Android Apps / Re: WhenLast (Android app) - v2.14 Beta - Dec 31, 2016

Sure it does!
Aha. So it does!  Not looking hard enough, clearly :-[

Given where I am, I've signed up for DropBox so at least this will work for me in the future, but as I've almost completely decommissioned the old phone now, I'm not going to try the synch process for real.

However... I gave Whenlast permission to do its thing with DropBox and sure enough, it's created a folder (apps/whenlast) in DropBox. I've got automatic synch switched on (I've got a decent mobile data plan and I figure this is going to be a relatively small amount of data that's being moved) and Whenlast says it's done its stuff in that respect.

The Whenlast folder in Dropbox was empty until I created a new item -- at that point, a sync folder was created and a file created in it.

So should the process have created a sync file once synchronisation was enabled?

[For what it's worth, the normal export process DOES create files as expected on my new phone. Whether this is down to differences between Lollipop and Nougat, a permissions issue on the old phone or a result of opting into the beta programme, I can't guess.]

What do you think when you see this picture?

"I know that place . . . managed to help lose a boot belonging to a friend of mine over the edge of those cliffs once when a bunch of us were there and messing around. Not very intelligent, and the one booted friend wasn't too happy.
Great birdwatching (cliff/seabirds) there: if you have a pair of binoculars it's amazing. Bits fall off of those cliffs reasonably regularly -- if they are really cycling around there, they must be bored with [regular] life. (Maybe they need to get more interesting jobs?). Wondering why the PDF... "
Cliffs of Moherw

Further thoughts:
there's a tower on the cliffs built in the 1830's by a local landowner called O'Brien. He was also a member of parliament (MP) in London. The stone in the area of the cliffs is a limestone slate, which is still quarried in large sheets an inch or two thick.
The story goes that O'Brien made a bet with a few other MP's in London, that he could build a wall two inches thick, four foot high and a quarter of a mile long. He won the bet.
Couldn't find a great image, but here one:

General Software Discussion / Re: YNAB moving to a subscription model
« Last post by TucknDar on Today at 02:12:59 AM »
I'm re-trialling nYNAB and although it's not perfect and I think it's too expensive, I do like it. I appreciate that I can alter my budget in the mobile app and on any PC. I tried Financier - www.financier.io - which is a good alternative, but the (single) developer is open about not wanting to put much work into new features and basically just maintain it. That would be fine with me if it had scheduled transactions and a mobile app, which it doesn't.

I think I'll start paying for the subscription once my trial runs out. Budgeting for the subscription shouldn't be too difficult, after all ;)
Clipboard Help+Spell v2.42 portable-default  move clips to recycle bin enbled

Excellent program.

I just upgraded to 2.42.

The default is to move old clips to recycle bin.  Suggest untick.  You had corrected this before - easy to forget on new version.


Excellent program, thanks.
I'll do it. Send me the DonationCredits and I'll PM you a gift link.

Sure it does!
it is probably another problem - creators update contains small cmd based applet called mbr2gpt, which convert mbr disk to gpt disk without files loss - i have read that it should be used through cmd, but i met on other forums at least 1 case where, it seems, it got at work automatically and tried to convert disk to gpt - it is especially provided for 7 to 10 upgrade cases, because 7 doesnt serve fully uefi

if it is your case you should ascertain what is exactly partition style on yor booting disk, i mean disk set in uefi\bios as booting - you could do it for example with partition wizard bootable cd started from cd - if it is gpt style there will be small 100mb partition efi on disk formatted in fat32 - and then use system applet bcdboot to write bootloader files to this partition (or just from 7 installer cd, using diskpart commands list disk, etc)

dual boot system is in this case of no consequence - you should be always able to add other 7 to bcd in case of problems

what partition should be active - of course with folder boot and bootmgr file - in partition wizard you can check folders\files on partition - just to mark partition and choose explore partition in menu - but only on mbr disk of course; system partition 100mb on mbr will be formatted in ntfs, not fat32

in gpt style disk there is no active partition - instead is system partition efi (esp - efi system partition), with windows boot manager files

sorry for my english, but i am in great hurry!

eventuallly, if you can use bcdboot, from installer cd or from recovery partition\folder, if possible (or from system, is in system32) - command something like

bcdboot c:\windows /s x: /f uefi

/s x: means

system partition letter = x: - you should assign letter to efi for example in diskpart, or in partition wizard, because normally this partition is without letter - letter is of no consequence for functioning because partition is recognized by uefi by guid in gpt partition table, not letter, letter is only for bcdboot to identify it; x of course only example

or maybe there are other commands in bcdboot automatically recognizing system partition efi without letter - i am no expert in bcdboot

another possibility - you should make functional 7 on hdd, and repair start on ssd from this 7, for example using easy bcd - easy bcd could repair both mbr and gpt start

to make funcional 7 on hdd you should mark partiton as active in diskpart, write codes on start sector of disk and active partiton (from cd - commands bootrec /fixmbr, and /fixboot), and write bootloader to active partition, command in bcdboot in 7 (all this with detached ssd)

bcdboot c:\windows /s c: /f mbr

to write bootloader bcdboot uses boot files templates from system registry folder, so you would not have systems choice in 10 - you should add both 7 to new bootloader in easy bcd

on hdd you can have mbr style, only on booting ssd gpt\uefi - partition style on data disk is of no consequence

to use bcdboot is probably important, because there are slight differences in bcd file for mbr and gpt; but easy bcd also can write right bcd

Or did anyone bite the bullet and update to the subscription model?

I waited until the new version ripened some, then moved to the subscription model.

I prefer subscription to pay-per-upgrade. I want the developers to prioritize "bugs that will make subscribers quit" over "features that will make non-customers into single-purchase customers."
Developer's Corner / Help fixing bugs in AutoHotKey SHIFT/SHIFT activate key
« Last post by jeff_eisenberg on April 29, 2017, 06:36:07 PM »
I'm trying to complete an autohotkey script where you can double tap any SHIFT key twice and follow it by a certain letter to activate a macro.
I have the following script but i have two "bugs" i can't figure out how to solve. I've tried other forums with no luck. Hoping someone can help me out.
I'm a little new at this.

Bug 1:  The macro is activated if you press any letter in between the two SHIFTs where it should only be activated if you press the SHIFTs exclusively. For example, pressing SHIFT, s, SHIFT, d will enable the macro.

Bug 2:  I'm not sure how this happens but with the following code, I periodically get all or some of the macros to activate while i'm typing. It seems to happen when I type the first capital letter in a sentence. But only sometimes. For example... "bla bla bla profiles. S"

I've fooled around with the timeouts but that doesn't seem to make much of a difference. Any help is appreciated.


~Shift Up::
If (A_ThisHotkey == A_PriorHotkey && A_TimeSincePriorHotkey < 400)
    Double_SHIFT := true
    Sleep, 2000
    Double_SHIFT := false

; Press a key within two seconds after double tapping the Shift key, to activate an action:
#If (Double_SHIFT)
    FormatTime, CurrentDateTime,,MM/dd/yy - hh:mmtt
    SendInput %CurrentDateTime%
            Double_SHIFT :=false
    a:: MsgBox, Test
    s:: MsgBox, Test
    f:: MsgBox, Test
