General Software Discussion / Re: Directory Opus 10

I just have to say that I have been dealing with Greg Perry over email for support over connectivity to SFTP servers. He has been extremely responsive and I think it is hard to find this level of personalized support.

I am still evaluating to ensure there isn't something that I might not be able to work with, but this product is really nice.

The renaming capability is one of the MAJOR features that has turned me on to the tool!

tomos, I might have to jump on that one but I am going to hold out "Just in case" it shows up with the 40% advertised on BdJ. I will give it the 60 day eval period to see if one pops up.

Directory Opus appears to have the featureset I require, other suites fall short on one key feature or another. Directory Opus also feels the most polished and well thought out. That said, I really have to find a way to justify spending this amount of money on a file manager. We'll see. Here's hoping.

Thanks for the heads up!

Perhaps Nudel can answer this, but does anyone else know if there is a way to find out if this is anywhere on the horizon for a BdJ offer or other similar discount on another site?

Care to share this? I would love to use it!

Tux, I am going to kindly ask you stop replying to anything I post.

Use the single window mode?  :D

Helpful as always........

Do you know how to have a new tab open up when launching a folder via the run dialog vice a whole new window? Right now, all requests via the run dialog or an external launcher result in another new xplorer2 window. I got my copy via trialpay as well :) My wife got a game, I got a piece of software to work with.


Just a quick question for everyone. How do you feel about the current version of xplorer2 or do you find yourself using another file manager?

After discussing the possibility of having FARR hook into system-wide hotkeys (WIN+R, WIN+E, etc.), he came across a registry hack to disable global system hotkeys. Once enabled, you can now enable hotkeys that were once reserved, in any application. I am now able to launch FARR using WIN+R and make it completely replace the Windows Run Dialog. Perhaps now mouser can work on cleaning up the network share and drive browsing code (browsing network shares) within FARR.

I have attached a reg file inside of a zip file for those who are interested, as well as a link to the article which we found to enable this functionality

Just add each letter (no commas, just right in a row. EX; RE would disable WIN+R and WIN+E) to the registry key.

Disable global hotkeys

This is confirmed to work in Windows 8 as well.

Polite Request

So we can get this thread back on topic, could further posts related to tne Opera/Webkit move, to https://www.donation...;topicseen#msg318078


May this thread rest in peace  :rip:

Because, if I make it myself, if I want a feature, I can just make it, and I can make it do exactly what I want, rather than risking getting things I don't need.

But that still begs the question...What exactly would you need now that most modern browsers cannot provide that only Opera does?

Is it the ever-useful Unite feature?

My input on the Opera debate: https://www.donation....msg317912#msg317912

I read your post. It's not dev's fault when even a simple <div> leaves spaces and other things unlike every other browser, etc. Google various standards like div and others and add 'opera' right after it to your search query

Like I say, I have never had a single broken page.  Closest thing I have had, is with things like Netflix saying "We don't support anything other than Firefox & Chrome & IE"  I mean...I know 1.2% of the market share doesn't sound like much, but put it down to raw numbers, and you are potentially pissing off 300 MILLION+ people!

You must be the minority because I've watched a large number of people have issues similar to what I encountered each time I tried opera.

HOORAY!!!! Perhaps now I can switch to the opera browser once things start to work, "gradually" :-D

 :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:


The Opera web browser has always been something of an also-ran in terms of its popularity on Windows PCs. Net Applications shows the current version of the desktop browser, Opera 12, has just a 1.47 percent market share, well behind Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox and Safari. However, Opera has gained more users as a browser for mobile phones and smartphones.

Today, Opera Software announced both a major milestone as well as a huge change for the rendering engine that the browser uses. First, the company revealed that the various versions of the Opera web browser have now collected a total of 300 million users. Jars Boilesen, the CEO of Opera Software, added, "On the final stretch up to 300 million users, we have experienced the fastest acceleration in user growth we have ever seen."

