Re: Defender Injector v1.0

Nice. 8)

MS Defender is one of the three prongs in my extremely low overhead Windows security solution (the other two being Sentinel and WinPatrol), but I occasionally have to add (temporary) exceptions to it by hand.

I'm sure Defender Injector will make itself useful.

Re: ghostwriter

I wouldn't call myself a specialist... more like an obsessed fan. ;) My current solution is to resort to whatever text editor I feel comfortable writing with and just use the easy to recall Markdown syntax. Two problems with such a strategy: no easy preview and no ready integration with my preferred...

The problem was not in your browser but with the provider I was using- imgbox, thank you for notifying me. I am tempted to call it a shitty service but perhaps this is a temporary issue.
Thanks for letting me know. Kind of relieved. No further tweaking needed. :mrgreen:

Re: Signal - cross-platform secure messaging

Have you tried Telegram? The portable Windows desktop client is officially supported (https://desktop.telegram.org/; I haven't tested it yet, though.).

EDIT: I can see that you did... post post. Duh. :|

Re: ghostwriter

Really nice Markdown implementation, thank you. 8) A couple of remarks from my brief testing... - Ghostwriter wiki has a page for integration with extra document processors but, since it requires installation, it doesn't seem to apply to the portable version. Bummer. - Disk cost for the extracted po...

Re: Text Editor Pro (was EditBone)

As one of the original translators of EditBone , I had to give up on it pretty quickly due to the sheer size of the task. Not only did the workload keep increasing but several previously translated strings would require translating again due to minor interface changes... I tried to finish a new tran...

Something that may interest users of AutoHotkey -- who are probably aware of it anyway, so this is only FTR since there's no mention of it around TPFC: https://sourceforge.net/projects/autogui/ AutoGUI is an Integrated Development Environment for AutoHotkey which combines a script editor with a GUI ...
