In the 'nice numbers' category (and because I just missed the palindrome count 552255, yesterday :huh:)

For those that missed it...
55 + 22 = 77

  • On the settings pages, one button has the caption 'Edit focused' and another 'Remove selected'. IMHO, 'focused' should be replaced by 'selected', as focused is a seldom used term in this context.

Hmm, not 'fixed'. You can select more than one row in the ListView and then remove them in one go. With edit you can only do that for one row at a time (the last clicked row, which has the focus...). IMHO there need to be a distinction. Suggestions are welcome for other wording.
Well, 'Edit' actually works on the last selected item only, thus can be confusing to users (as the focused item isn't recognizable from other selected items). So an alternative solution could be to only enable that button when exactly 1 item is selected, less confusion, and 'selected' is correct.
Another solution could be to edit the selected items in succession (but I doubt if that would really be useful/helpful or less confusing).

the name of this app is it's hard to remember and pronounce
Well, SIMON then? (Shortcut In Menu Or Not) :P

+1  :Thmbsup:


  • Besides .exe files, also .e and .ex extensions are found, and, after adding com to the list of extensions, also .c (and probably .co) files are listed. I'd expect these extensions to match exactly, and .e or .ex files are not executable files, AFAICS.

N.A.N.Y. 2020 / NANY 2020: scss-loop-template-processor
« on: December 28, 2019, 08:16 AM »
NANY 2020 Entry Information

Application Name scss-loop-template-processor
Version v1.2.0.0
Short Description Process SCSS (css preprocessing) @for loops to @each loops including only used classes.
Supported OSes Any OS that runs .NET 4.7.2 (only tested on Windows)
Web Page scss-loop-template-processor on Ath's DCMembers site
Download Link from above DCMembers page
System Requirements
  • Command-line or script
  • .NET 4.7.2 or newer
Version History
  • - December 2019 - Cleanup code, added this documentation, prepare for NANY 2020 release
  • - November 2019 - Added enable/disable-lines-start/end processing
  • - October 2019 - Working as intended
  • - October 2019 - Initial development
Author Ath

During development we use many generated classes for 'pixel-perfect' alignment of page elements.
(The proprietary platform used doesn't allow for direct html or css tags to be applied on elements, only classes can be applied, and to override previous, platform-standard, css often !important needs to be added to the css.)
Both the template and the generated output are @include'd in the files proveded to the scss compiler, but those from the templated are disabled by using an @if that is defined in the template-output to be false on second evaluation. During development the template-output is a (nearly) empty file.

Process a template with a set of numeric-postfixed constants to replace @for loops by @each loops intended as scss preprocessing, to reduce the number of generated css classes.

Planned Features
None at the moment, requests accepted.

Command-line tool, so no usable screenshots... :-[

  • Unpack the zip file
  • Provide a list of classes with a numeric postfix
  • Provide a scss template with @for loops

Using the Application
Run from a command-line or use in a script.

Remove the unpacked files (no configuration is saved anywhere).

Use in a script as a step before releasing a web application having scss files included.

Known Issues
None so far.

Replace $ by 3, that's how I could open it :-[

N.A.N.Y. 2020 / Re: 1 Key Browsing
« on: December 26, 2019, 03:06 AM »
Very nicely done :Thmbsup:

Question: can we have configurable Global Key configuration? (or the ahk source to customize it myself) I have a conflict with ctrl-shift-F for the TabSearch plugin, I've been using for 'ages' and I've become quite accustomed to :huh:

+1 what mouser says.

I'd love to see & compare both, so @anandcoral, please publish your creation when you think it's ready  :Thmbsup:

Which do you prefer? The non-panorama or the panorama?
The panorama, as the contrast between the sky and the ground in the non-panorama is so high that the ground is only a blur to me

If you insist on using regexes for the conversions, then sed can do it. When downloading sed for Windows, be sure to get the latest updated version. A GNU version of sed is required as BSD doesn't support the lowercase conversion \L.
This script should be saved as an ASCII/ANSI file for the y command to work properly, when saved as UTF-8, sed will complaint about the original and replacement strings not being of the same length :huh:
# Save this file as ANSI or the y command will cause an error
# Convert to lowercase
# Convert all spaces to _
# Remove special characters (][ must be first in range, - must be last in range!)
# Replace diacritics by non-diacritics (to be completed)