Opera Software also announced that future versions of the browser will make the transition to the WebKit and Chromium engine, which is used for Google's Chrome browser and Apple's Safari program. Opera Software had previously been using its own Presto rendering engine for its browser. Source

Opera press release

Does this mean opera will actually work now?!? No more broken pages?

OK, so I am coming into this cold but.....What exactly is Microsoft's role in UEFI? From what I am reading, it sounds like the UEFI has been around for a while and that the standard has been known...It sounds like Microsoft is requiring UEFI be turned on by default to have the "Windows 8 certified" logo applied. Now, since most users will not care to install anything else, I fail to see this becoming a problem. For those who are more tech saavy and want to install an alternative OS on the system, the issue will have to be known that they are buying a "Windows 8 certified" system, and as such, will have to load a private key into the firmware to install an alternative OS. It does not seem that this is intended to lock users in, but instead serve as a way to progress forward past the traditional bios.

In the end, I think techy users will still be able to do what we do, and regulars users will still be able to do what they do. Is there more to the story that I am missing? I fail to see the issue here...It sounds like Microsoft is forcing the alternative OSes (read: Linux) to progress forward...Yes, there is coreboot, but like Linux, there are dozens of alternatives to every one solution that is attempted to be setup as a "standard". I guess that is one of the problems of having such a diverse system.

General Software Discussion / Best JAVA IDE
« on: February 10, 2013, 10:14 AM »
Alright folks, let the religious war begin!

I am looking to start a good discussion on what is currently considered to be the best available FREEWARE IDE for Java development. I know there are a lot of factors to take into account when selecting an IDE (Debugging ability, feature-set, etc.). To me, the most important aspects of an IDE are autocomplete, express evaluation (hover over to get current value or diving further), and debugging ability.

With that said, I would like some input as to what others consider and even suggestions. I use eclipse...well, because most suggest it as the "de-facto" standard. I am not sure if this is because it is free, or because most Android development takes place in it. Android support is important for me, but it is not a must. I am having fun learning Java right now but I find eclipse to be a bit "clunky" with common place things like auto-complete. JDeveloper is looking nice and I think that the ADF mobile tools might fit in quite nicely once I get through my first Java app.

Anyways, let he discussion begin. What features are important to you? What IDE do you use and why?

but I shouldn't even be allowed to buy a UEFI-enabled motherboard when building my own system.

What ^ he ^ said

Living Room / Mid-range DSLR Camera Recommendations
« on: January 31, 2013, 10:34 AM »
My family is looking to replace our small digital camera with something more robust. We were previously the owners of a Canon EOS 50d but found that to be overkill for our needs. We are looking for a good mid-range DSLR camera. We are not very picky on what features it has, just that pictures are of decent quality and there is a good lens selection available should our needs change as we progress. Additionally, we would like to see an HD movie recording mode for short snippets while out and about.

Oh donationcoder gurus, we reach out to you!

To be honest, I've had a love-hate relationship with opera. I really have tried to like it. I've made it my default browser, uninstalling all others so I wouldn't be tempted to swap, for months at a time. The problem comes into play when multiple services or sites would fail to work. Yes, Opera does a good job explaining to me that many of these sites intentionally block opera and that there is nothing they can do. To a point, I understand this. My problem, really, is that all other browsers work fine. That, and the fact that they were late to the extensions game helped other browsers get a big foothold on that market. Extensions on opera leave a lot to be desired. Yes, Opera is nice, but I really cannot see making it my default browser any time soon.

But in the end, whatever works for you, use it. I will do the same and right now, that is Chrome as it has been for the last year.

Chrome! Plain and simple.

I would not use any other browser. It is fast, has the extensions I need to remain productive, and works on any page I throw at it. In fact, I can't remember ever seeing chrome crash since I started using it.

swriter -n TEMPLATE.FILEEXT (Opens a new file based off TEMPLATE.FILEEXT)
swriter -o TEMPLATE.FILEEXT (Opens the Template for editing)

So yes, this is completely relevant to how LibreOffice handles command line switches since most programs treat argv[1] as the file to open without any other switches specified.
