N.A.N.Y. 2018 / Re: NANY 2018 Pledge: Ready Bible Study
« on: December 24, 2017, 11:35 AM »
I looked at the website for the Recovery Bible. I'm not sure if I can request that text. It's only New Testament so that would be interesting in itself to integrate into my application.

The site I looked at is: Recovery Bible

It has three Bible translations:

1) King James 1769
2) American King James 1999 (just a simple replacement of some 'archaic' words, mainly Thee, Thou, etc.)
3) Lexham English Bible 2012 (from Logos Bible software - more info)

There are several other free to use translations that I could make available.

N.A.N.Y. 2018 / NANY 2018 Release: Ready Bible Study v2.90
« on: December 19, 2017, 08:53 PM »
Version 2.90 of this program was just uploaded. I merged in most of the functionality of two other applications. I wanted to add it here as it involved several hundred hours of work. I'm not trying to proselytize to anyone. I was just amazed that AutoHotkey could manage 40 megabytes of text files as fast as it does to create a working Bible Study application. I heavily modified a number of Bibles, Commentaries, Dictionaries, etc. into INI files and used the R_INI library to access them. It's just a good example of AutoHotkey capabilities.

Users may press F6 to start Audio playback from any displayed text. Pressing F6 multiple times places items into an Audio queue. Audio may be paused or stopped. If Audio is playing when the program is exited, the user will be prompted to restart from the last item in the queue when the program is started next time. [that took a lot of work]

There are many more screenshots on the program's Blog page.

N.A.N.Y. 2018 / NANY 2018 Release: Shortcuts Creator
« on: December 19, 2017, 08:31 PM »
A program to create hotstring shortcuts for applications, documents, web pages and regular text. Users can drag existing shortcuts or documents over the program window and it will prompt for each item asking what letters you wish to use to launch each item. The program actively updates a running Shortcuts script so it requires users to install AutoHotkey. The program looks to see if items are already in an active window and brings it to the front before launching any item.

Most hot string shortcuts can safely be typed from anywhere, but, users can also press both Shift keys to display a Shortcuts Launcher window.

Living Room / Re: Windows Logger and Hung Process Monitoring
« on: January 24, 2016, 07:44 AM »

Those apps are written in AutoIT. The Windows API function that determines whether a process is 'hung' is called IsHungWindowApp. LOL  It's probably more politically correct to say 'frozen' or 'unresponsive' these days.

The program name is no problem to change, I had noticed also other apps with the same or similar names. Since I'm new to this forum, I didn't pay attention that my two user guides in PDF format didn't attach. I will put them into a ZIP file and update the original post.

They will give you more detailed information.

Living Room / Windows Logger and Hung Process Monitoring
« on: January 23, 2016, 04:34 PM »
Last summer I developed an application to log time spent in Windows applications, thinking it would be handy to monitor where my kids are going on the internet, or if a manager at work believed one of his/her employees were not doing their assigned work. This application is call Windows Logger.

From my work on windows logging I noticed that Windows OS has one function that determines whether a Window associated with a process is hung or frozen. We were having staff at work complain about slowness on both PCs and Virtual Desktops, so I decided to split this function off onto an application called Process Monitor.

In order to receive email notifications I used a freeware program called File Alert Monitor to watch folders on our network where these applications keep their log files. File Alert Monitor gave me a visual notification of a PC having performance issues. The last step was to create Email Alerter which sent me an email whenever a File Alert window popped up.

With all of this, I can tell if certain PCs are encountering a lot of hung processes and contact the users.

If anyone is interested in these applications, I will post them. I have attached the two PDF help documents.

Living Room / An Exercise Reminder app (in Autohotkey)
« on: January 21, 2016, 07:08 PM »
A couple of months ago I ran across an article on workplace exercises, specifically stretching exercises you can do at work or at home. The articles pictures demonstrated how to do each exercise and for how long. I decided that, as an IT professional, this was something many of us can benefit from. The resulting application was written in Autohotkey.

The major groups are: hands, legs, shoulders, neck and back. To these groups, I added Eye exercises and reminders for Aerobics and Circuit Training. The Setup screen shows all of the options users can choose from.

I have posted much more about the application at Exercises Reminder App and hope some of you will check it out and give me feedback.

Thank you for your comments. I have several other apps written in AutoIT or AutoHotkey to share. What is the best area of the Forum to do this in?

The apps are below. Just looking for suggestions from you about advertising them.

1) Windows Activity Logger - for parents to see where their children have been browsing OR for managers to check on staff (AutoIT)

2) Hung Process Monitor - put on business PCs to monitor slow or misbehaving applications, reports back those issues via email to an Administrator. On a network, a global log folder is used by the PCs and a global settings file can be updated which updates options for the PCs. It can also self update to newer versions when they are dropped into an update folder. (AutoIT)

3) Document activity watcher - for home or business usage, reports via email if a PC is updating a lot of documents per minute (Office docs, databases, etc.). This has helped us catch PCs that have Crypto malware on them, PCs that are not only encrypting local files but also files on network shared drives. Keeps a Log file and reports unusual activity to an Administrator or a Home user. Very configurable. (AHK)

4) Exercise Reminder - mostly for those who sit at a PC most of the day (or night). Reminds users of Aerobic, Stretching and Circuit training exercises. Exercises and times are configurable. Stretching exercises are displayed on screen at preset intervals with or without voice prompting. (AHK)

5) (not finished yet) Poetry Manager - an app to create, manage and post Poetry collections. (AHK)

N.A.N.Y. 2016 / NANY 2016: Bible Reference and Study Application
« on: January 13, 2016, 08:40 PM »
I probably missed the NANY 2016 cut, but have posted a Bible Reference app I wrote in AutoHotkey recently. It contains over 150 cross references on various Bible topics. Users can choose from 5 fonts and 3 Bible translations. Many web links are also part of the app as well as a Bible browser, 3 Daily Reading plans and 4 Devotionals. The program has text to speech for reading in all text windows.

The program also tracks what the user has read via colors and saves the items clicked on. It also keeps a Session time and total reading time. Even though the program uses INI text files, it searches any Bible in less than 3 seconds, displaying 2,600 searched verses in that time.

All associated data files are self-extracting from the program. Like other AutoHotkey apps, just copy it to any folder, run it and it will extract data files and a PDF Help file.

It can be downloaded from: Michaels Tech Notes
Screenshots, a short video and other info are on the same blog. I have added two more Tabbed pages to the app since the video was uploaded.

All comments are very welcome.
