Finished Programs / Re: Right click menu
« on: February 14, 2010, 10:25 PM »
Only in order to avoid having to open a new topic:

another option is Mmm free. http://hace-software.com/mmm.shtml
MMM+ is fine, automatically keep the context menu bloat-free... is there a free application which can do that (and is, optionally, still developed)?

General Software Discussion / Re: What's your preferred File Manager
« on: February 14, 2010, 09:07 PM »
Looks like a valid replacement for the FAR Manager, thank you for the hint.  :up:

1905
Ah, OK. Now it makes sense.  :)

1906
They forgot to mention Vim and Emacs. Again.

1907
But I guess your remark was meant to target Microsoft and the differences Vista and Win7 brought? Which is pretty off-topic, since we're discussing Editors, and the post you (part-)quoted was about standardized keybindings.
Hm, it was about the "user interface" actually, which is not restricted to the keybindings. So I was, maybe, wrong.  :)

1908
one very good thing that has resulted is a standardized user interface
Which they effectively broke up with now.

If I could get Emacs to look and feel like a Windows editor, this might be a viable solution.
There are a few approaches to make Emacs feel rather native on Windows, like ErgoEmacs:



However, a Vim or an Emacs with Windows' default key bindings would eliminate all of their efficiency immediately IMO.

1909
Nothing's wrong with Paypal.

1910
jumping/selecting/deleting at word boundaries can be done by any normal Windows editor
Yes, word by word. Not so fine.

When I need "powerful navigation", VIM tends not to be good enough anyway - Visual Studio class browser and "find all references" (et cetera) is so much more productive.
VS? And two lines later you state something about "superfast"?
I may have missed something.

Living Room / Re: Yea, I won't be getting an iPad anytime soon
« on: February 12, 2010, 06:42 PM »
And what if 4 people call you at the same time?
Another thing the iPad can never handle.

1912
the choices seem to boil down to: PSPad and Notepad++. But neither has the powerful regex support I have grown used to with EPP.
Tried GVim? The "best text editor" thingy on the website was obviously written by someone who did not spend more than 5 minutes with any of the tested applications. (Or, at least, was not be willing to RTFM.)

After all, the choice of your preferred text editor depends on many more factors. Just comparing features is not so important, it's also about usability and efficiency. And, after it replaced N++ for me and I have spent some time with it, I think there is no text editor out there which could beat Vim/GVim there.

But it is, probably, just a matter of usage.

edit:
Vim comes with an own regex implementation and a good documentation for it.

"Alternatives to the iPad" ... glue four iPhones together ...  :P

1914
Hmm, it is indeed a sign of consequence that Google started their own social network (no. 359857, I presume).
Now we all have the choice: Use Facebook and lose your privacy or use Buzz and lose your privacy. Leaked user data vs. profiling.

I think I'd choose none.

Living Room / Re: Essay - Blogging: a great pastime for the elderly
« on: February 06, 2010, 06:55 PM »
Twitter is the new way of blogging for those who only blogged to spread links or "funny" stuff. It can (and probably will) never be a replacement for blogs. You just can't put too much of a story into 140 characters. Maybe the number of "click these links to see something reeeaaaaally funny" decreased because of Twitter. I don't miss them.

Living Room / Re: Browser Wars: Why did you choose yours?
« on: February 06, 2010, 06:39 PM »
telling people that YOU and ONLY YOU are correct when it comes to giving Firefox its acronym
You obviously misread me there. It was not me, it was the Mozilla people. Which is kind of a difference, right?
It is so easy to defame people for things they never said...

Oh well, EOD.

I will not tolerate any further thread hijacks that are for purely semantical or fanboyish style comments designed to generate flames/start an online feud.
This was never my intention. It is about pros and cons of browsers here, so what's wrong with contributing?

It should, too.

I love how this topic, started yet another argument because Tuxman decided that every browser in the world is 'plagiarizing' Mozilla Firefox, which, I must admit, is getting on my nerves.
Opera does not, but Opera better should.

Why does anyone prefer the copy?

Living Room / Re: Browser Wars: Why did you choose yours?
« on: February 06, 2010, 10:29 AM »
My objection to other browsers is that they try to be a Firefox copy. Once they changed that, they might come back and tell me.

Tuxman: So, you are basically saying that any browser which has extensions is a clone of firefox, is that right?
No,  but stepwise adopting special Firefox stuff like Adblock Plus and Greasemonkey is not innovative at all.

It really gets old especially with the opera crowd and tabbed browsing.
... which they did not have first.