I tried to find all diacritics I could enter on my US-international keyboard layout, I may have left out some you might need. Please add what you need and is missing.
Separator character used is : on all script lines

Command-line should be something like:
sed -r -f above_script.txt <input.txt

If you really want a 2TB drive for less money, then get this Samsung 970 EVO Plus model (The 970 EVO Plus is the successor of the 970 EVO)

Find And Run Robot / Re: Possible new facility: runas for aliases
« on: November 20, 2019, 01:19 AM »
Where is FARR more secure in asking for a password opposed to entering it in a Windows CMD prompt (without any character echo'ed)?  :huh:  If a keyboard hook would be installed on your system it could see the password in both cases. And I don't know if it's even possible for an application to induce the standard Windows popup-prompt for a password.

Find And Run Robot / Re: Possible new facility: runas for aliases
« on: November 18, 2019, 01:50 PM »
Can you use the cmd internal command runas? (Not a FARR user... :-[)

Open a cmd prompt and enter runas/? to get the default help on available command-line arguments, or visit for that same helptext and some examples.

JGPaiva's GridMove and Ahk Tools / Re: GridMove: Grids Here
« on: November 17, 2019, 09:26 AM »
They probably where .grid files, but the board doesn't support those as attachments, so they should be packed in a zip file.

Living Room / Re: Migrating from Ymail to Gmail
« on: November 15, 2019, 12:06 PM »
You can have both 'brands' of email next to each other in the same browser, no problem at all. Just inform all of your contacts of your changed address, after copying your contacts to gmail, several procedures can be found here.

Assuming all drivers are up to date,
Might it be related to a 4k monitor on less than 60Hz refresh? That usually only gives display-lag, not Windows-lag, but it might be of influence :huh:

Do you have the Logitech mouse software installed? It might help to uninstall that (with reboot after), as it has repeatedly caused issues like you mention, in the past.

Also some antivirus software (I'm looking at you Avast >:() can cause 'lagginess' when dragging Windows around.

Living Room / Re: How is this old interface called?
« on: November 06, 2019, 12:56 AM »
How can we automate them and can we inject data into them by-passing their tedious interface?
You can try to feed the application using my WinSendKeys tool.
It will probably take some trial and error, but as it mimics keyboard entry pretty well, it should work. Be sure to have a look at the delay options (f.e. between characters sent) to fix issues when characters are missing on input, as some DOS type programs have their own keyboard input routines that can be a bit finicky.

General Software Discussion / Re: Best app to learn SQL on
« on: November 05, 2019, 01:13 AM »
I understood that the various implementations all had distinct dialects so I guess I was looking for something reasonably generic to get me started
Well, if you need a good standards-compliant SQL, then PostgreSQL is a good candidate. It's very well documented, supported, and as much Open Source as it gets. Find it here:
I'm not too thrilled with the currently provided tools to manage it, though, they're pretty darn slow, last time I used that (been a while), but it gets the job done.

About Apache configuration:
AFAICS, you should start reading (and some experimenting) on this Apache wiki page about DirectoryListings and how to configure that. I have no LAMP/WAMP installation available, so am unable to provide more detailed pointers, sorry.

About the .style.css file needing to be copied into each directory:
This is caused by this line in .index.php:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="./.style.css">
It points to that file in the current directory ( ./ in front of the filename is a relative location).

By placing the .style.css file into a specific directory like directorystyle in the root of your website, and changing the above line into:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/directorystyle/.style.css">
you are addressing the file at it's absolute location, and has to be stored only once at the server.
Renaming the file and moving it to the default styles directory is also an option, ofcourse.

The period as the first character of the filename makes the file invisible on *nix OS's, and it can be omitted if the file is moved out of the directories that are visible to the enduser. The name used in .index.php has to be adjusted accordingly, as is to be expected ;)
The same goes for the .index.php file, after you have moved it out of the visible directories using the first pointer in this post.

Any chance you can share those index.php and style.css files to see if a fix might actually be possible in the index.php file?

I'm not an expert on Apache, but if al else fails, you could create logical links to the 2 files in each subfolder, avoiding duplicate files, and keeping a single point of maintenance.
