version (for example version 1.7.x)  can show different information when hovering on tray icon including selected city's name. Please bring it back!

Thanks so much for your response - maybe had I read more of the Forum, I could have saved both of us some time!  Thanks again for sWeather.

You're very welcome and no worries.  I'm glad you find sWeather useful.

I've enjoyed sWeather for several years...and, rely on it faithfully every day.  Thanks for creating it.  I seem to recall that previous versions (several back) listed update information (date/time, etc.) in the tooltip.  That seems to have disappeared in recent versions.  I was wondering whether it was omitted intentionally and whether it could be added again to the tooltip? Thanks again for your software.

It's a drawback to the new tray icon changes I made recently.  Please read the following posts for some more insight:

Hello everybody and greetings from Germany. I'm using sWeather since several years and followed the recent trouble with the yahoo api closely in this forum.

Hello, mhh, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.

Right now I just want to point out a minor bug:
If the "feels like" temperature is 0°C it is diaplayed as "N/A".

Thank you for the report.  It should be fixed in the latest version below:

v1.8.2 - 2019-03-01
    ! "Feels like" temps of zero degrees would display as N/A.  (Thanks, mhh)

Would it be possible to mass edit the URL/INI files so that they contain ONLY the absolutely necessary lines, such as [DEFAULT],  [InternetShortcut], and IconFile, and then delete everything else, such as [DOC_iframe436], [{000214A0-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}], etc.?  I have noticed that I have URL files between 1 and 3 kb.  Maybe the larger URL files have a lot of junk in them which could be deleted?

Sure, I could delete all the other sections but what if they're necessary to the operation of that particular URL and the website it references?  As a test, you could try deleting those sections and their contents yourself to see if that makes the icon show properly and still allows the URL file to open the website as you'd expect.

So, URL files are notoriously finicky.

Yes, they are.  Hell, I've already developed software that converts Steam URL files into regular Windows shortcuts to get around the icons not showing properly.

https://www.donation...forum/?topic=26167.0
http://www.dcmembers...steam-url-converter/

Is that maybe why no programmers have ever been able to develop software that can mass edit URL files......

I, and others, have developed software to mass edit URL files.  The problem is that the operating system doesn't want to play nice.

65
skwire, what do I need to do now?

I'm not really sure what to tell you.  URL files are notoriously finicky, as you are finding out.  By default, your computer has a default icon that shows for URL files.  Typically, this is going to be your default browser — Firefox, it appears to be in your case (based on your previous screenshots).  That's why your first example, even without the IconFile/IconIndex lines, shows the icon you expect.  As you can see in your other example, SCURLed has put in the appropriate IconFile/IconIndex lines in there and your system still doesn't want to show the proper icon.  In a URL/INI file, each section header is contained with square brackets, e.g., [DEFAULT], [DOC_iframe436], [{000214A0-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}], etc.  Of course, the [InternetShortcut] is one of those sections, too.  The fact that the icon won't show for you could have something to do with all the other sections in that particular URL file.  I simply don't know.  Have you tried rebooting since modifying those test files?

N.A.N.Y. 2016 / Re: NANY 2016 Release: sTray
« on: February 22, 2019, 09:15 AM »
Just updated to 1.0.0.3

This error should have been fixed in v1.0.2.  Have you tried that version?

http://www.dcmembers...wire/download/stray/

67
@berkland: Both of those text files you attached are HTML files, not URL files.  A URL file is just a renamed INI file and the contents of one looks something like this:

[InternetShortcut]
IconFile=C:\Users\skwire\AppData\Local\Xmarks\favicons\2h5x8-m8tUI.ico
IconIndex=0
URL=http://en-us.www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/about/

To view a URL file, you should be able to just drag and drop the URL file onto a text editor like Notepad.

Everything looks good and working fine now on W7 W8.1 and W10. Thanks for the fixes and thanks for adding the icon selection option. I appreciate that.

@click-click: Good to hear and thanks for the report.

Forgot to post this notice a few days ago:

v1.8.1 - 2019-02-11
    * Tray icon options have changed.  You can now display either or both icons.
    ! On a delayed startup, tray icon was showing blank instead of the N/A icon. (Thanks, T. Elliot)
    * Added a small delay when updating location time.

69
Nothing changed.  What now?

Open up one of those URL files with a text editor and see if an "IconFile=<some path here>" line is there.  If so, this might be a refresh issue with Windows Explorer.

70
@berkland: I think I fixed the issue you were experiencing.  Please try the version at  http://www.dcmembers.../scurled/SCURLed.zip and let me know if it works now.

N.A.N.Y. 2019 / Re: NANY 2019 Release: SCURLed
« on: February 10, 2019, 09:48 PM »
1.) SCURLed should have a function to open the base directory of InternetExplorer Favorites resp. Firefox/Chrome Bookmarks and read them all automatically (full dir tree).

I'll think about this for Internet Explorer favourites.  Firefox and Chrome, however, do not use URL files for their bookmarks.

2.) SCURLed should have function to find all .LNK files starting from a base directory (e.g. partition D:\) and load them automatically.

I will add this in a future release.

Is it by design that the filename of .url files cannot be edited (that editbox is grayed out when I run the program)?

I left this out for now until I get some feedback on the LNK/URL data handling.  I will add the ability to change the name in a future release.

72
I selected 68 URL files in my TEST folder using File | Open URL Files, but the SCURLed.exe window would not re-open with the selcted files.

Do they load if you select them in Windows Explorer and then drag-n-drop them onto the URL list in SCURLed?

I'm pretty positive that "ts" value is a Unix timestamp.  Here's an AutoHotkey example showing how to convert it:

Code: Autohotkey [Select]
  1. myTimestamp := "636850944"
  2. sFormatString := "dddd, MMMM d, yyyy @ H:mm"
  3. FormatTime, myFormattedTime, % timeUnix2Human( myTimestamp ), % sFormatString
  4.  
  5. MsgBox, % myFormattedTime
  6.  
  7. timeUnix2Human( unixTimestamp )
  8. {
  9.     returnDate = 19700101000000
  10.     returnDate += unixTimestamp, s
  11.     Return returnDate
  12. }

This snippet returns a value of: Wednesday, March 7, 1990 @ 23:02

The year seems a bit off, but does that sound about right, @itge13?

What is NetTraffix?

75
Why is this not working with URL files?

Are you certain you're on the URL tab?  LNK files get loaded to the LNK tab; URL files get loaded to the URL tab.
