Is there any chance you can replace the Windows OS on your computer with a Linux distro (too many available to give an example)? Then you won't ever have this dilemma again :tellme:.

Screenshot Captor / Re: shortcut keys not working
« on: June 10, 2021, 12:40 PM »
By default, what you want is how it normally works.
Are you running SSC using the Run as Administrator option? (Can be set at the shortcut, manually) or use a replacemant tool for UAC (as deployed in some corporate controled computers)

I did try learning and using Autohotkey, but again not luck.

That is not the easiest one to start with because of its somewhat cryptic syntax; I've dabbled in AutoIt3, but AHK has been a real challenge and I've never really picked that one up (even though I've done quite a few programming languages).

What programming language have you tried?
You should use the best tool for the job:
Most suitable to process would be JS (Javascript), as that's what the first 2 letters of the word JSON come from... Node.js should be the way to go for a command-line tool.
Next choice up (assuming a Windows OS) should be C#/.NET as that makes it very easy using one of the JSON libraries (NewtonSoft comes to mind)
And the runner up would probably be Java, but there are some that don't like that (for probably the wrong reasons), where also plenty of libraries are available, org.json and Google GSON are popular choices.

Pointing at the start of the thread is probably more useful: Review

Do not think I am too dumb to program and use my own tool for that matter.
Please don't get me wrong, I've not tried to suggest even anything near that, sorry if you think I did :huh:

In my humble opinion a program that limit text to a speficific character amount is made for such matter.
Please elaborate, as I do not see any relation between a tool to gather text to be posted in a web form (as initially requested) and a password generator.
Any decent password generator tool has a setting for the length of the password(s), so using this tool to provide a password of a specific length feels counter-intuitive.

add password generator please

Why would you need that to write a text? There are already roughly 1 million password generators (or more), rich and poor, why try to add one where (nearly) nobody needs one?

This should be a nice, single purpose tool, please don't add bloatware to it.

Not sure what kind of tooling/IDE you use for development, but I've been very content using VSCode with the Gitlens plugin. Admittedly, I'm 'only' using it with Github (and TFS/AzureDevOps-Git at work), but Gitlab sounds no more than natural to also being supported.

When you're using the Visual Studio IDE, there is the official Gitlab extension available in the marketplace, adding full Gitlab support to VS20xx.

As a direct alternative to SourceTree, Gitkraken is, AFAICS, free for open source Github and Gitlab repo's, so that could also be an option.

And then there's the 'Classic' TortoiseGIT extension for Windows Explorer, quite similar to TortoiseHg and TortoiseSVN.

My version is newer v4.41.0 than the one on the web v4.36.1...
Don't understand anything :-[

Even mouser himself is confuzzled by all those version numbers, so please don't expect anyone to ever grasp that ;D ;D ;D

PublicDomainVic / Re: URLister thread (v0.3.0)
« on: March 25, 2021, 02:10 AM »
On a UHD monitor, URLister on left half of screen, browser (Edge) on right half, both stay open.  I close tabs as needed, after a number of URLs have been opened, via URLister.

Now that you have reported these kind of issues with multiple applications, I suspect there is something not up to par with your graphics card drivers or monitor setup.

LaunchBar Commander / Re: open folder by mousemove
« on: March 13, 2021, 03:24 AM »
It catched my eye that the initial topic in this thread got completely lost in the discussion.
That's probably the reason why this topic has been silent for so long :P

Phrase was "meet at 9.7 ppl join"
You see, the dot seperates two sentences and is not meant as fraction seperator in that phrase.
That is a syntax error. After the period should either be a space or a new-line.
That's one of thre reasons I wrote:
replace all CR's and LF's with a space,

The 9.7 aint a value, its two values.
That is dependent on the current Locale. For US locale it is a single number (with fraction) for DE/NL it's an invalid number (thousands separator but not long enough) or two numbers.

According to the specs, defined by vevola, it's better to only use space as a separator, and not care about letters, digits or special characters.

My problem for now is 'how to make differences between real words and no words that are between spaces/quotes/point or comma terminated etc etc etc'

I'd replace all CR's and LF's with a space, then reduce any duplicate spaces to single space, trim leading and trailing spaces off and use one of these solutions (Depending on Delphi version used) to split the string into an array, then get the length of that array/list for the number of words.

So far you've been provided about 5 possible solutions, but you obviously haven't tried any of them yet.

Please try to explain how or where you are going to connect a kvm switch here?

I'm also planning to order the parts to make my own solution following the instructions linked to
In most countries there are shops that supply an assortment of AliExpress goods from local stock, their prices are somewhat higher than the Ali prices, of course, but they manage to deliver in days instead of months, on average. You just have to find the right shop in your country :tellme:

Are you running PT as Administrator?

A few questions to ask yourself:
- How is your computer connected to your router? (Some Wifi connections are really slow, wired is king!)
- Is your router (or in fact the entire chain from signal entrance into the build up to the computer) capable of handling the increased speed? (Some have a WAN port with only 100 MBit/s...) (Seems to be covered)

you should be able to connect to it using Remote Desktop Protocol
There are enough free software tools, already mentioned above, that don't need a Windows Pro license.

Assuming the OP hasn't responded for a couple of days, he may already have a solution in place, and just forgot to mention that here. :-\

I was thinking a direct connection via a cable

Well, assuming both laptops have an ethernet connector (though that's less and less common for consumer laptops these days), you can connect both to the same router using a cat5e or cat6 cable and have the benefit of the high speed connection for both the connection between the laptops, and the maximum internet speed attainable. The only connection available that's (potentially) faster than ethernet (assuming you have a router with 1 GBit/s ports) is a Wifi 6 connection using 4 antennas on all equipment, but there are not too many laptops providing that kind of wifi setup.

Interesting concept :up:

I think it will require at least 2 parts:
  • Computer-side that's monitoring the chat, YouTube counter or whatever
  • Hardware to switch the bulb

For the hardware, many ESP based devices are available, like Sonoff S20/S26 or Shelly, but it may need a firmware replacement as the regular API isn't that easy. I'm currently involved in the development of ESPEasy, that is very usable on ESP8266 and ESP32 based devices. With simple http GET requests you can control such device, but, some assembly required.

I know that a few years back, many developers set up lava lamps to show the commit pre-checks and build results of their CI/CD pipelines, not sure if that is still used much, as it requires physical availability of people to see the lights. Nowadays, with most of development wfh/remote there must be other ways ;D

Screenshot Captor / Re: Can Settings be Exported to an ini File?
« on: January 10, 2021, 06:29 AM »
Settings for the regularly installed Screenshot Captor are saved in an .ini file, in directory C:\Users\YOURACCOUNTNAME\Documents\DonationCoder\ScreenshotCaptor, and is called, surprisingly, ScreenshotCaptor.ini
For a portable install it is normally written in the directory where Screenshot Captor is run from. (Unless you wrote in that file where to save the settings, but then you of course would know where that is ;))

So any normal backup of your Documents folder, or portable applications folder, should restore your settings (haven't re-done my settings in ages, they just moved with me on several computer replacements).

My laptop will need to dynamically use the two wifi connections for each thread.
Can you please elaborate on that? I'm trying to understand what you want to achieve.

I love the alternative mug designs, almost by default, but this is one you could love to hate ;D
I do like it though :Thmbsup:
