I'm not sure if you guys knew this but you can hook up scripts in 'FileHamster Advanced' that can be executed automatically or optionally; the optional setting places a 'run script' button in the FileHamster revision bubble so the user can simply choose when to execute the script by clicking on the button at revision time; FileHamster can use just about anything as a script but I've mostly just used common Windows batch files.

I thought this post relevent to the recent thread about having a tool that could either auto commit or optionally commit because you could hook up a commandline script to trigger your control commits.  Using enviroment variables, you can customize the script to work dynamically and commit the recently modified file into your primary version control solution.

FileHamster's Script feature is quite extensive; In addition to just triggering a script, a user can actually pause, enable or even configure FileHamster through command files:
Here's a link with more information on the script commandline interface:
http://wiki.mogware.net/index.php?title=FileHamster_ScriptPlugin_Commandline_Interface
*The environment variables that can be used within a script are listed at the bottom of this web page.

We've used this kind of control in past projects to disable FileHamster ( by simply copying a 'disable command file' to the root of a project's directory prior to a sync or get latest ) so we could prevent FileHamster from revisioning the files as they were being being updated.

Hi Folks,

another possible.... Oops!Backup http://www.altaro.com/ -cmpm (March 08, 2010, 05:50 AM)

Half-price on Bits today. Some interesting comments back-and-forth.  There is a real forum with moderate activity, always an excellent sign, and the developer handled the critical comments quite well on Bits.  History Explorer (Sweden) has an ad for Oops on their website, perhaps they see the programs as complementary or have a connection.

May be worth a spin.  They are from Malta and have an emphasis with community forums and such. Maybe a bit simple for most Donationcoder users at this time, only been around since December last year. I'm considering a trial.

Incidentally, the filehamster site was rated red on WOT, so I put in a little thread that should fix that.

Shalom,
Steven Avery

I read your post on WOT; thanks for noticing that and thanks again for making that post in our defense...Is there anything we can do as the developer or is this better handled by the users???

Strangely enough, we've had a few other sites do similar things but usually after an email they always lift the warnings; We are not sure where this is originating from but your comment about a potential competitor certainly got my gears churning...I’ll have to pay better attention to these issues in the future!

Hi Folks,

You can simply put in a post saying "hi .. thanks for noticing .. we can answer any questions" etc.  The folks there are pretty savvy and what usually happens is that one or two folks check the site a couple of ways, makes sure all is fine, and then a bunch give a good rating and it becomes green.

There are lots of possible causes, when a site only has a few comments, it could simply be someone playing games, so unless there are many negative comments of absurdity, I would not be too concerned.  Of course you might want to increase your awareness level of such situations, as you say.

The thread is at:

filehamster by mogware
http://www.mywot.com/en/forum/5860-filehamster-by-mogware

And has a link to the WOT-page.  Technically I put it in the wrong section, but that should make little difference, the mods can move it if they want.  There has already been significant improvement, so check it again in a few hours.

Shalom,
Steven Avery
