Find And Run Robot / FARR featured on DOWNLOAD.COM

Find and Run Robot keeps your hands right where you want them, if you're a keyboard addict. This launcher seems to have been designed for people who want to keep their digits pounding the plastic, so every step of the program has been keyed for those with quick fingers.

General Software Discussion / Is XP really that good?
« on: November 28, 2008, 12:51 AM »
Some good folks around DC may recall that I have opinions...  :tellme:

I am a huge fan on Linux, Unix and most things other than M$ OSes.  That being said, I have been running Win XP for several years.  I have a fairly tweaked system that I don't screw with much and I have been stable for a long time.  I recently upgrade to 4 GB RAM because 1) I could and 2) I thought it might improve my performance.  I have been running 2 GB for most of my XP career.

I'm currently running all of my normal stuff plus Google Chrome and have used only 1 GB RAM.  I'm using Process Explorer and I have been sitting at 1GB.  I've got  8 freaking tabs open plus I'm watching a movie* with VLC on top of all the other RAM sucking things I run normally.  WTF?  Is XP really that good at RAM management?

I'm spoiled enough to have a whole P4 system dedicated to PCLinuxOS.  It's cools and snappy; i'm not sure it's worth switching from XP.  Have we finally reached the point where local resources are a 2nd priority?  My Dell D600 laptop sucks (explainative) with 1024 RAM, why is my desktop so much more usable with the same free RAM?

I always want to believe Linux is better with RAM than XP; but I'm having a hard time making a case for desktop use.   What am I missing?

Coding Snacks / Window Tags
« on: April 01, 2008, 12:25 PM »
This is something I could use occasionally.  I have 10 windows open, but I need/want to switch back and forth between 2 or 3 of them a lot.
Say I'm testing a PHP script and I have the server in a putty session.  The php manual page in a browser window and I'm testing the script in another browser window.  I'd like to hit a hotkey to tag each of those windows with so I can switch to them quickly.  That way if I get an email or some other app changes focus, I don't have to fight to get by alt-tab order fixed again.

So Putty is my focused window, I type Ctrl-T, 1 and tag it.  Php Manual Browser is focus I hit Ctrl-T, 2.  Testing Browser Ctrl-T, 3.  So when I want to switch to putty, I just hit Ctrl-1.  Ctrl-3 to test again.  Ctrl-1 to look at my php.log.  Ctrl-2, back to the manual.

Ctrl-Shift-1, ctrl-alt-1 or whatever makes it easy to avoid other hot key combos.

Any takers?  Is this useful?
